Eindoak Town (Japanese: アイントオーク Eindoak) is the setting for the fourteenth movie. It is the relocated home of the "People of the Vale." Long ago, the Kingdom of the Vale engaged in a war which caused a disturbance in the force that kept the land alive and flourishing, the Dragon Force. Left with no other option, the King of the People of the Vale lifted the Sword of the Vale from the ground, and placed it atop a nearby mountain to ease the Dragon Force's fury. The People of the Vale then began anew, and over time erected a village along the mountain ridge where many have come to live. The town now boasts bountiful orchards that supply the town with food.
Eindoak Town is located somewhere between Castelia City and Nimbasa City.
In the anime
Ash, Iris, and Cilan ventured to Eindoak Town on their travels, wanting to participate in Eindoak Town's Harvest Festival battle tournament. On their way, Ash saved a pair of Deerling from falling off a cliff with the help of Victini. Ash managed to get back to his friends through a cavern located near the bottom of the castle. Here he would later find the Dark Stone*/Light Stone*. As soon as the trio reunited, they found their way to the battle tournament, with a little help from Damon. Victini secretly followed close behind them and it secretly powered up Tepig and Scraggy, allowing Ash to win some of his battles. Carlita realized this source of power, and the group were then properly introduced to Victini.
Later, the Mayor of the town, Mannes, told Ash, Iris, and Cilan the history of Eindoak Town and how it came to be. That evening, Damon announced his plan to relocate the Sword of the Vale back to its original location with the help of Victini and Reshiram*/Zekrom*. The descendants of the People of the Vale agreed to this plan, and they allowed Damon to move the Sword of the Vale against Victini's will. This caused the dormant Dragon Force beneath Eindoak to erupt and split the earth into fractions.
When the Sword of the Vale was relocated to its new location next to the ocean, Eindoak still remained unharmed, however now without the Sword of the Vale.

Inside the Pokémon Movie home
The home Pokémon Movie was made available to players for a specific duration. Inside are Pokémon present in the movie, as well as a Victini doll. Players may view a trailer in the movie in the area they arrive in, or go to the Sword of the Vale. By tucking in Reshiram or Zekrom from a Pokémon event, players can access a new area in the Island of Dreams and play a game with a Victini waiting there. Completing the game once allows them to unlock a promotion that allows them to obtain a C-Gear skin featuring one of the two Pokémon - the one they tucked in, specifically.
Eindoak Town is based on a village in France. The Sword of the Vale was based on Mont Saint Michel.
