There’s only one Quick Claw in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, and it’s located in Area 2 of the Safari Zone in Fuchsia City.
You’ll find it laying on the ground in the back portion of Area 2. This is the Area just before reaching the Challenge House where you receive Surf.
The Quick Claw is found toward the end of the Safari Zone. It’s just lying on the ground and doesn’t require any HMs to reach.
So the only prerequisites are:
- Be able to make it to Fuchsia City/The Safari Zone
- Have 500 Poké Dollars
If you can enter the Safari Zone, you can get the Quick Claw!
The Quick Claw Location (Step-by-Step)
To get the Quick Claw, make your way to the Safari Zone in Fuchsia City (the Safari Zone is in the back of the City.)
Just enter the Safari Zone building and walk through the back door (note that you’ll need 500 Poké Dollars to enter.)
Once you’re in the Safari Zone, follow these steps to find the Quick Claw:
Step 1: Head east as soon as you enter the Safari Zone (walk past the grass patch)
Step 2: After walking east, continue to the next area through the dirt path on the right side.
Step 3: Walk east into the patch of grass, and then walk up the first stairs you see.
Then go west across the hill, just above the patch of grass.
Step 4: After walking down the steps of the first hill, walk north until you see another rocky platform. Then go up that set of stairs.
This time you’ll walk east across the hill and then down the staircase on the right.
Step 5: After walking down the steps, walk around to the back of the hill and continue west to reach the next zone.
Step 6: Take the pathway to the final Zone.
Step 7: In the next area, take the first set of stairs when you enter the new Zone. Then follow the hill until around you see another set of stairs going down.
Step 8: Walk down the stairs and a Poké Ball will be lying in a patch of dirt just west of the hill.
Step 9: Pick the Poké Ball up to receive the Quick Claw.
What Does the Quick Claw Do?
The Quick Claw is an insanely good held item that gives the Pokémon holding it a 20% chance of going first, no matter what.
The reason the Quick Claw is so good is because, especially in late-game battles, KOs can happen with a single move. So it’s important to get your move off first.
Many trainers will equip a Quick Claw to their fastest Pokémon, to give them an edge in speed ties (when both Pokémon have the same speed, who goes first is decided by chance.)
However, it’s not uncommon to equip the Quick Claw to slow Pokémon just to give them a shot at going first every now and then.
All that said, the Quick Claw is fairly easy to get and well-worth the time — because it’s a powerful held item for any stage of the game.
