The Team Rocket Hideout (Japanese: ロケットアジト Team Rocket Hideout), called Rocket Hideout in the Generation I and III games, and also known as Rocket HQ in the Generation I Town Map, is a four-floored underground complex beneath the Rocket Game Corner in Celadon City. It is a secret base built and used by Team Rocket to facilitate and administer their operations.

Access

 
The secret switch concealed behind a poster in the Game Corner

The Rocket Hideout is accessed by pressing a switch behind a poster in the Rocket Game Corner in Celadon City. A Team Rocket Grunt is guarding the poster in question when the player first approaches it. After being defeated, the Grunt retreats into the base, leaving the poster unguarded, and enabling the player to approach. Once the player activates a switch behind the poster, the stairs to the hideout will appear.

In Generation II, the Rocket Hideout is referred to when the player walks and selects the poster at the back of the Rocket Game Corner in Celadon City. The words, "Hey! Under this poster... There's nothing!" will appear, a reference to the original access point.

Features

This is the first time that the player encounters spin tiles, a special type of tile that, when stepped on, will uncontrollably spin the player in the direction of the arrows until they hit a stop tile. These are used on the second and third basement floors to create a complex maze.

The Rocket Hideout briefly appeared at the beginning of File 3: Giovanni, where Red was seen freeing some imprisoned Pokémon in there, as well as encountering Giovanni for the first time.

In the manga

 
Rocket Hideout in Pokémon Adventures

Pokémon Adventures

Red, Green & Blue chapter

The Rocket Hideout appeared in Tauros the Tyrant and The Jynx Jinx, where Red inflitrated it, disguised as a Team Rocket Grunt. Like in the games, the entrance to the hideout could be opened by pressing a switch behind a poster in the Rocket Game Corner. In the hideout, Red found a laboratory, where Team Rocket was creating an artificial Pokémon from Mew's cells, intending it to be their ultimate weapon. Blaine was one of the scientists working on the project. After the Pokémon was completed, it escaped, presumably destroying the hideout.

Pokémon Zensho

The Rocket Hideout appeared in Celadon City. After being scared away by ghosts inside the Pokémon Tower, Satoshi followed a pair of Team Rocket Grunts leaving the tower into their hideout and snatched one of their Silph Scopes before leaving. His infiltration was observed by Giovanni through surveillance cameras, ordering his minions to deal with Satoshi before he could potentially ruin their plans.
