Grand Festival location?

Hearthome City may be home to Sinnoh's Grand Festival, just like Slateport City was home to the Hoenn Grand Festival, and the Indigo Plateau that in Kanto. My proposition: Hearthome City has the only accessible super Contest hall in the games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. We'll find out much later on in the Diamond & Pearl anime series.

Lilycove City is the Master Rank hall in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, and more importantly, the only hall in Pokémon Emerald. Nevertheless, the Hoenn Grand Festival was set in Slateport City simply because it was closest to Pacifidlog Town, where the last normal Contest had taken place.
Furthermore, by the time of the Sinnoh Grand Festival, Hearthome City will have already been revisited (for the Gym battle). For all of the above, there isn't any proper reason to suspect your guess is correct. --Unown Lord 10:17, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Is that a church?

That thing, is it named a "church" in other languages than English? It sure does look like one inside and outside, but the American version of the game just calls it "building" when you zoom in the map of this location. --Johans 17:10, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Well, I guess Nintendo DOES have to avoid religion. ("Being" of Willpower?) It definitely IS a cathedral though, no doubt about it...
Well, if it helps, Japanese PokémonWiki calls it a church (教会).--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 07:13, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, some other language calling it a church is what I needed to know. And especially Japanese. Thanks ^_^ --Johans 16:20, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
I found it pointless. 486TESH377TALK378FUN379 16:51, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
The official sources never refer to this building as Church. It's called Foreign Building in English version and いぶんかのたてもの (Foreign Culture Building) in Japanese Version. --Maxim 16:54, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
In the German version, it's called Begegnungsstätte (Place of Meetings). The word feels somewhat solemn, but maybe it's just because longer, more accurate translations would not fit the character limit. Helsionium 19:44, 3 March 2009 (UTC)


The article says there are prams throughout the city. What the heck is a pram??? - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 14:48, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

"baby carriage," 1884, shortening of perambulator (q.v.), perhaps influenced by pram "flat-bottomed boat" (1548), from O.N. pramr, from Balto-Slavic (cf. Pol. pram "boat," Rus. poromu "ferryboat").
Im sure there are baby carriages around the cityDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits))

Missed Item

There is a tiny mushroom that I found if you go to the west entrance of Amity Park, stop in front of the sign, take a right so that you are in between the fence and some trees, go up, and while you are facing north, there will be a hidden tiny mushroom in a tree. I found this in Pokemon Pearl game. I don't know if Platinum and Diamond have it or not. If someone else can confirm if it is in other games, please add it to the list of items! Thanks! - unsigned comment from TheBigSquirrel (talkcontribs)
