                   Delayed release, supposed to be released on the
                   18/4/2010. Many external factors and Homework delayed

                 - Addition of more guides in both SideGuides and

________________________________________________________________________



Sorry for the delayed release guys, got a flooded load of holiday homework
lol. (Damn you Year 12!) Took a bit to update this, so I crammed as much
as I could into here. So enjoy the guide fellow Aussie and Overseas Pokemon
Gamers. Version 1.5 was a yuk version of the guide and I didn't get to
proofread it in time, however, I make an apology for that.

On the 25/4/2010 was an exciting day for all Pokemon players in Australia,
it was the time when HeartGold and SoulSilver came out. Unfortunately
I only purchased SS. I may purchase HG in the future. As for the late
release, I have taken extra time to add in more content before the Final
revision (Version: Kotone).

My time has beeeeeeen way too shortened by homework. I can only have time
to update on GameFAQs and Neoseeker. Any other FAQ providers other than
those two must get a newer version of this guide (if released) on either
of the two sites, then they must update the FAQ themselves.

I appreciate some useful emails, but somewhat some emails have been acting
like "waterfalls full of dudness" which don't help me in improving my guide.
Final year of School is like being bombarded like crazy - SAC after SAC.
Constructive criticism only helps. So please take note of that.

If you guys have liked this guide or found it helpful in enhancing your
gameplay of Pokemon HeartGold/Soulsilver, please click on the "Click here"
from the "Liked this FAQ? CLICK HERE to recommend this item to other users".
It would be greatly appreciated. Tell this guide too your friends if they
need some extra help in Pokemon HG/SS.

And on one additional note, I must bag the person who referenced my guide
on ChaCha. The reason is that I have not even mentioned Haunter using Psychic
-type moves in SS, although they can and they are weak against that move
type, but I am not very happy when someone referenced it when I didn't
mentioned that.

NB: PAL region includes regions who are members of the Commonwealth.
    These include England (UK), Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

SCHEDULED UPCOMING RELEASES:

[Version Kotone/Final of Pokemon SS Walkthrough]

February 28, 2011: FINAL RELEASE SOON TO COME

Note: Final Revision of this Walkthrough

________________________________________________________________________

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
/                            INTRODUCTION                              /
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello and greetings to fellow Pokemon SoulSilver Walkthrough readers
and gamers.

Version Kotone-Au (Aussie) of the Pokemon SS Walkthrough + FAQ (now) has
finally been released! This guide will (hopefully) hope you in every
way as possible to benefit you and me for this game - to have a good
experience from it. I have updated it from the beginning to the end
of the gameplay to meet the standards.

This guide is written from a POKEMON SOULSILVER PERSPECTIVE, but of course
you can use this for Pokemon HeartGold. Some minor edits of the Japanese
Version vs. the Australian version may be noticeable, and they are mentioned
 in this guide.

A Note on the Trainer Tables, I have re-arranged the Pokemon that appear
in battles in ORDER OF LEVEL NOW.

Sooner or later, I will update Kotone-Au of this guide maybe later this
year, but likely next year, depending on how much time I have available
(because of exams and rubbish). And thanks to the voluntary contributors
for helping me fix up some minor hiccups in this guide.

Hopefully, everything is going well for you all and life is treating
you fellow Pokemon gamers in a positive way.

Enjoy and have fun playing,

- shinno

|ESSENTIAL INFORMATION TO UNDERSTANDING THIS GUIDE||     [ESSENT]    ||
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay. I do guides a little different to how others write it, but this
is my first time writing a guide too. By the way, this guide is written
in AUSTRALIAN ENGLISH. So keep that in mind. Here's the features:

 ------------------
/ 1. REFERENCES   /
------------------

In order to get to where you are up to, refer to the table of Contents
and look through the section to find where you are. For example, if you
are up to the Ice Path, break out the Find (Ctrl+F) and type in [SSWTIP]
(stands for Soulsilver [SS] Walkthrough [WT] Ice Path [IP]). And there
you go to your reference and read on from the section you have chosen.

As for the Kanto section, they are in [SSKTXX] - noting that it is still
a part of the HG/SS standard storyline, but in the Kanto region. [XX]
are variable numbers in the walkthrough for each section.

Please include the Square/Matrix brackets when you find your desired
section of the Walkthrough.

 ----------------------------------------
STARTING POKEMON: Dratini.

Comment: Ice Fang away for Dratini, use an Electric type for Seadra.

EXPLANATION:

Here's a typical example of Trainer Info I've picked out from one of
the trainers inside Blackthorn Gym. The "CHALLENGER NO." represents the
count of trainers in the area (for instance, he's the first trainer to
encounter). Reward money with a star means that your opponent coughs
out the original amount, and an extra amount is sent to your mum.
Money being sent to your mum is more like an insurance fund for you.

That way is highly recommended in my opinion, but the money with the
brackets represents the original amount (has been discontinued this
part of the Trainer info).

Comment from me (normally advice on how to beat the trainer's Pokemon),
and the Pokemon the trainer has is straight forward.

A new addition in Kotone-Au/ is that I have included the "starting Pokemon"
for Gym Leaders and certain trainers, since I have re-ordered the Pokemon
according to their levels now.

NB: The Pokemon that are on the list do not appear in order as they
seem so take note of that. The Pokemon listed for each trainer is what
you should be expecting to battle.

 --------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's an example of a double or dual battle. Note that it is the same,
BUT experience points given in a double battle will be split in half
towards your two Pokemon.

So example: when you have a Dugtrio and a Feraligatr in battle and
Dugtrio defeats Electabuzz, the rewarded EXP points given to Feraligatr
and Electabuzz will be 417 pts each.

/ 4. NOTA BENEs (NB)s /
----------------------

Just for advice and reminders here. That's what they practically serve
here and outside of this guide.

NB: In Kotone-Au onwards, trainer's Pokemon are now ordered by Level.
So this means you should expect those Pokemon you must battle, not in
the order in this guide.

After you have chosen your character, you will start your game in your
room. Head downstairs to be greeted by your mother. Who will give you your
bag, your Trainer ID Card and the options to customize your gameplay
(Game speed and Pokemon battle animations, etc.) and to Save your game.

Exit the house and you'll bump into a Marill and your counterpart
is named Ethan (if you're playing as a girl), and if you're playing
as the guy; then your counterpart is Lyra.

Head over to Elm's lab and you will see your Rival peeping at his window.
If you talk to him, he'll just shove you back. Enter Elm's lab.

Once your in the lab, head over to Prof. Elm. He will tell you that you
could pick your own Pokemon. But he will get a call from Mr. Pokemon
and then you pick your own starter. You can choose from the Grass-type
Chikorita, the fire-type Cyndaquil and the Water-type Totodile.

After choosing your starter, Elm will tell you to go to Route 30 to
Mr. Pokemon's house just beyond Cherrygrove City. Head towards the exit
of Elm's lab and Elm's aide by the door will give you 5 Potions. Go
to the exit.

When you're outside of Elm's lab, you will see your counterpart playing
with their Marill. Ehtan/Lyra will say how cute it is and blah, but
let's head over to your house. Talk to your mother and you'll get the
Pokegear.

