Got through Rock Tunnel a bit ago..
Outside of Rock Tunnel I decided to catch a Machop. Anything I would've used would defeat it, so I had to chuck balls at it. It took 6 tries to get it, in the end.
Trained Machop up to level 24 or so and then entered Rock Tunnel.
Got my first taste of the Psychic type as I fought Slowpokes. They made quick work for Machop so I had to use Primeape on all the slowpokes after that. I know that Pyshics will be a royal thorn in my side during this and the Slowpokes are pure proof of what is yet to come..
As I traveled through Rock Tunnel, my Machop was leveling pretty fast so while in the tunnel, it evolved! Now it's a beautiful Machoke and will be a secondary fighter below the in game traded Machamp.
I skipped a few trainers so I could heal in Lavender and then returned, where - shock horrors! Primeape fainted for the first time! Darn!
Oh well, I managed to get through Rock Tunnel without Flash, anyway. Flash is oddly realistic in Red and Blue. You can't see your surroundings but you can see a small amount around you such as the walls. It works way more realistic than the other games so far.
Anyway, I'm now in Lavender. Ill do the next part once I finish Pokemon Tower and get Machamp/Poke Flute/Super Rod/Poliwag. It'll be a huge segment that's for sure!
