From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Michina Town (Japanese: ミチーナ Michina) is an anime-exclusive location in the Sinnoh region and the setting of Arceus and the Jewel of Life. It is a riverside town surrounded by flourishing nature. Most of the town is agricultural, with numerous fields growing crops such as corn and watermelon. The town's centerpiece is the Michina Ruins.
Thousands of years ago, Michina Town was a desolate place, which was nothing but a wasteland. But the Jewel of Life's power that Arceus gave Damos made the town's soil rich and fertile. Then Damos constructed a shrine at the peak of a mountain in order to praise Arceus's kindness.
Places of interest
The Michina Ruins are the remnants of the shrine made by Damos, which are located at the peak of a huge, rocky mountain in Michina. Close to the ruins is a beautiful lake, as well as multiple waterfalls that cascade down the mountainside.
The ruins are guarded by Sheena and Kevin. The Time-Space Axis can be found in the basement of the ruins; it is used by Sheena and Kevin to monitor disruptions in the time-space continuum. The basement is also the location where the Jewel of Life is safeguarded.
