    1.1 About this guide
     This is my attempt to help anyone out if they own the yellow Pokemon cartridge. 
    Currently it can only be purchased as a Japanese or Australian GB cart. However, 
    I do have a ROM of the English version, (NO, I WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SEND 
    IT TO ANYONE), and hope to provide detailed information for both those who 
    cannot understand the Japanese version, or those waiting to purchase the English 
    language cart.
    1.2 Revision History
     3.0 - Got the English ROM. BIG CHANGES EVERYWHERE. Some of interest:
            - SPEECH!
            - Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur
            - It IS GB COLOUR ENHANCED
            - Gameshark Codes removed (save space, and they don't work on English 
    1.3 Will this guide still exist upon the US release?
     Well, I have the US release, and this is a guide, so Yes.
    1.4 The US release
     The most recent release date I have received for the US release is...... 
    October 30th. WHAT? Sigh. Blue and Red will be released in the UK earlier than 
    2.1 Intro
     Instead of Jigglypuff/Nidoran and Snorlax/Gengar (is it?) battling, you get to 
    see a darkened Pokemon running at you on all fours. As it gets closer, you 
    realise it's PIKACHU! During this various clips are shown of him doing a flying 
    kick, riding a surfboard, flying on balloons, and then it shows him close up, 
    and his cheeks start to spark, and then he lets rip with a Giant thundershock! 
    The title screen then comes on, which is Pikachu saying something in Japanese. 
    It has new music too, sounds similar to the casino in Celadon City. Much better 
     -LocoRaichu writes to say that Pikachu is saying, interestingly enough, 
    "Pikachuu" (Japanese)
     - The English cart has Pikachu saying "Pika!"
    2.2 Graphics
     EVERY Pokemon in the Pokédex has been redrawn. They mostly look a LOT better 
    too, although there are many exceptions such as Magikarp, who now looks as lame 
    as he actually is. Some of them are shown at my website 
    (www.jedah.force9.co.uk/TeamRocket.html) and others may be available on request.
     -Also, Gary changes art throughout the game. Not the sprite onscreen, but the 
    picture of him during a battle. There are three different drawings, like in the 
    other games, but they are better,
     -Brock too is different (i.e. he is wearing a shirt), and Misty also looks 
    similar to the show (the shirt with the straps on, that, uh, doesn't have 
    straps, no bathing suit for her anymore).
     -The game is Colour GB enhanced for DEFINITE.
    2.3 Starting Pokemon
     Instead of choosing between Squirtle, Charmander and Bulbasaur at the 
    beginning, Professor Oak stops you at the grass (you get to move one step 
    further too. Ooooh :) ) and then captures a Pikachu! He brings it back to his 
    lab and then lets you have it! As for Gary (your rival) if you look at the 
    Pokeball on the desk, he shoves you out of the way and takes it. It's an Eevee! 
    Then you fight. Later in the game, after battling Gary 3 times more, when you 
    face him in the Silph Co. Building, his Eevee will have evolved into one of it's 
    three other forms (Flareon in my case).
    - Gary's Eevee is based on whichever stone you buy first; Thunder, Jolteon; 
    Fire, Flareon; Water, Vaporeon
    - Depending on the Eevee, Gary's 3rd-5th Pokemon change around. Basically, he 
    always has a fire, grass, water and fire. See Gary, below.
    2.4 Pikachu
     Pika-pi! Of course, the game is mostly about Pikachu now, so of course he has 
    new stuff!
     2.4.1 Talking to Pikachu 
    Pikachu follows you around on the map! Unless he fainted. You can talk to him at 
    any time, bringing up a picture of his face, showing if he is happy or sad. If 
    happy, sprite on the main screen will jump up and down, REALLY fast if super 
    happy! If really upset he will turn around and not look at you! When he sees 
    Bill The Pokemaniac as a Pokemon, question marks appear over his head! And when 
    you go to the Pokemon meeting in Vermillion City, love hearts appear when he 
    sees the other Pokemon!
     -Pikachus emotion's are rumoured to change as he imporves level.
     2.4.2 Pikachu's Moves
    Pikachu learns new moves! Chief amongst them is Thunderbolt, which he gets at 
    level 26. Here is the list of his moves:
    Pikachu starts with these 2.
