'''Cinnabar Island''' (Japanese: alternatively '''グレンタウン''' ''Guren Town'' and '''グレンじま''' ''Guren Island'') is a large island located off the southern coast of the [[Kanto]] region, south of [[Pallet Town]]. It is home to a large volcano. [[Blaine]] is the resident [[Gym Leader]], specializing in {{type2|Fire}} [[Pokémon]]. {{wp|Cinnabar}} is a kind of red mineral, associated with hot springs and volcanoes. There are no land paths to the island. Instead {{rt|20}} in the east and {{rt|21}} in the north are both [[water route|waterways]] through the ocean.

'''Cinnabar Island''' (referred to in Japanese as both '''グレンじま''' ''Guren Island'' and '''グレンタウン''' ''Guren Town'') is a large island located off the southern coast of the [[Kanto]] [[region]], south of [[Pallet Town]]. It is home to a large volcano. [[Blaine]] was once the resident [[Gym Leader]] specializing in {{type|Fire}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}, but as of [[Generation IV]], Cinnabar Island no longer has a Gym. {{wp|Cinnabar}} is a kind of red mineral, associated with hot springs and volcanoes. The island is connected to the mainland by two water routes: {{rt|20|Kanto}} in the east and {{rt|21|Kanto}} in the north, leading to [[Fuchsia City]] and Pallet Town, respectively.
   
The [[Generation I]] games reveal Cinnabar Island to be a technological mecca. The journals scattered about the abandoned {{ka|Pokémon Mansion}} suggest that {{p|Mewtwo}} was cloned here. The scientists at the [[Pokémon Lab]] have the ability to resurrect [[Pokémon]] from their [[fossil]]s. In [[Generation II]], three years after the events of [[Generation I]], a volcano erupted on the island, destroying everything, except for the [[Pokémon Center]].

The [[Generation I]] games reveal Cinnabar Island to be a technological mecca. The journals scattered about the abandoned {{ka|Pokémon Mansion}} reveal that {{p|Mewtwo}} was created here. The scientists at the [[Cinnabar Lab]] (known as the Pokémon Lab prior to [[Generation VII]]) have the ability to resurrect Pokémon from their [[Fossil]]s. Two years after the events of Generations I and {{gen|III}}, as seen in [[Generation II|Generations II]] and IV, a volcano erupted on the island, destroying everything. The only building present is a [[Pokémon Center]], with the Cinnabar Gym having been relocated to the [[Seafoam Islands]].

In the Japanese versions, Cinnabar Island has two distinctive names: {{j|グレンじま}} ''Guren Island'' and {{j|グレンタウン}} ''Guren Town''.
   
The Pokémon Mansion is a decrepit, burned-down mansion on Cinnabar Island. It got its name because a famous Pokémon Researcher once lived there. The Pokémon Mansion has four different floors. Doors can be unlocked in the Mansion by pressing switches hidden in {{p|Mewtwo}} statues. To access the Cinnabar Island [[Gym]] in [[Generation I]] and [[Generation III]], the main character has to enter the mansion and find the {{DL|List of key items in Generation I|Secret Key}} to unlock the door of the Gym. Many burglars come to the mansion, trying to steal valuable items that may have been lost in the wreckage, challenging the player to a battle when spotted. Amongst the rubble and wreckage is information that the scientists who once worked there obtained a {{p|Mew}} and impregnated it with the genetically altered {{p|Mewtwo}}, who destroyed the mansion in its escape.

In an old [[Pokémon.com]] summary, Cinnabar Island was called by its Japanese name of Guren Island (transliterated as '''Glen Island''').<ref>[https://web.archive.org/web/19991012205011/http://pokemon.com/cartoons/lastten.html Pokémon World - Cartoons] (archive)</ref>

In the [[Generation I]] games, it is referred to as simply "Guren" ({{j|グレン}}) on the [[Town Map]] just like other cities and towns. The island's signpost calls it Guren Town, whereas the [[Cinnabar Gym]] signpost calls it Guren Island.
  +
  +
In {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}, the situation is the same. Additionally, the Town Map calls it Guren Island due to it being its location ID but its guide about the {{ka|Pokémon Mansion}} calls it Guren Town instead.
  +
  +
===Generations II and IV===
  +
In the [[Generation II]] games and {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, the island's signpost, the Cinnabar Gym signpost and its relocation notice call it Guren Town. The location ID is Guren Island in Generation II and Guren Town in HeartGold and SoulSilver.

