Obtaining HM Cut

You get the HM from the captain of the SS Anne, details below

  1. Reach Cerulean City and win against the Cerulean Gym.
  2. Head north and battle your way past the trainers on the (nugget) bridge. When you reach the top of the bridge, go east until you reach a building. Inside that building, talk to Bill and he will give you the SS Anne Ticket.
  3. Go South from Cerulean City, head through the underground path to Vermilion City. The SS Anne is docked on the southern edge of Vermilion City.
  4. Navigate through the ship and find the Captain. Rub his back ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) and he'll give you the HM.
  5. Press spacebar on a cuttable tree to use it. (you don't have to teach it to a pokemon)
