Pokémon world locations

Abandoned Ship (Japanese: すてられぶね Abandoned Ship) is a location in Hoenn that was originally named the S.S. Cactus (Japanese: カクタスごう S.S. Cactus) before it half-sunk. It is located on Route 108 in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald and can only be accessed by Surfing. The second part of the ship can only be accessed by Diving and contains the Scanner.

Geography

The Abandoned Ship is mentioned by a character in the Oceanic Museum, saying that the model of the S.S. Anne reminds him of the Abandoned Ship. The ship contained a rare Scanner when it sank and it is now buried deep within the ship.

The Abandoned Ship is a tattered, old ship that looks like it could carry passengers and cargo when it was in operation. This old ship has many rusted holes, broken doors and items of furniture scattered around rooms. One room has a huge pool of water, in which the player can dive down to reach a lower floor. The Abandoned Ship has 20 accessible rooms including a captain's office and underwater rooms.

Many Trainers train their Pokémon in the Abandoned Ship, mostly Tubers and Sailors, but also a Young Couple, who battle the player in a Double Battle.

Obtaining the Scanner

After Dive is used to access the second part of the ship, the player will encounter five locked doors. As soon as a room is entered, a few spots in the room will gleam, showing that there is something there (either a key or "trash"). The gleams only happen just after the room is entered through the door. The player should check for keys on the gleaming spaces like other hidden items: by facing the space and pressing the 'A' button (standing on the space will not work). Once the key is found, the player can use the new key to access the next room.

In the anime

The Forsaken Ship in the anime

The abandoned ship, also known as the Forsaken Ship, appeared in Abandon Ship! of the anime.

Soon after Tommy's Mudkip evolved into Marshtomp and mastered Iron Tail, the duo went on the Abandoned Ship. However, a storm came which caused the ship to crash and Marshtomp got lost on there. Despite that, Tommy got rescued along with the other passengers. Marshtomp eventually evolved into Swampert during their time apart and believed that Tommy abandoned it. Since the crash, the ship became inhabited by Water-type.

Years later, Tommy returned to the Abandoned Ship to search for Marshtomp. Ash and his friends also arrived on the abandoned ship after the boat they rode on ran out of fuel and it just drifted them there. The group met Tommy while entering and helped him search for Marshtomp. During the search, Swampert slowly caught several people (including Team Rocket). As Swampert was about to catch Pikachu next, Pikachu caught sight of it and it jumped out of the water. The remaining people that weren't caught, Ash, Brock, and Tommy chased after Swampert and led them to the room where the people caught by Swampert and tied up by Spinarak's String Shot were. Tommy immediately recognized Swampert as the Marshtomp that was separated long ago. He got to reunite with Swampert with some convincing on Tommy's part. With Swampert reunited with Tommy and Team Rocket defeated, the duo took Ash and his friends to Slateport City.

In the manga

The Abandoned Ship in the Pokémon Adventures manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In the 16th volume of the Pokémon Adventures manga, both Ruby and Sapphire arrive at the decades-old Abandoned Ship on Route 108, where they battle Team Magma over an important Scanner.

Later, Wattson, Flannery, and Winona fight here against Kyogre and Team Aqua.

Trivia

  • Tuber Charlie is affected by a minor glitch which also affects Aroma Lady Rose and Gentleman Walter on their respective routes. Because he always approaches the player if he catches sight of him/her, he will walk right through a wall if it is in front of him. This glitch was, however, corrected in Spanish versions of Ruby and Sapphire, as well as Emerald.
  • If Tuber Charlie spots the player character on the "stairs" of the ship and challenges him/her to a battle, the battle terrain is that of a cave instead of a building.
  • This is the only location in Hoenn which requires Dive to navigate that is not a Route.
    • This trait is later shared by the Abyssal Ruins in Unova. However, unlike it, the Abandoned Ship only requires Dive to access a certain part of the location, while in the Abyssal Ruins, the move is required at all parts of the location.
