(You’re in your bedroom) Go to the computer and access your PC,
get the potion and get downstairs. Go outside, now go to the very
north, you should see some grass looking areas, go onto it, before you
get far, Prof. Oak will stop you and lead you to his lab. Here you
will receive your first Pokemon, Pikachu! Before you get out of the lab, Gary
will challenge you to your first match. If you win, you get some money, if you lose, Gary gets the
bragging rights. One more thing, Pikachu will grow to level 6 if
Now that you have a Pokemon, go on to the bush in the north and
find fights, get Pikachu up to level 10. If Pikachu faints (make
sure that it doesn’t, run from battles if you need to), you’ll be
back in your house, talk to your mom and go back onto route 1. Make
your way through the route, talk to anybody you see, one guy will give
you a free potion, another will tell you a "faster" way to
Go directly up and right to that first building (with a
"poke" sign on it) and go inside, go up and talk to the
nurse behind the counter (yes, it’s a nurse, whistle!) she’ll
offer to heal your Pokemon, select heal. Now go northeast to the
pokemart (with a "mart" sign), you’ll receive Prof. Oak’s
Parcel. Go back to Pallet town, picking fights as you go (get Pikachu
up to level 11).
Go back into Oak’s lab and talk to him, he’ll give you and Gary
each a pokedex. Now go into Gary’s house and get a town’s map,
despite what Gary said, his sister will still give you map.
Now get Pikachu up to level 12. Go into Viridian City.
Now heal your Pokemon. Get a potion and 6 pokeballs at the pokemart,
you’ll need them later. Go back to route 1.
Capture a Pidgey and raise it to level 10, capture a Rattata and
raise it to level 7 (it should have learned quick attack). Your Pokemon
should be around level 12 or above, above would be great. Go
back to Viridian City.
Switch your Pidgey as your leading Pokemon. Now go north into Viridian Forest.
(Don’t forget to heal your Pokemon at the Viridian pokecenter
Go to the poke center and heal your Pokemon, go up and stop when
you see an old man. Go left and you’ll see a broccoli like bush.
Press A and you’ll find a secret potion. Now go north to the
Viridian Forest (Pokemon catching spree)
Now with a level 10 Pidgey leading, Pikachu at
level 13, and a level 8 Rattata (you won’t be using this much, only
to catch some Pokemon) you’re ready for the forest. Immediately go up and turn right into
that bush of grass. Now you can find the caterpillar Pokemon Caterpie. Use this chance to build up your
other Pokemon. Fight with a Caterpie
until level 12 (it’ll evolve twice). The final evolution of Caterpie
is Butterfree, his psychic attack Confusion will be a big help
soon! Remember to go back to Viridian City
if you need medical help.
Viridian Forest (getting through the forest)
At the entrance, head northwest to find a pokeball. Go back to the
entrance and go right again, follow the path to find a bug catcher
trainer, it should be no problem if you have a level 12 Butterfree and
a 12 Pidgey. Go up the grass bush, you’ll
be challenged by another bug trainer. Go up and get the potion,
remember if your monster have fainted or has really bad/low health
(what I mean by bad is situations like poisoned, etc.), go back to the
Viridian City poke center. Use potions and antidotes only if you
really must. Keep on going, follow the road as it zigzags through the
forest. Keep on going until you reach another fork in the road, you
should be facing south when you encounter it. Go right and down to
find another potion. From there make your way to the northwest. There’s
another bug trainer in your way but it’s nothing you can’t handle.
Go north and exit.
Instead of going to Brock, go heal your Pokemon and go back to
Viridian City instead, and from there, make your way west of town.
This is a great place to capture new Pokemon. Don't miss both
Nidorans, Spearow, and especially Mankey. If you go to far you will
I missed Gary here my first trip, he has added a Spearow to his
lineup since your last battle. Note: the outcome of these
first two battles determines how Gary will later on Evolve his
Eevee. If you beat him both times he will have a Jolteon, If you
win the first battle but lose this one he will have a Flareon, and if
you lose both he will evolve Eevee into a Vaporeon.
