Survival Area (Japanese: サバイバルエリア Survival Area) is an area in northern Sinnoh accessible after completing the Sinnoh Pokédex. According to the in-game text, it is a place where "Trainers gather to work out and hone their battling skills." Survival Area is also a training place for those who lose in the Battle Tower/Battle Frontier. There are only five buildings in the Survival Area, including a Pokémon Center and Poké Mart. In the southernmost house, the player may obtain TM42 (Facade). In the westernmost one, Buck's grandfather lives. The last house, inhabited by a Hiker, is reachable only via Route 226. In Pokémon Platinum, this hiker acts as one of the game's three new Move Tutors.

Places of interest


Main article: Battleground

In front of the entrance to the Battleground is a spot where the rival stands in Platinum after the player completes the Stark Mountain sidequest. He can be rematched once a day every Saturday and Sunday.

The Gym Leaders and the Trainers the player teamed up with in Sinnoh are here and available for battle. Up to four of these Trainers appear each day and the player can battle them only once a day. The Gym Leaders' and Trainers' Pokémon levels are between 61 and 66.


Pokémon Diamond and Pearl

In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, the population of Survival Area is 20. This makes it a medium-sized town for the Battle Zone, but one of the smallest in Sinnoh overall.

Pokémon Platinum

In Pokémon Platinum, 35 different characters can appear in the Survival Area, including the Gym Leaders and the Stat Trainers, but only a maximum of 26 people can be found simultaneously in the town, having only 22 when excluding visiting Trainers. This makes it a medium-sized town by both the standards of the Battle Zone and Sinnoh overall.

Pokémon Platinum

Barry can be battled at the Survival Area on Saturdays and Sundays. After the Elite Four has been defeated 10 times, Barry's Pokémon's levels each increase by 10, and his prize money becomes PokémonDollar.png7500. After the Elite Four has been defeated 20 times, his Pokémon gain 10 more levels, and his prize money increases to PokémonDollar.png8500.

Turtwig If the player chose Turtwig:

Chimchar If the player chose Chimchar:

Piplup If the player chose Piplup:


  • The Cameraman near the southern house reveals that he filmed a documentary on the red Gyarados, which is implied to be the same shown in part at the very beginning of the game.
  • Even after the player is able to enter the Battleground, if A is pressed in front of door, it will still say that "The door is shut tight. "Members Only" is painted on it".

Name origin

The name may come from the fact that it is one of the most remote of the incorporated areas of Sinnoh, separated from all others by Routes 225 and 226, both of which feature very rugged landscapes.