Exit your house and go west of town. Professor Elm will stop you and
give you his number to add to your PokeGear. Now head west towards
Route 29.

   -----------------------------------

You have just left New Bark Town embarking onto a journey to Mr. Pokemon's
house. Here you can train up your starter (best up to Lv 8-9) so that
you can handle the first battle between you and your rival easily.

Getting through Route 29 to Cherrygrove City is a piece of cake. Just
follow the way and keep going left until you reach the City.

However, you can obtain a Potion on this route. From New Bark Town,
keep heading left, but go up the grass when you see a guy to the left.
Go right and then you will see a long, wide area of tall grass. Head
in a north-easternly direction and then right to obtain a Potion.

After that, you can just head west towards Cherrygrove City.

NB: There is a Green Apricorn tree you'll see on the way, but you can't
pick it yet. Because you'll need an Apricorn Case you'll get at Route 30
later on.

   -----------------------------------

There's no Gym in this town unfortunately, it's more of a city just to
get you used to the basics of Pokemon. Those who have played the Pokemon
series for a long time, you'll know what to do: Just heal up and skip
onto Route 30.

Once you enter Cherrygrove, you'll be stopped by an old man. Appparently
this Guide Gent is a guide for newcomers. He will show you the functions
and basics of a Pokemon Centre and a Pokemart. After he has introduced
you to all the basics, he will give you Running Shoes.

The good thing with the introduction of your inventory and main menu
being on the touch screen, means that you can register two items (eg -
a Bike and a Dowsing MCHN; too bad they don't have the Vs. Seeker
-______-;; , it is better than the PokeGear imo) and select one
whenever you please.

However, with the shoes you can just press once on the shoes and run
with the directional buttons without holding the B button down.

Once you're good to go, head for the northern exit to Route 30. However,
the Guide Gent will give you a Map Card for the PokeGear. Something
useful I guess.

Now let's move on!

   -----------------------------------

Go along the grass and you'll see a Potion to your right. Grab it and
let's go. Go up the stairs, past the bug catcher and enter the house.
Talk to the man to obtain a key item: The Apricorn Box. It will
become very useful in the game, where as you collect Apricorns from the
trees and they could be turned into custom balls by Kurt of Azalea
Town. Don't forget to take the Green Apricorn next to the man's house.

Even if you try to run past the house there, the man will come out
and give a good old whinge. However, he'll still give you an Apricorn
Box.

It's time to head for Mr. Pokemon's house. Go to the right of the
house where you obtained the Apricorn case. Go through the grass and to
the left will be an Antidote. The left side is blocked by two youngsters
going at each other, so don't mind them. Mr. Pokemon's house is to the
right side. So keep going to the upper right until you reach a house.
That house is Mr. Pokemon's house. Before you enter, let's just grab
the Pink Apricorn and enter.

Once you enter, Mr. Pokemon will notice you and he will give you
something to deliver to Prof. Elm (which is a Pokemon Egg). He will heal
your pokemon, and then Prof. Oak will come by. He will check your
starter and then give you a Pokedex.

This is the beginning of your Pokemon Journey.

Oak will give you his number. Head outside of Mr. Pokemon's house and
you will receive a call from Elm. He tells you that something dreadful
has happened. Let's head back to New Bark Town.

Follow the path back, jump down ledges as a shortcut back to
Cherrygrove City. If you bump into wild Pokemon, heal up at Cherrygrove
before you head to New Bark.

When you head towards New Bark Town... hello there new challenger...

 ---------------------------------------
Comment: Simple and easy battle. Use Tackle or whatever offensive moves
your starter has. I lol'ed at the first encounter; that they call
Silver a "Passerby Boy".

REFER TO THIS TABLE FOR THE STOLEN POKEMON. IF YOUR STARTER WAS...
YOU WILL BE AGAINST...

| Totodile   |   Chikorita   |       5        |        63 pts       |
 -------------------------------------------------------------------

After you beat him, just head back to New Bark Town and enter Prof.
Elm's Lab...

 ---------------
| New Bark Town |
 ---------------

Once you're in, the Policeman will ask you for Silver's name (your
rival actually). Name him and be free. Once you're done with the
cop, you will show the egg to Elm and he will be astounded. Then
Elm suggests that you compete in the Johto League and says that the
first gym is in Violet City. Okay! Next stop is Violet City! Now let's
get out of Elm's lab first. Before you even do that, stop by your
house to ask your mum.

She will offer you a service to get prize money, this is A DEFINITE
MUST. It's worth it to be honest and let's be on our way.

 ----------------------
| Route 30 (Part Two)  |
 ----------------------

Once you get to Route 29, Ethan/Lyra will be there with his/her Marill.
They'll show you on how to catch a Pokemon, people who know, disregard
this section, but still; you're forced to watch it -.-
Then Ethan/Lyra will give you 5 Pokeballs. Wow 5 Pokeballs, not much
really.

You might as well want to catch a Pokemon, its up to you what you want
to get. A Pidgey might be good if you got Chikorita, since Violet City's
Gym is Flying-types. Pidgey will be good against the second Gym too.

Once you've got through Route 29, you might as well get some more
Pokeballs from the PokeMart in Cherrygrove City if you want to catch
some more Pokemon. Once you've geared up and ready, head to Route 30.

Once you're good to go for Route 30, follow the path, past the Apricorn
man's house and to the split section, where one way was blocked before
and to Mr. Pokemon's house.

This time we'll head for the blocked way (where a battle between two
youngsters took place). The first youngster will be in tall grass, run
past him to grab his attention.

|                 |      |              |
 ---------------------------------------
Comment: Simple battle. You can deal with him EASILY.

Once you've beaten him, he'll ask you if you want to rego his number.
Accept or decline, it's totally up to you. Go up to grab the second
Youngster's attention.

 ---------------------------------------
|       CHALLENGER NO.2: YOUNGSTER      |
|            Youngster Mikey            |

 ---------------------------------------
Comment: Another simple battle. Deal the situation your way.

Beaten him? Goodie. Run up the steps, past the girl who's not a trainer,
run into tall grass and out and provoke the Bug Catcher.

 ---------------------------------------
|      CHALLENGER NO.3: BUG CATCHER     |
|            Bug Catcher Don            |

 ---------------------------------------
Comment: Once again, an easy battle. Note that Caterpie is weak against
Fire and Flying-types.

Beat the third trainer and go towards the steps, your mother will call
you and ask if you want her to save money for you. Personally, it would
be great, but I would decline. Answer yes or no to her and run along
towards Route 31.

   -----------------------------------

Coming in from Route 30, follow the path through the grass and past
the Dark Cave. Right now, it's not that essential in the game. It will
be covered in the Side quest section.

Run past it and collect another Potion just next to the cave's entrance.
Keep going left and collect the Black Apricorn before you head down
to the tall grass. Annoy the Bug Catcher first.

 ---------------------------------------
Comment: All weak against Fire basically. But mainly just Tackle or
Scratch will do against them.

After you beat that Bug Boy, he'll ask you whether to register his
number or not. However, this kid might be an exception to be honest.
He will offer you berries on occasions. Maybe yes, maybe no, totally
up to you. To the defeated Bug Catcher's right next to the tall grass
is a Poke Ball. Go left across the tall grass and follow the path to
Violet City.

