September 09, 2009: Beginning of Bare-bones Guide
September 10 - October 5, 2009: Writing the Johto Guide
October 13, 2009 - January 11, 2010: Writing the Kanto Guide
______________________________________________________________________________
February 15, 2010: Hello everyone! Now that we have the Kanto guide out of
the way, the guide is now up to version 3.00! We have made

several changes to the guide that should bring this guide


up to speed for the English release in March.
* Thanks to serebii.net, various names of the English
version have been revealed, including your other gender
rival's names, team rocket executives, various item
names, and a few locations that were not in the original
GSC. They have been changed in this version of the guide
to reflect the English version of the game.
The Poketholon has been changed to Pokeathlon, and the
Technique stat is now the Skill stat. The Pokedex section
has been edited to reflect these changes.
* Added the Kanto guide up to the Viridian Gym
* Pokeathlon stats and Move Tutor info up to the Sinnoh Dex
have been added
* Japanese/English changes added to the Changes FAQ
section.
If anything has been changed from what serebii says, or any
new info is revealed, I will add it to the guide. If you
see anything that references the Japanese version, then let
me know.
As far as the next update goes, I will try to get the
Updated Pokemon League, Cerulean Cave, and Mt. Silver and
the final battle in before or around the release of HGSS
in North America.
______________________________________________________________________________
March 09, 2010:
Only several more days until HG/SS is released in the
United States! Here is a update to help finish up a bunch
of things.
* Added the Endgame Guide section. This covers the rematch
against the Elite Four, Mt. Silver, and the final battle
against the former Champion.
* Added the Battle Frontier guide from my Platinum guide,
and corrected it for HGSS.
* Added a variety of Legendary areas, including two of the
Legendary Birds, and Suicune.
Originally, this update was going to contain info on
Cerulean Cave/Mewtwo and Seafoam/Articuno, but I wanted to
get the info on the updated Elite Four and Mt. Silver
before the game comes out in the US. Hopefully, they should
be in Version 3.11, which I will try to get out before the
US version comes out.
As for updates, I am going to try to do at least one more
update before it is released. If there is any major things
revealed before the release, such as any English names and
the like, I will try to add it to the guide. It might take
me a few days to get through HGSS, so bear with me when it
comes to updates.
______________________________________________________________________________

March 12, 2010:

Got several more updates today!


* Added Mewtwo/Cerulean Cave and Articuno/Seafoam Island
to the side-quest section.
* Re-did the Pokemon Encounter rates to include Pokemon
that are available via Rock Smash and Headbutting
Trees. Also removed any instances of surfing or national
dex Pokemon where there are none for that route or area.
* Added info to the Pokedex section on Pokemon that can
only be found in the special Safari Zone settings or
via the Pokewalker.
By the time this update should be out, Pokemon HGSS should
be available in the United States. I will try to answer
any questions that come along, and fix any errors as soon
as I can.

There should be a lot more content in the following updates


(Phone info, Gym Leader rematches, Pokeathlon and Pokewalker
info, etc), so stay tuned!
______________________________________________________________________________
March 14, 2010:
Hello English players! If you are reading this, you
probably picked up HGSS from your local store. This update
is mostly a few corrections from the Japanese version.
* Changed the info on the old man in the beginning of
Cherrygrove
* Renamed all instances of Tin Tower to Bell Tower.
* Changed the rival's first encounter from ??? to Passerby
Boy.
* Re-did the Game Corner section of Goldenrod.
* Added the questions the lady at the Goldenrod Radio Tower
asks you.
I will be adding more as I play the English version.
Nintendo has also announced that the Yellow Forrest event
for the Pokewalker will become available on April the 1st
up until April the 30th.
______________________________________________________________________________
March 16th, 2010: Hello everyone! I am near the end of the English Version
(Got all 16 badges and most of the legendaries), so I have
several major additions.
* Added English names for trainers on the routes, caves,
and Gyms.
* Added Lapras to the side quest section.
* Added the PokeGear Phone Numbers to the guide.
* Added Daily/Weekly side quests as well as a schedule
for what you can do on each day.

* Added the questions the elder at the Dragon's Den asks


you and clarified how you get a Dratini.
* Added several places you can get decent hidden items,
like Rare Candy
* Added info on things you can do once you can surf
* Added some more info on various places, like the
Goldenrod Underground and the Celadon Game Corner
* Added a capture profile for Sudowoodo in the main
guide.
* Did a number of corrections, mainly stuff people pointed
out in their emails.
I was going to add Entei and Raikou in this update, but due
to time I will have to do it in the next one. Currently,
I am up to date with my emails and if I have not responded,
it is either because I already corrected something, the
question is already in the guide, or it is a old email.
Also, the next week might not have any updates, since I
will be rather busy. I will still answer any questions, and
if you still see anything wrong, let me know.
______________________________________________________________________________
April 7th, 2010: It has been awhile since I last updated...I have been
working on this version for awhile, but due to a variety of
things going on I have not had much of a chance to work on
it for half a month. Here is the updates:
* Added the Berry Guide section, which is a heavily
modified version of my berry guide from Platinum
* Added the side quest section for non-weekly or daily
side-quests
* Added Entei and Raikou to the side quest section
* Split the Pokegear Phonenumber section into a new
part of the guide called "Pokegear Guide"
* Corrected the Extremespeed Dratini info that MANY of you
have emailed me about.
* Added the requested Exclusives Guide to the Misc Guide
section
* Added the Special Wallpapers and Eggs section
* Added a new way to look at your Secret ID.
* Added my friends code at the bottom. If you feel like
battling, let me know and we will work out a time. I will
not do trades, however.
* Did several corrections here and there.
I have gone through all of my emails and made the changes

that were necessary. As for the next updates, I do plan on


adding some info on the Pokewalker finally after testing it
out for the last month or so, and I also plan to cover the
two new routes in Johto. I will be going on a trip at the
end of the month, so do not expect any updates until May.
______________________________________________________________________________
April 18, 2010:
Although I did not add the new areas to the guide in this
update, I did add a few things I have been wanting to add
for awhile.
* Added the Swarm, Headbutt, Bug Catching Contest, and
Hoenn and Sinnoh sound to the Post-National Dex section
* Added the Bank of Mom and Rock Smash Item section to
the misc guide section.
* Thanks to a reader with the handle Tarken, I found out
that I missed the Wise Glasses item in not only the
main guide, but in the items guide.
* Thanks to a reader named Julie, I have made some changes
to the ability section for quite a few abilities.
* Thanks to a reader named Jeremy, we have some more info
on the Voltorb Flip game that I absolutely hate.
* Did some other minor corrections here and there.
I got to most of the emails, but there are still I few I
need to check although I got most of the important stuff
out of the way. Also, for those who do not know Pokemon
Black and White have been revealed and will be released in
Japan at the end of this year on the DS. Goodie...More work
in front of me.
______________________________________________________________________________
December 29, 2010: Hello everyone, sorry it has been awhile since I last
updated. Reason why you have not heard from me in some time
is because I have been a little put off by the guide, I was
preparing a gigantic update near the end of April, but my
PC lost it and I have not been in the mood to write for a
little while. Anywho, nothing major today besides minor
corrections from emails:
* Added the Battle Castle to the Battle Frontier guide
* anubis1231992 on Gamefaqs has informed be about 2
trainers on Route 41 that I have forgotten about. They
have been added.
* Added some advice from KB Karma to the Pokemon League
section and the Bank of Mom
* A man named Elwood informed me that I was missing the
Aprishaker from my guide and was nice enough to send
me a description to use in that section.
* JP Davis sent me some clarification on the Pokerus
with eggs. It has been added to the pokerus section.
* Added the Shiny Leaf guide to the Misc Guides section

* Added the Ruins of Alph to the sidequest guide section.


* Added info on the Plates to the Side Quest section. I
also fixed the location of the plates in the item
section.
With Pokemon Black and White coming to America on March
6th, I will be working on finishing up both my Platinum
and HGSS guides before then. If you have any questions
or fixes, let me know now because after March 1st, I
will no longer be updating this guide.
______________________________________________________________________________
January 9, 2010: Sort of a small update, but it lays the groundwork for
future updates.
* Added the first half of the Pokewalker guide. Not all
the courses are on the list, but will be added within
the next few updates. There will be more sections
detailing the Pokewalker and certain mechanics, but
I wanted to get the courses I finished up at least.
* Added Groundon/Kyogre and Rayquaza to the sidequest
section
* Did some fixing up in the Mystery Gift section. Certain
event Pokemon I forgot to link to in the Table of
Contents are now linked to, and corrected some info on
certain event Pokemon.
Note that several events are coming up: The legendary dogs
can be downloaded at Gamestop through February (See the
guide for more info), Ash's Pikachu can be downloaded at
Toy's 'R Us later in January, and the very rare Celebi
will be available in February. The legendary dogs unlock
stuff in B&W, Celebi unlocks the Ilex Shrine sidequest in
HGSS, and a special Pokemon in B&W.

When you first start up the game, you will be taken to a screen that has
several options on it. Press the bottom one to continue. Prof. Oak will then
appear and ask you if you are a boy or a girl and then your name. Once that is
done, you will be taken to New Bark Town.

You will start in your room. Head on down and your mother will give you your

bag. You can now also save and view your status.
When you first step out, Marill will come up to you and then leave and you
will see the first glimpse of the opposite gender rival. If you are playing
as a male, your opposite gender rival will be Lyra, a new addition to the
GSC story and a replacement for Crystal's Kris female character. Female
characters will meet Ethan, the original protagonist from GSC.
You can explore a little bit and see a red haired boy in the window, but for
now continue to Prof. Elm's lab (The big building in the upper left). Go
inside and he will ask you to run a errand for him and let you choose between
3 Pokemon.
* Totodile, a water Pokemon
* Chikorita, a grass Pokemon
* Cyndaquil, a fire Pokemon
In this game, Cyndaquil is actually easy mode, Totodile is medium, and
Chikorita is hard to use against the gyms, so choose wisely. The Pokemon
you choose will also appear behind you now. Before you leave, Prof. Elm's
aid will give you 5 Potions.
After you exit the lab, Ethan or Lyra will appear and talk to you and leave
again. Once that is finished, go talk to your mother and she will give you
the Pokegear. It is similar to how it worked in the original GSC versions,
but it now has touchscreen support. Leave your house and try to go west
and Prof. Elm will appear and give you his phone number. Once you are ready,
head to Route 29.

Since you just got your first Pokemon, you might want to take the time to
fight some of the Pokemon on this route for experience. It is mainly Sentret

for the most part, but Hoothoot do come out at night. You cannot catch Pokemon
at this point, so it is just battling for EXP. Head west until you reach
Cherrygrove City.

* Note that items such as Pokeballs will not be available until after you
have learned how to capture Pokemon.
Once you enter Cherrygrove, a old man at the entrance will show you around and
then give you the Running Shoes, a staple of the series since RSE that allows
you to run when you hold the B Button. If you tap the shoes on the touch
screen, they will allow you to run without pressing the B Button. However,
keep in mind that wild pokemon will appear more if you are using the Running
Shoes, so you may want to walk while you are in grass.
You might want to heal up at this point at the Pokemon Center. You cannot
capture Pokemon at the moment, so you will have to wait. You can buy Potions

however. Once you are ready, head over to Route 30. When you try to leave,
the old man will stop you and give you a Pokegear add-on called the Map
Card. It will allow you to see the map via the Pokegear and keep track of
any roaming Pokemon you have active.

Route 30 has changed a little bit since the old days. You still do not have
any Pokeballs, but you can get a Apricorn Box from the man in the first house
you see. It will allow you to get Apricorns from the different looking trees
around Johto.
You can't go up the west side of the route yet, so continue to the east side
up to Mr. Pokemon's house. Inside, you will find Prof. Oak and Mr. Pokemon
talking and Mr. Pokemon will give you the Odd Egg key item and heal your
Pokemon. After that, Prof Oak will give you the Johto Pokedex and his
phone number. Head outside and Prof. Elm will call you and say that one of his

Pokemon has been stolen.


+========================+
|Cherrygrove and Route 29|
+========================+
Head back to Cherrygrove and then to Route 29 (Make sure your Pokemon are
healed). A red haired boy will appear and you will find out he was the one
who stole the Pokemon and then fight you.

|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Like any rival fight, he will have the Pokemon that you are weak
|
|
against. Good thing is you should be at least lv 7 by now and he has |
|
no elemental attacks. You also should still have those potions that |
|
Prof. Elm's aid gave you earlier, so use them if you need them. Its |
|
easy experience.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once that is done, heal up at the Pokemon Center and head back to New Bark
Town and to Prof. Elm's lab.
Inside, Prof. Elm will be talking to a police officer, and Ethan or Lyra will
appear and then the Police Officer will ask you for your Rival's name. Like
your name, you can only do 5 characters in the Japanese version so choose
well. Talk to Prof. Elm and you will give him the Odd Egg.
Once you are ready, head back to Route 229 and Ethan or Lyra will be there and
explain how you capture Pokemon. After he/she shows you, they will give you 5
Pokeballs. You can also now buy Pokeballs from the Pokemarts.
Now that you have some Pokeballs, you can finally access the early part of
Route 46. Head to Route 29 go on the upper part of the route until you find a
gatehouse that will lead to the first half of Route 46.

Not much you can do on the southern part of Route 46. There are a few rare
Pokemon you can capture, such as Geodude and Spearow. When you try to go
North, you will find that the path is blocked due to a ledge. You won't be
able to reach the other side until much later in the game.
Head back to Cherrygrove (Might want to buy some Pokeballs), and then to
Route 30 again.

Go back to the area where the two guys were fighting, and they should be done
by now. Once you beat the first kid, he will ask you if you can register his
phone number.
There are several Pokemon you can capture on the route, such as Caterpie,
Pidgey, and so on. You might want to look at capturing one for the gym ahead
especially if you choose Chikorita.
Keep going north and your mother will eventually call you and ask if you want
to set up a bank. Say yes and part of your money after every battle will go
to her.

Once you get up as far as you can, go northeast and you will find
Dark Cave. Inside, you can capture Pokemon like Zubat and Geodude. Once you
are at that point, go west until you hit Violet City. Once you go inside
the gatehouse, your other rival will come and give you the VS. Recorder.
After that, continue to Violet City.

Your first major city, and home to your first Gym. Here is the layout of the
land: In the northwest part is a gatehouse that leads to Route 36. You cannot
do much at this point because of a weird tree blocking the way. One thing
that you can get right now is HM06, Rock Smash from the big guy near the
tree. On Route 36, you can make a sidetrack to the Ruins of Alph.

A little different from the first game, the ruins are now locked and the only
way to activate them is to go to the one open ruin on the right side. Inside,
you will find a Kabuto puzzle. Unlike the first game, you now use the touch
screen to figure it out, and you have to rotate the pieces with your stylus.
Once you solve it, you will drop down into the ruins.
Inside, a researcher will talk to you and then give you the Unown Report, a
special Pokedex that records what Unown (A special psychic Pokemon exclusive
to the Ruins of Alph). It will only record them when you capture them, and
will list what the Unown mean in English. You can access the Unown Report via
the Key Items slot. Once you are ready, head down to find a ladder to get out.
At this point, the other ruins are sealed, so you cannot get all the Unown at
this point. Continue back to Violet city.
+===========+
|Violet City|
+===========+
A few things you can do before continuing. Talk to the man behind the Pokemart
and select the last option and he will twirl around and take you to the
trainer's school. He is the teacher there and is named Mr. E (Earl). Inside,
there is a man that will have you enter in something, and Earl will ask you
questions. Email me if you have any info.
If you have a Bellsprout, you can trade for a Onix in the lower right house
that is near the Pokemon center. It will be helpful for the upcoming battle
against the Gym Leader. You can capture a Bellsprout by going to Route 30,
although they are uncommon. Once you are ready, go north to Sprout Tower.

Once inside, go up the left ladder. On the second floor, you will start
fighting Pokemon like Rattata
You will be able to fight the sage's here, although like the name says most
of their Pokemon will be Bellsprout. Go right and then head down the ladder,
and then go left and up the ladder. On the next floor, go down and then right
to the next ladder.
You will then be on the top floor. Battle the monks and go forward. You will
then see your rival beat the head sage and then use a escape rope to exit. You
can also get a escape rope to the right of the head monk.
Talk to the head monk and he will battle you.

|Info: Depending on what starter you have, this can either be a very easy or |

a very hard battle. Cyndaquil can handle this fine, but Totodile will |
|
have problems with the two bellsprouts, and Chikorita will be weak
|
|
against Hoothoot. Its recommended that you have another Pokemon with |
|
you, such as Zubat/Pidgey for the Bellsprout and Onix/Geodude for the |
|
Hoothoot. The bellsprouts usually just use Vine Whip and occasionally |
|
growth, while Hoothoot likes to use Hypnosis and then Peck.

Once you beat him, you will get TM70, Flash. Either walk back down or use the
Escape Rope to exit

Now that you have

you are ready, go

done that, you can now challenge the gym leader. You will
to be about level 9 or above for the most part, and if you
you will want a additional Pokemon (Such as Onix). Once
to the Violet City Gym.

In order to use the lift to get to the top floor, you will need to have beaten
Sprout Tower and its leader. Once you do that, you will be able to go to the
top.
You can either avoid the trainers, or fight them, but you may want to for the
experience alone. Once you are ready talk to the gym leader Falkner to start
the battle.

|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Pidgey lv 9 (Normal/Flying)
|
|Pidgeotto lv 13 (Normal/Flying)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Falkner has increased his levels a little, now being a little tougher |
|
then he used to be. His Pidgey likes to use Sand Attack and then
|
|
tackle a whole bunch, so you may want to bring a Pokemon that can take|
|
it out quickly before it does sand attack too many times.
|
|
|
|
Pidgeotto, however, it the real problem. It likes to use Gust, Tackle,|
|
and Roost. If you have a Cyndaquil, Totodile or their evolutions, use |
|
them. If you choose Chikorita, you are going to have to be a little |
|
more crafty.
|
|
|
|
One strategy I used with Chikorita was to use Onix first and beat the |
|
Pidgey (Onix was at level 8), and then switch to Chikorita and use
|
|
Poisonpowder and switch back to Onix. As long as you have potions,
|
|
Pidgeotto will eventually run out of Roosts to use (Roost recovers
|

|
health and makes any flying Pokemon the normal type). Another strategy|
|
is to use a fighting move once it uses Roost.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat Falkner, you will get TM51 (Roost) and the Zephyr Badge. All
Pokemon you get in trades up to level 20 will now obay you, and you can now
use Rock Smash out of battle as well.
After you leave the Gym, Prof. Elm will call you and tell you to meet up with
his aide at the Pokemart. Go to the Pokemart and talk to the aide to get a
egg with Togepi in it. When you leave the Pokemart, one of the Kimono girls
from the original G/S/C will come up to you and talk about your egg and run
off.
Once you are ready, go south of the Pokemart until you reach Route 32.

Right as soon as you go down you will see a gatehouse to the west. It only
leads to the Ruins of Alph, so leave that alone for now. Go down a little more
and a man on the route will give you a Miracle Seed.
Not much else to do on the route. You can capture some higher level Bellsprout
and Mareep, a electric Pokemon that has a pretty decent evolution. At the end
is a Pokemon center and the entrance to Union Cave.
If you go south of the Pokemon center, you will find a rock you can break with
Rock Smash. Break it, and it will lead to a path that has a Shell Bell in a
item ball. The Shell Bell, when attached to a Pokemon, recovers HP every time
the Pokemon attacks.

