The Pewter Gym skip glitch is a glitch that occurs in Pokémon Red and Blue. It allows the player to enter Route 3 without defeating Brock at Pewter Gym and earning the Boulder Badge. There are two ways to perform this glitch. Both of these variations were fixed in the Spanish (and possibly other European) versions of Red and Blue, as well as in Pokémon Yellow.

Performing the glitch

There are two different methods to perform the glitch, each with different side effects.

Walking directly in front of the Youngster

To perform the glitch, the player must first open the menu and move the cursor to "Save" without selecting it. Then the player must walk on the tile in front of the Youngster at the east exit of Pewter City and close the dialogs with the B-button (not the A-button), then immediately press Start and save the game (the cursor is frozen). The player must then reset the game. The conversation will happen again, and the player will then be forced to follow him. After that, the Youngster will be gone, and the player can walk across where the Youngster used to stand to enter Route 3; walking across any tile that was in the Youngster's line of sight will still force the player to walk back to the front of Pewter Gym.

Walking a tile away from the Youngster

To perform the glitch, the player must first open the menu and move the cursor to "Save" without selecting it. Then the player must walk past the Youngster at the east exit of Pewter City, leaving at least one empty tile between them, which will allow the player to walk two tiles past the Youngster. The player must then close the dialogs with the B-button (not the A-button), then immediately press Start and save the game (the cursor is frozen). The player must then reset the game. The conversation will happen again, but the player will not be forced to follow him. The player can continue walking along Route 3, but if the player walks into the Youngster's line of sight from the east, they will walk down infinitely.
