I am playing Pokemon Green on my GameBoy Color (JAP), I went to the SS Anne, beat the rival, talked to the captain and left the ship. I still don't have the cut HM and the ship is still here, am I missing something? Thank you.

  • If you have a TM51, it should teach Cut as HM01. – pinckerman Feb 17 '15 at 23:21
  • I know traditionally when you get on the SS Anne and talk to the Captain you rub his back to help him feel better from his sea sickness and he gives it to you. Is this by any chance a pirated version of it? If so it could explain why the event didn't happen for you. I suggest you go back and try again. – Andrew B Feb 17 '15 at 23:24
  • @pinckerman as far as I know (and can find on the internet) TM51 doesn't exist in first gen. Source? – Andrew B Feb 17 '15 at 23:25
  • @AndrewB I know, but in the Green beta there were 5 "special" TMs that worked like HMs. I've never played Green, just a supposition. – pinckerman Feb 17 '15 at 23:36
  • @pinckerman Aaahh okay, the more you know! – Andrew B Feb 18 '15 at 0:37

To get the Cut HM, once finding your way to the top of the ship, and defeating your rival, the captain will say he's not feeling well, and ask you to rub his back. Make sure you exhaust his dialogue (you may be presented with a "Yes/No" choice, I'm not too sure. If you are, choose "Yes"). You will make him feel better, and he should reward you with the Cut HM (HM01), regardless.

The only restriction might be that you will need to beat Misty (Cerulean City Gym Leader) in order to obtain it, but I don't believe it's necessary. Defeating her allow you to use the HM outside of battle.
