Wild Pokémon in a forest in the anime

Forests are secluded, wooded areas that can be found in the Pokémon world. They tend to have Grass-, Flying- and Bug-type Pokémon, although Pokémon based on animals that live in the forest, such as Pikachu, may be found in them. In each core series region, there is at least one forest, with major forests including Viridian Forest in Kanto, Ilex Forest in Johto, Petalburg Woods in Hoenn, Eterna Forest in Sinnoh, Pinwheel Forest in Unova, Santalune Forest in Kalos, Lush Jungle in Alola, and Glimwood Tangle in Galar. In Pokémon Black and White, the first version-exclusive forest, known as White Forest, was shown.

Forests are in almost every region of the Pokémon world, although they are not as common as caves. In the core series Pokémon games, they are mostly mazes which usually have at least one tree that Cut can be used on. Besides the aforementioned Cut trees, there are many other different types of trees that can be found in forests, such as one type which can be Headbutted, which results in Pokémon, such as Spinarak, appearing. Others can have Honey slathered on them, which attracts Pokémon, such as Munchlax, to them. The final two types are found in Johto and Sinnoh-based games, respectively.
