From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
The Celadon Department Store (Japanese: タマムシデパート Tamamushi Department Store) is the largest shop in Kanto, far larger than the average Poké Mart. Their slogan is "Find what you need at the Celadon Dept. Store!" The store is six stories tall, including the roof.
The sign outside the building has remained fundamentally the same throughout the generations, only with slight differences in grammar and spelling.
- Generation I

- Generation III

Floor 1: Service Counter
Here, a receptionist welcomes customers and directs them to a board that describes the store layout. This is where the deliveryman can be found.
Floor 2: Trainer's Market
This floor's motto is "Top-Grade Items for Trainers!" Lance is seen regularly on this floor buying capes.
Floor 3: TV Game Shop
Video games are sold on this floor. A man on this floor will give away TM18 (Counter) in Generation I. In Generation III, he becomes a Move Tutor who will teach the move to a capable Pokémon. In Generations II and IV, TMs are sold here instead.
Floor 4: Wise Man Gifts
A gift shop is on this floor. "Express Yourself with Gifts" is its slogan. In Generations I and III, a special featuring Pokémon evolution is currently on offer: evolutionary stones are for sale. In Generation IV, Falkner and Janine appear here on Mondays.
Floor 5: Drugstore
A pharmacy selling Pokémon stat-enhancing items is on this floor.
Generations I & II
Rooftop Square: Vending Machines
A picnic table and some vending machines are located on the roof. A thirsty Trainer will give TMs in exchange for one of the drinks. The TMs vary between generations. In Generation I, the Trainer trades TM13 (Ice Beam) for Fresh Water, TM48 (Rock Slide) for Soda Pop, and TM49 (Tri Attack) for Lemonade. In Generation III, the Trainer trades TM16 (Light Screen) for Fresh Water, TM20 (Safeguard) for Soda Pop, and TM33 (Reflect) for Lemonade.
In Generation I, some items can be received from people in the store. Crasher Wake also appears here in HeartGold and SoulSilver to give the player some Sinnoh starter Pokémon masks.
Differences between generations
- Although the Rooftop Square opens into the sky and is uncovered, Fly cannot be used to leave from the roof.
- In Pokémon Yellow, a boy on the fourth floor says that Copycat lives in Cerulean City; she is actually found in Saffron City.
- In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, after defeating the Elite Four, Falkner can be found on the fourth floor on Mondays talking to Janine. He will then exchange Pokégear phone numbers with the player for rematches.
- In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, Celadon Department Store is a separate save location, but Pokémon hatched here have the hatched location of "Celadon City". In Pokémon Emerald, the encounter location "Celadon Department Store" is read as "Special Area".
