Solaceon Town (Japanese: ズイタウン Zui Town) is a town in central Sinnoh. It is located between Route 209 and Route 210, while also being the location of Solaceon Ruins. It is a fairly small town with a tiny village community.
Solaceon Town is a temperate town where people and Pokémon can relax. According to the town's locals, there was once nothing there but a road, but people and Pokémon gathered and a town formed. Solaceon Town is populated mostly by Ranchers and Cowgirls, and appears to be a farming community. As mentioned by a local, there were big Pokémon ranches around the town in the past. Most of the town residents live on the western side of town, near the main road. The eastern side of town is full of trees and ledges, resembling a maze. Solaceon Ruins is located on the far east side of town.
Places of interest
- Main article: Pokémon Daycare
Sinnoh's Pokémon Daycare is located here. This is where trainers can drop off and pick up Pokémon from the old couple that lives there. Pokémon left at a daycare gain experience based on how many steps the player takes. It is free to put a Pokémon into the daycare and to take it it costs 100 to take it out, plus an additional 100 per level gained while in the daycare. The Pokémon Daycare can keep up to two Pokémon at a time. Pokémon kept there will occasionally breed and have a Pokémon egg, if certain conditions are right. The old man waits outside the house facing the road, informing the player if they have found an egg. The old woman waits at the counter inside for trainer to pick up and drop off their Pokémon. There will also be a man waiting at a table there, giving the player a Day Care Checker app for their Pokétch. There must be a Pokémon already in the daycare when entering the building for the man to be there.
Pokémon News Press
- Main article: Pokémon News Press
Solaceon Town is also home to the Pokémon News Press building. It is run by two people, who create and print the Sinnoh region's newspaper. The Pokémon News Press is tiny, containing only a TV and a desk, with a writing pad and a computer, but the newspaper is said to have many fans. One of the men asks the player each day to show him a different Pokémon the player has already seen, awarding Poké Balls if the request is granted. The Pokémon he wants to see is often simple to obtain because he only asks for Pokémon already listed in the player's Pokédex. A player who accomplishes this task within 24 hours will be rewarded with three of any type of Poké Ball, except for Master Balls, Cherish Balls and Park Balls. They are featured top story of the newspaper on the computer called the "Weekly Poké Ball Roundup". There are featured articles on new types of Poké Balls.
- Main article: Solaceon Ruins
The Solaceon Ruins is a cave found in the eastern side of Solaceon Town. It is the set of ruins where the player can find the Unown in Sinnoh. The first room has no Pokémon in it and there is writing in the Unown alphabet that indicates which exits to take to get to the last room. The second room has only Unown of the "F" variety, the third has "R" and so on, spelling out the word "friend". The dead-end rooms (reached by not following the Unown alphabet instructions) house the other twenty varieties of Unown. The last room holds four items (Nugget, Rare Candy, Mind Plate, Odd Incense) and an inscription written in Unown script. In Pokémon Platinum the Rare Candy is replaced by HM05 (Defog).
In the eastern-most house of Solaceon Town, living near the Solaceon Ruins, is a woman who will give the player a Seal Case, an item which will hold Poké Ball seals, which can be purchased later in the game in Sunyshore City. There is also a little boy in the house, which is the women's son. He goes into the Solaceon Ruins everyday to learn the Alphabet, which he does by watching the Unown, originally found within the cave. If the boy is shown each of the different forms of Unown, he will give the player ten of the corresponding seal, with the same shape of the Unown.
The population of Solaceon Town is 21, making it a fairly small community for such a large area. This does not include people in the Solaceon Ruins, the Nurse at the Pokémon Center, or the Poké Mart clerks. Most of the townspeople live on the west side of town, near the main road.
