The Trick House (Japanese: カラクリやしき Trick House) is located on Route 110 in Hoenn. It is owned by the Trick Master, who poses puzzling challenges to travelers. Those who wish to play his game must find their way through a maze-like puzzle at the back of his house. If successful, they will be rewarded.

Description

The puzzles for Trick House are divided into three parts. First, the Trick Master is hiding somewhere in the first room of the house. The first few times the player enters the house, a small twinkle indicates the Trick Master's hiding place right away, but in later challenges the player must find him without any help.

Once the Trick Master is found, the player may enter the larger rear room through a passageway hidden behind the scroll on the wall. The rooms consist of some sort of maze with a gimmick to each of them, and each room also has mail and Trainers. The player must navigate through the maze to a second scroll, where they will obtain a secret code. Finally, the player must find the door to the Trick Master's room and write the code on it to gain access. Upon being found, the Trick Master will reward the player, and the player may take a shortcut passage out of the Trick House.

While the rooms in Trick House use mostly the same gimmicks in Emerald as were used in Ruby and Sapphire, the layouts of the rooms are each changed slightly. Trainers, items and the password scrolls are in different locations, and the maze's course changes as well. However, it is only their locations that differ; the items and Trainers in each room are the same in all versions except for the Seventh Puzzle room. Between Ruby and Sapphire, and Emerald, the Trick Master's hiding spots in the first room also change.

Players can take the challenges as they earn new Gym Badges, but the final challenge cannot be taken until they defeat the Elite Four. Each one, however, is only available once and they must be completed in order.

  • Sell one Great Ball and buy one Potion. How much money remains? (Nothing)
  • Sell one Escape Rope and buy one Antidote. How much remains? (PokémonDollar.png175)
  • Do one Full Heal and Great Ball cost more than one Revive? (They will cost less.)
  • Rustboro Gym Leader Roxanne used a Geodude. Was it male or female? (♀)
  • In Dewford Hall, were there more men or women? (Males)
  • The first trainer in Dewford Gym was male or female? (Female)

The seventh room is filled with spinners similar to Mossdeep Gym. The player must navigate the maze of spinners and pull switches to change their directions to advance through the room. In Pokémon Emerald, the room is instead full of Trainers standing on spinners that rotate when switches are triggered, due to Mossdeep Gym being redesigned for Emerald.

Sapphire
Emerald Trick House puzzle room 8 E.png
 

The eight room is divided into two areas, an upper and lower area. Both are made up primarily of polished floors lined with pots. Stepping on the polished floor will send the player sliding across it until they hit an obstacle. The player must navigate their way across both floors to conquer Trick Master's final challenge.

After the player talks to the Trick Master, he will leave. A Nugget can be found under his cushion.

In the anime

The Trick House in the anime

Ash and his friends visited the Trick House in A Poké-BLOCK Party!, which is located within Mauville City. The Trick House was holding a contest, with a free year's supply of Pokéblock as the prize. It is the last place the wild Jigglypuff from Neon Town has been seen.

Trivia

  • Each scroll has a compliment about the Trick Master on it (Trick Master is fabulous, Trick Master is smart, Trick Master is coveted, Trick Master is cool, Trick Master is a genius, Trick Master is my life, Trick Master is huggable, Trick Master I love.).
  • In puzzle five some of the tiles are arranged in the shape of a question mark in Ruby and Sapphire. In Emerald, the tiles are arranged in the shape of two exclamation marks instead. These punctuation mark arrangements tie in with the trivia-based nature of the fifth puzzle.
