Viridian City is the first city a trainer will encounter. The city's Gym Leader is Giovanni, a professional-type Pokémon Gym Leader, the 8th Gym leader.
Upon purchasing the 'Other Legendary 10x' gamepass and having an empty spot in your Party, you can talk to the NPC in Viridian City's PokéMart and he will give you a random legendary beast which include either a Raikou, Entei, or Suicune, all part of the 'Legendary Dog' trio.
After you choose your starter Pokémon and battle Gary, Professor Oak will ask you for a favor to bring him a special parcel he ordered. The parcel arrived at Viridian City's PokéMart and he will ask you to go get it for him. To get the parcel, go to Viridian City's PokéMart (blue roofed building) and talk to the clerk in the shop. He will give you the parcel and then you can talk to the clerk again to shop for items. After you have received the parcel, go back to Professor Oak and give him the parcel. He will then give you 5 Pokéballs to help you on your journey.
Viridian Gym is a-type Gym with Giovanni as the Gym Leader which is located on Nozen Lake. Although he is in the first city, he is the final Gym Leader and cannot be challenged unless the trainer has the first 7 badges. You must also fight Rocket Grunts before the Gym battle. If when you battle Giovanni and you have a Pokémon that is level 90+, he will copy your team and battle you with them.
The Gracidea Flower
The Gracidea flower is found behind the PokéMart (old map) or inside the cave to the left of Viridian City Gym (new map). This flower can change Shaymin's form from Shaymin-Land to Shaymin-Sky.
Please note that if you change Shaymin's form using the Gracidea flower, it cannot change back to Shaymin-Land.
