Vermilion City (Japanese: クチバシティ Kuchiba City) is a city in Kanto. Situated near a sea inlet to the south, it contains a Pokémon Center, a Poké Mart, and serves as a popular sea port for ships such as the S.S. Anne.
The people in the town are careful about pollution, as they're afraid of an infestation of Grimer could occur if the seas were ever polluted.
There's a man using a Machop to build a house on cleared off land in the north side of the city. Interestingly, he's still not finished three years after he started in Generation II, as he does not have enough money to begin building.
The Kanto chapter of the Pokémon Fan Club is located in Vermilion.
Vermilion Harbor is a home port for many ships. The S.S. Anne sails around the world and returns to Vermilion once a year. The S.S. Aqua sails from Olivine City in Johto to Vermilion Harbor. The ten Seagallop Ferries sail regularly to all of the Sevii Islands.
Wild Pokémon appear in the sea around the city.
In the Pokémon Special manga
Vermilion is splitted into two main areas; the center city and the port. The Kanto Pokémon Fan Club headquarters is located in the center city and the S.S. Anne arrives once in a month in the port. Some of the citizens are PokéFans and sailors.