The Pokémon Mansion is a decrepit, burned-down mansion on Cinnabar Island. It got its name because a famous Pokémon Researcher once lived there. The Pokémon Mansion has four different floors. Doors can be unlocked in the Mansion by pressing switches hidden in {{p|Mewtwo}} statues. To access the Cinnabar Island [[Gym]] in [[Generation I|Generations I]] and {{gen|III}}, the main character has to enter the mansion and find the {{ka|Secret Key}} to unlock the door of the Gym. Many {{tc|burglar}}s come to the mansion, trying to steal valuable items that may have been lost in the wreckage, challenging the {{player}} to a battle when spotted. Amongst the rubble and wreckage is information that the scientists who once worked there obtained a {{p|Mew}} and impregnated it with the genetically altered {{p|Mewtwo}}, who destroyed the mansion in its escape.
   
The Pokémon Lab is a laboratory located on Cinnabar Island. It was founded by [[Dr. Fuji]] and appears in the [[Generation I]] games and their [[Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen Versions|remakes]]. The first room of the Pokémon Lab has two people who will offer to [[trade]] Pokémon. The old man will offer his {{p|Electrode}} for a {{p|Raichu}}, and the girl will want to trade her {{p|Tangela}} for a {{p|Venonat}}. In the second room, there is [[move tutor|a man]] who will teach {{m|Metronome}} once to one of the {{player}}'s Pokémon; in Generation I, he gives away {{TM|35|Metronome}}. In the third room, there is a scientist who will revive the [[fossil]]s the player obtained at [[Mt. Moon]] and from the [[Pewter City]] Museum and a person who will trade his {{p|Seel}} for a {{p|Ponyta}}. In [[Silph Co.]], there is a Pokémon Report stating that Pokémon Lab created {{p|Porygon}}.

The Cinnabar Lab, known as the Pokémon Lab prior to [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!|Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]], is a laboratory located on Cinnabar Island. It was founded by [[Mr. Fuji|Dr. Fuji]] and appears in the Generation I games and their [[remake]]s. In Generations I and III, the west room of the Cinnabar Lab has two people who will offer to [[trade]] Pokémon. The old man will offer his {{p|Electrode}} for a {{p|Raichu}}, and the girl will want to trade her {{p|Tangela}} for a {{p|Venonat}}. In the center room, there is [[Move Tutor|a man]] who will teach {{m|Metronome}} once to one of the player's Pokémon; in Generation I, he gives away {{TM|35|Metronome}}. In the east room, there is a scientist who will revive the [[Fossil]]s the player obtained at [[Mt. Moon]] and from the [[Pewter City]] Museum and a person who will trade his {{p|Seel}} for a {{p|Ponyta}}. In [[Silph Co.]], there is a Pokémon Report stating that Cinnabar Lab created {{p|Porygon}}.
   
 
===Volcano===
 
===Volcano===
There is a volcano on Cinnabar Island which gives it its name. Strangely enough, the volcano that appears on Cinnabar Island cannot be accessed to, or has never been seen or mentioned on the island, in [[Generation I]] and in [[Generation III]]. But in the {{pkmn|anime}}, the volcano is a prominent feature of the island, and is where the Cinnabar Gym is located and split into two sections; one is inside of the volcano, and has an arena suspended over the lava inside one of the chambers, the other arena is in the top crater of the volcano itself. In [[Generation II]] and {{gen|IV}}, three years after the events of [[Generation I]], the Volcano erupted on the island destroying everything, except for the [[Pokémon Center]] which still stands. What appeared to be a rain-filled crater could also be seen in {{game2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}}. In {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, the exterior of the volcano can be scaled with {{m|Rock Climb}}.

Judging by the maps of all four [[generation]]s, the volcano originated where the Gym once stood.

