Places of interest

Roadside Motel

During the player's initial visit, Gladion is occupying the motel's room where he has apparently been living. After the player becomes the Champion, Gladion moves out and the woman at the reception desk will show the player a letter he had written to his mother. In Pokémon Sun and Moon only, Looker and Anabel occupy the motel's room after Gladion has left.

A Vending Machine is also located in the motel's reception area.

Pokémon Center Café

Main article: Pokémon Center Café

At the Pokémon Center Café, the owner will give the player two gifts the first time they buy a drink each day: an item and a dozen Poké Beans.

He will also give the player a Rare Candy if they have fed certain amounts of Poké Beans to their Pokémon.

Berry pile

The Berry pile can have two sizes: a small pile that yields three random Berries or a large pile that yields four to five Berries. The first Berry in a large pile is fixed. In large piles, the player will always find a high level Crabrawler hiding among the Berries that the player must defeat in order to collect them; small piles only occasionally have low level Crabrawler hiding among the Berries. The Berry pile regenerates daily.

Trivia

  • Based on the dialogue given, the Fossil Restoration Center could be a reference to the Jurassic Park movies. This is further supported by the fact that these movies were filmed in Hawaii, which Alola is based on.
