I've got a problem

I looked at the method to find the truck for FR/LG and tried it. I think theres been a mistake; it doesn't work. Red/Leaf simply walks up to the ship, watches it leave, and exits the dock. I think I made a mistake, but I'm not sure. thanks Zander 07:52, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

You're supposed to do the truck before helping the captain. That way the ship won't leave.--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 12:06, 10 March 2008 (UTC)


What's the proof about the 3D rendered Kanto in DP? - Pokémon Lover King Mario

The title says Rumors and the sentence after that says that it was proven falsePokeManiac102 15:55, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

The Old Truck?

Was the truck really in Red, Blue and Yellow?--Moisesmorales 17:59, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Yes, the Old Truck appears in all of the Generation I games. Trainer-c 18:01, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

How to access the harbor after the ship leaves

This only works for RBY. To make the ship come back, you need a Pokémon with Surf. Stand to the left and above the sailor who tells you the ship left and turns you back. Take one step right, and in mid-step, hit the start button, similar to the Mew Glitch where you escape the Gambler. Immediately save and reboot. You should still be facing left, instead of down like how you usually start. Immediately begin Surfing, and you should be on top of the sailor. Then head down and enter the harbor. The ship will still be there and everything. If done correctly, it always works. (source) --爆発 ばくはつ 05:00, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

S.S. Ticket...

Something tells me that it's only a dummy item for DP... and that its place in the coding will be used... elsewhere. After all, all of the RSE key items are in the FRLG coding, and likewise for the FRLG key items in the E coding... TTEchidna 08:55, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

Oooh... good thinking. I'm adding that to the GSDS article. --MartonimosTalk 09:05, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

I need help

I tried to add the truck to Wikipedia's Kanto (pokemon) article but i have met a lot of resistance. One single user took it upon himself to repeatedly remove my contribution and caused a edit war. First it was called speculation, so i had to go out of my way to finding source after source. Luckily i found one that can't be disputed. Then it's notability was called into question and then the images were argued to not be allowed because they were Non-free but so are all the images on the same article. So can anyone help me get some more evidence to back my case up.

I need images that they can't argue against, sources and maybe some extra people who believe the truck can be added to the article and not hurt it. Yami Takashi 16:39, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Why are you on the S.S. Anne talk page anyways?Tavisource 17:24, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
And plus, Wikipedia has it's own rules and we can care less about Wikipedia. Just let them be. You'll learn to understand one day, kid.--Tavisource 17:26, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
If you can care less about Wikipedia, it means that you do care. The rest of us can't care less about Wikipedia. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 17:36, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
They're not going to budge so just stop trying. Wikipedians can do what they want to their Pokémon coverage for all we care. As long as Bulbapedia's article has the information, people can just come here. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 18:09, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

I put a pic I found on the achives about the s.s. anne one the s.s. anne page. I think it was uploaded by TTEchidna or King something..... well, here's the pic (I'll post later after I've found out who really uploaded it.......translation: I'll click on the picture, then say who exactly uploaded it.)--DRAGONBEASTX 07:31, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

KingMario uploaded it........--DRAGONBEASTX 07:33, 27 December 2008 (UTC)


This page has a disturbing lack of trainers listed, including the Rival battle. TCABF 07:33, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Wanna find out for us? I'll give you a cookie! — THE TROM — 07:18, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

I gathered as much of it as I could from LG. I'd already battled two of the trainers (The two in the room that is second from the left in the first row) so I missed those two's data, but I got the rest. Should be pretty accurate. I don't know the proper formatting for the templates and whatnot (I'm a wikinoob) so I'm posting here. I'll take that cookie now! :D

