Here's an up to date walkthru for pokemon
You start out the game by setting the game's internal clock. After that Oak will
explain the world of Pokémon
again and then you will get to choose your name.
Finally you'll start out in your room, head downstairs to
have a talk with your mom. She'll give you your PokéGear. She'll also ask what day
it is, and whether or not it is Daylight Savings Time or not. After that she will give you
the option of where she'll keep some of your money for you when you win battles. That way,
just in case you "white out" (it's not black out anymore for some reason) you'll
still have money at your house. Occasionally throughout the game, your mom will use some
of the money she keeps to buy things for you which you can thing take out of your Computer
anywhere in the game.
Professor Elm's Lab - Choose Your Pokémon
After all that, head outside and go to the large building on the left. Once inside you'll
meet the Pokémon Professor of the game. His name is Professor Elm and after a talk, he
will let you choose one of three starting Pokémon:
Chikorita the Grass Pokémon
Cyndaquil the Fire Pokémon
Totodile the Water Pokémon
After choosing your starter Pokémon Elm will exchange
Phone numbers, and tell you that the machine in the corner heals Pokémon. He'll also tell
you to go find his friend, Mr. Pokémon.
Next head outside and start exploring.
About in the middle of Route 29 on Tuesdays, there is a girl named Tuscany that will show
up. She has brothers and sisters who will also show up on certain days during the week
(Monica of Monday, Wesley of Wednesday, Arthur of Thursday, Frieda of Friday, Santos of
Saturday, and Sunny of Sunday). Throughout the Walkthru I will point them out to you. They
give you special items that you can attach to your Pokémon that increase a certain attack
depending on the item. Tuscany will give you a Pink Bow which increases Normal attacks.
Next you'll want to try to find Mr. Pokémon. You'll pass through a town called
Cherrygrove (Yoshino) City to get to him. When you first enter Cherrygrove (Yoshino) City
talk to the old man below you. He will show you the town and then give you a Map card for
Mr. Pokémon & Professor Oak
You'll eventually find Mr. Pokémon's house since one of the paths is blocked by two
battling trainers. Mr. Pokémon will introduce himself and then Professor Oak will talk to
you and give you a high-tech version of the Pokédex. Oak then leaves to go do his very
popular radio show. You'll take a rest, and when you exit the building Elm calls you and
tells you to come back to New Bark (Wakaba) Town, something has happened! These plants
Someone has stolen one of Elm's Pokémon, and just your luck it's the one that has the
advantage over yours. Well, it looks like you just found your new rival.
Back To New Bark Town
Head back and talk with Professor Elm to see what was going on. You'll then name your
On your way out of the Lab, the Scientist at the bottom will give you 5 Pokéballs.
When you exit the city a guy named Dude will want to show you how to use your new
Pokéballs to catch Pokémon.
After battling and capturing some of the new and old Pokémon you'll be ready to take on
the local gym leader, Falkner. He uses bird Pokémon and is not difficult to defeat.
Once you beat Falkner he will give you the Zephyr Badge. The Zephyr Badge raises your
Pokémon's attack power. It will allow you to use Flash anytime. Falkner also gives you

Togepi - Violet (Kikyou) City PokéCenter
After defeating Falkner, Professor Elm will call you and tell you that they have found out
something about he Mysterious Egg you gave to him earlier. A Scientist will show up in the
Violet (Kikyou) City PokéCenter. Talk to him and he will give you the Pokémon Egg (you
must have one slot open for it in your Pokémon lineup.)
The Egg will hatch after you walk so many steps and turn into Togepi. There is a man
blocking the most southern exit of this town and if you don't get Togepi you can't get
There's also a house in Violet that you can trade a Bellsprout for an Onix. The level will
depend on what level your Bellsprout is because whenever you trade a Pokémon to a person
in the game, their Pokémon will be the same level as yours.
In Violet (Kikyou) City head north to find the Sprout Tower. You'll encounter Sages with
Bellsprout and the occasional Hoothoot. At the top your Rival beats the head Sage and runs
off after talking to you. Defeat the Sage and he will give you HM05, Flash.

Next you can head west of Violet (Kikyou) City and run into a cave entrance. Inside will
be a puzzle that you have to put together.
Once you discover it was Kabuto, the floor will drop out and down you will fall into the
cave below. (If nothing happens, you put the puzzle together wrong) Inside are a bunch of
Pokémon called Unown. They have no gender, but they do have many different shapes. Don't
get confused though, they all have the same Pokédex entry.
To unlock more shapes you will have to surf, strength, break rocks, towards the 3 other
entrances to the cave (Like the Kabuto one where there is a puzzle to solve.) You can find
them by surfing on the Lower Level of Union Cave. You need Strength to get two of them.
This Scientist will give you the upgrade After you solve all the puzzles go into the cave
and catch 3 different Unown shapes.
Exit the cave and a Scientist will upgrade your Pokédex for you. Now after you catch a
Annon shape it will be recorded under here and you can take a look to see which ones you
have by pressing Select while in the Pokédex and then choosing the last option.
After collecting all 26 Unown, talk to the scientist again and he will let you print out
your Unown shapes.
My Collection of 26 Unown Shapes. When looking in this part of the Pokédex you will
notice that every Unown make up a different letter of the English Alphabet. And in the box
below the picture it has an English word made up of Unown letters. Here are the words
found after each letter:

K KEEP X XXXXX
L LAUGH Y YIELD
M MAKE Z ZOOM
Next you'll encounter a lone PokéCenter in Route 32. Inside is a Fishing Guru, talk to
him and you'll get yourself an Old Fishing rod.
Continue on and you'll pass through a cave with Trainers and rock Pokémon inside. If you
look on Friday nights you can find Lapras deep within the cave if you have Surf.
Click here for a map of Union Cave.
TM 39 - Swift
Inside Union Cave you can find TM 39, Swift. It's on the Lower Level of Union Cave. You
don't need Surf, Cut, or any other HM to get to it.
TM 05 - Roar
After getting Cut later in Ilex Forest, come back and talk to this guy. He'll give you TM
05 just for talking to him.
On Friday, right above the PokéCenter, "Frieda Friday" will appear. All
throughout the game are scattered her brothers and sisters, and they will only appear on
certain days. They will give you items that you can attach to your Pokémon to make their
After exiting the tunnel you'll find Team Rocket guarding a well and the local Gym. Well
it seems that Team Rocket has kidnapped all the Slowpokes from the town.
First you'll need to talk to Kurt in the house right above the Gym. He'll move the Rocket
member guarding the well. Next it's your turn to defeat the Rocket members. Once
defeated, the Gym will open and you'll be able to fight Bugsy.
King's Rock - TM 18 (Rain Dance)
Later after you get HM 04, Strength, return to Slowpoke Well and go to the Lower Level.
Here you'll find the King's Rock (which will evolve Slowpoke or Poliwhirl when you attach
it to them and trade them to another Game Boy.) You can also find TM 18, Rain Dance.
Kurt - Apricorns
After defeating the Rocket members in the well, Kurt will take you back to his house and
give you a Lure Ball. Lure Balls are used to catch Pokémon hooked by a Rod (from
fishing). He'll also make more special Pokéballs from Apricorns that you can get from
plants scattered throughout the Johto region.
For example, the plant behind his house will give you White Apricorns, and they are then
made into a Fast Ball. Fast Balls are used to catch fast Pokémon.
Azalea Gym - Hive Badge
Bugsy uses 3 Bug Pokémon. So if you chose Cyndaquil as your starter Pokémon you will
really have the advantage, especially against Scyther.
Bugsy will give you the Hive Badge which lets all Pokémon up to level 30 obey you and
lets your Pokémon use Cut outside of battle. He also gives you TM49, Fury Cutter.

