Hello fellow Pokémon trainers! Today we are travelling to Sinnoh. Pack your things and let’s enjoy this ride together!
Did you know that according to several Sinnoh myths, this region was the first of all the regions in the Pokémon world to have been created? It is said that a single Egg came into being in a void of nothingness and hatched into Arceus, the first Pokémon to be in existence.
When you arrive on this mystical island which resembles the Japanese island of Hokkaido, your first stop will be Twinleaf Town, in the southwestern part of the Sinnoh region. It is a small town with a characteristic smell of fresh new leaves in the air which will make you feel at home. You can stroll near Lake Verity and gather energy before visiting the big city of Jubilife.
Jubilife City is the most modernized city in the region and the sixth-largest city in the Pokémon World. There are many distinctive buildings in Jubilife City, including the TV station, the Pokétch Company, the Trainer’s School and the Global Trade Station where you can trade Pokémon with Trainers around the world!
If you get tired of walking the big city, you can chill at Sandgem Town’s beach. As you arrive to Sandgem Town, located in the south part of the region, you will smell the salty scent of the sea: maybe it is a good time for a dive! And don’t worry, if you need supplies for your Pokémon catching, there’s a Poké Mart in town.
At the very center of the island we find Oreburgh City. Oreburgh City is proud of its mine and as such you can visit the Oreburgh Mining Museum, a large, one floor museum that contains many visual displays as well as facts about coal and the origins of Oreburgh Mine. After your history session, you can head to the Gym, based on Rock-type Pokémon and challenge its leader, Roark. After an intense day, you can travel to Floaroma Town, which is known for its honey and vividly scented flowers that grow everywhere. At Pick a Peck of Colors Flower Shop you can get Berries. The Floaroma Meadow is a great area to relax and get some homemade honey.
After a relaxing day at Floaroma, you can dive into the old city of Eterna, full of signs of history. The first thing you will encounter here is a large statue o fan ancient Pokémon on the east side of town. The Eterna Gym is run by Gardenia, who specializes in Grass-type Pokémon. You can also buy herbs and the Herb Shop and stop by Rad Rickshaw’s Cycle Shop.
Hearthome City is the fifth largest city in the Pokémon world and is home to the Super Contest Hall and a Pokémon Fan Club. Hearthome City is known for being a friendly city where people and Pokémon gather and so it grew into a center of commerce. You can relax at the Pokémon hotel after an exhausting day at the Gym, specialized in Ghost-type Pokémon.
The temperate town of Solaceon is a great place to relax after those days at full. There is a Pokémon Day Care and a News Press in town and you can visit the Solaceon Ruins where you can find the Unown. Worth the visit, right?
After a relaxing day at Solaceon, Veilstone City awaits. It is the eight largest city in the Pokémon world and it is located sea to the north. This city is carved out of steep and rocky mountains, projecting a cold atmosphere. You should shop at the Veilstone Department Store, the main shopping district in the city and get some Lava Cookies! Get some prizes playing at the Veilstone Game Corner and then make a stop at the Gym, based on Fighting-type Pokémon. On the east side of the city, you can see four meteorites. Eerie, right?
Pastoria City was originally founded to protect the Great Marsh, which has grown naturally over the years. It is an interesting place to visit as it is home to rare Pokémon only found in those swamps. The Great Marsh keeps the weather cool in summertime, making it an ideal town for Water Pokémon. It is no surprise that the city’s Gym is based on Water-type Pokémon!
The tiny town of Celestic preserves the history of Sinnoh and the old ways of life. You can find a small shrine that dates back to ancient times right in the center of the town. Legend says that this town has been there since Sinnoh was created. Main attraction here are the Celestic Ruins, but be careful while visiting them!
Canalave City is a port city bisected by a canal which is crossed by a small drawbridge. Here in the city you can walk by its piers, learn a bit more about the Sinnoh myths at the Canalave Library and take the ferry to Iron Island or Fullmoon Island. At the city Gym you can train your Steel-type Pokémon or challenge its Gym Leader, Byron.
We hope you grabbed a sweater back home for our next stop: Snowpoint City. The snow blowing down from the top of the Mt. Coronet causes low temperatures around, making Snowpoint City a winter wonderland with trees and buildings covered in thick snow. The Snowpoint Temple is a noticeable landmark. Can you guess the Pokémon type of this Gym’s city? Yup, you probably guessed right: Ice.
If you are not a fan of the snow, don’t worry, our final stop is Sunyshore City: the major port town around. By the beach you can find the Sunyshore Market, which is one of the world’s largest Seal centers. The city’s Gym specializes in Electric-type Pokémon. As our tour comes to an end, you can spend your last day on the region by getting to the Vista Lighthouse and observe the city from here.
We hope you enjoyed this mini-tour around the Sinnoh region, home to Turtwig, Chimchar and Piplup. Which of these towns and cities would you first visit on your Pokémon trip? 😉
