Get Into S.S Anne after it has left!
Pretty pointless hint, but it can apply to other blocked entrances in Pokemon blue, red, and yellow, such as getting onto the bike route without a bike. You must have surf for this to work.
What you do is position yourself right above the sailor guy blocking the entrance to the ss anne after it has sailed away. Walk one step to the left, so that you are diagonallly left of the sailor. then, take one step right and IMMEDIATELY press start. Save the game and reset.
Now, for reasons unknown the game programmers for the old Pokemon games set your character to always position downwards as default when you start the game. However, because you save immediately after stepping right, the game becomes confused.
Now after you reset, you should be facing right. If not, try again. Now, use surf, but instead of going right, where the water is, surf downwards, and you will pass straight through the sailor and into the SS Anne Dock. The SS Anne will still be there!
