Ten'i Village
Region Sinnoh
Debut Giratina and the Sky Warrior

(Japanese: テンイむら Ten'i Village) is an anime-exclusive location in the Sinnoh region. It was featured in the second Diamond & Pearl series movie, Giratina and the Sky Warrior. The village lies beside a lake, near the base of a glacier. The temple of the Legendary Regigigas is also located nearby.

During the events of the movie, the glacier became unstable after Zero smashed the ice pillars in the Reverse World. As a result, the glacier began to slide down towards the village. Dawn called out her Buneary and Swinub to use their Ice-type attacks to prevent the glacier from sliding any further. With the help of the local Pokémon, they managed to freeze the lake, but it wasn't enough to stop the glacier from moving. Eventually, Regigigas and several Mamoswine were able to stop the glacier and thus the village was saved from the impending disaster.

The village made a brief appearance in Arceus and the Jewel of Life, in which it was revealed that Sheena and Kevin went there to investigate the recent catastrophe after observing disruptions in the Time-Space Axis.

Trivia

  • The name of the village was never revealed in the movie. However, the movie Regigigas distributed in Japanese events revealed its OT to be テンイむら (Ten'i Village), giving the village its name.

Name origin

Depending on the kanji, Ten'i can mean moving (転移), transposition (転位), imperial throne (天位), imperial authority (天威), divine will / providence (天意), or natural (天為).
