Template:Infobox town

Veilstone City (Japanese: トバリシティ Tobari City) is a city in eastern Sinnoh. It is situated near the sea to the north, with Route 214 and Pastoria City to the south, and Route 215 to the west. It houses Maylene, the Veilstone City Gym Leader, along with the headquarters for Team Galactic.

Veilstone is carved out of steep and rocky mountains, giving the city rock walls that project a cold atmosphere. It is fairly isolated and has little contact with other cities. Team Galactic also constructed the Galactic Warehouse and their headquarters, the Galactic Veilstone Building there. This city is also home to the Sinnoh region's department store, much like Celadon City in Kanto, Goldenrod City in Johto, and Lilycove City in Hoenn. The Veilstone Game Corner also has slot machines that people can play to try to win coins to buy TMs. Veilstone is famous for its stone, including its meteorites, which can change Deoxys between its many forms.

In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, as the player leaves the Gym, Dawn/Lucas will be waiting outside and will tell the player that Team Galactic stole her/his Pokédex. The player has to team up with her/him to defeat two Galactic Grunts.

Places of interest

Veilstone Department Store

Main article: Veilstone Department Store

The Veilstone Department Store is located in the middle of Veilstone City, west of the Pokémon Center. It is the main shopping district in the city. Veilstone lacks a regular Poké Mart, but its department store sells all the usual items and more. This department store is similar to the Celadon Department Store, the Goldenrod Department Store, and the Lilycove Department Store. The store offers a wide variety of items on its five floors. When players enter the store, there is a lady to the left of the entrance who will give away a mask to be put in the Fashion Case. The people at the reception counter sell items commonly found in Poké Marts. On the second floor a man behind the counter will give away the Counter Pokétch app. Battle items and vitamins are sold here as well. TMs are sold on the third floor, while Secret Base decorations are sold on the fourth floor. Inexpensive healing items, Lemonade, Soda Pop, and Fresh Water, can be bought on the top floor from vending machines. A basement floor, added in Pokémon Platinum, sells Poffins, Berries, and Lava Cookies.

Galactic Veilstone Building

Main article: Galactic Veilstone Building

The Team Galactic HQ is a large multi-story building in northern Veilstone City. It, along with the Galactic Eterna Building, is one of the main centers for Team Galactic's operations. It housed the legendary Pokémon Uxie, Azelf, and Mesprit for a brief time. At first, the player cannot enter the Team Galactic HQ without a Storage Key, which can only be found in the Galactic Warehouse and must be obtained there first. Once inside, the player must make their way to the top, where they meet and battle Cyrus, who gives away the Master Ball on his defeat.

Veilstone Game Corner

Main article: Veilstone Game Corner

The Veilstone Game Corner is located in the southern Veilstone City near the gym. The woman behind the counter to the left of the slots sells coins to the player - 50 coins for PokémonDollar.png1000, or 500 coins for PokémonDollar.png10000. There are sixteen slot machines in the Game Corner, with four of them having people already seated at them. Each spin of the machine takes 3 coins, which are inserted by pressing the X button. Reels will start spinning either when the D-pad is pressed down or the X button is pressed again. Y stops the left reel, B stops the middle, and A stops the right. The Bonus Round occurs when a Clefairy pops out of the Poké Ball on the touch screen. Once the Clefairy appears, players must continue spinning the reels until they get a 100-coin bonus. The odds of getting the bonus seem to improve if the slots are activated to the beat of Clefairy's clapping. Prizes are sold in the house to the right of the Game Corner.

Galactic Warehouse

Main article: Galactic Warehouse

The Galactic Warehouse is a small storage facility that is connected to Team Galactic's HQ, found on the north-west side of Veilstone City. Once the player obtains the Storage Key, the player can enter the HQ through closed-off stairs. Only one Galactic Grunt stays here, keeping his guard status throughout the game. HM02 (Fly) can be found here along with a rare Dusk Stone.

Massage Lady

Main article: Massage Lady

The Massage Lady lives in southern Veilstone City, in the house nearest the gym. Once a day, the Massage Lady massages the player's Pokémon for free and finds accessories for dressing up in Pokémon Contests. It is said massages make the massaged Pokémon happier. The Massage Lady lives with her brother and a Pachirisu. Her boyfriend is the Scarf Guy in Pastoria City, whom she keeps in contact with through mail, which she lets Pokémon deliver.


Four meteorites can be seen on the east side of Veilstone City. If the player approaches one with a Deoxys in their party, it will change Forme depending on which was approached.

Prize Exchange

A man in the Prize Exchange will tell the player what type Hidden Power will act as for any Pokémon he is shown.

Veilstone Gym

Veilstone Gym in Platinum
Main article: Veilstone Gym

The Veilstone Gym is the official gym of Veilstone City. It is based on Template:Type2 Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Maylene. Trainers who defeat her receive the Cobble Badge. The Veilstone Gym is a dojo comprised of several smaller rooms intersected with mobile walls. Trainers wait in the tiny cubicles. To get to Maylene, the walls must be shifted in and out of the cubicles so that the empty spaces in the walls line up with each other and a path is clear. Maylene's students are four brothers who call themselves the "Karate Quads" and insist they fight "for LOVE!" "for COURAGE!" "for HOPE!" and "for TEARS!". In Platinum, the player must push around punching bags, in order to knock over obstacles in the player's path. The Black-belts await the player in roped-off boxing arenas. After Leader Maylene is defeated, she will give the player the Cobble Badge, TM60 (Drain Punch), and the ability to use Fly outside of battle.


The population of Veilstone City is 54 people, putting it only one person behind Hearthome City, meaning it is the third largest city in Sinnoh.

  • Veilstone's Japanese town motto is いしに かこまれた くうかん.
  • On the way to Veilstone Gym, the player will run into Professor Rowan's assistant. If the player is playing as Lucas, Dawn will respond that she has been shopping at the department store. Conversely, if the player is playing as Dawn, Lucas will respond that he has been playing at the Game Corner.
  • In the Japanese version of Pokémon Platinum, there is an NPC who speaks to the player in English. He is next to the pillar where Rock Climb can be used. In the English version, the NPC speaks in French instead.
  • Veilstone City is Paul's hometown.
  • Veilstone City has many similarities to Celadon City in Kanto, as it has a Department Store, a Game Corner, a Gym and a villainous team's hideout.
  • The clown that gives the player the Coin Case says the famous internet phrase, "A winner is you", provided that the player answers correctly to his question.
  • Much like the shop in Boon Island in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, there's a shop in the Department Store whose owner has Rage Candy Bars for sale, albeit being sold out. This has been one of the reasons for speculation at the remakes of Pokémon Gold and Silver, which actually became true with the announcement of Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.
    • Here the item is mentioned as Rage Candy Bar whereas in FireRed and LeafGreen, it's mentioned as Rage Candybar. It's original English name is Ragecandybar, spelled altogether.
