Pokťmon Red/Blue Walkthrough
Submitted by Thomas
(Youíre in your bedroom) Go to the computer and access
your PC, get the potion and get downstairs. Go
outside, now go to the very north, you should see some
grass looking areas, go onto it, before you get far,
Prof. Oak will stop you and lead you to his lab. Heíll
let you choose a pokemon, choose a pokeball. I
recommend squirtle or bulbasaur, but anyone is fine.
Before you get out of the lab, Gary will challenge you
to your first match, just keep on using the first
move. If you win, you get some money, if you lose,
Gary gets the bragging rights. One more thing, your
pokemon will grow to level 6 if you win.
Now that you have a pokemon, go on to the bush in the
north and find fights, get your pokemon to level 10.
If your pokemon faint (make sure that it doesnít, run
from battles if you need to), youíll be back in your
house, talk to your mom and go back onto route 1. Make
your way through the route, talk to anybody you see,
one guy will give you a free potion, another will tell
you a "faster" way to get home.
Go directly up and right to that first building (with
a "poke" sign on it) and go inside, go up and talk to
the nurse behind the counter (yes, itís a nurse,
whistle!) sheíll offer to heal your pokemon, select
heal. Now go northeast to the pokemart (with a "mart"
sign), youíll receive Prof. Oakís Parcel. Go back to
Pallet town, picking fights as you go (get your
pokemon to level 11).
Go back into Oakís lab and talk to him, heíll give you
and Gary each a pokedex. Now go into Garyís house and
get a townís map, despite what Gary said, his sister
will still give you map.
Now get your pokemon to level 12. Go into Viridian
Now heal your pokemon. Get a potion and 6 pokeballs at
the pokemart, youíll need them later. Go back to route
Capture a pidgey and raise it to level 10, capture a
rattata and raise it to level 7 (it should have
learned quick attack). Your pokemon should be around
level 12 or above, above would be great. Go back to
Switch your pidgey as your leading pokemon (or if you
have a charmander put that into the lead). Now go
north into Viridian Forest. (Donít forget to heal your
pokemon at the Viridian poke center first)
Go to the poke center and heal your pokemon, go up and
stop when you see an old man. Go left and youíll see a
broccoli like bush. Press A and youíll find a secret
potion. Now go north to the Viridian Forest.
Viridian Forest (Pokemon catching spree)
Now with a level 10 pidgey leading, the pokemon you
started with at level 13, and a level 8 rattata (you
wonít be using this much, only to catch some pokemon)
youíre ready for the forest. Note: if you got a
charmander, put that in front. Immediately go up and
turn right into that bush of grass. Now you can find a
the 2 caterpillar pokemon (caterpie and weedle), and
most importantly, a pikachu! Pika, Pika (sorry, I just
had to do it). There're only a few pikachus in either
version, youíll just have to have patience. Use this
chance to build up your other pokemon, oh, one other
thing, use pidgey against bug type pokemon, but not
against pikachu, NEVER use a flying pokemon on an
electric one. You can use a charmander against both
bug and pikachu. Try to get your pidgey to level 12
(if you have a charmander, get that to level 15 and
keep your pidgey at level 10). Fight with a caterpie
until level 12 (itíll evolve twice), fight with a
weedle until level 10 (itíll also evolve twice).
Remember to go back to Viridian City if you need
medical help. When youíve found a pikachu (took me a
while) capture it and go back to Viridian City to heal
all your pokemon, plus build your pikachu up to a
reasonable level 10, just fight pidgeys, itíll be a
synch. Note: your beedrill should be on level 10.
