Platinum's Berlitz family crest
The House of Berlitz (Japanese: ベルリッツ家 House of Berlitz) is a powerful family in the Sinnoh region in the Pokémon Adventures manga. With a history spanning 200 years, and being economically powerful and extremely wealthy, the family's property comprises a thriving family business, several Grand Hotels all over the region and a massive mansion in Sandgem Town, among other things. Several members of the family are renowned academics specializing in Pokémon research. The family and its members have also partaken in and funded some research projects. The most notable of these was the Rayquaza Capture Project (Japanese: レックウザ捕獲プロジェクト), which studied ways of controlling Rayquaza and was conducted with the Pokémon Association with technology provided by the Devon Corporation and the Greater Mauville Holdings.
There is a long-standing coming of age tradition in the family in which the members of the family travel to the peak of Mt. Coronet to gather materials in order to craft their own family crests.
