By listlesssalmonlistlesssalmon Last updated

Version on pastebin here:

Some optional supporting resources available here:

If you need to do LID manip, do LID manip.
10am, no DST, yes phone.
Totodile - accept 12/11/10/10/9 + (can be pickier if going for a very good time), take berry off.

Kill an encountered level 3 or level 4 before Mr Pokemon's house (If 12 defence @L5 kill an encountered level 2 as well). After killing that until Rival only kill something if it will complete your exp. (A second level 3 or a level 2 if you killed a level 4, a level 4 if you killed a level 2).

Rival - Leer once then spam scratch

After rival:
If still L6 and had 12 defence @L5: kill one L2/L3 encounter if you have killed no encounters so far. Otherwise run from everything.
If still L6 and had 11 defence at L5 and have killed nothing so far then run from everything and fight Youngster Joey (the stander below Mikey).
If L6 with 11 defence at L5 and have killed one thing, kill an encounter to complete your exp, don't talk to Joey.
If L7 after rival never kill anything else and never fight Joey.

Name Rival a and talk to elm.
Say no to the catching guy.
Catch a sentret if you see one (scratch x1).

If fighting Joey talk to him to fight then don't go through the grass. [Joey- Scratch x3]

Mikey - If L7 for Mikey then Rage everything (switch to scratch if turn 1 tackle miss). If L6 for Mikey obviously scratch everything.
AVOID DON (scratch everything if hit @L8, rage everything if hit @L7)
On Don pause buffer equip berry, heal to 15+ hp and ring Mom (don't save money).
On 25+ hp consider skipping the menu for no-pause Don and let Mom ring you.
On 19+ hp with Level 8 and 17+ attack consider (especially on bad runs) skipping menu for no-Pause don and YOLOing the 3-shot on Spearow. (Heal during the fight if you miss it and finish with scratch).
Catch Bellsprout if you see one and don't have a cutter (scratch x1).
Get the bitter berry.

Violet Gym:
Rage x3 (+ Scratch) Spearow guy
Heal before next guy if hp is low, equip bitter berry- consider double potion if have it and if hp is really low to avoid menu to heal again before Falkner.
Rage next guy.
Heal <20hp. (If hit Don and killed a L3 Pidgey and L3 Sentret or 2 L3 Sentrets or fought Joey you'll be L11 for Pidgeotto and so should only heal <18hp). Equip Bitter Berry if you didn't already.
Rage Falkner.

Center + talk to the egg guy.
Get the przcureberry.
Fight Albert- scratch everything on <15 dv, rage on 15 dv. (Consider rage on lower dv to save bitter berry for Ralph more often).

Catch a Sandshrew if you don't have a cut slave yet (scratch x1). (Turnframe at the end of union cave until you get one if necessary).
Don't kill encounters after hitting Daniel or Bill.
Kill a geodude/sandshrew/onix if you encounter one.
Kill another if you encounter it if you have <10 special or <5 speed or 10-12 speed or if you have an otherwise good reason based on the specific circumstances you're in or you just want to play safer. (Don't kill only two geodudes).

Avoid Spinner Daniel- WG if hit. - Don't take forever with dodging him, Daniel is pretty quick and gives useful exp.
Avoid Spinner Bill - WG everything if hit.
Fight Vulpix guy- WG + Rage usually kills, otherwise WG+Scratch
Avoid Spinner Anthony- WG everything if hit.

Go talk to Kurt, then go to mart and buy (consider 1 potion if you have none) 5 super potions, 4 repels and 3 antidotes. Pickup the hidden full heal behind slowpoke well. (Can do 6 super potions and 2 antidotes- but this makes Violet shop much tighter).

Heal if necessary, then WG x2 Rattatas (if 15 for first rat scratch them instead)
WG everything on the Zubat/Ekans fight (if 15 for both Zubat and Ekans and 11+dv attack spam scratch instead)
Rage the next guy if have good attack or you're level 16 with less than 15dv special. Otherwise WG everything.

Go get the squirtbottle. Then Kenya, then go to the underground.
Slowpoke guy- Bite the slowpokes unless 47 attack at L21 (15dv always gets this, 14dv can get this with some extra stat exp) then Headbutt them.
Electric Poke guy- WG Magnemites, Headbutt Voltorb.

Get the coin case. Consider getting the super potion if you somehow used (almost) all your healing items. Ponder how much better return would do later on if you increased crocs happiness by getting him a haircut from that guy at that stall.

Get abra (try to buy him again after for less text), then go to the radio tower, go to the pc, deposit croc then deposit egg then withdraw Croc. Win the masterball, leave, menu, swap slot 1 poke with Croc and Teleport.

