Cherrygrove City has no Gym; however, like its counterparts Viridian City, Oldale Town, and Sandgem Town, it mainly acts as a tutorial for the player, introducing them to concepts such as the Pokémon Center, Poké Mart, etc.
The bottom half of a lake is seen behind the trees to the northeast of the town, and the upper half can be seen from the southwest of Route 30. It is inaccessible in Pokémon Gold and Silver; however, in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Route 30 allows the player to travel to the pond through an extension. Different Pokémon can be caught depending on where the player caught the Pokémon.