The guard at the gate won’t let you through, so let’s get the
badges shall we? Go back through the forest to Pewter City.
Heal your Pokemon. Now put Butterfree in front and head into the pewter city gym. Brock will give you the
Boulder Badge and TM
34, which teaches bide (I wouldn’t use this, I’d just sell it
). After you
finish Brock, go and buy 4 or 5 pokeballs at the pokemart. Heal your Pokemon
and head northwest to the museum. Talk to everyone, you’ll
be able to fix the clues together later. Go right from the entrance to
the museum and you’ll find another bush looking thing, cut it later
when you get HM 01 and go inside, you’ll find a scientist who will
give you Old Amber. Oh, 1 more thing, get an escape rope, you’ll
need it pretty soon.
Brock has a level 10 Geodude and a level 12 Onix, Butterfree should
go all the way with Harden and the Confusion attack, but have a
Nidoran or Mankey backing him up just incase. Don't even think
about using Pikachu...trust me.
Ah, nothing like a scent of fresh air as we step outside, its time
to set out on foot again. Note: before you go on route 3, get your
Pikachu to level 13. There are several trainers on route 3, nothing
you can’t handle. Just follow this formula: use Pidgey against Caterpie
and grass Pokemon, and Pikachu against flying Pokemon. Capture a
Sandshrew on the way. Build
your Pikachu up to level 16, practice experience on Spearows and
Pidgeys. After a long walk, we come to the entrance of Mt. Moon. Heal
your Pokemon at the pokecenter right next to the entrance and enter
Put a Pikachu in the lead for Zubats, if a trainer sends out a rock
type Pokemon send out Butterfree, if they send out a plant
or bug Pokemon use Pidgey . Then capture 2 Clefairies (1 for
trade) and teach yours Water Gun (TM 12). Be sure you
also capture a Geodude and a Paras before you are out of there. Oh and by the
way, use the escape rope you bought to get out of Mt. Moon if you’re
Walk through for items: (entrance) go up and left, you’ll face
your first trainer (hopefully, no wild Pokemon bothers you). After
defeating him, go and get the potion to the left, then go down, you
should see another item, it’s TM 12. Now go east, you’ll
be challenged again. Follow the trail up and right, go through the
ladder on the right, follow the road to another ladder, as soon as you
walk out of that ladder, you’ll find your first team rocket member
and a HP UP on the stairs. Go back up to the main floor when you
finish the rocket. Go south and you’ll be challenged yet again,
getting fun isn’t it? Go southwest from there to find yet another
potion. Go east and you’ll find some rare candy (raises one of your Piketon's
level by one) go up north to get an escape rope. Be sure
to challenge that trainer you passed. Go up north and face yet another
trainer, switch your Pidgey or Butterfree into the leading Pokemon before you challenge her (I’d go with
need a level 17 Butterfree as soon as you exit Cerulean City). Then go
left and then down into another ladder, follow the road to another and
challenge the team rocket member, remember to swap your Pokemon back
before the challenge. Get TM 01 (mega punch) and go back to the main
floor. Face another trainer to the south of you. To the left is
another one guarding a ladder. Be sure to get the moon stone on the
top left corner before going down the ladder. When you’ve entered
the ladder, follow the trail to another rocket, beware of this one, I
had a pretty hard time with him. After you beat the rocket, go back up
the OTHER side and follow the road, you’ll find some Clefairies
here, challenge another rocket member and then a greedy little man.
Choose a fossil, doesn’t matter which fossil you get, they are both
good. From there, head west. Go down through the ladder and another
one and you’re home free, thank goodness!
After that long, (cough, cough) long walk, we’re heading towards
Cerulean City. Be sure to pick up TM 04 (whirlwind) and do something
with it, I think it’s useless, so I sold it. Capture a Mankey or a
Sandshrew if you missed them before. Your Pikachu should be at level
22 (don’t fight ground type Pokemon like Sandshrews with Pikachu).
