    Default Accommodations for Pokemon Trainers

    Let's say the gym leader of a town or city is not available to fight until tomorrow and you want to stay overnight. Where do you go? I'm thinking there could be a place that offers free lodging for Pokemon Trainers. However, the offerings are very simplistic. The bed is a basic spring mattress with a sheet covering the mattress and a cover to top it off. There is a ceiling fan (AC is available on request). The only other things there are a cabinet for your clothes and a table with a lamp next to your bed in case you want to read at night. You may get your own bathroom (sink, toilet, and shower) or you may have a locker-room type place that you would have to share with other guests. Either way, the only luxuries they will provide are toilet paper. Everything else (both bed and bath) is your problem. Stay is limited to a week.

    These accommodations are mostly for trainers who can't afford to stay at a hotel and do not have any family or friends in the area that can help them out. It ain't much but if you have been mostly been outside using a sleeping bag, at least you would be thankful that you have a roof over your head for a little bit.

    What do you think?

    In actual fact, Pokémon centres have places for Trainers to stay overnight, so their is no need for any other kind of accomodation. Although they do work in pretty much excatly the way you've described, although i'm not sure about there being a time-limit, but i'd assume it would be a week or less.

    I think the priciple reason for accomodation in a Pokémon centre is if your Pokémon is really badly injured and needs overnight aid, or even multiple days, it's trainer can stay at the centre so that they can be called on quickly by Nurse Joy or her aides (Mostly Chansey).

    Thats a nice description of what a Pokemon Center's staying area could look like :)

    In the anime series, Ash and his friends have had to stay at Pokemon Centers many times for different reasons, one of the reasons they've had to stay is when one of their Pokemon were in need of overnight aid, like Rexasaur said.

    In my opinion, it'd be really cool if this were also in the games; situations where Gym Leaders arent available, and each Pokemon Center would function just like an Inn in Dragon Quest, where you have to pay a certain amount to stay overnight, and it fast-forwards to the next day :D

    I've always just sort of assumed that Pokémon Centers have lodging for trainers, as well as restaurants and laundry service. Basically hotels for trainers, in addition to being hospitals for their Pokémon. It's one of those things that's rarely stated outright, but the audience is just meant to infer.

    Going by the anime Pokemon Center's also funtion as places where trainers can stay to rest and eat... so I guess it could be the same for the games

    I actually didn't know this, and it does explain something I've always wondered about with the games (namely, where the character would stay on his or her travels all over this big country).

    Still doesn't explain what the player does when s/he is trapped in a cave or some other place not in a city, though.

    They'd camp out... I say most trainers stock up on food, Water and varies neccesities while in the wild and stock up on them when they're in a city/town

    Haha, no, the trainers in the games are creatures who don't require sleep.

    I always thought that trainers pretty much slept everywhere, depending on where the night catches them. I guess if they happened to be near a center, then they'd stay there. They're lucky whenever that's the case, because I imagine the accommodations there are complete (though basic, yes) and hotel-like. If night falls while they're in a bit of a secluded place, though, they'd probably have to set-up camp with the equipment they seem to always carry with them, as we have seen many times in the anime.

    Seeing as they're already able to tame sentient, powerful beings...

    But yeah, kids in the pokéworld had always seemed more capable than those in the real world.

    Seriously, I'm 22 and I'm not that responsible yet.

    Never seen one in any town I've visited. :D
    The pokemon league must be loaded to sponsor a bunch of trainers. I mean, food, shelter, electricity, supplies...

    That's the purpose that Pokemon Centers have in the amine. And they have those little sitting areas in the games.

    They can enter anyone's house, it's the league threatening people on what'll happen to them if they don't offer accomodations.
