Ferrum (Japanese: フェルム地方 Ferrum-chihō) is the name of the region that serves as the setting for Pokkén Tournament. It is comprised of a number of areas including cities, towns, stadiums, ruins, and other locations such as a volcano, an island and even a dragon's nest.

Initial Areas

The main region is split between six areas a player can initially visit: Old Ferrum Town, Techne City, Tellur Town, Ferrum Stadium, Selen Island and Neos City. On the main menu of Pokkén Tournament, each area is labelled by its primary function, but when the area is selected, the name of the town appears in a video screen.

Old Ferrum Town

Old Ferrum Town, also called My Town, is where the player can go to adjust their game settings, Pokémon, character profile, Nia's settings, as well as view their Battle Records. It is located in the center of the Ferrum Region.

Techne City

Techne City is a place where Nia teaches the player about the aspects of Pokkén Tournament. It is located in the southeastern portion of the Ferrum Region. There are four main lessons of Practice to chose from:

  • "Tutorial" teaches the player about the basics of battle, the Attack Triangle, and several other techniques.
  • "Free Training" allows the player to set the battle rules to their liking and face off against a CPU Pokémon, which can be told what to do and how to react by a pause menu.
  • "Action Dojo" goes over the different moves for each of the Pokémon. The moves Nia talks about will be based on the Pokémon selected.
  • "Combo Dojo" goes over the different combos the player's Pokémon can perform. The moves Nia talks about will be based on the Pokémon selected.

Tellur Town

Tellur Town is where one player can initially go to face off against a CPU opponent. It is located in the northeastern portion of the Ferrum Region.

The player can chose to do either "Basic Battle", which is a battle that follows the rules set up, or "Extra Battle", which includes special boosts into the fight. The player sets the rules and chooses the battling and support Pokémon for both themselves and their opponent before starting the battle.

Ferrum Stadium

The Ferrum League is where players initially go to test their skills in battle. It is located in the north of the Ferrum Region. The league is single player only.

In order to progress in the Ferrum League, the player has to battle several challengers. Upon beating a group of them, the player's rank will increase based on how well they did. The Ferrum League is split into several smaller leagues and the player starts at the bottom. If the player manages to defeat enough challengers to make at least rank 8, they will be able to partake in the tournament. Completing the tournament will allow the player to face against the league master. The player can also do Free Battles in the league, which pits them against a random opponent within the league, but won't affect the player's rank.

Selen Island

Local Battle is where two players initially go to face off against each other. In order to do so, one player (Player One) uses the Wii U's Gamepad and the other player (Player Two) uses a secondary controller, such as a Wii U Pro controller. Player One battles using the controls and screen on the Wii U Gamepad, whereas the second player uses their controller and the television screen. The island is located to the east in the Ferrum Region.

After setting the rules, both players chose from the available battling Pokémon, followed by a set of Support Pokémon, and then the arena. The battle will begin once both players are ready to fight.

Neos City

Neos City is where a player can initially go to fight a random opponent or a friend online. The city is located in the south of the Ferrum Region. Players can partake in either a "Rank Match" or a "Friendly Match". Rank Match has two players battle to increase their online ranking, whereas Friendly Match is meant for players who only want to battle without worrying about their rank. Friends can also only be battled in Friendly Match.

When searching for an opponent, the player may face off against a CPU opponent while the game is searching.

Arenas

There are various arenas that battles in the Ferrum Region take place on. Some are available from the start of the game to use in the single player training or multiplayer modes, whereas others must be unlocked by meeting certain conditions. Some arenas are in the same locations as the initial areas.