    LV.6 Tail Whip
    LV.8 Thunderwave
    LV.11 Quick Attack
    LV.15 Double Team
    LV.20 Slam
    LV.26 Thunderbolt
    LV.34 Agility
    LV.50 Light Screen
     NOTE: PIKACHU CANNOT LEARN SURF. I feel I must apologise here. I did not try 
    it, merely I took the word of two people who wrote in saying he could. I tried 
    it when someone emailed me saying they couldn't. Pikachu cannot Surf. I 
    apologise for not trying it myself. From now on, I will test everything before 
    adding it as fact.
     2.4.3 Thunder Stone
    Pikachu will NOT use the Thunderstone! Thus leaving this question: How the heck 
    do you get a Raichu? (There are no Pikachu in the game besides the one you start 
    with). Just as on the cartoon; Pikachu chose not to evolve, deciding it would 
    fight Raichu for the honour of Pikachus everywhere. And it whupped ass too.
     2.4.4 Pikachu talks!
    You can't hear it on a ROM (for whatever reason) but there are indeed samples in 
    this game! Pika! Pikachu!
    2.5 Team Rocket
     Yes, it's true, Team Rocket appear in the game! I'm talking Jessie and James 
    here! Just as you are about to leave Mt. Moon they come running over and battle 
    you! They fight with Ekans, Meowth and Koffing! After you beat them they 
    dissappear, like Giovanni. You meet them three times more, in the Casino/Rocket 
    base (just before Giovanni), Lavender Tower (you beat them to save Mr. Fuji, and 
    they have Arbok and Weezing now! (But still just Meowth :) ) And finally the 
    Silph co. Building, just before Giovanni). And yes, just like the cartoon, they 
    are easily beaten!
     For more info on Team Rocket in this game, visit my Team Rocket sanctuary:

    2.6. Anything different during the game
     2.6.1 Nurse Joy
    Nurse Joy is at every Pokemon Centre, with her/their Chansey(s)!
     2.6.2 Pokemon sprites
    Chansey has been redrawn in it's pen at Fuschia City. Also there is an Oddish 
    sprite and a Sandshrew, and a Bulbasaur. The last three are all in a house in 
    Cerulean City.
     2.6.3 Officer Jenny
    Officer Jenny is in Vermillion City, but also in Cerulean (of course, there ARE 
    lots of her, y'know)
     2.6.4 Two Pikachus?
    The hut at the bottom of Fuschia City, inside, there is a Pikachu walking 
     2.6.5 Computer Options/Boxes
    There are some new options on the computer system, they are for the printer.  
    You only get 8 boxes on this version, but the first box stores 40. I have 
    noticed that the game saves much faster when you "change box."
     2.6.6 Trading
    The people you trade with are generally asking for different things in this 
    game. See 2.14.
     2.6.7 Pokemon learn moves faster?
    I'm not sure about anyone besides Pikachu learning new moves, but, I have 
    noticed Pokemon learn skills faster. Butterfree for example gets confusion as 
    soon as it evolves, rather than level 12! It gets all it's other skills faster 
    too! Jeez, how much of an advantage does a Poke Yellow player have over the 
     2.6.8 Casino
     The Pokemon are the most expensive here of any version1 Ouchie! Using my 
    limited ability to translate, I have found out what the Pokemon are for sale:
     Scyther 6500
     Pinsir 6500
     (Taking a guess) Porygon 9999
     Vulpix 1000 (The only place you can get it?)
     Abra 230
     Wigglytuff 2680
     2.6.9 JIGGLYPUFF!
     The Jigglypuff that sings in Viridian City puts Pikachu to sleep! He stops 
    following you around until you talk to him, when he is asleep.
     2.6.10 Old Man In Viridian City
     You know the old guy who blocks your path or something? The guy who shows you 
    how to use a Pokeball? (We'll just ignore Professor Oak using one earlier...) 
    Instead of trying to get Weedle and succeeds, this time he tries to get Rattatta 
    and he succeeds.... Sometimes, anyway.
     2.7 Missing Pokemon
     To ensure that Pokemon Yellow offers no distinct advantage over the previous 
    versions/colours (yeah right, you can get Charmander, Bulbasaur AND Squirtle?? 
