Viridian City, the first stop on any trainers taking what is now considered the 'traditional' path of the Gym league circuit. It is situated in the middle of the 'Safe Zone' created by the Pokemon League that runs from Pallet's beaches up through the southern outskirts of Pewter City. Named for the massive, sprawling Viridian forest to the north, Viridian was once home to Gym Leader Giovanni, who granted trainers who defeated him the Earth Badge. Since the dismantling of Team Rocket and Giovanni's exposure as the mastermind behind the Criminal Organization, Viridian has lost a bit of it's luster.
