=========================
1. Things You Should Know
=========================

This section is dedicated to helping you actually start the game. Most of it is
covered in the pre-game tutorial.

============
1a. Controls
============

Up, Down, Left, Right - Controls basic movement. Allows you to scroll through
      (D-Pad)           various options and such.

L and R               - Bring up the Help screens or use them in the menu.

A                     - Use this button to confirm a choice. This button will

                        be the one you'll be using the most often, because it
                        it's the button that controls all decisions.

B                     - This button is used if you want to cancel a choice. You
                        will use this button more when you obtain the Running
                        Shoes (or if you mess up a lot).

Select                - Once you get Key Items, you can set one to Select. This
                        allows you to use that item while out of battle without
                        having to open up the Start Menu each and every time.
                        Select also allows you to change the order of items in
                        your pack. Simply press Select on an item, use the

                        D-Pad to scroll through your pack, and press Select
                        again to set its new position.

Start                 - Brings up the Start Menu.

1b. Version-Exclusive Pokemon

===============
1c. What's New?
===============

This section is dedicated to pointing out brand-new things that make their
debut in this game, as well as things that have changed from the color games.
Things like the following:

1.  When one of your Active Pokemon levels up, blue lines will appear from it.
2.  If another Pokemon levels up but isn't active, its picture and new level
    will appear in the upper right corner.
3.  When you capture a Pokemon, stars will appear around the ball's center.
4.  The items now have pictures to show what they look like.
5.  When you view your Pokemon's stats, the Pokemon's icon will jump based on
    your current HP and status. Even their cries change. That's cool.
6.  After you give Celio the Sapphire, head to the Elite Four. Have fun!
7.  Text is now color-coded: blue for boys, red for girls, black for info.
8.  There's a Revive instead of a HP Up in Mt. Moon (gonna need help w/these).
9.  You can move an item from a Pokemon straight to the PC.
10. When you capture an extra Pokemon, it will tell you what Box it went to.
11. You get 600 steps instead of 500 while in the Safari Zone.
12. Elevators are now time-based. You'll be stuck there longer depending on the
    distance between selected floors.
13. You can no longer deposit into your PC anything that isn't a disposable
    Item (no Key Items, no Poke Balls of any kind, no nothing).
14. The Lapras you receive in Silph Co. is Lv.25 instead of Lv.15.
15. Revive a fossil and find that it's only Lv.5 instead of Lv.30!
16. Dragonair can now be found by fishing with the Super Rod in Safari Zone.
17. The Moon Stone in Pokemon Mansion has been moved.
18. The first question in Cinnabar Gym has been changed (for clarification).
19. The last question in Cinnabar Gym has been slightly changed.
20. Moltres now resides in Mt. Ember instead of Victory Road.
21. Indigo Plateau's Pokemon Center now has Gym music.
22. Jr. Trainers are the only Trainers from the color games that no longer
    exist. They are now called Picnicker (female) and Camper (male).
23. The Unknown Dungeon is now called "Cerulean Cave."
24. The TM/HM list copies that of Ruby and Sapphire.
25. Text for Hail damage has been changed (pelted instead of stricken).
26. When you white out, it walks you through what happens.
27. You can see items being used on your Pokemon.
28. When you load your game, it will recap recent events in case you forgot.
29. Gamblers are now called Gamers.
30. The TM and Berry pockets in your bag have been replaced with Key Items.
31. Team Rocket will vanish from Mt. Moon and Rocket Game Corner once you beat
    them there.
32. In the color games, if you had the Dig TM in your pack, the man who owned
    it will say he doesn?t need it. However, if you used it, he will continue
    to chastise Team Rocket. Not so in this game. (thanks to The Wierdo for
    changes 29-32).
33. PP remaining will change in color as you use it up.

1d. Abilities
=============

time) of 76 different Abilities (plus two you can only get through using a
cheat device, so 78 if you count that) that are designed to help it in battle.

1e. Ability: Soundproof
=======================

o------------------------------------------------o      Grasswhistle
| The Soundproof Ability negates all moves that  |      Growl
| are based on sound. It's helpful to know which |      Heal Bell
| moves fall into this category, so I've taken   |      Howl
| the liberty of composing this list of moves.   |      Hyper Voice
| Each attack listed to the right is sound-based |      Metal Sound
| and will fail if used on a Pokemon that sports |      Perish Song
| the Soundproof Ability. Although no Pokemon so |      Roar
| far can naturally have the Cacophony Ability,  |      Screech
| it works just like Soundproof. If none of the  |      Sing
| blocked moves are different, why did they      |      Snore
| exclude it? Will it be in Diamond and Pearl?   |      Supersonic

======================
1g. Special Conditions
======================

Taken from the Pokemon TCG, I use the term "Special Condition" to refer to
major status effects. These can only be inflicted one at a time.

BRN - Burn. Attack stat is cut in half. Damaged by 1/8 max HP between turns. Go
      to a Pokemon Center or use a Rawst Berry, Lum Berry, Burn Heal, Full
      Heal, or Full Restore to cure this condition.

FNT - Faint. Cannot be used in battle. Go to a Pokemon Center or use a Revive,
      Rare Candy (at Lv.99 or lower), or Max Revive to cure this condition.*

FRZ - Freeze. Cannot attack. If Flamethrower or Fire Blast is used on the
      Frozen Pokemon, said Pokemon will defrost. Also, if said Pokemon uses
      Flame Wheel or Sacred Fire, user will also defrost. May defrost after a
      random number of turns. Go to a Pokemon Center or use a Lum Berry, Ice
      Heal, Full Heal, or Full Restore to cure this condition.

PAR - Paralyze. Speed is cut by 75%, 20% chance per turn of being immobilized.
      Have the move Smellingsalt used on you, go to a Pokemon Center, or use a
      Cheri Berry, Lum Berry, Parlyz Heal, Full Heal, or Full Restore to cure
      this condition.

PSN - Poison. HP will drop by 1/16 between turns. The exception to this is if
      the PSN status is inflicted by the use of Toxic or Poison Fang, in which
      case poison damage begins at 1/16 max HP and increases between turns.
      Outside of battle, each Pokemon inflicted with the PSN status will lose 1
      HP for every four steps taken by the Trainer. Go to a Pokemon Center, or
      use a Pecha Berry, Lum Berry, Full Heal, Full Restore, or an Antidote to
      cure this condition.

SLP - Sleep. Cannot attack unless Sleep Talk or Snore is used. Will wear off in
      battle after a random amount of turns. If the SLP status is inflicted by
      use of Rest, it will wear off in two turns (one if the Pokemon has the
      Early Bird Ability). Go to a Pokemon Center, or use a Chesto Berry, Lum
      Berry, Full Heal, Poke Flute, Full Restore, or an Awakening to cure this
      condition.

* - While FNT can be considered a Special Condition, when I tell you to inflict
a Special Condition (like for catching legendaries), I do not mean to inflict
the FNT status, even though a few moves do just that (Horn Drill, for example).

=======================
1h. Evil Status Effects
=======================

These status effects are evil because there's no limit to how many you can put
on a Pokemon. To cure the evil status effects, simply switch out... if you can.
They have no abbreviations, but the list goes like this:

1. Attract.    The foe of the opposite gender falls in love with the user. As a
               result, they have a 50% chance of not attacking. Don't want to
               hurt the ones you love, right? Use the move Attract to obtain
               this effect. Wears off when the user of Attract is recalled.

2. Confuse.    The foe becomes more confused than a hungry baby at a topless
               club, which means there's a 50% that the foe will hurt itself.
               Use Swagger, Flatter, Confuse Ray, Supersonic, Confusion,
               Psybeam, or Water Pulse to obtain this effect. Will wear off
               after a random amount of turns. You may also use a Persim Berry,
               Lum Berry, Full Heal, or Full Restore to cure this condition.
               Note that you can also confuse yourself by using Petal Dance,
               Outrage, or Thrash.

3. Curse.      The foe is afflicted by a vicious curse that takes 1/4 of a
               foe's max HP between turns at a one-time cost of 50% the user's
               max HP. Have a Ghost-type use the move Curse to obtain this
               effect.

4. Disable.    The foe's last successfully performed move is disabled,
               preventing its use for a random number of turns. Use the move
               Disable to obtain this effect. Only one move can be Disabled per
               Pokemon at any given time.

5. Encore.     The last move the foe used will be repeated over 2-6 turns. Use
               the move Encore to obtain this effect.

6. Flinch.     This effect can only be seen if the Pokemon trying to obtain
               this effect is faster than its foe. The foe will retract in fear
               for one turn, preventing them from attacking. Equip a Pokemon
               with the King's Rock item or use Astonish, Bite, Extrasensory,
               Fake Out, Headbutt, Needle Arm, Rock Slide, or Sky Attack to
               obtain this effect.

7. Imprison.   The foe can no longer use moves the user knows. Use Imprison
               on a Pokemon that shares a move with your Pokemon to obtain this
               effect.

8. Seeded.     Seeds are planted on the foe's body, sucking their life away at
               a rate of 1/16 the foe's max HP between turns. Note that Grass-
               types cannot be seeded. Use Leech Seed to obtain this effect.

9. Taunted.    The foe becomes enraged, and in their blind fury can only use
               moves that cause direct damage for two turns. Use Taunt to
               obtain this effect.

10. Tormented. The Pokemon cannot use the same move twice in a row. Use the
               move Torment to obtain this effect.

10. Trapped.   The Pokemon cannot escape battle.  Most will wear off between
               3-5 turns after use. Have either the Arena Trap* or Shadow Tag
               Ability, be a Metal-type against a Pokemon with the Magnet Pull
               Ability, or use Bind, Fire Spin, Ingrain, Mean Look, Sand Tomb,
               Spider Web, Whirlpool, or Wrap to obtain this effect.

               * Flying-types, as well as those with the Levitate and Run Away
               Abilities, are not affected by Arena Trap.

1k. Frequently Asked Questions
==============================

Ha! I remembered to include it this time!

Question: IS THIS GAME IDENTICAL TO POKEMON RED AND BLUE?

  Answer: Well, not exactly. While 99% of the text, Pokemon locations, and
          Trainers are the same, tiny bits and pieces have been added (like
          names for the Trainers (Picnicker Kelsey, for example)). For more
          information on the changes that have been made, I refer you to the
          "What's New?" section.

Question: I CAN'T MAKE UP MY MIND. WHICH VERSION DO I GET?

  Answer: Get LeafGreen. If you don't have anyone to trade with, LeafGreen can
          net you the most complete Pokedex. And besides, LeafGreen has all the
          cool Pokemon anyway (like Ninetales. If you disagree, you are wrong).

Question: I DON'T HAVE FIRERED/LEAFGREEN. WHAT POKEMON AM I LOSING OUT ON?

  Answer: See section 1b, "Version-Exclusive Pokemon."

Question: I WANT 184 RARE CANDIES, MAX REVIVES, AND MAX ELIXIRS!

  Answer: Too bad. No glitch from the original games works in the new versions,
          including the one that let you get Mew. Nintendo made sure of that
          (even moved a Gambler (Gamer) to be absolutely certain).

Question: CAN I GET MY OLD [Pokemon] BACK FROM [Pokemon game for GB{C}]?

  Answer: No, you can't. As of this game's release, you can get every Pokemon
          back except Mew (unless you've got Pokemon Emerald and the ticket
          that lets you get to "World's Edge Island" where Mew resides) and
          Celebi (unless you trade it from someone who has the JP Colosseum
          Bonus Disc in which you get Celebi). Most Pokemon from Johto are
          found in Pokemon Colosseum, which can also connect to Pokemon Ruby &
          Sapphire. You can connect this game to Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire, but
          not right away; you have to beat the Elite Four and complete a
          certain quest first. You also can't have any series 2 (152-251) or
          series 3 (252-386) Pokemon until you beat the Elite Four.

Question: MOM WON'T BUY THIS GAME FOR ME. LINK ME TO THE ROM!

  Answer: Nah...

Question: FISHING IN RUBY & SAPPHIRE SUCKED! DO THEY KEEP THE SAME METHOD?

  Answer: Actually, no! True to the original, simply use the rod to fish.

Question: MY POKEMON STOPS EVOLVING, BUT I DIDN'T PRESS B! WHAT'S GOING ON?

  Answer: Your Pokemon has a friendship-based evolution, and if it were to
          evolve, your Pokedex would go haywire and explode because it doesn't
          know what your new Pokemon is. To stop this from happening, beat the
          Elite Four and have at least 70 Pokemon owned in your Pokedex to get
          the National Pokedex, which allows entries for all 386 Pokemon. After
          that, just level up.

Question: DO THE BUTTON-PRESSING TRICKS FOR CATCHING POKEMON STILL WORK?

  Answer: They never worked. Nintendo has confirmed that there are no existing
          "tricks" for catching Pokemon. Press all the buttons you want when
          the Poke Ball is being thrown and you can press A and B 500 times for
          all I care. It won't get you anywhere.

Question: WHAT STARTER SHOULD I PICK? WHICH IS THE EASIEST/HARDEST TO RAISE?

  Answer: Professor Oak's got that area covered. Bulbasaur's the easiest to
          raise, because the first two Gyms get thrashed by it, and it evolves
          to its final form the earliest. Squirtle takes a little more time
          than Bulbasaur, but has an easy time against the first Gym, but a
          hard time with the second. Charmander takes the longest to raise and
          has weak attacks for most of its technique-learning life, and gets
          the crap stomped out of it by the first two Gyms. You'll need
          assistance if you pick her.

Question: WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY "COLOR GAMES" AND "METAL GAMES?"

  Answer: Red and Blue (colors), Gold and Silver (metals).

Question: ALT + 130 FOR 額

  Answer: Yeah, I know. It's just that some browsers out there can't see it,
          and no one really cares anyway. "Pokemon" is just fine.

Question: I'M POOR! WHAT'S A FAST WAY TO GET MONEY?

  Answer: If you've defeated the Elite Four at least once, the best spot for
          earning cash is near Selphy's house at Resort Gorgeous, by far.
          Position yourself on the western beach so Jacki (far left), Destin
          (top), Gillian (center), and Celina (below Gillian) are all visible,
          then use the VS Seeker. Assuming all four want to battle, defeating
          them will get you 21,368 money. Activate the Amulet Coin in the four
          battles for a total of 42,736 money. After that, take your 100 steps
          (it should only be around 60 since you have to walk to each person)
          and use the VS Seeker again. You can have over 500,000 money in less
          than thirty minutes. How cool is that?

          Don't have the Amulet Coin? It's upstairs in the building connecting
          Cycling Road and Celadon City. You must have at least 40 Pokemon
          owned in the Pokedex, so make sure you meet that requirement.

Question: THEY TOLD ME MY POKEMON HAS POKERUS. WHAT IS THAT?

  Answer: You have been graced with the most awesome thing since the invention
          of held items, the Pokerus. Pokerus is shown as PKRS on the Summary
          Screen (and only there), and you can find it where a Special
          Condition would normally be shown (it'll only appear if there is no
          Special Condition). What it does is double EV points given from a
          particular battle. For example, for every Diglett your Pokemon
          slaughters, it gets 1 point in Speed. If the slaughterer is infected
          with PKRS, it would receive double the points, or 2. Now let's say
          that this certain Pokemon is equipped with the Macho Brace for double
          points again, or 4. This means that Diglett will give you 4 Speed
          points every time you kill it. Assuming all you run into is Diglett,
          and you always kill it in one shot, it would take you about 20-30
          minutes to complete Speed EV training.

Question: POKERUS EQUALS GREAT... BUT THERE HAS TO BE A CATCH, RIGHT?

  Answer: All good things must come to an end. The same holds true for PKRS.
          After about three days (sometimes less), the PKRS will vanish. Those
          that were already infected with PKRS cannot be infected again.
          However, there is a way to preserve your PKRS: Simply get someone you
          generally don't really care about (in my case, a Lv.5 Pichu, which
          will be how I refer to the sucker you infect), and infect them with
          PKRS. Drop it in the Box (mark it with all four marks so you can
          easily find it) and let it sit there forever. It won't infect your
          Box Pokemon, but the PKRS won't leave, either. Whenever you have
          someone new to infect, bring out Pichu and infect the new guy. Once
          that's done, drop it off again. It's usually helpful to infect
          multiple Pichu so you don't ever have to worry about the PKRS
          mysteriously running out on you.

Question: HOW DO I INFECT MY OTHER POKEMON?

  Answer: Simply keep a healthy Pokemon on your team along with the one with
          PKRS. The healthy Pokemon will eventually become infected (and so
          will your whole team).

Question: I COULDN'T GET TO A WONDERSPOT MACHINE. HOW DO I GET DEOXYS?

  Answer: Like I said before, if you don't have a friend who has one and you
          didn't get one of your own, you *have* to cheat to get it.

Question: WHERE DO I GET A DRAGON SCALE?

  Answer: Beat Double Mode in the Trainer Tower on Seven Island (once). You can
          also get it on the way to Ruin Valley. Simply Surf to the right and
          go as far down as you can (thanks to The Wierdo for this tip).


Question: HOW DO I GET TO FOUR, FIVE, SIX, AND SEVEN ISLAND?

  Answer: You need the Rainbow Pass, which is given to you by Celio. He will
          fork it over after you have the National Pokedex. If you don't have
          it, get 70 owned in your Pokedex and go see Professor Oak.

Question: I BEAT THE ELITE FOUR. WHERE IS LORELEI?

  Answer: She's in the back of Icefall Cave. You'll need Waterfall to get to
          her, and the HM to use it is found in the cave. If none of your
          Pokemon can learn Waterfall, catch a Pokemon there. Most can learn
          it.

Question: WHERE IS THE KEY ITEM 'TEA?'

  Answer: First floor of Pokemon Mansion, talk to the old lady.

Question: HOW DO I GET THE MYSTERYTICKET? I WANT A LUGIA/HO-OH!

  Answer: I don't know, stop asking me. We don't have a legitimate means to get
          the Mysteryticket yet, so quit e-mailing me about it!

Question: HOW DID YOU GET POLIWAG, FLAREON, ETC. BEFORE VIRIDIAN FOREST?

  Answer: I'm surprised you guys can't figure this out. This is what I did.
          I started playing LeafGreen with a completely different team than
          what you see (what you see is my second playthrough team). I took six
          Pokemon, and bred them so I got babies with good natures. I taught
          them some TMs and attached them with cool items (like other TMs and
          the Master Ball). Then I traded them all to a FireRed game. After
          that, I started a new game in LeafGreen. After gaining the ability to
          trade, I caught six Pidgey/Rattata off of Route 1, then traded them
          to FireRed in exchange for the six babies I bred in my previous game
          of LeafGreen. Tada, Lv.5 beatdown squad.

Got an idea for a question? E-mail me and I'll consider it.

=====================================
2. New Beginnings and the First Badge
=====================================

Major Objectives
----------------

* Get acquainted with the controls of the game.
* Meet Professor Oak and receive a Pokemon.
* Meet the professor's grandson, and have your first battle with him.
* Travel through Viridian Forest.
* Earn your first Badge.

Okay, so you're ready to begin your adventure. Begin by turning on your GBA
[SP] and watch the intro screen, re-done (the old one was better, in my
opinion). After you press Start on the title screen, you'll see a few screens
that explain the buttons "in the order of their importance." Then you'll see a
couple screens that's like a pep talk of sorts to get you raring to go on your
new adventure. After this, Professor Oak will introduce himself and Pokemon.

First off, you'll need to tell the professor if you're [going to be playing as
a] male or female. After selecting a gender, you will be prompted to name
yourself. After this, Professor Oak will introduce his grandson and prompt you
to name him. Do so. I called him Gary. And I don't want to hear any "BUT THAT
ISNT HIS NAME U NUB" nonsense. I know that already. For the sake of the game,
I'm going to refer to that young man from here on out as Gary. Don't like it?

-----------------------------> TOO BAD. <----------------------------------

The rest of Oak's speech is garbage.

Before we really get into this, there's something I must say. Be absolutely
sure to talk to and check EVERYTHING. And I mean EVERYTHING. Signs, people,
everything. The reason for this is because of an item you get later. If you
want to complete this item, you'll need to do these things beforehand so you
won't have to come back later.

Now that you've control of yourself, it's time for the menu tutorial. Press
Start and you'll find a list of options.

The first option is for your pack. You don't have any items yet, so it's pretty
bland. You'll be getting many, many items to fill this baby up later on.

The choice below that is your name. This is where you go to see your Trainer
ID, how many Poke Dollars (referred to henceforth as 'money') you currently
have, and how many Badges you've earned. Press A to see the back - the entire
thing's blank... for now. Press A to exit, or B to flip it back to the front.

The next selection is the most important one - Save. Use this to save your
progress. If you don't, you'll regret it.

Below Save is Options. You can change the various options of the game. From top
to bottom, here's what they do:

1. Text Speed.        Cycle left or right to change how fast text appears. The
                      default choice is medium speed, and varies from slow to
                      medium to fast.

2. Battle Scene.      Use this to decide if you want to see the attacks'
                      animation (on) or not (off). 'On' is default.

3. Battle Style.      You can choose to be able to switch out when you faint
                      one of your foe's Pokemon (Switch) or sit there and wait,
                      like in Colosseum and Link Battles (Set). The Switch
                      option is default.

4. Sound.             You can choose to hear the sound through one speaker
                      (Monaural) or two (Stereo). Of course, unless you're
                      wearing headphones, this option's totally useless.

5. Button Mode.       Have them remain as help buttons (Help), have L and R
                      function as left and right, respectively, in menu screens
                      (LR), or have the L button function as A (L=A). "Help" is
                      default.

6. Frame.             Choose one of ten borders to be used for all text boxes
                      and menus. Type 1 is default.

The very last option is Cancel. Use that or press A, B, or Start to exit.

Okay, now that we've finished with that, you can actually maneuver around now!
You find yourself in your room. Walk to your PC and press A to turn it on.
Select "Item Storage" and then "Withdraw Item." Do this in any Pokemon Center
to withdraw items you have stored in your PC. Right now, it only contains a
Potion, which restores the HP of one Pokemon by 20. Press A on the Potion and
select "Withdraw." You don't have a Pokemon to "Give" the Potion to (and even
if you did, Potions aren't hold items, so it would do nothing anyway), so take
your item, close out the PC, head downstairs, and go out of your house.

===============================================
2a. Pallet Town - Shades of Your Journey Await!
===============================================

Try to head north out of the town, and you'll be stopped by Professor Oak. It's
dangerous to travel alone! He'll escort you to his laboratory, where Gary
awaits. Professor Oak says that you can take one of his three Pokemon that sit
to your right. Gary will whine because you get to pick first, and Professor Oak
tells him to know his role. Proceed to choose your partner. From left to right,
it's Bulbasaur, Squirtle, Charmander.

Here are their evolutionary lines:

Bulbasaur  -> (Lv.16) -> Ivysaur    (Lv.32) -> Venusaur
Squirtle   -> (Lv.16) -> Wartortle  (Lv.36) -> Blastoise
Charmander -> (Lv.16) -> Charmeleon (Lv.36) -> Charizard

Bulbasaur's line is all Grass/Poison, and Squirtle's is pure Water. Charmander
and Charmeleon are both pure Fire, but gains a Flying type when Charmeleon
evolves.

After choosing your starter, you'll get to name it. Joyous day.

Gary's starter depends on yours. If you pick Bulbasaur, he'll take Charmander.
If you choose Charmander, he'll want Squirtle, and if you decide on Squirtle,
he opts for Bulbasaur. Now that you're both in possession of your first
Pokemon, everyone's happy, and you've unlocked the Pokemon sub-menu. Press
Start to look at it.

Now might be a good idea to save your game.

When you try to leave, Gary will challenge you to a fight.

=================
2b. Gary Battle 1

o---------------o---------------o---------------o
|Charmander....5|Squirtle......5|Bulbasaur.....5|
o---------------o---------------o---------------o

Money: 80

In battle, there are four options. They are:

FIGHT    BAG
POKEMON  RUN

Select 'FIGHT' to look at your current moves. The 'BAG' command allows you to
use an item. Note that you cannot use items in a Link Battle. 'POKEMON' allows
you to switch [one of] your current Active Pokemon with one in your reserves
(unless specific circumstances disallow switching). 'RUN' does just that. You
will attempt to flee from a battle. Note that you cannot flee from a Trainer
battle.

Select 'FIGHT' and choose either Scratch or Tackle, depending on who your
starter is, to beat on your foe. It shouldn't happen, but if your HP get too
low, don't hesitate to use that Potion you got from the PC at home. After all,
it's not like they're hard to come by.

Defeat your foe to earn enough experience to advance to Lv.6.

Gary will leave. Do the same.

================
2c. Leaving Home
================

You can now leave to Route 1. Don't forget that from this point, your mom will
serve as your own personal Pokemon Center.

o-------------------------o
| ROUTE 1 POKEMON LISTING |
o-------------------------o
| Rattata (Common)        |
| Pidgey  (Common)        |
o-------------------------o

There'll be a guy that you can't miss as you pass through Route 1. Talk to him,
and you'll be one Potion richer.

To the north lies Viridian City.

===============================================
2d. Viridian City - An Eternally Green Paradise
===============================================

Lots of different things here. Wander around. The building with a red roof is a
Pokemon Center. All major locations have one, so don't be shy about running to
the nearest town or city and healing up - it's totally free. Simply talk to the
lady behind the counter and choose Yes.

So, what now?

There's a Gym here, but the Leader appears to be out. Huh. Well, that's odd.

o--------------------------o If you want, you can battle the Pokemon that are
| ROUTE 22 POKEMON LISTING | found here for some experience. You can't catch
o--------------------------o anything yet, so just concentrate on getting used
| Rattata (Common)         | to battling and raising your Pokemon's level. Once
| Spearow (Rare)           | you get Poke Balls, lazy Charmander Trainers who
| Mankey  (Uncommon)       | don't want to raise her until she learns Metal
o--------------------------o Claw should capture a Mankey for assistance later.
Bulbasaur-havers may want to get a Spearow from here or a Pidgey from Routes 1
or 2 (although that would mean leveling up Pidgey until she learns Gust (Lv.9),
and Spearow already starts with a Flying-type attack) and use their Flying
attacks to obliterate the bugs that lace Viridian Forest.

After you've killed your share of Pokemon from Route 22, stay away from there.
The only thing there is the entrance to Victory Road, and since you don't have
all the Badges, you're not going to get very far; even if you did, you'd be
spanked thoroughly by the Trainers and wild Pokemon there.

If you try to head north out of the city, you'll be stopped by a cranky old man
who hasn't had his morning coffee and won't let you pass.

The only thing left to do is visit the building with a blue roof. This, as the
"MART" sign indicates, is a PokeMart. You can purchase various things here...
but not yet. Immediately upon entering, the clerk recognizes you and asks
(well, more like forces, actually) you to deliver a package to Professor Oak.

==================
2e. Back to Pallet
==================

If you leave south out of the city, you'll see the brown ledges that are in
your way. These ledges can be jumped from if you're coming from the north side,
so do this to avoid every patch of grass on Route 1. Of course, you'll still
have to suffer and walk through the last one. Upon arrival, heal if you need to
and enter Oak's lab.

The professor will take his package from you, and Gary will walk in. Oak will
give each of you...

================
2e1. The Pokedex
================

With each new game, we get a new Pokedex, and FireRed and LeafGreen follow the
same pattern. There are several ways to view your Pokemon using this, making it
very easy to find the Pokemon you're looking for. Let's go over how it works:

The main mode is Numerical. It will show every Pokemon you've ever seen before,
according to their assigned Pokedex number. To the right it will show that
Pokemon's type(s). If you've owned it before, a Poke Ball symbol will appear to
the left of the Pokemon's name.


There are several in-depth modes, and if you know what category the Pokemon you
want falls into, it can be much easier than going through Numerical.

More or less, this is what you can expect to find in them (not always true):

Grassland - These Pokemon like the open air and freedom of the grasses you can
            find all over.

Forest - These Pokemon are most at home in forests, where trees are abundant,
         but space is not.

Water's-edge - These Pokemon inhabit any water that isn't the ocean.

Sea - These Pokemon live in the open sea, free of restrictions.

Cave - These Pokemon avoid daylight and prefer the darkness of caves.

Mountain - These Pokemon like the high reaches of mountainous regions.

Rough-terrain - These Pokemon are like the Grassland Pokemon, but they prefer
                to live in an area less touched by humans.

Urban - These Pokemon can be found alongside humans.

Rare - These Pokemon are rare and hard to find. This doesn't necessarily mean
       they're one-of-a-kind.

(The last four are search modes, used to find a Pokemon quickly.)

A to Z - List owned Pokemon in alphabetical order.

Type - List owned Pokemon by type.

Lightest - List owned Pokemon, lightest first.

Smallest - List owned Pokemon, smallest first.

The last option is Exit.

Professor Oak will also bestow five Poke Balls upon you to be used to capture
Pokemon. Spiffy. Leave now.

If you want, you can head next door to Gary's house. His sister will give you
the Town Map, which displays all of Kanto. Use the D-pad to move around the map
and view the name of an area. If you press A on a landmark (not a city), it
will tell you a little bit of information about the place you just examined
(thanks to The Wierdo for pointing this out).

=================
2g. Past Viridian
=================

Head to Viridian City. We can enter the PokeMart and buy things now, so why
don't you do that? At least browse...

o---------------------------o
|  VIRIDIAN CITY SHOP LIST  |  If you want to actually catch things, you might
o---------------------------o  want to buy a few more Poke Balls. It would be
| Poke Ball............$200 |  wise to pick up one or two Antidotes, as well.
| Potion...............$300 |
| Antidote.............$100 |
| Parlyz Heal..........$200 |
o---------------------------o

Head left as if you're going to Route 22, but head north at the last second
through a gap between the rock and fence. Follow this path to the end to find a
Potion.

=================
2f. Gary Battle 2
=================

If you want, you can battle Gary the second time you come to Viridian City.
Leave west out of the city to Route 22 and cut through the patch of grass. Take
a few steps west and he'll challenge you.