    O--k, fair...), 11 Pokémon are unattainable again. Although I can't be certain 
    at this time, here are my guesses as to which ones they are (note there are 13, 
    so at least 2 of these must be wrong, or perhaps not....):
    Weedle (None in Viridian Forest or anywhere else, but many "Bug Catchers" have 
    Kakuna (again, many bug catchers have them)
    Beedrill (One of the Bug Catchers near Cerulean City has two of them though)
    Jynx (though Lorelei of the Elite Four has one. The original place for the trade 
    has been replaced by the "Bulbasaur House.")
    Raichu: Using the Thunderstone on Pikachu does NOT WORK. He will not take it! 
    And since there are No other Pikachus in the game besides your starting 
    one...... ?? (Lt. Surge has one)
    Ekans (No nest on map, unable to find. Jesse has one :) )
    Meowth (No nest on map, unable to find. Team Rocket have one :) )
    Koffing (No nest on map. Unable to find. James has one :) )
     NOTE: If you are going to email me to tell me how to find them, DO NOT BOTHER 
    if you are going to say "Trade them from a friend." DUH! It's pretty obvious 
    you'll have to do that for some!!! That's the point of it!
    I'd say that not being able to get Ekans, Koffing and Meowth is definite (since 
    the game follows the cartoon more so than the others, and they are the villain 
    Pokemon). Jynx probably does exist to trade still, but I can't find it. 
    Electabuzz and Magmar are likely removed to make up for both Scyther and Pinsir 
    (if you remember, Magmar and Pinsir are in the blue game, Scyther and Electabuzz 
    in thr red.). That would leave Raichu as the other possible collectable... 
    leaving the question of how in the hell? :)
    2.8 Extra Pokemon in this version
     I do not mean brand new Pokemon (see the upcoming Silver or Gold, and the 
    cartoon for Togepi :) ), but I mean certain Pokemon you could only get one or 
    the other of in the previous versions.
    a) Scyther and Pinsir
     BOTH are in this version :) Both can be found in the same area in the Safari 
    b) Charmander
     After Nugget Bridge, there is a man standing on a raised bit of land. He tells 
    you he is not a very good trainer, and is considering letting his Charmander go. 
    If you promise to take care of it (answer yes/top choice) you get a Charmander!
     -Charizard can learn HM02 (fly)
    c) Squirtle
     In Vermillion City, after the trip on the St. Anne, talk to Officer Jenny. She 
    tells you she has a Squirtle she caught who has been causing mischief. If you 
    come back after beating Surge for a Thunder Badge, she recognises you as a good 
    trainer and asks you to take it (Choose Yes/top choice).
     -The Squirtle is naughty? "Here Comes The Squirtle Squad" anyone?
    d) Bulbasaur
     In Cerulean City, there is a house with an Oddish, a Sandshrew and a lady stood 
    next to what looks like a Bulbasaur. Talk to her, and she tells you that she 
    looks after injured Pokemon, and that she nursed Bulbasaur back to health. She 
    adds it needs a good trainer. Note: Nothing I have tried so far has gotten me 
    the Bulbasaur. Not making Pikachu jump up and down, not taking Squirtle, 
     -Talk to Bulbasaur: "Bubba Zoar!"
     -She seems similar to Melanie from "Bulbasaur and The Hidden Village."
     - Brian Bruening says you must get the Cascade Badge first. But about 50 people 
    have written in saying that this is not true. Since I got it after finishing the 
    game... I have no idea when the specific time is that you can then go and get it 
    (unless it is finishing the game). Little help here?
     - Animal 88 says that you have to get Squirtle and then take it to her. She 
    says something about Squirtle, and then you get the question.
     - Wesley sez that Ivysaur loses a lot of speed from Bulbasaur, but gains a lot 
    more attack. When it becomes Venusaur, defense falls but attack greatly rises.
     - I think this might be something similar to the episode "Bulbasaur and The 
    Hidden Village." Melanie could be the girl. After all, there is an Oddish 
    e) The four "Tradies" (Gengar, Golem, Alkazam, Machamp)
     They are available within the game! Or.... so I have heard. Somewhere people 
    trade you wither something for them, or something for their "previous form" 
    (example, someone trades you a Graveler, and it then evolves to Golem because it 
    has been traded). Recently I found Machamp!
     i) Machamp - In the tunnel that goes between Vermillion and Cerulean, in the 
    north entrance, a kid trades you Machoke if you give him Cubone.... but what? 
