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: {{ga|Red}} lives in this house in [[Generation I]] and {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}}, whereas {{ga|Leaf}} lives here in FireRed and LeafGreen only. This house is situated in their [[hometown]], [[Pallet Town]].

+
[[File:Pallet Town Red's House FRLG.png|right|thumb|Red's bedroom in {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}}]]
In {{3v2|Red|Blue|Yellow}} the bedroom has a PC, a bed, and a TV with a [[Super Nintendo Entertainment System|SNES]] hooked up to it. The PC can be used to access the player's item storage.
+
In [[Generation I]] and {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}}, the bedroom is where the {{player}} first starts their adventure. The room has a bed, a [[PC]], and a [[Television|TV]] hooked up to a {{nw|Super Nintendo Entertainment System|SNES}}{{tt|*|Super Famicom in the Japanese releases}} in Generation I or {{nw|Nintendo Entertainment System|NES}}{{tt|*|Famicom in the Japanese releases}} in FireRed and LeafGreen. Also in FireRed and LeafGreen, a chest of drawers and a bookcase are added. However, either the SNES or NES serve no real purpose other than for aesthetic reasons.
   
In {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}} the bedroom is essentially a graphically enhanced version of the bedroom from Generation I. The only difference is that the [[Super Nintendo Entertainment System|SNES]] is replaced with a {{nw|Nintendo Entertainment System|NES}}.
+
In Generation I, interacting with the SNES results in the following text:
   
===Johto===
+
{{sign|RBY|header}}
In {{3v2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}} the bedroom has a TV, a [[Pok%C3%A9gear#Radio|radio]] tuned to [[Pok%C3%A9gear#Generation II|channel 4.5]] and a PC which can be used to access item and mail storage. The PC in this room has an additional function, allowing the player to customize the bedroom with a variety of [[decorations]], such as [[Pokémon doll]]s, as well as [[bed]]s, [[game system]]s, [[plant]]s, and [[carpet]]s. The [[Town Map]] hanging on the wall can also be replaced with one of several [[poster]]s of different Pokémon.

Most decorations are received as gifts when using [[Mystery Gift]] with another player, although [[Mom]] may also purchase some if the player has allowed her to save their money. A gold trophy and silver trophy can also be obtained from {{g|Stadium 2}}. The position of most decorations within the bedroom are fixed and cannot be altered; dolls, however, can be placed on either the left or right side of the table. It is also possible to put away all decorations, including the map and the bed. The bedroom and its decorations can be viewed in 3D in Pokémon Stadium 2 if a compatible game is inserted into the [[Transfer Pak]].
+
In FireRed and LeafGreen, interacting with the NES results in the following text:
   
In {{v2|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}} the room instead resembles the Sinnoh bedroom rather than the original Johto one. The PC can only be used to access mail storage, and the console in the room is a Wii. Unlike the original games, this bedroom cannot be customized. The three trophy decorations from {{g|Platinum}}, earned upon achieving a win streak of 20, 50 and 100 in the Single Battle mode of the [[Battle Frontier (Generation IV)#Battle Tower|Battle Tower]], can also be obtained in these games. Once awarded, they are automatically placed on the rug in the bedroom and cannot be moved or removed.

===Hoenn===
+
In both generations, a {{DL|Potion|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. In FireRed and LeafGreen, a sign can also be found on the wall by the stairs between the player's bedroom and the living room, which notifies the player that either pressing the L or R buttons on their {{nw|Game Boy Advance}} will trigger the help feature.
In {{3v2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}} there are separate houses for the male and female {{player|player characters}}, although both houses including the bedroom are essentially mirrored versions of each other. Both bedrooms feature a TV, a [[Nintendo GameCube]] with a [[Game Boy Advance]] connected as controller, a town map, a notebook with basic control instructions and a clock on the wall, which serves as the only indicator of time in the game. There is also a PC in the room, which can be used to access item and mail storage and the decoration feature. This latter feature is more basic than the system present in [[Generation II]]; Pokémon dolls and cushions may be placed on the rug only, and up to 16 decorations may be placed. The dolls, cushions and other decorations can be placed in a [[secret base]], where most of the customization options have shifted. In Ruby and Sapphire both bedrooms have red rugs, but in Emerald {{ga|Brendan}}'s room has a blue rug, while {{ga|May}}'s has a pink rug. A Pokémon doll will appear in the rival's bedroom at a certain point in the game.
 
   
Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald are some of the few games that do not begin with the player in their bedroom, instead beginning in the back of a moving van, having moved from the [[region]] of [[Johto]] to [[Hoenn]].

