    Hi guyz, I wanted to know how can I get a Pikachu with Lightning Rod on Pokemon Emerald WITHOUT cheating.

    I captured more than 90 Pikachus and nothing, no Lightning Rod.

    Help plz, without it I won't rest my mind and progress through the game :/

    Lightningrod is a "hidden" ability, which means it only comes in through certain events and dream world stuff in later versions.

    Pikachu cannot have it in Gen-III.

    Too slow, but I was going to say just what Rydian said.
    So you wasted your time and 90 Pokeballs =/

    Woof, thats too bad. I cant imagine what it must be like to capture 90 pikas to learn that it doesnt get it in Gen 3 :(

    Sidenote where do you catch a Pika in Emerald?