Viridian Forest (getting through the forest)
At the entrance, head northwest to find a pokeball. Go
back to the entrance and go right again, follow the
path to find a bug catcher trainer, it should be no
problem if you have a level 12 butterfree and a 12
pidgey (charmander). Use the butterfree against weedle
and the pidgey (charmander) against caterpie. Go up
the grass bush, youíll be challenged by another bug
trainer. Go up and get the antidote, remember if your
monster have fainted or has really bad/low health
(what I mean by bad is situations like poisend, etc.),
go back to the Viridian City poke center. Use potions
and antidotes only if you really must. Keep on going,
follow the road as it zigzags through the forest. Keep
on going until you reach another fork in the road, you
should be facing south when you encounter it. Go right
and down to find another potion. From there make your
way to the northwest. Thereís another bug trainer in
your way but itís nothing you canít handle. Go north
and exit. Note: you should have 5 pokemons, a level 13
starting pokemon (15 if you got charmander), a level
12 pidgey (10 if you got a charmander), a level 10
pikachu, a level 12 butterfree, and a level 10
beedrill (store the beedrill in the PC).
Instead of going to Brock, go heal your pokemon and go
back to Viridian City instead, and from there, make
your way west of town.
Try and find both nidorans and a spearow, donít waste
your efforts finding a nidorn female if you canít find
one, now go north west, and then, huh? Why did we
I missed Gary here my first trip, use your pikachu
against his pidgey, use the butterfree if he chose
bulbasaur, pikachu if he chose squirtle, or any
pokemon against charmander (it has not learned ember).
Note: if you use a bulbasaur against charmander, use
leech seed and tackle, not vine whip.
The guard at the gate wonít let you through, so letís
get the badges shall we? Go back through the forest to
Heal your pokemons. Now put an bulbasaur or squirtle
(level 12 or 13) in front and head into the pewter
city gym. Youíll win very quickly with bubbles and
water gun if you have squirtle, or vine whip if you
have bulbasaur. Brock will give you the boulder badge
and TM 34, which teaches bide (I wouldnít use this,
Iíd just sell it it). Note: if you donít have a
squirtle or bulbasaur, a level 15 charmander is your
best bet, keep a butterfree with confusion with you
though, because you might need it to back up
charmander. After you finish Brock, go and buy 4 or 5
pokeballs at the pokemart. Heal your pokemons and head
northwest to the museum. Talk to everyone, youíll be
able to fix the clues together later. Go right from
the entrance to the museum and youíll find another
bush looking thing, cut it later when you get HM 01
and go inside, youíll find a scientist who will give
you Old Amber. Oh, 1 more thing, get an escape rope,
youíll need it pretty soon.
Brock has a level 12 Geodude and a level 14 Onix, a
squirtle (wartortle) or bulbasaur (ivysaur) would fare
best against these guys, if you picked a charmander at
the beginning, build it up to level 13 or above, be
sure to have a lot of potions. Youíll need a level 12
butterfree to back charmander up, I found out my self,
the hard way.
Ah, nothing like a scent of fresh air as we step
outside, its time to set out on foot again. Note:
before you go on route 3, get your pikachu to level
13. There are several trainers on route 3, nothing you
canít handle. Just follow this formula: use pidgey (or
charmander) against caterpies and grass pokemons, you
can also use them against weedles and kakunas but Iíd
let my butterfree fight against the poisen pokemon
instead, pikachu against flying pokemons or water,
butterfree against poisen pokemon and the pokemon you
chose at the beginning against the rest. Capture a
jigglypuff on the way. Build your pikachu up to level
16, practice experience on spearows and pidgeys. After
a long walk, we come to the entrance of Mt. Moon. Heal
your pokemons at the pokecenter right next to the
entrance and enter Mt. Moon. (Store jigglypuff into
Put a pikachu in the lead for zubats, if a trainer
sends out a rock type pokemon, send out wartortle or
ivysaur, if they send out a plant or bug pokemon, use
pidgey (or charmander, I wouldnít evolve charmander
until level 38). Note: if you have a charmander
instead, then capture a clefairy and teach it water
gun (TM 12). Be sure you also capture a geodude (get
it to level 16 if you chose bulbasaur at the
beginning) and a paras before you are out of there. Oh
and by the way, use the escape rope you bought to get
out of Mt. Moon if youíre in trouble.
