Location of Floaroma Town in Sinnoh.

Floaroma Town (Japanese: ソノオタウン Sonoo Town) is a town in the Sinnoh region, known for its honey and vividly scented flowers that grow everywhere. It is the first area where Berries from non-player characters are available in Generation IV. Notable landmarks include the Pick a Peck of Colors Flower Shop in the middle of town, the Floaroma Meadow found to the north, and an anime-exclusive Contest Hall. In Pokémon Platinum, Floaroma Town has wooden arches at its entrances.


Vivid & Scented (Japanese: あざやかに はなかおる まち The town that smells vividly of flowers.)

History and tradition

According to the townspeople, Floaroma Town was once a barren and desolate hill. People started planting flowers around it to cheer up the place, but nothing would grow. Then, someone expressed thanks for a blessing of nature, and the whole hill burst into bloom. It is theorized that Shaymin was the cause of the sudden burst of flowers, given it being the Gratitude Pokémon, and its ability to "instantly transform ruined land into a lush field of flowers," according to its Pokédex entry.

The Pick a Peck of Colors Flower Shop offers players the game's first Berries, equipment needed for raising Berries, and a number of Accessories in exchange for Berries.

Floaroma Meadow

Main article: Floaroma Meadow

The Floaroma Meadow is an area accessed through the flowers in the northeast section of Floaroma Town proper, but still part of the town according to the Town Map. The first time the player visits Floaroma Town, the entrance to the meadow is blocked by two Team Galactic Grunts. After defeating one by the Valley Windworks, the player must return to defeat them and gain access to a Honey Tree, a man who sells honey, and the key to Valley Windworks.

A path in Floaroma Town leading to the meadow begins with a sign which reads:

Honey Available


Pokémon Diamond and Pearl

The population of Floaroma Town is 29, making it moderately populated for a small area. Apparently this is caused by the alluring aroma of the typical flowers and honey of the town. The majority of the townspeople are female.

Pokémon Platinum

The population of Floaroma Town is now 30.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

The population of Floaroma Town is now 31.

In the anime

Floaroma Town in the anime

In the anime, Floaroma Town was first mentioned in Wild in the Streets!, where Marian announced that a Pokémon Contest was scheduled to take place there. Ash and his friends first arrived in Floaroma Town in Oh Do You Know The Poffin Plan!, where they attended a Poffin-cooking class given by Forsythia at the Pick a Peck of Colors Flower Shop. Brock was a natural at making good Poffins, whereas Dawn took a little time to get the perfect recipe for her Pokémon. Ash, however, was completely unsuccessful and failed to produce high-quality Poffins.

The Floaroma Ribbon

Like several towns in the Sinnoh region, Floaroma Town is home to a Contest Hall. In Getting the Pre-Contest Titters!, Dawn, Kenny, Jessilina, and many other Pokémon Coordinators entered the Floaroma Town Pokémon Contest hoping to add the coveted Floaroma Ribbon to their collection.

In the Performance Stage, Dawn used her Pachirisu, Kenny used his Alakazam, and Jessilina used her Seviper. By showing the style and skill of their Pokémon in an appealing manner, the three of them were able to impress the panel of judges enough to advance to the Battle Stage, which took place in Settling a Not-So-Old Score!. In the end, Dawn emerged victorious, obtaining her first Contest Ribbon.

The town appeared again in Unlocking the Red Chain of Events!, where Forsythia was seen watering flowers together with her Roserade and Lotad. Ash and his friends stopped by Floaroma Town on their way to Sunyshore City for Ash's next Gym battle. They were shown inside the Pokémon Center, watching television as Marian announced that the next Pokémon Contest was slated to be held in Daybreak Town and would follow the Double Performance format.

Legend says Floaroma Town was once barren and without any kind of vegetation. One day, a beautiful woman went atop the hill and expressed gratitude, which resulted in flowers growing exponentially. In the present day, the town is covered in flowers. The abundance of greenery is a part of the town's architectural style; the streets feature many flower beds and both the Pokémon Center and the Contest Hall are decorated with flowers.

Pokémon Adventures

Diamond & Pearl arc

Floaroma Town briefly appeared in Honey For Combee. Platinum visited the Pick a Peck of Colors Flower Shop while Diamond and Pearl performed their manzai routine as an apology to a young girl whose Honey Diamond had eaten at Floaroma Meadow. When the little girl's father's Drifloon returned from Valley Windworks with his tattered work coat, the Pokédex holders decided to go check what was wrong.

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!

Floaroma Town appeared in The Mystery Boy, Jun!!, where Hareta and Mitsumi met Jun there. Jun challenged Hareta to a Pokémon battle, but when he found out that Hareta only had Piplup, he told him to go catch more Pokémon before they could battle. Hareta soon managed to catch himself a Shinx, but before he and Jun could battle, they heard of Team Galactic causing trouble at Valley Windworks, so they headed there to deal with them.


  • In the 2009 Pokémon annual, Floaroma Town is incorrectly spelled as "Floarama".
  • In Oh, Do You Know The Poffin Plan?, a story was told about a woman who made all of the flowers bloom, probably to avoid showing Shaymin, which was not revealed at that time. The NPCs in-game simply say it was a Pokémon.
  • There is a tiny section of Floaroma Town that sits between the northern entrance to the Floaroma Meadow and the river by Fuego Ironworks. There is no grass or items to be found though.
  • In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, due to the tweaking glitch, if the player rides 5 east, 1 south starting from the spot outside the house in the middle of the town, while on the bicycle's slow gear, the trees on the left of the town will be replaced with a black abyss.
