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.
