The Rocket Hideout (Japanese: ロケットだんアジト Team Rocket Hideout) is a four-floored underground complex beneath the Rocket Game Corner in Celadon City. It is a secret base built and used by Team Rocket to facilitate and administer their operations.

Access

The secret switch concealed behind a poster in the Game Corner

The Rocket Hideout is accessed by pressing a switch behind a poster in the Rocket Game Corner in Celadon City. A Team Rocket Grunt is guarding the poster in question when the player first approaches it. After being defeated, the Grunt retreats into the base, leaving the poster unguarded, and enabling the player to approach. Once the player activates a switch behind the poster, the stairs to the hideout will appear.

In Generation II, the Rocket Hideout is referred to when the player walks and selects the poster at the back of the Rocket Game Corner in Celadon City. The words, "Hey! Under this poster... There's nothing!" will appear, a reference to the original access point.

Features

This is the first time that the player encounters spin tiles, a special type of tile that, when stepped on, will uncontrollably spin the player in the direction of the arrows until they hit a stop tile. These are used on the second and third basement floors to create a complex maze.

In the anime

Giovanni's Rocket Hideout office in Pokémon Origins

In Pokémon Origins

The Rocket Hideout made a brief appearance during the beginning of File 3: Giovanni, where Red was seen freeing some imprisoned Pokémon in there, as well as encountering Giovanni for the first time.

In the manga

Rocket Hideout in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

The Rocket Hideout appeared in Tauros the Tyrant and The Jynx Jinx, where Red inflitrated it, disguised as a Team Rocket Grunt. Like in the games, the entrance to the hideout could be opened by pressing a switch behind a poster in the Rocket Game Corner. In the hideout, Red found a laboratory, where Team Rocket was creating an artificial Pokémon from Mew's cells, intending it to be their ultimate weapon. Blaine was one of the scientists working on the project. After the Pokémon was completed, it escaped, presumably destroying the hideout.
