   Well, you've stumbled upon my first walkthrough. The Pokemon Gold/Silver
walkthrough. Can't be prouder...heh, just kidding. For some reason, everyone
says they hate Pokemon. And for some reason, when I look at the sell marks,
Pokemon makes the top numbers on the list. Kind of funny. I'll definitely go
through with you once again once Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire comes out, so be sure to
check that walkthrough later. Now, time to start the real thing.

III.MENUS AND EXPLANATIONS
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=
   Menus are a good way of organization. Sometimes, however, they can be a bit
confusing so I made this section to explain each main one.

---Starting Menu
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
New Game      |
Option          |
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ |

1.New Game-As the name implies, this starts a new game. Not much to say except
that if you save your new game, you will delete your old one.

2.Option-This will bring you to the options screen. Here you can set the Text
Speed, Battle Scene, Battle Style, Frame Type and a lot more stuff. Just set the
text speed to Fast.

---Main Menu
This is the menu that you get by Pressing Start while playing the game.
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
|PokeDEX            |
|PokeMON             |
|Pack                |
|PokeGEAR            |
|[Your Name]         |
|Save                |
|Option              |
|Exit                |
|                    |
|_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | 

1.PokeDEX-As the name suggests, this is the famous Pokedex. It's a bit different
from the old one but basically the same. It got some nice new features like
Pokemon search that you could do by pressing the Start button and choosing the
Pokemon types. It pretty useful at times. Like before, it shows info on the
Pokemon you've seen or caught.

2.PokeMON-This shows all the Pokemon that you have with you, their level, their
HP, and a little icon in the corner of their type icon indicates whether or not
the Pokemon is carrying something.

3.Pack-Unlike the Red/Blue version packs, this pack got a new feature called
pockets. The pack is split into 4 of them. They are the Item Pocket, the TM
pocket, the Key Item Pocket, and the Ball Pocket. The item pocket carries
normal, disposable items that use can use, throw away, or attach to your
Pokemon. The TM pocket carries TMs and HMs to teach Pokemon new moves. The key
item pocket carries all the indesposable, helpful stuff such as a Bicycle or an
Itemfinder. And the ball pocket carries Pokeballs to catch Pokemon with.

4.PokeGEAR-This is a very useful new feature from Gold/Silver. At the beginning
it only shows what day of the week it is, time, and a new accessory, the phone
which allows you to call and get called by other trainers. It's useless at the
beginning because it only got your Mom's number. As you progress in the game,
you will gain a map and a radio card for your Pokegear.

5.[Your Name]-Obviously, your name goes here. If you enter it, you will see how
much money you have and how many badges you have. You will also see how much
time you've played and your ID number. Not much to do here.

6.Save-This is obviously lets you save. Uh...nothing else to add.

7.Option-This is the same thing as the start menu option.

8.Exit-Cancel the Main Menu.

IV.General Tips
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=

-+-Try to save every ten minutes or before a major battle. You never know if
you're going to win or capture a rare Pokemon, so saving can often help.

-+-If your Pokemon goes below half HP, it's a good idea to use restorative
items, such as Max Potion, MooMoo Milk, or even potions at lower levels to keep
your HP up. Keep in mind that if you "white out"(die), you will lose half of
your money and your Pokemon will not like you anymore.

-+-Using the most powerful moves isn't always the best way to go. Using Sacred
Fire against a Magcargo is not a smart idea. However, using an attack as weak as
a Water Gun, you can probably knock it out in one hit, as Magcargo is Fire/Rock
I believe.

-+-Keep your Power Points or PPs up. If you run out of moves, you're toast. Most
of the time, the stronger the move, the less PPs it has, so I recommend for you
to sometimes use weaker moves first before unloading with Fire Blasts and Sacred
Fires.

-+-Not only can you heal outside of battle, you can heal inside also. If the
situation looks really tough and your Pokemon is getting beat, either use
restorative items to heal or switch Pokemon.

-+-Equiping your Pokemon with items can help you win a hard battle. Giving
Charcoal to a Typhlosion may just be what you need to win a battle.