When you're just about to enter the outskirts of Violet City, your
counterpart (Ethan/Lyra), comes along and gives you a Vs. Recorder.
A key item that records your battles from Wi-fi battles between you
and your mates or Battle Frontier finale challenges. Now let's enter
town.

   -----------------------------------

The Pokemon Centre is just there as you enter town. There's a Juggler
just next to it. He trades shards for berries, but you can't get any at
the moment.

Heal up and head north. In the Pokemon Centre, there is a Gentleman
who talks about Team Rocket's defeat three years ago (of course Red
of FR/LG beat Giovanni). Also, there's a Cooltrainer in here near the
Wireless Rooms. Talk to him to choose your Wi-Fi room sprite,
and you can change it whenever you like. There is a man named Primo
with a survey (but we can ignore him).

In town, to the left of the Pokemon Centre is a Schoolkid who is
willing to trade his Bellsprout for an Onix. You can do that, but
that's up to you.

The gym is busy at the moment until you battle Elder Li at the
Sprout Tower. There is a Pokemart next to the Gym's left, you can
buy extra Potions or Pokeballs if desired. Keep going up until you
cross two bridges and enter the Sprout Tower.

The Yellow Apricorn tree is on the way to Route 32.

 ---------------------------------------
Comment: Bellsprout is a Grass-type Pokemon. Primarily weak against
Fire and Flying-type moves.

When you're done with the Sage, go to the ladder nearby and climb down.

Here you're back onto the first floor. There is an item nearby the ladder
when you go down. Pick up the Paralyz Heal, head a bit back up (not up the
ladder) and go left until you bump into another sage.

Comment: Same situation like the last battle. Use the same tactics as
you did before.

Once that battle has been concluded, climb up the nearby ladder to reach
another section of the 2nd floor. Above you is an X Accuracy, grab it
and head down.

Back onto the Second floor, head down and a sage with long sight will
notice you.

Comment: Another sage who is the same like the past two battles we've
encountered.

When this sage has been dealt with, go right and climb up the ladder to
the third floor.

 -----------
| 3rd floor |
 -----------

Okay before you go on a battle rampage here, to the left of the ladder
you've just climbed is a Potion. Pick it up before you meet eyes with
the sages on guard. The third floor of this tower is unusual, because
you can encounter wild Pokemon here. Now go up to grab the attention
of the first sage here on 3F.

 ---------------------------------------
Comment: Bellsprout is the same, but just a level higher. Hoothoot
is a problem especially if you have Chikorita, but it is weak
to Ice and Electric-type moves.

Once you've beaten that Sage, go to the left of the pillar and you
will see your rival there. He will then talk about the elder being
a piece of cake, then makes his exit. Now talk to the old man.

 ----------------------------------------
Comment: Same thing as before, but Hoothoot will get annoying quickly
when it is out. It will mainly use Hypnosis to put your Pokemon to
sleep.

After that battle, Elder Li admits defeat and gives you the TM70
(which is Flash obviously). The cave before Violet City is dark, so
you can go explore there if you want, but theres nothing special
in that cave. After that, pick up the Escape Rove in the right corner.

You could use the Escape Rope and get out instantly, or be cheap and
go down all the way. Just use the Escape Rope.

Okay now you're outside the Sprout Tower now. The Gym is open, and
Faulkner is accepting challengers. Heal up and buy what you need at
the Pokemart and then enter the Gym. A Mareep can be caught at
Route 32, which is an Electric-type Sheep. Could be useful against
Faulkner and his bird companions.

The gym is similar to Pewter City's Gym if you think about, but its
up high obviously. There are two ways to Faulkner: One is to avoid the
trainers and go to him directly, or two, you can smash the trainers
and then be ready for Faulkner.

Let's go for the trainers first.

STARTING POKEMON: Pidgey.

Comment: Pidgey is really easy to deal with, no dramas. But
Pidgeotto is annoying on the other hand. He would often use Roost
to heal his HP and stall the battle.

After you've beaten Faulkner, its all over and you've just got yourself
the Zephyr Badge: The first Johto League Badge. Now, that's not just
all: you also get TM51 which is Roost. A healing move for birds
obviously.. Now let's exit the gym.

Okay, time to get out of Violet City. But Prof. Elm calls you and says
he's got something for you and his aide is over at the Pokemart in
Violet. Time to heal first and head over there.

Prof. Elm's aide will give you an egg to look after. It contains a
Lv 1 Togepi with Extrasensory. Which is nice and then he'll be on his
way. Buy yourself some gear here, an Escape Rope and maybe some Repels.
They'll come in handy later on. A Kimono Girl will come and say stuff,
but it's not that important.

We'll see them play a bigger role for the star Pokemon (Lugia).
The way she went is directly to Route 32, (where the Yellow Apricorn
is) which would lead to the next town: Azalea Town. If you're planning
to go the Ruins of Alph, its your choice. But I'm going to cover it in
the Sidequest section in probably the final update.

 ----------
| Route 36 |
 ----------

Instead of following the Kimono Girl, follow the path that goes up
and then left to a tollbooth. You'll reach Route 36 and just head left.
Talk to the fat guy to obtain a HM06, which is Rock Smash. If you try
to keep going left, you'll see a "tree" that moves. It can't be
helped at the moment, instead, go back and go through the Ruins of
Alph.

Just follow the path out east and you'll be onto Route 32.

 ----------
| Route 32 |
 ----------

Now once we're back on track, go right until you see tall grass and
then head down. You'll be stopped by a bold man, he'll then give you
a Miracle Seed. It's a held item to boost the power of Grass-type moves.
Not that important at the moment. Just take it and go.

Run down past the wild grass until you see a Youngster looking around.
Let's go and challenge him.

 ---------------------------------------
Comment: This Zubat is highly dependent on Leech Life...

After that little ruckus, behind that little mountain there (to the
south-west) with tall grass has a Repel. Grab it and return back
to the path. Talk to the little Picknicker girl to provoke her
into a battle.

 ---------------------------------------
Comment: A Poison-type female Nidoran has been brought out. Beware
that it has a Special Ability called "Poison Point". A small chance
done by Physical attacks can poison the attacker.

After you have beaten her, she'll offer you to register her phone
number. Accept or decline, its totally up to you. Moving on,
follow the path and shortly it will split and regroup later on.
But just ignore the stairs for now.

Keep going down and you'll see the monorail tracks, it looks more nice;
back on topic, shortly you'll bump into a Camper.

 ---------------------------------------
Comment: Same thing, but a male version of the Nidoran series.

After you're done with him, walk into the and back up to collect a
Great Ball. A more efficient ball with a slightly high catch rate
compared to the standard Poke Ball. Go back and ignore the stairs,
but go left into a small cliff and some tall grass. You'll
then pick up a TM09, which contains Bullet Seed (which is one of the
weakest moves in the game). Head back and down the stairs you go,
past some tall grass and catch the attention of another Youngster.

Comment: Yuck Woopers.

Ugh this kid has a Wooper, disregard and take him out. Good if you
have a Chikorita, bad situation if you have a Cyndaquil/Quilava. Now,
he's done just follow the path and you'll reach a Pokemon Centre.
Heal up, but don't enter Union Cave just yet. We've just got a bit
to do before we don't came back here! Heal up and be ready.

