Pokemon Red Version solve - Platform: Gameboy Advance
Submitted by: Divydeep Agarwal
POKEMON RED WALKTHROUGH
This the starting place of the game. Your mom will tell you that Professor Oak
wants you. Try to leave the town and Professor Oak will come get you.
He leads you to his lab, where you will be able to choose your first
Pokémon. There are Bulbasaur, a plant-type Pokémon; Charmander, a fire-type
Pokémon; and Squirtle, and water-type Pokémon. Your rival, John, will pick
up another Pokémon which is stronger. When you try to leave, John will
challenge you to a Pokémon duel.Your first Pokémon will be level 5 to start with, so if you keep
it strong, it will be a very good asset.Better get a squirtle.
Go back to your house. On the PC, you can withdraw a Potion from your
hard drive. Your mom will, starting now, give free rests to you and
your Pokemon, acting as a pokemon center without the computer.
This leads north to Viridian city. You'll encounter Pidgeys and Ratattas.
Defeat some for experience and try to raise at lease two levels for your
A boy on the way explains that he is a Poke Mart worker at Viridian City,
and he will give you a free Potion as a sample.
Talk to the Shop clerk and then head back to Pallet Town with the Parcel.
Give it to Professor Oak and he will give you and John each a Pokédex, which is
an electronic encyclopedia. He will tell you of his dream to complete
the pokedex to you.John will act arrogant and walk off, but you can get a Town Map from his
sister.Go back to the city.
The gym's doors are locked, and they won't unlock for a very long time
until you've beaten the other 7 trainers in the game. Buy some Poke Balls
and talk to the old man to learn how to capture Pokemon. A boy will talk
about caterpillar Pokemon.
About the old man, if you go left from him, you will see a tree. Go around
the other side and you will get a POTION.
If you go west towards the Pokemon HQ, you will fight John. He captured
another Pokemon. After you fight him, he will tell you that you need Badges to
go through. Around here, you can also pick up a few Nidorans if you want.
Pick up a Pidgey and/or a Ratatta. You can get higher-level ones in the
future, but if you train hard they will grow stronger better than the
higher-leveled ones. You can also get Caterpies and Weedles.
First of all, right when you get in, there is a man next to a tree. Go
above the man, look at the tree, and press A for an Antidote.
On your way through Viridian Forest, you should pick up a Pikachu ,a
Caterpie, and a Weedle. Don't get Kakunas and Metapods. There are a few easy trainers in
the forest, they are Bug-catchers and use bugs, so fire works very well on
them. The first has a pair of caterpillars at Lv. 6 (Caterpie/Weedle). The
second has 2 Lv. 7 Weedles and a Lv. 7 Kakuna. The final trainer has a
Lv. 9 Weedle.
There is a Poke Ball, Anidote and a Potion in the forest.
By the way, the Pikachu is a VERY good asset because its only weakness
is against ground Pokemon. It will learn awesome attacks later on as well.
Don't turn it into Raichu using ThunderStone, I suggest.
Pewter City (Boulderbadge)
The Gym here starts out with a JR. Trainer with a Lv. 11 Diglett and
Lv. 11 Sandshrew. You probably never met these two, but a good hint is
that Diglett will be strong against your Pikachu, so use water on it. Water
also works well on the Sandshrew.
Brock, the Gym Leader has a Lv .12 Geodude and a Lv. 14 Onix, 2 Rock-type
Pokémon. Water works very well on these. Be careful for the Onix's BIND
and BIDE. When it does BIDE, I suggest either beating it very quickly or do non-damaging
attacks like TAIL WHIP or GROWL, so you are debilitating him without
taking damage. If you defeat him, Brock will congraulate you and give you
BIDE, TM 34. I suggest giving it to a pokemon with high hit points,
and it is best used against pokemon with high defense and high offense,
because the damage done doesn't care about the enemy's defense at all.
You can look around the museum, but the $50 it costs is unreasonable,
since you can't get anything there except looking at fossils of
Aerodactyl and Kabutops, two extinct pokemon which you might get later.
This leads east from Pewter City to Mt.Moon. Get a Spearow if you want.
But it is very crucial for a collector to pick up a Jigglypuff, since this
is the only place you'll see it. There are also many trainers along the
way for money and experience. I suggest you to train the Pikachu and your
original Pokemon strongly.