your rival right on the edge of Azalea Town, when you try to leave. Rival

Around this time in Azalea Town, Togepi's egg should hatch. You can head back all the way
to New Bark Town and show Professor Elm now. When you do, he'll give you the Everstone,
which won't allow a Pokémon to evolve if it is carried by that Pokémon.
HM01 - Cut
After you leave the previous city you'll enter a forest. You'll see a man standing near a
cut-able bush. Talk to him and he'll tell you that his boss's Farfetch'd got away.
After him you will see the Farfetch'd by itself. Chase it around until it reaches the man
by the cut-able bush. Talk to the new man and he will give you Cut.
Now Cut that cut-able bush to get passed the only one Blocking your path. A new feature in
Gold/Silver is that you can just go up to the bush, press A, and it will get cut down if
you have a Pokémon with Cut in your lineup. The same goes for Boulders, and that Tree
that will come up later.
TM02 - Headbutt
Inside the Ilex (Ubame) Forest Maze is a guy who will give you TM02, Headbutt. Headbutt
lets you shake the little trees that are everywhere in the game, sometimes revealing
I found an Exeggcute and #190 Aipom, that little monkey with a hand-like appendage on the
end of its tail. Beedrill was also found in Silver, Butterfree in Gold. Heracross is also
up in the trees, but is very rare.
TM12 - Sweet Scent
After cutting the bush that is right before the shrine dedicated to the Forest's protector
(aka Celebi), you'll wind through the Forest path until you come to a connecting gate.
Inside is a girl who will give you TM12, Sweet Scent. It will attract Pokémon to you
outside of battle.
Once you exit this place, you'll come to Route 34. Amongst the trainers is a
Just below Goldenrod (Kogane) City is a house with an old man and woman inside. Talk to
the man and he will take one of your Pokémon to level up and talk to the woman and she
will do the same. It will cost 100 bucks to take them out, and 100 bucks per level up.
To breed Pokémon you must give the old man a Male Pokémon and give the old woman a
Female Pokémon (or vice-versa) that have the same little icon or sprite. Or they must be
compatible at breeding. Check our Pokédex for breeding compatibility.
Then exit the building and go walk around for a little while. Come back when you see the
man standing outside with your two Pokémon. Talk to him and answer yes, he will give you
If you put in Pokémon of different #'s, for example Pidgey and Hoothoot, the resulting
egg will be the same species as the female Pokémon and with an Attack that the Male had.
Just think of the strange combinations...
Special Pre-Evolution Pokémon

kapoeraskool for this information.
Put in a Female Jynx and another Pokémon with the same sprite as Jynx.
And get Smoochum when you hatch the egg!
Note: Jynx can be found in the Ice Path. I bred a Jynx and my Kadabra together to get this
Smoochum. I've heard that Electabuzz works, I don't know about Magmar though.
Goldenrod (Kogane) City Gym - Plain Badge
Goldenrod (Kogane) City is pretty big. The local PokéMart is like the Celadon Department
Store. There's plenty to due, but let's get down to business. It's the Gym Leader's badge
you want, isn't it?
All the trainers use Normal Pokémon in the Goldenrod (Kogane) City Gym. Right before
Whitney there is a trainer who likes to use Jigglypuff, 3 to be exact. So you might want
to stop at the PokéCenter to wake up any Pokémon before taking on Whitney.
Whitney can be challenging. If you caught a Geodude or Onix earlier, now is the time it
would come in handy.
Whitney won't give you the Plain Badge at first because she will start crying. Talk to the
trainer below her then talk to Whitney again. She'll stop crying and give you the Plain
Badge. It will let your Pokémon use Strength outside of battle and it boosts your
Pokémon's Speed. She'll also give you TM45, Attract.

your ID is the same as the Lucky Radio Station's. If it is you can win prizes, like a
Coin Case / Free Bike
The Game Corner in Goldenrod (Kogane) City requires the coin case like in the previous
versions. In Goldenrod are two buildings that have an underground tunnel that connect to
each other. There are a few trainers there, but, if you find a PokéBall down there, it'll
contain the coin case. Now you can take your case and go gambling.
Also, there's a bike shop in Goldenrod, just talk to the guy and he'll give you a free
Also in the Underground Path is a Pokémon Salon. Depending on the day, you can groom your
Pokémon which will make it happy.
TM 21 or TM 27
In the Goldenrod City Department Store a lady on the 5th floor will give you a TM on
Sundays depending on how your Pokémon like you. If they like you she'll give you TM 27,
Return. It'll do more damage the more your Pokémon like you. However, if they don't
she'll give you TM 21, Frustration. It'll do more damage the more your Pokémon dislike
TM 04 - Rollout
Before the National Park (Route 35), there is a path through the grass you can take to
find TM 04, Rollout.
On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, the National Park holds a Bug Catching Tournament.
To enter you have to talk with one of the guys standing by the doors of either entrance
(North of Goldenrod is the first you come to). You can only take one Pokémon with you to
battle the wild Bug Pokémon, the rest will be held for you until the contest is over. The
contest is free, and you'll get 20 Park Balls to capture the Pokémon. However, if you
press Start at anytime, the round will end once you go back to playing.
Sunkern, Caterpie, Metapod, Butterfree, Weedle, Kakuna, Beedrill, Venonat, Pinsir, and
Scyther are the Pokémon that I've seen in there. What's weird is that you can find level
17 Caterpie and Weedle.
Whenever you catch more than one Pokémon in this contest, you'll be asked whether you
want to switch it with the first one you caught. If not, your Pokédex will still record
that you caught that Pokémon, you just won't get to keep it. You only get to keep one
Pokémon from the contest, so all others will mysteriously disappear.
To win the tournament you need to capture a high level Pokémon like Scyther since he is
worth a lot of points. The 1st place winner gets the Sun Stone.
Talk to the girl on the bench inside of the National Park and she'll give you Quick Claw.
Quick Claw will usually let the Pokémon carrying it, attack first in battle.
Route 26 - Sudowoodo the Wiggling Tree
After the third Gym there was a house right outside the gym. Inside the girl in red will
give you a SquirtBottle to sprinkle on the tree. Sudowoodo doesn't like water, so it'll
wake up and fight you. Remember there's only one, so be ready to catch it.
Next head directly to the right and talk to the fat guy that you come in contact with.
He'll give you TM08 which is called Rock Smash. This move will allow you to break certain
rocks later in the game so don't lose it.
Arthur of Thursday
On Thursdays in this area, right above where the fat guy is, Arthur will show up. He'll
give you Hard Stone, which will increase that strength of Rock attacks.
Deliver the Spearow - TM 50
After clearing out Sudowoodo this task will be simple. There's a guy wanting to deliver a
Spearow with Mail attached to a guy on Route 31. The guy with the Spearow is in the Route
Change gate right after Goldenrod City.
After getting TM 50, you can go back to the guy in the gate, and he'll give you a PP Up.
Bill - Time Capsule
After Sudowoodo you will reach Ecruteak (Enjyu) City. You'll probably want to stop at the
local PokéCenter to heal your Pokémon. When you do you'll meet Bill. He'll tell you he
just finished fixing his Time Capsule. The Time Capsule will let you transfer Pokémon
from older games, (Red, Blue, and Yellow) and transfer them to Gold or Silver. He tells
you that you can't have any new moves from Gold and Silver or Pokémon when trying to use
the machine. Then he'll leave and go back to Goldenrod City where he'll give you an Eevee
if you talk to him again.
After this, you can take on the local gym leader, Morty.
It would have been handy to have a Kadabra by now.
Ecruteak (Enjyu) City Gym - Fog Badge (#4)
There is a ghost floor surface which continually has you falling through, but to get to
the other side, you must walk directly forward in front of a gym trainer, then walk
directly left/right, but before reaching the edge, walk directly up in front of another
The Gym Leader uses all Ghost Pokémon so a Psychic like Kadabra or Drowzee will come in
Morty will give you the Fog Badge for winning. All Pokémon up to level 50 will obey you
now and you'll be able to use Surf outside of battle. He will also give you TM 30, Shadow

