Hearthome City is where all contests are held! The city itself is notable for its Pokémon Contest Hall, where one can participate in a Super Contest. Other places of interest also include Amity Square, a Pokémon Center, the Hearthome City Gym, the Pokémon Fan Club, a Pokemart, and the Poffin House. There is also a man here that gives the player a Happiny Egg in Diamond and Pearl, just before departing for Route 209.
Places of interest
Pokémon Contest Hall
- Main article: Pokémon Contest Hall
The main attraction of the city is the Contest Hall. It gathers both coordinators and contestants from throughout the region of Sinnoh to compete. Pokémon here are rated upon their appearance and performance, and in comparison to the previous generations' contests, they hold both more rounds and the rounds themselves have been altered and changed. Also the gym leader Fantina is a self-proclaimed expert at Pokémon contests; sometimes appearing alongside her Drifblim.
- Main article: Amity Square
One of the more notable attractions is Amity Square, where trainers can go for a stroll and relax alongside their Pokémon. Eleven different types of cute Pokémon are permitted to follow the player about in Amity Square, and will fetch either Accessories or Berries for their trainers every 200 steps. It is located in the northernmost region of the city itself, and the appearance of the square changes notably with Platinum ; adding both new entrances and a rather large pool of water in comparison to the Diamond and Pearl versions. Several more Pokémon are also permitted in Platinum than that of Diamond and Pearl.
Hearthome City Gym
- Main article: Hearthome City Gym
The Hearthome City Gym is the official gym of Hearthome City. The gym leader is none other than Fantina herself, and is based upon the use of Ghost-type Pokémon. In Diamond and Pearl , the Hearthome Gym was the fifth gym encountered along the journey. However, with the significant level change of Fantina's Pokémon in Platinum , it has changed to the third gym.
The building itself consists of five stories, each floor being illuminated by eerie torches and having its own mathmatical puzzle to solve. In Pokémon Platinum , the gym is now a dark interior and can only be navigated via torchlight, similarly to the Dewford City Gym in Hoenn.
Pokémon Fan Club
- Main article: Pokémon Fan Club
In Sinnoh, the club is located to the right of the Pokémart situated within the city. It is a place for people to gather and meet to chat about their favorite Pokémon and to show off their own collections. The chairman here elaborates about how his Fan Club is number one nationwide because he brags a lot more than anyone. However, he makes it evident that he doesn't do that anymore due to people complaining. This could also be the reason behind why only one other member, who is a friendship rater , can be found inside the club. A Buneary, Clefairy, and a Psyduck can also be found here, presumably belong to its members. From time to time, an interviewer will also express interest in interviewing the player about their party Pokémon.
- Main article: Poffin House
The Poffin House is a house situated to the west of the Pokémart, where coordinators can bake Poffins to boost their Pokémon's condition for the Super Contests held at the nearby Pokémon Contest Hall; either by themselves or over DS Wireless Communications with people nearby. A maximum of four people can bake Poffins at one time, and you must first speak with the lady to the left-hand side of the interior if you wish to begin. Overall, a Poffin's level depends on the amount of time spent cooking, as well as the amount of spills and burns.
