Location of Cortondo in Paldea.

Cortondo (Japanese: セルクルタウン Cercle Town) is a town in the Paldea region, located in South Province (Area Two). Olives are the town's biggest export, and as such, it is also home to the Olive Harvest Festival, in which one of the activities involves rolling giant olive-shaped balls into a goal; this is believed to bring in great harvests.

Because of the Gym's specialized type, the people of this town tend to walk around accompanied by Bug-type Pokémon.

  • Two Vivillon with the Tundra and Continental patterns can be seen flying over the pool immediately east of Patisserie Soapberry. This is despite the fact that all Spewpa in Paldea will evolve into Vivillon's Fancy Pattern, unless the pattern is changed by sending a Postcard from Pokémon GO (only possible for Version 1.2.0. of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet onwards).
  • The tile patterns in the pools are identical to the water tiles from the Generation I map.
