The Kanto Taxi Service allows players to teleport to cities in which you have won a Gym badge or, in cities without a gym (excluding Viridian City), when you visit them. However, you cannot teleport to some cities (like Lavender Town) even if you have visited it and have not won the Gym badge. The taxi service is usually located outside of the Pokecenter.

The Taxi Service is used like the move Fly in the original games.
