Pokémon world locations

The Cinnabar Lab (Japanese: グレンラボラトリー Guren Laboratory), called the Pokémon Lab (Japanese: ポケモン研究所 Pokémon Laboratory) prior to Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, is a facility located on Cinnabar Island.

In the games

It was founded by Dr. Fuji (Japanese: フジ博士 Dr. Fuji), the title held by Mr. Fuji in his youth.

It only appears in the Generation I games and their remakes due to it being destroyed along the rest of Cinnabar Island prior to the events of the Generation II games and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. As fossils are obtainable in HeartGold and SoulSilver and the lab is no longer present, players must revive them at the Pewter Museum of Science instead.

According to a report found in Silph Co., Porygon was created by the lab.

Hall

The hall has a large reception area and a path to the west which provides access to three rooms.

In the reception area, there is a portrait of Dr. Fuji. The player is surprised upon reading the name, indicating familiarity.

Rooms

In the reception room of the Pokémon Lab, there are two people who will offer to trade Pokémon.

In the research lab, there is a man who is interested in Metronome. In the Generation I games, he gives away TM35 (Metronome). In FireRed and LeafGreen, he is a Move Tutor for the move instead.

In the experimental lab, there is a scientist who can revive the fossils the player can find at Mt. Moon, Pewter Museum of Science, and Cerulean CavePE. In Generations I and III, after giving him the fossil, the player must exit the lab and return to claim their fossil Pokémon, while in Generation VII, the fossil is revived immediately. There is also a third in-game trade here:

  • In the Japanese Pokémon Red and Green, international Pokémon Red and Blue, and Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, the trade is a Seel for a Ponyta.
  • In the Japanese Pokémon Blue, the trade is a Krabby for a Growlithe.
  • In Pokémon Yellow, the trade is a Muk for Kangaskhan.

In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, no trades are available at the lab.

In the anime

The Pokémon Lab in the anime

When Ash and his friends arrived on Cinnabar Island in Riddle Me This, they had planned to visit the Pokémon Lab, although they were dismayed to discover that it, like the rest of Cinnabar Island, had turned into yet another tourist trap.

Its second floor appears to be a Pokémon exercise and training center with a pool and fitness equipment. Team Rocket attempted to go there and steal the Lab's Fighting-type Pokémon, bombing the building's roof in the process. After Blaine had received a phone call about the bombing, Ash and his friends intervened and sent Team Rocket blasting off.

In the manga

Pokémon Lab in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In Holy Moltres, Red was sent to the Pokémon Lab by Blaine to revive the Old Amber that he received from Giovanni in Make Way For Magmar!. Red managed to revive the Old Amber into an Aerodactyl, which he nicknamed "Aero" and used to fend off Team Rocket and their Moltres.

The Lab reappeared in the Yellow chapter, where it was revealed to be connected to the Cinnabar Gym, working as Blaine's personal laboratory. Among other things, it was shown to contain a special tank meant for Mewtwo.
