Location of Lacunosa Town in Unova.

Lacunosa Town (Japanese: カゴメタウン Kagome Town) is a town in the northeastern area of the Unova region. To the west of Lacunosa Town is Route 12 and to the east is Route 13. To the northeast of Lacunosa Town lies the Giant Chasm, which is a location that has affected the residents of the town greatly for many years.

The Lacunosa legend

A long time ago, it is said that a large meteor came from the sky containing a terrifying monster. It was said that at night the monster would appear in the town along with the cold winds and take away humans and Pokémon to eat them. Eventually, the residents of the town surrounded Lacunosa Town in a wall to keep the monster out and a rule was then set on the town that forbade anyone from leaving at night and encouraged people to stay in their homes. Even though Lacunosa residents claim to no longer believe this old story, they still stay inside of their houses at night and the walls remain standing to this day.

Places of interest

Pokémon Center

Inside Lacunosa's Pokémon Center is a girlBW who will give the player a Gracidea if a fateful encounter Shaymin is shown to her.

The girl on the secondBW/firstB2W2 floor can tell the player what Pokémon were on their team at the time they earned a particular Gym Badge if the player agrees to show her that Badge.

Executive's house

The house on the northeastern part of the town's walls is home to a businessman. In Pokémon Black and White, due to business trips during the week, he only appears on Sunday nights. In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, he appears everyday. He gives the player one Berry from a range of Berries, some of which are not commonly found in Unova.


Pokémon Black, White, Black 2, and White 2

In the anime

Lacunosa Town stadium in the anime

Lacunosa Town appeared from Jostling for the Junior Cup! to Goodbye, Junior Cup - Hello Adventure! as the site for the Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup. Its main landmark seems to be the big stadium where the Junior Cup is held.

Ash, Iris, Cilan, and Dawn arrived in Lacunosa Town after spending some time training at Cynthia's villa in Undella Town. Also visiting the town to participate in the Junior Cup were Trip, Georgia, and Burgundy.

Besides the competing Trainers, the stadium was visited by Elite Four member Caitlin, who battled Cynthia in an exhibition match. Unova League Champion Alder also attended the event as a battle with him was one of the prizes promised to the winning Trainer.

  • Lacunosa Town is the only town in the known Pokémon world whose citizens' schedule changes dramatically based on the time of day.
  • In Black 2 and White 2, Professor Juniper directly mentions the possible origin of the name "Lacunosa," deriving the origin from lacunosus and describing the cloud type as a formation that resembles "a net or a fence," while relating that origin to the reason for the walls around Lacunosa Town, designed to keep Kyurem away.
