Hello to you too! Here are your answers!
1. To recieve the HM Cut in Pokemon Yellow you must travel to Vermillion City and go aboard the S.S. Anne. To be able to do this, you must go and see Bill at the Cerulean Cape. Helping Bill get back his actual body is the only way to gain your boarding pass! Once aboard the S.S. Anne, travel around the boat until you reach a flight of stairs. This will trigger an encounter with your rival! Be sure to have a few potions on hand, because being ill prepared for even THIS fairly easy fight can stick you back in Vermillion City! After defeating your rival, head up the flight of stairs, where you will find the sea sick Captain of the SS Anne! Rubbing his back will make him most grateful to you and he will reward you with the Hidden Machine Cut!
2. Facing Brock is indeed tricky without a water type...But never fear! There is an alternative! Two actually. One involves countless hours of grinding, which I doubt is very high on your list to do, so for time's sake, we'll got with option two! Cruise around Viridian Forest and catch a Caterpie. (I know...just bear with me here.) Train this Caterpie. At level 7, you'll get a Metapod. At level 10, you'll get a Butterfree! Grind this Butterfree for two more levels and it will learn Confusion! This move is the gem you have been seeking young trainer! I of course took no risks and did grinding to level 15...but 12 or 13 will do. Use Confusion on Brock's Geodude and Onix...You'll have a Boulder Badge in no time at all!
