The Cerulean City Gym is located near the center of the city. The gym is run by Misty and the primary type is Water.

Bike Shop

Here, you can buy a bike for 1,000,000 Poké Dollar.png (which is impossible as the limit for the player to carry is 999,999 Poké Dollar.png) or the player can take a Bike Voucher from the Pokémon Fan Club chairman to receive a free bike.

In Generation II, the Bike Shop was closed due to it moving to Goldenrod City. In Generation IV, the building was open, but nothing was in it.

In made it first appearance in TB007: The Water Flowers of Cerulean City where Misty is dead set against going to Cerulean afraid that if Ash, Pikachu and Brock found out about her sisters, they would laugh at her. When Ash found out that Misty is one of the gym leaders they had a battle but it was interrupted by Team Rocket. After the chaos was dealt with and Ash got the badge as a way of thanking him for defending their gym they head back on the road. It made another appearance in TB061: The Misty Mermaid where Ash, Misty and Brock made a detour there so Misty's Horsea can swim at.
