Santalune City

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Pokemon X
Last Updated:

In this city:

  • Pokemon Center
  • Boutique
  • Pokemon School
  • Pokemon Gym

As soon as you enter, you’ll see the Pokemon Center and beside it is a Boutique that sells hat and accessories where you can buy stuff to customize your character. You can check what items are available by getting inside the shop’s fitting room.

Enter the pokemon center and your friend will remind you of the basic functions of the pokemon center. There’s a fitting room at the upper left part of the center and a pokemon mart on the other side. If you received any mystery gift (like the special distribution Torchic), you can talk to the lady beside the nurse. There’s also a PC beside the nurse as well.

you talk with the girl in the leftmost house to learn about the badges and their effects. Head to the fountain in the middle of town then go to the east. Enter the house to the right and talk to the kid there to get a Great Ball.

If you enter the house to the left of fountain, you can talk to the guy there to trade a Bunnelby for his Farfetch’d. Bunnelby is a common pokemon you can capture in Route 3.

After completing the trade, go back to the fountain and enter the Pokemon School to the north. Talk to the teacher there to receive X Attacks and X Defenses. You can also check the school’s whiteboard to learn about different basic Status Conditions.

Next, head to the upper right portion of the map to find a girl in front of the Santalune City Gym. Talk to her and she’ll challenge you to a battle. She offers a pair of roller blades if you can beat her.

Roller Skater Rinka (Prize money: 224)

  • LV7 Zigzagoon (normal)

Rinka’s Zigzagoon is a bit stronger compared to what you have encountered in the wild so far. However, it is not that threatening, especially if you’re training your pokemon. Defeat her with ease and receive the roller blades from her.

You won’t be able to leave the area to the southwest since the gym leader’s sister will stop you from advancing. If you managed to defeat Rinka, you should be able to challenge the gym leader. If you feel that you still need to train, you can exit the town to the east to reach Route 22. If you’re ready, just head right in and enter the Santalune City Gym.

Hidden Items

These items can be easily detected using the Dowsing Machine that you'll get bit later. You can still get these hidden items without it .

Great Ball: Lower-right corner of the chairs and tables, cafe in the hill, northwest of the town.

Antidote: In the lower-left lamp post, cafe in the hill, northwest of the town.

Super Potion: Far left signboard, cafe in the hill, northwest of the town.
