Congratulations, you are now the Indigo League Champion! Your new title grants you access to an area that was previously off-limits, due to the large number of powerful wild Pokémon, known as [[Cerulean Cave]]. It is here that the {{p|Mewtwo|violent specimen}} fled to after destroying the research facility it was being kept in on [[Cinnabar Island]].

As Champion, you can now access [[Cerulean Cave]], which was previously off-limits because of the powerful Pokémon inside. This is where {{p|Mewtwo}} fled after destroying the research facility on [[Cinnabar Island]].
 
This is a treacherous cave, with not only powerful Pokémon, but a wide variety of species as well. Stock up on {{DL|Poké Ball|Ultra Ball}}s and grab your {{DL|Fishing|Super Rod}}. You'll need a team that {{m|Surf|ride the waves}}, and withdraw that [[Master Ball]] from the [[PC]]. Mewtwo is one tough fighter, even harder to catch than the [[legendary birds]], so if you used it already, you're in for a long battle. When you're ready, head north to {{rt|24|Kanto}}, surf south on the water near the bridge, and enter the cave on the south shore.

This is a treacherous, sprawling cave, so make sure that you are well-prepared. Stock up on {{ball|Ultra}}s and bring the {{key|I|Super Rod}} along, too. Bring a Pokémon that can use {{m|Surf}}, and pack that {{ball|Master}} if you still have it. Mewtwo is one tough fighter, even harder to catch than the [[legendary birds]], so you're in for a long battle if you've used it already. Head north to {{rt|24|Kanto}} and surf south along the river to reach the cave.

This cave is packed with powerful Pokémon. Some are rare species otherwise only found in the {{safari|Kanto}}, while others are evolved forms of common Pokémon.

Not only is it the strongest Pokémon in the game, but when you find it, it's already at Lv 70. If you don't have the [[Master Ball]], this is going to be even tougher than catching the [[legendary birds]]. Like with any legendary, SAVE THE GAME before approaching it; with only one shot, you don't want to mess this up. Most damage you inflict will probably be healed right away, since it can use {{m|Recover}} up to 10 times. His only real weakness is {{type|Bug}} moves, so a {{m|Pin Missile}} attack from a high-level {{p|Beedrill}} or {{p|Jolteon}} could prove useful, though his {{m|Psychic}} move can decimate the health of any non-{{type|Psychic}}. You may want to dispatch the legendary birds against him, since he is the only thing stronger than the trio. If you do have the Master Ball, than all you have to do is throw it right away; don't even bother battling with it. A good strategy to catch it without the Master Ball is to use {{p|Articuno}}'s {{m|Ice Beam}}, {{p|Zapdos}}'s {{m|Thunder Wave}}, or {{p|Moltres}}'s {{m|Fire Spin}}, since each of these attacks can immobilize the creature temporarily. After all of that, make your way back to the exit (or use an [[Escape Rope]] to visit the most-recently used Pokémon Center).

Revision as of 19:48, 24 April 2013

As Champion, you can now access Cerulean Cave, which was previously off-limits because of the powerful Pokémon inside. This is where Mewtwo fled after destroying the research facility on Cinnabar Island.

Cerulean Cave

This is a treacherous, sprawling cave, so make sure that you are well-prepared. Stock up on Ultra Balls and bring the Super Rod along, too. Bring a Pokémon that can use Surf, and pack that Master Ball if you still have it. Mewtwo is one tough fighter, even harder to catch than the legendary birds, so you're in for a long battle if you've used it already. Head north to Route 24 and surf south along the river to reach the cave.


Cerulean Cave, 1F

2F

Head north for an Ultra Ball, then east for a Max Revive. Climb down the ladder to the northeast.

1F

Surf southeast to reach a Rare Candy. Go west from the ladder to collect another Ultra Ball, then climb the ladder to the southwest.

Go northwest to reach a fork in the road. Take the northern trail to reach a Full Restore, then follow the southern path to the ladder in the northeast.

Head south from the rock platform to pick up a Max Revive. Follow the trail westward to the next ladder.

2F

Grab the Rare Candy to the south, then climb down the ladder in the northwest.

Climb down the final ladder to reach the basement.

B1F

Follow the trail eastward to reach a Max Elixer, then head south. Use Surf to reach the platform in the southwest, and collect the Ultra Ball and the Max Revive. Head northeast and cross the platform to reach another Ultra Ball. Turn south and cross the last pool of water to reach the southeast platform, where Mewtwo awaits.

Mewtwo

Not only is it the strongest Pokémon in the game, but it's already at level 70! If you don't have the Master Ball, this battle will be even tougher than catching the legendary birds. Be sure to save the game before approaching it, as you have only one chance to catch it. Mewtwo can restore its health nearly a dozen times with Recover, and it is vulnerable only to Bug-type attacks. However, the three damage-dealing Bug moves are fairly weak. It may be better to use the legendary birds, as they are nearly Mewtwo's equals in terms of power. Inflicting status ailments can make the battle quite a bit easier, as a burn wears its health away, and being frozen prevents it from attacking or recovering.

With Cerulean Cave cleared, the storyline is now complete. Even though there are no more Gym Leaders to defeat, you still have a task to finish: completing the Pokédex for Professor Oak. If you manage to do it, you can show it to the Game Freak employees in Celadon for your reward.
