Cerulean City (Japanese: ハナダシティ Hanada City) is a seaside city located in northern Kanto. It is situated near a sea inlet to the north, with Saffron City to the south, and Mt. Moon to the west. It is home to Misty, the Cerulean City Gym Leader.

The city is one of only two cities in Kanto to have four different routes enter the city, the other being Saffron City. Cerulean is a mid-sized city with a few attractions including the Miracle Cycle Shop and the Berry Powder Man.

Places of interest

Bike Shop

Main article: Miracle Cycle

The Bike Shop has a store in Cerulean City, which sells Bicycles produced by the company. Designs range from a plain city bike to fast mountain bike; however the player only ever gets one: the Bicycle. It can be bought for PokémonDollar.png1,000,000, or exchanged for a Bike Voucher. However, as only PokémonDollar.png999,999 can be obtained at any time, there is no way to buy a Bicycle without a Bike Voucher. The Pokémon Fan Club Chairman in Vermilion City will give out his Bike Voucher, making this the only viable way to get the item.

In Generation II, the shop is closed due to the owner deciding to move the shop to Goldenrod City in the Johto region. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, however, the shop in Kanto is also open.

The name "Miracle Cycle" is limited strictly to the Japanese games, and in the English versions, the Miracle Cycle Shops are called just "Bike Shops" and no mention of Miracle Cycle is made at all.

Cerulean Cave

Main article: Cerulean Cave

On the outskirts of Cerulean City lies Cerulean Cave, also known as the Unknown Dungeon. It is said to be home to "horribly strong Pokémon". The player can capture Mewtwo at Level 70 in the Generation I, III, and IV games. Only trainers who compete and win in the Pokémon League at Indigo Plateau may enter due to the potency of the Pokémon in the cave. At the end of the cave lies Mewtwo, the only one of its species in the game.

Another addition in FireRed and LeafGreen lies in the fact that trainers are now required to further prove themselves before entering the cave, which is done by completing the quest on Sevii Islands and restoring the Network Machine to operational status.

In Generation II, the Dungeon has collapsed, but Mewtwo's Berserk Gene has been left behind. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, Cerulean Cave has not collapsed and Mewtwo can still be found inside.

Berry Powder man

In FireRed and LeafGreen, there is a man in a cottage who concocts a variety of medicine from Berry Powder and will exchange Berry Powder for rare and valuable items. When he is first visited, he gives the player the Powder Jar, and will ask the player to make some Berry Powder from the new machine that crushes berries in the Pokémon Center upstairs. There is also a sign on his wall that keeps a record of pressing-speed ranking the player achieves.

Gym Badge Man

In Generations I and III, there is a man in a cottage in the northwest corner of the city who will explain exactly what the effects are for each of the eight Indigo League Gym Badges. He also has a small backyard, where a Rare Candy can be found hidden under the flowers.

Cerulean Gym

Main article: Cerulean Gym

The Cerulean Gym is the official gym of Cerulean City. It is based on Template:Type2 Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Misty. Trainers that defeat her receive the Cascade Badge. Other known members include Swimmer Briana, Swimmer Parker, Swimmer Diana, Swimmer Luis, and Picnicker Diana. The Cerulean Gym is designed like an indoor swimming pool, with platforms above the water for the player to walk on. There are no puzzles to solve in this gym.
