The Meeting Place (Japanese: つどいのひろば The Meeting Plaza) is an area in PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure that connects all of the zones together. It is located in the center of the PokéPark and features a large tree complete with a tree house that increases in size throughout the story, and two stalls housing Misdreavus's photo store and Drifblim's transportation service.
In the final cutscene, Teddiursa is seen walking along and spots Pikachu's balloon and runs to tell the others. Pikachu lands with Chikorita, Piplup, Charmander and Mew, and the Pokémon at the Meeting Place congratulate them. A party is also held there, where Charmander's fireworks are finally shown, with all the Pokémon looking at them.
Here the player receives a camera from Misdreavus with which they can take photos using the - button on their Wii controller. If the player owns an SD card, they may transfer photos they have taken onto it so they may place the photos on their computer.
Here the player is introduced to Drifblim who will provide the player with transportation to and between zones for a fee of 20 berries (discounts to 10 berries once Drifblim is befriended and later made free after continued usage). In order to make a zone accessible through Drifblim's transportation the player must find a sign referred to as a Drifblim Stop located somewhere within each zone. The only one that does not have to be initially discovered is the one in the Meadow Zone as Drifblim explains that there is already a Drifblim there.

A series of Pokémon appear in the Meeting Place willing to train Pikachu's abilities for a fee. The cost for each lesson increases each time.
Ponyta becomes available after completing Pelipper's Daring Dash for the first time. He trains Pikachu's Dash making him faster and, once the player gains access to the Lava Zone, enables him to perform a Double Dash, a much faster dash that is performed as an initial dash begins to slow down.
Despite many Pokémon being present in the Meeting Place, almost none of them can be befriended outside their zone. The following are the few that can.
|Burmy||In the tree house||None||Is befriended automatically after speaking to him.|
|Mime Jr.||In the tree house||None||Is befriended automatically after speaking to him.|
|Drifblim||Next to the tree house||None||Is befriended automatically after using him to travel three times.|
These Pokémon make an appearance in the Meeting Place but cannot be befriended there by any means.
