Cherrygrove City is a fictional town in the Pokémon series of video games. It is east of New Bark Town and southeast of Violet City in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal. Players' first encounter with their Gold/Silver/Crystal rival will be here after they get a call from Professor Elm. It is based upon the city of Nagoya.

Pokémon Center[edit | edit source]

This is where the first Pokémon Center is located in the game. It is no different than any other Pokémon Center in the game. You can heal your pokémon here and access stored pokémon and items. This is also where you can battle and trade with other players.

Pokémon Mart[edit | edit source]

This is the first Pokémon Mart encountered in the game. Poké Balls will not be available in the beginning until another shipment of Poké Balls will come in after one defeats his or her first Gold/Silver/Crystal rival encounter and after visiting Professor Elm to "name" the rival. This pokémon mart sells:

  • Potion at P300
  • Antidote at P100
  • Paralyze Heal at P200
  • Awakening at P250
  • Poké Ball at P200 *

Note: The 'P' represent the money used in the Pokémon world, Pokébucks.

* Only sold after beating your rival for the first time.

People of Interest[edit | edit source]

Mr. Pokémon[edit | edit source]

Mr. Pokémon lives in a house a bit further north of Cherrygrove City on Route 30. This is also the place where one will meet Professor Oak in the game and where one will get a Pokédex. When the player leaves Mr. Pokémon's house, a disturbing call from Professor Elm will tell him or her that a person stole one of his Pokémon. This Pokémon is the one of the three that has a type advantage over the one the player chose. One later finds out that the red-haired rival stole it.

After defeating or catching the red Gyarados at the Lake of Rage, you will obtain a Red Scale. Giving the item to Mr. Pokémon will earn you a EXP. share.

Guide Gent[edit | edit source]

Guide Gent, an Old Man waits the end of Route 29. He will give the player a tour of the area, ending with his house. This is useful for people new to the world of Pokémon. You will also a receive a Map Card for your Pokégear. This will give you a map of the Johto region that you can access through your Pokégear.

Islander[edit | edit source]

Once you have HM03: Surf, you can traverse the waters to the west of the city. When you reach a rocky island, the man residing on it will give you Mystic Water. This nifty item powers up water-type moves.

Your Rival[edit | edit source]

Similar to the rival in Red, Blue, Yellow, he'll appear after you leave Mr Pokémon's house, and the call from Professor Elm. He'll fight you with the starter who has elemental advantage over yours. After being beaten, he claims his name is ???, however this name can be changed after speaking to the police officer at Prof. Elm's lab.

Demographics[edit | edit source]

The population of Cherrygrove City is 12, making it the second-smallest in Johto.
