Location of Mt. Coronet in Sinnoh.
Pokémon world locations

Mt. Coronet (Japanese: テンガンざん Mt. Tengan) is the highest mountain in the Sinnoh region. It is part of a long range of mountains that divide the Sinnoh region in half. Most of it is a deep cave, though there are several above-ground areas, in which it snows constantly.

Caves and entrances are cut out of Mt. Coronet to allow travel between the two sides of the Sinnoh, but contains many other tunnels around the mountain. Mt. Coronet has entrances on Route 207 which leads to Oreburgh City, Route 208 which leads to Hearthome City, Route 211 which leads to Celestic Town, and Route 216 which leads to Snowpoint City. The caves inside the mountain have paths blocked by rocks and boulders. There are several pools of water throughout the cave. After the HMs containing Surf, Strength, Defog, Rock Smash, Rock Climb, and Waterfall are obtained, the mountain is fully navigable.

According to one theory, Mt. Coronet is where the Sinnoh region began. When Arceus created Dialga and Palkia, there was only time and space. The Sinnoh region was shaped around Mt. Coronet by Regigigas. During this violent procedure, Stark Mountain was created and Heatran was formed in lava. Arceus created the Adamant, Lustrous, and Griseous Orbs before falling into a never-ending sleep atop the highest point on Mt. Coronet. This is where Spear Pillar is located, which is the meeting place of Dialga and Palkia, as well as the portal to the Distortion World.

Geography

Mt. Coronet stands in the middles of the Sinnoh region, starting from the northern, snowy routes making its way down down to the very southern route, splitting the Sinnoh into two halves. It makes up a huge mountain range, with many peaks, but the true mountain lies right in the center of the region. It is the highest mountain in the Sinnoh region, and perhaps the highest in the Pokémon world. It is said in many legends that the Sinnoh was shaped around Mt. Coronet moved by Regigigas, when he was created. It is said that Arceus, the creator of the Pokémon world, rests at the highest point of the mountain until woken again one day. During Mt. Coronet's creation, Stark Mountain is created during this violent procedure, and Heatran is formed in lava. Mt. Coronet is also the centerpiece in many of the Sinnoh's tales and regions. The stained glass window in Foreign Building has a picture of the mountain with a dazzle of light coming from the summit, while many believe that Mt. Coronet has split Sinnoh forever, with the different colored Shellos proving it.

Coming from the north, on the eastern side of Route 216, Mt. Coronet has an entrance on the side of the mountain, which enters into a long cavern that is shaped like an upside down "L". The Iceberg Ruins can be found in this cavern, recognized by the two small rocks near the entrance of the ruin. By going further south, the cave leads into another chamber, deep within the cave. This floor is covered with deep fog, which makes obstacles hard to see. There is a lake deep within this cavern, that carved out the inside of the mountain. The rare and exclusive Feebas lives in this large lake, but does not appear regularly. Feebas is an elusive find within the depths of the mountain. Instead of fishing in any location as customary with most Pokémon, Feebas is located in only four water blocks in the lake. There is no easy method to determine which block contains Feebas, as the only way is to drop a line into each and every water block on the route. Once hooked, however, Feebas is simple to catch. Traveling further south, is a stairway up to the ground floor. By traveling east then south, the cave entrance from Route 211 can be seen, which will lead out to eastern side of the mountain. The western side of Route 211 can also be accessed, but requires Strength to get across.

File:Coronet1.png
Ground floor

The southern side of the Mt. Coronet can be entered through the Route 207 and Route 208 entrances. This section of the cave is small, with several small pools of water. Some can be traveled across to collect items, or to get across to the other side of the cave. The northern pool of water can be surfed across to make their way to the stairway up the mountain. The only way to get up to the higher section of ground where the stairs are, is to use Rock Climb.

File:Coronet2.png
Upper floor

By going up the stairway, the cave leads to a larger floor. The chamber weaves around in a maze-like structure, where many items can be obtained along the way. By traveling north, then west, then down a narrow gap between two walls, the cave weaves around, up many stairs, and across several bridges. There is a secret exit to the cave, which will end out at the side of the mountain, above the entrance to the western side of Route 211 to the cave. By traveling deeper into this section, the entrance to the next section can be found. In Pokémon Platinum, there is a large barrier in front of the door to the upper floors, until Team Galactic brake it down. The barrier has artwork of Azelf, Mesprit, and Uxie similar to the etching on the wall of the Celestic Ruins. The cave then leads to more small connector caves, which leads to dead ends. One entrance will lead out to the side of the mountain.

