The Cove Area (Japanese: ポートエリア Port Area) is one of the areas in the game PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond. It is an area located along a coastline and watched over by its Area Keeper, Samurott.


Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.

The player first arrives at Seasong Beach after Piplup invites Pikachu to tag along. The pair then overhears Krokorok and Sandile talking about a fun new park called Wish Park. Piplup and Pikachu visit Wish Park, and Piplup gets left behind when Oshawott comes to save them. Oshawott then takes Pikachu to the Area Keeper, Samurott, who asks that Pikachu teams up with Oshawott during their investigation.

After learning of Krokorok and Sandile's whereabouts from Alomomola, Pikachu and Oshawott venture to Cove Town, but Timburr, who is blocking the path to Cove Town, requests them to go to the lighthouse to find his hammer for him first, because he needs it to fix the tunnel's overlook from collapsing. With that done, the duo reaches to Cove Town.

In Cove Town, Oshawott and Pikachu find Krokorok and Sandile and are challenged to a battle. Upon the duo's victory, Krokorok confesses everything to the duo: one day, Gothita came to Krokorok and Sandile for a favor, which is to take the Pokémon to Wish Park, in exchange for Berries. Krokorok then tells the duo how to open Wish Park's Poster Portal: they need many Pokémon friends to wish for the portal to open. After making enough friends, the duo works together with the friends they made to wish for the portal to open, allowing the duo to enter Wish Park again.

After bringing every Pokémon stuck in Wish Park's Cake Zone except Piplup back to the Cove Area, the duo returns to Seasong Beach to once again meet Samurott, who thanks the duo for their heroic actions and then tells them to head to the Arbor Area next to continue their investigation of Wish Park. He also tells the duo to ask Krookodile, the Gatekeeper in Cove Town, to open the Arbor Area gate for them.

When the duo meets Krookodile in Cove Town, he requests them to bring him Audino first, and then challenges them to a battle. With the two favors done, he then opens the Arbor Area gate for them and also teaches them how to call friends for help.
