There are three different levels in Mt. Moon, populated
by four types of Pokémon and multiple trainers. Also along the way,
you'll notice that the criminal gang Team Rocket is carrying out an
operation in Mt. Moon, and it's up to you to blow their operation
There's a rare candy within Mt. Moon, but save it for now. Your
Pokemon level up too fast right now to justify using a rare candy.
In addition, Mt. Moon is where you will find your first
Evolutionary Stones. The Moon Stones you find here can be used to
evolve Nidorino, Nidorina, Jigglypuff, or Clefairy.

The most common Pokémon among caves in all the Pokémon Core games.
At this part of the game you can only evolve it into Golbat. In
order to evolve it further into Crobat, you
will need to beat the Elite Four and to raise Golbat's happiness to
the maximum. Crobat, however, is an excellent Pokémon which has
decent Attack and magnificent Speed. You can catch Zubat later
because Golbat doesn't do very well on the Elite Four.
The first Rock-type Pokémon in this game. It has powerful attacks
early on and is easy to train. However, it can't stand Water- nor
Grass-type attacks so be cautious when using it. It evolves into
leveling up and then into Golem by
trading. Golem, however, is inferior to Rhydon (which
is also a Rock/Ground-type Pokémon) statwise and Rhydon can be
obtained easier since Rhyhorn doesn't need to be traded to
A weak Bug/Grass-type Pokémon which can be easily found in Basement
Floor 1. It evolves into Parasect.
It has numerous weaknesses and its stats are quite poor (especially
Speed), so using it isn't recommendable.
Clefairy the Moon Pokémon. It has some decent attacks and some very
useful egg moves, though its Attack isn't that high. It is a bit
difficult to find, but it can be bought at Celadon City. It evolves
into Clefable by
using the Moon Stone.
