A Pokémon academy is a school where students and Trainers can learn more about Pokémon. Most beginning Trainers visit at least one of them, and common Trainers who study extensively at these locations are Lasses, School Kids, and Scientists. The blackboard at the back of the school details the five non-volatile status conditions. In Pokémon Black and White, Cheren visits here to improve his knowledge while waiting for the Gym to open.
Fennel and Amanita's house
Fennel and Amanita live together in the house in the northern entrance of the easternmost building in Striaton City. They share a room on the top floor, which cannot be accessed until defeating the Striaton Gym. Fennel gives the playerHM01 (Cut) as a reward for defeating the Gym Leader. Amanita introduces herself as the creator of the UnovaPokémon Storage System, then explains the Battle Box. After speaking with her, the "Someone's PC" becomes "Amanita's PC".
In Black 2 and White 2, due to Fennel and Amanita moving to Castelia City, they are absent. Instead, a woman, a man, a Herdier, and an Up-Grade are found. The man names all of the Pokémon Storage System admins, and the woman states that the C-Gear's current version is version 3.0.
The Striaton Gym is the official Gym of Striaton City. It is based on Fire-type, Water-type, and Grass-type Pokémon. The Gym Leaders are Chili, Cress, and Cilan. The Striaton City Gym is a Gym consisting of a puzzle by stepping on an element pad that defeats the element showcased on a curtain. For defeating one Gym Leader, Trainers receive the Trio Badge, TM83 (Work Up), and the ability to use Cut outside of battle.
Striaton City is host to the first Gym the player can challenge. Uniquely, this Gym has three brothers for Gym Leaders, and the Gym Leader faced by the player is determined by the starter the player chooses. If the player chooses Snivy, the player will face Chili and his Pansear. If the player chooses Tepig, the player will face Cress and his Panpour. If the player chooses Oshawott, the player will face Cilan and his Pansage.
Making its appearance in Black 2 and White 2, the Striaton Restaurant is the former Gym of Striaton City. The player can watch a Pansage, Pansear, or Panpour show, with the prize being a Big Mushroom if the correct Pokémon is chosen. It is a spiritual successor to the Patrat show found at Marvelous Bridge in Black and White. Every day, the player can team up with one of the three brothers and battle the other two in a Multi Battle. They all have three Pokémon each and use different Pokémon than the ones they did in Pokémon Black and White.
Pokémon Black and White
46 people reside in Striaton City. This ranks Striaton City as one of the biggest cities in Unova.
Pokémon Black 2 and White 2
Striaton City's population increases to 51.
In Black 2 and White 2, the upper cashier's whole stock is always available since the player can only visit Striaton City after entering the Hall of Fame.
In Dreams by the Yard Full!, Team Rocket's investigation at the Dreamyard caused Dream Mist to fall over Striaton City, which was affecting the city's Pokémon. Ash, Iris, Cilan, and Professor Fennel stopped the trio, with Fennel's long-lost Musharna returning to her side. In the end, Cilan was surprised by Ash's unconventional battle style during their Gym match, so he decided to travel with Ash and Iris to become a better Pokémon Connoisseur.

The fact that the map description references a snowy climate and that the name of the city is a corruption of "striation" (scratches left in rock from glacial friction) is likely a reference to Long Island, which was formed by glacial deposits during the ice age. Moreover, the position of Long Island relative to Manhattan is nearly identical to the position of the east peninsula of Unova relative to the central region, which was based on Manhattan.
Despite Pikachu not being native to the Unovaregion, Pikachu-shaped hedges can be found in the garden. This is one of the few cameo appearances of Pikachu in Generation V.
