After traveling down Routes 5 and {{rtn|6|Kanto}}, using the {{OBP|Underground Path|Routes 5-6}} to bypass [[Saffron City]], the player finally arrives in {{ci|Vermilion}}. This city is home to another Pokémon Gym; however, the way to it is blocked by a small tree. The only thing to do is to show the ticket to the {{tc|Sailor}} guarding the harbor, allowing entry into the S.S. Anne. It is here, after assisting the captain with his seasickness, that the player will obtain the first of the seven [[HM|Hidden Machines]] available in the game, containing {{m|Cut}}. With this, and the {{Badge|Cascade}}, the tree blocking the way to Vermilion Gym can be easily cut through, and [[Lt. Surge]], a Gym Leader specializing in {{type|Electric}}s, can be challenged. From here, {{rt|11|Kanto}} beckons, as does [[Diglett's Cave]], through which is the only way to get back to {{rt|2|Kanto}}, and a second HM, containing {{m|Flash}} held by one of [[Professor Oak]]'s aides on {{rt|2|Kanto}}. The player takes a brief detour to Pewter City's museum's back entrance which was previously blocked due to a Cut-able tree, which can now easily be bypassed. The player obtains the [[Old Amber]] in the museum. Heading back to Diglett's Cave, and to Vermilion, the player must go to Cerulean and to the east, onto {{rt|9|Kanto}} and towards the [[Rock Tunnel]].
Rock Tunnel, a still undeveloped natural tunnel between the sections of {{rt|10|Kanto}}, is pitch black inside; for this reason, {{m|Flash}} is recommended, but not required, for navigation of it. Finally reaching [[Lavender Town]], the only town in Kanto without a Pokémon Gym besides Pallet, there is not much to do; the local [[Pokémon Tower]] is haunted. From here, {{rt|8|Kanto}} leads to Saffron City, but it again must be bypassed by way of another {{OBP|Underground Path|Routes 7-8}}, which has its other entrance on {{rt|7|Kanto}}, on the west side of Saffron. [[Celadon City]], the home of the fourth Gym which specializes in {{type|Grass}} Pokémon, is just a short walk further. Like the Vermilion Gym, the Celadon Gym also has a small tree blocking the way to its entrance, and an old man outside.
The [[Rocket Game Corner]] in Celadon is not what it appears to be. In fact, the Game Corner itself is merely the above-ground portion of a sprawling underground complex: the [[Rocket Hideout]]. The Team Rocket boss, Giovanni, appears for the first time here, and after his defeat, flees, leaving behind a Silph Scope. A Silph Scope is required to fully navigate the Pokémon Tower inside of Lavender Town that the player encountered earlier.
