From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Mahogany Town (Japanese: チョウジタウン Chōji Town) is a town in northern Johto. Its motto is "Welcome to the Home of the Ninja!", because of the ninjas that once resided in what eventually became the Team Rocket HQ.
Pokémon Trainers must come to Mahogany Town in order to win the Glacier Badge from Pryce, the Mahogany Gym Leader who specializes in Template:Type2 Pokémon.
Mahogany is a quiet, relaxed town, and has no Poké Mart. Instead, there is a shop used by Team Rocket as a base in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal. After Team Rocket is defeated, it is converted into a store run by a little old lady.
To the north of the city is the Lake of Rage.
There are three exits out of town. To the west is Route 42, to the east is Route 44, and to the north is Route 43.
When the town is first entered, there is a man blocking the East exit who wants to sell the player a RageCandyBar, although, in Generation IV, even after buying the RageCandyBar, the man will still not let the player pass, saying that the player needs to see the attractions in the town and the surrounding area. In order to exit to Route 44 and Ice Path and to remove the man from the exit, Team Rocket must be removed from the Team Rocket HQ as well as the Goldenrod Radio Tower.

Shop and hideout
There is no Poké Mart in Mahogany Town, only a small shop in the middle of town. It is a convenience store that sells supplies necessary for Pokémon training. The shop is run by a creepy old man, that is very suspicious. The shop is actually just a cover up for a Team Rocket hideout, which stores a machine that emits high-frequency sound waves. These sound waves brainwash Pokémon and induce evolution in the Magikarp that live in the Lake of Rage north of the town, turning them into Gyarados, which are far more profitable than their pre-evolutionary form. After the player encounters the Red Gyarados, Lance enlists the help from the player to stop Team Rocket's plans.
The hideout was originally used as a base for ninjas that once resided here, giving the town the motto "Welcome to the Home of the Ninja!".
