===============================================================================
 1.  Introduction
===============================================================================

For what seems like an age, Pokemon has been a major franchise and a license to
print money for Nintendo.  Considering the quality of the games has only
evolved over time, they deserve it.

Something to keep in mind is that this is a FAQ for Leaf Green ONLY.  It can be
used while playing Fire Red if you want to know where to go or what to do in a
particular dungeon, but due to the many specific Pokemon exclusive to Leaf
Green, if you're playing Fire Red, you'll likely run into wild Pokemon lists
that don't match up with what you're encountering.  So, basically, if you've
got Leaf Green, read on.  If it's Fire Red, read anyway, just don't count on us
for wild Pokemon data.

-Contacting us-

you can email relle at getrelle@yahoo.com, or me (Chris) at
bbeltchris92@netscape.net.  

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

===============================================================================
 2. Updates
===============================================================================

1.00 - Submitting as complete.  Woot.  I will be moving on to Baten
Kaitos, so I'll be leaving any future updates to my co-author, BostonFuse51.

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

1.01 - I added in a little update. In this update I added in a
new section (Section 1.a) and added in a new credit. I also took out some
unneeded information in the beginning about myself.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

===============================================================================
 3. Frequently Asked Questions
===============================================================================

For this section I will add in from time to time questions asked to me in e-
mails, and questions that are commonly asked regularly. More on this section is
soon to come.

Question: How much does Pokemon Fire Red/Leaf Green cost?

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

Answer: Pokemon Fire Red/Leaf Green costs anywhere from 25-35 dollars. (The
price depends upon the store you are buying from.)

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Question: How do I get into Saffron City?

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

Answer: It is different in FireRed/Leaf Green. Instead of giving a drink to the
guards you must go get the tea from the old lady in the first floor of the
Celadon Mansion.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Question: How come I can't use Mystery Gift?

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

Answer: This is different from the Mystery Gift in Gold/Silver/Crystal. Instead
of getting items and dolls you use this to get tickets for the Islands.
Nintendo will announce a way to get this soon.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Question: What is the best way to catch pokemon in the Safari Zone?

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

Answer: This one is tough. If you throw food at the wild pokemon, its chances
of staying and not fleeing increase. But doing this also decreases your chance
of catching the specific wild pokemon. If you throw a rock at the wild pokemon,
the pokemon's chance of escaping increases. However, its catching ratio will
slightly increase. So it depends on what you're more concerned about. The
pokemon running away, or you catching the pokemon.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Question: How can I get Espeon and Umbreon in this game?

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

Answer: Since there is no day or night in this game, you cannot get either of
them. To do this, trade your Eevee over to Ruby or Sapphire (you must fix the
network machine first), tame it until it happy enough, then when it is the
right time, evolve it when you want to (daytime for Espeon and night for
Umbreon). Then, trade it back.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Question: Is this game a new game or a remake of an older one?

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

Answer: Fire Red and Leaf Green are remakes of the original red, blue, and
green (Japanese) versions. It comes with better graphics, and much better
gameplay.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Question: Why can't enter Unknown Dungeon and fight the Elite Four again?

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

Answer: You need to complete the mystery island quest, and repair the machine
in the first island Pokemon Center.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Question: Is there any form of duplicating in this game?

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

Answer: No there is not any duplicating, or cloning in this game. And, if you
ask me I like it better the no cheat way.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Question: Can I get Mew or Celebi in this game?

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

Answer: No, you can not.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Question: What is the ultimate team?

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

Answer: There is none.  If you want the best team for you, I recommend choosing
your favorites and making this game a little bit of a challenge.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Question: I played the original red version a few years back and just picked
this up because I thought it was just a version of red for the new gameboys
with better graphics and gameplay.  It turns out there's all new races (steel,
dark, etc) and moves, the TMs/HMs are different and there's like 400 pokemon?

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

Answer: Yes all original red/blue/green players the times have changed.  There
are a bunch of pokemon that include a clash between all of the
gold/silver/crystal pokemon, and all of the original red/blue/green pokemon.
There are many new things and updates, but look more into the
gold/silver/crystal FAQs for more information on this.  After all it's where
the other half of the clash comes from!

Game Differences in Pokemon Fire Red/Leaf Green
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At the beginning, when you give oak the Pokedex, he also gives you 5
Pokeballs.  In the older versions, you had to do the parcel errand, and
then his assistant would give you the pokeballs.

Many of the Pokemon's locations have changed.

Prof. Oak's assistant gives you the Running Shoes when trying to leave Pewter
City, to route 3.

More Trainers in the routes and areas.

Same TM set from R/S (Besides HM 07)

With the new change, there are now move teachers that will teach your Pokemon
certain moves that used to me TM's (And some new ones)

The guards at the gates of the Saffron entrance no longer require a drink from
the machine in Celadon, but a new Pass that an old lady gives you in the place
the Gamefreak designers are in (The biggest building in Celadon besides the
Dept. Store), on the first floor.

Items are now sorted by type, like all the other games above the first 3.

Pokemon now can Hold items, and have Special Abilities, Like in R/S.

Once you complete the Cinibar Gym, you will be taken to the 3 new islands of
this game (Not in any relation with the Orange Islands in the Anime).

A few new item additions, including a Tutorial, TM case, and so on.

Two on Two battles

Ability to use the Wireless adapter to communicate and battle/trade
with others

Ability to Trade between Coliseum and R/S.

Moltres is now located on the first island, instead of Victory road.

New islands to explore, maybe more.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pokemon Natures

It isn't a fire red/leaf green difference, but it is different than the rest of
all of the pokemon games.  Here is a natures section.

 5.  Walkthrough
===============================================================================

First of all, turn on your game.  As soon as you press the Start button, for
your new file, you will be sucked into the Pokemon World, and the game.  The
following is quoted from the game until I say it no longer is just to give you
the whole opening and what to do.

The various buttons will be explained in the order of their importance.

The Directional Pad.  Availability north, south, east, west.  Description:

Moves the main character.  Also used to choose various data headings.

The A button.  Description:

Used to confirm a choice, check different things, chat, and scroll text.

The B button.  Description:

Used to exit, cancel a choice, and to control a mode.

The Start button.  Description:

Press this button to open the menu.

The Select/back button.  Description:

Used to shift items and to use a registered item.

The L trigger and The R trigger.  Description:

If you need some help playing the game or on how to do things, press the L, or
the R trigger.

In the world that you are about to enter, you will embark on a grand adventure
with you as the hero.  Speak to people, and check things wherever you go, be it
towns, roads, or even caves.  Gather information and hints from every source.
New paths will open to you by helping people in need, overcoming challenges,
and solving mysteries.  At times, you will be challenged by others, and also be
attacked by wild creatures.  Be brave, and keep pushing on.  Through your
adventure we hope that you will interact with all sorts of people and achieve
personal growth.  That, for now, is our biggest objective.  Press the A button,
and dare to let your Pokemon adventure begin.  (End of quote).  (Doesn't that
sound like you are about to go into war, that was soulful!) Press the A button,
and let's go begin our adventure!

As soon as you press the A button, this friendly grandfather figure will
appear.  He will talk to you about the amazing world of pokemon, and how some
trainers use pokemon to battle, and some keep them as pets.  After this, he
will ask your for the name you want to use and be called in the game, and also
your sex.  Shortly Following this, you will then have to name your main rival
of the game.  Immediately after this you are sucked into the game.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5a. Your Journey Begins
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you are warped into this new pokemon world, you will see that you are in
your room.  (In the upstairs area of your house).  Go exploring around the
room if you want to, but there isn't much to do.

In order to get going go to the northeast area of your screen, and room.  This,
is one of the many pc's in the game, boot it up by pressing the A button.  It
will say "Chris booted up the pc." "What would you like to do?" On this
incoming little box, the options:

Item Storage
Mailbox
Turn off

will appear.  Press the A button on the item storage option.  In the next
little box there are another 3 options.  They are:

Withdraw item
Deposit item
Cancel

Click withdraw item.  On the next page, click the A button on the option
potion, and you already have a free potion in your updated bag.  Press the B
button multiple times to exit out of your pc.  Go downstairs, onto the main
floor of your house.  Talk to your mom, and she will seem very depressed that
you are leaving on your journey, but supports you all the way.  (What a cool
mom!) She tells you that professor Oak is looking for you, and the fun starts.

Leave through the south of the house, and of your screen, and get your first
site of this fresh new world.  Start to go north to the opening in the path of
bushes/trees, and professor Oak will abruptly stop you.  He'll ramble again,
then give you a choice of three Pokemon to take with you.

Left
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bulbasaur
Easy to raise

Advantages: A great combination with a type of grass, and poison.  A sleeper,
and also has an underrated move: razor leaf.  Will be a huge advantage to your
first three gym battles.  (rock, water, and electric.) Grass is super affective
against each.

Disadvantages
An easy to raise Pokemon, which great for beginners in the pokemon world.
Bulbasaur is weak to 4/8 gyms throughout the game however which could be a
little blow to you.

Right
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Charmander
Raise with patience.

Advantages: Your only available fire Pokemon for a long time in the game.
That's basically it except for he has probably the best third evolution out of
all three starters.

Disadvantages: can't do hardly anything against the first two gyms.  Not a good
choice for beginners because of the first disadvantage.  A good choice however
for those who have played the game before, and know how to use and train their
pokemon correctly.

Middle
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Squirtle
One who is worth raising.

Advantages: The average Pokemon for beginners and veterans.  A great surfer to
have, and also, you won't have a chance to get this good of a water pokemon
until very late in the game.  Not a ton of weaknesses as a water type except
for the major two which are grass and electric.


Disadvantages: In my opinion, it is the hardest starter to raise to raise, even
though it is worth it in the long run because of its ability to surf, and all
and all because it is a water type.

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

For this file in the game, I chose to start off with Bulbasaur because of its
advantages in the first three gyms, and also, I like to use its sleep
powder/razor leaf combonation in the game.  However, there are other combos to
use with all three other starters, and you are free to choose which one you
want as the leader of your team (for now).

Right after you pick your partner in the adventure, the little complainer now
gets to pick his starter and teammate.  Your archrival, will pick the super
affective Pokemon to you.  So in simpler terms, your rival will pick:

Your pick                    His pick

Bulbasaur                    Charmander
Squirtle                      Bulbasaur
Charmander                   Squirtle

After both you and your rival pick your starters, and typically the leader of
your team, start walking south, towards the exit of the Pokemon lab.

But wait just one minute!  Your Rival comes storming down like he's already a
Pokemon Master, and will challenge you to an ever-famous Pokemon battle!  You
really have no say in your choice, because it automatically draws you into the
battle.  Let's show this guy who's boss!

In every battle, at the beginning of it, look at the opening.  For this battle,
the opening is "Rival <your rivals name here> would like to battle." This may
sound a bit corny, but it is really a great way to learn more about the trainer
you are about to face, and what type of trainer he or she may be.

In this battle, unlike the older versions of red, blue, and green, the game
will give you a tutorial about battling with your Pokemon.  I'll give you the
tutorial as a quote on quote because this is a key essential to your Pokemon
journey to know how to fight pokemon battles.

In the battle, the new help system will be introduced to you, first hand.  This
explains that when you are stuck or need help at some specific spot in the
game, click the L, or the R trigger.  Here you have all the help options
imaginable, and you can basically get information, or find out about anything
in the game.

Here we go.  The four options displayed to you are Fight, Bag, Pokemon, and
Run.  Well, in this situation, of course, you want to choose the fight option.
Select it, and you will see two attack options. (Later in the game, your
pokemon will learn new attacks and you will have to pick the four attacks best
suited for the pokemon or the "moveset.")  Regardless of your starter,
just use the first attack in the menu over and over to win.  If your attack
misses, or the rival's other starter gets more health than yours, you can use
that potion you got earlier to heal your hp (hit points) by 20.  Beating this
fairly easy opponent will earn you enough experience points to grow one level
no matter which starter you selected.

After the fun battle, you will earn $80 for your great batting.  Also, your
rival will storm off, and exit the room.  Dun...dun...dun.  Now you are free to
go, and start your Pokemon adventure...for real.  Exit the lab, and let's go!
Head north, out of your home called Pallet Town.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5b. To the First Badge
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Route 1
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now that you are free to leave the confines of Pallet town, start heading north
out of the city, and into route one.  In the game, there are special areas,
like Mt. Moon, and Diglet's cave.  There are also many cities, and towns in the
game.  The last area, are routes.  Routes are places in between towns, and
special areas.  This is the first route in the way of your journey.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pokemon common on route 1
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pidgey Lv's 2-4

A Pokemon with a great third evolutional stage.

Advantages: Pidgey is one of the first Pokemon you will encounter on your
pokemon adventure.  It is a flying Pokemon, which will be a benefit in the
later, and earlier parts of the game.  an get some great attacks later on.

Disadvantages: You can't catch many pokemon yet.  These guys have really low
levels, and you can't get much EXP or higher-levels out of the pokemon you
battle with to raise them up.  This part of the game can go slower because you
aren't taking in those huge EXP boosts, but then again, you only need a little
big of EXP to grow a level this early in the game.

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

Rattata Lv's 2-4

A Pokemon with some super duper attacks at an early level.

Advantage: Well this isn't a very detailed advantages section, but Rattata, is
just an average Pokemon with some great attacks early on.  Its attacks seem to
become less powerful as it grows in levels.

Disadvantage: A normal type Pokemon, isn't the best type in my opinion because
normal type Pokemon do not have huge advantages, or disadvantages over other
certain types of Pokemon.  They're squeezed in the middle!

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

So, now that I have explained what to expect, all pokemon on the route, and how
they shape up so now let's cross it, shall we?

Well, this one is basically easy to figure out, even for you beginners out
there.  All that you have to do is continue heading north training up your
starter.  You will of course run into some Pidgeys, and Rattatas.  By the time
you are out of route one, the best hope is for your starter to be at least at
level 8-10.  In order to find wild Pokemon, search in the grass.  If you start
to run low on hp (hit points), you have two options.  You can go north into
Viridian City, and get your Pokemon healed fully...for free at the Pokemon
center, or you can use a potion that you have (if you didn't use it in the
rival battle.)  Go to the first guy you come to on route one, and he'll give
you a free sample from the mart which is a potion.  (So either way, you'll have
one.)

So after leveling up, and then healing, and doing it all over again, for a
specific number of times, go up to your first town...Viridian City.  When you
first get here, go to the Pokemon Center.  Get your Pokemon healed by talking
to Nurse Joy.  (The woman behind the counter in the north of the room.)  She
will talk to you, and then after you say yes, she will give your Pokemon back t
you...fully healed.

 Viridian City
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In Viridian City, there are many beautiful sights for your eyes to feast upon.
In this town there is a Pokemon Gym, but you are unable to get in because the
door is locked.  (More on this is later in the in the walkthrough.) Some other
sights are the Pokemon Center where you go to get your team healed, the town
mart, where many items to help you along your journey are sold, (do not go
there yet.) A house where a person is trying to memorize his notes.  (not
important in the most.) A house above the last house you went to where the
note memorizing is taking place,  and a guy lying down blocking your way to
the north gate of the town.

First things first however.  Go to the west side of Viridian City into a
fairly open area.  There is a boy/man here, but you do not need to talk to
him.  Now do NOT go all the way to the west.  Here, there is an opening to the
north.  Go through the tiny crack that you can just barley fit through.  Go
north, continuing up through it then go directly east when you can not go north
any more.  You will see a little tree type thingy.  Go to the tree, and a poke
ball will stop you from going any further.  Click the A button, and that item
is yours.  (It is a potion.) This is how you pick up items.  (Note:  Pick up
items by going up to them and pressing the A button.)

Go back down to the flat, open area that you were just in after you get your
free potion.  Here, you will face your first crossroad in the game.  You can
either go east to fight your Rival, or you could go west and not.  But before
just floundering east you must know that if you fight your rival now, you
cannot fight him in the future when you come back to Viridian City.  (I
wouldn't fight him because later in the game, he'll have better pokemon and
much more EXP experience points.)  So in my opinion I would not fight
him now, and choose to save it for later when he has some much better Pokemon.
Of course, you can do whatever you want...it is your file, and your game.

So, coming back into Viridian You might want to re-heal your Pokemon before
You do anything more in here, or in the game.  After healing or doing more
exploring, head towards the northwest of the Viridian City.  But wait just one
darn minute.  This huge guy is lying at a horizontal angle blocking you from
moving on going north!  Talk to the guy, and some of the people around him, and
they will claim that this dude always gets like that until he gets his morning
coffee.  (Maybe he should try decaf.) Well of course we haven't done squat in
the game yet so never fear...the mart is here!