Now head back, but follow the path where the Wooper Trainer was.
You'll come to a bridge and see some Fishermen enjoy their hobby.
The first fisherman has his back towards you, talk to him for a quick
battle.

 ----------------------------------------
Comment: Goldeen CAN BE VERY ANNOYING with Supersonic (the move that
makes your Pokemon confused).

After beating him, he'll ask you if you could register his number.
It's an accept or decline situation here, so it's totally up to you.
Follow the path still back up there, until you find another two
fishermen enjoying their leisure time. Time to interrupt their hobby.

We will bother the first fisherman closest to us.

as your starter. If not, disregard and it is an easy battle.

All right, that's the second last guy in that area. So where is this
last guy? Well, he's at the entrance to Union Cave! Head back down,
heal and you'll find him near the entrance to the cave.

 ----------------------------------------
Comment: If you got a Mareep, you could shock the Bird Pokemon out of
the sky. If your Croconaw knows Ice Fang, use it.

You might want to heal after that battle, so just go ahead and do that.
Inside the Pokemon Centre, to the left is a Fisherman from the counter
is willing to give you a Old Rod (which can only catch Magikarp). Also,
talk to the bold guy to his south-west to obtain two Lure Balls. These
Lure Balls work best when you battle a Pokemon you brought out of the
water with a Rod. Noticed that this is the same guy from Route 30
who gave you the Apricorn Box?

Plus there's this fat tax to the west of the Pokemon Centre thinking
he could sell a SlowPokeTail for a 1 million Pokedollars... okay...

Behind the Bird Keeper is a smashable rock, use Rock Smash and grab
the Shell Bell there. Once you're ready, enter Union Cave.

Comment: Water. Water. Water.

Head down those stairs, then head left to pick up a TM39 which allows
a specific Pokemon to use Rock Tomb. Then go back towards the stairs,
but before you run up those stairs, head north and collect the
X Defend. Now head back up the stairs. Now you can go down, past
the firebreather, and down where you be noticed by a Hiker.

NB: An upper part of Union Cave requires Surf.

Comment: 3 Geodudes is so old... take them out with Water-type moves.

Follow the path, but on the way you will see three rocks on the
right of the very narrow path. However, walk inside the gap and talk
to the wall to obtain a Great Ball. Now follow the path to run
into another Firebreather's line of sight.

Comment: Koffing has a low defense rating, so it should be easily
taken care of.

After defeating the Firebreather, in the bottom right corner will
be a Great ball. Grab it and go left until you reach a lake, but ]
go up and follow the narrow path to the left to obtain a Potion.
Head back right and then go down until you bump into a PokeManiac.

Comment: Slowpoke is a tank, with a high defense rating. This battle
might take a while unless if you have a Dark or Electric-type move
ready.

Now keep going right and then down until you reach the exit, by the
exit there will be an Awakening. Grab it and exit the cave.

Once you're in town, you'll see a confrontation between a man and a
shady man in black. Then the grunt will tell him to piss off, okay,
it doesn't matter to us. Heal up and buy some gear before we enter
to tax for our second badge. But wait... there's another guy in black
at the gym! Now this is personal, the grunt won't move, who can solve
this problem?.

Head left a bit and you'll find a house with a White Apricorn tree
next to it. Grab the White Apricorn and enter the house. It's an old
man... what good can he do? Because we go to Slowpoke Well, there is
another house south of the Pokemon Centre. About two cells from the
door is a Full Heal in that pile of wood. Now head over to Slowpoke
Well. (The place on the right end of town). Enter Slowpoke Well and
then talk to Kurt once you're inside.

Ekans can be dealt with easily.

Just before head left, just go down and talk to the rock in the

 ----------------------------------------
Comment: Seriously I hate the new names they thought up for the
English dub of HG/SS for the Rocket Executives. Even the Japanese
names for them sound way better. However, Zubat hates Electricity,
but Koffing here is a tank if you have weak attackers. End the
battle as quickly as you can.

Proton ain't scary and mean as he says, he's too lanky to be
either or both of these lol. And he's living below the poverty line!
$480! This is nothing!

After that battle, he'll mumble about Team Rocket's (weightless)
potential and stuff. Like that matters to you at the moment, but
you will have a role against them later on. The old man will
come in and introduce himself as Kurt, then he will take you
to his house.

At Kurt's house, he will give you a Fast Ball (which is a Special
Apricorn Ball in Johto), then he will offer to make you an Apricorn
Ball. After you decided to or not, Kurt's daughter will ask you if
you want to register Kurt's number. Another Accept or Decline
situation.

Now, you could either go and challenge your rival now; or go and
take the Second Badge by storm. Let's do the gym first.

Comment: This little boy has the evolution line of the Weedle series.
Weedle and Kakuna are straight forward. Whilst Beedrill is a dual-type
Bug and Flying, but is pretty tank if you're under-leveled. Fire can
solve all of that.

After you beat that trainer, hit the blue switch nearby to fight
another trainer.

STARTING POKEMON: Scyther.

Comment: The only challenge you got in this battle is the hardcore
Scyther. Scyther can be a difficult opponent, but it is not impossible
to beat. Beware of its U-Turn move, it is basically a hit and run move
(where as Scyther damages your Pokemon and switches with maybe Metapod
or Kakuna). Scyther is very weak against Fire, but it can take a lot of
damage in. Once you got Scyther out of the way, the battle is then
very easy.

Once you've beat Bugsy, you'll great your second badge: the Hive Badge
and a TM89 - which is U-Turn. The hit and run move Scyther used
earlier in the battle. Once you're done, hit the blue switch and
ride the spiders out of the gym.

STARTING POKEMON: Gastly.

Comment: Gastly is something new - of course: its a Ghost-type Pokemon.
Only Special-type attacks would work (like Ember and Water Gun). But
if your Croconaw knows Bite, then it's super-effective against Gastly.
Zubat is weak against Rock and Electric-type moves. Whilst the Stolen
Pokemon (Quilava, Bayleef or Croconaw [depends on which starter you
have chosen]) can be a challenge.

If your starter was...

 --------------
| Ilex Forest  |
 --------------

Now enter the tollbooth and you'll be in Ilex Forest. Follow the path
and a guy will notice you, he'll tell you that two of his
Farfetch'd have disappeared nearby. Simply you just have to use
the sticks to distract the Farfetch'd and catch them from behind.
During quest you should pick up a Revive.

When that's done, you'll be rewarded with HM01: which is Cut. Before
you go deeper into the forest, head back towards Azalea Town.
Head for the Charcoal House and talk to the Schoolkid Apprentice.
He will then give you a Charcoal; which is a held item for Pokemon
to boost Fire-type moves.

Teach Cut and chop the tree nearby and follow the path. On the way you
will pick up an X-Attack, you'll probably notice a fat guy there. In
one of the gaps between the trees, there is a Super Potion. Before you
reach the Kimono Girl at the end of the forest, you will have a chance
to go around a small path and learn Headbutt off him.

If you decided to or not, just go for the Kimono Girl and say yes
or no, it doesn't matter. Once that's done, grab the Ether in the upper
right corner and follow the path to exit the forest. At the exiting
tollboth, talk to the lady next to the Butterfree to obtain a TM12
(which contains Taunt).

