The Hall of Origin (Japanese: はじまりのま Hall of Origin) is where the legendary Pokémon Arceus resides.

It is an event-only area, located above the Spear Pillar. It is accessible only once the player has the Azure Flute and returns to the Spear Pillar after defeating the Elite Four, as the event will not be possible until after Team Galactic has been defeated and Dialga, Palkia, or Giratina has been encountered.

Event description

When the player returns to the Spear Pillar with the Azure Flute, the player will be asked to play it. If the player chooses to do so, playing the flute will cause a staircase to appear, which leads out of sight, as if never-ending. Following the staircase up leads to a glass-like platform, high above the Spear Pillar, where Arceus awaits the player's challenge. Stepping onto the platform will automatically initiate the battle.

In terms of game mechanics, when the player accesses the Hall of Origin by blowing into the Azure Flute, he/she is actually no longer on the Spear Pillar, but rather in a completely separate location, as evidenced by the screen fadeout transition, change in camera angle*, and the indicated name of the location. That is, the game does not place stair tiles onto the Spear Pillar upon blowing the Azure Flute, but rather warps the player to a location containing the stairs whose surrounding area looks identical to the Spear Pillar. This dispels a rumor that cheating to reach the Hall of Origin would trap the player on Arceus's glass platform without the stairs to lead back down.

Like the Spear Pillar, the Hall of Origin is technically outside of the mountain, so the Escape Rope cannot be used to teleport the player back to the entrance of Mt. Coronet. However, also like the Spear Pillar, it is within range of Mt. Coronet's strong magnetic field, and therefore Magneton and Nosepass will both evolve here if leveled up.

  • The Hall of Origin background music is a remix of the music from the title screen of Diamond and Pearl.
    • When the Azure Flute is used to open up The Hall of Origin, the music used is a remix of the beginning of the title screen music.
  • Once Arceus is captured, the Azure Flute will no longer open the staircase to the Hall of Origin. However, if Arceus was defeated, the Azure Flute will be able to open the Hall of Origin so the player can attempt to battle it again.
    • If Arceus is captured, upon using the Azure Flute at the Spear Pillar, it will say "The Azure Flute echoed hollowly..."
  • If a fateful encounter Arceus is already used for the Sinjoh Ruins event, another Arceus caught in the Hall of Origin may be used to go back to Sinjoh Ruins and choose one of Dialga, Palkia or Giratina. However, the legendary chosen with the fateful encounter Arceus cannot be chosen again.
  • As the Azure Flute has never been released anywhere, it is impossible to go to the Hall of Origin without cheating.
