Viridian City

Viridian City

Viridian City is a small city, and the first one you reach with a Pokémon Gym. However, the mysterious Gym Leader is out of town, and the Gym has been closed indefinitely.

Pokémon Center

The first building you'll reach is the Pokémon Center. This Pokémon hospital will heal your team to full health and normal status, and Trainers are free to use the PC in the corner. In addition to accessing your item storage, these PCs can also access your Pokémon storage. Since you can only carry six with you at once, any others are immediately transferred to storage upon capture. It is typically a good idea to heal up and save your progress whenever you enter a Pokémon Center.

Poké Mart

Behind the Pokémon Center is the local Poké Mart. These stores offer a variety of Poké Balls, Potions, and other items. When you step inside, the cashier asks you to deliver a parcel to Professor Oak. The cashier will not sell anything until the delivery is made.

Pokémon Academy

This school teaches young Pokémon Trainers about the basics of battle. If you inspect the blackboard in the front of the room, you can learn about the five status ailments that can affect a Pokémon.

Ailment Effect(s)
BRN Burn Attack drops to 50%, inflicts damage equal to 1/16 of maximum HP every turn
FRZ Freeze Cannot move until thawed
PAR Paralysis Speed drops to 25%, cannot attack 1/4 of the time
PSN Poison Inflicts damage equal to 1/16 of maximum HP every turn, loses 1 HP for every four steps taken outside of battle
SLP Sleep Cannot move for one to seven turns

Back to Pallet Town

The Kanto region, as seen with the Town Map

Oak's Lab

When you deliver the parcel to the professor, his grandson runs in and starts yelling about how much his Pokémon has grown. Oak gives you both a Pokédex, a high-tech Pokémon encyclopedia. This little machine will record all available data on the Pokémon you encounter, and will be complete when you catch a member of every species. Visit your rival's sister Daisy before leaving town to get a Town Map.

Viridian City

The old man that had blocked your way northward has had his coffee now. When you pass him, he tries to show you how to catch a Pokémon. It doesn't work though, and he runs off to buy more Poké Balls. Before heading north, detour to Route 22 in order to battle your rival and catch some new Pokémon.

Route 22

Route 22 is a short route that runs west of Viridian. The path is a dead-end right now, but you can battle your rival and hunt for new Pokémon here.

Keep in mind that your rival's team later in the game is dependent upon the outcome of this battle along with the previous one. If you want your rival's Eevee to evolve into an Electric type, you had to have won the first battle and win this battle as well. If you want your rival's Eevee to evolve into a Water type, you had to have lost the first battle. If you want your rival's Eevee to evolve into a Fire type, you had to win the first battle and either lose or skip this battle.

Route 2 (south)

Route 2

Route 2 links Viridian City to Pewter City in the north. Much of the area is occupied by Viridian Forest, a large maze of trees. The east side of the route is inaccessible without HM01 (Cut).

Viridian Forest

Viridian Forest

Viridian Forest is a natural maze, and is home to bug Pokémon like Caterpie and bird Pokémon like Pidgey. Follow the path through the trees to re-emerge on Route 2, just south of Pewter City.

Start by finding the hidden antidote on the western side of the lone tree at the entrance. Head west to a small patch of grass to fight a Lass. Continue along the path to the north, then turn west to find a Poké Ball in the dead-end. Follow the path around to return to the entrance, and this time go east.

Continue to the north to fight a Bug Catcher. Walk straight ahead to find another Bug Catcher, as well as a Potion. Turn to the west, then head south. Follow the path as it winds around until you come to a dead-end with a Potion. Go north to find a hidden Potion in front of the final Bug Catcher. The exit is just a little further north.