File:Coronet3.png
Upper floor

Coming out of the interior of the mountain, the cave comes to an end, exiting to the side of the mountain. The side of the mountain is covered in snow, which can be crossed by traveling along the narrow ledges at the side of the mountain. By traveling through the tall grass, the mountain side can be scaled up to other ledge. At this point there are three pathes; one path traveling east and into another section of the cave, one traveling further up the rocky cliff, and another traveling west, past grassy areas and movable rocks, into another section of the cave. By traveling further up the rocky cliff, a patch of grass and a hidden item under a rock can be found. By entering the cave at the eastern side of the mountain face, another section can be explored. A small river of water, with a raging waterfall can be accessed by traveling east in this section of cave. By traveling up the waterfall, a secret cave section can be located., which contains a Stone Plate in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, or a Adamant Orb and a Lustrous Orb in Pokémon Platinum. In order to press though the maze of Mt. Coronet, the western side of the cave section must be explored. By traveling further on, the path will make its way to the eastern side of the mountain face which also snows constantly. By traveling around this area, there are another two enterances to the caves, one in an indented part of the mountain side, and another further on, past patches of tall grass and movable rocks. The second cave will lead up the mountain, and eventually lead to the summit and Spear Pillar, whereas the the first cave will lead down the mountain, and eventually connect to the first floor and the entreance on Route 211 near Celestic Town.

Mt. Coronet appears in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. Although the player must pass through the mountain several times on their journey through Sinnoh, the most important events within it relate to Team Galactic. Early in the game, Cyrus is encountered in Mt. Coronet's caves when the player travels through to eastern Sinnoh. Later on, Cyrus's plans bring Team Galactic to the mountain once again. Many Galactic Grunts invade the mountain, patrolling inside the inside so no one gets past. In Pokémon Platinum, there is a large barrier in front of the door to the upper floors, so that adventurers don't stumble across Spear Pillar and get lost. Team Galactic brake down the barrier before trying to get to Spear Pillar, letting others go to higher floors.

Spear Pillar

Main article: Spear Pillar

Spear Pillar is located on the peak of Mt. Coronet, the highest point in the Sinnoh region. Spear Pillar contains the ancient ruins of home of Arceus, and the summoning of Dialga or Palkia. At the Spear Pillar in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, Cyrus summons Dialga or Palkia, whose power is too much for him. The legendary Pokémon is left for the hero to defeat or capture. In Pokémon Platinum, Cyrus summons both Dialga and Palkia and accidentally Giratina, who makes a portal to the Distortion World dragging Cyrus in. The player and Cynthia then follow. Dialga and Palkia will be available after defeating the Elite Four and obtaining the Adamant Orb for Dialga and Lustrous Orb for Palkia.

If an Azure Flute is obtained from a special Nintendo event, a staircase can be opened on the Spear Pillar to the Hall of Origin where Arceus waits.

Iceberg Ruins

Main article: Iceberg Ruins

In Pokémon Platinum, the Iceberg Ruins appear deep within the mountain, on the way to Route 216. At first, a NeverMeltIce can be found in the ruins. If a special event Regigigas is in the party, the Ruins will house a Regice. A statue of Regice is present. By confronting the statue, stepping on the 7-dot pattern on the floor and walking up to the statue, Regice will attack.

Part of Mt. Coronet

Despite, in the games, having to travel through Mt. Coronet to arrive at Hearthome City, Ash and his friends have not been shown journeying through the mountain as of yet. However, in Nosing 'Round The Mountain!, they found Alan and Ash battled him at the Mt. Coronet area, because Alan wanted his Nosepass to evolve. Ash and his friends meet a boy called Alan who has a Nosepass. Ash asks for a battle with him and he agrees. The two go and have a real battle, but the battle is then called off by Alan because he wants to battle near Mt. Coronet so his Nosepass can evolve. The mountain has however been seen in the background of some episodes set in areas near the mountain.

In DP110 and DP111, Team Galactic created a giant beam with the Spear Key from Iron Island, in an attempt to locate the Spear Pillar, above Mt. Coronet. Ash battles with Mars and destroys the machine allowing Team Galactic to scan only 60% of Mt. Coronet in their search for the Spear Pillar.

Trivia

  • Mt. Coronet is the only location in Sinnoh where the elusive Pokémon Feebas can be caught. It only appears in four fishing spots in the basement, which change every day.
  • Mt. Coronet emits a special magnetic field. As a result, Magneton and Nosepass can only be evolved into Magnezone and Probopass, respectively, by leveling them up here.
    • The two Pokémon obtainable by evolving in Mt. Coronet have three magnetic units, according to the Pokédex - Probopass has three mini-noses, and Magnezone is made up of three units. They also share both of their abilities.

Name Origin

Mt. Coronet is named after a Coronet, a small crown consisting of ornaments fixed on a metal ring, meaning that Mt. Coronet could be the crown of the Sinnoh. Coronet Peak is also a snowy mountain range in New Zealand.