Jump over the hedge on the east and head towards Cerulean City.
Heal your Pokemon and buy some more pokeballs, deposit all the TMs
and escape ropes you didn’t use and use your rare candy and HP UP on
a Pokemon. Deposit your Rattata too, if you haven’t already. Also
store the moonstone into your PC too. Head for the Gym, right next to
the pokecenter. If you have a level 22 Pikachu, it’ll be a very
short fight, just use thunder shock.
Cerulean City Gym
You can tell that these guys love water, they’ve transferred the
gym into a pool!!! You’ll face 2 lieutenants before you meet Misty.
Misty has a level 18 Staryu and a level 21 Starmie, Pikachu or any other plant
type Pokemon would do. Do not
use fire, what ever you do. The Cascade Badge and TM 11 are your
rewards for defeating her. With the Cascade Badge in hand you
can also get Bulbasaur from the trainer next to the pokecenter!
After defeating Misty, the road to the north will open up, but
first visit the bike shop on the southwest corner. They sell bikes for
the cheap price of $1,000,000 dollars? 5,000 times the price of my
bike, but of course nothing is cheap here, a pokeball costs
The Nugget Bridge
Team Rocket has 6 members guarding route 24, but before you can do
much, you’ll have to face Gary.
Ash versus Gary III is interesting because he now has four Pokemon
from levels 15-18.
The Nugget Bridge
Defeat all 6 members of the team rocket to receive a nugget, sell
it off to get $5,000, sweet!
Route 24 & 25
Go north and find
TM 45 (Thunderwave, your Pikachu should already have learned this,
sell it). The trainer here will give you Charmander for FREE! Then go south, whatever you do, don’t go through the
trainers to the east, instead, try to catch Venonant, Bellsprout, and
Oddish. After you
pass the trainers to the east, you’ll see a house nearby, go in it. Note:
Pikachu should be approaching level 23 or 24, and by now the rest of
your team should try to be up to level 20.
When you go into the house, you’ll see "Bill". Talk to
him and help him transform back to a human. Now after he’s normal,
go and talk to him again, he’ll give you the S.S.
Quickly go back to Cerulean City.
Go to the pokecenter and heal your Pokemon. Make sure you have at
least 2 awakenings and 2 pokeballs. Exit the pokecenter and go to the
house on the northeast corner, go out to the backyard and defeat team rocket.
As a reward you will receive the TM Dig. Dig is an excellent
ground attack and can also be used to escape dungeons! Go heal your
Pokemon and come back here again. This time,
go right, all the way right, then south, you’ll eventually find a
road that looks like it’s for luxury people, this is route 5.
Be sure to drop off a weak Pokemon at the daycare. To do this, jump
down the middle path to reach the Daycare Center. For a small
fee you can leave a Pokemon with him and he will train him for
you. Also in the tall grass above the daycare center is your
first chance to capture Jigglypuff and the elusive Abra. Here is
a secret to capture Abra; use Butterfree and the Sleep Powder attack
to keep Abra from teleporting out of battle. Now it is easy to
weaken and capture him! From there go right into the underground path.
Come out the other side of the underground path and capture more Pokemon
you may have missed, then fight the six trainers and walk into the Vermilion
Buy some super potions and some pokeballs, you should also have 2
or 3 awakenings. Go heal your Pokemon and explore the whole town,
going into each house. One guy will give you an Old Fishing Rod, and another will give you a
Bike Voucher, which you can take to the bike shop in Cerulean City to trade
for a bike. Return to Vermilion City after you get the bike, make your
way east of town and down the tiled bridge.
Too bad they don’t allow any cycling around here. Explore every
room, go the east way first (go down the stairs on the southeast side
of the ship when you first enter). I missed the kitchen, which is on
the very southwest side of the ship when you first come in, visit that
second. Go back to Vermilion City and heal your Pokemon every time
your Pokemon are almost dead, fight every fight you can, and go to the
captain last. You should also visit the deck to gain experience for
your Pokemon. To do this, go left at the entrance, (visit the stairs
on the right first and the kitchen second) then go down the stairs you
found. Go south to the next stairs, DON’T go right yet. When you
have reached these stairs, keep on going west. To visit the captain,
go left when you first come in, then down but DON’T go into the
stairs, go right and then go up, but before you can go into the
captain’s lounge, you’ll hear an annoying voice.
