The location name forced on Japanese Gold's Pokégear map.
The Haunted House (Japanese: オバケやしき) is an unused location name in Pokémon Gold, Silver and Pokémon Crystal in a list of Johto and Kanto locations, in between 'Ice Path' and 'Pallet Town'.
In the English version of the game, the location name was not translated and was rather localized as N/A; removing the intended meaning of the string.
It is speculated that the Haunted House may have been inspired by the ghost-related legends of Himeji Castle in Kōbe City, a port city compared with Olivine City.
Furthermore, it is not known whether this location has any significance to the Old Chateau (Japanese: もりのようかん, Forest Manor); which is an actual haunted house that was introduced in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, but contributing to this possibility is the fact that Sweet Honey was another feature introduced in Diamond and Pearl but intended as a feature in Pokémon Gold and Silver, in addition to mine cars and tracks (introduced in Diamond and Pearl in Oreburgh Mine).
