Location
Orre Phenac City Map.png
Location of Phenac City in Orre.

Phenac City (Japanese: フェナスシティ Phenace City) is a small city built around a desert oasis in southeast Orre. The entire city is surrounded by a wall that keeps out the harsh desert winds. Most of the buildings within Phenac are built of stone. In the center of town there is a large, ornamental fountain that serves as both decoration and a rich display of Phenac's water supply. According to a resident in Phenac City, the mayor's grandfather, the first mayor and founder of the city, drew water to this formerly barren place.

The inhabitants of Phenac are generally good-natured folk; however, they are very suspicious of the citizens of Pyrite Town. Gossip about the criminals of Pyrite Town is always a popular topic, so people who announce that they come from Pyrite are met with suspicion.

The presence of the Pre Gym and Phenac Stadium has instilled a deep interest in Pokémon training amongst the residents of Phenac. Many Trainers prepare their Pokémon so that they can challenge Justy or compete in the nearest Colosseum.

The mayor's house is located to the west of the Pre Gym.

In Pokémon Colosseum, Bluno, Rosso, and Verde also appear here, blocking the three exits: the main entrance, the entrance close to Mayor Es Cade's house, and the one across Mayor Es Cade's entrance.

Places of interest

Discounting the Trainers found in the Colosseum's lobby, by the end of the game Phenac City has population of 34 in Colosseum.

Phenac Stadium

Main article: Phenac Stadium

In the very northern area of Phenac is Phenac Stadium, a giant dome-shaped Colosseum containing several gigantic waterfalls within its walls. The stadium was closed after Realgam Tower opened a short distance west of Phenac; however, some Trainers still come to the stadium's floor in search of battles. In Pokémon XD, the abandoned stadium was used by Cipher as a hideout during their attempt to take over Phenac City.

Pokémon Center

Main article: Pokémon Center

Phenac's Pokémon Center is notable in that its basement is home to the region's only trade machine. Here, Pokémon can be traded between Orre (Colosseum and XD), Kanto (Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen), and Hoenn (Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald). In the Japanese version, there is an e-Reader room in the basement; this room was made inaccessible in international releases.

Prestige Precept Gym

Main article: Prestige Precept Center

The Prestige Precept Center, known locally as the Pre Gym, is located in the north-central area of town. It is the closest equivalent to a Pokémon Gym in Orre. The first floor contains an instructing area as well as a Pokémon battle arena. The basement contains a series of simulated habitats (grassland, pond, rocks, and desert) ideal for training Pokémon to adapt to various areas.

The leader of the Center is Justy, also known as the Pregymleader.

Mayor's house

Located at the far west of town near the western gate, the Mayor's house is where Phenac's elected official works. In Colosseum, Mayor Es Cade is initially met here, though Miror B. and his peons later arrive to crash the house. In XD, Es Cade's replacement, Mayor Trest, can be met here, though he is initially missing.

All female peons will be disguised as Beauties, while the majority of male peons will be disguised as Casual Dudes. Exceptions include Forgs, who is masquerading as the Athlete usually seen running around the fountain, and Kapen, who is disguised as a Poké Mart shopkeeper.

Trivia

  • Besides having a similar sounding name to Phoenix, Arizona, the origin stories of Phenac and Phoenix are quite similar. Phenac was founded when the first mayor of the town (Mayor Es Cade's grandfather) drew water into the city, as mentioned by a resident in-game. Phoenix was founded when a man by the name of Jack Swilling had a series of canals built to bring water into the area. These canals followed an ancient Native American canal system, and the communities that sprung up along them were built on top of ruins of the same people. Eventually, the city came to be known as Phoenix, as it was a city born from the ruins of a former civilization.
  • During the Lucky Egg Quest in XD, it is necessary to speak to Dash, the athlete circling the water fountain. At one point, when he mentions his Castform, its name is misspelled as Castfrom.