Walk through for items
(entrance) go up and left,
youíll face your first trainer (hopefully, no wild
pokemon bothers you). After defeating him, go and get
the potion to the left, then go down, you should see
another item, itís TM 12 (water gun, you wonít be
needing this for quite a long time, unless you have
squirtle or charmander, if you have a squirtle, sell
it, if you have a charmander, either keep it for later
or use it now on clefairy). Now go east, youíll be
challenged again. Follow the trail up and right, go
through the ladder on the right, follow the road to
another ladder, as soon as you walk out of that
ladder, youíll find your first team rocket member and
a HP UP on the stairs. Go back up to the main floor
when you finish the rocket. Go south and youíll be
challenged yet again, getting fun isnít it? Go
southwest from there to find yet another potion. Go
east and youíll find some rare candy (raises one of
your pokemonís level by one) go up north to get an
escape rope. Be sure to challenge that trainer you
passed. Go up north and face yet another trainer,
switch your pidgey/butterfree/charmander into the
leading pokemon before you challenge her (Iíd go with
butterfree, youíll need a level 17 butterfree as soon
as you exit Cerulean City). Then go left and then down
into another ladder, follow the road to another and
challenge the team rocket member, remember to swap
your pokemons back before the challenge. Get TM 01
(mega punch) and go back to the main floor. Face
another trainer to the south of you. To the left is
another one guarding a ladder. Be sure to get the moon
stone on the top left corner before going down the
ladder. When youíve entered the ladder, follow the
trail to another rocket, beware of this one, I had a
pretty hard time with him. After you beat the rocket,
go back up the OTHER side and follow the road, youíll
find some clefairies here, challenge another rocket
member and then a greedy little man. Choose a fossil,
doesnít matter which fossil you get, they are both
good. From there, head west. Go down through the
ladder and another one and youíre home free, thank
After that long, (cough, cough) long walk, weíre
heading towards Cerulean City. Be sure to pick up TM
04 (whirlwind) and do something with it, I think itís
useless, so I sold it. Capture a sandshrew or an
ekans, depending on your version. Your pikachu should
be at level 22 (donít fight ground type pokemon like
sandshrews with pikachu). Jump over the hedge on the
east and head towards Cerulean City.
Heal your pokemon and buy some more pokeballs, deposit
all the TMs and escape ropes you didnít use and use
your rare candy and HP UP on a pokemon. Deposit your
rattata too, if you havenít already. Also store the
moonstone into your PC too. Head for the Gym, right
next to the pokecenter. If you have a level 22
pikachu, itíll be a very short fight, just use thunder
Cerulean City Gym
You can tell that these guys love water, theyíve
transferred the gym into a pool!!! Youíll face 2
lieutenants before you meet Misty.
Misty has a level 18 staryu and a level 21 starmie,
bulbsaur or pikachu, or any other plant or electric
type pokemon would do. Do not use fire, what ever you
do. The cascade badge and TM 11 are your rewards for
After defeating Misty, the road to the north will open
up, but first visit the bike shop on the southwest
corner. They sell bikes for the cheap price of
$1,000,000 dollars? 5,000 times the price of my bike,
but of course, nothing is cheap here, a pokeball, a
ball costs $200.
The Nugget Bridge
Team Rocket has 6 members guarding route 24, but
before you can do much, youíll have to face Gary.
His arsenal includes a pidgeotto (use pikachu), an
abra (any pokemon would do, abra doesnít have any
moves right now), a rattata (use the highest level
pokemon youíve got) and the pokemon he had at the
beginning (if he chose a bulbasaur,
pigeotto/butterfree would do, if he chose charmander,
a level 18 geodude or any water pokemon would do, if
he chose a squirtle, a pikachu would do)
The Nugget Bridge
Defeat all 6 members of the team rocket to receive a
nugget, sell it off to get $5,000, sweet!
Route 24 & 25
Now go left, youíll be challenged by a trainer. Go
north and find TM 45 (thunderwave, your pikachu should
already have learned this, sell it). Then go south,
whatever you do, donít go through the trainers to the
east, instead, try to catch a(n) bellsprout/oddish and
an abra to your south. Try to get 2 abras if you can
(one for trading and one for yourself). Put a
butterfree in front, and use sleep powder against
abra, use it again everytime he wakes up. Now put the
abra in front, go challenge the first trainer, then
immediately switch out another pokemon. Donít use
abra. That way, both abra and the pokemon that fought
can gain points, and besides, abra canít kill any
pokemon, keep on doing this until you abra reaches
level 16. After you pass the trainers, youíll see a
house nearby, go in it. Note: your starting pokemon
should be approaching level 23 or 24, your pigeotto
should be approaching level 22 (keep it at 18 if you
have a charmander, deposit the bird too), your
butterfree should be at level 17 or above, and your
pikachu should be approaching level 24.
