The Fast Ship S.S. Aqua, commonly referred to as simply S.S. Aqua, is a ferry service that runs between Johto and Kanto. It is one of the methods of transportation between Johto and Kanto, alongside the Magnet Train, walking, and flying or teleporting. It travels between Olivine City and Vermilion City. A player can only travel on this ship after defeating the Elite Four.
When the player first rides the ship to Vermilion City, a man will bump into them as they board and explain that he lost his granddaughter. When the player first enters the lower deck, a crewman will deny them access to the rest of the ship, asking them to locate a co-worker who is slacking off on the floor above. The crewman is a Sailor in a previously empty room, and once he is defeated in a Pokémon battle, the crewman below will let the player pass. After traversing through the lower deck, the player will find the man's granddaughter trying to get the captain to play with her. The player takes her back to her grandfather, at which point the S.S. Aqua will arrive in Vermilion City and the player can disembark.
After the initial trip to Kanto (which can happen on any day of the week), the S.S. Aqua can be sailed from Kanto to Johto every Sunday and Wednesday and from Johto to Kanto each Monday and Friday. Trips after the initial one will end when the player sleeps in the bed in their cabin, which heals their party.
Trainers can also be encountered and battled on the ship each voyage. If the player defeats one or more Trainers on the ship and then boards it again for the same voyage (even on the same day), the Trainers can be battled and defeated again, and the player can keep re-boarding and re-battling the Trainers an unlimited number of times. After each voyage the levels of every Pokemon increases by one, up to 20 levels.
There are no Pokémon in this area.