-+-Don't make all-out-attack Pokemon. Use a lot of support moves and combos such
as Rain Dance and Thunder, or a simple Sunny Day and Solarbeam. For a whole
list, check out the Combos Section.

-+-Always save before a Gym Leader. Sometimes you may mess up and wind up
losing.

-+-In case you're wondering, there is no fastest way to train a Pokemon. Of
course, there is Gameshark, but I wouldn't recommend that as it's probably going
to erase your game. If you care about stats and not just raising Pokemon for the
Pokedex, don't use the switching Pokemon thing, because you will get lower stats
that way. Just train in an area where you got a few levels advantage or on
Pokemon that you have a type advantage over.

-+-In the Pokedex, I've included all the maximum stats. If you get a shiny
Pokemon you might think that it can get maximum stats faster, but that is not
true. Instead, shiny Pokemon CANNOT achieve maximum stats, therefore rendering
themselves totally useless.

-+-And last, but definitely not least, use strategy when you battle. Try to get
a type advantage and use STAB(Same Type Attack Bonus). That could win you a hard
fight.

-+-Keep in mind that some moves always go first. They are Quick Attack, Mach
Punch, and Extremespeed. Be careful or else you might get attacked when you
don't expect it and get KO'ed.

-+-If the Pokemon show up in different order than the walkthrough specifies,
please don't get confused or anything. In Gold/Silver the next Pokemon is
totally random so don't blame me.

-+-Some Pokemon appear only at certain times. This is the fancy minigraph for
it.

1.New Bark Town
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=

Items-
PokeGEAR
Potion


Pokemon-
Chikorita OR
Totodile  OR
Cyndaquil

   As you start the game, you will be greeted by the starting menu. Go to the
options menu and select Fast from the text speed and cancel. Now click the New
game option.
   At first, you will be greeted by a black screen. A voice will ask you to set
the time. Depending on what time you set, the voice says something different
such as "I overslept!" and such. The color will come to the screen and you will
see that the voice if really Prof. Oak. He will give his normal speech and
notice that instead of a Pikachu, a picture of Marill, it's popularity rival,
will show up. After a little bit of Prof. Oak talking, you will get to set your
name. For the sake of the guide, I'll use Gold. Then you will be shrunk and sent
to your new room.
   Take time clicking everything and checking out the computer. Although it does
not have a Potion in it like the previous versions, it's still worth looking
around.
   Next to the computer is a radio. Click it to hear Prof. Oak's Pokemon Talk.
It changes the music in your room until you leave.
   However, before you leave check out the map by the stairs. It's the new Johto
world. Quite different from the Red/Blue versions eh?
   OK, time to go downstairs. You will be greeted by your mom and she will tell
you that the new professor, Prof. Elm, is looking for you. After that, she hands
you your Pokegear and explains how to use the phone part of it. If you take a
look at the Main Menu, you will notice that you're missing the Pokedex option
and the Pokemon option. You will get them a bit later.
   Go outside. New Bark is not all that much different from the towns in
Red/Blue versions of the game, but it's still nice. Walk around, talk to the
people outside and inside houses to find out that Prof. Elm is a pretty
respected guy. The girl in the bottom-left corner of the town says that Prof.
Elm discovered pre-evolutions (covered later) of some Pokemon.
   Now go to Elm's lab. Since it's the biggest building in New Bark, it
shouldn't be hard to spot. It's right next to your house. Go inside and talk to
Prof.Elm. He will tell you about Mr.Pokemon and his discoveries and ask you to
go get his newest discovery. Since he can't come with you, he offers you 1 of 3
Pokemon. They are:

1.Chikorita-It's the Pokemon on the right side of the table. It's pretty rare to
meet a Pokemon that's pure grass type without half poison, but this is one of
them. It gives you a chance against psychic Pokemon, which are strong against
poison types. Aside from that, Chikorita learns a strong damaging attack at
level 8 I believe, which is Razor Leaf. But choose Chikorita only if you think
you can handle it because Chikorita will get wiped in the first 2 gyms. Other
than that, it's a decent Pokemon, but definitely not the best. That honor
belongs to Cyndaquil, in my opinion.

