Visit Viridian City, the evergreen gateway to the Indigo Plateau. After battling Giovanni for an Earth Badge at the Viridian Gym, sit in on a lesson at the Academy and brush up on the basics! This design is part of my "Visit Kanto" series, a collection of works celebrating points of interest found throughout the first generation of Pokemon. The hand lettering of each city name was inspired by vintage American tourist postcards.

Viridian City is a small city located in western Kanto. In the Generation I and Generation III games, Team Rocket leader Giovanni serves as Leader of the Ground-specialist Viridian Gym, but the Gym is locked until the player has gained the other seven League Badges. Blue is the Gym Leader in the Generation II and Generation IV games and trains Pokémon of various types. Three major paths lead from the city center. To the north is Route 2, as well as Viridian Forest, which lies in the middle of the route, leading to Pewter City. To the south is Route 1, which leads to Pallet Town. To the west is Route 22, leading to Indigo Plateau and the Pokémon League.
