P O K E M O N F I R E R E D This walkthrough will tell you how to beat the best of the best. Gym Leader #1: Brock. He is not the leader in the first gym that you will see. You need to go past that city and into Peweter City. Brock is a pretty easy gym leader. To beat him use your squirtle or bulbsaur and use water or grass attacks.. If you chose a Charmander I would catch a caterprie and evolve it into a Butterfree and then use confusion. Gym Leader #2: Misty. Again having a Charmander really does not pay off here because Misty has all water pokemon. The best starter pokemon here would be Bulbsaur but also if you managed to somehow catch a electric pokemon USE IT. Anyway the best way to beat this leader would be to store your Charmander away usless you have less than 7 pokemon and use grass or electric attacks. Gym Leader #3: Lt.Surge. Go on the S.S Anne and get The HM cut. Use it and the shrub blocking Diglets cave and catch a few Diglett with dig. Then go back and cut down the shrub blocking the gym. Go in and whip Lt.Surges A**. Gym Leader #4: Erika. She uses grass type pokemon. This is the point in the game where picking a charmander finally pays off. If you chose a Charmander then use fire attacks to make Erikas pokemon faint. Overall I would use Fire, Psycic or flying. Gym Leader #5: Koga. Koga has some very strong pokemon. If you intend to beat him your pokemon sould be about lvl 41. I would use Psycic pokemon aganist Koga, but you don't have to. As long as you have very strong pokemon you should have little trouble. If you have trouble use the Psycic pokemon. Gym Leader #6: Sabrina. She has very good pokemon. You will need very strong Psycihc pokemon to beat her. The only psychic pokemon weakness is psychic attacks. USE PSYCHIC ATTACKS! Gym Leader #7: Blaine. After you get the secret in the pokemon mansion you can enter the cinnabar gym. I think you have to answer a question about pokemon in order to advance into the next room. If you answer it wrong you have to face the trainer. Blaine has fire pokemon. The answer to beating him is pretty obvious. Use water and ground pokemon and attacks. If you dont have any water pokemon quit playing the game because you are a failure. IF a water pokemon faints use a ground pokemon and crush him. Gym Leader #8: Giovanni. Remember the first gym you saw well the gym leader is back and ready to lose. Go inside and face him. Giovanni has very good ground pokemon and I really can't help you with this. I beat it by using very high level pokemon so I recommend you do this. I am sorry about this gym leader. T H E E L I T E F O U R The elite four has five trainers four very strong people and you rival. The elite four gets stronger every time you face them. Your rival is the hardest. He has different pokemon that play to your first pokemons weaknesses. #1: Lorelei. She has ice and water pokemon. Even though she has ice pokemon, some of her pokemon are water and even though fire works on ice pokemon it will not work on water pokemon. So bring 1 strong fire pokemon and one strong electric pokemon. #2: Bruno. This dude has rock and fighting pokemon. I guess you could bring a strong water pokemon, but I would bring a very strong fighting pokemon instead. If you have to do some more catching and training that is fine. You could also use flying types asthough I don't recommend it. #3: Agatha. This person uses ghost and poison. I would bring a poison pokemon but you dont have to. Just be sure you have a couple strong pokemon that don't have attacks that have contact such as body slam. These type of attacks will have no effect on the ghost pokemon. #4: Lance. You may think that his dragon pokemon may be hard to beat but they are pretty easy the first time. All you have to do is use a very strong pokemon with ice or dragon attacks and you should beat him no problem. I will add your rival at a later date Bye Bye
