Your adventure starts in the the small Pallet Town. After choosing the name for your hero, explore the town and talk to everyone. Then head north. Before you get a chance to leave the town limits, Professor Oak, the town's expert on pokemon, will stop you and take you to his lab. He will give you a little information on pokemon and their habits, then he will let you pick a pokemon of your own to begin training. You can get Bulbasaur, a grass type pokemon, Charmander, a fire type pokemon, or Squirtle, a water type. After picking your pokemon, Professor Oak's grandson will challenge you to a duel. Beat up his pokemon to win some cash, then head north to Viridian City. While you travel you will have to fight some wild pokemon. You can't catch them yet, but you can fight them to build up experience. You can find Pidgey, a flying type, and Rattata, a normal type pokemon. If your pokemon gets hurt or faints, just take him back to your house and your mom will heal him.
When you reach Viridian City head to the Pokemon Mart. The shopkeeper will give you a package to deliver to Professor Oak. Take it to Oak and he will give you the Pokedex. The Pokedex will tell you all the pokemon you have seen or captured. Now go back to the Pokemon Mart in Viridian City and stock up on items. You should get a few Poke Balls so you can catch pokemon, and maybe an antidote or two so you can cure poison. Then check out the rest of the city. You also might want to head south again to catch the Rattata and Pidgey. Once you have completed your business, head north out of Viridian City to Viridian Forest. In the forest you can find a bunch of different pokemon including Caterpie and Metapod, both bug type, Weedle and Kakuna, both poison type, and Pikachu, an Electric type pokemon. You should try to capture and build up as many different kinds as you can. There are also many rival pokemon trainers in the forest. You can't catch their pokemon, but you can beat them to gain experience. Some of the trainers pokemon are pretty tough, so it would be a good idea to build up one of your pokemon up to a high level so you can beat them. As you travel the forest you can find a Potion, a Antidote, and a Poke Ball. If you keep heading north, you should eventually find the way out to Pewter City. floor. Talk to the guy with glasses. If you have caught more than 30 pokemon he will give you the Itemfinder. If not, come back when you have. Then Go back to the cave you passed a minute back. In the cave you can catch a Diglett (both), and a Dugtrio (both). The Dugtrio is very rare, so if you see him be sure to catch him. Go through the cave to an area of Viridian Forest you've never been to. Go south to find the HP UP and Moon Stone items. In the house, talk to the Prof.'s Aid to get the Flash HM. Then go back up to Pewter City. Go to the eastern city exit and Cut down the bush. Follow the trail. You will meet a bunch of trainers. In the little area of grass, you can catch a Voltorb (both). Then head down to the pokecenter to heal your pokemon. Make sure to teach the Flash skill you got to one pokemon and bring him with you. When you are ready, enter the tunnel. Immediately use the Flash skill, and the cave will be lighted up. You can catch 2 new pokemon here, the Machop (both), and the Onyx (both). The Onyx is very hard to catch, so you might want to wait until you get a better kind of pokeball. You will also find a few trainers in the cave. Beat them, find the exit, and head to Lavender Town. Chapter 4: The Silph Scope Lavander Town has a few mysteries in it. First, the leader of the Volunteer Pokemon Center, Mr. Fuji, is missing. Second, you cannot identify the ghost pokemon in Pokemon Tower. You will need a Silph Scope to do this, so you must go to Celadon City. Exit left out of the city, and just follow the path to the underground tunnel. There is also a grassy spot in the middle where you can catch a Vulpix (blue), and a Arcanine (red). Take the underground path and follow it to Celedon City. Cleadon is the biggest city on the map, and you can get tons of stuff here. First, check out the Pokemart. You can get all kinds of items here. Now you need the Silph Scope. Go to the game corner casino and talk to the guy by the poster. Beat him, and hit the poster. It will open the secret door leading to the secret Team Rocket base. This is a pretty easy maze. You need the lift key to access the elevator, so get that, then hop on. Take the elevator to the top floor, and battle with the boss, Giovanni. He has a few worhty pokemon, but he doesen't really present that much of a problem. Beat him to collect the Silph Scope. Now go the Celadon City Gym. The leader is Erika, and she specializes in graas type pokemon. She has a Victreebel, level 29, a Tangela, level 24, and a Vileplume, level 29. Beat her to collect the Rainbow Badge, which assures all pokemon under level 50 will obey you. Next, head back to the Pokemon Tower. You can catch a Gastly (both), a Haunter (both), and a Cubone (both). When you get to the top, you will fight a Marowak. You can;t catch it, but when you beat it you will have access to the top level. Beat the Team Rocket trainer and save Mr. Fuji. Back in his house, if you talk to him he will give you the Poke Flute, which allows you to awaken the sleeping Snorlax that has been blocking your way. Chapter 5: To The Safari Zone! Your next goal is to get into Saffron City. To do this, you need to get past the security guards. Go to the Celadon City Pokemart and go to the top floor. Push A on the top wall to access the vending