Gary Oak You Long Time rival.Prof. Oak tells you to get the pokeball on the table but Gary shoves you out and get its!! Now Prof. Oak will give you the pikachu adn when you try and leave Gary will battle you with his eevee.kill him and head north to virdian! While your walking, you'll see a boy at the left. He's from the Pokemart. Talk to him, and he will give you a potion for a sample. Keep going until you get to the next town.

Now you can either go to the PKMN Center and heal your pkmn and then save, or you can get the Deliver something.. . Go to the Pokemart and the seller will ask if your from Pallet. Then he will give you "Oak's Parcel". Go back to Prof.Oak. Back. Back Again To Viridian!( Like Blue And Red )

Viridian Forest
( B4 You Go U Might Wanna Battle Gary! Req: Atleast A Level 9 -10 Pokemon! Any Lower You DEAD!!! ) Head north to get here. In this forest, trainers will challenge you. There will be 3 items here: at the start in the forest, go left and you will find an item. Another is near the northern area. The last one is near the last trainer.(Pokemon U Should Have Nidoran(M/F), Mankey Should Be Good As Lon As Its High Leveled Against Brock Atleast a Level 15-20 Mankey!And A Butterfree(ButterFree Is Easy To Raise And Dependable When It Comes To Strong Psychic Attacks! )

Pewter City
Now go to the pkmn center and heal your pkmn, and you should have a nidoran male or female with the attack, Double Kick,Mankey That Knows Karate Chop, Or A Butterfree That Knows Confusion It Will Take A lot Of Damage!(they will come in handy against Brock)

Badge: Boulder Badge

Geodude: use the nidoran and use double kick the whole time and it should die fast.

Onix: same as geodude, but if your nidoran dies, use Butterfree.

You just got your first badge and a TM, Bide. Now on to Misty for your 2nd badge!
Start heading East from pewter into route 3. You will face pkmn of course, and then you will get to a pkmn center. Heal your pkmn and start heading into Mt. Moon...

Mt. Moon
When you enter, you can go west to get the items, or just go east to get out. Keep going north and then take a turn left, and don't go through the first ladder. When you get to the ladder near the guy, go in that one.Now at the other end, go east and follow the trail. You may fight a few TR's. Now when you get to the guy with fossils, beat him and take one. Now when you get near the end, Jessie and James will stop you and battle( Recommend A Level 20-25 Pokemon to have a quick battle....)

Jessie and James
Ekans: use your pikachu or pidgey or nidoran.
Meowth: same as ekans.
Koffing: ground type will do best.

After beating them head all the way to Cerulean. Bulbasaur is what we want to get, so head to the house near the pkmn center and you will see a girl with a bulbasaur. If your pikachu is in a good mood and happy, she will give you bulbasaur!
Now to fight Misty...

Staryu: use your pikachu and it should be at a high level ( Atleast 22-30).
Starmie: use pikachu.

That was pretty much the easiest battle since you have your pikachu with you! Now you have 2 badges: boulder & cascade. Now to get a 3rd badge...

Routes 24 and 25
Head north to nugget bridge, and you will face your rival:Gary

Spearow LV20( I Think? ) Use A Mankey Or Nidoran (M/F)!
Sandshrew LV15: NOT Pikachu...Nidoran, Butterfree, Or Mankey instead.
Rattata LV15: any pkmn or Mankey is my choice.
Eevee: easy. any pkmn( Recommend You Weakest To Battle To Level It UP! And Switch It If Its About To Die! ).

Now after that keep going and fight five people(More Like 6! ) on the bridge to get a nugget DON'T FOGET TO ASK THE GUY AT THE LEFT CORNER FOR A CHARMANDER!, NOW head to Bill's house. Talk to him , help him and he'll give you a ticket now go back to town( Every1 Should Know The Short CUT ). Now head south...

route 5
You can go to the daycare and give the man a pkmn to take of here( I Dont Recommend It Though Because The Pknm Will be very weak compared to ones you raise by yourself ), or just go to the underground path to continue your journey. now you will get to route 6, head south to virmilion city.

Virmilion City
Now that you got the ticket to get on the S.S.Anne from Bill, you should board it to continue your journey. Fight some trainers for EXP( I Recommend Level 25 -30 Pkmn ), and then get to the captain's area...but you will get stopped by Gary again...

Lt. Surge
Raichu LV28: use a sandshrew or sandslash so you got best chances of winning, because then it can't attack with many moves.

After beating him, you got 3 badges! Talk to the Officer ( I Think It Officer Jane )to get squirtle! now for the 4th badge.

Route 11
Head East and into the cave, Diglett's Cave. When you get through the end, start heading back all the way to Cerulean City. Now head East instead of south and get to rock tunnel.

Rock Tunnel
( Req: An Electric Pkmn With Flash! )It's a very long tunnel, but very easy to navigate since only 2 ladders exist on each floor(which is the ladder you came from and the one you go through). You will get to lavender town. Here you can go to this house where you can rename/nickname your pkmn. The PKMN Tower is here, but we will get to that later. Head West to route 8 and into the underground path. Now you should get all the way to Celadon City...

Celadon City
To get Eevee, go north in the town and behind the buildings, then you will get into a building and all the way to a room. A pokeball is there, which contains eevee.( I Recommend Evolving Eevee Into Jolteon Hes Stronger Than Pikachu! )
The big PokeMart is here, which you can buy alot of good things. And the Exchange corner is here in town, where you can play the slots. Buy some water in the mall and give it to the guards for later on. Lets go to the gym for the 4th badge.

Saffron City
Go north to the 2 gyms and go to the one that's not blocked. The Fighting Pokemon GYM. At the end, you will fight the leader and be able to pick from hitmonchan or hitmonlee( I recommend Hitmonchan!

Back at fuchsia City, you can go south and surf to seafoam islands to catch the articuno(pushing boulders in all the holes to get out and reach the end ad articuno), or you can just skip it and go fly to pallet and surf south.