When you go into the house, youíll see "Bill". Talk to
him and help him transform back to a human. Now after
heís normal, go and talk to him again, heíll give you
the S.S. Anne ticket. Quickly go back to Cerulean
Go to the pokecenter and heal your pokemon. Make sure
you have at least 2 awakenings and 2 pokeballs. Exit
the pokecenter and go to the house on the northeast
corner, go out to the backyard and defeat the team
rocket. Go heal your pokemon and come back here again.
This time, go right, all the way right, then south,
youíll eventually find a road that looks like itís for
luxury people, this is route 5.
Be sure to drop off a weak pokemon at the daycare. To
do this, donít enter route 5, instead, go to those
hedges to the left and go down, youíll jump over the
hedges and finally reach a house. Jump down over the
hedge when youíve put a pokemon with the daycare, if
you chose a charmander at the beginning, you have 2
choices, wait and get a Lapras at Saffron City, or put
a magikarp (youíll get it at Vermillion City, put it
here before you go on S.S. Anne) there right now and
wait for it to get to level 19, then train it into a
Gyrados. Now go right into the underground path.
Come out the other side of the underground path and
capture a meowth/mankey, fight the six trainers and
walk into the Vermilion City.
Buy some super potions and some pokeballs, you should
also have 2 or 3 awakenings. Go heal your pokemons and
explore the whole town, going into each house. One guy
will give you an old fishing rod, another will trade
you a Farfetchíd for a spearow (donít worry about
catching another spearow), and another will give you a
bike voucher, which you can take to the bike shop in
Cerulean City to trade for a bike. Return to Vermilion
City after you get the bike, make your way east of
town and down the tiled bridge.
Too bad they donít allow any cycling around here.
Explore every room, go the east way first (go down the
stairs on the southeast side of the ship when you
first enter). I missed the kitchen, which is on the
very southwest side of the ship when you first come
in, visit that second. Go back to Vermilion City and
heal your pokemon every time your pokemon are almost
dead, fight every fight you can, and go to the captain
last. You should also visit the deck to gain
experience for your pokemon. To do this, go left at
the entrance, (visit the stairs on the right first and
the kitchen second) then go down the stairs you found.
Go south to the next stairs, DONíT go right yet. When
you have reached these stairs, keep on going west. To
visit the captain, go left when you first come in,
then down but DONíT go into the stairs, go right and
then go up, but before you can go into the captainís
lounge, youíll hear an annoying voice.
He leads off with a pidgeotto (pikachu), kadabra
(butterfree), gyrados (pikachu), raticate (highest
level pokemon), and the evolved version of the pokemon
he started with (follow the formula on the first Vs.
Gary section, pidgeotto/butterfree vs. ivysaur, etc.)
Go up to the captain and press A, youíll rub his back
and heíll give you HM 01, teach it to ivysaur or
Bye, Bye S.S. Anne
Get out of the ship and watch the cruise ship leave.
Then head for diglettís cave to the right of the
entrance of S.S. Anne.
Capture a level 22 diglett, if you canít find a level
22 one, find a level 20 diglett. Go out on the other
side of Diglettís Cave, youíll find yourself on the
right side of route 2, which you couldnít get to
before, go south and go into that house, trade an abra
if you have one. Get out of the house and keep on
heading south, go into the next house and talk to a
scientist like person and get HM 05, keep it for a
voltorb youíll get later on. Donít forget to get Old
Amber at Pewter City. Go back to Vermilion City, use
Head east of town.
Defeat the trainers and head east, get the item finder
and go back to Vermillion City.
