'''Po Town''' (Japanese: '''ポータウン''' ''Pō Town'') is a town situated on [[Ula'ula Island]] of the [[Alola]] [[region]]. It is occupied by [[Team Skull]] and houses their base of operations, the [[Shady House]].
==Places of interest==
===Pokémon Center===
As the [[Pokémon Center]], like the rest of Po Town, is occupied by Team Skull, no operational [[Poké Mart]], [[Pokémon Center Café]], or [[PC]] can be found 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 [[TrainerFashion customizationitem|Skull Tank]] forand [[Fashion item|Team Skull Cap]]{{pdollarsup/7|USUM}}10,000. If the player purchases the tank topclothing, the two Grunts will leave the Pokémon Center, leaving it with no more functional use.

==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]] prior to [[Guzma]]'s arrival.
==In the manga==

===In the Pokémon Adventures manga===
Po Town debuted in the {{chap|Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon}}. [[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.
Later, [[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}} 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.
* 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]].
