Places of interest

Trainers' School

Main article: Pokémon academy

A Pokémon academy is a school where students and Trainers can learn more about Pokémon. Most beginning Trainers visit at least one of them, and common Trainers who study extensively at these locations are Lasses, School Kids, and Scientists. The blackboard at the back of the school details the five non-volatile status conditions. Cheren visits here to improve his knowledge while waiting for the Gym to open.

Fennel and Amanita's house

Fennel and Amanita live together in the house in the northern entrance of the easternmost building in Striaton City. They share a room on the top floor, which cannot be accessed until defeating the Striaton Gym. Fennel gives the player HM01 (Cut) as a reward for defeating the Gym Leader. Amanita introduces herself as the creator of the Unova Pokémon Storage System, then explains the Battle Box. After speaking with her, the "Someone's PC" becomes "Amanita's PC".

After saving the Munna from the Team Plasma Grunts, Fennel gives the player the C-Gear and Amanita will give you the Pal Pad. Amanita will then explain the purpose of the Pal Pad in addition to the Battle Box.

In Black 2 and White 2, due to Fennel and Amanita moving to Castelia City, they are absent. Instead, a woman, a man, a Herdier, and an Up-Grade are found. The man names all of the Pokémon Storage System admins, and the woman states that the C-Gear's current version is version 3.0.

Garden

On the west side of Striaton City, there is a hedge garden surrounded by water. It contains hedge walls, and Pikachu and Pidove-shaped hedges. In the center of the garden is a tall water fountain. In Black 2 and White 2 during the Summer, tame Stunfisk appear in the garden at night.

Striaton Gym

Main article: Striaton Gym

The Striaton Gym is the official Gym of Striaton City. It is based on Fire-type, Water-type, and Grass-type Pokémon. The Gym Leaders are Chili, Cress, and Cilan. The Striaton City Gym is a Gym consisting of a puzzle by stepping on an element pad that defeats the element showcased on a curtain. For defeating one Gym Leader, Trainers receive the Trio Badge, TM83 (Work Up), and the ability to use Cut outside of battle.

Striaton City is host to the first Gym the player can challenge. Uniquely, this Gym has three brothers for Gym Leaders, and the Gym Leader faced by the player is determined by the starter the player chooses. If the player chooses Snivy, the player will face Chili and his Pansear. If the player chooses Tepig, the player will face Cress and his Panpour. If the player chooses Oshawott, the player will face Cilan and his Pansage.

The Gym is styled after a café; each of the Leaders serve as waiters. The Gym made its anime appearance in Triple Leaders, Team Threats!.

Striaton Restaurant

Making its appearance in Black 2 and White 2, the Striaton Restaurant is the former Gym of Striaton City. The player can watch a Pansage, Pansear, or Panpour show, with the prize being a Big Mushroom if the correct Pokémon is chosen. It is a spiritual successor to the Patrat show found at Village Bridge in Black and White. Every day, the player can team up with one of the three brothers and battle the other two in a Multi Battle. They all have three Pokémon each and use different Pokémon than the ones they did in Pokémon Black and White.

Demographics

46 people reside in Striaton City. This ranks Striaton City as one of the biggest cities in Unova.

Ash defeated Chili and Cilan, but lost to Cress; and as such Ash won his first Badge. In Dreams by the Yard Full!, Team Rocket's investigation in the Dreamyard caused Dream Mist to fall over Striaton City, but they were stopped by Ash, Iris, Cilan and Fennel. In the end Cilan decided to travel with Ash and Iris.

Trivia

  • Striaton's Japanese motto is サンヨウとは 3つ並ぶ 星のこと "Sanyou refers to three aligned stars".
  • The fact that the map description references a snowy climate and that the name of the city is a corruption of "striation" (scratches left in rock from glacial friction) is likely a reference to Long Island, which was formed by glacial deposits during the ice age. Moreover, the position of Long Island relative to Manhattan is nearly identical to the position of the east peninsula of Unova relative to the central region, which was based on Manhattan.
  • In Black 2 and White 2, tame Stunfisk appear in the garden at night in the summer. This could be a reference to the anime where Cilan owns a Stunfisk.

Name origin

Japanese サンヨウシティ Sanyou City From 三曜 (さんよう) san'yō, meaning "three luminaries", where a luminary here refers to the sun, the moon, or a star. Also a variation on the mon 三ツ星 mitsuboshi, meaning "three stars", particularly Orion's Belt.
English Striaton City Corruption of striation, a series of parallel grooves in cloud formation that reveals the presence of rotation. Also contains "tri" (three). May also be from stratus clouds.
French Ogoesse The French name for pellet, black-colored roundel (tourteau).
German Orion City A reference to Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka, the three luminous stars that form Orion's Belt.
Italian Levantopoli From Levante, Italian word for Viento de Levante.
Spanish Ciudad Gres Ciudad Striaton From gres, stoneware. Also rhymes with tres (three).
Korean 성신시티 Seongsin City From 성신 (星辰) seongsin, meaning "star", or possibly "morning star"; Venus, otherwise known the "Morning Star" and the "Goddess of Love", is known as either geum-seong and yeo-sin. 성신 (聖神) seongsin may also be in reference to "The Holy Spirit" (in the Christian/religious sense).
