-Fishing is a Trainer Skill which allows the player to encounter Pokemon from water, pond, sea tiles on the map.

-To start training Fishing, first you need to purchase an Old rod for 5k in the building to the left of Vermillion City Pokemon Center

-To Fish, face a body of water and press the "F" button on your keyboard and wait until a bar shows up.

There will be a "Hook Icon" that moves left and right. You will need to press the Space Bar to stop the hook. If the hook lands in the yellow box, you will hook a Pokémon. If the hook lands on the tiny green box, you will perfectly hook the Pokémon which will give you more Fishing XP.
