Professor Ivy's Lab

The lab of the Pokémon Professor, Professor Ivy. This is where Professor Ivy researches Pokémon. She has three assistants that work around the clock for her. In the back is a bay where she studies the Water-type Pokémon. The bay is a large beach, and behind it is a forest with many forest Pokémon of different colorations.
