Debut The Ghost of Maiden's Peak

Maiden's Peak (Japanese: 乙女ヶ崎 Maiden's Cape) is a haunted, anime-exclusive location in Kanto. Ash and his friends visited it in The Ghost of Maiden's Peak. It is located somewhere near Saffron City.

Two thousand years ago, a war was taking place and soldiers were being shipped overseas from Kanto to the battlefield. A maiden was in love with one of the soldiers who was sent to war, and she swore to wait on the cliff until her love returned, but he never did. According to legend, she died while standing there, and her body became a part of the cliff itself.

Her petrified body became a monument, and the location was named after the legend. Her spirit still haunts the area with the help of a clever, talking Gastly, who preserves her legend every year during the Summer Festival by haunting the peak.

In present times, a festival is held there at the end of the summer. Visitors honor the statue of the maiden, and at the end of the festival, people will release small boats with paper lanterns into the water. These boats are meant to help spirits find their way home, in hopes that the spirit of the maiden's lover will one day be returned to her.