That's right, now is your chance to take a little visit to Viridian City's
mart.  Walk into the building that says "Mart", and you will be abruptly
brought in with the guy asking the Mart Clerk: "Are you from Pallet town?"
You can't answer this and automatically the guy will ask you to do this deed
for him.  He claims that Professor Oak (the grandfather figure professor in the
beginning of the game) ordered this parcel, and he asks you to take it to him.
Doing this however will get that bloody coffee addict out of the way!  (Note:
You must do this to move on in the game.)

 Back to Pallet Town
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, once you receive Oak's parcel, go all the way back to Pallet town going
south, taking whichever route you want.  As soon as you get back don't stop for
anything, and go directly to Professor Oak's lab.  Just walk right on in, and
walk right on up, and talk to him.  After all the talking is done, and you give
Oak the parcel, you are free to go.

All right, after all of this walking, we're geared up, and ready to go.  Let's
head up north once again back to Viridian City.

 Back to Viridian City
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Head Back North to Viridian City.  You have nothing more to do here, so head
north wear the horizontal guy was blocking the way once before.  He'll explain
that he has had his coffee.  After going through a fairly short conversation
with the guy, he will explain how to catch Pokemon.  Watch this little
tutorial, because it will help you to gain success in the game.  (You need to
know how to catch pokemon.)  After this, you can now go north. In this little
patch of grass you can catch a different assortment of wild Pokemon.  These
would be Rattata, Caterpie (a weak bug pokemon), and once in a while a Pidgey.
I decided here to catch a wild Pidgey.  Even though pidgeys might seem week,
their third evolutional stage (Pidgeot) is really strong with some decent stats
and some good moves.  He is also a flyer, which will help you later on.  Go all
the way until you see this building. Go north, and enter through it, and on the
other side of the building you will come face to face with...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4b-1.Viridian Forest
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes, we have finally made it to the Viridian Forest!  Well without any further
ado, let's get started shall we?  When you walk in, there is a man in front of
a rather large tree.  You can talk to him if you would like but he won't want
to battle you, he will just tell you the Viridian forest is filled with bugs.
After you finish talking to him go to the WEST of the tree.

                        Western Side of Viridian Forest
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There is not much to do on the west side of the Viridian Forest.  You can go
northwest, into a fairly large patch of grass, and in there you can get
yourself a poke ball.  (Pick up the item by going up to it, and pressing the A
button.)  That's about it unless you think a certain Pokemon is common in that
area and want to stay around trying to catch it.  If not go back to the big
tree and head on over to the EAST side of Viridian Forest!

                        Eastern Side of Viridian Forest
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Going as far east possible, you have to go into the large patch of grass.  In
the grass, you will find yet another potion.  Start to head north of the
Viridian Forest.  Probably without even noticing it you'll run into your very
first trainer!

Trainers are fellow Pokemon owners.  They raise their Pokemon, and always like
to battle them.  Some of them might also even keep their Pokemon as pets!
Some trainers are easier than other trainers, but do not worry, that's what I
am here for.  Your first trainer is:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Bug Catcher Rick (Payoff: $65)

Pokemon (Level)   Type             Weakness(es)                            EXP
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Weedle   (6)      Bug/Poison       Fire, Flying, Ground, Psychic, Rock     74
Caterpie (6)      Bug              Fire, Flying, Rock                      72

After beating "Bug Catcher Rick," keep heading on to the north of Viridian
Forest through the grass, fighting wild Pokemon.  Soon enough, you will bump
right into your next trainer.

Bug Catcher Doug (Payoff: $84)

Pokemon (Level)   Type             Weakness(es)                            EXP
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Weedle (7)        Bug/Poison       Fire, Flying, Ground, Psychic, Rock     78
Kakuna (7)        Bug/Poison       Fire, Flying, Ground, Psychic, Rock     168
Weedle (7)        Bug/Poison       Fire, Flying, Ground, Psychic, Rock     78


After beating "Bug Catcher Doug," move onto the north again and you will find
yourself a free antidote.  These items cure poisons that other pokemon give you
by using moves such as poison sting.  If you continue going north, you will run
into some trees.  Move to the west of these, then north again and you will find
your next trainer.

Bug Catcher Anthony (Payoff: $96)

Pokemon (Level)   Type             Weakness(es)                            EXP
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Caterpie (7)      Bug              Fire, Flying, Rock                      78
Caterpie (8)      Bug              Fire, Flying, Rock                      84


After beating "Bug Catcher Anthony," walk around him, and continue on your
merry way westward.  When you cannot go west anymore (a barrier of trees,
blocking your way just like last time,) start heading south.  It almost
feels closed in because you are walking between two rows of trees.  Now
when you get down go west then north.  It is pretty simple, all you're doing
is going where your only option is to go.  When you finish heading north, you
will find yourself another trainer.

Bug Catcher Charlie (Payoff: $84)

Pokemon (Level)   Type             Weakness(es)                            EXP
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Metapod  (7)      Bug/Poison       Fire, Flying, Ground, Psychic, Rock     108
Caterpie (7)      Bug              Fire, Flying, Rock                      156
Metapod  (7)      Bug/Poison       Fire, Flying, Ground, Psychic, Rock     108


After beating "Bug Catcher Charlie," Continue on your way going south.  At the
point where you can no longer go south anymore, head east, and then up to the
northern tip of the forest.  This is the last run on your way to the exit, so 
it is bound to be filled with tough trainers, with tough Pokemon.  If your 
Pokemon are/is running low on hit points (your health,) you might want to be 
thinking about using a potion or another healing item, preparing for your 
hardest fight yet.  If you don't have enough, you might want to go back to the 
Viridian Pokemon Center.  Go a trifle north you will run into...

Bug Catcher Sammy (Payoff: $108)

Pokemon (Level)   Type             Weakness(es)                            EXP
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Weedle (9)        Bug/Poison       Fire, Flying, Ground, Psychic, Rock     99
Weedle (9)        Bug/Poison       Fire, Flying, Ground, Psychic, Rock     99

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After beating "Bug Catcher Sammy," you are free to leave the confines of
Viridian Forest.  This is one of my favorite areas in the game, and it feels
sad to leave, but it must be done!  Walk on north out of the forest, go to the
north exit of the building, and when you get out, may I be the first to welcome
you to Pewter City.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4b-2. Pewter City and Brock
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(In Pewter City, there aren't many places to catch wild Pokemon in the Route
4/Mt.Moon area so don't look forward to go on a Pokemon catching spree.)

As soon as you get to Pewter City please, do yourself a favor, and heal your
Pokemon at the Pokemon Center here.  You deserve it after all those tough
battles in the Viridian Forest.  After healing, head out and get your first
real view at Pewter City.  There is not much to do in Pewter City at this point
in the game.  So why don't we get ready to rumble?  If you started with a
charmander, and have no superior moves that are affective against rock, (which
is Brock the gym leader's favorite type of pokemon, and the type of pokemon he
will use in his pokemon gym,) so I suggest you stock up on potions and healing
items.  In order to complete the game, you need to get all of the 8 pokemon
badges.  You can get these by going into a Pokemon Gym, and beating the gym
leader there.

After you prepare for your first gym fight, head to the northwest of the city.
Do not go to far north though, because you won't find the Pewter City gym.  The
Pokemon Gym is almost right above the poke center.  Of course you can't get in
from the south, so go in from the north direction.  It is hard to understand,
but in the game it is much simpler than I think I make it up to be.  In the 
gym, there is one trainer before the big boy "Brock."  Brock if you haven't 
already guessed is the gym leader.  The trainer before Brock's status is...

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Camper Liam (Payoff: $220)

Pokemon (Level)   Type             Weakness(es)                            EXP
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Geodude   (10)    Rock/Ground      Fight, Steel, Grass 4x, Water 4x,       182
                                   Ice, Ground
Sandshrew (11)    Ground           Grass, Water, Ice                       218

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After beating "Camper Liam, it is time for your first Gym battle.  If Liam got
you down even one Hit Point you should still heal no matter what your Pokemon
are.  Brock is after all a very tough first gym trainer after all.  He isn't
some kiddy piece of crap as in most video games.  After healing, head on up to
the gym once again and fight your first gym trainer.

For all gym leaders I will do a little more background information then on just
plain, regular trainers.

==================================
Gym Leader Brock (Payoff: $1440)
==================================

Gym Leader Brock's status
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gym Leader Brock's Favorite type of Pokemon- Rock Pokemon

Gym Leader Brock's Least Favorite type of Pokemon- Water Pokemon

Brock's likes- Rock Pokemon, Girls (In particular: Nurse Joy, and Officer
Jenny) and Breeding Pokemon (He is after all a Pokemon breeder!)

Brocks Dislikes- Water Pokemon, and also trainers who treat their Pokemon
wrongly.)

Strategy- Use some rock hard defense, using etiquette attack moves in order to
beat the opponent.

Rewards from Gym Leader Brock- a wad of dough ($1440, your first ever badge
(Boulderbadge) TM39 (Rock Tomb) TM-Rod.

Pokemon- Gym Leader Brock has two Pokemon.  (See below)

Gym Leader Brock

Pokemon (Level)   Type             Weakness(es)                            EXP
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Geodude (12)      Rock/Ground      Fight, Steel, Grass 4x, Water 4x,       218
                                   Ice, Ground
Onix    (14)      Rock/Ground      Fight, Steel, Grass 4x, Water 4x,       324
                                   Ice, Ground

That's right, you have just beaten "Gym Leader Brock!"  After beating him, you
will receive Rock Tomb.  (Rock Tomb is one of the many TMs in the game.  TMs
are attack moves that you can teach your pokemon artificially, and not just
have them learn it.  Pokemon can't learn every TM however.)  You might have
seen Brock's Onix use this Tm but if not it buries a Pokemon in rocks!  It is
a great TM for this point in the game, and is especially great against fire
Pokemon.

So, after getting over your utter excitement of beating Brock, it's time to
move on to a further part in the game.  So once you beat him, walk out of
the Pokemon Gym, and now you are officially...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4c. Cerulean Bound!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So after beating Brock, walk out of the gym into some fresh air.  Go back to
The Pokemon Center and heal your party up for the challenges that are sure to
lay ahead.  After healing, you will want to go to around the middle of the city
and head towards the eastern side of Pewter City.

Go here, and you will meet Professor Oak's aid again.  Instead of doing
something for him he will do you a favor right here.  He will give you Running
Shoes.  These are shoes that when you hold down the B button will make you run
at a very quick speed.  After Oak's aid leaves continue on east.

Hear there is an opening, go through it and you will come to a line of
trainers.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After beating the immense row of fellow Pokemon trainers, you are going want to
walk west.  Here is a large patch of grass with a person inside of it.  You can
talk to him but all he will tell you is that he's a wimp, and he is afraid of
Mt. Moon!  Oh well, everyone gets scared at one point in another of their life.
So continue north onto Route 4!

Route 4
--------

There is not too much on this route.  Continue north up onto a Pokemon Center.
Go in the poke center, and heal your Pokemon after those utterly vicious
battles.  In the Pokemon Center you can talk to some other people, and the
fisherman at the top left of the poke center will offer you a Magikarp (a
really bad Pokemon that's easy to catch) for just five hundred dollars.
(Yahoo!) (Sarcasm) If you want to get Magikarp at this time you do not have
to, but he does evolve into Gyarados who has some very good attacks and
status, but a very low Special Attack.  If you do want to raise him, I am
warning you now that it is very difficult to raise.

After making your not so tough decision, it is time folks.  Let's go to Mt.
Moon, shall we?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4c-1. Mount Moon
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wild Pokemon in Mt. Moon:

Paris Lvs.???  (%4 appearance ratio)
-----------------------------------

A great sleeper

Advantages: Paris is a great sleeper, which will help you later on in the game.
Paris is also a grass, and poison Pokemon allowing it to have any one of those
attacks.

Disadvantages: Paris, and his later evolved form (Parisect) don't have the
sharpest status in the shed if you know what I mean.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Geodude Lvs.???  (%15 appearance ratio)
--------------------------------------

Defense Galore

Advantages: Geodude has some nasty defense, which rids opponents of hit points
in a snap.  All of Geodude's evolved forms have some great status.  (instead of
speed.)

Disadvantages: Geodude is a rock type, which leads to many disadvantages on
fellow Pokemon.  Geodude, and his family have very low speed.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sandshrew Lvs.???  (%10 appearance ratio)
----------------------------------------

Ground Pound!

Advantages: Sandshrew is a ground type, meaning it has hardly any weaknesses to
fellow Pokemon.  Its evolved form, Sandslash, is a great ground-type to have.

Disadvantage: Sandshrew does have one big weakness, which is dreaded water
moves.  Even though this is true Sandshrew still had very little disadvantages.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Clefairy Lvs.???  (%1 appearance ratio)
--------------------------------------

Metronome fun

Advantages: Clefairy is a normal Pokemon allowing not many weaknesses against
fellow Pokemon.  Clefairy is also a sleeper, which will help you further in the
game.  Clefairy, and Clefable both have average status.

Disadvantages: Hm..  Clefairy and Clefable both aren't the powerhouse your team
is looking for (Typically a Dragonite or other Pokemon with kick butt status.
Clefairy, and Clefable both don't have the best status but at least it is
average.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Zubat Lvs.???  (%70 appearance ratio)
------------------------------------

A pestering bloodsucker

Advantages: Zubat has an amazing third evolutional stage (Crobat) That's about
it folks, they have average status and are an average family.


Disadvantages: Zubat is part flying, which leads to many disadvantages to other
Pokemon.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As you walk into Mt.Moon, go to the northern direction of the mountain.  There

will be a trainer next to a sign that says "Beware Zubat is a bloodsucker!"
After taking a look at the sign fight the trainer that is next to it.

After you beat this Super Nerd (hardest trainer in Mt.Moon) you get to choose
your own fossil!  You can either choose the Dome, or the Helix fossil.  I chose 
the Dome fossil because, in my opinion, its the better choice.  This is because 
you get Kabuto later in the game.  If you choose the Helix fossil, you will 
receive an Omanyte later in the game.

After both of you choose your fossils it's time to get out of Mt. Moon.  But
before we do, collect the Antidote in front of the ladder.

In this route there is not too much to do.  The main things available for you

These TM's, and they will teach it to that specific Pokemon.  The one, and only 
item you will find moving east is TM05.  TM05 contains Roar.  Roar makes a foe
Switch out with an ally.  In the wild, the battle ends.  After getting these 
TM's, go south to my favorite city.

After beating the final trainer on the long journey on and towards the
northeast of the Nugget Bridge, go to the house just to the right of you.  In
here is the ever-famous...guy in a Pokemon suit?  No, this can't be right.
Bill isn't half-Pokemon half-man!  Suddenly Bill will talk to you claiming that

he was experimenting with Pokemon, and now he is stuck in this costume.  He
needs you to do a favor.  He will tell you to hit the computer when he goes in
the teleporter.  As soon as he goes in go over to the computer and tap the A
button a few times over, and a new person will come out on the opposite end of
the teleporter.

This new person is Bill.  He will thank you so much and will let you use his PC
system.  Now when you go to deposit and withdraw Pokemon in the poke center,
instead of saying "Someone's PC" it will say Bill's PC.

Giving even more thanks, Bill will rummage around in his clothes looking for
something.  Out comes what looks like a ticket of some sort.  Turns out, this
ticket is an SS Anne ticket.  It will enable you to board a ship in Vermillion
City.

After your meeting with Bill, head back down to Cerulean city, either going
reverse, or taking the shortcut south of Bill's house.  In order to take this
shortcut, you have to go southwest of Bill's house.

go and fight Misty.

(In Vermillion City the only places to catch wild Pokemon are inside of
Digglet's Cave, and also east of the city.)

That's right you have just entered Vermillion City!  As soon as you walk in, go
to heal your team.  Right after that, save your file so you do not have to
fight all of these trainers over again.

Okay, let's get down to business!  Go to the house just west of the Pokemon
center, and get the old rod.  With this rod you can go fishing in almost any
area of water, but you won't find anything worthwhile.  (I think but I am not
sure the only Pokemon you can find with the Old Rod is Magikarp.

After you get the Old Rod, go south of Vermillion City.  After going a tad
south go west where there are two houses.  The house on the right has one
little midget inside it.  He'll ask you if you have a Spearow.  Then he will 
ask you if you would like to trade it for his Farfetch'd.  If you have a 
Spearow go ahead and trade it.  It will get you another Pokemon caught on your 
dex, and another Pokemon seen on your dex.  If not you can always come back 
later.

