Route 2 & The Old Man

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Pokemon Blue

Route 2 & The Old Man

Description Of Route 2:

Now that Oak's Parcel has been delivered and you officially have your Pokedex and can start catching Pokemon, you now have access to Route 2 (north of Viridian City). But first, you must learn from the passed out old man how to catch a Pokemon.

After the lesson was learned, you now can move passed him into Route 2. The route is pretty basic as all the other routes have been thus far, having now trainers to battle. The only thing you can really do is catch a few Pokemon to go with your starter before heading into the Viridian Forest, which is smack dab in the middle of the route.

If you really want to bolster your team, try catching either a Nidoran Male or Female on Route 22. By the time you reach Cerulean City or Vermilion City, you can easily have a Nidoqueen or Nidoking since you can obtain a Moon Stone either in the game. They have a lot of power, and will definitely help you in the beginning stages and Gyms in the game.

Items On Route 2:

There are a few items obtainable on Route 2, but the area that holds them isn't accessible until later in the game.

Pokemon In Route 2:


Rattata - Levels 2-5 - 45% Appearance Rate

Pidgey - Levels 3-5 - 40% Appearance Rate

Caterpie - Levels 3-5 - 15% Appearance Rate
