Places of interest

Shady House

Main article: Shady House

Shady House is the base of Team Skull, a dilapidated mansion at the far end of Po Town, where Guzma also stays from time to time.

Pokémon Center

As the Pokémon Center, like the rest of Po Town, is occupied by Team Skull, no operational Poké Mart, Pokémon Center Café, or PC can be found there. A Team Skull Grunt will, however, offer to heal the player's Pokémon for PokémonDollar.png10 whenever she's asked to. After the player has become Champion, the Grunt, along with her cohort, will offer to sell them a Skull Tank and Team Skull CapUSUM. If the player purchases the clothing, the two Grunts will leave the Pokémon Center, leaving it with no more functional use.

Po Town Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Po Town debuted in the Sun & Moon chapter. Gladion traveled there after being made a Team Skull Enforcer by Guzma. Shortly after arriving, Gladion was attacked by Plumeria and a group of Team Skull Grunts, who wanted to see if he was skilled enough for the job. Though Gladion proved himself during the battle, his negative attitude angered Plumeria to the point where she refused to accept him as a true member of Team Skull. When Plumeria told Gladion to follow her, Gladion complied, but was momentarily distracted when a Zygarde Core jumped past him.

Later, Ilima, Lana, Kiawe, Mallow, Acerola, and Hau arrived in Po Town to have a talk with Team Skull. Guzma, appearing on the Shady House's balcony, seemed amused by the suggestion, and accepted the offer to talk, if the group could get into the house first. At that moment, the Trial Captains and Hau found themselves surrounded by a group of Ultra Beasts.

Trivia

  • This is the only city or town in Alola where the background music doesn't change depending on the time of day.
