Generation IV
===Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver===
As in the original games, Pallet Town's population remains 8, making it the smallest town in Kanto.
===Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!===
Just like in all the aforementioned games, Pallet Town's population is 8, once again making it the smallest town in Kanto.
==Differences among generations==
===GenerationGenerations I and III===
Pallet Town is very consistent in the way of layout. The square-shaped town with three buildings remains the same between GenerationGenerations I and III, only enhancing aesthetic features. Trees have become bigger, flowers are more visible, and most other sprites have been upgraded to Generation III standards. Most of the town's residents remain the same and will tell Trainers the same messages. However, there is a woman in front of the [[signpost]] on the southwestern field that will move out of a Trainer's way when interacted with. In the Generation I to III transition, the garden in front of Professor Oak's Lab is removed, while other houses in Pallet have mailboxes instead of signs.
Professor Oak's Lab has gone through some slight remodeling. In Generation I, inside are three of Professor Oak's aides, two men and one woman, a couple of shelves full of books, a table with three {{i|Poké Ball}}s, a computer, two blank [[Pokédex]]es, and two tips for the player, while in Generation III, other than the significant graphical enhancements, the laboratory also has two plants in the entrance, a ''mysterious machine'', books on the floor, two regular machines in the corner, and a window. Changes in Red's and Blue's househouses also sufficed. In Generation III, the player's bedroom features an enhanced version of the bedroom from Generation I with the SNES being replaced with an {{wp|Nintendo Entertainment System|NES}}.
===Generation II===
During Generation II, Pallet Town had little changechanges done to the layout. Despite the graphical updates, the town remained totally unchanged save for the movement of the [[tall grass]] in the north. [[Daisy Oak|Daisy]], the sister of the {{ga|Blue|rival}}, who is living in the rivalBlue's house, will comb the player's Pokémon, causing its [[friendship]] to be raised. Daisy will groom one of the player's Pokémon for free once daily between 3:00 and 4:00 PM. Red's mom also appears in Generation II, telling the player how worried she is about Red, but also how proud she is of him.
===Generation IV===
During Generation IV, Pallet Town also had surprisingly little change down to the layout. Despite the graphical updates, the town remained totally unchanged. As in Generation II, [[Daisy Oak|Daisy]], {{ga|Blue}}'s sister, will groom the player's Pokémon between 3 and 4 PM, and will give away his [[Pokégear]] number if she is shown a Pokémon that is already very friendly and has a high {{OBP|Beauty|condition}} condition.
==Trainer Tips==
Pallet Town made a couple of appearances in [[Pokémon Origins]], being the hometown of {{OBP|Red|Origins}} and {{OBP|Blue|Origins}}. It first appeared in ''[[PO01|File 1: Red]]'', where both Red and Blue were seen receiving a [[Pokédex]] each from Professor Oak, after which they got to choose their starter Pokémon. Red chose {{TP|Red|Charmander}}, while Blue chose {{p|Squirtle}} to counter Red's choice. Afterwards, both Red and Blue departed Pallet Town and started gathering information on their Pokédexes.
Pallet Town's next major appearance was in ''[[PO04|File 4: Charizard]]'', where Red returned to Professor Oak's Laboratory to tell him how he had completed his Pokédex, only to find out that Blue had been injured during a battle against an unknown Pokémon at [[Cerulean Cave]], during which his own Pokédex had also gotten destroyed. Red soon understood that the mysterious Pokémon was, in fact, {{p|Mewtwo}}, a genetically enhanced version of a rare Pokémon called {{p|Mew}}. In order to add Mewtwo's data to the Pokédex, Red headed to Cerulean Cave, where he battled and, with extreme effort, successfully caught Mewtwo. During a small party held by Professor Oak to celebrate the completion of the Pokédex, Red realized that since Mewtwo was created from Mew, he still had to go find and catch Mew in order to make the Pokédex truly complete.
===In ''[[M20|I Choose You!]]''===
===In The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga===

As in the anime, {{OBP|Ash Ketchum|EToP|Ash}}'s hometown is Pallet Town in the [[The Electric Tale of Pikachu]] manga series. [[{{an|Professor Oak]]}} does not appear to live in Pallet Town full-time, as he is seen doing a field study of {{p|Clefairy}} in ''[[ET03|Clefairy Tale]]''. It is, however, the hometown of Ash and {{Gary}}, as well as the current residence of [[Delia Ketchum]] and [[Daisy Oak|May Oak]].
According to Gary, {{p|Pikachu}} are commonly found around Pallet Town.
** In {{game2|Red|Blue|Yellow}}, part of the text overlaps the previous line as opposed to inserting a new line and scrolling the text box accordingly.
*** In English Yellow only, this was fixed. However, a word is now misspelled.
*** Specifically in the Italian versions, another error was made; one of the words is rendered on top of the text-boxtextbox's right border instead of appearing in a new line.
