|Pinkan City - Kanto|
Pinkan City is the entry point to Pinkan Island, an extra island located in Kanto. It can be accessed by talking the Pinkan Island Sailor after completing the first part of the Pinkan Island quest. Talking to the sailor takes the player back to Vermilion City, while going south leads to Pinkan Island Forest.
Being the city of the island, this area has a Pokémon Center and a Pokemart available to use. There are also berries that can be picked on the beach. There however isn't much happening in that area.
Pinkan Island quest
- Main article: Pinkan Island (quest)
When first arriving on the island, an Officer Jenny will give the gist of what is happening on the island, and then leave. The second part of the quest will truely begin once the player leaves to the southern area, Pinkan Island Forest. However beforehand, the Pinkan Ranger will take the player's Pokeballs away, preventing from catching any Pokémon until the quest has been completed.
After the player has chased away Team Rocket from Pinkan Island, the player will be teleported back to Pinkan City and be given back his or her Pokeballs. However, the Pinkan Ranger will prevent access to Pinkan Island Forest until one final task has been completed. The Ranger wants the player to give him a Scyther as well as an Electabuzz, both level 90 or higher, as well as with full happiness. These two Pokémons will be lost forever, so it is better to choose those that would end up being released anyway.
Once both Pokémons have been given, the quest will be fully completed and the player will finally be able to catch Pink Pokémons.
There are 4 Berry Stumps scattered on the beach, which can be noticed by the glitter emanating from them. Picking them up rewards the player with a random berry from the list below, and respawns every 48 hours.
