The Great Crater of Paldea is a location at the heart of Paldea. Inside the crater is a vast area known as Area Zero, which is the source of the Terastal phenomenon.

Players can find Paradox Pokémon inside Area Zero. They also cannot set up Picnics inside.

History[]

Around 2,000 years prior to the events of the game, Paldea was under the rule of an emperor who ordered an expedition into the crater after hearing rumors of treasure. However, this decision would prove fatal to the empire, as it was declining after 1,000 years of exploring. Roughly 800 years prior to the events of the game, another expedition, led by the adventurer Heath, would eventually reach the bottom. During this trip, they discovered the Herba Mystica and Paradox Pokémon, which Heath recorded in the Scarlet/Violet Book and Occulture. However, the entries were highly discredited as he was accused of fabricating his story, thus relegating the book as fantasy.

The team attempted to grow the Herba Mystica outside the crater, but these failed as wild Pokémon ate the herbs, growing into the Titan Pokémon.

Roughly 60 years before the events of the game, the Terastal phenomenon was discovered. Seven years later, several research stations were built to conduct further research in the area. Professor Sada/Turo eventually remained to continue their research, whereas the others eventually left it. The Naranja/Uva Academy eventually prohibited students from entering the crater due to the instability of the area and dangerous Pokémon that resided within.