You will meet two new kinds of trainers: Youngster and Lass. The former
likes pokemon such as Rattatas, the latter likes "cute" Pokémon like
Clefairies and Jigglypuffs.
Heal up at the Poke Center. A man will sell a Lv.5 Magikarp to you. It
seems weak but will evolve into the powerful Gyarados at Lv.20. See if it
is worth the $500 he wants. Don't worry if you don't get it, though, since
you can get it later by fishing for it.
Time to walk into the cave! You will meet two new kinds of trainers.Super Nerds who likes nerd stuff like
Voltorbs or Magnemites,
and Hikers with rock Pokémon like Geodude. There are also many pokemons
in the cave, Zubat and Geodude are more common than Paras and Clefairies.
After walking in, take a left and you'll get TM12, which contains
WATER GUN. Going up will yield a Potion and a Bug-catcher. Now, you can go
east futher into the cave with a few trainers loafing around. Going south
at the fork will let you take a Potion, a Rare Candy and an Escape Rope .
Under the first stairwell, there is a Rocket (gang members with a variety
of good Pokémon), along with a HP-UP that increases a Pokémon's HEALTH
permanently. Keep on going, past a Lass with a pair of Lv. 11 plant
Pokémon (Bellsprout/Oddish), and go into the second staircase.
Another Rocket is here, guarding TM01 (MEGA PUNCH). You will also find
an Ether hidden in a solitary rock. Going up, left, and finally to
a staircase guarded by a Hiker. Above him is the first piece of the Moon
Stone, so don't forget to get that. Enter the staircase and fight 3
Rockets in a row and finally a Super Nerd with a Grimer, a Voltorb, and
Here you can get one of two fossils. You can choose the Helix Fossil or
the Dome Fossil. The Helix Fossil will become Omanyte and the Dome Fossil
will become Kabuto when you take them to the Pokémon Laboratory on Cinnabar
Out already? After you cross the last ledge, you are stuck and can not
go back. So take the TM04 on the way first. Hop along the edges gradually
to the right until you get to a city.
Cerulean City (Cascadebadge)
The Gym here is owned by Misty, who has a Staryu and Starmie. Pikachu can
make short work of both of them if you trained it well. But watch out for Starmie's BUBBLEBEAM, a strong
that does a lot of damage and may reduce speed. Go ahead and beat her and
get the BUBBLEBEAM TM.
Go north and fight John again. He now has a Lv. 18 Pideotto, a Lv. 15
Abra, a Lv. 15 Rattata, and whatever he started with. On the way you will
fight 5 trainers in a row for a prize, only to find out that it was a plan
by TEAM ROCKET to recruit new members. You'll refuse the ROCKET's order
and fight him, getting a Nugget (useless object, sell it for $5000) if
you win. Go east here, through Route 25. You will get the S.S. Anne Ticket
from Bill after a few more trainers. Getting back in, Bill will share
information about Eevee and its evolutions.
You can trade a Poliwhirl for Jynx here. The Jynx can only be gotten this
way. Polywhirls evolve from Poliwags and will be very easy to get in the
A guy will tell you the badge's uses. Behind his house is a hidden rare
candy. It is located in the middle of the yard.
You can get Oddish and Abras here. (Route 24 and (Route 25) The Abra is unique to this city, so get
one. Authough I
usually get two because one could be traded away later for a Mr. Mime.
Abra only has the TELEPORT move, but when it evolves at Lv.16 to a Kadabra,
it will get more attacks. It is also a good "utility" Pokémon because
Teleport can run away from battles and return you to the last Poke Center.
After that, go to the house previously blocked by a policeman. Fight the
ROCKET and he will give you the TM 28. Onward south, there is a Pokémon Daycare Center. The man
there will care for one
Pokémon and raise its level while you are gone. At the end of the road, there is a big building which is
a gate house for Saffron City. At this point, the guard will not let you
through. The smaller building is the entrance of underground passage to
Vermilion City. You can trade a Nidoran (m) for a Nidoran (f) here.
The person at the underground passage speaks of hidden items.A Full Restore and a X special. Keep
your eye out for them!
