Location
Unova Castelia City Map.png
Location of Castelia City in Unova.

Castelia City (Japanese: ヒウンシティ Hiun City) is a large seaside city located in south central Unova. Unlike past cities, Castelia is a huge, sprawling metropolis, sporting many towering skyscrapers and other tall buildings. The city exists on Unova's central peninsula, south of the desert and north of the sea, making for a perfect harbor city.

The city has only two possible entrances on foot: from the desert in the north, and from Unova's eastern third by way of the Sky Arrow Bridge.

Castelia City is geographically the largest city in the Pokémon world, and contains many structural elements that have not been seen in cities in other regions. The city's core is a central business district, with huge skyscrapers and other commercial buildings; a series of alleyways lead into this core, where smaller shops are set up among city traffic. The city's outskirts are bounded on all sides by harbor, where ships provide traffic to other regions and nations in the Pokémon world.

Trivia

Pikachu inside the building
  • Even though it was officially stated that no Pokémon from previous generations would appear in Pokémon Black and White before obtaining the National Pokédex, a Pikachu can be seen with a Hiker inside the same building as the Name Rater in Castelia City. Another Pikachu is depicted on a billboard in the city, above the Pokemon center. They most likely meant that players could not obtain or battle any Pokémon before the National Pokédex, however.
