Pokémon world locations

Mt. Moon (Japanese: おつきみやま Mt. Otsukimi) is a mountain located in northern Kanto, between Pewter City in the west and Cerulean City in the east. Climbing does not seem to be possible; to get past it, travelers always need to travel through the caves.

Mt. Moon is known for being one of the few places that wild Clefairy can be found and for its frequent meteor falls. The shards of meteorites that fall here become Moon Stones, thus giving it the name Mt. Moon. The mountain is also known for being home to Pokémon fossils. Brock digs for fossils here in his spare time.

MT. MOON
A mystical mountain that is known
for its frequent meteor falls.
The shards of stars that fall
here are known as MOON STONES.

Geography

Generation I

In Generation I, Mt. Moon is a large cave with many floors and connectors. The interior of the mountain is comprised of caves spanning three separate floors. As being the first cave the player will come across in Pokémon Red and Blue and Pokémon Yellow, Mt. Moon has a very long and complex structure. The first floor contains several normal trainers, while the basement floor contains members of Team Rocket who are trying to steal fossils from Mt. Moon to market them for money. On the player's way out to Cerulean City, the player will find two fossils, the Dome Fossil and the Helix Fossil, that a Super Nerd claims to have found first. Reaching a compromise, the Nerd lets the player choose a fossil and the Nerd will take the other. In Pokémon Yellow, after the player obtains one of the fossils, Jessie and James will appear for the first time and battle the player.

Generation II

In Generation II, Mt. Moon has dramatically decreased in size from Generation I. It now has only one base floor with a couple of connectors. On the heights of Mt. Moon is Mt. Moon Square, a ritual place for Clefairy to worship the moon. This is also a spot where the player's rival is training near the entrance and he will battle the player for the sixth time during the game.

When entering through the Pewter City entrance, there are two ways to go, in the eastern direction or in the southern direction. By traveling south and then east, the Cerulean City entrance can be found. However, by traveling east at the Pewter City entrance, the player will end up at the northern side of the summit of Mt. Moon, or "Mt. Moon Square." By traveling south at the Mt. Moon Square, and entering the southern cavern, there will be a ledge which can be jumped to instantly access the Cerulean City entrance.

Mt. Moon Square is an area in the heights of Mt. Moon. On Monday nights, Clefairy will dance and pray to a large Moon Stone in the square. By interrupting the dance and breaking the stone using Rock Smash, trainers can always find a Moon Stone below the rock. There is also a small shop here that sells a variety of goods.

Generation III

Mt. Moon in Generation III is much like the Mt. Moon in Generation I. The only difference between generations is the items found within the cave. The first floor contains several trainers. In the north-eastern corner of the first floor, there is a man who is excavating for fossils. This man is a friend of Brock and is a source of one of Brock's Fame Checker entries. The basement floor still contains members of Team Rocket who are still trying to steal fossils from Mt. Moon. As with Generation I, the player will find two fossils near the exit, the Dome Fossil and the Helix Fossil, that a Super Nerd claims to have found first. The player battles the Nerd, and upon victory, gets to take one fossil.

Generation IV

In Generation IV, Mt. Moon is similar to the Mt. Moon in Generation II. It has dramatically decreased in size and now has only one base floor with a couple of connectors. On the heights of Mt. Moon is Mt. Moon Square, a ritual place for Clefairy to worship the moon. The rival is training near the entrance when the player first arrives here, and will battle against him or her.

When entering through the Pewter City entrance, there are two ways to go, in the eastern direction or in the southern direction. By traveling south and then east, the Cerulean City entrance can be found. However, by traveling east at the Pewter City entrance, Trainer will end up at the northern side of the summit of Mt. Moon, or "Mt. Moon Square". By traveling south at the Mt. Moon Square, and entering the southern cavern, there will be a ledge which can be jumped to instantly access the Cerulean City entrance.

Mt. Moon Square is an area in the heights of Mt. Moon. On Monday nights, Clefairy will dance and pray around a pool in the square, in which the reflection of the full moon may be seen. If the player approaches and interrupts the dance, the Clefairy will flee, but one will drop a Moon Stone as it does so. There is also a small shop here that sells a small variety of goods. The shop is closed at night.

Oddly, the music used is that of Johto's caves, rather than the music that was used in Generations I-III, which appears in Rock Tunnel and Kanto's Underground Path.

Mt. Moon in the anime

Mt. Moon seems bigger in the anime than it does in the games, being clearly seen from as far away as Pallet Town.

Ash and his friends have visited Mt. Moon twice. Once was in Clefairy and the Moon Stone, when they helped Seymour protect the Clefairy from Team Rocket and watched many of them evolve into Clefable due to exposure to falling Moon Stones. Also, it was here in this episode that Brock captured a Zubat.

Later, in A Real Cleffa-Hanger, they returned to Mt. Moon, encountering the Clefairy and Clefable again, and helping the Fairy Pokémon reunite with a young Cleffa.

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

Mt. Moon is first visited in the Red, Green & Blue chapter in Raging Rhydon; however, it is first mentioned in the previous round, Gyarados Splashes In! by Professor Oak. The mountain consists of several interconnected caves, which are the home of wild Pokémon like Zubat, Diglett and Geodude. Its importance resides in being the place where the Moon Stone can be found. For this reason Red and Misty enter Mt. Moon. Here is where the first confrontation between Red and Team Rocket grunts takes place. Pika battled Koga's Rhyhorn, but Koga injected Rhyhorn with a syringe which mde it evolve into Rhydon. Pika hit a rock from the ceiling which sealed Team Rocket in. Mt. Moon is also where Red battles Bruno in the beginning of the Yellow saga.

Pokémon

There are lots of wild Pokémon, especially Template:Type2 Pokémon.

Electric Tale of Pikachu

Mt. Moon appears in the third chapter of Electric Tale of Pikachu, Clefairy Tale where Ash tries to catch a Clefairy in the Mt. Moon area. After three agonizing weeks in the wilderness, Ash and Pikachu accidentally follow a Clefairy into an occupied Onix nest. Ash and Pikachu are driven into the maze of tunnels the Onix has created. After rejecting using Fearow, Beedrill, or Pikachu, Ash decides to use his Butterfree. Butterfree uses Psychic, which weakens Onix, but also confuses it — causing it to thrash around and cause a cave-in that buries Pikachu and Ash under a pile of rocks.
