Debut Teaching The Student Teacher!

Neighborly Town (Japanese: トナリノタウン Tonarino Town) is an anime-exclusive location in Sinnoh. Like many other towns in the region, it is home to a Contest Hall. It was featured in Teaching the Student Teacher!.

Johanna was invited to join Mr. Contesta and Mr. Sukizo in the panel of judges for the town's Pokémon Contest because Nurse Joy was taking care of too many Pokémon and would not be able to attend.

Jessilina was among the several Coordinators participating in the Neighborly Contest, which was one of the seven remaining Pokémon Contests to be held before the Sinnoh Grand Festival as announced by Marian in Fighting Ire with Fire!. She made it all the way to the finals and was able to win the event, earning her fourth Ribbon with the help of her Seviper.