    When traded, Machoke evolves! You got yourself a Machamp!!!
    f) Psyduck
     - Thanks go out to KazK MM for this. Just north of Vermillion City, in the 
    grassy area where there are trainers, there is a pond, and if you surf on it for 
    a while, you get to fight a Psyduck! Psy-ai-ai!
    g) Farfetch'd
     - Thanks to Kazk MM again. South of the hut where you get the Good Rod, there 
    are two grassy areas. In the southern most one (you have to go into the bizarre 
    maze on the left and "cut" through a plant to get to this grassy area), about 
    one in 15 encounters ia a Farfetch'd! You can get them in the wild! Far-far-
     2.8.1 Can you catch 150 Pokemon?
     Regardless of how many of the Pokemon on the list turn out to be catchable, 
    even if you can get all 150, you can't "get" all 150. I count 145 minimum as the 
    very most you can get (without trading with a friend):
     a) You still can onlu have one of the Hitmon's from the karate dojo: Hitmonlee 
    or Hitmonchan
     b) You can still only get either Omanyte or Kabuto (thus only Omastar or 
     c) You only get one Eevee, hence one evolution, so you can;t get the other two. 
    Hoeever, you can SEE two evolutions if you do it right (remember Gary has one.). 
    Of course, look on Bill's computer and you see all three anyway.
     And then there are the missing 13 on the list above.... bringing the number 
    down to 132. Furthermore, it looks like you can get Machamp, but not Gengar, 
    Alkazam or Golem, so in total, I believe you can catch 129 without trading. 
    That's still more than the other colours though. (If I do my maths right, which 
    is unlikely, that'll be 124 on those)
     The most you will ever SEE is 148 without trading/battling another cartridge. 
    (whichever of the ancient Pokemon you don't get, you'll never see in an evolved 
    form, unless you count the bones of the Kabutops in the museum. Which you 
    don't). Without trading, you can never see a Golem either.
    2.9 Mystery Dungeon
     The layout of the last dungeon is slightly different, with more water sections. 
    Also, there are different Pokemon inside from previously. See the guide on 
    catching Pokemon below.
    2.10 Gameboy Printer
     Some options allow you to make copies of pictures in the game on your Gameboy 
    Printer. I have no clue how this works. However, WarriorZx "The Poke Expert" (uh 
    huh) says:
    "To use the printer this what you have to do, first turn the game on (duh!) then 
    press the start button, then push the A button; now you should be at the pokedex 
    screen select the pokemon you want to print, you'll see a screen on the right, 
    select the forth option down (make sure you have your printer plugged in) a 
    screen will pop-up and it should start printing."
     I don't have a printer so I don't know.
    2.11 Pikachu surf game!
     Apparently somewhere in the game is a Pikachu surf type game. You may need to 
    use Pokemon Stadium to get this. I haven't got ANY info on this right now. Just 
    a rumour?
     -Dozens of people have written in to say that you must complete the tournament 
    mode (don't know which though, whether it is lvl 1-30 or 31-50) with you own 
    Pokemon (from your Gameboy cartridge, i.e. not the crud ones in the game (you 
    know, Snorlax with Surf and all that), and when you complete the tournament you 
    get Surfer Pikachu. Transfer it to your Poke Yellow Cart and you're away!
     (Although I have Poke Stadium 1, I don't have the GB adaptor, so I can't try it 
    :( )
    2.12 Beating Trainers
     Due to the change in Pokemon in this game, certain trainers are easier or 
    harder. Here's a guide to some of them.
     a) Brock
     Well, sucks to be you! Pikachu can't do anything against Onix or Geodude! (That 
    hurts anyway) So, get a Caterpie, evolve it to Butterfree (hell, it's easy) and 
    use Confusion on them both, and they'll be dead in no time! Another option 
    people are telling me is to use Mankey, but I never found a reason to. 
