The Cold Storage (Japanese: 冷凍コンテナ Freezing Container) is a building in Pokémon Black and White found inside of an area of warehouses to the south of Driftveil City. After defeating Ghetsis, Zinzolin of the Seven Sages can be found and arrested here.

During the two year gap between Black and White and Black 2 and White 2, the facility was demolished to make room for the Pokémon World Tournament.

Geography

Despite being a series of buildings, only one of the Cold Storage warehouses can be entered. Inside this warehouse, some of the floors are frozen over, resulting in ice skating puzzles. There are multiple Workers inside the warehouse who will battle the player. In the back of the warehouse is a container, where Zinzolin is both first and last encountered.

Outside the warehouses, there are additional Trainers who can be battled, as well as some tall grass and a Vending Machine.

In the anime

The Cold Storage in the anime

The Cold Storage appeared in The Mighty Accelguard to the Rescue! where Dr. Ferrara, also known as Cryogonal Man, planned to steal the frozen treats to attract Pokémon. However, his plans were foiled by Ash and his friends, along with Charles and Linda.

In the manga

The Cold Storage in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Black and Cheren went to the Cold Storage in Fight in a Cold Climate, following a pair of Team Plasma Grunts who had stolen Cheren's Snivy. Thanks to the two's teamworks, Snivy was recovered, after which the two defeated the Grunts' two Beartic with their newly learned Grass PledgeFire Pledge combo. The Grunts were then ordered to retreat by Zinzolin.

In True Friends, Cheren revealed that he had later returned to the Cold Storage to learn more about Team Plasma's motives. At the Cold Storage, he had met Zinzolin, who had taken him to see how N awakened Zekrom. Upon seeing this, Cheren had chosen to start following Team Plasma's ideals.

Trivia

  • The in-game maps show the Cold Storage to be on the mainland of Unova. However, the facility is actually on an island.
  • If a Pokémon caught in the Cold Storage is traded to Black 2 and White 2, its status screen will say it was caught at the "PWT".
