Location

Location of Accumula Town in Unova.

Accumula Town (Japanese: カラクサタウン Karakusa Town) is a small town situated in the southeastern part of the Unova region. It is the first place where the player meets Ghetsis, Team Plasma, and N.

Places of interest

Town square

In the center of the town is an open, park-like area. It is here that Team Plasma make their first speech, and Ghetsis encourages the citizens of Accumula to release their Pokémon. After Ghetsis leaves, N appears out of the crowd and tries to listen and talk to the player's Pokémon. It is later revealed that the Pokémon told N that it was happy to be with the player. After he communicates with the player's Pokémon, he challenges the player to a battle.

Pokémon rock-paper-scissors

In a house in the north-west of town, there is a little girl who will challenge the player to a game of Pokémon rock-paper-scissors. Instead of using rock, paper, and scissors, this game uses Fire, Grass, and Water.

Demographics

Accumula Town has a total population of 30.

Variable scoring

Piano and percussion tracks can be added to Accumula Town's background theme by speaking to a pianist and drummer residing in a house in the northeast section of town. In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, the piano track cannot be added until the player has shown the pianist a Kricketot and a Whismur.