NB: By the way, if you have unlocked the Pikachu-coloured Pichu event
    and the Celebi event via. Nintendo Wi-Fi, come back to here later
    to do those events in front of the shrine.

    For the Celebi event to go ahead smoothly, make sure your party is
    above level 50.

Good, you're nearly there to Goldenrod City. Now, encounter the first
trainer you see - which is a Youngster.

 ----------------------------------------
|        CHALLENGER NO.1: YOUNGSTER      |
|             Youngster Samuel           |

 ----------------------------------------
Comment: Very, easy battle. Rattata, do anything you like. Sandshrew
hates Water, and apprently Spearow doesn't like Electric or Ice
attacks.

After that ruckus, follow the path until you bump into a Pokefan.

 ----------------------------------------

|             Pokefan Brandon            |

 ----------------------------------------
Comment: Snubull has a fairly high defense rating at the moment, but
it hates Fighting-type moves. Mareep however dislikes Ground-type
moves and Pokemon.

Follow the path again and you'll bump into another Youngster.

 ----------------------------------------
|        CHALLENGER NO.3: YOUNGSTER      |
|              Youngster Ian             |

 ----------------------------------------
Comment: Drown Diglett with Water-type moves and Mankey doesn't like
Psychic or Flying-type Pokemon.

Alright, after that battle. The Youngster will ask you if you want
his number or not. Accept or decline: it's totally up to you. In
the corner (upper right corner) in the tall grass, the upper tree
has a Super Potion. Grab it and let's go. Alright, let's just run down
in the grass and into a puddle. A female picknicker with long sight
will notice you.

 ----------------------------------------
Comment: All weak to Fire, Ice and Flying-type moves.

After that she'll ask you if you want her number. Say yes to her.
Since she'll often call you and present you with a gift -
which that gift can turn out to be a Leafstone!

Now get back on the path and Ethan/Lyra will appear infront of the
day-care centre. They will demonstrate about its use and then he/she
will give you their number. Once you exit the place, you'll also
receive the numbers of the Old Man and Lady's numbers for the
daycare.

Now let's just be on our way: head up and you'll probably be
noticed by a Camper with a long sight.

 ----------------------------------------
|         CHALLENGER NO.5: CAMPER        |
|               Camper Todd              |

|                 |       |              |
 ----------------------------------------
Comment: Electric-type or Grass-type moves do good here.

Okay, he'll ask for your number this one too. It's totally up to you
to register or not, and just move on. Before you enter Goldenrod,
to the right of the Camper is tall grass. There is an item in that
tall grass which is a TM63. Grab it and now enter Goldenrod City.

NB: I also sugguest you to catch a Drowzee on Route 34, it'll become
    useful for a trade that could aid us in defeating Goldenrod Gym.

NB 2: A good suggestion is to also catch an Abra, may be difficult to
      weaken and catch, but hopefully you still got a Fast Ball from
      Kurt you obtain in Azalea earlier. The Fast Ball will ensure
      a 100% catch rate on the first turn (because it only knows
      Teleport at Level 10).

      Levelling it up to a Kadabra later on (at least Level 30) will
      be useful against the fifth gym.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
| AFTER GETTING SURF |
 --------------------

[Please disregard this section if you are going for your third Gym badge
 of Goldenrod City].

If you bother coming back here when you got Surf, you will be able to
grab a couple of things on Route 34. First off I would recommend coming
here at night. Head south from Goldenrod and you should be in the line
of sight of a curious Policeman.

 ----------------------------------------
|       CHALLENGER NO.6: POLICEMAN       |
|            Policeman Keith             |

|                 |       |              |
 ----------------------------------------
Comment: Use either Rock or Water-type moves here.

After that ruckus, head towards the water and surf on it. Surf a bit
down and disembark on the space behind the fence and Picknicker Gina.
Use your Downsing MCHN to find a Rare Candy on the ground. You should
also see a Nugget in the bottom right corner - semi-covered by the
trees. Grab it and let's move.

Now get back on to the water surface and continue surfing south. Keep
following the path and you should disembark into a forest path. Just
follow the path and you should bump into a double battle with two
female Ace Trainers.

 --------------------------------------------------------------------
Comment: All are weak against Electric and Grass-type moves. On an
additional note, Starmie is also weak against Dark-type moves.

Now head one more cell down to battle another female Ace Trainer.

 -----------------------------------------
Comment: Use either Grass or Electric-type moves to make this battle
easy for you.

All right, all three sisters have been mopped up and the oldest sister,
Kate, rewards you a Power Herb. It "allows the immediate use of a move
that charges on the first turn". To simplify this: you could use
Solarbeam for instance, without the "sunlight" delay.

Think of the Power Herb as a "source of temporary sunlight" for one turn.
Anyways, that's all here.

[I apologise to the people who needed to refer to Goldenrod City, I needed
to put this somewhere in the guide :P]

   -------------------------------------

Alright, a bit of errands and goodies to obtain here. Let's stop by the
Pokemon Centre and heal up. Across it is the Super-sized Pokemart,
everything that you need is available here [Hyper Potions, Ultra Balls,
the like.] I would recommend you to buy Full Heals at this time, they
will be very useful instead of buying seperate stuff (Awakenings,
Antidotes, the like). And also Lemonade which can be bought from
the top floor.

If you caught a Drowzee earlier (you can catch them at
Route 34 if you didn't), so you can trade it for a Machop. Machop
will be handy against this city's gym. The trade can be made with a
fat guy on 5F.

Use the elevator and go down to B1F. You will see Karate
guys with Machokes, talk to them and the Machokes will move boxes
out of the way.

The first one nearby will allow you to obtain an Ultra Ball. Grab it
and talk to the second Karate guy. Talk to the Karate guy when he is
facing at one of them at a time, that way they'll move the boxes.
One leads to an Ether, whilst the last one leads to a Burn Heal.

Near the PokeMart is the Bicycle Shop from Kanto, they've just moved
into the region and they aren't doing too well. So, let's pay them a
visit. Go around and enter the bicycle shop. Say 'yes' two times and
you'll receive a free Bicycle! Now exit the place. Let's head for
the Game Corner just above the Pokemon Centre.

An edit in the Australian version is the Game Corner here. Now you
get the Coin Case from some guy sitting in the middle of the place.
Just say 'yes' to his question and there you go; you got yourself a
Coin Case. Let's just exit the place.

If you bother, Voltorb Flip is like Minesweeper. Decent imo, and
a bit of a decisive game.

Yucky edit I would have to say. Japan's version is just a general
gambling area. Don't know about the North American Version, but the
Aussie version has been changed. Maybe to crack down on encouragement
of Gambling these days.

 ------------------------
| Goldenrod Underground  |
 ------------------------

Let's stop by the Underground, which is the place where it looks like
its going down. There are two entry points, one at the northern end
of Goldenrod and one just west of the Pokemon Centre. Go to the one
near the Pokemon Centre and you'll be greeted by Ethan/Lyra again.

They will give you a Fashion case, so that you could start collecting
accessories and dress up your Pokemon, like you did in D/P/Pt (Diamond,
Pearl and Platinum).