machine. Buy any drink and head to the guard (east out of Celadon City and west out of Lavender Town). When you give the drink to the guard all the guards will let you through. In Saffron City, you will se that Team Rocket has occupied most of the city. There are only a few places you can explore. First, go to the fighting dojo and beat all the trainers. You can pick Hitmonlee or Hitmonchan, both cool fighting pokemon. Now head over to the Silph Co. building at the center of town. When you get into the building, head directly to the elevator and to the 5th floor. You need to do this because you need the Card Key to open all the electronic doors in the building. The Card Key is a little tricky to get. Go to the bottom of the screen. There is a trainer and a teleporter blocking the path to the ball that holds the Card Key. The solution: enter the teleporter, then reenter it. That means you need to step on the teleporter, then step on the teleporter you just came through. You will be standing on the one you first went in, and the path to the ball will no longer be blocked. Now, go back to the 2nd floor and start exploring the entire building. If you don't take any teleporters, you will end up at the 11th floor, with a room you've never been in behind a wall you can't get past. Then solution is to go back down to the 3rd floor. Go towards the middle of the room and head left into the first of two rooms. Take the teleporter in the room, and you will be warped into a small room with Gary in it. Challenge and beat Gary, then talk to the guy in the room. He will give you a Lapras, a ice type pokemon. Take the next teleporter, and you will be in the room you saw from the 11th floor. Beat the trainer, open the door, and challenge... Giovanni again! Hes not that much tougher than the last time you fought him, so beat him and talk to the Silph Co. president. He will give you the best ball in the game, the Master Ball. You only get 1 Master Ball, so use it wisely. After that, go out and head to the gym. The man blocking the door has left, so enter the gym. The trainers here use psychic type pokemon, so be ready. The gym is somewhat of a maze Chapter 2: The Mt. Moon Area There is a bunch of stuff to see in Pewter City. There is a Museum, a Pokemon Center, a Pokemon Mart, and a Gym. Check out the city, then head over to the Gym. There are two rival trainers to fight, including one named Brock. Brock is the leader of the Gym, and if you want to challenge him, you have to go through one his friends. Before you take on Brock, make sure you have a couple of water, electricty, or grass type pokemon at level 17 or above. This will ensure your victory. Brock has two rock type pokemon, one at level 12, and one at level 14. When you beat him you will recieve the boulderbadge. It raises all of your pokemon attack power a little. You will also get something called "TM34". These Technical Machines will teach any one of your pokemon a special skill. TM34 will give one pokemon the Bide skill, which reflects an enemies attack back at them. After you are ready to move on, heal your pokemon and head east out of town. On the way to Mt. Moon there are a whole bunch of rival trainers. They aren't nearly as strong as Brock, but they still can be tough. You can also find two new pokemon on the way to Mt. Moon. There is the Jigglypuff, a normal type pokemon, and a Spearow, a flying type. Keep on going to reach Mt. Moon. In Mt. Moon there is many things to get. There are many rival trainers in the mountain, and some of them belong to Team Rocket, a group of evil pokemon trainers. The items you can find are two Potions, a Rare Candy, a Escape Rope, a Moon Stone, a TM12, a TM01, and a HP UP item. You can also find a couple more pokemon. There is the Zubat, a poison type, a Paras, a grass type pokemon, the Clefairy, a normal type, and the Geodude, a very strong rock type pokemon. Explore the entire area of Mt. Moon until you get all the items you want, then go find the exit. Its pretty easy to find. Once you are out, just follow the path to Cerulean City. On the way you can get one more new pokemon. If you have the blue version of the game you can get a Sandshrew, a ground type pokemon, and if you have the red version you can get a Ekans, a poison type. Now go to Cerulean City. There are a bunch of places to go to in the city, including a bike shop. You can buy a bike, but it will cost you a lot. Now go to the Gym. Here you will challenge the leader, Misty, once you get through two other trainers. Misty has two water type pokemon at level 18 and 21. I suggest building up a Geodude and Pikachu to level 23 or 24, plus another ground, rock, or fire type to at least level 22. After you beat her you will get a TM11 and the Cascadebadge. Heal your pokemon and head north. Right when you start on the path you will be confronted by Gary. He is a hard opponent, cause he has 4 different pokemon, all of which are in different classes. You will probably need a few different pokemon too if you you want to beat him. After beating Gary, you cam continue north, but be warned: there tons of rival trainers this way, and you have to fight them! After beating Gary, head back to the Pokecenter and heal up. Then take on all the trainers. This is actually one of the best places, at this point in the game, to build levels at, because of the amount of trainers. When you fight them, rotate different pokemon in every battle, so they all get a few levels up. When you beat them, the path will be cleared, so you can make your way to the Sea Cottage. Chapter 