Shopping Mall Nine (Japanese: ショッピングモール アールナインShopping Mall R9) is the largest shopping center in the Unova region. It is located on Route 9, just outside Opelucid City. The store offers a wide variety of items on its three floors.
Like Department Stores in other regions, all the individual stalls are located on different floors. Unlike these stores, Shopping Mall Nine is fitted with stairs rather than escalators or elevators. (This is because the area is located within a single map of the game.) As a result, accessing different floors is quicker in Shopping Mall Nine than in other department stores.
On the lower level of the store, there is a storage room on the right filled with boxes, each filled with old electrical appliances that Shopping Mall Nine can no longer sell. The player can interact with any box to change Rotom's form, similar to Rotom's Room in the Generation IV games.
This is the first large store not to carry the Department Store name. This reflects Unova's isolation from the other known regions.
Despite Department Stores having been known for their TM selection, the Shopping Mall Nine only sells twoTMs.
