This is the Bulbapedia walkthrough for Pokémon Gold and Silver. This walkthrough follows the original Game Boy Color version, not Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.
The guide for those can be found here.

Route 11

There is nothing on Route 11 except a handful of Trainers and a berry tree. However, it does get you where you want to go - the sleeping Snorlax on Vermilion's eastern border. To wake it up, tune the PokéGear's radio to the Poké Flute channel (20.0), and press the B Button. Exit the menu, and check on Snorlax to place the radio near the snoozing creature. It wakes up annoyed, and attacks the closest living thing. After the battle, enter Diglett's Cave.

Diglett's Cave

Diglett's Cave

Diglett's Cave is a short tunnel that connects the eastern border of Vermilion with Route 2 in the west. There is nothing of major interest here, though this is the only location to find wild Diglett and Dugtrio. Trek through the tunnel, and you'll emerge just south of Pewter City.

Route 2

Emerging from Diglett's Cave, pick up the Carbos to the northeast. Visit the man in the house south of here to obtain a Nugget. Pass through the guardhouse to the route's southernmost extent to find an Elixer. Cut through the line of trees to access the route's west side. Battle the two Bug Catchers, and wander into the remains of Viridian Forest. Grab the items along the way, battle the third Bug Catcher, and go north to enter Pewter City.

Pewter City

Pewter City

A man in the Poké Center is willing to trade his Rapidash for your Gloom. The Pewter Museum of Science is closed for renovations, which means that the Pewter Gym is the only other tourist attraction currently operating.

Brock still commands the Pewter Gym, meaning that the place still specializes in the Template:Type2. Template:Type2s will have the advantage over all five of his Pokémon, while Template:Type2s will only be effective against his Graveler, Rhyhorn, and Onix. Moves like Graveler's Earthquake, Rhyhorn's Horn Drill, and (for Template:Type2s) Kabutops' Giga Drain are the biggest threats, but by now your team should be higher-leveled than Brock's team anyway.

After his defeat, Brock hands you the Boulder Badge, which slightly raises your team's attack power.

After the Gym battle

Stop by the Poké Center and heal your team if needed, and head east for Route 3. Near the Pewter city limits, you'll see an old man strolling around. Talk to him, and he'll give you an item he found while training in Johto, the Silver Wing (Gold) / Rainbow Wing (Silver). With this, Gold players can now encounter Lugia in the Whirl Islands, and Silver players can encounter Ho-Oh on the roof of the Tin Tower.

Go east to Route 3.
