This is the Bulbapedia walkthrough for Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!.
These pages follow the remade Nintendo Switch iteration, not Pokémon Yellow. The guide for that game can be found here.

Cerulean City

Cerulean City

Cerulean City is a beautiful city with flowing water and blooming flowers. It is located between Route 4, Route 24, Route 9, and Route 5.

Pokémon Center

Move Tutor

Visit the Pokémon Center and speak to the Tamer near the counter. He happens to be a Move Tutor and offers to teach exclusive moves to your partner Pokémon.

Time for a Trade

The girl sitting on the sofa to the left of the counter is hoping to trade Pokémon. She is hoping to get a Rattata and is willing to part with her Alolan Rattata in exchange. Hers is a Dark/Normal Pokémon, so it takes extra damage from Fighting-type attacks but has an advantage against Psychic-type Pokémon. Dark-type Pokémon are few and far between in the Kanto region, so Alolan Rattata can make a useful addition to your team. This trade may be conducted multiple times.

A Rare Addition

Visit the house next to the Pokémon Center to find a girl who cares for injured and abandoned Pokémon. She has nursed a Bulbasaur back to health, but now it needs a caring Trainer to raise it properly. If you have caught at least 30 Pokémon, she asks if you would take care of the young Pokémon.

Gym Badge Trivia

The northwest house belongs to a man who gives a bit of trivia for each Badge. According to him, Celadon Gym's Rainbow Badge is the most expensive to make, and Cinnabar Gym's Volcano Badge is made from hardened lava. Most Trainers aren't sure if Saffron Gym's Marsh Badge is real gold or not!

Bike Shop

The house in the southwest part of town belongs to a man known as the Bike Maniac. He has collected several different kinds, including models like the Acro Bike and Mach Bike. Examine each one, including the bike hanging on the wall, and listen to his long-winded description of each to receive a set of 5 Heart Scales.

Breaking, Entering

The house in the northeast is currently blocked off by Officer Jenny. It seems that Team Rocket has broken into the home and stolen a valuable item from its residents. Nothing can be done to remedy this at the moment, so set your sights on the Gym instead.

Cerulean Gym

Cerulean City Pokémon Gym
Leader: Misty

The Tomboyish Mermaid

The Cerulean Gym specializes in Water-type Pokémon. Water-type moves are super effective against Fire-, Ground-, and Rock-type Pokémon, while Water-type Pokémon are weak to Electric- and Grass-type moves. When entering the Gym, the guide warns that Misty is a powerful Trainer and that all challengers must show a Pokémon of at least level 15 to proceed. With a Pikachu and Bulbasaur in tow, beating the Cerulean Gym should be an easy task. Other Grass Pokémon—Oddish and Bellsprout—can be found on the nearby Route 24, as well. Be sure to visit the Move Tutor in the Pokémon Center, as Pikachu's Zippy Zap and Eevee's Buzzy Buzz attacks will be a big help.

Misty leads with her Psyduck. Neither of its moves are very strong, but all of the available Grass Pokémon up to this point have also been part-Poison, leaving them vulnerable to Psychic attacks like Confusion. Her Starmie is a bigger threat. Its high Special Attack lets it deal a good bit of damage with Swift. Not only can Scald sometimes cause a Burn, but as it matches Starmie's type, it also receives a Same-type attack bonus. Use your partner Pokémon's new Electric attack to take it down before it can cause too much trouble.

Cascade Badge

After the battle, Misty awards you the Cascade Badge. Having two Badges ensures obedience from all Pokémon up to level 30. She also gives you TM29 (Scald) as a prize.

Rival Battle 3

When you head toward Route 24, Trace comes running toward you from the bridge. He has seen something so bewildering that all he can do is to draw you into battle. He leads with his Pidgey, so start off with Electric- and Rock-type attacks. His Oddish can Poison its target with a toxic powder, so use Flying attacks to knock it out quickly. Aside from having grown a few levels, his Eevee is much the same as it was in the previous battle.

