Pokémon Blue Walkthrough
Your mom will, starting now, give free rests to you and your Pokemon, acting as a pokemon center with the computer in ya room.
A boy on the way explains that he is a Poke Mart worker at Viridian City, and he will give you a free Potion as a sample. What a nice guy.
The gym's doors are locked, and they won't unlock for a very long time until you've beaten the other 7 trainers in the game. Buy some Poke Balls and talk to the old man to learn how to capture Pokemon. A boy will talk about caterpillar Pokemon.
About the old man, if you go left from him, you will see a tree. Go around the other side and you will get a POTION.
If you go west towards the Pokemon HQ, you will fight Gary. He captured another Pokemon. After you fight him, he will tell you you need Badges to go through. Around here, you can also pick up a few Nidorans.
On your way through Viridian Forest, you should pick up a Pikachu (!!), a Caterpie, and a Weedle. Don't get Kakunas and Metapods, since Caterpie and Weedle will evolve into one eventually. There are a few easy trainers in the forest, they are Bug-catchers and use bugs, so fire works very well on them. The first has a pair of caterpillars at Lv. 6 (Caterpie/Weedle). The second has 2 Lv. 7 Weedles and a Lv. 7 Kakuna. The final trainer has a Lv. 9 Weedle.
There is a Poke Ball, Anidote (comes in handy from the Weedles), and a Potion in the forest. Makes nice additions to your arsenal.
By the way, the Pikachu is a VERY good asset because its only weakness is against ground Pokemon, and it is my favorite Pokemon anyway :-) It will learn awesome attacks later on as well. I personally suggest NOT turning it into a Raichu to preserve it originality, but... if you really want to do so, learn THUNDER first.