Two more things to do here. Inside the town there are five Kimono Girls dancing on the
stage. Each Kimono Girl has an Eevee evolution (two new ones, a Psychic one, and a Dark
one). If you defeat all five and talk to the man with the hat, he will give you HM03,
Dancing Kimono Girls
HM03 - Surf
Inside one of the houses, this guy will give you an Itemfinder.
Burned Tower - Rival / Legendary Beasts
Burned Tower Once you enter the Burned Tower your Rival will fight you. If you have that
Kadabra, now is the time to use it.
Once your Rival is defeated and leaves, it'll be time to explore the rest of the tower. I
was playing at night, so I fought some Rattata, the occasional Gastly, Koffing, and
If you taught TM08 to one of your Pokémon, now it is time to use it. (Remember TM08 is
given to you by the fat man that was looking at Sudowoodo - the wiggling tree.)
Fight the trainer and you can fall down the hole in the middle. Go up to the stone statues
and they will awaken, then scatter. These are the Three Legendary Beasts, Raikou
(electric type), Entei (fire type), and Suicune (water type). You may run into
them later on in the game (in the wild), so be prepared.
Next head west to Route 38.

Inside the Burned Tower you can find TM 20 by breaking the rock on the right side. Then
you have fall in the hole in the upper right hand corner. Then move a rock with strength
and TM 20, Endure, is yours.
Right in the corner of Route 38 and 39 is a Miltank farm. Unfortunately their prize
Miltank will not produce milk. If you give it enough Berries it'll get better. There is a
plant that gives Berries near the beginning of Route 38. If you talk to the owners after
that they'll give you TM13.
Not much else on Route 39, except a couple trainers with Pikachu.
Gym Leader is Missing
If you check out the local Gym your Rival will tell you that the gym is empty.
HM04 - Strength
Head to the house next to the PokéCenter. Talk to the Sailor on the right and he'll give
Right above the PokéCenter is a house with a Fishing Guru inside. Talk to him and answer
yes to his question and you'll get a Good Rod.
On Mondays look for Monica in Olivine City. Talk to her and she'll give you Sharp Beak.
When attached to a Pokémon it'll raise the power of Flying Attacks.
Jasmine Needs Medicine
Next head to the Lighthouse that is southeast in the town. Scale to the top battling
trainers and you'll find Jasmine. She'll ask that you get some medicine for her sick
Pokémon from a pharmacy in Cianwood.
Well, not much else to do, so let's surf to Cianwood City.
This hole will get you to the top
Where is Cianwood?
Cianwood (Taban) City can be reached by surfing from Olivine (Asagi) City. You'll
encounter a lot of Tentacool and Tentacruel on the way. Not to mention a few trainers.
Cianwood (Taban) City Gym - Storm Badge (#5)
Heal your Pokémon at the local Center then head off to fight the Gym Leader. To get
passed the stones blocking your way, you must press the stones on the ends up using
Strength. Then Press the middle stone to the left.
Again, Kadabra comes in handy.
Chuck will give you the Storm Badge for winning. Now Pokémon up to level 70 will obey you
and you can use Fly outside of battle. He will also give you TM 01, Dynamicpunch. It will
confuse the opponent if it hits.

You can also catch wild Shuckle by breaking the rocks on Cianwood. By breaking the rocks
there's always a chance a wild Pokémon will fight you.
There's a man in a house above the Gym that'll take a picture of one of your Pokémon and
then print it out on your Game Boy Printer.
Stop by this house to get the medicine Jasmine needs for her sick Pokémon before flying
back to Olivine.
After receiving the medicine from the guy in sunglasses on Cianwood, go back to Jasmine at
the top of the tower, give her the medicine, and she will go back to her gym.
Olivine (Asagi) City Gym - Mineral Badge (#6)
Jasmine's two Magnemites shouldn't give you that much trouble, especially if you grabbed a
Geodude earlier in the game.
The new steel type Pokémon, Steelix, is five levels higher, but you should still be able
to take it out. A Fire Pokémon can easily take all 3 of her Pokémon.
Once you beat Jasmine, the Mineral Badge is yours. It raises your Pokémon's Defense, and
she also gives you TM 23, Iron Tail.

