View Full Version : Fuchsia

This southern city was once a popular destination for tourists and trainers, its centerpiece, the Safari Zone, attracting throngs for the challenge of capturing rare and foreign Pokémon. Since the disasters, however, waste washed down from Vermillion and Saffron have turned the city into a toxic swamp. Poisonous Pokémon have migrated to the old Safari Zone, taking it up as a home while most of the old population fled north. While Fuchsia itself is largely abandoned, a few holdouts and researchers still linger in the south of the city, mostly in an attempt to revive and clean up the city.

Fuchsia City
Fuchsia and its surrounding areas have become largely empty, now a swampy expanse filled with sludge-loving Pokémon. Some houses still stand in decent condition, but most of them have been flooded and are slowly beginning to deteriorate. In the south of the city, a small population of residents live in small camps near the coast, taking advantage of a small amount of fresh water which attracts the occasional Pokémon. Resources are scarce in this area, so many of the citizens are looking for a few supplies, and would reward you if you are willing to help them.

Fuchsia Revitalization Coalition Headquarters - A small organization of Fuchsia natives have returned to the city in hopes of bringing it back to its former glory. These ambitious young organizers wish to clean up the city and make it into a flourishing green area once again. In hopes of promoting these efforts, they have set up a small Nursery and Berry shop, the funds from which go directly to rebuilding the city at large. Often, they'll be looking for a bit of assistance as well, petitioning traveling trainers to lend a hand.

Fuchsia City Gym - The Fuschia City Gym still stands in its original location, though it has been radically renovated. The Gym is fairly well maintained and one of the few places with consistent access to potable water and comestible food, with their own water filtration system and a small garden in the center. The relatively traditional dojo-style building has quite a few rooms set aside for training, though some sessions are conducted in the swamp by Hebiko, a martial arts master and ecologist. She co-leads the Gym under the watchful eye of her grandmother, Kumoko, who shows her wisdom in her battling.

Fuchsia City Pokémon Center - After the destruction of the old Center, the Fuchsia Pokémon Center was rebuilt as a part of the Gym, done in the same traditional style as the Gym itself. Despite its traditional look, its staff is ready and able to help weary travelers with their salvaged equipment and provide them with a traditional ryokan-style room for a quiet night's sleep.

Venom Shore
Southern Fuchsia is bordered by the Cinnabar Sea, creating a stretch of beaches that have long been the go-to point for access to the southern waters. Since the area's contamination, however, the shore has been polluted heavily, driving away much of the Pokémon. New inhabitants that can tolerate the pollution have began to crop up, however, making it an ideal place for collectors to find some Pokémon not found normally in the area.

Kanto Safari Zone
Thanks to efforts taken by Balboa to isolate the area from its surrounding environment, the Kanto Safari Zone has suffered far less damage than Fuchsia City proper, but much of the land has now been contaminated or flooded with toxic waste. It is, however, the only area where plants have continued to grow, though large patches of dead grass and trees are scattered about. Some of the ponds in the Zone are still fairly potable, making it a common gathering place for Pokémon in the area. Some reports have stated that there are still a few of the Safari Zone's original inhabitants lingering around these fresh water sources, though most of its visitors are Poison-types.

Routes 13, 14 & 15
What used to be green forests and grassy cliffs has now turned into a rather swampy marshland. While nowhere near as toxic as the areas to the west, the once dry and lush routes are now quite muddy and soggy, making travel somewhat difficult. Route 15, right outside the city, is the wettest area, effectively a salt marsh. Route 14 is similarly flooded, though the old road is mostly intact. Route 13 is the driest area by far, with the old fence maze still mostly standing, but the ground is now wet and a bit harder to navigate, though it dries out almost entirely by the time you reach the southern shore of Lavender Bay.
