Celadon City might not be the largest city in the entire Kanto region but it is more than well-known amongst most not only for its luxurious buildings and massive department store but because of the Game Corner that rests between the mixture of old and new homes that dot the outskirts of the city. At Celadon City, one can spend their money in a manner of ways, ranging from a serious attack of shopaholic fever to simply wasting money at slots in the hopes of striking it rich. Regardless of one's tastes, both routes serve the same purpose and help this otherwise abnormal city gain the finances it needs to keep itself supported despite the looming shadow of nearby Saffron City. In addition to these wonderful enterprises, it is also known that this city was once the home of Team rocket's Secret HQ, hidden in the basement of the Game Corner. Team Rocket used the Game Corner to fund most if not all of their Kanto-based operations, but after their defeat at the hands of Red, the Game Corner was given to the see and is nor a federally-funded enterprise that respects the individual customer a bit more and makes life easier for those trying to win big, if only because of the lack of merchandise being spent on items in the exchange corner.
Apart from the glitzy atmosphere of the Game Corner and the beautiful appearance of the Department Store, Celadon has one other beautiful thing that is sure to spark a bit of interest of trainers throughout the region: the city's Gym Leader, Erica. Although she does not show herself to the public much and is more of a perfume stylist than anything else, Erica is a powerful fighter whose specialty in the Grass-type has led her to not just become a successful trainer but a successful florist and perfume maker as well. Erica seems to have a bit of an issue battling against trainers that do not like the smell of perfume that much, especially if they happen to be male, and has on more than one occasion barred trainers from ever entering her Gym. Needless, to say, this reckless behavior has placed her in the boiling pot of the Indigo League more than a few times, but she has managed to retain her dignity regardless of the verdict given to her actions. Trainers that hope to get past her will have to rely on either direct assaults with Flying-type attacks or extreme temperatures to overcome her in battle, and even that might not be quite as easy as some would otherwise think. Erica might be a bit of a girly-girl, but that certainly doesn't make her a wimp by any standards.
