Pokémon world locations

The National Park (Japanese: しぜんこうえん Nature Park) is a location in Johto. It is located to the north of Goldenrod City, between Route 35 and Route 36. The Bug-Catching Contest takes place there every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

Geography

The park is a separated into two main areas. The southern part contains several benches and a patch of flowers. Several people rest in this area, including a Teacher with a Persian that gives a Quick Claw to the player.

The northern part is circular and resembles a Poké Ball, with a fountain in the center, a semi-circular patch of tall grass to the south and another of long grass to the north, the first instance of this type of grass that is encountered in the games. Trainers can be battled only within these patches of grass, though there are no Trainers to battle during a Bug-Catching Contest.

In Generation II, most of the people talk about printing pictures off from the Pokédex, in order to promote the games' connectivity to the Game Boy Printer that was released two years before them. In Generation IV, they instead talk about using the Pokéwalker.

Trivia

  • A beta version of National Park was seen prior to the release of Pokémon Gold and Silver.
  • This is the only area in Generation II where it is impossible to hear the normal background music whilst riding a bicycle. This was changed in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, when the player is now allowed to cycle in each gate.
  • School Kid Jack is the only Trainer not to have his Pokémon's levels increase between Generation II and Generation IV.
