You can get Bulbasaur, Squirtle, Charmander all of them.


A girl in Cerulean City will offer you her Bulbasaur if your Pikachu is in good spirits. The easiest way to do this is to give Pikachu a Potion when at full health over and over again. Pikachu's happiness will climb, and you'll hold onto the Potion. Venusaur, to whom Bulbasaur evolves into, is a fantastic Grass/Poison-type with good Special and balanced other stats that will fair better than a Vileplume or Victreebel on your team.


Officer Jenny, found in the heart of Vermillion City, will hand you a Squirtle after you get the Thunderbadge. Upon evolving into Blastoise, this Pokemon carries very balanced stats with an emphasis on Defense. Blastoise makes for a good alternative to Lapras or Vaporeon should you not be interested in either of those.


Right after the Nugget Bridge, a trainer awaits you on a plateau to give you his Charmander. The young Fire-type, who comes very early in the game, becomes a powerhouse after evolving into Charizard. The Fire/Flying-type dragon Pokemon learns powerful attacks like Flamethrower and Slash and has magnificent Speed and Special. Unlike in Red and Blue, Charizard gets access to Fly. A good alternative to Arcanine or Flareon if they don't tickle your fancy.

You can get Bulbasaur and Squirtle as well.

Bulbasaur is found in Cerulean City. You need to make Pikachu happy in order to get it. The House next to the Pokemart has Bulbasaur.

Squirtle is found in Vermillion City. You need to beat Lt. Surge to get it. Officier Jenny is the person who gives it to you.
