Pokémon world locations

The Solaceon Ruins (Japanese: ズイの遺跡 Zui Ruins) is a location in Sinnoh. In the past during the region's time as Hisui, it is mapped under the Crimson Mirelands. In present-day Sinnoh, it is found east of Solaceon Town. It is home to the Unown in Sinnoh. If the player catches an Unown, then shows it to a boy in the town, the Seal corresponding to its letter will become available.

Geography

Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Brilliant Diamond, and Shining Pearl

The first room has a plaque/inscription in the Unown alphabet that indicates which exits to take to get to the last room. It reads:

Unown Text
TOPNone.pngRIGHT Top right
LOWERNone.pngLEFT Lower left
TOPNone.pngRIGHT Top right
TOPNone.pngLEFT Top left
TOPNone.pngLEFT Top left
LOWERNone.pngLEFT Lower left

The floor reached by taking the stairs in the upper-right section of the ruins’ entry level has only Unown of the "F" variety, the following area (reached by taking the lower-left staircase next) has "R," and so on (continuing in the order laid out by the inscription), spelling out the word "friend". The dead-end rooms (reached by not following the Unown alphabet instructions) house the other twenty varieties of Unown. The last room holds four items and an inscription written in Unown script. In Pokémon Platinum, one of the items is HM05 (Defog). The writing reads as follows:

Unown Text
FRIENDSHIP Friendship
ALLNone.pngLIVES All lives
TOUCHNone.pngOTHER touch other
LIVESNone.pngTONone.pngCREATE lives to create
SOMETHING something
ANEWNone.pngANDNone.pngALIVE anew and alive

The Japanese version of this writing is the same featured in Top-Down Training! and in Journey to the Unown!.

The room above the rest of the ruins, only accessible after the Ruin Maniac has finished digging the Maniac Tunnel through from Route 214 (which occurs after seeing 26 different forms of Unown), has both "!" and "?" varieties. The inscription in there reads:

Unown Text
?! ?!

Pokémon Legends: Arceus

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, the Solaceon Ruins are composed of one huge, bare room and is the site where the player first meets Warden Calaba. An inscription in the ruins interpreted as ancient wisdom reads:

All lives touch other lives to create something anew and alive

The player must recover the lost Wall Fragment from the Miss Fortune sisters to make the inscription readable.

Unown do not initially appear within the Solaceon Ruins. Once the player has collected all 28 Unown found across Hisui, wild Unown will begin appearing within the Solaceon Ruins.

In the anime

The Solaceon Ruins in the anime

The Solaceon Ruins appeared in Journey to the Unown!, where they were visited by Ash, Dawn, Brock, and Kenny. In this canon, the ruins are a temple dedicated to Dialga and Palkia rather than a simple cave, and statues of the Legendary Pokémon can be found in front of the temple. There is also a stone tablet that reads "When every life meets another life, something will be born" — a direct translation of the Japanese version of this writing instead of the English version that is used in the games.

After arriving in the ruins, Ash and Kenny decided to have a battle, but it had to be interrupted when the stairs Dawn was sitting on began to lift, causing Piplup and Aipom to tumble down the steps and Dawn to jump off to save her Pokémon. Seeing that, Ash, Brock, and Kenny rushed to rescue Dawn and everyone ended up inside the ruins, where they encountered several Unown. The Symbol Pokémon living there guarded a gold-colored cube that was stolen by Commander Saturn of Team Galactic.

Following the theft of the cube, Saturn ordered his Bronzor to use Confuse Ray on all of the Unown, leaving them confused and making them attack Team Rocket, as well as Ash and his friends. The group's Pokémon began attacking the Unown as well in order to defend themselves and their Trainers. Their attacks managed to snap the Unown out of their confusion and the Unown eventually calmed down, allowing Ash and the others to safely leave the ruins.

This is also the place where Dawn's Aipom evolved into Ambipom.

Pokémon Adventures

Diamond & Pearl chapter

The Solaceon Ruins appeared in Knowledge of the Unown I and Knowledge of the Unown II. Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum were led there by a pair of Unown that Platinum nicknamed Grumpy and Flaky, and helped to rescue their friends from a sealed room where they had gotten trapped in.

In Halting Honchkrow, Pearl discovered that Team Galactic detonating the Galactic Bomb at Lake Valor had caused the Solaceon Ruins to get connected with the Maniac Tunnel on Route 214.
