+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~+

Begin your game. Watch the cool new opening video and then start a new game.
Scroll through the help menus and listen to Professor Oak, the man who appears
on your screen, talk and talk and talk until he is finally finished. There,
you'll name your character. After choosing a name, he will ask if you are sure
that's your name like you have a mental problem. Choose the top option(Yes)
and be on your way. Next, you have to name your rival who you have known for
a long time, but remained nameless until now. Name him too and say that you're
sure once again(top option). I named my rival Cloud because he looks so much
like the Cloud from FFVII. OK, let's begin our adventure now.

After you minimize and appear in your room, go to the top left and press A on
the PC. Choose the top option, Withdraw, and press A again on the item
(Potion). Close the menu and walk downstairs. Talk to you mom and leave your
house through the rectangular mat. Outside, talk to as many people as you
please. Visit houses and get used to controls. Now, since there's nothing to
do, exit the town by walking to the top above.

Wait, as you exit, Professor Oak stops you! He says some stuff about Pokemon,
and then asks you to follow him. Do so and he will lead you towards his
laboratory. Chat with him for a while and rival will ask what took him so
long. Chat some more and he will ask you to choose a Pokemon on the table to
the right.

Now, this is the first decision that will make a huge difference in the game.
Will you choose Bulbasaur the Grass type, Charmander the Fire type, or
Squirtle, the Water type?

STARTER SYNOPSIS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, Bulbasaur is a dual type of Grass and Poison and is an awesome choice
for beginners since it absolutely pwns the first few gyms. He is not to bad
in a final team either. You get to teach him Frenzy Plant later. Bulbasaur can
take many Special hits and easily can last its weaknesses. Awesome annoyer in
competitive battles.

---

Squirtle is a pure Water type. It can take many hits of both physical and
special attacks. Its attacking stats aren't too bad, and speed is a little on
the slow side. You can teach it Hydro Cannon later. It can be a very good
utility Pokemon later in the game. If you like to be safe rather than sorry,
here's your Pokemon.

---

Charmander is a Fire type, perhaps one of the best in the game. It has low
defenses, but high offenses and speed which is extremely handy for sweeping.
It is the best starter out of all 3(actually, one of the best Fire types in
the entire game). No, this is not an opinion, this is a fact. It can learn
very powerful moves by breeding and is seen VERY often on the bots. It evolves
into a dual type, Fire/Flying. If pure power is what you're looking for, then
choose Charmander. However, it is a bit more difficult to progress through the
game with him.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In case you are wondering, I chose Bulbasaur because that's who I chose in the
original Red version. You however, can choose whomever you like. Rival will
also choose one, always one strong against your type.

Once your tough decision is over(OK, maybe as tough as choosing pizza
toppings), start to exit the lab. Wait! (Rival song remix starts) rival
challenges you! Time to start your first battle!

RIVAL BATTLE 1
                   <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
OPPONENT'S POKEMON:
Bulbasaur Lineup

|Pokemon       | Level |

|Bulbasaur     |   5   |

Squirtle Lineup

|Squirtle      |   5   |
----------------------

He should be easy enough. Professor Oak will be coaching you and teaching you
the controls throughout the battle and whatever you do. Remember that Potion
that you got from your room? Now is the time to use it, if you are in need.
If you lose, you don't get a Game Over or lose half your money since it's only
practice, so don't worry if you forgot the Potion. It's better to win though
to get some money for later on.

You should have gotten plenty of money from that battle, some which you will
have to spend later. Anyway, rival leaves whether you beat him or not and your
game will continue. Head out of the lab and up and out of Pallet Town.

You are not able to catch Pokemon yet, so just battle to get experience. Run
if you're running low on health. As you walk up the route, you should see a
man. Talk to him to get a free Potion. Afterwards, you will get to the
beautiful Viridian City.

Feel free to explore your new surroundings, but don't go outside the town.
Heal in the Pokemon Center and when you're done exploring, hit the Pokemon
Mart, or did you already do that? Well, either way, you get a package for Oak.
So, time to back to Pallet Town. You have the option of jumping over the
ledges this time around, but I don't recommend it since you still need some
experience. Now, go to Professor Oak at Pallet Town.

At his laboratory, you will see *GASP*! Rival! But don't worry, no battle this
time, he just came because Oak told him he wanted to say something to both of
you. Skip his blabbering and get your prize - the Pokedex. Get it and scram.
You also get a 5 Pokeball bonus, sweet. Now, go all the way back to Viridian,
but instead of training, do some catching. It is highly recommended that you
start training your new Pokemon immediately, either Pidgey or Rattata or both.
Chances are you're going to keep it through the entire game. Now, you start a
new chapter in your journey. You will finally be able to catch Pokemon and
become a Pokemon Master.


+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~+
|                           {3.2} Viridian City                              |
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~+

You are back at Viridian City. You should know your surroundings by now, there
is a Pokemon Center near the entrance, and Pokemart northeast of it and two
exits North and West. First, go North. A man will talk to you and show you how
to catch a Pokemon, but we all know he's old and wrong since he forgot to
weaken it. You recieve a help device you will probably never need afterwards.
Anyway,now you can explore the top part of the Viridian. Don't exit yet, just
take a look at the top. You should see a closed gym and a school teaching you
about status conditions. The gym will reopen later, so let's give it some time
and train a bit.

Go back to the heart of the town and this time, take the West exit after
buying about 5-10 Pokeballs if you can afford it. Go to the patch of grass
and train your second Pokemon a bit if you plan on keeping it. Don't leave the
patchy grass except to heal.

---------------------------------------------------------

I recommend catching a Mankey in this area. They are common, good experience,
and have strong attack and speed. Spearows are rare here, they're not worth
spending a lot of time for since they appear much more commonly and are easier
to catch later on. The Nidoran that used to appear here have moved on, and so
should you. Take your Pokemon and get out of there. DO NOT explore this area
past the grasses.

After catching Pokemon, heal, buy more Pokeballs if needed, and proceed into
Viridian Forest. Don't progress through here yet, we're not done with Viridian
City. Don't fight any trainers, the first two aren't one. Here, you'll also
find many new Pokemon.

|Pikachu      |           5%           |       Easy       |
---------------------------------------------------------

Ignore Route 2, just move on to Viridian Forest. Pokemon here range from Level
2-4, but are not that strong. Leaf Green has it on the easy side since
Caterpie are more common and can't poison you. Bring an Antidote or two if you
play Fire Red. In this area, catch the caterpillars and Pikachu if you're
lucky enough to find one. If you have Charmander or Squirtle, catching Pikachu
is a must. Kakuna and Metapod are perfect training posts for weak Pokemon.
They usually come in Level 5 and can't attack. Since they are an evolved form,
you rack up some serious exp. Train your new Weedle/Caterpie here too, but not
both. By now, you should be forming a temporary 6 Pokemon team.

My team:
Mankey LV7
Rattata LV7
Weedle LV6
Pidgey LV6
Bulbasaur LV8

My team's not exactly the highest of Levels, train yours to be a bit higher,
but don't overdo it. After you finished your training, head back to Viridian
City. Heal, and head West once again. The Pokemon here should be really weak
compared to you, head up and West and you'll see the reason I told you not to
go here.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
RIVAL BATTLE 2
                   <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
OPPONENT'S POKEMON:
Bulbasaur Lineup
----------------------
|Pokemon       | Level |
|--------------|-------|
|Pidgey        |   9   |
|Bulbasaur     |   9   |
----------------------

Charmander Lineup
----------------------
|Pokemon       | Level |
|--------------|-------|
|Pidgey        |   9   |
|Charmander    |   9   |
----------------------

Squirtle Lineup
----------------------
|Pokemon       | Level |
|--------------|-------|
|Pidgey        |   9   |
|Squirtle      |   9   |
----------------------

This time, rival's a bit harder. You'll have a tough time with Pidgey's Sand
Attack at if you're at a low level and can't do much damage. Pidgey has some
decent defense. It doesn't have a flying type move yet, so all it can do it
Tackle. Nail it with Pikachu fast or use your starter. Your starter should
have its third attack by now, so use it. You will probably level up once.
After Pidgey faints, rival will send out his starter which actually isn't as
hard. Bulbasaur's Leech Seed works well here, as does Pikachu's Thundershock.
It's actually a bit easier than Pidgey. Use a Potion if needed and fry him
well.

After that, sore loser rival will walk away and now you can explore the
Pokemon League HQ a bit. You won't be able to proceed far, so when you're done
exploring, head back to Viridian City. Heal, restock, and now head into the
Viridian Forest.

