A '''Pokémon Center''' (Japanese: '''{{j|ポケモンセンター}}''' ''Pokémon Center''), also shortened to '''Pokécen''' or '''Pokésen''' (Japanese: '''{{j|ポケセン}}''') in Japan, is a type of building that provides regulatory services for {{pkmn|Trainer|Pokémon Trainers}}. Pokémon Centers are found in most towns and cities of the {{pkmn|world|Pokémon world}}; every major city or town holds a Pokémon Center. Some Pokémon Centers can be found outside of towns next to large [[forest]]s or [[cave]]s. Pokémon Centers are built where many Trainers gather and the area becomes popular. This is to accommodate those Trainers in need and serve as a resting spot. The most common service the Pokémon Center offers is healing {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} free of charge.
In the {{pkmn|games}}, Pokémon Centers consist of a healing station run by a [[Pokémon Center Nurse]], a [[Trade|trading]] connection club, a {{pkmn|battle|battling}} connection club (neither of which require wired connections as of {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}), and various [[Non-player character|NPCs]] that vary upon location (in rural areas, no NPCs may be present). As of [[Generation V]], salesmen from the [[Poké Mart]] and the deliveryman (in Generation V) or delivery girl (in [[Generation VI]]) appear when the [[Mystery Gift]] function is activated, due to its integration with the Pokémon Center. Mr. Medal also appears here in {{game|Black and White|s 2|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2}} when awarding the player any [[List of Medals in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2|Medals]]. The connection clubs are absent in [[Generation VI]] and are replaced with the [[Player Search System]].
