In Pokemon Red Version, you are allowed to choose one out of the 3 starter Pokemon. Well, I chose Charmander but now I am confused as to how I can catch the other 2 starter Pokemon. Does anyone know how?
if you want everything legitimately, you'll need to trade with someone else, it's plain and simple.
It's the same for several other pokemon, which aren't available in Red but are in Blue (or yellow).
Some pokemon also evolve only during trading.
This is to encourage people buying the other game as well (and another gameboy) this is called 1 game for the price of 2.
I believe the yellow version, you can get them all, you start with a pikachu, then through the game get given, win or find the other primary pokemon, charmander, squirtle and bulbasaur, that game was my favorite, but like others have said if you didnt want to buy a new game, yourll have to trade with other people, or between your devices with your other games.
unfortunatly in red and blue you only get that one you chose, it sucks
Hope this helps
