The streets of Whitestone
Whitestone (Japanese: ホワイトタウン White Town) is an anime-exclusive town in Johto, located between Ecruteak City and Olivine City, which appeared in The Art of Pokémon.
Surrounded by mountains and bordering a giant lake, Whitestone is known for its white walls, which are said to resemble marble. However, they are in fact readily painted white to maintain a unique character, a practice maintained by citizens for generations.
Many of its buildings are terrace-style with wooden window shutters. It also has a church, which sits at the top of the hill Whitestone is built on. Whitestone is home to abstract artist Jack Pollockson and his trio of Smeargles.