Oh goodie, more Geodude, Rattata, and Zubat await! Anywho, once you are in,
head left and then down. Fight the mountain climber and then head right, then
down and fight the mountain climber. Go right and then down. You can either
fight the flamethrower man or ignore him, but head right and then down until
you fight a PokeManiac with a Slowpoke. After that, head to the right until
you find the exit to route 33.

Route 33 is a little different from when you remember it. It is now raining,
and the effects of Rain Dance are effective during the battle (Meaning water
moves do more and thunder is 100% accurate). There is one mountain climber
you can fight and some Apricorns to pick. Once you are ready, move on to
Azalea Town.

As soon as you get near the well, you see a Team Rocket member talk to a guy
and blocking the well. You cannot enter it yet, so go west. Head to the
Pokemon Center first to heal up and then look around the town.
As you can see, Team Rocket has invaded the town and won't let you enter the
gym. You can go west and find a gatehouse that will lead to the Ilex Forest,
but you cannot get far since you do not have cut. Once you are ready to
continue, go to the upper left house and talk to the man inside (Kurt, a
guy that makes Pokeballs out of the Apricorns you have been collecting). Once
you talk to him, he will run off to the well.
Head back to where the well is, and you will see that the rocket member is
gone. Go down the pathway and go up the ladder to enter the well.

At the bottom, you will find Kurt injured. Leave him be for now and head right
and enter the entrance. Keep following the path and fighting the Team Rocket
grunts until you reach the end. Once you are ready, talk to the green haired
Rocket Admin to fight him.

|Boss: Rocket Executive Proton
|

|Pokemon:
|
|Zubat lv 8
|
|Koffing lv 12
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: A pretty simple battle. His Zubat is your average one, so take it down|
|
with electric or rock attacks. His Koffing is a different story,
|
|
though. It has higher defense, so it might take a few turns to bring |
|
it down. Its attacks are nothing special though, just Smog, Tackle
|
|
and Smokescreen for the most part. Very easy battle.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
After you beat Executive Proton, Kurt will appear and take you back to his
house where he will give you a special Apricorn Pokeball called the Fast Ball
and his daughter will ask if you would like to register their phone number.
You have a choice: You can either face your Rival now or wait until after the
Gym. If your Pokemon are at least level 15 or above, go for it. Otherwise,
wait until afterwards. For now, lets go to the Gym for the second badge.

The gym has changed a little bit from what you remember. There are several
robotic Spinarak that you ride to get to the other side. However, they go
in a certain path that you have to follow. Go on the wrong path, and you
might have to fight a trainer.
Anywho, here is the solution to get to the Gym Leader:
1. Take the left Spinarak and fight the trainer
2. Take the lone Spinarak and fight the twins. Use the lever next to them
3. Ride the Spinarak back on the path and hit the next lever.
Once that is done, you will fight the gym leader, Bugsy.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Bugsy
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Scyther lv 17 (Flying/Bug)
|
|Metapod lv 15 (Bug)
|
|Kakuna lv 15 (Bug/Poison)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Bugsy may have the same team from back then, but the strategy is very |
|
different. One main change is he starts with Scyther. Reason being is |
|
Scyther now uses U-Turn a powerful attack that switches out with
|
|
another Pokemon after it is used. Kakuna and Metapod are both very
|
|
weak and only have the attacks they had when they were Weedle and
|
|
Caterpie respectively, so they are not hard to KO.
|
|
|
|
The real danger actually begins after both are knocked out, since he |
|
can now use U-Turn without having to switch out. Many times it will be|
|
a instant knockout, so be careful. Scyther also has Quick Attack, Leer|
|
and Focus Energy (Be careful if he uses Focus Energy). The best
|
|
Pokemon to use is fire and rock (Quilava, Geodude, and Onix are all |
|
good Pokemon to use). Pokemon with high resistance also helps as well.|
|
It might be a good idea to use some potions and wait until he runs
|
|
out of PP for U-Turn if he is too hard otherwise.
|
\----------------------------------------------------------------------------/
Once you beat Bugsy, you will get the Hive Badge and TM89. You can now also
use cut outside of battle and control traded Pokemon up to level 30. Once you
are ready, hit the switch next to Bugsy to go back to the entrance and back to
Azalea Town.

+===========+
|Azalea Town|
+===========+
If you have not fought your rival yet, go back to the Pokemon center first and
heal. Afterwards, go near the gatehouse to the west and your rival will show
up. Boss time!
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Rival
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Gastly lv 14 (Ghost/Poison)
|
|Zubat lv 16 (Poison/Flying)
|
|Quilava (If you choose Chikorita) lv 18 (Fire)
|
|Bayleef (If you choose Totodile) lv 18 (Grass)
|
|Croconaw (If you choose Cyndaquil) lv 18 (Water)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Your rival's Pokemon are a little higher then they were in the past. |
|
Its recommended that your team is at least level 15 before fighting |
|
him.
|
|
|
|
Gastly is a new Pokemon you have not fought yet, and is a ghost and |
|
Poison type. Normal attacks will not effect it, so ghost and psychic |
|
attacks work well. It has Levitate, so ground attacks are useless
|
|
against it.
|
|
|
|
Zubat is nothing new. Electric, Psychic or rock attacks all work well |
|
against it. Onix, Mareep, and Geodude are all good to use.
|
|
|
|
Finally, your rival's starter is your biggest threat. Unlike later
|
|
games, the Johto starters do not have a dual type, so you cannot
|
|
exploit any other weaknesses. Ground attacks are useful against
|
|
Quilava, grass and electric are good against Croconaw, and flying is |
|
effective against Bayleef. Onix/Geodude, Flaffy, and Pidgey are useful|
|
in that order.
|
\----------------------------------------------------------------------------/
Once you beat him, he will run back into the Ilex Forest. Head back to the
Pokemon Center and heal. You might want to pick up a few repels before you
head out, since the encounter rate is brutal at times. Once you are ready,
head west to the Ilex Forest.

Once you are ready, head up and you will talk to one of the people from the
Charcoal house from Azalea. He mentions that several of his Farfetch'd have
run off, and wants you to go get them.
The trick to capturing them is sneaking up behind them, and that becomes hard
if you step on the twigs. The first time you go to the right, you will always
step on the twigs and have the Farfetch'd notice you. After you do that, go
to the right and avoid the other set of twigs and go around the right path
until you are behind the Farfetch'd. Press A and you will capture it.
For the second one, chase it to the right side by going up the left and
pressing A. After that, go back down and on the right path. Step on the
first set of twigs to make the Farfetch'd look to the right, and then go up
and ignore the second patch and go down and press A.
After that, the owner will show up and give you HM01 Cut. Teach it to one of
your Pokemon and then cut down the tree that is in front of you. Also, if you
go back to Azalea Town and go to the building that is on the far right bottom,
talk to the assistant inside and he will give you the Charcoal item. It will
increase fire type moves when it is attached to a Pokemon.
Once you cut down the tree, go up and then up to the left. Then go right
and up. After that, you will meet one of the Kimono girls again. Press the top
option and your Pokemon will jump around and she will leave.
There is also a path on the right side that will lead you to a big guy that is
headbutting a tree. If you talk to him, he will teach any of your Pokemon
Headbutt, and he will do this any number of times that you ask.
Go left to find the exit. In the gatehouse, talk to the woman with the

Butterfree to get TM12 (Taunt).

Route 34 is full of various trainers to fight and new Pokemon to catch. One
of those Pokemon is Abra, a very hard to catch Pokemon unless you have sleep
moves. Its also a good route to gain experience on, since you will want your
Pokemon to be about level 16 or above.
Another landmark on this route is the daycare/breeding center. When you get
close, Ethan/Lyra will appear and talk to the Daycare couple. As it turns out,
they are Ethan/Lyra's grandparents. He/she will then take you inside and
introduce you to his/her grandma and give you their phone number phone number.
Once you exit, the old man will give you his phone number as well. You can now
use the center for leveling your Pokemon (1 step = one EXP point), or put two
Pokemon in and create a egg if they are compatible and a male and female
(Look at the breeding guide for more info).
Near the end of the route, if you go to the right, you can find TM63 (Embargo)
in the grass in a item ball out in the open.
Once you are ready, head north to Goldenrod City.

There is a bunch to do in Goldenrod, so lets get started.

|Goldenrod Department Store|
+==========================+
The first floor does not have much. There is a man near the service desk that
will give you several berries when you talk to him. You can either take the
elevator or the stairs. One thing you will notice is many of the items they
sell here are the exact same ones they sold in D/P/Pl, minus the furniture.

Once you are in the underground, you will find several trainers. There is also
a variety of different things that appear down there on certain days. The
Bargain Shops appears on Monday mornings, and has sell-able items that you can
buy for slightly lower.
The two hairdressers that raise your Pokemon's happiness appear on Tuesday,
Thursday, and Saturday for the older brother (Costs 500p, but you get more
happiness on your Pokemon), and the younger brother shows up on Sunday,
Wednesday, and Friday (300p, but less happiness gain).
Finally, the herb shop sells various bitter herbs that are cheaper then buying
them from a Pokemon shop, but decrease your Pokemon's happiness.
You can also take pictures by talking to the guy on the upper right side. You
can take a special picture dressed in a Team Rocket uniform.

+=====================+
|Goldenrod Game Corner|
+=====================+
The game corner side quest is slightly different depending on what version
you are playing. You can find the game corner above the Pokemon Center.
JAPANESE VERSION:
==============================================================================
In the game corner, you can find TM78 (Captivate). To play any of the slots,
you will need to go to the underground portion of Goldenrod that is south of
the game corner.
The slots are similar to how they were in the past: You can pay either 1, 2 or
3 coins and depending on how many you put in you can line them up several
ways. You can also get a bonus round if you line up 3 Pokeballs. The machines
also sometimes pay out more for match ups and is shown at the top.
==============================================================================
You can still get the Accessory Case by going to the underground, although you
can no longer find the Coin Case there.
NORTH AMERICAN AND PAL VERSIONS:
==============================================================================
The game corner has been completely been redesigned. The TM for Captivate is
no longer located there, and the building is now only a card table with a
NPC called Mr. Game with two old gentlemen that act as the receptionist. You
can't buy coins anymore, either. On the other hand, the mini-game no longer
requires you to spend coins. If you talk to Mr. Game, he will give you the
Coin Case.
The new game is a minesweeper-like game called Voltorb Flip. The game is a
bit complicated when you first do it, but it is basic once you figure it out:
There are 5 rows with 5 blocks in each, with a total of 25 blocks total for
the entire game. On the right side and on the bottom is the number of Voltorbs
that is on that row, and what the number adds up to. So, if a row has a 05
at the top and 0 Voltorb, that means that there is all 1s there.
You gain coins depending on how many multiples you can get. Say, for example
that you get 1 to begin with, you will get 1 coin. If you keep finding 1s,
then it will not go up, but if you find a 2x or 3x, you will double your coins
and get 2 or 3 coins.
If you find another 2x or 3x, the amount you have in the Coins Collected in
Current Game will be multiplied. However, if you run into a Voltorb, it will
be game over and you will lose any coins for the current game.
You can, however, collect any coins you have with the current game by pressing
the B button. Any coins you collected during your game will be added to your
coin case. You level up by finding all the 2 and 3 numbers on the board.
The best advise I have is to knock out the rows with 0 Voltorb first, and then
tackle the other rows. If you don't feel too brave, you can quit after taking
out the 0 voltorb rows and still have a decent amount of coins left over most
of the time.

Jeremy has this to add:


______________________________________________________________________________
"Flipping 2's and 3's is the only way to earn coins and clear the level, so a
lot of playing the game boils down to identifying squares that don't have a 2
or 3; skipping those squares improves your chances a lot.
If the number plus the voltorb count for a row or column totals to 5, don't
bother flipping any squares there, it's only 1's and Voltorbs. For example,
if the row says 4 / 1, then there is one Voltorb and 4 1's in that row.
If the number plus the voltorb count is bigger than 5, that tells you how
many "extras" or scorable points there are in that row or column. For
example, if the column says 4 / 2, the total is 6, one more than 5; this
tells you that there is one scoring square in that column (the column will be
two Voltorbs, two 1's and one 2).
However, it's not always that simple. When the number of "extras" gets
higher, you can't be sure how many scoring squares there are. For example, a
row that is 6 / 1 could be : (one voltorb, three 1's and one 3) or (one
voltorb, two 1's and two 2's).
The strategy I use is :
- First flip all the squares in rows and columns with 0 Voltorbs
- Identify the rows and columns that don't have any "extras" and use the memo
function to mark them all (I mark them as a "1" since that's the best that
is there, but you could mark them as being either "voltorb" or "1"). I
usually never flip these marked squares.
- Pick the row with the highest number of extras that are still unknown (if
you're greedy) or pick the row with extras that has the lowest number of
Voltorbs (if you're cautious).
- Pick a column in the same way, and flip the square for your chosen row and
column. This isn't guaranteed to be safe, sometimes you will lose when you
do this. It's a matter of guessing and playing the odds; if you do it
right it will be safe more often than not.
- Repeat the above steps as you go, using logic to figure out rows or columns
which only have 1's and Voltorbs left, and flipping the squares that seem
most likely to have a scoring number. Sometimes I can figure out exactly
where some of the Voltorbs are, and I use the memo function to label those.
I tend to start a game being greedy and get more conservative as I go.
- When things go well, the last few moves are sure things. If I've got a
good score but there are no sure things at the end, it's time to quit and
start a new game that will hopefully be easier."
==============================================================================
You can get the following from the attendants on the right:

\________________________________/
If you have someone you can link up with, get a Abra. You might also want to
consider a Dratini, since it will be one of the few Dragon Pokemon for awhile
and a rather powerful one at that.
+=======+
|The GTS|
+=======+
Located on the left side of Goldenrod, the GTS is similar to its Platinum
incarnation. So much so that it connects to the same server at D/P/Pl. You
can either put your Pokemon up to trade or request a similar one. You will
need to have seen the Pokemon in your Pokedex to request or search for it
on the GTS.
+============+
|Other Things|
+============+
There is a tent on the upper right side of Goldenrod with a old man inside.
He will allow you to change your Pokemon's nickname if you talk to him.
If you go on the right path in the middle and go down, you can find the
Cycling Shop. Talk to the man inside and he will give you a free bike.
It is a little different then its D/P/Pl incarnation, since it does not have
two speeds and is hard to turn even though it is at normal speed.
Once you capture or defeat the Sudowoodo, you can buy Mulch at the flower
shop (Growth Mulch, Stable Mulch, Damp Mulch, and Gooey Mulch for 200p
each).
There is a lady in a house to the right of the Department Store that will let
you know how your Pokemon like you. This is handy if you have a Pokemon you
want to evolve from a happiness evolution.
If you go to the gym, you will find a woman blocking the way. She tells you
that Whitney, the Gym leader, is at the Radio Tower on the west side of
Goldenrod. Head to the radio tower and talk to the attendant next to Whitney
(The red haired girl) and answer the following:
Question #1: Can you check the Town Map with your Pokegear?

- Yes
Question #2: NIDORINA can only be female. True?
- Yes
Question #3: Kurt, the Poke Ball Creator, uses apricots as Ingredients?
- No
Question #4: It's impossible to use a TM on MAGIKARP, True?
- Yes
Question #5: In Professor Oak's popular show, Pokemon Talk, is he on with
Marie?
- No
Once you do that, you will win the Radio Card expansion and Whitney will
return to the Gym. You can now enter the gym and challenge her.

A bit of new and old. The gym is the same layout it was back in its G/S/C
days, but it is now a gigantic maze. The fastest way to get to Whitney is
the following:
- First go up the stairs you see when you first enter. Go to the right and
down the other set of stairs.
- Go right and up until you fight a trainer. Then go up and then right. Ignore
the stairs and go through the tunnel.
- Go fight the two trainers and go up through the other tunnel to Whitney.

|Pokemon:
|
|Clefairy lv 17 (Normal)
|
|Milktank lv 19 (Normal)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: The same levels you fought her at in GSC, Whitney has not changed too |
|
much. Her Clefairy can use Mimic to learn the last attack you did,
|
|
Doubleslap, and Metronome to do a random attack.
|
|
|
|
Her Milktank is the same as always. It knows Attract to make it hard |
|
for male Pokemon to hit, the powerful Stomp attack, Milk Drink to
|
|
recover health, and Rollout. Rollout is her most dangerous attack,
|
|
since it gains power every time it is used and only goes back to
|
|
normal if it misses.
|
|
|
|
Best thing to do is to bring a fighting type Pokemon or a Pokemon that|
|
can use fighting type moves. Ghosts also work well to a point,
|
|
although Rollout is a rock type attack, so be careful of using flying |
|
Pokemon.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
After you beat her, Whitney will start crying and won't give you the badge.
When you try to leave, one of the trainers will stop you and tell her to talk
to Whitney again. She will then give you the Plain Badge and TM45 Attract.
+===============+
|Goldenrod City |
+===============+
Once you have the Plain Badge, go to the flower house and get the Squirt
Bottle from the lady. You will need it for later. Go to the Pokemon Center and
heal, and then head north to Route 35.

There are a couple of things you can do on this route. There is a man to the
right that will take a picture of you and your team if you say Yes. You can
do this as many times as you want. Keep going on the route and fighting the
trainers. Once you are near the end, you can finally capture some Pokemon.
You can get Nidoran male and female on this route.
Once you hit the grass part head right, fight the trainer, and cut down the

tree. Continue up and then go to the right some more and you will eventually
find the tree that was blocking your way earlier. By now, you have reached
Route 36.
Alternatively, you can keep going straight and head to the National Park

Ah, the National Park. Depending on what day it is, you can enter in the
Bug-Catching Contest. On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, you can register
at one of the gatehouses to enter the competition.
There are several decent items here as well. If you go in a hole in the gate
on the upper right side and go on the left path, you will find TM 28 (Dig),
and going on the right path will have a Sooth Bell, a great tool for making
Pokemon that evolve via Happiness get there much quicker.
Otherwise, the place is full of trainers. Once you are ready, continue east
to Route 36.

|Sudowoodo
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Level 20
|
|Rock
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: As some of you might be aware from playing GSC and D/P/Pl, Sudowoodo |
|
is not a grass Pokemon but actually a Rock type. It has Flail, Low
|
|
Kick, Rock Throw, and Mimic. While it is not very strong, its defenses|
|
are rather high, making it rather hard to capture without a decent
|
|
water or grass Pokemon (Paralyze and Sleep also work well here).
|
|
Beware of his flail attack though, since it will do a ton of damage |
|
if its HP is low.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
It is a lv 20 Sudowoodo, something you might want to consider catching since
it is the only one in this game (You can get plenty of them in D/P/Pl though
so it is up to you). If you do not capture it now, it will re-appear after you
beat the Elite Four.
After you do that, a girl that is near
key item, the main way to grow berries
at a time, and she also gives you some
that, go left and then up and you will

the tree will give you the Berry Pots


in Johto. You can grow up to 4 of them
berries to go along with it. After
hit route 37.