My Pokemon:

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |     Breeding wins.
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|   Poliwag  |  5  |   Machop   |  7  |   Grimer   |  5  |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|   Pidgey   |  4  |   Flareon  |  6  |  Mr. Mime  |  7  |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Gary's Pokemon:

        Find your starter. Gary's team
          is in the column below it.

o---------------o---------------o---------------o
|   Bulbasaur   |   Charmander  |    Squirtle   | <- Which one's your starter?
o---------------o---------------o---------------o
|Pidgey........9|Pidgey........9|Pidgey........9|
|Charmander....9|Squirtle......9|Bulbasaur.....9|
o---------------o---------------o---------------o

Money: 144

If you only have one Pokemon, I suggest not doing this battle. I mean, you
don't have to raise a new Pokemon only for this fight. Just catch one so you
can switch out to it in case Pidgey abuses Sand-Attack. Otherwise, you
shouldn't have much trouble.

Past Viridian (continued)
-------------------------

Back in the main portion of the city, going north will reveal that the old man
is much more cheerful now that he's had his cup o' joe. To show his
cheerfulness, he'll show you how to capture a Pokemon. After he's finished,
he'll give you the Teachy TV. Watching this will give you various tutorials on
different aspects of playing the game, starring the Poke Dude. As you progress
through the game, a few more tutorials become available.

Poke Balls can be found in the pack. Use left and right to cycle through the
different pockets.

The basic technique for capturing Pokemon is to whittle away HP until they're
in the red, inflict a Special Condition, then throw. It doesn't always take
exactly those tactics (higher-level Balls can catch lower-level Pokemon without
them taking so much as 1 HP of damage), but it's the general gist of things.

Route 2 awaits you. It's worthless right now because you can literally only
explore half of it, so continue on to Viridian Forest.


===================
2g. Viridian Forest
===================

Upon entry, you'll get a neat FPV (First-Person View) of the forest entrance.
This'll happen every time you enter a major location, even after the first time
you've been there.

                                      CATCH A CATERPIE. It's awesome. You see,
o----------------------------------o  Caterpie evolves into Metapod at Lv.7,
| VIRIDIAN FOREST  POKEMON LISTING |  who in turn evolves into Butterfree at
o----------------------------------o  Lv.10. Butterfree's Compoundeyes Ability
| Caterpie (Common)                |  multiplies the accuracy of all its moves
| Metapod  (Uncommon, LG)          |  by 130%, making it lethal at this stage
| Metapod  (Rare, FR)              |  of the game because it can inflict
| Weedle   (Common)                |  Special Conditions without breaking a
| Kakuna   (Uncommon, FR)          |  sweat. Lucky for you, if you choose not
| Kakuna   (Rare, LG)              |  to catch a Caterpie, you won't even SEE
| Pikachu  (Rare)                  |  Butterfree until you've got at least two
o----------------------------------o  Badges, so no worries, but wouldn't you
                                      like to have some multi-eyed doom as a
                                      part of YOUR team?

Okay. Head up and to the left upon entry to find a Poke Ball. Backtrack to the
entrance, and head right to find a Potion.

Head north from there and you'll find your very first Trainer! What luck!

Bug Catcher Rick                         o----------------------------------o
Weedle, Lv.6; Caterpie, Lv.6            / Beware of Weedle's Poison Sting! /
Money: 72                              o----------------------------------o

Continue north for another Trainer.

Bug Catcher Doug
Weedle, Lv.7 (x2); Kakuna, Lv.7
Money: 84

More going north yields an Antidote. If you're Poisoned from Weedle's Poison
Sting attack, use this to rid yourself of it. You don't have a lot of HP, so
poison damage can really hurt.

If you head to the right, then up, you'll find another Trainer.

Bug Catcher Anthony
Caterpie, Lv.7; Caterpie, Lv.8
Money: 96

Continue west to find a Trainer, but he won't fight you unless you initiate
contact.

Bug Catcher Charlie
Metapod, Lv.7 (x2); Caterpie, Lv.7
Money: 84

Keep following the path until you come to a fork. Take the right path to find a
Potion.

Retrace your steps and continue on to find Viridian Forest's last Trainer.

Bug Catcher Sammy
Weedle, Lv.9
Money: 108

After defeating him, continue north to find the forest's exit. Head through the
gate and leave Route 2 to reach Pewter City.

===================================
2h. Pewter City - A Stone Gray City
===================================

There's nothing of importance here, save the Gym - at least, not right now,
anyway. You can check the Mart for some brand new items.

o-------------------------o Nothing as of yet can Burn you, so you won't need
|  PEWTER CITY SHOP LIST  | to buy the Burn Heals. You can be put to sleep for
o-------------------------o the first time in a while, so it wouldn't hurt to
| Poke Ball..........$200 | get one or two Awakenings, as well as a few Escape
| Potion.............$300 | Ropes for quick exits when you're hurting. If you
| Antidote...........$100 | lack the money (and I don't know how that can be,
| Parlyz Heal........$200 | unless you went psycho when buying Poke Balls and
| Burn Heal..........$250 | bought 15 more of them), you might choose to buy a
| Awakening..........$200 | Repel, which blocks all wild Pokemon whose level is
| Escape Rope........$550 | lower than your Active Pokemon for 100 steps.
| Repel..............$100 | They're way cheaper than Escape Ropes, and one or
o-------------------------o two can get you out of a fix if you need them.
Even if you don't need them, buy a few now; they get much more expensive later.

Speaking of the Mart, if you talk to the man standing next to it and answer
"No," he'll escort you to the Museum, which means nothing to you right now.

There's a hidden Poke Ball in the patch of light grass in the upper left corner
of the city. Stand next to the fence and take two steps up and one step left.
Face up and press A to claim your prize.

The only other exit out of the city is due east, and if you try that, a man
will tell you that Brock's looking for new challengers. Then he'll escort you
to Pewter City's Gym.

Put him out of a job and go there yourself.

===================
2i. Pewter City Gym
===================

Quite the tiny Gym, isn't it?

There's only one lowly for you to smash here, unfortunately:

Camper Liam
Geodude, Lv.10; Sandshrew, Lv.11
Money: 220

You might need to heal after defeating the aforementioned Camper. If you

don't, you won't need much help to waste the Leader.

==========================================
2j. Brock, the Rock-Solid Pokemon Trainer!
==========================================

The first of Kanto's eight Gym Leaders, Brock will provide a challenge for
those who have neglected to raise their Pokemon... or those without Bulbasaur
or Squirtle.

My Pokemon:

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Money: 1400

If you picked Bulbasaur or Squirtle, there is NO REASON AT ALL you should lose
this fight. None whatsoever. The only way you can not have shame befall you is
if you chose Charmander, and your only other offense is a Pidgey, and even
then, she (Charmander) should have at least known Metal Claw. Using Bulbasaur's
Vine Whip or Squirtle's Water Gun should faint each of Brock's Pokemon in one
blow. If you've got a Charmander, you might want to be careful if you decide to
pit your deadly minion known as Butterfree against either Onix or Geodude -
both of them know Rock Tomb, to which our favorite insect has a double weakness
to, guaranteeing its demise in one shot. In the event your Pokemon survives the
hit, Rock Tomb will lower your Speed by 1 level. Crush Brock and his Rock-types
to earn the Boulderbadge, the ability to use Flash out of battle, the TM Case
if you don't have it already (Equip a TM to a Pokemon, trade it to another
game, start a new game, get the Pokemon back, and remove the TM to have it
magically appear in your inventory), and TM39, Rock Tomb.

===============
2k. TM... what?
===============

The TM Case is an item that holds any TM (Technical Machine) or HM (Hidden
Machine) that you have in your possession (You'll notice later that they put
the HMs on top this time! It's about time!). They look like CDs, but hey, I'm
not arguing or anything... Find this item in your Key Items section - it sorta
resembles a yellow flashlight... kinda.

Just a little!

======================================================
3. Speed, Bad Guys, Greedy Nerds, and the Second Badge
======================================================

Major Objectives
----------------

* Meet Team Rocket.
* Teach someone the importance of sharing.
* Traverse Nugget Bridge.
* Meet Bill.
* Earn your second Badge.

All right! We're one Badge closer to being able to go to Victory Road. Since
you've defeated Brock, the man blocking the east exit will be gone, but
someone's in his place...

=================================
3a. Go Fast. Quick, Like a Bunny.
=================================

The man who wouldn't let you pass earlier has been replaced by one of Professor
Oak's Aides, who will bestow the Running Shoes upon you. Hold B to sprint.

Once you've been speedyfied, you can finally leave Pewter City. Head to Route 3
and find that it's infested with Trainers.

From this point, you've got the choice to either jump the ledge and fight the

o---------------------------o If your luck is as bad as mine is, you'll find
|  ROUTE 3 POKEMON LISTING  | that Jigglypuff successfully uses an inaccurate
o---------------------------o Sing attack almost every time. For that, you'll
| Rattata    (Common)       | need to either walk around with sleeping Pokemon
| Pidgey     (Common)       | until you find a Pokemon Center or make use of
| Spearow    (Common)       | the Awakenings I recommended to you earlier. As
| Jigglypuff (Uncommon)     | far as Pokemon go, you can also pick up both
| NidoranM   (Uncommon, FR) | Nidoran, but unless you're obsessed with filling
| NidoranM   (Rare, LG)     | your Pokedex as soon as possible, I suggest
| NidoranF   (Uncommon, LG) | waiting until later and just capturing whichever
| NidoranF   (Rare, FR)     | one is easier to catch in your version. Which one
| Mankey     (Rare)         | you get doesn't matter; both Nidoking and

                  o-------------------------------------------------------o

Robin's the last Trainer on Route 3. Head east and then north to reach the end
of the Route, as well as a Pokemon Center, but let's not go inside quite yet.
Do you see the three rocks to the left of the building? Stand next to above the
middle rock and press A facing left or right (depending on which side of the
rock you're on) to find a Persim Berry, which adds the Berry Pouch to your Key
Items pocket if you don't have it already (are there berries before this?).

Still can't find it? Look at this:        O = rock
                                          X = where you stand
      O    X@X  O                         @ = Persim Berry
            O

=========================
3b. Let's Buy a Magikarp!
=========================

If you talk to the man in the upper left corner of the first floor of the
Pokemon Center, he'll offer to sell you a Magikarp for 500 money. The Magikarp
is Lv.5, and won't learn anything until Lv.15; it evolves at Lv.20. All it
knows is Splash. If you feel like raising it, place it in the lead of your
party, switch it out so it gets experience and doesn't die, then switch it
back in with each new Pokemon. It's a slow, surefire method for leveling up.

To the right lies Mt. Moon. Let's not keep those new Pokemon waiting, shall we?

============
3c. Mt. Moon
============

o---------------------------o
| MT. MOON  POKEMON LISTING |
o---------------------------o       o --------------------------o
| Zubat    (Common)         |      / Paras will only appear on /

| Paras    (Common)         |    o---------------------------o
| Clefairy (Rare)           |
o---------------------------o

You'll get a FPV of the cave's entrance upon entering.

Once inside, you'll be able to see an item ball on the ground. No one's around
to claim ownership of it, so it's all yours. Inside is TM09, Bullet Seed.

There's a Parlyz Heal lying up and to the left of the Bug Catcher to the north
of the TM, but what say we dispose of him first? Not like he's a threat or
anything...

Bug Catcher Kent
Weedle, Lv.11; Kakuna, Lv.11
Money: 132

Head back towards the entrance and you'll see a girl standing next to a sign.
If you enter her line of sight, she'll challenge you to a battle.

Lass Iris                     o-------------------------------------------o
Clefairy, Lv.14              / Clefairy also has the Cute Charm Ability. /
Money: 224                  o-------------------------------------------o

Continue on the path and you'll find a ladder. Descend it and follow the path
(this small path is where you'll find Paras). Go down the second ladder and
take one step to the right to be ambushed by a Team Rocket Grunt.

Team Rocket Grunt
Sandshrew, Lv.11; Rattata, Lv.11; Zubat, Lv.11
Money: 352

On a platform to the right of this Grunt lies a Star Piece. This item (among
others) is specifically designed for increasing the amount of money you have;
it has no use in or out of battle. Go back to the main floor and head south
from here and you'll find that a wall blocks you. Take the left side to find a
Potion, and another Trainer.

Super Nerd Jovan
Magnemite, Lv.11; Voltorb, Lv.11
Money: 264

After defeating him, you can go up and fight the Trainer that's in between two
walls if you want.

Bug Catcher Robby
Caterpie, Lv.10 (x2); Metapod, Lv.10
Money: 120

Continue on the right side and pick up the Rare Candy and Escape Rope. Be sure
to go north a little more and talk to the man next to the rocks before heading
left to continue your onslaught of the cave.

Lass Miriam
Oddish, Lv.11; Bellsprout, Lv.11
Money: 176

Continue left and head down the stairs. You'll find a Team Rocket Grunt here.

Team Rocket Grunt
Zubat, Lv.11; Ekans, Lv.11
Money: 352

That wasn't so hard, was it? On the platform above him lies TM46, Thief. The
rock to his right contains a hidden Ether. Take both items and head back to the
main floor of Mt. Moon. The path now is quite straightforward, so just continue
on until you reach the end of the cave (which isn't far).

Youngster Josh
Rattata, Lv.10 (x2); Zubat, Lv.10

Money: 360                           o------------------------------------o

Go down the stairs and follow the underground paths. When you get to the main
rooms, head north to find a Revive. Then head right and battle the Grunt.

Team Rocket Grunt                   o-----------------------------------------o

   / as Quick Attack, it decimated entire teams without breaking a sweat. /
  o----------------------------------------------------------------------o

After that joyful battle, all you have to do is follow the straightforward path
all the way to the end, where one last Grunt awaits you.

Team Rocket Grunt
Rattata, Lv.13; Zubat, Lv.13
Money: 416


Head north a bit. Do you see the rock in between the two walls? Examine that
rock to find the second Moon Stone. The man standing near here is the last
fight of this cave. It seems that he's found two rare fossils of long-extinct
Pokemon, but he's not willing to share. Looks like we're going to have to rough
him up a little and see if he changes his tune.

Super Nerd Miguel
Grimer, Lv.12; Voltorb, Lv.12; Koffing, Lv.12
Money: 288
 If
Not wanting to get beaten any more badly than he already has, Miguel agrees to
share the fossils with you. You only get one, so choose wisely. The question
is, which one do you want?

==================
3d. Dome or Helix?
==================

The Dome Fossil contains the remains of Kabuto, while the Helix Fossil holds
the remains of Omanyte. Both Pokemon are Rock/Water in type, and both carry the
Swift Swim Ability. Omanyte has the Shell Armor Ability as well, but it does
the same thing as Kabuto's Battle Armor - prevents the foe's critical hits.
Overall, it's a matter of which one you like better. I picked Helix, because I
believe Omastar (Omanyte's evolution) is better battle-wise. Moving on!

===================================
3e. The Point of No Return... Sorta
===================================


We've almost reached this point, but we have just a few more things to do. Once
you make your selection of fossil, Miguel will take the other one. Pick up the
Antidote on your way out and enjoy your well-deserved dose of sunlight. If you
move to the right, you'll notice two men facing each other. These are Move
Tutors who will teach ONE of your Pokemon a move. These moves come from the
color TM list, and, like TMs, can only be used ONCE. The man on the left will
teach Mega Punch; the other, Mega Kick. I suggest not using them. At least, not
right now. A bit further and you'll find TM05, Roar.

Step on the square below the TM and go straight down. After you jump the second
ledge, you should be able to just press A for a Razz Berry. If not, get in the
upper right corner and take a step down and face left or step left and face
down. Either way, press A for the berry. Just a little bit more and you'll see
a patch of grass, followed by a path if you continue right.

This is the point of no return. If you jump either of these ledges, you will be
stuck in the northeast region of Kanto until you earn the right to use Fly out
of battle and have obtained it (Fly). When you're ready, go ahead and jump.

========================================================
3f. Cerulean City - A Mysterious, Blue Aura Surrounds It
========================================================

o---------------------------o As you can see, they have a new item, the Super
|  CERULEAN CITY SHOP LIST  | Potion. While it costs more than twice the money
o---------------------------o for a Potion, it heals 50 HP, which can prove
|  Poke Ball..........$200  | quite useful. Someone needs to inform the manager
|  Super Potion.......$700  | of this shop that Repels are in very high supply
|  Potion.............$300  | and are NOT worth 350 money. I hope you bought
|  Antidote...........$100  | some. Some of these items aren't even worth your
|  Parlyz Heal........$200  | time (namely, the Burn Heal and Escape Rope),
|  Burn Heal..........$250  | but enough about that. Welcome to Cerulean City!
|  Awakening..........$250  | First things first. Head right and then north to
|  Escape Rope........$550  | find two houses next to each other. Enter the one
|  Repel..............$350  | on the left. A man lives here who will explain
o---------------------------o the different benefits of each Badge. Leave
through the back door and find five flowers in a W shape on the far right.
Search the empty area in the middle on the bottom of this 'W' to find a Rare
Candy. Leave this man's house and enter the house next door. In this home is a
man who creates things from Berry Powder. Berry Powder is made upstairs in
Pokemon Centers, and makes use of the new wireless adapter feature of this
game. You'll need another person if you want to crush berries into Berry
Powder, but what to store them in? We certainly don't want our Berry Pouch
getting dirty. However, this guy's a real nice bloke, and he'll give you your
very own Powder Jar. Leaving here and going south a bit, we find a shop that
will make your life complete! This guy has one on sale for the low, low price
of 1,000,000 money!

What do you say? Interested?
   > I'll take one
     Don't need it

Well, nope. Not getting it. Your wallet only holds up to 999,999 money, one
less than they demand. Darn. -__- Even if you could afford the million money,
the amount of time you would spend earning that million would be, well,
phenomenal, to say the least. Don't worry, though - we'll find a way to get it.
We have the important stuff out of the way, so save your game if you haven't
already, head towards the bridge on the north side of the city, and get ready
for a familiar face.

One should note that you CAN go beat Misty first, but I'd wait until you've met
Bill before attempting that, as Misty is extremely hard if you're weak and will
annihilate you if your Pokemon's levels aren't close to or higher than hers
(~20). Her Pokemon are fast, so you can't hope to win on type matching alone.

If you fought Gary west of Viridian, you found that he had a Pidgey, which has
evolved. Of course, that doesn't really mean much, considering it IS, after
all, only Pidgeotto (who is pretty weak to say the least). Abra's only move is
Teleport, which, when used properly, can do up to a grand total of ZERO DAMAGE.
You'll have to hope he doesn't teleport from this battle, or else you won't get
any experience... oops. Silly me, I forgot. This isn't a wild battle, which
means Abra is free experience. Bring in that Magikarp if you bought it and
Splash it to death for some nice experience. Gary hasn't evolved his starter
yet, which could be a good thing if you're weak, but bad if you're strong and
need the higher exp. from a strong Pokemon. Oh well.

Don't worry. Gary will get much harder to beat in the future. After sending him
packing, he'll come back. Not to taunt you more, but to give you a new item,
the Fame Checker. This worthless item is why I told you to talk to EVERYTHING.
What this thing does is let you recall things that have been said about famous
people. Almost anything that talks about a certain person (all of this is
covered in the Fame Checker section) will add that thing to the Fame Checker,
whether it be a sign, a person, or a piece of paper on the wall. You'll find
people throughout the entire game who will talk about people you met ages ago,
so don't worry about having those blank spots.

Gary will leave again, allowing you access to Nugget Bridge and the rest of
Kanto's northeastern side.

=================
3h. Nugget Bridge
=================

"People call this the Nugget Bridge! Beat us five Trainers and win a fabulous
prize! Think you got what it takes?"

Cale will tell this to you before he challenges you, and that's the gist of it:
beat the five Trainers of increasing difficulty, starting with Cale himself.

Mankey, Lv.18
Money: 360

Hooray, you've done it! Before you go claiming your prize, take a look in your
wallet. Are you short on money? If you don't have as much money as you'd like,
then go to the Pokemon Center and deposit your entire team. Withdraw someone
weak (like that Lv.5 Magikarp you should have bought) and then come back here.

This is still a good tip for those who are financially secure, so read anyway.
Talk to the man after Ethan to receive a Nugget and an offer to join Team
Rocket. While I've shouted "YES! YES! I'M SAYING YES HERE!" on several
occasions at the screen, it doesn't help. Your character will refuse the offer,
and he'll fight you because you need convincing.

Team Rocket Grunt
Ekans, Lv.15; Zubat, Lv.15
Money: 480

If you like your money total, waste this guy and be on your way.

If not, you should now have that lone Magikarp facing off against Ekans, who
will waste no time in killing it. Your Pokemon has been fainted, and you lose
half your money... but you're one Nugget richer. If you go back to see the
Grunt again, he will give you ANOTHER Nugget and ANOTHER offer and ANOTHER
battle. Lose again, and you lose half your money again. Return to the Grunt to
receive a THIRD Nugget. See the pattern? Do this 10 times and you'll have an
easy 50,000 money in ITEMS. You can become rich quite easily this way.

Note: I accidentally erased the e-mail of the guy who submitted this tip to me.
E-mail me so I can give you credit!

After this, you're free to continue on your way.

============================
3i. The Road to Bill's House
============================

The road to Bill's house is laced with new Pokemon and Trainers, so it would be
wise to head back for a quick heal. When you're ready, go forth.

o---------------------------o Route 25's Pokemon listing is the same as this.
| ROUTE 24 POKEMON LISTING  | Wow, what's this? You can't catch tons of Rattata
o---------------------------o anymore! It's been replaced by Pidgey, and you'll
| Pidgey     (Common)       | be seeing a lot of them. Much like Gary's Abra,
| Abra       (Uncommon)     | the wild Abra know only Teleport, which makes
| Weedle     (Uncommon)     | capturing them very difficult. If you've got
| Kakuna     (Rare)         | Sleep Powder (Butterfree or [Bulba/Ivy]saur),
| Caterpie   (Uncommon)     | utilize that or try confusing it to save a few
| Metapod    (Rare)         | turns. If you don't, this also serves as the
| Oddish     (Rare, FR)     | perfect opportunity to get yourself a Grass-type
| Bellsprout (Rare, LG)     | for your team. You don't have a choice, but it's
o---------------------------o still a Grass-type.

While we're in the grass, let's beat up the scared Trainer hiding in the grass.

Rattata, Lv.14; Ekans, Lv.14
Money: 280


Before you leave this area, be sure you pick up an extra Abra! Keep it with
you, store it in the PC, just catch one you don't need.

Just north of Nugget Bridge is TM45, Attract. Get it.

Heading east, tackle each Trainer one at a time, healing when necessary. These
guys are pushovers, though. You probably shouldn't need to heal.

Do you see the item ball? After you defeat Nob, be sure to let the Trainer to
the north of him walk to YOU so you can pick it up, which contains TM43, Secret
Power. If you don't, you'll have to come back once you get Cut.

Stand to the left of Haley and take two steps up. Face left and press a for a
Bluk Berry.

Talk to the girl by the cape to add her to Misty's section of the Fame Checker.

Enter the house and talk to the thing that resembles a Pokemon and it will
reveal that it is Bill, the biggest Pokemaniac ever and inventor of the Pokemon
Storage System on PC. The thing is, he's been mixed with a Pokemon, and he
needs you to help him out. Even if you don't agree to help him, you'll be
forced to. When Bill enters the capsule, go to his computer and press A on the
screen, which will run the Cell Separation System. You'll see a small
animation, and Bill in human form will emerge from the other capsule. He'll
give you the S.S. Ticket as thanks, and that's the end of that. From now on,
"Someone's PC" is changed to "Bill's PC," and, if you want, you can exit and
then re-enter Bill's house and look at his computer to add Eevee, Flareon,
Jolteon, and Vaporeon to your Pokedex. When you're finished there, go to the
bottom and take the path under all the Trainers back to Cerulean City. There's
only one thing left to do before leaving this town, so let's get right to it.

=====================
3j. Cerulean City Gym
=====================

This Gym is just screaming simplicity. The first Trainer is totally optional,
but he's super weak, so let's just beat him down.

Money: 64

Picnicker Diana        o-----------------------------------------------------o
Goldeen, Lv.19        / Don't be scared by the high level. It's still weak. /
Money: 380           o-----------------------------------------------------o


Well, that wasn't so difficult. Go back and heal, then come back and save.

=================================
3k. Misty, the Tomboyish Mermaid!
=================================

My Pokemon:

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|   Poliwag  |  15 |   Machop   |  17 |   Grimer   |  16 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|   Pidgey   |  16 |   Flareon  |  15 |  Mr. Mime  |  17 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Misty's Pokemon:

o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|   Staryu   |  18 |  Starmie   |  21 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Money: 2100

Staryu shouldn't be very hard to kill, but don't play around, lest you want to
get confused by Water Pulse, which both her Pokemon know. Once you kill Staryu,
get to hoping and praying, because Starmie's likely faster than your Pokemon.
It knows Swift, which will never miss as long as you're on screen, and has
better Defense than Staryu. She's got a Super Potion that she'll use when
Starmie's HP get low, so use a few weak attacks to knock Starmie's HP into the
yellow, then use a powerful attack to get the kill, rendering the item useless.
Either that, or try to knock Staryu into the red so she'll waste the Super
Potion on it. That way, you won't have to worry about healing the powerhouse.
Upon defeat, you will earn the Cascadebadge, the ability to use Cut out of
battle, and TM03, Water Pulse.

====================================================
4. Boat Rides, HM Monstrosities, and the Third Badge
====================================================

Major Objectives
----------------

* Backtrack to Cerulean and pick up a Bike.
* Board the S.S. Anne and defeat the Trainers there.
* Get your first HM.
* Earn your third Badge.

Before we can accomplish the first objective, we need to actually make it to
Vermilion City, so let's go. Leave the Gym and circle left around the Mart
and Gym to a building with the police officer standing next to the entrance.
Enter here. Turns out that this couple was robbed of a TM that lets a Pokemon
dig holes. You're a good person, so you're going to get it back from the guy
who stole it (but you never agreed to return it... gotta love those loopholes).
Leave through the hole in the wall to find an "innocent bystander" standing
there. Of course, we're not going to buy that, so let's teach him a lesson.

Team Rocket Grunt
Drowzee, Lv.17
Money: 544

After putting him in his place, he'll run away after returning TM28, Dig.

o---------------------------o Route 6's Pokemon listing is the same as this.
| ROUTE 5  POKEMON LISTING  | The only new face is Meowth, a mediocre Pokemon
o---------------------------o with an awesome Ability - Pickup. This particular
| Pidgey     (Common)       | Ability lets Meowth (and anyone else with Pickup)
| Meowth     (Common)       | pick up a berry or item after a battle. Get one
| Oddish     (Common, FR)   | if you want. Moving on, we find that we can't go
| Bellsprout (Common, LG)   | east because a small tree blocks the way. Let's
o---------------------------o go south instead. If you jump the ledges in
between the walls, we'll come across the Pokemon Day-Care. Here, you can leave
one of your Pokemon for this man to raise. For every step you take, that
Pokemon earns 1 exp. point. To get a Pokemon back, it's 100 money plus 100
more money for every level said Pokemon gained while in the care of the man.
It's a good place to dump the Magikarp you may have purchased back at Mt. Moon.

We can't pass south into Saffron City because the guard's thirsty. That only
leaves one other option: the underground path connecting Routes 5 and 6. Enter
to find a girl who wants to trade her female Nidoran for your male one (in
FireRed, she wants the girl and offers the guy). Those with LeafGreen who were
too lazy to look for a male Nidoran are in luck. Go down the stairs, follow the
path, and get back out. When you exit the building, go all the way to the left
side. Stand in between the ledges by the grass, face north, and press A to find
a hidden Sitrus Berry. Do the same on the right for your third Rare Candy. Are
you saving them?

Now go back to the left so we can tackle the Trainers that inhabit this area.

If you can manage to beat Elijah without much trouble, you shouldn't need any
additional help to make it to your destination.

==================================================
4a. Vermilion City - The Port of Exquisite Sunsets
==================================================

Head into the Pokemon Center. Talk to the woman next to the counter to receive
the VS Seeker. This item, when used, will notify you of Trainers who would like
to rematch you if they are in the surrounding area. Those who want another
fight will have "!!" above their heads and begin jumping; otherwise, it's "X".
If you still haven't fought them for the first time, it will just be a "!" Once
used, it takes 100 steps to recharge the battery (talk about a short life
span). Leave here and enter the house to the left. Talk to the Fishing Guru and
tell him 'yes' to receive the Old Rod. Leave, head east a bit, then go south
and then all the way west to reach
the Pokemon Fan Club. It's funny,       o----------------------------------o
because there's a guy inside who       / "Great. A Magikarp stick."       /
says that his Pikachu's cuter than    /    -- AstralFire on the Old Rod  /
"that one," but just whose Pikachu   o----------------------------------o
is he talking about? Just one of
those things to make you go "Hmm." Talk to the old coot on the upper left and
answer 'yes' to hear him ramble about his Rapidash. After he's finished, he'll
give you a Bike Voucher for your trouble. This is the item that you will need
to get a million-money discount on a Bike in Cerulean City, so get yourself
back there and get one.

And as long as you're in the Cerulean area, why not stop by Route 4 for an
extra Spearow? No, seriously. Get one.

On your way back, you should be very relieved to find that you can indeed ride
the Bicycle in all underground paths.

Back in Vermilion, take that Spearow you caught to the house next to the
Pokemon Fan Club. Inside is a girl who will gladly give you a Farfetch'd (that
isn't found anywhere in Kanto, which makes you wonder where she got hers) for
that Spearow (which is found almost everywhere). About the only thing more
awkward than that is the name of her Farfetch'd, Ch'ding. What happened to Dux?

There's a Max Ether hidden in the corner lower left corner of the sand. Walk
directly south from the Pokemon Center's entrance until you hit water. Face
left and press A.

o---------------------------o
| VERMILION CITY SHOP LIST  | The only thing left to do in Vermilion City prior
o---------------------------o to boarding the S.S. Anne is to look at the shop
|  Poke Ball..........$200  | and see what's new, so let's take a look, eh?
|  Super Potion.......$700  | Potions have been removed, which means that we're
|  Antidote...........$100  | getting stronger. Still using the same old Poke

o---------------------------o

=================
4b. The S.S. Anne
=================

Welcome to the S.S. Anne, a cruise liner that just so happens to be in
Vermilion on its annual visit. Bill said there was supposed to be a party going
on, but it seems that the party's been finished for quite some time. Why hasn't
the boat left yet? Hmm... Upon entering, one of the sailors will warn you that
some of the more restless Trainers will challenge you, but that's not much of a
problem. After all, that's what we're here for!

