Location
File:Orre Pyrite Town map.png
Location of Pyrite Town in Orre.

Pyrite Town (Japanese: パイラタウン Pyra Town) is a large town located in southwest Orre. The town is hewn out of a crimson-colored canyon and is laced with bits of old trash and mining debris, the latter a reminder of the town's mining past. Most buildings and machinery found within Pyrite are saturated with rust.

Pyrite is an honorable town of thugs and scoundrels where Shadow Pokémon were once distributed before Wes and Rui, the protagonists of Pokémon Colosseum, put a stop to it. Once a mining town, most of the residents have resorted to a life of crime since the town's livelihood began to wane. However, rumors about the levels of crime in Pyrite appear to be exaggerated slightly. It is said that people who stay in Pyrite for a long time take on the town's characteristics. Pyrite is known locally as "the town of earth, wind, and money".

A large chasm separates Pyrite Colosseum from the rest of the town; however, a bridge over the chasm provides access between the two areas. The chasm extends as deep as The Under, a subterranean city situated directly beneath Pyrite. Originally, The Under and Pyrite Town were twin cities of a mining community. However, traffic between The Under and Pyrite Town slowed to a trickle once the mine was closed. After the events of Pokémon Colosseum, The Under's residents moved upward to Pyrite and The Under itself was filled in; however, the Pyrite portion of the chasm remains.

The town's police department is based in a non-descript building on the southern edge of town. It, along with the jail inside, is manned by Chief Sherles and the incompetent Officer Johnson.

Places of interest

Duel Square

Duel Square is a location in the center of Pyrite Town where roughneck Pokémon Trainers gather for battles. Outsiders to Pyrite Town soon find that they literally can't say "no" to the challenges of the local Pokémon Trainers.

Duking's house

Duking's house is in the southwestern portion of Pyrite. Duking is the closest thing Pyrite has to a leader or mayor; however, that appears to be because of his size rather than a formal election. Underneath Duking's house was one of the Kids Grid nodes.

Fateen's Fortune Telling

At the very southern edge of the town is Fateen's Fortune Telling. The old woman, Fateen, is also known as "the mother of Pyrite Town". Most of the locals look to her for advice in nearly every aspect of their lives. If Wes and Rui or Michael visit Fateen, she will give them hints on where to go next to progress the storyline.

Miror B.'s Hideout / ONBS

Main articles: Miror B.'s Hideout and ONBS

Overshadowing the southeastern edge of the chasm is a three-story building that was abandoned until Miror B. turned it into his hideout prior to the events of Pokémon Colosseum. Once Miror B. was defeated by Wes and Rui, the building remained empty again until the former members of the Kids Grid converted the building into the home of ONBS sometime prior to the events of Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. Like the Kids Grid, ONBS has a noticeable anti-Cipher mindset.

Pyrite Colosseum

Main article: Pyrite Colosseum

Pyrite Colosseum is located in the northernmost part of town; in fact, it is the only building located north of the chasm. Although it appears to be dilapidated, it is still functional. Miror B. once dispensed Shadow Pokémon to Trainers who won challenges in the Colosseum.

The Colosseum, as well as most of the town, is powered by a windmill-driven power station on the southwestern edge of the chasm.

Pyrite Super Grand Hotel

The Pyrite Super Grand Hotel is located in western Pyrite across from the Poké Mart. A one-night stay at the Super Grand costs 100 Poké Dollars. Unlike most of Pyrite, the building is fairly upscale in nature.

Development

Concept art reveals that the bridge over the chasm was not in the original plans for the town. Instead, the player would have to travel through the mines to the east to reach the colosseum. The colosseum was initially a globe that towered over the town. The dilapidated look was added later and the ground it stands on was placed at a much lower level.

Name origin

Pyrite Town is named for the mineral pyrite, often known colloquially as "fool's gold". However, it may also be a play on the word "pirate", possibly due to the presence of thieves and criminals.
