Cerulean City Gym
The Cerulean City Pokemon Gym is located to the right of the Pokemon Center. There are two Pokemon trainers in this gym that can be battled before the gym leader.

Cerulean City Gym Leader: Misty
The leader of the Cerulean City Pokemon Gym is Misty. She uses two very strong water-type Pokemon with a powerful water-type move called Bubblebeam. Not only does this deal a decent amount of damage, but it may reduce the speed of your Pokemon.
Bulbasaur can easily blast through these Pokemon. If you chose Squirtle or Charmander, you’ll have a bit more trouble. Of course, your other Pokemon may be able to take them on if they’re strong enough. If not, go to Route 24 and 25 to find Oddish (Red) or Bellsprout (Blue), grass-type Pokemon that can deal some damage to these water-types. You will need to train them up a bit to be on equal footing.

Defeat Misty to earn the Cascade Badge. This badge will allow Pokemon up to Level 30 to obey you, including traded Pokemon. The badge also allow you to use HM01 Cut outside of battle. You will also receive TM11 Bubblebeam, the same powerful water-type move Misty’s Pokemon were using.
Now that the gym is taken care of, you can continue on with your adventure. Route 5 is the next stop. However, if you haven’t gone through Routes 24 and 25, you’ll need to do that first.
Enter the house to the north of the Pokemon Gym and exit out the back. You’ll find a rocket in the back of the house who will challenge you to a battle. Defeat him to earn TM28 – Dig.

You can now continue south to Route 5.
