View Full Version : I've grown weary of all this battling, I've chosen to retire.

Let's say that you got tired from all this battling, or you've grown old. You want to settle down, live a peaceful life, even marry someone. What region/city would you choose to settle down to?

Personally, I'd like to settle down in Hoenn, specifically in Fortree City. I like to live somewhere peaceful, and somewhere that's full of trees and Fortree City seems like the best city.

Verdanturf town. It's so peaceful and happy, and 'the air is tasty' there. Plus I used to fall asleep to the background music.

When I first saw that title I thought Zeffy had given up on Pokemon!

Somewhere like Verdanturf Town or Lilycove City where I could relax peacefully would be nice. Ecruteak City would be good too.

Only now I realized that as a successful Pokemon trainer, you could retire at 20 and live for the rest of your life just from other people's lunch money. Unless you spent it all for, say, Proteins of course.

Hmm, I'd probably just pick the hometown, why go anywhere else?

March 31st, 2011, 5:41 AM
I probably would pick a small town like Cherrygrove Town or New Bark Town. Jotho is my favorite region.

March 31st, 2011, 5:41 AM
Verdanturf Town. It has contests, it's close to a daycare center for my Pokémon, it has nice clean air, the grass is always greener, and I just simply love the music.

For some reason, I've always loved Pacifidlog Town. I really wouldn't mind living there...at least until a hurricane blows through or something. XD

Most likely Ecruteak City, in Johto. Seems like such beautiful scenery and so peaceful.

March 31st, 2011, 6:07 AM
Lilycove. Beautiful, big for Hoenn, by the ocean! I could have boats and stuff. And run a ferry service between Lilycove and Mossdeep. And volunteer at the Safari Zone on weekends~

Probably Sinnoh, the place with the day care. I always spent a lot of time there

Knowing me, I'd end up being bored in one of these quiet, gentle towns. Somewhere like Saffron or Castelia City would probably suit me best. There's still a lot to do even if you don't want to battle all the time... Although places like Celadon, Goldenrod and Opelucid have department stores in or near them, and I do like my shopping. Hmm... decisions, decisions!

March 31st, 2011, 7:54 AM
Ecruteak probably, it's sort of a medium-city, and is close to Goldenrod and the Bug-Park.

Plus I bet Halloween in Ecruteak would be amazing haha.

March 31st, 2011, 8:41 PM
Actually, I think I'd settle for Mossdeep City. I mean, it's like a mixture of rural and urban. It's an single island but it has a space center on it.

I also want to settle in Fortree, Pacifidlog, Sootopolis and heck, Castelia City.

Virdian City, Kanto. This goes waaaay back to my days of writing fanfic, where my OCs settled there. I've grown strangely attached to the city since. Pathetic, but true!

Also, its just my kind of city: not too big to get crazy, but not a small town. Just can't do small towns anymore.

March 31st, 2011, 8:53 PM
The place where it all began, of course. Pallet Town, that's where I got my Squirtle and started my journey to become a Pokemon trainer.

April 1st, 2011, 10:41 PM
I'd settle in Slateport City. The weather from the beach near it would be nice to enjoy.

April 1st, 2011, 11:56 PM
I'd like to rest in the Unova region, and I'd love to live in Nimbasa City. The amusement park, the Pokémon Musicals, it'd be wonderful to live there.
I would also like to watch the young trainers battle in the Battle Subway. I'd be thinking, "Ah, I remember when I used to do that."

Either Castelia City, Goldenrod City, or Celadon City. I don't care that I'll get old, I couldn't take living in a small town away from all the action.

Ecruteak City, Johto.

I've definately played through the gen II games more than any other and I've always loved Ecruteak City, especially in the remakes, its just so beautiful (especially Bellchime trail). I also love old buildings and history, Ecruteak City is full of this, its also not too far away from the Ruins of Alph.

My favourite thing about Ecruteak City is that is quiet but not too quiet and close to many other cities that are appealing to me, I love the size of Goldenrod, I'd find the Lake of Rage a lovely place to visit and the seaside city of Olivine isn't too far away.

Also, can you just imagine the view from the top of Tin Tower?

When I was young and just playing G/S/C, I found this really nice secluded spot that was just where I thought my trainer could build a house. It was in a corner, below Blackthorne City, with a pretty little lake and a tree. How nice would it be to build a cottage there!

But now, there are so many places I can see myself in. Lilycove perhaps, because it seems to have a nice shopping mall and would be by the ocean. I would settle down and let my Pokemon breed in the nearby Daycare, and give the Eggs to passerby trainers.

April 2nd, 2011, 12:57 PM
Probably the picturesque Cherrygrove City :)

There are loads of opportunities in Hoenn too - Lilycove for loads to do; Lavaridge for the springs or Verdanturf for the peace and serenity.

April 2nd, 2011, 1:07 PM
Hm, if I were to settle down in a peaceful city, it would definitely be Olivine City. Living by the ocean sounds so pleasant, and relaxing, and it's a great place to get away from all the hustle and bustle.

April 2nd, 2011, 3:01 PM
i wouls most likely settle down in hoenn, in fortree or the 8th gym leader's city (name escapes my mind, but i'm pretty sure its mosdeep), cause i love the wilderness, and the ocean !!!

April 2nd, 2011, 4:15 PM
Inside Meteor Falls, constantly scaring the **** out of everyone's favorite stoner, Steven Stone.

Noob out.

April 3rd, 2011, 2:53 AM
hahaha, i think he would stop being terrefied after the first ew prnaks, but still, nice sense of humor, and nice catchphrase, and in response to this thread, i might also settle down in littleroot, the one presented in the anime, not the small game version of it, lolol

April 3rd, 2011, 3:01 AM
Hard to say. Anywhere in the Unova region would be fine I guess. I´m a big city type guy.

April 3rd, 2011, 3:28 AM
Kanto, Viridian, and I'll make my son to become the next champion. Maybe breeding some pokemon also.

April 3rd, 2011, 3:40 AM
I would say I wanna settle down in Unova region, Opelucid City (the traditional one). I like the natures and fresh air. Then go into our backyard and draw the beautiful scene.

Do you mean Sootopolis? That's the city where the 8th Gym is located :)

April 3rd, 2011, 8:08 PM
Its funny because my brother & I discussed how if we were to permantly stay in a city which one would we choose & why.

Anyways my choice would be Olivine city. After retiring I'd teach young kids how to battle in the Olivine City gym and help Jasmine with care-taking it. I'd also love to live in Olivine because it's so relaxing; watching the sunset on the ocean at night, walk to the farm north of Olivine to get some fresh milk or maybe fancy myself and take a surf ride around the Whirl Islands! Mosdeep, Canaclave & Snowpoint city would all be a tie for a close second!
