Anville Town (Japanese: カナワタウンKanawa Town) is situated in the northwestern part of the Unova region. It is accessed by riding the Battle Subway's Anville line (shown brown on the subway map) from Gear Station in Nimbasa City; no battles are required to be able to go to this town. On the weekends, some Trainers come to this town to exchange items.
Rolling Out the Steel Rails (Japanese: カナワとは交差する鉄の輪Kanawa refers to intersecting iron rings.)
In Black 2 and White 2, the School Kid standing near the entrance has lost her Pansage. Her Pansage is being kept by a Depot Agent in front of the Musical Theater in Nimbasa City. If the player talks to the Depot Agent after finding out about the lost Pansage, he will return it. When the player returns to Anville Town and talks to the girl, who now has her Pokémon back, she will give the player a BrightPowder and say that a green-haired guy (implied to be N) told her that her Pansage's dream is to become a railroad conductor.
Places of interest
A Depot Agent handing out lost-and-found items lives in the southeastern house. When the player first talks to him, he will give the player a Rare Candy. After that, he will acquire a new item if the player wins seven consecutive battles on the Battle Subway. So long as he has an item, further streaks of seven will increase the number of that item that he will give the player when they talk to him, up to a maximum of ten.
Anville Town is known for its connection with locomotives, and every day a different train engine can be found on the turntable in front of the town's roundhouse, most of them a part of the Battle Subway system of trains. A Worker on the bridge will explain their origins, inner-workings, and/or capabilities.
Today's train car is a Hyperspeed Train! It runs faster than a rocket! It runs quieter than an air conditioner! I can see! I can see it! That lovely smooth curve! Ah, I wish I could reach out and touch it! I can see it so clearly! But I cannot touch the Hyperspeed Train! It really is hyper technology! As you can see, we engineers are always seriously dreaming that someday the dream will become a reality!
This is a Single Train! It's the oldest train in the Battle Subway. It's for a loop line to go around the Unova region! Do you know Tubeline Bridge? The train that runs on it is this Single Train.
This Super Single Train is a new mass-produced car! It's an environmentally friendly train, because they revised all the parts to drastically reduce power consumption! Newer trains have to be built in a way that's both functional and environmentally friendly. Compared to the past, they've improved significantly.
This car is a Double Train! This is a mass-produced car from a decade ago! Compared to a Single Train, the number of parts was reduced so it could be built for a lower cost. The number of parts influences the budget and construction time. The streamlined and beautiful design of the Double Train is still valued today.
This Super Double Train is a new mass-produced car! Such a streamlined and refined design! Beauty and utility working together! That kind of beautility is unique to mass-produced train cars! It uses the same train car as a Super Single Train. The only difference is the appearance. It is a superb train car that will go down in the history of the Battle Subway!
This car is a Multi Train! Few cars of this model were produced. This is a test car to develop future mass-produced cars that will replace the old Double Trains. The technology born during the creation of this train car made the Super Single Train and Super Double Train possible!
This train car is a Super Multi Train! This is the latest train car! Improved acceleration and deceleration! Automated train-car controls! It's full of cutting-edge technologies. Also, a regeneration brake system, a car-body tilting system, a whatchamacallit system, a thingamabob system... I don't remember all the details, but it's just a big festival of all the latest technology!
This train car is a Wi-Fi Train! It is the fastest long-distance high-speed train in the Battle Subway! This is called a pendulum car. Its body tilts while going around curves, so it can run without slowing down! Faster! Farther! Our engineers' spirits are infused in it!
As you know, this is a local train to Anville Town! Isn't it just so cute? This one is a little slow and heavy. When it runs, the whole train sways. The train car is the same model as a Single Train. Because it is an old train car, I hear the maintenance is hard, but it's the one I always ride, because I loved it as a kid!
This train car is the kind that ran a long time ago. Compared to contemporary train cars, it has more parts, so I heard it was difficult to build. The old train cars built with lots of small parts have their own unique beauty and attract a lot of fans. Those cars no longer run in the Battle Subway, but I hear they're still used in a faraway region. Ah... I'd love to be on that train!
This train car is a new train to run in the future! Wooo! Cool! Super cool! The latest motor breathes fire! Uh-oh, if it really breathed fire, that would be bad! But it is full of the latest technologies! It's undergoing a lot of testing. It's called a gauge-convertible train. It's a sweet car that can adjust its wheels to run on any rail!
Every Saturday and Sunday, except on days when the Worker talks about the Hyperspeed Train, traders are present in town, who ask to trade their items for items in the player's Bag.

A flute track will be added to the background theme if the player is near a flautist playing on the bridge overlooking the turntable. When trying to talk to the flautist, instead of dialog, a message saying, "A beautiful tune is spreading throughout the town..." will be displayed. She is there every day of the week.
During the Battle Subway trial, White reached Anville Town. One of the Subway Bosses, Ingo, prevented White from leaving the train until she battled him. The battle ended in a draw, and Ingo was satisfied with White's progress. White heard a pleasant tune, then saw Bianca on the bridge over the station, who was playing the flute. White found out why Bianca ended up at the faraway town, and helped cheer her up.
Anville Town is the first city or town in the Pokémon world to not be physically connected to another location by a route or cave, yet is not an island.
It is also impossible to use Fly to access this town, being the first to do so. It can be only accessed by the Battle Subway Brown Line.
It is also the first of two settlements not to be represented by a city or town icon on the map, instead being represented by a generic location icon. The other is the Village Bridge, which does not have any icon.
