This is the Red/Blue version of Pokemon. There are other versions, too. 
The story and characters are the same for all versions. The differences
between the versions are the type and probability of Pokemon appearing.

To complete your collection, you will need to trade with a friend who has
another version.

STORY
You are an 11-year old boy living in Pallet Town with your mother. Your 
rival lives next door to you. You and your rival used to play nicely 
together when you were little, but lately, he has become mean. He sees 
you as his rival because you are the same age and height. You also get 
similar grades in school. When you hear that Professer Oak is learning 
about Pokemon, you get excited because you are a curious boy. You walk
outside of Pallet Town in search of Pokemon and you hear a voice.

"Hey! Don't go into the grass!" It was Professor Oak. "There are wild Pokemon
living in the grass," he said. "They can be very
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Page 3

dangerous. If you have trained Pokemon, you can let them fight against 
wild ones."

Professor Oak took you back to his lab where your rival was waiting.
Professor Oak invited him because he is Professor Oak's grandson. 
Professor Oak spoke, "There are three Pokemon here, so take the one you 
like! Now that you have a Pokemon, the rest is up to you..."

WORLD MAP
There are many ways to travel from place to place. Use this map to help 
you find where you're going.
[This map is exactly the same as the one that you can get off of your rival's
sister. In other words, I'm not going to draw it.]
----------------------------------------------------------------
Page 6

THE WORLD OF POKEMON
I am Professor Oak. The document you are reading is the result of many 
years of studying Pokemon. I strongly suggest that you read this document 
so you may become a Pokemon Master.

WHAT ARE POKEMON?
In this world there are more than 100 Pokemon. They gain experience 
and become more powerful as they fight against each other. Pokemon 
that only have simple attack techniques such as TACKLE or TAIL WHIP 
will learn more powerful techniques like BITE or WATER GUN. Some 
Pokemon even evolve and change the way they look.

Professor Oak
He is the leading expert on Pokemon. Listen to his wise advice. [Like 'Ooh, 
you got my package!]
----------------------------------------------------------------
Page 7

DEFEAT THE 8 POKEMON LEADERS
In the world of Pokemon, there are many Pokemon Trainers who raise 
Pokemon for fighting. Only 8 of these trainers are considered to be 
Pokemon Leaders. You can find these leaders hanging out at local 
gyms, training their Pokemon to become stronger.
These leaders are waiting for anyone who wants to challenge them. In order 
to complete your Pokedex, you must fight these leaders.

COMPLETE YOUR POKEDEX
Your goal is to capture one of every Pokemon in the world to become a 
true Pokemon Master.
To do this, you must record all of your findings in your electronic
encyclopaedia called a Pokedex. All of the Pokemon data you find will be
automatically recorded in your Pokedex. To catch Pokemon, you will need Poke
Balls which you may purchase from Poke Marts in most towns and cities. 
You will also need to trade Pokemon with friends who have a different 
version in order to complete your Pokedex.

LET'S BEGIN

PALLET TOWN
This is where you begin your quest to become a Pokemon Master. Explore 
the town before heading North. After leaving your house, go visit your 
rival and Professor Oak.

* Talk to everyone you see. People will help you along the way, so don't 
miss anything.

1. Your Home
This is where you live. You and your rival grew up playing together and 
had a great friendship until he became competitive and mean.

2. Your Rival's Home
This is where your rival lives. The two of you were great friends not too 
long ago. Maybe there's a chance that the two of you can work things out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Page 15

3. Professor Oak's Lab
You need to find Professor Oak, but he's not in the town. As you try to leave
the town, Professor Oak will stop you "Hey! Wait! Don't go out!" You will soon
find yourself standing in Professor Oak's lab.

SELECT YOUR POKEMON
Professor Oak will let you choose 1 of three Pokemon. Choose wisely 
because the Pokemon you select will determine how difficult the game 
is. Read OAK'S MEMO below for a tip.

OAK'S MEMO
First-time players should choose Bulbasaur because it is a grass 
Pokemon. The first boss uses Rock Pokemon. Grass Pokemon are more
effective when attacking Rock Pokemon.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Page 16

ROUTE #1
DANGER! WILD POKEMON
You will travel north into the grassy area. There, you will run into many 
Wild Pokemon.

Walk around in the grassy areas and you will meet Pokemon.

RATTATA
Bites anything when it attacks. Small and very quick, it is a common 
sight in many places.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Page 17

YOUR FIRST BATTLE
When you encounter a Wild Pokemon, a sequence of events will take place. 
The information on this page will teach you the basic fighting technique.

First, the Wild Pokemon will appear on the screen.

Next, you will exchange attacks with the Wild Pokemon.

Finally, if your Pokemon wins, it will receive experience points.