Not much to do here besides fight some trainers and capture some Pokemon. If
you do not have a fire Pokemon, its recommended that you hunt for a Growlithe
or Vulpix on this route (Depending on your version). Once you are done, continue
up to Ecruteak City,

Head to the Pokemon Center first. When you do, you will meet Bill, the man who
build the PC Storage system you use to store Pokemon. If you go back to his
house in Goldenrod, you can get a lv 5 Eevee.
If you go inside the house that is to the left of the Pokemon Center, the man
inside will give you the Dowsing MCHN, formerly known as the Itemfinder in
GSC. It has been upgraded and now has touchscreen support.
Once you get the Dowsing MCHN, look near the water fountain on the right of
Bell Tower on the right side of Ecruteak. You can find a hidden Rare Candy
near there.
If you go into the house above the Pokemon Center, you will see one of the
Kimono girls talking to a team rocket member. Go up and fight the rocket, all
he has is a lv 12 Koffing. After you beat him, the rocket will run off. Once
you get off the stage, the man sitting in the audience will give you HM 03
(Surf), although you cannot use it at the moment since you do not have the
badge.
You cannot enter the Bell Tower (Formerly the Tin Tower) at the moment, but
you can get your picture taken in front of the entrance. Once you are ready
to continue, head to the upper left corner and enter the burned tower.

As soon as you enter, you will see Eusine from Pokemon Crystal. He will
approach you, but not battle. You will also see Morty in the tower as well.
There are a few wild Pokemon, such as Koffing if you want to capture them.
Once you are ready, go near the ladder and your rival will challenge you.

|Gastly lv 20 (Ghost/Poison)
|
|Magnemite lv 18 (Electric/Steel)
|
|Zubat lv 20 (Flying/Poison)
|
|Quilava lv 22 (Fire) *If you choose Chikorita
|
|Bayleef lv 22 (Grass) *If you choose Totodile
|
|Croconaw lv 22 (Water) *If you choose Cyndaquil
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Your rival's Pokemon has gone up a little bit from the last time you |
|
fought him. Gastly is the same as always, although it now has Confuse |
|
Ray. If you have a Pokemon that can use Bite or any other Dark/Ghost/ |
|
Psychic attacks, use them. Magnemite is fairly dangerous, since it
|
|
can confuse you will Supersonic, attack you with Thunderbolt, and take|
|
off 20 HP every turn with Sonic Boom. Ground attacks work best, but |
|
fire and fighting are also effective.
|
|
|
|
Zubat has Bite and Supersonic, so take it out with a Electric or Rock |
|
Pokemon. Finally, his starter is his highest level Pokemon at level |
|
22. Use the same strategy you used in your last battle with him.
|
|
|
|
Recommended Pokemon include: Geodude/Onix with Rock and Ground attacks|
|
Kadabra with Psychic attacks, Flaffy with Electric Attacks, and any |
|
opposite type that can take out your rival's team.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat your rival, he will run off. Once he does that, you can explore
the top floor a little more. There are several firebreathers that you can
battle, and the Koffing are good EXP if you need to get any Pokemon up to
level 20. Once you are ready, head down the ladder to the floor below.

Once you are at the bottom, go near the legendary dogs and they will each run
off in different directions. Eusine will come down and talk for a little bit
and then leave. Once you are ready, leave the burned tower.
Once you are ready, head to the Ecruteak City Gym. Make sure your Pokemon are
all above level 20, preferably around lv 22 or up.

A little different then the GSC, Morty's gym now has a visible walkway.
However, the trick is that you are going to fight pretty much every trainer
in the gym. Once you beat them, their light goes out, making it hard to get
to the end. If you fall into the pit, you are warped back to the beginning

of the gym. The good thing is once you do step in the pit, the trainer's light
comes back on. Once you get to the end, save and fight Morty.

|
|Haunter lv 21 (Ghost/Poison)
|
|Haunter lv 23 (Ghost/Poison)
|
|Gengar lv 25 (Ghost/Poison)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Morty, who was one of the toughest gym leaders in the original GSC, |
|
keeps his position in HG/SS. If you are unprepared, you are going to |
|
have major issues.
|
|
|
|
First, Gastly. It does not use too many attacks, but its biggest
|
|
threat is Curse: A attack that halves its HP and takes away some HP |
|
every turn. It cancels out if you switch out, but it likes to use
|
|
Mean Look to keep you into battle. Finally, it uses Spite to lower
|
|
your attack PP slowly.
|
|
|
|
The level 21 is another threat. It likes to use Hypnosis first, and |
|
then it likes to use Dream Eater. It also has Night Shade, a attack |
|
that does damage equal to your level, and Curse again. Best thing to |
|
do is have a bunch of Awakenings. Morty also has a second Haunter, so |
|
take care of it the same way you did this one.
|
|
|
|
His Gengar, however, is his biggest threat. Its main attack is Shadow |
|
Ball, a very powerful ghost attack. He can also use Sucker Punch as |
|
well. Best thing to do is to use a normal Pokemon to cancel out his |
|
Shadow Ball attack.
|
|
|
|
So, what is recommended? Normal Pokemon are all good to use, since
|
|
they have total resistance against Ghost Pokemon. The double-edge to |
|
this is normal attacks do not hit Ghost Pokemon, so you will need to |
|
have other element attacks on your Pokemon (The goldenrod department |
|
store is a good place for them). Psychic and Dark attacks work well, |
|
so Pokemon that have Confusion or Bite are good. Butterfree learns
|
|
Confusion, and Zubat and several others learn Bite. Because they are |
|
part poison, you can not put Poison condition on them, so you might |
|
want to Paralyze or put his team to Sleep. Also, because they all have|
|
the levitate ability, you cannot use ground attacks again his Pokemon.|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
After the battle, Morty will give you the Fog Badge, which lets you control
traded Pokemon up to level 50 and allows you to use Surf outside of battle. He
also gives you TM30, Shadow Ball.
Head back to the Pokemon Center and heal. Now, for some other stuff to do. If
you go east to Route 42, you will find a cave and some water you can surf
across. Next to the cave is TM65, Shadow Claw. Its a decent TM, so you might
want to pick it up. When you go near a cave, a mountain climber will come out
and give you HM04, Strength. You can surf on the other side and reach Mahogany
Town sooner then normal and do the Rocket Hideout + Gym there early, but for
now we will wait on that.
There are now a few things you can do with Surf. Here are a list of places
with areas with decent items that you can get.

+================+
|Cherrygrove City|
+================+
In Cherrygrove City, there is some water on the left side you can surf across
to find a small island with a man on it. Talk to him and he will give you the
Mystic Water item, which powers up Water-type moves.
+========+
|Route 30|
+========+
On the right side of Route 30 at the very beginning coming from Cherrygrove is
a pond you can surf on. Go down and you can find a Nugget that is invisible by
pressing A (Use the Dowsing MCHN if you have trouble finding it).
+===========+
|Violet City|
+===========+
Near the Sprout Tower is some water you can surf across. If you surf on the
left side, you will find a PP Up. If you surf on the right, you will find a
Rare Candy.
+=============+
|Slowpoke Well|
+=============+
You will need both Strength and Surf for this. Go back to the area where you
fought the Rocket Executives and you will find a boulder on the left side that
you can push. Go down the path and you will find a area you can surf on. Surf
across it and go down the ladder to reach a new area of Slowpoke Well.
There are two paths in this room that you can surf on. The left one will lead
you to a ledge where you will find a Researcher who will give you the Kings
Rock. The Kings Rock is a rather decent item that makes your opponent Pokemon
occasionally flinch when you use a attack, but its main purpose is to evolve
Poliwhirl and Slowpoke into Politoed and Slowking respectively when you do a
link trade with the King's Rock attached.
The right side has a item ball with TM 18 (Rain Dance). Rain Dance both
increases the power of water moves and makes Thunder 100% accurate.

Route 34 has several things of interest. On the left side of the route is a
thin water path that leads down. Swim down and you will eventually find a
item ball with a Nugget inside.
Keep going down and you will find a group of three Ace Trainers. The first two
will attack you in a double battle, and the third will have several high level
Pokemon for this early in the game (26-28). After you beat Ace Trainer Kate,
she will give you the Power Herb.
+========+
|Route 35|
+========+
If you surf across on Route 35, you will find a Green Apricorn tree and a
hidden nugget if you keep going up. Use the Dowsing MHCN to find it.
Once you are ready, head west to Route 38

A rather big route with a bunch of new Pokemon. If you need a electric and
steel Pokemon, you can capture Magnemite now. Another new one is Tauros, a
very strong Normal type Pokemon. Also, if you do no have a Pokemon that can
surf, you might want to get one now. You can also get Miltank on this route
as well (Same Pokemon Whitney uses earlier). Farfetch'd is another new
Pokemon, but it is rather weak so you might only want it for completion.
Outside of fighting trainers, there is not much else to do. Head left to
Route 39

Once you go on Route 39, a old man named Baoba will approach you. He is the
former warden of the Kanto Safari Zone, and he is setting one up in Johto.
When you are done talking to him, he will give you his number and let you know
when it opens.
You now have several options: You can either go to the MooMoo Ranch for a side
quest, or head straight down to Olivine. The MooMoo ranch is on the very top
of the route, the one with all the Miltank in the front. You can get your
picture taken there if you want.
If you go inside, you will find a sick Miltank. To cure it, you will need to
feed it 5 Oran Berries. Once you do, you will get the Seal Case and the
ability to buy some MooMoo milk for 500p. There is also a invisible PP Up
near the Milktank on the Moomoo ranch.
You can also find TM 60 (Drain Punch) by going directly south of the MooMoo
Ranch and picking up the item ball on the left. There is also a invisible
nugget nearby.
Once you are ready, head south down to Olivine.

Once you walk past the gym, your rival will appear and talk to you for a
little bit and then leave, saying that the gym leader is at the light house.
You can do a couple of things in Olivine. If you go to the house above the
Pokemon Center, you can get the Good Rod. Go down the path next to the
Pokemart and head up and you will find two houses. If you have the seal case,
a girl in the right house will give you a couple of seals. In the house on
the left is a fisherman who will trade you a Voltorb with a Cheri Berry for
a Krabby. You can fish for one with the good rod in Olivine, so they are not
too hard to find.
If you surf on the right side of Olivine, you will find TM 57 (Charge Beam)
in a item ball on a small bit of land.
Once you are ready, head east to the lighthouse.

Sort of a mini-dungeon of sorts, the Olivine Lighthouse is filled to the brim
with trainers. The first time you come, you will not be able to use the
elevator to go to the top, so you will need to take the stairs. One downside
is that it is hard to avoid trainers, so you will need to keep your Pokemon
at top health. If needed, head back to the Pokemon Center if your HP is
getting too low.

On the fourth floor, go left and fight the lass and then go left some more to
find TM87, Swagger. Once you are ready, head outside and you will be on a 3D
ledge. On the left side is a item ball with a Rare Candy in it. Head inside
once you are ready and you will be on the third floor.
On the other side of the third floor, fight the sailor to the right and get
the Ether and continue up to the ladder, and then up the next one up to the
fifth floor. Fight the sailor and continue, and then continue to the right to
the next ladder.
On the top floor, you will meet Jasmine, the Gym leader. She made a brief
cameo in D/P/Pl as well. Like in the originals, she asks you to go to Cianwood
and get the SecretPotion for the Ampharos. Once she is done, she will open the
door and allow you to take the elevator down.
Now head to the Pokemon Center and heal up. Make sure you have a Pokemon that
can surf (If not, you can catch something with your Good Rod or can catch a
Tauros on Route 38). Once you are ready, head to Route 40.

Not much to do on the land version of Route 40. There is a gatehouse that
leads to a new area later on, but you can't do anything in it right now.
Use surf and start heading south. There is one TM you can find on a island
while surfing (Pluck), and there is a hidden Hyper Potion that is right
next to it.
There is not much else here to do besides capture some Tentacool and fight
trainers, so keep going south until you can go further and head to Route 41.

When you first enter, you will see a Whirlpool. You can't do anything with it
now, so leave it alone. You can also fine Mantine and Tentacruel on this
route on rare occasions. They are usually higher level then your base Pokemon,
so you might be able to find them with a repel. Keep going west and you will
find Cianwood City.

A small island town with a gym, there is not much to do at this point. You can
go to the shop that is next to the Pokemon Center and get the SecretPotion for
the Lighthouse.
You can get a Shuckle from the house to the left of the Cianwood Pharmacy for
free if you talk to the guy inside. It is carrying Berry Juice with it, a
special recover item for Pokemon. Head up north and you will find your first
sighting of Suicune and it will run off. Eusine will then come up and then
challenge you to a battle
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Eusine
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Drowzee lv 25 (Psychic)
|
|Haunter lv 25 (Ghost/Poison)
|
|Electrode lv 27 (Electric)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Consider Eustine a warm up for the Cianwood Gym. Its recommended that |
|
your Pokemon are at least lv 24 or so before fighting him. Drowzee is |
|
his biggest pain in the ass, since it has Disable and Hypnosis. Once |
|
it does put you to sleep, he will use Dream Eater. He also has
|
|
Confusion, so be careful. Dark, bug and ghost attacks work best, so |
|
use a Pokemon that has bite or shadow ball.
|
|
|
|
Haunter is his second Pokemon, but is pretty wimpy. It only comes with|
|
Mean Look to lock you into battle, and Lick. Psychic and other Ghost |
|
attacks work best against it.
|
|
|
|
Finally, there is Electrode. He has screech to greatly lower your
|
|
defense, and then Thunder to finish you off. He can also use Sonicboom|
|
to always hit you with 20 damage. Best Pokemon to use is a ground type|
|
with ground moves, like Onix or Gravler.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat him, he will run off. There is not much else to do after that.
There is a new cave that leads to several of the new areas of HG/SS, but you
cannot access it at this point. Once you are ready, head to the Cianwood Gym.

A little different then GSC, Cianwood's gym now involves a waterfall puzzle.
Chuck is in the middle, and there are two cliffs on each side. Each cliff has
a bunch of trainers you will need to fight, and sometimes they will block your
way. If they do, you might have to leave the gym so they reset. Once you get
to the top of the left side, press the switch and the water will turn off.
Talk to Chuck and he will fight you
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Chuck
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Primeape lv 29 (Fighting)
|
|Poliwrath lv 31 (Water/Fighting)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Even though Chuck may only have two Pokemon, they are both at a very |
|
high level and can be a real pain in the ass if you are under-leveled.|
|
Its recommended that you are at least level 26-28 or above before you |
|
fight him.
|
|
|
|
His first Pokemon is Primeape, which serves more to annoy you. It uses|
|
Leer to lower your defense, and then Double Team to make it hard to |
|
hit you. For attacks, it can use Rock Slide against fliers to make
|
|
quick work of them, and Focus Punch to do massive damage. The trick |
|
to Focus Punch is he needs to not be attacked before he uses it, or |
|
else it misses and he loses his turn. If he is about to use it, use |
|
a attack on him. Flying attacks work best, but it might be hard to
|
|
hit him with Rock Slide. Ghost attacks work well for dodging his Focus|
|
Punch move.
|
|
|
|
Poliwrath, however, is his main fighter. He likes to use Hypnosis to |
|
knock you out, and then use Surf, Body Slam, and Focus Punch to slowly|
|
whittle down your HP. Like Primeape, use a attack before he uses focus|
|
punch and you should be OK. Fortunately, you can use flying Pokemon on|
|
Poliwrath with no major issues, and ghost types work well once again. |
|
|
|
Recommended Pokemon include: Pidgeotto at lv 26 or above, Golbat with |
|
Wing Attack at lv 27 or above, Haunter at lv 25 or above, Bayleef at |
|
lv 28 or above. Good attacks to use are Wing Attack, Thunder against |
|
Poliwrath, Razor Leaf (Against Poliwrath).
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat him, he will give you the Storm Badge (Allows you to use fly
outside of battle and TM01, Focus Punch.
When you leave the gym, Chuck's Wife will give you HM02, Fly. Once you are
ready, fly back to Olivine City.
+============+

|Olivine City|
+============+
Now that you have the SecretPotion from the Cianwood Pharmacy, head to the
lighthouse and take the elevator to the top. Give Jasmine the SecretPotion and
she will give it to the Ampharos and it will flash with light and Jasmine will
return to the gym. Take the elevator back down and head to it. Once you get
to the bottom, you will receive a phone call saying that the Safari Zone west
of Cianwood is now open.
____
//J028|_____________________________________________________________________\\
||
Olivine Gym
||
\\__________________________________________________________________________//
Not much to really do. You see a few trainers come up and talk to you, but in
a rare case they will not battle you. Head up to Jasmine and talk to her to
battle.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Jasmine
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Magnemite lv 30 (Steel/Electric)
|
|Magnemite lv 30 (Steel/Electric)
|
|Steelix lv 35 (Steel/Ground)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Depending on your current team, Jasmine can either be the easiest or |
|
hardest Gym Leader depending on your team. Steel Pokemon are a rather |
|
hard bunch to hit and have few weaknesses, so you need to have a plan.|
|
Fire Pokemon are its main weakness, so if you do not have one, it is |
|
recommended that you go catch a Vulpix/Growlithe on Route 36, the
|
|
route that is south of Ecruteak. Also, you will want to have a Ground |
|
Pokemon for her two Magnemite, such as Onix or Gravler.
|
|
|
|
First up are her two Magnemite. They are identical in level and in
|
|
moves, so there is not much difference. Usually, they like to use
|
|
Supersonic to confuse you, and then Thunder Wave to paralyze. Then
|
|
she will use Thunderbolt or Sonic Boom against you. The best way to |
|
counter this is to have a ground Pokemon, like the ones mentioned
|
|
above and have them use moves like Magnitude. Fire also works well
|
|
against her, so Quilava/Flareon/Vulpix/Growlithe are all good ones
|
|
to look at.
|
|
|
|
Finally, there is her Steelix, which is her worst Pokemon. Not only |
|
does it have high defense, but it is at a very high level at lv 35. |
|
It usually likes to use screech to lower your defense, and then use |
|
Sandstorm to damage any non steel/rock/ground Pokemon, and after that |
|
use Iron Tail and Rock Throw over and over. Your best bet is a fire |
|
or water Pokemon, since his defense is too high to take advantage of |
|
his fighting or ground weakness. Surf works extremely well, so the
|
|
starters Croconaw and Quilava are both good ones to use.
|
|
|
|
Recommended Pokemon include: Onix/Gravler at lv 30, Quilava/Vulpix/ |
|
Growlithe at lv 30, Croconaw/Feraligatr (For Steelix) at lv 30. Any |
|
Pokemon with Magnitude for the Magnemite, and any Pokemon with Surf or|
|
fire moves for Steelix.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat her, you will get the Mineral Badge, which allows you to use

Pokemon up to lv 70. She also gives you TM23, Iron Tail.


Now that you have the Mineral Badge, head back to Ecruteak and head east to
Route 42.

Like before, there is not too much you can do at the moment in Mt. Mortar,
so lets skip it for now. Your real goal is to swim east over to the other
side. Once you swim over to the middle isle, you will see a tree that can
be cut down, some Apricorns, and Suicune. As soon as you cut it down, Suicune
will escape and Eustine will come talk to you and leave. Once you are ready,
keep swimming east and you will find some grass and a few trainers. There
are a few new things you can capture, such as Spearow in all versions and
Mankey in HeartGold. Keep going east and you will eventually reach Mahogany
Town.