The house on the left has basically a Pokemon club inside of it.  Talk to the
old man on the chair to the left.  When he asks you if you have come to hear
about his collection of Pokemon say yes.  He will go on and on about his
Rapidash and then finish.  Because he has kept you so long, he will give you a
Bike Voucher.  Go all the way back to Cerulean City, and trade it in the bike
shop for your very own bike.  When you get your bike go to it on the Key items
slot and press register.  Now whenever you want to go cycling press select, and
bam your on your bike.  Pretty neat huh?

When you get back to Vermillion City, go west and catch over 10 types of
Pokemon.  (Look later in the guide) While doing this fight all of the trainers
over there.  Also get the Awakening toward the north.

After fighting all of the trainers west of Vermillion City, go heal your
Pokemon and come back to that cave, and enter!...

Digglet's Cave

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

(THIS IS ALL AFTER YOU BEAT THE SS. Anne!)

In this cave the only wild Pokemon are Digglet, and Dugtrio.  Head towards the
end of the cave, and you will come out in Viridian City.  Go down to the big
house, and you will get Flash.  Flash is an HM that lights cave and in battle,
lowers opponent's accuracy.  (You'll need this gem for Rock Tunnel.)

Back to Vermillion City
------------------------

Back here, go south to the dock.  That's right you have just guest it this
place is where the SS.Anne lies!  Board the ship, and get ready to fight,
fight, fight!

Now that you have just beaten ALMOST ALL of the trainers onboard the SS.Anne,
go to the room directly below the area where you came in.  There is a lady
here.  If you talk to her she will give you and your Pokemon a nap.  (Healing
your Pokemon.) After that follow these directions:

Go left and up the big escalator.
Go south, then make a sharp turn right.
Go all the way right and then turn up where you will find none other than:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After beating your Rival, go up the big escalator directly north of you.  When
you get up here, you will find the captain getting sick.  Go up to him, and you
will automatically starry rubbing his back.  He will (all of a sudden) feel
better, and for your help give you HM01, which contains cut.  Cut is used to
slice down trees and reduce grass areas.  It is also a fairly strong move that
can be used inside of battle.

The items that were scattered throughout random rooms were:

TM31 - Brick Break
Stardust
X Attack
Super Potion
Ether
TM44 - Rest

Now that you have beaten the SS.Anne, get off the gosh darn ship!  You will
watch as the ship sails away from you slowly.  After it is completely gone go
back and heal in Vermillion City.  After you get your newly healed party, teach
one of them the HM the captain gave you.  Go to the southwest corner of
Vermillion City.  Here go up to the tree, and press the A button, keep on
clicking it until the Pokemon you taught cut to cuts the tree down.  This is
called cutting down a tree.  In this new area, there smack in the middle is the
Vermillion Gym!

The trainers before Surge are as follows:

A lot of people consider this gym to be really hard.  I mean in order to get to
Blaine.  They really are making a mountain out of mold.  Just got up to a
garbage can and press A when it says there is a switch under it, go to the can
to the side of it.  If there are two sides to it (Like if the can was in the
middle) just pick one.  Sometimes it will say something like I am sorry the
switches have been reset or something like that.  So just keep doing it over
again!  It should take you anywhere from 1-3 times to open up into Surges area,
and when it does be ready to fight him!

Gym Leader Surge's Favorite type of Pokemon- electric Pokemon

Gym Leader Surge's Least Favorite type of Pokemon- probably ground

(sorry, but I have to put this in there from AstralFire's guide.)

LT.Surge likes- War films, G.I.  Joe, Pro Wrestling

LT.Surge dislikes- Ballet

Surge strategy- Surge doesn't really have a strategy.  Alls he does is try to
get you paralyzed then attack you because of your slower speed.  Wait a minute,
that is a strategy.  Oh well...

Rewards from Gym Trainer Surge- Some average EXP, not as great as Misty, 2,400
dollars, your third badge (Thunderbadge), and TM.34, which is shock wave.
Shock Wave is a little like Thundershock.  Not that good, or that bad.  Also
beating LT.Surge will raise your Pokemon's speed.

Pokemon- Gym Leader Surge has three Pokemon (see below)

 5d-2. Returning Home Through the Rock Tunnel

After you beat Surge, go to the pokecenter and heal your Pokemon.  Next, go out
of Vermillion City, by heading back to Cerulean.  Right before you go back
take the detour to the right.  Here there will be a tree.  Cut it down into the
new area.

In the new area, fight all the trainers going west and then south to that big
Tunnel/Cave.  The trainers in this area are...

 5e. Spooky Town, Otherwise Known as Lavender

(In Lavender Town, the only place where you can catch wild Pokemon is south of
Lavender Town.  There is also west of Lavender Town.

That's right you have just entered Lavender Town.  As soon as you get in heal
your Pokemon.  The Pokemon Tower here is a dangerous place, as it's occupied
by ghosts you can't identify and fight.  So, forget it for now.

Now it is time to move on start heading west of Lavender town where you will
find a lot of trainers.

north then west, and you will arrive at...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5f.  Celadon City, the Shopping Mecca
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The first thing you will want to do in Celadon City is to go heal your Pokemon.
Next go behind the Pokecenter and head west when you see an opening in the
building, go in.  Keep climbing up floors until you find a table with a Pokemon
on it the Pokemon is Eevee.  Eevee isn't a really good Pokemon but you can
evolve it into Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon which are really good Pokemon.

After getting Eeveee, you might want to take a visit to the Department store.
The items there are...

Buy things and get out.  Enter the building to the right.

South of the Game Corner is a row of buildings.  Enter the leftmost building
and talk to the man in the upper left corner.  He'll give you a coin case.

After you get your coin case you can visit the Celadon Game corner.  You can
buy coins, or you can gamble for them.

After this, go to the house two houses to the right of the Department Store.
Talk to the old woman and get the tea.  When you get it, you can now pass
through houses with guards in them.

Now it's time for Erika!

Go south towards the east, where there is a tree.  Cut it down then continue
going west.  Soon you will come upon a gym.  Which is Erika's gym of course.

Gym Leader Erika's Favorite type of Pokemon- electric Pokemon

Gym Leader Erika's Least Favorite type of Pokemon- Fire

Erika likes- Using an over amount of Perfume, and of course nice aromas

LT.Surge dislikes- Mean boys, and fire/bug Pokemon

Erika's strategy- Try to poison, paralyze, and put your Pokemon to sleep then
easily kill you with her above average attacks.

Rewards from Gym Leader Erika- A boatload of EXP, 2900 dollars, a Rainbow Badge
(your fourth badge), and TM19, which is Giga Drain.  It sucks life out of your
opponent's Pokemon, and improves your HP.

best is a good fire-type, but any will do, really.  The only thing hard about

Your first stop is the game corner.  If you haven't already, snag the Coin Case
from the man in the bar (he's in the upper left corner) so you can hold coins
and play the slots.  When you're ready, talk to the Rocket standing in front of
the poster.  Battle and win!

Now then, examine the poster to open up a staircase leading into the
Underground Rocket Hideout.  First go left and hug the upper wall to avoid 
being sighted by the first Rocket.  Walk around him and go south to get an 
Escape Rope from the table, then battle the nearby Rocket.  Afterwards, head to 
the right to find another Rocket to beat up.

Now, after defeating these two it seems there isn't anything worthwhile on this
floor.  Not right now, anyway.  Take the stairs going down and hug the lower
wall to stay out of sight of the Grunt to the left until you're ready to fight
him.  Even if you should get caught, he's a pushover with weak Pokemon.

Afterwards, go left to the conveyor arrows and ride the bottom one.  After you
stop, walk back right, past all the other arrows and snag an X Speed.  Go back
to where you were dropped off on the light-colored square and take the Moon
Stone.  Now ride the lower >> conveyor to stop near a TM12.  Now go directly
right and take the conveyor pointing down toward the light metal floor.  Go
directly right again, then left, and you should be in the lower right corner of
this little maze.  From here, go down to the two << conveyors (one right on top
of the other) and take the lower one to reach a Super Potion.  First go up and
ride either conveyor back to the main part of the maze, then go right and down
and ride the right down-pointing conveyor.  Take two steps left, and you should
be back to the two << conveyors that got you the Super Potion.  Now take the
higher of the two conveyors there, then ride the conveyor pointing right.
You'll end up in a new area with a staircase and an elevator, but you can't use
the elevator quite yet.  Instead, take the stairs.

Here, there are two Rocket Grunts and one Hyper Potion in the upper left corner
of the room.  You can deal with the Grunts or just walk past them, but it's
advisable to fight them.  The one near the top of the room is listed first.

As you can see, the first requires a psychic type, and if you happen to have a
fighting type for the second, you'll breeze through this.  Unfortunately,
there's nothing here beyond one of the Rockets telling you to take the elevator
to see the boss, except you don't have the key yet.  In due time...

Go back down the stairs and return through the conveyor maze to the first part
of B2F.  Take the stairs going down to reach B3F.  This floor has no obvious
stairs going deeper into the compound, but it does have a couple of Rockets,
the second one listed being the one in the conveyor maze.  The first, which is
hanging around south of the stairs, just uses a pair of Machops and is guarding
TM21, Frustration.

Now go into the conveyor maze.  There should be two conveyors pointing in
opposite directions: <<  >>.  Take the right one first, then take the conveyor
pointing downward to have access to some Rare Candy.  Now return to the first
intersection and take the conveyor going left.  Two steps down gets you to a
metal floor, and from there, go down and left (don't step on any conveyors!)
till you reach a sort of staircase of right-pointing conveyors.  Take the
second one from the bottom to be tossed right in sight of another Rocket Grunt.
Fortunately, it seems he's blind as a bat and will let you walk right past him
if you want.  Fight him anyway.  His Drowzee would ordinarily be a pain, it
being a psychic-type, but its level is rather low, so it's not that tough.

When you've finished off the second Grunt, go down and right to get the

to snag a Max Ether, then follow the path up to a TM49 (Snatch) and a lone
Rocket.  Send him packing!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The one thing that separates this Grunt from all the others is that he will
drop the Lift Key, which will allow you to use the elevator!  Hurray!
Unfortunately, you'll have to return to B2F and go through the conveyor maze
there once more to reach the elevator for your own use.  Poo.  Anyway, once
you reach the elevator (see the directions above if you don't know how to get
through the conveyor maze) go to B1F first.  You'll see a lonely Rocket who
needs a beating.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Now, beating him doesn't get you anything special...or does it?  Head up, and
the door that was blocking the elevator when you first came in has been
removed.  You can now leave this place more easily if you need to go to the 
Pokemon Center and heal up.  Otherwise, go back on the elevator and go down to 
B4F.  Upon landing, go left for a Calcium tab, then up to find a pair of Grunts 
protecting the boss's door.  Better fight them both.  Listed from left to 
right...

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The one on the left just requires a water or grass type to waste his pair of
ground types.  The Ekans in the middle may break your momentum and require you
to switch out for a ground or psychic type, but the Sandslash at the end is the
only real trouble.  If you don't have a water or grass type (for whatever
reason) you'll likely take a while wearing down its high defense.  The Grunt on
the right has mainly weak Pokemon, even in his Arbok.  One good psychic type
will defeat him.  Beating both will unlock the door and give you access to the
boss: Giovanni!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

He starts out with an Onix, so having a Pokemon to exploit its many weaknesses
would be advisable.  While it's half ground type, it's also half rock, so it
ends up being weak against ground itself.  If you have a Pokemon with Dig, use
it for an easy victory.  The same goes for Rhyhorn and its silly dual-types.
Kangaskhan is a tough cookie, it being of high level, normal type, and having
such moves as Mega Punch and others that cause lots of damage real quick-like.
A fighting type will plow through all three of Giovanni's Pokemon, but if you
don't have one, use an electric-type or whatever Pokemon has Thunder Wave to
paralyze Kangaskhan, then take your heaviest-hitter to knock it out for the
count!

After a victory, speak to Giovanni and he'll vanish, leaving the Silph Scope
behind.  Now you can identify the ghosts in Lavender Town's tower of creepy
mist.  Before leaving Celadon, make sure you go to the Celadon Mansion and ask
the old lady there for some Tea to give to the border guards.  Also make sure
you've gotten everything you need from the Game Corner, then get ready to head
out.

the Snorlax resting peacefully nearby, but there's nothing you can do about it
now, so just go up to the two trainers by the grass.  This is a dual battle, so
prepare appropriately.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Both use fire types, so just make sure you have at least one Pokemon to exploit
one of their weaknesses and you'll be fine.  When they're defeated, (or if you
ignored them) go into the guardhouse and out the left end to find a house.  Go
inside and speak to the woman there to get HM02, Fly!  Yippee-skippee!  Teach
it to a flying-type if you've got one (Pidgeotto, perhaps?) and fly back to
Lavender Town.  If you're not flying, you can just return via the underground
tunnel.

Anyway, back in Lavender Town, head into the Pokemon Tower.  Go up to the third
floor, where the fog suddenly becomes thick.  There are three trainers here,
the one topside protecting an Escape Rope, the middle and bottom ones guarding
the stairs up.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

While pure Ghost types are annoying to fight due to their immunity to physical
attacks, the ones found in the tower are half poison, meaning they have a big
vulnerability to psychic types, and they can typically be taken out in one hit
by a decent fire or electric move like Thunderbolt or Flamethrower.  It's best
to take them out quickly, as they can use such moves as Curse to hurt your
Pokemon over time, or Confuse Ray, which is always a pain.  After the Rocket
base and the Celadon gym, you should be strong enough to accomplish a OHKO on
these Pokemon.  Waste all three trainers here for easy experience and cash,
then move on.

On the next floor, take a step down and go left to grab an Elixir from outside
the sight range of the channelers here.  You can reach the next floor without
a fight, but what fun would that be?  You can find an Awakening and a Great
Ball on this floor, but you won't be able to get the latter without at least 
one fight.

The same as before.  Take out the Gastlies and head up one floor.  Use the Item
Finder near the north end of this floor and you should get a response.  The
item in question, a Big Mushroom, is hidden north of the tombstones, past the

northernmost Channeler (who is also the first on the list below).  Snag it and
make your way to the purification circle in the center of the room.  The
Channeler standing on it won't fight you, but Tammy nearby will.  Her Haunter
isn't much tougher than the Gastlies you've been fighting, and has many of the
same moves.  Plus, when you reach the purification circle your Pokemon will be
fully healed and restored, so just make your way past the two remaining
trainers, heal up if needed, and go to the next floor.  Don't forget to snag
the Nugget, though.

Second to last floor.  Remember that you can return to the previous floor and
the purification circle if you happen to take a pounding from the trainers
here, but it shouldn't be needed if you beat Erika in Celadon.  If you 
didn't...well, that's what the purification circle is for.  Go down as soon as 
you enter this floor to avoid the Channeler staring at you and get an X 
Accuracy below.  When you've got it, make your way through the Channelers to 
the stairs.  The one closest to the stairs down you can avoid, but the next two 
you won't be able to miss, at all.

Once again, more of the same, over and over.  By this time you should be well-
versed in defeating Gastlies.  Take them out, get the Rare Candy just lying
around, and go up to the final floor...but wait!  You'll have to fight a
Marowak, the Pokemon killed by Team Rocket!  It's a level 30 critter, tough
due to its high attack and defense, but very vulnerable to grass, water and ice
moves.  It uses such moves as Headbutt, Leer and the ever-strong Boomerang,
which will seriously injure and possibly kill any Pokemon with low defense
or HP.  It's best to exploit its weaknesses with strong water or grass attacks,
because if you're depending on physical attacks, you'll be at it for a long
time.  Also bear in mind you cannot catch this Marowak.  Don't bother trying,
you'll just waste Pokeballs.  If you want one, you can catch and evolve a
Cubone.

After pacifying the spirit, head up to the final floor.  You'll be assaulted by
a gauntlet of Rocket grunts.

The first just uses Zubats and its evolution, so send out an electric type to
waste them all quickly.  The Drowzee of the second can be a nuisance, as well
as the Koffing if it's allowed to poison your Pokemon.  The third has Rattata
and Raticate, both of which have Hyper Fang and can cause lots of damage in a
single hit.  If by some chance you happen to have a Jolteon with Double Kick,
you can just use it and wipe out his entire party by itself.  Otherwise, just
send out your best and they'll all fall quickly.