3: The Saint Anne Head north after the bridge. There are a few trainers, and you can catch an Abra (both), a Oddish (red), and a Bellsprout (blue). Then go to the house. There you meet Bill. Talk to him and help mih out. He'll give you the S.S. Anne ticket. Go back to Cerulean City, and find the house with the police officer standing next to it. Go through the house and down the path. Here you will find the Pokemon Daycare. You can leave your pokemon here and they will gain levels. But beware. Your pokemon cannot evolve while in here, and you can't choose what skills they learn. After that, keep going down and take the underground path. When you get out of the path, you will be in a big grassy area with some more trainers. In the grass you can find Meowth (blue), and Mankey (red). Keep going south to reach Vermillion City. Take care of business, then go to the docks and enter the ship. The ship is a great place to build levels cause there are tons of trainers. The only really hard battle in here is Gary, but if you have a few strong pokemon you should be able to waste him. After defeating Gary talk to the captain of the ship and make him feel better. For this he will give you your first HM, called Cut. Once you are done with the boat, go back to Vermillion and get any grass or plant type pokemon in your party. Teach cut to the grass or plant pokemon, then go to the Gym. To get into the Gym, you must use the Cut technique on the funny looking bush. Then go in and beat the trainers. To get to the Gym Leader, Lt. Surge, you must open a locked door. To unlock the door, you must hit the garbage cans in the right order. First, hit all the cans until you get the message saying you have unlocked the first switch. Then hit another can. If you pick the correct can you can go in and fight Surge. If it wasn't you need to start over. Surge has 3 electric pokemon at levels 18, 21, and 24. If you have the blue version, use a strong Sandshrew or Sandslash. They work great. If you got red, just use any pokemon that isn't water or fire class. Beat Surge, get the Thunderbadge and a TM, and head east out of the city. Pass the cave for now and keep on going. You will be in a huge grass area with lots of trainers and a one new pokemon to catch. You can get the Drowzee (both). Then keep going east until you get to a building. Go in and go to the top , consisting of 15 rooms, each connected by teleporters. To go directly to Sabrina, the gym's leader, just keep on going in the teleporter to the top or bottom of the one you just came out of. You will eventually get to her. She has four psychic pokemon, a Kadabra, level 38, a Mr. Mime, level 37, a Venomoth, level 38, and a Alakazam, level 43. Beat her to get the Marsh Badge, which ensurs any pokemon up to level 70 will obey you. You will also get the TM 46, which teaches a psychic pokemon psywave. Next, head to Lavender Town and exit the town through the south. There are lots of trainers to fight on the docks, all of which have water type pokemon. Keep going until you get to the sleeping pokemon. Play the Poke Flute to awaken the sleeping Snorlax. You probably won't be able to catch him right now, because you don't have a powerful enough type pokeball, but don't worry cause there are two Snorlax in the game. Keep heading south through the docks, and enter the house. The man will give you the Super Rod, the second bets rod in the game. Pretty soon you will get to a grassy area that you will have to cut to get into. Here, and in all the grassy areas on this route, you can get a Venomoth (both), a Ditto (both), a Gloom (red), and a Weepinbell (blue). Eventually you will get to the point where you can't go south anymore, so turn and head west now. There is a small maze here, with 11 trainers throughout it. When you get to the end, head south again. You will fight more trainers on this path. Just keep going until you get to the building. Finally a rest! You will now be in the city that holds the mystical Safari Zone: Fuchsia City. If you have gotten 50 or more types of pokemon by now, go to the building between the city and the outside, the one you enter to get into the city. Climb the stairs and talk to the guy with glasses. He is another one of Prof. Oaks aids, and he will give you the Exp. All if you have over 50 types of pokemon. Now go to the city, heal up and buy supplies, and get ready for the Safari Zone. Chapter 6: Safari Zone and Power Plant The Safari Zone is a strange place. There are many pokemon that can only be found in the Safari Zone. It consists of three zones, all of which contain a slightly different batch of pokemon. The new pokemon you can catch are Nidorino (both), Nidorina (both), Rhyhorn (both), Exeggcute (both), Parascect (both), Scyther (red), Pinsir (blue), Kangaskhan (both), Doduo (both), Venomoth (both), And Tauros (both). The 4 pokemon that are very very very hard to catch are the Chansey, Scyther, Tauros, and Kangaskhan, mainly because of thier rareity. It is hard enough to find these pokemon, and really hard to catch them. For Scyther/Pinsir, I suggest just buying them at the game corner. This will save you a lot of trouble. A good stratigy when catching Kangaskhan is to throw a safari ball at it right away. Almost 100 percent of the time they will bust out and run, but a very small percentage of the time they will stay in the ball. The Chansey is also kinda hard to get. The trick is to keep throwing safari balls at him. Throwing rocks at these pokemon usually just makes them run, and throwing bait doesn't help much either because when