Pokémon Walkthroughs Part 1 Hello, Welcome to my first Pokémon Walkthrough. Are you ready to beat the game and get all the Pokémon? I know I am! Before I start, I would like to say that I have worked on this for ages and I do not want anyone wrecking it. Anything to ask just e-mail me at email@example.com Unfortunately, I have to make 7 Walkthroughs. 2 Parts for this, 4 Parts for Gold and Silver (Kanto 2 Parts, Johto 2 Parts) and TMs, Moves and Items Pokémon Walkthrough for Blue/Red Part 1 I would like to tell you some stuff as well. Key: C =Common R =Rare - =Doesn\'t Appear in that game Badges You win badges by beating the Gym Leaders. Here is a list of badges: Brock: Pewter City: Boulder Badge: The power of all Pokémon increases a little. It lets you use FLASH any time. Misty: Cerulean City: Cascade Badge: Pokémon up to LV30 obey you. About 10 Levels higher and you won\'t be able to control them until you get Erika\'s Badge. It also lets you use CUT at any time. Lt. Surge: Vermilion City: Thunder Badge: The speed of all Pokémon increases a little. It lets you use FLY anytime. Erika: Celadon City: Rainbow Badge: Pokémon up to LV50 obey. NOTE: These are just the Badges for the first half This is the start of the walkthrough guide, here you will see how to go through everything in the game and there will be helpful hints on how to win the game. Pallet Town This tiny little town is where you were born and raised. Now you\'re leaving to become a Pokémon Master. Every one feels sad but you have to leave the nest some time. Your goal here is to find Prof. Oak and earn your first Pokémon. A little of home-cooked goodness Inside your house you\'ll find the luxuries that will remind you of being \"home\". Upstairs is your SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Or Super Nintendo) and computer, where you\'ll find a Potion tucked away for the occasion (so I suggest get it out). Downstairs in the living room, you\'ll find your Mother, who\'s always willing to provide comfort and a healing dose of chicken soup when you need it. If you are in town, pay her a visit and she\'ll heal your wounds for free. Prof. Oak? Wanna jump start the game? Then just try leaving Pallet Town it will make Prof. Oak come in an instant! The Lab Here in Prof. Oak\'s lab, you\'ll receive two different things at two different times. First, you\'ll get your choice to choose between three different Pokémon. Hmmm... Will you take the flowery Bulbasaur, the Water-squirting Squirtle, or the fiery Charmander? Whichever you choose, be prepared to defend yourself against your Rival from next door. That Bully JUST won\'t leave you alone. Later on, once you\'ve delivered a certain parcel to Prof. Oak, you\'ll get your Pokédex and be able to buy Poké Balls and start your collection of Pokémon! Happy hunting. Why should you visit your Rival\'s Home? I don\'t know, maybe his Sister might have a crush on you or something. Pay her a visit and she will give you a copy of the town map for FREE! This will help you to get from town to town. Pallet Town Things to do Choose a Pokémon Deliver Prof. Oaks Parcel and get a Pokédex Pick up the Town Map Places to go Home Rival\'s Home Prof. Oaks lab Things to get Potion x1 Town Map Pokédex Any Pokémon? Bulbasaur Charmander Squirtle And fish for Poliwag and Goldeen once you get a Rod Route 1 The Dangers of long grass Wherever you see these patches of long grass, you\'ll see Wild Pokémon. It never fails and, with the exception of dungeons and water (and the Pokémon tower and the Power Plant), you won\'t find Pokémon anywhere else! So... If your Pokémon is low on Hit Points (HP) or you don\'t want to fight in any more random Pokémon battles stay out of the grass. The Rewards of being friendly Whenever you encounter a person in towns/cities or on the road go up and talk to them. They usually have advice and sometimes items to give out.So go up and talk to them, but be carful one of the people could be a trainer who wants to fight. Tip: This is the first opportunity you\'ll have to fight a Pokémon so don\'t waste it or you won\'t survive other battles. Route 1 Things to get Potion x1 Any Pokémon? Red Blue Pidgey C C Rattata C C Viridian City At first, you won\'t find much to do here since the Gym is closed for a while. But you will get to visit your first Pokémon Center and Poké Mart. It\'s a shame they are out of Potions. My Pokémon needs Help! Whenever