Lacunosa Town is a town in the north-east of the Unova region. To the west of Lacunosa Town is Route 12 and to the east is Route 13.

To the north-east of Lacunosa Town lies Giant Chasm, which is a location that has affected the residents of the town greatly over the years. According to legend, a long time ago, a large meteor came from the sky containing a terrifying monster. It was said that at night the monster would appear in the town along with the cold winds in the night. The residents of the town surrounded Lacunosa Town in a wall to keep the monster out. A rule was then set on the town that forbid anyone from leaving at night and encouraged people to stay in their homes. Even though residents no longer believe this old story, they still stay inside of their houses at night. There is a grandma in the north who will tell the old story to the player.

In the anime

Lacunosa Town acted as the location of the Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup, which Ash and his friends, including the recently returned Dawn, participated in.


  • Lacunosa Town's architecture and layout are greatly resembling the Aegean islands of Greece and the town walls are an obvious reference to the wall layout used in those islands.
  • In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, Professor Juniper states that Lacunosa may be derived from lacunosus clouds, a type of cloud meaning "full of holes", which may be why Lacunosa Town has walls to protect them from the mysterious beast.
