Ecruteak, Olivine, or Goldenrod.

Ecruteak is a nice place, close to Goldenrod, and in the route outside, I can find the basic form of my favorite Pokemon.

Olivine is by the sea so one can go to the beach whenever, and it's semi-close to Goldenrod.

Goldenrod has everything, but if it were any bigger, it would be easy to get lost. And of course, you'd probably only be able to get an apartment.

Newbark Town: Because well its basically the beginning of the Johto region and the pokemon near there are pretty weak and good for training for a rookie/beginning trainer

Ecruteak City: I like the whole Japanese style thing it has going, plus i can catch a Growlithe and a Mareep on the routes near it

Olivine City: It's near the Sea

Kanto (Pallet Town): I'd have an oppurtunity get a Charmander

I suppose I should answer my own topic! :p

I love Johto, however if I had to pin point one or two places where'd I'd live, it'd be either Mahogany Town, or Olivine City. The former because it seems like quaint and quiet little town, and the latter because it's open and vast, it's right next to The Battle Frontier, plus, it has a beach!

Blackthorn City. It is just nice and basic, and it has the Dragon Den.

Hmm, I'd probably go with either Ecruteak or Violet, as they're Goldenrod-adjacent. I don't think I'm suited for living in the big city, but I'd like to be able to make visits conveniently. Of these two, I'm leaning towards Ecruteak because of its distinct flavor and its closeness to other attractions such as the beach at Olivine and the Lake of Rage.

My favorite city is Olivine City because its by water and its one of the bigger settlements in the region, but if I wanted to live elsewhere I would choose Goldenrod city because its the biggest city in Johto and it has a department store.

I would live in Cianwood because it seems like a calm town next to water. Being close to the safari zone is like being next to the zoo so that's cool. Also my Pokemon can get some good training at the gym full of fighting type Pokemon.

I would live in Goldenrod for many reasons. Like everyone has said, Goldenrod has alot of stuff. Pokeathlon, Radio Tower, game corner, underground, park to the north, day care to the south, Dept store, and the train station. I loved this city ever since G/S/C, and that will never change. I sometimes wish the Safari Zone and battle frontier where there, but Goldenrod can't have EVERYTHING. I would have to say mahogany as a close 2nd. I remember going there in G/S/C and thinking it was a secret town or something. I like the Red Gyarados event as a whole, because i never expected such a cool event. I also love it because of Girafarig (one of my favorite Johto Pokemon) being really close!

I would love to live in Olivine, and be at peace with the sea. I love that place. So calm. Near a lot of islands, I would become a water trainer there. Then I'd use that train to go to Saffron, and then to Cerulean to become the new Gym Leader there.

Ecruteak because I find Morty an amazing gym leader, plus that's where Ho-Oh's history began. The environment is also really beautiful!

I'd either go for Ecruteak or Violet. They've got a mysterious aura that I just simply love.

I would have to live in Ecruteak because I would be fascinated by all the myths concerning Ho-oh, Suicune, Raikou, and Entei. (And perhaps see them.)

I'd live in New Bark Town just because there's a guy that hands out Pokémon like candy.
No, but I'd probably have to live in either Goldenrod, or whatever city is closest to the Pokémon League (I don't want to turn my DS on to check ) so I could have a steady flow of good challengers

Azalea or Ecruteak. Azalea because it's peaceful and slowpokes and it is next to a forest I can explore all I want. And if I ever did have the need to go to a city I can just go through the forest and there's Goldenrod City right beyond it. As for Ecruteak I have always loved the buildings there and the history that is behind its towers and it's also small and peaceful. And again, if I ever needed to go to the city for some reason Goldenrod City isn't too far away.

keep smiling

I would love to live in Johto in general, because there isn't one place there that I wouldn't enjoy living in! Maybe that just means I like the friendly and chill atmosphere of the Pokemon universe in general, but there is no other region I'd rather live. Not by a long shot.

I'd love to live in Azalea Town, not because it has aspects that I like in real life, but mostly because it reminds me most of my childhood in Cebu City (I know Azalea isn't a city, haha!). It's just such a chill place, like peaceful living and ish like that. It's surrounded by a forest, and its atmosphere and location gave me a kind of looking-into-the-future and thinking-of-the-old-times feeling!

I would like walking around with that awesome music playing overhead all the time, as if that's actually how it works

Also, these!

I'd so live in Ecruteak or Cianwood. Reason for Ecruteak is that I love the pagoda style houses and Japanese themed music, and I really like Bell Tower.

Olivine. I would love to live there because it seems really peaceful there, and you got a beach close by! Also lighthouses are cool hah.

Olivine, because it's right next to the beach. And the pretty Glitter Lighthouse. And the Olivine Cafe. It seems like a pretty nice place to live in general.
A nice seaside town would be perfect for me. The beauty of the city and the calm, relaxing ocean air would be a major attraction for me.

Here let me break this down to real life expenses and everything.

New Bark Town and Cherrygrove City are in BFE so lower crime rate and less expenses

Violet City, Azalea Town, and Blackthorn City is a little bigger so more places to work, eat, shop, etc but more pricey.

Goldenrod City, pretty much the NYC of Pokemon. The crime rate would be high and cost of living would be brutal, so yea.

Ecruteak City, is the suburbs of Goldenrod City so it would be a little pricey and bad crime rate.

Olivine City and Cianwood City, lets get real here. They're on the beach, you know how much beach houses cost? Yea lol

Mahogany Town - Cold AF, I think I'll pass.

I think I'd do good in Violet City or Azalea Town.
