This week’s location is… Olivine City, of Johto!
Olivine City is located on the coast of Johto, near Ecruteak City and Cianwood City. It is a major port city, and is home to the Glitter Lighthouse. The Glitter Lighthouse helps guide the way for the S.S Aqua; which connects it to it’s “sister city” Vermilion City of Kanto. Here in Olivine City is where you can challenge Jasmine for the Mineral Badge.
Places of Interest:
Glitter Lighthouse: This lighthouse is illuminated by Amphy, the Ampharos, and provides light for ships in the harbor.
Olivine Port: It is a city famed for it’s water travel. Here is where one could take the S.S Aqua to a port in Vermilion City. However it can only be ridden Mondays and Fridays.
Olivine Cafe: This is a restaurant west of the Pokemon Center. It’s a popular spot for sailors to stop and rest, and eat. Here is where a sailor will give away HM04, Strength. (In Generation II). However, in Generation IV, the sailor simply suggests hiking to Mt. Mortar to find a Hiker with an extra HM04.
- A remix of this town’s music can be heard in the Six and Seven Islands.
- In Generation II, there was programming for a house in Olivine City that was not included. Inside, a woman mentions a pharmacy in Ecruteak City. This could have been an error, or perhaps an insight to an intention of having the pharmacy be in Ecruteak City instead of Cianwood City.
