In Pokemon Gold I beat the Rocket Hideout, but the man in Mahogany Town won't allow passage to Route 44. I read that you cannot do this until you beat the Radio Tower sequence, but I know this is false, since in Crystal and Silver I went to the Ice Path before that and used a Pokemon I caught there in the Radio Tower. Do I need to beat the Lighthouse or the Mahogany Gym or something? Note: I am NOT talking about HeartGold. I am discussing the original.
