the team rocket boss is in celadon. in one of the buildings u will find a team rocket guy who will tell you to back off. this guy stands in front of a poster in the building. then u defeat him and press A when u r close to the poster. When u press that button a secret staircase will open up which leads to the secret team rocket base

The team rocket boss is in the celedon city. There are two different buildings check them. In one building you will get a member of team rocket standing in front of a poster you have to defeat him. Then you have to stand close to the poster press A button and you will see a secret staircase you have to go there

I had the same problem, which I just 'solved'. Go to the Pokemon League west of Viridian City, and attempt to progress. My guess is that one of the guards won't let you progress - like me, you'll realize that you are accidentally missing a badge. Mine was the Marsh badge with Sabrina in Saffron City, which I think is easy to forget. Just go through the Pokemon league guards. If you make it to the eatherbadge before getting stopped, then you have a legitimate problem. But I searched for the answer to this question for a long time before realizing that I had made a mistake, when the guard at the League told me I didn't have the marshbadge, much to my surprise.

Uhhm, I have a question. It says I don't have the Marshabadge so I cant pass here. But when I check my profile it says I have 7 out of 8 badges? And the only badge I'm missing is the last one. Any solutions?

I used the "All Badges" Gameshark code so my Pokemon would obey no matter the level. I defeated all Gym leaders up to Blaine with just Giovanni at Viridian left. I have defeated every single trainer, every team rocket grunt, spoken to every single person in the game, defeated Giovanni both in Celadon Game Corner and at Silph Co. In Saffron. The Viridian Gym still locked. I have looked all over the place and find nothing. I have completed the entire campaign up until that point with the exception of victory road and the Elite 4. I think it has to do with the Gameshark code for all badges unless others experiencing the same issue didn't use a Gameshark for all badges or at all for that matter.

You need to go to Saffron and win the badge there.Take strong water type and psychic. You should then be able to enter the Viridian gym.
