Cerulean City (Japanese: ハナダシティ Hanada City) is a seaside city located in northern Kanto. It is situated near a sea inlet to the north, with Saffron City to the south, and Mt. Moon to the west. It is home to Misty, the Cerulean City Gym Leader.

The city is one of only two cities in Kanto to have four different routes enter the city, the other being Saffron City. Cerulean is a mid-sized city with a few attractions, including the Bike Shop and the Berry Powder man.

Slogan

Generations I-III

A Mysterious, Blue Aura Surrounds It (Japanese: ハナダは みずいろ しんぴのいろ Hanada is the color of aqua mysteries.)

Generation IV

The Floral Lagoon City (Japanese: はなさく みずの まち The town of bursting water.)

Places of interest

Bike Shop

Main article: Miracle Cycle

In the Generation I games and Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, the Bike Shop sells Bicycles produced by the company. Designs range from a plain city bike to a fast mountain bike; however, the player can only ever get one: the Bicycle. It can be bought for  1,000,000 or exchanged for a Bike Voucher. As only  999,999 can be held at maximum, there is no way for the player to obtain a Bicycle without a Bike Voucher. The Pokémon Fan Club Chairman in Vermilion City will hand over his Bike Voucher if the player listens to him talk about his Rapidash.

In Generation II, the shop is closed because the owner decided to move the shop to Goldenrod City in the Johto region. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, however, the shop in Kanto is also open, although nothing is obtainable inside. The manager mentions that since all the bicycles have been shipped to Johto for sale, all he has left to sell are inflatable tubes. The That Town, These People radio show profile of Cerulean City mentions this as well.

The name "Miracle Cycle" only appears in the Japanese games. In the English versions, the Miracle Cycle Shops are just called "Bike Shops" and no mention of Miracle Cycle is made at all.

In Generation VII, the shop is replaced with the home of the Bike Maniac, who collects different kinds of Bicycles, such as Mach Bikes and Acro Bikes. He doesn't sell or give away any of them.

Cerulean Cave

Main article: Cerulean Cave

On the outskirts of Cerulean City lies Cerulean Cave, also known as the Unknown Dungeon. It is said to be home to "horribly strong Pokémon". The player can capture the level 70 Mewtwo in the Generation I, III, and IV games. Only Trainers who compete and win in the Pokémon League at Indigo Plateau may enter due to the strength of the Pokémon in the cave, although in Generation IV, the player must also defeat all of Kanto's Gym Leaders in order to gain access. Mewtwo lies at the end of the cave, the only one of its species in the game.

Another addition in FireRed and LeafGreen is that Trainers are now required to further prove themselves before entering the cave by completing the quest on the Sevii Islands and restoring the Network Machine of the Pokémon Network Center to operational status. This stipulation may or may not have been added due to the addition of Wobbuffet to the cave's selection of wild Pokémon, and the old set of requirements that would have allowed players to enter the cave before obtaining the National Pokédex.

In Generation II, the Dungeon has collapsed, but Mewtwo's Berserk Gene has been left behind. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, however, the cave is still open. The Pokégear map mentions that it once collapsed but was rebuilt, and Mewtwo can still be found inside.

In Pokémon Stadium 2, the Pokédex map displays the Cerulean Cave as part of the Cerulean City.

Cerulean Gym

Main article: Cerulean Gym

The Cerulean Gym is the official Gym of Cerulean City. It is based on Water-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Misty. Trainers who defeat her will receive the Cascade Badge. Other known Gym members include Swimmer Briana, Swimmer Parker, Swimmer Diana, Swimmer Luis, and Picnicker Diana. The Cerulean Gym is designed like an indoor swimming pool, with platforms above the water for the player to walk on. There are no puzzles to solve in this Gym.

Berry Powder man

In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, there is a man in a cottage in the northern part of town who concocts a variety of medicines from Berry Powder and will exchange Berry Powder for herbal medicine and vitamins. When he is first visited, he gives the player the Powder Jar, and will ask the player to make some Berry Powder from the new machine that crushes Berries in the Pokémon Center upstairs. There is also a sign on his wall that keeps a record of pressing-speed ranking the player achieves.

Gym Badge man

In Generations I and III, there is a man in a cottage in the northwest corner of the city who will explain exactly what the effects are for each of the eight Indigo League Gym Badges. He also has a small backyard, where a Rare Candy can be found hidden among the flowers.

Dontae/Melanie's house

There is a residential house located to the west of the Pokémon Center.

In Pokémon Red, Blue, Gold, Silver, Crystal, FireRed, LeafGreen, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, this house belongs to Dontae and his wife. In Generation I and III, Dontae will offer to trade the player his Jynx for their Poliwhirl. In Generation II and IV, he is satisfied with the Pokémon he has received from trades over the years.

