Floaroma Town (Japanese: ソノオタウン Sonoo Town) is a town in the region of Sinnoh, known for its honey and vividly scented flowers that grow everywhere. It is the first area where Berries from non-player characters are available in Generation IV. Notable landmarks include the Pick a Peck of Colors Flower Shop in the middle of town, the Floaroma Meadow found to the north, and an anime-exclusive Contest Hall. A girl with a Clefairy hands out TM88 (Pluck) here.

In Pokémon Platinum, Floaroma Town has wooden arches at its entrances, among other things.

In Pokémon Platinum, a wooden gate can be seen.

History and tradition

According to the townspeople, Floaroma Town was once a barren and desolate hill. People started planting flowers around it to cheer up the place, but nothing would grow. Then, someone expressed thanks for a blessing of nature, and the whole hill burst into bloom. It is theorized that Shaymin was the cause of the sudden burst of flowers, given it being the Gratitude Pokémon, and its ability to "instantly transform ruined land into a lush field of flowers," according to its Pokédex entry.

The Pick a Peck of Colors Flower Shop offers players the game's first Berries, equipment needed for raising Berries, and a number of Accessories in exchange for Berries.

Floaroma Meadow

Main article: Floaroma Meadow

The Floaroma Meadow is an area accessed through the flowers in the northeast section of Floaroma Town proper, but still part of the town according to the Town Map. The first time the player visits Floaroma Town, the entrance to the meadow is blocked by two Team Galactic grunts. The player must defeat them to gain access to a honey tree, a man who sells honey, and the key to Valley Windworks.

A path in Floaroma Town leading to the meadow begins with a sign which reads:

Floaroma Meadow Ahead
Honey Available

Contest Hall

Found only in the anime, the Floaroma Contest Hall was featured in Getting the Pre-Contest Titters! and Settling a Not-So-Old Score!. In it, Dawn participated in a Contest with her Piplup. Jessie participated in the Contest but was defeated in the first battle round by Dawn. Kenny, a childhood friend and rival of Dawn, also debuted and participated in the Contest with his Prinplup. Dawn finally won her first Ribbon in this Contest, by narrowly defeating Kenny in the final battle round.

Demographics

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl

In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, the population of Floaroma Town is 29, a rather high number for such a small town. Apparently this is caused by the alluring aroma of the typical flowers and honey of the town. The majority of the townspeople are female.

Pokémon Platinum

In Pokémon Platinum, the population of Floaroma Town is now 30.

In the anime

Floaroma Town in the anime
Floaroma Town Contest Hall

Ash and his friends first arrived in Floaroma Town in Oh Do You Know The Poffin Plan!, where they attended a Poffin cooking class given by Forsythia. Brock was a natural at making good Poffins, whereas Dawn took a little to get the perfect recipe for her Pokémon. Ash, however, was unsuccessful and failed to produce high-quality Poffins.

In the anime, Floaroma Town is home to a Contest Hall. In Getting the Pre-Contest Titters!, Pokémon Coordinators Dawn, Kenny and Jessilina all entered the Floaroma Contest in order to take the coveted Floaroma Ribbon home. By showing the best of their Pokémon, the three of them were able to pass the Appeals Round and, in Settling a Not-So-Old Score!, they competed against each other in the Battle Round. In the end, Dawn emerged victorious, obtaining her first Contest Ribbon.

The town appeared again in Unlocking the Red Chain of Events!, where Forsythia was seen watering flowers together with her Roserade and Lotad.

Legend says Floaroma was once barren and without any kind of vegetation. One day, a beautiful woman went atop the hill and expressed gratitude, which resulted in flowers growing exponentially.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Diamond, Pearl and Platinum all go to Floaroma Town in Honey For Combee. When Diamond accidentally knocks down a girl's tree, a swarm of Combee attack the trio.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

Hareta and Mitsumi arrive in Floaroma Town in The Mystery Boy, Jun!!. Hareta meets his rival and friend, Jun, there. This is where Hareta catches Shinx after Jun tells him that he needs more Pokémon.

Trivia

  • Floaroma's Japanese town motto is あざやかに はなかおる まち "The town that smells vividly of flowers".
  • In the 2009 Pokémon annual, Floaroma Town is incorrectly spelled as "Floarama".
  • In Oh, Do You Know The Poffin Plan?, a story was told about a woman who made all of the flowers, probably because they would otherwise need to show Shaymin, which was not revealed at that time. The NPCs in-game simply say it was a Pokémon.
  • There is a tiny section of Floaroma Town that sits between the northern entrance to the Floaroma Meadow and the river by Fuego Ironworks. There is no grass or items to be found though.