Wow, thanks. I really didn't think you'd do it quick like that. I'll upload it into the article, and you can eat this. — THE TROM — 08:34, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! :D Looking at the templates on other pages, it looks like I failed to gather certain data (Such as genders, and the moves of the rival) but hopefully this will at least get a start. TCABF 08:43, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
Eh. Someone will find out the genders I'm sure. Maybe I will... we still have to get those other two trainers. And the Rival's moves are probably on his page. If not, no biggy. — THE TROM — 08:48, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
Which game is this for?--Clarky13 08:57, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
I assumed FRLG... I'm filling it in slowly anyways... — THE TROM — 09:07, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
When your filling out Blue's battle, don't fill out the template from scratch, use the one here. Do you need help adding the templates?--Clarky13 09:16, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
Almost done. If you try and jump in it'll EC... But thanks. — THE TROM — 09:19, 10 May 2009 (UTC)


Should we move the Rumors section to the Vermilion Harbor page, since it has to do with the harbor, and not the ship directly? Jazzmoth 19:19, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

I would support that. --LaprasBoi 15:20, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Agreed. -LZ 00:38, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Dupe pictures

Is there some special reason which causes us to need two near-identical images of the "Truck" on the page? I don't quite see the point. --Turaga Dlakii (Talk!) 06:00, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure having one is fine, so I removed the one of them. ~ solaris 06:05, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

The SS Ticket in D/P/Pt

Maybe it's a placeholder, because the SS Anne might be in HG/SS Lord of Origami 09:46, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Unlikely, as G/S/C have their own ship, the S.S. Aqua, and even if it was, I am not sure why that requires a placeholder... D/P don’t have a placeholder for the Griseous Orb or the Gracidea, and you cannot trade Key Items anyway. So don’t put your theory in the article unless you have some evidence( or at least a lot of people agreeing with you I guess? I know Bulbapedia is a bit more relaxed than Wikipedia). --LaprasBoi 00:49, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
I agree with this, though. They might have put it in DPPt in case someone tried to hack the game with a pokemon holding that key item. It's a good chance SS Anne will show up in HGSS because it probably won't be identical to GSC, and possibly it could have other elements. Can't say the ship won't appear for sure. It's all speculation til the game comes out. CherryParanoia 19:56, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
Though just another thought came to mind. Can't the SS Ticket run for SS Aqua, or did the item itself say the SS Anne? CherryParanoia 19:57, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
Perhaps. As with all HGSS speculation, feel free to discuss in further on the forums. —darklordtrom 20:04, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
Personally I think the S.S. Ticket is just a carryover from the Gen III engine, like how the Bird-type is still in Generation II. Zesty Cactus 20:21, 20 August 2009 (UTC)


Outside the S.S Anne you can catch Magikarp with the old rod you probaly can other pokemon with the other rods - unsigned comment from Ponyta (talkcontribs)

Outside not inside. and you can't fish of the harbor.--ForceFire 11:00, 21 July 2009 (UTC)


Can anybody think of a use for the truck in generation 1 BESIDES sceneary?--Mtn otter We are the Void 16:09, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Not really. Take it to the forums, please~ 梅子 16:15, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Pokémon Center bed?

The article states that "A room is provided with a bed that acts like a Pokémon Center, restoring all Pokémon on hand to full health."

Is that true?

I don't recall there being any such bed on the S.S. Anne. I know the S.S. Aqua has one, as does the S.S. Tidal, but I don't recall the S.S. Anne having one. If it does have one, which room is it in? --Bardock 03:43, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

First floor. Second room from the right. It's actually a lady, not a bed. I shall amend. —darklordtrom 08:02, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Is it in Generation I? - unsigned comment from Schreiber (talkcontribs)

Both Trom and the article are right there is a nurse, and she is next to your bed.--Clarky13 13:33, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Snorlax's Pokedex Data

In the Red and Blue versions, talking to the man in the far left cabin on the top deck (the area you fight Blue in), adds Snorlax to your Pokedex, as though you had seen one without capturing it. Should this be mentioned, either under Geography or in a Trivia section? I don't know if this happens in FireRed and LeafGreen as well. --Doctorlit 17:52, 5 July 2010 (UTC)


A Geography section? Really? I know the content of that section is important, but there has to be a better word. It's a boat, for cryin' out loud. --AndyPKMN 12:57, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

I second this notion.- unsigned comment from LoganZezima (talkcontribs)


I own the original American version of Pokemon Red. There is no truck in it. When I pass the man asking for the ticket, I go to a zoomed out version of me walking to the ship. All that's on screen is an extended walkway going into the ship. There is no dock to hold a truck on. Should we mention this? Maybe it changes by different countries versions.--Rprince418 03:16, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

Maybe you missed it. Here is a video of someone getting to it. --SnorlaxMonster 15:20, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Pachelbel's Canon Similarities?