Don't forget to get the exclusive Drowzee here. It is one of the first,
and one of the best psychic Pokémon. The only places to capture him
are by Cerulean, Vermillion, Celadon, or Lavender. His PAY DAY attack will
give you money in battle, equal to 2 times your level.
Vermilion City (Thunderbadge)
Here you can get the Bike Voucher by visiting the Pokémon Fan Club. It
will let you get the bike in Cerulean City for free. There is also an old man who will give you an
Old Rod, which could fish for Magikarps only. A third thing is that a boy
will trade a Far Fetch'd, a "sword-fighting" bird Pokemon for a Spearow.
This is the only place you can get one. After that, go to S.S. Anne
to the south.
You can get on the boat with the S.S. Ticket. On the boat, there are many
trainers and items. You'll find your first Great Ball here, in a trash can
of all places. John will be here with a different appearence. After you beat him you can talk to the captain.
He will give you HM 01
(cut) after you help him through his seasickness. Then boat will take
off when you exit. Don't forget to pick up BODY SLAM, a awesome fighting
move which can cause paralysis.
The HM is very important. It will now let you do things you couldn't do
before, like going back to Pallet Town, or getting Old Amber in the back
door to Pewter City's museum.
The Diglett's cave to the east has some high-level Digletts and Dugtrios.
If you get them they will help you a lot for the boss. Now, teach HM 01 to
a Plant-type Pokémon. The move is even good in battle sometimes!
Go to the southwest of the city, CUT a bush, and go to the Gym. The leader
there has a electric lock door. You have to find one switch, and another
switch which is always BESIDE it. Defeat Lt. Surge, the gym leader, who has
a Voltorb, a Pikachu and a Raichu. Digletts and Dugtrios can defeat them easily, as well as anyone you
gave your DIG technique to. Talk
to him afterwards to get TM 24, which contains THUNDERBOLT, a powerful
version of THUNDERSHOCK.
One of the Prof. Oaks' aids is also in a building to the east. He will
give you the Itemfinder if you have more than 30 Pokémon. This item finds
items. But not too important really. By him is a guy who will
trade a Nidorino for your Nidorina.
After this, go into the Diglett's cave again. It will lead you near
Pewter city and you can do things you couldn't do before. A person will
trade a Mr. Mime for an Abra. So if you have a spare one, trade it. (This
is the only way to get a Mr. Mime) You can also get HM 05 (flash) from one
of Prof. Oak's aides if you caught more than 10 Pokémon. Then go back and
up to Cerulean City. From there go east into the Rock Tunnel.
It is very dark inside, you need a Pokémon equipped with HM 05. Pick up
an Onix and a Machop here if you want. It is quite long and there
are quite a few Pokemaniacs and Miners in there. Luckily, a Poke Center
is right by the entrance to get you started up.
In the northeast section of the town there is a big building, Pokémon
Tower. But you can't do much there now. There is, however, a man who will
rename your Pokémon.
You'll hear a lot of stories. Mainly about a Cubone who lost his mother,
a kind Mr.Fuji's disappearence, and the ghosts in the Pokémon Tower.
To the south are many fishermen eager for battle. Let them have their
fun. This is a good chance to train electric and plant pokemons. That
includes Pikachu. One of the fisherman actually has 5 pokemons (all Magikarps).
Near the city, you will find Gowlithes, Ekans, and Mankeys. After
some collecting, go west through the tunnel to Celadon City. train a while
Celadon City (Rainbowbadge)
Celadon is the biggest city in the whole game. You can get an Eevee from a
back entrance to the Game Freak, Inc. building. You can buy stones from the
Mart to evolve him.
Fire Stone: Vulpix -> Ninetales
Eevee -> Flareon
Growlithe -> Arcanine
Leaf Stone: Weepinbell - Victreebell
Gloom - Vilepume
Exeggute - Exeggutor
Water Stone: Staryu - Starmie
Shelder - Cloyester
Poliwhirl - Poliwrath
Eevee - Vaporean
Thunder Stone: Pikachu - Raichu
Eevee - Jolteon
Andm although if you can't buy it, you can do all this with the Moon Stones:
Jigglypuff - Wigglytuff
Clefairy - Clefable
Nidorina - Nidoqueen
Nidorino - Nidoking
The Gym leader Erika uses plant Pokémon. Fire is useful here. After the battle, you will recieve a TM with
Give it to your favorite plant Pokémon. This useful move does a lot of
damage and gives half of it to your Pokémon as health.
