Poké Mart

Ken Sugimori's original concept of a Poké Mart

A Pokémon Mart (Japanese: フレンドリィショップ Friendly Shop), commonly referred to as the Poké Mart, is a convenience store that sells supplies necessary for Pokémon training. A Poké Mart's stock varies with its location, such as Net Balls being available in Blackthorn City and Quick Balls being available in Lavender Town; however, as of Generation IV, only one clerk's varies from town-to-town, while the other remains consistent. Some sell more items than others. Poké Marts also buy many different items in exchange for money. Much of the merchandise sold at such stores is produced by either Silph Co. or the Devon Corporation.

Almost all cities, both major and minor, have Poké Marts, the exception being some which have local medicine shops. Notably, the town players start at in each main game does not have a Poké Mart. Poké Marts do not seem to be as ubiquitous in the anime as they are in the games.

When the Mystery Gift function on a game cartridge is activated, a deliveryman may appear in Poké Marts with gifts for the player. The deliveryman only appears when a Mystery Gift is received by the cartridge. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, another deliveryman will give the player a range of items, including Potions, Berries and battle items like the Macho Brace when the player's savings with their mother have reached certain points.

In Generation IV, there are two vendors in each Poké Mart. One will sell standard items, and the other will sell regional specialties. Unlike in previous games, rather than the items and their quantity varying by location, the merchandise's availability will increase with each Badge obtained. For example, if all Badges are under a player's possession, the same items will be found at each Poké Mart around Sinnoh, Johto and Kanto. In Generation V, the Poké Mart is no longer a separate store, but inside the Pokémon Center to the right of the entrance. In Generation VI, this remains, but the Mart is now at the back right of the Pokémon Center.

Generation I

Poké Mart in Pokémon Red and Blue

The player will come across their first Poké Mart in Viridian City, as they travel across the town. If the player enters the Poké Mart in Viridian City for the first time, the clerk will ask the player to deliver a package to Professor Oak in Pallet Town. The old man to the north of the city will not move until the package is delivered to Professor Oak, and Poké Balls cannot be bought in Viridian City until the player has returned from this errand.

On Route 1, a man who works at the Poké Mart in Viridian City will give out a free sample of Potion to Trainers who chat with him.

Generation II

The first Poké Mart is encountered in Cherrygrove City, where all basic items are available aside from Poké Balls, which they will not have in stock until after the player completes the errand to Mr. Pokémon's house, fights Silver, and returns to New Bark Town to report to Professor Elm.

Every Poké Mart in Generation II has a different appearance, each based on the style used in its hometown, making the most of the transition from the original Game Boy to the Game Boy Color.

Generation III

Poké Mart in Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, the Poké Mart is introduced by a salesman in Oldale Town, who directs the player to the local Poké Mart before giving the player a Potion as a gift. Like in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, there is no supply of Poké Balls, and they will not be in stock until after the player challenges their rival on Route 103 and visits Professor Birch for the second time.

In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, all situations are the same as in Generation I, with Oak's Parcel required for delivery before the Poké Mart in Viridian City will have Poké Balls available.

A new feature is introduced to Poké Marts in Generation III, the ability to answer surveys inside the Poké Mart. These surveys will allow the activation of Mystery Gift. To activate the Mystery Gift feature in the Generation III games, players need only to walk up to the clipboard found at any Poké Mart and enter a phase. The clerk behind the counter will then inform them that the Mystery Gift feature has been activated, and it will be available on the main menu from that point on.

Generation IV

Poké Mart in Pokémon Platinum

In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, the Poké Mart is introduced by the rival after taking their tour of Sandgem Town. The Poké Mart expands its supplies as the player wins Gym Badges. There are two cashiers in this generation; the one on the right sells items that can be found in any town, while the one on the left sells goods unique to that location, such as specialty Poké Balls or mail. Unlike in other regions, Poké Balls are available immediately in Sandgem Town.

Whenever the player receives an item or Pokémon from a Nintendo event, a deliveryman wearing a green uniform will appear next to the counter to give the player the item.

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, all Poké Marts are the same as in Generation II. The sales method, however, carries over from Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. In these games, if the player opted to have their mother save some money, an item will occasionally be delivered by a deliveryman in red.

Notably, the stall is mentioned as selling Rage Candy Bars (here spelled Rage Candybar), though they are never in stock in-game.

Shops in spin-off games

Kecleon Shop

Main article: Kecleon Shop
The Kecleon Shop in Treasure Town

In the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red and Blue Rescue Team, Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, there are no Poké Marts, as it takes place in an alternate world. However, two Kecleon run their own shop based in Pokémon Square, Treasure Town and local dungeons. These shops have the same basic purpose as a Poké Mart, selling common items, as well as selling Wonder Orbs and other items that can be held in the player's Treasure Bag. The Kecleon shop is run by two Kecleon brothers. The younger sells items like food and toss items and the older sells Wonder Orbs and TMs.

Kecleon Shops can also be found in dungeons. The shop is made up of a number of carpeted tiles on the floor in certain dungeons. These tiles have items on them. Invariably, a Kecleon will be standing on one of these tiles. When the player steps on a carpeted tile, the music changes and the player is greeted by the Kecleon. To buy an item, the player must pick it up and talk to the Kecleon to pay for them. To sell items, the player simply places them on empty shop tiles, and then receives the money from the Kecleon. Items available this way are sometimes very rare and almost never available from the Kecleon Shop in Pokémon Square or Treasure Town. If the player picks them up and leaves the carpeted area, Kecleon will warp to the player's side, and demand payment. If the player refuses to pay, or tries to pay with insufficient funds, the Kecleon will label the player as a thief and begin to attack.

Shops in Orre

In Pokémon Colosseum and XD, throughout Orre, many Poké Marts can be found. However, in Colosseum, none of these Poké Marts sell Poké Balls. The only place they are available in this game is the Outskirt Stand, where most variations of Poké Ball from Generation III are sold.

In Pokémon XD, Agate Village and Pyrite Town's Poké Marts sell Poké Balls and Great Balls, while Phenac City and Gateon Port's Poké Marts sell Poké Balls, Great Balls, and Ultra Balls.

In the anime

Ash, Dawn and Brock inside a Poké Mart

Poké Marts in the anime work the same as the ones in the games, where Ash and his friends buy items for their Pokémon or sometimes Seals through the Diamond & Pearl series. What is different from the games is that some stores contain phones with which to call people, most commonly Professor Oak. In Best Wishes series, although Poké Marts are now part of the Pokémon Center in the games, it has been shown that Poké Marts still exist externally in the anime.
