マリオンシティ Marion City
|Celebi and Joy!
The valley town is home to a stone Celebi Shrine which predates its 50-year-old* Pokémon Center. It is also frequented by the Mythical Pokémon Celebi. Over its history, the area has developed from a small forest village with a few wooden houses, to a larger settlement akin to a city.
At first, the town was very modern, with a lot of high-rise buildings, and described as a polluted urban metropolis. A demolition crew were preparing to demolish the historic Pokémon Center in order to make way for a new office block with a new Pokémon Center at its base.
Ritchie, with Celebi's assistance, went back in time and managed to rescue Nick and his father from their deaths in a rockslide. As a result, Nick was elected as the town's present-day mayor. Marion Town had still developed into a city, though with many older buildings, trees, and a flowing river. The town has now embraced its old traditions and was better connected to nature, even going as far as restoring the historic Pokémon Center.
