How to get Lucky Eggs in Pokémon FireRed & LeafGreen – FandomSpot

The only way to get a Lucky Egg in FRLG is to catch a Chansey in the Safari Zone north of Fuchsia City. If you catch a Chansey, there is a 5% chance it will contain the Lucky Egg, which you can then take and give to any Pokemon.

Chansey can be found in the middle area and area 2 of the Safari zone, and they have a 1% and 4% chance of spawning, respectively.

The Lucky Egg is a held item that can be given to any Pokémon. Whichever Pokémon is holding this item gains additional experience points when it defeats another Pokémon. This way you can level up your Pokemon very quickly.

Unfortunately, the Lucky Egg is quite difficult to obtain and can only be found on wild chanseys.

Find Chansey in the Safari Zone

Chansey can only be found in the Safari Zone in FRLG, which is located in Fuchsia City.

Just go to Fuchsia and go as far north as you can in town.

Keep in mind that you need 500 Pokédollars to enter the Safari Zone, and you’ll likely have to go a few times. So save your money accordingly.

Paying to enter the Safari Zone will give you 30 Safari Balls and a limited number of steps (aka time) within the zone. You must use this time wisely to maximize your chances of catching a Chansey with a lucky egg in its pouch.

Chances of a chansey

In the Safari Zone, not all zones are created equal.

Chansey can be extremely hard to find or just a little hard depending on where you are looking.

area Chansey levels encounter rate Lucky Egg Chance
center area 23 1% 5%
area 2 26 4% 5%

As you can see from the table, you have a higher chance of finding Chansey in Area 2. However, it will also be a higher level, which means it will be more difficult to catch.

However, Chansey will be difficult to catch either way, so Area 2 is the best place to go.

Location 1: The central area

The center area has the advantage of being right at the entrance to the safari zone.

That means you’ll waste fewer of your valuable steps getting there.

However, with a 1% encounter rate, Chansey will be harder to find. If you don’t already have Surf, this might be a better option for you.

Location 2: Area 2

Now if you want a whopping 4% encounter rate then head to Area 2. You can get there in two ways.

Method 1: Surf north from the Center Area (fastest option)

Method 2: Go to the northwest section of Area 1 and keep going west (slower)

Since you have limited movement in the Safari Zone, I strongly recommend surfing your way up to Area 2. However, if you don’t have surfing, you’ll have to go the long way and hope you get lucky.

Catch your chansey

Once you’ve found Chansey, you’ll have to choose whether to throw a safari ball, rock, or bait at it.

Many players have done the math, and the best option seems to be to just throw Safari Balls until it finally works.

Most likely, if you throw a bait or a rock, the chansey will just run away. So all you have to do is hope that the safari ball works and that the chansey is patient and stays when it doesn’t.

You may have to catch a few chanseys before all is said and done. I recommend leaving some openings in your group before going into the Safari Zone so you can start looking for a lucky egg right away.

If the Chansey you caught is holding a Lucky Egg, you’ll be able to see it immediately when you check your party.

How to get the lucky egg:

  1. Press start and go to your Pokemon
  2. Select Chansey and choose Item
  3. Select “Take” and the Lucky Egg will go into the item pouch in your pocket

Once you’ve taken the Lucky Egg, you can give it to any Pokemon. If you’re really lucky, you can even go back to the Safari Zone and get a few more! How to get Lucky Eggs in Pokémon FireRed & LeafGreen – FandomSpot
