This is the Bulbapedia walkthrough for Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. This walkthrough follows the remade Nintendo DS version, not Pokémon Gold and Silver.
The guide for those can be found here.

Route 11

Route 11

Route 11 links Route 12 to Vermilion City. There are only a few Trainers here, but it does lead back to the Snorlax just outside the city. To wake it up, tune the Pokégear's radio to the Poké Flute Channel and examine snoozing creature to place the radio near it. Annoyed, it attacks the nearest living thing. After the battle, Diglett's Cave is no longer blocked, leaving you free to continue through the tunnel.

Diglett's Cave

Diglett's Cave

With the Fuchsia beach blocked off, the only other way to reach western Kanto is through Diglett's Cave, a long tunnel that links Route 11 with Route 2 in the northwest.

Route 2

Route 2

Route 2 connects Viridian City to the south and Pewter City to the north. The western side of the route is occupied by the sprawling Viridian Forest.

Viridian Forest

Pewter City

While it is not necessary to hike through the forest, there are several valuable items here to make it a worthwhile trip. In addition, this is the only location where wild Pikachu can be found.

Pewter City

Pewter City

Pewter City is home to two major attractions—the Pewter Museum of Science and the Pewter Gym. The museum features several interesting exhibits, and one of its scientists has been researching fossil revitalization. Meanwhile, the simply-designed Pewter Gym accepts all challengers.

Time for a Trade

A man inside the Pokémon Center would like to trade. He is looking for a Haunter, and is willing to trade his Xatu for it.

Pewter Museum of Science

The Museum's interior

The Pewter Museum has several unique exhibits on display, though most are on loan to other museums, so admission is currently free. The scientist in the smaller room has been studying fossil revitalization, and can resurrect ancient Pokémon from these treasures. Certain fossil varieties can be found in the Ruins of Alph, while other relics can be found in the newly-excavated Cliff Cave.

Pewter Gym

Pewter Gym

Pewter City Pokémon Gym
Leader: Brock

The Rock Solid Pokémon Trainer

The Pewter Gym specializes in Rock-type Pokémon. Grass-type attacks—like the Giga Drain TM move from Celadon Gym—will inflict heavy damage against all seven Pokémon in the building. In addition, Brock's Graveler, Rhyhorn, and Onix are weak against Water moves, while his Omastar and Kabutops are vulnerable to Electric attacks. Look out for Earthquake and Sandstorm, which takes its toll on all but Rock, Ground, and Steel Pokémon.

The Boulder Badge

Defeated, Brock awards you the Boulder Badge. He also hands out TM80 (Rock Slide) as a prize.

The Second Feather

There is an old man on a hill on the east side of town. Speak to him to receive either the Silver WingHG or the Rainbow WingSS, a feather he found while training in Johto. This allows you to track down the other legendary bird, either Lugia in the Whirl IslandsHG or Ho-Oh atop the Bell TowerSS.
