Gold/Silver/Crystal Walkthrough - Goldenrod City
A Huge City
Goldenrod City is the Celadon City of Johto. It is filled with many houses for you to explore, and there's a lot of things to do. The PokeMart there is like the Celadon City Department Store. In Crystal, The Goldenrod City Department Store has an all new rooftop marketplace that has bargain sales. There's a trainer called Camper Todd who appears right before you enter the city. Get his phone number, and he'll call you when there's a bargain sale. The image to your right is the rooftop marketplace.
In the basement of the department store, there are trainers who are training, and won't be battling you. You will find items, but are blocked by boxes. Ride the elevator to a different floor first, and then come down to the basement, and those boxes will disappear.
In the Japanese version of Crystal, the Pokemon Center is known as a PCC, or Pokemon Communications Center. It is a place that gives a lot of information on the Mobile GB Adaptor, get the GS Ball and Egg Ticket. Everything mentioned in this paragraph has been changed. Goldenrod City's Pokemon Communication Center has been downgraded to a normal Pokemon Center. Instead of an Egg Ticket, you'll simply get an egg with a Pokemon inside, and inside the Pokemon Center's a lady that you can give Eon Mails to receive Revives.
Well, before we worry about anything else, let's go straight to the gym. Always remember to save the game before a gym battle in case you lose (which will make you lose money).
A Strong Tank
All the trainers use normal Pokemon at the Goldenrod Gym. 3 Trainers using Jigglypuff will come before Whitney, the gym leader of this gym. So before you battle Whitney (which I have to say is a pain in the hip, you'll see why later), go to the Pokemon Center to wake up all your Pokemon, unless none of them has been put to sleep.
Well, here comes the time to battle Whitney. This battle, unlike any battle before, is super hard. Her Clefairy is easy to beat, but the Miltank, man, it is strong! The Miltank uses a powerful Rollout, and drinks a lot of milk to recover from injuries (see, milk is good for the body). A well experienced Geodude or Onix will come in handy at this point. What I would suggest is to skip the gym, go to Route 35 to get your own Rollout, and come back to the gym. Beat Whitney and her powerful Miltank, and get $2,000 plus TM 45 - Attract. You won't get the badge right away, because Whitney will start crying. Talk to the trainer below her, and then talk to Whitney again. She'll stop crying, and give you the Plain Badge.
There's a radio station in the city. Go in and talk to someone at the far end of the counter. She'll ask you five questions, answer them in the following order: yes, yes, no, yes, no. If you answer all five questions correct (which I'm sure you will, I mean, the answer's right there!), you'll recive a Radio Card for your PokeGear. Right to the left of the girl who gave you the quiz is someone who will check to see if your ID is the same as the Lucky Radio Station's.
In Crystal, Buena (new radio host) is located on the second floor. If you talk to her you'll receive a Blue Card. Every night (between 6 PM to 12 PM) she'll announce a password. If you go see her and tell her the password you'll receive points. Trade in these points for prizes (for example, three points can be traded in for a Rare Candy).

Walk around the city. Go into some houses, and soon, you'll find a bike shop. Just talk to the guy and he'll give you a free bike. Now you can ride your fast bike around, and it's much faster than walking on foot. You'll also find two buildings that have an underground tunnel that connects to each other. Go down there. You'll see a few trainers down there, and if you find an itemball, it'll contain a Coin Case. Now that you have a Coin Case, go to the Game Corner and start gambling!
On the fifth floor of the Goldenrod City Department Store, a guy is willing to trade his Machop for a Drowzee. Drowzee is a great Pokemon, so I wouldn't trade it away. But if you caught two, oh well, then trade the extra one away.
Also in the Underground Path has a Pokemon Salon. There, you can groom your Pokemon, which makes it happy.
There is a man with a hat who will change the name of your Pokemon for you in Goldenrod City. So, visit him at his house if you want to rename one of your Pokemon.
TM 21 or TM 27
In the Goldenrod City Department Store, you'll find a lady on the fifth floor. She will give you a TM on Sundays, depending on how your Pokemon likes you. If your Pokemon likes you, she'll give you TM 27 - Return. However, if your Pokemon doesn't like you, she'll give you TM 21 - Frustration.
A person called Move Tutor (rumored to be Bill's father) in the Crystal version can teach you very cool abilities, but for a very big price. You'll find him after you beat the Elite Four outside of Mt. Silver on Saturdays and Wednesdays. For a price of 4,000 coins, Move Tutor will teach either Thunderbolt, Flamethrower, or Ice Beam to one of your Pokemon. You can only learn one move per day. For more information, please go to the Move Tutor page.
If you go to the Goldenrod Game Corner, you can get: TM 14 - Blizzard, TM 38 - Fire Blast, and TM #25 - Thunder each for 5500 coins. TM 33 - Ice Punch, TM 41 - Thunder Punch, TM 48 - Fire Punch, can each be bought at the Goldenrod Department Store for $3,000. At the basement of the PokeMart, you will find TM 35 - Sleep Talk.
Go north now, and soon, you'll reach National Park.