    Butterfree destroys them.
     b) Misty
     A breeze. Pikachu = Electric. Misty's Pokemon = Water.
     c) Lt. Surge
     Boy that Raichu is tough. It uses Thunderbolt, and Mega Kick/Punch (could be 
    either). Can it do a Body Slam? Unsure (it hits Pikachu with two on TV). Anyway, 
    here is my suggestion, followed by David Nguyen's, then Brain Bruening's.
     a) I use my Butterfree. It's fast enough just to go before Raichu and I use 
    Sleep Powder. There's about a 50% chance of it affecting him I have found. After 
    that, just keep smashing him with Confusion, hoping he does not wake up. This 
    should do quite well. My Butterfree WAS Level 29. (As you might guess, I love 
    Butterfree. "Bye Bye Butterfree" made me cry. J/K)
     b) Use Diglett or Dugtrio, making sure either of them are over level 20. Keep 
    using the Dig Attack and Raichu should lose within a few hits.
     c) Do the same as above with Geodude (you will have to teach him dig).
     (C'mon, you must remember the cartoon. Pikachu and Raichu had a bitchin' 
    helluva match.)
     d) Erika
     Erika has had a change of Pokemon. The following information is from Sushi. 
    Erika uses Weepinbell, Tangela, Gloom. (If you remember, she used those on the 
    TV show). Seems to me like she is worse in this (on the Blue/Red she has 
    Vileplume and Victreebell instead of Gloom and Weepinbell).
     e) Koga
     Bad-ass trainer number 2 :) Again, Sushi provides the following info. Koga uses 
    four Pokemon, starting with three Venonats. They increase in levels, 40, 42 and 
    46. They all use Toxic (TM 06). His final Pokemon is a level 50 Venomoth! Sushi 
    says that you should use Charizard with Slash or Ember, or a Scyther with Sword 
    Dance and Slash (heh, but who has a Scyther :) ). Psychic attacks and "Rock 
    Slide" are also helpful. 
     (If you remember, Koga used Venonat/moth in the cartoon, but he did have Golbat 
    too). In the original game, Koga used Koffing, Muk, Koffing, Weezing.
     f) Sabrina
     Thanks again to Sushi for the following. Originally she used Kadabra, Mr. Mime, 
    Venomoth and Alkazam. Now she has gone all psychic and uses Abra, Kadabra, and 
    Abra: L50(!) Teleport, Flash, and i think Psywave
    Kadabra: L50(!!) Psywave, Recover, Psychic, and Kinesis
    Alakazam: L50 (holy s*&t!!!) Reflect, Psywave, Psychic, and Recover
    Sushi suggests using Dugtrio (Slash, Dig), Charizard (Slash) and Dodrio (Drill 
    Peck), and suggests that your Pokemon be over lvl 40. 
     My suggestion is to use Gyrados and attack Alkazam at least with Surf. I don't 
    know why, but at the end of the game, when Gary Oak used his Alkazam, my Gyrados 
    always puts it out with one hit using Surf.
     (If you remember the TV show, Sabrina uses Abra, but it evolves into Kadabra 
    during the fight. Totally against the game, but hey :) )
     g) Blaine
     HOW TO GET TO BLAINE: Each trainer in his Gym is stood in front of a computer 
    that asks a trivia question. If you get it wrong, you must face a trainer. If 
    you get it right, the door opens. Regardless, if you beat the trainer the door 
    opens. Being Japanese, you have to guess.
     The following info comes from Sushi again. In the original Blaine has 
    Growlithe, Rapidash, Ponyta, and Arcanine. However, he uses the following now:
    L48 Ninetales: Uses Confuse Ray, Flamethrower, Tail Whip, and Quick
    L50 Rapidash: Uses Take Down, Fire Spin, Stomp, and Growl.
    L54(!)Arcanine: Uses Take Down, Reflect, Flamethrower, and Fire Blast.
     Sushi recommends using anything you got from Seafoam Islands (my example: 
    Articuno :) ), since most are water based (I would also recommend Cloyster and 
    Blastoise). He defeated Ninetales with Gyrados's Surf. A sinmilar story with 
    Rapidash, using Charizard Slash also. Arcanine is the toughest (agreed). Sushi 
    used a Chansey with it's huge amount of hits, and when Arcanine uses take down 
    it damages itself too. It killed itself :) 
     (In the cartoon (SPOILER) Blaine uses Magmar)
     h) Giovanni
     Sushi provides info on the final Gym Leader ("The Boss" :) ):
    L50 Dugtrio: Uses Earthquake, Sand Attack, Dig, and Fissure.