Now go downstairs, and oh right... there are trainers here, well good
for experience and levelling up that Machop!

 ----------------------------------------
Comment: Psychic-type moves work great here. If you don't have one,
put out your strongest attacks on Grimer.

Head up a bit and shortly you'll bump into a Pokemaniac. Whip out
Machop before you meet eyes with him.

 ----------------------------------------
Comment: Lol his name rhymes. Use Machop's Fighting type moves
against Lickitung.

IF YOU GOT THE JAPANESE VERSION:

Just next to that defeated Pokemaniac is a Coin Case. Pretty rare
for someone just to ditch it here, but well it's their loss. Grab
it and let's go.

Keep going up and you'll bump into another Nerd and Pokemaniac
respectively. Intitate a battle with them now.

 ----------------------------------------
Comment: Magnemite is a dual Electric/Steel type Pokemon. Steel types
hate Fighting moves, so Machop is great in handling this situation.
Voltorb is a stand alone Electric-type which can be easily dealt
with.

 ----------------------------------------
Comment: Psychic-types are resistant to Fighting-types here and can
own them easily. So don't bother whipping out Machop here. If you can
Electric-type or a Pokemon that knows Bite or Crunch, great, use
it.

After that ruckus, you can go upstairs and exit the underground. But
to the right here is a dressing room here for your Pokemon. That's
where the accessories come in. If you want to dress your Pokemon, its
totally up to you. I would prefer not to since its a waste of time. Now
exit the place.

 -----------------------
| Goldenrod Radio Tower |
 -----------------------

Alright we'll stop by the gym first. You should be at the northern
end of Goldenrod. Head east and what in the world? There's someone
blocking the entrance and she says the gym leader is at the Radio
Tower. Alright, let's stop by there.

Just head down and past the monorail overhead tracks and a left after
the bridge. Keep heading left shortly and you'll see a big black tower
with a Rocket Grunt staring at it. That's the Radio Tower, now enter
the building.

Once you're in there's the reception. However, just stroll right a bit
and you'll see a different looking girl. That's Whitney - the gym
leader (or gym brat) of this town (a kid lol >_>). Now, talk to the
lady across her and answer the questions this way:

Yes, Yes, No, Yes, No.

Anyways you'll win the Radio Card for your Pokegear, so you can listen
to the radio on the go. After that, Whitney will say she keeps getting a
certain question wrong and heads to the gym. I suggest that you should
level up your Machop and your other Pokemon up to Lv 20 or beyond, so
that you won't have any problems with the challenges inside the Gym.

Once you're ready, enter the Gym.

 ----------------------------------------
STARTING POKEMON: Clefairy.

Comment: Easy battle. Both Miltank and Clefairy are weak against
Fighting-type moves. Clefairy can dealt with a Low Kick and a Karate
Chop (or 1 hit KO Karate Chop). Miltank is a heavy enemy, so Low Kick
will work very well here, since Miltank uses Stomp a lot, Revenge
will be super effective in this situation.

You've won, great. But Whitney is crying, damn it. She'll refuse to
give you the badge and let's walk away. When you walk out, a lass will
notice you and tell you to go back to her.

Alright, we'll go back to her. She will now give you the Plain Badge
and a TM45 which contains Attract. Now let's exit the gym.

| Goldenrod City |
 ----------------

Alright, heal up and stock up if you need to. Stop by the gym again,
but don't enter it. See a small Flower Shop next to it on the right?
Enter it and talk to the lady to obtain a Squirtbottle. We will need
this on while we are on our way to Ecruteak City.

She will also talk about a strange tree on Route 36 and requests you
use the Squirtbottle to wet it. So that is reason why we need it.
Exit the shop and get out of Goldenrod by the northern exit of town.
At the Goldenrod Tollbooth, talk to the man in red to obtain a
Spearow. He wants you to deliver it to the fat sleepy guy on Route
31. We'll do that in a bit.

and shortly there's a Firebreather near the defeated Juggler.

This guy will also be impressed and asks for your number, accept or
decline since its your decision and move on. Now before the tollbooth,
there are two ways into Route 36. One is directly and one is indirect
through National Park, but you'll get more money and experience then.
I will explore both.

 -----------------------------------

 --------------------------
| Route 36 - Direct Route  |

To take the Direct route, go through the tall grass on the right.
YOU WILL NEED CUT. Run through it until you're spotted by a Bug Catcher
in the tall grass near a cuttable tree.

Comment: Bug types don't like Flying Predators and Fire Pokemon right?

We will get to the tree in a moment, but run down the grass first and
make the first left. Follow the path and grab the Parlyz Heal, run
out and run down the grass again. Follow the path and remember the
Bird Keeper on the other side of the fence? Talk to him to start a
battle.

 -----------------------------------------
Comment: They all hate Rock and Electric-type moves.

From your position, there should be a path to the right. Collect the
item and it contains a TM66. TM66 contains Payback. Now follow the
path back and up to where the Bug Catcher you defeated first and to
the cuttable tree. Cut the tree and go through and follow the path.
Skip the National Park Section and continue reading from Route 36.

 -----------------------------------------------
| Route 36 - Indirect Route via. National Park  |
 -----------------------------------------------

Enter through the tollbooth and there will be two exits. One leads
to the National Park and one leads to the Pokeathlon. The far left
exit leads to the Pokeathlon, whilst the one infront of you leads to
the National Park. The Pokeathlon will be explained in a way later
update. However, let's pay the place a visit.

 -----------------
| Pokeathlon Dome |
 -----------------

Just head north and you'll encounter the manager of the place. Who is
Magnus, he'll greet you and brief on about the purpose behind
Pokeathlons. Just head north a bit towards the entrance of the building,
but don't enter it.

Instead, we'll head left and talk a person who looks like that works in
a Pokemart (he's standing next to some machines). Talk to him to obtain
an Apriblender. The purpose of an Apriblender is to produce Apricorn
Juice from Apricorns you have gathered in your Box (the ApriBlender is
an add-on to your Apricorn Box).

All you have to do put in a couple of Apricorns (maximum of 5) and
then just walk around until you produce some juice. Of course, the
juice you have produced can improve the star ratings of your Pokemon
(as featured in your Pokemon's Summary).

Unfortunately, there is an Oppertunity Cost and a drawback to using the
juice. The drawback is that if you improve one stat, another stat
(often one or two) will decrease. An example could be you improve your
Pokemon's Jump, whilst their Stamina or even their Skill rating drops.
This is an example, so don't go curious and "oh that's wrong" about
it.

The Oppertunity Cost is that whilst the Apricorns are being made as
juice, they could have been converted into one of Kurt's Specials
(Apricorn Balls) lol. Alright, head back towards the tollbooth of
National Park (head back east towards the Pokeathlon Dome's entrance
and head down south).

Once you're in the booth, head right and then up towards the entrance
of National Park.

 ---------------
| National Park |
 ---------------

Follow the path and head first before the upwards turn. To the right
will be a lady next to a Persian, talk to her to obtain a Quick
Claw. Now head upwards until you reach a big stretch of tall grass
ahead of you. Best to put on some Repels if you don't want to battle
weak Pokemon.

Head towards the Pokefan and battle her.

