Location of Motostoke in Galar.

Motostoke (Japanese: エンジンシティ Engine City) is a city situated in the central south of the Galar region.

Slogan

An industrial city studded with steam-powered marvels of modern engineering. (Japanese: 蒸気機関を 利用して 近代化を とげた 工業都市 An industrial city that was modernized using the steam engine.)

Geography

The city is roughly shaped like the perimeter of a square. The Wild Area exit is south of the bottom right corner, and the Route 3 and Motostoke Outskirts exits are west and east of the top two corners. Several smaller offshoots lead to items or points of interest.

Vertically, the city also consists of a lower and upper tier, but there is little overlap between the tiers. The lower tier consists of the right and bottom "sides" of the square plus half of the left side, while the upper tier consists of the top side of the square plus half of the left side. Two lifts are present to take the player between the tiers.

In terms of points of interest, the two Pokémon Centers are at the bottom right and top left, Motostoke Stadium is at the top right, the Uniform Shop is at the bottom left, the Budew Drop Inn is at the top middle, and Motostoke Station is at the left middle just before the upper tier ends. The main road consists of the whole right side of the square.

Role

When the player first enters Motostoke, they must largely stick to the main road and cannot leave by one of the northern exits. The way to the Uniform Shop to the left is blocked by a group of NPCs, the path left of Motostoke Stadium is blocked by a group of fans excited for the upcoming Gym Challenge opening ceremony, the Route 3 exit is blocked by a League staff member, and the Motostoke Outskirts exit is blocked by a tired Flying Taxi Corviknight. This requires the player to enter Motostoke Stadium.

The player and Hop sign up for the Gym Challenge and the player picks their uniform number; they are then informed to book a room at the Budew Drop Inn in preparation for the opening ceremony tomorrow. (Upon exiting the stadium and upon approaching the front of the inn, two very brief scenes play where a League staff member shows the player the direction of the inn. After this second scene, NPCs no longer block any part of Motostoke and the whole city becomes accessible. The Wooloo at the Wild Area Station also no longer block the train tracks at this time.)

The inn's check-in desk is blocked by Team Yell Grunts; talking to any Grunt will have the team offer a battle, which the player may accept or temporarily decline. After all four have been defeated, talking to the receptionist will play a cutscene that automatically progresses to the next morning. (The player's team is healed overnight.)

Upon leaving the inn, a League staff member will offer to escort/warp the player in front of Motostoke Stadium, though the player can decline. After talking to the front desk League staff inside the stadium, the player will automatically change into their uniform; the opening ceremony will then play out. (The entirety of the ceremony is skipped if the player has turned on Skip Movies in the Options.) The player can now head west for Route 3 after a battle with Hop near the exit.

After meeting Kabu in Galar Mine No. 2



In the anime

Motostoke was mentioned in JN100, where Ash planned to take a train there from Wyndon to meet up with Goh at the Motostoke Riverbank, but he was distracted by the prospect of watching Leon's latest battle at the Wyndon Stadium before he could do that.

In the manga

 
Motostoke in Pokémon Adventures

Pokémon Adventures

Sword & Shield chapter

Motostoke first appeared in Crackle!! Practice Battle. A televised program was featured live from there, but the guest star, Leon, was late. As it turned out, Leon had gotten lost in the city while trying to find his way to the TV studio.

The city reappeared in Ooh Shiny!! Legendary Equipment, where Henry and Casey registered for the Gym Challenge at the Motostoke Stadium and visited the Budew Drop Inn, where they met Sonia, before departing to Turffield in Watch Out!! Strong Rivals.

Henry and Casey returned to Motostoke in PASS11 for their Gym battle against Kabu. After defeating him, they departed to Hammerlocke in the next round.

Trivia

  • Motostoke is based on Manchester.[1]
  • The two elevators in the Budew Drop Inn are the only[citation needed] doors in the game that the player must press A on to enter. The player can also interact with the elevator buttons a few steps away from the doors, which behaves identically.
