A '''Pokémon Center''' (Japanese: '''{{j|ポケモンセンター}}''' ''Pokémon Center''), also shortened to '''PMC''' in [[Pokémon Sun and Moon]] or '''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 and {{gen|VII}}) 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]].
{{m|Fly}} brings the {{player}} to the Pokémon Center in the town or city chosen, and {{m|Teleport}} brings the player to the Pokémon Center they last visited (or to the Pokémon Center of the city or town they are currently in). Also, if defeated in battle, the player will appear at the Pokémon Center most recently visited (unless the player has not visited a Pokémon Center, in which case the player will appear outside his or her home).