Gary has trained his Pokemon since your last encounter, now they
are at levels 17-20. This is a good gauge for how well you are
doing, if this battle is tough you may need to get more experience for
Go up to the captain and press A, you’ll rub his back and he’ll
give you HM Cut! Like Dig this can
be taught to a Pokemon as an attack, and also serves as a way to cut
down small trees that will get in your way! Note: Do not
look into the captain's garbage can. =)
Bye, Bye S.S. Anne
Get out of the ship and watch the cruise ship leave. Then head for
Diglett’s cave to the right of the entrance of S.S. Anne.
Capture a level 22 Diglett, or if you are lucky a high level
Dugtrio! Mine was level 40 and was a tough battle, but he was
worth it when I battled Lt. Surge. Go out on the other side of Diglett’s Cave,
you’ll find yourself on the right side of route 2, which you couldn’t
get to before, go south and go into that house, trade a Clefairy for a
Mr. Mime. Mr. Mime was is a great early addition to my team
because of his boosted experience. Get out of the house and keep on heading south, go into the
next house and talk to a scientist like person and get the HM
Flash. Don’t forget to get Old Amber
at Pewter City. Go back to Vermilion City, use the cave.
Head east of town.
Defeat the trainers and head east, get the item finder and go back
to Vermillion City.
Now that you have Cut, cut the bush on the south and go into the
gym, placing your Diglett at the very front.
Vermilion City Gym
First talk to the guy on the right when you enter, he’ll tell you
that you need to solve a code to reach the lieutenant, defeat the 3
trainers in the gym and talk to them, they’ll tell you how to solve
the code, I’m not even going to spoil this for you.
When you’ve solved the code, challenge the lieutenant. He has a
level 28 Raichu. Put a Diglett (which should be approaching level 26) in front and keep on
using dig, you’ll win in no time, teach TM 24 to Pikachu or Clefairy
and your Diglett will have almost evolved into Dugtrio, use it against
poison, electric, fire, and rock typed Pokemon. Return to Cerulean
City. Surge will give you the Thunder Badge and TM 24 (thunderbolt).
Don't forget to visit Officer Jenny in the middle of town after this
battle to receive Squirtle!
There’s a bush on route 25, cut it and get TM 19 inside it, go to
the sea cottage now and talk to Bill, do what he says, go on the PC.
Go back to Cerulean City, cut that bush to the very south of the
city, go northeast and you’ll see a short path leading to a bush,
cut that and seek out 10 trainers on the way, the 10th is
at the very end, by the rock tunnel entrance. You will be able to
catch Magnemite and Machamp along this route for the first time.
Heal up in the pokecenter and make sure one of your team knows the
This one is not as confusing as Mt. Moon, but the thing is, there
is a ton of trainers and no items :( If you have the flash ability,
you’ll get through very easily since you can see). Put a grass Pokemon
in front, and be sure to capture an Onix.
After exiting the rock tunnel, you’ll need to defeat a few more
trainers before you can reach Lavender town. There’s a bush on the
very north east of the route, go to it and press A to find a secret
ether, which replenishes your Pokemon's abilities PP.
Go to the pokecenter and pokemart and go west (don’t visit any
other place except for the name rater just yet).
There are several trainers here, ranging from levels 22-26. Go into the little house at the end and go through
the underground path.
Go northwest to reach Celadon City, you might also consider gaining
some experience in the field of grass nearby.
Before you go to the poke center, go up and then left. When you see
an opening go up and left and down, keep on going on to the stairs and
go into that little lab house thingie to get a very rare Pokemon called
Eevee, evolve it into a Flareon, Jolteon, or Vaporeon with the
appropriate stones found in this city. Now visit the pokecenter and
get ready for the Celadon City Gym.
