Pokémon Silver Tips

Tips for Silver/Gold
Trainer Red
In Silver Cave, you should find Trainer Red. He has pokemon lvl 78 & higher so you should get your toughest pokemon ready. He's in a small cave (it's sorta hard to see) in the highest upper right hand corner of Silver Cave. Here are his pokemon:

Pikachu lvl 78 (thundershock, thunder, thunder wave, swift?)
Snorlax lvl 81? (rest, snore, body slam, amnesia)
Charizard ? (fire spin, ?, ?, ?)
Blastoise ? (surf, ? ? ?)
Venasaur ? (solar beam, razor leaf, ?, ?)

Pikachu - DO NOT USE HO-OH!! Bird type pokemon are weak against electric moves. FLY is good, but even if your pkmn is up in the air, pikachu can still use THUNDER and injure it. Use Ho-Oh only if it is at a very high level (and I don't mean 70). You should use rock-type moves against pikachu. Fighting is also sometimes good. Ice also reccomended.
Snorlax - Ughh....this guy is very annoying. You will find that when you get him down to very little HP, he'll use rest, or Trainer Blue will use full restore. Fighting types are definitely reccomended. Don't put Snorlax to sleep either; he has a move called SNORE that will attack while sleeping. It's best if you make him faint all in one move.
Charizard - Water types, obviously. The most effective moves will probably be SURF or HYDRO PUMP. Feraligatr is a good bet 8p
Blastoise - Grass types like Venasaur are good bets. I made Blastoise faint by making my Ho-Oh use FLY, but don't use my way because I'm crazy. 5ysegkfdjgoxd. I should've used my Meganium.
Venasaur - Venasaur is the toughest of all Trainer Blue's pokemon; not unless you use Typhlosion. That was how I defeated him; a good whip of FLAME WHEEL and he was gone. But be careful - Venasaur's SOLAR BEAM is wicked! Fire type moves recommended. Strongly.

When you beat Trainer Blue, the credits will show up. You don't get any prize or item for beating Blue. (Not that I know of)

Getting a Pichu
Breed Ditto with Pikachu and you'll get a pichu!

Catching Noctowl
This might not work, but it's worth a try.
Go to KANTO in Viridian City in that little patch of grass where you find pickachu. (It should be under six o clock at the time) Search around in the grass and when the sky turns darker (in other words, when it's six o clock) a Noctowl should appear about lvl 7. This doesn't always work, though.
