Main article: Celadon Mansion

Next to the city's Pokémon Center is the Celadon Mansion, where staff members of Game Freak rent a room from an old lady.

Game Corner

Main article: Rocket Game Corner

The southern part of the city caters to travelers and tourists. In addition to a hotel and a restaurant, the Game Corner is a popular spot. The citizens take pride in the city's beauty and think the casino is bad for their image.

The Rocket Game Corner sells very rare Pokémon such as Dratini and Porygon in exchange for coins.

In the Generation I games, the player must go into the underbelly of the Game Corner and defeat Team Rocket. In Generation II, it has been renamed the Celadon Game Corner and is no longer run by Team Rocket.

Perfume Shop

Attached to the Celadon Gym is a perfume shop, run by Erika herself.

In the anime, Ash expressed disgust at the fragrances and was banned from the perfume shop and thus the Gym.

Move Tutor

In Generation III, there is a move tutor who will teach Softboiled to certain Pokémon.

Trivia

Celadon City in Generation II.

Celadon City in Generation I.
  • In Generation I, there was an invisible PC in the hotel. This fact is explained by the close resemblance between the hotel and a Pokémon Center. This was less a glitch and more likely an oversight by the programmers who may have forgotten to remove the code to activate the PC at that particular point (though the sprite of the PC itself is no longer there).