Before entering the city, Sunny will be walking amongst 3 Berry Plants on the right side
of Route 37 on Sunday. Talk to Sunny and he will give you Magnet which increases the power
of Electric attacks.
Then exit east from the city using the Route Gate and you'll come across Mt. Mortar on
Deep inside Mt. Mortar is a trainer that will give you Tyrogue if you beat him. Make sure
you only bring 5 Pokémon with you or he will not give it to you. You also need Waterfall

TM40 - Defense Curl
Also inside near where the Dragon Scale is, you'll find TM 40, Defense Curl... Not really
worth your time if you ask me.
There are a group of three plants that give you Apricorns right outside the middle
entrance of Mt. Mortar. You need a Pokemon with Cut with you to get to them. The one on
the left gives you a Pink Apricorn, the middle a Green Apricorn, and the right a Yellow
Now head East, and you'll come right to Mahogany Town.
TM 10 - Hidden Power
There's a winding path off to the left of the lake with a lot of bushes that require Cut
to get passed. There's a hut at the very top and for your trouble the man inside will give
you TM 10, Hidden Power.
Wesley of Wednesday
Also up near the house where you get TM 10 will be Wesley on Wednesday. Talk to him to get
The Mahogany (Choju) Town Gym is being blocked by a Team Rocket member so you'll have to
find something else to do first.
Head north battling trainers and new Pokémon until you reach a lake with a level 30 Red
Gyarados in it. Surf out to the middle and fight it. There's only one, so you better catch
After capturing/defeating it, you'll get a Red Scale. You can trade this scale for an
Exp.Share from Mr.Pokémon.
After catching the Red Gyarados you'll see Lance standing by a sign. Talk to him and he
will tell you he needs help, Mahogany Town has a secret Rocket Hideout that is
broadcasting strange radio signals making the Magikarp in the lake evolve into Gyarados.
Answer yes and he'll fly off. Head back to Mahogany Town.
TM 36 - Sludge Bomb
On your way back you can go through a gate house with a Red roof. Watch out! There's
Rockets inside. They'll steal your money, so hop over the ledges to get back.
However, later when you get rid of Team Rocket, come back to get TM 36 from the guy
Mahogany (Choju) Town "Store"
If you head to the middle of the town where a guy is selling things, you'll find Lance
inside. He'll show you the secret door to Team Rocket's Hideout.
Make sure your Pokémon are strong, a lot of Team Rocket members will fight you in here.
Team Rocket Hideout - Level 1
This map looks peaceful, right? WRONG. Every time you pass one of the Statues, 2 Rocket
Grunts will come and fight you. They say that there's a camera in the Statues, and the
only way to turn them off is to hit the switch.
The switch is on that lone computer which you can get to after defeating the Scientist in
Team Rocket Hideout - Level 2
Lance will heal your Pokémon when you talk to him on the 2nd level. He'll go ahead of
you. Beat the 2 rocket members and go down the stairs.
Team Rocket Hideout - Level 3
Here Lance will talk to you again. He says that to unlock the doors on this level you need
to get 2 passwords from the Rocket members. The two members that have the passwords are on
this level. The first one is the girl Rocket, facing the computer. Talk to her after you
battle her and she'll give you her password. The other is the Rocket near the 2
Pokéballs. After battling him talk to him and he'll give you his password. Follow the
stairs until you get to the locked door. Your Rival will come to talk to you but he won't
Unlock the door and fight the Rocket Executive. After he leaves, talk to the Murkrow and
it'll give you the final password, "Hail Giovanni." Then head back to the 2nd
Floor and unlock the 2nd locked door.
Deactivate the Radio Signal
After unlocking the door, 2 Rocket Executives will come and gang up on you. Luckily Lance
comes and battles one of them, while you battle the other. After that is over, Lance tells
you that the radio signal needs to be stopped. Since there is no switch, you must battle
the Electrode and either catch them, or make them faint.
After defeating the Electrode, Lance will thank you and give you HM06, Whirlpool.
Whirlpool lets you get passed rough waters.
Mahogany (Choju) Town Gym - Glacier Badge (#7)
Pryce uses Ice Pokémon. If you picked up a Magmar from earlier, he'd be useful right
around now. If not, an electric attack will take care of Seel and Dewgong.
After beating Pryce, you'll get the Glacier Badge. This badge will raise your Pokémon's
Special and it'll let you use Whirlpool outside of battles. He'll also give you TM16, Icy

Team Rocket Has Taken Over Goldenrod City
Before heading on, you'll have to backtrack. Professor Elm calls you to tell you Goldenrod
(Kogane) City's Radio broadcasts seemed to be talking a lot about Team Rocket. He wants
you to head to Goldenrod to check things out.
Head back to Goldenrod (Kogane) City for more Rocket fun.
Team Rocket - Radio Tower
The other floors of the Radio Tower that were not accessible before, now are.
Unfortunately these floors are reeking of Rocket.
The first part of this chore is easy enough. Just fight all the Rocket's and make it up to
the top. You'll see a locked door on the third floor, but this will be opened later.
Beat the Rocket Executive on the top floor who was impersonating as the Director. He'll
give you a key that will unlock the blue door to the Underground Warehouse, which you can
reach by going into the Underground Tunnel in Goldenrod City.
Battle with Rival
Hey look, your Rival was following you and now wants to fight. Sneasel is one of those new

Next you will have to press switches to open doors and remove walls. To get to the Female
Rocket leader you must push the switches in this order: the Left switch (#3), then Middle
(#2), then the Right one (#1).
Save The Director
You'll encounter more Rocket Grunts until you finally encounter the Director of the Radio
Station. He'll give you a Card Key that'll unlock the 3rd Floor shutter that was locked
before in the Radio Station.
Go back to the Radio Station and unlock the door. Beat the rest of the Rockets including
the male and female Rocket Executives.
Get the Rainbow or Silver Wing
After defeating the Rocket Executives, the Director will come and thank you. He'll also
give you a special Wing (Silver version: Silver Wing, Gold Version: Rainbow Wing). These
wings will let you get Ho-oh (Rainbow Wing - Gold) and Lugia (Silver Wing - Silver).
More Free Gifts
Before exiting the Radio Tower, go around and talk with the people pictured. They will
give you something for saving the Radio Tower.
Don't forget to stop by this house in Goldenrod (Kogane) City to get your own
complimentary Eevee from Bill. Have a slot open for it though or you won't be able to get
Next head back to Mahogany (Choju) Town and enter the Ice Path.
The Ice Path shouldn't be too hard to get through. If you are stuck, the Map has red
arrows that'll tell you where you need to go.
You'll find some new Pokémon in here, a small mammoth like thing called Swinub. There's
also a shy bird called Delibird in the Silver version.
HM07 - Waterfall
You can find the last HM, HM07 in the Ice Path. This HM lets you ride up waterfalls.
TM or HM, Be gone!
There is a guy in Blackthorn (Fusube) City that will erase TM's or HM's from your
Pokémon. Just talk to him and he will ask which move you want deleted.
This is very useful since the HM's in this game are used more regularly. So having all the
required Pokémon at the same time with these moves and having your normal fighting
Pokémon is hard to do. So eventually you'll give in and teach one of your good Pokémon
an HM. But don't worry you can delete it later!
(Krabby/Kingler can learn Cut, Surf, Strength, and Rock Smash, though)
Santos of Saturday
Hey it's Santos. Santos will give you Spell Tag after talking to him. Spell Tag will
increase the power of Ghost attacks.
Blackthorn (Fusube) City Gym - Rising Badge (#8)
Note: If you can't get into this gym because of a guy blocking it, you have forgotten to
beat something earlier in the game, most likely you have not been following this Walkthru
and came straight to this page. In that case, click the back button a few times down there
at the bottom of the page to see what you missed.
Before battling Clair there will be a small puzzle where you have to push 3 Rocks into
holes to make paths over the molten lava below. Not to mention trainers to fight.
But eventually you'll make it to Clair. Her Dragon Pokémon can be taken out with Ice
After defeating Clair, you won't get a badge. First you must surf behind the gym and enter
a cave called the Dragon's Den and get an item called the Dragon Fang.

