Pewter City (ニビシティ, Nibi Shiti, Nibi City in the original Japanese) is located in northwest Kanto, between Viridian Forest and Mt. Moon. It is the second nearest city to Pallet Town, hometown of the anime character Ash Ketchum. The Gym leader of the Pewter City Gym is Brock, who in the anime joined Ash in his quest. Brock trains Rock-type Pokémon and owns a Geodude and Onix.

OverviewEdit

Pewter City is the first available city with a Gym Leader in the Red, Blue, Yellow, FireRed, and LeafGreen Pokémon video games and appears in Gold, Silver and Crystal after completion of the Pokémon League. Brock is the Pewter City Gym Leader specializing in Rock-type Pokémon. Pewter City is also famous for its museum. The museum exhibits Pokémon fossils that were found at Mt. Moon. The museum is closed in the Gold and Silver versions due to renovations.

The MuseumEdit

The Museum is one of the main attractions of Pewter City. It has a‎ 50   admission price. On the first floor are the fossils of Aerodactyl and Kabutops. The second floor features a space exhibit with a large Space Shuttle Columbia model on display (in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, it will just be a generic space shuttle due to the then recent STS-107 failure). You can also see Moon Stones that are rumored to have come from the moon. Once you have received HM01 (Cut) and defeated the Cerulean Gym Leader, Misty, you can sneak into the museum through the side. After you talk to the scientist next to the stand, he will secretly give you Old Amber, which you can take to Cinnabar Island and use to bring Aerodactyl back to life.

The Path to Mt. MoonEdit

Main page: Mt. Moon

Pewter City is along the path to Mt. Moon, which contains a variety of Pokémon, including the rare Clefairy. Clefairies are rumored to dance on Monday nights, though they avoid humans.

Pewter City (Anime version)Edit

The first citizen Ash and Misty meet is Flint, Brock's father, unknown to Ash at the time. The Pewter City Pokémon Center is where Ash gets this idea for the Kanto League. Either at the form mention cafe of the P.C. or a fast food joint, Ash leaves Misty stuck with the bill. The Gym is inside a giant Petwer-like rock, where Ash had his battles with Brock. Also not too far away, in a Japanese-style house that home to Brock and his family.

In the Pokémon Chronicles episode, "A Family That Battles, Stays Together", Brock returns home to find out that his mom has become a water trainer. He then has to help his brother to save the Gym. He does and he gives his brother Forrest a few of his Pokémon including Onix, Geodude and Crobat.

Ash, May, Max and Brock make a stop at Pewter City on the way to their final Battle Frontier area and have to protect the gym from Team Rocket. It seems that Brock's mother painted over inside and outside of the Gym.

DemographicsEdit

The population of Pewter City is 23.
