Cinnabar Gym

cinnabar_gym_map
Cinnabar Gym focuses on Fire-type Pokémon, and you will most probably be facing the Burn status condition, where your Pokémon will lose HP after every turn. To take down all Pokémon in this gym easily, use powerful Ground, Rock or Water-type attacks. Do not bring any Bug, Steel, Grass or Ice-type Pokémon as they have the worst defense against Fire-type.

The starter, Squirtle is beneficial for this gym due to its Water-type attacks. Geodude and Diglett can use Ground-type attacks like Earthquake to defeat those Pokémon quickly. You could also catch some Water-type Pokémon like Tentacool, Gyarados, Horsea etc. by surfing and fishing on previous water routes to help out, but make sure that they do not have a secondary type as Ice.

The gym leader Blaine will give you the Volcano Badge after his defeat, which allows you to access a brand new region, the Sevii Islands archipelago. This set of islands may not be mandatory for you to progress further into the game, but they can be a good training ground to level up your Pokémon before the final gym.