Dragon's Den - Getting the Badge from Clair
Inside you must surf around. You may encounter a Dratini every once and awhile. You'll
have to get passed a whirlpool, so bring along your Pokémon that has HM06 equipped. Once
you find the lone Pokéball and pick it up, Clair will come along and give you the Rising
Badge. Now all Pokémon will obey you and you'll be able to use Waterfall outside of
battle. She'll also give you TM24, Dragonbreath.
Once you exit the Dragon's Den, Professor Elm will tell you he's got something for you. So
go back to New Bark (Wakaba) Town and talk to him.
When you get back in New Bark (Wakaba) Town after beating all 8 Gym Leaders in Johto, talk
to Elm and he will give you the Master Ball!
Now that you have this, and the Rainbow Wing (Gold) or Silver Wing (Silver) from the Radio
Tower Director, you can go catch Ho-oh (Gold) or Lugia (Silver).
Ho-oh - Gold Version
Ho-oh on the rooftop. Ho-oh is really easy to find compared to Lugia. Go back to Ecruteak
(Enjyu) City and go into the northern house. Go in all the stairs and you'll eventually
come to a large tower. Go inside Tin Tower, and go to the top after the winding mazes and
teleport pads and you'll find Ho-oh.
You better save your game before fighting Ho-oh, because like Mewtwo, there is only one.
Try getting Ho-oh down to as little HP as possible, and put it to sleep. Ultra Balls
should do the trick.
Wild Ho-oh appears!
Click here for a Map to get to Ho-oh
Lugia - Silver Version
Lugia swimming Lugia can be found in Whirl Islands, south of Olivine City. You'll need a
Pokémon with Surf, one with Whirlpool, and one with Flash to get to Lugia.
Go to Olivine (Asagi) City and surf south trying to stay as far to the right as you can.
There is 4 entrances to the cave where Lugia is so if you follow the wall the first one
you come to is the one you need to enter.
Once inside go to the right and choose the top path when it comes to a fork. Now you'll
make your way to a waterfall, go down it, then surf up and you should find Lugia swimming
in the water.
Lugia is also level 40 and will give you 1257 experience points if you beat him. But
DON'T, what are you crazy or something!? Again, low HP, asleep, and ultra balls should do
Lugia wants to fight!
Click here for a Map to get to Lugia
Now head back to New Bark (Wakaba) Town and get ready to advance to the Pokémon League.
But first make sure you have a Pokémon with Surf and Waterfall. And heal all your
Pokémon in Elm's Lab.
Next it's time to surf east from New Bark (Wakaba) Town.
After surfing to the right of Wakaba Town, talk to the fat guy when you reach dry land.
He'll give you a new map card expansion that has the map of the original Pokémon World
from Red, Blue, & Yellow (Kanto).
Next you'll enter a cave that has a waterfall. Surf up it and then down the other side to
get out of the cave.
TM 37 - Sandstorm
Once you exit the cave you'll find a house. Inside an old lady will give you TM 37,
Sandstorm, for talking to her.
TM 22 - Solarbeam
On Route 27, you can Surf off the bridge to find this TM. Make sure you bring a Pokémon
with Whirlpool along to get it though because there is a whirlpool blocking the path to
get to it.
Route 27 and 26
Next you'll surf east some more and encounter more trainers when you reach land. There's
new Pokémon to catch and trainers to fight.
Before heading onwards, there is a house with a woman who will heal all your Pokémon for
Head north and you'll eventually reach Victory Road.
Eventually you'll make it to the "other half" of Victory Road. This half is much
more easier because there are no trainers and no puzzles.
But there are a lot of Pokémon in there that will give you grief if your Pokémon are not
leveled high enough. Graveler, Onix, Rhyhorn, Golbat, and Ursaring (Gold) or Dohphan
(Silver) are what you will find in here.
Strangely enough, when I was playing and leveling up my Pokémon before I battled the
Elite Four, I ran into a shining silver Rhyhorn. It, like all Shiny Pokémon, has a
constant DV of 10 for every stat (except for HP which has a DV of 0), making its total
stats be somewhat higher than regular Pokémon. Whenever it goes into battle it sparkles
like the Red Gyarados, and as you can see in its stats, it has 3 stars next to it's gender
like the Red Gyarados.
Click here for a map.
TM 26 - Earthquake
Inside Victory Road you can find TM 26, Earthquake. Right near the exit, head to the left
and fall down the hole you find to get to it.
Perfect Place to Level Up
The Pokémon in Victory Road are perfect for leveling up your Pokémon before the Elite
Four. The Graveler give you experience points in the 600's, Onix in the 500's, Rhyhorn in
the 600's, Golbat in the 700's, and Ursaring/Donphan in the 800's.
The best place to do this is at the end of Victory Road where the exit is because you can
go up to Indigo Plateau to heal your Pokémon. But before you reach the end your Rival
will battle you one more time.
Now when your Pokémon are about level 50 or so I think it is a good time to take on the
Elite Four at the Indigo Plateau.

Indigo PlateauJust like in Red, Blue, and Yellow, you will
fight the Elite Four and Pokémon League Champion one after another with chances to heal
your Pokémon in between. So I suggest before you go up the stairs to the first battle,
buy plenty of healing items and Revives, because you might need them, and they definitely
come inhandy.Will is your first match. He is a Psychic Trainer and uses a new Pokémon
called Xatu. It is a Psychic Bird that evolved from Natu. Electric attacks should do the
trick on everything except for Exeggutor. A fire Pokémon can take out Exeggutor