The Cinnabar Gym is the official [[Gym]] of Cinnabar Island, it is based on {{type|Fire}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} and the [[Gym Leader]] is [[Blaine]]. {{pkmn|Trainer}}s who defeat him receive the {{Badge|Volcano}}. The player is unable to enter the Gym at once; only when they obtain the {{ka|Secret Key}} from the {{ka|Pokémon Mansion}} can they unlock the door to the Gym. The Cinnabar Gym is a high-tech affair featuring a series of sealed doors. Trivia questions about various Pokémon must be answered to unseal the doors. However, when the player fails to answer a trivia question correctly, a battle with either a Burglar or Super Nerd results, an alternative to unsealing the doors. In Generations II and IV, Blaine's original Gym on Cinnabar Island was destroyed by a volcanic eruption. This forced him to relocate to a cave in the [[Seafoam Islands]].

==Differences between generations==
  +
Cinnabar Island has changed dramatically between [[Generation]]s {{Gen|I}} and {{Gen|II}} as the city has been totally replaced by a large erupted volcano, removing everything except for the [[Pokémon Center]]. After the eruption, the [[Gym]] was relocated to the [[Seafoam Islands]]. {{ga|Blue}} can be first found at Cinnabar Island, because he was in a bad mood and decided to take a stroll there. In [[Generation III]], there are a few changes with the visual design, as the {{ka|Pokémon Mansion}} and [[Cinnabar Lab|Pokémon Lab]] are slightly larger along with more sandy beach areas. The first and last questions in the Cinnabar Gym have also been changed slightly for clarification. In [[Generation IV]], the island stays much the same as [[Generation II]], although the volcano is now climbable by {{m|Rock Climb}}.
  +
  +
==In the spin-off games==
  +
===In Pokémon Pinball===
  +
In {{g|Pinball}}, Cinnabar Island appears on the Red and Blue tables; catchable Pokémon include {{p|Growlithe}}, {{p|Ponyta}}, {{p|Grimer}}, {{p|Koffing}}, {{p|Tangela}}, {{p|Magmar}}, {{p|Omanyte}}, {{p|Kabuto}} and {{p|Aerodactyl}}.
  +
  +
===In Pokkén Tournament===
  +
While Cinnabar Island does not appear in [[Pokkén Tournament]], when fighting [[Shadow Mewtwo]], sometimes [[Nia]] will mention having read the "[[Pokémon Mansion journals|Cinnabar Island docs]]" on Mewtwo. However, the words "Cinnabar Island" aren't in text, and thus are only noticeable if her voice is turned on.

===In the main series===
Cinnabar Island is considered a mere beach resort in the {{pkmn|anime}}. Many {{pkmn|Trainer}}s skip the island entirely or go there for a break from {{pkmn|battle|battling}}. [[Blaine]] runs a hotel for tourists and wears a hippie disguise to hide his real identity as [[Gym Leader]]. His [[Gym]] is located inside of the volcano. Aside from inside of the Pokémon Mansion, wild Pokémon also appear in the ocean around the island.

[[File:Cinnabar Island Overview anime.png|thumb|220px|Cinnabar Island in the anime]]
  +
Cinnabar Island is considered a mere beach resort town famous for its hot springs in the {{pkmn|anime}}. A bird's-eye view shows the majority of the island is dense forest with the volcano at its center, while the township only occupies a small portion. It lies close to the port and the ocean, featuring many hotels, souvenir shops, restaurants, and food stalls. Many {{pkmn|Trainer}}s skip the island entirely or go there for a break from {{pkmn|battle|battling}}. [[Blaine]] points out his dilapidated [[Gym]] to {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}}, blaming the roaring tourist trade for its closure. Blaine runs the Big Riddle Inn, a hotel with a clock tower, and bath house with separate male- and female-exclusive hot springs for tourists. He wears a hippie disguise to hide his real identity as [[Gym Leader]]. His Gym is located inside of the volcano.
   
