Pokemon Red and Blue Walkthrough

Mt. Moon

[table “” not found /]

Mt. Moon is a small cave between Route 3 and Route 4. There will be many wild Pokemon as you explore – mostly Zubat – so be prepared for trouble. Follow my walkthrough exactly to easily get all the items and battle all the trainers along the way.

Enter the cave and walk forward to a sign. You’ll see a girl right next to the sign who will challenge you to a Pokemon battle.

If you need to, you can return to the Pokemon Center to heal your Pokemon. Next, go to the southwest corner of the cave. You should find TM12 – Water Gun here. Go north to find a Potion right next to another Pokemon trainer.

This will clear out the southwest section of the cave. Easy, right? Return to the sign from earlier and go to the northeast. You should find a ladder near the narrow path. Take this ladder to another ladder, which will lead to a completely separate floor. To the north is another Pokemon trainer.

After the battle, walk to the northeast to find an HP Up. That’s all there is in this area, so take the ladders back to the first floor.

Once you’re back on the first floor, go directly south until you find another Pokemon trainer.

A Potion can be found to the southwest. Walk a short distance to the east to find a Rare Candy. A few steps to the northwest is another trainer.

Another ladder can be found to the west. Take this ladder and another ladder back down to the second floor. Another Pokemon trainer can be found in this area near TM01 – Mega Punch.

If you investigate the rock to the right, you’ll find a hidden Ether. Now that this area is cleared, take the ladders back up to the first floor. Follow the path to the west to meet with another Pokemon trainer.

Go to the northwest to the last section of the first floor. A moon stone is in the corner near another trainer.

Take the nearby ladder back down to the second floor. Follow the path to the east and battle the nearby Rocket. This Rocket is very tough, so make sure your team is healthy before the battle.

After the battle, follow the path to the south, west, and then north until you meet a Rocket.

Up ahead is a Super Nerd Pokemon trainer. He’ll challenge you to another battle.

After the battle, you will get to choose between two fossils: the Helix Fossil and the Dome Fossil. You can revive these fossils later on in the game. The Helix Fossil becomes the ancient Pokemon Omanyte, and the Dome Fossil become the ancient Pokemon Kabuto. You can now exit Mt. Moon to Route 4.