Now that you have cut, cut the bush on the south and
go into the gym, placing your diglett at the very
Vermilion City Gym
First talk to the guy on the right when you enter,
heíll tell you that you need to solve a code to reach
the lieutenant, defeat the 3 trainers in the gym and
talk to them, theyíll tell you how to solve the code,
Iím not even going to spoil this for you.
When youíve solved the code, challenge the lieutenant.
He has a level 18 pikachu, a level 21 voltorb, and a
level 24 raichu. Put a diglett (which should be
approaching level 26) in front and keep on using dig,
youíll win in no time, teach TM 24 to pikachu (Level
31) and your duglett will have almost evolved into
dugtrio, use it against poisen, electric, fire, and
rock typed pokemon. Return to Cerulean City. Surge
will give you the thunderbadge and TM 24
Thereís a bush on route 25, cut it and get TM 19
inside it, go to the sea cottage now and talk to Bill,
do what he says, go on the PC.
Go back to Cerulean City, cut that bush to the very
south of the city, go northeast and youíll see a short
path leading to a bush, cut that and seek out 10
trainers on the way, the 10th is at the very end, by
the rock tunnel entrance. Be sure to capture a voltorb
on the way, teach it Flash, and store the HMs into the
This one is not as confusing as Mt. Moon, but the
thing is, there is a ton of trainers and no items :(
If you have the flash ability, youíll get through very
easily (since you can see). Put a grass or water type
pokemon in front, again, use bellsprout/oddish/gyrados
if you chose charmander, be sure to capture a machop
and an onix.
After exiting the rock tunnel, youíll need to defeat a
few more trainers before you can reach lavender town.
Thereís a bush on the very north east of the route, go
to it and press A to find a secret ether, which
replenishes your pokemonís abilities PP.
Go to the pokecenter and pokemart and go west (donít
visit any other place except for the name rater just
There are several trainers here, capture a
vupix/growlithe and store it in the PC. Go into the
little house at the end and go through the underground
Go northwest to reach Celadon City, you might also
consider gaining some experience in the field of grass
Before you go to the poke center, go up and then left.
When you see an opening go up and left and down, keep
on going on to the stairs and go into that little lab
house thingie to get a very rare pokemon called eevee,
evolve it into a Flareon if you have not chosen a
charmander. Now visit the pokecenter, do not visit the
gym until you have a level 31 Flareon/29 butterfree.
Celadon City Gym
Thereís a peeping tom outside of it, itís a wonder
why, the gym is full of girls, after you get through
10 or so, you face Erika.
Erikas got 3 grass type pokemon, a level 29
Victreebell, a level 24 Tangela, and a level 29
Vileplum (unless you take out vileplum with the first
it, youíll be in for quite a while). Flareon or
Charizard will wipe them out faster than you can say,
good bye. Defeat her and to get the rainbow badge and
TM 21 (Mega Drain).
Celadon City Department Store
Go into the elevator and go to the top floor, then go
up the stairs to reach the roof, thereís a vending
machine nearby, get 2 waters, a lemonade, and a soda
pop, give 1 of each type of drink to the little girl,
sheíll give you TM 13, TM 48, and TM 49. Now buy some
great balls, some revives and some paralyze heal. Also
buy a pokedoll, a thunder stone, a firestone (if you
have a vulpix Ė blue version or eevee Ė red version,
if you have charmander donít worry about it), and a
leafstone (if you have weepinbell or gloom, donít
worry about this if you have a venusaur instead).
Note: get 2 thunderstones if you are crazy about a
Jolteon, like my friend Robert is.
Talk to the guy at the very top. After you defeat him,
go to the poster and press A. A secret door to the
right of you will open up. Go in.
