Alamos Town
Region Sinnoh
Debut The Rise of Darkrai

Alamos Town (Japanese: アラモスタウン Alamos Town) is an anime-exclusive town in Sinnoh that was featured in the movie The Rise of Darkrai. The town's centerpiece is the Space-Time Tower. The town also had a Contest, which Dawn participated in, and lost. The town is the home of Darkrai and it was nearly destroyed while Dialga and Palkia were fighting. There is a garden near the water in where many Pokémon play, and was also where Alicia first met Darkrai, after defending himself from a Roserade, a Kirlia, and a Luxray.

Alamos Town has two brief reappearances in Arceus and the Jewel of Life. Sheena and Kevin were present at its plateau when Palkia returned the town to its proper dimension. Later on, during the credits of the movie, a brief update on Tonio, Alice and Baron Alberto is shown.
