Here is your final challenge for the region. Below are some recommendations to help prepare: 

  • Gyarados with Dragon Rage and 2+ physical moves (Crunch and Ice Fang are used to demonstrate here)
  • Gengar with Shadow Ball and Destiny Bond. 

Optional moves that may help:

They are all used at the first opposing pokemon. The spikes deal direct damage or poison damage when opponent switches pokemon, and Leech Seed restores HP of your active pokemon while draining from opposing pokemon.

  • Lorelei

For this E1 member, the electric and grass type Pokemon should easily beat her. If needed, Fighting type Pokemon will also help.  


  • Bruno
    • For this E2 member, water, grass, and flying type Pokemon will help you. You can get a Tentacruel with surf and easily kill both Onix.

  • Agatha
    • Psychic type Pokemon will almost guarantee you a win. Other Ghost type Pokemon such as Gengar will also help. 

  • Lance

  • Two-third's of Lance's Pokemon are dragon type. With that in mind, Ice type Pokemon will help. Overall, Lance is well balanced and can deal with most Pokemon you'll throw his way. be careful and stick to any strategy you've been using so far. Don't forget your entry hazards if you have them, especially Stealth Rock. 

  • Rival
    • You arrive to face your rival. The first Pokémon is Pidgeot who has the move Fly, so make sure to keep track of your set up.  Just like Lance, your Rival will also have awell balanced team. Again, keep to your strategies and give this battle all you got!

Congratulations! You have defeated the Elite Four and can now progress to the Johto region.

Hint: This house is the only one on the route. 

Fishing house 3

Where can I go to improve my fishing levels? You can fish anywhere to improve your fishing levels. As you raise your levels, you'll gain access to more secluded areas that'll allow you to gain more experience. 

What's the difference between the fishing rods? As your fishing rod improves, the time it'll take to encounter a Pokemon while fishing will decrease, meaning that you'll encounter more Pokemon within a given period of time. 

Are there good Pokemon I can obtain with my fishing skills? Once you reach level 15 fishing, you'll be able to fish for a Dratini and other rare Pokemon in the Kanto Safari Zone. Dratini is a powerful Pokemon that'll aid you in your adventure if you're able to find one.

Guru 2

The Super Pickaxe, a pickaxe one level above the Good Pickaxe, can be purchased from the Mining Guru in the bottom floor of Cerulean Cave. 

Guru 3

What's the difference between the pickaxes? The speed in which you'll mine Gems will increase. Additionally, you have an increased chance to mine two Gems at once. 

How else can I increase my mining speed? Along with obtaning better pickaxes, your speed will increase as your mining level rises. 

I got a shard from mining. What does that mean? A shard is a piece of a fossil Pokemon. Collect 100 of a specific shard (each type has its own name and specific Pokemon) and bring them to the researcher on Cinnabar Island. You'll be able to exchange these 100 shards for your very own fossil Pokemon.
