View Full Version : Cerise Island

Does anyone know what Cerise Island (From Pokemon Special/Pokemon Adventures) was originally called in the Japanese manga?
Also, who thinks the Elite Four really lived there? Because I don't really see them as the type to camp out on a deserted rock in the middle of nowhere for long periods of time...

1. I honestly believe it's Cerise in both versions.
2. I do, because the E4 is cool like that. Pokémon Trainers camp out all the time, and these guys are no different.

Cerise is a colour red. I think the island looks like the Shellder on Slowking's head, maybe a hint to the GSC generation.

nah, i think it was called 'salt' island. thats wat it is referred to in the manga thats out in singapore. sumtimes they translate the japanese words without checking to see if it was called 'salt' island in the north american translations.

1)No idea. I don't have those volumes...yet. (all mine seem to end up being in japanese anyway.)
2)Actually, I think the Elite Four themselves live either at the Indigo Plateau, or their respective homes, (Lorelei-->Four Island) but they could've lived at Cerise Island. I'm sure they weren't too keen on buildings anyway, judging by their plan. < <;;

In the manga, how could they live at the Indigo Plateau? The Elite Four was already notorious for being non-government friendly, and they're not so stupid that they'd live in a government-run building.

Hmm...good point. So I guess I would think they lived on Cerise or in their respective homes, Lance to Blackthorn or whatever, and Lorelei to Four Island, and Agatha/Bruno to wherever they live.
As for the name, I still don't know. Sorry. ^_^;;

Good point, but Clair mentions that she hasn't seen Lance for forever in the later GSC episodes, at least to my knowledge, so he couldn't exactly live in Blackthorn. And I wouldn't bet on Viridian either.
On a related note, does Indigo Plateau exist in the Special manga? *Can't remember*

Yes, the league tournament is held there.
