Cinnabar Island (グレンタウン Guren Town) is an island in Kanto. The Pokémon Mansion is located here. Blaine is the resident Gym Leader here in Generation I and Generation III. The Pokémon Lab is also located here. In Generation II, a volcano erupted leaving only the Pokémon Center and forcing Blaine to move his gym to the Seafoam Islands. The coast on the East side is famous for the Missingno Glitch.
