Secret Base

Brendan and multiple Trainers and Pokémon in a Secret Base.

A Secret Base (Japanese: ひみつきち Secret Base) is a special area that the player can create in Hoenn- and Sinnoh-based games to decorate with various accessories, furniture, and Pokémon dolls. While the name is retained as the same between Hoenn and Sinnoh, the only real similarity between the two is in the manner in which they are decorated.

In the games

Generation III

Brendan's Secret Base

Most routes in the Hoenn region feature several areas which can be converted into a Secret Base, with small indents in walls being able to be carved out into a cave, tall trees being able to drop down vines, and clumps of grass being able to be moved. These areas become accessible to this conversion only if the Trainer has a Pokémon that can use Secret Power, available via TM43.

Trainers can decorate their Secret Base in any way they please, being able to put up to 16 decorations into the area. Trainers can run while inside of a Secret Base, but cannot ride a bike. A boy in Mossdeep City reminds players of where their own Secret Base is.

If a player mixes records with other Ruby, Sapphire, or Emerald game cartridges, Secret Bases will copy over between them (even those from other players who have previously mixed records). Inside of Secret Bases that do not belong to the player, an NPC can be found to represent the person that took that Secret Base as their own. After the Elite Four have been defeated, the player can battle the NPC, who will have the party of the person who owns that Secret Base as of the time of record mixing. These battles award money, experience, and all other things that normal battles with NPCs do, but they can only occur once per day, with the time resetting at midnight, and items stolen from the NPC's Pokémon using Thief are not kept afterwards. Should the NPC win, the player will not "black out" and return to the last visited Pokémon Center, nor lose any money.

Generation IV

A Secret Base in the Underground

Unlike in Generation III, the Secret Bases in Generation IV are found in the Underground, and instead of NPCs being used to represent other players, the other players can be encountered face-to-face using DS Wireless Communication. In addition, all Secret Bases in Generation IV are all the same shape and size, unlike Generation III bases which can vary in size and shape.

Secret Bases are dug by using a Digger Drill while facing a wall. Initially, there are many Big Boulders in the base. As more flags are obtained, boulders can be removed. Initially, only 10 goods can be placed in a Secret Base, but as the flag is upgraded, the limit increases to 15.

Players cannot battle each other for money underground. However, if a player enters another's Secret Base while they are not decorating (as that requires the entrance be closed), they can attempt to steal their flag and take it to their own Secret Base for rewards, from decorations to a Trainer Card star.

Generation VI

A Secret Base in Generation VI

Secret Bases are set to return in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire as Super Secret Bases. All new features will be included, such as the ability to share bases online via QR codes and a flag-collection game (similar to that of the Underground), and creation of a custom Pokémon Gym. It will also be possible to, by visiting another player's Secret Base, have battles with the members, as well as bringing the owners to the player's in-game Secret Base, turning them into Secret Pals. These that may either be battled or give the player help. The service provided will vary from pal to pal.

Aarune is an expert on Super Secret Bases and teaches the player about them.

In the anime

Keanu's Secret Base

Secret Bases first appeared in A Three Team Scheme. While staying in Dewford Town, Ash and his friends stumbled across Keanu's Secret Base. Later in the episode, Team Rocket also found the Secret Base and stole Keanu's Pokémon, which Ash and his friends helped him to get back.

Trivia

  • In the Underground it is possible for a mining spot to spawn on the same spot as the player's Secret Base.
