Places of interest

Pokémon Center

The Mikan Island Pokémon Center is located in the town. It is a large building with many windows, a square red roof, and a large "P" over the doorway. This Pokémon Center has two floors. On the ground floor is a large front desk, seats for the Trainers, and telephones. On the second floor, there are seats looking out the large windows with views of the ocean. It is not shown, but the Pokémon Center is most likely run by a Nurse Joy.

Mikan Gym

Main article: Mikan Gym

Away from the town, down a long path, is the Mikan Gym. Outside, the Gym Leader's brother sets side traps to test the Trainer. The Gym Leader of the Gym is Cissy.

Inside, there is a battle arena that opens up for a pool underneath. The main arena's right wall can open up like a garage door, so the challengers and Gym Leader can hit frisbees with their Water Gun. The left side's bleachers open up to reveal a row of empty soda cans the challengers and Gym Leaders also hit with Water Gun.

In the back there is a large beach area where the challengers and Gym leader compete in a Pokémon Wave Ride. There are flags indicating where the Pokémon should turn. If the challenger should win the battle, then they get the Coral-Eye Badge.