The living room downstairs has a TV and a dining table, where the [[Mom|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]].
In [[Pokémon Colosseum]] the player has no set home, as he lived in the [[Snagem Hideout]] prior to the events of the game.
 
   
In {{Pokémon XD}} the player's bedroom is located in the western part of [[Pokémon HQ Lab]]. The bed can be used to heal the player's Pokémon, and the player will appear in the room upon completion of the main storyline.
+
In Generation I, interacting with the TV from either the left or right side will result in the following text to appear:
   
Pokémon XD is one of the few games that does not begin with the player in their bedroom, instead beginning with a single battle in the [[Battle Sims|Battle Sim]].

===Sinnoh===
+
If the player is {{ga|Red}}, 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}}. In FireRed and LeafGreen, if the player is {{ga|Leaf}}, a movie about a girl in pigtails walking down a brick road is shown, possibly a reference to the film {{wp|The Wizard of Oz (1939 film)|The Wizard of Oz}}.
The bedroom in {{3v2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}} is the most basic of all the games. There is a TV, Wii and a PC that simply gives basic tips on how to play the game. A sign next to the stairs informs the player how to open the menu.
 
   
===Unova===
+
The interaction text from the TV and with the player's mother is as follows:
In {{2v2|Black|White}} the bedroom contains a [[Wii]] and a PC that does not serve any real function. The first two [[Pokémon battle]]s of the game take place within the bedroom, causing the room to fall into a state of disarray. The player's mother will later happily tidy the room, restoring it to its original condition.
 
   
The bedroom cannot be custom decorated, however numerous decorations can be obtained. When the [[Unova Pokédex|Unova]] and [[National Pokédex]]es are completed, their respective [[diploma]]s will automatically be delivered to the house and placed on a table in the upper part of the bedroom. Three trophies can also be obtained by achieving high win streaks on the [[Battle Subway]], and will automatically be placed on the table in the lower part of the room. A trophy will be awarded upon achieving a win streak of 49+ battles on the Super Single, Super Double and Super Multi Lines respectively.
+
===Red as the player===
   
In {{2v2|Black|White|2}} the bedroom is not upstairs in a separate room, but simply partitioned from the main living area as the player's house is only single-story. There is a table and a dresser in the top part of the room where the diplomas and trophies will be displayed if they have been awarded.

  +
The bedroom hasn't changed too much by [[Generation II]] and {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}.
  +
  +
In Generation II, the room is essentially the same as in [[Generation I]], although a chest of drawers and a bookcase are added, while the {{nw|Super Nintendo Entertainment System|SNES}}{{tt|*|Super Famicom in the Japanese releases}} has been replaced by a {{nw|Nintendo 64}}.

In HeartGold and SoulSilver, the differences to the bedroom from {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}} are the following:

* the green carpet has been replaced with a much bigger, red chequered carpet;
  +
* the [[Television|TV]] is removed;

==Trivia==
 
==Trivia==
* The player's bedroom in {{2v2|Black|White}} versions is the only place in the whole series to suffer damage from Pokémon battles. In all other battles which take place indoors or outdoors, the environment remains unscathed.
+
* The featured {{wp|video game console}} in the bedroom has changed with every [[generation]] it has appeared in:
  +
** in [[Generation I]], it is the {{nw|Super Nintendo Entertainment System|SNES}} (Super Famicom in the Japanese releases);
  +
** in [[Generation II]], it is the {{nw|Nintendo 64}};
  +
** in {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}}, it is the {{nw|Nintendo Entertainment System|NES}} (Famicom in the Japanese releases);
  +
** in {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, it is the {{nw|Wii}}.
  +
* In {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}}, when playing as {{ga|Leaf}}, the movie presented on the [[Television|TV]] is likely a reference to ''{{wp|The Wizard of Oz (1939 film)|The Wizard of Oz}}'', a movie from 1939, which depicts the fictional adventure of a young girl. However, Leaf'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).

Revision as of 19:26, 22 November 2013

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.

050Diglett.png This article is incomplete.
Please feel free to edit this article to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Pictures from the house's exterior and interior from all generations and present them better.

The player's house is the building in which the player lives in their respective games: Red lives in this house in Generation I and FireRed and LeafGreen, whereas Leaf lives here in FireRed and LeafGreen only. This house is situated in their hometown, Pallet Town.

