Select the conditions that currently apply on your game and then press the Refresh table view button to update the table in accordance with your selections.

Route 10

Where?

North of Lavender Town, south of the east end of Route 9. Technically the easiest way to Route 10 is to walk up from Lavender Town, but there isn't actually any grass on that side of the route; you need to head east from Cerulean, Surf down from Route 9 and get on land by the Power Plant, where there is grass. (The grass next to where you originally surf into the water is on Route 9, not Route 10.)

Notes

Once you have all sixteen badges, Zapdos (level 50) will be waiting for you on the left side of the Power Plant.

How to read this table

The bolded horizontal headings stand for the main condition that affects the following slots; the big cells on the left side describe which circumstances must apply for the rows they span to be active. The percentages tell you the chance of a Pokémon from this slot (row) appearing for any given wild encounter, provided the condition on the left holds.

Each condition (i.e. each bolded horizontal heading) always has the same number of slots active. Usually it's two, though the radio condition in HG/SS has four slots and tables can have any number of static slots combined under one blank condition (-) for less cluttered viewing. This is reflected in the slots usually being displayed in pairs, which except for the aforementioned HG/SS radio conditions always means that only one pair is active at any one time. (For the radio conditions, it's either two pairs or one quadruple.)

If all this confuses you, and I don't blame you, just set the conditions in the form on the right to what actually applies for you right now and press the Refresh Table View button, which will hide all the inactive slots and leave only the Pokémon you're actually going to be seeing. This will also recalculate the statistics at the bottom of the table accordingly.
