Resort Area


Location
File:Resort Area.png
Location of Resort Area in Sinnoh.
This article is about the location in the Battle Zone. For the Pokéwalker Route, see Resort (Pokéwalker Route).

The Resort Area (Japanese: リゾートエリア Resort Area) is a small, town-like area on the northeastern island of Sinnoh. This area is home to the Ribbon Syndicate, and there is no Poké Mart or similar establishment here. This is probably due to the fact that Poké Marts focus on typical Pokémon battling and therefore serve no useful purpose in a place that centers around Coordinators and contests. In fact, there is an Ace Trainer by the Pokémon Center who asks "If there's no shop here, how am I meant to stock up on items?"

Places of interest

Ribbon Syndicate

Main article: Ribbon Syndicate

The Ribbon Syndicate is a difficult to miss building with its large size and giant decorative ribbon over the doorway. A Coordinator must have at least 10 different kinds of Ribbons spread among their current Pokémon party to gain access to the building. One of the notable things about the syndicate is that they offer incredibly expensive ribbons, which act mostly as signs of status rather than merit, with prices reaching up to PokémonDollar.png999,999 for a Royal Gorgeous Ribbon. The syndicate also features a spa on the top floor. A visit to this spa, like grooming in the earlier games, makes a Pokémon more friendly. They can only accept five members a day and a trainer who receives a massage may not receive another until the next day.

Villa

Main article: Villa

In Pokémon Platinum, when the player arrives at the Resort Area, he/she will be shown into a house of his/her own. It can be then used similarly to a secret base. It will, however, also be visited by others like the Sinnoh Gym Leaders, Professor Rowan, his assistant, the player's rival, and the player's mom.

Demographics

The population of Resort Area is 11, excluding the Ribbon Syndicate, in which case it would be 19.

Trivia

  • The Resort Area is, as of Pokémon Platinum, the only place where there are non-glitch Pokémon available to capture at levels above 80.
    • It is also one of two places where a Pokémon can be caught at level 1, the other being Snowpoint Temple.

Name origin

The name may refer to the fact that this area is very peaceful, as well as the fact that the Ribbon Syndicate, into which only very skilled Coordinators can enter, is located here.