2.Totodile- Very strong in the beginning with its Scratch attack, which is
generally better then Tackle. One problem with it is its Special Attack points
are not exactly the highest. It's still pretty good, but it's not the best.
Water attacks will be slightly weaker because of this.

3.Cyndaquil-Well, this is my favorite of the 3. With its high Special Attack
points, it will be extremely powerful with its fire attacks. His physical Attack
stack is not that high, but it's decent to provide serious offence until you get
fire attacks. Most gyms are also weak to this type. The only drawback I see in
him is that he learns his first fire attack at level 12, but hey, you gotta make
sacrifices to get that kinda strength.

Personally I'll recommend Cyndaquil, but it'll your choice. Only choose
Chikorita if you are really advanced and think that you can take the first 2
gyms on without too many problems.

   After you choose your Pokemon, Elm will give you his phone number. When you
try to get out of the laboratory, the Prof.Elm's aide will give you a Potion. It
may yet be very helpful.
   If you noticed, your chosen Pokemon is carrying an item. It's a berry, so
when your HP goes to yellow, this item will recover 10 HPs. It may seem like a
lot now, but when you start training and getting levels, it won't seem like a
lot. However for now, be content with it.
   Leave the lab and head west through the path. You are now on Route 29.

*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=
2.ROUTE 29
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=

Items-
Potion
Berry

Pokemon-

Gold-                           Silver-
Sentret   (Morning, Day)        Sentret   (Morning, Day)
Pidgey    (Morning, Day)        Pidgey    (Morning, Day)
Rattata   (Morning, Day, Night) Rattata   (Morning, Day, Night)
Hoothoot  (Night)               Hoothoot  (Night)

   Whatever your starter is, build it to level 7 or 8. It will help you a lot
soon. If you run low on HPs, you can always run to Elm's lab and get a heal from
the machine to his left.
   By the time you're 7-8, you should have no problems with low HP and weak
attacks. So to get the potion, find the man next to New Bark. He's in the grass.
Go down and left a bit until there is a way to go up. Go up till you can't
anymore, then go a few steps to the right and up again. Walk until you hit a
dead end and turn right. There should be a Pokeball lying on the ground. Pick it
up. It's a Potion.
   OK, backtrack to the man in the grass. Get a heal if you need from Elm's lab
and walk west. In a minute or so of walking and fighting, you should see a man
with a little tree thing behind him surrounded loosely by ledges. Walk in there
and click the tree. You will find a Berry. There is no need for you to equip it
since you are so near the Cherrygrove Pokemon Center.
   Jump over the ledge and you will see a white path leading west. Go that way
and you will enter Cherrygrove City.

3.CHERRYGROVE CITY
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=

Items-
Map Card

Pokemon-
None

PokeMART Prices-
Pokeball   -200(After you go to New Bark and talk to Prof. Elm)
Potion     -300
Antidote   -100
Parlyz Heal-200
Awakening  -250

   Talk to the man who stands by the entrance and say YES when he offers to give
you a tour. After he's done, he will give a MAP CARD for your Pokegear. Now you
can view the Johto map from anywhere in the world.
   If you need to heal, visit the Pokemon Center. Also, visit the Pokemart to
buy an Antidote or 2. They don't sell Pokeballs here until after you talk to
Mr.Pokemon and go back to Elm.
   Not much to do here but walk around and talk to people. When you're done, go
up to Route 30!