you throw a ball at them after bait, the ball will miss. Throw ball after ball at chansey, and sometimes he will stay in the ball. You can usually throw 3 or 4 balls at him before he runs, and sometimes you can throw 5. He will usually stay in the ball the 5th time. The last, and I think hardest pokemon to catch, is Tauros. Once again, just throw a safari ball at him on the first turn. 99 out of 100 times he will break out, but that 1 time is the one that you will catch him. The Safari Zone can be a maddening place. I can not stress enough that catching these pokemon is pure luck. You're just going to have to throw the ball and take your chances. Another part of the Safari Zone is the secret house and the gold teeth. The secret house is located in the third zone. To get there, take the east exit out of the entrance area. Go up through the first zone, and into the second. In the second zone, head into the first grassy patch you see, and head north. Go up and over the big rock. Do not take the south exit just yet. Go north again, and up and around until you are at a second exit to the south. Take this exit. Go south a little bit in the third zone and pick up the Gold Teeth. Then Enter the building in the top-left corner of the zone. Talk to the guy there to receive your Surf HM. Next, get out of the zone and go to the bottom right hand corner of the city. Talk to the warden to receive the Strength HM. Now, go to the city Gym. The trainers in this Gym use status-problem causing pokemon. The Gym is made up of a few invisible walls. Just go through, beating the trainers as you move along, until you get to the leader, Koga. He has Koffing, level 37, Muk, level 39, Koffing, level 37, and Wheezing, level 43. Not to tough. You will get the Soul Badge and TM 06. Heal up your pokemon and make sure to teach one of them Surf. Now you need to go to the Power Plant, but this might be a good time to get the Fly HM. Exit out of Fuchsia City to the west, and head up the cycling road. There are a few trainers here, and a few new pokemon. You can catch Spearow (both) and Raticate (both) in the grassy areas. Finish the course and go through the building. Keep on going until you see a bush that can be Cut down. Use the Cut skill on the bush and go up through the second building. Keep going until you see a small house. Enter the house, talk to the lady, and collect the final HM, Fly. Once you have taught Fly to a pokemon, Fly back to Cerulean City. Take the east exit out of town and go as far east as you can. You will see a small break in the rocks blocking off the water. Get right in front of the water and use the Surf skill. Swim up and around until you get to the other shore, and enter the Power Plant. There are a couple of cool items to get and a few new pokemon too. You can catch Magnemite (both), Magneton (both), Raichu (blue), and Electrabuzz (red). The main reason for comming to the Power Plant is Zapdos. Zapdos is one of the legendary pokemon, and he will only appear in your game once. He is found near the exit of the Plant. I strongly suggest not using your master ball at this time. The master ball should be reserved for Mewtwo Mewtwo will be explained in a later chapter). Zapdos is at level 50, so he is really kind of hard to catch. The best idea (and this works on all 3 of the legendary pokemon) is to freeze them with and ice attack like icebeam, ice punch, or blizzard. One he is almost dead and frozen, just throw a bunch of ultra balls at him. He will eventually stay in the ball. Once you are done with the Power Plant, use Fly again to take you back to Fuchsia City. Chapter 7: To Cinnabar Island Once in Fuchsia, exit the city to the south. you will see a huge body of water. Surf into it and start swimming north. You can catch a Tentacruel in both versions here. Just follow the water until you get to land. You will see the Seafoam Islands, which is a cave. To get through to Cinnabar Island, you will need a pokemon who has the Strength ability. Enter the cave and use Strength. Then go to the boulders and push them into the holes. After you push the boulder into the hole, jump in the hole and push the boulder down again. Continue this until you have the boulder in the water. Then go up to the top floor and push the sec POKEMON ***WALKTHROUGH*** Pallet Town ~~~~~~~~~~~~ You start out in Pallet Town, There you will get your first Pokemon from Prof. Oak. You get him to bring you to his laboratory, you must first go North into the tall grass, you will hear someone say, "Don't go in there!" It's Prof. Oak, He'll take you to his lab and you'll have the choice of three Pokemon, Charmander the fire Pokmon, Squirtle the water pokmon, or Bulbasaur the grass Pokmon. If you pick any one of these Pokmon, Gary will pick the Elementally superior. Water beats Fire, Grass beat Water, Fire beats Grass. Pick Bulbasaur, he seems to win the most battles and beat the most trainers, but if you want you can take one of the others. Gary will challenge you right after that, hes not too hard to beat, just keep attacking and he'll go down (Your Pokmon will grow a level).After that you will have to go North to Viridian City. Road to Viridian City ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Along the road the first guy you see will give you a potion. Also you cannot catch Pokmon right now so just defeat the Pidgeys and Rattatas for exp. points. If your Pokmon get hurt you can take them to your house and your mom will heal them. Viridian City ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Once you reach Viridian City you should go to the Pokcenter and heal your Pokmon. Go to the Mart and the clerk will hand a parcel to you to deliver to Prof. Oak, You can jump over the little barriers, you will save time and also you'll encounter less battles. Upon delivery, Prof. Oak will hand you the PokDex Gary will note to get a map from his sister (you can too).You won't have to battle Gary this time so get the map and head back to Viridian. There you should buy Pokballs, Potions are not needed really because you are close to a pokcenter. In the area, Pidgeys and Rattatas are the only Pokemon found.