The Solaceon Ruins (Japanese: ズイのいせき Zui Ruins) is the set of ruins where the player can find the Unown in Sinnoh. It is found east of Solaceon Town. If the player captures an Unown, then shows it to a boy in the town, the Seal corresponding to its letter will become available.

Geography

Solaceon Ruins exterior in Diamond and Pearl

This map is the same in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum versions.

The first room has a plaque/inscription in the Unown alphabet that indicates which exits to take to get to the last room. It reads:

Unown Text
TOPNone.pngRIGHT Top right
LOWERNone.pngLEFT Lower left
TOPNone.pngRIGHT Top right
TOPNone.pngLEFT Top left
TOPNone.pngLEFT Top left
LOWERNone.pngLEFT Lower left

The second room has only Unown of the "F" variety, the third has "R" and so on, spelling out the word "friend". The dead-end rooms (reached by not following the Unown alphabet instructions) house the other twenty varieties of Unown. The last room holds four items and an inscription written in Unown script. In Pokémon Platinum one of the items is HM05 (Defog). The writing reads as follows:

Unown Text
FRIENDSHIP Friendship
ALLNone.pngLIVES All lives
TOUCHNone.pngOTHER touch other
LIVESNone.pngTONone.pngCREATE lives to create
SOMETHING something
ANEWNone.pngANDNone.pngALIVE anew and alive

The Japanese version of this writing is the same featured in Top-Down Training! and in Journey to the Unown!.

The room above the rest of the ruins, only accessible after the Ruin Maniac has finished digging the Maniac Tunnel through from Route 214 (which occurs after obtaining one of each alphabetic Unown), has both "!" and "?" varieties. The inscription in there reads:

Unown Text

In the anime

Solaceon Ruins in the anime

The Solaceon Ruins were featured in Journey to the Unown!. Here, they appeared as an actual building rather than a cave, and were a temple dedicated to Dialga and Palkia. Inside, the Unown guarded a cube that was stolen by Saturn of Team Galactic. After he exposed the it to the energy from the meteorites in Veilstone City, it was revealed that the cube was actually the Spear Key, which opens the gateway to Spear Pillar. After he stole the cube, he ordered his Bronzor to use Confuse Ray on all the Unown, causing them to attack Team Rocket and Ash and his friends.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

The ruins are featured in Knowledge of the Unown I and Knowledge of the Unown II and are the main setting of the latter one. Diamond, Pearl and Platinum encountered two Unown, later named by Platinum as Mr Hasty and Mr Relaxed, who led them into the ruins. The main trio helped the Unown to free their friends who had been trapped before the events of these rounds.