you enter a new city, one of the first places you\'ll want to find is the Pokémon Center. Here you can heal your hurt Pokémon for free. Just give your Pokémon to the Nurse and she\'ll heal them to \"Fighting Fit\" form. You can also use the little computer in the back of the center. You can use the computer to log on and use Pokémon Trainer\'s tools. You can log on to Someone\'s P.C. to get and Deposit your Pokémon (It changes from Someone\'s P.C to Bill\'s P.C when you talk to him in Cerulean City), You can get Prof. Oak to rate your Pokédex, and you can use your P.C so you can Withdraw and Deposit your items. Note: You can only have up to six Pokémon with you, all the rest get sent to Bill\'s P.C.and once it says you can\'t catch anymore Pokémon change the box,but remember what box the Pokémon are in. Delivery for Prof. Oak Here at the Viridian City Poké Mart, you\'ll find the shelves of bvasic items, but you\'ll find it\'s a Post office as well, well not really but the delivery boy was meant to deliver something to Prof. Oak that he ordered from the Mart but the delivery boy is out sick. So deliver it to Prof. Oak and the Clerk might let you buy stuff. Merchandise Poké Ball 200P Antidote 100P Paralyze Heal 250P Burn Heal 250P Potions Sold Out! Pokémon hunting on route 22 Once you can buy Poké Balls, I suggest you go hunting on route 22. Here you can find wild Nidoran (M), Nidoran (F), Pidgey, Rattata, and Spearow. But don\'t go too far Your Rival\'s lurking around, and I hope you have trained your Pokémon to LV9, because he has a LV9 Pidgey and the Pokémon he started with at LV8. The Gym is Closed?! It is Closed until you beat Blaine on Cinnabar Gym (and of cause the other six Gym Leaders before him). So don\'t bother trying to get in right now. Note: Before going against a Gym Leader they have trainers to try beat the challenger. You can get past some by not letting them see and some you can\'t get past. So just attack them anyway. And another thing you should do is make them grow to higher levels but don\'t make them grow too high. If they do they won\'t obey you. Here are the Badges you must get to make sure your Pokémon will obey you; Cascade Badge: LV30 Rainbow Badge: LV50 Marsh Badge: LV70 Earth Badge: All Pokémon obey you. Gym Leader Lowdown #8: Giovanni of the Viridian Gym This is the last Gym if you haven\'t beat the other Seven Gyms and don\'t want to spoil the fight, beat them and remember to come back here later! Giovanni is the leader of Team Rocket, and boy is he mad at you for the other two times! He has Junior trainers around the whole place. His Gym consists mainly of Fighting, Poison, Rock, and Ground type Pokémon. So I suggest you should have; Ice, Water, and Grass types. If you defeat him you will get TM27 (Fissure) and ALL Pokémon you get will Obey You. Giovani\'s Pokémon Line up Rhyhorn LV45 Dugtrio LV42 Nidoqueen LV44 Nidoking LV45 Rhydon LV50 Viridian City Things to do Pick up Oak\'s Parcel at the Poké Mart Defeat Giovanni in the Gym (Much Later in the game of cause) Places to go Pokémon Center Poké Mart Viridian City Gym Things to get Oak\'s Parcel Earth Badge TM27 (Fissure) x1 Any Pokémon? Fish for Poliwag and Goldeen once you have a Rod Route 2 There\'s not much to do here... Except catch Pokémon and Cut trees once one of your Pokémon learns HM01 (Cut). Entrance to the Viridian Forest The entrance to the maze called the Virridian Forest in the building are two people who will give you iformation about the Viridian Forest. Before you go make sure you\'ve stocked up on Poké Balls and Antidotes and it would be a good idea to go to the Pokémon Center in Viridian City before you go in to the forest. Diglett\'s cave Diglett\'s cave is very good to get from Vermilion City to Pewter City or the reverse. It will take place until you get HM02 (Fly). Inside you can get LV15 through LV24 Diglett and only LV29 Dugtrio. So if you want to get from Vermilion City to Pewter City (or the Reverse) without using Fly then take the cave and you\'ll be there before you know it! Trader Alert The person in a house wants to trade a Mimer Mr. Mime for a Telportater Abra! If you don\'t have an Abra make a note to come back there when you do. An Illuminating Visit Rumours have been said about the rare HM05 (Flash) in that house and Prof. Oak\'s Aide is there. And if you have caught 10 Pokémon he will give you HM05 (Flash). Note: There are five HMs