Gen I Gen II Gen III

Celadon City (Japanese: タマムシシティ Tamamushi City) is located in central Kanto. It is one of the largest cities in the region, second only to the giant Saffron City in the east. The city has two entrances, one from the east via Route 7, and one from the west via Route 16. Celadon is home to Erika, the city's Gym Leader and Eusine, the hunter that pursues Suicune.

Places of interest

Celadon Department Store

Main article: Celadon Department Store
File:Celadon-skyline.jpg
The Celadon skyline, as seen in the anime

Celadon's department store is the largest building in the city, as well as the largest shop in Kanto. It is located in the northwest corner of the city. The store has two sliding door entrances, and is six stories high, including a roof level. In front of it lies a decorative fountain. Here, a receptionist welcomes customers and directs them to a board that describes the store layout. The second floor contains Top-Grade Items for Trainers. On the third floor, a man will give away TM18 (Counter) in Generation I, while in Generation III, he becomes a move tutor who will teach the move to a capable Pokémon. The fourth floor contains gift people can buy for others. On the fifth floor there is a pharmacy selling Pokémon stat-enhancing items. And finally, on the Rooftop Square, there are some vending machines and a picnic table. A thirsty trainer will give TMs in exchange for one of the drinks. In Generation I, the trainer trades TM13 (Ice Beam) for Fresh Water, TM48 (Rock Slide) for Soda Pop, and TM49 (Tri Attack) for Lemonade. In Generation III, the trainer trades TM16 (Light Screen) for Fresh Water, TM20 (Safeguard) for Soda Pop, and TM33 (Reflect) for Lemonade.

Celadon Mansion

Main article: Celadon Mansion

Next to the city's Pokémon Center is the Celadon Mansion, where staff members of Game Freak rent a room from an old lady. It is here that players of both the Generation I games and their Generation III remakes can find an Eevee. This is the home of the Game Freak development studio, where the lead developer will give the player a diploma that signifies that they have completed the National Pokédex.

Celadon Mansion plays a more vital role in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen. The player must enter the building, where, on the first floor, he/she will encounter an old woman. The old woman will give the player Tea, which he/she must use to enter Saffron City. Also, if the player is pursuing the Fame Checker sidequest, the second floor proves useful as well, providing information about Erika. Going into the Mansion from the back not only leads the player to Eevee, but to the Know-It-All as well; this NPC provides the player with standard information concerning status changes if the player reads the blackboard.

In Generation II, instead of finding an Eevee, a strange man will give TM03 (Curse) away to people.

Celadon Game Corner

Main article: Celadon Game Corner
File:Rocket Game Corner.png
Celadon Game Corner

The southern part of the city caters to travelers and tourists. In addition to a hotel and a restaurant, the Game Corner is a popular spot. The citizens take pride in the city's beauty and think the casino is bad for their image. The Celadon Game Corner is one of the six Game Corners in the Pokémon world, and for a time, is run by Team Rocket. The woman at the service desk sells 50 coins for PokémonDollar.png1000, and 500 coins for PokémonDollar.png10,000. The option to buy 500 coins is only available in the Generation III remakes.

The only game available is slots which people in the game say are rigged. There are thirty slot machines in the Game Corner, with eight of them having people already seated at them, one that is labeled "out of order," one labeled "reserved," and one where someone left their keys. Slot machines in the first generation and their third generation remakes consist simply of inserting coins and stopping the reels with the A button.

In the Generation I and III games, the player must go into the underbelly of the Game Corner and defeat Team Rocket. By pushing a button underneath a poster, the player gains access to the Rocket Hideout. A Rocket is guarding the poster in question when the player first approaches it. After being defeated, the rocket retreats into the base, leaving the poster un-guarded, and enabling the player to approach. Once the player activates a switch behind the poster, the stairs to the hideout will appear.

In Generation II, it is no longer run by Team Rocket. The hideout is not accessible, but people have not forgotten about the terrible events that occured. In Generation II, a Card Flip game is added, which allows players to place bets on which card a player will flip over. The deck has 24, each one with a number between 1 and 6 and a picture of one of four Pokémon (Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Oddish, or Poliwag). Bets can be placed by single card, by single column, by single row, by a pair of columns, or by a pair of rows.

In Generation IV, the Game Corner was again no longer run by Team Rocket, but the only game inside the building is the Voltord Card Flip Game.