Generations I and III

Red's bedroom in Red and Blue
Red's bedroom in FireRed and LeafGreen

In Generation I and FireRed and LeafGreen, the bedroom is where the player first starts their adventure. The room has a bed, a PC, and a TV hooked up to a SNES* in Generation I or NES* in FireRed and LeafGreen. Also in FireRed and LeafGreen, a chest of drawers and a bookcase are added. However, either the SNES or NES serve no real purpose other than for aesthetic reasons.

In Generation I, interacting with the SNES results in the following text:

NINTEN is
playing the SNES!
...Okay!
It's time to go!

In FireRed and LeafGreen, interacting with the NES results in the following text:

RED played with the NES.
…Okay!
It’s time to go!

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. In FireRed and LeafGreen, a sign can also be found on the wall by the stairs between the player's bedroom and the living room, which notifies the player that either pressing the L or R buttons on their Game Boy Advance will trigger the help feature.

It's a posted notice…

If you're confused, ask for HELP!
Press the L or R Button!

The living room downstairs has a TV 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.

In Generation I, interacting with the TV from either the left or right side will result in the following text to appear:

Oops, wrong side.

If the player is Red, a movie involving four boys walking on railroad tracks is shown, possibly a reference to the film Stand by Me. In FireRed and LeafGreen, if the player is Leaf, a movie about a girl in pigtails walking down a brick road is shown, possibly a reference to the film The Wizard of Oz.

The interaction text from the TV and with the player's mother is as follows:

Red as the player

Generation I (TV)

There's a movie
on TV. Four boys
are walking on
railroad tracks.

I better go too.

Generation I (Mother)

MOM: Right.
All boys leave
home some day.
It said so on TV.

PROF.OAK, next
door, is looking
for you.

FireRed and LeafGreen (TV)

There's a movie on TV.
Four boys are walking on railroad
tracks.

…I better go, too.

FireRed and LeafGreen (Mother)

MOM: …Right.
All boys leave home someday.
It said so on TV.

Oh, yes. PROF. OAK, next door, was
looking for you.

Leaf as the player

FireRed and LeafGreen only (TV)

There's a movie on TV.
A girl with her hair in pigtails is
walking up a brick road.

…I better go, too.

FireRed and LeafGreen only (Mother)

MOM: …Right.
All girls dream of traveling.
It said so on TV.

Oh, yes. PROF. OAK, next door, was
looking for you.

Generations II and IV

Inside of Red's house in HeartGold and SoulSilver, with his bedroom at the top

The bedroom hasn't changed too much by Generation II and HeartGold and SoulSilver.

In Generation II, the room is essentially the same as in Generation I, although a chest of drawers and a bookcase are added, while the SNES* has been replaced by a Nintendo 64.

Interacting with the Nintendo 64 yields the following text:

{A1} played the
N64.
Better get going--
no time to lose!

In the Japanese releases of Generation II, the Nintendo 64 is referred to as ロクヨン Rokuyon, a popular nickname for the console in Japan.

{A1}は
ロクヨンを してる!
⋯⋯ ⋯⋯ よし!
そろそろ でかけよう!

In HeartGold and SoulSilver, the differences to the bedroom from FireRed and LeafGreen are the following:

  • the green carpet has been replaced with a much bigger, red chequered carpet;
  • the TV is removed;
  • the NES* has been replaced by a Wii.

Interacting with the Wii yields the following text:

It’s a Wii!
Wii is huge in Kanto, too!

In both generations, interacting with the PC results in the following text:

Generation II

It looks like it
hasn't been used
in a long time...

HeartGold and SoulSilver

It looks like it hasn’t been used
in a long time...

On the living room, Red's mother can be found there, whereby only in HeartGold and SoulSilver is she 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 TV. In Generation II only, the living room also has an added mirror.

Interacting with the TV provides the following text:

Generation II

They have programs
that aren't shown
in JOHTO...

HeartGold and SoulSilver

They have shows that aren’t
aired in Johto...

Red's mother dialogue is as follows:

Generation II (first time)

Hi!

RED's been away
for a long time.

He hasn't called
either, so I have
no idea where he
is or what he's
been doing.

They say that no
word is proof that
he's doing fine,
but I do worry
about him.

Generation II (second and subsequent times)

I worry about RED
getting hurt or
sick, but he's a
boy. I'm proud
that he is doing
what he wants to
do.

HeartGold and SoulSilver (first time)

Hi!

Red’s been away. He hasn’t called
either, so I have no idea where he
is or what he’s been doing.

They say no news is good news,
but I do worry about him.

HeartGold and SoulSilver (second and subsequent times)

I worry about Red getting hurt or
sick, but he’s a boy. I’m proud that
he is doing what he wants to do.
