After cleaning the moon dust off from his trek through the mountain, Matthew exits Cerulean City to the north to battle his way across Nugget Bridge.
As Matthew and his battle pets plunge deeper into Mt. Moon, it becomes dreadfully apparent to him that the perpetual horde of Zubats should be the least of his worries.
After scoring his first gym badge, Matthew and crew head east towards Mt. Moon, laying waste to all of the children and their cute pets looking for a fight along the mountain pass.
After thoroughly trouncing his rival a second time, Matthew heads north through Viridian Forest towards Pewter City and his first gym battle with the rock-type guru, Brock.
With this year being the 20th anniversary of the release of the original Pokémon games, Matthew decides to relive a bit of his childhood in a different way – by going through the ONLY generation of Pokémon that he ever played while using the Nuzlocke Challenge rule set.
