Celadon Game Corner

The Celadon Game Corner is a casino located in the southeastern part of Celadon City, whose catchphrase is "The Playground for Everybody". It's one of the six Game Corners in the Pokémon world. It contains several games inside depending on the Generation, including slot machines, Card Flip, and Voltorb Flip, though the player needs a Coin Case to participate in any. Winning at these will award the player with coins he or she can exchange for prizes at the Prize Corner next door, including rare Pokémon such as Dratini and Porygon, as well as rare TMs and hold items. While it seems to be a popular spot for travelers and tourists, the citizens take pride in the city's beauty and think the casino is bad for its image.

In the games of Generation I and their remakes, this Game Corner is run by Team Rocket, called Rocket Game Corner and with the catchphrase "The Playground for Grown-ups". Underneath the casino, the Rocket Hideout in the Kanto region is located, with a staircase leading to it hidden in the upper-right corner. The player must gain access to the hideout in order to defeat Team Rocket and obtain the Silph Scope, by defeating a Rocket Grunt and pressing a hidden switch underneath the poster he was guarding. In the games of Generation II and their remakes, the casino is no longer run by Team Rocket and their hideout is inaccesible, but several characters make references to its existance three years prior.

In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen Versions, there is a machine in the corner of the building which takes a photo of the player's current Pokémon party to put on the back of the Trainer card.

Service desk

The service desk, not featured in international versions of HeartGold and SoulSilver, is attended by two women. The woman on the left welcomes players and tells them that coins can be exchanged for prizes next door, while the woman on the right sells coins at the following rates:

Games

Slot machines

Generation I

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.

Payouts
  • 7 7 7 - 300 coins
  • Three Bars - 100 coins
  • Three Poliwag - 15 coins
  • Three Diglett - 15 coins
  • Three Jigglypuff - 15 coins
  • Three cherries - 8 coins

Generation II

There are thirty slot machines in the Game Corner, with eight of them having people already seated at them.

One to three coins can be put in the slot machine each play. One coin will only count the center row across, two coins will count all three rows across, and three coins will count all three rows across as well as both diagonals. The reels stop spinning when the A button is pressed.

In the second generation games, several Golem will drop when two 7's are lined up. This improves the chances of lining up three 7's.

Payouts

Generation III

The only games available are slots, which people in the game say are rigged. There are thirty slot machines, with eight of them already occupied, one labeled "out of order", one labeled "reserved," and one where someone left their keys.

One to three coins can be put in the slot machine each play. One coin will only count the center row across, two coins will count all three rows across, and three coins will count all three rows across as well as both diagonals. The reels stop spinning when the A button is pressed.

The machine with the best odds is at the far left directly beneath the lady in that isle.

Payouts

Card flip

The card flip game is exclusive to Generation II. Players can pick either a card or a group of cards, similar in nature to Roulette, which was included in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. In playing card flip, players place bets on cards that may be flipped over. The deck used contains 24 cards: each one has both a number (between one and six) and a picture of a Pokémon (either Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Oddish, or Poliwag). Once twelve cards have been drawn, the deck will be reshuffled. Bets can be placed on a single card, on a single column, on a single row, on a pair of columns, or on a pair of rows.

Voltorb Flip

Much like the Goldenrod Game Corner, the Slot machines for the Celadon Game Corner has also been replaced by the Voltorb Flip for all versions of HeartGold and SoulSilver that had been released outside of Japan. Voltorb Flip was described in a pre-release review as "a cross between Picross and Minesweeper". It features a five-by-five grid of tiles, underneath of which are hidden numbers (which multiply the player's score if located) and Voltorb (which Selfdestruct and cause the player to lose all points gained in that round). The player can easily figure out where the Voltorb are located by using the clues provided: the number of Voltorb in each line and column are noted at the side of the screen.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Rocket Game Corner has appeared in Tauros the Tyrant, A Jynx Jinx and in A Tale of Ninetales in the Red, Green & Blue chapter. There is a switch that Team Rocket use to get to the Rocket Hideout. Red and Green watched ouside in the second appearance and used Green's Ditto as a decoy disguised as Mew.

In its next appearance Blue used loads of coins to exchange for an almost untamable Porygon (which later made Red and Blue "trade" Pokémon temporarily).

Trivia

  • In Generations I and III, the caretaker of Celadon Gym can be found playing the slot machines, instead of advising the player on how to defeat Erika.
  • In Generations II and IV, if the player examines the poster, the text will say that there's nothing there, a reference to the switch in Generation I.