After freeing the old man, speak to him and you'll be taken out of the tower
and to his home.  Speak to him again and he'll give you the Pokeflute, which
can wake the two Snorlax blocking the routes to Fuschia City.  However, before
you leave Lavender, go back into the Pokemon Tower and head up to the top
floor.  Use the Item Finder where Mr. Fuji was standing and you'll receive the 
Soothe Bell.

That's about all for Lavender Town, but to get to Fuschia, there are two
routes.  One involves a bike path and the other is your ordinary walk through a 
gaggle of rival trainers.  Either path will get you to Fuschia, and both should 
be taken eventually for the experience, cash and items.  It's up to you which 
path to take first, either south from Lavender or west from Celadon.  Pick one 
and we're off!

 5g-1. Cycling Road
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Go west, young trainer.  West out of Celadon, that is.  Your first obstacle
Will be the sleeping Snorlax.  Use the Pokeflute to wake it, but be warned: 
it's a strong bastard.  It uses moves such as Headbutt and Yawn.  The former 
hurts you, the latter puts you to sleep after one turn.  And after all that, 
it'll use Rest to restore all its HP, then use Snore to hurt you...while it's 
asleep!  A real pain, this thing.  If this is your first battle with Snorlax, 
try to capture it so you can simply kill the second.  If this is your second 
battle and you didn't capture the Snorlax south of Lavender Town, you'd better 
capture it, as it's the last wild Snorlax in the entire game.

After Snorlax has been defeated, stand on the square where it used to sleep and
use the Item Finder.  You'll pick up Leftovers, which should be given to a
Pokemon to hold immediately.  Go into the guard house and up to the second
floor.  Speak to another of Professor Oak's aides to receive the Amulet Coin if
you've captured over 40 different species of Pokemon.

Going west out of the guard house will put you on Cycling Road.  A few notes
about this course: you will automatically ride downhill, but you can stop and
climb uphill by holding B and up on the D-pad.  It's recommended to just hold B
during the entire time on the Road just so you have some control over where you
end up.  The tall grass here hides Fearow, a great bird Pokemon to have, or at
least fight.  Since it's fully evolved, it will give you a lot of experience.
You can also catch a Doduo here, and should if you want something to replace
your old Pidgey or Spearow.  Now then, onto the trainer cavalcade!

Bikers and Cue Balls litter the Cycling Road.  Bikers use poison types, while
the Cue Balls have Fighting types, often just Machop/Mankey and their
respective evolutions.  The best thing you can do is either send a Ground or 
Psychic type to the front of your line-up to take them out quick.  A Psychic 
type will likely be able to torch the whole of the opposition by itself.  
You'll need one, or at least a strong Pokemon to deal with the Koffing and 
Weezing, as they're immune to Ground attacks.

After all this, you'll end up stopping at the beginning of Route 18.  Head
Right to reach the guard house and go to the second floor to find a guy who 
wants to trade a Lickitung for a Slowbro.  If you've got a Slowbro (or a 
Slowpoke) you'd do well to trade it, as Lickitung isn't available elsewhere in 
the game.

Exit the guard house via the right path and you'll be just west of Fuschia.
You can go ahead into the city and heal up your Pokemon, or battle it out with
the remaining three trainers stalking the tall grass south of the guard house.
Go on, teach them what-for!

With those three out of the way, you can wander around in the tall grass if you
want, but what's in there is the same stuff that was at the Cycling Road, so
just fight here if you want to level up or catch a Doduo and Fearow without
having to ride back up the hill over and over.  Anyway, Fuschia is right
nearby, so skip past the section on the Silence Bridge and go on in when you're 
ready.

If you're opting for the route south of Lavender, heal up if needed and head on
down the road.  You'll soon pass through a guard station and onto a boardwalk.
There's an item ball in view along the way, but you'll have to come back and
get it after you've learned Surf.  Continue on and fight the trainers, who
mainly use water Pokemon, so any electric types will have a field day against
them.

When you've waded your way through this deluge of opposition, you'll find
you've come across a sleeping Snorlax.  Well, the Pokeflute you got from Mr.
Fuji will wake that sucker right up.  Snorlax is a tough bugger to fight, let
alone catch. Its Rest move will restore all its HP (and it will use it far too
often...) While Rest will put it to sleep, it has such high HP that it will
likely survive long enough to wake up, use Rest, and repeat the whole annoying
process. It can also use Headbutt and Yawn, a move that will put your Pokemon
to sleep. You can kill this Snorlax and catch the one west of Celadon if you
haven't already, but if you didn't catch that one, you must capture this one,
as it's the last wild Snorlax in the game.  Unless, of course, you can trade
for it...

But anyway, the best way to knock out its HP is high-damage attacks, preferebly
with a tank Pokemon like Sandslash, using moves such as Dig, Slash and
Earthquake.  Swap out as many Pokemon as needed, and either beat it or ensnare
it when you can.  As soon as it's gone (by whatever means) stand where it used
to sleep and use the Item Finder for some Leftovers.

As soon as Snorlax is down, you can either go west to Vermilion City to heal,
or continue south down Route 12.  Going south, you'll soon reach a house in the
middle of the path.  Go inside and talk to the Fishing Guru's younger brother
to receive the Super Rod, the best fishing rod in the game.  Continuing on will
be more trainers to battle.  Along the way you should spot a small tree you can
Cut.  Do so and fight Camper Justin to get the Iron he guards.  The second
small tree will lead to an area with tall grass where you can catch Venonat,
along with Ditto, though the latter is very rare.

As you come off the bridge, hug the lower end of the path and use the Item
Finder to locate a PP Up hidden in a corner off to the left, two spaces right
of a sign.  And, of course, there are more and more trainers to battle.
There's also another spot of tall grass where you can train and catch Pokemon.

It has the same offerings as in Route 12, so if you missed Ditto, you can catch
it here.  Also, while it may look like the two Beauties at the entrance to
Route 13 are a dual battle, they're actually individual trainers.  Considering
they give a combined total of $4000, I'd say this is a good thing.

If you've got an electric-type, just stick it in the front of your line-up and
you should be able to roll over the majority of the trainers on Route 13.
While Biker Jared comes with a collection of Koffing, a decent electric type
like Jolteon or Raichu can take care of them pretty easily.  The rest are cake.

By the time you've gotten through all of these, you'll already have reached
Route 14, and all the more trainers it entails.  Use the Item Finder near
Marlon (the last Bird Keeper guarding the way south) and you should spot an
item buried on the other side of the trees.  Blocking your path are a few
scattered trainers and a gang of bikers out to make your life miserable.
However, you can avoid eye contact with all of them by hugging the right side
of the trees leading up to the tall grass.  The item is a Zinc vitamin, making
it worth the trouble if only due to its insane cost at the store.  There's a

varied crowd of trainers on Route 14, but you can probably guess how to handle
them.  Don't forget the Pinap Berry near where Route 14 turns into Route 15.
Use the Item Finder if you're having trouble locating it.

In case you haven't, now would be the time to Fly back to either Vermilion or
Lavender to heal up before pressing on.  Even if your team is at full health,
they're probably lacking in PP for their moves, so hitting the Pokemon Center
to make sure they're at full capacity would be a good idea.  If you're the
gung-ho type and want to press on, though, I can't stop you.

As for type matching, the Bird Keepers are self-explanatory, the Bikers will
focus on Poison types like Koffing and Muk, while the twins each have one of
the starters, so you might see a familiar face or two.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

And that's Route 14!  Scary, ain't it?  As you can see, a good psychic or
ground type can easily wipe out all the bikers, and give the other trainers a
run for their money.  Kadabra is definitely worth its weight, so to speak. As
for Route 15, there's still more single-type trainers, but there's more of a
mix.  Bird Keepers intermingle with Bikers and the girl scouts.  Also note you
can Cut the small tree on Route 15 and battle your way past a bunch of trainers
to score TM18, Rain Dance  Or if you time it right, you can walk past them,
jump down the ledge, and just walk into Fuschia City.  Which might be a good
idea, as you can hit the Pokemon Center and rest up before going back to take
out the rest of these jokers.  Whenever you choose, though, They'll be waiting
for you.

The final three trainers listed (one of which is a double duel) are the ones
protecting Rain Dance, but the only one to really worry about is the double
duel with the rather strong Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee.  A good psychic and
flying team can take them down real quick-like, though.

Quick note: why are the Bikers named Ernest and Isaac?  You'd think they
would've adopted a nickname like Spike or Slash or Marmalade.  Oh well.

Now then, you've battled your way past difficult odds and persevered.  Your
reward?  A trip to the Safari Zone and lots of free Pokemon!  But first, when
you enter the guard house, go up to the second floor and speak to yet another
of Professor Oak's aides.  He'll give you the EXP. Share if you've caught at
least fifty different species of Pokemon.  Now go west to Fuschia.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5g-3. Fuschia City and the Safari Zone
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Whew!  Regardless of which route you used to get here, your first stop should
be the Pokemon Center, which is just east of the city gym.  Also, right of the
Center are two houses side by side.  Enter the rightmost house and talk to the
guy here.  He's one of the Fishing Gurus and will give you the Good Rod if you
answer Yes to his question.  If you took the Silence Bridge route to get here,
then the Good Rod is a waste of space, as the Super Rod is more effective.

Anyway, go out the back door.  Use the Item Finder.  See that cluster of three
flowers?  One square right of the bottom flower (and one square down from the
center flower) is a hidden Max Revive.  Score!

If you don't have a Pokemon with Cut in their moveset, you can still reach the
Safari Zone, you just have to take the long route around the upper right corner
of the city.

But before you do, a few more notables of this city.  The house directly left
of the Pokemon Center is the Move Deleter, a handy guy if you taught Flash to
your only Kadabra.  In case you haven't realized, Flash is only useful in that
one lone dark cave, and not used at all for the rest of the game.  Then again,
that's what the Move Deleter's for.  Or a spare Abra...

Okay, one more stop before delving into the Safari Zone.  Make sure to stop at
the Pokemart here.  Sell off any Great Balls and any money items and stock up
on Ultra Balls.  They also have Full Heals for sale, $600 each.  At this point
you should sell off all your individual status cure items (Antidote, Awakening,
etc.) and just buy Full Heals.  It's much cheaper to buy those than all the
many individual cures (and much easier to administer them, too).  North of the
Pokemart is a Move Tutor teaching Substitute, so use him if needed.

Safari Zone time!  Here's how it works if this is your first Pokemon game (odds
are against me here, but I'm a gambler).  You can't use your Pokemon to fight.
You can either throw bait (makes Pokemon less likely to run, but harder to
capture) or rocks (makes them easier to capture but much more likely to run)
and you can only use the special Safari Balls to catch the Pokemon you find.

Now, it costs $500, and you get both 30 Safari Balls and 600 steps.  If either
runs out (odds are the steps will run out far sooner) then your mini-adventure
is over and you'll be returned to the entrance to the Safari Zone.  There are
rest houses scattered around the Zone where steps won't be counted, so you can
save, take a break, and then return to capturing and wandering later.

Anyway, with only 600 steps, you should plan to either go hunting for Pokemon,
or go for the final rest house, which holds HM03, Surf, and is also located by
a key item that'll lead to HM04, Strength.

First off, the area where you begin is the Center Area.  The Pokemon you can
catch are as follows:

 Chansey   - Very Rare
 Exeggcute - Uncommon
 Venonat   - Rare
 Nidoran F - Common
 Nidorina  - Uncommon
 Nidorino  - Very Rare
 Parasect  - Rare
 Pinsir    - Very Rare
 Rhyhorn   - Uncommon

Chansey should be your goal here, as it's quite rare and can't be caught in the
wild elsewhere.  Pinsir is only good for filling out your Pokedex, really.
Rhyhorn can't stand up to Sandslash (personal opinion, I take no responsibility
for it) and the Nidoran family can be caught and evolved.  However, if you've
got the Super Rod from Route 12, you should try fishing.  Seaking will appear
quite often, as well as Slowpoke, both worthy catches.  The ideal catch is
Dratini and/or Dragonair, both of which evolve into Dragonite, a powerful
dragon-type Pokemon.

Go up and right to reach Area 1.  This place has much of the same Pokemon as
Area 1, but includes:

 Paras      - Rare
 Doduo      - Uncommon
 Kangaskhan - Very Rare

As with Chansey, Kangaskhan is a tough one to find, let alone catch.  It will
typically run at the first opportunity, so don't even bother tossing rocks.
Bait or a Safari Ball will be your only hope(s).  Other than that, the other
Pokemon in this Area are ones that can be caught elsewhere, either in the
Safari Zone or out in the world.

Follow the path to a Leaf Stone, then continue on and get the TM11 (Sunny Day)
from the tall grass.  Left from it is a Max Potion near another patch of tall
grass.  There's a Full Restore near the rest house of this Area, so take it.
From the rest house, go up and left till you hit Area 3.

Area 3 only has three Pokemon worth noting:

 Chansey  - Very Rare
 Tauros   - Very Rare
 Venomoth - Very Rare

Both are hard to find and catch.  Tauros is like Kangaskhan in that it usually
won't tolerate any rocks and often snubs bait.  Venomoth is just here so you
don't have to level up Venonat (unless you like Venonat...)  Chansey is also
here, in case you didn't catch one in the Center Area.

Just left of the entrance to Area 2 is a path going down into the Center Area,
but it only leads to a big patch of tall grass.  It's really just a shortcut to
Area 2 once you've learned Surf.  From the entrance to Area 2 take the right
stairs and follow the path to a clearing with a Quick Claw item.  Take the
other stairs and you'll end up near a path to Area 3.  Take it, and head down
to the sign, then turn left to pick up a Max Revive.  Keep going left and
you'll end up by a Max Potion.  That's all for this part of Area 3, except for
a rest house and an alternate route back to the Center Area.

Return to Area 2 and go north along the path they've laid out for you.  Past
the tall grass you'll find TM47 - Steel Wing, then a Protein near the rest
house.  Continue on to reach Area 3.  Check the sign.  Seems the Warden wants
his Gold Teeth.  Well, guess what?  They're just a little bit south from the
sign.  Convenient, huh?  Use the Item Finder near the rest house left of that
same sign to locate a Revive, then pick up the visible TM32 - Double Team.
Now enter the rest house (which is actually the Secret House) to receive HM03,
Surf!  Yay!  You can't use it yet, though.  First you need to beat Koga of the
Fuschia City gym.

If you're done catching Pokemon and getting items, go into the menu and select
to Retire.  Go to the Pokemon Center and hop off the right ledge.  Enter the
first house to the right to find the Warden.  Give him his Gold Teeth to get
HM04 - Strength.  Teach it to a Pokemon and use it to move the boulder inside
the Warden's house to get the Rare Candy that's blocked off.  Now, time to take
on Koga.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5g-4. Koga the Poison Shinobi
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The gym's right by the Pokemon Center.  Can't miss it.  The trainers around the
gym will use primarily psychic-type Pokemon, so if you've got a good Bug type
lying around, now would be the time to use it.  The Ghost types you can catch
in the Pokemon Tower are also Poison types, so they're weak against Psychic
attacks.  In other words, don't use them.  Once inside, go straight up and
straight left to fight Juggler Nate.  Once he's down, go straight right to
battle Juggler Kayden.  After him, head one square right, then straight up
until Juggler Kirk attacks you.  Go up again when you're done with Kirk to
battle Tamer Edgar, who will use the first Poison type of the gym, along with
the odd Sandslash.

From Edgar, go left along the north wall of the gym till you spot another
trainer, then feel your way down to him.  After beating Tamer Phil, go to the
square one left of where he stands (or was standing, if he caught sight of you
and moved) and go down two, then left one to fight Juggler Shawn.  Skip past
the trainer listings to get directions to Koga.

Koffing (37)      Poison           Psychic                                 903

Koffing (37)      Poison           Psychic                                 903
Weezing (43)      Poison           Psychic                                 1593


Koga's a real bastard Poison-type user.  His Koffing and Weezing both levitate,
so you can't use Ground-type moves like Dig or Earthquake against them.  If you
have it, Sand Tomb is still effective.  Otherwise, send a Psychic type out to
beat up Koffing, then switch to a Ground-type to battle Muk.  It's powerful,
but it's very vulnerable to such moves as Dig and Earthquake.  Muk likes to use
Minimize to raise its evasion power, Acid Armor to raise its defense by a ton,
and worse, Koga has Hyper Potions at ready to heal it or any of the rest of his
lineup.  If you happen to get poisoned, cure it right away!  His type of poison
can hurt you in a hurry.