in the world (Except for Gold and Silver Versions because there are seven of them in those version). They are reusable. Route 2 Things to do Trade an Abra for Mr. Mime Get HM05 (Flash) Things to get HM05 (Flash) Hp Up x1 Moon Stone x1 Any Pokémon? Red Blue Pidge C C Rattata C C Weedle Rare ----------- Caterpie ----------- Rare Viridian Forest Viridian forest is where you find your first band of trainers that will haunt you for the rest of the game... Oh yeah, be careful of the bug Pokémon and be sure to look out for items. Trainers talk You have to beat three trainers but you can only sneak past two if you don\'t want to battle. They all have a Kakuna, a Weedle, and a Caterpie all between levels six and nine, and there are wild Metapod, Kakuna, Weedle and Caterpie too. Note: Calling all Pikachu fans for the first time in the game you can catch very own Pikachu at LV3! WOW! Viridian Forest Things to get Poké Ball x1 Antidote x1 Potion x1 Any Pokémon? Red Blue Weedle C R Kakuna C R Caterpie R C Metapod R C Pikachu R R Pewter City Defeating Brock is the first step of your Goal to become a Pokémon master. And be sure to visit the museum because they have facts about the ancient Pokémon. Visit the Poké Mart Before facing Brock or heading down to Route 3 to explore Mt. Moon, Be sure to buy some Potions at the Poké Mart first. Merchandise Poké Ball 200P Potion 300P Escape Rope 550P Antidote 100P Burn Heal 250P Awakening 200P Parlyz Heal 200P Fight at the Gym! Are you ready for your first battle with a Gym Leader? And from the looks of that pillar your Rival has been and gone! BURN! Gym Leader Lowdown #1 Brock of the Pewter Gym Your up to your first Gym challenge let\'s hope Bulbasaur knows Vine Whip and Leech Seed, Squirtle has been trained to learn Bubble and Water Gun, or the Charmander has grown to lV13 (Ember is your best attack there). You\'ve Battled against small weak Pokémon like Rattata and Pidgey, but are you ready to go against big strong Rock Pokémon like Geodude and Onix? If you win Brock will give you TM34 (Bide) and the Boulder Badge which boosts your Pokémon\'s attack strength and let\'s you use Flash at all times! Note: The trainers before the Gym Leaders are a warm up for the big battle against the Gym Leader so study their Pokémon type and attacks. Brocks Lineup Geodude LV12 Onix LV14 The Pewter Museam of Science This month\'s exibit is about extinct Pokémon and judging by their skeletons they were fierce, so go ahead and pay 50P it\'s worth it! I wonder what they are doing in there? Once you learn cut you can get in that building next to the museum and, talk to one of the guys in there and he will give you the Old Amber to take to Cinnabar Island research center and it will turn out to be an Aerodactyl! Pewter City Things to do Defeat Brock at the Gym Get the Old Amber from the Scientists Places to go Pokémon Center Poké Mart Pewter Gym Pewter Museum of Science Museum Research Facillity Things to get Boulder Badge TM34 x1 Old Amber Any Pokémon? None Route 3 After the hard battle with Brock, you can just relax with a few bouts with some easy trainers until you get to Mt. Moon, because your butt might get kicked! You Want to Sell me What?! A man in the Pokémon center wants to sell you a Magikarp for 500P! Don\'t bother unless you want to, but I would just wait until you get to Vermilion City and then you can fish for one for free! Note: Before you go into Mt. Moon search the Grass for a Jigglypuff these are pretty rare and once you use a Moon Stone on it, it will evolve in to a Wigglytuff! Route 3 Things to get None Any Pokémon? Red Blue Pidgey C C Spearow C C Jigglypuff R R Mt. Moon Team Rocket have taken over Mt. Moon searching for Fossils and it is up to you to stop them, and on your way search for the rare Clefairy. Trainers Talk Much like Route 3, the first floor is filled with Youngsters, Bug Catchers, and Lasses. Their Pokémon are on levels 10 and 11. Look out for new Pokémon including a level 14 Clefairy, an Oddish and Bellsprout duo, and a Super Nerd\'s Magnemite and Voltorb. Expect to battle seven of them before the floor is cleared. And please make good use of the Pokémon Center outside. Floor B2 is filled by the bad dudes you\'ve seen on T.V... Team Rocket! These guys are known for there evil of mistreating Pokémon. And be careful, because they have Poison, Rock, and Normal Pokémon. But at least there are only five of them on