The Goldenrod Tunnel (Japanese: コガネちかつうろ Kogane Tunnel), known as the Underground (Japanese: ちかつうろ Underground Path) in Generation II, is a shopping district stretching below Goldenrod City. The shops that are open in the Tunnel depend on the days of the week and, in some cases, the time of day.

Pokémon Salon

Main article: Haircut brothers

Once a day when the shop is open, the player may have one of the brothers give a Pokémon a haircut. This increases the Pokémon's friendship. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, it also raises the Pokémon's Beauty stat.

The younger of the Haircut brothers is cheaper at  300, but his service is often less satisfactory. However, the younger brother has a chance of occasionally increasing a Pokémon's friendship to a greater degree than the older brother is capable of. The older brother is more reliable but more expensive at  500.

Bargain shop

On Monday mornings, a man sells a set of valuable items for a discount. Each item can only be purchased once per week. The man can still sell his items on other mornings provided the player has saved in front of him and does not walk away and remove him from the screen. The prices here are approximately 10% cheaper than the items' normal sell prices.

Goldenrod Department Store basement

The Goldenrod Department Store's basement opens up onto the Goldenrod Tunnel. Although the basement is accessible from the main store right from the start, the back entrance is initially occupied by Team Rocket and cannot be accessed until later. Petrel hides the Goldenrod Radio Tower Director here while he impersonates him but will give the player the Basement Key upon being defeated. Inside, there are Team Rocket Grunts and Silver to battle and a series of switches to turn ON/OFF in order to navigate through the basement completely.

Some rare items can be found in this section of the Department Store's basement.

Photo booth

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, there is a photo booth at the northern end of the Tunnel. Trainers can dress up and photograph their own Pokémon using Accessories, and a man offers to take photographs of Trainers with their on-hand party. This photo opportunity is unique, as players can wear themselves a Team Rocket Grunt costume.

During Team Rocket's invasion of the Goldenrod Radio Tower, the player must wear this uniform as a disguise to enter the Radio Tower. They will not battle in this costume nor can they (legitimately) leave Goldenrod City while wearing it.

Photo gallery

The saved photo of a dressed-up Pokémon from the photo booth is displayed in the photo gallery. In addition, photos from up to ten players that have mixed records with will also have their photos displayed here.

A Hiker appears in the photo gallery who runs an Accessory drawing. The player can apply for  100, having the chance to win a random Accessory.

The Underground Path in the anime

The Underground Path appeared in A Goldenrod Opportunity, where Ash and his friends explored it along with Whitney. She took them through the shopping plaza as an attempted shortcut to the Goldenrod Galleria, but got them lost several times along the way.

In the anime, the Underground Path is portrayed as much larger than it is in the games, but staples from them still appear, including both Haircut brothers.
