The mainstay of Pokémon Trainers - the outdoor Pokémon Center

Adventuring in the vast Paldea region won’t be a walk in the park. In order to battle Pokémon Trainers and catch wild Pokémon, you will need to rest your Pokémon and get Poké Balls to catch more Pokémon.

To support Pokémon Trainers, there are many outdoor Pokémon Centers scattered about Paldea. Trainers can easily find Pokémon Centers even from far away—Pokémon Centers light up at night, and each of them has a Poké Ball sign on the roof.

Depending on the version of the game you have, the Pokémon that appear will differ
