Like many other settlements in the Pokémon world, Montenevera has a Pokémon Gym, headed by Ryme, who specializes in Ghost-type Pokémon and hands out the Ghost Badge to students who defeat her. It is one of two gyms on Glaseado Mountain, the other being the Glaseado Gym located next to a nearby ski slope.
The Montenevera Gym is the official Gym of Montenevera. The Gym Leader is Ryme, who specializes in Ghost-type Pokémon. Montenevera's battle court is located just outside of the Gym building, and doubles as a stage where Ryme holds her concerts.
Next to the Pokémon Center, a man with an Abomasnow can Hyper Train the player's Pokémon (if they are above level 50) in exchange for a Bottle Cap or Gold Bottle Cap. This will max out that Pokémon's chosen IV (if using a Bottle Cap) or all of the chosen Pokémon's IVs (if using a Gold Bottle Cap).
Out of all of the cities and towns in Paldea that contain a Gym, Montenevera is the only one where people are not seen standing or walking around with Pokémon of the type specialized in said Gym (in this case, Ghost-type Pokémon). Instead, they're accompanied by Ice-type Pokémon. Ghost-type Pokémon can only be found in the Gym building.
The entrance arches to Montenevera resemble Lampent.
Additionally, the many candles scattered throughout the town reference Litwick or Greavard.
Montenevera seems to have many of its buildings take on the appearance of baserri, traditional half-timbered farmhouses found in the Basque Country. It may be geographically inspired by cities such as Burgos and Valladolid, as well as Ezcaray, a town that shares similar buildings to Montenevera, and is known for its mountains and a ski resort.
