Join Avenue (Japanese: ジョインアベニュー Join Avenue) is a building located between Route 4 and Nimbasa City, replacing the gate that was previously here.

Initially, Join Avenue is simply a long and empty building. However, if the game has connected with another player, then that player's avatar will appear in the former's Join Avenue. Fans of the first player will also appear in Join Avenue every day. People who are in Join Avenue can open or be shown a shop. Similarly to the streets of Castelia City, many exclamations can be seen on the screen in Join Avenue.

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

Attracting customers

To get more "real players" to visit Join Avenue, the player can do the following:

  • By getting people on the C-Gear's Tag Log
  • By doing link trades and battles
  • By having a person leave a footprint at the player's Dream World house
  • By having Dream Pals (not 100% true)
  • By doing Wi-Fi Battles and GTS trading, either normally or over Negotiations

NPCs will also visit the player's Join Avenue daily, and as Join Avenue grows in rank, more NPCs will appear at a time. However, NPCs shown around the shops will not earn a shop as many popularity points as real players.


When the player get their Join Avenue's rank high enough, the owner (a Clerk♂) will award the player a helper. This is a list of the list of helpers that the player can get:

  • an Ace Trainer♂ that will let the player choose which shop the player can open. More shop choices are available as Join Avenue's rank goes up. (Rank 1)
  • an Ace Trainer♀ measures the player's rank as well as changing their catchphrase, greeting and thankful message. She can also change shop/helper positions. (Rank 1)
  • a NPC (wearing a tux and shades) that can tell the history of the friends of the player's friends. (Rank 2)
  • a Scientist♂ that can act as a PC, being able to change the player's Pokémon's positions. Later on, he can also change the color and shape of Join Avenue's ceiling. (Rank 4)
  • a Nurse that can heal the player's Pokemon. (Rank 6)

When the owner comes when the player reaches Rank 8, the player can recruit friends/NPC's to become helpers, replacing a helper. The player can only have a maximum of 4 helpers.

When the player reaches to Rank 10, the owner will allow the player to rename their avenue from the default name (Join Avenue) to any sort of name (e.g. Pete's Mall or Mary's Marketplace, etc.) The avenue name has the same restrictions as Pokémon nicknames.
