Pokémon world locations

N's Castle (Japanese: Nの城 N's Castle) is the location where ReshiramB or ZekromW can be caught. It is Team Plasma's main building, and is owned by N.

The Team Plasma Grunt in the Pokémon League Pokémon Center and Looker refer to the castle as Team Plasma's castle.

After the events here in Black and White, the castle cannot be visited again; however, in Black 2 and White 2, the player can access its ruins from Victory Road. In these games, its location is unmarked on map until player visits it.

N's Castle rising behind the Champion's room

After defeating the Elite Four, this castle rises from the ground and attaches itself to the Pokémon League building. According to a Team Plasma Grunt, the castle was being secretly built for several years by overworking Pokémon that were taken away from other Trainers.

As the player enters the first floor, the player is stopped by six of the Seven Sages, who attempt to stop him or her. However, the Gym Leaders of Unova (with the exception of Cilan, Chili, and Cress as Bianca was apparently unable to reach them in time) intercept the surprise attack, allowing the player to continue.

On the second floor, a member of the Shadow Triad directs the player to a room where two women await him or her, introducing themselves as Anthea and Concordia. Anthea heals the player's party and Concordia tells the player about N's childhood. A room on the third floor contains a PC that will allow the player to rearrange the party as well. In the same room, scientists mention that now, they could infiltrate the Pokémon Storage System to even release the Pokémon from Trainers' PC Boxes. Team Plasma Grunts are scattered about the other rooms; however, they will not fight, celebrating victory, or thinking of saying goodbye to their Pokémon. One of these Grunts will allow the player to return to the Pokémon League.

N's room resides on the fourth floor. It is decorated in a childish manner, with cloud wallpaper and floor covering as well as there being many toys strewn about the area, many of which can be interacted with. Some of them show sign of recent usage (such as the train set) and some of which denote usage by Pokémon as well as humans, such as the skating ramp which upon inspection is covered in claw marks and scratches. There is a home basketball hoop installed on the west wall, before which lies a basketball with the word "Harmonia" inscribed on it—N and Ghetsis's surname.

Right before the final battle with N, the legendary mascot of either Pokémon Black or Pokémon White emerges. The respective legendary Pokémon can now be caught, and if there is space in the party, the legendary Pokémon will be used in the battle against N, where it is also first in the party. Otherwise, it is possible to swap the legendary Pokémon from the PC to the party.

During the battle with N, he will use the legendary Pokémon opposite of the game's mascot.

After defeating N, the player must battle Ghetsis, who reveals that he was manipulating N and Team Plasma in order to achieve his own goals.

In Pokémon Black and White 2, the ruins of N's Castle can accessed from a large cavern that is located within Victory Road. However, the remmants of the castle can only be accessed after the player is entered into the Hall of Fame.

After the player has defeated the Champion, N's Zoroark will stop blocking the entrance on Victory Road and lead the player to the ruins of N's Castle, which consists of the remaining floors and rooms of the castle. After entering the castle, the player and N will walk around the ruins that used to be N's Castle, including N's room and the castle's throne room. In the throne room, N will ask the player to battle him with ZekromB2/ReshiramW2. After the player defeats him, N will revert his dragon to its dormant state—the Dark StoneB2/Light StoneW2—and gives it to the player to summon ZekromB2/ReshiramW2 at Dragonspiral Tower to catch.

After catching ZekromB2/ReshiramW2, N appears in Nimbasa City near the Rondez-View Ferris Wheel. After a ride with him, he will return to his castle for a rematch with different Pokemon depending on the season.