Go all the way to the right, south, and downstairs. Inspect the trash can for a
free Hyper Potion you don't even need yet, and go into the nearest door. A guy
inside will brag about how strong his Machoke is, but we don't care. Steal the
Super Potion he must have left lying around (it's on the table) and leave. Next
door, we have two Sailors who will fight you.

Sailor Leonard                 Sailor Duncan
Shellder, Lv.21                Horsea, Lv.17; Shellder, Lv.17; Tentacool, Lv.17
Money: 672                     Money: 544

If you enter the cabin to the left of these guys, you are immediately jumped.

Sailor Dylan
Horsea, Lv.17 (x3)
Money: 544

Grab the Ether next to the chair and get out. Another Sailor awaits next door.

Sailor Huey
Tentacool, Lv.18; Staryu, Lv.18
Money: 576

By the bed is TM44, Rest. There's only one more cabin on this floor, and it
contains two dudes who want a fight.

Sailor Phillip                 Fisherman Barny
Machop, Lv.20                  Tentacool, Lv.17; Shellder, Lv.17; Staryu, Lv.17
Money: 640                     Money: 612

After that, leave, go back upstairs, north, and head into the far right cabin.

Gentleman Thomas         o--------------------------------------------------o
Growlithe, Lv.18 (x2)   / Both Growlithe have Intimidate, just like Ekans. /
Money: 1296            o--------------------------------------------------o

Moving cabin by cabin, the next one contains a woman who offers to let you rest
(a pseudo-Pokemon Center). Nothing else here.

If you enter the third from the far right cabin, you get jumped again.

Gentleman Arthur
NidoranM, Lv.19; NidoranF, Lv.19
Money: 1368

The next cabin has a woman who somehow, despite your complete and total lack of
any type of clothing that even remotely resembles a uniform of any kind,
mistakes you for one of the ship's staff and asks you for cherry pie.

A bit loony, but she's got good taste. <3

So yeah, moving on, we find a room with a man, a young boy, and his Wigglytuff.
That's no fun, so let's keep going. We find three people standing around, and
the two closest to the door want a piece of you.

Far be it from us to withhold it from them. Let's start with the girl.

Lass Ann                                Youngster Tyler
Pidgey, Lv.18; NidoranF, Lv.18          NidoranM, Lv.21
Money: 288                              Money: 336

Take the item ball in the bottom corner of the room for TM31, Brick Break.

The last cabin (the one on the far left) contains an undercover agent on the
trail of Team Rocket. While you may want to bust out the chloroform rag on him,
it isn't an option, so let's just go south and through the door at the end to
end up in the kitchen. No one in here will fight you, but if you inspect the
trash cans on the right side, you'll find a Pecha Berry in the top one, a Cheri
Berry in the middle one, and a Chesto Berry in the bottom one. These three
Berries heal PSN, PAR, and SLP, respectively. Check the garbage can in the
lower left corner to find a Great Ball.

Leave and go back north. Go up the stairs, go south, and then up the stairs.
Follow the path to the ship's deck to find two more Trainers.

Sailor Trevor                           Sailor Edmond
Machop, Lv.17; Tentacool, Lv.17         Machop, Lv.18; Shellder, Lv.18
Money: 544                              Money: 576

We're at the final stretch of the S.S. Anne, so heal if you need to. Enter the
first cabin on the far left and talk to the man there. He'll show you a picture
of Snorlax, which will add it to your Pokedex. If you enter the second cabin,
you'll see an item ball, but two Trainers will see to it that you don't get it.

Fisherman Dale                          Gentleman Brooks
Goldeen, Lv.17 (x2); Tentacool, Lv.17   Pikachu, Lv.23
Money: 612                              Money: 1656

Claim your prize (some Stardust, which, like the Star Piece, is shop food). You
can skip the next cabin if you want; nothing of note is there. As we head into
the third-to-last cabin on this ship, we find another item ball that we want to
get our hands on, but we won't have it without a fight. Well... two fights, if
you fight the Gentleman first. It's an X Attack.

Gentleman Lamar                         Lass Dawn
Growlithe, Lv.17; Ponyta, Lv.17         Rattata, Lv.18; Pikachu, Lv.18
Money: 1224                             Money: 288

The last two cabins have nothing of worth in them. Go back and heal, then come
back and save your game. Head forward, and Gary descends the stairs. He brags a
bit about his Pokedex (at this stage of the game, 40 Pokemon means he caught
and evolved just about everyone you can find thus far), then challenges you.

Oh my, what's this? Gary's gotten smarter! He knows how to switch out now, so
he'll occasionally do that and throw you for a loop. Don't worry, though. He's
still hardcore weak-style, so beat him around like a redheaded stepchild. Wait
a second... a Lv.16 Raticate? My illegality-detecting radar is going off...

I guess his Rattata must have been eating his Poke-Wheaties.

After shaming him, he will take off.

==============
4d. Cut Sucks.
==============

If you need to do anything that involves leaving the S.S. Anne, do it now.

When you're ready, talk to the man standing next to the garbage can. You will
then proceed to give a strange old man a sensual back massage. He, of course,
feels much better because of it, and gives you HM01, Cut, as thanks.

This particular HM is less than useful in battle. We don't want to waste one of
our precious move slots for such a horrible move, so what to do? Hm... I know!

=======================
4e. We Need Farfetch'd!
=======================

Ah, Farfetch'd! How could I almost forget our lovable little leek slapper? Drag
Ch'ding out of whatever Box you've got him in and slap that CD on his head.
Keep him on your party until further notice. Oh, and while you're in the
Pokemon Center, why not bring that extra Abra I told you to get into the light?

==================
4f. Diglett's Cave
==================

We're almost ready to storm Vermilion's Gym (hehe), but we've got a couple
things to do first. Diglett's Cave is one of them. Before we enter, make sure
you're carrying an Abra. You are? Great. How about a Cutter? Yes? Ok. Let's go!

Diglett's Cave can be found on Route 11, east of Vermilion City.

The path is straightforward, and you can ride the Bike in here, but you've got
to be careful about putting weak Pokemon in the lead. The only two Pokemon that
inhabit Diglett's cave are naturally Diglett and its evolution, Dugtrio. To
find a wild Dugtrio is very rare, and they're at levels that are probably
higher than your team, so you may want to go fast through this cave. Dugtrio
isn't the problem, though. The problem is the Ability they share, Arena Trap.
Since it prevents fleeing or switching if you're not part Flying or have

Levitate, make sure a Pokemon who meets any of this criteria leads your party
while you're in Diglett's Cave. And speaking of Arena Trap, if you'd like a
Diglett for yourself, make sure you try to flee before catching it, to make
sure that your new Diglett will come with Arena Trap instead of the inferior
Ability, Sand Veil (ups evasion in a sandstorm). With that said:

Follow the straightforward, Diglett-laced path to the end.

==========================
4g. Mr. Mime Is Mandatory!
==========================

Well, not really, but he is if you want to complete the Pokedex!

When you exit Diglett's Cave, go into the south house and confront your
destiny. The boy in the back will trade you the grandmaster Pokemon known as
Mr. Mime for the pathetic beast called Abra.

In reality, there's nothing 'grandmaster' about Mr. Mime. Sure, he's got access
to Calm Mind (SP.ATK +1, SP.DEF +1), but that's about it. I just love him.

You should, too. <3

Cut the tree to the south and enter the building there. Inside is another of
Professor Oak's Aides. If you have caught or owned at least 10 species of
Pokemon, he will give you HM05, Flash...

==========================================
4h. The Worst HM in the History of Pokemon
==========================================

Yes, indeed. Flash is nothing more than a glorified Sand-Attack, and we all
know how useful Sand-Attack is in the game (and especially linkplay, look out).
Flash has been with us for almost ten years, being in all three series as the
same HM, and not a day went by without someone asking a random PokeGod why The
Pokemon Company plagued the Pokemon world with a horrible HM such as this. And
with no way to rid yourself of it in the color games, it was worse. This
is why Pokemon slavery was invented, and God bless the guy who thought of it.
For those new to the series, this is why you'll never see Flash (or Sand-
Attack, for that matter) in a real battle that means anything:

Type: Normal      A blast of light
Power: ---        that cuts the foe's
Accuracy: 70      accuracy. It also
PP: 20            illuminates caves.

What was The Pokemon Company thinking?

I mean, come on. For something as mediocre as lowering accuracy (by the time
it's done any good, you're already dead), you'd think that they'd raise the
accuracy by oh, say, 30. Alas, it isn't the case. Flash is now, has always
been, and will always be the worst HM in the history of Pokemon.

====================
4i. Pewter Revisited
====================

Leave the house from the south side, and pick up the Ether. If you want a free
Parlyz Heal, keep going. When you're finished, head back to Diglett's Cave and
cut the sapling tree to the left of it. A bit north and you're back in Pewter.

Now that you have Cut, you can get to the back of the Museum. To get there, go
to the northeast corner of the city. You can't miss the tree to Cut. Go inside.

At the lower computer is a Move Tutor who will teach someone Seismic Toss.

The bookshelf in the upper right corner contains Brock's last entry for the
Fame Checker, but it'll only be there if you have the other five entries.

The man in the upper center has what we're looking for. This guy wants you to
take the piece of amber that's sitting next to him to a Pokemon Lab, wherever
you can find one, to see if you can revive a Pokemon from it. You don't have a
choice, so you get the Old Amber.

Before you head back to Vermilion, it should be noted that you can go back to
Viridian City, cut the sap by the water, and talk to a Move Tutor who will
teach someone Dream Eater.

Whenever you're ready, go back to Diglett's Cave and get to the Vermilion side.

A rock in the middle of nowhere. Hm, I wonder if there's a hidden item.

Get the Escape Rope and go inside the house. If you go upstairs, you'll find
someone who wants to trade his Nidorino for your Nidorina (those playing
FireRed will find he wants your Nidorina in exchange for his Nidorino). Those
who didn't partake of the Nidoran swap a while ago can do so with their
evolutions here. This is also helpful for those with LeafGreen who _did_ do the
trade, but don't feel like raising that NidoranM. You'll also find yet another
of Professor Oak's Aides, and he wants to give you the Itemfinder. Only problem
is that you have to have 30 Pokemon owned. The Itemfinder isn't mandatory; it's
not even very useful. It detects invisible items on the ground and points you
in their general direction. I should like to think that I've found most, if not
all, of the invisible items so far, and if I haven't, all the ones that matter.

Anyway, if you leave through the eastern exit, you'll find a big... thing
blocking the road. This "thing" is Snorlax, a colossus of a Pokemon, weighing
in at more than half a ton (only 1,014 pounds in reality, but "more than half a
ton" sounds like much more, doesn't it?) It's snoozing soundly, and there are
no forklifts nearby to eject that fat mass into the nearby sea, so you have to
turn back. Defeat the south trainers on Route 11 if you haven't already.

4k. Vermilion City Gym
======================

Talk to the sign outside to add Lt. Surge to the Fame Checker.

You know... while I was training, I found myself subconsciously making my way
towards Rock Tunnel (because at the time of writing this sentence, I've been
awake all night since 4 P.M. the previous day), and I realized that I hadn't
beaten Vermilion's Gym yet. I blazed through the game in my mind, and I figure
out that I don't _really_ need to beat Lt. Surge until the very end of the game
when they do the Badge check on the way to Victory Road. I may be wrong, but
you don't have to beat him any time soon. Of course, there's no real reason to
wait; the experience is much more valuable now.

And if his Badge wasn't the key to using one of the most helpful moves in the
entire game, I'd tell you to skip him completely and come back later.

The good lieutenant only has three cronies for you to test your skills against.
Dispose of them quickly; they aren't the real trouble.

Talk to Tucker after defeating him to add him again to the Fame Checker.

Go back and heal. If you solve the puzzle, leave, and come back, it resets.

You'll find that two huge bolts of energy block your way to Lt. Surge. Your job
is to make those energy bolts disappear by use of finding the two switches that
will do that. These switches will be in the garbage cans that surround the
three Gym Trainers. When you find a switch, the second one will always be
directly to the left, right, north, or south. So:

F - first switch                  T S F     Good job if this is your
S - possible second switch        T T S     scenario. Only 2 options.
T - trash                         T T T

S F S T   With three choices, you've got  T S T T   If this is the case,
T S T T   slightly worse chances, but     S F S T   you probably won't
T T T T   not the worst you can do.       T S T T   get it right.

If you guess the second switch wrong, the first lock will reset and will
teleport to a random trash can, making you start over.

Really, it's a lot simpler than I'm making it sound. You'll see.

After you get them both, the energy bolts disappear, leaving Lt. Surge
vulnerable to your onslaught.

======================================
4l. Lt. Surge, the Lightning American!
======================================

My Pokemon:

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|   Poliwag  |  20 |   Machop   |  22 |   Grimer   |  21 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|   Pidgey   |  20 |   Flareon  |  20 |  Mr. Mime  |  22 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Lt. Surge's Pokemon:

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|  Voltorb   |  21 |  Pikachu   |  18 |   Raichu   |  24 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Lieutenant Surge isn't very difficult, and I'm not saying that because my
levels tower over his. I mean, he's really not that hard. Look at his team. Two
words: Go! Diglett!

There you go. Send out a Diglett and you win. Dig him to death.

If that's not your cup of tea, just know that Shock Wave won't miss. Getting
through this yawner of a Gym nets you the Thunderbadge (great name, Lt.), the
ability to use Fly out of battle, and TM34, Shock Wave.

=====================================
5. More Bad Guys and the Fourth Badge
=====================================

Major Objectives
----------------

* Enjoy the beauty of Pokemon slavery.
* Head through Rock Tunnel.
* Meet and beat the leader of Team Rocket.
* Earn your fourth Badge.

Once you have five of Lt. Surge's entries in the Fame Checker (and you should
if you fought everyone and talked to Tucker again), the final entry is on the
bookshelf in the Pokemon Center. Get it to complete Lt. Surge's section.

Get a Psychic-type Pokemon that you don't care about and put it on your team.
Teach that unlucky Pokemon how to use Flash, and keep whatever you've been
using to Cut. Meowth and Oddish can learn both.

You may want to purchase a couple Escape Ropes if you've been using the ones
you found on the ground during your adventure. Rock Tunnel is a large dungeon,
and there are many Trainers there. Don't forget to stock up on Super Potions if
you need to.

Get to Cerulean City, but instead of jumping the ledge and entering the city,
go right and cut the small tree and gain access to the bulk of Route 9.

========================
5a. The Path to Darkness
========================

o---------------------------o Nothing new yet. This Route, like a few others,
| ROUTE 9  POKEMON LISTING  | is infested with Trainers who are ready and more
o---------------------------o than willing to give their money to you. There
| Spearow    (Common)       | are a total of ten Trainers until you get to
| Rattata    (Uncommon)     | Rock Tunnel, and none of them require any real
| Ekans      (Common, FR)   | outside preparation. They look like they'd have
| Sandshrew  (Common, LG)   | a hard time against Misty, for crying out loud.
o---------------------------o So anyway, let's get started, shall we?

Picnicker Alicia
Bellsprout, Lv.18 (x2); Oddish, Lv.18 (x2)
Money: 360

Below her is TM40, Aerial Ace. This is a very good attack, so save it.

Hiker Jeremy
Machop, Lv.20; Onix, Lv.20
Money: 720

When you come to the split in the path, take the top route first and battle the
Trainers there.

Camper Chris                           Bug Catcher Brent
Growlithe, Lv.21; Charmander, Lv.21    Beedrill, Lv.19 (x2)
Money: 420                             Money: 228

Then, go back to the fork, all the way down, then all the way to the right.

Hiker Alan
Geodude, Lv.21; Onix, Lv.21
Money: 756

Pick up the Burn Heal and make your way back to the fork. Take the middle path
and go all the way right, then up a bit.

Bug Catcher Conner
Caterpie, Lv.20; Venonat, Lv.20; Weedle, Lv.20
Money: 240

And to the left of him...

Camper Drew
Rattata, Lv.19; Sandshrew, Lv.19 (x2); Ekans, Lv.19
Money: 380

Go back right and north to continue.

Hiker Brice
Geodude, Lv.20 (x2); Machop, Lv.20
Money: 720

Directly west of him is a dark patch containing a Chesto Berry.

Head to the right and jump the ledge. You don't have to fight her.

Picnicker Caitlin
Meowth, Lv.21
Money: 460

o---------------------------o We have a new Pokemon on this Route; Voltorb.
| ROUTE 10 POKEMON LISTING  | Its evolution is the fastest Pokemon in Kanto.
o---------------------------o I wouldn't waste too much time training in this
| Voltorb    (Common)       | area. The Power Plant (inaccessible for now) and
| Spearow    (Common)       | the upcoming Rock Tunnel will provide more than
| Rattata    (Uncommon)     | adequate training for the fat lot of nothing
| Ekans      (Uncommon, FR) | that's ahead. You won't be challenging a new Gym
| Sandshrew  (Uncommon, LG) | for a long time, so don't feel hard-pressed to
| Mankey     (Rare)         | make your Pokemon strong. There will be plenty of
o---------------------------o time for that later on.

Head south to find many small trees you can Cut, the last Trainer, and a much-
needed Pokemon Center.

Picnicker Heidi
Pikachu, Lv.20; Clefairy, Lv.20
Money: 400

Go back, heal, and get ready. Enter the cave when you're ready.

===============
5b. Rock Tunnel
===============

o------------------------------o Just for clarification, "(later)" means later
| ROCK TUNNEL  POKEMON LISTING | on in the dungeon, towards the Lavender side.
o------------------------------o Upon entering, you get a nice FPV of the cave
| Zubat    (Common)            | entrance, and you find it's totally dark. Use
| Machop   (Uncommon)          | Flash and the entire area will light up (thank
| Mankey   (Uncommon)          | God it's more than just a tiny circle). The
| Geodude  (Common) (later)    | encounters here are very high (at least they
| Onix     (Uncommon (later)   | were for me), so Repel will be very useful
o------------------------------o throughout this cave.

The path is long, but straightforward. Head east for a Repel, then go back and
stomp the new brand of Trainer, the Pokemaniac.

Pokemaniac Ashton
Cubone, Lv.23; Slowpoke, Lv.23
Money: 1104

Follow the path downstairs and you'll find small rocks that you can't do
anything with at this time because you don't have the move HM to teach Rock
Smash, and even if you did, you can't use it out of battle yet. Ignore them for
now and continue following the straightforward path.

Pokemaniac Winston             o--------------------------------------o
Slowpoke, Lv.25               / All the way west of him is a Revive. /
Money: 1200                  o--------------------------------------o

Picnicker Martha                       Pokemaniac Steve
Oddish, Lv.22; Bulbasaur, Lv.22        Charmander, Lv.22; Cubone, Lv.22
Money: 440                             Money: 1056

If you keep going north, you'll see a Hiker. Don't forget to get his friend on
the other side of the wall/rock/whatever.

Hiker Allen                            Hiker Eric
Geodude, Lv.25                         Machop, Lv.20; Onix, Lv.20
Money: 900                             Money: 720

Go down the stairs in the northwest corner.

Hiker Lenny
Geodude, Lv.19 (x3); Machop, Lv.19
Money: 684

Straight south of him is a hidden Hiker of sorts.

Hiker Oliver                           Hiker Lucas
Onix, Lv.20 (x2); Geodude, Lv.20       Geodude, Lv.21; Graveler, Lv.21
Money: 720                             Money: 756

Grab the Escape Rope and utilize the stairs. If you go north, you'll find more
Rock Smash-able rocks you can do nothing with, so continue west a bit.

Picnicker Sofia
Jigglypuff, Lv.21; Pidgey, Lv.21; Meowth, Lv.21
Money: 420

North of her is a valuable Max Ether you'll want to pick up.

South of her is a Move Tutor who will teach the move Rock Slide.

Hiker Dudley                           Pokemaniac Cooper
Geodude, Lv.21 (x2); Graveler, Lv.21   Slowpoke, Lv.20 (x3)
Money: 756                             Money: 960

The last set of stairs is past Cooper.

Picnicker Leah
Bellsprout, Lv.22; Clefairy, Lv.22
Money: 440

Picnicker Ariana
Bellsprout, Lv.19; Pidgey, Lv.19; Rattata, Lv.19 (x2)
Money: 380

Pick up the Pearl (free money!) and fight the last Trainer in Rock Tunnel.

Picnicker Dana
Meowth, Lv.20; Pidgey, Lv.20; Oddish, Lv.20
Money: 400

Congratulations, you've done it. Leave the cave and you'll find a few more
Trainers that are on the short path to Lavender, but none of them are
mandatory. If your Pokemon are strong enough, feel free to take them on now...
or just go to Lavender, heal, and beat the crap out of them later on.

Stand to the right of the "Rock Tunnel" sign. Take four steps right and one up.
Press A for a Nanab Berry.

=========================================
5c. Lavender Town - The Noble Purple Town
=========================================

Just listen to the sad music...

o---------------------------o
|  LAVENDER TOWN SHOP LIST  |
o---------------------------o It's about time we got a chance to sell the junk
|  Great Ball.........$600  | we've been accumulating and purchase some more
|  Super Potion.......$700  | items. Great Balls, the next step up from a Poke
|  Revive............$1500  | Ball, are available for the first time; Super
|  Antidote...........$100  | Repel and Revive make their debuts here as well.
|  Parlyz Heal........$200  | I suggest buying a few of all of them. As you can
|  Awakening..........$250  | see, Ice Heal has been removed from the list. You
|  Burn Heal..........$250  | still aren't going to see any Ice-types for a
|  Escape Rope        $500  | good long time.
|  Super Repel........$500  |
o---------------------------o

When you enter the city, you'll see a huge structure visible from Lavender's
side of Route 10. This is Pokemon Tower, a building constructed to honor the
life of Pokemon that have died.

Southwest of the tower is the Lavender Volunteer Pokemon House, where Mr. Fuji
resides. Mr. Fuji takes care of lonely and abandoned Pokemon, but he's not in
right now. Talk to the little girl at the north end of the house to add Mr.
Fuji to the Fame Checker. Check the book on the table for another Fuji entry.

South of the LVPH is the Name Rater's house, where you can change the nickname
of any Pokemon that _you_ own (their OT is your Trainer ID).

Before we leave Lavender Town, there's one last thing we have to do. Go heal
and enter Pokemon Tower. Go up the first set of stairs and save. Head north...

Gary's Pokemon:

        Find your starter. Gary's team
          is in the column below it.

o---------------o---------------o---------------o
|   Bulbasaur   |   Charmander  |    Squirtle   | <- Which one's your starter?
o---------------o---------------o---------------o
|Pidgeotto....25|Pidgeotto....25|Pidgeotto....25|

|Exeggcute....23|Growlithe....23|Gyarados.....23|
|Charmeleon...25|Wartortle....25|Ivysaur......25|
o---------------o---------------o---------------o

Money: 900

I guess the Poke-Wheaties didn't do as much as Gary had hoped, because Raticate
has been permanently removed from his team. Also, check out the starter-
dependent teams!

Exeggcute knows Leech Seed and Reflect. Kill it quick to avoid these problems.

Gyarados has monster Attack power and a powerful Normal attack called Thrash
that can make short work of your Pokemon if you're weak or have low Defense. It
causes self-confusion in 2 or 3 turns, but you still need to be fast. Pick on
its double weakness to Electric if you can.

Growlithe isn't anything special... yet. Standard type matching will do.

After you beat the bejesus out of his team for the fourth or fifth time, he
makes a note about how he caught a Cubone but can't find any Marowak (little
does he know that's because there _are_ no Marowak in Pokemon Tower). Then he
leaves, leaving you free to do whatever. I'd leave the tower, because you can't
get to the top anyway. In addition to that, anything you run into will be
called "Ghost." If you try to attack them, your Pokemon will be to afraid to do
anything to it. It will then tell you to "Get out..." (the reverse of this if
the Ghost is faster than your Active Pokemon). You can't catch them either,
which means fleeing is your only option.

So we're back in Lavender Town. We're not ready to go south yet because of
Snorlax, so we have to take the only other path out of the town.

============
5e. Westward
============

o---------------------------o Spearow and Pidgey have switched again, and
| ROUTE 8  POKEMON LISTING  | Meowth has returned from Route 5. As expected,
o---------------------------o the Ekans/Sandshrew pairing is present, as well
| Pidgey     (Common)       | as a new pairing: Growlithe/Vulpix. If you didn't
| Meowth     (Common)       | pick Charmander as your starter, this is your
| Ekans      (Common, FR)   | first chance to get a Fire-type. The next chance
| Sandshrew  (Common, LG)   | will come up soon (Flareon), but these two are
| Growlithe  (Rare, FR)     | perfectly fine. Growlithe has superior Special
| Vulpix     (Rare, LG)     | Attack over Vulpix, but Vulpix is a bit quicker.
o---------------------------o

Quite a few Trainers on this Route. Let's not keep them waiting!

To access the grass, you'll need Cut. If you look very closely, you can see a
very small dark patch of grass in the center of the short grass (no wild
Pokemon). In each of these patches is a berry. A Rawst Berry is on the right
side of the second row, a Lum Berry's on the left side of the third row, and a
Leppa Berry can be found on the right side of the third row. Can't find them?

Another guard blocks the way to Saffron, so take the underground path.

If you have the Itemfinder, you can find loads of sucky items here. Sell them
for cash if nothing else.

From the east staircase, go to the top row and stand directly under the first
light. Take three steps right, face down, press A. An Ice Heal will thank you.

Stand on the blue line and follow it until you pass another light. Stand where
the blue line and light intersect and take five steps left. Face down and press
A for an Antidote.

Stay on this blue line and continue until you get to the third light. Two steps
left from the light, face up, and press A for a Burn Heal.

There will be a large gap in between the third and fourth light. When you get
to the fourth light, stand directly under it, still on that blue line. Face
left and claim an Awakening.

Stay on the blue line and continue until you get to the fifth light. Five steps
left of it, face down, press A and be one Parlyz Heal richer.

Continue and position yourself in front of the west stairs and take one step up
and three steps right. Press A for a Potion.

5f. Celadon City - The City of Rainbow Dreams
=============================================

Welcome to the largest city in all of Kanto, Celadon. Naturally, there are many
things to do, so let's start off with shopping. The Department Store can be
found on the western side of the building. It's got two entrances, so pick one
and go inside.

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

===================
5h. Celadon Mansion
===================

Talk to the old lady on the first floor. She'll give you Tea, a Key Item.

Once you get five of Erika's entries in the Fame Checker, her last entry will
be on the second floor's bookshelf.

Go behind the Pokemon Center found east of here, follow the path, and enter the
mansion's back door. Go all the way up the stairs and into the door to find an
Eevee of your very own sitting on a table. It's Lv.25, and evolves into one of
five different things.

Water Stone: Vaporeon     Thunderstone: Jolteon      Fire Stone: Flareon

You can't evolve Eevee into Espeon or Umbreon as long as it (Eevee) stays in
FireRed or LeafGreen, because there's no time. Trade it to Ruby, Sapphire, or
Emerald. If you want, you could also trade Espeon and Umbreon into your game
from Colosseum (but only if you've beaten Colosseum's Story Mode first).

Leave and go all the way to the left for an Ether. You're done here.

======================
5i. Rocket Game Corner
======================

While the Game Corner provides a few forms of entertainment (and Pokemon found
only here), this will only deal with the dungeon aspect of Rocket Game Corner.
For information on the slots and prizes you can win, please refer to the Extras
section.

Also let it be noted that you are more than welcome to tackle the very sexy
Erika (in battle) before coming here, I always wait until I complete this
mission. If you want to beat the Gym first, refer to that section and then come
back to this one.

The Game Corner is southwest of the Pokemon Center. Talk to the innocent Rocket
Grunt standing next to the poster by the counter, and start a battle.

Team Rocket Grunt                  o-------------------------------------o
Raticate, Lv.20; Zubat, Lv.20     / Finally, a Raticate of legit level! /
Money: 640                       o-------------------------------------o

He will run into a wall and vanish. Examine the poster and stairs appear.

Gawk at the lovely FPV and head south. Go to the right and into the room. A
surprised Grunt will commence attack.

Team Rocket Grunt
Drowzee, Lv.21; Machop, Lv.21
Money: 672

Head to the left side of the room for another battle.

Team Rocket Grunt
Raticate, Lv.21 (x2)
Money: 672

Go into the room he was guarding and pick up the Escape Rope on the table. Go
back to the entrance and go down the right staircase.

Follow the path to a battle.

Team Rocket Grunt
Zubat, Lv.17 (x2); Koffing, Lv.17; Grimer, Lv.17; Raticate, Lv.17
Money: 544

Head down the stairs. Go into the room that's under there, and you're greeted
by another Grunt.

Team Rocket Grunt
Machop, Lv.21 (x2)
Money: 672

If you head all the way south of him, you'll find a partially hidden item ball
that contains TM21, Frustration. Get back into the open and head left. See the
double arrow tiles? These are direction-forcers. Stepping on one of these will
spin you in circles and move you (very quickly, to the relief of many, I'm
sure) until you come across a yellow tile or another direction-forcer, which
will spin you and force you in _that_ direction until you ultimately come
across a yellow tile.  Step on the arrow pointing down and get Rare Candy #4.

Step on the up arrow, then circle around and step on the left arrow. Go down
into the right arrow, then go all the way to the far left wall. Go all the way
to the bottom and step on the top arrow (the middle of three pointing right).
The battle that follows is optional (like most of these), but why waste exp.?

Team Rocket Grunt
Rattata, Lv.20; Drowzee, Lv.20; Raticate, Lv.20
Money: 640

Follow the path, pick up the Blackglasses, and go down the stairs. A Max Ether
sits on the table. Don't leave it there. Follow the path up to find a Grunt and
TM49, Snatch. Take them in whichever order you like.

Team Rocket Grunt
Koffing, Lv.21; Zubat, Lv.21
Money: 672

Upon defeat, the Grunt will drop the Lift Key. Take it and backtrack to the
first room with direction-forcers. Step on the bottom arrow.