still are itching for more things to do? Here's what's next. Go talk to Professor Elm in
New Bark Town and get the SS Anne Ticket. Then head to Olivine (Asagi) City and enter the
SS Aqua through the passage that was previously blocked by a guy.SS AquaNow that you're on
the SS Aqua you can go around battling the gym trainers aboard. To get off you first have
to find a man's granddaughter who is with the captain of the ship.To get there you must
find a lazy Sailor who is in the room next to yours. Battle him so you can get past
another Sailor blocking your way later in the ship.Find the girl, and you'll be sent back
to the Grandpa's cabin. He'll give you Metal Coat for your troubles. Metal Coat increases
the strength of Steel attacks.Note: If you decide to go back onto the SS Aqua for a second
time you must go to your room and sleep in your bed if you ever want to get off the boat
again.Rare CandyGo talk to this guy and you'll get a Rare Candy to listen to his
ramblings.Vermilion City Gym - Lt. Surge Lt. Surge's GymYou won't have to do Surge's
stupid little trash can secret switch puzzle to get to him. You'll have to fight a couple
guys though, but you should do it anyways to gain more experience. Lt. Surge's Pokémon
shouldn't be too tough. Especially if you have a Ground Pokémon like Graveler or
Sandslash. Dig or another Ground type move should render his Pokémon helpless.After you
beat Surge, he'll give you his Thunder Badge which will increase your Pokémon's
Speed.Once in Saffron, there is a man named Mr. Psychic. Talk to him and he'll give you
the Psychic TM.Right next to the Saffron City Gym is the Dojo. The only thing interesting
in here is the Pokéball containing Focus Band. The Focus Band may prevent fainting.The
Saffron City Gym still has that teleporter puzzle that you must get through. Keep going to
the right or left and you'll eventually get to Sabrina after battling a couple Psychic
Trainers along the way. Sabrina's Psychic Pokémon are not too difficult to beat. If you
have a strong Electric Pokémon a couple strong Electric attacks to take out her Pokémon.
Strangely enough, Sabrina has a female Mr. Mime in her lineup. Apparently the English
translation to "Mr. Mime" wasn't a good idea because its Japanese name does not
have to deal with a gender.After you beat Sabrina grab her Marsh Badge and teleport your
way out of there.SabrinaPokémonLevelExp.Espeon461941Mr. Mime461339 Alakazam481912Prize:

East out of Cerulean City fighting trainers and wild Pokémon until you reach the end of
Route 9 where you can surf to the Power Plant. Go inside the Power Plant and talk to all
of the people in there. The large man is really upset...Once you try to exit, the Guard
will say that some shady character in Cerulean has been spotted and asks for your help.Now
go back to Cerulean City.Once in Cerulean, go inside Misty's Gym. The Rocket member who
stole the Machine Part will bump into you and exit as fast as he can. Go to the part
pictured and you'll find the missing Machine Part. Now go back to the Power Plant and give
the guy the missing Machine Part. He'll thank you and give you TM 07, Zap Cannon.Now head
back to Cerulean City again... or first you can do the following..Now that the Power Plant
is giving power to the Magnet Train, you can get a ticket for the Train which will
transfer you between the two worlds a lot faster than any other way. First, head back to
Saffron City and talk with the Mimic Girl. She'll tell you she lost one of her Poké
Dolls.Then head to Vermilion City to the house where you get the bike voucher in the
previous versions. Talk to the man above the Doll inside. He'll give you the Poké Doll
that you'll give to the Copycat Girl back in Saffron.Now go back to Saffron, and give her
the doll. She'll give you a Pass to the Magnet Train that will let you ride on it anytime
you want.The Train terminals are in Goldenrod (Kogane) City next to the Radio Tower, and
in Saffron City next to the gyms.Misty's Gym is empty, so take the path North across
Nugget Bridge towards where Bill's house was. You'll encounter 6 trainers who will
challenge you to a fight, and promise a prize for winning. Once you get done with 6,
there's a 7th... He said he wanted to fight you because you'd be tired... All he has a
Porygon anyway, so he's not tough.After beating them all, you'll get a Nugget as a
prize... And guess who it's from? Cooltrainer Kevin! ^_^ He'll challenge you to a battle
after he gives you the Nugget.Continue on toward where Bill was and you will find Misty
romancing with someone. She'll run off back to her Gym after you see her.Misty is still
using Water Pokémon of course. Her Starmie is the only Pokémon that makes a return, but
this time it is really beefed up. Misty's Pokémon can be easily taken out with a few
Electric attacks. The only problem though is Quagsire who is Wooper's evolution. These
strange creatures are impervious to Electric attacks since they are part Ground, so a
Grass attack should do the trick.After beating Misty she will give you her Cascade Badge
and you should be on your way.Head to Lavender Town by going East from Saffron City.
$4700When you're going South from Cerulean to get to Lavender, stop by the house that is
at the bottom of a bunch of ledges. Talk to the old lady inside and she'll give you the
Cleanse Tag. It will help keep wild Pokémon from attacking you.It looks like all souls
are rested now in the old Pokémon Tower so they converted it to a Radio Tower to stay
with the times. First things first, talk to the man facing the wall with a black hat. He
will thank you for turning the power back on at the Power Plant and give you a Expn Card
that will allow you to tune your Radio to all radio stations in Kanto. The important
station you will need later plays the PokéFlute noise.The Name Rater is still located in
Lavender like he was in Red, Blue, and Yellow. Also the PokéMart has moved to next to the
Pokémon Center for some reason... Oh well.Now the rest of the game you can do pretty much
however you want. But for sake of organization I'll continue on to Celadon City.But before
you go, if you head South of Lavender for a little bit, you'll come to a Fishing Guru's
house. He'll give you a Super Rod after you answer 'Yes' to his question. Also, if you go
down a little further, there's a Pokéball with a Nugget inside.Erika is still using her
Grass type Pokémon. Jumpluff looks like a Water type but it's still Grass, my Magmar made
sure of that. Erika is simple enough, Fire will disintegrate all of her Pokémon in a
couple hits. After you beat Erika and earn her Rainbow Badge and TM 19, Giga Drain. Now