this floor. Decisions, which one is right? When you go to floor B2 and knock out all the Rockets there will be a decision between the Helix Fossil and the Dome Fossil. Which one will it be? The Helix Fossil carries the DNA of an Omanyte and the Dome ossil carries the DNA of a Kabuto. It is your decision, not mine. Mt. Moon Things to Get Potion x1 TM12 (Water Gun) x1 Potion x1 Rare Candy x1 Escape Rope x1 Moon Stone x1 HP Up x1 TM01 (Mega Punch) x1 Dome Fossil or Helix Fossil Any Pokémon? Red Blue Zubat C C Geodude R R Paras R R Clefairy R R Route 4 Man you would love this place. It\'s basicly a training ground. Route 4 Things to Get TM04 (Whirlwind) x1 Any Pokémon? Red Blue Rattata C C Spearow R R Ekans R - Sandshrew - R Cerulean City Finally! You\'re at Cerulean City. I reckon you should check out Nugget Bridge, but watch out for your Rival. Trader Alert! The question isn\'t; how did he get it? Or; Is he an idiot? But it is; What does he want for it? In one of the houses a Trainer wants to trade a rare Jynx for a Poliwhirl and my advice is... Do it! What a Bike, but look at the tag! Have you ever spent 100 bucks on a bike? Well look at the tag on this one... 1,000,000P!!! What a rip off! Maybe the President of the Pokémon Fan Club in Vermilion City has something... Anyone Up for a spot of Shopping? Heard about Repel before? Well apparantly it keeps Pokémon away, but it only lasts for about 50 steps. Here\'s a list of wares you can get. Merchandise Poké Ball 200P Potion 300P Repel 350P Antidote 100P Burn Heal 250P Awakening 200P Parlyz Heal 200P Is that the Cerulean Gym or the pool? At first, you would think the Gym was flooded or it was the pool. But there are trainers here so it must be the gym. The Swimmer in the water will battle you with a Horsea and a Shellder. After that you will fight a Junior Trainer that will attack you with a level 19 Goldeen. Gym Leader Lowdown #2 Misty of the Cerulean City Gym She\'s a cute girl always in her bathing suit. She is Misty and she means buisness. Now to beat her (If you have a Charmander) you will need a Pikachu that you have hopefully caught in the Viridian Forest or someone to trade you an Electric Pokémon at least at level 20. Squirtle/Wartortle will do good because they are strong especially if you taught it Mega Punch in Mt. Moon and not to mention they are water Pokémon. Bulbasaur/Ivysaur would stand a chance and beat them if they know Vine Whip or Leech Seed, even a Paras will do. Charmander/Charmeleon at LVs 20-25 won\'t stand much of a chance if you haven\'t got a Pokémon team with Electric or Grass moves or you haven\'t trained hard enough. If you win, Misty will give you a Cascade Badge and her favourite TM. TM11 (Bubblebeam) and as an extra bonus you can use HM01 (Cut) outside of battle. Misty\'s Line Up Staryu LV18 Starmie LV21 What has a Rocket been doing here? It seems that a Team Rocket member has been through a house and gone taking an man\'s TM28 (Dig). I wonder if the man out the back has somthing to do with it...? The Unknown Dungeon You don\'t get to go in this place until you beat the Elite Four. I\'ll tell you about it later. Cerulean City Things to do Defeat Misty at the Gym Trade Poliwhirl for Jynx Get Bicycle Defeat Rocket at back of house Go to Nugget Bridge Places to Go Pokémon Center Poké Mart Cerulean City Gym Trader\'s House Burgled House Things to Get Cascade Badge TM11 (Bubble Beam) x1 TM28 (Dig) x1 Any Pokémon? Try fishing in the gym for Goldeen, Krabby, and Psyduck. Routes 24 and 25 To reach Bill\'s house, you\'ll first have to defeat the 17 trainers blocking your path. The first one to come up is your Rival, and like you he has got the Cascade and Boulder badges and is a bit stronger, but you can beat him because he will only have a Pidgeotto, an Abra, a Rattata and his starting Pokémon. I just hope you haven\'t been slacking off. Nugget Bridge Once you have kicked your Rival\'s butt, you will battle another five trainers, and since this isn\'t a battle where after you beat one trainer you battle the next one they send out, you can use the Pokémon Center. After those tough battles, you should heal your Pokémon at the Pokémon Center because there is a guy who gives you a Nugget and asks you to join... Team Rocket! You refuse, Result: Battle The Practice area After the rumble on Nugget Bridge, make sure your Pokémon are healed because now you have to battle at least 5-10 