Location of Black City in Unova.

Black City (Japanese: ブラックシティ Black City) is a city located in the eastern part of the Unova region. Black City is exclusive to Pokémon Black, and features many characters, Trainers, and tasks that do not appear or occur in Pokémon White. It is located to the east of Route 15, and to the south of Route 14.

Black City is dark metropolis corrupted by greed, and is often surrounded by fog. The appearance of Black City varies with the number of characters residing there. When the player enters the city for the very first time, the total number of residents is determined by the number of days it took the player to reach Black City. The number of residents can vary between 12 (minimum occupancy) and 45 (maximum occupancy), 12 of them being Trainers at the maximum. In addition to the visual changes, the city's market will sell items to the player at inflated prices, dependent on which Trainers are in the city.

At maximum occupancy, Black City is a sprawling metropolis with many large buildings and skyscrapers. At low level occupancy there are fewer buildings, which are smaller in size. The Pokémon Center is present regardless of how many people reside in the city.

When using the Entralink feature to visit another player's White Forest or Black City, the player can invite people to come to Black City to increase occupancy; this can enable new items to be purchased and new Trainers to battle.

Demographics

Black City has a total population of 12 at the lowest possible occupancy level or at the maximum occupancy level of 45.
