If you're talking about Cinnabar Gym, did you think to look for the key in a nearby building?

I believe he is talking about cinnabar. Go to the mansion and find the key on the top floor.

Green City? There's no city named that. S:
I believe you're talking about Viridian city. You have to beat all the other gym leaders first.

Has anyone else noticed that the nurse Joy in Fucshia (sp?) City in G/S/C is oddly colored? Is there any point to this, such as an anime reference, or is it nothing?

I’ve found Heracross by headbutting the trees behind Kurt’s house.

I've been playing Crystal and I've gone through the Ice Path so many times looking for a Swinub. Every source I find say that it's very common yet I have never seen it. Anyone got any answers?

Hm.. you could try getting a Pokemon with Sweet Scent and using it in the cave..
Or you could catch two Piloswine and breed them.

I'm not sure if Sweet Scent works in caves, but it could, so give it a shot if you'd like.

You can try using my strategy. Swinub are Ice/Ground and immune to electric attacks. So put an electric-type in your lead spot, preferably a young/weak one. Equip it with an item like smoke ball, that will allow it to escape any wild pokemon. Putting another ice or ground type up front works second best.

Some wild pokes are naturally programmed to be harder to catch than others, so a lot of it has to do with luck. But I've found using this strategy highly increases the chances of drawing out any specific pokemon you're hunting. Let me know if it works for you. :-]

He never said he had trouble catching it, he says he can't find one. Looking on bulbapedia, it says they don't appear at night in Crystal version, so if you've only searched at night, wait until it's morning or daytime.

The batteries in Gold and Silver are not “dodgy”—they are normal batteries. However, Gold and Silver (and Crystal) have an internal clock that is constantly running. This naturally drains the battery.

Red and Blue do not have an internal clock, so their batteries do not run down as quickly.

Wh-what? You can't even get to Goldenrod through Union Cave, it connects Violet and Azalea... And Goldenrod is the 3rd badge so you should be heading for Ecrutek. What screwed up version of Silver are you playing?

Boney's right. Union Cave leads to Azelea, which holds the 2nd gym badge. Make sure the game you're playing is licensed by Nintendo, a Game Boy cartidge, silvery-gray with speckles of glitter, and has a Lugia on the sticker.

Haircuts raise happiness. There is a cheap brothe (go figure..) and an expensive one. I think the pricier one raises the happy more.

Gary's sister offers a grooming service later in the game. Visit her after the 16th badge in her home in Pallet.

Celadon City. I think there is a free one in the Power Plant.