(For exp. points, you can head West and battle Gary, but your Pokemon should be level 12 or above).Now Head North to Viridian Forest. If you go west of viridian (where you battle gary again) you can catch Nidoran male and female. Viridian Forest ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You cannot pick up the items to the right just yet, but you will go back later in the game. In the forest there are 3 trainers, they use bugs so if you chose Charmander this should be REALLY easy, if you picked Squirtle or Bulbasaur then it will still be easy but not as easy as Charmander. Go West from the beginning and you can pick up a Pokball, but you do have to walk through the grass. Go Northeast of the beginning to fight a trainer(You have to fight this one), His Pokemon are: Weedle level 6 (Bulbasaur is immune to the poison in poison sting),and Caterpie level 6. From there go North along the road (The next trainer is optional) Keep going North and you'll find a Antidote. Go along the road and you'll find a split towards the end, go South and you'll find another item. A certain Pokemon you should look for is Pikachu, Although Pikachu is here, he is weak and doesn't have many moves. But he is effective against Misty. Once out of the forest, You'll have to go to Pewter City. Pewter City ~~~~~~~~~~~ In Pewter city you must fight Brock. If you don't you cannot proceed to Mt. Moon. Brock's Pokmon are Geodude level 12, and Onix level. 14. Brock's Pokmon are easily beaten by Squirtle or Bulbasaur, Charmander's just out of luck and will have to make it with what he has (Evolving a Caterpie and/or a Weedle is a good choice if you're using Charmander).The BOULDER BADGE increases you Pokmon's power a bit, also flash can now be used(Badge moves such as FLASH, CUT, FLY, STRENGTH, and SURF can only be used when a HM is equipped to a pokmon.)Get some supplies and head to Mt. Moon. You'll want to get some potions, an Escape Rope or two, and some more Pokballs if you need them. Now whould be a good time to level up your begining Pokmon, you can gain them to as high of a level as you want and they will still obey you (my friend had a level 38 Blastoise before he beat misty!!) Get it to about level 20 or so. Mt. Moon ~~~~~~~~ Before entering Mt. Moon you should catch a Jigglypuff in the grass outside Mt. Moon. Mt. Moon is long. Once inside you can find various items, and many people to battle. Team Rockets first appearance comes in here, They're easy so don't worry. At the end you'll fight a Super Nerd, After you beat him you'llget the choice of two fossils, The Helix fossil or the Dome fossil. Which oneyou pick matters on what Pokemon you'll get later, Helix: Omanyte, Dome: Kabuto. You can't get these Pokemon until later in the game so store it in your PC as soon as you get to Cerulean City. You should get a Clefairy, Zubat, Geodude, and Paras here. Cerulean City ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Did you get a Pikachu in Viridian Forest? If you did and you own a Squirtle or a Charmander gain them to high levels before the fight, If you have Bulbasaur it'll still be easy so don't worry. If you need to you can catch Oddish\Bellsprout to help you You only HAVE to fight one other trainer, the one near the beginning of the gym is optional. Misty is difficult if you chose Charmander. Her Pokmon are Staryu at level 18 and Starmie at level 21. If you win you'll receive the CASCADE BADGE, it allows ALL Pokemon up to level 30 to obey, also lets you use CUT. If you go to the 1st house on the Northwest side of the city, you can go into the backyard and find a Rare Candy, You'll have to search a bit but its in the middle of the two rows going horizontally (Rows meaning spaces North to South in space).Bikes are too expensive rightnow (But you'll get one soon enough). Road to Bill's house/Bill's house ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ From Cerulean City, head North and fight Gary, go across the bridge and fight all the trainers there. Go into the grass to the West and get a grass Pokmon (Bellsprout in Blue and Oddish in Red) and get an Abra also. To catch an Abra, just throw a Pokball at it (its not a guaranteed catch but its the best way right now).Go East to get to Bill's house, there are lots of trainers in the way so you mayhave to go to the Pokcenter in Cerulean. Once you get to Bill's house you'll see a Pokmon but no Bill. Talk to the Pokmon and do as he asks. After that Bill gives you a ticket to the S. S. Anne. Go back to Cerulean and you'll see that the Police man \ woman?? has moved so you can get into the house. You'll find a ROCKET in the back, beat him and get TM #28 (DIG) go back in the house and the guy doesn't care anymore so just keep it! Head South and you'll find a tunnel, go through it and you'll end up in Vermilion City (In the tunnel there is a Full Restore but You'll have to search for it because its invisible, like the Rare Candy). Catch a Mankey or a Meowth on your way to the