Depending on the version, this statue features a different legendary Pokémon. This City is also home to the Eterna City Gym with Gardenia as its Gym leader. Team Galactic have also occupied a building here.

The city is bordered by Eterna Forest to the West, Mt. Coronet to the East and Route 206 to the South.
