Taken from /guide in game

Pallet Town

We start in Pallet Town.

Walkthrough pallet-town

We visit Professor Oak who gives us our starter Pokémon. Note that the starter is untradeable.

Walkthrough oaks-lab

After getting our first Pokémon, we leave the lab and head North:

Viridian City

We come across a City, called Viridian. This will be the 8th gym not the one we need so we continue north.

Walkthrough viridian-city

Viridian Forest

Navigate through Viridian Forest to make it to the next town.

Viridian forest

Pewter City

Next we enter the City of Pewter, and 1st gym. The gym leader’s name is Brock and he uses Rock type Pokémon.


Brocks Pokemon
Brocks pokemon

Tips: If using Squirtle or Bulbasaur, when they have a move of their type, this will be easy to do.
If using Charmander, the move Dragon Rage will help defeat Brock.

After beating him, he gives us a badge, and we continue our journey east, towards Mt Moon.

Mt Moon

This is where you can first start mining. An NPC near the start will offer you an 'Old Pickaxe' for $5,000.

Wild Pokemon can be encountered at any point in the cave, so you may either want to use a repel, or bring a Geodude to take down Zubats quickly.

Step 1 - Mt Moon Main

Step 2 - Mt Moon E1

Step 3 - Mt Moon Main 2

Step 4 - Mt Moon E3

(Note that the other ladders lead to additional mining spots and trainers.)
After exiting Mt Moon continue East, on to Cerulean.

Cerulean City


This is where we find Misty's gym. A bike can also be bought here for $50,000.

Misty uses Water type Pokémon.

Misty's Pokemon
Mistys pokemon

Tips: Bulbasaur will easily win here.
If your starter wasn’t Bulbasaur, try hunting an Oddish on Route 24 and train it until it learns Mega Drain at level 19.

Once you have defeated Misty, Head North to Route 25. Inside a house you will find Bill, who gives you the SS Anne Ticket.

With the SS Anne Ticket in hand, head back to Cerulean and then head south towards Vermillion. There are guards blocking the way so you will need to use the building highlighted to get around for now.

Pass to vermillion

Vermillion City

Now we enter Vermillion City, this is where you’ll go back to for Tourneys, Clan Wars, etc.

Finding the HM Cut

Head South to the docks and enter the SS Anne.





Once we have HM Cut, we can prepare for the gym. 

This gym is Electric type, so we will need a Ground type Pokémon. Cheapest option would be to get a Diglett from Diglett’s Cave and grind it to around level 20-30 as it can easily beat the gym. 

Surge poke

Tip: Try getting an Arena Trap Diglett and if you wish head back up to Route 24, just north of Misty's town, and try your luck at an Abra.

At this point we should also think about getting our fishing rod and start to increase our fishing level whilst hunting a decent Adamant Magikarp.

After beating this gym, lets go get HM Flash; as we will need this later for the method.

Diglett cave

Diglett’s Cave entrance is just east of Vermillion.

After going through here, just head south to Oak’s Aid. Note you will need to catch/evolve 10 different Pokémon to receive Flash.


Head back to Vermillion then up to Misty’s town and head east onto Route 9, heading to Rock Tunnel.

On route rock tunnelOn route rock tunnel1

Rock Tunnel




Lavender Town  

Next we come to Lavender, we will need to come back here later so just heal up and head west.


As the guards will still be blocking Saffron until we defeat Celadon Gym, we will need to go through the underground path highlighted.

Lavender pass

Celadon City

We now arrive at Celadon City. This is where you have the choice to gamble your PPO savings for Tokens for various prizes.


The Casino is where you get the Silph Scope, this is what is needed to reach the top of Lavender Tower. It also is known as Game Corner, the home of Rocket Hideout. Just the right is where you can exchange Casino Tokens for prizes.

Step 1

Silph scope1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 5

Go back up the stairs and find the Lift.

Step 6 
Beat Giovanni for the Silph Scope.

Silph scope 6

Giovanni's Pokemon

Giovannis poke

The gym is the 4th one in Kanto and the one you need to defeat in order to open up Saffron City. Erika, the leader of the gym, uuses Grass type Pokémon. If we found a Magikarp earlier, it’ll be decent if you evolve it to Gyarados. If not, you can find Growlithe/Vulpix in the grass area of Route 7/8. Otherwise any Flying or Bug Pokémon will also work.

Erikas poke

After beating Celadon gym, we now have opened Saffron but need to complete the Pokeflute quest before carrying on there. So it's back to Lavender and into the tower.
At the top is where we will find Mr. Fuji and the Pokeflute.

Fuchsia City

Now that Snorlax has moved, we can head south of Lavender Town to Fuchsia.


The Safari is where we can find the HM Surf.



The Fuchsia gym leader is Koga and he uses Poison type Pokémon.

Koga pokemon 

Tips: If you have Alakazam or Gengar, they would easily defeat Koga.
      Gyarados would also work, plus we will need him later in game.
After beating the gym here, you will be able to Surf outside of battle. 

Saffron City

The large building in the middle is where we first need to go as this will open the Saffron gym.

Note: If you have not completed the Snorlax quest, you can’t access the building.


On Floor 1 by the stairs, you will find Giovanni and a grant guarding the president. You need to battle them and win to save the president.


After this is complete, we can go do the gym. The gym leader’s name is Sabrina and she uses Psychic type Pokémon

Sabrina poke

Tips: Gengar and Alakazam would also work here.
Gyarados should be ready at this point so we are ready for the Kanto E4 and beyond.

Seafoam Island

Cinnabar Island

  • To get here you can either surf south of Fuchsia and through Seafoam Island (Maps in the tab above) or you can go through Diglett’s Cave and head towards Pallet town (where our journey began) and surf south from there. 
  • You can exchange Fossil Shards in the lab for fossil Pokémon here.
  • The gym is locked so we need to find the key.  This is in the Mansion’s Basement.

Viridian City

  • From Cinnabar, you can surf north back to Viridian for the 8th and final gym before Kanto E4.
  • Viridian gym is where we face Giovanni for the 3rd and final time! He uses Ground type Pokémon.

Victory Road

Kanto Elite Four

  • Gyarados with Dragon Rage and 2+ physical moves (Crunch and Ice Fang are used to demonstrate here)
  • Magnemite or its evolved form with moves Thunder Wave and Flash, ability Sturdy

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 move discharge should easily beat her. If needed, have a trusted Electrode on you and he should finish the job if Gyarados should fail to sweep.

  • Bruno
    • For this E2 member, the move Thunder Wave will not work so just 2x Flash to lower the accuracy then Dragon Dance sweep using Waterfall  (with this one, try and get 6x Dragon Dance but if your health hits 50% then just start the sweep). You can get a Tentacruel with surf and easily kill Onix.
  • Agatha
    • Try to get a gengar to use a ghost type move. Except on Arbok and Golbat,Use your Electrode.
  • Lance
    • Set up again like normal using Crunch on Gyarados, Ice Fang on the Dragonairs, Waterfall on the Aerodactyl, and Ice Fang again on the Dragonite.
  • Rival
    • We arrive to face our rival. The 1st Pokémon is Pidgeot who has the move Fly, so make sure to keep track of your set up.  Use Waterfall on Pidgeot, Alakazam and Rhydon, Then use Ice Fang on Venusaur, and then Crunch on Blastoise, after Blastoise dies, use Waterfall on Charizard.