The Cinnabar Gym has two sections in the {{pkmn|anime}}; one is inside of the volcano, and has an arena suspended over the lava inside one of the chambers. The other arena is in the top crater of the volcano itself.
+
In ''[[EP058|Riddle Me This]]'', Ash and his friends foiled Team Rocket's latest exploits at the [[Cinnabar Lab|Pokémon Lab]]. Ash was also trying to locate the Gym so he could challenge Blaine. The riddle man eventually informed Ash that Blaine built another Gym inside of a volcano. Thanks to [[Misty's Togepi]] jumping on one of the hot spring taps, Ash and his friends discovered the new Cinnabar Gym; it was connected to Blaine's Big Riddle Inn via a secret tunnel. It has two sections; one is inside of the volcano, and has an arena suspended over the lava inside one of the chambers. The other arena is in the top crater of the volcano itself, and features rock pillars above the lava flow.
   
In ''[[EP058|Riddle Me This]]'', {{Ash}} was trying to locate the gym so he could challenge Blaine. He was told by a man who liked telling riddles that the gym disappeared when Cinnabar Island became a tourist trap. However, the man eventually told Ash that Blaine built another gym inside of a volcano. When Ash and {{Ashfr|the others}} went in, they learned that the riddler was actually Blaine in disguise. Ash and Blaine battled, but Ash had a series of misfortunes. The first was his {{AP|Squirtle}} being defeated by Blaine's {{p|Ninetales}}. Then, his {{AP|Charizard}} refused to listen to him. Finally, {{AP|Pikachu}} received severe burns caused by [[Blaine's Magmar]] and its powerful {{m|Fire Blast}}. Ash called off the battle, not wanting Pikachu to get injured. In ''[[EP059|Volcanic Panic]]'', after [[Team Rocket]] had almost destroyed Blaine's gym (and Cinnabar Island as a result), he agreed to a rematch on his alternate battlefield on top of the volcano. This time, Ash was able to defeat Blaine with the help of his Charizard and its {{m|Seismic Toss}}.

This time, Ash was able to defeat Blaine with the help of his Charizard and its {{m|Seismic Toss}}, earning himself the {{badge|Volcano}}.
   
==Differences between generations==
+
In ''[[EP060|Beach Blank-Out Blastoise]]'', at the request of a {{pkmn2|wild}} {{p|Wartortle}}, Ash and his friends made their way via boat to an unnamed island near Cinnabar Island, inhabited exclusively by a {{p|Blastoise}} and its pre-evolutions. They helped to awaken the entire colony after {{an|Jigglypuff}} was lodged into one of Blastoise's cannons while swimming and rescued them from being captured by Team Rocket.
Cinnabar Island has changed dramatically between [[Generation I]] and [[Generation II]] as the city has been totally replaced by a large erupted volcano, removing everything except for the [[Pokémon Center]]. After the eruption, the [[Gym]] was relocated to the [[Seafoam Islands]]. {{ga|Blue}} can be first found at Cinnabar, because he was bored and decided to take a stroll there. In [[Generation III]], there are a few changes with the visual design, as the {{ka|Pokémon Mansion}} and [[Pokémon Lab]] are slightly larger along with more sandy beach areas. The first and last questions in the Cinnabar Gym have also been changed slightly for clarification.

===In Pokémon Origins===

Cinnabar Island was visited by {{OBP|Red|Origins}} in ''[[PO03|File 3: Giovanni]]''. During his visit, he first explored the {{ka|Pokémon Mansion}}, where he discovered a [[Pokémon Mansion journals|journal]] that would [[PO04|later]] help him identify [[Cerulean Cave]]'s mysterious Pokémon as {{p|Mewtwo}}. After exploring the Mansion, Red challenged Blaine to a Gym battle and won, earning the Volcano Badge.
   
Cinnabar Island debuted in [[PS026|Holy Moltres]] in the [[Red, Green & Blue chapter (Adventures)|Red, Green & Blue Chapter]], where [[Team Rocket]] with there {{p|Gengar}} and {{p|Magnemite}} where trying to hunt down [[Blaine]] because he had quit Team Rocket. He used his {{p|Arcanine}} and {{p|Rapidash}}. When he saw {{adv|Red}} he saved him from the cliff just as Team Rocket let out the {{p|Moltres}} they had captured earlier. Blaine told him to use his Rapidash to get to his lab and restore the [[Old Amber]].