tunnel. Vermilion City ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In Vermilion you have a few things to do: 1.Get the Old Rod from the fishing guru (Next to the Pokcenter), 2.Beat Lt. Surge and get the Thunder Badge, 3.Get the Bike Voucher from the Pokmon Fan club president, 4.And also get on the S .S. Anne. First thing first though, Lt. Surge is an electric type Pokmon gym leader so use a Diglett from the cave to the East or a Geodude from Mt. Moon. The They should be almost totally immune to the attacks of the electric Pokmon. To fight Lt. Surge you have to search the trash cans for a switch (It's random), and the a neighboring can for the second switch. Lt. Surge's Pokmon are Voltorb at level 21, Pikachu at level 18, and Raichu at level 24, the THUNDER BADGE speeds up your pokmon a bit and lets you use FLY. Get the Bicycle with the Bike Voucher and use that, The Bike speeds your journey up A LOT. There is someone in one of the houses here that trade a spearow for a farfetche'd. S.S. Anne ~~~~~~~~~ On the S. S. Anne there are many good trainers so make sure your Pokmon's levels are high and look for the Capt. Because the Capt. gives you the CUT HM. If you go into the kitchen you will find a Great Ball in one of the trash cans. Try to search all the rooms because there some great things in there. From here you should go through the Digletts cave. Diglett's Cave ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Not much here, Ride your bike through and catch a Diglett. Once through the cave you'll see a house. There you can get the Flash HM and the items you couldnt before (with CUT equipped onto a Pokemon).Go back and East through the mini-maze. You can trade a abra for a Mr. Mime here. Mini-Maze ~~~~~~~~~ Just stay on the middle track and go North on the last turn if you're going on a track where at the beginning there was a man near a sign your going the wrong way, you should see a track going left, a man, and another man but not in the same place. Go Northeast and you should be on a direct track where a Jr. Trainer(Female) is waiting for you, fight her and go East. Here you can catch: Ekans (Red), Sandshrew (Blue), Spearow, and Drowzee. Rock Tunnel ~~~~~~~~~~~ Just before the Rock Tunnel you should be at a river with a nearby field and a little barricade you can jump over. Go South to the Pokcenter and heal your Pokmon, now go North and catch a Voltorb. Equip Flash on it and proceed into the cave. Go through the cave, its semi-direct not TOO confusing. Here you should catch: Zubat and Geodude (if you don't have them) Onix and Machop. Lavander Town ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Once out of the cave you should be just North of Lavender Town.You don't have to fight the trainers so just go to the Pokcenter and heal up. Now Proceed West and through the tunnel. (You'll have to fight at least 1 trainer) Now you should end up in Celadon City. Catch a Growlith (red) or Vulpix (blue)to the left of here. Celadon City ~~~~~~~~~~~~ You have a number of things to do here in Celadon: 1.Defeat Erika and get the Rainbow Badge, 2.Get the Silph scope, 3.Get Eevee, 4.Get the Coin Box for the Game Corner, 5.Get a Fresh Water From the Mart (top floor) and give it to the road guard. Erika isnt too hard to beat, Just Use a fire or bird Pokemon thats around the same level as her Pokmon. You're gonna have to battle at least 3 trainers. You MUST come with a Pokemon with CUT equipped. The easiest way to go is on the right and hug the left side. Erika's Pokmon: Victreebel lvl29, Tangela lvl 24,Vineplume lvl 29. The RAINBOW BADGE make Pokmon up to level 50 obey, and you can use STRENGTH. Next your gonna have to go into the Game Corner, fight the guy who is guarding the poster and press the switch behind it. Go in the door and go down another flight of stairs. There will be a number of puzzles to solve and Rockets to fight. One guy at the bottom should drop a lift key. Now take the lift and go to the bottom floor, You'll have to fight two Rockets and then fight Giovanni, he has a level 24 Rhyhorn a level 25 Onix and a level 29 Kangaskhan. Now after you've fought Giovanni,he should drop the Silph scope, the one for the ghosts in the Poketower. Now go back to Lavender Town. Lavander Town 2 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Nothing has changed, just go to the Poketower and fight the ghosts. When you fight the ghosts the silph scope works automatically. Once you've made it to the 2nd to the top floor a ghost will fight you (pre-programmed battle)This ghost is Marowak and you cannot catch her. Use a water Pokmon and it should be easy.Beat all the Rockets on the top floor and you'll recieve the Pokeflute from an old man. Now you should be able to wake up the sleeping Pokemon to the South (Snorlax) Also make sure to capture him because there are only 2 Snorlaxes in the entire game. In the Pokmon Tower: Gastly, Haunter, and Cubone. Saffron City ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Once you've beaten the ghosts in the Poketower you should go to Saffron City to Battle Sabrina. But First your gonna have to save the town from Team Rocket. By now, the guy in front of the Silph co. building has fallen asleep (He'll be off to the side and won't stop you). Once you go inside its a maze, First you must fight many people (this includes scientists) and find the Key Card, This will allow you to get into all the locked areas. Next you must find a portal that leads you to Gary (You'll have to battle him) once you defeat Gary, A nearby man will give you Lapras. Go through