Celadon City Gym
There’s a peeping tom outside of it, it’s a wonder why, the gym
is full of girls, after you get through 10 or so, you face Erika.
Erikas got 3 grass type Pokemon, a level 30 Tangela, a level 32
Weepinbell, and a level 32 Gloom. Flareon or Charizard
will wipe them out faster than you can say good bye. Defeat her and
to get the Rainbow Badge and TM 21 (Mega Drain).
Celadon City Department Store
Go into the elevator and go to the top floor, then go up the stairs
to reach the roof, there’s a vending machine nearby, get 2 waters, a
lemonade, and a soda pop, give 1 of each type of drink to the little
girl, she’ll give you TM 13, TM 48, and TM 49. Now buy some great
balls, some revives and some paralyze heal. Also buy a Pokedoll and
any Fire, Leaf, Thunder, or Water Stones you may need!
Talk to the guy at the very top. After you defeat him, go to the
poster and press A. A secret door to the right of you will open up. Go
Surviving Team Rocket’s Secret basement
As soon as you get in, seek out the 2 trainers around you, be sure
to get the escape rope to the southwest of where you started from,
then return to where you were at the beginning and go down the stairs
on the right side. Go west and you’ll be challenged. Now go upwards
and down the stairs, go south to get the TM 10. Make your way through
the maze of the "arrows". Go down the ladder at the very
end. Now, that you’re at the 4th basement, it’s time
for the Lift Key, go northwest and defeat the rocket, talk to him
after, you’ll get the lift key, make your way back to the second
basement, get the 4 items while breaking through the second maze, go
up the ladder and get the hyper potion at the northwest corner, go
back down the stairs and then go into the elevator, go to floor B4,
after the elevator stops, go to the southwest and get the Iron, now
defeat the 2 trainers that you passed and talk to the black suited man
holding the Silph Scope.
Giovanni has 2 ground type Pokemon, including a Ryhorn and an Onix,
he also has a Persian, a team of water/grass and fighting Pokemon will fit perfectly, use the water/grass
Pokemon against the ground Pokemon, and the fighting Pokemon against the
Go east to 7, be sure you have the bottle of water with you, go
into the guard house leading to Saffron City, After you get into
Saffron City, go north to the Fighting Dojo Gym, (the one to the
left), put a psychic Pokemon in front, choose either Hitmonchan or
Hitmonlee after you
beat everyone, I chose Hitmonchan after experimenting with both. Head
east to Lavender Town.
Go into that big tower. If you did previously you will know
you'll need the Silph Scope.
Before you can do much, the annoying voice strikes again.
Our Buddy is now up to 5 Pokemon on his team, all ranging from
levels 22-25. His team looks very balanced, yours will need to
be to if you want to beat him!
Make you way to the very top of the tower, and get the 7
items along the way. At the sixth floor, you’ll meet a Marowak, you
can’t capture this ground type Pokemon, so you’ll have to make it
faint, use a water or grass Pokemon to fight against it, use the same
types to fight against Cubones, you’ll face Jessie and James on the seventh
floor, defeat them and rescue old Mr. Fuji, he’ll give you a Pokeflute……
Go to the center of the city and into the big building
Use the elevator to get to the 5th floor, go to the very
south and get the Card Key, if your Pokemon
need experience, seek
every rocket/scientist/juggler there are in the building, but if you
want to end this quickly, then go to the 3rd floor and go
southwest, open the gate with the card key, go in and step on to the
tile, and hey! Haven’t you learned to leave me alone Gary????
Even though you just fought, Gary's made big improvements to his
team. You will notice that he has evolved his Eevee and his team
is up to the 35-40 level range!
Saving the Day
Talk to the guy nearby to receive a Lapras, step on the tile at the
bottom, defeat the rocket in your way, if you need medical help, go
to the southwest corner on the 9th floor. Anyway, as soon
as you open the door with the card key, out comes Giovanni.