    L53 Persian: Uses Fury Swipes, Double Team, Screech, and Slash.
    L53 Nidoqueen: Uses Thunder, Earthquake, Tail Whip, (unsure if it has 4th
    L55 Nidoking: Uses Thunder, Double Kick, Earthquake, and Leer.
    L55 Rhydon: Uses Fury Attack, Earthquake, Horn Drill, and Rock Slide.
     The only difference being that he has a Persian instead of a Rhyhorn (to 
    Meowth's lament :)). Gyrados or flying Pokemon will defeat Dugtrio easily. 
    Fighting Pokemon (Hitmonlee Rolling Kick) should defeat Persian no trouble. 
    Nidoqueen and King are hard. The best strategy is to use Hypnosis or other forms 
    of sleep, and then Dream Eater if available (Sushi used Kadabra with hypnosis 
    and the Dream Eater TM. I used Haunter who had Eater anyway. Woulda used Gengar 
    if possible :( ). Rhydon can be taken down easily with water attacks.
     (Ash never faces Giovanni for badge 8 on the cartoon. He faces.... sigh... Team 
     The group I used against these four in my guide below were/are: Pikachu, 
    Gyrados, Haunter, Articuno, Charizard, and a jobber (I always take a weak 
    Pokemon along, and allow it to gain a lot of XP. If I definitely want to win I 
    take either Blastoise or Venusaur. Usually Venusaur because Blastoise kinda just 
    stands there if Gyrados is on :) ).
     (Moves supplied by David Lee)
     i) Lorelei
    Dewgong: Take Down, Rest, Aurora Beam, Bubblebeam
    Cloyster: Spike Cannon, Ice Beam, Supersonic, Clamp
    Slowbro: Surf, Withdraw, Amnesia, Psychic
    Jynx: Double Slap, Thrash, Lovely Kiss, Ice Punch
    Lapras: Body Slam, Confuse Ray, Blizzard, Hydro Pump
    Here is how I defeated them. Dewgong: One hit with Thunder. Cloyster: One hit 
    with Thunder. Slowbro: One hit with Thunder. Jynx: Put to sleep with Haunter, 
    then constant Dream Eater. Lapras: Two hits with Thunderbolt. Oh, in case you 
    couldn't tell, the electric attacks were by Pikachu :)
     j) Bruno
    Onix: Slam, Screech, Dig, Rock Slide
    Hitmonchan: Ice Punch, Thunder Punch, Fire Punch, Double Team
    Hitmonlee: Double Kick, Double Team, Mega Kick, Hi Jump Kick (or Jump Kick?)
    Onix: Slam, Screech, Earthquake, Rock Slide
    Machamp: Karate Chop, Leer, Submission, Strength
    Here's my way: Both Onixes are killed in one hit by Surf from Gyrados. The rest 
    are put to sleep by Haunter and Dream Eater kills them all with one hit.
     k) Agatha
    Gengar: Psychic, Mega Drain, Confuse Ray, Substitute
    Golbat: Leech Life, Wing Attack, Supersonic, Toxic
    Haunter: Lick, Confuse Ray, Hypnosis, Dream Eater
    Arbok: Acid, Wrap, Screech, Glare
    Gengar: Psychic, Confuse Ray, Hypnosis, Dream Eater
    This is a tough match. I started with Pikachu and hit Thunder on Gengar. He then 
    usually uses Substitute, so a Thunderbolt cancels it out. It's best to use 
    Articuno and do either Ice Beam or Blizzard on him, it beats him fast. Sometimes 
    she drags Gengar out and sends in Golbat. Golbat and Arbok were easily beaten by 
    my Haunter (Hypnosis, Dream Eater twice). The ghosts can be whupped by 
    Articuno's ice and Pikachu's electricity. But the last Gengar is really hard.
     l) Lance
    Gyarados: Bite(?), Leer, Dragon Rage, Hyper Beam
    Dragonair: Slam, Thunder Wave, Thunder Bolt, Hyper Beam
    Dragonair: Wrap: Ice Beam, Bubblebeam, Hyper Beam
    Areodactyl: Swift, Wing Attack, Fly, Hyper Beam
    Dragonite: Fire Blast, Thunder, Blizzard, Hyper Beam
    Lance's dragons are not actually that hard. Even Thunderbolt from Pikachu kills 
    Gyrados in one hit. Articuno's ice beam kills both Dragonairs in one hit. 