the other portal and defeat Giovanni once again. He is easy with Squirtle or Bulbasaur, since he uses ground Pokemon Water and Grass Pokmon are effective. You'll get the Master Ball from the President of Silph co. SAVE IT! Its VERY important! Store it on your PC. Now Team Rocket has left town so you can now Go and defeat Sabrina.She uses Psychic Pokmon and isn't too difficult.Still be careful, you don't have to fight any trainer besides Sabrina, just go into the opposite portal unless you want Exp. points, You'll know when you reach her. Sabrina's Pokemon are Kadabra level 38 Mr. Mime level 37 Venomoth level 37 and Alakazam level 43. Your Pokemon should be about level 30 or above. You get the MARSH BADGE for beating her, Pokmon up to lvl 70 will obey you. Next to Sabrina's Gym is the Fighting Dojo. This Gym is fighting Pokemon only, and if you beat all the trainers you get the choice of Hitmonlee or Hitmonchan. Hitmonlee is a Kicking based Pokmon and Hitmonchan is a Punching based Pokmon. Now you should head to where you met Snorlax (South of Lavender Town) along route 12 to Fuschia City. On the way to Fuchsia City you should catch: Ditto, Venonat, Bellsprout and Weepinbell (blue), Oddish and Gloom (red),Pidgey and Pidgeotto. Fuchsia City ~~~~~~~~~~~ once your in Fuschia City, The first thing you should do is go beat Koga, the poison gym leader. If you picked Bulbasaur this will be an easy task, Bulbasaur is almost completely immune to poison, for Charmander or Squirtle I'd suggest a Victreebell or Vileplume depending on which version you have. There are invisible walls here so you'll have to fight at least 3 trainers if you don't know where you're going. now I can't give exact directions but heres what you do, first go above the Pokmon statue and carefully walk to the right. Hug the right wall and walk up, you'll have to fight a Juggler. After you beat him go to the top wall and walk left, You'll have to fight another trainer here. Now carefully walk right and down to get to Koga. Now, I'm doing this from memory but his Pokmon should be around level 35-40.He'll have poison Pokmon so carry allot of antidotes unless using Bulbasaur. For beating him you receive the SOUL BADGE, the defense of your Pokmon increases a little and it allows you to use SURF. Next you should go to the Safari Zone. Here there are many Pokemon that can only be caught here, but first you must find the GOLD TEETH and the SURF HM. Get in there and get on your bike and ride East, now from here ride to the hill and up onto it, ride West and off of it, from here ride Northeast and then Westwhen you get to the wall. Now you should go Northwest over another hill, you should be in a spot where there are 3 mini-lakes, you must go Northeast around the Lakes,there should be a sign next to a bush barrier that says "Trainer Tips: The secret house is still ahead!". Go South and you should find a Pokball item which is the GOLD TEETH, from there go Northwest until you see a house, go inside and a man should give you the SURF HM. Try to go outside (Time should have run out by now) and go to the Warden's house. Give him the teeth and he'll hand you the STRENGTH HM. A Rare Candy is in the ball on the other side of the room. Next door to the warden is the Fishing Guru's brother. get the GOOD ROD from him. Go in his backyard and fish out some Pokmon. Go West and go on the Cycle Road and go up to Celadon City. Save your game and try to catch the Snorlax. Take a Pokmon with CUT and cut the nearby bush, go around the back and a woman there will give you the FLY HM. Equip SURF on either Lapras or a Water Pokmon you don't really need. Now, if you're still in Celadon City go to the grass patch just before the Cycling Road and catch a bird. Equip FLY to it and fly to Pewter City, Go North to the Museum and CUT the bush in the front. In the back talk to the guy near the item on the pedestal. He'll give it to you. Now its time to go to Cinnabar Island. Cinnabar Island ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ First you must FLY to Pallet Town. Save your game and go South. From here SURF down south, catch a tentacool on your way you should eventually find Cinnabar Island. Here you'll want to take the fossil from earlier and go into the research center to the left of the Pokcenter. Go to the 3rd door down and give the man in the back a fossil, go to the Mart and then back into the center to pick up your new Pokmon. Repeat with the amber and you'll get Aerodactyl. Now go and heal your Pokmon, buy some supplies, buy some Burn heals, and save. Go into the burned out building (This is a rough walkthrough, not exact) in here, go North and examine the statue(A), it should have a switch, press it and go upstairs. Do the same on this floor (Read the notes if you wish, they tell the story of Mew and Mewtwo). On the 3rd floor you should press the switch and go South, don't fight the scientist but instead go(there are two exits, a big one to the left and a smaller one to the right) take the exit to the left, you should land on the 1st floor but in an area you couldnt get to. Defeat the scientists and get the Secret Key. Now exit the building (If you have an Escape Rope its better) and you can now fight Blaine, the Fire gym leader he has: Growlithe 42, Rapidash 42, Ponyta 40, Arcanine 47.If you chose Squirtle or Charmander this will be a cinch. Use A strong Water Pokmon or a semi-strong water Pokmon and a semi-strong fire Pokmon to absorb the damage. You will have to defeat almost every trainer here to advance. The VOLCANO BADGE increases your