==============================================================================
                            ( a. Viridian Forest )
==============================================================================

Now, it's time to progress through Viridian Forest. Train your weak Pokemon on
the wilds here, especially the caterpillars to start evolution. Now, first,
head left and then up and follow the path to get a Potion. Now, go back to
the entrance and take the right path. Keep going North, fight the Trainer who
holds a Level 6 Caterpie and Weedle. After defeating that trainer, take either
path. In the middle of the end of both paths, there will be another
Bug Catcher. This one will hold 2 Weedles and a Kakuna. Defeat and continue.
Smack in the middle of your path should be an Antidote.

There should be another fork here. They both lead to the same place. Go right,
and now there should be a rotating trainer. You shouldn't be beaten down by
now, so put a strong Pokemon first and battle. This guy sucks too with 2
Caterpies. Continue down the winding path. At one spot, there will be a
trainer with his back turned to you. Talk to him to start a battle. He will
hold two level 7 Metapods and a Level 7 Caterpie. Beat him and continue down.
At the end of the path, make a quick right to find a Potion. Now head back on
track. This next Bug Catcher only has a Level 9 Weedle. Oh nos. Wrap em up and
go to the end of the path to exit the forest.

ROUTE 2
Well, you should be a bit tired by now, right? Well, go on to Pewter City.
Ignore the things to the right for now as there's no way to get there yet.


+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~+
|                             {3.3} Pewter City                              |
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~+

Isn't it great to be back in the open city? Well, explore here a bit. You'll
see a museum(with a lot of junk in it), a house with a Nidoran Male(We should
get one), a Gym(Don't go in yet), and the regular Pokemon Center and Pokemart.
Oh yes, we should restock, shouldn't we? Let's see what's on sale...

---------------------
|SHOP MENU     |Price |
|--------------|------|
|Poke Ball     |  200 |
|Potion        |  300 |
|Antidote      |  100 |
|Paralyz Heal  |  200 |
|Burn Heal     |  250 |
|Awakening     |  250 |
|Escape Rope   |  550 |
|Repel         |  350 |
---------------------

You probably don't have much money since those Bug Catchers are broke little
whiny kids, so stock up on as much as you can and leave. You'll get your money
soon enough. In the Pokemon Center, next to the PC there's a reporter. Do
whatever you want with her, she just changes your profile when you do link-up
battles. Next to the Pokemart will be a man. Say no to his question and he
will lead you to the museum. Say Yes and he will do nothing. Try to proceed
and a dude will stop you and bring you to the gym.

Note: 1. If you're wondering about the woman who asks you a question in the
patch of grass, she's just asking you if you know what she's doing. Doesn't
matter what you choose.

2. Going to the museum is optional.

3. Talk to the Jigglypuff in the Pokemon Center! Lovely song.

4. You are now able to trade.

5. There's a hidden Pokeball two spaces left and one space down in the light
patch of grass to the left of the museum.

6. This guide is mine, Stra what's. Yes, I pwn. Er...just a random statement.

Well, what about that patch of grass we passed while coming to Pewter? There's
nothing new there, just the same old Pokemon that you found at the beginning
of Route 2. If you want to train, go back to the forest. It's perfect for
Pidgey, Spearow and Charmander. When you're done training, head to the gym.
It's time to win out first badge.


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
PEWTER GYM - BROCK
                   <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

When you head in the gym, there should be a man. Talk to him for advice. No
matter which option you pick, he'll still give you advice. Now, you can skip
the trainer, but why waste good experience and money? The kid still talks
about the light years from Red and Blue. He holds a Level 10 Geodude and a
Level 11 Sandshrew and is a good taste of how Brock will battle. If you're
having trouble with this guy, go back and train, especially if you have
Charmander. Bulbasaur and Squirtle should do fairly well though. This is the
easiest gym, so no puzzles this time.

Now it's time. Time to battle Brock. Bring it on small eyed brutha!

My party:
---------------------
| Pokemon     | Level |
|-------------|-------|
| Bulbasaur   | LV 12 |
| Mankey      | LV 8  |
| Rattata     | LV 8  |
| Pidgey      | LV 12 |
| Beedrill    | LV 10 |
---------------------

You'd be surprised at how fast Pidgey grows.

BOSS: BROCK
---------------------
| Pokemon     | Level |
|-------------|-------|
| Geodude     | LV 12 |
| Onix        | LV 14 |
---------------------

Brock is incredibly hard without a super effective attack. Grass and Water do
a LOT of damage, so attack it with Bulbasaur's Vine Whip and Squirtle's Bubble
which you should have by now if you were doing your training. If you have
Charmander, this can be a tough battle. Neither of Brock's Pokemon have that
great attacks, but they have tremendous defense! A Special Attack should do
decent damage on him, and the only way to do that now is to get a Butterfree
by evolving Metapod at Level 10. Use Potions if needed. If you're still having
a lot of trouble, you should really level up to at least Level 10. Onix is
also pretty fast. I gained two levels from this. When you win, you'll get a
TM Case in your Key Items, a Boulderbadge and a TM containing Rock Tomb.

After listening to the cool gym leader music, head out. Heal and prepare to
ascend Mount Moon. Make sure you're equipped with items(especially Pokeballs!)
as there won't be a shop for a while.

==============================================================================
                               ( a. Mount Moon )
==============================================================================

The first thing you'll see is that the person who lead you to the gym was
replaced with one of Oak's assistants. You will get the Running Shoes! Now you
can run fast by holding B while walking. So, proceed. On Route 3, the first
trainer you'll see is a Lass with two Level 9 Pidgeys. She's harder than most
of the trainers you've fought so far, so train up your weak Pokemon. Actually,
train them on all the trainers here. Here's a map:
                          5
        3           4

2                               7
----   --------|||----------|||
               |||          |||
             1 |||        6 |||
------   ------|||----------|||

1. Lass, 2 Level 9 Pidgeys.

2. Bug Catcher, 2 Level 10 Caterpies and a Level 10 Weedle.

3. Youngster holding a Level 11 Rattata and Ekans.

4. Bug Catcher, Level 9 Weedle, Kakuna, Caterpie, and Metapod.

5. Lass, Level 10 Nidoran Female and Rattata.

6. Youngster, Level 14 Spearow.

7. Bug Catcher, Level 11 Caterpie and Metapod.

OK, so after you defeat the trainers I recommend you go back to heal a bit.
The next can be tough without fast Pokemon. She looks like an innocent
bypasser walking around, but when talked to she'll battle. She carries a Level
14 Jigglypuff who can put you to sleep, so attack quick or use Awakenings.

After Jigglypuff, ignore the grass and run along the path until you get to the
Pokemon Center. To the very left is a man who sells you a Magikarp for 500,
but it's difficult to train right now and you can find them later on. After
healing, it's time to go catching.

ROUTE 3
_________________________________________________________
|WILD POKEMON | APPEARANCE RATE(FR/LG) | CATCH DIFFICULTY |
|---------------------------------------------------------|
|Jigglypuff   |            9%          |    Easy-Normal   |
|Pidgey       |           30%          |       Easy       |
|Spearow      |           50%          |       Easy       |

|Nidoran M    |          5%/1%         |       Easy       |
|Mankey       |            5%          |       Easy       |
---------------------------------------------------------

There's some new Pokemon here. For those of you who didn't catch Spearow
before, now's your chance. Another Pokemon of interest are the Nidoran and
Jigglypuff. Be sure to at least land a Nidoran Female for breeding, but if
you're playing Fire Red and can't stand to search so long, grab a male one
since IMO, that one's better anyway. Jigglypuff aren't that great but you need
it for your Pokedex. This is the only place to find it so grab it before
moving along. This is a horrible place to train Grass and Bug Pogleys so move
your butt out of there if you plan to train Bulbasaur(Ivysaur?) and your bugs.

MOUNT MOON
_________________________________________________________
|WILD POKEMON | APPEARANCE RATE(FR/LG) | CATCH DIFFICULTY |
|---------------------------------------------------------|
|Geodude      |           15%          |       Easy       |
|Zubat        |           80%          |       Easy       |
|Clefairy     |            1%          |    Easy-Medium   |
|Paras        |            4%          |       Easy       |
---------------------------------------------------------

Now here's a good training ground. Remember Geodude? You'll want it, trust me.
Zubat are only good if they can evolve into Crobat so I don't recommend
getting one yet. Clefairy and Paras are rare and unique to this area, so get
one! Train your Pokemon here as it's an excellent training ground if the
Pokemon can take down Geodudes. Paras seem to appear more often now than in
the original RBY, so don't get sos psyched when you see one.

The first thing when you get to Mount Moon(besides catching Pokemon) is to
avoid the trainers and head left to the opposite side of the large rock.
Collect TM09 containing Bullet Seed and move. From there, move up and to the
left of the trainer and water is a Paralyze Heal. OK, now let's fight the
trainer there. He will have a Level 11 Weedle and Kakuna. From him, move
back on track to the right. There will be another trainer there. If you need
to know what a Clefairy looks like, here it is. The Lass will hold a Level 14
Clefairy. It can be a bit difficult with attacks like Doubleslap and Encore,
but you should be able to handle.

