I had catch 10 pokemon but i can not go to prof aide

I'm going to assume you're playing Pokemon Red, Blue or Yellow...

To reach Professor Oak's aide, you must first have collected the HM for Cut on the SS Anne in Vermillion Gym. Also, you have to have collected the Cascade Badge, so you can use Cut outside of battle.

After teaching to a Pokemon, go to Diglett's Cave and go through it to the end.
From there, go south until you reach a small house and a small tree.
Use Cut on that tree, and head south to a larger building.
The aide is inside. He'll give you the HM for Flash, which is required for Rock Tunnel.

However, if you so desire, you can actually get through  Rock Tunnel without Flash, as the walls glow slightly around the edges. The trainers don't glow, of course, but running into them in the dark just means you're on the right path.

Hope that helps!

Walkthroughs on ALL main series games as well as several spin-offs. I can give advice on basic gameplay, Pokemon locations & breeding tips for said games, as well as Gym and Elite 4 battle tips. I don't know very much about the card game, as I haven't played or collected it in years, so please don't ask. I also don't know much about the Events, where to go to get them, or when the next one will be, especially outside of Australia, so once again, don't ask.


I've completed the Pokedexes several times in most of the hand-held games, including: Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Fire Red, Leaf Green, Diamond and Pearl. I also have the Five-Star Black Trainer card in Diamond, and have played Yellow so many times, I now get bored after 5 minutes. I use my Red game for Missingno experiments, and to see what kinda cheat codes work. I also filled the Browser in PKMN ranger 2 in less than a week.

If the Pokemon Tower fan-fiction site counts as a publication, then yeah, I've been on there. Also, I'm on DeviantART, although those were just short fanfics as tributes to MiyaToriaka's brilliant artwork...

I technically didn't even finish grade 10, but I've been playing the Pokemon games for over ten years now.