Now, Weezing is a whole new brand of hurt.  Its level is likely much higher
than anything you've currently got, so you'll have to fight smart.  Psychic
types will likely take it out quick, unless Koga reserved his Hyper Potions for
his final batter.  If you haven't got a Psychic type, odds are you'll have a
tough battle ahead of you.  Ground types also aren't effective due to Weezing's
levitating power, so odds are you'll have to deal with accuracy loss,
poisoning, and a lot of annoying rounds ahead.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Victory against Koga nets you a nice prize purse, including the SoulBadge.
This badge lets you use Surf whenever you want, so you can now go back to the
Safari Zone and get a few more items.  You'll also receive TM06, Toxic.  With
that gym out of the way, the road is clear to Saffron City.  Well, not really.
If you didn't get the Tea from the old woman in the Celadon Mansion, you'll
have to go snag it and give it to the guys at the guard house so they'll let
you through.  It doesn't matter which one gets the Tea, that one guard will
distribute it to the others.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5h. Saffron City - Silph Co. Corporate Headquarters
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5h-1. The Fighting Dojo
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To get to Saffron, you can either go south from Cerulean City, west from
Lavender Town, east from Celadon City, or north from Vermilion City.  In other
words, it's located right in between those four outlying cities.  So it's easy
to find, as long as you've opened up the guard houses leading to it.

Saffron is currently under siege by Team Rocket, so you know what that means:
Kid Crime Fighter to the rescue!  But first, go right from the Pokemon Center
(it's in the lower left corner of the city) till you reach Mr. Psychic's house.
As the name suggests, he will give you TM29, which will teach one of your
Pokemon the move Psychic, literally (as the name would also suggest) the best
Psychic attack move in the game.

Now, the Fighting Dojo is sort of a mini-gym.  They only use Fighting type
Pokemon, and they'll reward you with either a Hitmonchan or a Hitmonlee if you
beat their leader.  It's right next door to Sabrina's gym in the upper-right
corner of the city.  It's a gauntlet-style battle to the finish, so bring out
your Psychic or Flying types to beat them.  The leader, Black Belt Koichi, will
use Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan respectively, and they're both tough opponents,
even with a Psychic or Flying type.  Hitmonlee is really the hardest to beat,
since Hitmonchan likes to use elemental punches that don't do a lot of damage,
even if it's effective against whatever type you're using.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After beating Koichi, you're able to take either Hitmonlee or Hitmonchan as
your prize.  You can't take both, as Nintendo still retains its sadistic side
in making you trade for the other one.  Hitmonlee is a better Pokemon for
fighting purposes, but Hitmonchan is also a decent choice.  Just pick whichever
you want, neither one is that great.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5h-2. Assault on Silph Co.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With that out of the way, go on over to Silph Co.  If you visited Saffron
before beating Erika, you might've noticed the guard standing in front of the
entrance. Well, the lazy bum is asleep now, so go right in!

The first floor is empty of enemies, allies, or...well, anything but furniture.
In the interest of keeping my sanity, I'll be skipping listing every trainer
for every floor, primarily because there's a lot of them and you can get
through this entire 'dungeon' without fighting more than a few of them. So
I'll note important items and such for each floor, but first, we need the Card
Key.

From the first floor, take the elevator all the way up to the fifth.  Go left,
dodge the scientist (or battle him if you want) and go down till you find a
Rocket Grunt.  He'll send out an Arbok, easily defeated with Ground or Psychic
types.  If you can't get past the Grunt after fighting him, then enter the
teleporter and go back, then head right along the south wall till you pick up
the Card Key.  Simple, huh?  Now, as for what to expect in terms of trainer
opposition, the Rocket Grunts use all the types you've seen before: Koffing
and its evolutions, Ekans and its evolutions, Zubat and Golbat, all the regular
stuff.  The scientists who have been corrupted by Team Rocket will use
Magnemite and its evolution along with Voltorb and Electrode, so bring a Fire,
Fighting or Ground type to floor them.  The Rockets will also have the odd
Cubone here and there, possibly a tribute to their Ground-type-using boss.
Most of theirlevels range from 25-30, so if you beat the Fighting Dojo, you'll
have no
trouble with these jokers.  Okay, here's the floor-by-floor breakdown:

1st Floor - Entrance.  Nothing here.

2nd Floor - A woman behind a locked door will teach Thunder Wave.

3rd Floor - You can get a Hyper Potion behind a couple locked doors.  Also, the
teleporter between the first and second locked doors will lead to a battle with
your Rival.  The teleporter behind the second locked door will take you to a
rest area on the 9th Floor where you can heal your Pokemon.

4th Floor - South from the stairs is a Rocket Grunt and a TM41 - Torment.
Follow the path from the stairs down and left past another Grunt to find a
locked door.  Open it, and you'll have free access to an Escape Rope, Full
Heal, and Max Revive.

5th Floor - South of the stairs is a Juggler, sort of an oddball in this mess
of Grunts and Scientists.  Anyway, unlock the door left of the stairs to get a
Protein, and unlock the door south of there to get TM01 - Focus Punch.

6th Floor - In the lower left corner of this floor is a locked door protecting
a HP Up and an X Special.  Aside from the trainer battles, that's it.

7th Floor - In the lower left corner you'll find a Scientist protecting a
Calcium tab.  Slightly right and south of the stairs, past a locked door, will
be TM08 - Bulk Up.  The door past it just has another Rocket Grunt to fight.

8th Floor - The Rocket near the stairs can be avoided if you stand just north
of him and walk left till he's off the screen.  Otherwise, circle around to the
item visible from the stairs to snag an Iron.  The scientist nearby is a
friendly one, so don't worry.  You'll also find one of the four Rocket Brothers
on this floor.

9th Floor - Here's where you can get yourself healed.  The beds are in the
lower left corner of the floor, and they're being protected by another of the
Rocket Brothers.  Unfortunately, there's no items on this floor.

10th Floor - Nearly to the top!  South of the stairs are a Scientist and a
Rocket Grunt, the latter of which uses a level 33 Machoke.  The Grunt is
protecting a Carbos, Rare Candy, and Ultra Ball, which is worth the battle.

11th Floor - This floor has two parts: the first part is what you can access
from the elevator and stairs, which isn't much.  One Rocket Grunt guarding a
Zinc.  That's it.

Now then, when you're ready to assault the board room and rescue Silph Co.,
return to the third floor and enter the teleporter in between the first and
second locked door.  Go to the ninth floor and heal first if you've been
fighting.  The teleporter from the third floor will lead to the seventh floor,
and a battle with your Rival!

As you can see, he's not pulling any punches this time.  His Pidgey's fully
evolved, as well as his Kadabra.  Both can be a real pain in the ass if you
don't take care of them quickly, but fortunately Pidgeot's still very weak
against Electric types and Alakazam's low defense makes it vulnerable to a
heavy-hitting Pokemon.  Growlithe can use Roar and screw with your line-up, and
while Exeggcute is no trouble, if you chose Bulbasaur as your starter you'll
have to go against Gyarados.  It's terribly vulnerable to Electric types, so
if you can hit it with a Thunderbolt straight-away, you won't have to worry
about it.  Your Rival's starter is a real pain, though.  No matter what it is,
it'll be big, strong and tough to beat without comparable Pokemon of your own.
Still, it's nothing compared to what's up ahead, so take it down quick and
move on.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Once your Rival's been toasted, he'll wander off, leaving you to free Silph Co.
But first, talk to the guy standing nearby to receive a free Lapras!  Since
they're rare as all get-out, be thankful he's such a generous soul.  Take the
southern teleporter up to the second half of the 11th Floor.  You'll have to
battle another Rocket Grunt to reach the board room.  This one holds a Cubone,
Drowzee and Marowak combo, but they're not that tough after having triumphed
over your Rival.  Unlock the door to the board room and head in to face...!

Guess who's back?  Back again...anyway, the Nidorino is a pushover, even
without a Ground or Psychic type.  The Rhyhorn remains extremely vulnerable to
Grass and Water, and Kangaskhan has lost a little of its punch now that you're
stronger as well.  Use Fighting moves to take it down quick, because its Mega
Punch move can still do a truckload of damage.  Nidoqueen is like Nidorino and
Rhyhorn combined: looks strong, but has a lot of weaknesses.  It's still got
enough moves to bring you to your knees should you take too long defeating it,
so bring out the heavy guns and waste her majesty.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After defeating Giovanni, he'll disappear once again and you'll be able to
speak to the president of Silph Co., who will deliver unto you the Master Ball.
Score 10x! Now make your way out of the building and into the light of day
once more.

 5h-3. Sabrina, the Psychic Gymleader
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With Giovanni out of office, the Rockets wandering the street will now be gone.
Check out the buildings that were once blocked by Rockets.  You can find the
Copycat and the kid who has a crush on her.  Yeah, good luck with that brat.
However, you can get the kid to teach one of your Pokemon the move Mimic by
buying her a Pokedoll from the Celadon City shopping center.

Anyway, your next stop before rushing off to Cinnabar Island is Sabrina's gym.
This place is loaded down with Psychic types, something of an irony considering
the Fighting Dojo next door.  Sabrina's gym operates on teleporting pads, so
finding your way around can be a little confusing.  To top it off, there are
rival trainers in random rooms waiting to weaken you for the battle against
Sabrina.

There are a few ways of going about this gym, the first one being randomly
going into teleporters and hoping you find your way to Sabrina.  Or, you can
systematically fight all the trainers and get some good experience before
battling Sabrina.  Or, if you follow the directions below, you can reach
Sabrina without a fight.  First, enter the only teleportation pad you can reach
from the entrance.  Now go:

 Up
 Down
 Down
 Up
 Down
 Up
 Up
 Down
 Down
 Up
 Up
 Up
 Down
 Down

And you'll reach Sabrina without so much as a peep from the trainers.  However,
if you deviated from the path and got caught by a rival trainer, or if you just
want to fight for the experience, then check the list below for names and
types. It's mainly just Psychic types, though the Channelers use Ghost-types
like Gastly and Haunter.

Alakazam (43)     Psychic          Bug, Dark, Ghost                        1713

The first Kadabra has terrible physical defense, so it's no trouble once you've
hit it with a good physical attack.  Mr. Mime is a bit tougher, as it'll use
Calm Mind, raising its special attack and defense in one stroke.  Even one use
will make it a lot stronger.  All of Sabrina's Pokemon have a variety of
Psychic attacks like Confusion, Psybeam and, yes, Psychic.  Worse, Sabrina has
a pair of Hyper Potions she'll use when her Pokemon are weakened.  Venomoth is
the odd Poke out, as it's a Bug/Poison type and can, in fact, be killed quite
easily with a good Psychic attack.  Sabrina's finisher, Alakazam, is a good
deal stronger than the ordinary Kadabras you've fought before.  It can really
hurt an under leveled team, but it still retains the low defense of a Kadabra,
so a good strong hit will do it in.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Victory here nets you the MarshBadge, and TM04 - Calm Mind.  That particular TM
should be used with care.  Calm Mind is among the best buff moves in the game.
While you do have to leave the gym in the same way you came in, it's easier to
get out than it is to get in.  Anyway, rest up, we're taking a little trip.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5i. Cinnabar Island - The Hot Vacation Spot!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5i-1. But First, a Trip to the Power Plant
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah, screw that long swim to Cinnabar, let's go to the Power Plant first.  Fly
on over to the Rock Tunnel Pokemon Center and go north from there.  Past a big
patch of tall grass, you should see a small beachfront where you can Surf.  Do
so, and swim right, then south when possible until you go past a small bit of
mountains blocking the land route, and you will reach the Power Plant.  There's
a single trainer here, with a Rhyhorn and Lickitung, both severely under
leveled compared to what you've faced before.  Once you've dealt with him, go 
into the Power Plant.

Be on the lookout for Magnemite and Magneton, both of which occupy the Power
Plant and are excellent catches.  You can also encounter Pikachu and Voltorb
here, the former of which you should already have.  There are Electrodes
disguised as items, so be wary.  Go up and snag the first item ball you see for
a Max Potion, then continue on till you reach an intersection.  Go right and
follow the path there till you find TM17 - Protect.  After that, go up and left
along the north wall to get an Elixir.  Return to the intersection and go down.
At the next intersection, go down only if you want to fight and capture an
Electrode disguised as an item.  Otherwise, go right.  Head down at the next
intersection for a TM25 - Thunder.

Whew.  At the third intersection, go up to continue on.  Continue up at the
next crossroad and snag the Thunderstone on the right, but ignore the item on
the left, as it's an Electrode.  After that, just return and follow the path
till you encounter Zapdos.  Save your game before speaking to it.

Zapdos is a bird of a different nature.  It's both Electric and Flying, so it's
resistant Electric and immune to Ground, making it one tough bastard.  Your
best bet is Rock-type moves, its one and only vulnerability.  A good Rock
or Ground Pokemon (the latter having Rock moves) will stand a good chance
against Zapdos due to their invulnerability to this thing's powerful electric
attacks.  Zapdos' moveset consists of Thunder Wave, Agility, Detect, and Drill 
Peck.

Be prepared to throw many, many Ultra Balls at this thing.  The Master Ball
should not, I repeat, should not be used here.  There are much more difficult
Pokemon to catch.  The best way to ensure capture is to either freeze,
paralyze, or put this bird to sleep, then start tossing your Ultra Balls.
Otherwise, you'll have a much more difficult time of things.

Finally, if you're having trouble, you can always leave and come back.  Zapdos
will still be here, waiting for you.  However, if you manage to catch it,
you'll have the first of the three legendary bird Pokemon on your side, not to
mention one tough critter.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5i-2. And Now, the Seafoam Islands
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In trainer-infested waters.  Ugh.  Fly down to Fuschia City and leave the city
via the southern entrance.  You'll soon be walking on the beach, and your trip
to the surf will be interrupted by a pair of Swimmers.  Get used to these guys,
as they litter Routes 19 and 20.  I won't even bother listing what they've got
to throw against you, as it's all the same.  Nearly every single Pokemon they
have is either a random Water type or Tentacool/cruel.  The levels are much
lower than what you've encountered at Sabrina's gym, so if you're anywhere in
the 30's with Thunderbolt as one of your moves, you'll blast them easily.  Not
only that, but the Swimmers give out the least amount of money of any trainer
type.  Cheapskates.  So, just pick out your favored Electric type, or snag
Zapdos from the PC if you want and turn it loose against these waterlogged
wonders.

Eventually, past all the weakling Swimmers and...well, more Swimmers, you'll
run into the Seafoam Islands.  This particular dungeon holds the second of the
legendary bird Pokemon, Articuno.  If you need to restore PP for some of your
Pokemon (or health, if you actually took a beating from the Swimmers) fly back
to Fuschia and rest up, because Articuno is just as tough as Zapdos.  The local
Pokemon inside the Seafoam Islands are a decent challenge in themselves.  While
Zubat and Slowpoke is nothing new, you can meet and catch their evolved forms,
Golbat and Slowbro.  The latter can be traded to the kid in the guard house
west of Fuschia City for a Lickitung.  You can also encounter the new Seel and
Dewgong, both worthy catches.  As a final note of preparation, make sure you've
got Strength set on one of your Pokemon.  You'll need to shove a few boulders
here, and no Strength means no passage through this dungeon.

Anyway, start by going up and pick up the Ice Heal.  Go down the ladder and
then head down, right and up the lower set of stairs.  Go right from there to
get a Revive.  Go down the ladder northwest of there and head down to get a Big
Pearl. Head up the ladder to your right and you'll find a Water Stone.  Now go
back down and head to the left till you spot another ladder. Take it downstairs
and make your way right, then down and left to a boulder puzzle.

In lieu of ASCII art, I shall attempt text-based directions. You should see
two boulders side by side.  Push the right one up two squares, then push the
left down one square and left one square.  Leave it there for now. There should
also be a pit nearby, with a boulder two squares above it.  Push that boulder
as far left as it'll go.  Now drop the two remaining boulders into the pits.
The one on the left is a simple matter, and the one on the right just requires
two shoves left and one shove down.  Drop into either of the pits.

You'll land in water and automatically be in Surf mode.  Land on the nearby
stairs and go right and down to snag an Ultra Ball.  Head back into the water
and swim up till you spot Articuno.  Like with Zapdos, save before engaging in
combat with this bird.

Articuno is an Ice/Flying type, which means it's weak to Fighting, Fire, Steel,
Ice (believe it or not) and 4x weak against Rock.  If you have a Rock move, now
would be the time to use it.  If you chose Charmander as your starter, you'll
do well with its Flamethrower attack.  Articuno likes to improve its speed with
Agility, protect itself from status effects with Mist, and use Mind Reader in
combination with Ice Beam.  Once again, your best bet is to get its HP down to
a tiny sliver and then inflict it with debilitating status effects like sleep,
paralyze, or freeze it if you can.  After that, just keep on chucking Ultra
Balls till it gives in.