This is your last chance to heal so do so if you took some damage. Now, after
that from the Lass, keep following the path. There is a ladder take it down.

|WILD POKEMON | APPEARANCE RATE(FR/LG) | CATCH DIFFICULTY |
|---------------------------------------------------------|
|Paras        |          100%          |       Easy       |
---------------------------------------------------------

This is just about all you'll find in little paths like these so I won't
include this later on.

When you resurface, fight the Rocket who holds a Level 11 Sandshrew, Zubat,
and Rattata. Collect the Star Piece and retrace your steps back.

When you get back, go south and to the left path. The trainer is difficult
here so avoid him if you can't take down Magnemite(Steel/Electric) and Voltorb
(Electric) both Level 11. Take the Potion West of him and head East. Defeat
the Bug Catcher right above the item's two Level 10 Caterpies and Metapod.
Get the Rare Candy and move on. As you keep going on the right path, you
should find another Escape Rope.

When you get to the end of the path, you should be in an area near the top of
the ladder you went to before. There's a man rotating in a pile of rocks. Talk
to him if you want, he's not a trainer. Keep going directly West from there to
find a Lass moving around. Fight her Level 11 Bellsprout and Oddish.

Keep going along the path. You should find a ladder. Collect TM46 containing
Thief and fight the Rocket's Level 11 Zubat and Ekans. Before leaving, make
sure you pick the hidden item in the rock which is Ether.

When you get back to the ground floor, there should be a trainer. Fight the
Youngster's 2 Rattatas and Zubat all Level 10. Pick up a Moon Stone(don't use
it now) and fight the Hiker's 2 Level 10 Geodudes and Level 10 Onix. Hopefully
you haven't dumped Butterfree yet or have your starter with you.

Take the ladder and go along the path. Before you go on when you resurface,
head up to find a Revive which should come in handy if your weakening at this
point(I hope you aren't...). Now head back and right. Fight the Rocket's Level
13 Rattata and Sandshrew and move on.

Keep going to fight another Rocket with a Level 13 Rattata(has Hyper Fang,
watch out!) and Zubat. They're both tougher than wild ones with new attacks,
so be prepared. Go to the little trench in the right to find a hidden Moon
Stone in the Rock. Now, go up and fight the Super Nerd. He is a bit tough
holding a Level 12 Grimer(hope you have Butterfree...), Voltorb, and Koffing.

After defeating the Super Nerd, you will be given a choice of two fossils. The
first one on the left is a Dome Fossil. This will will become a Kabutops which
is rather cool and has good attack, and the second one it the Helix Fossil
which later becomes Omastar, a Pokemon specializing in Special Attack and
Defense. Omastar is much more useful in link battles, so I recommend that
although Kabutops does look cooler. I chose the Helix Fossil.

Wonder when you'll exit? Don't worry, you're almost there. Keep going and
collect an Antidote and head up the ladder. There's going to be no more
trainers from this point on so celebrate if you're weak!

When you exit, first get used to the light and greenery. Are you OK now? Good,
head East and you will find two Move Tutors. The one on the right will teach
Mega Kick and the one on the left Mega Punch. These moves will both suck later
on if you plan to battle with friends, but at the moment they are pretty good.

They will teach only one of your Pokemon those attacks so choose wisely if at
all.

You won't be able to go back for a while so if you want you can go back
through Mount Moon, but who would do that? Pick up TM05(Roar) and head on to
the next town in which you can stock up.

POINTS OF INTEREST:

1. The Bike Shop. You can't get one yet :(

2. The Super Potions. Buy them if you have strong Pokemon.

3. The hidden Rare Candy in the backyard of the house on the upper left corner
who tells you about the badges. It's located near the right side.

4. The Police Officer blocking the house. Don't worry about that yet.

5. The house next to the Pokemon Center. The man wants a Poliwhirl. You
probably don't have one now so go back to him later.

6. The Pokemon blocking the little tree. We'll get there later too.

7. The House next to the Poliwhirl man. He gives you a bottle to hold crushed
berries.

After healing and stocking up, you probably want to check out that patch of
grass West of here right? Well, go right ahead. Just don't leave the city
through the other exit.

The only thing here you want is your version exclusive. Everything else you
should have. Unless you are underleveled, move on.

From here, you have two choices. You can either defeat the Gym Leader or
explore what's later on. I personally explored a bit to train some more before
fighting. So, what's keeping ya? Let's go on! If you have not caught a Pikachu
and own a Squirtle or especially Charmander, take the bridge first and come
back to this section later. Since I chose good old Bulbasaur, I'm doing the
gym first. Beware, both routes you choose have challenges. Skip through the
walkthrough to find the part you're at.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
CERULEAN GYM - MISTY
                   <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

You don't think we went all the way through Mount Moon for nothing do you?
As you come in the gym, you can probably guess this gym leader's theme. That's
right, water, which is why Charmander and Squirtle dwellers should wait until
they caught an Oddish/Bellsprout before even trying this as Misty is hard.

OK, no puzzles in this gym either, which is great. Go straight up and battle
the swimmer(or even skip him if you'd like, but what about all that wasted
experience?)'s level 16 Horsea and Shellder. Have fun pwning these guys with
your Electric/Grass type Pokemon, but if you're having trouble here then Misty
is going to devastate you. The Shellder has Icicle Spear that is super
effective against Grass types but that shouldn't be able to take down strong
ones.

Now, onto the next trainer! Or, if you choose to skip her, on to Misty! But
let's battle just for some exp ;) Picknicker will hold a simple Level 19
Goldeen so Vine Whip/Absorb/Thundershock once and it's gone. OK, now for the
big stuff.

My party:
---------------------
| Pokemon     | Level |
|-------------|-------|
| Ivysaur     |  18   |
| Pidgeotto   |  18   |
| Beedrill    |  15   |
---------------------

As you can see, I dumped most of my not-so-great Pokemon or those who level
up to slow. Blah.

BOSS: MISTY
---------------------
| Pokemon     | Level |
|-------------|-------|
| Staryu      |  18   |
| Starmie     |  21   |
---------------------

Misty holds two Pokemon you probably have never seen before. Staryu, the
pre-evolution of Starmie, is fast and has powerful Water attacks. Starmie is
stronger and has better defenses. Both carry a strong attack, Water Pulse,
that has a high chance of confusing you. Switch often and hope you live. Just
go all out with Electric and Grass attacks which both Staryu and Starmie are
weak against and don't bother using Geodude and Sandshrew, both weak very weak
to water. She's difficult with low level Pokemon so be at least level 15 when
battling her!

After the battle, Misty will give you a Cascade Badge allowing you to use Cut
and also TM03. That annoying Water Pulse confusing thang is now yours to use!
...I mean, use only once. Oh well.

Note: For those that returned in the rod, there's no Pokemon in this gym like
the previous versions :)

Now that you have beaten Misty, it's time to travel along Nugget Bridge. Go up
to the bridge and take a look at the glorious magnificent structure and change
since RBY and...wait a second! Who's that coming? OMG it's your rival!

RIVAL BATTLE 3

OPPONENT'S POKEMON:

|Pokemon       | Level |

|Pidgeotto     | LV 17 |
|Rattata       | LV 15 |
|Abra          | LV 16 |

|Pokemon       | Level |

|Pidgeotto     | LV 17 |
|Rattata       | LV 15 |
|Abra          | LV 16 |
|Squirtle      | LV 18 |
----------------------

Your rival's not a pushover this time...He's almost, if not harder than Misty!
Although his levels aren't as high as hers, he has more Pokemon. If you've
beaten Misty, you should have no problem with this, but if you can't beat him,
then you really have to train. Use a Pikachu or Geodude against Pidgeotto, you
should at least have one of those. If you don't, tough luck since Sand Attack
will be a huge problem. If you have a high level Pidgey or Pidgeotto of your
own then it can work since it does have Keen Eye preventing Accuracy Loss.
Any Pokemon with decent defense, namely Geodude and Sandshrew, can take care
of Rattata. Abra is the least of your worries, all it can do is Teleport which
does absolutely nothing. It's worse than Metapod and Kakuna for now. < Note
that. Now for Rival's starter. Although they're not evolved yet, they carry
element attacks in which you should beware of. However, by now you can get
Pokemon that can withstand any of the starters attacks and can deal super
effective hits to them. Use it and the starter'll be gone quick. Note that you
should probably keep that starter killer for the rest of the game.

After beating Rival you'll get a Fame Checker. It does...pretty much nothing.
You'll hear news from famous people. Weee.

OK, go back and heal and restock, then it's time to take the Nugget Bridge
challenge. What's the challenge you ask? Beat 5 trainers. They all suck
compared to Gary so they should be no problem. Just train your weak Pokemon on
them.