*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=
4.ROUTE 30
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=

Items-
Berry 2x
Psncureberry
PokeDEX
Mystery Egg

Pokemon-

Gold                            Silver
Caterpie  (Morning, Day)        Ledyba   (Morning)
Metapod   (Morning, Day)        Weedle   (Morning, Day)
Pidgey    (Morning, Day)        Kakuna   (Morning, Day)
Hoothoot  (Night)               Pidgey   (Morning, Day)
Rattata   (Night)               Hoothoot (Night)
Spinarak  (Night)               Rattata  (Night)

   As you walk up, you will see a little house with a tree at the side. Pick a
Berry off the tree and go inside the house. Talk to the man sitting at the table
to get another Berry. Now get out of the house and keep going up. You will meet
a crossroads. To the left, 2 trainers are battling, so you are unable to go
through. Choose the right way and you'll see a sign that says Mr.Pokemon's house
is that way. Keep walking up through the grass and take the opportunity to get
another level or 2. By the time you reach Mr.Pokemon's level, try to keep you
starter at least at level 9, preferably 10. There won't be any need to use your
items to heal because when you go to Mr.Pokemon he'll give you a heal. So go
inside the house and Mr.Pokemon will give you the Mystery Egg to bring back to
Prof. Elm. Then, Prof.Oak comes from the computer and gives you your Pokedex. He
then leaves to another city called Goldenrod. Before you leave, Mr.Pokemon will
heal you.
   When you leave the house, Prof. Elm will call you and tell you to come to his
lab right away. Before you hurry away though, pick the tree next to Mr.Pokemon's
house for a Psncureberry. OK, now backtrack back to Cherrygrove and get a heal
if you need. As you try to go east out of Cherrygrove, your new rival shows up
and requests a Pokemon battle.

-------------------------BATTLE-------------------------

NAME: ???
POKEMON:One of the starting Pokemon who has an advantage against yours. It's at
level 5.
PRIZE:  $300
SPECIAL:None
   Nothing to this fight. You probably don't have any special attacks unless
you're using Chikorita, so pound him with Tackles or Scratches, depending on
your Pokemon. If you are using Chikorita, don't use Razor Leaf as Cyndaquil if
resistant to it. After you beat him, he runs off.
---------------------------------------------------------------

   Now continue back to New Bark town. If you like, jump ledges to avoid any
fights.

5.BACK TO NEW BARK
*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=
Items-
Pokeball x5

Pokemon-
None                  

   When you're back in New Bark, go to the lab and a police officer will ask you
about the rival dude. Set his name to Rival for the sake of the guide. The
police officer rushes away. Now talk to Elm and give him the egg. He will be all
astounded by it and he'll take it for a bit. Nothing else to do now but leave,
but before you do, the aide gives you 5 Pokeballs.
   When you leave New Bark, the guy in the grass will come up and teach you how
to catch Pokemon. With your 5 Pokeballs, go catch some of the Route 29 Pokemon.

Pokemon-

Gold-                          Silver-
Geodude   (Day)
Spearow   (Day)
Rattata   (Day)


   This is really Route 46. Yeah, I know it sounds too far away but its not
really. Halfway to Cherrygrove, there is a little building above you. Go into it
and go out the other exit. The only important Pokemon here are Geodude and
Spearow. Catch them both as they will both be a tremendous aid in Violet City,
which is the city with the first badge. Train both of them to the level of your
starter, which should be about 10 by now. Spare the time to get Geodude up to
level 11 though, because it's Rock Throw will be very helpful up ahead. By the
way, when you pass through Cherrygrove, stock up on some Pokeballs.

Spinarak  (Night)               Rattata  (Night)
Bellsprout(Morning, Day, Night) Bellsprout(Morning, Day, Night)

   To get here, instead of taking the right crossroads, take the left one. Catch
a Caterpie and train it up to a Butterfree. It shouldn't take mroe than an hour
or so. The people who were battling before stopped and cleared the way. However,
to get through, you have to battle them.

-------------------------BATTLE-------------------------

NAME: Youngster Joey
POKEMON:
Level 4 Rattata-48 EXP
PRIZE:  $64
SPECIAL:Phone Number
   Use your starter to kill this guy in 1 or 2 hits. Easy expirience. To get his
phone number, talk to him after you beat him.
---------------------------------------------------------------

   When you go between the ledge and the forest, another trainer challenges you
to a match.