Here is a tip sheet for pokemon yellow:
Pallet Town >Meet Professor Oak and get your pikachu, then you will fight your rival
for the first time. If you lose it's OK, but try your best to beat him. You'll get your pokedex after
bringing Oak his parcel from Viridian, then go to your rivals house and grab the map off
the wall, before you leave town to the north.
Route 1 >Your first foray into the tall grass! Talk to the people you find along the
way for a free item and continue north Until you reach Viridian city.
Viridian City >You can heal your pokemon at the pokemon center, then go to the pokemart
and pick up a package and take it back to Pr Oak. Deliver it to him and return to the
pokemart to buy items, finally. Grab whatever you need (Pokeballs would be good to start)
and head north to Route 2.
Route 2 >Now you can start capturing pokemon! Give it a try! There's lots of battles
here and in Viridian Forest, so don't be afraid to go back to the city and heal up when
you need to.
Viridian Forest >There's lots of good items here, so get as many as you can.
Pewter City >Time to fight your first member of the Pokemon League- a familiar face to
any one who watches the Pokemon Cartoon. Heal your pokemon at the Pokecenter, stock up at
the Pokemart and take him on. I f you lose you need more training. Head back to Route 2
and get your pokemons levels up before challenging him again. Once you defeat him, you'll
get TM 34 and the Boulder Badge, and you'll be able to move on east to Route 3.
Route 3 >Lots of trainers to fight on your way to the entrance of Mount Moon. Be sure
to drop off at the pokecenter close to the mouth of the cave to heal before heading inside
Mt. Moon >Put Pikachu at the front of your party; his electric shocks will take out
those Zubats quickly, sometimes even in one hit. Fight your way through this dungeon, and
when you come to the fossils you can only grab one of them; just be sure to remember which
one you grab. Later in the game it will become a pokemon, but you'll have to start a new
game or trade with a friend to get the other Pokemon from the fossil you didn't choose.
You will also have your first encounter with Team Rocket just after you grab your fossil-
be ready for them. They have Meowth, Koffing and Ekans, just like in the cartoon!
Route 4 >Not much to say here; head east for Cerulean City.
Cerulean City >Don't miss the girl in a house close to the pokemon center; she will
give you a Bulbasaur! Once your ready, head to the gym and take Misty and her water
pokemon with your pikachu! Beat her and the Cascade Badge a [Pikachu] nd TM 11 are yours,
you can't get a bike at the bike shop just yet. Remember where it is since you'll be back
soon. The only way you can exit (For Now) is to the north up to route 24.
Route 24 >Fight your way past all the trainers on the bridge and it's your Rival again!
Beat him up and don't miss getting a Charmander from the guy in the upper-left corner of
this route, before heading, right and down Route 25.
Route 25 >Lots of trainers here, you may need to head back to the city a few times to
heal up. When you finally make it past all of them you'll find Bill's House. Talk to him
(notice pikachus surprised expression?) and activate the computer when he asks you to.
Talk to him again now that he's human and he'll give you a ticket tboard the SS Anne!
Cool! Now head back to Cerulean City and you can pass through that house in the upper
right of the city that was blocked before. Head South to Route 5.
Route 5 >If you want, you can go down the center of this route to find the pokemon Day
Care Center, where you can leave your pokemon to be slowly trained for you, but it will
grow up weak so it's not recommended. You should capture an Abra here before you leave if
you can though.
Route 6 >When you emerge at Route 6 you can only go two directions , north or south.
You can't go through the gate to the north yet, so go south past a few trainers to
Vermilion City >Explore the town fully before you do anything else. You will get a Bike
Coupon and a Fishing Rod just for chatting a couple of people up, and print out your
pokemon on your Game Boy Printer at the Pokemon Club! Another lady wants to give you here
Squirtal, but she isn't quite sure yet. Just be patient, you'll get her Squirtal from here
soon enough. Buy plenty of items and head to the SS Anne down the dock south of town.
There are a lot of items on board the SS Anne, as well a quite a few rich pokemon
trainers, so this is a good time to fight as much as you can. You'll face your Rival again
on the second floor before you meet the Captain and get HM 01 from him- be careful though,
once you leave the ship with HM 01 you can never come back!
Vermilion City (AGAIN) >Back in Vermilion City you can use HM 01 on one of your pokemon
to teach them the CUT ability. Now take out that tree next to the gym and you can get in
to face Lt. Surge! Search all the trash cans to find the first switch, then once you find
it, save your game. Try any trash can next to it- if there isn't another switch reset your
game and try another trash can next to the first one. Keep doing this until you find the
second switch and the door opens. Beat Lt. Surge for the Thunder Badge and TM 24. Now you
can go talk to the lady in the middle of the city and she will give you Squirtal!
Route 11 >There's s couple of things you can get in the building at the end of this
route, but probably not yet. If you want you can fight a couple of trainers, but head into
Diglett's cave (with your pokemon who has the CUT ability) when you are ready to move on.
Diglett's Cave >Lots of Digletts and a few Dugtrios are all that stand between you and
the end of this long wandering cave.
Route 2/Viridian City/Pewter City (Again) >Lots of little errands to do now. Back at
Route 2 now on the other side of it that you couldn't reach before, find one of Pr. Oak's
helpers in the south building and get HM 05 as long as you have captures 10 pokemon. Now
retrace your steps through Viridian City and up to Pewter City, where you can now get into
the research lab at the top since you have the CUT ability. Get the Old Amber there and
continue to Cerulean City, get your Bike and now you can head east to Route 9.
Route 9 >Fight your way through the trainers here and you'll find a Pokecenter close to
the entrance of the Rock Tunnel. Heal Up and save and remember this spot; there is an
optional area to the south know as The Power Plant south of this route once you have the
SURF ability. You'll want to come back to here later, for now head into the Rock Tunnel.
Rock Tunnel >Use HM 05 on one of your pokemon to give them the FLASH ability, then use
FLASH to see your way through this cave. It's not to hard to find your way through this
tunnel but there are some very tough opponents here, so be careful and remember the
Pokecenter is just outside the entrance if you need help.
Route 10 >One of the shortest routes in the game. If you are hurt just try to avoid the
other trainers and you'll make it to Lavender Town in no time. Lavender Town Don't miss
the Pokemart here for a few new items, but there isn't much else to do here just yet. You
won't get far in the Pokemon Tower Dungeon here without the special item you don't have
yet, so you'll have to just skip it now and go west to Route 8.
Route 8 >You can't use the gate all the way to the left of this route yet, so go to the
building just above it to find the underground path to Route 7.
Route 7 >Another really tiny route. Just head west into Celadon City.
Celadon City >Lots and Lots of different things to do here. There's the giant
department store with several floors of item shops, many stocking special trinkets you
can't find any where else. Make sure you buy a couple of the drinks on the top floor, so
you can give them to those thirsty gate guards that keep stopping you. If you want to play
slot at the Game Corner, find the guy in the Upper-Left corner of the bar in the row of
buildings below the Game Corner. He will give you a Coin Case, and now you can play. Visit
the building next to the game corner and you will find a nice array of some very rare
pokemon for sale-but you will have to win a lot at the game corner or change a lot of
money at the game corner counter to be able to buy them. Up at the top of the city, find a
hole in a row of bushes and enter into the back of the building there. Follow the stairs
up and you will find the incredible Pokemon Eevee on a table at the top. If you think
you're ready you can take on the Pokemon Gym trainer Erika to get the Rainbow Badge and TM
21. Explore around and talk to everyone you can, then when your ready for the next
