Faraway place

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

Faraway place (Japanese: 遠い場所 faraway place) is a location placeholder found in the core series games, first used in the Generation IV games. This placeholder data is used when trading over a Pokémon from another Pokémon game which was captured in a new location not found in the older game.

Faraway place is also occasionally used as a location for Pokémon events, and has no corresponding location in any game.

Mechanics

Faraway place is the met location displayed when a Pokémon is met in a location in one game, then viewed in a game in which that location does not exist.

For example, a Pokémon met in the Distortion World or T.G. Eterna Bldg that is traded to Diamond or Pearl will display "Faraway place" as its met location, because in Diamond and Pearl the location either does no exist or is not treated as an individual location, respectively.

Platinum's Global Terminal and Rotom's Room are treated as the same locations as HeartGold and SoulSilver's. However, the Global Terminal is treated as a different location to Diamond and Pearl's GTS.

Kanto Victory Road is treated as a separate location to Sinnoh Victory Road, Black and White's Victory Road is treated as a separate location to Black 2 and White 2's Victory Road, Kalos Victory Road is treated as a separate location to Hoenn Victory Road, and the Kalos Pokémon League is treated as a separate location to the Hoenn Pokémon League.

The Pokémon World Tournament is treated as the same location as Cold Storage, and Pokémon obtained from the Treasure Hunter and Pokémon obtained from the PKMN Breeder are treated as being obtained in the same way.

Equivalent in other generations

In Pokémon Crystal, the Cianwood seer will respond "Whaaaat? I can't tell a thing!" if she is inquired about the origin of a Pokémon that has been in the Generation I games at any point or was obtained in a game other than Crystal.

In Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, Pokémon whose met location corresponds to index numbers above 087 will display "obtained in a trade" rather than the location name. Likewise, in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, Pokémon whose met location corresponds to index numbers below 088 or above 195 will display "Met in a trade" rather than the location name; however, in the trade center, unlike in Ruby and Sapphire, if the trade partner is the original Trainer of the Pokémon whose location does not exist in FireRed and LeafGreen, the game will display the met or hatched location as "Somewhere". In Pokémon Emerald, any Pokémon that was not transferred from Pokémon Colosseum or Pokémon XD will display the correct met location.
