Gen I Gen II Gen III

Fuchsia City (Japanese: セキチクシティ Sekichiku City) is a city located in southwest Kanto. Its most distinguishing features are the Safari Zone in the Generation I and III games and the Template:Type2 Gym. Koga is the Fuchsia City Gym Leader until his daughter Janine takes over in the Generation II and IV games.

Route 15 leads into the city from the east, Route 18 from the west, and the beach of Route 19 is in the south.

Bill's grandfather lives in Fuchsia City. In the anime, the Battle Pike is located near the city.

In Generation IV, Pal Park replaces the closed-down Safari Zone.

Places of interest

Safari Zone

Main article: Kanto Safari Zone

The Safari Zone is a special Pokémon preserve where Trainers can enter to capture certain types of Pokémon. It is owned by the warden.

For PokémonDollar.png500, the player will receive thirty Safari Balls. With a large area to cover, Trainers must plan out their destination so as to arrive in time to capture all the Pokémon they want.

When a wild Pokémon appears, no Pokémon may be sent out to battle it: catching Pokémon here, as in all Safari Zones, requires sheer luck. There are four options in the battle screen: Throw a Safari Ball, throw bait, throw a rock, and run away. Throwing bait makes a Pokémon less likely to run, but makes it harder to catch; while throwing a rock does the reverse, making it easier to catch but more likely to run.

During Generation I and Generation III, however, a sweepstakes is taking place to find a hidden house deep in the Safari Zone, called the Secret House. The winner of the sweepstakes receives HM03 (Surf). During Generation II and Generation IV the Safari Zone is not open. In its place (in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver only) is the Kanto Pal Park.

Safari Zone Warden

File:SafariWarden.png
Safari Zone Warden unable to speak clearly

Safari Zone Warden is the man in charge of the Kanto Safari Zone. His house is located on the south-eastern side of the city. He lives in a cottage next to the Pokémon Center. The locals of Fuchsia nicknamed the Warden "Slowpoke" because he has a vacant look similar to that seen on a Slowpoke. He's actually very knowledgeable about Pokémon, which should only be natural as taking care of the Safari Zone Pokémon is part of his job. He has a collection of rare Pokémon fossils. He has recently lost his false teeth in the Safari Zone and became unable to speak clearly. If the protagonist of the Kanto Generation I or Generation III games returns his teeth to him, he'll give them HM04 (Strength). Wild Pokémon appear in the city in a pond behind Safari Zone Warden's house.

He also runs a promotion in the Safari Zone. Pokémon Trainers who find the Secret House on the grounds are given HM03 (Surf). It's probable that he's friends with Koga, as the Gym Leader patrols the grounds of the Safari Zone to keep things safe. Koga's daughter, Janine, also trains just outside of the Safari Zone.

In Generation II, Baoba has left on a trip, so the Safari Zone has been shut down and most of the exclusive Pokémon have been moved to adjacent Routes. In Generation IV, however, the park's closing lead to the opening of a Pal Park. Wishing to maintain the safari game, Baoba opens another Zone in Johto.

Move deleter

A Move Deleter resides in Fuchsia City in Generation III. He is a very forgetful man that lives alone in a house next to the Pokémon Center in the city. For no charge he will make a Pokémon forget a move it knows, provided that the move is not the only move which that Pokémon knows. He is the only way for a Pokémon to forget HM moves such as Cut or Fly.

Pokémon Zoo

A Pokémon zoo is located in Fuchsia City, just outside the Safari Zone. However, it is closed, like the Safari Zone, in generations II and IV. There are Pokémon on display, including Chansey, Lapras, Voltorb, Kangaskhan, and Slowpoke. In addition, the Fossil that the player "shares" with the Super Nerd in Mt. Moon appears here as well. It will be a Kabuto if the player chose the Helix Fossil, and an Omanyte if the player chose the Dome Fossil.

Berries

In Generation IV a Juggler that is found near Pal Park will hand out three different types of berries each time a shard is traded. The types of berries given to the player depend on the shard's color. There is another Juggler that trade a shard for berries in Violet City.

Fuchsia Gym

Fuchsia Gym
Main article: Fuchsia Gym

The Fuchsia Gym is the official gym of Fuchsia City. It is based on Template:Type2 Pokémon. In Generations I and III, the Gym Leader is Koga. However, by Generation II, the Gym Leader's duties had been taken up by Koga's daughter, Janine. Trainers who are victorious at this gym may receive the Soul Badge. The Fuchsia Gym can be difficult to navigate, as both Koga and Janine have installed invisible walls. Janine has added a further step to the puzzle, as the other trainers in the gym all look like her. A field based on the gym also appears in Pokémon Stadium's Gym Leader Castle. If playing Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow on a normal Game Boy, the walls are invisible. However, when using a multi-colored palette on the Game Boy Color, these walls are exposed.

Differences among generations

Three years from Generation I and III to Generation II and IV, the city has changed quite dramatically. The Pokémon Zoo has closed down, transforming the northern half of the city into a grassy plain, only accessible by the use of Cut. There is also a small area in the northwestern part of the city, that contains a Burnt Berry. In Generation II, Warden Slowpoke has left on a trip, so the Safari Zone has been shut down and most of the exclusive Pokémon have been moved to adjacent routes. In Generation IV, the Safari Zone is replaced with Pal Park instead, with a replacement Safari Zone now found in Johto.

In the manga

In the Electric Tale of Pikachu manga

In the manga series The Electric Tale of Pikachu, Ash and Brock travel to Fuchsia City in The Human Race and the Pokémon Race. They arrive during the Nomads Independence Day festival, where they are reunited with Misty.

Ash participates in the Fuchsia Free-For-All Race on behalf of Lara Laramie.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Fuchsia City made a brief appearance at the end of Meanwhile... Vileplume! in the Red, Green & Blue chapter of the Pokémon Adventures manga.

Trivia

  • Its Japanese motto is セキチクは ピンク はなやかな いろ.
  • In Generation III only, Janine can be found behind one of the zoos saying she is training to become the Gym Leader. Her name in the Fame Checker is erroneously listed as "Charine" in the English versions.
  • Its motto before Generation IV was "Behold! It's Passion Pink!"
