In the Kanto based games, after getting the HM/Secret Technique, Cut, the ship sets sail to go around the world. Now in Gen 3, the ship would of course travel between Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn. In Let's Go, Pikachu/Eevee, It travels between the first seven regions (Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, Kalos, and Alola). However, back in gen 1 (back when the games first came out), where did the ship go? How does it travel around the world if Kanto was the only Region at the time?
 
It was a cruise ship, and while I've never been on one, my understanding is that the point of the experience is just being on the ship, so as I kid I just imagined people were vacationing out on the water.

I bet if you had asked the developers at the time, they'd say elsewhere in Japan or another country. Remember that while the current Pokemon world is more or less a cartoonified parallel to ours, back then the idea was that it even more closely resembled the real world-- monster studies began in France per the infamous guidebook from that time, and Kanto is the only region to share its name with the location it's based off of. And Pokemon 2 was supposed to take you all around Japan, not just two regions of it.

It went to the bottom of the ocean.

Looking at the Lets Go map... it cannot even leave Vermillion due to rocks being in the way lol.
