The Meeting Place (Japanese: つどいのひろば The Meeting Plaza) is an area in PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure that connects all of the zones together. It is located in the center of the PokéPark and features a large tree complete with a tree house that increases in size throughout the story, and two stalls housing Misdreavus' photo store and Drifblim's transportation service.

In the final cutscene, Teddiursa is seen walking along and spots Pikachu's balloon and runs to tell the others. Pikachu lands with Chikorita, Piplup, Charmander and Mew, and the Pokémon at the Meeting Place congratulate them. A party is also held there, where Charmander's fireworks are finally shown, with all the Pokémon looking at them.

Notable features

Misdreavus' Stall

Here the player receives a camera from Misdreavus with which they can take photos using the - button on their Wii controller. If the player owns an SD card, they may transfer photos they have taken onto it so they may place the photos on their computer.

Drifblim's Stall

Here the player is introduced to Drifblim who will provide the player with transportation to and between zones for a fee of 20 berries (discounts to 10 berries once Drifblim is befriended and later made free after continued usage). In order to make a zone accessible through Drifblim's transportation the player must find a sign referred to as a Drifblim Stop located somewhere within each zone. The only one that does not have to be initially discovered is the one in the Meadow Zone as Drifblim explains that there is already a Drifblim there.

Pokémon Tutors

A series of Pokémon appear in the Meeting Place willing to train Pikachu's abilities for a fee. The cost for each lesson increases each time.


Electabuzz trains Pikachu's Thunderbolt and makes it able to reach farther, make it more accurate and make it stronger throughout the game.


Ponyta becomes available after completing Pelipper's Daring Dash for the first time. He trains Pikachu's Dash making him faster and, once the player gains access to the Lava Zone, enables him to perform a Double Dash, a much faster dash that is performed as a initial dash begins to slow down.

Bibarel comes to the Meeting Place after Bidoof has constructed all the bridges in the Beach Zone. Bibarel will train Pikachu's stamina boosting his HP in battle.


After he is unlocked in the Iceberg Zone, Primeape appears in the Meeting Place and teaches Pikachu how to use the move Iron Tail. He also enhances its strength with every training session.
