Places of interest

Anistar Gym

Main article: Anistar Gym

The Anistar Gym is the official Gym of Anistar City, whose Gym Leader is Olympia and specializes in Psychic-type Pokémon.


In the northern part of town is a café the player pays to enter. Daily, patrons inside will show off a Pokémon that is indexed by the Pokédex if previously unseen. More Pokémon may be seen depending on where the player chooses to sit, including Legendary Pokémon. If the player has seen every Pokémon available inside the Café, the waiter will comment and ask if they are sure about paying to come in. If the player decides not to enter, the waiter will tell the player that he will make the Café into something they will love by their next visit.

Hidden Power Checker

After providing the player TM10 (Hidden Power), a man in the house next to the boutique will tell the player what type Hidden Power will act as for any Pokémon he is shown, provided that it can learn the move by TM.


The Sundial to the north of the city is used in the post-game to upgrade the Mega Ring. This also allows the player to find the Mega Stones hidden throughout Kalos.

Every day, when the game time reaches 8 PM, the rings of the sundial start to spin one by one as the sun shines through the hole in the crystal. Falling sparkles from the sky also make it look like it's snowing both around the sundial and in the town itself. The sparkles stop after ten minutes, and the rings themselves stop spinning one by one just after 9 PM.

In the post-game, after the player defeats Serena or Calem at Kiloude City, the player learns that Professor Sycamore is waiting at the sundial with information on the Mega Ring (he will not appear until the rival is defeated). At the sundial, Professor Sycamore tells the player that he has discovered a way to level up the Mega Ring. He tells the player to touch the sundial with the Mega Ring; after doing so, he reveals that the Mega Ring will now resonate with Mega Stones that are underground. He explains that you can only find those Mega Stones while the sundial is active between 8 and 9 PM; it will not work at any other time.

Old man's house

In the house two spots north of the boutique, an old man can be found depressed because of the death of his wife. He will ask the player to lend him any Pokémon level 5 or under to keep him company for the time being. After defeating the Elite Four, the player can return to the house only to find that the old man has passed away and left behind a Poké Ball containing the Pokémon lent to him, a letter thanking the player for their helping him in his last moments, and a Comet Shard. However, if the player has a full team, they cannot take the Pokémon back until an open spot is made. Also, if the player has already defeated the Elite Four, they will need to do it again in order to receive the Comet Shard.

Memory Girl

Next to the entrance of the Pokémon Center is a girl who can read Pokémon memories. She can tell the player things like whether the Pokémon was hatched from an Egg, or a particular situation where it was used in battle. If a Pokémon is traded from another player or is fed treats by someone, she can tell the player these facts as well. For example, a Bulbasaur hatched and traded to another player might generate a message like this: "Venusaur hatched from an Egg and saw Trainer 1 for the first time at...a large city. The Pokémon remembers that it was restless. And...Venusaur was raised by Trainer 2 and evolved at a snow-swept road. The Pokémon remembers that it got light-hearted."

  • Anistar's Japanese motto is 星巡る 時告げの 街 "The starry timekeeping city".
  • Anistar City is similar to Mossdeep City in that both have Psychic-type Gym Leaders who award the seventh badge for each region, and both have a connection with outer space.


Anistar City's real-life counterpart is the city of Strasbourg, where traces of human occupation have been found dating back 600,000 years. Strasbourg's entire city center has been designated a World Heritage Site.