I was told by a friend that the music associated with the S.S. Anne, especially the arrangement seen in the Oceanic Museum, heavily borrows from the Canon. I gave the full canon a listen here: and I think it does sound pretty close when it gets around 2 and a half minutes in. I asked around several people to compare and they appear to find that the songs at least quote from the canon. What do you guys think? If it sounds close enough, I'd like to add it as a trivia point to both this page and consequently the Oceanic Museum's as well. Chicobo329 02:20, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Error with the trainers

I was playing Pokémon Yellow Version when I noticed that there are some errors in that page (perhaps only for the Yellow version): at the 2nd floor, there is not a Gentleman with a Pikachu at lvl 23, but one with Voltorb at 22, no item and Magnemite at 22, no item. He gives 1540 money. And also the Lass has not the Pokémon written here (rattata lv 18 and pikachu lv 18) but only a Jigglypuff lv 20 no item and she will give 300 money. Is it possible to modify the page? - unsigned comment from Matsetes (talkcontribs)

Maps, and how to incorporate them

So I have acquired all the maps for the S.S. Anne in Gen III. I have constructed a guide to how it all fits together.

The guide can be seen: Here.

But I was not sure how to put place it around in this template. So how would you guys recommend doing so?

Creoix 07:31, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

It's a bit big (and I've already placed it, but it can be changed if someone wants to). Also, posting images which don't exist is a BAD idea. I did that few times (as far as I remember) and... server liked to not update the image after uploading it. Marked +-+-+ (talk) 08:00, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Korean Name

I don't think the Korean name sounds right... "상트앙느호"... Shouldn't it be more like "샌트안느호"? Can someone make sure the first name I mentioned really is the Korean name? It just doesn't sound right... XXWeiFangXx (talk) 23:17, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

Truck access

I attempted to access the truck using the collect Cut, lose to a trainer method. However, as soon as I went back to the SS Anne, it took me to it, and then it departed. Is this way only able to be used in Gen I? I'll change it to say that if it is. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 16:44, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

What happens if you didn't pick up the HM01 before beating the game?

What happens if you skipped getting the HM01 and then beat the game? Does the SS Anne get replaceD with the Seagallop as usual, meaning that you will have permanently missed the HM? - Ericss (talk) 04:29, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

They removed the truck from the 3DS versions of RBY

Considering you can still do things like catch MissingNo., that's really funny. PowerPlantRaichu (talk) 13:32, 25 September 2016 (UTC)


In the Let's Go games, if you skip a trainer fight that trainer will fight you until you get the Secret Technic from the Captain, after that point they will only talk and you won't be able to battle them. Ethan (talk) 20:49, 5 December 2018 (UTC)Dann

How to obtain Lava Cookie?

After the rival has been defeated, the player will be able to enter the Captain's quarters, where they will find him seasick. By choosing to help him by giving him a backrub, players will be able to get HM01 (Cut)RGBYFRLG. Once the captain is healed, the S.S. Anne will sail away the moment player exits the ship.

How are you suppose to obtain this item if the Soul Badge is required to use Surf and the only way to progress through the game is by obtaining HM01 (Cut)FRLG and continue on to acquire the next badge in Vermilion City? Are you suppose to intentionally avoid at least one trainer, beat the rival and help the Captain, obtain HM01 then purposely lose a trainer battle? --Cloud9Skywalker (talk) 00:38, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

Yes, that is exactly it, or trade in a Pokémon that knows Cut. See the Rumors section of this page. --HoennMaster 01:52, 21 July 2020 (UTC)