Cinnabar Island debuted in ''[[PS026|Holy Moltres]]'', where [[Team Rocket]] was trying to hunt down [[Blaine]] on the island because of him leaving them. When Team Rocket threatened {{adv|Red}}, Blaine showed himself and rescued him. When they tried to escape, Team Rocket sent {{DL|Legendary birds (Adventures)|Moltres}} after them. As Blaine knew that they needed a {{t|Flying}} Pokémon to fight Moltres effectively, he sent Red to [[Cinnabar Lab|his secret laboratory]] to revive his [[Old Amber]]. Thanks to the [[Aero]]dactyl revived by Red, Team Rocket and Moltres were forced to retreat.
   
Later when Red came back he was joined with an [[Aero|Aerodactyl]] that he had restored. And they Defeated Moltres and Team Rocket ran away.
+
===={{chap|Yellow}}====
  +
In ''[[PS064|Putting It on the Line...Against Arcanine]]'', {{adv|Yellow}} arrived at Cinnabar Island from the [[Seafoam Islands]]. At the top of the volcano, she saw Blaine training with {{tc|Camper}} [[Evan]], after which he invited her to his laboratory. They soon received emergency messages from all over [[Kanto]], revealing that the [[Elite Four]] had started their attack on the region. Both Blaine and Yellow then departed to launch a direct assault against the Elite Four's base at [[Cerise Island]].
  +
  +
===={{chap|FireRed & LeafGreen}}====
  +
Cinnabar Island made a brief appearance in ''[[PS295|Double Down Deoxys]]'', when Camper Evan and {{tc|Super Nerd}} Miles visited Blaine at his laboratory. Due to the mark left on his arm by {{adv|Mewtwo}}'s cells, Blaine was able to sense Mewtwo's agitation, speculating that it was due to {{adv|Mew}} heading back to the Kanto mainland from [[Faraway Island]].
  +
  +
===={{chap|Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon}}====
  +
In the {{chap|Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon}}, {{adv|Sun}} was revealed to have been born and raised at Cinnabar Island before he moved to [[Alola]].
   
 
==Trivia==
 
==Trivia==
* Its Japanese motto is {{tt|グレンの あかは じょうねつの いろ|Guren's red is the color of passion}}.
+
* It was long believed that Cinnabar Island once was the tip of a {{wp|stratovolcano}} or a {{wp|shield volcano}} since no mountain was visible on the island for the first three [[generation]]s. This was changed in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}} where a mountain stratovolcano is actually there and can be reached by using {{m|Rock Climb}}, indicating that lack of diverse scenery in the past games was the reason for no mountain being there. However, all map artworks throughout the generations have shown the volcano to be there.

+
* Cinnabar Island has many glitches associated with it in the [[Generation I]] games, such as the [[old man glitch]], due to programming oversights on the island's coast. There is also {{DL|List of glitches in Generation I|Man on roof|a trick to see a man on the roof}} of the [[Cinnabar Gym|Gym]]. However, both of these glitches were fixed in some regional versions.
* Cinnabar Island has many glitches associated with it in the [[Generation I]] games, such as [[Missingno.]] There is also a trick to see a man on the roof of the [[Cinnabar Gym|Gym]].
+
* Cinnabar Island and [[Vermilion City]] are named after the same color in the English versions of the Pokémon games but not in the Japanese versions, since {{wp|crimson}} ({{j|{{jwp|紅蓮|グレン}}}} ''guren'', "crimson lotus") refers to a shade of red while {{wp|vermilion}} ({{j|{{jwp|朽葉|クチバ}}}} ''kuchiba'', "decayed leaves") refers to a shade of orange. {{wp|Cinnabar}} is an orange-red mineral that produces the orange-red pigment vermilion. This explains why Cinnabar Island is colored red while Vermilion City is colored orange in the [[Generation I]] games when played with the [[Super Game Boy]] enhancements enabled on a compatible system or with the [[Game Boy Color]] enhancements available in the international releases of {{game|Yellow}} (including the [[Virtual Console]] release).
* Some of the [[wild Pokémon]] found in the mansion in Generation I have been moved to [[Knot Island]] in Generation III, such as {{p|Ponyta}} and {{p|Magmar}}.
+
* It is the southernmost location in both [[Kanto]] and [[Johto]] that the player can {{m|Fly}} to.
* Cinnabar Island is the only area with a [[Pokémon Gym]] whose name ends in neither "City" nor "Town".

