The Pokéathlon Dome (Japanese: ポケスロンドーム Pokéthlon Dome) is a location in Johto, west of the National Park. It is the place where Pokéathlon competitions are held.

Several things related to the Pokéathlon are available here, both inside and outside of the building.

Outside

Outside of the building, many Trainers can be seen with their Pokémon, practicing for the Pokéathlon's various competitions. A woman on the west side of the area will give away an Apriblender to those who have an Apricorn Box, and afterwards she will sell Aprijuice.

Aprijuice Stand

The Aprijuice Stand (Japanese: ボンドリンクショップ Bon Drink Shop) sells a variety of different pre-made Aprijuice which change on a daily basis. By default there are five different drinks that are sold from the three machines lined up at the Aprijuice Shop each reflecting one Pokéathlon Performance stat. When the player plays the Pokéathlon over wireless play, then the default drinks will be replaced with the drinks of the opposing player. The price of the drinks are determined on how famous the Trainers selling them are.

Basement

In the basement, there are four rooms where information about the player's Pokémon can be seen, most of which can only be accessed by doing certain achievements in the Pokéathlon.

Solidarity Room

In this room, the player can see his or her point records in every course, and which Pokémon team was used to obtain each record.

Having a score of at least 420 in any course will display a Collective trophy (in the form of a crown) next to that course's medal. A score of 450 or higher will display two Collective trophies.

Trust Room

Unlocked by earning all five course medals (it doesn't have to be with the same team).

In this room, the player can see all the medals obtained for each individual Pokémon species. A species who has all five medals is considered to be a Medalist Pokémon.

A Trust trophy is obtained by getting a certain number of Pokémon species to Medalist status. The player gets such a trophy upon reaching 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, 50, 75, 100, 150, and 200 different Medalist Pokémon, for a total of ten trophies.

Other displayables in this room will be shown by completing the following tasks:

  • Dash 5,000 times (golden Running Shoes)
  • Join the Pokéathlon 50 times (golden track suit)
  • Switch 200 times (red flag)

Potential Room

Unlocked by having at least one Medalist Pokémon.

In this room, the player can see a top five list of scores in each event (including "default" ones not set by the player), and the Pokémon used to obtain the event. Any default ones are seen as achieved by the three Johto starters. Scores obtained while playing in Link mode can also be viewed here, though they are kept separately from the single-player scores and cannot be used to unlock the Friendship room, the Trainer Star, or Potential trophies. The player can also see how many times he or she has played each event in single-player or link mode.

The table below gives viewers the default first place records one needs to beat, as well as the mastery record that unlocks a Potential trophy for that event. In addition, getting the first place record on every event here will unlock a star on the Trainer Card. Note that the first place records must be beaten, not merely tied, in contrast to the mastery records.

Event 1st Record Mastery Record
Hurdle Dash 100.0 net seconds 80.0 net seconds
Pennant Capture 35 flags 50 flags
Circle Push 40 points 60 points
Block Smash 80 pieces 130 pieces
Disc Catch 40 points 70 points
Lamp Jump 350 points 500 points
Relay Run 12 laps 16 laps
Ring Drop 70 points 100 points
Snow Throw 30 hits 55 hits
Goal Roll 3 points 9 points

Other displayables in this room will be shown by completing the following tasks:

  • Win first on the Pokéathlon 100 times (golden Pokégear)
  • Win first place on every Pokéathlon event 50 times (model Poké Ball with the engraving, "Stay on Top")

Friendship Room

Unlocked by beating all the preset first records seen in the Potential Room.

This room simply has a golden statue of the player, as well as statues of the last Pokémon team the player won the Pokéathlon with.

If the player checks their statue, they'll see their global Pokéathlon Score, as well as their global Pokéathlon Trophy count.

The global Pokéathlon score is calculated as the sum of the player's best final score in each of the five courses, the player's highest score for each of the ten individual events (after conversion to Athlete Points), and the total number of medals displayed in the box in the Trust room (so each Medalist species will add five to this total).

As the global Pokéathlon score increases past certain milestones, the player is awarded Friendship trophies. The tenth Friendship trophy is obtained at 4,500 points.

The Pokéathlon Dome in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

The Pokéathlon Dome was featured in the HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter of the Pokémon Adventures manga. Gold took part in all the Courses, and won in all of them, even surpassing the Elite Four in the Power Course. It was afterwards revealed that Gold was supposed to meet up with Lance at the Pokéathlon Dome in order to receive information about Arceus. Unfortunately, Lance was ambushed and defeated by Petrel en route, and only Lance's Dragonite made it to the Dome, where it started rampaging due to lacking its Trainer to give it orders. It was eventually stopped by Gold's Togebo.

Later on, Lance revealed that he had chosen the Pokéathlon Dome as the meeting place in order to show Arceus how hard humans and Pokémon can work together.


Trivia

  • The in-game map gives the impression that the Pokéathlon Dome is completely inland, despite the fact that both the overworld and the official map of Johto released for HeartGold and SoulSilver show that it is surrounded by water on 3 sides.
