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.

Ecruteak City

Ecruteak City

Welcome to Ecruteak, a historical city where the past meets the present. The city is shrouded in mystery, as all but one of the region's legendary Pokémon have ties to the area. Unique landmarks include the Ecruteak Gym, Kimono Dance Theater, and the twin towers; the Burned Tower in the west, and the Bell Tower in the east.

Meet Bill

Stop by the Pokémon Center to meet Bill, the inventor of the PC Storage System. He talks about improving the Pokémon trading and storage systems with his friends, especially Lanette of the Hoenn region. From this point on, Wi-Fi capabilities are now enabled for all Pokémon Centers. He then leaves for his home in Goldenrod, where you can visit him to receive an Eevee. Eevee is a rare Pokémon that can evolve into one of seven variations.

Treasure Hunting

Visit the house next to the Gym, and speak to the man inside. He gives you the Dowsing MCHN, a handy tool that reacts to hidden items lying nearby.

Kimono Dance Theater

As you enter the building, one of the Kimono Girls is onstage, yelling at the Rocket Grunt for harassing her. Beat the troublemaker and he runs off, and an old man from the audience rewards you with HM03 (Surf) as you exit the stage.

Burned Tower

The charred, crumbling ruins of the Burned Tower can be found in the city's northwest district. Formerly known as the Brass Tower, it was once as majestic as the Bell Tower to the east. Built 700 years ago, it was said to be the roost of a silver-colored Pokémon. But 150 years ago, the tower was struck by a lightning bolt that ignited a fire that raged for three days. The silver Pokémon and the rainbow-hued Pokémon that roosted on the Bell Tower escaped to the skies unharmed, and a sudden downpour quenched the fire. The silver Pokémon flew off, while the rainbow Pokémon resurrected three nameless Pokémon that perished in the blaze before flying off as well.


There are two people near the entrance who are investigating the ruins. One is Morty, the Ecruteak Gym Leader, and the other is Eusine, Morty's friend and researcher focusing on the legendary beasts. Both are well-versed in the local legends, and Eusine has even dedicated his life to tracking and meeting Suicune. He may be close to his goal, as three regal-looking Pokémon can be seen through the charred hole in the floor, standing motionless on the lower level. Once the two have explained the legend of the tower, head north to meet Silver.

The legendary beasts awaken with a roar when you approach them. Raikou and Entei leap quickly around the room before running off, and Suicune, pausing for a moment to examine you, follows the others a moment later. Eusine hurries down the ladder and marvels at seeing Suicune, as he has been pursuing it for nearly ten years. As the beasts are now mobile, it is possible to track Raikou and Entei with the Pokégear's Map function.

Bell Tower

The Bell Tower is a sacred place, and is off-limits to all but a few people. Ecruteak's Fog Badge grants access to the building, but no higher than the first floor. A pair of special items are required to reach the rest of the tower.

Leader: Morty

The Mystic Seer of the Future

The Ecruteak Gym specializes in Ghost-type Pokémon. These spirits take serious damage from Ghost- and Dark-type attacks, and are usually unaffected by Normal- and Fighting-type attacks. However, a Pokémon with Foresight can disable these immunities. In addition, Pokémon with the Scrappy ability—like Miltank—can hit these ghosts with Normal attacks. Three of Morty's Pokémon know Mean Look, which prevents the target from switching; however, this can still be achieved through the effect of U-turn. His Gastly and two Haunter can drain the target's health every turn with Curse, but this requires paying half of their maximum HP. It is recommended to bring a few Full Heals or Awakenings in order to disrupt his Haunter's Hypnosis-and-Dream Eater/Nightmare combo.

The Fog Badge

Defeated, Morty awards you the Fog Badge, which ensures obedience from all Pokémon up to level 50, and enables the use of Surf in the field. He also hands over TM30 (Shadow Ball) as a prize.

Route 38

Route 38

Route 38 is a tree-lined path that connects Ecruteak City to Route 39 in the west, near MooMoo Farm.

Route 39

Route 39

Route 39 is a quiet, pastoral road that links Route 38 to Olivine City in the south. The MooMoo Farm is located in the northwest part of the route.

Meet Baoba

When you approach the farm, you meet an old man named Baoba. He is the warden of the newly-constructed Safari Zone near Cianwood City, across the sea to the southwest. Swap phone numbers with him to receive a call when the park is up and running.

MooMoo Farm

The MooMoo Farm depends on its herd of Miltank to produce milk, but one of these cows has gotten sick. In order for it to recover, it must be fed a total of seven Oran Berries. Once its condition improves, speak to the two girls to receive a Seal Case and three sets of Seals as a reward. In addition, visit the farmer's wife to receive TM83 (Natural Gift). With things back to normal, the farmer begins offering Moomoo Milk, which restores 100 HP, for PokémonDollar.png500 per serving. They can also be purchased by the dozen.