Pick up the Moon Stone (two left!), and weave around the blocks on the north
path. An X Speed awaits you. Take the arrow directly below the one next to the
far left yellow tile. Pick up TM12, Taunt, and be on your way.

Go south of the TM and step on the upper of the two arrows pointing right, or
just step on the arrow pointing down. Step right, then left. Go down and step
on the bottom arrow if you want a Super Potion. Otherwise, step on the top
arrow, then the last arrow to complete this section. Go up the stairs.

A battle awaits you if you go left a little bit.

Team Rocket Grunt
Rattata, Lv.19 (x2); Raticate, Lv.19 (x2)
Money: 608

There's a Hyper Potion in the upper left corner, and a battle its right.

Team Rocket Grunt
Grimer, Lv.20; Koffing, Lv.20 (x2)
Money: 640

Go back downstairs and enter the elevator. Go to the floor select in the upper
left corner and select B4F as your destination. Exit and go all the way left to
find a lonely Calcium. Let's be its friend. Go north and find two Rockets
guarding a door. Rough 'em up.

Team Rocket Grunt
Sandshrew, Lv.23; Ekans, Lv.23; Sandslash, Lv.23
Money: 736

Team Rocket Grunt
Ekans, Lv.23; Sandshrew, Lv.23; Arbok, Lv.23
Money: 736

After you defeat them both, the door will open. Save your game, head up, and
confront the last enemy in this dungeon.

========================================
5j. Meet Him, Waste Him - It's Giovanni!
========================================

Giovanni is the leader of Team Rocket. He's not too thrilled about your having
beaten his entire troupe of monkeys- er... loyal minions (yeah, that's it), and
he plans on throttling you in battle as payment.

Of course, we're not going to let that happen.

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Money: 2900

Onix and Rhyhorn are Rock/Ground, and we know what to do with those. ;)

Kangaskhan's a Normal-type. Its Ability is Early Bird, which cuts sleep time in
half. It's got good Attack power, but lacks the moves to make good use of it.

Pick up the Silph Scope and use the Escape Rope you found to exit this place.

If you haven't beaten Erika yet, get someone with Cut (Are you [still] using
Farfetch'd?) and head to the southern part of Celadon City. Head all the way
right and north to find a small tree to cut down. Stand to the right of it and
take two steps right and one step up. Press A for a PP Up. Now go back to the
south central part where you saw the first small tree. Cut the small tree and
follow the path. Otherwise, skip to section 6.

====================
5k. Celadon City Gym
====================

A girls-only Gym... woohoo!

Don't forget to talk to the Gym sign to add Erika to the Fame Checker.

Erika has quite a few underlings, but you only have to fight two of them if you
do it correctly (Tamia and Lori, far left and to Erika's right). But after you
beat Erika, you can't fight them anymore, so why would you waste experience by
not fighting them?

Beauty Tamia                        Talk to Tamia after defeating her to add
Bellsprout, Lv.24; (x2)             her to Erika's section of the Fame Checker.

Money: 1728          lists her as "Lola."      Money: 368

======================================
5l. Erika, the Nature-Loving Princess!
======================================

The lovely Erika is my favorite Gym Leader in the Kanto region, but that
doesn't mean I'm not going to help you stomp the living crap out of her.

My Pokemon:

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|   Poliwag  |  30 |   Machop   |  30 |   Grimer   |  30 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|   Pidgey   |  30 |   Flareon  |  30 |  Mr. Mime  |  30 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Erika's Pokemon:

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
| Victreebel |  29 |  Tangela   |  24 | Vileplume  |  29 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Money: 2900

You may be intimidated at first by Erika's Victreebel. It's the evolved form of
the Weepinbell you may or may not have seen earlier, and has exceptional stats
befitting a Stage 2 evolution. All of Erika's Pokemon are capable of inflicting
Special Conditions, so you'll want to bring a few healing items. Erika's
Tangela knows Ingrain, which will restore its HP between turns. Because of
this, you'll have to be fast in destroying it. It should be noted that Tangela
is the only pure Grass-type in the game, which means it gains a Poison weakness
as well as one from Bug while losing a Psychic weakness. Since every other
Grass-type is also part Poison, Victreebel and Vileplume both share a weakness
to Psychic. Use that to your advantage and play accordingly, and you'll win in
no time. If you don't have Psychic attacks, Flying or Fire will do the trick as
well. Put Erika in her place for the Rainbowbadge, the ability to use Strength
out of battle, and TM19, Giga Drain.

===============================================
6. Paying Respects, Ninjas, and the Fifth Badge
===============================================

Major Objectives
----------------

* Put the soul of a dead Pokemon to rest.
* Make your way to Fuchsia City.
* Get two more HMs.
* Earn your fifth Badge.

The next stop on our journey is Lavender Town. Before we leave, though, we need
to pick up a new HM. Try to head west out of the city and you'll find that a
second Snorlax blocks the path. There's a tree to Cut at the end of the fence,
and your second 2-on-2 battle awaits to the northwest of it.

Young Couple Lea & Jed
Rapidash/Ninetales, Lv.29
Money: 1624

Go left until you see a house. Enter and talk to the girl for HM02, Fly. You
can use this to fly to any town or city you've previously visited, so Fly to
Lavender Town.

Consider this further notice. If you have someone to teach Fly to, you can take
Ch'ding off your team now (but you probably haven't been using him, huh...).

========================
6a. Ascend Pokemon Tower
========================

Gary's already come and gone, but we now have the item necessary to unveil the
identities of the Ghosts and scale the tower without fail. First, ascend to the
third floor, and the floor becomes foggy. From here on, wild Pokemon will jump
you. Which ones, you ask?

o-------------------------------o Why, these ones, of course. When I list
| POKEMON TOWER POKEMON LISTING | Cubone as rare, I meant it; We're talking
o-------------------------------o 1 in 50 if you're lucky rare. Or maybe it's
| Gastly   (Common)             | just my horrid luck acting up again. Either
| Haunter  (Rare)               | way, they're only found here (unless you have
| Cubone   (Rare)               | LeafGreen), so you _have_ to find one if you
o-------------------------------o want to fill your Pokedex.

Let's get started. Go to the north of the room and battle one of many, _many_
Channelers inside the tower. Next to her is an Escape Rope.

Channeler Hope
Gastly, Lv.23
Money: 736

Also, since all the Channelers use Ghost Pokemon, Gastly will be the only thing
you see until you get up to the fifth floor.

Go back to the bottom and battle the Channeler on the bottom.

Channeler Patricia
Gastly, Lv.22
Money: 704

North of her...

Channeler Carly
Gastly, Lv.24
Money: 768

Head to the fourth floor and take a single step to your left.

Channeler Laurel
Gastly, Lv.23 (x2)
Money: 736

Take the Elixir, then fight the woman south of it.

Channeler Jody
Gastly, Lv.22
Money: 704

Weave around the south side and pick up the Great Ball, then go up to find an
Awakening. Make your way to the left side of the room and challenge the
Channeler near the stairs.

Channeler Paula
Gastly, Lv.24
Money: 768

Head to the fifth floor and you'll see an item ball surrounded by a big blue
grid thingy of some kind. Ignore this for now and beat the old woman above it.

Channeler Ruth
Gastly, Lv.22
Money: 704

Next victim is the woman by the east staircase.

Channeler Tammy
Haunter, Lv.23
Money: 736

Now head into the grid thingy to be fully healed. Pick up the Cleanse Tag and
go left.

Channeler Karina
Gastly, Lv.24
Money: 768

Channeler Janae
Gastly, Lv.22
Money: 704

Get the Nugget, re-heal and go up the stairs. Take two steps, and:

Channeler Angelica
Gastly, Lv.22 (x3)
Money: 704

Get the Awakening south of the stairs and follow the path.

Channeler Jennifer           Channeler Emilia
Gastly, Lv.24                Gastly, Lv.24
Money: 768                   Money: 768

Pick up the fifth Rare Candy, head near the stairs, save, and walk to them. A
Ghost will appear, but the Silph Scope will reveal it to be a Lv.30 uncatchable
Marowak. You can flee, but you shouldn't waste the experience. End the battle,
and you can go up to the sixth floor. Now, just head straight up.

Team Rocket Grunt                         Team Rocket Grunt

Team Rocket Grunt
Zubat, Lv.23 (x2); Rattata, Lv.23; Raticate, Lv.23
Money: 736

Defeat him and talk to Mr. Fuji. He will throw you into his house at the foot
of the tower and give you the Poke Flute for your trouble. Any sleeping Pokemon
will instantly wake up upon hearing the flute (even your foe's, so keep that in
mind). This also works in battle, so you will never have to buy Awakenings ever
again. If you have the Itemfinder, you can get the Soothe Bell if you use it on
the spot where Mr. Fuji was standing in Pokemon Tower.

=====================
6b. Wake Up, Snorlax!
=====================

Alright... we're finally ready to get that half-ton giant out of our way, but
wait a second. There are _two_ Snorlax. Which one do we wake up? Both paths
lead to our destination, Fuchsia City.

Cycling Road covers Routes 16 through 18 and is the quicker of the two paths.
There are a few patches of grass, but since you're required to have a Bicycle,
it's much quicker than taking the other path. There are a few Trainers at the
top and a couple scattered along the route.

Silence Bridge is really only Route 12, but I will use it to refer to this
entire area, which encompasses Routes 12-15. There are more items, Trainers,
and Pokemon on this route, and it takes a while to get to Fuchsia.

==================
6c. Silence Bridge
==================

If this is your option, or you want to do this because you've completed Cycling
Road, Fly to Lavender Town if you're not there already. Head out to Route 12.
Go upstairs when you get into the building and talk to the girl for TM27,
Return.

The path is almost 100% straightforward, with little to no breaks in the path.

o--------------------------------o Remember, I use the name Silence Bridge to
| SILENCE BRIDGE POKEMON LISTING | refer to the path connecting Lavender and
o--------------------------------o Fuchsia; if you can't find a Pokemon in one
| Pidgey      (Common)           | Route, go to another one. And now, at long
| Pidgeotto   (Rare)             | last... Ditto, the breeding master, is
| Venonat     (Common)           | available for you to catch. Is your starter
| Ditto       (Rare)             | a male? Want that baby Bulbasaur? Breed it
| Oddish      (Common, FR)       | with Ditto! Catch one of these things as
| Gloom       (Rare, FR)         | soon as you possibly can. It will become
| Bellsprout  (Common, LG)       | your very best friend as far as breeding
| Weepinbell  (Rare, LG)         | goes. In battle, it turns into the enemy
o--------------------------------o and has 5 PP for all their moves. Whee.

Snorlax lies ahead of Gia & Jes. Talk to it, and it will prompt you to use the
Poke Flute. Do so, and hear the sounds of awakening. Snorlax will attack you
for waking it up, and with good reason.

Snorlax is only Lv.30, but it has lots of HP. If you accidentally kill it, you
can still catch the one by Celadon (if you haven't already). It has a Chesto
Berry equipped and knows both Rest and Snore. It also has very high Special
Defense, so stick with physical attacks. Once the battle is ended,  stand where
Snorlax was and use the Itemfinder for a Leftovers. If you don't have the
Itemfinder, just enter the house just past him.

Inside here is the Fishing Guru's younger brother. Tell him you like to fish,
and he'll give you the Super Rod. He also wants you to use it to catch a
Magikarp and show it to him. He just loves his giant Magikarp.

Now that you have the Super Rod, you can catch many Water Pokemon that you've
never seen up to this point. Fish as much as you want, and then continue.

That was fun, wasn't it? If you go upstairs when you enter the house, you'll
find one of Professor Oak's Aides. If you have caught/owned at least 50 species
of Pokemon, he'll give you the Experience Share, a very helpful item if you
have weak Pokemon to raise. West of there is your destination, Fuchsia City.

Make sure you can Fly to Fuchsia. If you want to do the Cycling Road path, Fly
to Celadon City and look below. Otherwise, skip to section 6e.

================
6d. Cycling Road
================

If you choose this path, or you want to do this because you've completed
Silence Bridge, Fly to Celadon City.

Snorlax blocks the west exit. Talk to it, and it will prompt you to use the
Poke Flute. Do so, and hear the sounds of awakening. Snorlax will attack you
for waking it up, and with good reason.

Snorlax is only Lv.30, but it has lots of HP. If you accidentally kill it, you
can still catch the one at Silence Bridge (if you haven't already). It has a
Chesto Berry equipped and knows both Rest and Snore. It also has very high
Special Defense, so stick with physical attacks. Once the battle is ended,
stand where Snorlax was and use the Itemfinder for a Leftovers. If you don't
have the Itemfinder, just enter the house just past Snorlax. If you go
upstairs, you'll find yet another of Professor Oak's Aides who will give you
the Amulet Coin if you have caught or owned at least 40 species of Pokemon.
This item, when held by someone who takes part in a Trainer battle, will double
the money earned. Quite helpful for those who are hard pressed for money (but
like I said earlier, you'd have to go overboard purchasing items for that to
happen; I had well over 100,000 money at this point, _without_ selling
absolutely everything).

To pass the guard, you _must_ have a Bicycle. You will automatically mount it
when you leave the guard house via the west exit.

Take the right path for now; you can always go back and do the other side. When
you see the yellow path start, start counting signs that are on the left side
of the water. When you count three signs, position yourself level with that
third sign. Go one square up and one to the right, hold B and press A for a
hidden Rare Candy.

Now go back up the hill and take the left side.

Then the path'll split again. Of these, take the one on the right. There's a
hidden Full Restore 2 spaces to the left of the "Watch out for discarded
items." notice. Now go back and take the left path.

There's a hidden PP Up in the middle of the path if your back wheel is at eye
level with the light post that's right after Jamal. If that's a bit confusing,
hug the water's edge so you can see the sign across from you. Make yourself one
square up and one square left of that sign. Since you're holding B, you'll face
down, which means all you have to do is just press A and the PP Up is yours.

When you get to the point where the path splits horizontally, make sure you're
one step north of the sign that's there. Then position yourself in the middle
of the left path and press A for a Max Revive.

It's smooth sailing until you get to a ledge you can jump. Get back up there
and stand to the right of the "Cycling Road - Slope ends here!" sign. Go one
step up and three steps right to find a Max Elixir.

Inside the house, there's a version-dependent trader in here. If you're playing
FireRed, this guy wants a Golduck. If, like me, you're playing LeafGreen, he
wants Slowbro instead. Either way, he will give you a Lickitung in exchange, a
Pokemon you can find nowhere else. You can find both Golduck _and_ Slowbro in
the wild, so don't worry about it too much. If you don't have one to spare,
just come back later. Anyway, there are only 3 Trainers left who lie on the
outskirts of Fuchsia, so let's whomp 'em and be done with this horrendous path.

=============================================
6e. Fuchsia City - Behold! It's Passion Pink!
=============================================

The Pokemon Center's kind of hard to get to... it's on the western part of
town, but you'll have to get off the path to get there. I thought having Cut
was _required_ in order to get anywhere in Fuchsia, but I was wrong. Whew.

In the house next to the Gym, talk to the old guy. He's Bill's grandfather, and
he's part of Bill's section of the Fame Checker.

Next to the Pokemon Center is the Move Deleter, who is capable of making your
Pokemon forget their HM moves (Take that, Flash). You may be coming here often.

There are two houses to the right of the Pokemon Center. One of them is home to
Safari Zone's Warden, and he is incapable of speaking in a coherent fashion
because he's lost his teeth. Quite sad when the leader of a major Pokemon
facility can't find his own false teeth...

Check the blue bookshelf for one of Koga's entries in the Fame Checker.

Next door is home to the Fishing Guru's older brother. Tell him you like
fishing, and he'll give you a Good Rod. Of course, since you may or may not
already have the Super Rod, there's really no point in using this item. If you
don't have the Super Rod, go get it. It's at Silence Bridge.

If you go to the house near Fuchsia City's sign, you can either Cut your way
through to get everywhere, or just follow the light grass path. If you do, you
can't miss the PokeMart. Let's go check it out.

o---------------------------o
|  FUCHSIA CITY  SHOP LIST  | Great Balls not doing the trick? Get yourself an
o---------------------------o Ultra Ball! These are the best Pokemon-catchers
|  Ultra Ball........$1200  | that money can buy, but that's not really saying
|  Great Ball.........$600  | much. If you decide to catch any legendaries,
|  Super Potion.......$700  | you'll be wondering to yourself why there isn't
|  Revive............$1500  | a "Mega Ball" with a better catch rate than an
|  Full Heal..........$600  | Ultra Ball... oh, and check out the Full Heals.
|  Max Repel..........$700  | Now, _those_ are worth mentioning. Get several.
o---------------------------o

Sell crap, stock up, and get out. Moving on!

Northwest of the Pokemon Center is a Move Tutor who teaches Substitute.

Continue following the path until you find a building at the far back of the
city. This is the Safari Zone, and we're going to have to make a pit stop here
before we advance.

===================
6f. The Safari Zone
===================

You _have_ to come here, at least to get Surf and Strength.

It's also recommended that if you're not here to catch Pokemon, you come here
with Max Repels; encounters are somewhat high.

The people at the Safari Zone have crafted their very own special Poke Ball
called a Safari Ball to be used only in the Safari Zone. When you get in, you
get 30 of them and six hundred steps to take. Once you run out of either, you
"lose" and have to pay to get in again. It costs 500 money to get in each
time, but it's a VERY small price to pay for the things you can get here. Some
Pokemon can only be caught here, and you may be wanting to pull your hair out
at how stubborn some Pokemon can be, but there are some pretty nice items here,
too. So chin up, pay up, and head into the wilderness. Ooh, pretty picture!

What's different about the Safari Zone is the fact that for one, you can't hurt
the Pokemon. Actually, you don't even send out a Pokemon. In fact, almost your
entire battle menu changes. If you choose to bean 'em with a rock (Rock),
they'll get mad and their flee rate will go up, but so does the catch rate (it
makes them easier to catch). The opposite is true if you choose to feed them
mysterious treats (Bait) that have just randomly appeared from nowhere land
(flee rate down, catch rate down (harder to catch)). Oh, you can't save in
here, either.

Explanation over. Time to get some items. There are none in the first area, so
head northeast to the next area.

Head to the center, go up the stairs, and go up some more for a Leaf Stone.

Go down the far left stairs and pick up the hidden item ball in the grass
that's a bit north of it. Inside is TM11, Sunny Day.

In the northwest corner of this little area is a Max Potion.

Can't really miss the Full Restore... there is nothing of importance in the

Rest House. All it does is waste steps; just completely ignore it.

Follow the path to the next area. Take the first steps you see and follow this
path to a sandy area that has the Quick Claw. Go back to the beginning of this
area (don't go south) and follow the path for TM47, Steel Wing. Enter the Rest
House and talk to the man in the upper right corner; he's part of Koga's
section of the Fame Checker.

You should be almost out of steps by now, if you've been following this. Just
come back in and blaze through it, ignoring the parts where you go off the path
for items.

Pick up the Protein and go into the next area. You'll see a notice that wants
you to find the Warden's lost teeth, and that they're "around here somewhere."
Four steps south, and lo and behold, it's the Gold Teeth. Get them as well as
TM32, Double Team, then enter the house. Talk to the only guy there. This is
the Secret House, and you've won a free HM03, Surf, as your prize.

You're done here, so you can leave if you want. Press Start and pick "Retire."
Otherwise, just drain your steps or catch things until you're finished.

Take the Gold Teeth to the Warden. He'll give you HM04, Strength, as thanks.
Teach it to someone and move the rock for a Rare Candy.

Well, we have nothing else to do, so let's take care of the Gym.

====================
6g. Fuchsia City Gym
====================

This place has invisible walls that block the seemingly direct path to Koga. If
you look closely at each of the tiles, you'll see that some of them have white
dots in each of the four corners. These tiles are the invisible walls. You'll
have to work your way around from the right side to reach Koga, but there's a
guy over on the left side who wants to try his luck against you. Defeat him,
and then make a circle around the Gym, wasting Trainers as you go.

Go back and heal. If you're not feeling lazy, Fly somewhere and get some
Antidotes. Chances are, you'll be needing them.

====================================
6h. Koga, the Poisonous Ninja Master
====================================

Save before you attempt to battle Koga. Thanks to the fact that most of his
Pokemon are immune to one of their only weaknesses because of their Ability,
the fact that Poison now runs off of the Attack stat instead of Special (it was
that way in RBY, changed in GSC), and the fact that Koga's signature move,
Toxic, will never lose the double poison effect until the battle ends, he's a
LOT HARDER than before. Of course, this is the only boss in which you might
actually need to do some preparing for, so...

My Pokemon:

o------------o-----o

Money: 4300

Koffing and Weezing sport Levitate, which makes them immune to all direct
Ground-type damage. This means that their only weakness is Psychic, and most
Psychic-types have very low Defense, which means Sludge will eat them for
breakfast. Luckily, Psychic-types are much faster than Poison-types, so you
should hope that your speed will be enough to deliver a OHKO.

Muk has a Ground weakness, but it has very high Defense and knows Acid Armor
(Defense +2) to boot, so stick with the above plan.

Remember: If you become poisoned by Toxic, its effect stays until the battle
ends. However, the double damage counter starts over if you switch out. Heal it
as soon as you possibly can. If you can't, frequently switch out so the poison
doesn't do too much damage.

Beat Koga and you will earn the Soulbadge, the ability to use Surf out of
battle, and TM06, Toxic.

==========================================================================
7. Enter the Center, Even More Bad Guys, a Former Gym, and the Sixth Badge
==========================================================================

Major Objectives
----------------

* At long last, enter Saffron City.
* Stop Team Rocket once again.
* Defeat the master of Saffron's former Gym.
* Earn your sixth Badge.

Now that you have Surf, Fly to Lavender Town. Head to Silence Bridge and go
south until you see the item ball you couldn't get before. In it is TM48, Skill
Swap.

===============
7a. Tea For You
===============

We're finally ready to get into the one city we've been blocked out of until
now: Saffron City. We have four entry points (Cerulean, Lavender, Vermilion,
and Celadon). Vermilion's the easiest way to find everything, so fly there.
Head north out of the city and continue until you get to the gate house. Try to
go in and the guard will immediately steal the Tea from within your bag. He'll
mentally teleport its goodness to the three other guards, so they will all let
you pass freely into Saffron City.

===================================================
7b. Saffron City - Shining, Golden Land of Commerce
===================================================

Team Rocket took over Saffron City, and you'll find Grunts walking freely in
the streets. You'll have to dispose of them yourself, but... not yet.

The Pokemon Center is to your left if you entered from Vermilion. If you
didn't, it's in the southwest corner of the city.

East of there is Mr. Psychic's house. Talk to him, and he'll give you
(surprise, surprise) TM29, Psychic. Don't use it right away on your Psychic-
type, as most (if not all) of them will learn it on their own if they haven't
already.

As we head east and circle around, we come across Silph Corporation. There's a
Grunt who's sleeping on the job next to the entrance. He won't be this way
until you beat Koga, so if you haven't done that yet (which means you haven't
been following my walkthrough, pseudo-shame on you), go do it now.

Stay out of there. We'll be going there very shortly, but not quite yet!

Take note of the Grunts blocking the doorways to the two houses in the
northwest corner of the city.

Head around the buildings and you'll find the Fighting Dojo and Saffron's Gym.
Also ignore these, as they are not important right now. The Pokemon Fan Club
lies south of these. This is where Trainer fanboys gather and spill random,
nonsensical babble about how totally freaking cool Trainer X is. Your job is to
link up with your friends and beat the crap out of them several times over.
This way, they'll move from the lower area to the desolate, barren area up top
and rave about how awesome _you_ are. I'd rather have someone talk about how
cool _I_ am than some other guy, so it sounds like a good deal to me.

West of there is the PokeMart. Let's see what they've got for sale.

o---------------------------o Wait, what? What happened to the Ultra Balls?
|  SAFFRON CITY  SHOP LIST  | I suppose they figured that you'd come here first
o---------------------------o and beat a couple things even though you're not
|  Great Ball.........$600  | supposed to, so they provided a sucky item list.
|  Hyper Potion......$1200  | It could be argued that they swapped it for the
|  Revive............$1500  | Hyper Potion, which heals 200 HP when used. They
|  Full Heal..........$600  | still don't hold a candle to the very cheap, very
|  Escape Rope........$550  | effective Lemonade that heals 80 HP for a measly
|  Max Repel..........$700  | 350 money. Besides, you won't even _need_ to use
o---------------------------o a Hyper Potion until you're much higher level.

Well, that's all for the tour of Saffron. You can enter Silph Co. now.

=============
7c. Silph Co.
=============

Enter and view the spiffy FPV. The remixed music sounds awesome, no?

The goal of this dungeon is to get the Card Key, which will open any and all
doors you may find throughout this dungeon, and save Silph Co.'s president from
Team Rocket. The only problem is that this place is infested with Grunts and
Scientists. Oh, and the fact that there are 10 floors to explore.

Lucky for you, you don't _have_ to explore them all. In reality, you only need
to go to four of them. That's _such_ a waste of experience, money, and items,
though. I have faith in you. You can handle it.

Team Rocket's not going to whoop themselves, so let's get going, shall we?

Go in the elevator and go to the 11th floor. You'll be able to see the
President, but he's blocked off and you can't get to him. Head south and beat
the Grunt in your path for some practice annihilating these clowns.

Sigh... still jokes after all this time. You'd think they would have at least
tried to raise their monotonous Pokemon, or at least use something different.

Keep going, get the Zinc, then head to the fifth floor. See that weird square
thing? That's a teleporter, and it will take you to another teleporter. Most of
the time it's on another floor, but that's not going to help much because most
of the doors are locked. Don't step on them even _after_ you get the Card Key;
it's still easier to manually ascend the building.

bit and get the Protein behind the door.

7d. Gary Battle 6

Aw, man...

My Pokemon:

Gary's Pokemon:

        Find your starter. Gary's team
          is in the column below it.

o---------------o---------------o---------------o
|   Bulbasaur   |   Charmander  |    Squirtle   | <- Which one's your starter?

|Exeggcute....38|Growlithe....35|Gyarados.....35|
|Charizard....40|Blastoise....40|Venusaur.....40|
o---------------o---------------o---------------o

Money: 1400

Pidgeotto has finally evolved into Pidgeot, and it still isn't very much of a
threat. Pidgeot never is, and will continue to suck throughout its career on
Gary's team.

Being a basic, able-to-evolve Pokemon just doesn't cut it anymore, now that
we're reaching the halfway point in levels. Both Growlithe and Exeggcute will
fall very quickly to basic type matching.

Alakazam may be super fast and have super Special Attack to match, but it's
still lacking in Defense. Snorlax would be ideal here, but if you don't have
one handy, a good Ground type like Marowak or Dugtrio can get the job done with
their high Attack.

Gyarados is still packed with a menacing Leer attack, which means use Electric.
Seriously, you should either have an Electric-type or at least an Electric-type
attack by now in use. Just because I don't doesn't mean you don't have to. v_v

And then there's the fully evolved starter. Venusaur's no threat, just type
match and a winner is you. Blastoise can be treated the same way. Charizard's
the only one you really have to look out for, unless you've got someone that
knows Rock Throw/Slide to pick on that nifty double weakness to Rock.
Flamethrower's quite strong, and will kill your weak Pokemon one-shot style.

Still, it shouldn't take a whole lot of strategy to send him packing.

Talk to the man and he'll give you a free Lv.25 Lapras. Unless you've gone
ahead, this Lapras is the very first Ice-type you've seen IN THE ENTIRE GAME.

Took 'em long enough. Take the bottom teleporter.

Did you get ambushed?

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|  Rhyhorn   |  37 |
o------------o-----o

Money: 4100

Alright, let's see... well, Onix has been permanently dropped from Giovanni's
roster, and he has magically added a very strong Nidoqueen to his team, and a
Nidorino as well.

Ok, I lied. Nidoqueen isn't strong at all. Use Ground attacks for everyone but
Rhyhorn. To use Grass or Water on that thing should be SOP by now.

Defeat him, and all traces of Team Rocket will vanish from Saffron City. Talk
to the president and he'll give you the Master Ball as thanks for being a hero.
This nifty little item will catch _any_ wild Pokemon without fail. Since
depositing your Poke Balls for safe keeping is no longer an option, you have to
be extra careful not to accidentally use it.

The Wierdo suggests that you attach the Master Ball to one of your Pokemon. I
don?t know why I didn?t think of this before. It?s a good idea.

Remember those two blocked doors on the northwest side of town? You can go
there now.

The one on top is Copycat's house. If you talk to Copycat with a Poke Doll in
your inventory, she'll teach Mimic to your Pokemon. The one on bottom is a
house with a boy who thinks that Copycat is cute and a girl writing a letter.

Yeah, sure. Go heal if you need to, then get to the Fighting Dojo.

=====================
7f. The Fighting Dojo
=====================

Long ago, the Fighting Dojo and the current Saffron City Gym shared Gym status.
Then Sabrina and her psychic posse came along and thoroughly spanked the holy
gods out of everyone here and declared Sabrina's Gym the one true Gym.

That Gym is next door, and it's our next destination. First things first.

Black Belt Koichi
Hitmonlee, Lv.37; Hitmonchan, Lv.37
Money: 888

After defeating Koichi, he'll allow you to take either Hitmonlee or Hitmonchan
as your prize since he can't give you a Badge (because Sabrina stomped him and
took away the Gym status).

Hitmonlee has limited moves, but has much higher Attack than Hitmonchan. Both
are Fighting-types, so Attack is important (but that's not always the case).
Hitmonchan can learn a variety of elemental attacks, making him very versatile,
but if you take a look at his Special Attack (which they all run off of), it's
very, very low. However, he makes up for this with his decent Speed and overall
average stats (excepting Sp.Atk).

To the Gym!

====================
7g. Saffron City Gym
====================

There are nine rooms in this Gym. There are no doors - only teleporters. You
must use them in the correct order if you want to challenge Sabrina. None of
the Gym Trainers here are required; all are optional. And once again, here's
some bad art to help you get around Saffron City Gym.

o----------o----------o----------o  Step on a teleporter, signified by letters
| N      E |  L    E  | M      H |  A-O, to be taken to that same letter. As
|     1    |    2     |     3    |  you can see, all you have to do is take the
| O      D |  K    F  | N      G |  teleporter directly north or south of the
o----------o----------o----------o  one you just came from and you'll make it.
| C      K |          | M      B |  If not, just take the lower left teleporter
|     4    |    5     |     6    |  once you get into the upper left corner.
| D      J |        O | L      C |  Since the path to Sabrina is so indirect,
o----------o----------o----------o  I've numbered the rooms from 1-9. Check the
| G      I |          | H      B |  numbers for each of Sabrina's lowlies.

