Places of interest
Silph Co.'s headquarters
Due to the actions of Team Rocket three years prior to the story, Silph Co. has increased security, and the player is not allowed to enter the upper floors. One of the guards, however, will kindly give the player an Up-Grade for talking to him, which will allow a Porygon to evolve, through a trade, into Porygon2. The alternate forms of Rotom may also be accessed here by attempting to use the broken elevator while a Rotom leads the party.
The Dojo is closed in because the Karate Master is training in Johto's Mt. Mortar.
Magnet Train station
Mr. Psychic's house
Mr. Psychic lives in a small house that is located on the southeastern side of the city, being better accessible by entering Saffron City from the southern entrance. He sits at a table in the middle of the room. When talked to for the first time in every game he is featured on, he will claim to know that the player really wants to receive a gift from him, giving away TM 29 (Psychic) to the player.
The home of a girl with a talent for mimicking other people. When first met, Copycat's Clefairy doll has recently gone missing, being found by a member of the Pokémon Fan Club in Vermilion City. When the player returns her lost doll, Copycat will reward them with a ticket to ride the Magnet Train that travels between Kanto and Johto.
The Saffron Gym is the official Gym of Saffron City. It is based on Psychic-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Sabrina. Trainers who defeat her receive the Marsh Badge. The Saffron Gym is a maze of warp tiles and nine rooms, seven of which contain Trainers, while the other two are Sabrina's room and the entrance.
