Gen II

Mahogany Town (Japanese: チョウジタウン Chōji Town) is a small town in northern Johto. Its motto is "Welcome to the Home of the Ninja!", because of the ninjas that once resided in what eventually became the Team Rocket HQ. There are three exits out of town. To the west is Route 42, to the east is Route 44, and to the north is Route 43, which leads directly to the famous Lake of Rage.

Pokémon Trainers must come to Mahogany Town in order to win the Glacier Badge from Pryce, the Mahogany Gym Leader who specializes in Template:Type2 Pokémon. Mahogany is a quiet, relaxed town, and has no Poké Mart. Instead, there is a shop used by Team Rocket as a base in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal. After Team Rocket is defeated, it is converted into a store run by a little old lady.

When the town is first entered, there is a man blocking the East exit who wants to sell the player a RageCandyBar, although, in Generation IV, even after buying the RageCandyBar, the man will still not let the player pass, saying that the player needs to see the attractions in the town and the surrounding area. In order to exit to Route 44 and Ice Path and to remove the man from the exit, Team Rocket must be removed from the Team Rocket HQ as well as the Goldenrod Radio Tower.

Souvenir Shop

Lance discovers the secret staircase in Mahogany Town

There is no Poké Mart in Mahogany Town, only a small shop in the middle of town. It is a convenience store that sells supplies necessary for Pokémon training. The shop is run by a creepy old man, that seems very suspicious. However, the shop is actually just a cover up for a Team Rocket hideout, of which the stairway down to the hideout is concealed under a gold cabinet. After Team Rocket was run out of town, the old man abandoned the shop and is later inhabited by an old lady who sets up a small shop selling items that "nobody else has".

Inside the little store are tables of random assortments of items. On the northern wall stands a giant gold cabinet, which conceals a entryway to an underground base. When the cabinet was moved by Lance, the secret entrance was discovered, and remains uncovered when the old lady runs the store. The counter is located on the western side of the shop, where the shopkeeper serves various items. There is also a calculator and a radio on the counter of the shop.

Outside the shop, the old lady's granddaughter sits and promotes the store. She claims that her grandmother sells stuff that nobody else has, however, in Generation IV, nothing that her grandmother sells is unique to the shop. Only in Generation II does the old lady sell RageCandyBar, an unique item that can only be bought from a salesman blocking the way out of Mahogany before the events of Team Rocket and the old lady after they are ran out of town. While, inside the old lady, who makes whistling noises with her false teeth serve people with items similar to which a Poké Mart would sell.

Team Rocket HQ

Main article: Team Rocket HQ
The transmitter room

The Team Rocket HQ is the headquarters and a hideout for Team Rocket, located beneath the heart of Mahogany Town, and the entrance is located under a cabinet in the souvenir shop. The hideout was originally used as a base for ninjas that once resided here, giving the town the motto "Welcome to the Home of the Ninja!". However, after the ninjas left, Team Rocket used the headquarters as a power source to send out high-frequency sound waves, which disturbed the Pokémon in Mahogany Town, Lake of Rage, and other surrounding locations, and affected their evolution patterns. It is also the source of the problems occurring at the lake, involving the appearance of a Red Gyarados.

The upper floor of the base contains Persian statues with security cameras in their eyes—walking past one triggers two Team Rocket Grunts to battle the player until they deactivate the cameras using a switch in the center of the area. The far left hallway bypasses most of the Persian cameras, but the floor is booby-trapped with Koffing, Voltorb and Geodude, which battle the player and have a tendency to Selfdestruct. The second floor contains the generator room where six Electrode power the radio transmitter. The room is locked and requires a password to open. The third floor contains workstations, and a passage back onto the second floor leads to the rear of the hideout where the main office is located. The office is also locked and requires two passwords to open.

Mahogany Gym

Main article: Mahogany Gym

The Mahogany Gym is the official gym of Mahogany Town. It specializes in Template:Type2 Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Pryce. Trainers who defeat him receive the Glacier Badge. Pryce cannot be challenged the first time the player arrives in Mahogany Town. A man is blocking entry to the Gym: he will only leave once Team Rocket has been defeated at their headquarters and the Gyarados at the nearby Lake of Rage have been calmed.

In the Generation II, in order to get to the leader, one must correctly navigate an ice maze. While in Generation IV games, the maze has been completely changed with several rooms. After Leader Pryce is defeated, he will give the player the Glacier Badge and an Ice-type Technical Machine. This varies from generation to generation: TM16 (Icy Wind) will be given in Generation II, and TM07 (Hail) is given in Generation IV.

Demographics

Mahogany Town's population is 26, which makes it the third-smallest town in Johto.

Trivia

  • In Generation IV, the top of the radio transmitter can be seen next to the shop, poorly hidden in a fake tree. After defeating Team Rocket, the tree is removed and the transmitter is broken.
  • In Generation IV, in front of the eastern watch tower, the very top point of the tree in front is missing.