Cinnabar Island (referred to in Japanese as both グレンじま Guren Island and グレンタウン Guren Town) is a large island located off the southern coast of the Kanto region, south of Pallet Town. It is home to a large volcano. Blaine was once the resident Gym Leader specializing in Fire-type Pokémon, but as of Generation IV, Cinnabar Island no longer has a Gym. Cinnabar is a kind of red mineral, associated with hot springs and volcanoes. The island is connected to the mainland by two water routes: Route 20 in the east and Route 21 in the north, leading to Fuchsia City and Pallet Town, respectively.

The Generation I games reveal Cinnabar Island to be a technological mecca. The journals scattered about the abandoned Pokémon Mansion reveal that Mewtwo was created here. The scientists at the Cinnabar Lab (known as the Pokémon Lab prior to Generation VII) have the ability to resurrect Pokémon from their Fossils. Two years after the events of Generations I and III, as seen in Generations II and IV, a volcano erupted on the island, destroying everything. The only building present is a Pokémon Center, with the Cinnabar Gym having been relocated to the Seafoam Islands.

Names

050Diglett.png This section is incomplete.
Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Check other in-game references.

In the Japanese versions, Cinnabar Island has two distinctive names: グレンじま Guren Island and グレンタウン Guren Town.

In an old Pokémon.com summary, Cinnabar Island was called by its Japanese name of Guren Island (transliterated as Glen Island).[1]

Generations I and III

In the Generation I games, it is referred to as simply "Guren" (グレン) on the Town Map just like other cities and towns. The island's signpost calls it Guren Town, whereas the Cinnabar Gym signpost calls it Guren Island.

In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, the situation is the same. Additionally, the Town Map calls it Guren Island due to it being its location ID but its guide about the Pokémon Mansion calls it Guren Town instead.

Generations II and IV

In the Generation II games and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the island's signpost, the Cinnabar Gym signpost and its relocation notice call it Guren Town. The location ID is Guren Island in Generation II and Guren Town in HeartGold and SoulSilver.

Places of interest

Pokémon Mansion

Main article: Pokémon Mansion (Kanto)

The Pokémon Mansion is a decrepit, burned-down mansion on Cinnabar Island. It got its name because a famous Pokémon Researcher once lived there. The Pokémon Mansion has four different floors. Doors can be unlocked in the Mansion by pressing switches hidden in Mewtwo statues. To access the Cinnabar Island Gym in Generations I and III, the main character has to enter the mansion and find the Secret Key to unlock the door of the Gym. Many burglars come to the mansion, trying to steal valuable items that may have been lost in the wreckage, challenging the player to a battle when spotted. Amongst the rubble and wreckage is information that the scientists who once worked there obtained a Mew and impregnated it with the genetically altered Mewtwo, who destroyed the mansion in its escape.

Cinnabar Lab

Main article: Cinnabar Lab

The Cinnabar Lab, known as the Pokémon Lab prior to Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, is a laboratory located on Cinnabar Island. It was founded by Dr. Fuji and appears in the Generation I games and their remakes. In Generations I and III, the west room of the Cinnabar Lab has two people who will offer to trade Pokémon. The old man will offer his Electrode for a Raichu, and the girl will want to trade her Tangela for a Venonat. In the center room, there is a man who will teach Metronome once to one of the player's Pokémon; in Generation I, he gives away TM35 (Metronome). In the east room, there is a scientist who will revive the Fossils the player obtained at Mt. Moon and from the Pewter City Museum and a person who will trade his Seel for a Ponyta. In Silph Co., there is a Pokémon Report stating that Cinnabar Lab created Porygon.

Volcano

There is a volcano on Cinnabar Island which gives it its name. In Generation I and Generation III, the volcano that appears on Cinnabar Island cannot be accessed. In the anime, the volcano is a prominent feature of the island, and is where the Cinnabar Gym is located, split into two sections. One is inside of the volcano, and has an arena suspended over the lava inside one of the chambers, while the other is atop the volcano's crater. In Generation II and IV, three years after the events of Generation I and III, the volcano erupted on the island, destroying everything, and only the Pokémon Center has been rebuilt. What appeared to be a rain-filled crater could also be seen in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, the exterior of the volcano can be scaled with Rock Climb. Judging by the maps of all four generations, the volcano originated where the Gym once stood.