* Note that you can only buy the above once you clear the Goldenrod Radio
Tower later in the game.
A rather small Town, there is not much you can do at this point. The strange
shop above the gym is selling TinyMushrooms for 500p, Pokeballs for 200p, and
Potions for 300p. Considering how far you are, most of those items are fairly
low level. Also notice the weird tree to the right of the shop, that becomes
important later.
You also cannot enter the gym at this point, so leave that alone for now. If
you try to leave east, a man will offer to sell you a RageCandyBar for 300p.
The main difference is instead of being a item that restores health, it is
now a key item that you use much later in the game. You won't be able to go
east for some time, so the only way to go is North to route 43.

A rather long route. You can either go through the tall grass at the
beginning, or be forced to pay a 1000p toll if you go through the gatehouse.
This is a good place for EXP, not only from the massive amount of trainers

here, but the wild Pokemon. You can now capture a Girafarig, a normal/psychic
Hybrid that has resistance to ghost attacks, and Venonat, a Bug/Poison
Pokemon.
Keep going north until you hit the Lake of Rage.

When you get to the Lake of Rage, you will find that it is raining rather
hard, and there are several people at the shore looking out towards the lake.
You will then see a moving Red Gyarados in the water. Use surf and head to
where it is at and battle it.
The Red Gyarados is unique, since it is one of the few encounters that will
always be Shiny. It is at a rather respectable lv 30 and will use its special
Intimidate ability when you first encounter it. It knows Leer, Twister, and
Dragon Rage, so be careful. You will want to bring some Great Balls, and want
to lower it as low as possible. Even though it is raining, be careful about
using Thunder, since it can knock it out almost immediately due to its dual
Water/Flying types.
Once you do beat the Red Gyarados, you will get the Red Scale, a item you
can trade with Mr. Pokemon north of Cherrygrove for a EXP Share. Head back to
shore and you will see a familiar man with a Dragonite looking at a sign. He
is Lance, the Elite Four member from Red/Blue/Yellow/FireRed/LeafGreen. He
will mention that the Magikarp of this lake were forced to evolve, and there
should be something in Mahogany that is causing it. He will then fly off
toward the weird shop in Mahogany. You can either follow him, or make a quick
stop at Cherrygrove and get the EXP Share, since it will be useful for
the battles ahead.
Head back to Mahogany and head to the shop. You will see Lance tearing the
place apart looking for the entrance switch. He will then find it under the
big statue. Once you are ready, head under to the Rockets Hideout.
____
//J033|_____________________________________________________________________\\
||
Rocket Hideout
||
\\__________________________________________________________________________//

______
|B1 |
______________________________________________________________________________
One thing you will notice as soon as you enter is the giant Persian statues
on the walls. You have no choice but to walk in front of the first one,
which triggers two rocket grunts. The first one has a lv 17 Drowsee and the
Second will have a lv 16 Zubat and a Rattata at lv 18. There are a bunch more
on this floor and each will activate a Rocket Grunts. You can turn them off,
however. Follow the path west a little bit until you can go down, and then
head down until you find a scientist near a PC. Battle him (He has three lv
20 Magnemite), and Press A on the PC he was near to turn off the statues.
There are two possible paths to the stairs going down: you can either go east
and then down and then right to find a teleporter (Teleporter sends you back
to the beginning), and the stairs going down. The second way is to re-trace
your steps back to where the Persian statues are, and then go west until you
find a Rocket Grunt. Beat the grunt and then go down. You will then notice
a interesting new trap: Various wild Pokemon now appear on certain floors.
You can find either Voltorb, Geodude, or Koffing. You can either run, beat
them, or capture them.
Once you are on the other side of the traps, you will find the same teleport
and stairs mentioned earlier. Go down to B2.
______________________________________________________________________________
______
|B2 |
______________________________________________________________________________
When you head downstairs, you will find Lance who will then heal your Pokemon.
There is not much you can do on this floor for now: The door to the generator
is shut for now, and there are a few grunts on this floor. Keep going right
until you find the stairs for B3.
______________________________________________________________________________
______
|B3 |
______________________________________________________________________________
When you first enter B3, Lance will just get done interrogating a Rocket
Grunt, who gives him the first part of the password for a door that is needed
later on. You will need to find the second code, which is on the same floor.
In the big computer room in the center, fight the female rocket grunt (She has
a lv 18 Ekans and a lv 18 Gloom). When you beat her, she will give you the
second code
Before continuing, lets get some of the items in this room. There is a item
ball on the left side of the center room that has TM 49 (Snatch). The
right side of the center room has a Full Heal. Going to the lower left corner
of the room has a scientist and a rocket grunt as well as a X Special and
Protein.
Once you are ready, go to the upper right corner to find the staircase going
up a alternate route on B2.
______________________________________________________________________________

________________
|B2 Alt Route |
______________________________________________________________________________
For now, keep going left and you will eventually have to fight a rocket grunt.
He has a 3 lv 17 Rattata. Head down the stairs to end up on a alternate part
of B3. There is another staircase further down that leads to a room with TM46.
Once you are ready, head east toward the door. When you get close, your Rival
will appear and mention that he battled with Lance and lost pretty badly. He
then runs off without fighting you. If your rival did not come up to you, that
means that you do not have both codes.
Once you are ready, press A on the door and it will open. The man inside
presents himself as Giovanni, but in reality he is Petrel, a Team Rocket
Executive. He will then fight you
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Team Rocket Executive Petrel
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Zubat lv 22 (Poison/Flying)
|
|Koffing lv 22 (Poison)
|
|Raticate lv 24 (Normal)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Petrel is only slightly more tougher then your average Rocket Grunt, |
|
so he should not be too much of a problem. His Zubat has Astonish,
|
|
Bite, Wing Attack, and Confuse Ray, so use a Pokemon with Thunder or |
|
Ice attacks against him (If you got Blizzard from the Goldenrod
|
|
Department Store, that works well). Psychic Pokemon might want to be |
|
careful because of Astonish and Bite.
|
|
|
|
His Koffing can be annoying, since it has Smog, Smokescreen, Assurance|
|
and Selfdestruct. Assurance can be very powerful if your Pokemon is |
|
too fast, since it does double damage if Koffing was attacked that
|
|
turn. It likes to use Selfdestruct when it gets close to dying, so
|
|
finish it off quickly. Its levitate means that ground type attacks do |
|
not work well on it, so Psychic moves are the best.
|
|
|
|
Finally, there is Raticate. It has Hyper Fang, Sucker Punch, Scary
|
|
Face, and Crunch. Hyper Fang can be deadly against lower level Pokemon|
|
so be careful. Fighting moves work best, although be careful about
|
|
using Ghost Pokemon, since Crunch and Sucker Punch are both dark type |
|
moves.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat him, he will run off, and his Murkrow will talk to you and then
run off as well. You now have to tail the Murkrow back to the door on B3 that
was locked earlier. Once you do, it will say the password and then run off.
As soon as you do this, Rocket Admin Arianna and a Grunt will show up to
challenge you, but Lance will show up as well and aid you in a double battle.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Rocket Executive Arianna and Rocket Grunt
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Arbok lv 25 (Poison)
|
|Gloom lv 25 (Poison/Grass)
|
|Murkrow lv 27 (Dark/Flying)
|

|Drowzee lv 18 (Psychic)
|
|Grimer lv 20 (Poison)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: A rather interesting battle. Arianna has rather high level Pokemon, |
|
but Lance is about twice as strong as you currently are, having a lv |
|
40 Dragonite that can wipe out most of Arianna's and the Grunt's
|
|
teams. For the most part, you can just sit back and let Lance do most |
|
of the work while you get the EXP. Only downside is the Dragonite
|
|
likes to use Fly most of the time, so it takes two turns to use. It |
|
will also occasionally use Thunder as well.
|
|
|
|
As for the Pokemon, her Arbok has Glare, Crunch, Wrap and Poison
|
|
Sting. The only one that might cause trouble is Glare, which paralyzes|
|
you. Gloom has Sweet Scent, Mega Drain, Acid, and Sleep Powder, so it |
|
likes to put you to sleep most of the time. Murkow has Night Shade, |
|
Wing Attack, Astonish and Pursuit. A good ground Pokemon like Gravler |
|
or Onix can take out Arbok and Gloom (Although be careful of Gloom
|
|
and her grass moves). A flyer can also work well on Gloom as well.
|
|
Murkrow can be taken out with electric or ice attacks.
|
|
|
|
As for the grunt, he is more for support. His Drowsee has Disable,
|
|
Confusion, Headbutt, and Poison Gas, while his Grimer has Mud-Slap, |
|
Disable, Minimize, and Sludge. They like to use Disable a lot, so
|
|
don't be surprised if you have to use other moves most of the time. |
|
Sludge and Poison Gas also Poison, so be careful of that.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
After you beat them, Arianna and the rest of the grunts then abandon the base.
Lance then tells you that you have to destroy the generator by knocking out
the Electrode that are powering it.
The Electrode are all at lv 23, and can either be knocked out or caught. If
you run from battle, they will still be there. Once you knock out or capture
them, Lance will thank you and give you HM05, Whirlpool, as a reward. He will
then mention his battle with your Rival, and then walk off.
Once you head outside, you will see that the weird tree has been damages and
now shows the remains of a broken Transmitter. Head to the Pokemon Center and
heal, and then head to the gym.

While similar to his old Gym, Pryce's layout is now sectioned off into three
different rooms. Fortunately, it is not as hard as the Snowpoint Gym, so you
should not have as much trouble against him.
Anywho, as far as the puzzles go, it involves sliding ice. Similar to the
Snowpoint gym in that you have to slide in a particular direction to get to
your destination. The trick is the ice blocks, which you usually have to press
together to make it solid enough to hold you. For your convenience, here is
the solutions for each room
Room 1:
-Go up on the ice and slide until the ice block slides up against the second
one. From there, go left, up, and then right and then head up and go through
the door.
Room 2:
-There are two trainers, you have to fight the one on the left to continue,
but you can avoid the right one as long as you do not mess up the puzzle.
Go to the left, fight the trainer, and then line yourself up with the ice
block and slide into it. Once you are stopped, go up and through the door.
-In the third room, go to the left and fight the trainer and then line
yourself up with the ice block and slide into it. Go up, fight the trainer,
then go right, left, up, right, up, right, up and fight the trainer, left,
and then up.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Pryce
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Seel lv 30 (Water)
|
|Dewgong lv 32 (Water/Ice)
|
|Piloswine lv 34 (Ice/Ground)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Pryce has not changed much from his GSC days, only being about 3
|
|
higher then his old team. His moves have not changed much either,
|
|
although his Pokemon no longer all have Icy Wind as a main attack.
|
|
|
|
Anywho, his Seel has Icy Wind, Rest, Snore, and Hail. Icy Wind lowers |
|
your speed each time it hits, so be careful not to have it lowered too|
|
much. He will use Rest when Seel gets low on HP, and then Snore to
|
|
damage you while sleeping. Snore also has a high chance of flinching, |
|
so be careful. Hail lasts several turns and hits any Pokemon that is |
|
not a Ice type Pokemon, so it will hit Seel as well. Electric Pokemon |
|
work best here.
|
|
|
|
Dewgong is similar to Seel, but has much stronger moves. it has Rest, |

|
Sleep Talk, Aurora Beam, and Ice Shard. Auora Beam and Ice Shard are |
|
both strong Ice Type attacks, while Sleep Talk allows it to use one |
|
of those two moves while the user is asleep. Once again, Electric
|
|
attacks work well against Pryce, but Fighting can also cause some
|
|
serious damage.
|
|
|
|
Finally, there is Piloswine, the powerhouse of his team. It is holding|
|
a Sitrus Berry, which will restore 25% of its HP when it gets low.
|
|
Its moves include Blizzard, Ice Fang, Mud Bomb, and Hail. All are very|
|
powerful moves, and can be hard to take down if your Pokemon are
|
|
underleveled. Piloswine is weak to fighting, steel, fire, water, and |
|
grass moves, so moves such as Surf, Mega Drain, Iron Tail, any
|
|
fighting moves, and Fire Blast are all good ones. Be careful about
|
|
using Fire and Grass types, since they are weak to his attack.
|
|
|
|
It is recommended that your Pokemon are at least lv 30 and that some |
|
of them know Thunder, Surf, and fighting moves.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat Pryce he will give Glacier Badge and TM07 (Hail). You can also
use Whirlpool outside of battle now, so the HM Lance gave you earlier will
work.
Once you head outside, you will get a phone call saying Goldenrod has been
taken over. Go to the Pokemon Center and heal, and then fly over there.
____
//J035|_____________________________________________________________________\\
||
Radio Tower
||
\\__________________________________________________________________________//
When you get to Goldenrod, you will find that most of the places are sealed
off by Rocket Grunts, and if you try to go to the Radio Tower one of the
Rocket Grunts will be blocking the stairs. In order to get to the upper
floors of the Radio Tower, you will need to dress like a Grunt. Head to the
underground from the Game Corner and go right, and you will find a Rocket
that will dress you up in a uniform.
Head back to the Radio Tower and talk to the grunt that is near the stairs.
He will then move, but your rival will come and reveal who you really are.
After that, the grunt will fight you: He has two lv 24 Raticates, so it
should be pretty easy. Once you beat him, the grunt will run upstairs and
your rival will run off. Make sure your Pokemon are all healed up and then
head up the Radio Tower.
______
|2F |
______________________________________________________________________________
You will find a bunch of rocket grunts here. If you are still underleveled,
then you may want to fight them. Otherwise, continue on to the third floor
______________________________________________________________________________
______
|3F |
______________________________________________________________________________

Several more grunts to fight for EXP. If you go to the right, you will find
a set of shutters that does now allow you to continue up. Instead, go up the
stairs on the left to the 4th Floor.
______________________________________________________________________________
______
|4F |
______________________________________________________________________________
Not much to do on this Floor as well. There is a female Rocket grunt looking
out the window at Executive Proton, but that is about it. You can fight
her for the EXP, although it is not required. Once you are ready, head up the
stairs on the left side of the room.
______________________________________________________________________________
______
|5F |
______________________________________________________________________________
On the 5th Floor, you will find a man that looks like the Radio Tower Manager,
but in reality he is Petrel, the same man who dressed up earlier as Giovanni.
Save before you talk to him, since he will fight you.

|
|Koffing lv 30 (Poison)
|
|Koffing lv 30 (Poison)
|
|Weezing lv 32 (Poison)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Possible one of the few times in the game where you will face a full |
|
6 Pokemon, Petrel can be seen as a benchmark of sorts. All his Koffing|
|
have Sludge, Smokescreen, and Selfdestruct for when your HP gets low. |
|
Best way to take them out is to use a Psychic move, such as Confusion |
|
or Psybeam, or even Psychic if you have it. Weezing is similar to the |
|
Koffing, but a little tougher. Watch out if any of the Koffing use
|
|
selfdestruct, since it will greatly damage your Pokemon. You may want |
|
to bring a few potions and revives just in case.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat Petrel, he will give you the Basement Key for the area of the
underground that is locked. Head back to the bottom of the Radio Tower, heal
your Pokemon, and head to the underground. When you head right, you will
find one of the Kimono sisters and she will talk to you. After she leaves,
keep going right and use the Basement Key on the shutters to open it.
____
//J036|_____________________________________________________________________\\

When you first enter the area, you will see several team rocket grunts. Try

to go to the left, however, and your Rival will show up and fight you.

|
|Meganium lv 34 (Grass) *If you choose Totodile
|
|Feraligatr lv 34 (Water) *If you choose Cyndaquil
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Its been awhile since you last fought your rival, so this might be a |
|
good chance to test your skills. His Pokemon are 30-34, so your
|
|
should be around or above that range, lowest you should have is lv 28.|
|
Interesting enough though, he will have a Feraligatr if you have
|
|
chosen a Quilava, whereas choosing anything else will only have him |
|
using the first evolution of his starter and not the final one.
|
|
|
|
First is Golbat, who has Air Cutter, Confuse Ray, Bite, and Astonish. |
|
It has flying, dark, and ghost attacks, so be careful of using grass |
|
psychic, ghost, or fighting Pokemon. Psychic or rock moves take it
|
|
down real quick.
|
|
|
|
Second up is Haunter, which has Curse, Mean Look, Confuse Ray, and
|
|
Shadow Ball. Similar to Morty's you will want to switch out if he
|
|
uses Curse, although it might be hard if you use Mean Look. Confuse |
|
Ray can be a gigantic pain in the ass, and Shadow Ball is always a
|
|
tough move against your Pokemon. Normal Pokemon with Psychic or
|
|
Ghost moves work well, as well as dark attacks such as bite.
|
|
|
|
|
|
Magnemite is his lowest level Pokemon, and it has Spark, Supersonic, |
|
Sonicboom, and Thunderwave. Similar to his other two Pokemon, he can |
|
confuse you with Supersonic. SonicBoom always does 20 damage, and
|
|
Spark is a electric move. Fire, ground, and fighting attacks are super|
|
effective against it.
|
|
|
|
Sneasel is his newest Pokemon, one you might have found out about
|
|
earlier if you got the Shuckle from the man in Cianwood. Its attacks |
|
include Faint Attack, Quick Attack, Fury Swipes, and Icy Wind. All of |
|
the attacks are Psychical attacks, so a Pokemon with high defense will|
|
work fine. Icy Wind is a special attack, but it will not do as much |
|
because of Sneasel's low special attack.
|
|
|
|
Finally, there is his starters. Quilava goes down with ground and
|
|
water attacks like surf, Bayleef goes down with Ice, fire, and flying |
|
moves, and Feraligatr goes down with electric and grass attacks.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
After you beat your rival, he will mention Lance and then leaves. Anywho, now
that you have taken care of your rival there are two grunts in the room that
you have to beat. After that, go down and then left, and then in the lower
left corner you will find a item ball with a Smoke Ball item (If you attach it
to one of your Pokemon, it allows you to escape from wild battles easier).
There is also a few bandits in this area, usually with more fire Pokemon like
Growlithe and Poison Pokemon like Koffing.

Your main goal for this room is to get to the center switch room. There are
three levers on the north wall: A red switch, a green switch, and a blue
switch. In order to get to the next area, you will need to press the Red
switch first, then the blue one, and then the green. Once you have done all of
that, head to the right shutter and then go down. When you are near the door,
you will face a Rocket Grunt with two Glooms. Beat her and continue through
the door.
In the next room, you will find that the path is rather straightforward. Along
the way, you will find a Ultra Ball, Max Ether, and TM82 (Sleep Talk) in
itemballs. Once you get to the end of the path and fight all the Rocket
Grunts, you will find the real Radio Tower Manager. Talk to him and he will
give you a Keycard to the closed shutter on the 3rd Floor of the Radio Tower.
Head up the stairs on your right and you will find a item ball with a Amulet
Coin, a item that will double your money earned when you attach it to one of
your Pokemon and that Pokemon fights. You will find that there are several
Machoke and boxes blocking your way to several of the other items, so take
the elevator up to the first floor of the Goldenrod Department Store. Heal
your Pokemon at the Pokemon Center, and go back to the Radio Tower.

