Global PokÚdeX Plus Forums _ Games _ Question about learning moves in Gen I

Posted by: Koira Mar 15 2019, 05:21 AM

So I had the genius idea of attempting a run of Red using only one pokemon which only knows metronome. I thought it would be fun to try.
...only didn't get very far. crying.gif
I chose Clefable as a pokemon because it's available so early. Both Bulbapedia and Serebii agree that Clefable learns Metronome at Level 1 in Gen 1. So I caught a Clefairy in Mt Moon and immediately evolved it using the one moon stone you get early on. It didn't learn Metronome. So I leveled it up by one level, but it still refused to learn anything.
What am I doing wrong? What does it mean that Clefable learns metronome at level one, if this method doesn't work...? There's no move tutor in gen one, is there? And in any case, I wouldn't want to play half the game before I can start what I actually wanted to do...
Any of you pokemon experts srsfacts.gif have any ideas? I'd appreciate your help!
Also: is there an alternative option of a metronome pokemon to use?
And have any of you ever tried this challenge?

I'm not sure how any of the level 1 moves work, but Clefairy is listed to learn Metronome at level 31. Considering Clefable only has four moves on it's learnset I would have thought it would learn Metronome upon evolving. headache.gif
Seems you will have to train it up to level 31 or get the TM35 in PokÚmon Lab on Cinnabar Island.
I also haven't tried this challenge before.

i think your best bet at this point would be a game shark and hacking the move in.