Whether you caught Articuno or opted to beat the snot out of the annoying ice
bird, surf your way back to the other landing and go up the nearby ladder.
Continue up every ladder you see (just the ones going up) till you reach the
first floor and the entrance.  If you somehow get lost, just use an Escape Rope
and re-enter the dungeon.  Either way, go right and up from the entrance to
find another boulder.  Shove it into the pit to the north and follow it down.
Keep pushing it into each subsequent hole until you land in the water again. Go
left and down, then up the ladders until you once again reach the entrance.
Don't use an Escape Rope, though, as you'll reset the boulder you just pushed
into the water.

Once you reach the top level again, go right from the ladder to find another
boulder and a hole.  Once again you've got to shove this thing down into the
water to block the current and free the way to the exit.  Once you've done that
and landed in the drink one more time, land on the right-hand stairs and go up
the ladder.  From there, it's a simple walk to the exit.

Your first sight upon leaving will be a rival trainer, but she is once again a
nobody compared to you.  After beating her, just Surf your way through the mess
of Swimmers and occasional nutcases on the tiny islands.  None of them are of
any terrible consequence.  They have slightly varied teams, with Staryu and
Seaking making an appearance, but they're still all Water and Flying types, so
a single Electric type can bowl them over.  If you're hurting from the cave and
Articuno, just avoid them.  The ones on the islands won't target you unless you
land on their spot of soil, and the ones in the water have a set line of sight.
Continue swimming left till you hit Cinnabar Island.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5i-3. Cinnabar Island and the Creepy Mansion
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First thing's first, heal and save.  The Pokemart has nothing new.  Same stuff
as in Fuschia and Saffron.  Next to the Pokemart, though, is the Pokemon Lab.
Step on in, let's have some fun.

In the first room you'll find a girl who wants to trade a Venonat for her
Tangela.  The old man will trade your Raichu for his Electrode.  The latter is
only worth the trade if you didn't catch Electrode in the Power Plant and don't
want to evolve Voltorb.  In the second room, one of the scientists will teach
one of your Pokemon Metronome.  In the third room, the kid will trade his Seel
for a Ponyta from you, but you should have caught a Seel from Seafoam Island,
so it's a pointless trade.  Now, the scientist in the third room will take your
fossil(s) and transform them into Pokemon.  You'll get either Omanyte or Kabuto
depending on which fossil you chose at Mt. Moon.  He says he'll need time to
create the Pokemon, but all you have to do is just leave the building and
return for him to finish.  Pick up your newly-revived Pokemon and head to the
mansion in the northwest corner of the island.

A few things of note.  For one, the encounter rate is split between poison
types (Grimer, Muk, Koffing, Weezing) and fire types (Vulpix, Ponyta). Rattata
and Raticate make up the rest of the pack, with Ditto making an appearance, but
rarely.

Head north till you reach a staircase and instead go right and up to get an
Escape Rope.  Then go left and battle Youngster Johnson, who uses a pair of
low-level Ekans and a Raticate.  Nothing special.  Examine the Mewtwo statue
and press the switch so his eyes are glowing red.  Return to where you got the
Escape Rope and go through the now-opened door south to get a Protein.  Now go
back to the stairs and head up twice, till you reach the third floor.  There
will be a Burgler here with a Ninetails, so send out a Water, Rock or Ground
type to take him down.  It's strong, but gives lots of experience and money for
winning, so it's worth it to fight him.  After beating him, take the nearby
Max Potion and return to the second floor.  Examine the journal on the table if
you want.

On the second floor, make sure the statue's eyes are red.  Now go right and
down at the second intersection till you see an item ball on a checkerboard
floor.  Head down and right, then up to snag the Zinc.  There's also a journal
entry to the left if you want to read it.  From the second intersection, go up,
then right, then up at the first opportunity and right again to get a Calcium.
There's another journal here as well.  Now return to the statue and press the
button to turn off the red eyes.  Fight Burglar Arnie below if you want.  He's
got a Charmander and Charmeleon respectably, neither one very strong.  Again,
easy fight for easy money.  Anyway, after the statue's turned off, head up and
left into the newly-opened room, then up the stairs.

First off, head right till you pick up an Iron, then go back and activate the
statue.  You should see a door open up.  Go in there and fight the Scientist.
He'll use Magnemite, Voltorb and Magneton, again, not that powerful, but if you
can't exploit Magneton's weaknesses, it might be tough with its high defense.
Go right past the scientist and down the stairs.  Pick up the HP Up item and
return.  Now walk into the pit on the left side of the scientist.  Don't fall
down the right one.  You'll land in the wrong spot on the second floor.

After falling down, either walk against the left wall to avoid the Scientist
down there, or just fight him.  Electrode and Weezing will be your opponents,
both evolved, but also of low level.  After beating the Scientist (or avoiding
him) pick up the Carbos and go down the stairs.

In this basement level, go all the way left to pick up a Full Restore, then go
in the small room and fight the Burglar.  His Growlithe should be no trouble,
but his Ponyta might be a hassle.  No real trouble if you're of a decent level,
though.  Anyway, examine the nearby statue and make sure its eyes aren't red.
Now go out of this little room and head into the previously locked area.  Be
careful, though, as you can catch the eye of a scientist even when you can't
see him.  He uses a Magnemite and Electrode, the latter of which can use
Explode, but if you kill it fast enough, it won't get the chance.

Go up from the Scientist and examine the statue to open the way forward.  Go
into the second room first and pick up TM14 - Blizzard, then continue
on and get the Secret Key.  Head south from there to pick up TM22 - Solarbeam.
Go back and re-examine the statue to open the way out, then examine the statue
in the small room with the journal and make sure its eyes are red.  Now go back
upstairs.  To leave the mansion, simply go up, right and down, out the door.

Well, that's it.  You've got the key to the Cinnabar gym.  Get ready, because
it's going to be a hot time in the...no, I won't say it...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5i-4. Blaine, the Hotheaded Island Trainer!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Heal up and save, of course.  Blaine's gym is a bit unusual.  You can actually
go through the whole thing without fighting a single trainer.  Of course,
because the game lets you leave the gym and return with all your progress
saved, it really doesn't matter.  Anyway, Blaine's gym is based on quiz
questions. You examine the machine in each tiny room and are asked a question.
Give the right answer and the door to the next area opens without a fuss. Give
a wrong answer and the trainer there will automatically fight you. You can also
talk to the trainers before or after answering a correct question to fight
them. If you speak to them before even checking the question, the door will
open.

So, without further ado, here are the questions and answers.

1Q - Caterpie evolves into Metapod?
1A - Yes

2Q - There are nine certified Pokemon League Badges?
2A - No

3Q - Poliwag evolves three times?
3A - No

4Q - Are electric moves effective against Ground-type Pokemon?
4A - No

5Q - Pokemon of the same kind and level are not identical?
5A - Yes

6Q - TM28 contains Tombstone?
6A - No

And that's it, you'll be at Blaine.  But of course, what fun would a gym be if
you just walked straight to the leader and battled it out?  If you want to
fight the lesser trainers (and I recommend it, they're good experience) then
here we go...

Whether you fought your way through or answered the questions, you'll run into
Blaine at the end.  Naturally a water-type Pokemon will have a field day with
him, but it still won't be easy.

Leader Blaine (Payoff: $4700)

Pokemon (Level)   Type             Weakness(es)                            EXP

Arcanine  (47)    Fire             Water, Rock, Ground                     2145

Growlithe starts things off, and its Roar can mess up your lineup by forcing a
water-type out and an unwanted type in.  It gets worse, as every single one of
Blaine's Pokemon has Fire Blast in their moveset, the strongest fire-type move
in the game, and they will use it most of the time until they run out of PP.
Whether or not your Pokemon is weak against fire, it will hurt, a lot.  Blaine
also has the typical gym leader-issue Hyper Potions to make your life difficult
if you don't kill off his Pokemon soon enough.  His Arcanine is the toughest of
them all, with Takedown backing up Fire Blast.  Obviously your best bet is
using a Pokemon to take advantage of his Fire type's weaknesses, whether it be
Water, Rock or Ground.  My favorite move is to paralyze his Pokemon with
Thunder Wave, then watch as Fire Blast is rendered inoperable.  Hilarious.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Once more assuming you come out of this victorious, you'll earn the Volcano
Badge and TM38 - Fire Blast.  At this point there are no more gyms to battle...
or are there?  How about Viridian City and its locked doors?  Well, let's get
going!

...but first, a little break.  Maybe.  When you exit Blaine's gym, you'll be
assaulted by Bill and asked if you want to go to One Island.  If you say yes,
you'll have to complete a little mini-quest before coming back, but while
you're there you can also grab the last of the legendary birds, Moltres. You
can turn down Bill and continue on with the game, and if you do so, you will be
able to return to the islands later on in the game. If you decide to hit the is
land, go to the appropriate section in the walkthrough.  Otherwise, just keep
reading.

 5j. Home and Back Again
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5j-1. Viridian City and the Final Gym
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Surf north from Cinnabar.  Once again you'll have a long line of Swimmers and
such to battle, and once again I'm not bothering listing their lineups.  Come
on, they're Swimmers, they use the same damn things over and over.

Anyway, my laziness aside, when you arrive in Pallet Town, go north to Viridian
and rest/save, then enter the gym.  This one is filled with the same
directional arrows that were prevalent in the Rocket underground base, but it's
not nearly as complicated.  There are two ways to go about this gym, the first
being just wander around and fight all the trainers as a warm-up for the head
honcho, or just take the shortcut.

The above-mentioned shortcut is rather simple.  When you enter there will be
several paths, either marked by directional arrows, stop tiles, or both.  The
way you want has neither of these.  Hug the right wall to avoid the trainers'
eyes, fight Cooltrainer Warren (you can't avoid him) and fight Black Belt
Takashi to get him out of the way.  After that, return to the entrance and
take the path with a stop tile and a directional arrow.  With Takashi out of
the way, you can continue on to the leader.

Otherwise, you can take the first option and get a few levels for your team
before fighting the leader.  It's recommended, seeing as the leader has the
most powerful Pokemon you've faced so far.  And why not, he's the last gym
leader.  Anyway, the trainers below are listed in alphabetical order for
simplicity's sake, seeing as there are multiple paths through the gym, and many
trainers are completely optional.

                                   Ice, Ground

Well, this is it, the last gym leader. Rhyhorn is tough, but it's got so many
weaknesses it can hardly be called a threat.  However, every single one of
Giovanni's Pokemon can use Earthquake, and they do it nearly every damn turn!
The only way they stop using Earthquake is if you toss out a Pokemon immune to
it, such as a Flying type.  If you happened to capture Articuno and don't mind
using a ringer for this battle, that particular legendary bird is quite useful
against Giovanni's line-up.  Otherwise, tossing out either a water or grass
type against Giovanni's team will provide the most effective killer.

Anyway, if Earthquake is rendered inoperable, then Giovanni's team will use
more physical attacks like Body Slam, Takedown, etc.  He'll also have a couple
Hyper Potions at ready to really make things difficult.  The first three of his
team should be pushovers, since they're not much stronger than those tossed out
by the local enemy trainers.  The Nidoking is only difficult if you don't have
a ground or psychic type to knock it out.  The level 50 Rhyhorn is tough, but
also carries with it double weaknesses that are easily exploitable.  As long as
your Pokemon are of a decent level, you'll do just fine.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Your reward for the final gym is the Earthbadge, which will let you control any
Pokemon regardless of its level, along with TM26 - Earthquake.  If you've got a
Sandslash or other ground type on your team, it's the best Ground-type move
available.  Talk to Giovanni again and he'll vanish, promising to dedicate his
life to training.  Good luck, little buddy!

I don't know why he still has Pidgeot, one good electric attack kills it
easily.
Rhyhorn is nothing new, you've undoubtedly killed it many times over the course
of the game.  Depending on your starter you'll either fight Gyarados, which is
ultra-weak against electric attacks, or Exeggcute, which will either be a piece
of cake if your starter is Charmander, or just a mild annoyance if it's
Bulbasaur.  Alakazam is, as always, a danger if you don't take it down quickly
with a good physical attack.  And finally, the opponent's starter is fully
evolved and quite strong, so be prepared for a show-stopper at the end.  Just
exploit their weaknesses if you can and give your Rival a run for his money.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After beating your Rival, head to the left and enter Route 23.  Since you have
the eight badges, you'll be able to pass unchallenged through the eight
checkpoints.  Don't forget to snag the Leppa Berry from the dark patch of grass
after the checkpoint for the Thunderbadge.  After the checkpoint for the Soul-
badge, land on the tiny island and use the Item Finder to uncover a Max Ether.
After landing past the next checkpoint, use the Item Finder to get an Ultra
Ball, and an Aspear Berry in the dark grass.  Past the next checkpoint, there's
a Full Restore hidden in a rock.  Use the Item Finder to get it.  There's one
last berry past the final checkpoint, so get it before entering Victory Road.
Enter the final dungeon.

As this dungeon focuses more on puzzles than fighting, I'll be foregoing the
trainer data.  That, and I'm notoriously lazy.  With that said, let's move on.
In this cave you'll find quite a few strong Pokemon, some you've seen before,
and others you've seen, but maybe haven't caught, like Marowak (unless you've
been leveling up Cubone) and Primeape.  Otherwise, just prepare for the
standard cave random battles against rock, ground, fighting and Golbat.

When you first enter, go to the left and use Strength.  What you need to do is
push the boulder here all the way to the right, where the white button in the
floor is located.  It's not that hard, really, just don't push the boulder

into a spot where it's blocked on two sides.  After weighting down the switch,
go through the path that just opened up, avoid the trainer and instead head

up and around to another boulder.  You'll have to choose which item you want
here, then leave the cave and come back in to get the other one.  And yes,
you'll have to re-shove the first boulder onto the button.  The top item is
the TM02 - Dragon Claw, while the left is just a Rare Candy.  If you're
pressed for time or just don't want to do this again, get the TM and go.

Now then, go past the Cooltrainer (she uses all fire Pokemon if you want to
fight her) and hug the left side of the wall to avoid the second trainer, who
uses a bunch of starter evolutions.  Head up the stairs.  In this new area,
push the lower boulder onto the corresponding white button.  Ignore the upper
boulder, it leads nowhere.  Go right past the trainer and circle around to get
TM37 - Sandstorm.  Now go all the way right and circle around to get a Full
Heal (avoid the trainer here if you want) then go up and right to get TM07,
Hail.  You can avoid the trainer guarding it by hugging the north wall.
Afterwards, take the nearby stairs to the higher floor.

Right off the bat, you'll see a Max Revive closely watched by a trainer.  Get
it if you want, but his team is strong.  Afterwards, get over by the boulder
and use Strength.  Push it all the way up, then left, till you spot a white
button.  That's your objective.  You'll also notice a stairwell going down,
but ignore it.  The only thing down there is a Guard Spec. item and a trainer.
Nothing of any importance.  But do make sure to grab the nearby TM50 - Overheat
by the button.

Now then, return to where you entered this floor and take the stairs to a path
you just opened up with that boulder.  Ignore the easily avoidable trainers
unless you want to battle and continue on.  When you come to a boulder and a
hole, shove the boulder into it and follow it down.  Now just push it straight
left to have it settle on the button and clear the path to the exit.  Well,
except for one dual-trainer couple with a Nidoking and Nidoqueen.  And one
guy near the exit who looks like a trainer, but will actually teach one of
your Pokemon Double-Edge if you want.  Now exit.

Once out of the cave, go up and left till you spot a berry patch in the grass,
then go into the mini-maze of white blocks.  Take the second entrance from the
left and use the Item Finder to locate a Max Elixir.  Now take the second from
the right to reach the Indigo Plateau!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5k. The Elite 4 and the Pokemon Championship!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There's nothing much to say about this place.  You've got a Pokemon Center lady
waiting to heal your team, a PC to handle your team, and a shop that sells the
new Max Potion and Full Restore.  Don't bother with the former, Full Restores
only cost $500 more and they heal status effects as well, so they're a better
deal.  At this point you might as well spend what you want, this being the
final shop of the game and all.  When your team is assembled and you're ready
to go, head into the door to start the battle for the championship.

