Finding out from Green that Saffron City is blocked by a psychic barrier, Blue decides to discuss the matter with his grandfather.
Red travels along Route 21 on his way to Pallet Town, where he wants to meet with Professor Oak. Red arrives at Pallet and notices, with bafflement, that it is completely still: deserted. He enters Oak's lab, where he sees the Professor. Red pulls out his pokédex to show Oak, complaining about how he can't get into Saffron City. Without a word, Oak turns on Red, attacking him. Red instinctively dodges and sends out Ivysaur, but Professor Oak demonstrates psychic powers and uses Psybeam on Ivysaur. Red realizes that this is not Professor Oak.