Comment: Remember Goldenrod's Normal Gym? Remember Fighting-type moves
are their weaknesses? Use it against them!

After that quick ruckus, the woman will be interested in asking you
for your number. Accept or decline, it's totally up to you. Near the
Pokefan is a man in the grass, who would take a picture of you and
your Pokemon in front of the fountain. It is entirely up to you to
get it taken or not. Now let's move on.

Now head east and you will bump into a School kid.

into super tall grass and soon you will bump into another Pokefan.

Comment: Fire and Flying Birds for Oddish, Fighting-type and
Ice Skating moves for Cubone.

This Lass will also be impressed and wants your number. Accept or
decline and move on. Now let's go northeast, so go North-east of the
super tall grass until you see a boy with a DS. Enter through the
opening and go left in there. Follow the path and you will pick up
a TM28 (which is half-covered by a tree but still visible), TM28 is
Dig.

Now head back by following the path, but go to the right of the
boy with the DS. You will see a rocky ledge, but ignore it for now.
That will have to wait for a LONG LONG time. Keep following the path
and you will shortly obtain a Soothe Bell. The Soothe Bell is a good
held item for your party Pokemon. Follow the path back and get out
of National Park. Head south-east from the boy with the DS towards
the tollbooth entering Route 36.

 ----------
| Route 36 |

Alright, once you enter there is a Blue Apricorn tree to the upper
right corner, empty it and head south. You will bump into a Psychic
now.

Now shortly you will go down and make a right, this is also the turn
where the "Direct route 36-ers" enter Route 36. Now keep heading right
until you bump into a School Kid.

Comment: Tangela is a Grass-type Tank. High defense rating, even if
you throw Fire-type moves against it. It is weak against Fire and Ice
moves.

After another School Kid related defeat, he will also ask for your
number. You should accept this one, there's a slight chance that
when he calls you, you might get lucky with a Fire Stone. Eventually
you will reach where that strange tree was when you came in from
Violet City  earlier. And there is Floria of Goldenrod's Flower
Shop infront of it. She tells you to use the Squirtbottle. Now
save the game and use the Squirtbottle.

Comment: Sudowoodo hates Water and Fighting-type moves.


If you caught it, good. If you killed, it doesn't matter - but its not
much EXP given anyways. The girl is glad that the 'tree' is gone and
rewards you with the key item: The Berry Pots. This is a mobile
planter that allows you to plant and grow berries on the go.

She then gives you a couple of Oran and Pecha Berries. The girl then
heads back towards Goldenrod City, and now you can buy mulch/fertilisers
from Goldenrod City's Flower shop. Now that the 'tree' is gone, we
can head east into Violet City to heal up and stock up.

 -------------
| Violet City |
 -------------

While we're at Violet City, let's stop by Route 31 to deliver that
Spearow.

 ----------
| Route 31 |
 ----------

While we are infront of the Tollbooth of Violet City, just head right
and jump off the the ledge or use Cut on the tree. Grab the Black
Apricorn (if there is any on it) and then talk to the fat guy
in front of the small lake.

Select "Kenya" (the Spearow) in your party and you'll be rewarded with
a TM44. TM44 is Rest: pretty much just sleep for 2-3 turns and recover
HP. Now let's head back inside Violet City to the Route 36 intersection
and follow the path on to Route 37.

Before you reach Route 37, the path splits between two paths between
trees, on the left side, is a Hyper Potion visible in your sights.

Comment: Drowzee gets pretty damn annoying when it uses Hypnosis and
then Dream Eater to knock out your Pokemon. Counter it with Dark-type
moves.

After beating that Psychic, run up the grass and you will come to three
Apricorn trees. A Red, Blue and Black Apricorn can be obtained here.
Empty those trees and head downwards back to the forked road.

Now head towards the left and battle the Twins there.

Head for the Pokemon Centre first, it's just to the right when you
enter town. When you're inside, Bill will get you and talk about his
Pokemon Storage System and heads off back home to Goldenrod City.

Heal up and stock up if you need to. The Pokemart is north-east of
the Pokemon Centre and is pretty close. Let's stop by the Kimono House,
its just north of the Pokemon Centre.

When you enter, a "Thud" appears on the screen and you will a Rocket
Grunt annoying a Kimono Girl. Get up there on the stage and battle the
Rocket Grunt.

 ----------------------------------------
Comment: Very easy battle. Throw whatever you've got at Koffing.

After that battle, the Rocket Grunt makes a run for it. Walk off the
stage and a Gentleman approaches you. He will give you an HM03, which
contains Surf. We can't use it yet, we'll need this town's badge:
which is the Fog Badge.

If you feel like it, you can stalk Bill back to Goldenrod City to
get a free Eevee, which is at Level 5 (Bill's house is the small
place west of the Goldenrod Pokemon Centre).

To the south-west of  the Kimono house is a small house, inside,
talk to the Cooltrainer and say 'yes' to obtain a Dowsing Machine.
We'll shall call it the  oldschool Item Finder for the rest of
this guide (because it's more simple and less complex than the
name Dowsing Machine).

Morty ain't at this gym, so let's stop by the Burned Tower.

 --------------
| Burned Tower |
 --------------

Once you're inside the Burned Tower, to the right are Euisine and
Morty. They are just investigating the place, and as we can see,
the three legendary dogs are below us. Follow the path to the ladder
and we see our rival. Well he wants a battle, we'll give him a battle!

 ----------------------------------------
STARTING POKEMON: Gastly.

Comment: Another decent challenger once in a while. Gastly is weak
to Dark-type moves obviously, so Bite or Crunch works well here.
The Stolen Pokemon depends on your starter, whilst Zubat is weak to
Rock and Electric-type moves. Magnemite is weak to Fire, Fighting and
Ground type moves.

After that little ruckus, your rival leaves the place. Don't go down
the ladder just yet. Walk upwards past the ladder and challenge the
Firebreather there.

 -----------------------------------------
Comment: Koffing can easily dealt with Psychic-type moves. Growlithe
is just another Fire-type, but can taken out with Water-type moves.

To the left is an Antidote, grab it and keep heading left. Keep
going left and shortly you'll be spotted by another Firebreather.

 -----------------------------------------
Comment: Extinguish Charmeleon's flame with Water.

Follow the path down and use Rock Smash to obtain a HP UP. Follow the
path backwards and now go down the ladder. When you approach near
the legendary dogs, they'll make a run for it. Euisine will come in
and shocked about Suicune and blahs. We can't get the item in the upper
left corner, since we'll need Strength. Climb up the ladder and exit
the place.

Heal up and stock up if you need to. Now head for the city's gym:
Ecruteak Gym.

The Weakness of Ghost-type Pokemon may be strange, but its the truth.
This also applies to Dragon-type Pokemon as an example. If you don't
have a Ghost-type, bring a Pokemon that knows any Special-type moves
like Water, Fire or Electric will do.

Follow the path upwards until you bump into a Medium.

 -----------------------------------------
Comment: Gastly is a dual Ghost/Poison type Pokemon. So its weak
against Psychic, Dark and Ghost-type moves.

The candles of that Medium will go out and the path will be black.
Fall down and you will be at the front of the gym, but the candles will
be back.

