Places of interest

Pewter Museum of Science

Main article: Pewter Museum of Science
File:PewtercityMuseum-ext-frlg.png
Exterior View of the Museum in FireRed and LeafGreen

A famous museum is located in the northwestern part of Pewter City and is one of the city's main attractions. The main building is open to the public for PokémonDollar.png50 and features several historical artifacts, including Aerodactyl and Kabutops fossils, and a model of a space shuttle.

There are two floors to explore in the Pewter Museum of Science. The first floor holds the front desk and a fossil exhibit containing the fossils of Aerodactyl and Kabutops. The second floor hosts a space exhibit featuring a Space Shuttle and a large Moon Stone that fell onto Mt. Moon The player is able to explore the museum at any time, after paying the PokémonDollar.png50 admission fee.

Once the ability to use Cut out of battle is gained, the player can sneak into the back of the museum and acquire the Old Amber from a scientist there, allowing the player to revive an Aerodactyl later in the game. In FireRed and LeafGreen, there is also a move tutor who will teach Seismic Toss.

The museum is closed for renovations during Generation II.

In Generation IV, however, the museum is open for business. There is a scientist in the museum who will revive a player's fossils, much like the scientist at Cinnabar Island's Pokémon Lab in Generation I and FireRed and LeafGreen. This is due to the fact that Fossils can be found under rocks using Rock Smash unlike in Generation II where players were required to transfer Fossil Pokémon from the Generation I games using the Time Capsule.

Pewter Gym

Pewter Gym in FireRed and LeafGreen.
Main article: Pewter Gym

The Pewter Gym is the official gym of Pewter City. It is based on Template:Type2 Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Brock. Trainers that defeat him receive the Boulder Badge.

Other known members include Camper Jerry, Camper Liam, Brock's father, Flint, and Brock's mother, Lola.

Pewter Gym appears in all games set in the Kanto region, appearing much the same in each: a small building with a Japanese rock garden inside, one trainer, and the Gym Leader Brock waiting on a large stone pedestal. In the Generation I games and their Generation III remakes, whenever the player tries to leave Pewter City, a boy will lead him or her to the front of the gym if the player has not earned their Boulder Badge yet.

The population of Pewter City is 31.

In the anime

Episodes in Pewter City commonly focus on the Pewter Gym. While its legacy is of a strong Gym "as rough and tough as the stones themselves" was kept under Brock, his mother has recently added a brighter color scheme. The Gym Leader's family lives in a house by the side of the Gym, in which Brock's nine siblings and parents currently reside.

Around the outskirts of the city, there is a Contest Hall and one of the locations of the Battle Pyramid. Pewter City is also the hometown of Solidad, the winner of the Kanto Grand Festival.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Pewter City is first visited in Wanted: Pikachu! and Onix is On! in the Red, Green & Blue chapter. The citizens are business people that have tents in the streets where they sell principally fruits and vegetables which a roaming Pikachu tried to steal. After Red caught it, the citizens of the city gave Red a big feast. They also enjoy to watch the battles of the trainers who challenge the Pewter Gym. The city has a Pokémon Center, but during this time, it is closed due to vandalism, later revealed to be caused by the "bad" Gym Leaders in an effort to make Brock give up his gym badge for their plans.

It later made a brief appearance in Make Way For Magmar in the Red, Green & Blue chapter when the Pewter Museum of Science had been set on fire by Two Magmar.
