==Places of interest==
===Shady House===
{{main|Shady House}}
Shady House is the base of Team Skull, a dilapidated mansion at the far end of Po Town, where [[Guzma]] also stays from time to time.
===Pokémon Center===
TheAs player'sthe [[Pokémon Center]], like the rest of Po Town, is occupied by Team Skull, no operational [[Poké Mart]], [[Pokémon Center Café]], or [[PC]] can be healedfound there. A {{tc|Team Skull Grunt}} will, however, offer to heal the {{player}}'s Pokémon for {{pdollar}}10 whenever she's asked to. After the player has become {{pkmn|Champion}}, the Grunt, along with her cohort, will offer to sell them a [[Fashion item|Skull Tank]] and [[Fashion item|Team Skull Cap]]{{sup/7|USUM}}. If the player purchases the clothing, the two Grunts will leave the Pokémon Center, leaving it with no more functional use.

The population of Po Town is 23. Team Skull primarily inhabits the Shady House and the main road leading to it, with all other buildings being abandoned and inaccessible.

==In the anime==
[[File:Po Town anime.png|thumb|250px|Po Town in the {{pkmn|anime}}]]
Po Town first appeared in ''[[SM115|The Dealer of Destruction!]]'', where [[Team Skull]] watched a [[television]] broadcast of the press conference announcing the [[Alola League]] at the [[Shady House]].

===In the Pokémon Adventures manga===
Po Town debuted in ''[[PASM14|Flash and Cosmog's Secret]]''. [[Gladion]] traveled there after being made a [[Team Skull]] Enforcer by [[Guzma]]. Shortly after arriving, Gladion was attacked by [[Plumeria]] and a group of {{tc|Team Skull Grunt}}s, who wanted to see if he was skilled enough for the job. Though Gladion proved himself during the battle, his negative attitude angered Plumeria to the point where she refused to accept him as a true member of Team Skull. When Plumeria told Gladion to follow her, Gladion complied, but was momentarily distracted when a {{p|Zygarde}} [[List of Pokémon with form differences#Zygarde|Core]] jumped past him.
In [[PASM17]], [[Ilima]], [[Lana]], [[Kiawe]], [[Mallow]], [[Acerola]], and [[Hau]] arrived in Po Town to have a talk with Team Skull. Guzma, appearing on the [[Shady House]]'s balcony, seemed amused by the suggestion, and accepted the offer to talk, if the group could get into the house first. At that moment, the [[Trial Captain]]s and Hau found themselves surrounded by a group of [[Ultra Beast]]s.
The three beasts proceeded to easily best their opponents, but when Guzma noticed that the Captains' Pokémon were still hanging on, he revealed a {{p|Cosmog}} that he had in his possession and had it open more Ultra Wormholes to summon more beasts. The group was saved by Gladion, who used his {{TP|Gladion|Type: Null}} to fight the Ultra Beasts, which it did with ease due to its status as a Pokémon specifically created to fight them. Afterward, Guzma was kidnapped by a {{p|Nihilego}}, which dragged him into an Ultra Wormhole with it. The other beasts then broke out of Po Town's barrier, proceeding to cause havoc on the rest of Ula'ula.
While the Captains and Gladion headed out to help the people of Ula'ula and stop the Ultra Beasts, {{adv|Sun}} and {{adv|Moon}}, who had followed the Captains to Po Town, stayed behind to collect Zygarde Cells. The two were soon approached by [[Looker]] and {{FB|Salon Maiden|Anabel}} from the [[International Police]], who wanted to ask them questions regarding the Ultra Beasts. After they had agreed to pay Sun six million yen for his information, he told them everything about the Ultra Beasts he saw. Not much after Anabel had sent Looker out to identify and locate the Ultra Beasts, the three {{pkmn|Trainer}}s were attacked by a {{p|Blacephalon}}. Their attempt at {{pkmn2|caught|catching}} it failed, but they were saved by the appearance of {{p|Tapu Bulu}}, who {{m|Whirlwind|blew it away}}. While Sun completed his job of delivering a [[Mirage Berry]] to Tapu Bulu, Anabel thought about [[Colress|a certain man]] hiding somewhere in [[Alola]], who could be able to create [[Beast Ball|a Poké Ball capable of catching Ultra Beasts]].
* This is the only city or town in Alola where the background music doesn't change depending on the time of day.
* In [[Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon]], one of the Team Skull Grunts found here says that he's from [[Kalos]].