trainers! So don\'t expect a battle against a Caterpie, instead expect a battle against tough Pokémon like Onix and Machop. Bill\'s House Man Bill is one huge Pokémaniac! He\'s even a Pokémon! Hey wait a second! He\'s not a Pokémon he\'s a human stuck in a Pokémon Costume. Maybe if you help him he might give you a S.S. Anne Ticket! Go back a second time and have a look at his Pokémon files to add to your Pokédex and as a bonus you will find out his favourite Pokémon. Routes 24 & 25 Things to Get Nugget x1 TM45 (Thunderwave) x1 TM19 (Seismic Toss) x1 S.S. Ticket (From Bill) x1 Any Pokémon? Red Blue Weedle C R Kakuna C R Caterpie R C Metapod R C Oddish R - Bellsprout - R Abra R R Pidgey R R Fish for Psyduck, Krabby, and Goldeen once you get a rod Route 5 Once you leave Cerulean City through the Burgled House, you will find that the only way to get back through is the way you got out. Well, it isn\'t really the only way because you can get back in when you get HM01 (Cut) or HM02 (Fly) and there is a gatehouse you can use on one condition. You have to give the guard some Fresh Water or Soda Pop from the roof top of Celadon City\'s Store and it is big. You can use the elevator but it only gets up to the last floor so when you get to 5th floor your going to have to use the stairs. Daycare for Pokémon When you leave Cerulean City can you can see some ledges with some grass over them. Jump them until you reach a small building, this is the daycare for Pokémon. Inside is an expert baby sitter and he will mind and raise your Pokémon for a small fee. Just remember to pick it up because I left my Nidoqueen there and it grew 9 levels! So if you leave it there, pick it up or else your in for a big bill because its 100P a level and it costs 100P to leave it there and pick it up before it grows just one level! Thirsty Guards There\'s a city closer than you think. Unfortunately the roads are under construction and the gate-house guards are feeling a little bit grouchy because they\'re really thirsty. Maybe they\'d let you pass If you had some Fresh Water or a Soda Pop. Underground Path Don\'t let the closed roads scare you. There are other ways to get around this area. In the house near the gatehouse (Not the Daycare Center) is the entrance to an Underground Path. Route 5 Things to get None Any Pokémon? Red Blue Pidgey C C Oddish R - Mankey R - Bellsprout - R Meowth - R Route 6 Now you\'re through the Underground, you only need to walk south to get to Vermilion City. On your way check the grass for new Poke\'mon. Trainer\'s Talk You\'ll find Bug Catchers and Junior Trainers. The Bug Catcher will be a bit harder because of his LV20 Butterfree that can put you to sleep with it\'s Sleep Powder. Make sure you stock up on Awakening before you fight the Bug Catcher. Route 6 Things to get None Any Pokémon? Red Blue Pidgey C C Oddish R - Mankey R - Bellsprout - R Meowth - R Vermilion City Welcome to the seaside of Vemilion City. Pokémon and Pokémaniacs are celebrated by all. Go to the Pokémon Fan Club, I hear the Chairman is desperate to tell someone about his Pokémon. Hand-Me-Down Fishing Rod The fishing Guru of Vermilion is willing to give you his Old Rod. This rod may be bad unless you want to catch some Magikarp. He has to brothers also giving rods that are better. Vermilion City Poké Mart Here\'s the list of merchandise that you will be able to buy here at the Poké Mart. You should get a heap of Super Potions before boarding the S.S. Anne and fighting Lt. Surge at the Vermilion Gym. Merchandise Poké Ball 200P Super Potion 700P Ice Heal 250P Awakening 200P Parlyz Heal 200P Repel 350P Pokémon Fans Gather! The president of the Fan Club loves to talk about his rare Pokémon. Did you know his favorite is Rapidash? Hear about Rapidash and he will give you his Bike Voucher! He doesn\'t need it because he has a Fearow that knows Fly. Now you have a Bike Voucher, you can get a bike for free in Cerulean City! Trader Alert! A guy in a house wants to trade his very rare Farfetch\'d for a very common Spearow. Surely you have one. Party on the S.S. Anne Before you can do anything in the city, like challenge Surge, you might want to go on the S.S. Anne. The captain will be able to give you cut so you can access the gym! An Electric Gym! Before you can enter the Vermilion City Gym, you must have HM01 (Cut) taught to a Pokémon. A Sasndshrew would be good because you have to fight Electric