Afterward, your friend manages to calm himself down and tells you of a house up ahead where a famous Pokémon fanatic is said to live. He paid a visit hoping to see some rare Pokémon, but instead of finding the homeowner, he found a talking Pokémon instead! He tries to convince you to stay away before running off.

Route 24

Route 24

Route 24 stretches north from Cerulean City to Route 25. Most of the area is occupied by a river and the Nugget Bridge that crosses it.

Nugget Bridge

There are five Trainers to be fought on the famous Nugget Bridge. When all five are defeated, a man at the bridge's north end will reward you with a Nugget, a bit of gold that can be sold for a high price. The man then reveals himself as a Team Rocket Grunt and tries to persuade you to join the group, and draws you into battle when you refuse.

A Rare Addition

Speak to the boy on the northwest hill. He has been thinking that he should release his Charmander because he is no good at raising Pokémon. If you have caught at least 50 Pokémon, he decides to give Charmander to you, instead.

Route 25

Route 25

Route 25 leads eastward from Route 24. The path winds its way through a forest before it ends overlooking the sea. The Sea Cottage is located on the east side.

Sea Cottage

An Unfortunate Turn

The Sea Cottage belongs to Bill, a famous Pokémon researcher. When you step inside, it seems like Bill must be away, until your partner Pokémon notices a Nidorino in the corner. But it's not just any Nidorino. Bill's latest experiment has gone awry and combined his DNA with that of a Pokémon! He needs your help, so once he has stepped into the teleporter, inspect his PC to run his Cell Separation System to undo the change and return him to normal. As a token of gratitude, he gives you a pair of S.S. Tickets, which grant access to the luxury cruise ship currently docked in Vermilion City to the south.

Bill's Legendary Research

Before leaving the cape, you can exit and re-enter the cottage and inspect Bill's PC to read his reports on the locations of the legendary birds. This adds three new pages to your Pokédex.

Cerulean City

Justice, Served

Once you return to Cerulean City, you find a Squirtle running off with one of Officer Jenny's Poké Balls, with the officer reluctantly abandoning her post to chase it down. Step inside to find obvious signs of a break-in, like muddy footprints and broken furniture. Your partner Pokémon even points out a large hole in the wall! Walk out through the gap to find and confront the thief.

When he is defeated, the Team Rocket Grunt gives up the stolen TM10 (Dig) before fleeing the scene. If you try to return the item to its owner, the man allows you to keep it as thanks for your effort. He has decided to train his Diglett so that it learns the move on its own.

Route 5

Route 5

Route 5 is a scenic road that runs downhill from Cerulean City to Saffron City. The first of the region's two Underground Paths begins here and runs southward underneath Saffron City to re-emerge on Route 6.

Pokémon Day Care

The house on the hill is the Pokémon Day Care. The elderly woman inside will raise one Pokémon at a time while you are away. A Pokémon left here will gain one experience point for every step taken. If you bought the Magikarp near Mt. Moon, this is a good way to raise it. The downside is that she will make every decision, so she may end up deleting a move you would like to keep. She charges $100, plus another $100 for every new level, to return a Pokémon.

Mr. Hyper

An elderly man known as Mr. Hyper can be found here, as well. He says that if you ever earn the Champion title, be sure to come back and visit him.

Meet Up with Trace

Trace is waiting for you outside the Underground Path building. As it is impossible to reach Saffron City at the moment, he suggests following the tunnel to Route 6 instead. He notices something sparkly in your hair, and gives you the Revive he just found before giving out a couple more to help with the next Gym. Your friend notices the two S.S. Tickets you have, and he happily accepts the extra ticket before entering the tunnel.

Underground Path

Many people drop items along the underground passage. Pay attention to your partner Pokémon, as it has a knack for noticing hidden items and will wag its tail faster as you approach them.