The first trainer is a Bug Catcher who hold a Level 10 Caterpie, Weedle,
Metapod and Kakuna. Next, the Lass will hold a Level 12 Pidgey, Oddish, and
Bellsprout. Next up is a Youngster holding a Level 14 Sandshrew and Ekans. The
trainer, Lass again, will hold a Level 16 Nidoran Male and Female. Getting
harder yet? The last trainer, a Camper, will hold a Level 18 Mankey.
Excellent, we beat the Nugget Bridge challenge, right? Wrong. The next dude
will give you a prize(Nugget. Duh. Sell it.) but will challenge you for not
joining up with Team Rocket. He'll hold a Level 15 Ekans and Zubat, typical
Rocket Pokemon.

After getting through, get the TM45(Attract) at the top. Now, it's time to go
Pokemon catching!

Here are a few new faces. If you manage to find your version exclusive here,
catch it and train it well if you don't have Bulbasaur. Both of those Pokemon
are useful as Grass types and are the only you'll find in a while. They are
also effective aginst Misty if you haven't defeated her yet. You'll still find
the caterpillars here. One thing to note is Abra. Remember Gary and his
useless Abra who can't Teleport? Well, it can Teleport here and with that as
its only move, it will escape all battles and be difficult to catch. You will
want to catch it and evolve as soon as possible since it evolves into a VERY
strong Psychic type, one of the best in the game. To catch it, use a fast
Pokemon like Butterfree or Ivysaur's Sleep Powder. If you don't have either,
just chuck Pokeballs at it although there will be a low chance of you actually
catching it. Come back and try later if you need to. This place is a poor
training area so just go on to the next few trainers and beat every one of
them. Oh, here's another bad map:

1. Camper, Level 14 Rattata and Ekans.

2. Hiker, Level 15 Machop and Geodude.

3. Youngster, Level 14 Rattata and Spearow.

4. Hiker, Level 17 Onix.

5. Youngster, Level 17 Slowpoke.

6. Picnicker, Level 15 Nidoran Male and Female.

7. Hiker, 3 Level 13 Geodudes and a Level 13 Machop.

8. Camper, Level 14 Rattata and Ekans.
Before you fight this trainer, make sure you stay close to the Hiker below so
that he'll move out of the way allowing you to get Secret Power behind him. If
you don't get it, you'll just have to wait until you get the HM Cut.

9. This trainer's walking around. Youngster, Level 14 Ekans and Sandshrew.

10. Last trainer now. Lass holds a 2 Level 13 Oddishes and a Pidgey.

OK, after my horrible ASCII map and the last trainer, go right on to the
house. There, you'll see a weird...thing. Talk to it, and it'll explain that
he is Bill and got trapped in a Pokemon's body during an experiement and can't
turn back. So, of course, help him. You can abandon him too, but then we won't
be able to continue the game. After Bill goes into the transporter thing, go
to the computer and press A and Bill will turn back. Talk to him again to get
the S.S. Anne Ticket. BTW, from now on Someone's PC will become Bill's PC.

There's a nice pool of water in front of Bill's house for those who returned
with fishing rods.

Time to head back now. Take the South route this time. Talk to the couple on
the way there. Heal, restock, and go to where the police officer was before.
He's not blocking the door anymore so go right on in. The first thing you'll
notice is that the house he was blocking is all trashed up and a wreck. Only
Team Rocket could be behind this! And so they are. Go outside through the back
and confront the Rocket. He will admit to wrecking the house and battle you!
He holds a Level 17 Machop and Drowzee, a Psychic type with excellent
Special Defense. When you beat him he will give you the TM he used to break
through the house, Dig(TM28). OK, let's heal and continue onward. If you
haven't beaten Misty yet, you should have trained enough to do so.

---------------------------------------------------------

There's nothing interesting in the grass of Route 5 except for Meowth which
aren't exactly the best Pokemon in the world. Continue on to find a daycare
center with a man who will increase Pokemon's levels for you. He's not that
great since it's 1 step = 1 exp, so move on unless you wish to drop off your
Magikarp here. You can't breed either.

If you enter the bulding down below, the guard won't let you through. That's
OK, head to the building on the right instead. You'll find a girl who wants to
trade a Nidoran. In Fire Red, she'll trade you a Nidoran Female for a Nidoran
Male and viceversa for Leaf Green. It's a great oppurtunity for the lazy ones
that didn't catch the rare Nidoran from before.

When you exit, head along the path to the left and fight the Bug Catcher there
holding 2 Level 16 Weedles(OMG!!) and Caterpie. The grass here holds the same
Pokemon as the the place after Cerulean so don't bother searching for Pokemon.
Keep going to find two trainers. The male Camper on the left will have a Level
20 Squirtle. The female will hold a Level 16 Rattata and Pikachu. This Bug
Catcher is very tough. He has a Level 20 Butterfree holding both Confusion and
status attacks. Skip him if you're weak.

All right, the last two trainers now. The first one, a Camper, will hold 3
Level 16 Pidgeys. Now, the final trainer is rather tough. He holds a Level 16
Spearow and Raticate, the evolved form of Rattata and has pretty gnarly
attack.

OK, on to Vermilion City!

You probably need some healing, so do that first. Now, for the quest of some
items. As usual, restock and talk to the girl nearest to the nurse. She will
give you an item which, when used near a trainer, will see if the trainer
wants a rematch. It can only be used once in a while though. Next, go to the
neighboring house to the left of the Pokemon Center. There will be a fisherman
there. Talk to get the Old Rod. Although it sucks, keep it anyway. Next stop
is the Pokemon Fan Club. It should be pretty obvious with a sign and Pokeball
on the bulding. Talk to the old dude there and say yes to talk about his
Pokemon. Afterwards, you'll get a Bike Voucher. Yippee. Catch an extra Spearow
and go to the house next to the Pokemon Fan Club. Trade it for a useless
Farfetch'd. It's the only way to get it in out Pokedexes though. It's equipped
with a Stick increasing its Critical Hit Ratio but it's still going to be
useless later in the game. If try to head towards the gym, you will see a tree
blocking the way. You will be able to cut it down later, so let's go somewhere
else.

Now, you should probably do whatever you have to at Cerulean. Defeat any
trainers you haven't already. In the Bike Shop, trade in that Bike Voucher for
a free Bycicle. If you still haven't beat Misty, you absolutely positively
have to now. And if you still can't beat her, that's just sad.

When you get back, look around. You should see the gym is blocked by a bush.
Oh bummer. Now we have to do something to get past it :( Like always. Well,
why don't we train up a bit before actually doing some quests? Shall we?

Not much here. If you haven't caught an Abra and evolved it, get a Drowzee or
wait a bit longer for Mr. Mime. Either way, you need a Psychic on your team.
They make great training posts and aren't quite that bad. The rest shouldn't
interest you though so move on to the trainers.

First, head up and get the Ice Heal. The Youngster directly across from you
will hold only a Level 21 Ekans. Now from there, go South to find a Gambler
holding a Level 18 Horsea and Poliwag, both Water types. He holds a great
pocket so beat him an move on. From the Gambler, move back up and right, right
on down the path. You will find another Youngster standing still. He holds a
Level 19 Sandshrew and Zubat. Next up is the walking Youngster. He will have a
Level 18 Nidoran Male and Nidorino. Go South from him to find a bald dude, an
Engineer. He carries a Level 2 18 Magnemites and Magneton, so make sure you
have a Ground or Fighting type as he is very difficult without them. OK, from
there, continue right and fight the old man, a Gambler holding a Level 18
Oddish and Bellsprout. Pick up the X-Defense and go up and fight the Engineer
holding a Level 21 Magnemite.

OK, the next trainer is a Gambler in the upper right corner holding a Level
18 Vulpix and Growlithe, both Fire Pokemon. The Youngster below him will
have 2 Level 17 Rattatas and Raticate. OK, now near the house, the Gambler
will hold a Level 18 Voltorb and Magnemite. That should rap up the trainers.
Before going in the bulding, grab the Great Ball and the Escape Rope hidden
in the Rock above the gate.

Now, go in the building. If you try to continue, there will be a Pokemon
blocking the road. You can't do anything now so head back to the building and
go upstairs to the observatory. You will find a trainer who will trade a
Nidorina for a Nidorino. Not exactly a great trade, but do it if you want.
Next, Professor Oak's aid will want to see your Pokedex. If you have 30
Pokemon, he will give you an Itemfinder. You'll want it since it has a Special
function to find hidden items. If you don't have 30 Pokemon, go back and
catch some more and evolve them.

==============================================================================
                                ( a. S.S. Anne )
==============================================================================

After getting the Itemfinder, head back to Vermilion City. Heal, and then it's
time to board the S.S. Anne using the ticket Bill gave you. OK, there's a ton
of trainers who are restless because something's holding up the boat, so let's
fight them. Oh, just to let you know, the place is a horrible place for
Charmeleon. It seems that the boat isn't moving and many people are bored and
itching for a battle, so let's get em and see what's up.

