Pallet Town is the first setting of the Pokémon anime and video games. It is the hometown of the protagonist, Ash and his rival's hometown in the games and anime. This town's Pokémon lab is also, where Professor Oak resides and studies Pokémon. Pallet Town appears in Pokémon Red/Blue and Pokémon Yellow with 2 houses, one Red's and one Blue's, and the Laboratory where Professor Oak is located. The Japanese motto is "Pallet is the color of pure white beginnings." It is the smallest town in the game.


Many famous people come from Pallet Town, such as Ash Ketchum, Gary Oak, Red, Blue, Leaf, Chase, Elaine, Trace and Samuel Oak. There are only two routes linking Pallet Town to other places, which means that it doesn't have much commerce.

One of the routes (Route 21 south) is a water route, so they get almost nothing coming in from there; the other is Route 1, the only place where they actually travel on, which is north.

The main trading city is Viridian City, where they get their supplies as there is no Poké Mart or Pokémon Center in the town (although in the game, the player's mom heals him/her). This is where all Pokémon trainers start out, as it is where Professor Oak gives out the Starter Pokémon.

In the anime

In the anime, Pallet Town is Ash's and Gary's hometown. Professor Oak's lab is also in this town, and Ash deposits all his previous Pokémon there.
