Location
Sinnoh Sunyshore City Map.png
Location of Sunyshore City in Sinnoh.

Sunyshore City (Japanese: ナギサシティ Nagisa City) is a city in the region of Sinnoh, and the location of the region's final Pokémon Gym. Sunyshore City is known as a major port town and the gateway to Sinnoh's Pokémon League. It is situated on a narrow spit of land bordered by the sea and the mountains. To make up for the lack of space, the city built solar panels to use for power and roads. There are suspended roads throughout the city that collect solar energy to power the city.

Jasmine, Olivine City's Gym Leader, is seen in this city. She states that Sunyshore reminds her of home, because they both are by the sea, and both have a rather large lighthouse. After beating Volkner, Jasmine will give the player HM07 (Waterfall).

Until after Team Galactic is defeated and DialgaD, PalkiaP, or GiratinaPt is caught or defeated, the city experiences a massive blackout, and a man in Valor Lakefront prevents anyone from entering Route 222, the only way to Sunyshore from the rest of Sinnoh.

Places of interest

Sunyshore Market

Main article: Sunyshore Market
Sunyshore Market

The Sunyshore Market is a small building located in Sunyshore City. It is located in the center of Sunyshore City, just north of the Poké Mart, by the beach. The Sunyshore Market is one of the world's largest Seal centers. It is well known for its big selection of Seals from around the world. The building is always stacked with boxes of products. There are four desks and only three are occupied, though the player can only purchase items from the Seal shop by the man at the back of the room. The man at the stand will sell the player Poké Ball Seals. To buy these Seals, the player first must have obtained the Seal Case from the house just west of the Solaceon Ruins. The Seals he sells change every day. There is also a lady on the left to the entrance at the market giving away an Effort Ribbon to certain Pokémon, that have 510 Effort values.

Walkway

This city is also famous for its walkway, which is necessary for traveling around the city.

Vista Lighthouse

Vista Lighthouse
Main article: Vista Lighthouse

The Vista Lighthouse can be found in the far south-eastern corner of Sunyshore City. While not as spectacular as the lighthouse in Johto, consisting only of an elevator and an observation deck, it has a similarity in that it is the location in which the city's Gym Leader, Volkner, is found before appearing in the Pokémon Gym. The player can see the Sinnoh Pokémon League building if they look into the binoculars. Volkner, unlike Jasmine, however, is not caring for an ailing Pokémon, merely contemplating remaining a Gym Leader or going to the Pokémon League to challenge the Elite Four, since he has had no worthy challengers for a while.

Julia

There is also a lonely woman named Julia who will hand out seven Ribbons, one for each day of the week. The Ribbons she hands out differ according to her mood, which changes every day. The Ribbons she hands out are as follows:

Day Ribbon Description
Monday Alert Ribbon.png Alert Ribbon A Ribbon for recalling an invigorating event that created life energy.
Tuesday Shock Ribbon.png Shock Ribbon A Ribbon for recalling a thrilling event that made life more exciting.
Wednesday Downcast Ribbon.png Downcast Ribbon A Ribbon for recalling feelings of sadness that added spice to life.
Thursday Careless Ribbon.png Careless Ribbon A Ribbon for recalling a careless error that helped steer life decisions.
Friday Relax Ribbon.png Relax Ribbon A Ribbon for recalling a refreshing event that added sparkle to life.
Saturday Snooze Ribbon.png Snooze Ribbon A Ribbon for recalling a deep slumber that made life soothing.
Sunday Smile Ribbon.png Smile Ribbon A Ribbon for recalling that smiles enrich the quality of life.

Pokétch developer

In the house only reachable by Rock Climb, a lone scientist has been given the okay by The Pokétch Company to develop original Pokétch applications. If he is shown a Pokémon with one of three Natures, he will give away one of three different applications.

Pokémon Rock

Pokémon Rock is a giant rock formation found on the east side of the city. Pokémon Rock is one of the city's famous landmarks, famous for its strange shape that resembles a Munchlax standing in the bay, with the water covering its feet.

Sunyshore Gym

Main article: Sunyshore Gym

The Sunyshore Gym is the official Gym of Sunyshore City. It is based on Electric-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Volkner. Trainers who defeat him receive the Beacon Badge. The Sunyshore Gym is a three room Gym where the main floor is made up of gigantic gears and clockwork suspending platforms operated by buttons. To get through, Trainers need to rotate the platforms in a correct order to create a path. The Gym has exposed dynamos that use up a large amount of electrical power, prompting the town to renovate the pathways into solar energy collectors. For defeating Volkner, Trainers receive the Beacon Badge, TM57 (Charge Beam), and the ability to use Waterfall outside of battle.

Trivia

  • Sunyshore's Japanese town motto is たいようが てらす まち "The town where the sun shines".
  • Sunyshore is Cyrus's hometown.
  • Sunyshore is a major port town yet it has no ferries unlike Snowpoint and Canalave.
  • The layout of the city is very similar to Olivine City with exits to the north and west of the city, two houses in the northeastern corner, Gym in the northwestern corner and a lighthouse in the southeastern corner.
    • This city is also similar to Vermilion City in Kanto. Both's Gym Leaders use Electric-type Pokémon, and both are port cities.
  • As Jasmine leaves the player with HM07, she walks back to the shore saying "...Um... I... I don't know how I should say this, but good luck." This is the same phrase she gives players that defeat her in Olivine Gym.