While Lorelei claims to be the master of ice Pokemon, most of her team is of a
hybrid type and weak against a lot of stuff.  Though if you'll notice, of every
weakness her team has, at least one of them does not have that weakness.  In
other words, you'll have to switch out Pokemon at least once.  Dewgong and
Cloyster are weak against a lot and they aren't that tough, but Cloyster can
use Protect to drag out a fight.  Slowbro can be annoying if you don't shock
it into submission.  The last two are equally annoying, but type-matching their
weaknesses will take them out fast.  Lapras can and will use Ice Beam often, so
anything that's weak against ice should stay far, far away from it.  If any of
your team is frozen, heal it ASAP or switch it out if you can't.

Machamp    (56)   Fighting         Flying, Psychic                         2316

At this point Onix is a joke.  The fact that Bruno uses two of them is even
funnier.  Hitmonchan/lee should be familiar territory as well, and simple as
long as they die fast.  They're not the real threats, though.  Machamp is the
tough one, using some powerful fighting moves like Cross Chop that can kill
incredibly quickly.  Not only that, but it's powerful and will use Bulk Up to
protect it against physical attacks.  Plus it has a lot of HP, so sending an
atypical psychic type will likely end with it being smooshed.  Even so, your
best bet is sending out a psychic type with a lot of speed and using your best
attacks right away so it dies fast.  You should try for a OHKO if possible,
because Bruno, like all the Elite 4, has a pair of Full Restores in stock and
will use them.


Agatha (Payoff: $5800)

Gengar  (58)      Poison/Ghost     Dark, Ghost, Ground, Psychic            2361

Just like in the original game, Agatha is a pushover.  While ghost types are
ordinarily annoying and difficult, all the ones in this lady's line-up are all
of a poison type, so a good psychic type will wipe them out.  Golbat is weak
against electric attacks as well as psychic, and Arbok...well, Arbok sucks.
Sad, but true.  Agatha is something of a breather in this gauntlet, as a single
psychic Pokemon can wipe out her entire line-up as long as it's tough enough.


Lance (Payoff: $6000)

Dragonite  (60)   Dragon/Flying    Dragon, Electric, Ice 4x, Rock          2802


While Gyarados may look dragon-like, it's still incredibly weak to electric
attacks.  Push-over.  The rest of his team, though, is too damn tough for its
own good.  If you have a Dragon or Ice type waiting in the wings, now is the
time to bring it out.  Both his Dragonair and Dragonites will have Hyper Beam
and will use it constantly, as well as Outrage.  Even worse, Lance has the same
Full Restores and has the horrible tendency to use them just as you've whittled
down these beasts' HP to almost nothing.  Aerodactyl is annoying, as it's
immune to electric attacks, and because it's flying, it's immune to many ground
type attacks as well. Not to mention it has Hyper Beam and is quite strong. I
used a Psychic type against it, but matching its other weaknesses will work
just as well (or even better).  After defeating Lance you may think it's
over...nope. Continue to the next room to face...

I'd just like to point out that this guy's still using Pidgeot.  Granted, it's
a unbelievably high level Pidgeot, but still a Pidgeot.  Zap it.  Also, he
finally evolved the stupid Rhyhorn to a Rhydon, but it's still a Rock/Ground
and still insanely weak to water and grass.  The rest of his team is quite
familiar, but his starter is the real trouble.  It's jumped ten levels since
your last meeting, and it's much, much more powerful.  Exploit whatever its
weakness may be should he bring it out.  Gyarados is, as always, electric
fodder.  Arcanine now likes to spam ExtremeSpeed, and Alakazam is dangerous,
but still weak against physical attacks.  While your Rival seems to be able to
yank Full Restores directly out of his ass, his team is still mostly pushovers
bolstered only by their high levels.  My team consisted mainly of Pokemon in
the very low 50's and I still whooped him soundly.

Optimistically assuming you win, you'll see a disturbing scene between Oak and
your rival, then your team will be recorded as Pokemon League champions.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5l. After the End
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the credits roll and you reload your game, you'll be presented with the
National Dex if you've collected more than 60 Pokemon thus far.  Now there are
two things you can do: the first is go to the islands from the boat at
Vermillion City, and the second is find the legendary dog that is now wandering
around Kanto.  Personally, I prefer the latter.

To get the legendary dogs, you must first understand how to find them.  They
can't be located in any one place, but they're always on the Kanto overworld.
How it works is, the dog is selected based on your starter.

Bulbasaur  - Entei
Squirtle   - Raikou
Charmander - Suicune

Now, the dog will be in one particular area on the world map, but if you should
enter a building or change areas (for example, go between routes 19 and 20)
then the dog will move to an adjacent area from the one it was in previously.
You can use this fact to your advantage by going back and forth from one area
to another.  The best way to take advantage of this is with Max Repel. Put a
Pokemon that's at or around level 49 (but not over 49!) and use a Max Repel.
If the legendary dog doesn't show up by the time you run out of steps, leave
the area and return.

My favorite spot for this is north of Vermillion City.  Hang out by the

entrance to the underground tunnel and use the Max Repel trick and just enter
and leave the building if you don't find it.  You'll locate the dog in under
ten minutes as opposed to wandering around for hours looking for it all over
the world map.

Now then, as for fighting the legendary dog...don't.  Seriously, they run at
the drop of a hat, and then you have to find them all over again.  This is the
Pokemon to use your Master Ball on, trust me.  All the other legendaries stay
in place, so they can be content with Ultra Balls.  Just toss a Master Ball
when you find your legendary dog and end it quickly.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5l-1. Cerulean Cave
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Otherwise known as the Unknown Dungeon, this is where you'll find Mewtwo, the
last and arguably most powerful legendary.  To find it, go north from Cerulean
City, then take a quick left and surf down till you spot an opening.  That
there is the cave.  Make sure you have both Surf and Rock Smash on one of your
Pokemon.  Head inside.

It's here you'll find some of the most powerful Pokemon in the game, so make
sure your team is strong and ready for battle.  Go up and surf till you spot a
ladder.  Climb it and follow the path to a Full Restore.  Go back and keep on
surfing till you spot another Full Restore on shore.  You should see a ladder
to your left.  Take it, and get the PP Up from the area above.  Go back down
and head up to a Nugget and another ladder.  Ignore that one, and instead go
back down and to the right of where you landed ashore.  Follow the path to a
ladder and a Max Elixir.  Take the ladder to get an Ultra Ball, then go back
up a level and go left and down to the final ladder.

Down here, it's a bit of a maze.  At the first intersection, go down.  At the
next, take the rightmost path and follow it to the end.  Take both ladders
down to the final level.  Just follow the path and snag the Max Revive and
Ultra Ball as you go.  Surf the final stretch to reach Mewtwo.  As always, save
before you talk to him.

As always, Mewtwo is a level 70 psychic Pokemon, and he is not happy to see
you. Mewtwo remains the uber-legendary, one with no real weaknesses to exploit.
With Psychic, Recover, Swift and Safeguard, it can be a pain to catch. If you
managed to snag your legendary dog without using a Master Ball (and if you did,
congrats) then feel free to use it on Mewtwo.  Otherwise, try to have your team
at or around level 60 or so and feel free to use as many healing items as
necessary.  My tactic involved throwing out a level 60 Suicune, then using Calm
Mind till my stats were maxed.  A single Ice Beam put Mewtwo in the red, and
the rest just involved tossing Ultra Balls.

At this point you should have enough experience with legendaries to know to
take them seriously and to be prepared to waste quite a bit of Ultra Balls.
Should you capture Mewtwo, congrats, you've got one of the strongest Pokemon in
the game.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5l-2. Elite 4 Revisited
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Interestingly enough, the Elite 4 have managed to become stronger after their
first trouncing.  Your team should be in their high 50's or low 60's (or higher
if you feel like it) before challenging them again.  All their teams will be in
the 60's, so odds are they'll outrank you in terms of levels.  Make sure you
have plenty of healing items, then head in...

                                   Steel, Rock

Lorelei is the same as always, just stronger.  Most of her Pokemon are just
upgraded versions of ones you've fought before.  Piloswine is a new addition,
and replaces Slowbro.  It's a rather interesting Pokemon.  Due to its half
ground-type, it's actually weak to ice.  One good Surf (or other water attack)
will take it down, though.  The rest of her team should be quite familiar, so
just use the same tactics and don't be surprised when Lorelei uses a Full
Restore or two.


Bruno (Payoff: $6800)

Machamp    (68)   Fighting         Flying, Psychic                         2811

Ooo, Steelix.  It has a bunch of weaknesses, but my favorite is a good
Flamethrower to the face.  The rest of his team is exactly the same, and like
Lorelei, much stronger.  Use caution when battling his Fighting types, as
they're especially good at tossing out OHKOs.  Bruno has a few Full Restores
as well, but if you type-match well enough and deliver a few OHKOs of your own,
he shouldn't get the chance to use them.


Agatha (Payoff: $7000)

Gengar     (70)   Poison/Ghost     Dark, Ghost, Ground, Psychic            2850

I still say this old bat is a pushover.  Crobat replaces Golbat, and Misdreavus
replaces Haunter.  Misdreavus is the only real threat on this team, as it's the
only pure Ghost Pokemon.  If you have a Dark or Ghost move handy, use it.
Otherwise, pound it with your best special moves.  It's not very tough, but it
is immune to physical attacks, making it annoying.  Arbok...well, Arbok sucks.
Meh.


Lance (Payoff: $7200)

Dragonite  (72)   Dragon/Flying    Dragon, Electric, Ice 4x, Rock          3363

Lance, on the other hand, is insane!  He's still using Gyarados!
Unfortunately, that particular Gyarados is the weakest of his team. Aerodactyl
remains a pain,so I recommend a good dousing with Surf.  Lance has since
evolved one Dragonair into Dragonite, and replaced the other with Kingdra. All
(except Gyarados) are
very powerful and require the most out of your Pokemon to defeat.  Most of his
team has Earthquake, so be careful what you send out, while Kingdra will spam
Surf, so watch out.  If you made it this far you should remember how to take
down Dragonite and the rest.  The real trouble is in Lance's Full Restores, so
if you can, use Ice moves against those two Dragonites, Thunderbolt against
Gyarados and Kingdra, and take out Aerodactyl any way you can.  After Lance,
you must face (guess who!) yet again...

He finally got rid of Pidgeot!  But he replaced it with Heracross, the Psychic-
type killer.  Boo.  Use a good Flamethrower to take it down.  You should be
used to his starter by now, even though it's likely ten levels above your
strongest Pokemon.  The rest are insanely familiar (including the ever-popular
Gyarados...) except...for Tyranitar!  This Rock/Dark type is immune to Psychic
attacks and it's pretty damn powerful.  It sports attacks like Thunderbolt (to
take out any water types) and causes a permanent sandstorm that will damage all
but Ground types every turn.  This means any Pokemon sent out by your rival
will also be damaged.

Otherwise, his line-up is identical, just stronger.  As long as you have
attacks that exploit their weaknesses, their levels won't make much of a
difference. However, your Rival will continue to pull Full Restores out of his
ass, so be prepared for a lengthy battle.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Assuming you won, congratulations again!  You're the Pokemon League Champion
twice over!  The ending is the same, however.  What's left, you ask?  Complete
your Pokedex, of course!  There's 386 Pokemon, so you'll be at it for a while,
trust me.  Have fun!

 6.  Islands Walkthrough
===============================================================================

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6a. One Island
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Depending on when you first go to One Island, there are certain things you can
do.  However, if you're coming here directly from Blaine's gym on Cinnabar,
your first task is to deliver a Meteorite to a buddy of Celio's.  He's on Two
Island, but we'll get to that later.  First, use Surf off the dock and swim
south to find a Swimmer with a pair of Seels and a Dewgong.  One electric-type
takes them all down.  Even further south will be a small island with a non-
trainer and some tall grass.  If you didn't trade for a Tangela back on
Cinnabar Island, you can catch one here.  You can also encounter Fearow if you
didn't pick one up on the Bicycle Road.

Once you're done with that, surf off the right side of One Island.  There will
be a Swimmer on a tiny island in plain sight.  Notice how her sprite has red
hair, but when you go into the battle sequence, she's a blonde.  Hmm...
Anyway, north of that tiny piece of land will be the next part of One Island,
complete with a gauntlet of trainers.  Make sure to surf off the right side of
the island and go north till you can pick up a Max Repel.  You can actually
continue swimming north and bypass a couple trainers.  Otherwise, just keep
walking north and fighting the good fight.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After getting past the two Black Belts, head into the cave.  It's actually a
hot spring, and it's here you can get one of the new HMs of this game.  Go on
in and find the old man standing near the spring.  He'll part with HM06 - Rock
Smash.  Teach it to a Pokemon and you can break those piles of rocks outside,
freeing the way to an Ether and Carbos.  The latter is guarded by Crush Girl
Shea, but a decent Psychic- or Flying-type will beat her down.

Collect these two items if you want, but either way, go north from the hot
springs and once again surf north.  There will be a few trainers along the way,
but nothing terribly difficult, considering it's just a couple Swimmers and one
Fisherman.  Go north past them, land, and head into the mountains.

The mountain man you see upon first arriving will teach one of your Pokemon the
move Explosion, if you want.  Either way, head left and shove the boulders out
of the way and battle the Pokemon Ranger if you want.  There's tall grass here,
and you can catch Magmar here, which I recommend given how rare it is
elsewhere.  You can also catch Ponyta, another good fire Pokemon.  There will
be three rival trainers on the path through this mountain, one of which you

can't avoid.  The first can be dodged, and the second can be bypassed entirely
if you have a Pokemon with Rock Smash equipped.  However, go up and right from
Crush Girl Jocelyn and around the side of the mountain to find a Dire Hit.
Afterwards, go left until you encounter the third and final trainer.

                                   Ice, Poison

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After beating Logan, use the Item Finder and walk into the narrow pathway left
of him.  Examine the last square there to find an Ultra Ball.  Afterwards, just
go up into the cave.  You can find Machoke here, along with the lesser-sought
Geodude and Machop.  Just follow the path till you reach the outside world once
more, this time on a higher ledge of the mountain.

Go right and up the stairs to meet a boulder-pushing puzzle.  It's pretty easy.
Just smash the rocks and shove the boulders aside to reach the Fire Stone.
After that, go left along the mountain ledge to find another Ultra Ball.  When
you've got it, go further up the mountain.

Another boulder-pushing puzzle awaits.  Push the rightmost boulder up, then the
other to the left.  Push the next one to the left, the last one up, then right
until you can reach Moltres.

The last legendary bird Pokemon!  It's just as tough as the others, but
hopefully you're stronger now as well.  It's 4x weak against Rock moves, so if
you've got one waiting somewhere, use it.  It boasts moves such as Endure,
Flamethrower and Fire Spin, with Agility rounding off its moveset.  Once again
you've got to get its HP down to a sliver, then either paralyze, freeze, or put
this big bad bird to sleep before lobbing Ultra Balls at it.

Whether you defeated (bad!) or captured (good!) Moltres, there's nothing left
for you here, unless you're visiting One Island after beating the Elite 4.  If
so, continue on to the next paragraph.  If you came here after winning at the
Cinnabar gym, then return to the One Island dock by whatever means (easiest way
is to Fly back).  From there, go to Two Island.

If you already beat the Elite 4, however, there's one more thing you can do
here.  On the lower levels of the mountain you may have noticed two Rocket
Grunts talking to one another.  Those are your targets.  However, you must
first talk to Celio in the One Island Pokemon Center before they'll fight you.
The one on the left just has a Cubone and Marowak, while the one on the right
has a Rattata and Raticate, and Sandshrew/slash.  The highest level Pokemon
between them is only 37, so both battles are pretty simple.  Beat them both to
unblock the way into the cave they dug for you.  Beating them also gives you
a password for later use.  Silly bad guys.

Once inside, just follow the path till you reach a boulder puzzle.  Shove the
first one two spaces right, then the lower boulder one right, and the final
boulder one up to proceed.  Continue to the lower level and past the next
boulder, and when the path splits, take the path going down.  Take the stairs
down a couple levels till you find the Ruby.  Go back up and return to the
intersection and head down the right path to reach the exit.  Return back to
the Pokemon Center and give Celio the Ruby.  You'll be given a pass to Islands
Four through Seven in return.  Now you're done with One Island.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6b. Two Island
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can actually go here without having captured Moltres, but why put that off?
Anyway, now that you're here, Cut a small tree south of the Pokemon Center and
follow the path that's unveiled to find a Revive.  The shop on this island has
a variable stock.  Depending on how far along in the game, it'll have newer and
better stuff.  Now go in the building marked Joyful Game Corner to watch a
cut scene.  Seems a gang of bikers have taken over Three Island...or something.
Only one thing left to do.

