Verity Lakefront (Japanese: シンジこのほとりShinji Lakefront) is one of the first areas that the player and his or her rival travel through in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. Notably, unlike the other lakefronts, it does not have any wild Pokémon of its own (although Lake Verity does), however, like them, it shares its theme with the route closest to it, Route 201.
The second time the player arrives at the Lake, he or she will have to stop Team Galactic from kidnapping one of the Mirage Pokémon, Mesprit.
Verity Lakefront is a very short area that is located just west of Route 201, and heads up to Lake Verity. In Pokémon Platinum, snow sometimes falls here, as many trees are partly covered in a thin layer of ice, while the ground can sometimes be seen with patches of snow.
There is also a small ledge that can be jumped off by traveling east on a portion of Route 201.
There is a sign by the front of the path to Lake Verity that says:
Lake Verity Ahead
According to legend, the lake is home
to the Pokémon said to be "The being of
It is because of this Pokémon that
people can experience sorrow and joy.
