R/B/Y Walkthrough - Pallet Town/Route 1
Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow WalkthroughStarting Your Adventure
You turn on your game. You watch the wonderful intro, and you press the "A" button quite a few times. Then, Professor Oak starts to tell you about Pokemon. After that, you choose your name. Prof. Oak tells you that his grandson has been rivals with you since you were a baby, and then you choose his name. After a while, you're in your large room. Before you leave, go to your PC and get a free Potion.
Go downstairs, and you'll find your mom sitting. She's helpful for one thing: healing your injured Pokemon.
After going out of your house, go north to the grassy area. Prof. Oak will stop you, and take you back to his lab. In Yellow, he'll find a Pikachu, and catch it.
Choose Your Buddy
In his lab, Professor Oak will give a long and boring speech, and will let you choose a Pokemon. Here is a list of the starters:
#001: BULBASAUR (Grass)|
Bulbasaur is the easiest Pokemon to start out with. Why? Because the first gym uses rock Pokemon, which is weak against grass. The second gym uses water Pokemon, also weak against Bulbasaur. The third gym's electric Pokemon aren't strong against grass-types.
#004: CHARMANDER (Fire)|
Charmander is the Pokemon I chose, and is the hardest to start out with in Red/Blue. The first two gyms are strong against Charmander, but it can help out greatly in the Viridian Forest.
#007: SQUIRTLE (Water)|
The experience level for Squirtle is MEDIUM. It may be small, but one day, it'll evolve into a big and powerful Blastoise.
#025: PIKACHU (Electric)|
Pikachu is your starter for the Yellow version. It is super hard to start of with Pikachu, since the first gym's rock Pokemon are resistant to electric attacks.
In Red/Blue, your rival (we'll call him Gary from now on) will pick a Pokemon that has an advantage over your Pokemon (cheater), and will battle you. In Yellow, you are supposed to get an Eevee. Unfortunately, Gary takes your Eevee from the table, and you're left with Pikachu. After your battle, your Pokemon should have gained a level. Now, go out of the house and start your adventure!
In Route 1, you'll encounter a whole bunch of Rattata and Pidgey, all ranging from level 2 to 5. Now's the time to train your Pokemon well to gain levels. Don't rush to the next city. Keep on battling until your Pokemon reaches level 8 or 9, and then run for Viridian City. Before you run too quick though, you should talk to the first person you meet on this route. He is advertising for the PokeMart, and will give you a sample Potion.