Walk around for a bit. There are many interesting things in Celadon.
You can buy stones, items, TMs, and drinks. Give 3 kinds of drinks to
the girl on the last floor, since she will give you a TM for each drink.
Get an extra drink, you'll need it.
The TMs a man will sell -
TM32 DOUBLE TEAM $1000
TM33 REFLECT $1000
TM02 RAZOR WIND $2000
TM07 HORN DRILL $2000
TM37 EGG BOMB $2000
TM01 MEGA PUNCH $3000
TM05 MEGA KICK $3000
TM09 TAKE DOWN $3000

Play the slot machines here, but you need Coin Case and coins to play. The
Coin Case is in one of the other buildings. Some of the people playing will
give you coins. You can also buy coins, 50 of them for 1000. Some coins are
You can trade coins for Pokémon/TMs next door. A list of Pokémon that
could be bought there:
Abra - 180
Clefairy - 500
Nidorina (RED) - 1200
Scyther (RED) - 5500
Dratini - 2800
Porygon - 9999
Talk to the ROCKET by the picture to reveal a secret entrance - the ROCKET
hideout. Go down and fight some ROCKETS. Giovanni, the boss, has the Silph
After getting it, go back to Pokémon Tower and prepare for a long
journey. Channelers are hanging around possessed by ghost Pokémon. Fighting
Pokémon are useless here, because ghosts are immune to physical attacks.
There are a lot of ghosts around, but they can be identified with
the Silph Scope. Catch a Gastly and a Cubone here. There is a floor with healing tiles for you to heal up,
so you can build
good experience there. All the Pokémon are around levels 20 - 25.
Soon, you will fight Cubone's mother, a Lv.30 Marowak. You can't capture
her, but if you win, her soul will be freed. You step up to the last floor,
and realize that TEAM ROCKET is behind this. Beat them and you can now
go back to Celadon after rescuing Mr. Fuji and getting the Poke Flute
Go West from Celadon City. On this road, a Snorlax is sleeping, and you
must wake him up. If you have the Poke Flute, you can wake him up and fight
him. Cut down a nearby bush and go up and left. Go through the building and
into the house you find. The girl inside will give you HM 02 (Fly). When used in
battle, does some damage. And when used outside, you can go to any city visited by you at the city's
This leads to Fuschia City. This is a cycling road, so you will go down
automatically. There are a few Riders and Cueballs on the way also. The
former usually has nasty Pokémon and the latter with fighting Pokémon. It is quite a nice ride, if your
survive the poison.
When you see a gate house, a boy inside will trade a Lickitung for
a Slowbro. This is the only place you can get a Slowbro.
Around here, you can begin to catch Dittos. Use a Magikarp against it,
let it transform, then it will be easy to catch.
Fuschia City (Soulbadge)
You can see many trainers if you go to the shore, the meadow, or east of
the town. If you go east, and up, you will see a road leading to Lavender
Town. Another Snorlax is on this road, so if you couldn't get the first one
this is your only chance left to catch it. Go north, and you'll see a hut
where the person will give you the Super Rod. Even more north will let
you see that the city is connected to Lavender Town. Then go back to the
Go north to the Safari Zone. You will get many items and unique Pokémon
here. You can fish for Dratinis here, as opposed to the 2800 coins you need to pay for it in Celadon City.
Either way, I rather pay the $500 for entering the
Safari Zone, and I will still get more bang for the buck because I can
capture other rare Pokémon. If you find the secret house, you'll be
rewarded HM 03 (surf). If you give the Gold Teeth (also found in the safari zone) and
give it to the warden, he will give you HM 04 (strength). Both of these are
crucial to the game.
A list of Safari Zone Pokémon:
Nidoran(female) _______ Overall, a good chance to collect Nidorans.
Paras _______ The only other place for these is Mt. Moon.
Parasect So if you see one, get it.
Venomoth _______ You can get them later, but why not?
Tauros _______ The real "rare" Pokémon. You can only get them
Exeggute here. Chanseys are also available in the Unknown
Syther Dungeon, but that is a long time later.