Radio Tower Redux

\\__________________________________________________________________________//
Now that you are back in the Radio Tower, head back to the 3rd Floor. If you
have not, fight any grunts you have not fought yet for the EXP, since you will
need all the levels you can get. Open the shutters on the third floor and
fight the rocket that is guarding the stairs. Head up and you will find
Executive Proton, ready to fight you again.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Rocket Executive Proton
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Golbat lv 28 (Poison/Flying)
|
|Weezing lv 33 (Poison)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: If you had no trouble against your rival and Petrel, then Proton will |
|
be a cakewalk. Golbat has Wing Attack, Confuse Ray, Leech Life, and |
|
Bite, all very standard for a Golbat. Weezing has Sludge, Double Hit, |
|
Smokescreen and Smog. Both are very weak against psychic attacks, so |
|
Psybeam or Confusion work well. Golbat is also weak against Ice and |
|
Rock moves.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you do beat him, there is a item ball with a Ultra Ball that is right
next to him. Head up the stairs and you will find Arianna, who will also have
a rematch with you.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Rocket Executive Arianna
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Arbok lv 32 (Poison)
|
|Vileplume lv 32 (Grass/Poison)
|
|Murkrow lv 32 (Dark/Flying)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: This will be the first and last time you face Arianna outside of a
|

|
double battle, so it will be a interesting one. Her Pokemon have
|
|
leveled up about 5-7 levels since the Mahogany Town Rocket Hideout, so|
|
yours should be around lv 30 or so.
|
|
|
|
First, her Arbok has Glare, Crunch, Wrap, and Poison Sting. All are |
|
fairly weak attacks, although glare can be annoying since it paralyzes|
|
you. Psychic and Ground attacks will knock it out quickly.
|
|
|
|
Next up is Vileplume, her strongest Pokemon. It has Sweet Scent, Acid,|
|
Mega Drain, and Sleep Powder. Sweet Scent makes it so your Pokemon
|
|
are easier to it, and Sleep Powder is a annoying move that puts your |
|
Pokemon to sleep for a few turns (Unless you are still Paralyzed from |
|
Arbok). Mega Drain is her strongest attack, and will recover some of |
|
her HP. Flying, Psychic, Fire, and Ice moves are all the best ones
|
|
to use.
|
|
|
|
Finally, there is Murkrow. It has Night Shade, Wing Attack, Astonish, |
|
and Pursuit. Nothing special here, ice, electric, and rock moves are |
|
all very effective against it.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
If your Pokemon are low on health, you might want to head back to the Pokemon
Center real quick and heal up. Once you are ready, take the elevator up to the
top floor of the Radio Tower. Head around to the north side to find a guy
standing there. His name is Archer and he is the current leader of Team
Rocket. After talking to him and learning his true motives for attacking the
radio tower, he will fight you.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Rocket Executive Archer
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Houndour lv 35 (Dark/Fire)
|
|Koffing lv 35 (Poison)
|
|Houndoom lv 38 (Dark/Fire)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: The new Big Boss of Team Rocket, this is also the first and last time |
|
you will fight Archer. His team is lv 35-38, so you will want your
|
|
Pokemon to be no lower then 33 or so. Unlike the other few executives,|
|
his Pokemon have a few more powerful attacks then normal, so it will |
|
be a little different.
|
|
|
|
His Houndour has Faint Attack, Fire Fang, Crunch, and Roar. Fire Fang |
|
and Crunch are both very powerful moves, so make sure your Pokemon has|
|
a high defense. Roar can drag out another Pokemon, so switch them out |
|
if he drags out a Pokemon with low defense or a psychic/ghost/grass/ |
|
ice Pokemon. Houndour is weak against Fighting, Ground, Rock, and
|
|
Water attacks, so moves like Rock Throw, Magnitude, and Surf are all |
|
good ones to use.
|
|
|
|
Next up is Koffing. It has Sludge, Smokescreen, Tackle, and Haze. Haze|
|
is the only unique move that resets any positive or negative status |
|
increases or decreases you or Koffing might have gained. This acts as |
|
sort of a double edged sword, since any uses of Smokescreen can be
|
|
negated because of this. Otherwise, use the same strategy you have
|
|
used against Koffing in the past.
|
|
|
|
Finally, there is Houndoom, which while being a more powerful and
|

|
higher level version of Houndour, actually has worse attacks. It has |
|
Faint Attack, Fire Fang, Bite, and Smog. Take it out with the same
|
|
moves you used against Houndour.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat him, he will disband team rocket once more and all the grunts
will leave the Radio Tower. The manager of the radio tower will come in and
thank you and give you the Rainbow or Silver Wing, depending on what version
you have.
There are a couple of things you can do while you are in the Radio Tower. If
you talk to the woman that was near the closed shutters on the 3rd floor, she
will give you TM11 (Sunny Day). If you head up on the 4th Floor where the
Radio Booth is and talk to DJ Mary, she will give you the Brightpowder hold
item. Also, you can get the Blue Card for the Radio Show Quiz on the second
floor from the girl at the radio booth.
Anywho, even though you have the Rainbow or Silver Wing, you cannot get Lugia
or Ho-Oh yet, not until you beat the last gym leader. Fly back to Mahogany
Town and you will find that things have, for the most part, gone back to
normal. The shop where the Rocket Hideout was is now selling normal items, and
you can now head East onto Route 44.

There is a bunch of trainers on this route, all good for EXP. You will also
notice that there is not as much grass on this route, so it might be hard
to find some of the Pokemon listed above. There are two paths on this route:
A upper route and a lower route. The lower route has more trainer, while the
upper has less. Head east and then head up the stairs to the Ice Path.

Similar to Pryce's Gym, but is a little straightforward for the first few ice
parts. When you get to the big ice puzzle, go these directions:
- Up, left, up, left, down, left, up, right.
Once you are past that puzzle, you will find another ice puzzle you must
go through. This time, it is for HM07, Waterfall. To get through that puzzle,
the solution is:
- Right, down, left, up, left, down, left, up, right
Once you are done, head up the stairs and to the right to find a ladder
leading down.

Second room has a boulder puzzle. Going counterclockwise:
- First boulder you press up until you cannot press it anymore, and then go
around right until you are on top of the boulder and press it to the right
and then down into the hole.
- Second hole should have it down one, and then over left until it is near
the hole and then go above it and press down and then right into the hole.
- Third hole, you go to the right and find a boulder above a small ice path
and push it to the left and then down until you cannot press it anymore,
and then press it right, and then down three times, and then go around it
and press it up once, and then press it left until it goes into the hole.
- Fourth Hole, you press the boulder up twice, and then right once, and then

up twice, then you go around on the other side and you press it to the right
twice then head around and press it up, and then to the left until it is in
the hole.
After that, go down the ladder near the last hole to B2.

Ah, Blackthorn City. There is not much you can do at this point. There is a
house near the Pokemart which has the Move Deleter, the Move Re learner (Still
requires a Heart Scale), Grandma Wilma who will teach your Pokemon Draco
Meteor if they are the Dragon type, and a man who will teach your starters
Frenzy Plant, Hydro Cannon, and Blast Burn if they like you enough.
There is also a guy in a house that will trade you a Dodrio for a female
Dragonair, which is a bit of a ripoff, but still a option if you want one for
your Pokedex.
There is also a house near the Ice Cave that has a woman inside that will
give your top Pokemon a Effort Ribbon if its EVs are all maxed out.
You can also go south to Route 45, but make sure you bring a Pokemon that can
fly. It is good EXP, and has a few rare Pokemon.
For now, lets go explore Route 45 and see what it has.

Route 45 is rather different then you remember it. Taking full advantage of
the D/P/Pl engine for terrain, the place is now full of various cliffs and
water passages. You will also find several unique Pokemon to your version.
HG users will find Gligar and Phanpy, while SS users will get Teddiursa and
Skamory. There is also a bunch of trainers on this route, so it might be a
good idea to raise your levels a little bit for the upcoming Gym. Keep going

down to find Route 46.

Now that you are on the other side of Route 46, you will find a few new
trainers to battle. They are fairly low level however, so you will have no
trouble with them. You can also access the other side of the Dark Cave from
this side, and find a climbable rock wall that you won't be able to access
until much later in the game. If you keep going south, you will end up in
the part of Route 46 that was in the beginning of the game. The Pokemon on
this route are the same Pokemon from earlier in the game, so there is no
difference.
Once you are ready, head back to Blackthorn City via flying and and go north
to the gym.

OK, here is how it works: There is a platform you must go on. The middle one
switches the direction around when it is not connected to anything, and the
two arrows make it move in that direction. For the first one, you will want
to flip it up right and then press the right arrow. On the pathway, there
are several trainers you must fight.
On the second one, you have to twist it around until its non-ledge end is on
the right. You can use the middle portion to change the direction the arrows
will go, and then slide it around in the right way.
Once you get past the final one, you will find the Gym Leader, Clair.

that is weak to Electric and one that is weak to Dragon attacks.
|
|
|
|
The first Pokemon are her two Dragonairs. They are both similar in
|
|
level, and both have Dragon Pulse, Thunder Wave, and Slam. The only |
|
difference is one has Fire Blast and the other has Aqua Tail. Dragon |
|
Pulse is a very strong Dragon move with 90 base damage. Thunder Wave |
|
Paralyzes your Pokemon, and Fire Blast and Aqua Tail are both very
|
|
strong Fire and Water attacks respectively. Ice attacks are your best |
|
friend in this battle, since it is the only thing the two Dragonair |
|
are weak to. A Ice Pokemon caught from the Ice Path or the TM you got |
|
from Pryce are both good to use against them.
|
|
|
|
Next up is old favorite Gyarados. It has Dragon Rage, Twister, Bite, |
|
and Dragon Pulse. Dragon Rage always takes off 40HP every time it is |
|
used, no more or no less. Twister is a somewhat weak dragon type move,|
|
but does more if the Pokemon is using Fly or Bounce. Gyarados is 4x |
|
weak to electric attacks, so Thunderbolt or Thunder are both very good|
|
moves to use.
|
|
|

|
Finally, there is Kingdra. It is her highest level Pokemon at lv 41 |
|
and is holding a Sitrus Berry. As for attacks, it knows Hydro Pump, |
|
Dragon Pulse, Hyper Beam, and Smokescreen. Kingdra is a tough Pokemon |
|
to beat since its only weakness is Dragon attacks. If you bought a
|
|
Dratini earlier from the Goldenrod Game Corner and it knows Dragon
|
|
attacks, use those. Otherwise, use your strongest Pokemon against it. |
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat her,
tells you to go to
and go north until
5 or below Pokemon

she will not believe that you have proved yourself and
the Dragon's Den and prove yourself. Surf behind the Gym
you find the entrance. (Note that you may want to have
before you enter the Dragons Den).

You will find a couple of trainers here, although they mostly have Dragon and
Water Pokemon. You will need a Pokemon with Whirlpool and Surf to get to where
you need to go. Also, if you want a special Pokemon, you will need to have a
empty slot in your party. Head on the left side, use whirlpool, and then keep
following the path until you find the Dragon Shrine. Inside, talk to the
dragon master and choose the following answers:
Question #1: What are Pokemon to you?
-Ally
Question #2: What helps win battles?

-Strategy
Question #3: What kind of Trainer do you wish to battle?
-Anyone
Question #4: What is most important in raising Pokemon?
-Love
Question #5 Strong Pokemon. Weak Pokemon. Which is more important?
-Both
Once you answer right, Clair will come in and think you failed the test,
mentioning that not even she has past it. After that, she will give you the
Rising Badge. This does several things, all Pokemon received in trades will
now obay and you can use the HM move Waterfall outside of battle.
Head back the way you came, and Clair will then give you TM59 as well, which
contains Dragon Pulse.
Once you capture Ho-Oh or Lugia depending on what version you have, go speak
to the Elder and he will give you a Dratini with the move Extremespeed if you
past his test. If not, then you will still get it, but without the
Extremespeed move. If you do not have a free space for it, you can come back
for it later.
Note that if you have a full party, you will have to go back and deposit one
of your Pokemon so the elder will give the Dratini to you.
Leave the Dragons Den, and then fly back to New Bark Town.

Once you are in New Bark Town, head to Elm's Lab and you will find Ethan or
Lyra already there. He/She will mention that you have all 8 badges, and then
leave. Talk to Prof. Elm and he will give you the Master Ball, the one
Pokeball in the game capable of capturing a Pokemon 100% of the time.
Now that you have the Master Ball, fly back to Ecruteak and go to the Kimono
house above the Pokemon Center. Your rival will then exit and comment on how
tough the Kimono Sisters are. Make sure your Pokemon are all healed up.
When you go inside, you will automatically go onstage and fight each of the
Kimono Sisters. Unlike GSC, you do not have a break in between and must
fight them without a break, so you can only use items in order. They each
have a Eevee evolution, and are all lv 38. First one has a Umbreon, then
a Espeon, then a Flareon, then a Jolteon, and finally a Vaporeon.
Once you do beat them in order, you will receive the Clear Bell in HeartGold,
and the Tide Bell in SoulSilver . Just then, a little girl will come in and
mention that Ho-Oh is near the Bell Tower (In HeartGold) and Lugia is at the
Whirl Islands (In SoulSilver).
In order to continue, you will need to go fight or capture them. HeartGold
users can go to section SQ02 to find out what to do, while SoulSilver users
can go to SQ03 for the Whirl Islands.
Once you have beaten/captured Lugia or Ho-Oh, its time to prepare. Make sure
you have a Pokemon that can use Surf, Strength, and Waterfall and continue
back to New Bark Town and use surf on the right side to head to Route 27.
____
//J045|_____________________________________________________________________\\
||
Route 27
||
\\__________________________________________________________________________//
The first half of this Route is mainly for surfing. Once you are on land, you
will be stopped by a man who will not let you go further unless you fought the
Kimono Sisters and captured/beat Lugia or Ho-Oh (Go back if you have not done
those things). If you have done those things, you will be able to go into
the Tohjo Falls.

done so yet, but otherwise use surf and then go up the waterfall to reach the

The other side of Route 27 is pretty interesting. You will find several rare
Pokemon that you might not be able to find elsewhere. Once you exit from the
Tohjo falls, go into the house below it to get TM37 (Sandstorm). Once that is
done, surf on the water to the right to get to the second part of Route 27.
You will find many Ace Trainers along the route, many with unique Kanto
Pokemon. Keep going to the right and going past the bridge and up the steps
near the small mountain. When you head down the steps on the other side, you
will find a item ball with the Destiny Knot held item. You will eventually
hit Route 26 itself when you hit a giant bridge that is over water.

Once you are on Route 26, keep going right and then up when you are forced to.
There are a bunch of grass areas and several trainers. At the end, you will
find a house where you can rest and restore your Pokemon's health. Keep going

up and you will have to face several trainers that you cannot avoid. At the
end of the route is a gatehouse where you must show you have all 8 badges.
Once you are let through, you will be on Victory Road. You might want to check
your Pokemon's health and make sure if it OK before continuing.

Welcome to the Victory Road! One of the very first places from Kanto you might
recognize from Gen I and III, although it has greatly changed since then.
There is not too many unique Pokemon, only Donphan and Ursaring for the most
part. You can also find Rhyhorn here as well if you want to capture them.
Anywho, follow the path until you reach your first boulder. Push the boulder
up, and then follow the path and you will find a potion. Go up the stairs and
over the bridge and head down the left side and then go up until you find a
ladder near the stairs.

Head down the hole near the ladder where you just came up, and then you
will be back on the second floor. Push the boulder in the middle of the
stairs and then go down the stairs and up to find a Full Restore. Then push
the boulder to the right and go up the ladder back to the 3rd floor.
Ignore the first hole you see and keep going. Go around to the left side and
go up the stairs to find a ultra ball. Keep going left until you find two
different holes. Take the bottom one and then go up a ladder to end up on the
other side. Keep going up and then go to the right and then up. When you get
near the end, your rival will show up and fight you.

battle between him and you, his Pokemon are fairly similar, only his |

should be in the lv 35-37 range by this point, so make sure none of |

your Pokemon are too underleveled. Sneasel goes down with Fire and

fighting moves, Golbat is weak to Psychic and Electric moves, Magneton|

Feraligatr is weak to grass and electric moves, and Meganium is weak |

in the building. Keep going north and you will enter the Pokemon League

Ah, the Pokemon League. Out of all the Pokemon games, this particular lobby
seems to always change. On the left is a Pokemon Center, and on the right is
a Pokemart with stairs leading down for wi-fi battling. Upstairs is just like
the Johto Pokemon Centers and the entrance to the Pokemon League. There are
a few things you will want to do before taking on the Elite Four.
+============================+
|Preparing for the Elite Four|
+============================+
* Make sure your Pokemon are at least level 40 or above. In fact, you will
have a much easier time if they are at least level 45 or above. If they are
not to the level you want them to be at, go back to Victory Road, Route 27
and 26, and Route 45 and train with any trainers you have not fought yet
or wild Pokemon. Remember that the EXP Share gotten from Mr. Pokemon's house
after trading him the Red Scale is a good tool to raise your weaker Pokemon.
Attach it to the lower leveled Pokemon and have your higher level Pokemon

fight.
* You will want at least 20 Max Potions, 10 Full Restores, 15 Revives, and 15
Full Heals. If you have any non-hold items, then sell them for cash. Worse
comes to worse, you can keep fighting the first members of the elite four to
get enough cash to buy stuff if you are low. Like gaining EXP, go back and
fight trainers and wear the Amulet Coin to get double.
* You will want Pokemon with Psychic, Water, Ice, Electric, Fire, and Ground
moves, and possibly some Ghost moves as well. Thunder, Blizzard, and Fire
Blast can be bought from the Goldenrod Department Store. Ice Beam,
Thunderbolt, and Flamethrower can be gotten from the Rocket Game Corner for
about 5,500 coins. Shadow Ball is a TM you should have gotten from Morty
earlier on, and Surf is one of your HMs. You will want to have a Psychic
Pokemon for psychic attacks, so Kadabra or Alakazam would be good (You can
get them off the GTS if you have a wireless connection).
KB Karma Adds:
"The best place to level Pokemon pre-Elite Four is on Tuesday afternoons with
Alfred in the Olivine Lighthouse. He has a level 36 Noctowl, which has
Confusion, Reflect, Air Slash (not sure here), and Take down. The Noctowl
gives 1249XP, and you get 7200 creds. It's particularly weak to physical
attacks, as I found out when using an Electabuzz with ThunderPunch."
Once you are ready, head through the gates on the top floor and fight the
Elite Four
+==============+
|The Elite Four|
+==============+
Like other Pokemon games, the Elite Four is 4 members with different types,
each with 5 Pokemon, plus the Champion with 6 Pokemon. That is 5 trainers
total, and you cannot go back to the Pokemon League area to heal. Unlike
other Elite Fours, this one is rather low level, with the highest Pokemon
being lv 50.
Many of the Elite Four members either have way too many Pokemon of their
type, or too many that have dual weaknesses, so you will need a variety of
attacks to beat them. One trick you can use is to save before fighting a Elite
Four member, and if you die because of a stupid reason, you can reboot and
fight the same member again.
Your first Elite Four member is Will, a Psychic user.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Will
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Xatu lv 40 (Psychic/Flying)
|
|Jynx lv 41 (Ice/Psychic)
|
|Slowbro lv 41 (Water/Psychic)
|
|Exeggutor lv 41 (Grass/Psychic)
|
|Xatu lv 42 (Psychic/Flying)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Ah Will...The first elite four member is usually a test to see how
|
|
well your Pokemon have come. If you have trouble against him, you
|
|
might want to consider raising your levels a little bit. All of his |
|
Pokemon are at least part Psychic, but a common weakness is all of his|