Head north from the Game Corner, up the steps and through the tall grass to
Find a house.  Inside will be a woman who will teach you a particular move
based on your starting Pokemon.  The Pokemon must be in its final evolutionary
stage, and must be the first Pokemon in your lineup.  Charizard will learn
Blast Burn, Blastoise will learn Hydro Cannon, and Venusaur will learn Frenzy
Plant.  The tall grass outside holds no notable Pokemon, save perhaps Persian
and Slowbro (if you don't want to level up their respective devolutions).
Besides this, there's nothing else to do (it's a small island) so head to Three
Island.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6c. Three Island
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Go north, and don't worry about the first few bikers you see.  They're not
hostile...yet.  Now, feel free to use the Pokemon Center and save, because
you're about to run through a gauntlet.  Try to pass and you'll initiate a
cut scene, not to mention draw the attention of all those bikers.  Themes
fighting' words!

Muk     (39)      Poison           Psychic, Ground                         1312

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Honestly, the only one to really worry about is the leader.  The others just
Use the now very weak Grimers and Koffings.  Weezing and Muk should be very
Familiar by now, so just let a Psychic-type take out Weezing while a Ground
type has it out with Muk.  Once the bikers are all gone, talk to the two guys
they were hassling to get a Full Restore (ignoring the Pokemon Center a few
feet away...) and information on Lostelle.  You know, with a name like that,
you'd think they'd put a blinker on the girl.

Anyway, go north from the Pokemon Center and cut down the small tree, then snag
the Zinc from the path beyond.  Go left now and cut the other tree you come
across, then use the Item Finder to find a PP Up hidden at the end of this
narrow path.  Now go left through the tall grass and beat up a few trainers.
The twins only have a pair of Clefairy, both of low levels.  The other trainer,
the one you can't avoid, uses a Bulbasaur and twin Ivysaurs, meaning one good

fire type can fry them all.  Use the Item Finder near the second trainer to
find a Max Repel in a rock.  Continue left and either beat down or avoid the
two Tubers and the final trainer.  The first two just use water types like any
good Swimmer, and the final one just has a Bellsprout and Weepinbell.  Nothing
to be concerned about.  Afterwards, just go left and up into the forest.

Now, the Berry Forest has a lot of dark patches of grass containing berries.
Use your Item Finder periodically to see if you're near one (or just squint at
the screen).  You should definitely take some time to fight around this area,
since you'll often run into evolved Pokemon, which drop some nice experience
points.

Anyway, to find Lostelle, just follow the fairly linear path to the upper-left
corner of the map.  It's pretty easy, as there are shortcuts that can be
created by cutting small trees or surfing across the small lakes.  Make sure
to pick up the item balls around here.  Included are a Full Heal, Max Ether,
and a Max Elixir behind a bunch of small trees.  Talk to Lostelle, and a
level 30 Hypno will appear.  Aside from the fact that it's only level 30, it's
hardly powerful.  One good physical attack will take it down easily.

After defeating the Hypno, you'll get some berries and appear back in the Game
Corner on Two Island.  Talk to Lostelle's father to give him the Meteorite and
get a Moon Stone in return.  If you came here from Cinnabar, go back to One
Island and talk to Bill and Celio to be returned to Kanto.  If you've already
beaten the Elite 4, though, you still have more islands to explore.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6d. Four Island
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Right off the bat you'll see your Rival, but don't worry, he doesn't want to
fight this time.  He'll just impart some 'wisdom' about Pokemon eggs and leave.
Hug the left coast and walk along the beach till you reach a cracked rock.
Smash it and pick up the Star Piece.  The Pokemart here sells everything for
sale up on Indigo Plateau, so stock up if you want.  The house next door
contains a sticker maniac, who will give you a sticker if you tell him about
winning the Pokemon League Championship.  The Day Care is also on this island,
so make use of it if you want.  The house east of it contains a Move Tutor who
will impart Body Slam.  And Lorelei's house will just be filled with dolls.

Now then, use Surf in the water behind Lorelei's house and pick up the
Stardust, then enter the Icefall Cave.  Be on the look-out for Swinub and
Sneasel, both new Pokemon you can find here.  Anyway, Surf over to the next
room, then walk across the ice such that you can pick up the Ultra Ball and
proceed without falling to the floor below.  You can only walk on ice safely if
it's intact, meaning a second step on the same tile will cause you to fall.
After you reach the dead-end with two ice patches, take the upper one down to
the next area.

Take the ladder up, then fall down the first of the two ice patches here.
You'll land on a large patch of solid ice.  Press down once, then right to snag
the Nevermeltice.  Afterwards, go back up to the two ice patches and fall
through the lower one, then press up, right, down and left to reach a Full
restore and a ladder going up.  Take it to get HM07 - Waterfall.  Now you can
go up that large waterfall near the entrance to the cave.  Do so, and take the
nearby ladder down.  Go through the door and head up to be engaged in a battle
with a Team Rocket Grunt.  The battle is a joke.  He uses two Zubat and one
Golbat, all of which are level 38.  Once you beat him down, speak to Lorelei
and leave the cave.  That's four islands down.  I would recommend you skip
Five Island for now and go to Six and Seven Islands first.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6e. Five Island
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Head along the sand and start swimming north.  Go west first to reach a small
island with a single trainer and an old man.  This old man will give you a
Togepi egg if your lead Pokemon is very happy.  You must have an empty space
in your roster, otherwise he won't hand it over.  Now go back and head east at
the path split to land on an island filled with rival trainers who give out an
unbelievable amount of prize money.  More than the Elite 4 gave out, in fact.
Ignore the house here, it's empty.  Continue surfing east to reach a the Lost
Cave.  This place can drive you nuts without directions.  It's filled with
Zu/Golbat, Gastly and Haunter, and very, very rarely you will encounter
Misdreavus.

Anyway, to get through this little maze, first go right, then up, then back
down.  Now go down, right, then back left, then down, right and stop.  The
final room is through the upper door, but make sure you're ready, as you'll
have to fight a lady with a pair of Persians.  Not exactly the strongest of
opponents, but still tough.  Beat her down.  As it turns out, this is Selphy,
the lady whose empty house you passed.  Go inside and she'll ask to see a
random Pokemon.  Show it to her and she'll give you a prize.  Usually it's just
a Luxury Ball, but you can get a Star Piece or Nugget very rarely.

This one doesn't have much at first glance.  Go right from the dock along the
beach and cut down the first small tree you see for a Max Potion.  Be on the
look-out for Sentret in the tall grass, but keep an eye out for Rocket Grunts.
They use the same Pokemon as all the rest, only at higher levels.  There's only
three of them, none of which use Pokemon as strong as the Elite 4.  Past the
female trainer, hop into the water and surf left along the coast, then up to
find a PP Up.  Blow past the last Rocket and examine the door of the Warehouse.
If you have the two passwords, it will open and grant you passage.

Now then, inside the warehouse is another of the directional tile puzzles from
before.  Start out by taking the tiles pointing left.  When you land, avoid the
directional tiles and walk up along the floor till you reach a tile heading
right.  When you land, go right one space and all the way down.  Now go left
and pick up the Big Pearl.  Take the tiles heading left again.  Take the same
route as last time till you reach the long line of arrows pointing down.  Ride
them and walk along the floor to pick up a Pearl.  Ride the arrows pointing up
and grab the Up-grade, then fight the Grunt, who has two Houndours.  Beat her
up, then go right and take the left column of down arrows (the ones stacked
three high).  Go up along the floor and fight the next Grunt.  Now ride the
arrows that are positioned directly left of the Grunt.

Long path, huh?  Follow the path of the floor and don't step on any arrows.
Take the TM36 - Sludge Bomb off the table, then ride the arrows pointing
straight down toward a stop tile.  Walk down and fight the Grunt, then continue
down to the arrows heading right.  Well, you've made it this far.  Go fight the
Rocket Admin, who carries a Muk, Arbok and Vileplume.  After beating her,
she'll change the direction of the arrows south of you so you can easily return
to this spot if you want to leave and rest up.

Either way, go up to fight the next Rocket Admin, who will toss out a Golbat,
Weezing and Houndoom.  That last one is really the only trouble, as it's a
Fire/Dark type, likely a new experience.  Fighting and water moves are your
best bet here.  After you take it down, head into the final room and fight your
last opponent, Scientist Gideon, the same idiot who stole the Sapphire.  His
lineup includes a simple Voltorb, Electrode, Magnemite, Magneton, and the new
and interesting Porygon.  The first four are no trouble if you can exploit
their weaknesses (Ground, Ground, Fire and Fire respectively) and Porygon is of
a rather low level at 46, at least compared to what you've fought so far.  One
good attack will take it down.

After winning, you'll get the Sapphire.  Leave the Warehouse and fly back to
the Pokemon Center, then take the boat to One Island and give Celio the
Sapphire.  Boom, you can now trade with any given Ruby/Sapphire game.  With
that done, all that's left is Seven Island, unless you happen to have one of
Nintendo's infamous tickets.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6f. Six Island
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Head up and into the Pokemon Center to see your Rival once again.  And no, he
won't fight you this time either.  Head out of town to the left and talk to the
trainer here if you want.  He has a pair of Voltorbs, an Electrode and a Mr.
Mime, all of which should be at levels lower than your team's.  Make sure to
fight in the tall grass as much as you can, there are lots of new Pokemon you
can catch.  Continue south past the Hiker, and keep going till you reach the
Ruin Valley.  Move around the central hill counter-clockwise until you spot an
item ball and some boulders.  Move them out of the way and claim the HP Up.
Now go back up and take the northern of the two staircases.  Fight the Hiker
and his level 50 Sudowoodo (water attacks work well against it) then shove the
boulders out of the way of your newly-won Full Restore.

Now take the lower of the two staircases and go past the series of trainers,
which primarily use Rock/Ground types, except the last one, which has a couple
Machoke.  Move on to the door that won't open...or will it?  The posts on
Either side have a message, but it's in Braille.  It says 'Cut,' so just use
Cut while facing the door and it will open.  Go on in.

Fall down the hole.  This particular puzzle is maddening without directions.
You must fall down the one correct hole out of four several times, or be sent
back to the beginning.  So here's how to proceed: first take the north hole,
then west, then east, then south.  Boom, you're right by the Sapphire.  Whoops,
lost it.  Well, you now know the second password for the secret Rocket base.
Go up the ladder and exit.  Either walk or Fly back to the Pokemon Center.

Now then, heal up and store one of your Pokemon.  This is for future events.
Now go right out of town again, but this time hop into the water and swim
north.  Fight the two Swimmers and land on the shore you come to.  Beware the
twins, they carry twin Pikachus.  If you can, have one Ground Pokemon with
Earthquake and one Flying Pokemon to take them both down in a single shot
without taking damage yourself.  The other person outside is also a trainer,
and the lady inside the house who's looking for the ultimate horn...well, we'll
get to that later.  For now, Surf off the coast in the upper right corner of
town to get an Elixir, then head into the Pattern Bush off to the left.

There are a whole bunch of trainers in this place, but your goal should be to
catch a Heracross (and whatever other Pokemon you haven't caught yet).  The
wild Pokemon here are all of low level, but you could just toss an Ultra Ball
at them while they're at full health and make a capture.  The one trainer here
to watch out for is Pokemon Breeder Bethany and her level 50 Chansey.  Chansey
is quite possibly the most annoying Pokemon to fight with its ultra-high HP and
moves that restore it quite frequently.  Either way, you're here to catch a
Heracross for that crazy horn lady (guess what she wants it for...)  The
encounter rate in the forest is high, but Heracross appears rarely, so just be
patient.

Once you get Heracross, return it to the lady so she can measure it.  She'll
give you a prize based on its size, and make mention that she'd like to see a
bigger one.  Well, if you want to waste time in the forest, be my guest.
Otherwise, pick up your sixth Pokemon from the Center and go.  While there is
a path leading out of the lower-left corner of the forest, there isn't anything
of great importance there.  What is there is a long water path that leads to
the Altering Cave, which is shaped like Mew and holds only Zubat.  While you
can get the cave to spit out a lot of different Pokemon with certain cheat
codes, normally it's just a waste of time.  Though you can also find a PP Up
item on the other side of the cave entrance, so I recommend you head down that
path to get that item, at least.

Okay, with that out of the way, everything's in order to storm the Rocket
Warehouse on Five Island.  Walk/swim/fly back to the dock and head to Five
Island.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6g. Seven Island
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This will be the last island, unless you happened to get the rather rare
Tickets from Nintendo (or you're cheating).  Anyway, north of the starting town
is the Trainer Tower, which is a pretty difficult test of your abilities as a
trainer. If you decide to take up the challenge, you'll be pitted against a
series of rival trainers as you progress up the tower.  These trainers aren't
the push-overs you've fought throughout the game.  Their levels are high and
their Pokemon are strong, and there are four game modes you can choose.
However, you don't gain any money or XP from the battles, so a training ground
this is not.

Now, south of the town is a path filled with trainers and tall grass, which
contains a number of new Pokemon, which you should try and capture, obviously.
Continue on till you reach the canyon, then be on the look-out for Larvitar.
Capture one at all costs.  It will eventually evolve into a very, very powerful
Pokemon.

Make your way through the mess of trainers till you come across a woman and a
cracked rock and boulder puzzle.  Smash the first rock and push the boulder so
it fits in with the other two rocks.  Smash the top one and shove the boulder
into the enclave, then smash the last rock and push the boulder away for the
King's Rock.  Keep going and you'll run into Cooltrainer Leroy, who has a
Rather powerful team.  Luckily, the house nearby has a man who will revive your
team to full health.  You'll have to do the Chansey dance first, though.  Be
sure to grab the Lucky Punch off the table.  He'll never miss it.

Just past the house are the Tanoby Ruins, which are basically a bunch of mini-
dungeons in which you can catch the many Unown.  Each of the various chambers
have their own internal configuration as well as their own bunch of Unown.  You
only need to catch one to fill up the slot in your Pokedex, but if you're a
perfectionist, feel free to spend some time and catch all 26 Unown letters.
Other than that, that is the end of the first seven islands.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6h. Eight Island
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Eight and Nine Island can't be accessed normally.  They require a special event
held by Nintendo to get to either island.  Or, a cheating device.

There isn't a lot to this island, at least in terms of things to do.  In terms
of Pokemon, it has two, count 'em, two legendary birds, both from the G/S/C
games.  Yes, that's right, Ho-oh and Lugia are on this island, and you can
capture them both.  There are no random battles, no puzzles, just you and the
birds.  When you come to an intersection, Ho-oh is to the left, Lugia to the
right.

Now, as for capturing them, well...that's another paragraph altogether.
They're both level 70, and Lugia is equipped with Hydro Pump, Recover, Swift
and Rain Dance, while Ho-oh has Fire Blast, Recover, Swift and Sunny Day.  Both
are a royal pain in the ass to capture, naturally.  But don't use your Master
Ball. As always, paralyze, sleep, or freeze them in order to stop their
rampages, then start tossing Ultra Balls when their HP is down to a sliver of
red.  My personal favorite technique is to use a legendary with the Pressure
ability and just use it as a tank.  Zapdos in particular is a good choice.  The
Pressure ability makes your opponent use two PP for every attack, so the two
birds will run out of PP while you keep your tank nice and healed.

That's the long way, anyway.  It's primarily for fun, or if you have a lot of
patience.  If you just don't care, capture them the same as any other
legendary. Make sure you capture both!  You can only visit this island once, so
if you miss one, you won't get another chance.

Besides the two legendaries, there's nothing else to do.  One more island left.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6i. Nine Island
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Before coming here, I strongly recommend you find a decent Pokemon around level
30 or so.  Alternatively, you can use a Pokemon with False Swipe.  You've been
duly warned.

This island is very, very simple.  There's just a triangular rock and the final
island legendary, Deoxys.  You have to examine the triangle from a specific
side each time to make the DNA Pokemon appear.  So here's the order:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Bottom
 Right
 Bottom
 Left
 Right
 Left
 Top
 Right
 Left
 Top
 Bottom
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

...and Deoxys will appear!  The problem with this particular legendary is it's
only level 30, so your team which is probably left over from the Elite 4 will
more than likely blast it into oblivion.  So, a level 30 or so Pokemon or one
with False Swipe will be handy in this situation.  Deoxys uses Knock Off,
Psychic, Spikes, and Snatch, but because it's level 30, it's primarily just an
annoyance.  Don't use your Master Ball, though.  The real trouble with this
critter is getting its HP down to the red without actually killing it.  Once
you've got it, that's all for the islands.
