Celestic Town (Japanese: カンナギタウン Kannagi Town) is a town in the Sinnoh region. It is a tiny town that preserves the history of Sinnoh and the old ways of life. The center of town has a small shrine that dates back to ancient times. It is one of the smallest towns in the entire region. It is also one of the oldest, and some say the town has been there since Sinnoh was created. It is the hometown of Cynthia's family and of Kalos Elite Four member Drasna's grandparents.

Slogan

The Past Lives (Japanese: むかしを つたえる まち A town that conveys the past.)

Places of interest

Cynthia's family's house

After Team Galactic is defeated at Mt. Coronet, the player can come here to see a picture of the mascot for their game's counterpart version (Dialga for Pearl and Palkia for Diamond) to add to the Pokédex, a requirement to obtain the National Pokédex in those games. In Pokémon Platinum, both Pokémon can be encountered in the wild.

Celestic Ruins

 
The interior of the Celestic Ruins

Inside a cave, in the center of the town, are etchings telling the legend of Azelf, Mesprit, and Uxie. However, in the anime, it was shown to be like actual ruins, with pillars and a temple-like structure. Found inside is a fresco involving the lake guardians.

In Pokémon Platinum, an event is unlocked here after the Stark Mountain storyline is completed. When the painting at the rear of the ruins is examined, Cynthia will appear and give her theory to the painting's meaning.

An identical fresco can be found in Mt. Coronet, blocking the path to the Spear Pillar. It is destroyed by Team Galactic after the player has freed the lake guardians at their HQ.

Demographics

Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum

The population of Celestic Town is 22, making it the third least populous town in the Sinnoh region. Most of Cynthia's family lives here.

Shop

There is no Poké Mart in the town, so an elderly couple run a shop out of their house in the northwest of the town.

In the anime

 
Celestic Town in the anime

In the anime, Celestic Town is the hometown of the Sinnoh League Champion Cynthia; her grandmother and the head of the Celestic Town Historical Research Center Professor Carolina; and Lila, a famous Pokémon Stylist and a former Pokémon Coordinator who is also known as the "Tiger Lily of Celestic Town".

In Top-Down Training!, Sinnoh Now reported that the Lustrous Orb, an item related to the Legendary Pokémon Palkia, was uncovered by archaeologists at the Celestic Ruins.

Ash, Dawn, and Brock arrived in Celestic in Battling The Generation Gap!. Dawn was eager to visit Lila's fashion store and meet the woman who broke her mother's winning streak. Ash, however, was with his mind set on finding a way to counter Fantina's Pokémon's Hypnosis and decided to train for his upcoming Gym battle instead. When Dawn and Brock arrived at the store, the receptionist told them that Lila wasn't there and would spend the whole day off, much to Dawn's disappointment.

 
The Celestic Ribbon

Later, at the Contest Hall, Dawn discovered that Lila took the day off to compete in the Celestic Contest. In the Performance Stage, Lila impressed the Contest Judges by showing off the unique characteristics of her Cherrim. Dawn also did a good job in the round, having Buneary creating an ice sculpture to slide on. Jessilina, however, failed to make the cut and was knocked out of the competition. In the Battle Stage, Dawn and Lila both defeated their first two opponents and reached the finals. Dawn had some problems at the beginning as Lila's Delcatty's Sing and Cute Charm were preventing her Ambipom from battling properly, but in the end she managed to defeat her mother's childhood rival and win the coveted Celestic Ribbon, her third Contest Ribbon overall. After the Celestic Contest, Lila took the group to her store and allowed them to pick out outfits and Accessories free of charge.

Ash and his friends visited the town's research center in Losing Its Lustrous!, where they, together with Cynthia, her grandmother, and Officer Jenny's police officers, tried to stop Team Galactic from stealing the Lustrous Orb. However, they were unsuccessful, and in Double Team Turnover!, the villainous team left the town with two of the timespace orbs in their possession.

Diamond & Pearl chapter

Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, and Cynthia's grandmother arrived in Celestic Town in Problematic Probopass and Mad Magnezone I. During their stay, they encountered Cyrus, who wanted to enter the Celestic Ruins to take photos of the murals depicting Azelf, Uxie, and Mesprit. He succeeded getting into the ruins and taking the photos, but Diamond and Pearl managed to steal and destroy his camera before he left.

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!

Mitsumi and Hareta visit Celestic Town in Dialga's Secret Keys to learn more about Dialga and to deliver the Old Charm to Cynthia's grandmother, the town elder. They find her arguing with Team Galactic's B-2, who has also come to investigate. When B-2 gets fed up with her stubbornness, he starts the countdown on a bomb planted in the ruins out of spite. Hareta and his Piplup manage to keep the explosion from harming the town and its surroundings, and the Old Charm is successfully delivered. As thanks, the elder tells Hareta and Mitsumi about Azelf, Mesprit and Uxie, as well as their connection to Dialga. They are then interrupted by Cyrus, who had been eavesdropping along with Jupiter and Saturn, and Mitsumi informs Hareta that Cyrus leads Team Galactic.

In Team Galactic's Conspiracy, Revealed!!, Cyrus informs Hareta and Mitsumi of his plan to take Dialga's power before leaving town, and Mitsumi challenges Jupiter and Saturn so that Hareta can pursue him. Her battle's ending is seen in the beginning of Challenge! The Fortress of Steel!!, in which Jun and Professor Rowan arrive to help, only for Jupiter and Saturn to withdraw.

Trivia

  • Celestic Town's music is the same as Eterna City's, which is a neighboring town of Celestic.
  • The shrine in the middle of town bears a striking resemblance to the shrine found in Ilex Forest, Johto in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.
  • In the games, there are no televisions in this town.
  • If an Action Replay is used, and the player tries to move into the center pit of the town, the game will crash.
