Location
Hoenn Pacifidlog Town Map.png
Location of Pacifidlog Town in Hoenn.

Pacifidlog Town (Japanese: キナギタウン Kinagi Town) is a town located in the seas south of the mainland of the Hoenn region.

Pacifidlog Town is a small town built on wooden rafts and logs that float on top of a Corsola colony. The people living in Pacifidlog Town all fish and dive as part of their lifestyle. The ancestors of the people in Pacifidlog Town were said to have been born on boats, and lived and died aboard them. According to legend, they lived that way because they were searching for something.

There is also a legend in Pacifidlog Town of a flying Dragon Pokémon that never needs to rest. This could refer to Rayquaza. There is also a legend of three sealed-away Pokémon that represent the powers of Ice, Rock, and Steel, which refers to the Legendary golems: Regice, Regirock, and Registeel.

The town is located east of Slateport and the Sealed Chamber, and west of the Sky Pillar.

Places of interest

Pacifidlog Town in Ruby and Sapphire

Mirage Island man

In Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald an old man can be found living on the east side of Pacifidlog Town. He is seen looking out for Mirage Island and will shout out in excitement on days that it appears. Every day, the game generates a random number between 0 and 65535. If this number matches the personality value of any of the Pokémon in the player's party, Mirage Island will be accessible that day.

In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire the old man instead tells the player about Mirage spots.

Pokémon Fan Club Chairman's sibling

The Pokémon Fan Club Chairman's younger brother lives in a house on the west side of the town. He will give out one of two possible TMs every seven days depending on the friendship of the player's Pokémon. If the first Pokémon in the party's friendship is high, he will give the player TM27 (Return); if it is low, he will give the player TM21 (Frustration). If the Pokémon's friendship is neutral, he will not give any TM, but the player may still receive a TM by showing him a different Pokémon.

In-game trade

Located south of the Pokémon Center, there is a woman who will trade a Corsola for a Bellossom in Ruby, Sapphire, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire. In Emerald, a man will trade a Horsea for a Bagon.

Demographics

Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire

Pacifidlog Town's population in the games is only 20, a very low number by Hoenn standards. This is because of its highly remote location.

In the anime

Pacifidlog Town in the anime

In the anime, Pacifidlog Town was shown to be a small archipelago instead of a town built on wooden rafts. Like many other towns in the Hoenn region, it is home to a Contest Hall.

Ash and his friends arrived in Pacifidlog Town in Mean With Envy, where they met up with Pokémon Coordinators Erica and Joshua. Erica, who was expecting to win the Pacifidlog Contest together with her boyfriend Joshua, engaged in a rivalry with May after she saw her chatting with him. Later on, the three young Coordinators, as well as a disguised Jessie, entered the Pacifidlog Convention in hopes of getting the coveted Pacifidlog Ribbon.

Pacifidlog Town Contest Hall

In the Appeals Round, Jessie had Meowth using Fury Swipes to make a sculpture of Giovanni and himself out of a giant block of ice, impressing the crowd. Joshua showcased his Houndoom's talents with a combination of Shadow Ball and Swift, whereas Erica displayed her Jynx's psychic powers by combining Blizzard and Psychic. May also made use of Blizzard, having Skitty using the move to freeze the Razor Leaf she got from Assist before DoubleSlapping the leaves to shower the stage in sparkling crystal. With that, they all were able to advance to the Contest Battles, which took place in the following episode.

The first match of the second round put Jessie against Erica. The battle ended rather quickly as Jessie was disqualified for cheating, giving Erica a free pass to the Contest finals. The battle between May and Joshua, on the other hand, was a hard fought one. It ended with an explosion caused by the clash of May's Skitty's Blizzard and Joshua's Houndoom's Flamethrower. Having won this battle, May advanced to the final round, where she faced Erica. She had a little trouble dealing with Jynx's Psychic attack, but got the win after Skitty's Assist became Fire Spin and knocked Jynx out. This victory gave May her fifth Contest Ribbon, allowing her to enter the Hoenn Grand Festival.

Trivia

  • Pacifidlog's Japanese motto is あさひが みずべを てらす まち "The town where the morning sun shines upon the waterfront".
  • In the Generation III games, Bicycles could not be ridden in Pacifidlog Town.
    • It was also the only town in the Pokémon world where it was impossible to run.
  • There is a possibility that Pacifidlog's concept was inspired by the Pokédex entry for Corsola in Pokémon Silver, which states, "In a south sea nation, the people live in communities that are built on groups of these Pokémon."
  • Despite the fact that Pacifidlog Town is said to have been built on a colony of Corsola, Corsola cannot be found or caught in this area by any means.
  • In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Sapphire, when played in English, the old man in the southwestern house says "One does not simply walk into a Mirage spot." This is a reference to the line "One does not simply walk into Mordor." from the film The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.
