Location

Gen II
Olivine City in Gold and Silver

Olivine City (Japanese: アサギシティ Asagi City) is located on the Johto coast, near Ecruteak City and Cianwood City. Olivine is a major port city and is the home of the Glitter Lighthouse. The Glitter Lighthouse guides ships to the harbor as well as the S.S. Aqua connecting it to the port city in its sister region, Vermilion City in Kanto.

Pokémon Trainers often come to Olivine City in order to win the Mineral Badge from Jasmine, the Olivine Gym Leader who specializes in Steel-type Pokémon.

Places of interest

Glitter Lighthouse

Main article: Glitter Lighthouse
Glitter Lighthouse's beacon at night

Olivine is home to the Glitter Lighthouse, illuminated by an Ampharos, aptly named Amphy. It is here that Jasmine, the Olivine Gym Leader, is first encountered. Amphy is an Ampharos who serves as a beacon for the lighthouse. Recently, Amphy has become ill, and Jasmine, nurturing Amphy to health, will not leave for any reason. She asks the player to travel across the sea to Cianwood City to get a special medicine, then bring it back to her.

In Generation II, while there are no Trainers other than Jasmine in Olivine Gym, the lighthouse poses a challenge which provides more than enough of a counterbalance to it, as there are many Trainers on each of its floors.

In HeartGold and SoulSilver, Gentleman Preston and Lass Connie are actually Trainers from the Gym, and will return there once Amphy has been cured. Also in Generation IV, once the player has spoken to her, Jasmine opens a door leading to an elevator that goes from the top floor directly back to the bottom. Due to the addition of an elevator, the Lighthouse was redesigned so that the ground floor was a tourist deck, and no Trainer can be found training until the upper floors are reached.

Olivine's Lighthouse
It is also known as
the Glitter Lighthouse.


Olivine Port

Main article: S.S. Aqua
S.S. Aqua pulling out of Olivine Port

Olivine City has been famed for its water travel, thus a port was built to satisfy Olivine's connection with the sea. Olivine Port has a ferry to Vermilion City, the S.S. Aqua, only accessible after defeating the Elite Four and getting the S.S. Ticket from Professor Elm. The player can only ride it from Olivine City to Vermilion City on Mondays and Fridays due to the staff resting up.

After the initial trip to Kanto (which can happen on any day of the week), the S.S. Aqua sails from Kanto to Johto every Sunday and Wednesday, and sails from Johto to Kanto each Monday and Friday. Trainers can be encountered on the ship each voyage, and may be battled, but only once.

In HeartGold and SoulSilver, the captain of the ship implies that the S.S. Aqua travels to Sinnoh, as he mentions finding plates there. However, the ship does not appear in any of the games that take place in Sinnoh.

Olivine Café

Olivine Café is a restaurant west of the Pokémon Center. It is known to be a place for Sailors to stop after a long trip on the sea to rest and eat. Olivine Café prides itself on its generous-sized menu that is "chock-full of hearty fare for beefy Sailors". The Café consists of a bar with many stools around it and a square table surrounded by seats. Many people there are happily eating their food; one nearly chokes because he hadn't chewed before he swallowed. A sailor who eats there gives away HM04 (Strength) in Generation II; however, in HeartGold and SoulSilver, the sailor at the bar will suggest going to Mt. Mortar to find Hikers with an extra HM04 instead, saying "Have you ever noticed that in the mountains, sometimes there are round boulders right in your way...? You can move them with the hidden move Strength! Hikers at Mt. Mortar sometimes have extra, or so I've heard...".

Seals

Once the player has obtained the Seal Case in Generation IV, a young girl in the north-easternmost house of Olivine will give the player three random Seals once per day when one talks to her. There is also a Trainer inside the Pokémon Center that shows off her Ball Capsule with Seals.

In-game trade

A man in house northeast of Poké Mart will trade Voltorb for Krabby.

Demographics

Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Olivine City's population is 47, a large size for a port city. Since Olivine is a port city, many Sailors and Fisherman stay here or even dwell in the city. The northern district is mainly an urban area, which dwells families and other people. Meanwhile the southern district is host to many seaside tourist attractions, like the Glitter Lighthouse and the Olivine Café.
