Naranja Academy is the oldest school in the Paldea region—built 805 years ago—and is located in the region's largest city, Mesagoza. It hosts classes which mostly relate to Pokémon. The school is attended by people from various regions across a wide range of age groups. Children and adults study in the same classes together; some classes are attended with Pokémon as well. The school faculty includes Clavell, the school director; and Jacq, the biology teacher.

In Pokémon Scarlet, the player enrolls at the academy, and meets fellow students such as Nemona, Arven, and Penny. Clavell assigns to the player the independent study project, the Treasure Hunt. Some students of the academy are delinquents, and have formed Team Star.


To get to the academy, students and faculty must climb a large outdoor staircase near the center of Mesagoza with over 150 steps in it, which has been described by students as "the worst staircase in the world." Upon entering the academy, students are greeted to a large entrance with three floors that also serves as the academy's library and general studying area. The most notable book in the library is the Scarlet Book to the right of the main entrance, which is described as a mysterious tome, and contains a large amount of detail surrounding the various mysteries of the Paldea region. The book was written by the historian Heath who was aided by his partner Cyclizar, with its contents being the result of an expedition funded by the academy. The tome covers Area Zero in the Great Crater of Paldea, along with the various Herba Mystica and Titan Pokémon.

The remainder of the lower floor of the library included a book called "Academy Rules and Regulations," which details how students should appear and behave within the academy, along with detailing that the Great Crater of Paldea is a prohibited area for any student's independent study; the "Student Registry," a nearly complete record of the students that have entered the academy and when; a book called "Pokémon Natures" that briefly covers Natures; "Status Conditions and Catching Pokémon," which covers how Pokémon that have their HP lowered and Pokémon that have a status condition are both easier to catch; "Types and Moves I," which briefly goes over types and explains the 50% boost from a Pokémon using moves that share the same type as it; "Types and Moves II," which details Terastallizing and explaining that Pokémon get a 50% boost when using an attack that matches both their original typing and their Tera Type when terastallizing; and finally, a book entitled "The Naranja Academy School Song."

The middle floor of the library is made up of two separate wings that are connected only by the upper and lower floors. The left half covers "Art: The Scenic Route," a monthly magazine with an article covering "Brassius, the Verdant Virtuoso;" the June issue of Occulture, a paranormal magazine that describes mysterious unidentified creatures; a book called "Festivals of Paldea," describing the Olive Harvest Festival in the town of Cortondo; the book "Appreciating Sunflora," which goes on to cover the connection between Sunflora to the town of Artazon; and "How to Become a Champion," a book that explains to trainers the requirements for them to reach the rank of Champion in the Paldea region. The right half of the floor covers a magazine called "Paldean Sports Monthly," which details "the Sub-zero Shredder['s]" sixth consecutive win in the Montenevera Cup and the upcoming Glaseado Mountain Cup; a magazine called "Sweet Truth," with an article about Cortondo's Patisserie Soapberry, which is owned by Katy; a magazine called "The Musician's Register," with an article covering Ryme, "The MC of RIP," and the initial passing of her partner Pokémon; and the July issue of Occulture.

The upper floor of the library contains three areas with various books and magazines. The left and right sections are connected on this floor by a central area that is directly above the main desk of the entrance. Bird Pokémon such as Fletchling are seen throughout the floor. The left side of this floor contains the book "Of People and Pokémon," which covers the general history of humans and Pokémon; the August issue of Occulture; and the book "Galar: A History," covering the events at Stow-on-Side when the mural in the town was destroyed by a Copperajah, leading to the discovery of a pair of Pokémon statues behind the destroyed mural and the true history of Galar. The central area contains a pamphlet called "Hall of Fame Badges: A Record," which explains the Hall of Fame Badge and those who have been awarded it, including Sada; and the book "Fine Food from Far Away," which details the Pewter Crunchies, the local speciality of the Kanto region's Pewter City, describing its limited popularity due to its appearance and taste. The right section containing the September and October issues of Occulture; and a book called "Charcadet's Adventures," that covers the first half of a battle between Charcadet and a Gengar, along with a decision between two sets of armor that Charcadet must pick from to beat Gengar.

In the anime

Main series

Naranja Academy in the anime

Naranja Academy appeared in Welcome to Paldea! in a cameo when Liko and Roy visited Mesagoza. In the next episode, they met one of the academy's students, Nemona.

In HZ046, Liko, Roy, and Dot enrolled in Naranja Academy as exchange students in order to learn more about Terastallization, receiving a Tera Orb each from Geeta upon entering. Sidian and Coral, disguised as students, also enrolled to keep an eye on Liko and Terapagos. Liko's classmate from Indigo Academy, Ann, had also been transferred there and had a battle with Liko before the latter and her friends headed to Cortondo to start their Terastal Training, which once completed, would give them permission to use Terastallization.

In HZ048, it was shown that the Naranja Academy helped Brassius organize the annual Artazon Arts Festival. During the event, Hassel and Nemona actively participated in the event and Nemona created art for the event's display.

In the anime, Naranja Academy offers a curriculum focused solely on the Terastal phenomenon, during with students must battle the Paldean Gym Leaders assigned to them by the academy. The Gym Leaders will judge the student based on their use of Terastallization. Moreover, students are not allowed to have Terastal battles with each other during this training course.