Starting from the very right room, the Gentleman will hold 2 Level 18
Growlithes. In the next room to the left, there will be a nice young lady who
will heal you. Sweet. No running back to the Pokemon Center for you! Now on to
the next room. As soon as you enter, you will be challenged by a Gentleman
holding a Level 19 Nidoran Male and Female. There nothing interesting in the
next two rooms except a Wigglytuff you can talk to. After those two though
will be a room with three people in it. The first one is a Lass holding a
Level 18 Pidgey and Nidoran Female. The next person is a Youngster holding a
Level 21 Nidoran Male. The last person does nothing, so go get TM31 containing
Brick Break, one of the best Fighting attacks in the game! The next room only
has an undercover agent, so basically you've done everything you need to do on
this floor. Now, go the left and down instead of up the staircase.

Here, you will find the kitchen. In the third garbage can to the right, there
will be a Berry. There's also a Great Ball in here.

Head back up now go all the way to the right and down into that staircase. In
the garbage can near the descending stairs, you will find a Hyper Potion. Now,
onto the trainers. In the first room there won't be anything but a Machoke and
Super Potion. Get it and move on to the next. You will find two Sailors, the
closer one will hold a Level 21 Shellder. The farther one will have a Level 18
Horsea, Shellder, and Tentacool. As soon as you enter the next room, you will
get another challenge by a Sailor with 3 Level 17 Horseas. Grab the Potion and
move on. Now, on the second to last door there will be another Sailor with a
Level 18 Tentacool and Staryu. Behind him will be TM44, Rest. Make sure you
grab that as it is a very useful TM. Now, this next room has 2 trainers. The
one wearing red is a Fisherman holding a Level 17 Tentacool, Staryu, and
Shellder. The one wearing blue is a Sailor holding a Level 20 Machop. All
right, that's another floor down.

Now, from the basement let's head three floors up. I know we're skipping one,
but that's fine for now. OK, there's some people here so it's time for some
more trainer battles. As soon as you head out, you will see a bald man. He
won't battle, so talk and keep going left. There will be a Sailor just smack
in the middle of the map, so defeat his level 17 Machop and Tentacool. Now, go
left to fight a Sailor holding a LEvel 18 Machop and Shellder. That's all the
trainers in this area for a quick clear.

Head back to the previous floor, the last one. In the first room to the left,
there should be a man in there. Talk to him to recieve a picture of Snorlax in
your Pokedex. It's not a must, just a plus(rhyme not intended). In the next
room, fight the Fisherman holding 2 level 17 Goldeens and Tentacool. After him
there should be a Gentleman holding a Level 23 Pikachu. Pick up the Stardust
after defeating him. The next room has no trainers or items, so keep going.
At the room after, there will be a Lass at the top of the screen holding a
Level 18 Rattata and Pikachu. There will also be a Gentleman with a Level 17
Growlithe and Ponyta. That's the last of the trainers, feel free to explore
the last two doors, but heal up before you venture onwards because here comes
the big scary rival.

----------------------

Another Rival battle already? That's right. Well, he hasn't done too much
leveling up so he should be easy this time around since you probably have
defeating all those trainers from before. Pidgeotto is still here and a threat
with Sand Attack, so switch constantly if you don't have a Geodude or Pikachu
to finish it quick. His Rattata seemed to have evolved even though it's not
high enough a level, that darn cheater. Raticate has extremely high attack so
use a Potion on Geodude or fight with another high defense Pokemon. Watch out
for Hyper Fang and Quick Attack which are very strong moves at this point. Its
weakness is fighting.

Abra has also evolved into Kadabra, a very mighty Pokemon, this time with more
than just Teleport and unbelievably high Special Attack to trounce your
Pokemon. You don't have much that can withstand Special Attacks at this point,
so the best thing to do is to use Quick Attack and attack first since it has
low defense. Kadabra is one of the fastest Pokemon(yes, including high levels,
that's how powerful it is) so be on your guard! It uses Psychic attacks and
can disable your powerful moves for a limited time. Major annoyance at low
levels.

Now, for his starter, which has finally evolved, isn't too tough. It will
usually use elemental attacks and a super effective hit can OHKO that sucker.


Woohoo, after beating your rival you can head right up that staircase into the
Captain's chamber. He seems to be a bit sick though...don't examine the trash
can(eeew...) and talk to him. He was seasick, so that's why the boat wasn't
moving! He will give you your very first HM, Cut! A quick side note, these
HMs can be used as many times as you want and are nice moves but you can't
delete them until much later in the game, so be careful who you teach it to!
HMs can also be used outside a battle to get past obstacles, so teach it to
one of your Pokemon since we'll be using it. Remember that you have to have
Misty(Cerulean City)'s badge before you can use it outside of battle.

Now, we can cut that tree blocking the gym. But before we do, let's head East
into Diglett's Cave.

DIGLETT'S CAVE
_________________________________________________________
|WILD POKEMON | APPEARANCE RATE(FR/LG) | CATCH DIFFICULTY |
|---------------------------------------------------------|
|Diglett      |           90%          |       Easy       |
|Dugtrio      |           10%          |       Hard       |
---------------------------------------------------------

Digletts have weak defenses but are very fast and strong with powerful ground
attacks. They range from levels 13-24. Dugtrios are its evolution and are

around Level 28. It's near impossible to run from these guys since they have
a high Speed stat and can have an ability called Arena Trap which blocks all
Pokemon except those immune to Ground types from escaping. Keep a Flying type
first and do NOT let it faint. Catch one of these guys as they are very good
Ground types.

After resurfacing, you will see that you ended up in that place near Pewter in
which you saw before. You can cut down that bush in the way and do all the
business there that you want, including catch Pokemon which you didn't want to
get before.

When you finish your Pewter business, head South from the exit of Diglett's
Cave. Check the house. There will be a man there who wants to trade a Mr. Mime
for an Abra, an excellent trade if you have an extra Abra since Mr. Mime
cannot be found anywhere else in the entire Advances series. What a dumb kid.

OK, let's try that new cut thing. Try it on the strange plant and head right
on through. There should be another building with another one of Oak's
assistants. If you have caught 10 Pokemon(dear god, I hope you do), he will
give you HM05.

Keep going through the South exit. There will be an Ether. Pick it up. Keep
going to find another item, a Paralyze Heal. You see those bushes to the left?
You can cut them and head to Viridian City. There won't be anything new except
that you can get a Move Tutor near the pond and can go a bit further through
the Pokemon League checkpoint where you fought your rival for the second time.
When you're done, head back to Vermilion City and get ready for your third
badge.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
VERMILION GYM - LT. SURGE
                   <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

OK, here it is, your first gym puzzle. First, let's defeat the trainers though
as they can be a menace trying avoid all the time and is a good way to
practice. If you can't tell by the name, this gym uses Electric Pokemon and
only Electric Pokemon, meaning your ground types will have a ball as
electric attacks do NO damage to them. None, zip, nada. If you don't have one,
get you butt over to Diglett's Cave and catch one.

Now, the first trainer to the very bottom will be a Sailor who does not use
Water Pokemon, but instead will have 2 Level 21 Pikachus. Next guy in the
middle will be an Engineer with a Level 21 Voltorb and Magnemite. Now, the
last guy is a Gentleman with a Level 23 Pikachu. He likes to use Double Team
a lot, an extremely annoying attack that increases his evasion so your attacks
won't land.

OK, so now that the trainers are done, you should notice that the door to the
gym has an electric block on it. So here comes the puzzle. First, heal up
since you if you exit after solving the puzzle, it resets.

This is a really annoying puzzle. It's basically guess and check. You need to
find two switches to unlock the door. They are hidden in the garbage cans. The
first switch is random and the second switch will always be in one of the cans
next to the switch. If you get the second switch wrong, the first switch
resets and you have to find it all over again.

Once you get both switches, you are free to fight Surge.

My party:
---------------------
| Pokemon     | Level |
|-------------|-------|
| Ivysaur     | LV 26 |
| Pidgeotto   | LV 21 |
| Beedrill    | LV 21 |
| Diglett     | LV 23 |
| Pikachu     | LV 20 |
---------------------

Level 20+ should be able to beat him, less if you have a Ground type.

BOSS: LT. SURGE
---------------------
| Pokemon     | Level |
|-------------|-------|
| Voltorb     |  21   |
| Pikachu     |  18   |
| Raichu      |  24   |
---------------------

Note: This battle is almost optional. You can go to nearly the end of the game
before you actually have to fight him. So if you feel lazy or can't beat him,
move on for a bit :P

Like every other trainer in the gym, Surge uses electric Pokemon. He's kind of
a joke with Ground Pokemon, or even with just a Ground type attack since his
defenses are weak. All of his Pokemon have an attack you haven't seen yet
called Shock Wave. It can never miss and can pack quite a punch. It still does
no damage to Ground types though.