|
Pokemon are also dual types. 3 out of 5 of his Pokemon are weak
|
|
against Electric attacks, while the other two are weak against fire. |
|
Dark and Ghost moves are also recommended for all of his Pokemon, if |
|
you have one.
|
|
|
|
His starting Pokemon is his first Xatu, which has U-Turn, Me First, |
|
Psychic, and Confuse Ray. U-Turn is the same move Bugsy used earlier |
|
in his Gym Match with you, so you should know by now that it switches |
|
out with another Pokemon when used. Me First is a rather nasty move |
|
that copies your attack, and then does 1.5x the damage it would
|
|
normally do. It only works if you are slower then Xatu, and if you are|
|
using a damaging attack. Finally, Psychic and Confuse Ray are both
|
|
annoying moves, with Psychic doing a bunch of damage to most Pokemon |
|
and Confuse Ray being a very accurate confusion move. Best way to take|
|
Xatu out is Ghost, Dark, Electric, Rock, or Ice moves. Ice Beam,
|
|
Crunch, Shadow Ball, Thunderbolt or Thunder, Rock Throw and such are |
|
all good moves.
|
|
|
|
Next up is Jynx, who has Psychic, Lovely Kiss, Ice Punch, and Double |
|
Slap. All of these should be fairly familiar to you besides Lovely
|
|
Kiss, which puts your opponent to sleep. Jynx is weak against Rock
|
|
Ghost, Bug, Fire, Steel, and Dark moves. Shadow Ball, Rock Throw,
|
|
Twineedle, Flamethrower or Fire Blast, Iron Tail, and Crunch are
|
|
effective against Jynx.
|
|
|
|
Third is Slowbro, which has Curse, Amnesia, Water Pulse, and Psychic. |
|
You have to be careful with Slowbro, since Curse is used to increase |
|
its Defense and Attack by one and lower its already low speed stat
|
|
by 1, and Amnesia is used to increase Special Defense. You do not want|
|
Slowbro to use it too often, or it will be hard to hit. Water Pulse |
|
is a water move that also has a 20% chance of confusion, and Psychic |
|
is the same as always. Electric, Rock, Bug, Grass, Dark, and Ghost
|
|
attacks are the way to go. Thunderbolt or Thunder, Twineedle, Razor |
|
or Magical Leaf, Crunch, and Shadow Ball.
|
|
|
|
Fourth up is Exeggutor, who has Reflect, Psychic, Egg Bomb, and
|
|
Hypnosis. Reflect is a move that lasts 5 turns and halves any Physical|
|
type moves you might use against Exeggutor. Egg Bomb is a highly
|
|
damaging, but inaccurate Physical move, and Hypnosis puts you to
|
|
sleep. Flying, Bug, Ghost, Fire, Ice, Dark, and Poison attacks are
|
|
all good ones.
|
|
|
|
Finally, there is his last Xatu, which has a Sitrus Berry attached
|
|
to regain health when it gets low, and has Psychic, Confuse Ray,
|
|
Ominous Wind, and Aerial Ace. The only difference is Ominous Wind and |
|
Aerial Ace, with Ominous Wind being similar to Ancientpower and having|
|
a chance of increasing all of the users stats by 1, and with Aerial |
|
Ace it is a highly accurate flying move that does not miss. Use the |
|
same strategy you use against the first one to take this one out.
|
|
|
|
Recommended Pokemon include: Tysplosion, Piloswine, Onix or Steelix, |
|
Misdreavus, Butterfree or Beedrill, Jolteon at around lv 40.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
If you easily beat Will, then you should be OK. Otherwise, you might have
some trouble with the next members. Continue up to the next room. The next
trainer is Koga, a former Kanto gym leader that specializes in Poison Pokemon.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Koga
|

|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Ariados lv 40 (Bug/Poison)
|
|Fortress lv 43 (Bug/Steel)
|
|Muk lv 42 (Poison)
|
|Venomoth lv 41 (Bug/Poison)
|
|Crobat lv 44 (Poison/Flying)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Fans of RBY and FRLG might recognize Koga as the previous Gym Leader |
|
for Fuchsia City. His team is similar to his Yellow and FR/LG teams, |
|
but with a few new faces. His major weakness is Psychic, but several |
|
of his Pokemon are Bug, so Fire is also a very effective weakness to |
|
exploit.
|
|
|
|
His first Pokemon is Ariados, which has Spider Web, Poison Jab, Giga |
|
Drain, and Baton Pass. Spider Web prevents the Pokemon it hits from |
|
switching out, Poison Jab is a strong Physical move that has a 30%
|
|
chance of poisoning your Pokemon, and Baton Pass switches out his
|
|
Pokemon with any benefits it has received from battle. Ariados is weak|
|
to Flying, Fire, Ground, and Psychic moves mainly, so Psychic, Fire |
|
Blast/Flamethrower/Flame Wheel, Wing Attack/Aerial Ace, and Earthquake|
|
and Magnitude are all good attacks.
|
|
|
|
Forretress is his second Pokemon, and it is a weird one. It has Swift,|
|
Protect, Explosion, and Toxic Spikes. Toxic Spikes is very nasty,
|
|
since if it uses it once then any Pokemon that is switched in will get|
|
Poisoned and if it uses it twice then your Pokemon will be Toxic-level|
|
poisoned. Forretress is a very defensive Pokemon, with both high
|
|
Defense and Physical Defense, so its only weakness is Fire attacks. |
|
|
|
Third is Muk, which is holding Black Sludge (Recovers HP every turn), |
|
and has Minimize, Gunk Shot, Screech, and Toxic. Minimize increases |
|
its Evasiveness and makes it hard to hit. Gunk Shot is a inaccurate, |
|
but very powerful Poison move with a 30% chance of poisoning you.
|
|
Toxic is a nasty move that inflicts level 2 poisoning, which takes off|
|
double damage every turn. You will want to knock out Muk quickly, so |
|
Psychic and Ground moves are best. Also, Steel Pokemon are resistant |
|
to Poison moves, so you might want to consider using one.
|
|
|
|
Venomoth is Fourth, and has Toxic, Supersonic, Psychic and Gust.
|
|
Psychic is the big attack here, since it is one of the most powerful |
|
moves for a Psychic Pokemon to use. Like Ariados, it is weak against |
|
Psychic, Fire, Ground, and Flying, so the same moves you used against |
|
Ariados will work here.
|
|
|
|
Finally, his main Pokemon is Crobat, which has a Sitrus Berry and has |
|
Double Team, Wing Attack, Quick Attack, and Poison Fang. Double Team |
|
increases its evasiveness, making it hard to hit, while Poison Fang |
|
is a weaker physical poison move, but has a 20% chance of inflicting |
|
Toxic level Poisoning. Crobat is weak against Psychic, Rock, Electric |
|
and Ice attacks, so Psychic/Psywave, Rock Throw, Thunder/Thunderbolt, |
|
and Ice Beam/Blizzard are all good to use.
|
|
|
|
Recommended Pokemon include: Ninetales/Arcanine/Typhlosion, Kadabra |
|
or Alakazam, Steelix/Skarmory at around level 40-42 or higher. It is |
|
also recommended that you have several full heals, since Toxic is a |
|
very dangerous move and you want to treat it right away if your
|
|
Pokemon are badly poisoned.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/

If Koga poisoned any of your Pokemon, make sure to use a Antidote/Full heal/
Full Restore on your Pokemon. Next up is Bruno, a Elite Four Member from Gen
I and III that is good with Fighting Pokemon.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Bruno
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Hitmontop lv 42 (Fighting)
|
|Hitmonlee lv 42 (Fighting)
|
|Hitmonchan lv 42 (Fighting)
|
|Onix lv 43 (Rock/Ground)
|
|Machamp lv 46 (Fighting)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Ah...Bruno. One of the few Elite Four members that has kept his
|
|
position. His team is very close to his RBY team, with the only
|
|
difference being his Hitmontop replacing one of his Onix. Like Koga, |
|
most of his Pokemon are one type, fighting. That means Psychic and
|
|
Flying Pokemon are the best ones to use for this match up. You can
|
|
also avoid most of the fighters attacks with Ghost Pokemon, so a
|
|
Gengar with a Psychic move might be a good one to have.
|
|
|
|
Anywho, his first Pokemon is Hitmontop, the new Hitmon evolution for |
|
HG/SS. His attacks include Dig, Quick Attack, Counter, and Triple Kick|
|
Dig makes Hitmontop go underground the first turn, and then pop back |
|
up on the second. Counter does double the damage just dealt if you use|
|
a physical attack, so use Special attacks if you can. Triple Kick is |
|
a weak move that builds up each time it hits during that turn. The
|
|
first hit has a base of 10, the second is 20, and the third is 30,
|
|
bringing it to a total of 60 if all three kicks connect during that |
|
turn. If it misses, then that turn is over. Hitmontop goes down with |
|
Psychic moves like Psybeam and Psychic, as well as moves like Fly and |
|
Wing Attack.
|
|
|
|
Second up is Hitmonlee. It has Blaze Kick, Focus Energy, Hi Jump Kick,|
|
and Swagger. Blaze Kick is a fire type physical move that has a higher|
|
Critical Hit ratio and has a 10% chance of causing burns. Focus Energy|
|
makes it so the Pokemon has a 4x chance of scoring a Critical Hit. Hi |
|
Jump Kick is a high damaging, but risky move that is 90% accurate, and|
|
if it misses then Hitmonlee will receive 1/8 of the damage it would |
|
have inflicted. Then there is Swagger, it buffs up your attack two
|
|
levels, but makes you confused. Use the same method you used against |
|
Hitmontop.
|
|
|
|
Hitmonchan is third, and has Ice Punch, ThunderPunch, Fire Punch, and |
|
Bullet Punch. All three of the elemental punches are decent moves that|
|
can do a decent amount of damage and have secondary effects, such as |
|
freezing, paralyze, and burn in that order. Bullet Punch is a low
|
|
power Steel move, but always goes first, like Quick Attack. You will |
|
want to be careful using flying Pokemon against Hitmonchan, so Psychic|
|
Pokemon are your best bet.
|
|
|
|
Onix is his fourth Pokemon, and has Sandstorm, Earthquake, Rock Slide |
|
and DragonBreath. Sandstorm causes damage every turn against Pokemon |
|
that are not Steel, Ground, or Rock types. Earthquake is a strong
|
|
ground move that can knock out most Pokemon pretty easily due to its |
|
high base damage. Rock Slide is a middle damage Rock move that also |
|
has a 30% chance of causing flinching. Finally, DragonBreath is a
|
|
middle damage Dragon move that has a 30% chance of Paralyzing your
|
|
Pokemon. Water and Grass Pokemon are the best, so Surf and Razor/
|

|
Magical Leaf are both good to use. Ice is also fairly effective.
|
|
|
|
Finally, there is Machamp. It is holding a Sitrus Berry and has Rock |
|
Slide, Cross Chop, Revenge, and Foresight. Cross Chop is a inaccurate |
|
but high damaging Fighting move with a higher critical hit chance.
|
|
Revenge is a powerful move where if you do damage to Machamp on the |
|
same turn he uses this moves, its base attack power goes up to 120. |
|
Foresight allows Machamp to hit Ghost Pokemon. You will want to knock |
|
out Machamp pretty quickly due to Revenge, so make sure you use your |
|
best Psychic and Flying attacks.
|
|
|
|
Recommended Pokemon Include: Kadabra/Alakazam, Pidgeot/Crobat/Noctowl,|
|
Lugia/Ho-Oh with Psychic all around level 43-45. Recommended moves
|
|
include Psychic, Psybeam, Wing Attack, Fly, Aerial Ace, Surf/Ice Beam/|
|
Razor Leaf for Onix.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Heal your Pokemon and continue. The next member is a new one named Karen, who
specializes in the rare Dark type.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Karen
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Umbreon lv 42 (Dark)
|
|Vileplume lv 42 (Grass/Poison)
|
|Murkrow lv 44 (Dark/Flying)
|
|Gengar lv 45 (Ghost/Poison)
|
|Houndoom lv 47 (Dark/Fire)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Karen is pretty unique among the Elite Four. She specializes in Dark |
|
type Pokemon, a rare type that does not even have a Gym yet. Despite |
|
her specialty, only one of her Pokemon is pure Dark type. Her other |
|
two Dark Pokemon are dual types, and the other two are somewhat random|
|
Pokemon. Because of that, you will need a variety of types to defeat |
|
Karen.
|
|
|
|
Her first Pokemon is Umbreon, which has Double Team, Confuse Ray,
|
|
Faint Attack, and Payback. Payback is similar to revenge, which puts |
|
its base power at 100 if you attack first before Umbreon. Umbreon is |
|
weak against Fighting and Bug attacks, so Pin Missile and the many
|
|
different fighting moves are all good to use.
|
|
|
|
Second is Vileplume, one of her Pokemon that has almost nothing to do |
|
with her specialty. It has Stun Spore, Petal Dance, Acid, and
|
|
Moonlight. Petal Dance is a grass type moves that attacks 2-3 turns |
|
and then Vileplume will become confused at the end. Moonlight is a
|
|
recovery move that recovers health depending on what field effect is |
|
in play. If Sunny Day is active, then it restores about 2/3 of its
|
|
health, if there is nothing on the field then it restores 1/2 of its |
|
health. If there are other weather conditions such as Sandstorm or
|
|
Rain Dance, then it is only 1/4th. If you are having trouble with
|
|
Moonlight, then consider using one of those moves. Vileplume is weak |
|
to Psychic, Fire, Ice, and Flying moves.
|
|
|
|
Her third Pokemon is Murkrow, which has Sucker Punch, Faint Attack, |
|
Drill Peck, and Whirlwind. Sucker Punch will go first, but will only |
|
work if you are using a damaging move that turn. Whirlwind will make |
|
your Pokemon switch out. Murkrow is weak to Rock, Electric, and Ice |
|
attacks, so Rock Throw, Thunder or Thunderbolt and Ice Beam/Blizzard |

|
are recommended.
|
|
|
|
Fourth up is Gengar, who has Focus Blast, Destiny Bond, Spite, and
|
|
Lick. Focus Blast is a inaccurate physical fighting move that is very |
|
powerful and has a 10% chance of lowering your Special Defense.
|
|
Destiny Bond is a nasty move that if Gengar uses it on you before you |
|
knock it out, you will faint. It will last up to 1 turn. Spite lowers |
|
your PP. Like other Gengar, Psychic, Ghost, and Dark moves are the way|
|
to beat it.
|
|
|
|
Finally, there is Houndoom. It has a Sitrus Berry and has Nasty Plot, |
|
Dark Pulse, Flamethrower, and Crunch. Nasty Plot raises Special Attack|
|
up two levels, and Dark Pulse is a fairly decent dark attack that also|
|
has a 20% chance of causing you to flinch. Be careful if it uses Nasty|
|
Plot, since that makes Flamethrower and Dark Pulse much more powerful.|
|
Houndoom is weak to Fighting, Ground, Rock, and Water attacks.
|
|
|
|
Recommended Pokemon include: Machoke/Machamp/Hitmonlee/Hitmonchan for |
|
Umbreon and Houndoom. Piloswine/Sneasel/Jynx for Vileplume and Murkrow|
|
and Kadabra/Alakazam for Vileplume and Gengar. Recommended attacks
|
|
include Ice Beam, Flamethrower, Psychic (For Vileplume and Gengar), |
|
Earthquake (for Houndoom), and a variety of attacks that her Pokemon |
|
might be weak against.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Finally, once you have beaten her, make sure you use any Hyper Potions/Full
Restores/Revives you can. Don't be afraid of restoring any PP you might have
lost with any Ethers or Elixirs you found along the way. Make sure you restore
rock and ice moves first, though.
If you have done well so far, then save. If not, then you might want to fight
the champion first before saving so you do not have to do it over again if you
are too underleveled. Once you are ready, keep going forward until you go into
auto mode, and fight the Champion, Lance.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Lance
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Gyarados lv 46 (Flying/Water)
|
|Dragonite lv 49 (Dragon/Flying)
|
|Dragonite lv 49 (Dragon/Flying)
|
|Aerodactyl lv 48 (Rock/Flying)
|
|Charizard lv 48 (Fire/Flying)
|
|Dragonite lv 50 (Dragon/Flying)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: The final battle! Lance is the last trainer in the Elite Four, and
|
|
is a former member of the organization. His team is very similar to |
|
his BY/FRLG team, but with 3 Dragonites instead of 1 and 2 Dragonairs |
|
and now with a Charizard. 4 of his Pokemon are very weak to Ice
|
|
attacks, so any you might have will be a big help. All have a common |
|
weakness to Rock, however, so that might be a alternate if you do not |
|
have that many Ice attacks. His lowest level Pokemon is 46, and his |
|
highest is 50, so your Pokemon should be around lv 45 and up. Any
|
|
lower and it can cause problems. Pokemon like Jynx, Gravler/Golem,
|
|
your own Gyarados with Ice Beam or Blizzard, or your starter is all |
|
good.
|
|
|
|
First up is Gyarados, and he has Dragon Pulse, Flail, Waterfall, and |
|
Ice Fang. Flail is a attack that goes up over time depending on how |

|
much damage has been done to Gyarados. At 100% health, its base power |
|
is 20. Below 35% health left, it is 80. It can go all the way up to |
|
200 base damage at around 4% health left, so be careful. Gyarados is |
|
4x weak to Electric attacks, so a single Thunderbolt or Thunder will |
|
quickly take care of it.
|
|
|
|
His second and third Pokemon are his identical Dragonites. They both |
|
have Thunder Wave, Hyper Beam and Dragon Rush, with the only main
|
|
difference being that one has Thunder and the other has Blizzard.
|
|
Dragon Rush is a powerful, but inaccurate dragon type move that also |
|
has a 20% chance of causing your Pokemon to flinch. Hyper Beam is a |
|
powerful special attack that attacks the first turn, and then requires|
|
the user to miss his next turn. Thunder Wave paralyzes you unless you |
|
are a ground Pokemon. Dragonite is weak to Rock and Dragon attacks, |
|
but is very weak to Ice, so Ice Beam or Blizzard are both preferred |
|
if you have one of those attacks.
|
|
|
|
Fourth is Aerodactyl, which has Thunder Fang, Rock Slide, Aerial Ace |
|
and Crunch. Aerodactyl actually has several weaknesses, including Rock|
|
Steel, Water, Electric, and Ice, so attacks like Surf, Thunderbolt, |
|
Thunder, Ice Beam and such are all good.
|
|
|
|
Fifth is Charizard, which has Air Slash, Fire Fang, Shadow Claw, and |
|
Dragon Claw. Air Slash is a slightly inaccurate flying move with a
|
|
30% chance of causing you to flinch. Shadow Claw is a ghost move
|
|
that is accurate and has a high critical hit chance. Dragon Claw is a |
|
powerful Dragon attack that is accurate. Charizard is weak to Water |
|
and Electric, and is 4x weak to Rock attacks, so Rock Throw or Slide |
|
would be good as well as Surf.
|
|
|
|
Finally, there is his lv 50 Dragonite. It has a Sitrus Berry attached |
|
and has Safeguard, Outrage, Fire Blast, and Hyper Beam. Safeguard
|
|
prevents status conditions like poison or paralyze for about 5 turns. |
|
Outrage is a very powerful Dragon move that lasts for 2-3 turns and |
|
then causes Dragonite to become confused. Be careful of this attack, |
|
since its base damage is 120 per attack. Like the other two Dragonites|
|
you will want to use Rock or Ice attacks.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat Lance, DJ. Mary and Prof Oak will come in and talk to you. Lance
will then take you to the back and register you in the hall of fame. Once you
do that, you will watch the credits, which shows all the major trainers you
have encountered in Johto along the way in order. Congratulations, you have
beaten the Johto portion of the game!
Once the Credits are over and you boot up your save, you will be in your room.
Head downstairs and your mother will mention that Prof. Elm wants to see you.
Go over to his lab and talk to him and he will give you the S.S. Ticket.
Once you got the S.S. Ticket, fly down to Olivine and go to the docks. You
will find Prof Oak already there and he will give you the National Dex. This
allows you to register Pokemon from Hoenn and Sinnoh in your Pokedex (Any
Pokemon you transferred over previously should be registered now).
Talk to the sailor blocking the entrance to the docks and he will move out of
your way. Go down the docks and then talk to the other sailor blocking the
way to the ship to ride on the S.S. Aqua.

