I was just going to go with the easy route but then I decided to suck it up and just train myself a Mankey like everybody else. It wasn't easy, but that made all the difference. Haha, now that I think about it, that was one of the fews times I trained a Pokemon specifically to defeat the first Gym Leader of a region.

    Mankey. He later proved to be a beast in the Indigo Plateau.

    Not quite sure if I ever did THB. XD
    If I did I probably used a Nidoran.

    I think I levelled Pikachu up more than I really needed to, then spammed Slam and used healing items if his HP got low.

    I caught a Caterpie and Pidgey. I trained Caterpie to like lvl11 or 12 or whenever it learned confusion.

    Start off with pidgey (i got mine to like 14+) and just spam gust on geodude until one of you die. When Onix comes out (if you still have pidgey) Spam Sand attack until your dead then send out Butterfree and spam confusion. There.

    I think you're both ignoring the fact that all the Kanto starters were available in yellow with out Stadium or trades. They're given to you by different people after beating some of the first few gyms. I believe you obtain squirtle in Vermilion after beating LT. Surge...

    When I first played the game I barely understood a thing, because English isn't my main language and back then it sucked badly. I think I just got lucky that I had a Nidoran (male) in my team, and found out by surprise that Double Kick owns Rock type.^^

    re read the title the "first gym in yellow" you cant leave pewter without beating brock first so its impossible to go to cerulean city or vermillion city
    to get the original 3 starters

    Brock in Yellow Version was tough for me the first time through. I pretty much trained my Pokemon and caught a Mankey in Route 22 for assistance. Other than that, it was difficult with Pikachu.

    Like others said I did it various ways. Mankey/nidoran male or female/Butterfree. The butterfree using confusion was my preffered method since I love butterfree. It also helps on misty by putting that damned starmie to sleep.

    I always used Mankey in the first gym, because I found one on my first playthrough of Yellow before I even knew that Nidoran could be caught early in the game, and it never occurred to me to use a Butterfree.

    So that's why I always use Mankey for the first gym every time I play Yellow (not that I play that particular game anymore).

    I don't remember too clearly, but I think I caught a Pidgey and a Caterpie that I evolved into Butterfree, then trained them until they were lv. 11.

    As I suspect most others did I caught a Caterpie, evolved it, and made it learn confusion.

    I used both Mankey and Butterfree because I got the game when I was like 12 and knew what to do :-) It was still a real pain in the bottom though, such a hard first Gym for a kid's game.

    Recently, I actually got passed the first gym with just Pikachu and Pidgey (mostly just Pidgey)

    Tackle/Gust/Quick Attack (I think) FTW. 'Nuff said.
