Pokémon world locations

The Village Bridge (Japanese: ビレッジブリッジ Village Bridge) is a stone arch bridge that connects Route 11 in central Unova to Route 12 in eastern Unova.

It is said that Village Bridge is over 200 years old, and was constructed after the river beneath it flooded and washed away the houses along its banks. The houses were rebuilt on top of the bridge to prevent the town from being destroyed again. An elderly stone cutter, whose great-great-great-grandfather was around when the bridge was built, is now in charge of keeping the bridge in good condition.

Places of interest

The woman in the furthest house to the right will heal the player's Pokémon.

A woman and her four Patrat initially live here, but once the player enters her house, she leaves for greener pastures. She and her troupe can then be found on Marvelous Bridge. She will award the player with a Big Mushroom after winning a cup-and-ball game. It can be obtained once per day.

Village Bridge Restaurant

Village Bridge Restaurant
Village Sandwiches are our specialty!

On the southeast end of the area is a small sandwich van called the Village Bridge Restaurant, which is noted for its specialty Berry sandwiches. Once Baker Chris is defeated, she will ask the player to temporarily work for her, triggering a minigame. The object is to remember the orders of the four customers, repeat them to Chris, and then serve them in the correct order. The player will receive a Lum Berry as a reward. This can be done once per day.

In Black 2 and White 2, the sandwich shop has been moved into one of the buildings; however, the minigame can no longer be played at it.

Secret singing area

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, there is a secret room under the bridge where a girl is singing. Upon finding her, she forces the player outside. A girl on the bridge will reward the player for finding the source of the mysterious voice.

Sports courts

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, a tennis and basketball court replace the Village Bridge Restaurant. Here, Smashers and Hoopsters can be fought.

Orange shirt man

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, if the player has given a man in an orange shirt a Fresh Water at Skyarrow Bridge, Driftveil Drawbridge, and Tubeline Bridge then they will meet up with the same man here. Should the player give him another Fresh Water, then he will become rehydrated and dash to the Marvelous Bridge.

Demographics

Pokémon Black and White

The Village Bridge area has a population of 30.

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

The Village Bridge area's population increased to 32.

Variable scoring

Grass flute, second acoustic guitar, beatboxing, and enka vocal parts can be added to the background track by speaking to NPCs Derleth (Japanese: タンボ Tambo), Aickman (Japanese: ソン Son), Russo (Japanese: ガッチー Gatchī), and Koontz (Japanese: れいぞう Reizō), respectively. The initial kana of these NPCs' Japanese names make up the sound of the word "たそがれ" tasogare (meaning dusk), which is one of the more clearly heard words in the song. Similarly, the initial letters of these NPCs' English names spell out the word "dark", fitting their title as the Dark musicians of Village Bridge.

This is a fan interpretation of the vocals:

Japanese English translation
俺はね鴎に惚れた黄昏親父。
俺はね鴎に惚れた黄昏親父。

俺はね鴎に惚れた黄昏親父。
俺はね鴎に惚れた黄昏親父。
青い海を眺めては涙、
青い港は鴎飛び去って。
I am a geezer standing in the dusk, mesmerized by the gulls.
I am a geezer standing in the dusk, mesmerized by the gulls.

I am a geezer standing in the dusk, mesmerized by the gulls.
I am a geezer standing in the dusk, mesmerized by the gulls.
Gazing fixedly into the blue sea, I bemoan with shed tears,
as I yearn for the lovely gulls soaring above the blue harbor.

Trivia

  • Village Bridge draws inspiration from the Ponte Vecchio, a Medieval bridge over the River Arno, in Florence, Italy.
  • Upon returning to the house that belonged to the woman with the Patrat, a couple will have newly moved into it. The woman will comment that the house "smells a little like Patrat."
  • Much like the other bridges, the Bicycle and Surf themes are not played here. However, it is the only one of Unova's bridges where the player can use Surf.
  • The Village Bridge is one of two settlements in a main series game, other than a player's hometown, not to feature a Pokémon Center. The other is Anville Town.
  • Although Seviper and Zangoose are natural enemies, they can be found fighting together in wild Double Battles in dark grass.
  • In the English-language adaptations, Derleth, Koontz, Aickman, and Russo are named after the science fiction writers August Derleth, Dean Koontz, Robert Aickman, and Richard Paul Russo respectively.
  • One of the customers at the Sandwich Shop in Black and White owns a Pikachu, despite Pikachu not being native to Unova.
