Location of Alfornada in Paldea.

Places of interest

Alfornada Gym

Main article: Alfornada Gym

The Alfornada Gym is the official Gym of Alfornada. The Gym Leader is Tulip, who specializes in Psychic-type Pokémon.

Alfornada Pokémon Center

A Pokémon League representative at this Pokémon Center asks the player to defeat seven Pokémon Trainers in South Province (Area Six) for a TM.

Emotional Spectrum Practice

Emotional Spectrum Practice, or ESP for short, is an exercise activity formulated by Tulip to help one become more beautiful. ESP regimens are taught by Dendra at the eastern side of town at the base of the observatory. The player must participate in two ESP sessions, featuring 10 and 15 rounds respectively under standard mode rules, as part of the Alfornada Gym Test. In subsequent visits, Dendra will continue to offer ESP sessions, in two different modes: Standard and Knockout.

During an ESP session, Dendra will prompt the player to press either the X, A, B, or Y button before a short timer expires. Each button corresponds to a color-coded emotion that the player must mimic, and it is possible for the same emotion to be chosen multiple times in a row. If the correct emotion is given, the timer will pause briefly, and the current round will be marked as a success even if the player later switches to a different emotion. No penalty is given for expressing the wrong emotion, and the timer will keep running while still allowing the player to switch to the correct emotion. It is possible to input the correct emotion multiple times in the same round, but this does not provide any additional points.

Standard mode offers four different courses of increasing difficulty (more rounds and a shorter timer per round): Nice 'n' easy, Moderate, Vigorous, and All-out. This mode will end in failure if at any point the player has accumulated seven more unsuccessful rounds than they have successful rounds, and no reward will be given in this case. If the player reaches the end of the session without having too many unsuccessful rounds, they will receive various Berries as a reward.

Course Rounds Successful rounds
required to finish
Time per round Reward
Nice 'n' easy 15 5 3.0 seconds 3 copies of one random Berry:
Moderate 20 7 2.3 seconds 3 copies of one random Berry:
Vigorous 30 12 1.6 seconds 3 copies of one random Berry:
All-out 40 17 1.2 seconds Same as Vigorous, plus one:

In Knockout mode, a single unsuccessful round at any time will end the session. Dendra will continue for a maximum of 151 prompts, divided into phases of increasing speed. After each phase, there is an opportunity to rest, in which the game will not proceed to the next phase until the player presses any button.

Phase Rounds
(cumulative)
Time per round Consolation prize for
failure during this phase
Phase 1 10 3.0 seconds None
Phase 2 15 (25) 2.3 seconds One copy of a random Berry:
Phase 3 20 (45) 2.0 seconds 3 copies of a random one of
the six Berry types above
Phase 4 25 (70) 1.3 seconds 5 copies each of two random
Berry types from above
Phase 5 81 (151) 1.0 seconds 10 copies each of two random
Berry types from above

Completing all 151 rounds causes the player to be rewarded with "an assortment of Berries"; this consists of 10 copies of each of the six Berry types that can be given as consolation prizes, plus one   Starf Berry.

Trivia

  • The battle court features all the menu sprites from the Generation I games along the outside of the building and the sidewalk, except for Pikachu's sprite from Pokémon Yellow.
  • The theme that plays in this location, "ベイクタウン / Alfornada", is a subtle remix of the overworld theme used within the Southern Province, and is programmed to dynamically interact with the other Southern Province themes.