Surviving Team Rocketís Secret basement
As soon as you get in, seek out the 2 trainers around
you, be sure to get the escape rope to the southwest
of where you started from, then return to where you
were at the beginning and go down the stairs on the
right side. Go west and youíll be challenged. Now go
upwards and down the stairs, go south to get the TM
10. Make your way through the maze of the "arrows". Go
down the ladder at the very end. Now, that youíre at
the 4th basement, itís time for the lift key, go
northwest and defeat the rocket, talk to him after,
youíll get the lift key, make your way back to the
second basement, get the 4 items while breaking
through the second maze, go up the ladder and get the
hyper potion at the northwest corner, go back down the
stairs and then go into the elevator, go to floor B4,
after the elevator stops, go th the soutwest and get
the iron, now defeat the 2 trainers that you passed
and talk to the black suited man holding the silph
Giovanni has 2 ground type pokemon, including a
ryhornand an onix, he also has a kangaskhan, a team of
water/grass and fighting pokemon will fit perfectly,
use the water/grass pokemon against the ground
pokemon, and the fighting pokemon against the
Go east to 7, be sure you have the bottle of water
with you, go into the guard house leading to Saffron
City, After you get into Saffron City, go north to the
Fighting Dojo Gym, (the one to the left), put a
Kadabra in front, choose a fighting pokemon after you
beat everyone, I chose Hitmonchan after experimenting
with both. Head east to Lavender Town.
Go into that big tower.
Before you can do much, the annoying voice strikes
He includes a Kadabra, the pokemon he started with,
Pidgeotto, a water/fire/grass pokemon, and another
water/grass/fire pokemon, depending on what he chose
at the beginning. The only pokemon you should have
problems with is the Kadabra.
Make you way to the vert top of the tower, put a
Kadabra at the top to fight the ghosts, itíll be very
effective because not only is it fighting a ghost,
itís also fighting a poisen pokemon. Get the 7 items
along the way. At the sixth floor, youíll meet a
Marowak, you canít capture this ground type pokemon,
so youíll have to make it faint, use a water or grass
pokemon to fight against it, use the same types to
fight against cubones, youíll face 3 rockets at the
seventh floor, defeat them and rescure old mr. Fuji,
heíll give you a pokeflute.
Go to the center of the city and into the big building
Use the elevator to get to the 5th floor, go to the
very south and get the card key, if your pokemon need
experience, seek every rocket/scientist/juggler there
are in the building, but if you want to end this
quickly, then go to the 3rd floor and go southwest,
open the gate with the card key, go in and step on to
the tile, and hey! Havenít you learned to leave me
Heís got a pidgeot, alakazam, and some other pokemon
in between levels 35-39, backed up by a level 40
Saving the Day
Talk to the guy nearby to receive a Lapras, step on
the tile at the bottom, defeat the rocket in your way,
if you need mediacal help, go to the southwest corner
on the 9th floor. Anyway, as soon as you open the door
with the card key, out comes Giovanni.
Heís got 4 pokemon this time, including a Nidorino,
Rhyhorn, Kangaskhan, Nidoqueen, use your Kadabra
against the poisen pokemon, a water or grass pokemon
against Rhyhorn, and a fighting pokemon against the
The Master Ball
Talk to the president, heíll give you the master ball,
thereís only 1 like it in the game, like they say,
save it for a very special pokemon.
At the southeast corner of the city, heíll give you TM
29, which teaches psychic.
To the very northwest of the city, at the second
story, be sure you have a pokedoll with you, if you
do, copycat will give you TM 31, which teaches mimic.
Saffron City Gym
Step on the first warp tile and keep on stepping on
the tile that Ďs above or below you to get to the next
room, sooner or later youíll get to a large room with
a girl in it, this is Sabrina.
Sabrina has a level 38 Kadabra, a level 37 Mr. Mime, a
level 38 Venomoth, and a level 43 Alakazam. I had a
hard time with Sabrina using Blastoise, so I switched
to Dugtrio and kept on using earthquake, be sure to
have a lot of potions, if you have a Charizard, get it
to level 45 and keep on using slash, itíll finish them
with 2 or 3 strikes each (might be more with Kadabra
or Alakazam because of their move recover), if you
have Venasaur, keep on using razor leaf, except on
Venomoth, on which you should use Flareon instead.
When youíve beaten Sabrina, youíll get the soul badge
and TM 46, which teaches Psywave.