-------------------------BATTLE-------------------------

NAME: Youngster Mikey
POKEMON:
Level 2 Pidgey -22 EXP
Level 4 Rattata-48 EXP
PRIZE:  $64
SPECIAL:None
   Once again, pound him with your starter. Nothin to it.
---------------------------------------------------------------

   Once you're finished with these losers, keep going up and into the grass.
You'll see another trainer turning around ahead. make him notice you and start a
battle with him.

-------------------------BATTLE-------------------------

NAME: Bug Catcher Don
POKEMON:
Level 3 Caterpie -33 EXP
Level 3 Caterpie -33 EXP
PRIZE:  $48
SPECIAL:None
   If you have a level 11 Geodude, use it's Rock Throw. It'll be over before it
even begins.
---------------------------------------------------------------

   After these fights, make sure that you got a well-balanced team. Have your
Geodude, your appropriate bug pokemon (Either Spinarak or Ledyba, depending on
your version),Spearow, and your started at level 11. Go north-east to get out of
the little forest and you'll see a cave. If you like, you can go inside, but
there is no point right now unless you want a Zubat. Instead, go back in the
grass and catch yourself 2 Bellsprouts. You'll need 1 for an ingame trade.
   When you caught them, go next to the cave and pick up the Antidote. Head west
for another wierd tree and pick a Bitter Berry off it. Look at the Berry Guide
to see what it does or just read the description in the game. Remember the guy
next to the tree as you might want to come back here later for an item.
   From the guy go south a bit and pick up a Pokeball. Then, battle the trainer.

   Yeah! Your first badge...cool. Now go outside the gym and you will receive a
phone call from Prof.Elm. He'll tell you to go to the Pokemon Center and find
his aide.
   Go there and deposit 1 Pokemon into the computer. Next, talk to the aide to
receive an Egg. Insead of being in the Pack, it's now one of the Pokemon. You
have to walk around a lot until that damn thing hatches. Now take 1 of your
Bellsprouts and go south-west of the Pokemon Center and trade it for an Onix.
This is a good way to get a low-level Pokemon. However, once it hits level 10,
you can't exactly control it until you get a few badges. At this point, your
team should look like this:
Starter             -Level 13
Spearow             -Level 13
Geodude             -Level 13
(Ledyba or Spinarak)-Level 10
Gastly              -Level 7
Egg

If it's not, train up a bit. If it's more, that's good. Keep your Pokemon at a
level that they don't kill wild Pokemon in 1 hit. If you're going Pokemon
hunting, use Gastly to make them go to sleep and use your Bug or something else
to wipe them within an inch of life. Go south of the Pokemon Center to pick up a
Przcureberry and go back up. Now that we're done with Violet City, let's go west

increases grass-type Pokemon attack strength. If you have Chikorita or
Bellsprout with you, equip it to them. If you don't save it till later.
   Keep walking down into the grass. Put you Gastly forward and walk around.
Don't fight the trainer just yet. If you have time, don't forget to catch Zubat
and Wooper at night. Wooper's evolution later on will be very useful. Here,
catch a Mareep and a Hoppip using Gastly's Hypnosis and go put Mareep in your
team. This is practically the only good electric Pokemon you get until you go
back to Kanto, the old world. Train up the Mareep till about Level 10 or so. It
shouldn't be too difficult and then battle the trainer.

the same day. People seem to think that they have to get one or the other.) Now
go back tot he Pokemon Center and heal. Talk to the Fisher inside to receive an
Old Rod. Now go back t the bridge and catch a Tentacool and a pathetic Magikarp.
If you are LUCKY, like 1/150 lucky, you will catch a Qwilfish. There is an
easier way to get one of these, and that's by getting Fisher Ralph's number.
He'll call you when there are a lot of Qwilfish in the area.

