Eclipse Castle (Japanese: 日蝕城 Eclipse Castle) is an anime-exclusive location in Johto.

In the past, Sorin was the liege of Eclipse Castle. During the Eclipse Festival, Sorin was attacked by his younger brother Luno in an attempt to become the liege himself, only to fail when he lost to Sorin's Espeon and Umbreon. To celebrate their bravery, Sorin made a crest engraved in the castle honoring his two Pokémon.

In Night and Day, You are the Ones!, Ash, Goh, and Chloe visited Eclipse Castle in the hopes of seeing an Espeon and Umbreon. While there, Chloe met Sorin's descendant Soleil, who was set to become the new liege and who also happened to be her doppelgänger. Luno's descendant Ilunas was aiming to become the liege of Eclipse Castle instead and kidnapped Chloe, mistaking her for Soleil. As Soleil was about to become the new liege, Ilunas launched an attack, only to be stopped by Soleil and an escaped Chloe. In the end, Soleil and Ilunas settled their differences and Soleil replaced her grandmother Helia as the liege of Eclipse Castle.