Voltorb will be the easiest dude to beat. If Shockwave doesn't deal enough
damage, it will use Sonicboom which misses often and when hits, deals 20
damage no matter what. Pikachu is also easy at a low level. It likes to use
Double Team A LOT if Shockwave doesn't deal enough damage to you, so defeat it
quick just like the Gentleman's Pikachu before in the gym. His prize Pokemon
is next, Raichu.

Raichu is the evolved form of Pikachu and is quite strong without Ground
attacks. Its first 4 moves or so will always be Double Team making it a big
pain in the butt to kill. If your ground attacks don't hit the first few
turns, you'd better hope that you saved your game before. After Double
Teaming, Surge will use a mix of Quick Attack and Shockwave to defeat your
Pokemon. Thunder Wave also appears sometimes causing more annoyance and
disability to attack. Not only that, but Lt. Surge will use a Super Potion if
Raichu's low in health! Keep hitting and don't give up! Geodude, Sandshrew,
and other Pokemon with high Defenses are greatly recommended. Remember that
Raichu is the fastest Pokemon that you have met so far, unless you happened to
come across a Dugtrio.

After defeating Lt. Surge(whew! It can take a few times even with high level
Pokemon), you will get not only the Thunderbadge does vitrually nothing and
TM31, Shockwave.

Heal, stock up, and get ready to move on. We're done here in Vermilion City.
Don't forget to get the Itemfinder and move out. But wait...where else to go?
Well, let's backtrack to Cerulean City and see if there's anything there.
At this point, you MUST have gotten the HM05, Flash, through Diglett's Tunnel
unless you think you'll handle yourself really well in the dark.

While you're at Cerulean City, make sure you have a bike. While you're heading
back, you may notice a small path to the right that we were not able to get to
before. Wait! There seems to be a bush blocking the way. Let's cut it and
continue onwards. You'll notice this is another one of the trainer's favorite
standing around and doing nothing waiting for you to come spots. Let's get
em tiger!

First match will be a female Picknicker with 2 Level 18 Oddishes and 2
Bellsprouts. Jump some ledges to see an item ball, TM40. Pick it up and there
will be a Hiker near there holding a Level 18 Machop and Level 20 Onix. OK,
now move left and up to find a Camper holding a Level 21 Growlithe and
Charmander. If you move upwards, there will be a Bug Catcher with 2 Level 19
Beedrills. Continue to the left and find a hidden Ether in the rock. Jump the
two ledges to find yourself back where you started. Go back to the Camper and
head down and right, then up when you see the nearest opening. Fight the Bug
Catcher holding a Level 20 Caterpie, Weedle, and Venonat. Go left to find a
Camper with a Level 19 Rattata, 2 Sandshrews, and an Ekans. Ignore the patch
of grass and fight the Hiker back near the Bug Catcher holding 2 Level 20
Geodudes and a Machop. Now, go right, jump the right ledge and fight the
Picnicker holding a Level 23 Meowth. From her, jump down two ledges if you are
not nor tired and defeat the Hiker with a Level 21 Geodude and Onix. Pick up
the Burn Heal and head all the way back the the Meowth trainer.

That should be it, head to the right and you will find a patch of grass and a
Pokemon Center! Weee, heal and get ready to catch a few new Pokemon.

All wimpy Pokemon here. These only have a Level range of approximately 11-16
and give little experience. You only want to catch Voltorb here, but it's not
exactly the greatest Pokemon so I would drop it from your party.

All right, whenever you're ready, fight the trainer South of the center
holding a Level 20 Pikachu and Celfairy. Now, make sure you have at least 1
Escape Rope and some Potions as we're about to head into Rock Tunnel.

---------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to Rock Tunnel. Dank old place isn't it? And totally dark. Remember
that Flash HM you got, HM05? I dearly hope so because if not, you're going to
have a rough time through this place. Teach Flash to any Pokemon(Don't erase
a good attack, Flash blows) and use it to light up the cave. This place isn't
the greatest training area either, but it does have some rare Pokemon only
found in this area. You should catch a Machop and Onix, both great Pokemon
when evolved, but quite rare.

Now, head all the way to the right to find an item ball containing Repel.

Head back and go South to find the first of many, many trainers in this cave.
The crazy Pokemaniac will hold a Cubone and Slowpoke. Cubone is a new face, it
has very high defense so use a Grass or Water type to beat it up like with
Brock. It's a Ground type. Slowpoke will show its face again for a second
appearance. Grass and Electric will do with him. These Pokemon are hard, but
only average here in this cave so don't be stingy with Potions.

All right, continue down the path and take the ladder. Now, fight the
Pokemaniac in the middle of the path holding a Level 25 Slowpoke. Now, keep
going all the way left to find a Revive. Now, go back and up to fight that
Picnicker holding a Level 22 Oddish and Bulbasaur. OK, keep going to find
a Pokemaniac you have to fight holding a Level 22 Charmander and Cubone.
You will soon find yourself in a place where there's a large rock in the
middle of the place so you can go left or up. The Hiker to the left holds a
Level 25 Geodude and the one up holds a Level 20 Machop and Geodude. They both
lead to the same ladder so go either path, or both.

After you get out of the ladder, you will see a Hiker. Beat his 3 Level 19
Geodudes and Machop. Head to the left side of the rock and go down to find
yet another Hiker holding a 2 Level 20 Onixes and Geodude. Head right to find
an Escape Rope. Head up and battle the Hiker holding a Level 21 Geodude and
Graveler. Graveler should be a new face, it is the evolved form of Geodude
but is taken down the same way.

Almost out! Take the ladder and fight the Picnicker when coming out and going
West. She'll have a Level 21 Jigglypuff, Pidgey, and Meowth. If you move South
from her, you will find a Move Tutor who'll teach Rock Slide, a very good
move. If you don't want to use it just yet, just head up from the Picnicker
to get an Ether and fight the Hiker back to the left. He has 2 Level 21
Geodudes and a Graveler. Go up after him and fight the Pokemaniac with 3 Level
20 Slowpokes. Take the ladder.

You'll be confronted by two Picnickers. The first one will have a Level 22
Bellsprout and Clefairy. The second a Level 19 Pidgey, 2 Rattatas, and a
Bellsprout. Go left and up to pick up an item and then back down and left to
fight another Pickniker witha Level 20 Meowth, Pidgey and Oddish. Yes! That's
out ticket out of here! After her just head on out!

But wait! We're not out of the jungle yet. If you want, try to ignore the
next few trainers and go straight on to the next city since your Pokemon are
probably very low in health and PP, but I'm going to pretend that we're not.
(Don't worry, I was tired too at this point -_-) The Picnicker right in front
of you will have a Level 21 Pidgey and Pidgeotto and the Hiker will have a
Level 21 Geodude and Onix. Jump the ledge and fight the next Hiker who holds
a Level 19 Onix and Graveler. Now head right and fight the Pokemaniac
wandering around holding a Level 20 Cubone and Slowpoke. After him, run
towards the city and celebrate that we are finally out of the cave!

5. The two exits. The bottom one leads to Silence Bridge, the other to
Celadon. Don't go to Silence Bridge yet, it leads to a dead end.

6. No gym. Looks like there's no business to be done here...

Well, after healing a stocking up(and defeating leftover trainers if you
haven't yet.), let's explore a bit. Doesn't curiosity just lead you to the
gigantic bulding? That's the Pokemon Tower. Head in and listen to the new
song. Head up the stairs and you'll hear a warning from the Channeler there.
Whatever. Keep going to see...your rival?!?! Already?! Time to battle!

---------------------

It's been a while so my team's posted here too. I think I overtrained
Ivysaur...

This is where you see some real difference in your rival. He still has
Pidgeotto which is as annoying as usual with Sand Attack, but is now armed
with a new attack, Whirlwind. He'll use this rarely but it can be dangerous
since it switches your Pokemon.

Now, if your rival started with a Charmander or Bulbasaur, he will have a
Gyarados. This thing is about as hard as spelling its name. It will constantly
use Thrash which will have a lot of power and can KO a lot, but will confuse
itself after 3 turns which is your chance to strike. Electric attacks should
do the trick. BTW, if you ever want this Pokemon, evolve your Magikarp if you
haven't already ;o

If you rival started with a Charmander or Squirtle, he will have an Exeggcute.
It's a bit of a joke really. It will usually use Awakening first followed by
a Reflect to increase defense. It can easily be KO'd within a few turns as
long as you have an Awawkening. It's a new face but easy to defeat.

If your rival started with a Bulbasaur or Squirtle, he will have a Growlithe.
Another easy dude, you've faced many on the SS Anne and this one is no
different. Use Ground, Rock, or Water attacks.