Cinnabar Gym

Main article: Cinnabar Gym

The Cinnabar Gym is the official Gym of Cinnabar Island, it is based on Fire-type Pokémon and the Gym Leader is Blaine. Trainers who defeat him receive the Volcano Badge. The player is unable to enter the Gym at once; only when they obtain the Secret Key from the Pokémon Mansion can they unlock the door to the Gym. The Cinnabar Gym is a high-tech affair featuring a series of sealed doors. Trivia questions about various Pokémon must be answered to unseal the doors. However, when the player fails to answer a trivia question correctly, a battle with either a Burglar or Super Nerd results, an alternative to unsealing the doors. In Generations II and IV, Blaine's original Gym on Cinnabar Island was destroyed by a volcanic eruption. This forced him to relocate to a cave in the Seafoam Islands.

Demographics

Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow

Cinnabar Island has a population of 33.

Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal

Cinnabar Island has a population of 6, all residing in the Pokémon Center. This is because every other building was destroyed by a volcanic eruption.

Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen

In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, before the destruction of the island in the Generation II and Generation IV games, Cinnabar Island has a population of 36.

Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

Cinnabar Island has a population of nine, making it one of the smallest towns in the Pokémon world. The volcano eruption destroyed most of the island, with the Pokémon Center being the only building remaining.

Differences between generations

Cinnabar Island has changed dramatically between Generations I and II as the city has been totally replaced by a large erupted volcano, removing everything except for the Pokémon Center. After the eruption, the Gym was relocated to the Seafoam Islands. Blue can be first found at Cinnabar Island, because he was in a bad mood and decided to take a stroll there. In Generation III, there are a few changes with the visual design, as the Pokémon Mansion and Pokémon Lab are slightly larger along with more sandy beach areas. The first and last questions in the Cinnabar Gym have also been changed slightly for clarification. In Generation IV, the island stays much the same as Generation II, although the volcano is now climbable by Rock Climb.

In the spin-off games

In Pokémon Pinball

In Pokémon Pinball, Cinnabar Island appears on the Red and Blue tables; catchable Pokémon include Growlithe, Ponyta, Grimer, Koffing, Tangela, Magmar, Omanyte, Kabuto and Aerodactyl.

In Pokkén Tournament

While Cinnabar Island does not appear in Pokkén Tournament, when fighting Shadow Mewtwo, sometimes Nia will mention having read the "Cinnabar Island docs" on Mewtwo. However, the words "Cinnabar Island" aren't in text, and thus are only noticeable if her voice is turned on.

In the anime

In the main series

Cinnabar Island in the anime

Cinnabar Island is considered a mere beach resort town famous for its hot springs in the anime. A bird's-eye view shows the majority of the island is dense forest with the volcano at its center, while the township only occupies a small portion. It lies close to the port and the ocean, featuring many hotels, souvenir shops, restaurants, and food stalls. Many Trainers skip the island entirely or go there for a break from battling. Blaine points out his dilapidated Gym to Ash and his friends, blaming the roaring tourist trade for its closure. Blaine runs the Big Riddle Inn, a hotel with a clock tower, and bath house with separate male- and female-exclusive hot springs for tourists. He wears a hippie disguise to hide his real identity as Gym Leader. His Gym is located inside of the volcano.

In Riddle Me This, Ash and his friends foiled Team Rocket's latest exploits at the Pokémon Lab. Ash was also trying to locate the Gym so he could challenge Blaine. The riddle man eventually informed Ash that Blaine built another Gym inside of a volcano. Thanks to Misty's Togepi jumping on one of the hot spring taps, Ash and his friends discovered the new Cinnabar Gym; it was connected to Blaine's Big Riddle Inn via a secret tunnel. It has two sections; one is inside of the volcano, and has an arena suspended over the lava inside one of the chambers. The other arena is in the top crater of the volcano itself, and features rock pillars above the lava flow.

