'''Olivine City''' (Japanese: '''{{j|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 Trainer]]s often come to Olivine City in order to win the {{Badge|Mineral}} from [[Jasmine]], the Olivine [[Gym Leader]] who specializes in {{type|Steel}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}.
===Generation II===
'''''The Port Closest to Foreign Lands''''' (Japanese: '''{{j|「とおく はなれた いこくに もっとも ちかい みなとまち」}}''' ''The port town closest to distant foreign lands.'')
===Generation IV===
'''''The Port with Sea Breezes''''' (Japanese: '''{{j|「しおかぜ かおる みなとまち」}}''' ''The port town with the scent of sea breezes.'')
==Places of interest==
The '''Olivine Gym''' is the city's official [[Gym]]. It is based on {{type|Steel}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}. The [[Gym Leader]] is [[Jasmine]]. {{pkmn|Trainer}}s who defeat her receive the {{badge|Mineral}} and {{TM|23|Iron Tail}}.
When the [[player]] first reaches the city and approaches the [[Gym]], the [[rival]] is seen exiting the Gym. He informs the player that [[Jasmine]] is not in the Gym and is instead tending to a sick Pokémon in [[Glitter Lighthouse]]. Jasmine will not return until the Pokémon is well again, requiring the player to bring her a [[SecretPotion]] to heal the sick Pokémon.
Unlike other Gyms, there are no Trainer battles before the Leader in this Gym. In {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, two Trainers, {{tc|Gentleman}} Preston and {{tc|Lass}} Connie, are in the Gym, but they defer to battle as they have already faced the player in the Lighthouse.
{{main|S.S. Aqua}}
[[File:SS Aqua HGSS.png‎|thumb|right|[[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''' (Japanese: '''{{j|アサギみなと}}''' ''Asagi Port'') has a ferry to [[Vermilion City]], the [[S.S. Aqua]], only accessible after defeatingentering the [[EliteHall Fourof Fame]] and getting the {{key|IV|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. {{pkmn|Trainer}}s can be encountered on the ship each voyage, and may be battled, but only once.
===Olivine Café===
'''Olivine Café''' (Japanese: '''{{j|アサギしょくどう}}''' ''Asagi Café''), spelled '''Olivine Cafe''' in [[Generation II]], is a restaurant west of the [[Pokémon Center]]. It is known to be a place for {{tc|Sailor}}s 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 {{HM|04|Strength}} in [[Generation II]]; however, in {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, the sailor at the bar will suggest going to [[Mt. Mortar]] to find {{tc|Hiker}}s 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...".
Once the player has obtained the {{key|IV|Seal Case}} in [[GenerationHeartGold IV]]and SoulSilver, a young girl in the north-easternmost house of Olivine will give the player three random [[Seal]]s once per day when one talks to her. There is also a {{pkmn|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 {{p|Voltorb}} for {{p|Krabby}}.
===Battle Tower ad===
In Crystal, a signpost advertises the {{Gdis|Battle Tower|II}}. It reads ''BATTLE TOWER AHEAD Opening Now!'' (Japanese: {{j|「このさき バトルタワー オープンちゅう!」}}). In the Japanese version, the {{j|「オープンちゅう!」}} part is omitted before the [[Pokémon Mobile System GB]] is enabled because the Battle Tower is closed while it is disabled.
In HeartGold and SoulSilver, the signpost was moved next to the [[gate]] to [[Frontier Access]] on {{rt|40|Johto}}, and it now reads ''{{Gdis|Battle Frontier|IV}} Ahead'' (Japanese: {{j|「このさき バトルフロンティア」}}).

*''[[Pokémon FireRed & Pokémon LeafGreen: Super Music Collection|Sevii Islands: Six & Seven Islands]]'' is a remix of ''[[Pokémon HeartGold & Pokémon SoulSilver: Super Music Collection|Violet City]]'' from {{game2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}}, shared with Olivine City, and can be heard on [[Six Island (town)|Six]] and {{OBP|Seven Island|town}}s in {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}.
* The layout of the city is very similar to [[Sunyshore City]] with exits to the north and west of the city, two houses in the northeastern corner, a [[Gym]] in the northwestern corner, and a [[Glitter Lighthouse|lighthouse]] in the southeastern corner where the city's [[Gym Leader]] can first be found. Both cities are located on the shore's edge. {{TM|57|Charge Beam}} is also available in both. This might also explain why [[Jasmine]] is found visiting [[Sunyshore City]].
* There are unused maps in the [[Generation II]] games for a house in Olivine City that was [[Pokémon Gold and Silver beta|not used in the final game]]. Inside, a woman mentions a pharmacy in [[Ecruteak City]], not [[Cianwood City]]. This suggests that either the pharmacy could have been originally planned for Ecruteak City, or that Cianwood City may have been added to the game at the last minute.
* Olivine City is the original [[hometown]] of the player character {{ga|Brendan}}/{{ga|May}} and his/hertheir father, [[Norman]].