Giovonni challenge, talk to the man by the poster at the top of the game corner. After you
defeat him, check the poster behind where he was standing to flip the switch to open the
door that leads to the entrance of the Game Corner Dungeon.
Game Corner Dungeon >Make your way down to the fourth and bottom floor. Fight the Team
Rocket member at the top of the floor , and when you beat him an item will appear. on the
floor next to him. That's the lift key- grab it and head back up to the elevator on the
second floor and take it down to the fourth floor. You'll face Team Rocket again, then
beat Giovonni and you'll get the Silph Scope. Now you can see the ghost pokemon in the
Pokemon Tower back in Lavender Town, so head back there now.
Lavender Town (Pokemon Tower) >Now time to take on the pokemon on the Pokemon Tower
Again. Make sure your pokemon are ready to take on the Ghost Type pokemon before you head
in or you'll be in serious trouble. Work your way across the tower from one edge to the
other and remember that the patch in the middle of level 5 will heal all your pokemon; if
you can make it there you can use it as a mini Pokecenter. First you'll fight your Rival
on the way up, then you'll have to face Team Rocket again at the top. Beat them and rescue
old man Fuji- he'll give you the pokemon flute to show his gratitude. Now you can wake up
those Snorlax that have been blocking routes 12 and 16!
>You can either go two ways now- down south through Route 12 or all the way over
through Route 16. We'll take Route 12 now, and take the Route 16 option afterward.
Route 12 >Don't miss the small cabin here for a new Fishing Rod, and use the Pokemon
Flute to wake the Snorlax blocking the road. If you can't capture it, don't worry. You'll
have another chance on Route 16.
Routes 13, 14, and 15 >Not much to say. Travel to the end to Fuchsia City.
Route 16 (Optional way to Fuchsia, but HM 02 is located here) >Cut the plant
immediately once you come in the route and head west, through the Gate House, to find a
small cabin and a women who will give you HM 02- the ability to FLY! Also you'll have to
wake the Snorlax with the Pokemon Flute in order to pass. Just be sure to capture Snorlax
here or at Route 12.
Route 17 and 18 >Not much to say. Travel to the end to Fuchsia City.
Fuchsia City >Either route you take you'll eventually end up at Fuchsia City. Check at
the Safari Zone to the north of town. You can catch all kinds of rare pokemon here, but
some of them like to run away so patience is the key. Try to make it to the hut at the end
of the safari zone to find a man who will give you HM 03 the ability to SURF! Also make
sure you find the Gold Teeth item in the safari zone. Bring them to their owner in the
house in the lower-right corner of town and he'll give you HM 04, which will let you push
rocks(STRENGTH). Beat the local gym trainer Koga to get the Soul Badge and then you'll
want to FLY or walk all the way back to Saffron City (that place in between Routes 7 and
Saffron City >You'll notice that there are two gyms in this town. The one on the left
you can take any time, but to enter the right one you'll have to beat Giovonni in the
Silph Co.- but we'll get to that in a minute. Beat the trainers in the left gym to get
your choice of two fighting pokemon- Hitmonchan or Hitmonlee. Now, find the largest
building in the canter of town to challenge Giovonni located in the heart of the Silph Co.
Silph Co. >This area is HUGE, but if you do everything right you can through it pretty
quick and without too much fighting. First go to the fifth floor and get the card key
item. Now go back to the third floor and take the teleporter pad through the first door to
the left (use the card key). Next you'll fight your rival and get Lapras from the guy
standing there, then hop on the next teleporter pad to head to the top floor, where you'll
take on Team Rocket again, and then Giovonni! Once he's beaten, talk to the man behind the
desk to receive the Master Ball. (Do not use it Save it for Mewtwo in the Unknown Dungeon)
Saffron City (Gym) >Now that you've beaten the Silph Co. you can enter the right gym
and take on Sabrina. Make your way through the teleporter pads until you find her, then
defeat her to gain the Marsh Badge and TM 46. You've done everything you can in Saffron
City now, so head back to Fuchsia City and bring pokemon with SURF and STRENGTH abilities
south of Fuchsia down the watery Route 19.
Route 19 >Keep going until you reach the entrance to Seafoam Island.
Seafoam Island >This is where your pokemon with the STRENGTH ability is the key. Push
both rocks you find on level 1 down the holes by them and fall through the hole yourself
to level 2. Push both rocks through both holes again here, and again on level 3. Now you
can fall down to level 4 without getting washed away. You could exit if you wanted, but if
you want to get Articuno, head to the lowest-left corner of level 4 where there are some
more rocks. Push them carefully in order so you don't get stuck, and so one rock can be
pushed down through each of the two holes here. Fall down after them to level 5 and now
swim north to find Articuno. He's tough to catch and this is your only chance, so make
sure you save before you take him on.
Route 20 >A short ways to Cinnabar Island. Just swim along until you reach the island.
Cinnabar Island >There's lots of people to talk to in this small town, so make sure you
wander around. Check out where you leave your fossil or old amber to come back later and
have it be a live pokemon! The gym is locked for now, so head to the Pokemon Mansion in
the upper left of the island to get the key.
Pokemon Mansion >Another big dungeon that you can sail through if you know the right
way. Head strait up the stairs to the third floor and hit the switch on the statue there.
Now fall off the left of the two ledges on the bottom of that level and you're back on the
first floor. Down to the basement, where there's another statue in the small room to the
left. Hit it and take the hallway around to the top, where you'll find another statue
switch. Hit it and continue until you find the secret key. Backtrack, hitting the switches
in opposite order and back up the stairs to the exit.
Cinnabar Island (Gym) >This gym gives you the chance to avoid trainer battles before
the gym leader by answering pokemon trivia questions. Answer carefully, many of them sound
easy but are trick questions! If you answer wrong you fight a trainer. Once you make your
way to Blain, beat him for the Volcano Badge and TM 38. Only one more gym to go.
Route 21 >Swim to the end. Nothing else to say.
Viridian City (Gym) >Make your way back to Viridian City for the very last gym in the
game and your final showdown with Giovonni. You'll need to lead one trainer out from his
starting place in this gym in order pass by. Once you do you'll want to take the passage
to the right as you enter the gym, around the top and to face Giovonni. Beat him for the
Earth Badge and TM 22, then exit west out of Viridian down to Route 22.
Route 22 >After another battle with your rival, head up to Route 23.
Route 23 >If you haven't beaten all the gym trainers and gotten all the badges you'll
have to go back no and get them to pass now. Also make sure you have a pokemon with the
SURF ability since much of this route is made up of water, and you'll need the STRENGTH
ability for the next dungeon, Victory Road.
Victory Road >On the first floor, work the first rock you see over to the right and on
the trigger switch there. Continue up to level 2 by a ladder in the upper-left corner.
Move the rock just below where you come up on level 2 and onto another switch in the
corner. Follow the curving path and take the first ladder you can up to level 3. Now take
that rock just abouve you on level 3 all the way to the left and carefully manuver it to
the switch there. Take the ladder close by back down to level 2 where you will find
Moltres, Capture him and back on to level 3, take the raised platform around to the bottom
half of the level. Push the rock down the hole right next to it and fall down after it.
Now take that same rock and push it left over the final switch, you can follow the last
set of latters out of the dungeon!
Indigo Plateau >One last stop before final confrontation. Stock up on healing items and
choose your best pokemon for the battle ahead. You'll be facing enemies of all types, so
plan accordingly. After four battles with the strongest trainers you've faced yet, you'll
face your rival one last item. (I bet you saw that coming) Beat him and you are the new
