The S.S. Cussler before it sunk

The S.S. Cussler (Japanese: カッスラー号 Cussler) is an anime-exclusive location in Kalos that was featured in An Undersea Place to Call Home!. It is a sunken ship located just off Muraille Coast. It bears a Milotic emblem on its side.

The S.S. Cussler used to be a luxury liner until it hit an iceberg at night and sunk to the bottom of the ocean long ago. Although it sunk far off the coast of Kalos, due to sea currents the remains of the ship were carried close to Muraille Coast.

Years later, two Underwater Biologists named Eddy and Lindsey went searching for the remains of the S.S. Cussler to find out more about the sea currents that brought the ship to its current location. Before they started their exploration, they met up with Ash and his friends, who wanted to help out in finding the sunken ship. Ash and Serena accompanied Lindsey in a submarine, and not before long they found the ship at the bottom of the ocean. They discovered the Dragalge living in the area had merged many other ships carried there by sea currents together with the S.S. Cussler by using Acid. That way they created a gigantic building to live in together with other Pokémon.

Meanwhile, Team Rocket had created a hole in the S.S. Cussler and entered it with their Magikarp submarine in search for treasure. Ash, Serena and Lindsey found out about this and followed them inside. When Team Rocket tried to steal a vault located deep inside the ship by attaching rockets to it, the ship was heavily damaged and started to collapse. The Pokémon living in the area came together however and together with Ash, Serena and Lindsey they managed to stop the S.S. Cussler from collapsing.

Trivia

  • The story of the S.S. Cussler sinking after hitting an iceberg greatly resembles the story of RMS Titanic, a luxury liner that suffered the same fate in 1912. The outlook of the S.S. Cussler also greatly resembles Titanic's design.
