===The truck===
[[File:SS Anne truck RBY.png|thumb|200px|The original truck]]
In Pokémon {{3v2|Red|Blue|Yellow}}, as well as their remakes {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}} and [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]], a truck is placed in the [[Vermilion City#Harbor|S.S. Anne's port]], which seems to serve no evident purpose except as scenery, and was programmed into the game as a floor tile. With scenery being very sparse in the [[Generation I]] games, and this being one of the few sprites with no other purpose than to exist in one spot, fans began speculating that another purpose existed for this truck. The truck cannot be accessed without {{m|Surf}} or, which the player would not normally have or be able to use before the S.S. Anne departs.
There are a couple of ways the player can access the truck. One is to lose a battle on the S.S. Anne after obtaining {{HM|01|Cut}} so that the player is warped to the last [[Pokémon Center]] they visited without the S.S. Anne departing and they can return later with {{m|Surf}}. Another is to trade in a Pokémon that knows Cut, so that there is no need to obtain HM01 (Cut). Alternatively, [[List of glitches in Generation I#S.S. Anne reboarding|a glitch]] in [[Generation I]] also allows the player to bypass the sailor who normally blocks the entrance after the ship has departed. In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, the player is no longer prevented from accessing the harbor once the S.S. Anne leaves, so they can freely return to see the truck as soon as their partner learns the [[Secret Technique]] Sea Skim.
