Location
Unova Anville Town Map.png
Location of Anville Town in Unova.

Anville Town (Japanese: カナワタウン Kanawa Town) is situated in the northwestern part of the Unova region. It is accessed by riding the Battle Subway's Anville line (shown brown on the subway map) from Gear Station in Nimbasa City; no battles are required to be able to go to this town. On the weekends, some Trainers come to this town to exchange items.

Lost Pansage

In Black 2 and White 2, the School Kid standing near the entrance has lost her Pansage. Her Pansage is being kept by a Depot Agent in front of Musical Theater in Nimbasa City. If the player talks to the Depot Agent after finding out about the lost Pansage, he will return it. When the player returns to Anville Town and talks to the girl, who now has her monkey Pokémon back, she will give the player a BrightPowder and say that a green hair guy (implied to be N) told her that her Pansage's dream is to become a railroad conductor.

Places of interest

Lost-and-found

A Depot Agent handing out lost-and-found items lives in the southeastern house. When the player first talks to him, he will give the player a Rare Candy. After that, he will acquire a new item if the player wins seven consecutive battles on the Battle Subway. So long as he has an item, further streaks of seven will increase the number of that item that he will give the player when they talk to him, up to a maximum of ten.

The turntable

Anville Town is known for its connection with locomotives, and every day a different train engine can be found on the turntable in front of the town's roundhouse, most of them a part of the Battle Subway system of trains. A Worker on the bridge will explain their origins, inner-workings, and/or capabilities.

Traders

Every Saturday and Sunday, except on days when the Worker talks about the Hyperspeed Train, traders are present in town, who ask to trade their items for items in the player's Bag.

Demographics

Pokémon Black and White

Anville Town has a population of 13, excluding the Trainers who come to town during the weekends. It is the third smallest town in the Unova region.

Variable scoring

A flute track will be added to the background theme if the player is near a flautist playing on the bridge overlooking the turntable. When trying to talk to the flautist, instead of dialog, a message saying, "A beautiful tune is spreading throughout the town..." will be displayed. She is there every day of the week.

In the anime

Anville Town in the anime

Jessie and James arrived at Anville Town in Meowth's Scrafty Tactics! having followed the Subway tracks, and stated it would be an important part of their plan. Team Rocket's mobile research lab arrived there in Purrloin: Sweet or Sneaky?. It then appeared at the end of Battle for the Underground! as Ash, Iris and Cilan were looking at the sun going down here, having foiled Team Rocket's plan.

Trivia

  • Anville's Japanese motto is カナワとは交差する鉄の輪 "'Kanawa' refers to intersecting iron rings".
  • Anville Town is the first city or town in the Pokémon world to not be physically connected to another location by a route or cave, yet is not an island.
    • It is also impossible to use Fly to access this town, being the first to do so. It can be only accessed by the Battle Subway Brown Line.
    • It is also the first of two settlements not to be represented by a city or town icon on the map, instead being represented by a generic location icon. The other is the Village Bridge, which does not have any icon.