    Pikachu's thunder kills Aerodactyl in one hit. Dragonite can be tough.... until 
    he's put to sleep by Haunter :) 
     m) Gary Oak (Rival)
    Gary changes his Pokemon depending on what Eevee he ends up with, but here is 
    how I beat the team he uses:
    Sandslash is beaten with one Surf from Gyrados. Alkazam I usually beat with 
    Articuno, one or two Blizzards should do it. Magneton I always find hard to beat 
    for some reason, use Pikachu against him to cencel out his attacks perhaps, but 
    then again so are yours. I usually just go to my backup plan, Haunter. Exeggutor 
    burns well :) One or Two Flamethrowers. Cloyster fails to remember what happened 
    to Lorelei's and gets Thunder between the eyes. Finally, GAry's "best Pokemon," 
    Flareon, comes in..... and gets Surf twice and is kaput.
    Gary's Team changes as follows: The first two are always the same. Then, if he 
    has Flareon, the team is as above. If Jolteon, the team is Ninetales, Exeggutor, 
    Cloyster, Jolteon. If he has Vaporeon, the team is Exxegutor, Ninetales, 
    Magneton, Vaporeon.
     That's the game done! But of course there's more to do afterwards! Ya' gotta 
    catch 'em all! 
    2.13 How to find certain one-off Pokemon
     What I mean is how to find the Pokemon you can only have one of. Obviously, I 
    havn't included Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu, the rare birds, or 
    Mewtwo. This is a section for me to try and answer queries.
     a) Lickitung: Catch wild in the Mystery Dungeon. The one you trade has now 
    moved tower and is for Dugtrio, not Slowbro.
     b) Tangela: It turns out that this Pokemon is not a one off, and you can get 
    them in the Safari Zone. The man in the tower previously mentioned does not 
    trade you Tangela for Parasect, it instead works the other way around.
      -Cait Sith = It is not a one off in Blue or Red either, you can get them South 
    Of Pallet.
     c) Jynx: See 2.7. There is also a rumour that Jynx can be caught at Seafoam 
    Islands, but I have never seen one.
     d) Mr. Mime: You trade Clefairy, not Abra.
     e) Pikachu: Alright, I get a LOT of emails telling me that whomever has found a 
    wild Pikachu. Sigh. Some people have found them in Viridian Forest. Some in the 
    Power Plant. One in the Indigo Plateau. Urrrgh. Why exactly do you think you get 
    PIKACHU at the beginning? Now, something more promising was speculated by 
    William Chau, something I was also thinking about. The guy in the hut south of 
    Fuschia who has a Pikachu. Could it be you somehow bribe him for/steal/beat up 
    and take (g) his Pikachu? Then evolve it into Raiiii-chuuu? Who knows.
     -According to "SithLord" this house is for the Gameboy Printer. Makes sense. 
    The computer type thing in the corner does look like a printer. But why is there 
    a Pikachu?
    2.14 Traders: Who Wants What
     Hopefully in time every tradee will be added here. For now though:
     Boy in house near Viridian Forest: Trade him Clefairy, get Mr. Mime.
     Boy in tunnel entrance near Cerulean City: Trade him Cubone, get Machoke 
    (becomes Machamp)
     Old Man in Cinnabar Laboratory: Trade him Golduck, get Rhydon.
     Lady in Cinnabar Laboratory: Trade her Growlithe, get Dewgong.
     Lab technician in Cinnabar Laboratory: Trade him Kangashkhan, get Muk.
     Chef in Fuschia Watchtower: Trade him Tangela, get Parasect.
    2.15 GYRADOS
     GYRADOS CAN BE CAUGHT IN THE WILD!!!!! Yes! Outside the Warden's house in 
    Fuschia City, at the pond you usually only get Magikarps and Poliwags from, if 
    you use the Super Rod, about 1 in ten fights will be against a GYRADOS! My 
    favourite Pokemon is now collectable in the wild! I choose 6 of 'em! (And then 
    Pikachu defeats every single one. Flying AND Water? It's an electric magnet :( )

    2.17 New Pokedex entries
     All of the Pokedex text entries are also brand new. Some of them are pretty 
    good. Some are very insulting (it implies Caterpie stinks, not meaning it sucks, 
    but that it smells. Bastards). 
