    Default The New R/B/Y Rules, FAQ and Help Thread

    Welcome to the Red/Green/Blue/Yellow section! This sub-forum is just for the games that started it all. This thread contains the rules of the forum, as well as R/B/Y FAQ. If you have any general questions about the first generation games that aren't answered in the FAQ, please feel free to ask here!


    The R/B/Y Forum Rules


    1. Follow all SPPf Rules. Read and know the General SPPf Rules, because they all apply here.

    2. Search before posting. If you just have a question, use the Search bar near the top of the page to see if it has already been answered.

    3. Only talk about Green, Blue, Red and Yellow. This section is only for these first generation games. Don’t talk about other games or make recommendations that aren’t accessible in R/B/Y. This includes discussions about FireRed and LeafGreen.

    4. Do not discuss ROMS, emulators, cheat devices or codes. If you don’t have a legitimate copy of the games, or have a copy you want to hack, don’t bring it up.

    5. Do not bump threads. If the last post of a thread is from more than 30 days ago, do not respond to it. You may create a new version of the thread, but please leave dead threads alone.

    6. To get your in-game team rated, go here. Be sure to read the RMT Rules before posting.

    Q: How do you get Mew?
    Legally and officially, the only way to get Mew in the first generation was to receive one during an official Nintendo Event. This means that unless you or someone you know attended such an event, it is now impossible to legally obtain a Mew.

    Mew can, however, be obtained through a glitch in the game. Details will be in the post below.


    Q: What's that truck next to the S.S. Anne for?
    Nothing. It has no use whatsoever, and it cannot be moved.


    Q: Where are the rare or one-of-a-kind Pokémon?
    Hitmonlee / Hitmonchan - Challenge and defeat the Fighting Dojo leader and you'll get to choose between Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan.
    Lapras - After you defeat your rival in Silph Co., a terrified worker will give you Lapras. If you don't have the space for it, you can come back and get it later.
    Eevee - Obtained in Celadon City, through a rear entrance to Pokémon Mansion.
    Porygon - Buy it in Celadon Casino for 9999 coins (Red) or 6999 coins (Blue).
    Omanyte / Kabuto - At the end of Mount Moon, you get to choose between a Dome Fossil (Kabuto) or a Helix Fossil (Omanyte). Take your fossil to the Lab on Cinnabar Island later in the game to have it resurrected.
    Aerodactyl - Use Cut to get into the back entrance to the Museum in Pewter City. Talk to the scientists to get some Old Amber. Take this to the Lab on Cinnibar Island to get an Aerodactyl.
    Snorlax - One Snorlax can be found on Route 12 and another on Route 16. You'll need a Pokéflute to wake them up

    Q: How do I get a Surfing Pikachu?
    You can teach a Pikachu to Surf with the help of Pokémon Stadium. To do so, you must do the following:

    • The Pikachu must be on a 6-member team you use to beat the R2 Prime Cup at Master Ball level. It does not have to be from the Yellow game; Red/Blue Pikachus are fine.
    • All the Pokémon on your team must be chosen directly from your Game Boy cartridge (no registered teams, no rentals). They can be in your party or in any box in Bill's PC.
    • If you lose, you can re-enter, and you can use regular continues, but you cannot save the game and continue later. If you save and quit, you've screwed it all up.
    • Pikachu does not have to be used in every battle and does not actually have to take part in any battle, but must be on your 3-member team in the last round. It can sit on the bench or participate in Rounds 1-7, it doesn't matter.
    • Once the Champion has been decided (and it's not the CPU), your Pikachu will automatically learn to Surf if it knows less than 4 attacks. If it already knows 4 attacks, you can select which one it will forget (in hyper-cute fashion) to make room for Surf, or you can abandon learning the move.



    Q: How do I get the original starters?
    Charmander - Route 24 - Talk to a guy near the bridge (a non-trainer sort of guy)

    Bulbasaur - Cerulean City - Talk to a girl in the house next to the Pokécenter (make sure Pikachu is happy!)

    Squirtle - Vermilion City - Talk to Officer Jenny in the middle of the city


    Q: How do I make Pikachu happy?
    Use items, level Pikachu up and use it in battles against Gym Leaders. Placing it in the PC, letting it faint or trading it away will decrease Pikachu’s happiness.


    Q: What Pokémon can I get from in-game trades?
    Machoke (will evolve during trade): Route 5 Gatehouse - Trade for a Cubone
    Dugtrio: Route 11 Gatehouse - Trade for Lickitung
    Mr. Mime: Route 2 (via Diglett's cave) - Trade for Clefairy
    Parasect: Route 18 Gatehouse - Trade for Tanegla

    Muk: Cinnibar Island Lab - Trade for Kangaskhan
