Solaceon Town (Japanese: ズイタウン Zui Town) is a town in central Sinnoh. It is located between Route 209 and Route 210, while also being the location of Solaceon Ruins. It is a fairly small town with a tiny village community.

Geography

Solaceon Town is a temperate town where people and Pokémon can relax. According to the town's locals, there was once nothing there but a road, but people and Pokémon gathered and a town formed. Solaceon Town is populated mostly by Ranchers and Cowgirls, and appears to be a farming community. As mentioned by a local, there were big Pokémon ranches around the town in the past. Most of the town residents live on the western side of town, near the main road. The eastern side of town is full of trees and ledges, resembling a maze. Solaceon Ruins is located on the far east side of town.

Close to the town are the Lost Tower, a tomb for deceased Pokémon, and the Hallowed Tower, home of Spiritomb.

Pokémon Day Care

The Day Care in Solaceon Town
Main article: Pokémon Day Care

Sinnoh's Pokémon Day Care is located here. This is where Trainers can drop off and pick up Pokémon from the old couple that lives there. Pokémon left at a daycare gain experience based on how many steps the player takes. It is free to put a Pokémon into the daycare and it costs PokémonDollar.png100 to take it out, plus an additional PokémonDollar.png100 per level increased while in the daycare. The Pokémon Day Care can keep up to two Pokémon at a time. Pokémon kept there will occasionally breed and have a Pokémon Egg, if certain conditions are right. The old man waits outside the house facing the road, informing the player if they have found an Egg. The old woman waits at the counter inside for Trainer to pick up and drop off their Pokémon. There will also be a man waiting at a table there, giving the player a Day Care Checker app for their Pokétch. There must be a Pokémon already in the daycare when entering the building for the man to be there.

Pokémon News Press

Pokémon News Press
Main article: Pokémon News Press

Solaceon Town is also home to the Pokémon News Press building. It is run by two people, who create and print the Sinnoh region's newspaper. The Pokémon News Press is tiny, containing only a TV and a desk, with a writing pad and a computer, but the newspaper is said to have many fans. One of the men asks the player each day to show him a different Pokémon the player has already seen, awarding Poké Balls if the request is granted. The Pokémon he wants to see is often simple to obtain because he only asks for Pokémon already listed in the player's Pokédex. A player who accomplishes this task within 24 hours will be rewarded with three of any type of Poké Ball, except for Master Balls, Cherish Balls, Safari Balls, and Park Balls. They are featured top story of the newspaper on the computer called the "Weekly Poké Ball Roundup". There are featured articles on new types of Poké Balls.

Solaceon Ruins

Main article: Solaceon Ruins

The Solaceon Ruins is a cave found in the eastern side of Solaceon Town. It is the set of ruins where the player can find the Unown in Sinnoh. The first room has no Pokémon in it and there is writing in the Unown alphabet that indicates which exits to take to get to the last room. 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 (Nugget, Rare Candy, Mind Plate, Odd Incense) and an inscription written in Unown script. In Pokémon Platinum the Rare Candy is replaced by HM05 (Defog).

Seal woman

In the eastern-most house of Solaceon Town, living near the Solaceon Ruins, is a woman who will give the player a Seal Case, an item which will hold Poké Ball Seals, which can be purchased later in the game in Sunyshore City. There is also a little boy in the house, who is the woman's son. He goes into the Solaceon Ruins every day to learn the alphabet, which he does by watching the Unown, originally found within the cave. If the boy is shown each of the different forms of Unown, he will give the player ten of the corresponding Seal, with the same shape of the Unown.

In the anime

Solaceon Contest Hall
Solaceon Town in the anime

Ash and his friends first arrived in Solaceon Town in Journey to the Unown!, where they visited the Solaceon Ruins.

A Pokémon Contest was held in Solaceon Town in Team Shocker!. Dawn, Kenny and Jessilina all entered the Contest hoping to get the prestigious Solaceon Ribbon. In the appeals round, both Kenny and Jessilina managed to impress the judges with their performances and advance to the second round. Dawn, however, failed to make the cut and was knocked out of the competition. In the Battle Round, Kenny and Jessilina faced off in the finals. By using Kenny's Prinplup's techniques to favor her Dustox, Jessilina was able to win the battle. With this victory, she earned her first Contest Ribbon.

Having seen the whole Contest on television, Zoey came to Solaceon to tell Dawn where she was going wrong. She asked Dawn for a battle based on the performance she gave in the Contest and then explained that, while Ambipom's Swift looked beautiful, it covered her completely, thus missing the point of the appeals round, which is to show off the Pokémon.

The town was revisited in If the Scarf Fits, Wear It!, where Ash and his friends met up with Angie again. Angie's parents own the town's Day Care Center and left it in Angie's hands when they had to go on a trip. Angie was eager to impress her parents and thus trained a Lickitung a bit much, teaching it how to use Rollout, which caused it to evolve into Lickilicky. She thought she would get in trouble for what happened, as it is against the Day Care rules to let a Pokémon evolve. However, when the Lickitung's Trainer appeared to take it back, he was actually happy about the evolution.