You've been seeing Kadabra the entire game, and you should know that its
extremely low Defense spells defeat. Use physical attacks. Mr. Mime isn't that
difficult, either. Just beat on it and it'll fall. Venomoth, while not Psychic
in type, knows Psychic-type moves. Fire, Flying, or Psychic will do the trick.
Alakazam is her power Pokemon - Psychic (the attack) is very strong and, when
combined with Calm Mind, can deliver quick KOs. Destroy Sabrina and her
Psychic-types to earn the Marshbadge, the ability to use Rock Smash out of
battle, and TM04, Calm Mind.

============================================================================
8. Water to Fire, Raising the Dead, Pointless Quizzes, and the Seventh Badge
============================================================================

Major Objectives
----------------

* Surf across the ocean to Cinnabar City.
* Restore life to an ancient friend.
* Explore Pokemon Mansion.
* Unlock the Gym's doors and make your way to its Leader.
* Earn your seventh Badge.

There are two paths you can take, but Route 21's the quickest. Besides, Seafoam
Islands are in the way, so taking the path from Fuchsia just isn't worth it.

That path is covered in the Seafoam Islands section.

===============
8a. Return Home
===============

Fly to Pallet Town. Go to your mom and heal if need be. Get in the water and
head south. The grass here only contains Tangela, so pick one up and be on your
way. There aren't many Trainers here, and it's really nothing you've never seen
before. Free experience, I guess.

8b. Cinnabar Island - The Fiery Town of Burning Desire
======================================================

Welcome. This is a small, compact city. Since it's on an island, it'd have to
be, but hey. There are only three items on our Things To Do list, and number
one happens to be "check out the PokeMart."

==================
8c. Raise the Dead
==================

Go to the building to the left of the Pokemon Center. This is the Pokemon Lab,
where scientists study various aspects about Pokemon.

Each room has things of note. The first room, to the right, contains an old man
who will trade his Electrode for your Raichu. The woman across from him will
trade her Tangela for your Venonat. This is a bad deal, as you can find all the
Tangela you want just south of Pallet Town. Do it only if you're a
completionist, or if you have a spare Venonat, I guess. It comes with a
Stardust, but that's not exactly the best item ever.

In the second room, there's a Move Tutor who will teach your Pokemon Metronome.

In the third room is a guy who will trade his Seel for your Ponyta. You haven't
even _seen_ a Ponyta yet, so you'll have to come back later. Also here is the
Resurrection Machine, which is run by a weird doctor. Give him either the Helix
Fossil, Dome Fossil, or Old Amber. Leave the Lab and come back here for your
new Lv.5 Omanyte, Kabuto, or Aerodactyl.

| Grimer        (Uncommon, FR)    | and Trainers for you to encounter, so enter

Keep to the left side and go up. Stand next to the upper of the small rocks,
face it, and press A to get a Moon Stone (only one more left!). Follow the path
a bit (ignore the stairs for now) and go right for an Escape Rope.

Go all the way left for a Trainer.

The switches are all hidden inside statues you'll find throughout this dungeon.
One of these statues are next to Johnson. Hit the switch and go back to where
you got the Escape Rope; go through the now-opened door for a Protein. Go back
to the main area and head up the stairs, then up the stairs in front of you.

Go down for a Max Potion and a battle.

On the table is a book. Each of these contains out-of-order entries regarding
the discovery of Mew and the story behind Mewtwo's birth. While it's not
mandatory to completing the quest, I just think it's something fun to do.

Mew gave birth. We named the newborn Mewtwo.

room west of there is one of the diary entries about Mew.

Diary: July 10
We christened the newly discovered Pokemon, Mew.

Follow the path up and right. The path will split; the north room houses
another diary entry.

Diary: July 5
Guyana, South America
A new Pokemon was discovered deep in the jungle.

Go to the far right of this room for a Calcium. Leave, go back to the stairs,
and hit the switch. Go right and up to a room that was previously locked, and
go up the stairs there.

Head right as far as you can go for an Iron. Hit the switch and have a battle.

Go all the way right. Stand on the top row, one space from the wall. Face right
and press A for a hidden Rare Candy. Go down and down the stairs for an HP Up.
Go back upstairs and go to the broken floor. Fall down the _left_ side (the
right side yields nothing but wasted time as you'll have to redo things).

Go right and get the Carbos. Don't follow the path anymore; if you leave
through the door, you'll exit the building, and when you re-enter, you'll be at
the entrance - not the exit you just left from. Instead, go downstairs.

Follow the path, ignoring the rooms and blocked doors. A Full Restore awaits.
Go into the room that you passed and find another diary entry.

Diary: Sept. 1
Mewtwo is far too powerful. We have failed to curb its vicious tendencies...

Oh, and there's a battle, too.

Go into the north room and stand in the southeast corner. Take one step up and
two steps left. Face right and press A for an Elixir.

Hit the switch and enter the adjacent room. Pick up TM14, Blizzard, and
continue. The Secret Key lies on a table in the next room, and TM22, Solarbeam,
is on the ground just south of it.

This marks the end of Pokemon Mansion. Summary of the diary entries:

Very shortly after discovering Mew in South America, they impregnate it and it
has a baby, which they call Mewtwo. Unfortunately for them, Mewtwo isn't as
happy and lovey as they'd like, and he up and kills everyone. Now Mewtwo's
gone, and no one really knows where (and the only people who do know are dead).

Something like that. Use the Escape Rope you found and get out of here.

We're almost there. Blaine has tons of underlings for you to battle.
Fortunately for you, you don't have to fight any of them. In the upper left
corner of each room is a quiz machine that will ask you a question. If you get
it right, the door will open (you can still battle the Trainer if you want). If

you get it wrong, the battle is forced, and the door opens on defeat. Ready?

Blaine's strategy is quite simple - kill you quick with Fire Blast. All his
Pokemon know it, and it's the second most powerful Fire attack in existence.
It's slightly inaccurate, but it will connect most of the time, and it hurts.
If it burns you, it's a plus; you'll probably die from Fire Blast next turn. If
you've got someone that knows Rain Dance, use it. It prevents you from being
burned, and will severely hinder Blaine's Pokemon's Fire-based attacks. This is
the first boss I actually had trouble with. Curse you, Fire Blast! Winning this
[difficult] battle earns you the Volcanobadge, the ability to use Waterfall out
of battle, and TM38, Fire Blast.

Leave the Gym and Bill will talk to you. He'll ask if you want to go to this
place called One Island way down south. If you want to go there, say yes. If
you'd rather keep going with your adventure, say no. He'll wait in the Pokemon
Center here until you say yes. I'm going to continue on as if you said no.

If you leave, you won't be able to come back for a while.

===================
9. The Eighth Badge
===================

There are no extra little tidbits, no people to save, Pokemon to catch, or
anything like that in order to get the eighth Badge. There's only one Gym left,
and it's in Viridian City. Onward!

=====================
9a. Viridian City Gym
=====================

The Leader's returned, but no one really knows who exactly he is. To make
matters worse, he's holed himself in the far corner of his huge Gym. The
direction-forcers are back, and Gym Trainers are scattered all over the place.
It doesn't take a genius to figure out, but it can get a bit frustrating.

If you want, head left and beat the Trainer, then follow the path back to the
beginning.

Go back to the beginning and take the right side direction-forcer pointing up.

Then go around Takashi, past Samuel, and you'll be face-to-face with Viridian
City's Gym Leader.

Note that if you leave at any time, all Trainers go back to their original
spots, which means you'll have to go around Warren and under Takashi to get to
the Gym Leader.

Two words: Use Water. Giovanni's pathetic as far as Gym Leaders go. You'd think
he'd have a bigger selection, or at the very least evolved both his Rhyhorn
(which evolves at Lv.42). His signature attack is Earthquake, which has no
added effects, but is very powerful and very accurate. Getting through the
second of two yawner Gyms gets you the Earthbadge and TM26, Earthquake.

Talk to Giovanni after the battle to make him vanish forever. Use the
Itemfinder where he stood to get the Macho Brace.

Talk to the entrance guy to add him to Giovanni's section of the Fame Checker.

10. The Elite Four

Congratulations! With the Earthbadge in your possession, you're ready to take
on the Elite Four. Go heal and leave west from the city to Route 22. Go north
through the patch of grass and save your game.

==================
10a. Gary Battle 7
==================

Gary will appear if you try to travel west. He's had eight Badges for a while
now, and he wants to warm up for the Pokemon League with a battle against you.
His intentions are good, I suppose, but hey. Let's cream him anyway.

Ok, hold on. What's up with people and not evolving their Rhyhorn? Both he and
Giovanni could have had mega-strong Rhydon (who are _still_ double weak to both
Water and Grass, mind you), but no. They're just fine being weak.

Pidgeot's been eating what's left of Raticate's Poke-Wheaties. Can you tell? It
may be ten levels higher than it was in our last encounter, but it's still weak
as ever. It knows Featherdance, so keep your physical hitters away from it. By
the time you're finished reading this sentence, Pidgeot should be dead. If not,
go back and train, you're weak ;[

Surf Rhyhorn and be done with it. Thunder[bolt] Gyarados and make it die.

He should have evolved Growlithe and Exeggcute by now. Your Pokemon should have
a huge advantage in power as well as speed, so type match and you'll do fine.

When battling against Alakazam, act is if you're under Torment (can't use the
same move twice in a row). It's way fast and still knows Disable, so alternate
your attacks so you don't lose a turn.

Rock-types will work the best against Charizard, as it defends against both
Charizard's types and can deliver 4x damage to it. Water-types _will_ work, but
doesn't defend and do as much damage as a Rock-type [attack]. For Blastoise and
Venusaur, just type match. Use Electric for Blastoise and Fire for Venusaur.

After the win, Gary leaves, leaving you to head to Victory Road.

===================
10b. Indigo Plateau
===================

To get through Victory Road, the only HM you'll need is Strength. It's also
long, so it's suggested to restock before entering. You also might want to
bring all those [Max] Ether/Elixir you've hopefully been saving.

Before you actually _get_ to Victory Road, you must first show off all your
Badges so the guards will let you through.

After you show off the Thunderbadge, check for a dark green spot to the left of
the wall for a Leppa Berry.

After showing the Soulbadge, you should see a square of land that sticks out
like a sore thumb (it's quite large). Stand in the lower right corner and take
two steps left and one step up. Press A for a Max Ether.

When you get to the grassy area, stand between the statues and press A for a
hidden Ultra Ball.

o----------------------------o  After going up a little, you should see a 3x4
| ROUTE 23  POKEMON LISTING  |  rectangle patch of short grass. There is an
o----------------------------o  Aspear Berry in there - search for the dark
| Spearow      (Common)      |  spot (it sticks out).
| Fearow       (Uncommon)    |
| Mankey       (Common)      |  After showing the Volcanobadge, go up and to
| Primeape     (Rare)        |  the right a little bit. There's a Full
| Ekans        (Common, FR)  |  Restore hidden in the lone rock.
| Arbok        (Rare, FR)    |
| Sandshrew    (Common, LG)  |  Just before entering Victory Road, stand one
| Sandslash    (Rare, LG)    |  square southwest of the left statue. Face up
o----------------------------o  and press A for a Sitrus Berry.

=================
10c. Victory Road
=================

o--------------------------------o  Are you ready? This is a long dungeon that
| VICTORY ROAD  POKEMON  LISTING |  is filled with strong Pokemon and the best
o--------------------------------o  Trainers in all of Kanto, and if you want
| Machop     (Common)            |  to have any chance of beating the Elite 4,
| Machoke    (Uncommon)          |  you should have no problem at all beating
| Onix       (Uncommon)          |  them. Enough babble, let's go already!
| Golbat     (Uncommon)          |
| Mankey     (Common)            |  Begin by using Strength on the boulder to
| Primeape   (Rare)              |  your left. Push it down, then all the way
| Marowak    (Rare) (later)      |  to your right. Push it up, then push it all
| Arbok      (Uncommon, FR)      |  the way right. Push it two squares up so
| Sandslash  (Uncommon, LG)      |  you're able to push it down after pushing
o--------------------------------o  it one square right. Go back to the
beginning, up the stairs, and to the right. If you go up from the left side,
you'll be jumped.

Go to the right and follow the path to see two item balls. You can only get one
at a time, so if you want the other one, leave the dungeon and come back for
it. The left ball is a Rare Candy; the top one is TM02, Dragon Claw. Stand in
the spot that's three squares to the right of the TM, face left, and press A
for a Full Restore.

Now go left and down the stairs. Go right and press A on the rock for a hidden
Ultra Ball. Continue on the path and you'll probably get jumped.

left, two squares down, and two squares left again. The blockade will vanish,
so go up the stairs and head right to (maybe) get jumped.

Black Belt Daisuke
Machoke, Lv.43 (x2); Machop, Lv.43

Go north and then east for another battle.

Juggler Vincent

stairs. There's a boulder to push, but let's get that item first.

Sandslash, Lv.42

The item is... a Max Revive. Spiffy! Okay, go back to the boulder and push it
two steps up and all the way left. Go down a bit and get TM50, Overheat, then
go back and push the boulder one square down. Push it four squares left. If
you want a battle and a Guard Special, take the ladder (but you'll have to come
back and push the boulder from its initial location).

Pokemaniac Dawson
Charmeleon, Lv.40; Lapras, Lv.40; Lickitung, Lv.40
Money: 1920

Otherwise (or if you've already done it, push it three squares down and one
right to make the obstacle vanish. Go back to where the boulder initially was,
go left a bit and up the stairs for a fight.

Cooltrainer Alexa
Clefairy, Lv.42; Jigglypuff, Lv.42; Persian, Lv.42; Dewgong, Lv.42; Chansey,
Lv.42

Now follow the path and go down the stairs for two more fights.

into the hole, then push yourself into it. Push the boulder all the way to the
left. Go back to the right and go up the small stairs.

Juggler Nelson
Drowzee, Lv.41; Hypno, Lv.41; Kadabra, Lv.41 (x2)
Money: 1640

Now go right and up the ladder. Straight up is a double battle.

Cool Couple Ray & Tyra
Nidoqueen/Nidoking, Lv.45
Money: 2160

Go down the ladder to find Victory Road's exit as well as a Move Tutor who will
teach one of your Pokemon how to use the move Double-Edge.

Leave and follow the path until you're in the open. Go left. Stand in the lower
left corner and take one step right. Face up and press A for a Lum Berry.

Stay on the left side and follow the path up (it's a dead end anyway). Eh...
how to explain this? It will loop around the right side, and the rock things
form a V shape. Go into this V, take a step up and face down. Press A for a Max
Elixir. Use the Itemfinder for assistance if you can't find it.

One last thing of note: Each Pokemon with the highest level on each of the
Elite Four's teams will be equipped with a Sitrus Berry, which will restore 30
HP when they drop below 1/3. It's not much, but if someone knows Thief or
Covet, they can steal it. Berries are rare in this game! >_<

=========================
10d. Elite Four - Lorelei
=========================

Lorelei is first in line, and she uses Ice-type Pokemon. One could argue that
it's to make up for the extreme lack of Ice-types you've seen up to this point
(Victory Road helped a little, but there aren't many Ice-types anyway).

Lorelei's Pokemon:

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|  Dewgong   |  52 |  Slowbro   |  52 |  Cloyster  |  51 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Jynx    |  54 |   Lapras   |  54 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Full Restores: 2
Money: 5400

o---------o  Moveset: Surf, Hail, Safeguard, Ice Beam
| Dewgong |     Type: Water/Ice
o---------o  Ability: Thick Fat (Fire and Ice damage halved)

Lorelei should be thanking the future right about now, because the only way she
could possibly be annoying is because of attacks that didn't exist in the old
days. Unless you have a weakness in play, she'll lead with Hail, then Safeguard
to protect her party from Special Conditions (including confusion) for five
turns. If you wish to play defensive, use a Water-type to resist both Surf and
Ice Beam. Make sure that if you do, have an attack that will damage Dewgong (A
Lapras with Thunderbolt is a perfect example). You're going to want to put
Special Conditions on the rest of Lorelei's team if your team isn't powerful
enough to kill them in one or two shots, so try to stall with your Water-type
until two turns before Safeguard drops. Switch out, then kill Dewgong. Then
switch to whoever you want to inflict the Special Condition.

o---------o  Moveset: Amnesia, Yawn, Ice Beam, Surf
| Slowbro |     Type: Water/Psychic
o---------o  Ability: Oblivious (Prevents attraction)

I don't know if it's just me, but Slowbro just does _not_ like to attack. It
repeatedly alternated between Yawn and Amnesia for about 10 rounds before
deciding to Ice Beam me. It took a while for me to figure out its fourth move
(and even longer for Cloyster, and even _longer_ for Jynx, but that was due to
silliness). Slowbro has lots of HP, very high Defense, and has the ability to
raise its decent Special Defense to obscene levels with Amnesia. The key here
is a fast kill with a quick Electric type. If you don't have one, try using
Sleep Powder or some other disarming attack to stop Slowbro from powering up.

o----------o  Moveset: Hail, Spikes, Protect, Dive
| Cloyster |     Type: Water/Ice
o----------o  Ability: Shell Armor (Prevents critical hits)

Be careful here. Only stopping to refresh Hail, Cloyster will use Protect every
round until it runs out of PP (he did against me, anyway). Put it to sleep or
use weak attacks until it starts to use Dive. Power hit it when Hail runs out;
Cloyster will waste a turn to get it going again. Cloyster's got phenomenal

Defense because of that hard shell, so special attacks are the key. Electricity
quickly comes to mind. Gee, I wonder why?

o------o  Moveset: Lovely Kiss, Ice Punch, Doubleslap, Attract
| Jynx |     Type: Ice/Psychic
o------o  Ability: Oblivious (Prevents attraction)

Jynx follows a very simple attack pattern. Lovely Kiss, then Ice Punch you to
death. Most of my Pokemon were female, so it took a _very_ long time for me to
figure out her fourth attack was Attract. She avoided it like the Plague, and
wouldn't even do it after I Tormented her. Anyway, the Psychic-type in her gets
rid of the Fighting weakness, so I suggest having a strong Fire-type do the job
here. Remember: The Poke Flute will wake your Pokemon up, so save your items!

o--------o  Moveset: Confuse Ray, Body Slam, Surf, Ice Beam
| Lapras |     Type: Water/Ice
o--------o  Ability: Water Absorb (Healed by Water-type attacks)

Lapras has lots and lots of HP. At its level, it has a bit over 200 HP. Most
Pokemon in their mid-50s have around 120-170 HP, if that puts it in perspective
for you at all. It can be a trifle annoying, especially if Lorelei hasn't used
up her Full Restores yet. This is the only of Lorelei's Pokemon that can
actually do something about it if you decide to throw a Water-type at her. Keep
in mind that Body Slam has a high chance of paralyzing you (30%, which _is_
high when most effect percentages are 10) and Confuse Ray has 100% accuracy.
Disabling is also the key here, and the same techniques you employed against
Slowbro can be used here.

Once you defeat Lorelei, move on to the next room.

=======================
10e. Elite Four - Bruno
=======================

Next up is the mighty Bruno, Fighting-type extraordinaire.

Bruno's Pokemon:

|    Onix    |  51 |    Onix    |  54 | Hitmonchan |  53 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
| Hitmonlee  |  53 |  Machamp   |  56 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Full Restores: 2
Money: 5600

o---------o  Moveset: Rock Tomb, Earthquake, Iron Tail, Roar
| Onix 51 |     Type: Rock/Ground
o---------o  Ability: Rock Head (No recoil damage)

Surf. If you're too stupid to keep someone with an awesome move like Surf
constantly on your team or don't want to use it, use any damage-dealing Grass-
type move that isn't called Bullet Seed, Absorb, or Mega Drain instead.

o---------o  Moveset: Earthquake, Double-Edge, Iron Tail, Sand Tomb
| Onix 54 |     Type: Rock/Ground
o---------o  Ability: Rock Head (No recoil damage)

See previous Onix strategy.

o------------o  Moveset: Rock Tomb, Sky Uppercut, Counter, Mach Punch
| Hitmonchan |     Type: Fighting
o------------o  Ability: Keen Eye (Prevents accuracy loss)

Fighting is weak to Flying, but use a special hitter instead. If you try to use
Fly against it, he can still hit you with Sky Uppercut, and then Counter it
next turn for double damage, or pick on your weakness with Rock Tomb. Someone
like Alakazam or Hypno would be nice here. Just make sure that if you're using
Hypno, you're using Psychic-type attacks.

o-----------o  Moveset: Brick Break, Mega Kick, Facade, Foresight
| Hitmonlee |     Type: Fighting
o-----------o  Ability: Limber (Prevents paralysis)

Not like you've set it up, but Brick Break will get rid of your Light Screen
and Reflect. Mega Kick is inaccurate and powerful, and it hurts when it
connects. It's a good thing that Hitmonlee doesn't get STAB (Same Type Attack
Bonus) for it. It only has 5 PP, though. Drain them and you're out of the deep
woods. Facade will double in base power (it'll be as strong as Mega Kick with
almost perfect accuracy) if you inflict poison, paralyze, or  burn on him. In
short... don't do it :) He'll only use Foresight when he either runs out of PP
for everything else or you slap a Ghost-type in his face, which lets him
perform normal attacks on them.

o---------o  Moveset: Rock Tomb, Cross Chop, Scary Face, Bulk Up
| Machamp |     Type: Fighting
o---------o  Ability: Guts (Attack doubles if poisoned, burned, or paralyzed)

Bruno's Pokemon are all about the power, and Machamp is no exception. Cross
Chop is the most powerful Fighting-type attack, and it can deal some serious
damage if Machamp uses Bulk Up (ATK+1, DEF+1). But, like most Fighting Pokemon,
it lacks in Special Defense. Bring back whatever Psychic damage-dealing Pokemon
you've been using and lay waste to this four-armed beast. Scary Face will be
used to slow you down so he can get the first strike, so switch to something
that resists Cross Chop (Poison, Bug, or Ghost). If you can drain Cross Chop's
PP, you're in the clear unless he's been abusing Bulk Up to power up Rock Tomb.

Once you defeat Bruno, move on to the next room.

========================
10f. Elite Four - Agatha
========================

We're halfway done. Hang in there! Agatha wants deep down to be a Ghost-type
master, but Gastly's evolution is the only Ghost-type in Kanto. Alas.
Therefore, she must take advantage of Gastly's final form, Gengar, and its
other type, Poison. She utilizes a strategy similar to Koga's; annoy and drain
life slowly.

Agatha's Pokemon:

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|   Gengar   |  54 |  Haunter   |  54 |   Golbat   |  54 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|   Arbok    |  56 |   Gengar   |  58 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Full Restores: 2
Money: 5800

o-----------o  Moveset: Confuse Ray, Double Team, Toxic, Shadow Punch
| Gengar 54 |     Type: Ghost/Poison
o-----------o  Ability: Levitate (Immune to Ground-type damage)

This particular Gengar can be annoying if you're slow. It will confuse you to
reduce your chance of attacking, and use Double Team to reduce your chance of
landing a hit when you manage to break through confusion. Toxic is there to eat
your HP away while you're sitting there trying to attack and failing. Umbreon
with Faint Attack is this Gengar's worst nightmare, but at this point in the
game, it's impossible to have Umbreon. Just keep those Full Heals handy and
just hit it until it dies.

o---------o  Moveset: Curse, Hypnosis, Dream Eater, Mean Look
| Haunter |     Type: Ghost/Poison
o---------o  Ability: Levitate (Immune to Ground-type damage)

With Curse at its disposal, Haunter's not going to live very long. If you can't
already tell what its strategy is, it will Curse you, put you to sleep, then
restore its HP from Curse with Dream Eater. Sometimes it'll trap you, but it's
a rare occurrence from me. Most of this can be avoided, though, if you power
hit Haunter on the first turn and hope it does Curse. Switch out to avoid the
effect. Also, if it puts you to sleep, you can guess that Dream Eater's coming,
so use the Poke Flute to wake yourself up and have Agatha miss a turn.

o--------o  Moveset: Confuse Ray, Air Cutter, Poison Fang, Bite
| Golbat |     Type: Poison/Flying
o--------o  Ability: Inner Focus (Prevents flinching)

If Golbat had better Attack to take advantage of its attacks, I'd be slightly
worried; all its attacks have added effects that can totally ruin a Pokemon.
Air Cutter has a high critical hit ratio, Poison Fang has as _50%_ of adding
_Toxiclike_ poison, and Bite can make you flinch. It's pretty fast, too, but
I'm just making it sound lethal. If you have Ice-type attacks at your disposal,
save them. Rock-types resist both Air Cutter and Poison Fang, so play defensive
for a bit if you're in trouble. Use that time to heal your wounded Pokemon.

o-------o  Moveset: Sludge Bomb, Iron Tail, Bite, Screech
| Arbok |     Type: Poison
o-------o  Ability: Intimidate (Active Pokemon's ATK-1 upon entry)

I kind of wish that some of these Ekans and Arbok that Trainers use would have
Shed Skin instead of Intimidate... oh well. Keep the Ground-types away at first
so they won't be hindered by Intimidate. Screech won't be used much, but it can
help get that OHKO. Sludge Bomb is the strongest Poison-type attack there is,
and it's got a high chance of poisoning you. If you've got a Magneton, go ahead
and put it up against Arbok if you're having trouble; it resists Bite, double
resists Iron Tail, and has immunity to Sludge Bomb. Screech doesn't affect
Bite's damage because Bite runs off of Special Attack now. Psychic-types should
also do well, but keep in mind they will take _lots_ of damage from Arbok's
physical attacks due to the standard low Defense.

o-----------o  Moveset: Hypnosis, Sludge Bomb, Nightmare, Shadow Ball
| Gengar 58 |     Type: Ghost/Poison
o-----------o  Ability: Levitate (Immune to Ground-type damage)

This Gengar is different from the previous one because it doesn't waste time
trying to annoy; it straight up tries to murder you. It's especially important
to immediately wake yourself up if you get put to sleep, because Nightmare
drains a quarter of your maximum HP between turns as long as your Pokemon is
still sleeping and only needs to be used once as long as it's asleep. If you
can burn Gengar to reduce damage from Sludge Bomb and Shadow Ball, that'll
help. It will also get a little damage in when you're spending a turn waking
yourself up.

Once you defeat Agatha, move on to the next room.

=======================
10g. Elite Four - Lance
=======================

Automatically walk through the corridor and you'll see Lance, a user of dragon
Pokemon. If you can't kill each of his pokemon in at most two hits, you're
going to have lots of trouble here.

Lance's Pokemon:

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|  Gyarados  |  56 | Aerodactyl |  58 | Dragonair  |  54 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
| Dragonite  |  60 | Dragonair  |  54 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Full Restores: 2
Money: 6000

o----------o  Moveset: Dragon Rage, Bite, Hyper Beam, Twister
| Gyarados |     Type: Water/Flying
o----------o  Ability: Intimidate (Active Pokemon's ATK-1 upon entry)

Since there's a higher chance you don't have an Electric-type on your team (I
don't) than a Water-type, I'll actually post something other than a one-word
strategy. Dragon Rage will always do 40 damage no matter what. Bite's no big
deal, but Hyper Beam is. Each of Lance's Pokemon have this technique, and
thankfully its power will remain at 150. Lance will have each of his Pokemon
use Hyper Beam when you're damaged somewhat so you will die. After performing
Hyper Beam, his Pokemon need to recharge for a turn. Remember that this
recharge comes _before_ he has a chance to use an item, so if you knock him
into the red the turn he uses Hyper Beam, don't heal if you survive; kill him!

o------------o  Moveset: Ancientpower, Hyper Beam, Wing Attack, Scary Face
| Aerodactyl |     Type: Rock/Flying
o------------o  Ability: Rock Head (No recoil damage)

Aerodactyl will probably be your toughest challenge yet. It's got sky high
Attack power and monster Speed. Ancientpower only has 5 PP, but it's got a 10%
chance to boost all stats by 1 level. If this happens, start worrying. The last
thing Aerodactyl needs is more Attack and Speed. Why Scary Face is present is
really unknown to me. Chances are that _all_ of your Pokemon are going to be
much, _much_ slower than Aerodactyl, so he's not going to waste time using it.
A non-Ice Water-type will do the trick here; Water/Ice Pokemon will be
destroyed by Ancientpower.

o-----------o  Moveset: Thunder Wave, Safeguard, Outrage, Hyper Beam
| Dragonair |     Type: Dragon
o-----------o  Ability: Shed Skin (1/3 chance to cure a Special Condition)

Well, it's no Arbok, but Dragonair will do. Don't bother with Special
Conditions; Shed Skin will get rid of it in a turn or two. Both Lance's
Dragonair have very similar movesets. Outrage is a terrible Dragon-type attack
that causes self-confusion in two or three turns, so it's really nothing to
worry about. Dragon is only weak to itself (Dragon) and Ice, so bust out the
Dewgong you shouldn't have if you've been following this walkthrough or Lapras
and lay some Ice-type smackdown on Dragonair. Don't waste it all, though;
you'll want to deliver some quadra-style damage on his most powerful Pokemon.

o-----------o  Moveset: Outrage, Wing Attack, Safeguard, Hyper Beam
| Dragonite |     Type: Dragon/Flying
o-----------o  Ability: Inner Focus (Prevents flinching)

To be honest, Lance's Dragonite isn't anything special. It carries attacks
you've seen before (and bad ones at that). Dragonite's Dragon/Flying, so guess
what that means? Ice Beam and Blizzard will more than likely OHKO it. It _is_
Lv.60, though, so it's got a bit of power behind those bad attacks.

o-----------o  Moveset: Safeguard, Outrage, Dragon Rage, Hyper Beam
| Dragonair |     Type: Dragon
o-----------o  Ability: Shed Skin (1/3 chance to cure a Special Condition)

I don't feel as if there's a real need for a strategy here. It's just like the
other Dragonair, except with Dragon Rage instead of Thunder Wave (a stupid
trade, but good news for you).