Kadabra is also the same as always. High Special Attack and low defense, so
a couple of Quick Attacks should make quick work of it. It will use Kinesis
a lot which is just like Pidgeotto's Sand Attack so finish it fast and keep
switching.

Now for the starter. All three of them will just use their normal elemental
attack along with a new damaging attack. They're all pretty simple and will
fall fast to something that they are weak against.


When you finish the battle, your rival will talk a bit about Team Rocket. Hmm,
maybe it's them that's causing this trouble. The Channelers seem to be
possessed by ghosts and are itching for fights which aren't good. Let's see
what's upstairs.

Head up and you will encounter wild Pokemon. You will see ghosts. But wait...
ghosts aren't Pokemon. They are uncatchable and won't deal any damage, so
just run. They do have a Pokemon cry though. This place is creepy, let's get
out of here. There's nothing we can do anyway.

Leave the Pokemon Tower and head West. Time for the trainer express. There
will be a Lass there. Fight her 2 Level 22 Clefairys. Watch out, they have
Minimize which can be very annoying. Keep going and fight the Gambler. He will
have a Level 24 Growlithe and Vulpix, both Fire types. Go further up and there
will be a Super Nerd. He will have a Level 22 Grimer and Muk, the evolved form
of the Poison type Grimer. After this, you will have your first double battle!
The twins after the Super Nerd will hold a Level 22 Jigglypuff and Clefairy.
Afterwards, keep going to see a line of 4 traines. Let's whup each and every
one of them. First at the top is a Lass with a Level 23 Nidoran Female and
Nidorina.

Next down the line is a Super Nerd with only a Level 24 Koffing. The next
trainer will have 3 Level 24 Mewoths. Now the next Lass(again) has many
Pokemon but is a bit of a joke with a Level 19 Pidgey, Rattata, Meowth,
Nidoran Male, and Pikachu.

A bunch of Bikers will be wandering around after this. Get them to see you.
The first one you meet will have 2 Level 24 Grimers. The second one will hold
a Level 24 Koffing, a Level 22 Koffing, and a Level 23 Grimer. There is also
a patch of grass here.

After the two Bikers, there should only be two trainers left. The one to the
left is a Super Nerd holding a Level 20 Magnemite, Koffing, and two Voltorbs.
The Gambler to the right holds 2 Level 22 Poliwags and a Poliwhirl. That wraps
up the trainers.

You should now see two exits. The one to left has a guard who will not let you
through so go up towards the Underground path. When you surface, you will
reach the fantastic Celadon City.

Wow! Look at those ABSOLUTELY HUGE buildings! Well, first, let's get a hidden
item. Head down to the path right above the gym and head all the way to the
right to find a dead end. At the top right corner there will be an Elixer.
Now head back down and left. On the last building to the left there will be a
bar-like place. There seems to be a buzz about Team Rocket. Make sure you talk
to the man in the upper lefthand corner to get a Coin Case to gamble :o

BTW, if you choose to gamble, there is a very good place that gets you tons of
coins. I was told by Owenlars2 that each row has different odds of winning
coins. The machine on the second row from the right has very good odds. The
best machine is the one where you are facing left and your back is behind the
man who talks about watching the reels closely. I got 777 on this one once,
and that was playing like, 5 times.

Why don't we take a look at the Mart? It seems to hold just about everything!

At the rooftop, there is a vending machine. These drinks are all much more
effective than Super Potions yet so much cheaper. Make sure you buy a lot
since this is the only place where you can get them. One more thing, there's
a little girl there who is thirsty. Give her one of each drink and she will
give you TM16, 20, and 33.

After that, head over to the Pokemon Center. Don't go in, instead, head
towards the little path to the right. Go all the way to the left to find an
Ether. Now go in the building you passed to find yourself in the Gamefreak
bulding's back exit. Go all the way up the stairs to the top floor and into
the mini place. Get the Pokeball to find an Eevee! If you're missing a type,
now's the time to get it by evolving Eevee, or just keeping it in the box if
you don't like it. That's what I did.

After you stock up, head over to the Game Corner. You can now collect
coins with your new Coin Case. Sadly though, you have to pay to get them or
win games which are quite rare, and we need those coins to get some nice
prizes next door. The people here seem to be pretty kind though so why not ask
them for some money? You can collect about 80 from them and there are a bunch
of hidden ones on the floor so you should have well over 100 free coins. Feel
free to play the slots for a while although I find it a waste of money. Just
press down a few times to choose how many coins you would like to use from
1-3. The more coins you have, the higher chance for you to win.

One more thing of interest in the Game Corner. At the bottom right hand corner
there is a machine. It takes pictures of the Pokemon in your party and adds
them to your trainer card. How nice. Hmm? What's that Rocket doing over there?
Don't talk to him as we'll deal with him later. Right now, time to head to the
Celadon City Gym!


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
CELADON GYM - ERIKA
                   <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

When you first step into the gym, it's obvious the type these trainers use,
just like every other gym -_- They are all female Grass Pokemon trainers who
hate Bugs, Birds, and Fire types. Guess which types you're going to use?

Approach the first two trainers. The first one is a Lass with a Level 23
Bellsprout and Weepinbell, the evolution of Bellsprout. The second is a Beauty
with 2 Level 21 Oddishes and Bellsprouts. Now in the left branch is another
Beauty with 2 Level 24 Bellsprouts. The right branch has a Picnicker with a
Level 24 Bulbasaur and Ivysaur.

Cut the bush at the front entrance to fight a Female Cooltrainer holding a
Level 22 Oddish, Bellsprout, Weepinbell, Gloom, and Ivysaur. She also has a
Hyper Potion. To the left there is a Beauty holding a Level 24 Exeggcute. The
Lass on the right has 2 Level 23 Oddishes and a Gloom.

Now, time for Erika!

My party:
---------------------
| Pokemon     | Level |
|-------------|-------|
| Venusaur    | LV 33 |
| Pidgeotto   | LV 29 |
| Beedrill    | LV 26 |
| Diglett     | LV 25 |
| Pikachu     | LV 27 |
| Vulpix      | LV 22 |
---------------------

I haven't done a lot of leveling since I picked up Vulpix, but levels around
25+ can beat this Grass vixen.

BOSS: ERIKA
---------------------
| Pokemon     | Level |
|-------------|-------|
| Victreebel  | LV 29 |
| Tangela     | LV 24 |
| Vileplume   | LV 29 |
---------------------

Erika's Pokemon are tough. Very tough. Not only are they all final evolutions
with excellent stats, she uses moves like Stun Spore to paralyze your Pokemon
making it difficult to attack and keeping your health in check. Bring
Antidotes and Paralyze Heal if you can. She also has many Hyper Potions and
Full Heals.

Victreebel has average Defense and very high Special Attack and Attack with
moves like Acid that get an extra boost from its type. It will rip through
your Pokemon fast if you can't defeat it quickly enough. Tangela is like a
break from Victreebel, it's not as tough but still something to beware of. It
can heal itself with Ingrain and cause status conditions. Tangela also has
high Defense, but low Attack. Use this time to heal yourself with Potions.
Vileplume can be hard to take down. It also has high defenses are a move
called Petal Dance that can deal a lot of damage although confuses itself
after 3 turns.


After defeating Erika, you will get the Rainbowbadge! Now all traded Pokemon
up to Level 50 will obey you. You will also get TM19.

Now that we're done with the gym, it's time to leave, right? Nope, not yet.
Remember that Rocket that was in the Game Corner? Let's heal, stock up, and
go meet him. He will battle you holding a Level 20 Raticate and Zubat, jokes
compared to Erika's gym. After the battle, he will say that there isn't a
secret switch behind the poster he was standing next to and then disappear
into a wall. You know what to do. Press A on the poster to reveal a hidden
passage. Gasp! So that's where Team Rocket was so populated here.

It seems something is up here. Time to beat the Secret Rocket Base!


==============================================================================
                               ( a. Rocket Base )
==============================================================================

As soon as you enter the Rocket Base, head to the right and down, not the
stairs. Head to the left and fight the Rocket there holding two Level 21
Raticates. When you beat him, continue down to find an item ball containing
an Escape Rope. Now go down to Basement 2. Fight the Rocket as soon as you
see him holding 2 Level 17 Zubats, a Koffing, Grimer, and Raticate.

Now head down another floor to get to Basement 3. Fight the Rocket on the
lower path holding 2 Level 21 Machops and collect the TM21. Now head back and
to the right to the arrow maze. The maze looks mind boggling with so many
arrows, but it's not that difficult. There are arrows here representing the
direction you will be forced to go to until a different colored tile stops
you. From the side all the way to the right, take the down path to get a Rare
Candy. From there, your only option is to head back up so do so. This time,
start in the middle between the two arrows pointing away from each other. Go
left, walk down, and take the right arrow. You will have spun right past a
path. Go back and down that path and then walk left not taking any of those
arrows. Go down and there will be a second set of arrows. Take the one to the
top. As soon as you land there will be a Rocket waiting for you with a Level
20 Rattata, Raticate, and Drowzee. A pair of Dark Glasses will also be smack
in the middle of the path.