Located right next to the Game Corner is the Rocket Prize Corner, where people can exchange coins for prizes. These prizes include TMs and other rare items. The Celadon Game Corner also sells very rare Pokémon such as Dratini and Porygon in exchange for coins.

Rocket Hideout

Main article: Rocket Hideout (Celadon City)

The Rocket Hideout is a four-floored underground complex beneath the Rocket Game Corner. It is a secret base built used by Team Rocket to facilitate and administer their operations. The Rocket Hideout is accessed by pressing a switch behind a poster in the Game Corner in Celadon City. A Rocket is guarding the poster in question when the player first approaches it. After being defeated, the rocket retreats into the base, leaving the poster un-guarded, and enabling the player to approach. Once the player activates a switch behind the poster, the stairs to the hideout will appear.

In the Generation I and III games, the player must go into the underbelly of the Game Corner and defeat Team Rocket. The player's initial objective is to search for and obtain the Lift Key in order to activate the lift leading to Giovanni. Once battled, Giovanni will flee, leaving the Silph Scope behind.

There are spinner tiles scattered around the place. This tile, when stepped upon, will whisk the player in the direction of the arrows depicted on it. The player will continue to travel in that direction until they hit a wall, land on another spinner (which may send them in a different direction) or land on a Stopper, a tile only used for that purpose.

Celadon Hotel

The hotel, which is located in the southeastern part of the city, is a luxurious building, where the player is not able to rent a room due to the fact that there are no Pokémon allowed in the rooms. A couple is staying here at the moment, who are here on vacation and brought their little brother, who is a bit annoyed about it.

Move Tutor

In Generation III, there is a move tutor who will teach Softboiled to certain Pokémon.

Celadon Gym

Main article: Celadon Gym

The Celadon Gym is the official gym of Celadon City. It is based on Template:Type2 Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Erika. Trainers who defeat her receive the Rainbow Badge.

The Celadon Gym is a garden full of Trainers. It is impossible to reach Erika without fighting at least two other Trainers and using Cut. In all versions and adaptations of Pokémon, Celadon Gym is consistently rendered as a greenhouse.

In the anime, Celadon Gym appeared in Pokémon Scent-Sation!. Attached to the Celadon Gym is a perfume shop, run by Erika herself. Ash wanted to challenge Erika to a gym battle, but the workers at the gym refused to allow his entry because he had earlier criticized a perfume shop, saying that all they do is turn men into zombies. They kicked him out of the shop for insulting them and when Ash found out that the gym is where the perfume was manufactured; he was visibly shocked.

Demographics

The population is 42, making it the second-largest city in Kanto, the largest being Saffron City. This doesn't include the Team Rocket members in the Rocket Hideout. However, the population may differ, due to most of the people in the town are here as tourists. Most of the northern population reside in Celadon; however, the southern side is mainly for tourists and Trainers heading for the Celadon Gym.

Difference between generations

Between Generation I and III, there have being some little and unnoticeable chances to Celadon City. Mostly, there are only aesthetic changes between building designs. A fountain has been added to the western side of the city.

In Generation II, Celadon City has changed quite a bit. Some buildings have been removed and some have been added. There is a café located on the eastern side of town, and the Department Store has been moved the far western side of town.

In the anime

Ash, Misty, and Brock arrive in Celadon City in Pokémon Scent-sation! so that Ash can challenge the Gym Leader, Erika. She initially refuses to battle him due to the fact that he offended her by insulting her perfume, so Ash sneaks into the Celadon Gym disguised as a girl and answering to the name "Ashley". The Gym burns down, but Ash earns the Rainbow Badge.

In Chikorita's Big Upset, it is mentioned that Celadon City has a university, where the episode's Nurse Joy studied Pokémon psychology. In a later episode it is revealed that Professor Oak used to teach there.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Celadon City has appeared in Wartortle Wars, Tauros the Tyrant!, The Jynx Jinx, A Tale of Ninetales, Blame It On Eevee and Meanwhile... Vileplume! in the Red, Green & Blue chapter.

It first appeared when Green was trying to sell more counterfeit Accessories by the riverside, but tried to escape on her stolen Wartortle but was stopped in her tracks by Red's Snorlax, but had managed to steal Red's Badges. Which Red later found out at the Celadon Hotel next to the Pokémon Center.

On the outskirts of town, Red and Blue crashed into each other, in the process switching Pokémon by accident. The Pokémon were reunited with their owners three days later after finding an Eevee that can change between each of its evolutions.

Like in the anime, Celadon City has a university at which Erika teaches in addition to her duties as Gym Leader.