He’s got 4 Pokemon this time, including high level
Nidorans. Put a water Pokemon in the front and you should have
no trouble, be cautious though since Giovanni's Pokemon are all in the
35-41 level range.
The Master Ball
Talk to the president, he’ll give you the master ball, there’s
only 1 like it in the game, like they say, save it for a very special Pokemon.
At the southeast corner of the city, he’ll give you TM 29, which
teaches psychic. Teach it to Mr. Mime and with Light Screen and
Barrier you should have a very high-powered Pokemon!
To the very northwest of the city, at the second story, be sure you
have a pokedoll with you, if you do, copycat will give you TM 31,
which teaches mimic.
Saffron City Gym
Step on the first warp tile and keep on stepping on the tile that's above or below you to get to the next room, sooner or later you’ll
get to a large room with a girl in it, this is Sabrina.
Sabrina has a level 50 Abra, level 50 Kadabra, and a level 50
Alakazam. I had a hard time with Sabrina
using Blastoise, so I switched to Dugtrio and kept on using
earthquake, be sure to have a lot of potions, if you have a Charizard,
get it to level 45 and keep on using slash, it’ll finish them with 2
or 3 strikes each (might be more with Kadabra or Alakazam because of
their move recover), if you have Venasaur, keep on using razor leaf,
except on Venomoth, on which you should use Flareon instead. When you’ve
beaten Sabrina, you’ll get the Marsh Badge and TM 46, which teaches
After getting your 5th badge, head back to Lavender
Town, then head south, be sure to pick up the super rod on route 12,
you’ll see some grass fields, you can capture some new Pokemon the
ever elusive Farfetch'd. Don’t forget to get TM 20 and iron,
also a little gift from Oak’s aid. There are lots of bikers (poison Pokemon), and bird catchers (the name say it) around here too, easy if
you have a well trained Pikachu and a well trained Kadabra/Dugtrio.
Oh, and by the way, if you try to capture the Snorlax with the
Pokeflute, save before you
do it as you only get two chances in the game.
The city is really a maze itself, to reach the pokecenter and the
gym, you’ll have to head to the west of the city, not out of it, and
follow the little path leading south, visit the gym right after the
Fuchsia City Gym
If you look closely at the screen, you’ll see tiny dotted lines.
This is the invisible wall, go around it and finally reach Koga. There
will be a few trainers, I had problems with Hypno, took about 60 HP
from me with 2 Head butts. Funny that this gym calls themselves ninja
trainers, they train psychic and poison Pokemon, maybe they should
try out for Sabrina’s gym instead.
Koga is at the very middle of the gym, he will send out three
Venonats and a level 50 Venemoth. A Kadabra/Alakazam
or a Dugtrio will make this a pretty short fight. Beat him, the Soul
Badge and TM 06 (toxic) is yours.
It’s at the very north of the city, there will be at least 15 species
of different Pokemon, as well as some Pokemon that can only be
captured in the Safari Zone. Just so you know Exeggcute,
Marowak, Tangela, Kangaskhan, Tauros, and Dragonair can only be found
also find the Warden’s Gold Teeth and HM
Give warden his gold teeth and he’ll award you with HM
Strength, so you can move, say, that boulder in the
warden’s house? Get some ultra balls at the pokemart too.
Capture a Raticate and a Fearow on the way, before you go to Cycing
Road make sure you have the Bicycle and the Pokeflute. Along the
way if you need a "break" with your fingers and your
bike, press B to stop. If you have already gotten rid of or have
captured the Snorlax in the way, then cut the bush blocking the way
north. Now keep on going west, you’ll see a little house with a girl
inside, talk to her and she’ll give you HM
back to any city you’ve visited already). Head towards Cerulean City
Be sure to have a Pokemon with Surf and a Pokemon who has Fly with
you, head east towards Rock Tunnel. Before Rock Tunnel, head towards
the edge of the river to the north and dive into the water using surf,
keep on paddling towards the south until you reach a big building,
this is the power plant.