Pokmon's abilities a little. Now your ready to go to the Seafoam Islands. In the mansion you can catch: Koffing, Weezing, Growlithe (red), Grimer, Muk, Vulpix (Blue), Magmar (Blue), and Ponyta. Seafoam Islands ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ >From the Pokecenter, heal your Pokmon and go to the Mart. First prepare with Ice Heals, the highest potion at that time,2 escape ropes, and lots of Ultra balls.Take a Fire Pokmon(Ponytas a great choice if you don't have Charmander),an Electric Pokmon (A well leveled Pikachu or Raichu is good),a Pokmon with STRENGTH, a Pokmon with SURF,and Your starting Pokmon (If you don't have Charmander),you should also bring a high level Butterfree or a high level grass Pokemon (With sleep powder).SURF East until you get to the Seafoam Islands. Here prepare to face level 50 Pokmon(They won't all be level 50 but I know one will...).Save and go inside, then get on your Bike and ride downstairs. Ride until you reach the water and SURF, you should be swept into another screen. Go East and you should see a blank space(only a 1 step space) search it and you should find an item. From there do North and get onto land, get on your Bike and Ride West (Not up the stairs) and go up the new set of stairs (DO NOT SURF! You'll be swept away).You should go Southeast and Push the Top Left boulder North 2 spaces, Push the opposite boulder you just pushed into the hole (but don't go in yourself). And push the remaining boulder in the hole opposite to the one you just were using. Once you've completed that, jump in the hole. Now SURF North until you reach a island with a Pokmon just standing there. Save your game and fight him, use your fire Pokemon and weaken him.Now take the Pokmon with sleep powder and put him to sleep. Now throw Ultra Balls until you catch him (Make sure you do or else you'll have to start all over). Articuno is level 50 and very difficult to beat, also he only appears once per game (like all other Pokmon just standing there).Now use an escape rope and save. Here you can catch: Seel, Dewgong, Slowpoke, Slowbro, Psyduck, Golduck, Horsea, Seadra, Krabby, Kingler, Zubat, Golbat, Shellder, Staryu Viridian City 2 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ >From Cinnabar Island Fly to Viridian City. Save and go to the gym. Squirtle and Bulbasaur will easily beat all Pokmon in here, Charmander should be substituted for a high level bird Pokmon (level 50 Fearow is a good choice) a high level Water or Grass Pokmon (In here either is good) If you have a high level dugtrio or other guy with dig I would use him against the posion type Pokmon. I won't reveal the gym leader for spoiler reasons but his/her Pokmon are: Dugtrio 42, Rhydon 50, Nidoking 45, Nidoqueen 43,and Rhyhorn 45. Beating him/her gives you the EARTH BADGE which makes all Pokmon obey. Now that you have all 8 badges, go to Pokmon league. Pokmon League/Victory Road ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You'll have to fight Gary along the way to Victory Road. He's hard but easy enough to beat. You have to bring a Pokmon with STRENGTH and one with SURF. Bring some Ultra Balls, Max Potions, Escape Ropes, and a few Full Heals. Now go through Victory Road and be careful (Moltres is in there but I cannot give directions).I can't give directions but heres some tips: 1.If you see a boulder with somewhere to push it, Do it, 2.Try To avoid trainers because its hard enough without them, 3.Try to run from most battles, the enemies here are just too strong to fight them all. Once through victory road you'll be at Indigo Plateau. The Elite 4 ~~~~~~~~~~~ Now its time to beat the Elite 4,but you have to prepare first. Get LOTS of Full Restores (You'll need them more than anything). You don't need much else in items, a Pokeflute you should take too. Now, bring only your strongest Pokmon and try to make sure they're over level 60. Now first you must fight Lorili, her Pokmon are Dewgong, Cloyster, Slowbro, Jynx, and Lapras . Use a strong Electric type for the first 3 then use a fire type for the last 2. The next person is Bruno, his Pokmon are Onix, Hitmonchan, Hitmonlee, Onix, and Machamp. I'd suggest a water or grass pokmon. Agatha's next, her pokmon are Gengar, Golbat, Haunter, Arbok, and Gengar. I usually put them to sleep first and then attack. The last one is Lance,his Pokmon are Gyarados, Dragonair, Dragonair Aerodactyl, and Dragonite.Start out with a strong electric type for Gyarados and then use a ice type. Now for Gary ~~~~~~~~~~~~ First he'll send out a Pidgeot, then Alakazam, then Rhydon, after that it vary's a little depending on who you chose as your starting Pokmon. If you chose Squirtle he would have: Gyarados, Arcanine, and Venesaur If you chose Bulbasaur he would have: Exeggutor, Gyarados, and Charizard If you chose Charmander he would have: Arcanine, Exeggutor, and Blastoise I use my Raichu for his Pidgeot, the my Venesaur to put Alakazam to sleep, then I use Venesaur again for Rhydon, Then I use Rapidash for Exeggutor, Raichu for Gyarados, and then I use Articuno for Charizard (Charizard is part Flying which makes him open to ice attacks.) League Champ ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Now that you're league champ you can get Pokemon #150, Mewtwo go to cerulean city, and go north surf in the water downwards and then go into the cave, I won't tell you where to go it's pretty simple. The Pokemon in the Unknown Cave are: Dodrio, Venomoth, Kadabra, Rhydon, Marowak, Electrode, Chansey, Wigglytuff, Ditto, Parasect, Raichu, Arbok (Red), Sandslash (Blue).