\_______________________________________________________/
When you first enter the ship, you will run into a old man that mentions that
he cannot find his granddaughter. Anywho, each side of the ship has four
cabins, with the left side having the old man that you ran into in the upper
left room, the upper right has a Pokemon Fan and Twins, lower left one is
empty, while the lower right one has a hiker inside.
On the right side of the ship there is no one in the upper left cabin, the
upper right has a Firebreather inside, the lower left has a sleeping sailor
in it that will come into play later, and the lower right one is your cabin
where you can access the PC and heal your Pokemon by sleeping in the bed. One
thing you will notice if you battle the trainers is that many of the trainers
here have Hoenn and Sinnoh Pokemon. Many of the trainers on the Kanto side
will also have those Pokemon as well.
There is also a set of stairs that leads to the engine room below on the top
middle part. On the left side is a juggler who will fight you, while the
right side has a sailor that will fight and another sailor blocking the way

to the captains cabin. Once you have talked to the sailor downstairs, go
back upstairs and go in the lower left cabin on the right side where the
sleeping sailor was and talk to him. He will battle you, and then return to
his post.
Head back down to the basement and you will find that the sailor that was
blocking the way has moved. There is a Picknicker here you can fight, and a
ladder you can go up. Go up the ladder and you will be near the captains
quarters. Go inside and you will find the lost little girl and the captain.
Talk to them and the little girl will go and hide. Head back down the ladder
and go to the left side where the juggler is. She will be in the corner
trying to hide, although you can still see her.
She will then run back off to her grandfather and he will give you the Metal
Coat item, which increases the power of steel moves and makes it to where you
can evolve Scyther and Onix. Once you get the metal coat, you will be told
that the S.S. Aqua has landed in Vermillion City. Go back to the main lobby
and talk to the sailor blocking the way for him to move. Go through the
gatehouse and you will be on the docks of Vermillion City!
* Thanks to Kevin for the names of the trainers on the S.S. Aqua

Welcome to the Kanto guide, the second half of HeartGold and SoulSilver!
Unlike other games in the series, you have another 8 gyms to beat. The only
major difference is you can now do them in any order. This guide is written
in the order I took, so feel free to try a different path, since Kanto is
much more open ended now that you have all the HMs.

Good 'ol Vermillion, it has changed little over the past 3 years. If you saw
Suicune back in Cianwood and near Mt. Mortar, it will appear as you are
walking along the dock. Eustine will then come and talk to you about Suicune
and leave once Suicune runs off.
As for Vermillion itself, there is not much you can do right now. The right
exit near Diglett's Cave and Route 11 is blocked by a Snorlax, which you will
not be able to wake up until you do a side quest. You can go to the Vermillion
Fan Club (The house on top of the gym) and talk to the chairman. He will give
you a Rare Candy for listening to him.
If you surf in the water via the paths near the gym, you can find a small
piece of land made up of sand that has a Luck Incense on it. Anywho, you can
either choose to do the gym now, or wait. However, we will go ahead and
mention the gym.

Lt. Surge's Gym is slightly more lively then it was in Gen II, since it has
regained the same puzzle it had in RBY and FRLG. Same rules apply: there is a
random switch in one of the trash cans, with the other switch right next to
it either on the left, right, above, or below the trash can that had the
switch. If you fail to find it, the switches will randomize again. One trick
you can use is save your game once you find a switch, and then reload if you
do not find the second one. Once you find both switches, the path to Lt. Surge
will open.

|Info: Ah, Lt. Surge...One of the few Americans in the game. He is also one |
|
that might be a little tough, since he has 5 Pokemon and yours should |
|
be roughly around the same level. All of his Pokemon share a common |
|
weakness: Ground. If you got a Golem, Onix/Steelix, or a similar
|
|
ground Pokemon with Magnitude or Earthquake, this will be a easy
|
|
battle. Otherwise, make sure to bring your strongest Pokemon.
|
|
|
|
His first Pokemon is Raichu, which has Thunder Wave, Shock Wave, Quick|
|
Attack, and Double Team. One common trend you will find with most of |
|
Surge's Pokemon is most of them will have Shock Wave (A move that does|
|
not miss) and Double Team (A move that makes it hard for you to hit |
|
his Pokemon. Thunder Wave is a nasty move that paralyzes you, so be |
|
careful of that. Like I said earlier, a ground Pokemon will be immune |
|
to all besides Quick Attack, so use that.
|
|
|

|
Next up is the two Electrode he has. Both have Double Team, but one |
|
has Thunder Wave, Shock Wave, and Light Screen, while the other has |
|
Screech, SelfDestruct, and Charge Beam. Light Screen is a move that |
|
halves Special Attack moves, Screech lowers your defense two levels, |
|
Selfdestruct is a powerful Normal move that knocks out the user, but |
|
does a ton of damage to your Pokemon, and Charge Beam is a somewhat |
|
weak Electric move, but has a very high chance of increasing the users|
|
Special stat, making the move do more damage. Ground, once again, is |
|
the way to go, since all of their attacks outside of Selfdestruct are |
|
Electric moves.
|
|
|
|
Third is Magneton, which has Supersonic, Double Team, Shock Wave, and |
|
Mirror Shot. Supersonic has a chance of confusing you, and Mirror shot|
|
is a average damaging steel type attack that also has a 30% chance of |
|
lowering your accuracy. Magneton is the only dual type Pokemon on his |
|
team, so Fire attacks will work on it.
|
|
|
|
Finally, there is his Electabuzz, which has Quick Attack, Shock Wave, |
|
Light Screen, and Low Kick. Low Kick does damage based on the weight |
|
of the Pokemon he uses it on. Lighter Pokemon do not take as much
|
|
damage, while heavy Pokemon take the most. Like all the other Pokemon |
|
on Surge's team, Ground will work the best.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat Lt. Surge, he will give you the Thunder Badge and TM34, Shock
Wave. One nice touch is you will now be able to see the Kanto gym badges on
your status screen, a feature that was absent from Gen II. Once you are ready
to leave, head north to Route 6.

When you first enter the route, you can get TM62 (Silver Wind) by going on the
left path when you first enter. There are several trainers here, including a
pair of twins for a double battle, and all of them have unique National Dex
Pokemon from Hoenn and Sinnoh.
When you get to the end of the route, you will find that the underground path
is closed due to a power shortage. Because of that, you can only use the
gatehouse to enter Saffron City.

Saffron has had a few chances since the last time you were here. In the upper
left corner is the Magnet Train Station, which will take you back to Goldenrod
once you get a ticket. You will not be able to do anything with it now, so
ignore it. The Copycat House has moved down a little below where the magnet
train station is, on the left of Sliph Co. You will need to go there later for
a side quest.
Sliph Co. has a few things to check out, but not too much. The guard won't let
you go up on the top floors like in GSC, but he will give you a Upgrade to
evolve your Porygon into a Porygon2 in a trade. Also, if you have a Rotom at
the beginning of your party, you can take the elevator down to a lower level
where the appliances from the secret room in Platinum are, allowing you to
change Rotom's form.
In the lower right of the city, you can find a house that has Mr. Psychic
inside, he will give you TM 29 (Psychic) when you talk to him. As for the
upper right part of the city, the Dojo is still there but is currently empty
since the Dojo master is at Mt. Mortar. It will come into play later on in
the game, though. The Saffron Gym is right next to it, which we will get to
in a minute. The upper gatehouse leads to Cerulean, the left one leads to
Celadon, and the right one leads to Lavender Town.

The gym is the same layout it was in the previous games, only with less
trainers. if you do not know, there are 9 rooms total spread out in a 3 x 3
grid, with the entrance and gym leader room counting in those 9. There are 4
trainers total, all with Psychic Pokemon, although each has one with a dual
type.
If you want to get to Sabrina, then keep warping until you are in the upper
left room in the 3 x 3 grid (If you are not sure, it would be 10 'o Clock if
the Gym was shaped like a clock). Use the lower left warp tile to go to the
Gym Leader Room.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Sabrina
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Espeon lv 53 (Psychic)
|
|Mr. Mime lv 53 (Psychic)
|
|Alakazam lv 55 (Psychic)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Sabrina has gotten a new look since her GSC and FRLG days, now
|
|
sporting a more casual look. Unlike Surge, she only has 3 Pokemon
|
|
although all three of them are above lv 50. Dark and Ghost types are |
|
the best types to use, so moves such as Crunch or Shadow Ball are all |
|
good. Be careful of using Gengar though, since it is part Poison type.|
|
|
|
First up is Espeon, which has Calm Mind, Shadow Ball, Psychic, and
|
|
Skill Swap. All three of Sabrina's Pokemon have Skill Swap and it is |
|
her signature move for HG/SS. Skill Swap changes abilities with your |
|
Pokemon, so be careful of using a Pokemon that might have a really
|
|
good ability. Calm Mind increases Espeon's Special Attack and Defense |
|
each turn, making it more powerful and harder to hit. Psychic and
|
|
Shadow Ball are both a very powerful Psychic and Ghost move in that |
|
order.
|
|
|
|
Next up is Mr. Mime, which has Mimic, Light Screen, Psychic, and Skill|
|
Swap. Light Screen halves the damage of Special attacks, while Mimic |
|
copies your last move. Its only attack outside of Mimic is Psychic, so|
|
dark users will have resistance.
|
|
|
|
Finally, there is Sabrina's Alakazam, which has Psychic, Skill Swap, |
|
Reflect, and Energy Ball. Reflect halves the damage of physical
|
|
attacks, while Energy Ball is a powerful Grass type move that has a |
|
10% chance of lowering your Special Defense.
|
|
|
|
Like I stated before, each of Sabrina's Pokemon is a pure Psychic
|
|
type, so bug, ghost, and dark moves are the best to use. Jolteon with |
|
Pin Missile, any Pokemon with Shadow Ball or Crunch also works best. |
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat her, she will give you the Marsh Badge and TM 48 (Skill Swap).
You now have a choice, if you want to get the power back on, then head to
Cerulean City and go to the power plant to the east. However, for the sake of
this guide, we will make a counter clock motion and go to Celadon first.

Not much to this route, although it does have a few exclusive Pokemon. You
have a second chance to capture Growlithe or Vulpix if you did not do so
earlier, and can also capture the rare Houndour at night. You can also find
a Mental Herb by going up north past the grass patch. The underground path
to the Lavender Towns side is permanently closed off, so head west for now
into Celadon.

Ah, just as big as it was in the previous games. If you go up on the path near
the Pokemon center and follow it to the left side behind the Celadon

Department Store, you can find TM 67 (Recycle). Also, if you go to the


Restaurant in Celadon, you can find Maylene from D/P/Pl eating there.
One small change from Gen II is you won't be able to enter the back of
Celadon Mansion, and going inside will not let you get that far, since
elevator leading up to the third floor is closed off for now. Once you
all 16 badges however, you can come back and get the GB Sounds: A item
changes the music in the game to the old Gen II versions.

Before you head to the gym, you might want to check out a few places, like the
Celadon Department Store and the Game Corner.

==================
|Japanese Version|
==============================================================================
Slightly redesigned from Gen II, the Game Corner now has the attendants in the
middle of the room with the two rows of slot machines on each side. The slots
are the exact same as they are in Goldenrod, and the same coins will work here
as well.
==============================================================================
And, for the US version:
=================================
|North American and PAL versions|
==============================================================================
Like the Goldenrod Game Corner, the Celadon Game Corner has also been
drastically redesigned, now looking the same as it did in Goldenrod minus the
two attendants and the NPC that watches over the Celadon Gym
==============================================================================
At the Prize Building, you can get a few rare Pokemon, such as Eevee and
Porygon. There is also a guy here that will tell you what type of Hidden Power
your Pokemon is using.
Once you are ready, head to the Celadon Gym. You will still need cut to get to
it, so make sure you have a Pokemon that can use it.

Out of all the Gyms in Kanto, Celadon is
a bit since Gen I, II, and III. There is
navigate, where the wrong turn will lead
cut in the gym as well. To get to Erika,

one of the few that has changed quite


now a log maze that you have to
you toward a trainer. You will need
follow these directions:

1. Use cut on the middle log and go left when there is a opening.
2. Go up and then go right, and then go up the path until you are in the far
right log.
3. Keep going up until you find a exit to the right, and then go up and then
left, and then go down and go left into the middle one.
4. Go up and go through the left path. Go down, and then left, and then up
and left. Use cut on the tree and go right some more and cut through
the other tree. Go up and you will find Erika.

|Info: Erika has not changed much since FR/LG or GSC, although her team is |
|
now much stronger, on average being about 10 levels higher. Unlike the|
|
previous two gym leaders, several of her Pokemon have multiple types, |
|
with Jumpluff having a flying type and Victreebel having a Poison
|
|
type. She has multiple weaknesses, with the most effective being ice, |
|
fire, flying, and Psychic for Victreebel.
|
|
|
|
Her first Pokemon is Jumpluff, which has Leech Seed, U-Turn, Giga
|
|
Drain, and Sunny Day. Giga Drain is her staple attack, which has a
|
|
base of 60 damage and the Pokemon using it recovers 1/2 of the damage |
|
done to the other Pokemon. U-Turn is the same move Bugsy uses, which |
|
damages the Pokemon and then switches out to another one. Leech Seed |
|
slowly saps your energy at the end of each turn and recovers some of |
|
Jumpluff's HP. Finally, Sunny Day is a move that boosts Fire attacks, |
|
but also allows the instant use of Solar Beam. Jumpluff is majorly
|
|
weak to Ice attacks, so use Ice Beam if you have it.
|
|
|
|
Her second Pokemon is Tangela, which knows Ancientpower, Wring Out, |
|
Giga Drain, and Sleep Powder. Ancientpower is a rock Move that has a |
|
small chance of boosting Tangela's stats up. Wring Out is a normal
|
|
type move that does more damage depending on the users HP. It is based|
|
on this: 120 x Your Current HP/Your Max HP. The lower your HP is, the |
|
weaker the attack is. Sleep Powder does what is says: Puts you to
|
|
sleep.
|
|
|
|
Next is Victreebel, which has Sunny Day, Grass Knot, Leaf Storm, and |
|
Razor Leaf. Grass Knot is similar to Low Kick in that the higher the |
|
weight of the Pokemon, the more damage it does. Leaf Storm is like
|

|
Overheat where is has a very high base damage of 140, but lowers the |
|
users attack two levels. Finally, Razor Leaf is a average grass attack|
|
with a higher crit ratio. Victreebel is also weak to Psychic moves due|
|
to its Poison type, so that might be a type to use.
|
|
|
|
Her final Pokemon is Bellossom, which has Sunny Day, SolarBeam, Giga |
|
Drain, and Synthesis. If she uses Sunny Day before using Solar Beam, |
|
then it will not require any charging up. Synthesis is also affected |
|
by Sunny Day, since it will recover 2/3s of its HP when it is in
|
|
effect.
|
|
|
|
The best Pokemon to use during this battle is fire Pokemon, since
|
|
Sunny Day benefits them most of the time more then Erika's own
|
|
Pokemon. Fire Blast and Flamethrower are both good ones to use, as
|
|
well as Ice Beam and Blizzard.

Once you beat her, you will get TM19 (Giga Drain) and the Rainbow Badge.

Route 16 has changed slightly since the FRLG days, now having a elevated area
where you need cut to get to the grass patch. If you go further down past the
area you cut at, you will find the house you got fly from in FRLG, although
there is not much of interest there. Once you are ready, head further down to
the gatehouse. You must be on your bike to enter Cycling Road, or they will
not let you pass.

Cycling Road has changed quite a bit since the last time you saw it. There are
now two paths: Each with their own amount of bikers. This is a good area if
you want to train for the upcoming gym due to all the trainers. This is also
one of the few places you can catch a Slugma at, so make sure you pick one up.
When you reach the bottom, you will be on Route 18.

Not much to Route 18. It is the bottom of the Cycling Route, and the first
part of the route is the area before you reach Fuchisia City. You can fight

some bird tamers on the other side of the gatehouse if you want. The Pokemon
here are the same ones you saw on Cycling Road. Head east to enter Fuchisia
City.

Fuchisia has changed quite a bit in the 3 years since the previous games, now
looking more...Fuchisia. Like the previous games, the Safari Zone has been
taken out, but has now been replaced with the Pal Park. It is similar to the
one from D/P/Pl, but now drops the per day limit like the previous games had.
Near the gate to the Pal Park is a Juggler that will trade you 3 berries for
shards.

Otherwise, there is not much else to do. If you try to go south, you will find
the beach to be barricaded. You can go east onto Route 15, but you might want
to fight the gym leader before you continue.

Similar to the first games where there is a invisible barrier blocking your
way, you will have to navigate the Fuchisia gym in a similar manner. However,
the new trick is that everyone in the gym is disguised as the gym leader. In
the previous generations, Janine was on the left side. However, in HG/SS, she
is now in the middle like her father was. Go around the right side and follow
the path until you reach the middle.

|
|Venomoth lv 50 (Bug/Poison)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Janine is one of the new Gym Leaders of Kanto, and is Koga's daughter,|
|
meaning many of her Pokemon are similar. All of her Pokemon are part |
|
poison, with 3 out of the 5 being Bug types, making them extra weak to|
|
flying and fire, and the other being part flying and being weak to
|
|
ice, rock, and electric attacks.
|
|
|
|
Her first Pokemon is Crobat, which has Confuse Ray, Screech, Wing
|
|
Attack, and Supersonic. Screech lowers your defense two levels, and |
|
Supersonic and Confuse Ray have a chance of causing confusion. Ice, |
|
Electric, Rock, and Psychic attacks are all effective here.
|
|
|
|
Second up is Weezing, which has Toxic, Explosion, Sludge Bomb, and
|
|
Double Hit. Sludge Bomb is a special poison move which has a 30%
|

|
chance of poisoning the target, and explosion is a very powerful move |
|
that causes Weezing to faint, but does a lot of damage to your
|
|
Pokemon. Weezing is the only pure Poison type on her team, so you can |
|
really only use Psychic against it to get a super effective hit,
|
|
since Weezing has levitate and cannot be affected by ground type
|
|
moves.
|
|
|
|
Her third and fourth Pokemon are Ariados, both being the same level |
|
but having two different moves. Both have Poison Jab and Pin Missile, |
|
while one has Swagger and Night Shade and the other having Psychic and|
|
screech. Swagger increases your attack two levels, but causes you to |
|
become confused, while Night Shade does damage based on your current |
|
level, so if you are lv 50 you will take 50 damage. Psychic, Ground, |
|
Fire, and Flying are all effective.
|
|
|
|
Her final Pokemon is Venomoth, which has Double Team, Psychic, Sludge |
|
Bomb, and Signal Beam ans has a Sitrus Berry for when its HP gets low.|
|
Double Team increases its evasiveness, which allows it to dodge your |
|
attacks the more it uses it, and Signal Beam is a bug type move that |
|
has a 10% chance of causing confusion. Like Ariados, it is weak to
|
|
Flying, Fire, and Psychic attacks.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat her, she will give you the Soul Badge and TM84 (Poison Jab). Now
that you have that out of the way, head east to Route 15.

