Floccesy Town (Japanese: サンギタウンSangi Town) is situated in the southwestern part of the Unovaregion. It is home to former Unova LeagueChampionAlder. The town used to be a grassy meadow, and was populated by people in search of Pokémon. The two eventually made homes, and started living together. The town may experience rain during spring and summer, and hail during winter.
Prophecy Flocks Here (Japanese: サンギは 易や 計算に 使う 木の棒Sangi are wooden rods used for divination and calculation.)

Old Clock Tower
It's an old clock tower...
A battered-looking clock tower is located right behind the Pokémon Center. It has a light purple roof and a bell. Vines are growing around the base of it. It is either missing the clock itself, or the hands of the clock. According to the map, the tower tells of the town's beginnings.
Floccesy Town is described as a town surrounded by natural beauty, and it is located between Aspertia City and the White Ruins.
Floccesy Town appeared in Team Plasma's Pokémon Power Plot!. On the way there, Ash and his friends were attacked by a group of wildAmoonguss, which, as they soon found out, were only some of the many wild mountain Pokémon that had attacked the town recently. Wanting to find the reason to all this, they decided to investigate an old, abandoned observatory on a nearby mountain. On the way there, they encountered Looker, who revealed that he was in Unova in order to investigate the actions of Team Plasma.
Sure enough, the group soon found out that Team Plasma was behind the mysterious Pokémon rampages. During the group's confrontation with Team Plasma, Team Rocket used one of their mini-drones to hack Colress's computer and steal his research data. Team Plasma promptly left the observatory and blew it up in their wake, destroying any evidence of their actions there. Afterwards, Ash and his friends continued their journey to the White Ruins, while Looker departed them to continue his investigations.
In the Japanese version, the girl near the clock tower gives the player the option to play the game in katakana instead of kanji. In the localized version, she instead asks the player if they're happy to be able to train Pokémon; the answer to this question does not affect the gameplay.
