==In the anime==
  +
[[File:Po Town anime.png|thumb|250px|Po Town in the {{pkmn|anime}}]]
  +
Po Town first appeared in ''[[SM115|The Dealer of Destruction!]]'', where [[Team Skull]] watched a [[television]] broadcast of the press conference announcing the [[Alola League]] at the [[Shady House]].
  +
{{-}}
  +
  +
==In the manga==

[[File:Po Town Adventures.png|thumb|250px|Po Town in Pokémon Adventures]]
  +
===In the Pokémon Adventures manga===
  +
Po Town debuted in ''[[PASM14|Flash and Cosmog's Secret]]''. [[Gladion]] traveled there after being made a [[Team Skull]] Enforcer by [[Guzma]]. Shortly after arriving, Gladion was attacked by [[Plumeria]] and a group of {{tc|Team Skull Grunt}}s, who wanted to see if he was skilled enough for the job. Though Gladion proved himself during the battle, his negative attitude angered Plumeria to the point where she refused to accept him as a true member of Team Skull. When Plumeria told Gladion to follow her, Gladion complied, but was momentarily distracted when a {{p|Zygarde}} [[List of Pokémon with form differences#Zygarde|Core]] jumped past him.
  +
  +
In [[PASM17]], [[Ilima]], [[Lana]], [[Kiawe]], [[Mallow]], [[Acerola]], and [[Hau]] arrived in Po Town to have a talk with Team Skull. Guzma, appearing on the [[Shady House]]'s balcony, seemed amused by the suggestion, and accepted the offer to talk, if the group could get into the house first. At that moment, the [[Trial Captain]]s and Hau found themselves surrounded by a group of [[Ultra Beast]]s.
  +
  +
The three beasts proceeded to easily best their opponents, but when Guzma noticed that the Captains' Pokémon were still hanging on, he revealed a {{p|Cosmog}} that he had in his possession and had it open more Ultra Wormholes to summon more beasts. The group was saved by Gladion, who used his {{TP|Gladion|Type: Null}} to fight the Ultra Beasts, which it did with ease due to its status as a Pokémon specifically created to fight them. Afterward, Guzma was kidnapped by a {{p|Nihilego}}, which dragged him into an Ultra Wormhole with it. The other beasts then broke out of Po Town's barrier, proceeding to cause havoc on the rest of Ula'ula.
  +
  +
While the Captains and Gladion headed out to help the people of Ula'ula and stop the Ultra Beasts, {{adv|Sun}} and {{adv|Moon}}, who had followed the Captains to Po Town, stayed behind to collect Zygarde Cells. The two were soon approached by [[Looker]] and {{FB|Salon Maiden|Anabel}} from the [[International Police]], who wanted to ask them questions regarding the Ultra Beasts. After they had agreed to pay Sun six million yen for his information, he told them everything about the Ultra Beasts he saw. Not much after Anabel had sent Looker out to identify and locate the Ultra Beasts, the three {{pkmn|Trainer}}s were attacked by a {{p|Blacephalon}}. Their attempt at {{pkmn2|caught|catching}} it failed, but they were saved by the appearance of {{p|Tapu Bulu}}, who {{m|Whirlwind|blew it away}}. While Sun completed his job of delivering a [[Mirage Berry]] to Tapu Bulu, Anabel thought about [[Colress|a certain man]] hiding somewhere in [[Alola]], who could be able to create [[Beast Ball|a Poké Ball capable of catching Ultra Beasts]].
  +
  +
==Trivia==
  +
* This is the only city or town in Alola where the background music doesn't change depending on the time of day.
  +
* In [[Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon]], one of the Team Skull Grunts found here says that he's from [[Kalos]].

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Po Town debuted in Flash and Cosmog's Secret. Gladion traveled there after being made a Team Skull Enforcer by Guzma. Shortly after arriving, Gladion was attacked by Plumeria and a group of Team Skull Grunts, who wanted to see if he was skilled enough for the job. Though Gladion proved himself during the battle, his negative attitude angered Plumeria to the point where she refused to accept him as a true member of Team Skull. When Plumeria told Gladion to follow her, Gladion complied, but was momentarily distracted when a Zygarde Core jumped past him.

In PASM17, Ilima, Lana, Kiawe, Mallow, Acerola, and Hau arrived in Po Town to have a talk with Team Skull. Guzma, appearing on the Shady House's balcony, seemed amused by the suggestion, and accepted the offer to talk, if the group could get into the house first. At that moment, the Trial Captains and Hau found themselves surrounded by a group of Ultra Beasts.

The three beasts proceeded to easily best their opponents, but when Guzma noticed that the Captains' Pokémon were still hanging on, he revealed a Cosmog that he had in his possession and had it open more Ultra Wormholes to summon more beasts. The group was saved by Gladion, who used his Type: Null to fight the Ultra Beasts, which it did with ease due to its status as a Pokémon specifically created to fight them. Afterward, Guzma was kidnapped by a Nihilego, which dragged him into an Ultra Wormhole with it. The other beasts then broke out of Po Town's barrier, proceeding to cause havoc on the rest of Ula'ula.

While the Captains and Gladion headed out to help the people of Ula'ula and stop the Ultra Beasts, Sun and Moon, who had followed the Captains to Po Town, stayed behind to collect Zygarde Cells. The two were soon approached by Looker and Anabel from the International Police, who wanted to ask them questions regarding the Ultra Beasts. After they had agreed to pay Sun six million yen for his information, he told them everything about the Ultra Beasts he saw. Not much after Anabel had sent Looker out to identify and locate the Ultra Beasts, the three Trainers were attacked by a Blacephalon. Their attempt at catching it failed, but they were saved by the appearance of Tapu Bulu, who blew it away. While Sun completed his job of delivering a Mirage Berry to Tapu Bulu, Anabel thought about a certain man hiding somewhere in Alola, who could be able to create a Poké Ball capable of catching Ultra Beasts.

Trivia

  • This is the only city or town in Alola where the background music doesn't change depending on the time of day.