When Ash and his friends went in, they learned that the riddle man was actually Blaine in disguise. Ash and Blaine battled, but Ash had a series of misfortunes. The first was his Squirtle being defeated by Blaine's Ninetales. Then, his Charizard refused to listen to him. Finally, Pikachu received severe burns caused by Blaine's Magmar and its powerful Fire Blast. Ash called off the battle, not wanting Pikachu to fall in the lava. In Volcanic Panic, after Team Rocket had almost destroyed Blaine's Gym (and Cinnabar Island as a result), he agreed to a rematch on his alternate battlefield on top of the volcano. This time, Ash was able to defeat Blaine with the help of his Charizard and its Seismic Toss, earning himself the Volcano Badge.

In Beach Blank-Out Blastoise, at the request of a wild Wartortle, Ash and his friends made their way via boat to an unnamed island near Cinnabar Island, inhabited exclusively by a Blastoise and its pre-evolutions. They helped to awaken the entire colony after Jigglypuff was lodged into one of Blastoise's cannons while swimming and rescued them from being captured by Team Rocket.

In Pokémon Origins

Cinnabar Island was visited by Red in File 3: Giovanni. During his visit, he first explored the Pokémon Mansion, where he discovered a journal that would later help him identify Cerulean Cave's mysterious Pokémon as Mewtwo. After exploring the Mansion, Red challenged Blaine to a Gym battle and won, earning the Volcano Badge.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Cinnabar Island in Pokémon Adventures

Red, Green & Blue chapter

Cinnabar Island debuted in Holy Moltres, where Team Rocket was trying to hunt down Blaine on the island because of him leaving them. When Team Rocket threatened Red, Blaine showed himself and rescued him. When they tried to escape, Team Rocket sent Moltres after them. As Blaine knew that they needed a Flying Pokémon to fight Moltres effectively, he sent Red to his secret laboratory to revive his Old Amber. Thanks to the Aerodactyl revived by Red, Team Rocket and Moltres were forced to retreat.

Yellow chapter

In Putting It on the Line...Against Arcanine, Yellow arrived at Cinnabar Island from the Seafoam Islands. At the top of the volcano, she saw Blaine training with Camper Evan, after which he invited her to his laboratory. They soon received emergency messages from all over Kanto, revealing that the Elite Four had started their attack on the region. Both Blaine and Yellow then departed to launch a direct assault against the Elite Four's base at Cerise Island.

FireRed & LeafGreen chapter

Cinnabar Island made a brief appearance in Double Down Deoxys, when Camper Evan and Super Nerd Miles visited Blaine at his laboratory. Due to the mark left on his arm by Mewtwo's cells, Blaine was able to sense Mewtwo's agitation, speculating that it was due to Mew heading back to the Kanto mainland from Faraway Island.

Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon chapter

In the Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon chapter, Sun was revealed to have been born and raised at Cinnabar Island before he moved to Alola.

Trivia

  • It was long believed that Cinnabar Island once was the tip of a stratovolcano or a shield volcano since no mountain was visible on the island for the first three generations. This was changed in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver where a mountain stratovolcano is actually there and can be reached by using Rock Climb, indicating that lack of diverse scenery in the past games was the reason for no mountain being there. However, all map artworks throughout the generations have shown the volcano to be there.
  • Cinnabar Island has many glitches associated with it in the Generation I games, such as the old man glitch, due to programming oversights on the island's coast. There is also a trick to see a man on the roof of the Gym. However, both of these glitches were fixed in some regional versions.
  • Cinnabar Island and Vermilion City are named after the same color in the English versions of the Pokémon games but not in the Japanese versions, since crimson (グレン guren, "crimson lotus") refers to a shade of red while vermilion (クチバ kuchiba, "decayed leaves") refers to a shade of orange. Cinnabar is an orange-red mineral that produces the orange-red pigment vermilion. This explains why Cinnabar Island is colored red while Vermilion City is colored orange in the Generation I games when played with the Super Game Boy enhancements enabled on a compatible system or with the Game Boy Color enhancements available in the international releases of Pokémon Yellow (including the Virtual Console release).
  • It is the southernmost location in both Kanto and Johto that the player can Fly to.
