Pokemon/secret key


yes, i have the item finder, ive been using it to fond the secret key in the cinnabar mansion in pokemon red, i have yet been able to find it,and/or pick it up i only get "yes! an item is nearby!" can you help me figure out how i obtain that key i know how to get to the area just can't pick it up. thank you friend!


Hmm... The Secret Key should just be in a regular Pokeball item, visible on screen without the Itemfinder...
Are you sure that you are in the room with the eight potted plants? There is a hidden item in that room, but it's not the Secret Key...

If the Secret Key isn't visible, and you haven't picked it up, then are you using any cheat codes? Because they can sometimes have the negative effect of causing these kind of problems that prevent you from finishing the game... (One code stopped Giovanni from battling me at Silph Co. I had to restart so I could finish it...)

If the game's playing up or glitching, then there's not much advice I can give you I'm afraid...

Walkthroughs on ALL main series games as well as several spin-offs. I can give advice on basic gameplay, Pokemon locations & breeding tips for said games, as well as Gym and Elite 4 battle tips. I don't know very much about the card game, as I haven't played or collected it in years, so please don't ask. I also don't know much about the Events, where to go to get them, or when the next one will be, especially outside of Australia, so once again, don't ask.


I've completed the Pokedexes several times in most of the hand-held games, including: Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Fire Red, Leaf Green, Diamond and Pearl. I also have the Five-Star Black Trainer card in Diamond, and have played Yellow so many times, I now get bored after 5 minutes. I use my Red game for Missingno experiments, and to see what kinda cheat codes work. I also filled the Browser in PKMN ranger 2 in less than a week.

If the Pokemon Tower fan-fiction site counts as a publication, then yeah, I've been on there. Also, I'm on DeviantART, although those were just short fanfics as tributes to MiyaToriaka's brilliant artwork...

I technically didn't even finish grade 10, but I've been playing the Pokemon games for over ten years now.