Once you defeat Lance, move on to the next room.

======================
10h. The True Champion
======================

Walk through the door to find... Gary. He's always been one step ahead of you,
and it seems as though the Pokemon League is no exception; he's already the
Champion! I'm sick of his trash talking, so let's put him in his place once and
for all. This is the final battle, so don't hold back!

Gary's Pokemon:

        Find your starter. Gary's team
          is in the column below it.

o---------------o---------------o---------------o
|   Bulbasaur   |   Charmander  |    Squirtle   | <- Which one's your starter?
o---------------o---------------o---------------o
|Pidgeot......59|Pidgeot......59|Pidgeot......59|
|Rhydon.......59|Rhydon.......59|Rhydon.......59|
|Alakazam.....57|Alakazam.....57|Alakazam.....57|
|Gyarados.....61|Exeggutor....59|Gyarados.....59|
|Exeggutor....59|Arcanine.....61|Arcanine.....61|
|Charizard....63|Blastoise....63|Venusaur.....63|
o---------------o---------------o---------------o

Full Restores: 4
Money: 6300

o---------o  Moveset: Sand-Attack, Aerial Ace, Featherdance, Whirlwind
| Pidgeot |     Type: Normal/Flying
o---------o  Ability: Keen Eye (Prevents accuracy loss)

Pidgeot will alternate between using Sand-Attack and Aerial Ace to steadily
damage you while lowering your accuracy. You don't really have to worry about
Whirlwind; there's no reason to waste time putting sand in your face only to
have it all magically vanish. Rock-types should beware of Featherdance and the
sharp Attack drop that comes with it. Use an Electric- or Ice-type instead.

o--------o  Moveset: Rock Tomb, Earthquake, Take Down, Scary Face
| Rhydon |     Type: Rock/Ground
o--------o  Ability: Lightningrod (Electric-type attacks target this Pokemon)

Rhyhorn's types don't change when it evolves. Surf and be done with it.

o----------o  Moveset: Psychic, Reflect, Future Sight, Recover
| Alakazam |     Type: Psychic
o----------o  Ability: Synchronize (Mirrors BRN, PAR, and PSN on the foe)

Alakazam is cake now that Calm Mind is gone. He'll alternate between Psychic
and Future Sight (like a moron), and will surprisingly rarely use Recover (he
sat there and used Future Sight repeatedly when he was a Tackle away from
defeat, and was so stubborn I had to Torment him to find out what his last move
was, and I wanted to kill Gary when I knew it was Recover. What a loser!). At
any rate, a strong Normal-type should do the trick here.

o----------o  Moveset: Dragon Rage, Bite, Thrash, Hydro Pump
| Gyarados |     Type: Water/Flying
o----------o  Ability: Intimidate (Active Pokemon's ATK-1 upon entry)

I see Hydro Pump on Gyarados and laugh. Set damage is easily get-aroundable,
and Bite runs off of Special Attack now. That leaves only one real attack you
should almost worry about - Thrash. Oh no, not self-induced confusion!

Zzzap says the Electric-type.

o-----------o  Moveset: Giga Drain, Sleep Powder, Egg Bomb, Light Screen
| Exeggutor |     Type: Grass/Psychic
o-----------o  Ability: Chlorophyll (Speed increase when sunny)

Egg Bomb is pretty inaccurate... Giga Drain only has 5 PP. Poke Flute cures
Sleep Powder. Exeggutor's double weak to Bug, but it's unlikely you have any
strong Bug-type attacks to take advantage of it (Silver Wind?). Try to take
advantage of its Flying weakness instead.

o----------o  Moveset: Extremespeed, Flamethrower, Bite, Roar
| Arcanine |     Type: Fire
o----------o  Ability: Intimidate (Active Pokemon's ATK-1 upon entry)

Extremespeed will always go first, and it's quite strong, but like all powerful
attacks, it only has 5 PP. Bring out a Pokemon with high Defense to absorb the
hit, and make sure it can survive Flamethrower. Keep those Full Restores handy
in case you get Burned. Count out five uses of Extremespeed and it's smooth
sailing from there on out.

o-----------o  Moveset: Fire Spin, Aerial Ace, Fire Blast, Slash
| Charizard |     Type: Fire/Flying
o-----------o  Ability: Blaze (Fire damage x1.5 when HP drop below 1/3)

Fire Blast is all you need to worry about. It's the most powerful Fire attack
available to most Fire-types (everyone but Charizard, in fact), so your Pokemon
will be feeling many pain-type things (i.e. death). Keep those Revives handy;
if you're too slow, simply revive your fainted Pokemon and stall with items
until he uses up all five Fire Blasts. That is your chance to attack.

o-----------o  Moveset: Rain Dance, Hydro Pump, Surf, Body Slam
| Blastoise |     Type: Water
o-----------o  Ability: Torrent (Water damage x1.5 when HP drop below 1/3)

Hydro Pump is the most powerful Water attack a Water-type other than Blastoise
can have, but it has no added effects. Rain Dance will enhance its destructive
power even more, but it comes at a cost. When raining, Thunder will never miss.
Blastoise is weak to Electric, so if he makes it rain, call a storm.

o----------o  Moveset: Growth, Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Synthesis
| Venusaur |     Type: Grass/Poison
o----------o  Ability: Overgrow (Grass damage x1.5 when HP drop below 1/3)

Venusaur will use Growth to raise its Special Attack and make Solarbeam, the
most powerful Grass technique for everyone but Venusaur, stronger. In addition
to that, Sunny Day makes it so Solarbeam doesn't require a charge, so Gary can
fire them off five in a row. He seems to forget that Sunny Day powers up Fire-
type moves as well, so use them to your advantage; Venusaur's weak to Fire.

Once you defeat Gary, you're done!

==============
10i. Aftermath
==============

Professor Oak will take you into the next room and register your team into the
Hall of Fame. Watch the brand new ending, then load your game.

If you haven't cleared Three Island yet, you'll have to go back and do that. If
this is the case, you will be able to battle the Elite Four until you do and
you meet the requirements for the National Pokedex. Go to Professor Oak's Lab
and talk to him.

If you have cleared Three Island before the Elite Four's defeat, Professor Oak
will tell you how many Pokemon you have in your Pokedex. If you have at least
60 species owned, he'll bring you to his lab. He'll ask you to go find Pokemon
that have never been seen in Kanto, and Gary will come in, asking why Oak keeps
asking _you_ for help when _he_ is obviously far superior for the job. Oak will
once again tell him to shut up and he'll take both Pokedexes. He'll mess with
them for a second, then return them to you, nationalized! Now you have the
National Pokedex, which will record data on all species you meet from now on
that aren't part of Kanto's first 151. Gary leaves, saying he'll go to One
Island. You're free to do the same.

For more information about the Sevii Islands, please check section 12.

You won't be able to challenge the Elite Four again anytime soon, either. The
reason? Lorelei isn't there. Where'd she go, I wonder? Oh well.

================
11. Kanto Extras
================

These are all side quests of some sort that are based in Kanto.

================
11a. Dog Catcher
================

After getting the National Pokedex, one of the three legendary "dogs" from
Johto will roam Kanto. When you run into it, you'll hear the legendary music
'remix', so if the giant Lv.50 beast in front of you isn't a big enough hint,
the music is sure to be. Which one of these "dogs" will you find? It all
depends on your starter. If you chose Bulbasaur, you will be graced with Entei;
if Charmander was the one you picked, Suicune will be your prize, and if you
started with Squirtle, Raikou will await you.

One very important note is that it's much harder to catch them than in the
metal games. The reason for this is they will flee even if you put them
to sleep. When you encounter it, hit it hard so it will be weakened. It will
retain all damage and Special Conditions from when you last ran into it.

To avoid the hassle, just use your Master Ball. You still have it... right?

=======================
11b. Rocket Game Corner
=======================

Found in Celadon City, the Game Corner is much fun for everyone. Before we go
here, there's just one thing we need to do. Head to the southern part of the
city and you'll find a few buildings next to each other. Enter the leftmost one
and talk to the guy in the upper left. He'll give you the Coin Case, an
invaluable item to gamblers and perfectionists alike. Without this, you can't
carry Coins for the slot machines.

Once inside the Game Corner, take three steps north and press A for 10 Coins.
From there, 5 steps north. Face left and press A for 20 Coins.

Go all the way to the far left. Stand behind the bald man and take one step up.
Press A for 10 coins. Five steps down and press A for 20 Coins.

Stand 2 steps under the second slot machine from the left, on the bottom. Take
one step east and press A for 10 Coins. Six steps east from there: press A for
10 Coins.

Stand next to the upper right chair on the far right side. Face north and press
A for 10 Coins.

Many, many people have told me about the fact that the free 100 coins are still
there, but the reason I couldn't find them is because they've been moved. Find
them by standing in front of the sticker machine. Face left and press A.

The two slot players on the far right will each give you 20 Coins. Stand above
the northeasternmost chair, face right, and press A for 40 Coins. Four steps
west and one step north gets you 10 more Coins if you press A. Two steps, is
it? to the west (use the Itemfinder to make sure) and press A for 10 coins. The
man on the right side of the far left column will give you 10 Coins. Stand
behind him, face down, and press A for 10 coins, for a final total of 300
Coins. Do with them what you will.

If you want to buy Coins, you can buy them in sets of 50 or 500 (but still no
1000 or 5000, I'm afraid). Talk to the lady on the right side of the counter.

If you'd rather earn your Coins, all you can do is play the slot machines. I
find it much easier to just mash A repeatedly than try to get something; you'll
win quite often, and I've gotten 777 a lot using this 'method', more than if I
had actually tried to line them up.

One more thing of note. There's a machine in the lower right corner that will
stamp the sprites of your current party on the six Poke Balls found on the back
of your Trainer Card. It has no use other than look pretty.

PRIZES
------

These games aren't for your health; you can get some pretty spiffy prizes next
door. There are three lovely ladies who will be more than happy to take your
Coins in exchange for their wares. Here's what you can get from each lady:

o------------------------o      o----------------------o     o---------------o
|          LEFT          |      |        CENTER        |     |     RIGHT     |
o------------------------o      o----------------------o     o---------------o
| Smoke Ball.........800 |      | Abra.............120 |     | TM13.....4000 |
| Miracle Seed......1000 |      | Clefairy.........750 |     | TM23.....3500 |
| Charcoal..........1000 |      | Scyther (FR)....2500 |     | TM24.....4000 |
| Mystic Water......1000 |      | Pinsir (LG).....2500 |     | TM30.....4500 |
| Yellow Flute......1600 |      | Dratini.........4500 |     | TM35.....4000 |
o------------------------o      | Porygon.........6500 |     o---------------o
                                o----------------------o

Smoke Balls let you escape from wild Pokemon, but it's much cheaper to pay 1000
moneys for a Poke Doll than 16,000 moneys for a Smoke Ball. And you don't have
to walk that much farther from here, either. Miracle Seed, Charcoal, and Mystic
Water are useless; the percentage they raise their respective type's power by
isn't significant enough to cause a major change in damage. Don't waste your
Coins on them. The Yellow Flute cures confusion, and never runs out; one is all
you will ever need. More or less, these items suck; stay away from this lady.

The center lady has rare or hard-to-catch Pokemon that you may or may not have
encountered in your journeys, with the exception of Porygon; that Pokemon can
_only_ be found here, and you _must_ buy it if you want to complete the Pokedex
and pleasure an old man.

The TMs, from top to bottom, are Ice Beam, Iron Tail, Thunderbolt, Shadow Ball,
and Flamethrower. Everything but Iron Tail is a dependable attack in battle,
and you should be spending most of your Coins on these once you get your fill
of Pokemon.

===============
11c. Powder Guy
===============

In Cerulean City, there's a house to the left of the one that was robbed. In
this house resides a man who will give you a Powder Jar for you to collect
Berry Powder in. This powder can then be traded for some pretty sucky items.

How do we go about getting this Berry Powder? Why, from Berries, of course!

You'll need at least two people playing with the Wireless Adapter to crush
Berries. Each of you selects a berry, and then you tap A repeatedly to crush
the berry. The faster you do it, the more powder you'll get. If you all do it
together, you'll get even more powder, so the basic idea is to be fast and
accurate, which are two traits I personally lack. ^_^

11d. Seafoam Islands
====================

To complete this side quest, you will need Surf and Strength. Bring lots of
Ultra Balls and someone who can inflict a Special Condition that isn't Poison
or Burn. Fly to Fuchsia City and head south. Jump the ledges and have yourself
two fights on land.

| SEAFOAM  ISLANDS  POKEMON  LISTING |
o------------------------------------o
| Zubat      (Common)                |  This dungeon can get really confusing.
| Golbat     (Uncommon)              |  I've tried to separate my instructions
| Seel       (Common) (later)        |  so they're not so hard to read.
| Dewgong    (Rare) (later)          |  Hopefully, this will help you get
| Psyduck    (Uncommon, FR)          |  through Seafoam Islands without you
| Golduck    (Uncommon, FR) (later)  |  taking confusion damage.
| Slowpoke   (Uncommon, LG)          |
| Slowbro    (Uncommon, LG) (later)  |
o------------------------------------o

Start by going right and pushing the boulder north in the hole. Now go back and
up the stairs. Pick up the Ice Heal and follow the path right. Push the boulder
into the hole.

Go down the ladder and push the boulder in the hole.

Go back up the ladder and go left. Go down this ladder and go right and up the
stairs. Pick up the Revive and go past the ladder and down the stairs. Push the
boulder in the hole.

Now go all the way left and up. Go down the ladder and to the right. Push the
boulder in the hole. Go up the ladder and back up the stairs to the right. Go
down this ladder.

Go right and down the stairs. Pick up the Big Pearl and go up the right ladder.
Pick up the Water Stone and go back. This time, go down the left ladder. Go
right and follow the path to a boulder puzzle.

There are two boulders next to each other; push the right of these two squares
up. Now push the left boulder one square down and one square left.

Go around the boulder you just pushed and push the boulder that's two squares
above the hole all the way left. Push the boulder one square above the hole
into the hole.

Now push the only pushable boulder two squares left and one square down, into
the hole.

Backtrack to the ladder on this floor and go north a little and down the ladder
you find there. Go south and pick up the Ultra Ball. Go all the way north and
then east. Go up the ladder, then up the ladder again. Go down and push the
boulder into the hole.

Fall into the hole; you'll end up in water. Take the left stairs and go south.
You're back at the boulder puzzle. Fall into one of the holes and you'll end up
in the water again. Go straight up to find Articuno staring you in the face.

If you want it, save your game.

Articuno is Lv.50 when you attack it. Here's its moveset:

Mist - Prevent stat reduction on your party.
Mind Reader - Next attack performed will not miss if foe is on screen.
Agility - Raise user's Speed by 2 levels.
Ice Beam - 10% chance of freezing the foe.

Articuno is double weak to Rock. Be careful if you decide to use Rock attacks.
If you've got Lapras, Dewgong, or any other Ice-type, bring it out against
Articuno and you're safe. Whittle its HP away until you feel safe to catch it.

That's all for Seafoam Islands. If you brought an Escape Rope or can use Dig or
Teleport, you can use that. Otherwise, get back on the water and go up the
stairs. Stand to the left of the ladder and take a step left. Face up and press
A for a Water Stone.

Go right, north, and right. Go up the ladder and fall in the hole. This time,
take the right side and go up the ladder. Go up another ladder. Go up another
ladder. Leave the cave. Ah, daylight.

If you want, you can Fly away. Otherwise, battle your way to Cinnabar Island.

================
11e. Power Plant
================

To complete this side quest, you will need Surf. Bring lots of Ultra Balls and
someone who can inflict a Special Condition that isn't Poison or Burn.

The earliest you can do this side quest is after you defeat Koga. Fly to the
Pokemon Center near Rock Tunnel and go north. Continue north past the patch of
grass and Surf to the right and south to get there. A single Trainer blocks the
path, but if you go far enough left, you don't even have to fight him.

Pokemaniac Mark
Rhyhorn, Lv.29; Lickitung, Lv.29
Money: 1392

o-----------------------------o Go north and pick up the item ball containing a
| POWER PLANT POKEMON LISTING | Max Potion. Continue on and the path will split
o-----------------------------o in two directions. Go right and follow the path
| Pikachu     (Common)        | for TM17, Protect. Take the top path and get
| Voltorb     (Common, FR)    | an Elixir. Now go back to the main path and go
| Voltorb     (Uncommon, LG)  | south. The path splits again. Go south and
| Magnemite   (Uncommon, FR)  | right to find a Lv.34 Electrode. Go back to the
| Magnemite   (Common, LG)    | fork and head right to yet another fork. Take
| Magneton    (Rare, FR)      | the south path and follow it for TM25, Thunder.
| Magneton    (Uncommon, LG)  | Now continue on and you'll find a room on the
| Electabuzz  (Rare, FR)      | north side with two item balls on either side.
o-----------------------------o The one on the left is a Lv.34 Electrode; the
one on the right is a Thunderstone. Continue on and head south to a small room
that appears to have nothing in it; on further inspection, however, you can get
a hidden item here. Stand in front of the machine on the right and take a step
down. Face up and press A for a Max Elixir. Follow the path to Zapdos, but
don't challenge it just yet; go in front of the center of the machine. Take one
step away, face towards it, and press A for a second Thunderstone.

Okay, _now_ you can challenge Zapdos. Make sure to save first if you want it.

Zapdos is Lv.50 when you attack it. Here's its moveset:

Drill Peck - No added effects.
Detect - Goes first and avoids an attack. May fail if used in succession.
Agility - Raise user's Speed by 2 levels.
Thunder Wave - Paralyze a foe.

There are no Electric-type moves for you to worry about, but Drill Peck's
pretty strong. Golem or Rhydon would be perfect for this battle; resistance to
its only damaging attack and immunity to Thunder Wave. You can also use Rock
Blast/Throw/Slide to pick on weakness and inflict damage. If you can put it to
sleep, do so and weaken it with attacks Zapdos resists. When its HP are too low
for you to attack it any more without it dying, chuck Ultra Balls. Put it back
to sleep if it wakes up. It shouldn't take too much more than that.

Exit via the door on the left. That's all for the Power Plant.

==================
11f. Cerulean Cave
==================

To complete this dungeon, you will need Surf. To get all the items, you'll need
Rock Smash as well. Bring lots of Ultra Balls and someone that can inflict a
Special Condition other than Poison or Burn. You can't come in here until
you've given Celio the Sapphire. See section 12e.

If you can enter, Fly to Cerulean City and head north to Nugget Bridge. Surf
south and around to find the cave. Don't enter just yet; a wimpy and lonesome
girl is a bit to the left.

Lass Crissy
Paras, Lv.31 (x2); Parasect, Lv.31
Money: 496

Told you. Go back and enter the toughest dungeon in Kanto.

o-------------------------------o   Since you've met the requirements for going
| CERULEAN CAVE POKEMON LISTING |   in this cave, you shouldn't have any real
o-------------------------------o   trouble defeating the Pokemon here. This
|  Magneton      (Common)       |   cave is home to the highest-level Pokemon
|  Primeape      (Common)       |   anywhere (don't get too glad, it's ~40-70),
|  Parasect      (Common)       |   and it'll have to be your new training
|  Machoke       (Common)       |   ground if you can't defeat the Elite Four.
|  Ditto         (Common)       |
|  Golbat        (Common)       |   Ready? Start by going up and Surfing. If
|  Kadabra       (Common)       |   you have Rock Smash, go up this ladder and
|  Wobbuffet     (Common)       |   follow the path. Break the two rocks for a
|  Electrode     (Rare)         |   Full Restore. Return to the water and Surf.
o-------------------------------o
Continue on and go south. Get the Full Restore. Go left and past the ladder and
get the Nugget. Now go down. If you have Rock Smash, go up the ladder. Break
the rock and get yourself a PP Up.

Then go right and follow the path and find a Max Elixir. If you have Rock
Smash, go up the ladder that's a bit south of the item you just got and break
the rock. Claim your Ultra Ball and go back to the ladder. Go around the bend
and up the ladder that's on a platform.

There are two paths you can take. Both lead downward at first, but don't take
the one on the far left. No items are there and it's just a waste of time.
Instead, take the path closest to the ladder and follow this path to another
ladder. Go down this one and the one that's in the next room.

Follow the path right and pick up the Max Revive. Keep going and get the Ultra
Ball. When you reach the water, Surf a bit and you'll find... Mewtwo? What it's
doing here, no one really knows, but hey. It's here, it's wild, and it's hard.

To catch. :o

Mewtwo is Lv.70 when you attack it. Here's its moveset:

Psychic - 10% chance to lower foe's Special Defense by 1 level.
Swift - Never misses as long as the foe is on screen.
Recover - Restore 50% of user's maximum HP.
Safeguard - Prevent Special Conditions + confusion on your party for 5 turns.

Mewtwo's Special Attack is _very_ high, and you'll likely be killed in one shot
by Psychic if you're at low levels. Swift isn't anything to worry about. If you
have someone that knows Taunt, continually use that (it wears off after two
turns) to prevent it from using Safeguard and Recover. A Dark-type will work
wonders here; immunity to its only painful attack and the ability to brush off
Swift. If you don't have one, you can only rely on your own strengths - the
only types that resists Psychic are Psychic and Steel. The only Psychic/Steel
Pokemon are Jirachi and Beldum's line, and you have to trade them in from Ruby
& Sapphire .

That's all for Cerulean Cave.

==========================
11g. Elite Four, Round Two
==========================

This can first be done after completing Rocket Warehouse.

You'll notice that after getting the National Pokedex, you are no longer able
to rematch them because Lorelei has gone somewhere. After reuniting with Celio
on One Island, you are given the Rainbow Pass, which lets you travel to Four
Island, Lorelei's place of birth. After helping Lorelei beat up some Team
Rocket thugs and defeat them at Rocket Warehouse on Five Island, she will
return to Indigo Plateau in Kanto.

Each member of the Elite Four (Gary, too) has raised each of their Pokemon 10+
levels, and they've even gone so far as to evolve or replace a few. If you
thought they were hard before, just try them now.

Not everyone has Sitrus Berries, though. Some items have been changed.

==========================
11g1. Elite Four - Lorelei
==========================

Lorelei's Pokemon:

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|  Dewgong   |  64 | Piloswine  |  63 |  Cloyster  |  63 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Jynx    |  66 |   Lapras   |  66 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Money: 6600
Full Restores: 2

o---------o  Moveset: Double Team, Signal Beam, Surf, Ice Beam
| Dewgong |     Type: Water/Ice
o---------o  Ability: Thick Fat (Fire and Ice damage halved)

Signal Beam is a fairly strong Bug-type attack (second most powerful, actually,
but don't let that fool you. Its power is only 75) that can confuse your
Pokemon. Surf and Ice Beam are still here, and they still hurt. Double Team is
the real problem. Evasion is incredibly annoying. If you find that you're not
getting any damage in, try using Shock Wave to pick on Dewgong's weakness and
get around those Double Teams.

o-----------o  Moveset: Earthquake, Blizzard, Rock Slide, Double-Edge
| Piloswine |     Type: Ice/Ground
o-----------o  Ability: Oblivious (Prevents attraction)

Meet Slowbro's replacement. Piloswine is Ice/Ground in type, and rounds out
Lorelei's Ice-type squad nicely, considering she can't really use Articuno. At
any rate, Piloswine is still slow like Slowbro, but it's pretty strong. And,
like most strong Pokemon, it likes to use strong attacks. Lorelei's Piloswine
is the only one of her Pokemon that knows Blizzard instead of Ice Beam.
Blizzard is less accurate than Fire Blast, but it's just as powerful, and it
can also freeze. Rock Slide is for those Fire-types, as is the even more
powerful Earthquake. Disability is the key here. Try to drop Piloswine's Attack
or raise your own Defense. Putting it to sleep does fine as well.

o----------o  Moveset: Ice Beam, Rain Dance, Supersonic, Surf
| Cloyster |     Type: Water/Ice
o----------o  Ability: Shell Armor (Prevents critical hits)

Rain Dance begs Thunder. Any Electric-type sporting this move will be enough.
If you're lacking the move Thunder (or an Electric-type), then use a Pokemon
with high Special Defense to take hits.

o------o  Moveset: Ice Beam, Lovely Kiss, Psychic, Attract
| Jynx |     Type: Ice/Psychic
o------o  Ability: Oblivious (Prevents attraction)

Jynx is female, so keep the men at bay. The strategy here isn't too different
than last time. Use the Poke Flute to wake yourself up from Lovely Kiss. It's
somewhat inaccurate, and you can use the turn she may waste to your advantage.

o--------o  Moveset: Ice Beam, Surf, Thunder, Psychic
| Lapras |     Type: Water/Ice
o--------o  Ability: Water Absorb (Healed by Water-type attacks)

If you have a Pokemon with Toxic, use that. Lapras still has loads of HP, and
the increasing damage will certainly help. Lapras is capable of inflicting
super-effective damage to half the types in the game, so be careful about what
you send out. Even if you get one of the types that gets normal damage, Surf
and Ice Beam will still hurt because of STAB.

Once you defeat Lorelei, move on to the next room.

========================
11g2. Elite Four - Bruno
========================

Bruno's Pokemon:

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|  Steelix   |  65 |  Steelix   |  66 | Hitmonchan |  65 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
| Hitmonlee  |  65 |  Machamp   |  68 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o


Full Restores: 2
Money: 6800

o------------o  Moveset: Rock Tomb, Iron Tail, Earthquake, Crunch
| Steelix 65 |     Type: Steel/Ground
o------------o  Ability: Rock Head (No recoil damage)

Since Onix has evolved, it has removed its double weakness to Water. Still,
Water is the way to go here. If your Fire-types fail to kill it, Earthquake and
Rock Tomb will end their lives quickly.

o------------o  Moveset: Crunch, Iron Tail, Dragonbreath, Earthquake
| Steelix 66 |     Type: Steel/Ground
o------------o  Ability: Rock Head (No recoil damage)

This Steelix has Dragonbreath (which can paralyze you) over Rock Tomb, but the
strategy's no different. Use the same Water-type you used before.

o------------o  Moveset: Sky Uppercut, Counter, Rock Slide, Mach Punch
| Hitmonchan |     Type: Fighting
o------------o  Ability: Keen Eye (Prevents accuracy loss)

Hitmonchan's back with a slight change in his moveset. Other than the expected
increase in stats, nothing else is different. Treat him like you did the first
time around.

o-----------o  Moveset: Rock Slide, Mega Kick, Earthquake, Foresight
| Hitmonlee |     Type: Fighting
o-----------o  Ability: Limber (Prevents paralysis)

Hitmonlee has undergone a few changes. Over Facade is Earthquake, a much more
reliable attack that still won't hit Ghost-types, even with Foresight. With
Rock Slide at his disposal, Hitmonlee isn't totally helpless against Ghosts,
and helps with his weakness to Flying. Be careful. Hitmonlee has high Attack
power to back up his strong moves.

o---------o  Moveset: Rock Slide, Cross Chop, Brick Break, Earthquake
| Machamp |     Type: Fighting
o---------o  Ability: Guts (Attack doubles if Poisoned, Burned, or Paralyzed)

Bruno's Machamp has greatly improved; the only attack he retains is Cross Chop.
Your best bet here would be a Ghost-type to negate 75% of Machamp's attacks. If
you don't have one, Reflect will certainly come in handy to cut down all the
physical damage you'll be taking. If you have a Psychic-type, be cautious. Most
Psychic-types have low Defense, which means they'll be sure to get OHKOed.


Once you defeat Bruno, move on to the next room.

=========================
11g3. Elite Four - Agatha
=========================

Agatha's Pokemon:

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|   Gengar   |  66 | Misdreavus |  65 |   Crobat   |  66 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|   Arbok    |  68 |   Gengar   |  70 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Full Restores: 2
Money: 7000

o-----------o  Moveset: Shadow Ball, Confuse Ray, Hypnosis, Psychic
| Gengar 66 |     Type: Ghost/Poison
o-----------o  Ability: Levitate (Immune to Ground-type damage)

Agatha has moved up from an annoy strategy to a still-sucky Gengar. Double Team
is gone, and she now has Confuse Ray and Hypnosis in its place. Dream Eater's
missing, thankfully. Psychic-type Pokemon get destroyed by Shadow Ball. Make
sure your [Psychic-type] Pokemon is a high level to OHKO Gengar and the rest of
Agatha's Pokemon.

o------------o  Moveset: Thunderbolt, Attract, Shadow Ball, Psychic
| Misdreavus |     Type: Ghost
o------------o  Ability: Levitate (Immune to Ground-type damage)

Three Gengar was way too much for Agatha, so she replaced Haunter with
Misdreavus, Johto's only Ghost (and was, back then, the only pure Ghost-type).
One thing to note is Agatha's Misdreavus is _male_, so keep the ladies out.
Missy doesn't evolve into or from anything, and that usually means it's weak.
It shouldn't take much to send this Pokemon back to its Poke Ball.

o--------o  Moveset: Air Cutter, Sludge Bomb, Shadow Ball, Confuse Ray
| Crobat |     Type: Ghost
o--------o  Ability: Inner Focus (Prevents flinching)

Agatha's Golbat has evolved into Crobat, a much faster and stronger Pokemon,
and is no longer a joke. Crobat is one of the fastest Pokemon around, and has
decent Attack power to take advantage of. Sludge Bomb is the most powerful
Poison technique the series has to offer, and it comes with a 30% poison rate.
What you want here is your Pokemon with the highest Defense. While Shadow Ball
will rip apart your Psychic-types, it usually won't be needed because Sludge
Bomb will do more damage anyway. Try using Ice or Electric.

o-------o  Moveset: Double Team, Sludge Bomb, Earthquake, Giga Drain
| Arbok |     Type: Poison
o-------o  Ability: Intimidate (Active Pokemon's ATK-1 upon entry)

It seems like everyone and their dog knows Double Team these days. There are no
Ground- or Psychic-type Swift attacks, so you're on your own as far as the
evasion goes. You should only worry about Giga Drain if you're Rock/Ground.
Earthquake is for your Poison-types, so keep that in mind. Psychic is still the
way to go.

o-----------o  Moveset: Sludge Bomb, Shadow Ball, Thunderbolt, Psychic
| Gengar 70 |     Type: Ghost/Poison
o-----------o  Ability: Levitate (Immune to Ground-type damage)

The unreliable-but-deadly Hypnosis and Nightmare have been replaced with
Thunderbolt and Psychic, turning this Gengar into a mixed sweeper of sorts.
Gengar has better Special Attack than Attack, so you should be more worried
about the latter two moves. You can either choose to bring out Gengar's only
weakness (Psychic), or just use powerful attacks. Either one works.