PIDGEY
A common sight in forests and woods. It flaps its wings at ground level 
to kick up blinding sand.

OAK'S MEMO
At this point you will not be able to capture a Wild Pokemon. You can 
only fight for experience points. When you get to Viridian City, you 
may purchase Poke Balls at the shop.
-------------------------------------------------------------

ROUTE #2
Route #2 is the area between Viridian City and Pewter City. Be careful, this
road travels through the Viridian Forest which has stronger Pokemon lurking
about. Make sure you've built your Pokemon levels up before traveling here.

* Give the parcel to Professor Oak and he will give you a Pokedex in return.

* You can see items on the other side of these trees. How do you get them?
You'll have to come back later.

CATERPIE
Its short feet are tipped with suction pads that enable it to tirelessly 
climb slopes and walls.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Page 21

USE THE POKE BALL
You will need to use Poke Balls to capture Wild Pokemon. It will work best if
you get its energy down as far as possible, but not all the way. If you can, use
a Pokemon who has the ability to put the Wild Pokemon to sleep. Once its
sleeping, throw a Poke Ball to capture it.

WEEDLE
Often found in forests eating leaves. It has a sharp venomous stinger on its
head.

OAK'S MEMO
As you play, the Wild Pokemon you meet will get stronger. You may need 
to throw more than one Poke Ball to capture them.
------------------------------------------------------------
Page 22

VIRIDIAN FOREST
The Viridian Forest is full of danger as Wild Pokemon lurk in the grassy 
areas. You will also find plenty of other Pokemon Trainers here. This is 
a great area to practice your fighting skills.

1. Poke Ball
2. Antidote
3. Potion

KAKUNA
Almost incapable of moving, this Pokemon can only harden its shell to 
protect itself from predators.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Page 23

Pokemon Trainer
When you battle other Pokemon Trainers, you will earn money and 
your Pokemon will gain experience points. A Pokemon Trainer may have 
1 to 6 trained Pokemon, so it's a good idea for you to have 6. You will not 
be able to capture Pokemon from other Pokemon Trainers.

METAPOD
This Pokemon is vunerable to attack while its shell is soft, exposing its 
weak and tender body.

PIKACHU
When several of these Pokemon gather, their electricity could build and 
cause lightning storms.

OAK'S MEMO
If you have collected 6 Pokemon, raise their levels evenly. Let each of 
your Pokemon have a turn in battle. Also, you may want to collect 6 
different types of Pokemon.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Page 24

PEWTER CITY

ROUTE #3
You will not be able to travel on Route #3 until you have defeated Brock in
Pewter Gym.

4. Pewter Gym
You will have to fight against another trainer in this gym before you fight
Brock. It will be helpful if you bring some potions.

VS. 1st LEADER/BROCK
Brock uses Rock-type Pokemon. You will have an easier time defeating 
him with Grass or Water-type Pokemon.

* Defeat Brock to get the Boulder Badge.

BROCK'S POKEMON
GEODUDE - LV 12
ONIX - LV 14

OAK'S MEMO
Charmander needs a higher level against Brock's Pokemon because 
Fire-type don't match up well against Rock-type Pokemon.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Page 26

THE ADVENTURE GOES ON...
There is so much more than what has been described in the previous 
pages. You must talk to all of the people that you find throughout your 
quest to become the world's greatest Pokemon Trainer.

Game Corner
They say that the Team Rocket has something to do with this gaming 
area. Check it out.

Safari Zone
This is a great place to capture Pokemon. You definitely get what you pay for.

Fishing
There are three different rods that allow you to catch many different 
water Pokemon. Fish everywhere.

its level while you're away.

HINTS

OAK'S MEMO
You will find many interesting things during your quest. On the next couple 
of pages. I have recorded some things I believe will make your quest more
enjoyable.

How to Use Pokemon Box
There are twelve boxes in which you may store Pokemon. Newly 
captured Pokemon will be stored in the currently selected box. When a 
box is full, you must change boxes.

If Your Pokemon Box is Full
If your Pokemon Box is full, you will not be able to keep Pokemon that 
you capture. You need to access the computer in a Pokemon Centre and 
change to a box that is not full.

Hidden Machine
Sometimes you will get a Hidden Machine instead of a Technical Machine. 
It works similar to a Technical Machine but you can use a Hidden Machine 
as may times as you want. Also, the skills learnt from this machine can 
be used not only during the battle but while moving in the world. For 
instance, you can CUT the tree blocking the road by using an ability 
called CUT or swim in the water by using an ability called SURF. 
[Not explained well, is it? Hidden Machines and Tech. Machines are new, 
better moves that your Pokemon can learn. TMs can only be used on 
one Pokemon once, but HMs can be used multiple times on Pokemon. 
In addition, you can use HMs when moving around the world. But, HMs 
can only be used on the world once you get the badge that lets you. 
An example of this is that you can't use CUT until Misty gives you the 
Cascade Badge. Hope this helps.]
--------------------------------------------------------------
Page 29

How to Arrange Items
First open ITEM on the Menu screen. Move the cursor (using the +Control 
Pad) to the item you want to move, then press SELECT. Next move the 
cursor to where you want the item to moved using the +Control Pad, 
and press SELECT.

