The arrows in the maze will toss you in whichever direction the arrow points. Here, you"ll pick up a few items including a Moon Stone and TM12 - Taunt.

They"ll fight you, and after you"re through with them, they"ll open the gates.

The Boss

Walk through the entrance, and you"ll face Giovanni, the head of Team Rocket, in an intense match. He hasa lv. 25 Onix, a lv. 24 Rhyhorn, and a lv. 29 Kangaskhan. A Grass or Water-type Pokemon would work out finefighting this guy. However, beware of his Kangaskhan, as it can be very powerful. After beating Giovanni, he"ll disappear, andleave behind a Silph Scope. This is used to detect Ghost Pokemon.


Gym Battle!

*
After beating Giovanni in the Game Corner, head to the gym by cutting the tree. Here you will battleErika and other trainers (many of which you can avoid, who all use Grass-type Pokemon. Erika is the trainer in the middle between the two trainers inside the enclosed area.She has a lv. 29 Victreebel, a lv. 24 Tangela, and a lv. 29 Vileplume. If you choose a Fire Pokemon as a starter, then beating herwould be very easy. Even if you didn"t choose a Fire-type starter, a Psycic or Ground Pokemon would come in handy, since Victreebel and Vileplume are weak against those types. Beating her earns you TM19 - Giga Drainand the Rainbow Badge! Next, head to Lavender Town"s Pokemon Tower with your Silph Scope.

Pokemon Tower

*
Once you get to Lavender Town, go into thePokemon Tower. Head up the stairs, picking up items and battling scary looking women. Right before you reach thestairs that leads to the top floor, you will be stopped by the ghost of a dead Marowak. It was a mother of a Cubone,and was killed by the evil Team Rocket. Defeat her to calm her spirits (you cannot catch her).

At the top floor, you"ll be fighting three Rocket members. They will leave one by one after you defeat them.At the end, you"ll find an old man, known as Mr. Fuji. Talk to him, and he"ll transport you to his house, where he"llgive you a PokeFlute.

Go back and cut the tree again to get back to the other side.A fat roadblock, a lv. 30 Snorlax, is blocking the road to Saffron City. Save your game, press "A", and the PokeFlute will beginto play. Snorlax soon wakes up, probably angry at what you just did. Try to catch this Snorlax, which can be quite difficult. Even if you accidentallymade him faint and you didn"t save the game, there"s one more Snorlax in the game.
