Pokémon world locations

Pinwheel Forest (Japanese: ヤグルマの森 Yaguruma Forest) is a forest in Unova which lies between Nacrene City and Castelia City, at the east end of the Skyarrow Bridge.

In Pokémon Black and White, Rumination Field (Japanese: 思索の原 Rumination Field), home of the Legendary Pokémon Virizion, is located deep in the forest. However, in order to access this area, the player must have first encountered Cobalion, who resides in Mistralton Cave.

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, Virizion no longer resides here, instead taking residence on Route 11. The forest can only be visited after the player defeats the Elite Four. Gorm of the Seven Sages can be found here while investigating with Cheren.

Due to the presence of a Moss Rock, Eevee can evolve into Leafeon here.

Geography

There is an outer portion to the east which is accessible as soon as the player gains access to Nacrene City, and an inner portion to the west which is accessible only after winning at the Nacrene Gym. After the player battles Cobalion, the east portion of the forest can be explored. There is an entrance to the deep area of the forest in the east where the Legendary Pokémon Virizion resides.

Like in the Eterna Forest, it has a moss-covered rock. Leveling up Eevee in this forest will allow it to evolve into Leafeon.

Trainer Tips

Trainer Tips
A forest is likely to contain many well-hidden items! They may be hard to find, so look carefully!

In the anime

Pinwheel Forest in the anime
The outskirts

Pinwheel Forest is shown to be a huge forest in the anime. With mountains and fields on the outskirts, and a variety of foliage and moss. Inside the forest, there are mossy trees, one where a bunch of Galvantula live. In the middle of the forest is a giant tree where the whole forest can be seen from. It is also shown to have a waterfall and caves where Patrat live. A Pokémon Center is shown inside the forest.

The outskirts appeared in Scraggy-Hatched to be Wild! where Ash's Egg hatched into a Scraggy. He became a bully and picked on Ash's Pokémon. Later he was badly hurt by a Galvantula, but recovered after taking some medicine Iris had made. The next day he challenged the Galvantula again but needed saving from Ash and his friends after the entire colony of Galvantula joined in the fight. Then Scraggy had a battle with Axew which ended in a draw.

Ash and his friends reached Pinwheel Forest in Sewaddle and Burgh in Pinwheel Forest! where they met the Castelia Gym Leader, Burgh. Ash encountered a Sewaddle which battled Pikachu before disappearing. He appeared again later where he stayed with the group. He then helped to defeat two Woobat with Pikachu. The next day, Sewaddle got stuck to a Deerling and fell into a river but was saved by Burgh's Leavanny. Later, Ash visited a nearby Pokémon Center where he sent one of his Pokémon to Professor Juniper to make room for Sewaddle.

Just outside of Pinwheel Forest, a path leads to a huge Poké Mart where loads of goods are sold such as gems and jewelry. Pokémon Connoisseurs, including Burgundy, also set up booths in the area where they judge the compatibility that a Pokémon and their Trainer have. Ash, Iris and Cilan visited it in A Connoisseur's Revenge!.

Next, a small town is located with trees and rocky hills surrounding the place and a small stream. There is a small battleground where, in Dancing With the Ducklett Trio!, Axew battled Ash's Scraggy. In the town, there is also a Pokémon Center. A bunch of Ducklett lived there and stole people's possessions. Pikachu battled a Sandile they had met before here and Sandile evolved into a Krokorok. After that, the group finally reached the Skyarrow Bridge.

Name origin

Its Japanese name comes from 矢車 yaguruma, "arrow wheel", a pair of ornamental wheels with a spherical spinning vane placed on top of a pole on which carp streamers are raised on. It is also a mon based on the yaguruma. The 矢 ya (arrow) in its Japanese name also relates to the アロー (arrow) in スカイアローブリッジ (Skyarrow Bridge). The name can also be taken from 矢車菊 yaguruma-kiku (cornflower) or 矢車草 yaguruma-sou (Rodgersia podophylla).
