Celestic Town (Japanese: カンナギタウン Kannagi Town) is a town in the region of Sinnoh. It is a tiny town that preserves the history of Sinnoh and the old ways of life. The center of town has a small shrine that dates back to ancient times. It is one of the smallest towns in the entire region. It is also one of the oldest, and some say the town has been there since Sinnoh was created. It is the hometown of Cynthia's family and of Kalos Elite Four member Drasna's grandparents.

Places of interest

Cynthia's family's house

After Team Galactic is defeated at Mt. Coronet, players can come here to see a picture of the mascot for their game's counterpart version (Dialga for Pearl and Palkia for Diamond) to add to the Pokédex.

Celestic Ruins

Inside a cave, in the center of the town, are etchings telling the legend of Azelf, Mesprit, and Uxie. However, in the anime, it was shown to be like actual ruins, with pillars and a temple-like structure. Found inside is a fresco involving the lake guardians. It was somewhat destroyed by Team Galactic's raid on the Research Center in Losing its Lustrous! and Double Team Turnover!.

In Pokémon Platinum, an event is unlocked here after the Stark Mountain storyline is completed. When the painting at the rear of the ruins is examined, Cynthia will appear and give her theory to the painting's meaning.

Cynthia: This cave painting... It's always been described this way. The light in the center represents either DIALGA or PALKIA appearing at the Spear Pillar. The three lights around it were thought to be UXIE, MESPRIT, and AZELF.

May I continue?

But, then, I realized that there may be another way of interpreting this. Could this triangle of lights actually represent a different trio? Could they be DIALGA, PALKIA, and GIRATINA instead? And the large light at their center. Does it represent something else? Could it be what created this world of ours?

May I continue for a little bit longer?

Thank you for listening to my theory. Do you know of the ancient Plates they find all over Sinnoh? One of them had this engraved on it. "Two beings of time and space set free from the Original One." I think this quote, too, points to the presence of another Pokémon. A Pokémon even more powerful than DIALGA or PALKIA. Does that sound plausible to you? I'm not quite sure how GIRATINA fits into this scheme of things, but... It's said that in the Distortion World, neither time nor space were stable. I think that tells us something about GIRATINA, the only Pokémon there. It must have been as powerful as DIALGA and PALKIA, the rulers of time and space. In some way, though, GIRATINA has to have a power opposite of theirs.

I'm sorry this is so long. May I say one last bit?

A long time ago, I wonder what sort of person painted this? DIALGA's Roar of Time... PALKIA's Spacial Rend... To the people back then, those Pokémon really must have appeared to rule over time and space. Seeing them must have shaken the people to their very core. This painting represents those feelings of awe, wonder, and everything else. It passed that memory to countless people, eventually becoming a myth... That's what I believe as a researcher of myths.

I think I let myself get carried away and talked for far too long. I'm sorry, and thank you. Let's meet again.

Cynthia then leaves the cave and ends the event.

If the player responds with "no" when Cynthia asks if she can continue, she will respond with:

I'm so sorry. I let myself get carried away...

Cynthia then leaves the cave and ends the event.

Celestic Town Historical Research Center

Main article: Celestic Town Historical Research Center

The Celestic Town Historical Research Center is an anime-exclusive building that houses rare artifacts such as the Lustrous Orb. The Celestic Ruins is directly behind the building, and this is where the Lustrous Orb was discovered.

Demographics

Pokémon Diamond Pearl and Platinum

The population of Celestic Town is 22, making it the third least populous town in the Sinnoh region. Most of Cynthia's family lives here.

Shop

There is no Poké Mart in the town, so an elderly couple run a shop out of their house. A man standing in the shop gives away three pairs of glasses to the player depending on the time of day. He gives away Choice Specs in the morning, BlackGlasses during the day, and Wise Glasses at night.

In the anime

Celestic Town Historical Research Center

In the anime, Celestic Town is the hometown of the Sinnoh League Pokémon Champion Cynthia, her grandmother and the Head of the Celestic Town Historical Research Center Professor Carolina, and Lila, a famous Pokémon Stylist and a former Pokémon Coordinator who is also known as the "Tiger Lily of Celestic Town".

Ash, Dawn, and Brock arrived in Celestic in Battling The Generation Gap!. Dawn was eager to visit Lila's fashion store and meet the woman who broke her mother's winning streak. Ash, however, was with his mind set on finding a way to counter Fantina's Pokémon's Hypnosis and decided to train for his Gym battle instead. When Dawn arrived at the store, the receptionist told her that Lila wasn't there and would spend the whole day off, much to Dawn's disappointment.

Celestic Town Contest Hall

Later, at the Contest Hall, Dawn discovered that Lila took the day off to compete in the Celestic Contest. In the Appeals Round, Lila impressed the three judges by showing off the unique characteristics of her Cherrim. Dawn also did a good job in the round, having Buneary creating an ice sculpture to slide on. Jessilina, however, failed to make the cut and was knocked out of the competition. In the Battle Round, Dawn and Lila both defeated their first two opponents and reached the Contest finals. Dawn had some problems at the beginning as Lila's Delcatty's Sing and Cute Charm were preventing her Ambipom from battling properly, but in the end she managed to defeat her mother's childhood rival and win the coveted Celestic Ribbon, her third Contest Ribbon overall.

Ash and his friends visited the town's research center in Losing Its Lustrous!, where they, together with Cynthia, her grandmother, and Officer Jenny's police officers, tried to stop Team Galactic from stealing the Lustrous Orb. However, they were unsuccessful, and in Double Team Turnover!, the villainous team left the town with two of the timespace orbs in their possession.

Trivia

  • Celestic's Japanese town motto is むかしを つたえる まち "A town that conveys the past".
  • Celestic Town's music is the same as Eterna City's, which is a neighboring town of Celestic.
  • The shrine in the middle of town bears a striking resemblance to the shrine found in Ilex Forest, Johto in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. Coincidentally, Celestic's name shares its first four letters with Celebi.
  • In the games, there are no televisions in this town.