If you think you're ready after you pick up a few more Pokémon.
go challenge the boss Koga. His men are psychic Jugglers (who can call
back Pokémon at will) and animal Tamers and he has Pokémon with skills of sleeping, paralyzing, and
poisoning. If you
beat him you'll get TOXIC, a strong poison attack that will do more
damage with each additional poison hit. Now is the time to go through the
gate to Saffron City. Remember, give a drink to one of the guards.
In a house by the pond, you will get the Good Rod. It is the second
most effective rod.
There are 2 Gyms in this city. In the gym on the left, you'll fight many
BLACKBELTS. Since they have fighting Pokémon, your best bet is to use
psychic Pokémon like Kadabra and Drowzee. Ghost Pokémon also works well
because they are immune to physical moves. The best blackbelt will use two pokemons against you, a
and a Hitmonlee.
After the final boss in the gym, he knows you are stronger and
you can get Hitmonlee, the kicker, or Hitmonchan, the puncher. The
other gym is blocked by a ROCKET though. You need to go to SILPH Company,
the biggest building in Saffron City, and defeat all Rocket Gang members
Silph Co. (Marshbadge)
There are many Items and Rocket Gang members in here. You need to warp
around quite often. If you get the Card Key, you can move more freely and
get to the boss. After beating John , a man will give you Lapras. At the 11th floor, fight Giovanni and if you
win, you will
get the Master Ball. It has a 100% chance of catching. Now you have a
choice at this point... either waste it on some arbitary Pokémon, or use
it on crucial one-time Pokémon including: The Legendary Birds, Snorlax,
and Mewtwo. The Birds are Lv.50 each and are very powerful in their own
element, the Snorlax are Lv. 30 and are quite good, while Mewtwo is tHE
perfect Pokémon and starts at Lv. 70.I think you just keep it ,dont use it and more I will tell later.
Back to the city. Now you can enter Sabrina's Gym and fight her for the
Marshbadge. There are Psychics and Channelers here, and you also need to
warp around often. Watch out for psychic Pokémon and use bug or ghost
Pokémon against them. She will give you PSYWAVE after the battle, a
A girl living in a house to the left will trade TM31 for a Poke Doll.
It contains MIMIC.
Power Plant (optional)
Cross the water by Cerulean City and SURF down and around to the Power
Plant. There are lots of Electric Pokémon here. You can get Pikachus,
Raichus, Voltorbs, Magnemites, and Electrabuzzes .(some Voltorbs are hidden as Poke Balls, they are Lv.
40 each! There is also an
Lv.41 Electrode hidden as a Poke Ball) Near the end is Zapdos, the
Legendary Electric Bird. Better try to catch it without MasterBall.
Seafoam Islands (optional)
Cross the water after you get to Fuschia City. Many Water Pokémon live
here, (Seels, Shellders, Krabbys, Psyducks, etc.) You'll need STRENGTH
and SURF. Articuno, the Legendary Ice Bird is found here only.
Krabby's are pretty good. About the level in which they become Kinglers,
they will learn the powerful 1-hit KO GILLOTINE move!
Cinnabar Island (Volcanobadge)
South of Pallet Town is Cinnabar Island. Enter the Pokémon Laboratory
and get some new Pokémon. Depending on what fossil you got in Mt. Moon,
you can get Kabuto or Omanyte. You can also get Aerodactyl if you picked
up the Old Amber in Pewter City's museum. Three people there will trade
your Raichu for an Electrode, your Venonat for a Tangela, or your Ponyta
for a Seel.
There is a Pokémon Mansion here with puzzles involving switches. Behind a
pillar on the first level is the final piece of the Moon Stone. Read
the text to find out about the mysterious Mewtwo Pokémon. Here you can get
Grimer, Muk, Koffing, Ponyta, Magmar, etc. You will also get a key for the gym. The gym leader, a mad
scientist named Blaine,
uses fire Pokémon. Water works very well on them. If you win he will give
you a very powerful fire attack (FIRE BLAST), and the seventh badge. Now
you only have one more Gym left.
Viridian City (Earthbadge)
Here is the final Gym... (the Gym was locked before) The boss is non other
than... Giovanni! He wants to use this place to get more ROCKET members.