Once you defeat Agatha, move on to the next room.

========================
11g4. Elite Four - Lance
========================

Lance's Pokemon:

o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |    Name    | Lvl |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
|  Gyarados  |  68 | Aerodactyl |  70 | Dragonite  |  66 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o------------o-----o
| Dragonite  |  72 |  Kingdra   |  66 |
o------------o-----o------------o-----o

Full Restores: 2
Money: 7200

o----------o  Moveset: Thunder Wave, Earthquake, Dragon Dance, Hyper Beam
| Gyarados |     Type: Water/Flying
o----------o  Ability: Intimidate (Active Pokemon's ATK-1 upon entry)

Take a look at that set, will ya? Simply amazing what one can do if one puts
one's mind to it. Gyarados' plan is simple. Immobilize with Thunder Wave, then
raise Attack and Speed each by 1 with a single Dragon Dance. Once it's been
powered up enough, Gyarados is free to ruin your team via Earthquake
(especially helpful for those Electric-types) and Hyper Beam.

Of course, by the time Lance can even think about setting this destruction up,
Gyarados will be dead to the Electric-type attack you better have just used.

o------------o  Moveset: Earthquake, Aerial Ace, Ancientpower, Hyper Beam
| Aerodactyl |     Type: Rock/Flying
o------------o  Ability: Rock Head (No recoil damage)

Wing Attack has been replaced with Aerial Ace, which never misses. The useless
Scary Face was dropped for a much better Earthquake, which not only kills your
Electric-types, but takes advantage of Aerodactyl's Attack. Think Crobat, only
better. You can still Water-type him to death. Don't forget about the boost
from Ancientpower.

o--------------o  Moveset: Flamethrower, Dragon Claw, Hyper Beam, Earthquake
| Dragonite 66 |     Type: Dragon/Flying
o--------------o  Ability: Inner Focus (Prevents flinching)

Ice Beam, thanks for playing.

o--------------o  Moveset: Outrage, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, Hyper Beam
| Dragonite 72 |     Type: Dragon/Flying
o--------------o  Ability: Inner Focus (Prevents flinching)

See previous Dragonite strategy. It holds a Persim Berry.

o---------o  Moveset: Ice Beam, Dragon Dance, Hyper Beam, Surf
| Kingdra |     Type: Water/Dragon
o---------o  Ability: Swift Swim (Speed increase while raining)

The lack of Dragon-types shows. Lance's would-be-third Dragonite has been
replaced with Seadra's new Johto evolution, Kingdra. It is Water/Dragon in
type, which eliminates all weaknesses except Dragon, and that's what Ice Beam's
there for. The only thing you need to worry about is Dragon Dance's Speed
boost. If Kingdra gets a lot of them in, it can spell disaster for your team,
especially if he decides to use Hyper Beam, which takes care of any Water- or
Ice-types you throw at him. Just continue using your most powerful attacks.

Once you defeat Lance, move on to the next room.

Full Restores: 4
Money: 7500

o-----------o  Moveset: Megahorn, Rock Tomb, Counter, Earthquake
| Heracross |     Type: Bug/Fighting
o-----------o  Ability: Swarm (Bug damage x1.5 when HP drop below 1/3)

Heracross is double weak to Flying. Make sure that if you decide to pick on it,
you're sure you'll kill it. Otherwise, you die from Counter. Megahorn used to
be only learned by Heracross, and it's the strongest Bug-type move there is.
Psychic-types get wasted, so be sure you can deliver that OHKO.

o----------o  Moveset: Shadow Ball, Calm Mind, Psychic, Reflect
| Alakazam |     Type: Psychic
o----------o  Ability: Synchronize (Mirrors BRN, PAR, and PSN on the foe)

Someone must have knocked some sense into Gary, because Calm Mind is back. 'Zam
now sports Shadow Ball and Reflect, which will help it against Ghost-types.
Reflect shouldn't be too much of a hinder, though. A couple of strong non-
Fighting attacks should do the job.

o-----------o  Moveset: Aerial Ace, Earthquake, Crunch, Thunderbolt
| Tyranitar |     Type: Rock/Dark
o-----------o  Ability: Sand Stream (Sandstorm begins and lasts forever)

Once Tyranitar comes into play, you need to change the weather as soon as you
can. The Sandstorm effect from his Ability will never end as long as no other
weather moves are used, and it's probable that the majority of your team isn't
part Rock, Ground, or Steel. If it is, you need a team change. Tyranitar is
Rock/Dark in type, and is therefore double weak to Fighting. Aerial Ace helps
out with that. Thunderbolt is for Water-types.

o----------o  Moveset: Earthquake, Dragon Dance, Hydro Pump, Hyper Beam
| Gyarados |     Type: Water/Flying
o----------o  Ability: Intimidate (Active Pokemon's ATK-1 upon entry)

Similar strategy to Lance, but keeps Hydro Pump. After a couple Dragon Dances,
Earthquake will do _far_ more damage than Hydro Pump to your Fire-types, so it
really isn't needed. Of course, if you're stupid enough to put a Fire-type up
against any Gyarados, you deserve to lose.

Stop reading and Thunderbolt him.

o-----------o  Moveset: Sleep Powder, Giga Drain, Light Screen, Psychic
| Exeggutor |     Type: Grass/Psychic
o-----------o  Ability: Chlorophyll (Speed increase while sunny)

While Exeggutor may be double weak to Bug, it's a very uncommon type. It's not
likely that you'll have Signal Beam, Silver Wind, or Megahorn, but don't worry

about it too much. Don't forget your handy-dandy Poke Flute for the sleep move,
and see what you can do about throwing a Flying-type in his face to pick on the
weakness and get around Light Screen and Giga Drain.

o----------o  Moveset: Extremespeed, Iron Tail, Overheat, Aerial Ace
| Arcanine |     Type: Fire
o----------o  Ability: Intimidate (Active Pokemon's ATK-1 upon entry)

A physical attacking Arcanine? No thanks. Overheat's deadly the first time it's
used, but don't be intimidated (oops, too late (bad joke)) by the sheer
destruction it causes. Gary's too stupid to switch out after effectively
destroying his only real attack, so just wait until those are gone. One thing
to mention is Extremespeed. It's only got 5 PP, and it has 80 power. What's so
special about that? Nothing, except the fact that the user always goes first.
It's capable of delivering sneak KOs, destroying your Pokemon from even half
their max HP without you getting a chance to counter. Gary's Arcanine loves to
do Extremespeed, and he'll waste the PP for it real quick.

o-----------o  Moveset: Aerial Ace, Fire Blast, Dragon Claw, Earthquake
| Charizard |     Type: Fire/Flying
o-----------o  Ability: Blaze (Fire damage x1.5 when HP drop below 1/3)

Dragon Claw doesn't really mean much on Charizard. I suppose it could be used
as a Special technique if Fire Blast runs out of PP (which still is really the
only threat here). Earthquake, like always, murders Electric-types. A Rain
Dance/Thunder combo would work nicely here. Did you challenge Moltres? If so,
you could employ a similar method here, since Charizard and Moltres share the
same type. Just nix the part about catching the thing.

o----------o  Moveset: Earthquake, Solarbeam, Sludge Bomb, Sunny Day
| Venusaur |     Type: Grass/Poison
o----------o  Ability: Overgrow (Grass damage x1.5 when HP drop below 1/3)

Gary will avoid using Sunny Day like a straight man avoids a gay bar. Without
it, though, you know when Solarbeam's coming. It's a bit easier that way.
Earthquake rapes your Fire-types, and Sludge Bomb is just a powerful STAB
attack. If Gary _does_ use Sunny Day, switch in to your Fire-type that should
be faster than Venusaur and roast the sucker.

o-----------o  Moveset: Rain Dance, Ice Beam, Hydro Pump, Earthquake
| Blastoise |     Type: Water
o-----------o  Ability: Torrent (Water damage x1.5 when HP drop below 1/3)

Blastoise now comes with the ability to handle Electric-types. In a way, you
can treat Gary's Blastoise like Lorelei's new Cloyster. Thunder doesn't have
the greatest accuracy in the world, but it becomes perfect while raining. While
this seems tempting, you've gotta be careful because Earthquake will put the
hurt on all Electric-types except Zapdos, and Ice Beam's for that. It holds a
Sitrus Berry.

=================
12. Sevii Islands
=================

This can first be done after defeating Blaine.

Bill will ask if you want to come to a place called One Island that isn't even
on your map. Say yes, and you'll be whisked away.

Before you go, make sure your pokemon know Surf, Cut, and Strength.

Note that once you leave, you cannot come back for a while, so stock up!

===============================================
12a. One Island - Friends Gather at Knot Island
===============================================

Bill will drag you to the Pokemon Net Center where his buddy, Celio, is waiting
for him. After introductions are done, Celio will explain that he can't get his
PC system and Bill's PC system to link up (this means that you can't use the PC
until they get it done). Bill will ask you to take a Meteorite to this other
guy on Two Island. Celio will then give you an extra page to your Town Map to
include One, Two, and Three Islands and a Tri-Pass to let you travel between
the three (if you never got the Town Map, you'll get it now, and it'll already
have the extra page).

We've got things to do, though, before setting sail for Two Island. Go south
and Surf around the ferry house to get to Treasure Beach. Only one Trainer
here, unfortunately, and wild battles aren't the greatest, but meh.

The guy here says that he comes here every so often because items get washed up
on the beach. I don't know how often the items change, but you can use the
Itemfinder to help you find various items. I've found Pearls, Stardusts, and
Ultra Balls here. All of these can be sold for cash, but don't come here
expecting to get rich off the items. There's a _much_ better spot for that.

That's all for this section. Fly back to One Island and leave east to Kindle
Road. Surf east and then north.

Inside the cave is the Ember Spa, where you can use the hot springs to rest
(Pokemon Center). If you're weary, just enter the middle of the hot springs to
be fully restored. Talk to the old man on the north side standing in between
the waterfalls for HM06, Rock Smash. This is what you need to break all those
rocks you saw earlier in the game. Sometimes Pokemon will emerge from under the
rocks that you smash, but they're weak. Just run. Go back and break the three
vertical rocks and get an Ether. Keep going south and go up the stairs so
you're on the plateau. Follow this path and break the two rocks for a Carbos.

A bit more and we finally arrive at our destination, Mt. Ember. Yay, FPV.

===============
12a1. Mt. Ember
===============

The man you see is a Move Tutor who will teach Explosion to a lucky Pokemon.

Go to the right and you'll find two Rocket Grunts. If you've defeated the Elite
Four and have the National Pokedex, they'll battle you. Otherwise, they just
stand there. Either way, ignore them for now.

Use Strength and push the first rock only until you can pass and push the one
to its left. Go on and battle the Trainer.

Go up the stairs and to the right. Follow this path for a Dire Hit. Then come
back to the stairs and go left instead to get jumped.

PKMN Ranger Logan
Exeggcute, Lv.37; Exeggutor, Lv.37

There's a hidden Ultra Ball on the last square in that small alcove by Logan.

After that, follow the very long, boring, Pokemon-filled path through Mt.
Ember, and you'll emerge on the other side. Go up the stairs and follow a path
left if you want an Ultra Ball. If you want a Fire Stone, first break the rock
that's next to the boulder. Then go down and push the boulder, break the rock,
then push the boulders out of the way. Go to the main area and up the stairs.

Push the right boulder north, and then the one next to it to the left. The rest
is just pushing them out of the way. Oh, look, it's Moltres! It's been moved
from its previous home in Victory Road, but it's still just as cool and just as
hard to catch... bleh. If you want to capture it, be sure to save beforehand.

Moltres is Lv.50 when you attack it. Here's its moveset:

Endure - Survive a would-be-fatal attack with 1 HP.
Fire Spin - Trap the foe for 2-5 turns.
Agility - Raise user's Speed by 2 levels.
Flamethrower - 10% chance of burning the foe.

You'll have to guess, but try to power hit it when it uses Endure. It might be
helpful to use your power attack three or four turns after it last uses Endure,
because Endure reduces in accuracy if used consecutively, and Moltres isn't
stupid enough to use it twice in a row. If you can successfully trigger Endure,
it'll be at 1 HP, which is ideal for capturing a legendary. Then slap a Special
Condition other than Poison on it and start throwing anything but a Master
Ball.

I did that (I chose Sleep), and all it took was one _Great_ Ball. After you
catch or kill Moltres, that's the end unless you defeated the Elite Four. If
you did, leave Mt. Ember, re-enter, and challenge the Grunts. Otherwise, Fly
back to One Island and take the ferry to Two Island.

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

The rest of this section is for those who either came back after beating the
Elite Four to whoop on the Grunts, or those who decided to ignore my advice to
ignore these guys and get Moltres first, or whatever.

They will have finally opened up a cave on the side where they've been since
who knows when. They agree to bring any treasure they find back to the
Warehouse which is located somewhere, but one forgets the passwords required to
get in. The other reveals that the first password is "Goldeen need log." As
he's about to reveal the other code, he spots you and shuts his yap. Talk to
each of them to start up a fight.

enemy, unguarded. Yes, let's just listen to them and get out now...

| Slugma    (Common) (later) |
o----------------------------o

You'll come to another rock puzzle. Push the boulder one square right. Go to
its north side and push the boulder down.

When you get to a fork, take the lower path. Push the boulder and go down the
stairs. Follow this all the way down until you get to a room with many walls on
it. On it is Braille. Each wall has three letters of the alphabet written in
Braille (the single characters are the period on top and comma on bottom). If
you wish to learn it, sit there and learn it. Otherwise, go down the stairs. A
long Braille message and a Ruby wait for you. What does it say? Glad you asked.

EVERYTHING                  Now, what all this mumbo-jumbo _means_ is a whole
HAS MEANING                 'nother story altogether. Take the Ruby and go back
EXISTENCE                   to that fork, only this time take the right path.
HAS MEANING                 Push the top boulder to the right so you can push
BEING ALIVE                 the bottom one left and pass downward. Follow this
HAS MEANING                 and ascend the ladders to get out of the cave.
HAVE DREAMS
USE POWER.

Take the Ruby back to Celio. He'll ask you to go find the other gem that pairs
up with the Ruby. He'll take the Tri-Pass from you and give you his own Rainbow
Pass in return. This will let you visit all seven of the Sevii Islands. He'll
also edit your Town Map to include Four Island through Seven Island.

Before you go anywhere else, go to Two Island and purchase a Lemonade. Don't
use it; keep it in your inventory at all times.

=====================================
12b. Two Island - Boon Island for Two
=====================================

The current's way too fast, so you can't fish or Surf in these waters.

If you want a Revive, Cut the tree to the right and follow the path.

In the house to the southeast of the shop is the Pokemon Move Maniac. He'll
reteach your Pokemon's moves they've forgotten while leveling up, but only if
you give him either two Tinymushrooms or one Big Mushroom. Tinymushrooms are
commonly found on wild Paras, but not all the time; Big Mushrooms are a bit
rarer. The easiest way to get them (Paras) is to search in Safari Zone's
Center Area or Area 1. Catching around 10 of them yields 4-5 Tinymushrooms on
average, from my experiences.

Again, The Wierdo has a valuable piece of advice. He suggests you run around in
the B2 level of Mt. Moon, where there are only Paras. Then use Thief to steal
their Tinymushrooms. Remember that if the user of Thief is holding an item, the
foe's item won't be stolen. Also remember to remove the item once it's been
stolen.

Next door is Two Island's Game Corner. Upon entering, a man will freak out
about his daughter, Lostelle, who happens to be missing. He'll ask you to
search Three Island, and a Biker barges in. Turns out he mistook this place for
Three Island, and he goes peacefully on his way. You can't play any games yet,
so there's nothing really to do here except leave... but wait!

Once you arrive here, you'll be able to access Bill's PC. I guess Celio and
Bill got things done. Let's finish our business so we can get back.

If you haven't beaten the Elite Four yet, the cave at Three Isle Port will only
contain a guy who's searching for gold. Otherwise, it'll be a long path.
There's a hidden Nugget in the rock at the end of the path right before the
stairs. Talk to the guy, and he'll give you another Nugget. Sweet, free money.

The patch of grass outside the door near this guy contains only Dunsparce. Go
back to the main area; that's all for this little part.

Heal if you need to and try to go to the northern part of town. These dudes are
being harassed by a bike gang, and you're gonna make something of it. Of
course, you'll have to fight four battles in a row, but hey. They're nothing
special.

| Venomoth   (Common)          |  down, and three steps left. Press A for a
| Drowzee    (Rare)            |  Razz Berry.
| Hypno      (Rare)            |
| Pidgey     (Common)          |  Stand to the left of the tree and go straight
| Pidgeotto  (Uncommon)        |  up until you're one square south of it. Press
| Exeggcute  (Uncommon)        |  A for a hidden Oran Berry.
| Oddish     (Uncommon, FR)    |
| Gloom      (Rare, FR)        |  Cut the tree and go down all the way until
| Psyduck    (Rare, FR)        |  you reach the ledge (don't Cut any trees).
| Bellsprout (Rare, LG)        |  Loop around the trees and stand next to the
| Weepinbell (Common, LG)      |  small, Cuttable one nearest the ledge. Take
| Slowpoke   (Uncommon, LG)    |  one step right and two steps down and press A
o------------------------------o  for a Persim Berry.

Now stand next to the small tree that's above the one nearest the ledge. Take
seven steps up and one left. Press A for a Pinap Berry.

In the northeasternmost corner is a hidden Chesto Berry.

If you want a free Full Heal, jump the ledge here and go left. Then loop around
and continue following this path until you find another tree you can Cut. Stand
next to it, then take five steps right. Face up and press A for an Aspear
Berry.

Go back and Cut the tree. A Max Ether sits in a corner, waiting for you.

There's a tree directly below the Max Ether. Stand below it, then take three
steps down and two steps left. Press A for a Bluk Berry.

Follow the path south and you'll find a rectangle of water. Stand in the lower
left corner and take two steps right. Face up and press A for a Wepear Berry.

From there, take three steps right and one up. Press A for a Cheri Berry.

Go right and go right until you hit some trees. Stand in the corner and take
either one step left and face up or one step up and face left. Either way,
press A for a Nanab Berry.

Continue following the path and you should see a patch of water below you. Surf
across this and Cut all the trees there for a Max Elixir.

Go back to the main path. Stand below the sign and take one step down. Press A
to find a Pecha Berry.

Now just follow the path north to find Lostelle. She's standing there scared
because a Hypno has been, well, scaring her. She spots it coming again, and it
plays Hypno's cry quite freakishly. Then a Lv.30 Hypno jumps you. Catch or kill
it, and she gives you an Iapapa Berry as thanks. You'll both will then be
transported to Lostelle's house back on Two Island. Talk to Lostelle's father
and you'll deliver the Meteorite like Bill asked. He'll reward your valiant
efforts with a Moon Stone.

Fly back to One Island and head to the Pokemon Net Center and Bill will take
you back to Cinnabar. From now on, you can travel to either One, Two, or Three

Island from Vermilion Port, and you can play Pokemon Jump or Dodrio Berry-
Picking on Two Island as long as you're playing with the Wireless Adapter in
your GBA [SP], and you have at least one other person who has completed the
Lostelle quest.

==============================================
12d. Four Island - The Warm, Blue, Floe Island
==============================================

Metal music remix! Happiness...

Upon arriving here, Gary will talk to you. He's on his way out because he's
already received a Pokemon Egg. There's also someone you both know here, and he
invites you to find out who. Let's do that...

But first, we have things to do. If you have Rock Smash, then go up the western
coast and smash the rock and get the Star Piece.

In the Pokemon Center, check the bookshelf for one of Daisy's entries in the
Fame Checker.

Straight north and you'll find the Day-Care. This is similar to the one you
found on Route 5, but they can take two Pokemon instead of one. The money cost
is the same, but if your two Pokemon are in the same Egg Group, they will
produce a baby of the lowest form of the female (unless a parent is Ditto; then
you'll get whichever parent isn't Ditto, unless both parents are Ditto, in
which case you'll get Ditto).

In the house to the right of the Day-Care are two fat guys. The man on the left
is a Move Tutor who will teach a Pokemon the move Body Slam.

Head inside the PokeMart.

o-------------------------o  The old man here is part of Lorelei's section of
|  FOUR ISLAND SHOP LIST  |  the Fame Checker. He'll also reveal that Four
o-------------------------o  Island is Lorelei's home, and you'll be getting
|  Ultra Ball......$1200  |  many entries for her while you're here.
|  Full Restore....$3000  |
|  Max Potion......$2500  |  Enter the house next to the PokeMart. There's a
|  Revive..........$1500  |  guy with stickers who will put a sticker on your
|  Ice Heal.........$250  |  Trainer card if you've got something worthy to
|  Full Heal........$600  |  brag about.
|  Escape Rope......$550  |
|  Max Repel........$700  |
o-------------------------o

To the right of the sticker house is a kid who is part of Lorelei's section of
the Fame Checker. Lorelei's house contains only Poke Dolls. Go to the side of
it and Surf north to find a Stardust. Then enter Icefall Cave.

Note: From now on, when you encounter a Pokemon from Johto, it will be at an
extremely low level; your weakest team member will have trouble not delivering
OHKOs left and right.

o------------------------------o  So _this_ is where all those Ice-types have
| ICEFALL CAVE POKEMON LISTING |  been hiding...
o------------------------------o
| Zubat      (Uncommon)        |  Surf and enter the cave. Step over the ice.
| Golbat     (Common)          |  It will crack. Step on it again and you'll
| Swinub     (Uncommon)        |  fall. This is something we want to avoid
| Seel       (Common)          |  (most of the time). Stand on the right side
| Dewgong    (Rare)            |  and step over the ice. Pick up the Ultra Ball
| Lapras     (Rare)            |  and advance using the uncracked ice.
| Shellder   (Uncommon, FR)    |
| Staryu     (Uncommon, LG)    |  You'll see two choices of tiles to step on.
| Sneasel    (Rare, LG)        |  Fall through the top ice. Go up the ladder,
| Delibird   (Rare, FR)        |  then fall through the top ice tile. Go down
o------------------------------o  and right to get the Nevermeltice. Go back to
the ladder and ascend it. This time, fall down the bottom hole. You'll slide on
the ice until you hit a wall, so go up, right, down, left, then down to get off
the ice. Go around the ladder and get the Full Restore. Go up the ladder and
pick up HM07, Waterfall. Jump the ledge and go out the door.

You'll need to teach someone how to use Waterfall. If none of your Pokemon can
learn it, catch someone here (Seel, Dewgong, or Lapras) or drag someone from
your Box. Go up the waterfall and down the stairs.

The door is right above you! Don't jump the ledge! Go up a bit and you'll find
Lorelei, who is fending off some poachers. She'll leave you to handle one,
while she takes on the other two.

After the fight, Lorelei threatens to freeze them unless they divulge where
they've been holding the Pokemon they steal. He tries to hold out, but gives in
at the last second when Lorelei's Lapras begins to use Ice Beam on him ^_^

Turns out that they're all in the Rocket Warehouse on Five Island.

We still need that second password to get in, though. Skip Five Island for now.

=================================================
12e. Five Island - Chrono Island: Where Time Goes
=================================================

If you don't have the second password for the Rocket Warehouse, leave!

Five Island is a dull, boring place. Make sure you have five Pokemon in your
party and go along the west coast. Surf and maneuver your way west when you get
to the Water Labyrinth. You'll end up on a spot of land with an old guy and a
battle.

PKMN Breeder Alize
Pikachu, Lv.48; Clefairy, Lv.48; Marill, Lv.48

The guy will give you a Togepi egg if your lead Pokemon likes you.

If you're hard up for cash, use the VS Seeker when Gillian, Destin, Celina, and
Jacki are all on the same screen to use it to its full potential. Ten thousand

Enter Selphy's house and check the bookshelf for Blaine's last entry in the

Go right, then down to get a Lax Incense. Once at the entrance, go right, then

Go right, up, down.

From here, go down, right, right for a Max Revive.

From Laura's room, go down, right, left. Then go down, then right. Heal and go
up. Selphy's here, and she must think you're going to rape her or something...
she challenges you straight away.

Lady Selphy
Persian, Lv.49 (x2)
Money: 9800

She'll take you back to her house and reward you with the front door in your
face, that ungrateful wench. Oh well. Run back through Lost Cave and go back to
Selphy's room and steal her Silk Scarf.

If you re-enter Selphy's house, she'll ask you to show her a random Pokemon.
Any Pokemon listed as 'seen' in your Pokedex is fair game, which means if you
import a Groudon from your Ruby into LeafGreen, Selphy might ask to see one
(thanks to Seth Weissman for this additional information). You're also timed. I
don't know how long you get, but if you waste too much time, you won't be
rewarded. Show her what she wants to see in order to get one of the following:

       Luxury Ball - Pearl - Big Pearl - Stardust - Star Piece - Nugget

Thanks to The Wierdo for additional items.

Fly back to Five Island. This time, leave east to Five Isle Meadow.

Surf straight down from there and follow the path. Stand next to the man and
examine the grave. If you take the Lemonade I told you to never use and place
it next to the grave, he'll give you TM42, Facade. The item ball near him
contains a Metal Coat, necessary for evolving your Onix or Scyther. Now
backtrack all the way to Milo and return to the mainland. Surf when you get the
chance and go around the left side for a PP Up. Then go back to the mainland.

======================
12e1. Rocket Warehouse
======================

The monkey cage...

The direction-forcers are back. They switch directions on you mid-path, so it
can get quite confusing, but take it easy. Take the only one you can take
(middle top right). Step on the left arrow. Pick up the Up-Grade and fight!

Team Rocket Grunt (Female style, I love it)
Houndour, Lv.49 (x2)

Step on the left arrow and head straight up.

Team Rocket Grunt
Machop, Lv.48 (x2); Machoke, Lv.48

There are three arrows pointing left. Step on the bottom of these. Follow the
path for a Pearl, then make your way back to the fight you just did. Step on
the arrow pointing down. Go left for a Big Pearl. Once again, go back to the
fight you just did and step on the middle arrow. Maneuver around the arrows
and go northeast, around the previous Grunt. Go up and claim TM36, Sludge Bomb.
Now go south and fight.

Now go east and north a bit against the new enemy.

Money: 1728

After defeating her, she'll reverse one of the direction-forcers so if you
leave, you can jump right back to this point. She says that the Admin that lies
just past her far outranks her as far as Trainers go, and you'd do well to
leave and come back when you're refreshed and restored. Advance when ready.

Team Rocket Admin
Golbat, Lv.53; Weezing, Lv.54; Houndoom, Lv.55
Money: 1760

He'll see the Earthbadge and realize that the rumors about Team Rocket being
disbanded were true. He'll vow to find Giovanni and resurrect Team Rocket, then
he and all the monkeys will disperse. That just leaves one guy left; the guy
who stole your Sapphire. It's pain time!

Scientist Gideon
Voltorb, Lv.46; Porygon, Lv.46; Electrode, Lv.46; Magnemite, Lv.46; Magneton,

Money: 2208

He'll fork over the Sapphire and let you go on your way. Finally, we're in
possession of the other gem. Take the ferry to One Island and talk to Celio; he
will install the Sapphire into the Network Machine.

Congratulations! You can now trade with Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire!

Talk to Celio until he says three different things about Bill; each is an entry
in Bill's section of the Fame Checker, and you should have all six after you
get these three.

Cerulean Cave is now unlocked; have at it.

You can also challenge the Elite Four and their brand-new teams any time you
like. Lorelei's lowest level Pokemon is Lv.64, so be prepared.

When you get time, revisit Rocket Warehouse and talk to Gideon for Giovanni's
final entry in the Fame Checker.

Ah, Olivine City. I miss Jasmine - she's sexy, too.

Enter the Pokemon Center and Gary will talk to you. He'll inquire how your
Pokedex is doing, as always. He'll note how there's no way to fill up the
Pokedex, and there must be a way to fill it with Pokemon from far away...

He decides to call it quits and heads for home.

In the PokeMart, the old lady is part of Agatha's section of the Fame Checker.

The item behind the boulders is a Full Restore. Go back and see that the path
splits in two. On the left side is an HP Up that some boulders are guarding.

You will wind up at a door if you go left. You can't open it, but there's a
Braille inscription on it. It reads:

CUT

Simple, huh? Use Cut and enter Dotted Hole.

The only Pokemon in this cave is Zubat!

Fall down the hole and you'll see four holes. Like Lost Cave before it, you'll
wind up at the beginning if you take the wrong path. The Braille in the center
is "UP," so take the top hole.

Braille says "LEFT." Guess which hole you take? Left.

Braille in this room says "RIGHT." Do what it says and take the right hole.

And we come to a room that says "DOWN." Go down. You'll end up in a room with
the Sapphire and a long Braille message that reads:

LET THE TWO
GLITTERING
STONES
ONE IS RED
ONE IS BLUE
CONNECT THE
PAST.
TWO FRIENDS
SHARING
POWER OPEN
A WINDOW TO
A NEW WORLD
THAT GLOWS.
THE NEXT
WORLD WAITS
FOR YOU.

Examine the Sapphire and a Rocket Scientist will drop from above and take it.
He'll tell you the other password to the Rocket Warehouse: "Yes, nah, Chansey."

Palindromes. <3

That's all for Six Island. Let's chase us some monkeys. To Five Island!

============================================
12g. Seven Island - Quest Island of Infinity
============================================

This is the last of the Sevii Islands. The first thing you'll see is a house.
Inside is a lady who says something similar to the e-Reader man in Ruby &
Sapphire. What's she have to do with the e-Reader?

North of here is the Trainer Tower, but that's covered in section 13.

