The player's house lies in the middle of Nuvema Town and is where the player lives before beginning their journey. The player's mother lives here. The player, Cheren, and Bianca get their starter Pokémon from Professor Juniper here at the start of their journeys, and the latter two promptly challenge the player to a battle. There are two stories in the house, the first being a living room and kitchen area, and the second being the player's bedroom. The player's bedroom contains a Wii controlled with a Wii Remote, connected to a plasma TV given to the player by their father, and a PC, although this PC only includes information on "Pokémon Basics". After they have defeated Team Plasma, Looker meets the player here and gives them a Super Rod.
In Black 2 and White 2, Hilbert/Hilda's mother initially mistakes Nate/Rosa for her own child before correcting herself. She continues to heal the player's Pokémon as in Black and White, commenting on how she may want to go on a journey to find her child; however, she worries that they would return while she was gone. She does not refer to her child by their name, unless Memory Link has been established. The PC in the Hilbert/Hilda's room looks as if it has not been used in a long time.
Bianca's house is located in the southwest of the town. Bianca's parents live here. Upstairs is Bianca's room, which contains a bookshelf lined with Pokémon picture books, a shelf and two cabinets filled with goods, two plants, and a desk. The bed has pink covers and is on a turquoise rug. A window is on the back wall, with a desk in the bottom-right corner.
In Black and White, when the player first visits the house, Bianca's father is yelling at her for thinking of going on a journey by herself. Ultimately, however, Bianca goes on her journey anyway.
Cheren's house is located in the southeast of the town. Cheren's parents live here. Cheren's room has five shelves of books, a widescreen TV, a PC with information on how to play the game, a maroon rug in front of the television, and a bed with brown covers in the bottom-right. A sliding window is located above the staircase.
The PC states:
"Adventure Rule No. 1
"The X Button opens the menu!
"Adventure Rule No. 2
"Record your progress with SAVE.
"There is nothing else on here..."
Juniper Pokémon Lab
Professor Juniper's lab in the anime
Professor Juniper's lab lies in the northwest of the town. When the player first starts their journey, Cheren and Bianca are waiting for the player outside. When the trio enter the lab, Professor Juniper is waiting for them. She lets the player nickname their starter Pokémon before giving them a Pokédex. When spoken to, Professor Juniper asks to see the player's Pokédex and counts the number of Pokémon they have seen in the Unova Pokédex; she will give three different prizes throughout the game based on the number. Cedric Juniper can be found here after the player has entered the Hall of Fame, providing a count of Pokémon registered in the National Pokédex. After the tutorial on how to catch Pokémon, the Patrat Professor Juniper caught can be seen wandering around the lab. In Black 2 and White 2, Cinccino and Watchog are seen instead in the lab.
Nuvema Town first appeared in Fussing and Fighting, where Professor Juniper prepared to give the three starter Pokémon she had to new Trainers. The package containing the starter Pokémon and three Pokédexes was obtained by Black in Choices. From the three starters, he chose Tepig, while his childhood friends Cheren and Bianca chose Snivy and Oshawott, respectively. However, after Black had left, it turned out that him accidentally dropping the package to the ground earlier had left Cheren and Bianca's Pokédexes inoperable, leaving Black with the only functioning one. As such, they left them with Professor Juniper to be repaired before heading after Black.