After beating him, go west to the Pokémon League HQ. Gary will
be on the road again, challenging you for the final time.
Pokémon League HQ
Very large building. You can get Dittos, Rhyhorns, and some other good
Pokémon here. You also need all 8 badges so the guards will let you pass.
Have a pokemon with surf ability as it is needed in here.
To pass here you will need the move STRENGTH, all the
skills, and best Pokémon you have. There are TOUGH Pokémon here (Lv. 40
Marowaks, Lv. 40 Venonats etc.) and very skilled trainers. This is where
you will also find Moltres, the Legendary Fire Bird. There are a lot of
puzzles, and by the end you will probably be very worn-out.
This is a Poké Center and a Poké Mart. Get all the things you need, pick
your best 6 Pokémon, and go though the door at the top to fight the Elite
Four, a group of the most powerful trainers ever. All their Pokémon are
between lv. 50-65, so be prepared for some good fights.
Personally, my best team against this (all well-trained, of course) are
Blastoise, Exeggutor, Zapdos, Dugtrio, Nidoking, Dodrio.
The first, Lorelei has a group of ice Pokémon. She starts with a Lv. 54
Dewgong, secondly a Lv. 53 Cloyester, then a Lv. 54 Slowbro. A Jynx
(Lv. 56) follows the battle, and finishes off with a Lv. 56 Lapras.Better use Zapdos if you have.
The second man Bruno has rock/fighting Pokémon. To be exact, he starts
off with a Lv. 53 Onix. After that, he switches off to fighting and gets
out a Lv. 55 Hitmonchan and then a Lv. 55 Hitmonlee. After the fighting duo,
he gets a Lv. 56 Onix and finally his ace card, the Lv. 58 Machamp. Bring
a water and a psychic/ghost Pokémon for this. (I suggest a Blastoise for
rocks and Dugtrio for the others).
The third lady Agatha has mind-controllers at her control. Kicking off
with a Lv. 56 Gengar. Then, a Lv. 56 Golbat will try to CONFUSE you into
submission. A lighter challenge (Lv. 55 Haunter) comes in afterwards.
But a Lv. 58 Arbok comes out next, followed by a Lv. 60 Gengar. Remember,she is one of the only
trainers who can call back Pokémon at will. Better use Dugtrio against her.
The forth man Lance has awesome Dragons to fight you. He said he trained
for a long time, no wonder he starts off with a Lv. 58 Gyarados. A pair of
Lv. 56 Dragonairs follows the fight. A Lv. 60 Aerodatcytl next .Finally, he brings out his long-trained and
to-get Lv. 62 Dragonite. Try using Blastoise or Nidoking.
After 4 long, hard battles, you will realize that another had already
defeated the Elite Four! Who is it?It is John! After he tells you of
his ambition, you fight his 6 strong Pokémon with what is left of your
six. He starts with a Lv. 61 Pidgeot. Then he calls an Lv. 59 Alakazam, followed by a Rhydon. He finishes
off with Pokémon of fire, water, and plant types
with them being Lv. 61, Lv. 63, and the last being Lv. 65 (his first pick
in the game). His plant choice is Exeggutor, his Fire Choice is Arcanine, and his water choice is Gyarados.
THE END !But the game continues and now you are in the Pallet Town again after seeing all those stupid
After you have beaten the Pokémon League, go back to Cerulean City.
northwest of Cerulean City in a cave is Mewtwo, the best Pokémon there is
(# 150). He is at lv. 70 and is at the end of a long way in the cave.
There are Lv. 50s Pokémon from everywhere (Venomoths, Chanseys, Kadabras, Raichus, Magnitons,
Marowaks, Hypnos, etc.). It is possible to catch
Mewtwo without the Master Ball, but it is hard. He is no pushover and will
do a lot of damage against you. He has Swift, Psychic, Recover,
and Barrier at his command.
The Quest Goes On.....
There is always the quest of catching all 150 Pokémon. If you manage
to do this, go to Celadon City for a nice surprise. Remember, you need to
trade a lot to achieve this goal.

65 Alakazam becomes (64&67) at level 16 and 28 respectively, they

80 Slowbro COMMON to catch. Slowpokes evolve at level 37.