Best to follow these steps:

1 Step Up, 3 Steps to the right and follow the path up to the next
Medium.

 -----------------------------------------
Comment: Haunter, the evolved form of Gastly. The same rules apply
here; Ghost, Dark and Psychic-type moves work best against it.

Candles go out for the Second Medium. Now go 1 step to the right,
2 steps up and go all the way left until you bump into the next
Medium.

 -----------------------------------------
Comment: Ghost, Dark or Psychic-type moves work against the odds.

Now, now, we're only half way there. Head 1 step down, 2 steps left,
1 step up, 1 step to the left and go all the way up to the final
Medium in this gym.

 -----------------------------------------
Comment: Ghost, Dark or Psychic-type moves can take out this lot.

It's a bit dodgy here, if you want, you can be cheap and fall down
and walk over again with the candles re-lit. Follow the path upwards
and battle Ecruteak's Gym Leader: Morty.

STARTING POKEMON: Gastly.

Comment: Same rules apply as before. This is the Gastly evolution
line. Use Ghost, Dark or Psychic-type moves here. Note that Gengar
has a Sitrus Berry and will use it when on medium HP.

After that ruckus, Morty will reward you with the Fog Badge and a
TM30. TM30 contains Shadow Ball, a good Ghost-type move in the game.
Drop down the holes in the gym to end up back at the front. Now
exit the place.

When you're all good to go, head west of the city towards Route 38.

Static. Psyduck can be shocked out in no-time with Electric-type moves.

She will ask you for your number, this one you must accept. Sometimes
she will ring your Pokegear and give you a Thunderstone. Keep following
the path near the fence and you will be spotted by a School Kid.

unleash the force lol.

The kid will want your number, of course, accept or decline and move on-
BUT HEY! HE'S BLOCKING THE WAY. Now head back and south-west into the
tall grass. Talk to the Beauty in the tall grass to battle her.

Comment: Freeze them out with Ice-type moves, or Shock them with
Electric-type moves.

After that little ruckus, there should be a White Apricorn tree just
outside the fence. Grab the White Apricorn and jump off the ledge on
the right to grab a Max Potion.

Follow the path west, up the tall grass, pass the Beauty you've
defeated earlier and get on to the main road. Follow the path west and
you will be on Route 39.

 ----------
| Route 39 |
 ----------

When you get on to the Crossroads, you'll be noticed by a Gentleman.
Apparently he's the Safari Zone Manager, and you can say 'Yes' to
receive his number in your PokeGear. Too bad you can't decline...

To the Upper left road from where you are heading to is the a MooMoo
Ranch. Up there you can pick Green Apricorns from that tree. There is
a bold guy there, who would take a photo of you and your Pokemon in
front of the ranch.

Enter the ranch (the right entrance) and talk to the owners. Then go
left in the house to enter the shed. Feed the Miltank between the
girls - 7 Oran Berries (the count doesn't go back to zero, it stays
where ever you left off).

If the Miltank has fully recovered, talking to the girl on the left
will get you a Seal Case. A Seal Case can design your Pokeballs like in
D/P/Pt. Talk to the girl on the left again to get a couple more seals
in to your case.

Head right to enter back in to the Ranch's house. Talk to the woman
to get a TM83. TM83 contains Natural Gift. Go outside to where all the
Miltank are and down the hill. Behind the tower is a TM60 - which
contains Drain Punch. Grab it and let's go.

Get out of the ranch fields and get back on to the road. Go down
and distract the Psychic on the right.

Once you're in town and approach the Gym, your Rival comes out and
there won't be a battle. There is a house just South-east of the Gym
nearby. Go inside it and talk to the Fisherman to receive a Good
Rod.

Follow the path around and you can heal up at the Pokemon Centre.
To the right is the PokeMart, so you can gear up there too. Go right of
the PokeMart and then up, you should come up to two houses. There
should be a small little path to the left of the First House, walk up
it and talk to the rock to get a Full Heal.

By the way in the left house near where you found your Full Heal,
there is a Fisherman willing to trade a Krabby for a Voltorb. In
the right house, if you got the Seal Case, there is a little girl
that will give you some seals everyday to design your Pokemon
capsules.

Now head back down and keep going down until you reach the steps
on the right of the cliff. Climb those steps and enter the
Lighthouse.

Now head right to drop down a level. You will be outside, follow the

To the right of the Sailor is an Ether. Pick it up and move on to the

position, and talking to the floor will get you a Hyper Potion.
Head up and try to make a run for the ladder. A Bird Keeper will
notice you.

Talk to Jasmine, the girl next to the Ampharos. She says it's sick
and she requests you to Surf down to Cianwood City and grab some
medicine. Alright, let's do that.

Jasmine unlocks the door and to the right is a Super Potion. Now take
the lift down and exit the Lighthouse.

Stop by the Pokemon Centre, heal up, gear up (buy some Super Repels,
don't want weak Pokemon popping up on us) and head west of Olivine City
towards Route 40.

NB: At the Pokemon Centre, there's this Beauty with a custom Pokeball
    Capsul near the PC and counter. Don't know if this will happen to
    you when she asks you to a battle to show off. But here are the

Route(s) 40 and 41 at sea is awfully big so...

Go all the way left (while on land) and surf into the water. If you
don't have a Water-type Pokemon, you can catch a Staryu at the
Olivine Harbour at night.

Break out an Electric-type here, it'll be useful. And oh, put on some
Super Repels now.

Surf a little down and you will bump into a Swimmer.

Alright, now here's the cutter. Route 41 can split into two directions:
West and South. We will take the West Route first. So head south-west
now.

 -----------------
| Route 41 - West |
 -----------------

You're on Route 41 now, keep heading south-west and into some rocks.
Swimming between those rocks is a Swimmer, challenge him to a battle.

out or shock 'em. It's up to you. Remoraid and Staryu are also weak

Keep surfing west and you'll notice some Whirlpools. Here are the
Whirl Islands - home to Lugia. However, the islands are split into
four entrances. It's a long wait for Lugia, but have some patience
and keep surfing west. Battle the female Swimmer on the way.

Follow the path and you'll see land: that is Cianwood City for ya.
You can disembark and heal up at the Pokemon Centre. It's a couple
of clicks to the South.

But don't fully settle in Cianwood City yet, we still got trainers to
straighten out there. If you didn't disembark, keep surfing all the way
down and then head east to battle another Swimmer.

Stop by the Pokemon Centre and heal up. Empty up a slot in your party
by the way. Exit the Pokemon Centre and enter the house next door to

Talk to the man behind the counter to obtain the SecretPotion. That's
one third of Cianwood done. What are other two thirds here? Don't
forget that we have a Gym Badge to reap and battle a person who we
aren't suspecting.

Exit the Cianwood Pharmacy and go the house to it's left. Talk to the
guy who looks like a Bird Keeper and say 'yes' to obtain a Lv. 20
Shuckle. Now exit his house.

Now go all the way north, north of town. You will Suicune there, but
save the game before you go near it. You will notice Suicune and

Drowzee is easy, do whatever you like to it. Eusine then brings out
a grenade: Electrode. Electrode hates Ground-type moves; and Haunter
is weak to Psychic mainly.

After that ridiculous ruckus, Eusine leaves and that's two-thirds of
Cianwood done. All that is left is to collect our