In Pokémon Yellow, this house belongs to Melanie. She is taking care of an Oddish, Sandshrew, and Bulbasaur. If the player's friendship with the starter Pikachu is 147 or higher, she will offer to give the player her Bulbasaur.

In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, Melanie once again inhabits the house. She will give the player a Bulbasaur if they have caught at least 30 Pokémon.

Burglarized house

In Generations I, III, and VII, a Team Rocket Grunt stole the TM for Dig from its owner, leaving the house a mess. After defeating the Grunt, the player will receive the TM from him. The owner then says that since the TM was stolen, he'll find a way of teaching Dig to Diglett without a TM.

The house is initially inaccessible because a Cerulean Police Officer (Officer Jenny in Yellow and Generation VII) blocks the door. The officer will only move aside from the door after the player talks to Bill at his Sea Cottage on Route 25.

In Generations II and IV, the man is actively fighting against robbers so the situation that occurred to him and his wife three years prior does not happen again. When he learns about the Team Rocket Grunt who stole the Machine Part, he gets upset and claims that he won't even reconsider not reporting the Team Rocket Grunt if he turns out to be the same thief from three years ago.

A notice outside the house in Generation II and HeartGold and SoulSilver reads:

There's a notice here...
Stamp out thievery and make the city
a friendlier, more cheerful place!
Cerulean Police

Move Tutor

In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, a Trainer in the Pokémon Center will teach the player's Partner Pokémon exclusive moves.

Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the population of Cerulean City is 33, having increased by one since Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen.

In the anime

Main series

 
Cerulean City in the anime

Cerulean City first appeared in The Water Flowers of Cerulean City, where Ash decided to challenge the Cerulean Gym. At the Gym, he found out that Gary and the other two Trainers from Pallet Town had already beaten the Gym. As their only remaining Pokémon after those challengers was a Goldeen, the Sensational Sisters were ready to give Ash the Cascade Badge without a battle, until Misty appeared, revealing herself to be one of the Cerulean Gym Leaders as well. Ash and Misty started a Gym battle, but just when Ash was about to win, Team Rocket busted their way into Gym, interrupting the battle. After Team Rocket had been defeated, the Sensational Sisters decided to give Ash the Cascade Badge as thanks for saving the Gym.

In The Misty Mermaid, Misty reluctantly agreed to help her sisters in a new underwater ballet performance at Cerulean City. However, in the middle of the act, Team Rocket appeared again, once more trying to steal the Gym's Pokémon. A battle between Ash and company and Team Rocket ensued, during which Cerulean Gym's Seel evolved into a Dewgong. Once the situation was solved and Ash and company prepared to leave, Misty left her Horsea and Starmie at the Gym, the latter due to her sisters' request.

Several Pokémon Chronicles episodes have mostly focused on the Cerulean Gym and Misty. In A Date With Delcatty, Cerulean City was revealed to have a container port, the Cerulean Marine Stadium, and a lighthouse.

In Alola, Kanto! and When Regions Collide!, Ash, his classmates, Misty, Brock, and Professor Kukui visited Cerulean City to visit the Cerulean Gym and teach Ash's Alolan friends about Gyms and Pokémon Leagues. To experience a Gym battle, Mallow and Lana had an unofficial Gym battle against Brock, while Lillie and Sophocles had a battle against Misty. After these battles had been called off with no clear winner, Kiawe requested to have a serious battle against Brock, while Ash issued a similar challenge to Misty. During these battles, Brock and Misty demonstrated their new ability to use Mega Evolution by Mega Evolving their Steelix and Gyarados, respectively. Kiawe lost his battle against Brock, while Ash managed to defeat Misty.

The Battle Factory is also located near Cerulean City.

Pokémon Origins

Cerulean City was seen briefly in File 2: Cubone, where Red recalled having visited the city during his journey. During his visit, he managed to retrieve the stolen TM for Dig from a member of Team Rocket and earn the Cascade Badge by defeating Misty at the Cerulean Gym.

Cerulean City in Pokémon Adventures

Pokémon Adventures

Red, Green & Blue chapter

Cerulean City was first featured in Suddenly Starmie as the place where Misty's mansion and the Cerulean Gym are located. Its streets surround a canal full of boats, resembling Venice. Red and Misty trained at the Gym together for a while in order to be able to fight Team Rocket more effectively.

Yellow chapter

Cerulean City was attacked by an army of Ghost Pokémon, sent there by Agatha. Misty, while protecting her Gym, found out that the Elite Four were after her Badge. After Yellow defeated Lance at Cerise Island, the Ghost army lost all of its strength.

Pokémon Zensho

Cerulean City appeared in Cerulean City, where Satoshi visited the city. Shortly after his arrival, he saved the bike shop from a Team Rocket Grunt, before heading to the Gym. However, before Satoshi could even properly start a battle with Misty, another Team Rocket Grunt attacked the Gym with a Gyarados. Satoshi defeated the Gyarados, receiving a Cascade Badge from Misty as thanks.
