{{move|Red's House}}
The '''bedroom''' is the room that the {{player}} resides in within their own house. It is usually where the player first starts the game and where they end up after beating the [[Pokémon League]]. Most versions of the bedroom include a [[PC]], a bed, and often the current [[Nintendo]] console connected to a [[television]]. Also, in most games, there is a [[Potion]] already stored in the PC's item storage.
+
The '''player's house''' is the building in which the player lives in their respective games; [[Red]] and [[Leaf]] live in this house in [[Generation I]] and [[Generation III]], respectively. This house is situated in northwest [[Pallet Town]].

==Generation I and III==
===In {{3v2|Red|Blue|Yellow}}===

[[File:Player Bedroom FRLG.png|right|thumb|The player's bedroom in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen]]
In [[Generation I]], {{ga|Red}}'s bedroom has a PC, a bed, and a TV with a [[Super Nintendo Entertainment System|SNES]] hooked up to it. It serves no other purpose, although the PC can be used to access the player's item storage.
+
In [[Generation]]s {{Gen|I}} and {{Gen|III}}, the bedroom is where the player first starts their game. The room has a bed, a PC, and a television hooked up to a [[SNES]], though in Generation III, the SNES is replaced with a [[NES]], while a chest of drawers and a bookcase are added too.
  +
However, the SNES or NES serve no real purpose other than for aesthetic reasons.
   
==Generation II==
+
[[File:Red House HGSS.png|left|thumb|{{ga|Red}}'s bedroom in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver]]
===In {{3v2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}}===
+
In both generations, a [[Potion]] can be withdrawn from the PC at the start of the game, and the PC can also be used as an item storage system like any other PCs in the game. A sign can also be found on the wall by the stairs, which reminds new players how to open the bag.
{{ga|Ethan}} or {{ga|Kris}}'s bedroom is a bit fancier than Red's. Unlike Red's, it can also be customized to include several [[Pokémon doll]]s, as well as [[bed]]s, [[game system]]s, and [[carpet]]s. The [[Town Map]] hanging on the wall can also be replaced with one of several [[poster]]s of different Pokémon. The game system in the player's room is a [[Nintendo 64]].
 
   
In {{g|Stadium 2}}, the bedroom can be viewed in 3D.

The living room downstairs has a television and a dining table, where the [[Mom|player's mother]]

can be found. After the player receives their [[Starter Pokémon|starter Pokémon]], the player's mother can fully restore the player's Pokémon, just like at a [[Pokémon Center]]. If the player is a male, a movie involving four boys walking on railroad tracks is shown, possibly a reference to the film {{wp|Stand by Me (film)|Stand by Me}}. Likewise, if the player is a female, a movie about a girl in pigtails walking down a yellow brick road is shown, possibly a reference to the film {{wp|The Wizard of Oz (1939 film)|The Wizard of Oz}}, albeit only in [[Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen]].
   
==Generation III==
+
==Generation II and IV==
===In {{3v2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}}===
+
The bedroom hasn't changed too much by [[Generation]]s {{Gen|II}} and {{Gen|IV}}. The only differences are that the green carpet has been replaced with a much bigger, red chequered carpet, the television has gone, a chest of drawers has been added, the PC has been replaced with a laptop, and that the SNES/NES has been replaced by a [[Nintendo Wii]], or a [[Nintendo 64]] in Generation II. Also, when you examine some of the items in the room, the text shows that they are collecting dust, implying that they haven't been used in a long time. The red carpet may be a reference to [[Red]].
{{ga|Brendan}} or {{ga|May}}'s bedroom, which are essentially reflections of each other, feature a toned-down version of the [[Generation II]] decoration system, as now players are only able to decorate Poké Dolls on the rug. Much of the customization, however, has been moved into the player's [[secret base]]. A clock on the wall in the room is also the only indicator of time in the game. The game system in the room is a [[Nintendo GameCube]] with a [[Game Boy Advance]] hooked up to it as a controller.
 
Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald are the only versions of the game where the player does not start in their bedroom, instead beginning in the back of a moving van, having moved from the [[region]] of [[Johto]] to [[Hoenn]].

On the ground floor, Red's mother can be found drinking a mug of tea at the table, and she tells the player how worried she is about [[Red]], but at the same time how proud she is of him. Differences in these generations include a new kitchen area with a refrigerator and sink, bookshelves, and a larger television.
{{v2|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}} feature an enhanced version of the bedroom from Generation I. The only difference is the [[Super Nintendo Entertainment System|SNES]] being replaced with a {{nw|Nintendo Entertainment System|NES}}.