Route 15 has changed a little bit since the old days. It now slopes down when
you are leaving from Fuchsia, and requires you to go on the upper path if you
are coming from Route 14. You can get a Rose Incense by going down the slope
from Fuchsia, and you can get a PP Up from the Item Ball by taking the upper
path. Keep going right and you will reach route 14.

A semi-small route, but still somewhat important. If you stick to the right

side where the wind generators are, you will see Suicune and Eustine will
come and talk to you. Keep going up north to Route 13.

Route 13 is the same as it
maze. Your main goal is to
straightforward. There are
items if you press A. Keep

has always been, full of trainers and is a gigantic


get to the right side, although the path is pretty
a couple of dead ends where you can get some hidden
going right and go up until you reach Route 12.

Route 12 is as big as it has always been, although it now lacks a few of the
platforms for fishing up near the beginning of the route. When you reach the
halfway point, you will find a house with a fisherman inside who will give you
a Super Rod if you talk to him. You can also get a calcium if you chop down
the tree that is below the house.
You can either go to Route 11 by going west near the house, although the end
of that route is blocked by a Snorlax, or you can keep going up to Lavender
Town, where you need to go next.

Lavender Town has not changed much since GSC. Pokemon Tower has been converted
into a radio tower like before, and the graves moves to a memorial site below
the tower. The Pokemon name rater's tent also appears if you want to get your
Pokemon's name changed.
At this point, you have one of two choices:
1. You can go north through the rock tunnel and head to Cerulean that way.
However, you will need to have a Pokemon with Flash before you can enter,
and if you do not you will have to wait until later.
or
2. Go through the route on your left to Saffron, and then take the route up
to Cerulean
For the sake of this guide, we will take the Rock Tunnel route.

When you first enter the route, you will see a boulder puzzle. If you push the
boulder up, you can get the item ball with TM 69 (Rock Polish). Also, if you
encounter the trainer on the right, then you will have to go back to Lavender
Town and re-enter so the trainer resets. Once you are ready, enter the Rock
Tunnel.

* Note that the directions for the Rock Tunnel is if you went via Lavender
Town. If you are coming from Cerulean to Lavender, then the directions
will be in reverse.
Rock Tunnel is about the same as it was before, although it now has the
addition of many different optional Rock Climbable walls. Like I stated before
you will need Flash before entering, or else you will have to take the other
route to get to Cerulean. Anywho, here is how you get through the cave:

There is a rock climb-able wall at the bottom where you can get a oval stone on
the far left one, a hidden HP Up in the middle one on the second rock at the
bottom, and a Iron on the far right one. Go around the rocks near the two
middle rock climbable walls and go up, and then left to find the ladder.

There is two paths: A upper and lower one. The upper one takes you to a closed
off area with a revive, while the bottom one takes you where you need to go.
You will then hit a point where you can go two different directions.
The lower path takes you to a small area with a PP Up, while the right path
takes you to another point where there is two places you can go. The lower
path brings you to a area with smash-able rocks, while the left path takes you
to a ladder leading up.

The other side of Route 10 still has its Pokemon Center, so go and heal if
you need it. Your first stop should be the newly renovated Power Plant.

Go up the route a little ways and then use surf on the water and go down. Talk
to everyone inside, and then try to leave. The guard will stop you and mention
that the thief was spotted in Cerulean City.

* Note that this Route is written in a way where you are coming from Rock
Tunnel. If you are coming from Cerulean, then the directions will be in
reverse.
Quite a few trainers still on the route, many of them hikers. Near the end
of the route is a tree that you can cut down on the left to find a item ball
with some Light Clay inside, and a tree on the right to find a item ball with
TM 91 (Flash Cannon). Once you are at the end of the route, you will be in
Cerulean City.

Ah, Cerulean...As you can see, it is much bigger then you remember it, and has
a little bit more to do. The old bike shop is still open, but there is not
much inside. If you go up a little bit, you will see that Cerulean Cave is
back, but like before you will not be able to enter it right now. Once you are
ready, go inside the gym. The gym will be empty for the most part, with all
the trainers and the gym leader gone.
If you have not gone to the power plant yet, you will not find anyone, but if

you did then a Team Rocket grunt will run past you. Once you are ready, head
up to Route 24 and the Nugget Bridge.

As you are walking along the bridge, you will see the grunt and he will try to
blend into a crowd of people. When he does that, talk to him and he will fight
you.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Rocket Grunt
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Golbat lv 39 (Flying/Poison)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: While not really a boss, this Rocket Grunt is a part of the story.
|
|
Despite being the only Rocket Grunt you fight on the Kanto side, he |
|
only has a Golbat, which can be taken out with a electric, ice, or
|
|
psychic attack.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
After you beat him, he will tell you that he hid the Machine Part in the
Cerulean Gym. Head back to Cerulean City and into the gym again.
+============+
|Cerulean Gym|
+============+

Unlike GSC, the Machine Part is hidden in a different location. Head to the
upper left side of the gym near the giant life guard tower. Press the A Button
near the Buoy and you will find the machine part. Exit the gym and head back
to Route 9, and then 10, and swim back to the power Plant.
+===========+
|Power Plant|
+===========+
Once inside, talk to the fat guy that is on the ledge and he will re-install
the part and the power will be back on. He will then give you TM 57, Charge
Beam. Once you are done here, exit and fly back to Cerulean.
With the power back on, you can do several things, but for now lets focus on
getting the next badge. Head back onto route 24 and then you will eventually
reach Route 25.

Like in GSC, the Nugget Bridge test has been moved to Route 25, where you
will face 6 trainers. You can't really avoid them (except the last one),
since they are lined up in a way where you cannot bypass them in any way.
There is also a extra trainer here that is not related to the group, but
you can avoid him if you want to.
Near the end of the route you will find a tree that you can cut down to get a
protein. Once you get up to where Bill's old house was in RBY/FRLG, you will
find a new ledge that has Misty on it with a date. The guy will run off when
you get close, and Misty will get mad at you and then go back to the gym. Once
you are done here, go back to Cerulean and go to the gym one final time.

You can avoid most of the trainers by going on the right side, although going
in the pool will give you more exp. If the top sailor stops you, you can exit
and re-enter the gym and they will reset. When you are at the back of the gym,
go up the ladder and talk to misty to challenge her.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Misty
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Golduck lv 49 (Water)
|
|Quagsire lv 49 (Water/Ground)
|
|Lapras lv 52 (Water/Ice)
|
|Starmie lv 54 (Water/Psychic)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Misty has changed quite a bit since she first appeared as a kid in
|
|
FRLG, now looking more like a teenage girl. Besides Golduck, each of |
|
Misty's Pokemon have a secondary type that you can fight against. She |
|
is about 5 levels higher then she was in GSC, so make sure you have |
|
raised your team enough.
|
|
|
|
First up is Golduck with Water Pulse, Disable, and Psychic. Water
|
|
Pulse is Misty's signature move which has a 20% chance of confusing |
|
your Pokemon, and Disable makes it where you cannot use your last move|
|
for several turns. Golduck is the only pure water Pokemon, so Grass |
|
and Electric attacks are all good.
|
|
|
|
Her second Pokemon is Quagsire, which has Water Pulse, Amnesia, Rain |
|
Dance, and Earthquake. Rain Dance will cause its Water Pulse to become|
|
stronger, while Amnesia greatly increases the Special Defense of the |
|
user. Electric attacks will not work on it, so Grass attacks are the |
|
best way to go.
|
|
|
|
Third is Lapras, which has Ice Beam, Sing, Water Pulse, and Body Slam.|
|
Body Slam has a 30% chance of paralyzing you, while Sing will put you |
|
to sleep. If you are already paralyzed, it will not work. Fighting, |
|
Rock, Grass, and Electric moves are all very powerful and will do
|
|
2x damage.
|
|
|
|
Finally, there is Starmie, which has a Sitrus Berry for when its HP |
|
gets low and has Water Pulse, Confuse Ray, Ice Beam, and Recover.
|

|
Recover can be tricky, since it restores 1/2 of the users HP. Starmie |
|
has a number of weaknesses, including Bug, Ghost, Grass, Electric and |
|
dark attacks.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat Misty, she will give you the Cascade Badge and TM03 (Water
Pulse). Now that you are done with Cerulean, go south onto Route 5.

Route 5 is pretty small this time around. Like in GSC, the daycare man is
gone and in his place is a old woman who will give you a Cleanse Tag. There
is also a rock climbable wall near the end of the route, but it leads to
nowhere.
If the power is still off, then there will be a guy here near the end of the
route that will block your entrance until you turn the power back on. If it
is on, then you will be able to use it as a shortcut to Vermillion. Also, if
you bought a RageCandybar back in Mahogany Town, you can trade it with a
trainer here to get TM 64 (Explosion).
At this point, there are several side quests you will need to go on to get
several things for you to continue. Here is a list so you can complete all
of them. You will need to have the power back on to do all of these, so
read the Cerulean section to find out how to do all of this.
+================+
|Getting the Pass|
+================+
Head to Saffron City and talk to the Copycat, who is in a house located near

the top part of the Sliph. Co building. She, herself, is located on the second
floor of the house. Once you have talked to her, go to Vermillion.
When you are in Vermillion, go to the Pokemon Fan Club. Talk to the fat man on
the table and he will give you a lost item (A Clefairy Doll that the player
character in RBY/HGSS gave to her). When you leave, Steven Stone from Ruby/
Sapphire/Emerald will appear and mention that one of the Lati@s twins have
been spotted in Kanto or Johto. Latias will be available for HeartGold
players, while Latios for SoulSilver. You can catch the other versions
exclusive in a special event.
Anywho,
Copycat
located
the two

now that you have the Lost Item, head back to Saffron and talk to the
to give it back to her. She will give you a Pass for the Magnet Train
in Goldenrod and Saffron, which can be used as a means to get between
without having to go through Tohjo falls.

+==========================+
|Getting the Expansion Card|
+==========================+
If you are still in Saffron, go to the right gate to end up on Route 8.

There are still quite a few trainers on this route. If you want to capture
any Pokemon, you will need to bring cut to reach the area where the grass is
like in previous versions. Like in GSC, the Underground Path is permanently
closed and will not reopen for anything. Once you are ready, head right to
enter Lavender Town.
+=============+
|Lavender Town|
+=============+
Once you are back in Lavender Town, go to the Radio Tower (Formerly the
Pokemon Tower) and talk to the guy near the stairs. He will thank you for
turning the power back on and give you a expansion card, which allows you
access to the Pokeflute Channel.
+=================+
|Waking up Snorlax|
+=================+
If you have gotten the Expansion Card, head back to Vermillion and east onto
Route 11.

Before you go and fight Snorlax, make sure you have everything you need. Ultra
Balls, Dark Balls (at night), and Heavy Balls are all recommended if you
intend to capture it. Also bring along Pokemon that might know False Swipe, or
Thief.
Once you are ready, access the Radio. The Pokeflute Channel will be on the
very top of the globe, and might be hard to pinpoint. When it is playing, talk
to Snorlax and it will fight you.
/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Snorlax
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Level 50
|
|Normal
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Even though Snorlax is not a legendary Pokemon, he sure fights like |
|
one, and this is this is the only one available in the game. Snorlax |

|
is pretty unique and comes with Leftovers, which recovers its HP each |
|
turn. As for moves, it has Giga Impact, Block, Rollout, and Crunch. |
|
Giga Impact is like a new version of Hyper Beam, and has a base damage|
|
of 150, so be careful of it. Block prevents you from switching out, |
|
so make sure the Pokemon you called out is one that can stand up to |
|
Snorlax OK.
|
|
|
|
If you have a Pokemon that can do decent damage to Snorlax, now would |
|
be a good time to use it. Dusk balls at night and Heavy Balls are both|
|
recommended, although Ultra Balls will also work OK. If you run from |
|
Snorlax, he will disappear, so only use it if you do not want to
|
|
capture Snorlax.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat it, you will have access to Route 11. Route 11 is pretty much
the same as it has always been, and has a few trainers. You can also find
TM 86 (Gras Knot) by going on the upper right side and finding a Item Ball
with it inside.
At the end
Fuchsia or
other side
before you

is a gatehouse that leads to Route 12, which then leads to either


Lavender Town. For now, however, enter Diglett's Cave to reach the
of Kanto. Make sure you bring a Pokemon that knows cut with you
enter.

Diglett's cave is more advanced now, having multiple levels that you cannot
access right now due to lack of rock climb. Once you do get it, you can use it
on the first left rock climb wall to find a rare PP Max. The second rock
climbable wall on the left has a calcium when you go up one space, look up,
and press A. The right rock climbable wall has a path you can follow to get
a rock incense.
However, for now, just continue on through the cave like normal until you
reach Route 2. Some of the Diglett have Arena Trap, which forces you to
fight them until you knock them out or capture them, so you might want to
being along a few repels.

When you exit the cave, you can find a item ball with a Carbos in it by going
behind the cave entrance. Go down a little ways and go inside the house and

talk to the man inside to get a nugget. Go down even further past the house
and you will find a gatehouse with one of Prof. Oaks aids who will give you
a Sacred Ash (Your second if you fought Ho-Oh already). Past the gatehouse
and you will find a item ball with a Elixir.
Once you are ready to get out of this area, cut down the tree. You can either
go to the Viridian Forest right now, or head to Viridian City. Since you want
a flight path, I would go to Viridian City real quick.

As you can see, there is not much to do in Viridian City. You can go west onto
Route 22 and head toward the Pokemon League, but you will not be able to do
much. You can also go down through the Gatehouse and on Route 1 to reach Pallet
Town, but we will cover that later. Like in RBY/FRLG/GSC, the Gym Leader is
currently not in, and will not be in until you get 15 badges. You can go to
the Trainer House and fight the trainer inside for Battle Frontier Points, but
other then that, there is nothing to do. Heal at the Pokemon Center and head
to north back onto Route 2 to reach Viridian Forest.

A new addition for HGSS, the Viridian Forest has been restored to what it was
from RBY/FRLG, but now has some elevated areas. There are some parts of the
forest where you will need a Pokemon with cut, so bring one along if you want
to get some of the items.
Near the entrance is a tree you can cut down that will lead you down a path
where you can get a Leaf Stone. On the far right side of the forest is a
item ball with TM 77 (Psych Up) in it. If you go on the right path, you will
eventually find a Blue Flute, which acts similar to a Poke Flute from
previous games. To get out of the forest, go down the left path when you have
the option, and you will eventually find a exit. You will then be on the other
side of Roue 2. Keep going north and you will reach Pewter City.

Pewter City has a few more things to do then in GSC. The Pewter Museum is now
back in business, but is a bit smaller this time around, but does not charge
admission. If you have any Fossils, you can have them restored by talking to
the scientist. Also, if you have the special Soul Dew event item, you can
face one of the Lati@s twins here depending on your version. If you have
Rock Smash, go down the path on the left side of the pewter museum and you
will find a item ball with the Wise Glasses item. It is a rather handy tool
that raises your Special Attack moves by 10%
Like in
get the
before,
then it

GSC, you can talk to the old guy next to the Pokemon Mart to either
Rainbow Wing in SoulSilver, or the Silver Wing in HeartGold. Like
the other version's mascot will be lv 70 and have a different move set
normally would, so keep that in mind.

Once you are ready, go to the Pewter Gym.

\_______________________________________________________/
Not much of a puzzle here. You can either fight the trainers head-on, or take
the path to go around them. At the end of the gym is Brock.

/____________________________________________________________________________\
|Boss: Brock
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Pokemon:
|
|Gravler lv 51 (Rock/Ground)
|
|Rhyhorn lv 51 (Rock/Ground)
|
|Omastar lv 53 (Water/Rock)
|
|Onix lv 54 (Rock/Ground)
|
|Kabutops lv 52 (Rock/Water)
|
|____________________________________________________________________________|
|Info: Brock has not changed much since his GSC days, although his Pokemon |
|
are about 7-10 levels higher then they were previously. One advantage |
|
that you have is that all of his Pokemon are 4x weak against Grass
|
|
Pokemon, so people with a Meganium or a equally strong Grass type will|
|
do just fine. Also, Sunny Day + Solarbeam will pretty much wipe Brock |
|
out very quickly.
|
|
|
|
First is Gravler, which has Earthquake, Defense Curl, Rock Slide, and |
|
Rollout. You have seen this all before, so there is nothing new. Grass|
|
and water types work well here, so use Surf or Solarbeam.
|
|
|
|
Second is Rhyhorn, which has Earthquake, Scary Face, Sandstorm, and |
|
Horn Drill. Scary Face lowers your speed twice, and Horn Drill has a |
|
30% Chance of knocking you out if it hits, but it happens so rarely |
|
and has such low PP that it is very rare. Make sure you bring along |
|
a revive or two just in case, though. Rhyhorn is the same as Gravler |
|
and goes down quickly to Grass and Water attacks.
|
|
|
|
Omastar his is third and his first dual-water type Pokemon. It has
|
|
Spike Cannon, AncientPower, Brine, and Protect. Spike Cannon is a move|
|
similar to ones like DoubleSlap and such. Brine does damage based on |
|
what your HP is. When your HP is above 50%, its base power is only
|
|
65. However, once it goes below 50%, it will double and be 130. Make |
|
sure your HP does not fall below 50% when battling Omastar if you can |
|
help it. Protect prevents any damage for that turn, but decreases in |
|
accuracy if used again right after. Omastar is 4x weak to Grass, and |
|
2x weak to Fighting, Ground, and Electric attacks.
|
|
|
|
Next up is his trademark Onix, which has Rock Slide, Iron Tail,
|
|
Sandstorm, and Screech. Once again, nothing that you cannot handle on |
|
your own. Use either Grass or Water attacks on it.
|
|
|
|
Finally, there is Kabutops, which has Rock Slide, Aqua Jet, Endure, |
|
and Giga Drain. Aqua Jet is like a water version of Quick Attack, so |
|
it will go first no matter what your speed is. Endure allows it to
|
|
survive a attack that it wound normally faint against, but like
|
|
Protect will fail the more it is used. Like Omastar, Grass is the most|
|
effective against it overall.
|
\____________________________________________________________________________/
Once you beat him, he will give you the Boulder Badge and TM 80 (Rock Slide).
You now have a option: You can either go to Route 3 and go through Mt. Moon
in a optional side quest, or head back to Viridian and go to Pallet Town. For
the sake of this guide, we will head through Route 3 first.

Route 3 is fairly similar to how it was back in Gen III, and now even has the
Pokecenter at the end of the route back. For those that have a Deoxys, the
mete