Head down the flight of stairs to Basement 4. Get the Ether on the table to
the left. Now go up, get TM49, and fight the Rocket member holding a Level 21
Koffing and Zubat. Beware, the Koffing can Selfdestruct for a lot of damage.
When you finish the battle, the Rocket will drop the Lift Key. Pick it up and
move head back to Basement Floor 2.

OK, now this is going to be a bit irritating. From the beginning, take the
second one from the top. Now go backwards. Go above the platform, down, then
up again over all the little things to get an X Special. Head back to where
you were before and get the Moon Stone blocking your way. Take the first
transporter you see going down which will take you next to the item ball
containing TM12. Go down the small path and take the first down path to the
right that you see. Now take the path directly to the left. Go down the path
and take the second path for a Super Potion or the first one if you just want
to get out of this puzzle.

Go up to the next room if you want to fight some trainers. There's a Hyper
Potion in the top lefthand corner. Fight the Rockets! The one to the left of
the exit has a 2 Level 19 Rattatas and Raticates. The one to the top has a
Level 20 Rattata and 2 Koffings.

Go back and take the elevator going to Floor 1. There will be a Rocket nearby.
He will have a Level 22 Grimer and Muk. Keep going up and you'll see that
there is another Rocket holding a Level 21 Drowzee and Machop. Hmm? Does this
place look familiar? Of course, it's near the exit! Go out and heal if you'd
like because we're going after the Head Honcho.

Go to the elevator and choose Floor 4. Pick up the Calcium on the table. Next,
head up the main path and beat his bodyguards who are guarding a closed door.
The guy on the left has a Level 23 Sandshrew, Ekans, and Sandslash. The guy on
the right has a Level 23 Sandshrew, Ekans, and Arbok. After you defeat both of
them, the door they were guarding will open allowing you to head to their
boss.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
GIOVANNI BATTLE 1
                   <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

BOSS: GIOVANNI
---------------------
| Pokemon     | Level |
|-------------|-------|
| Onix        | LV 25 |
| Rhyhorn     | LV 24 |
| Kangaskhan  | LV 29 |
---------------------

Not a gym battle but nearly as tough. Giovanni will use mostly Gound type
Pokemon. Onix will be bad as always with low attack power and Special Defense.
Rhyhorn is a new face, but not too challenging. It has high defense but can
be taken down the same way as Onix with weaknesses. It does have higher attack
although nothing challenging.

Kangaskhan is the main worry. It has unbelievably high Attack at this point in
game. A low damage attack can OHKO a weak Pokemon so use your strongest
Pokemon against it. If you have a fighting type, it would help. Sometimes it
will be really stupid though and use Tail Whip many times and then Bite which
effects Defense not Special Defense. If you catch it in a brain dead thing,
just attack it strong and fast. Its first move will always be Fake Out, so
send in a sacrificial dog if necessary since there's a very high chance of
inducing flinch.

After Giovanni disappears, he will leave behind a Silph Scope enabling you to
see ghosts. But where can we find ghosts? Remember Lavender Town? Yep. But
before you leave, make sure you pick up the special Balls in between the
bushes. We're also not finished with all the business in Celadon, so heal and
get ready for a few more battles.

From the Pokemon Center, head West onto the next Route. There will be the same
sleeping Pokemon that you saw blocking the path as in Vermilion City. Cut the
bush above the Pokemon and battle the Young Couple's Level 29 Rapidash and
Ninetales, both fully evolved Fire types that are very strong. Go past the
bulding to get Fly, an awesome HM that lets you go to any Pokemon Center you
have visited previously. BTW, ready for some Pokemon Catching?

ROUTE 16
_________________________________________________________
|WILD POKEMON | APPEARANCE RATE(FR/LG) | CATCH DIFFICULTY |
|---------------------------------------------------------|
|Rattata      |           30%          |       Easy       |
|Doduo        |           30%          |     Easy-Normal  |
|Raticate     |           10%          |      Normal      |
|Spearow      |           30%          |       Easy       |
---------------------------------------------------------

What you want here is Doduo, possibly Raticate. Decent training grounds for
those that are weak, mediocre otherwise. Head back to Celadon when you're
done.

==============================================================================
                              ( b. Pokemon Tower )
==============================================================================

Lavender Town revisited. Nice. With your new Flying abilities, you should be
able to get there in no time. Enter the Pokemon Tower. If you haven't beaten
Gary yet, head back to the Lavender Town section to see how to do so. Once
beaten, head up the stairs. Instead of scary ghosts appearing this time,
Gastlies appear. And yes, they are catchable and very good. They are
unaffected by Normal and Fighting type moves though so beware.

POKEMON TOWER
_________________________________________________________
|WILD POKEMON | APPEARANCE RATE(FR/LG) | CATCH DIFFICULTY |
|---------------------------------------------------------|
|Ghastly      |           90%          |       Easy       |
|Haunter      |            5%          |      Normal      |
|Cubone       |            5%          |      Normal      |
---------------------------------------------------------

After a while, you're going to get sick of seeing Gastlies as that's all that
will appear here. Ugh.

Head up from the staircase. Fight the Channeler holding a Level 23 Gastly and
pick up the Escape Rope above her. Go back and towards the bottom there will
be an opening. Go and fight the two Channelers, the bottom holding a Level 22
Gastly, the top a Level 24 Gastly. Go up the flight of stairs.

Fight some more Channelers. The first one at the top has a Level 22 Gastly and
a Level 23 Gastly, the bottom a Level 22 Gastly. Pick up the Super Ether in
the way and go around the wall to find a Great Ball. The Channeler at the end
has a Level 24 Gastly. Once you defeat her, advance to the next floor.

The first Channeler you meet on the path will have a Level 22 Gastly. You'll
notics that there is a whiteish spot nearby. That's a safe spot where all your
Pokemon will be totally healed as if in a Pokemon Center and no Pokemon will
appear. Also get the Cleanse Tag in the middle. Anyway, after healing fight
the Channelers. The one right of the safe spot will have a Level 23 Haunter.
The one to the left a Level 24 Gastly and the bottom a Level 22 Gastly. Get
the Nugget and head to the next floor.

Get the X Speed as soon as you come out and fight the Channeler with 3 Level
22 Gastlies. The one at the top has a Level 24 Gastly. Keep going to fight
another with a Level 24 Gastly. Now make sure you're fully healed and get the
Rare Candy.

Attempt to go up the staircase and something will stop you. It's a ghost...
Silph Scope will decipher it to be Marowak, the evolved form of Cubone! It
seems to be a ghost of a Pokemon Team Rocket has killed...This thing is no
joke at Level 30 with very high Attack and Defense. It's uncatchable and you
must defeat it. There's one thing though. It is a wild Pokemon, and you are
able to run if you are getting weak. Use Grass and Water type Pokemon to
quickly defeat it. Flying types are a good backup since it is immune to Ground
attacks. You must defeat Marowak to progress.

After you defeat Marowak, its soul will be settled. Walk up the staircase to
find 3 Team Rocket members who appear to be guarding something. Defeat all
of them.

Member 1: 2 Level 25 Zubats, 1 Golbat

Member 2: Level 25 Koffing and Drowzee

Member 3: 2 Level 23 Zubats, 1 Rattata, 1 Raticate

As you defeat each member, they will leave. There will be an old man there.
Talk to him and you will discover that he is Mr. Fuji and he takes you back
to his place. He thanks you for going up there to check on him and gives you
a Pokeflute which awakens sleeping Pokemon. Remember the sleeping Pokemon
blocking the road? We can wake them now! This also wakes up Pokemon from the
sleep status in battles which saves a bunch on Awakenings. But before you go,
make sure you go back through the tower. Yes, right back to where Mr. Fuji
was. If you use the Itemfinder there, you get a Soothe Bell!

Now, there are two paths that you can take to Fuchsia City. There's the long
path through Silence Bridge(Vermilion City) and Cycling Road(Celadon City).
Which way would you choose? I don't care. I have to FAQ both so I don't have
a choice. You should probably have a quick glance at both parts of the
walkthrough to make sure you don't miss any items you want though.

==============================================================================
                              ( c. Cycling Road )
==============================================================================

First, Fly to Celadon City. From there, head West to where you got Fly. (OMG,
you don't have Fly? Cut the bush instead and get it now!) There should be a
sleeping Pokemon. Be prepared with lots of Pokeballs and play the PokeFlute.
Mr. Sleepyhead will wake up, but in a grumpy mood! Ah well, tough. Let's catch
it :)
That's all the walktrough i have for now i will have more soon!!