After getting your 5th badge, head back to Lavender
Town, then head south, be sure to pick up the super
rod on route 12, youíll see some grass fields, you can
capture pidgeottos, oddishs (red version), glooms (red
version), bellsprouts (blue), weepinbells (blue),
venonats, and dittos. Donít forget to get TM 20 and
iron, also a little gift from Oakís aid. There are
lots of bikers (poisen pokemon), and bird catchers
(the name say it) around here too, easy if you have a
well trained pikachu and a well trained
kadabra/dugtrio. Oh, and by the way, if you try to
capture the Snorlax, save before you do it.
The city is really a maze itself, to reach the
pokecenter and the gym, youíll have to head to the
west of the city, not out of it, and follow the little
path leading south, visit the gym right after the
Fushia City Gym
If you look closely at the screen, youíll see tiny
dotted lines. This is the invisible wall, go around it
and finally reach koga. There will be a few trainers,
I had problems with Hypno, took about 60 HP from me
with 2 headbutts. Funny that this gym calls themselves
ninja trainers, they train psychic and poisen Pokťmon,
maybe they should try out for Sabrinaís gym instead.
Koga is at the very middle of the gym, he will send
out two level 37 Coffing, a level 39 Muk, and a level
43 Weezing. A Kadabra/Alakazam or a Dugtrio will make
this a pretty short fight. Beat him, the soul badge
and TM 06 (toxic) is yours.
Itís at the very north of the city, there will be at
least 15 spieces of different pokemon including both
Nidorins, Nidorino, Nidorina, Kangaskan, Chansey,
Rhyhorn, Exeggcute, Venonat, Venomoth, Paras,
Parasect, Scyther (red), Pinsir (Blue), Tauros, and
Doduo. Youíll also find the wardenís gold teeth and HM
03, which teaches surf. Give warden his gold teeth and
heíll award you with HM 04 which teaches strenghth, so
you you can move, say, that boulder in the wardenís
house? Get some ultra balls at the pokemart too.
Capture a Raticate and a Fearow on the way, before you
go to Cycing Road, head west of Fushia City, now step
south, youíll find a Lickitung. If you need a "break"
with your fingers and your bike, press B to stop. If
you have already gotten rid of or have captured the
snorlax in the way, then cut the bush blocking the way
north. Now keep on going west, youíll see a little
house with a girl inside, talk to her and heíll give
you HM 02, which teaches fly (go back to any city
youíve visited already). Head towards Cerulean City
Be sure to have a pokemon with surf and a pokemon who
has fly with you, head east towards Rock Tunnel.
Before Rock Tunnel, head towards the edge of the river
to the north and dive into the water using surf, keep
on paddling towards the south until you reach a big
building, this is the power plant.
The Power Plant
Put a dugtrio in front. Be sure to get a magnemite and
a magneton if you can, also, try to get an electabuzz
if you have the red version. Make your way through,
getting the rare candy, carbos, HP UP, and TM 33/TM
25, be careful, lots of the items on the floor are
actually level 40 voltorbs. At the near end of the
power plant youíll come across a bird looking
Save before you meet this guy, you should not have any
problems with Zapdos, just get his energy down and
throw ultra balls at it, it took me 2 tries to get
him, I think he is the easiest out of the 3 legendary
birds. Exit and fly back to Fushia City.
Sea Route 19
Head south of Fushia City. There are lots of trainers
here, but no problems for you. Keep on heading south
west until you reach an island with 2 cave entrances,
go into the one that you can.
As you are descending through the levels, push the
boulders into the pit, the idea is to block the river
below so that you donít get washed away. At the 3rd
level, push 2 boulders down to the 4th level, jump in
after them. Youíll land in the water, head north until
you see Articuno, another bird.
I had problems with this guy, I got itís health all
the way down, but I always miss with my ultra ball,
took me about 10 ultra balls before I caught him.
Sea Route 20
After you get out of the islands, head west and youíll
reach Cinnibar Island. The gym is locked, wonder if
thereís a key..
Go to the pokecenter (located in the south) and the
pokemart (right beside the pokecenter). Withdraw the
fossil and Old Amber, give it to the Scientist in the
3rd door at the Pokemon Lab (southwest corner of the
island). Now head to Pokemon Mansion (northwest
Flip on switches inside statues as you make your way
up. At he 3rd floor, flip on the switch at the statue
and head south, jump off the ledge in the middle.
