Pokémon world locations

Mt. Moon (Japanese: おつきみやま Mt. Otsukimi) is a mountain located in northern Kanto, between Pewter City in the west and Cerulean City in the east. Climbing it is not possible. To get past it, travelers need to travel through the caves.

It is known for its frequent meteor falls. The shards of meteorites that fall here become Moon Stones.

Mt. Moon is also known for being one of the few places that wild Clefairy can be found.

In Generation I and Generation III, the interior of the mountain is comprised of caves spanning three separate floors. In Generation I, the items found within Mt. Moon include two Potions, a Rare Candy, an Escape Rope, a Moon Stone, TM12 (Water Gun), TM01 (Mega Punch), and an HP Up.

The mountain is also known for being home to Pokémon fossils. Brock digs for fossils here in his spare time. Also, Team Rocket tried to steal the fossils found in Mt. Moon in the Generation I games and the Generation III remakes.

In Generation II, on Monday nights, Clefairy will dance and pray to a large Moon Stone in the square. By interrupting the dance and breaking the stone using Rock Smash, trainers can always find a normal Moon Stone below the rock.