If you somehow have the money, DON'T BUY IT! You will get one for free a bit

   Don't be in such a hurry to get to the Gym. The door is closed by another one
of those weird black-dressed folks. Instead, go directly above the Gym to the

from the tree. If you need to know what it does, check out the Apricorn Guide.
Now, walk into the house. Talk to the old man there, and he'll say something
about TEAM ROCKET getting Slowpoketails. So that's who the black dudes were.
   Head back to the entrance of the well. Go down into it and Kurt wil be on the

   Don't go down and battle Bugsy yet. Instead go left a bit and battle the
trainer in the corner.

-------------------------BATTLE-------------------------

NAME: Bug Catcher Josh
POKEMON:
Level 13 Paras -195 EXP
PRIZE:  $208
SPECIAL:None
   Use Quilava's Ember or Pidgey's Gust. If you like, use Spearow.
--------------------------------------------------------------

   Now go back and go down around the tree to battle the Gym Leader, Bugsy.

-------------------------BATTLE-------------------------

NAME: Gym Leader Bugsy
POKEMON:
Level 14 Metapod  -216 EXP
Level 14 Kakuna   -213 EXP
Level 16 Scyther  -640 EXP
PRIZE:  $1600
SPECIAL:Hivebadge, TM 49(Fury Cutter)
   In here use Quilava's Ember. The Scyther is no trouble at all if you follow
the walkthrough and only use Quilava, otherwise it's Fure Cutter will get very
powerful in a few turns and wipe out practically anything. If you manage to lose
with Quilava, go to a support group or something, because that's really
pathetic. No offence ;).
--------------------------------------------------------------

   Save the TM for now. When you get your own Scyther, teach it to him. Now get
out of the gym and visit the Pokemon Center for a heal. You're going to need it.
   Now time to go through the Ilex Forest. When you try to get out of Azalea at
the west exit, your rival will come out and start a battle with you.

-------------------------BATTLE-------------------------

NAME: Rival
POKEMON:
Level 12 Gastly   -243 EXP
Level 14 Zubat    -162 EXP
Level 16 starter  -489 EXP
PRIZE:  $960
SPECIAL:None
   This battle is easy if your Mareep evolved at Level 15 into Flaafy. This is
what you do: Open the fight with a level 13+ Gastly and use Hypnosis. Then
switch to Flaafy and Thundershock to death. If he has Croconaw, use Flaafy. If
he got Quilava, use the Wooper you got before the Union Cave. If it's Bayleef,
make short work of it with a Pidgey or Spearow. Then just Thundershock the Zubat
easily.
--------------------------------------------------------------

   Go get a heal from the Pokemon Center if you need and now go through the
little house into the Ilex Forest.

   Enter this forest and immediately catch a Paras and an Oddish. By now, your
Pokemon Box might be full and Bill will call you to switch it. Do just that.
When you come back continue up and talk to the kid. He's the apprentice of the
charcoal Maker from Azalea Town. It seems he lost the Farfetch'd that CUTs trees
and now he can't go get it. So guess what you got to do?
   Go around the trees and down. Follow the path until you spot the bird. Scare
the bird a few times in the general direction of the kid. When you get there
after it, the Charcoal Maker will be there. Talk to him to receive your first
HM, CUT. Teach it to whoever learns it right now. Now quickly go back to Azalea
and go to the house in the south-eastern corner of town and talk to the
apprentice. He'll give you the very useful Charcoal. Give that to Quilava to
make his Fire type moves even stronger.
   Head back to the forest and go around the trees. Walk around that side of the
forest to find a Revive. It may be useful in a tight spot. Go back tot he spot
where the kid used to stand and go up. Now that you got Cut, you can chop down
these pesky bushes. So, chop it and go left and up. Read the sign and go around
the trees into the dead-end. Check the square right before the dead-end to
receive a Full Heal. Look out for items hidden like this in this forest. Get out
of the dead-end and head east some more. You see the other dead-end? Check the
same square and you'll get Super Potion. Did you see the kid standing? go around
the big circle of trees and talk to him to receive TM 02(Headbutt). Now go back
up and through the opening in the ledge. Go right into the little dead-end and
in the last square pick up an Ether. Go right all the way and train up your
Flaaffy to around level 20. it will help a lot later on. When you're done, go
into the building onto Route 34!
