Cinnabar Volcano connects up from Route 21, a route from Saffron City. The volcano is a large mountain, which takes quite a while to travel upwards upon. In place of the town located on Cinnabar Island, the original game's location, is a city on top of large rock-like supports, creating a 'Floating' City.

Notable Events

Obtaining Lugia

You can obtain Lugia by doing the following:

Talk to the NPC in black in Cinnabar Volcano's PokéCenter.

He will also give you a riddle/list as follows:

"Lazy bear. Dragonfly. Doctor. Fire bird. Magnets..."

Which means:

"Snorlax. Vibrava. ChanseyMoltres. Magneton."

Have these 5 Pokémon and an empty spot in your party and he will give you Lugia. (Possibly Shiny or Aura).

Obtaining Rotom

Rotom could be obtained in a 2015 event in which you could find it if you had a Ghost-type Pokémon and an Electric-type Pokémon in your party.This event is now over. Now, it is only obtainable through trading.

Notable Places

Cinnabar Gym


The Cinnabar Volcano Gym Leader is Blaine. He specializes in Fire-type Pokémon, and gives the Volcano Badge and TM Overheat when defeated. Once you have defeated him, you go back to Viridian City to battle the 8th gym leader, aka Giovanni.

Unlike other Gyms in-game, Cinnabar Volcano is the only location to not have a building designated for its Gym. Instead, players have to battle Blaine on top of the Cinnabar Volcano.

Illegal Pokemon Shop

One NPC will offer Pokémon to the player for Pokédollars. To shop with her, you must have at least 1 empty slot in your Party.

These hunches change frequently, so YOU should come back in a couple of minutes! On a completely UNRELATED note, my favorite Pokémon is ______!"