Go to Violet mart and buy 5 escape ropes, 1 X Attack if 11+dv attack (or 10dv attack with 176 non-Ralph extra attack stat exp), otherwise 2 X Attacks and 1 X Speed, buy 1/2 awakenings if you want them (based on full heals remaining)- if you desperately want awakenings but have no money for them buy 4 escape ropes and walk out of the hideout later then protein on the ice punch menu [costs 2 seconds and some Seel range])

Go to sudowoodo use the squirtbottle then run from it.
Fight Drowzee guy- Headbutt+Scratch Drowzee.

If you have literally 0 speed dv you should do Kimonos before Morty. Otherwise go to the gym.
Throughout gym if confident something will be finished off with WG instead of bite, WG it rather than biting again to save super effective text. Heal off sleep whenever put to sleep.

First Guy- Bite x5
Second Guy- Bite x2
Third Guy- Bite, Bite x2, Bite
Heal if you got Night Shaded. (Consider not healing 1 night shade off if you have 13+ dv speed).

First Guy- Headbutt + Surf Noctowl
Second Guy- Headbutt Growlithes with any spare headbutts on 59+ attack @L28L28 (10+dv always gets this, 9dv can sometimes). You need 5 Headbutts after this fight if doing 1 X Attack Chuck and 6 after this fight if doing 2 X Attack Chuck.
Third Guy- Headbutt + Scratch Marill
Avoid Spinner Ernest- If hit then Surf the Machops and Bite x2 Poliwhirl.

Talk to Jasmine then get the rare candy then do this menu.
-Equip Bitter berry if you still have it
-Use rare candy to evolve into feraligator
-Use a super repel
-Swap super repel to slot 1
-Escape rope

If hit spinners consider doing late candy strats (in which case obviously don't candy here). Advisable on 14+ dv speed if have enough extra exp (735+).

Go get Strength.
Surf to Cianwood.
Avoid Spinner Kaylee- if you pause for her then teach Strength over slot 2 scratch on that menu. If you hit her and have Strength strength everything, otherwise Headbutt everything.
Go to Chucks Gym

If on late candy/hit Kaylee with good special and doing Early Jasmine strats then save some surfs and strength some stuff in here instead. If opening the menu anyway at any point in Chucks gym, then (teach Strength first if you didn't already obviously) use Strength from menu at the same time.
Adjust Pre-Chuck Strengths and Surfs as necessary for if hit Ernest (but these notes set out using up all surfs by end of hideout assuming no spinners and headbutt 1 growlithe).

Headbutt+Strength Hitmonlee
Headbutt+Strength Hitmonchan (if no Strength yet then Surf)
Surf Machops
Headbutt+Surf Machoke
Super potion if you have <55 hp.

Go to lake of rage.
Avoid Spinner Benjamin- if hit him strength x2, bite
Masterball Gyarados (renaming it a saves 3 frames if you're perfect), say yes to Lance. Fly to Mahogany (down 2).
Go to the rocket hideout. Watch Lance try to kill that guy with an enormous dragon then follow him down the stairs whilst wondering if you're really doing the right thing here.

Surf everything in hideout. If won't have 3 surfs for magnemite guy save some by strengthing some stuff.
Go fight Magnemite guy then press the switch and go around. Get the free heal from Lance.

Use brain/one of the PP management excel sheets to manage PP properly from here until the heal house. Otherwise use this rough guide that will be slightly inefficient in many specific circumstances.

1st guy: Headbutt x2
2nd guy: Surf x2
3rd guy: Headbutt x2 (consider bite ekans on 15dv), talk to her again for the password
4th guy: Headbutt Ditto

Give Jasmine the secretpotion then escape rope and bike to the gym.
Surf x3 Jasmine. Consider how much cooler that fight would have been if you did it like 20 minutes earlier.

Fly to Goldenrod City (up 4), go to the mart.

Safety strat: fly to Violet, bike to the water, surf across and pick up the rare candy item ball before flying to Goldenrod- use it when seems appropriate- if no spinners then after Muk is timed nicely, if Ernest or Benjamin after Magnemite guy on the normal menu is timed very nicely- note this burns not only a fly, the movement and the time actually candying but also gives you L64 after Charizard.

Get Return and buy tm33 Ice Punch. Buy 2 Calciums unless:
1. 15dv special and not 2/3/10 speed (buy nothing).
2. 13dv special and 8-12dv defence. (this gets extremespeed when it wouldn't otherwise, so its pretty borderline- probably shouldn't buy anything).
3. 10/14/15 special and 2/3/10 speed (buy 1 calcium and 1 carbos).
4. 13 special, 10 speed and 13+ defence (buy 1 calcium and 1 carbos).

Next guy: Surf (+bite) Porygon
Executive: Surf the Koffings, Bite+Surf Weezing. If Level 40 for any Koffings, Ice Punch them instead, if L40 for Weezing Surf it and then finish with Bite if surf doesn't kill. Leave then go to the underground. (Pause for a moment in the room with the rotator to not crash into him).