Defeat a nearby trainer and head northeast, the secret
key, however, is at the western section, so youíll
have to make your west, when youíve gotten the secret
key, dig out of there. Go to the pokemon gym.
Cinnibar City Gym
Youíll have to challenge trainers to open doors, after
a while, youíll see old man Blaine.
Blaineís pokemon are pretty hot stuff, but you can
take care of them with a water or rock pokemon. He has
a level 42 Growlithe, a level 47 Arcaine, a level 40
Ponyta, and a level 42 Rapidash. After you defeat him,
youíll be awarded with the volcano badge and TM 38,
which teaches fire blast.
Sea Route 21
Head north of Cinnibar Island and use surf, go all the
way back to Viridian City, put a water or grass
pokemon in front and head into the gym, you know, the
one that you couldnít go into before.
Viridian City Gym
This is just like the game corner, with all the arrow
pointing things, go on the one to the north, and make
your way to the 8th trainer, and itís...
Giovanni!!! Giovanni??? The leader of Team Rocket?
Whoíd thought, a team of grass and water pokemon, will
make this a short fight. Talk to Giovanni after you
beat he and receive the earth badge and TM 27
(Fissure), heíll disband Team Rocket and dedicate his
studies to the world of pokemon
Weíve been on this route before, and um, oh no, not
You think heíd learned his lesson already, but
noooooo, he starts off with a Pidgeot, then an
Alakazam, and a Rhydon after that, he finishes it off
with the pokemon he started out with.
If you have all 8 badges, youíll get to an entrance at
the end, this is victory road.
Youíll find Moltres, among machokes and marowaks, in
the range of Lv40-Lv50. Push boulders onto the little
round things to open up passages. To reach moltres,
youíll have to get to the third floor first, then you
will have to go down through the ladder at the
northwestern corner of the 3rd floor. To get out,
youíll first have to move a boulder onto the switch at
the southern part of the second floor, then go up the
stairs on the right and keep on going right.
This guy is as easy as Zapdos, get his energy down to
a minimum and throw ultra balls at it.
This is the last place to heal your pokemon and to
stock up on items. Save before you enter the door to
the elite 4. There is no going back after you enter.
The Elite 4
With the exception of Jynx, use thunderbolt with
Raichu, if your Raichu is just at level 50, use
thunder. Use a fire pokemon against Jynx.
Arguably the easiest of the elite 4, he has 2 onixes
and 3 other fighting pokemon. Use a flying or psychic
pokemon against the fighting pokemon and water or
grass against the onixes.
They say that she wields ghost pokemon, I say she
wields poisen pokemon, 1 or 2 psychic attacks will
send them to the afterlife.
If you had raised Articuno a few levels, itís ice beam
will make losers of Lanceís Dragons, use a Raichu
against Gyrados and Aerodactyl.
Well we find out that someone has reached the elite 4
before us, and it is none other thanÖÖ
Gary!!! He starts off with a pidgeot (raichu), then
alakazam (use fissure with dugtrio), then rhydon
(water or grass pokemon). Now, the last 3 pokemon
veries, if he chose a bulbasaur at the beginning,
heíll have gyrados (raichu), arcanine (water pokemon),
and venusaur (fire pokemon). If he started off with a
squirtle, heíll have an arcanine (water pokemon),
exeggutor (fire pokemon), and blastoise (raichu). If
he started off with charmander, heíll have an
exeggutor (fire pokemon), gyrados (raichu), and
charizard (water pokemon)
Congratulations, youíve beaten Gary!!! You are now the
undisputed Pokemon Master!!! Professor Oak inducts you
and your pokemon into the hall of fame!!!
The Unknown Dungeon
Head towards route 24 (north of Cerulean City), jump
into the water to the south and start swimming until
you reach the entrance, be sure to have the master
ball with you, there are many Pokemon in here. At the
basement, you will meet Mewtwo, throw the master ball
at it. Good luck!!!
