Pokémon world locations

Stark Mountain (Japanese: ハードマウンテン Hard Mountain) is home to the legendary Pokémon Heatran. The Pokémon is only available on the second visit to the mountain, after revisiting Buck's grandfather's house in the Survival Area. Players are required to have Pokémon with Strength and Rock Smash to proceed through the volcano. After encountering their rival, players will find Buck, who will go with them through the mountain to the point where Heatran is encountered.

In Pokémon Platinum, Charon takes control of Team Galactic and travels through Stark Mountain to take the Magma Stone and capture Heatran. Once the player follows Charon to Heatran's room, with the aid of Buck, Looker arrests Charon and takes the Magma Stone. Buck later returns the Magma Stone after being advised by his grandfather to do so.

Map Information

A rugged, seemingly indestructible rock mountain that is thickly blanketed by the volcanic ash it spews.

Inside the mountain, fissures in spilled and hardened lava form enormous caverns.

Geography

Exterior

Stark Mountain's exterior changes between Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and Pokémon Platinum, however, both maintain the heated feel of the mountain. The road ascends in a huge contour up the mountain and, at that point, Route 227 ends and the exterior of Stark Mountain begins. In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, a huge clearing opens up that contains a large patch of tall grass. The entrance to the interior of the mountain can be found to the west.

In Pokémon Platinum, the exterior is more complex and the path winds around pools of bubbling lava. It is darker and aesthetic features have been enhanced. The large patch of tall grass is still present, but it is not as big. By going northwest, an item can be found in an indented section of track. By traveling to the northeastern corner, a path will open up. By following it, the road will lead through two pools of smoking, bubbling lava around another bend to the entrance of the interior of the mountain.

Buck

After the player crosses the planks they will encounter Buck, who will ask them to investigate a bunch of goons in space suits who are up to no good at the mountain while he returns to the Pokémon Center to heal. After the player enters the inside of Stark Mountain, Buck will return and accompany the player through the cave. Like the other Stat Trainers, Buck will fully heal all of the player's Pokémon after each battle.

Trivia

  • Despite the fact that most mountains start their name with "Mt." (an abbreviation of "Mount"), such as Mt. Moon and Mt. Mortar, Stark Mountain instead only has "Mountain" at the end of its name. It shares this trait with Twist Mountain.
  • The player cannot collect all of the items in the mountain during the first visit, as walking with Buck prevents the use of Rock Climb.
  • The Ace Trainers guarding TM50 ask "What is time?" and "What is space?", referencing Dialga and Palkia.
  • In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, Rebirth Mountain is based on this mountain.
