    Default Favorite Kanto City/Town

    LeafGreen/FireRed had several cool cities and towns: Which ones did y’all like the most?

    My personal favorite was Saffron City due to its size; I've always liked metropolis-esque settings. I also thought Celadon City was cool since it was basically the commercial district of Kanto. Lavender Town deserves credit too if only for its BGM in my opinion.

    Please explain your choice(s) a little. No spamming! -> this means from now on please include more information than just "I like [whatever] City"!

    I'd have to go with the following towns as I don't have one particular favourite:

    Celadon City ~ Simply because I've always liked how it's a big city and I find it quite pretty.
    Vermilion City ~ I like how it's by the sea and I've always loved the music there.
    Cinnabar Island ~ Island towns has always seemed cool to me for whatever reason. Plus, I like that it has a science lab and the old Pokemon Mansion.

    Celadon would be mine. Out of the two big cities in Kanto, I prefer it over Saffron because it feels more dynamic and varied. It also has better design in my opinion while I think Saffron feels a bit boring and uninspired in comparison. Celadon has some places of interest that I like such as the Department Store, the Game Corner and the mansion. I like the music in Celadon, and it is home to my favorite Kanto Gym Leader, so that's why it is my favorite.

    Cinnabar Island would be my second favorite since it has the mansion and the lab which I like, it also has awesome music and I like the fact that it is a lone city located on an island without anything more to it.

    Although I don't like Kanto very much in general(it is pretty bland compared to regions like Hoenn and Sinnoh),I choose Cinnabar Island because of its good background music(by Kanto standards) and its secluded location.I also find the fact the Gym is closed when you first arrive at the town pretty cool.

    This is a good one, I can quite say I have a favorite, maybe Lavender Town due to its setting and story, but I have a thing for Island 4 (or 5?) because I spent many long hours on there hatching eggs circling the island :3

    Days without 3DS:
    41 and counting
    GOAL: To have a bigger trade shop than varanus_komodoensis & Zold :3
    I have Alpha Sapphire, but my 3DS is broken and I am waiting to receive it repaired.

    Vermillion City is my favorite. I love seaside towns and the overall layout of the city was great.

    i really like fuchsia city, if only because finally getting to it was such a huge pain as a child.

    If kanto was like a toy box, where all pieces are pretty easy to collect, I kinda like how getting to fuchsia city was hard, and forced you to go though tons of stuff, from a sleeping snorlax, to pokemon tower, and the cycling road.

    The safari zone, who contains some of my favorite pokemon, like rhyhorn and scyhter, only added to this.

    I really liked Celadon City because of the BGM and for the fact that it had the casino. Cinnabar Island and Vermillion City are close seconds. Oh, and of course Pallet Town... Nostalgia beat and all. <3

    My personal favorite has always been Celadon City. It is actually a very big city and there is a lot to do. Plus, Celadon's music has always been my favorite of the Kanto's themes since it's just so relaxing.

    Cinnabar Island is my favorite because it's an island. I've always liked islands because they're so much different than mainland.

    I don't know if this one will count, but the 7th island because of the battle tower, yeah I know perhaps not amazing as the battle frontier from Emerald, but I still loved getting to the peak of that building just for fun

    My favorite Kanto town has to be Cerulean City. Big fan of water type Pokemon. Big fan of Misty. Always thought it'd be cool to grow up being an apprentice in her gym. Then of course you've got Bill to the north who happens to be a wealth of knowledge. Then you also have the Cerulean Cave which is just a great way to train. Personally, I think you have a better chance of being a Pokemon Master if you came from Cerulean City.
    I'm typically inactive between Spring and Fall. I'll be on as often as time allows.

    My favorite would be Celadon. I like the music, and its a very calm city in general.

    My favorite Kanto town is probably Lavender Town because of Lavender Town myths to do with the music. Very spooky.