Pokémon. To unlock Surges door, you have to figure out a code. Defeat Each Trainer (Except maybe the Old Guy who just says \"Lt. Surge\'s Pokémon Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah\".) to get them to talk about the code. Gym Leader Lowdown #3: Lt. Surge of the Vermilion City Gym Before you can Challenge Lt. Surge you have to undo the electrical lock that he uses to keep people out. The trainers will talk - once you\'ve beaten them - and tell you it\'s secret. You have to look in the bins (YUCK!) and when you find the first lock, the second is just next door. Lt. Surge is the leader of an order of Pokémon Trainers dedicated to Electric Pokémon. Only Ground Poke\'mon have a special affinity for defeating Electric Pokémon, so if you were able to pick one up during your travels, you might want to equip it with the Dig skill you picked up in Cerulean City (You know, off the weak Rocket). When you defeat Lt. Surge you\'ll receive the Thunder Badge. This badge allows you to use HM02 (Fly) in and out of battle. It also ups all of your Pokémon\'s speed. In addition to the Badge, Lt. Surge will also give you his TM24. This TM teaches Thunderbolt to one of your Electric Pokémon (Maybe Mew and a few more). Lt. Surge\'s Lineup Voltorb LV21 Pikachu LV18 Raichu LV24 S.S. Anne This Cruise ship is filled with Trainers waiting for a good challenge. As you wander through the decks of this luxury ship, you have the opportunity to talk to the passengers resting in their staterooms. Beware, some will want to fight, while others will dispense good advice. Trainers talk The gang of trainers on the S.S. Anne are a motley bunch ranging from distinguished Lasses and Gentlemen to coarse Fisherman and Sailors. Their Pokémon are also a mixed bag, but you can count on one thing: when you battle a fishermen or a Sailor, you can expect to see a lot of Water Pokémon. All of them fall within the LV17 to LV23 range of experience levels. What\'s a party without good friends? Well, I wouldn\'t exactly call your Rival a good friend, but he\'s here on the S.S. Anne. Use this battle to check your progress. If you need to use all of your Pokémon, you need more training. Three Pokémon, good. If you use one or two, Excellent! \"Do you have anything for SEASICKNESS?\" The Captain is suffering from a dangerous case of seasickness (And I advise you not to look in the bucket). When you help him out he will give you the first HM or Hidden Machine. This one teaches you the Cut skill which is needed alot in the game. Cut allows you to cut down small bushes (Like the one next to the coffee guy in Viridian City or the one blocking the path to the gym in Vermilion City). This allows you to go in Vermilion City Gym and Cerulean City (The easy way in). Note: Once the captain regains his sea legs, it\'s time to set sail. Leave the boat for any reason, and it will take off without you. If you want to fight all of the Trainers and pick up all of the loot lying around, make sure you save the trip to the Captain\'s room until the end. this way you can fight and run out to the Pokémon Center as much as you like. S.S. Anne Things to get TM 08 (Body Slam) x1 Great Ball x1 Max Ether x1 Rare Candy x1 HM01 (Cut) TM44 (Rest) x1 Ether x1 Max Potion Vermilion City Things To Do Get HM01 (Cut) from the Captain of the S.S. Anne Defeat Lt. Surge at the gym Talk to the president of the Pokémon fan club Trade a Spearow for Farfetch\'d Get the Old Rod from the Fishing Guru Places to go Pokémon Center Poké Mart Vermilion City Gym Trader\'s House Pokémon Fan Club Fishing Guru\'s House Things to get Bike Voucher Old Rod Thunder Badge TM24 (Thunderbolt) x1 Route 11 Tackle this route after you have finished your bisiness on the S.S. Anne and in Vermilion City. Unfortunatly you won\'t be able to continue to Route 12 thanks to the Snorlax blocking the way. Come back when you have the Poké item to get past it (Poké item wasn\'t the word, but I\'m not telling). But fortunatly you can climb up the gatehouse and meet Prof. Oak\'s Aide. Have 30 or more Pokémon and you get an Item finder off him (Check Items guide in back)! Trainers Talk This field is full of Trainers (10 to be exact). Sigh! A bit of wiping up. It\'s a dirty job but someone has to do it! Youngsters, Gamblers, and Engineers. Out of the three, Engineers are the most predictable. Come on! Think about what Engineers are about... Electricity! The electric Pokémon are easy if you got a Sandshrew or a Geodude back at Mt. Moon. The Level of Pokémon is LV18-LV21. Sing the song \"Enjo, Enjo, Enjo, En cleaning we will go!