Location of Pokémon Network Center in Sevii Islands.
|Pokémon world locations|
The Pokémon Network Center (Japanese: ポケモンネットワークセンター Pokémon Network Center), or Pokémon Net Center for short, is a building in the town of One Island, and is only accessible in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen.
In addition to the standard features of a Pokémon Center, it contains the Network Machine, run by Celio, a good friend of Bill. It connects Kanto's, Hoenn's, and Orre's Pokémon Storage Systems, effectively allowing players to link with Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, Pokémon Colosseum, and Pokémon XD.
When it is first seen, it is not yet active, but after the player retrieves the Ruby and Sapphire from Mt. Ember and Rocket Warehouse, respectively, it begins to function. However, players must enter the Hall of Fame and obtain both the National Pokédex and the Rainbow Pass.
Its design is based on the Pokémon News Machine of the Pokémon Communication Center.
Three levels of communication are shown on the machine's display. The level shown depends on the progress of the player.
The second level is shown once Bill has helped Celio in One Island and grants access to the Pokémon Storage System as well as allowing communication with Kanto. More precisely, it is shown once the player has rescued Lostelle from the wild Hypno at Berry Forest on Three Island. When reached, the red, green and blue lights on the front of the machine will flash on and off.
The Pokémon Network Center is based on the Pokémon Communication Center of the Japanese version of Pokémon Crystal. Both facilities are expansions of regular Pokémon Centers which house similarly designed machines that extend communication functionality of their respective games; whereas the Pokémon Communication Center's Pokémon News Machine served as a rudimentary leaderboard for players, the Pokémon Network Center's Network Machine instead allows players to link with Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, Pokémon Colosseum, and Pokémon XD.
