In Super Smash Bros.

Saffron City appears as a playable stage, specifically the roof of Silph Co., in Super Smash Bros. In the background as well, the text Gotta Catch 'em All! and Route 5 can be seen. The part of the mountain range consisting of mountains such as Mt. Moon, Cerulean Cave and Mt. Silver can be seen north of Cerulean City. Interestingly, a minor building with some blurry text can be seen. However, the text seems to start with a "F", which possibly may mean that it is the Fighting Dojo. Flying Pokémon, such as Pidgeot or Butterfree can sometimes been seen.

In the intro, Pikachu could be seen there, lying on a Poké Ball.