\" and make it happen! Diglett\'s Cave With Snorlax blocking the road, you\'ll have no other choice but to take Diglett\'s Cave back to Route 2 below Pewter City. Only to different Pokémon here. Diglett and Dugtrio, Pretty good Pokémon and that is the only place to get them.So go there and you need to get HM05 (Flash) from that house. Route 11 Things to get Item Finder Any Pokémon? Red Blue Spearow C C Arbok C - Sandshrew - C Drowzee R R Route 9 Now that you have the Cut ability, you can take this Route to Rock Tunnel and Lavender Town. The Trainers here are about as tough as the ones on the S.S. Anne and Route 11. When I was playing Blue version, I had Blastoise here, same on Red but I had a Charizard. You should have an easy time with them unless you\'ve been slacking off and your party is this: Starter Pokémon: LV15 Geodude: LV12-18, Dig, Tackle, Defense Curl and Rock Throw Paras: LV11, Scratch Rattata: LV7, Tackle, Tail Whip, Quick Attack Clefable: LV14, Sing, Double Slap, Minimize, Metronome Zubat: LV12, Leech Life, Supersonic Your party should be this: Charmeleon/Charizard, Wartortle/Blastoise, or Ivysaur/Venusaur: LV28-40 (But make sure it obeys you) The other Pokémon I mentioned at the top should be this: Geodude/Graveler: LV27 Paras/Parasect: LV26-30 Raticate: LV20 Clefairy: LV30-40 (Good moves if not evolved with Moon Stone until LV45) Zubat/Golbat: LV25-30 You can have a bit less Levels then that but those are good. Just don\'t go over the top and at the start I told you what the badges do. If you aren\'t sure, check! Back to Route 9, if your Pokémon run out of health just use the Pokémon right outside Rock Tunnel. Trainers Talk This area is full of a whole heap of trainers. But hopefully you should be able to beat all of them. If your running out of energy and would be to hard to battle, some trainers you can dodge. I think you would find Junior Trainers provide you with a challenge. With there Pokémon at LV19-23 I don\'t think they will be hard and they also have some rare Pokémon liuke a Charmander and a powerful Meowth. A Lovely Stream When you get the HM 03 (Surf), you\'ll want to come back here and explore the stream north of the Pokémon Center. An abandoned Power Plant is doen the stream. You will be able to find tons of electric Pokémon and it is said, after the Plant was abandoned, Zapdos, the legendary bird of Thunder, came to roost here. Rock Tunnel Make good use of the Pokémon Center outside the tunnel. You don\'t know what\'s inside. For now any way. Route 9 Things to get TM30 (Teleport) Any Pokémon? Red Blue Rattata C C Spearow C C Arbok C - Sandshrew - C Voltorb C C Rock Tunnel The Rock Tunnel is a dark place. If you have a lanturn then you must have switched data in your game around with Final Fantasy or some other game (Please Don\'t try that at home). If you required HM05 (Flash) then good on you. You also better have a Pokémon to use it. At least some people are doing it right. Actually I shouldn\'t say \"at least some people are getting it right\" because I didn\'t get Flash in my first game. So back to the walkthrough... Good Luck. Trainers Talk As you would think, the Rock Tunnel is full of... Rock Pokémon and people with rock Pokémon. The Trainer\'s Pokémon Levels are LV19-25. It sure is dark in here As I said up there, I did this without Flash. And you can too. Just walk along the walls. It may be hard and long but you will make it! Things to get None Any Pokémon? Red Blue Zubat C C Geodude R R Machop R R Onix R R Route 10 When you just left the rock tunnel you got surrounded by 4 Trainers. Take the path to the right if you don\'t want a fight. And that tree by it self seems suspicious. Lavender Town The town south of Rock Tunnel is-Lavender Town. It is home of the Pokémon Tower which is home to many dead Pokémon. May they Rest in Peace. ANd the town is talking a lot about ghosts haunting... A Spooky Building The safest of all the floors (Yeah, only humans). It seems Team Rocket has been PHYSICALLY abusing all the Cubones there. You can try to get up the top but you won\'t get far without a SILPH SCOPE... Thank you come again! In the Poké Mart there are some new items you will need so as Apu says on the Simpsons \"Thankyou come again\" you might need to.