On the bridge south of town is a Move Tutor who will teach Swords Dance. Make
sure your Pokemon know Rock Smash and Strength and keep going south to reach
Canyon Entrance.

o--------------------------------o

Go around the four boulders at the beginning. Activate Strength and push the
boulder in the middle straight up. Next, loop around and push one of the
boulders next to the indent so it's in the middle under the first boulder you
just pushed. Push this boulder up and all the way to one side so it falls in an
indent. Repeat this process with the boulder across from the second one you
pushed. Now go in between the four boulders at the entrance and push the bottom
two off to the side. Jump the ledge and push those two up into the indents. Now
push one of the two remaining boulders to the middle, up, and into a hole; do
the same with the final one. You'll hear a rumble sound - leave the cave.

If you've got Rock Smash, you can skip this next battle.

You'll wind up at the Tanoby Ruins after this. There are seven different
islands that each house up to five different letters of Unown, including two
that contain the brand new Unown, ! and ?. Starting from the far left side:

That's all for Seven Island. If you did the islands in order (excepting Five
and Six), you can do the Trainer Tower if you haven't done it already, go
rechallenge the Elite Four again (new Pokemon, higher levels, new movesets),
fill the Pokedex, or catch Mewtwo if you haven't already.

================
13. Sevii Extras
================

These are all side quests of some sort that are based in the Sevii Islands.

===========================
13a. Two Island Game Corner
===========================

You can play games here only if you have at least two people who have completed
the Lostelle quest (section 12b for more info), and those two people _must_
have the Wireless Adapter connected.

There are only two games here for you to play; Pokemon Jump and Dodrio Berry-
Picking. In Pokemon Jump, each player selects a Pokemon that qualifies and
jumps a vine rope connected by two Venusaur. First person to trip up loses.

What Pokemon qualify? Anything that is 28 inches or less (2'4") and can
actually jump easily (so nothing that can't jump (Diglett) or swims (Seel)).

The bad part is that how well you do depends on everyone else. If they suck, so
will you.

To my dismay, I have found out that you need three people to play Dodrio Berry-
Picking. Since I do not have two other people to play this with, I cannot write
a section on it. I appeal to you, the reader, for assistance.

======================
13b. Heracross Fangirl
======================

She's on Water Path just north of Six Island's mainland... she wants you to
show her any Heracross that you catch so she can measure them. Every time you
beat your current length (show her a bigger Heracross than last time), you will
receive a Nest Ball. There is no way to figure out Heracross' length. Just take
all your Heracross to her and she'll measure each one.

==================
13c. Trainer Tower
==================

Found north of Seven Island, the Trainer Tower is a disappointing Battle Tower.

But first we have to get there! You'll need Surf (not a problem, right?).

o--------------------------o The Trainer Tower is a bit different from the
| TRAINER TOWER SHOP LIST  | Battle Tower that you may or may not be familiar
o--------------------------o with. In the old Battle Tower, you would fight a
|  Ultra Ball.......$1200  | series of seven consecutive battles, each fight
|  Great Ball........$600  | (sometimes) being more difficult than the last,
|  Full Restore.....$3000  | and your Pokemon would be healed after each fight.
|  Max Potion.......$2500  | If you defeat the seven Trainers, you would be
|  Hyper Potion.....$1200  | rewarded with an item that you usually couldn't
|  Revive...........$1500  | find anywhere else. You would then continue to
|  Full Heal.........$600  | battle Trainers, seven at a time, until you lost,
|  Escape Rope.......$550  | with the prizes getting better after a while.
|  Max Repel.........$700  |
o--------------------------o Not so with the Trainer Tower.

The goal here is to make it through eight floors of Trainers to the owner who
waits at the top. There are four modes for you to play; Single, Double,
Knockout, and Mixed.

In Single mode, you will each bring out one Pokemon, just like you've been
doing the entire game.

Double mode means you participate in double battles (2-on-2).

In Knockout mode, you will fight three Trainers on each floor who each have one
Pokemon. The catch is that you can't heal between the three fights.

Mixed mode holds single, double, and knockout battles.

Each Pokemon you battle here will have the level of your strongest Pokemon, so
if you have an unbalanced team, it's not recommended to fight here.

If you make it to the top, you'll have to exit and re-enter to challenge again.

You can only get each item once! (thanks to The Wierdo for pointing this out)

=================
13d. Sticker Dude
=================

Found on Four Island, this guy will put stickers on the back of your Trainer
Card based on you completing certain events a certain number of times. There
are only three stickers: one for beating the Elite Four, one for hatching an
Egg, and one for battling in the Direct Corner (linkplay).

The stickers can be upgraded to different colors after you do each task a
certain number of times:

o--------------------o---o-----o-----o-----o
| ELITE FOUR DEFEATS | 1 |  40 | 100 | 200 |
o--------------------o---o-----o-----o-----o    (thanks to The Wierdo
|    EGGS HATCHED    | 1 | 100 | 200 | 300 |     for this information)
o--------------------o---o-----o-----o-----o
|  LINK BATTLES WON  | 1 |  20 |  50 | 100 |
o--------------------o---o-----o-----o-----o

To rack up defeats of the Elite Four, simply bring in a bunch of Lv.100s for
quick wins.

Magikarp Eggs only take 1,280 steps to hatch. Get breeding ;)

For linkplay, just have one person flee. Running counts as an instant loss
(thanks to The Wierdo for pointing out something so obvious I missed it).

==================
13e. Altering Cave
==================

Found north of Six Island, this cave is somewhat of a mystery. At first glance,
it seems that the only Pokemon to be found here is Zubat. However, a closer
look at the game's data reveals that there are many Pokemon that are only found
here, including Pineco, Stantler, and Smeargle.

How does one access these hidden Pokemon?

You don't.

Altering Cave is the end result of a cave that probably would have had the
Pokemon in it change each time you used Mystery Gift. They scrapped the idea
because all the Pokemon you can find there you can either get from Colosseum or
Emerald. Since there would be no point to Mystery Gift if you could just get
the Pokemon elsewhere, they hid the data, filled the cave with Zubat, and just
left it there to look pretty.

=================
14. Miscellaneous
=================

The area for those misfits that just can't go anywhere else.

==================
14a. Effort Values
==================

To be a serious battler, one must know about the sometimes-not-so-wonderful
world of effort values, or "EVs" for short. In a nutshell, EVs are part of what
make your Pokemon unique. Each and every Pokemon that you capture starts with 0
effort points. At maximum, a Pokemon can earn 510 effort points. You can
allocate these 510 points in almost any way you choose in each stat (HP,
Attack, Defense, Speed, Special Attack, Special Defense), with the max points
for one stat being 255. The more you put into one stat, the stronger it will
be. You don't have very much control over effort values at the start of the
game, but once you've earned the National Pokedex and gained access to the Day-
Care on Four Island, a whole slew of possibilities open up. I'll go step-by-
step with you and help you create a Pokemon that's perfect for your style.

The first thing you must do is decide on a good nature for your Pokemon. Some
Pokemon have several good options for natures, and others are what one would
call "duh" natures because there's usually only one decent choice.

Each of the 25 natures can be found in section 1j, but for the sake of this
section, I'll post them again:

  Hardy: (no change)        Bold: +DEF, -ATK            Timid: +SPD, -ATK
 Lonely: +ATK, -DEF       Docile: (no change)           Hasty: +SPD, -DEF
  Brave: +ATK, -SPD      Relaxed: +DEF, -SPD          Serious: (no change)
Adamant: +ATK, -SP.ATK    Impish: +DEF, -SP.ATK         Jolly: +SPD, -SP.ATK
Naughty: +ATK, -SP.DEF       Lax: +DEF, -SP.DEF         Naive: +SPD, -SP.DEF

             Modest: +SP.ATK, -ATK          Calm: +SP.DEF, -ATK
               Mild: +SP.ATK, -DEF        Gentle: +SP.DEF, -DEF
              Quiet: +SP.ATK, -SPD         Sassy: +SP.DEF, -SPD
            Bashful: (no change)         Careful: +SP.DEF, -SP.ATK
               Rash: +SP.ATK, -SP.DEF     Quirky: (no change)

Let's use a Growlithe as an example. We caught a Growlithe, but it has a Quirky
nature. Quirky is neutral Special Defense. That isn't too bad, but we can
probably do better than that. Keep in mind that a neutral nature isn't always a
bad thing; it's a good choice for those without a lot of patience (like me).

My personal breeding method is to drop off all Pokemon in the Box and then
carry five Eggs with me. After they all hatch, I choose the best nature of the
five and then release the rest (unless one's Shining).

So we hatch five Growlithe eggs and get Impish, Naughty, Brave, Serious, and
Modest for natures. Let's see what they do. Impish is +Def, -Sp.Atk. Growlithe
is weak to two physical types and one special type. The increase in Defense
could be useful, but it hinders Growlithe's ability to use its Fire-type
attacks to their fullest because of the decrease in Special Attack. We'll set
that one aside and take a look at the next nature, Naughty. Growlithe is a
Fire-type, so it doesn't need the +Attack bonus. The Special Defense drop can
hurt Growlithe, as it would increase damage done from its special weakness.
This one's trash, so release it. A look at Brave shows that it is +Atk, -Speed.
Speed is very, _very_ important in battling, so unless your name is Golem,
Magcargo, Torkoal, Camerupt, or Whiscash, don't ever have a -Speed nature.
Release this monstrosity at once. Take a gander at the fourth baby, Serious in
nature. Serious is neutral Speed. A neutral-natured Pokemon is good to have if
you just can't get the one you want. We'll keep this one, too. On to the last
Growlithe, which is Modest. Modest is +Sp.Atk, -Atk. This is the opposite of
Adamant, and might be the best nature you can use of the five example eggs we
just hatched.

We eliminated two of the five eggs. We're left with Impish (+DEF, -SP.ATK),
Serious (+SPD, -SPD), and Modest (+SP.ATK, -ATK). Now you have to think ahead
as to what your Growlithe's moveset is going to be. If it's going to play on
its type and burn the competition down with Fire-type attacks, you'll want to
go with Modest. If you're going to use her as an annoyer of sorts, and not so
much straight damage, Impish may be your best bet. Keep in mind that these are
just examples: Growlithe is one of those Pokemon that have several different
possibilities as far as natures go. We'll do a basic special sweeper Arcanine,
and that involves Special Attack. Modest it is.

Alright, we finally have our Growlithe, and we know its nature. All that's left
is to level it up to get ready for battle. But wait! You can't just go around
defeating any Pokemon you want. This is the difficult part, and it takes a long
time to do if you're unlucky.

Each Pokemon, when killed, gives the Pokemon that killed it one, two, or three
points in one stat. These are effort points, the things you're looking for. For
example, killing a Pidgey (at any level) will give 1 Speed point. Four Pidgey

killed, four Speed points. Get it? Okay. The spots below offer the best
training (in my opinion) for any given stat; feel free to utilize them or you
can e-mail me a spot of your own.

HIT POINTS (HP)
---------------

You must have the National Pokedex. Go through the cave at Three Isle Port. The
patch of grass there only contains Dunsparce, which gives 1 point.

Average level: 15

ATTACK
------

Enter Mt. Moon and go down the first ladder. Stay here to only encounter Paras,
which gives 1 point.

Average level: 8

DEFENSE
-------

Metapod and Kakuna in Viridian Forest or Pattern Bush both give 2 points, but
they're pretty uncommon. If that doesn't suit your fancy, try Geodude in Mt.
Moon, which gives 1 point. At higher levels, you can kill Tangela south of
Pallet Town, one point each.

Average level: 5 (Viridian Forest), 9 (Pattern Bush), 11 (Mt. Moon),
               21 (Route 21)

SPEED
-----

If your Pokemon are weak, you can fight Pidgey and Rattata on Route 1. Each
gives 1 point. When you're a bit higher in level, you can take on Diglett's
Cave if you want. Diglett gives 1 point, Dugtrio gives 2 points.

Average level: 3 (Route 1), 24 (Diglett's Cave)

SPECIAL ATTACK
--------------

Pokemon Tower. Gastly gives 1, Haunter gives 2. Cubone gives 1 Defense point,
but you don't have to worry about them much, as they are quite rare. Just flee.

Average level: 19

SPECIAL DEFENSE
---------------

Surf in just about any body of water to find Tentacool (1 point).

Average level: Varies

But wait! There's more!

There are two ways to make EV training easier. The first is with the Macho
Brace. This hold item doubles the effort points you get, but lowers the Speed
of the Pokemon holding it for as long as the Pokemon holds it. Use the
Itemfinder while standing on the exact spot where Giovanni stood in Viridian
City Gym to get the Macho Brace. That's the easy part.

And then there's the Pokemon virus, or Pokerus for short. Pokerus is shown as
PKRS on the Summary Screen (and only there), and you can find it where a
Special Condition would normally be shown (it'll only appear if there is no
Special Condition). This will also double effort points gained from a battle.
For example, for every Diglett your Pokemon slaughters, it gets 1 point in
Speed. If the slaughterer is infected with PKRS, it would receive double the
points, or 2. Now let's say that this certain Pokemon is equipped with the
Macho Brace for double points again, or 4. This means that Diglett will give
you 4 Speed points every time you kill it, instead of one. Assuming all you run
into is Diglett, and you always kill it in one shot, it would take you about
20-30 minutes to complete Speed EV training.

So... how to get it?

It's very hard to catch Pokerus (you have better chances of seeing a Shining
Pokemon). Nurse Joy will tell you that your Pokemon have been infected after
healing at a Pokemon Center, and it should go away shortly. YOU DO NOT WANT
THIS TO HAPPEN. Here's how to preserve it.

When initially told you've been infected, your entire party will be infected.
Catch a Pokemon you don't care about (henceforth referred to as Pichu). Let
Pichu sit on your team for a while. Participate in a few battles and wait for
Pichu to become infected. Then all you do is deposit Pichu in the box (if you
have more than one Pichu, mark the infected Pichu with all four marks so you
know that's the one you want) and wait until you need to EV train someone else.
As long as Pichu sits in the box, PKRS will never go away. You might want to
infect multiple Pichu in the event your PKRS mysteriously vanishes from one
before you get a chance to put it back, as a safeguard of sorts.

Like I said, it's _extremely_ rare to get Pokerus. Some people are just lucky,
though, and get it almost right away. Others can have a box full of Shining
Pokemon and still not have Pokerus. Don't waste your time trying to get it.

That should do it. Any questions, comments, anything at all, e-mail me.

=======================
14a1. Individual Values
=======================

I had once thought the world of individual values (IVs) to be complex and
reserved only for the best, but according to Andy Huynh, it's quite simple:

"Each stat has a hidden value (not EVs) from 0-31. At level 100 each IV is
equal to 1 extra stat point. IVs are created when the pokemon is generated and
can not be changed"

How to figure out your Pokemon's IVs? It's a lengthy process. See the section
below to see how, as well as finding Hidden Power's type and base power.

======================================
14a2. Calculating IVs and Hidden Power
======================================

Andy Huynh is a smart guy. This section is all him, with minor things added by
me to make it fit and to possibly make it a bit more user-friendly. I am taking
credit for this in no way; this information was given to me by him.

The formula to calculate IVs is

Hit Points ( ( Stat - level - 10) x 100 / level ) - 2 x base stat ( EVs / 4* )

Other Stats ( ( ( Stat / Nature Value** ) - 5 ) x 100 / Level ) - 2 x Base Stat
            - ( EVs / 4*)

* means to remove the remainder
** replace with:
if the nature adds 10% to the stat (or multiply by 1.1)
if the nature has no effect to the stat (1)
if the nature subtracts 10% to the stat (0.9)

Round the answer (to the nearest whole number)

o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

Hidden power type and power depends on IVs. The type can be anything but
normal, and power can be between 30 and 70 including 30 and 70. The formula is:

For Type

( A + B + C + D + E + F ) x 15 / 63

A=( Hp IV if = odd)1
                       even)0
B=( Atk IV if = odd)2
                       even)0
C=( Def IV if = odd)4
                       even)0
D=( Spd IV if = odd)8
                       even)0
E=( S.A IV if = odd)16
                       even)0
F=( S.D IV if = odd)32
                       even)0

Round the answer (to the nearest whole number)

if the answer is:
0, then the type is Fighting
1, then the type is Flying
2, then the type is Poison
3, then the type is Ground
4, then the type is Rock
5, then the type is Bug
6, then the type is Ghost
7, then the type is Steel
8, then the type is Fire
9, then the type is Water
10, then the type is Grass
11, then the type is Electric
12, then the type is Psychic
13, then the type is Ice
14, then the type is Dragon
15, then the type is Dark.

For Base Power

( A + B + C + D + E + F ) * 40 / 63 + 30

A=( Hp IV if divided by 4 remainder equals 2 or 3 )1
                                                       0 or 1 )0

(in other words, if when you divide the IV by 4, the remainder is 2 or 3,
substitute A with 1 in this case; otherwise, use 0)

B=( Atk IV if divided by 4 remainder equals 2 or 3 )2
                                                       0 or 1 )0
C=( Def IV if divided by 4 remainder equals 2 or 3 )4
                                                       0 or 1 )0
D=( Spd IV if divided by 4 remainder equals 2 or 3 )8
                                                       0 or 1 )0
E=( S.A IV if divided by 4 remainder equals 2 or 3 )16
                                                       0 or 1 )0
F=( S.D IV if divided by 4 remainder equals 2 or 3 )32
                                                       0 or 1 )0
Round the answer and thats the base power
o-----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

Simply amazing. Thanks, Andy.

Extra note: Andy suggests that you find out IVs at higher levels (Lv.100 is
optimal) because at lower levels, your calculations can be inaccurate.

14d. The Trainer Card
=====================

The Trainer Card is an item of sorts that has lots of things on it. Its main
use is to keep track of the things that you've done. Open the menu and select
your name to bring up the front of your Trainer Card.

In the upper right corner, you'll see your Trainer ID Number. This number will
be assigned to all Pokemon that you catch, and any Pokemon that's _given_ to
you (like Eevee), not _traded_, will have this number as well, even though it
shouldn't. While you're getting it for nothing, someone had to catch that
Eevee, and it certainly wasn't you if you're being presented with one.

Colosseum had the right idea (Duking's Plusle).

Below that, you will find your name. Below that is the amount of money you
currently have, and below that is your Pokedex completion level. Below that is
the time you've spent on your current adventure in the format hours:minutes.

On the very bottom, you'll find pictures of each of the Badges you've earned.

Press A to flip it over.

At the beginning, this entire side is blank. However, at the end of the game,
you can fill it with lots of things.

In the upper left hand corner, there is room for three Stickers. These Stickers
can be obtained at Four Island in a house next to the PokeMart. There are three
Stickers for you to get: one for defeating the Elite Four, one for hatching an
Egg, and one for battling in the Direct Corner against a friend.

See the Sticker Dude section for more information on the stickers.

There are five blanks below that. The top one is for your initial Hall of Fame
induction time, in the format hours:minutes:seconds. The one below that is your
linkplay record. Next is the number of trades you've made with friends in the
Direct Corner, and after that is the amount of times you've traded and battled
in the Union Room. The last line contains how many times you've crushed berries
with friends.

Below all that you see six Poke Ball prints. If you go to the Celadon City Game
Corner and examine the machine in the lower right corner, you'll be able to get
the sprites of your current team planted on the card in each of those spots.
There are four different styles to choose from: Normal, Black, Pink, and Sepia.

Save before you pick. There's no way to remove the prints. You can save over
them with a new method, but there's no way to simply get rid of them.

Normal will get you the normal sprites for each of your Pokemon. Normal colors
are used. Black means the whole sprite will be black, which looks like a
silhouette of your Pokemon's sprite. If you choose pink, your Pokemon's sprite
will be colored in pink tones instead of normal. Sepia gets you a picture
similar to old-fashioned real-life photos that have that dull-looking brownish
color to it, know what I mean?

All this can be yours for the low, low price of 50 money per print.

That about wraps it up for the Trainer Card.

=================
14e. Fame Checker
=================

You get the Fame Checker after defeating Gary at Nugget Bridge. What this
thing does is let you recall things that have been said about famous people.
Anything that talks about a certain person will add that thing to the Fame
Checker, whether it be a sign, a person, or a piece of paper on the wall.
If you get all six entries for anyone, you can read a message directed at you
from the person you completed. Read this by pressing Start instead of A on the
person's name.

Here's the format.

   Location: Where this entry is located
     Person: Doesn't always mean a person, but what exactly gives it to you
   Checking: Subject of the entry
Information: What the entry says
 How to get: How to put this entry into the Fame Checker

Special Message: The message you get after completing a section

(after Elite Four) means you must defeat the Elite Four at least once before
this entry will become available.

=================
14f. Mystery Gift
=================

Go to any PokeMart and examine the sheet of paper on the counter. Enter "LINK
TOGETHER" on the top and "WITH ALL" on the bottom, in that order. Save your
game and you'll be able to access Mystery Gift on the file select screen.

However, it's quite different than we all remember in the metal games. What you
do is take your game and Wireless Adapter to a "Wonderspot." This is not in the
game; it is an actual machine in real life.

Wonderspots were at the various Pokemon Rocks America locations. They may be
adding them to various stores (across the country?), but nothing is known.

Once at a Wonderspot. turn your game on (make sure the Wireless Adapter is
connected correctly) and access Mystery Gift. There are two options: Wonder
Cards and Wonder News. Select Wonder Cards. If you don't have the Auroraticket
yet, it will let you get one. Select Wireless Communication and the Wonderspot
machine will give you an Auroraticket of your very own.

Here's the best part. Chances are high that a good number of Pokemon players do
not have the real-life means to actually _get_ to a Wonderspot and obtain the
Auroraticket. If you can, it gives you that option. Just select "Wireless
Communication" and there you go. If you're one of those unlucky folks who can't
get to one (like me), the second option, "Friend," is, well... your friend. If
you choose this, you can get an Auroraticket from a friend who either has
gotten one from a friend him/herself or has visited a Wonderspot and obtained
one. Isn't that neat? Yeah, it is.

So what to do with this Auroraticket? Well, check section 14h.

I believe the Mysticticket, the key to Navel Rock, works in the same way.

Bear in mind that this is all speculation; I'm pretty much guessing how the
Wonderspots would work. If I'm wrong, by all means, correct me.

===============
14g. Navel Rock
===============

When the Mysticticket is yours, you can go to Navel Rock, where _both_ Lugia
and Ho-oh are waiting for you. Pokemon of at least Lv.60 is recommended.
Bring the usual Special Condition inflicter and your bottomless sack of Ultra
Balls. Fly to Vermilion City, head to the port, and talk to the guy. He'll
acknowledge the Mysticticket and will allow you to go to Navel Rock.

Enter the cave. There are no items or other Pokemon here.

Go down the two ladders. The path is very long and leads to a fork which will
take you to another path that takes you to Lugia and Ho-oh. The initial path
splits twice to more long paths that ultimately net you a wall in the face
(dead end), so stay on the main path and go straight up until you get to the
left-right split.

If you want Ho-oh, go left. If you want Lugia, go right.

For Ho-oh, go up 5 ladders and head up. Ho-oh commences attack.

Ho-oh is Lv.70 when you attack it. Here's its moveset:

Sunny Day - Fire-type damage is multiplied by 150% for 5 turns.
Swift - Never misses as long as the foe is on screen.
Fire Blast - 10% chance of burning the foe.
Recover - Restore 50% of user's maximum HP.

Double weak to Rock damage. Sunny Day puts Thunder's accuracy down the tubes,
so avoid using that move. Fire Blast is going to put the hurt on your Pokemon
when combined with Sunny Day and Ho-oh's already fantastic Special Attack. Bust
out a powerful Rock-type and perform weak attacks. Taunt will be very helpful
here, as it prevents the use of Sunny Day and more importantly, Recover.

Upon capture or defeat, stand where Ho-oh attacked and use the Itemfinder to
receive the Sacred Ash, which is a Max Revive for your entire party. It's the
only one in the game, so don't ever use it. If you manage to defeat or capture
Ho-oh without getting the crap kicked out of you, should shouldn't ever need
to.

For Lugia, go down an annoying 12 ladders. Lugia sits in front of you.

Lugia is Lv.70 when you attack it. Here's its moveset:

Rain Dance - Water-type damage is multiplied by 150% for 5 turns.
Swift - Never misses as long as the foe is on screen.
Hydro Pump - No added effects.
Recover - Restore 50% of user's maximum HP.

Lugia is Psychic/Flying in type, so it has no double weaknesses. Luckily, it
doesn't get STAB for its only powerful attack, so it will hurt less. Don't take
it lightly, though. Rain Dance powers it up and it gains even more strength
from Lugia's Special Attack. Anything that resists Water will do fine here.

That's all for Navel Rock.

=================
14h. Birth Island
=================

Once you have the Auroraticket, you can go to Birth Island where the "never-
before-seen" Pokemon Deoxys makes its home. As always, make sure you have a
Pokemon that can inflict a Special Condition other than Burn and Poison and
you're in possession of lots of Ultra Balls. Fly to Vermilion City and go to
the port. The guy will notice your Auroraticket and offer to take you to Birth
Island. Contrary to popular belief, you can visit this place an infinite number
of times. The real nifty thing about Deoxys is that it has four different
forms, depending on which game you're playing (Ruby & Sapphire, FireRed,
LeafGreen, or Emerald).

The Ruby & Sapphire-flavored Deoxys is average, for the most part. No stat is
too greater than any other. You can't catch Deoxys in these games, though.
You'll have to trade it from the three games listed below.

FireRed players are blessed with a Deoxys that's built for a quick assault. Its
Attack and Special Attack stats are through the roof, while it leaves both
defense stats in the crapper. Its Speed is decent.

Those with LeafGreen get a Deoxys with the armor of a thousand soldiers. This
particular version has extremely high Defense and Special Defense, but its
attack stats leave something to be desired. Like the FireRed one, this Deoxys'
Speed isn't too shabby.

And then there's Emerald. Pokemon Emerald has its very own version of Deoxys.
This one excels in Speed, making it the fastest Pokemon ever. What about
Ninjask, you say? Well, after one turn, Speed Boost will still make Ninjask
faster than Deoxys. All other stats are balanced, for the most part.

And if you trade Deoxys between versions, its stats will change to match the
version you traded it to! I bet that took a while to script.

Unlike most legendaries, it's not exactly that easy to fight anymore.

If you're playing FireRed, Pokemon of above Lv.40 is recommended.
If you're playing LeafGreen, Pokemon of at least Lv.30 will do fine.

When you get to the island, you will first notice that there is no music. Your
GBA [SP] isn't broken, so don't dismantle it or anything to try and fix it.

You'll also see a triangle-shaped plot of land and a black triangle in dead
center. Your job is to manipulate the movements of this triangle so it ends up
one square above center, but red instead of black. As long as you don't turn
unnecessarily (you have to start over if you turn even once out of line), you
can simply walk to the triangle as it moves. When you touch the triangle, press
A to move it to another location.

Start at the bottom of the triangle.
One step down and all the way left.
Three steps right and all the way up.
Five steps down and all the way right.
Three steps up and all the way left.
All the way right.
Two steps left and all the way down.
One step down and all the way left.
All the way right.
Three steps left and face down.

This will make the triangle red and one square above center. Now you can save.
If you step on the dock, you'll have to start over. Examine the triangle one
more time. The ground will shake and the triangle explodes. Deoxys will attack.

Deoxys is Lv.30 when you attack it. Here's its moveset:

FireRed
-------

Taunt - Foe can only use moves that cause direct damage for two turns.
Psychic - 10% chance of lowering the foe's Special Defense by 1 level.
Superpower - Lowers user's Attack and Defense by 1 level.
Pursuit - Doubles in base power if used on a foe that's switching out.

LeafGreen
---------

Spikes - Each new foe's entry takes 3-4% HP in damage. Can be used three times.
Snatch - Steal the foe's recovery or stat-boosting attack.
Psychic - 10% chance of lowering the foe's Special Defense by 1 level.
Knock Off - Foe drops held item. This item is returned after the battle.

You'll notice that no matter which version you have, Deoxys has its Ruby &
Sapphire battle sprite when you encounter it. This isn't a glitch. It was
intentional, and it will change to the appropriate sprite upon capture. In
fact, Deoxys already has the stats of your respective version, so battle it
with that in mind.

Assuming your levels are around 40, FireRed's Deoxys can rip you apart in
seconds with Psychic. Don't forget: there's _monster_ Special Attack backing it
up. It puts Dark-types to shame with Superpower, one of the most powerful
Fighting-type attacks. If your Pokemon are below Lv.50, it's suggested to get
out and train until you pass that mark or get very close to it so you'll have
less trouble. Otherwise, you can get a high-level Xatu. Catch Natu, its pre-
evolution, in Ruin Valley. Inflict your condition and throw, throw, throw. Not
much else to say.

When compared to FireRed's Deoxys, the one in LeafGreen seems wimpy. Its only
threat is Psychic, and doesn't have the raw power that the FireRed one has to
inflict massive damage. However, Deoxys is still a legendary Pokemon, and
Psychic is still capable of hurting. Pursuit, oh no. No STAB means weak damage.
At any rate, you can easily beat its HP into the red and toss until it's yours.

That's all for Birth Island.

15. Version History
===================

Version 0.1 - November 3, 2004
Initial release. I hate relying on other people, but I must, and so this
walkthrough isn't "complete" yet. I need Gary's Lv.75 Blastoise's moveset, as
well as information on Dodrio Berry-Picking. Help is appreciated.

Version 0.2 - December 17, 2004
Lots of changes...the Scyther/Pinsir thing has been fixed. Two new sites have
been added. People have submitted a few attacks. I've found and added the 100
Coins in the Game Corner. Information on individual values has been added.
Information on calculating IVs and Hidden Power's type and base power has been
added. Gary's Lv.75 Blastoise moveset has been given and added. I can't think
of anything else. I could use some information regarding Dodrio Berry-Picking,
as I will never be able to play it myself.

Version 0.3 - January 13, 2005
A couple moves have been added, some stupid errors have been fixed.

Version 0.4 - February 2, 2005
Added some moves... that might be all. Go check. If you?ve submitted an error
to me, I might have fixed it, unless I forgot. Just thought I could use an
update.

Version 0.5 - April 19, 2005
Right, thought it was time for an update. Lots of submissions and changes.

Version 0.6 - August 12, 2005
I removed the "Matt's Moves" section. The overwhelming majority of submissions
I've received are terrible. There were some good entries, but not enough to
warrant the continuation of that particular section. Plus, with the smaller
file size, those with slower browsers should be able to load it.
