From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
The bedroom is the room that the player resides in within their own house. It is usually where the player first starts the game and where they end up after beating the Pokémon League. Most versions of the bedroom include a PC, a bed, and often the current Nintendo console connected to a television. Also, in most games, there is a Potion already stored in the PC's item storage.
In the games
- Main article: Player's House (Kanto)
In Red, Blue, and Yellow the bedroom has a PC, a bed, and a TV with a SNES hooked up to it. The PC can be used to access the player's item storage.
In FireRed and LeafGreen the bedroom is essentially a graphically enhanced version of the bedroom from Generation I. The only difference is that the SNES is replaced with a NES.
In Gold, Silver, and Crystal the bedroom has a TV, a radio tuned to channel 4.5 and a PC which can be used to access item and mail storage. The PC in this room has an additional function, allowing the player to customize the bedroom with a variety of decorations, such as Pokémon dolls, as well as beds, game systems, plants, and carpets. The Town Map hanging on the wall can also be replaced with one of several posters of different Pokémon.
Most decorations are received as gifts when using Mystery Gift with another player, although Mom may also purchase some if the player has allowed her to save their money. A gold trophy and silver trophy can also be obtained from Pokémon Stadium 2. The position of most decorations within the bedroom are fixed and cannot be altered; dolls, however, can be placed on either the left or right side of the table. It is also possible to put away all decorations, including the map and the bed. The bedroom and its decorations can be viewed in 3D in Pokémon Stadium 2 if a compatible game is inserted into the Transfer Pak.
In HeartGold and SoulSilver the room instead resembles the Sinnoh bedroom rather than the original Johto one. The PC can only be used to access mail storage, and the console in the room is a Wii. Unlike the original games, this bedroom cannot be customized. The three trophy decorations from Pokémon Platinum, earned upon achieving a win streak of 20, 50 and 100 in the Single Battle mode of the Battle Tower, can also be obtained in these games. Once awarded, they are automatically placed on the rug in the bedroom and cannot be moved or removed.
In Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald there are separate houses for the male and female player characters, although both houses including the bedroom are essentially mirrored versions of each other. Both bedrooms feature a TV, a Nintendo GameCube with a Game Boy Advance connected as controller, a town map, a notebook with basic control instructions and a clock on the wall, which serves as the only indicator of time in the game. There is also a PC in the room, which can be used to access item and mail storage and the decoration feature. This latter feature is more basic than the system present in Generation II; Pokémon dolls and cushions may be placed on the rug only, and up to 16 decorations may be placed. The dolls, cushions and other decorations can be placed in a secret base, where most of the customization options have shifted. In Ruby and Sapphire both bedrooms have red rugs, but in Emerald Brendan's room has a blue rug, while May's has a pink rug. A Pokémon doll will appear in the rival's bedroom at a certain point in the game.
Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald are some of the few games that do not begin with the player in their bedroom, instead beginning in the back of a moving van, having moved from the region of Johto to Hoenn.
In Pokémon Colosseum the player has no set home, as he lived in the Snagem Hideout prior to the events of the game.
In Pokémon XD the player's bedroom is located in the western part of Pokémon HQ Lab. The bed can be used to heal the player's Pokémon, and the player will appear in the room upon completion of the main storyline.
Pokémon XD is one of the few games that does not begin with the player in their bedroom, instead beginning with a single battle in the Battle Sim.
The bedroom in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum is the most basic of all the games. There is a TV, Wii and a PC that simply gives basic tips on how to play the game. A sign next to the stairs informs the player how to open the menu.
In Black and White the bedroom contains a Wii and a PC that does not serve any real function. The first two Pokémon battles of the game take place within the bedroom, causing the room to fall into a state of disarray. The player's mother will later happily tidy the room, restoring it to its original condition.
The bedroom cannot be custom decorated, however numerous decorations can be obtained. When the Unova and National Pokédexes are completed, their respective diplomas will automatically be delivered to the house and placed on a table in the upper part of the bedroom. Three trophies can also be obtained by achieving high win streaks on the Battle Subway, and will automatically be placed on the table in the lower part of the room. A trophy will be awarded upon achieving a win streak of 49+ battles on the Super Single, Super Double and Super Multi Lines respectively.
In Black 2 and White 2 the bedroom is not upstairs in a separate room, but simply partitioned from the main living area as the player's house is only single-story. There is a table and a dresser in the top part of the room where the diplomas and trophies will be displayed if they have been awarded.
- The player's bedroom in Black and White versions is the only place in the whole series to suffer damage from Pokémon battles. In all other battles which take place indoors or outdoors, the environment remains unscathed.