    3.1. How to help this guide
     If you know anything that is unclear in this guide, please email me with the 
    information, and if it's kosher, I'll put it in and credit you! Specifically:
     -Which Pokemon on my missing list are actually obtainable?
     -Where do you get Gengar, Golem, Alkazam?
     -Did I miss any new features?
     -Tips to beat the trainers (Elite Four only now please. Well, Gary too.)
     -Locations of Pokemon (YELLOW VERSION ONLY!)
     Email any suggestions for improvement or new sections, or answers, to 
     Please note that hoaxes are pretty pointless. I've had 6 people email me saying 
    "I GOT RAICHU!" yet, when I ask them to say WHERE and HOW, most never reply. One 
    said "Uh, I dunno." So, it appears there may be a possibility of Raichu. But I 
    won't add it until I know for sure. Also, people keep saying "they got Mew," and 
    then just sending me the extract from the Mew FAQ. Lovely. Can we have some kind 
    of better confirmation? 
    3.1.1 Answered questions
     -Is MissingNo in this version? Wesley says no. Anyone else?
     -Is Mew in  the game? I got a picture from the ROM the other day mailed to me 
    that indeed shows Mew on the Pokedex, newly drawn. It appears the answer is 
    "yes." However, it could have simply been traded from another cart, or got via 
    Gameshark, BUT, since it looks like a ROM image, and as yet there is no Emulator 
    that runs Pokemon where you can trade, I'd say Mew is in it. Phew!

    3.3 Legal bit
     This FAQ is copyright Jedah, aka Mr. Schofield, and taking any information and 
    using it for profit without asking me/sending me a share of the profit will 
    result in you getting hit with a big hammer, or, lawsuit. There's a simple thing 
    called ASKING. I always reply to any email, provided it is in good taste.
     -THIS FAQ MAY NOT BE MODIFIED IN ANY WAY EXCEPT BY ME! It was the first of it's 
    kind generally available on the internet and I pride myself on that!

    3.5 Thanks go to...
    I get a LOT of feedback on this guide. I'd like to thank everyone who emails me 
    with polite questions, praise and advice. It's for people like those guys why 
    I'm doing it. Some people have been fantastic contributors, others provide less, 
    but sometimes more valuable info. A neutral grunt goes out to those that email 
    me to tell me they got Raichu or the 13 missing Pokemon. An evil growl goes out 
    to those telling me things from 5 editions ago, because they are getting their 
    guide from unofficial sources. And a little mention to Joanna, who really made 
    me laugh (not evilly or anything).

    3.6 "Mew Idiot!"
    I'll apologise for this section in advance. At time of it's creation I'm being 
    thrown out of university for some crap reason or other, I'm lonely, poor*, etc. 
    So from now on all lame rumours I get sent will be put here. At least this will 
    give some people a chance to be in this FAq, in a way, and that's all they want 
    -Pikachu evolves by level
    -Raichu in the power plant
    -Get Mew next to a sign in the Viridian Forest that says "Gary Was Here, Ash Is 
    A Loser"
    -Stupid St Anne trick to get Mew
    -Togepi from Cinnabar Islands
    -Raichu given to you by Surge
    -Fight new boss, Professor Oak
    -Can catch Meowth
    -Weedles can be caught
    -Gengar can be caught in Lavender Tower
    -Pikachu learns Surf (grr)
    -Game Domain actually asked me if they could use my work (HAH!)
    -Hogou is in the game as the 4th rare bird.
    -You get Togepi if you beat Misty again
    -"Duh, I got a Yoshi"
    -Pikablu. Nuff said.
    Now, Togepi and Hogou could be in there somewhere, but it is HIGHLY unlikely. As 
    are the rest.
    * but still wealthy-ish. Makes no sense....
    3.7 And Finally....
    Why did I take the Gameshark codes out? They dont work on the English version, 
    so that should save a lot of "THESE CODES DON'T WORK" things. The game really 
    does rule in English.
     As you may note, I don't really care if you put this guide on your site 
    anymore. It didn't stop people before. Too much hassle over jobbers who think 
    they're the shit because they ripped off my guide. So what? Whatcha gun' do, 
    brag to your bitch about it?