** You can arrange the abilities during the fight the same way.

Change Pokemon Names
There is only one place where you may change the nicknames of your 
Pokemon. When you find this place, be sure to remember where it is. 
[Trust me, it's not hard to find. You can't change nicknames of Pokemon 
that you got in a trade, no matter how sad they are.]

Stop Evolution!
When your Pokemon starts to evolve, you may stop the process. Press 
the B Button when the screen shows the Pokemon changing form, like 
in the screen shot to the right.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Page 30

COLLECT POKEMON

OAK'S MEMO
You may collect Pokemon in many different ways. Please study these pages 
to learn how you can collect Pokemon.

GET 1: WILD POKEMON
Many of the Pokemon you collect will be ones that you find in the wild. 
Travel through grass, in caves or in water, etc. to find Wild Pokemon 
that you can collect.

GET 2: EVENT
You can collect some Pokemon through special events; win one as a prize 
in the Game Corner; get one by helping a stranger; or capture them at 
the Safari Zone.

GET 3: LINK
In a Pokemon Centre, you can link your Game Boy system to a friend's 
Game Boy system and trade Pokemon between the 2 Game Paks. Some 
Pokemon will evolve when you trade them. Also, some Pokemon won't 
appear in your version of the game, so you must trade with a friend who 
has a different version in order to complete your collection.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Page 31

RARE POKEMON
In each game there is a Pokemon that appears only once. If you do not 
capture it the first time, you will not have the chance to capture it again.

EVOLUTION POKEMON
Many Pokemon evolve when their experience level increases. In the 
screen shots below, we see Weedle evolving into Kakuna. Train all 
your Pokemon to higer levels and discover the ones that evolve.

Page 32

OAK'S MEMO
You need to think about the types of Pokemon you are battling 
against. Choosing the correct Pokemon can make a big difference.

TYPES OF POKEMON
There are many different types of Pokemon. Each type of Pokemon 
has strengths and weaknesses against different types. It's like a large 
scale version of the game Rock, Paper, Scissors. Rock is stronger 
than scissors, scissors are stronger than paper and paper is stronger 
than rock.

** Some Pokemon have two types.

BATTLE SCREEN

OAK'S MEMO
Many areas have the same types of Pokemon. You are wise to match 
your Pokemon according to their strengths against the opponents.

** During battle there are 4 menu options. You may select FGHT, PKMN, 
ITEM and RUN.

FGHT "Fight"
This displays the abilities of the Pokemon. Select the one you want to 
use and attack.

PKMN "Pokemon"
Use this to select a different Pokemon. Choose the one you want and press 
the A Button. It takes 1 turn for the exchange to happen. You can use this 
to view the status of your Pokemon without wasting a turn.

ITEM
This uses an item from your inventory. Select the item you wish to use 
and then the Pokemon you wish to use it on.

RUN
Use it to escape from a battle.

** PP - Power Points tell you how many times you may use an ability.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Page 35

WHO'S FIRST
When the fight begins, the Pokemon on top of the list will go first. If you 
win the fight, all of the Pokemon who participated will receive 
experience points.

LEVEL UP
Pokemon gain experience points by fighting. If they receive enough 
experience points, their level will increase. They may learn new abilities 
or even evolve when their levels increase.

TRY TO LINK
Pokemon that you get by trading with a friend will grow faster than 
those that are not traded. It is definitely worth your while to trade 
your Pokemon with others.

** GAME OVER
Your game is over when all of your Pokemon have fainted. When your 
game is over, your Pokemon will be taken to the last Pokemon Centre you 
used and half of your money will be gone.

the A Button.

Page 38

STEP 7
You will be asked if you want to trade your Pokemon with your friend's
Pokemon. Select TRADE to confirm the deal. If you don't like the Pokemon 
your friend selected, you can cancel too.

STEP 8
After the trade is done, you may return to the Trade Center. Press START 
and choose RESET. You will return to the Title Screen.

OAK'S MEMO
A traded Pokemon may be one of the Pokemon you want to play with. 
However, if your badge doesn't match the level of the Pokemon, the 
Pokemon won't work. Pokemon you receive via Link Cable will grow 
faster and may evolve differently. Try to trade often.
