The Sinnoh Festival

The Sinnoh Festival (Japanese: シンオウフェス Sinnoh Fest) is an event that appeared in The Arceus Chronicles (Part 1) in Canalave City. The purpose of the festival is to show off the past, culture, and products of the Sinnoh region.

Ash and his friends visited it during research in their internship as researchers at Cerise Laboratory.



Magikarp Salesman

In preparation for the event, several themed stores offer products to visitors. One of the shops is taken care of by the Magikarp salesman who is once again trying to sell his wares.

In two other stores, the image of a Combee and an Altaria are printed, but the products sold in them are not shown.


The Museum of Sinnoh Festival


Upon entering, event participants receive a complete set of clothing worn by residents of the past era. The museum tour includes:


The reigning Champion of the Sinnoh region, Cynthia, gives a lecture and presents the artifacts and paintings from the region's past. She gives participants a replica of a Poké Ball from that era, restored for the event.

Catching competition
The Hisuian first partner Pokémon

Accompanied by an explanation of how first partner Pokémon from other regions came to Sinnoh and how this may have affected them, the participants have to capture one of the first partners from the Hisui region (Oshawott, Rowlet, and Cyndaquil) in less than three minutes in order to win a prize. Competitors can use their own Pokémon for this.

Those who manage to win the competition win a book that details Sinnoh's backstory.
