Join Avenue (Japanese: ジョインアベニュー Join Avenue) is a building introduced in Pokémon Black and White 2. It is located between Route 4 and Nimbasa City, replacing Nimbasa Gate which was previously there.

Initially, Join Avenue is an empty building, as it is the player's task to invite visitors, making them residents. These visitors are NPCs visiting daily, known as the player's fans, or avatars of other players which have been registered by the player's game. Visitors can be invited to open their own dream shop or recommended to visit another shop on Join Avenue, increasing its popularity if the customer is satisfied. Exclamations akin to those appearing in the streets of Castelia City can be seen in Join Avenue.

Join Avenue
An avenue that grows as you deepen
exchanges with other people.

Attracting visitors

The amount of NPC fans visiting daily increases with the rank of Join Avenue. In most cases, an NPC fan will yield less popularity points than an avatar of another player, since NPC fans' popularity point yield values are 75% of those of the latter.

To get the avatar of another player to visit Join Avenue, the player can do the following:

  • Register the player on the C-Gear's Tag Log
  • Have a battle or trade with the player (both wireless and Wi-Fi are included)
  • Have a person leave a footprint at the player's Dream World house

Gym Leaders will also visit the avenue once in a while. These cannot be invited to open a shop, but can be recommended to visit one, yielding 1000 popularity points if led to an appropriate shop.

Sometimes, visitors will be persuaded by shop owners to visit shops beyond the one initially recommended, potentially increasing the rank of every shop on the avenue. However, only the final shop popularity gain yielded in such a chain will count on the overall avenue rank.

Visitors frequently greet the player with a souvenir item when engaged.

The avenue can hold no more than thirteen visitors at a time.


Assistants will reside in the player's office, providing various services. This is a list of the assistants that the player can gain:

"Leave registration to me!"
Can check avenue status, change player's avenue title, change various phrases, and (after reaching Rank 10) change avenue name (under usual restrictions).
  • Ace Trainer Future (Japanese: ミライ Mirai), initial resident.
"Ask me about shops!"
Can tell a perfect shop for the player, letting the player choose from a list of different types of shops. The length of this list increases with the rank of Join Avenue, ultimately containing all eight shop types.
  • Scientist Gardner (Japanese: パソキチ Pasokichi), reward from the owner upon reaching Rank 2.
"Let me organize everything!"
Can move the player's Pokémon in the Pokémon Storage System, show various statistics about the player and residing avatars of other players, change the roles of assistants, and change the physical order of shops in the avenue. After reaching Rank 6, this assistant can also change the appearance of the avenue's neon arch between four styles: Star Orange, Aurora Purple, Cloud Light Blue, and Stone Green.
  • Nurse Elethia (Japanese: チュ Chu), reward from the owner upon reaching Rank 4.
"Leave Pokémon healing to me!"
Can heal the player's Pokémon.

The roles of these assistants can be swapped at will (as mentioned above), and after reaching Rank 8, they can be replaced by visiting avatars of other players that the player is able to recruit.

In addition, NPCs will start residing in the players office and on the avenue, as Join Avenue's rank increases. These will ask the player multiple-choice questions concerning personal information and preferences. The answers given will be used to determine various outcomes when players interact with each other in Join Avenue. One of these NPCs, namely the man residing in the player's office wearing a black suit and shades, does not follow this pattern, and will instead provide some information about the current shop owners in the player's avenue - this applies only to the avatars of other players owning a shop, as the man will have no information about regular NPC fans.


Shops are created when inviting a visitor to open one. Join Avenue can contain a maximum of eight shops at a time. When the maximum eight shops is reached, the player can replace any shop with a new one.

By recommending a shop to an appropriate visitor, the shop's popularity will increase. Popularity determines the overall rank of Join Avenue, which influences the prices of Join Avenue services. It also determines the individual rank of the recommended shop, which determines the services it provides. A shop starts at Rank 1 and will stop increasing in rank afer reaching Rank 10, although it will still receive popularity points, affecting the overall rank of Join Avenue. All shops change appearance and name when reaching Rank 4, and again at Rank 8.

Upon reaching a new avenue rank or shop rank, the amount of popularity points required to reach the next rank will always be at its maximum, ignoring any popularity point gain exceeding the previous requirement. For example, if the avenue needs 20 points to reach the next rank, there is no difference between an increase of 20 points or 1000 points.

There are eight different types of shops, but some variation in terms of services provided is also found within most shop types, depending on the shop owner. For example, Scientist Anneli and Pokémon Ranger Jenna can both open Dojos, but provide different services. Similarly, Flower Shops offer type-resistant Berries, but one would need all four variations of the shop in order to collect each type of these Berries.

Any service provided by a shop can only be provided once per day, unless the shop's rank goes up, in which case it will refresh. When Raffle Shops and Antique Shops are refreshed in this manner, their outcomes will not change.

Antique Shop

Visitor wanting to open an Antique Shop:

"I would want to collect unique items and surprise everyone."

An Antique Shop (Japanese: ふるどうぐや Secondhand Store) sells various unidentified items which are appraised by the shop owner after purchasing, granting the player a Hard Stone or a surprise item, such as an evolutionary stone.

There are no service variations between Antique Shops.


Visitor wanting to open a Café:

"I would want to make delicious meals for Pokémon and make them happy."

A Café (Japanese: カフェ Café) offers various services increasing a Pokémon's friendship, effort values, and level.

There are two variations of Cafés in terms of services provided.


Nurseries (Japanese: ほいくじょ Nursery) offer various services that make Eggs hatch faster.

Nurseries are initially inaccessible. Once unlocked, by defeating the Champion and reaching Rank 15, certain compatible visitors (such as Hiker Jaylen or Nurse Jess) will change shop type, meaning that they will ask to open a Nursery upon invitation, rather than their previous shop type. In the event that such a character is already residing in Join Avenue with their initial shop type, the player can change that shop into a Nursery.

  • Like other in-game features depending on the DS clock, Join Avenue will be interrupted for a day if any changes are made to the date or time settings of the DS system in use (including those caused by changing to another DS system).
  • Raffle Shops are the only places the player can get a Master Ball outside of the main story without interaction with other players in Generation V.
  • All 49 NPC fans visiting Join Avenue have names beginning with letters J or A, in reference to the location's name. This is also the case in the Japanese versions, with the exception of the differently programmed first visitor Janus, who is named ハジメ Hajime.
    • Furthermore, their overworld sprite appearances are limited to those available on Trainer cards.
  • Unlike all other locations in Unova, the Town Map's location for landmarks is instead replaced by three live statistics: Current avenue rank, Recommended or invited, and Current visitors.