While Pokémon XD starts with [[Michael]] inside of the [[Battle Sims|Battle Sim]] instead of his bedroom, there is in fact a bedroom that can be used for healing Pokémon within the building, and it is where Michael ends up after [[Greevil]]'s defeat.

Paralleling the player leaving home and striking out on their own, the movie is about four boys who leave home to go on an adventure.

** If the player chooses to start with the {{ga|Leaf|female character}}, the TV will say, "''There's a movie on TV. A girl in pigtails is walking down a yellow brick road. ...I'd better go, too.''"

Interestingly, the player's [[Mom|mother]] will remark that it means that all girls wish to go out on adventures someday, contradicting the point of the movie (in which the main character wished to return home).
Due to the PC no longer having the item storage functionality, {{ga|Lucas}} or {{ga|Dawn}}'s PC only gives hints on how to play the game. This time the console is a [[Wii]].

The room belonging to {{ga|Ethan}}/{{ga|Lyra}} resembles the Sinnoh bedroom more than the original Johto one. The PC can be used to access mail storage, and the console in the room is a Wii (When checking it, it says "It's a Wii! Wii is huge in Johto, too!"). Room decoration has been nearly completely disabled; the only decorations obtainable are trophies from the Battle Tower, which are automatically placed in the room and cannot be moved.

Revision as of 07:43, 25 April 2012

018Pidgeot.png It has been suggested that this article be moved to Red's House.
Please discuss whether or not to move it on its talk page.

The player's house is the building in which the player lives in their respective games; Red and Leaf live in this house in Generation I and Generation III, respectively. This house is situated in northwest Pallet Town.

Generation I and III

The player's bedroom in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen

In Generations I and III, the bedroom is where the player first starts their game. The room has a bed, a PC, and a television hooked up to a SNES, though in Generation III, the SNES is replaced with a NES, while a chest of drawers and a bookcase are added too. However, the SNES or NES serve no real purpose other than for aesthetic reasons.

Red's bedroom in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

In both generations, a Potion can be withdrawn from the PC at the start of the game, and the PC can also be used as an item storage system like any other PCs in the game. A sign can also be found on the wall by the stairs, which reminds new players how to open the bag.

The living room downstairs has a television and a dining table, where the player's mother can be found. After the player receives their starter Pokémon, the player's mother can fully restore the player's Pokémon, just like at a Pokémon Center. If the player is a male, a movie involving four boys walking on railroad tracks is shown, possibly a reference to the film Stand by Me. Likewise, if the player is a female, a movie about a girl in pigtails walking down a yellow brick road is shown, possibly a reference to the film The Wizard of Oz, albeit only in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen.

Generation II and IV

The bedroom hasn't changed too much by Generations II and IV. The only differences are that the green carpet has been replaced with a much bigger, red chequered carpet, the television has gone, a chest of drawers has been added, the PC has been replaced with a laptop, and that the SNES/NES has been replaced by a Nintendo Wii, or a Nintendo 64 in Generation II. Also, when you examine some of the items in the room, the text shows that they are collecting dust, implying that they haven't been used in a long time. The red carpet may be a reference to Red.

On the ground floor, Red's mother can be found drinking a mug of tea at the table, and she tells the player how worried she is about Red, but at the same time how proud she is of him. Differences in these generations include a new kitchen area with a refrigerator and sink, bookshelves, and a larger television.

Triva

  • The video game console in the bedroom has changed with every generation it has appeared in - first it was the SNES, then the Nintendo 64, then the NES, and finally the Nintendo Wii.
  • At the player's house in Generation III, the TV makes two movie references that don't appear from any other TV in the games:
    • If the player chooses to start with the male character, when the TV at home is inspected, it says, "There's a movie on TV. Four boys are walking on railroad tracks. ...I'd better go, too." This is most likely a reference to the classic coming-of-age movie, Stand by Me (1986). Paralleling the player leaving home and striking out on their own, the movie is about four boys who leave home to go on an adventure.
    • If the player chooses to start with the female character, the TV will say, "There's a movie on TV. A girl in pigtails is walking down a yellow brick road. ...I'd better go, too." This is most likely a reference to the movie The Wizard of Oz (1939) which depicts the fictional adventure of a young girl. Interestingly, the player's mother will remark that it means that all girls wish to go out on adventures someday, contradicting the point of the movie (in which the main character wished to return home).
  • In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Red's bedroom features an area rug around his bed that is red in color. Blue's bedroom features a similar area rug, which is instead green in color. This is likely an oversight from the Japanese release of this game, wherein Blue's name is Green.