The Power Plant
Put a Dugtrio in front. Be sure to get a Magnemite and a Magneton
if you can, as well as Muk and Grimer. Make your way through, getting the rare candy, carbos, HP UP,
and TM 33/TM 25. Be careful, lots of the items on the floor are
actually level 40 Voltorbs. At the near end of the power plant you’ll
come across a bird looking Pokemon…..
Save before you meet this guy, you should not have any problems
with Zapdos, just get his energy down and throw ultra balls at it, it
took me 2 tries to get him, I think he is the easiest out of the 3
legendary birds. Exit and fly back to Fuchsia City.
Sea Route 19
Head south of Fuchsia City. There are lots of trainers here, but no
problems for you. Keep on heading south west until you reach an island
with 2 cave entrances, go into the one that you can.
As you are descending through the levels, push the boulders into
the pit, the idea is to block the river below so that you don’t get
washed away. At the 3rd level, push 2 boulders down to the
4th level, jump in after them. You’ll land in the water,
head north until you see Articuno, another bird.
I had problems with this guy, I got it’s health all the way down,
but I always miss with my ultra ball, took me about 10 ultra balls
before I caught him. If you have trouble try using Sleep or
Paralyze attacks to make it easier to capture!
Sea Route 20
After you get out of the islands, head west and you’ll reach
Cinnibar Island. The gym is locked, wonder if there’s a key…..
Go to the pokecenter (located in the south) and the pokemart (right
beside the pokecenter). Withdraw the Fossil and Old Amber, give it to
the Scientist in the 3rd door at the Pokemon Lab (southwest
corner of the island). Now head to Pokemon Mansion (northwest corner).
Flip on switches inside statues as you make your way up. At he 3rd
floor, flip on the switch at the statue and head south, jump off the
ledge in the middle. Defeat a nearby trainer and head northeast, the Secret
Key, however, is at the western section, so you’ll have to
make your west, when you’ve gotten the secret key, dig out of there.
Go to the Pokemon gym.
Cinnibar City Gym
You’ll have to challenge trainers to open doors, after a while,
you’ll see old man Blaine.
Blaine’s Pokemon are pretty hot stuff, but you can take care of
them with a water or rock Pokemon. He has a level 48 Ninetails, a
level 50 Rapidash, a level 54 Arcanine. Articuno should mow thru
these guys. After
you defeat him, you’ll be awarded with the Volcano
Badge and TM 38,
which teaches fire blast.
Sea Route 21
Head north of Cinnibar Island and use surf, go all the way back to
Viridian City, put a water or grass Pokemon in front and head into the
gym, you know, the one that you couldn’t go into before.
Viridian City Gym
This is just like the game corner, with all the arrow pointing
things, go on the one to the north, and make your way to the 8th
trainer, and it’s……
Giovanni!!! Giovanni??? The leader of Team Rocket? A team of grass and water
Pokemon, will make this a short fight. Talk
to Giovanni after you beat he and receive the
Earth Badge and TM 27
(Fissure), he’ll disband Team Rocket and dedicate his studies to the
world of Pokemon……
We’ve been on this route before, and um, oh no, not again
You think he’d learned his lesson already, but noooooo. Use
this to test your team for the Elite Four, if this match is easy you
are in good shape!
If you have all 8 badges, you’ll get to an entrance at the end,
this is victory road.
You’ll find Moltres, among Machokes and Marowaks, in the range of
Lv40-Lv50. Push boulders onto the little round things to open up
passages. To reach Moltres, you’ll have to get to the third floor
first, then you will have to go down through the ladder at the
northwestern corner of the 3rd floor. To get out, you’ll
first have to move a boulder onto the switch at the southern part of
the second floor, then go up the stairs on the right and keep on going
This guy is as easy as Zapdos, get his energy down to a minimum and
throw ultra balls at it.
This is the last place to heal your pokemon and to stock up on
items. Save before you enter the door to the elite 4. There is no
going back after you enter.