But the sad thing is if you traded a Pokémon with a friend and your friend called it a dumb Nickname or a naughty Nickname (Like my friend), then Mr. Big Shot Rater can\'t change it. Community Service Mr. Fuji\'s Abandoned Pokémon Shelter is run by some nice community people. Unfortunately, the Draw out competition form has been clipped out. Well... that\'s not REALLY unfortunate. But the UNFORTUNATE news is Mr Fuji is being held at the top of the Pokémon Tower by, well let\'s take a guess. I think your RIVAL. Oh I was wrong. It was TEAM ROCKET! Oh how could I be so stupid (Sarcasm).

None Route 8 Once again, you are in an area with Road Construction. You have to use the underground path (I wish they added a subway so it would be easier) to get to Celadon City. Taking the Underground will take you to Route 7. And you know, if you do things right you will only have to one battle with a trainer. I\'ll tell you what you do: 1. When you enter Route 8 there will be two trainers, battle one and walk left until you see a tree you can cut. 2. Cut the tree and go through to the other side (NOTE: There are 3 ways you can do this: Go through the grass, cut the grass or go down the bottom) 3. Cut the next tree and walk left until you see these boulder-type-wall-thingys walk up on the edge of them until you are level with the bottom of the house walk until you reach the door and your done.

Celadon City Celadon City i known for the Department Store and it\'s Game Corner. Rumors are going around about the Game Corner. When you talk to the guy running the Game Corner for 50 coins you will see why it\'s suspicious (They gave away who runs it in the game!). And the Pokémon Mansion isn\'t that bad. Two Birds hit with one stone From what you can see when you enter Celadon City, the Mansion only has one entrance but in fact, if your smart enough you might be able to find a door to get you in a different place(Your IQ has to be 10 or higher to find it). On the first floor (This is through normal door), you will find a person who is in the Managers Suite and gets Meowth to bring money back. The second floor is the Game Freak Meeting Room but is free for your own use. But the only thing you can do is use the PC. On the third floor, the game designers are working. One created the player (Talk about playing God), and others are designing. The guy not using the computer will give you a Diploma if you catch the first 150 (You don\'t need Mew). The mysterious fourth floor requires you to use the secret entrance. Inside is a man. Take the Poké Ball which contains... Eevee! Check the blackboard to see information. Elmo wants to know if Celadon\'s Store is bigger the Hoopers Store Well Elmo, Celadon\'s store is ten times bigger than Hooper\'s Store. And it has some darn good stuff. TMs, Battle stuff, drugs and at the top (You have to use door on 5th floor)-Drinks!

Hey what am I doing in the forest? This forest happens to be the gym! Only females allowed to join. Too bad. If you do things right, you will only have to fight one trainer before Erika. Gym Leader Lowdown #4: Erika of the Celadon City Gym Erika is one strong person with a green thumb. She uses grass Pokémon. All three starter Pokémon are good against her. Charmander uses fire attacks, Squirtle is good if you get Ice Beam off the girl on Celadon Department Store Rooftop. And Bulbasaur is a grass Pokémon himself so if you taught him Body Slam or something like that-Good Work! If you win Erika will give you the Rainbow Badge and TM21 (Mega Drain) and in addition to that all Pokémon up to LV50 will obey.
