Lavender Town

Lavender Town is a small, spooky area on the east side of Kanto. You won’t be able to do much the first time you arrive. Talk to the residents and buy some items from the Poke Mart. You can finally buy Revives, which will revive a fainted Pokemon with 50% health!

The building to the left of the Poke Mart has the name rater. Speak with him to change the nicknames of any of your Pokemon. However, you cannot change the nickname of Pokemon received in trades.

After the battle, the only thing left to do is go west to Route 8. You can train up a little bit on Route 12, but your path will be blocked halfway through. When you enter the route house between Lavender Town and Route 12, go up stairs and talk with the kid to receive TM39 Swift. Swift is a normal-type attack that will never miss the target.
