Celestic Town (Japanese: カンナギタウンKannagi Town) is a town in the region of Sinnoh. 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 KalosElite Four member Drasna's grandparents.
The Past Lives (Japanese: むかしを つたえる まちA town that conveys the past.)
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.
Cynthia: This cave painting... It's always been described this way. The light in the center represents either DIALGA or PALKIA appearing at the Spear Pillar. The three lights around it were thought to be UXIE, MESPRIT, and AZELF.
May I continue?
But, then, I realized that there may be another way of interpreting this. Could this triangle of lights actually represent a different trio? Could they be DIALGA, PALKIA, and GIRATINA instead? And the large light at their center. Does it represent something else? Could it be what created this world of ours?
May I continue for a little bit longer?
Thank you for listening to my theory. Do you know of the ancient Plates they find all over Sinnoh? One of them had this engraved on it. "Two beings of time and space set free from the Original One." I think this quote, too, points to the presence of another Pokémon. A Pokémon even more powerful than DIALGA or PALKIA. Does that sound plausible to you?I'm not quite sure how GIRATINA fits into this scheme of things, but... It's said that in the Distortion World, neither time nor space were stable. I think that tells us something about GIRATINA, the only Pokémon there. It must have been as powerful as DIALGA and PALKIA, the rulers of time and space. In some way, though, GIRATINA has to have a power opposite of theirs.
I'm sorry this is so long. May I say one last bit?
A long time ago, I wonder what sort of person painted this? DIALGA's Roar of Time... PALKIA's Spacial Rend... To the people back then, those Pokémon really must have appeared to rule over time and space. Seeing them must have shaken the people to their very core. This painting represents those feelings of awe, wonder, and everything else. It passed that memory to countless people, eventually becoming a myth... That's what I believe as a researcher of myths.
I think I let myself get carried away and talked for far too long. I'm sorry, and thank you. Let's meet again.
Cynthia then leaves the cave and ends the event.
If the player responds with "no" when Cynthia asks if she can continue, she will respond with:
I'm so sorry. I let myself get carried away...
Cynthia then leaves the cave and ends the event.
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.
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.
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 Gymbattle 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.

Mitsumi and Hareta visited 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.
