Location of Nacrene City in Unova.

Nacrene City (Japanese: シッポウシティ Shippou City) is a city in southeastern Unova. It is the location for the second Gym that the player visits in the region, led by Lenora.

Nacrene City is described as having a peculiar cityscape, as it reuses its warehouses built about a century ago. According to the manga, the unique cityscape makes it a popular place for avant-garde artists and is usually the place where trends begin. Castelia City's Gym Leader Burgh is a renowned artist whose hometown is Nacrene City. Nacrene City houses the Nacrene Museum which happens to include the Nacrene Gym.

In the anime

Nacrene City in the anime
Nacrene Museum in the anime

Nacrene City is shown to be a very colorful and artistic city in the anime with water fountains, stained glass windows and an unused railway track. The buildings and warehouses are painted in a variety of different colors. It is also shown to have a Pokémon Center and Battle Club. Weird things are also shown to be sold here.

In Minccino-Neat and Tidy!, Jessie, James and Meowth arrived there, planning to go to the Nacrene Museum.

In A Night in the Nacrene City Museum!, Ash and his friends visited the Nacrene Museum looking for the Nacrene Gym which is closed. The Museum is quite a historical building and features a range of exhibits such as fossils, skeletons, knight's armor and tombs. Hawes is the vice-curator of the museum. Near the back is a library where the gym's entrance is. There was a Yamask causing havoc in the museum.

In The Battle According to Lenora!, Ash battled Lenora in the gym, but was defeated; Team Rocket stole a meteorite from the museum, replacing it with a dummy.

In Rematch at the Nacrene Gym!, Ash had rematch against Lenora and finally won. Its last appearance was in Scraggy-Hatched to be Wild! where Team Rocket got orders by Flint to visit Professor Seger. They went there and he examined the meteorite which was shown to have materials found nowhere on earth.
