    Default What is the significance of the "Foreign Building"?

    You know that church or cathedral in Hearthome city? What is so special about it? No music is played when inside the building and the people talk about strange stuff. That place always creeped me out and I never knew why that place was in the game.

    that is a good question! I'm pretty sure it has nothing to really add to the game. S far it has no real significance. So to answer your question I guess it's just another one of those meaningless places in pokemon where people talk to you but nothing gets accomplished (kinda like safari zone rest areas)....

    Shows religion in the pokemon world. I don't know what they worship, though I would think it might be some aspect of Arceus, or maybe Dialga and Palkia (there appears to be a stained glass window showing light comming from a mountain top, likely atop Mt. Coronet). Maybe they just worship some force of peace and good, since all their sayings mostly have to do with kindness and peaceful coexistance.

    I never really cared about that place because to me it's another useless building.

    Well, since it is a place of Worrship, and Arceus is the "God" Pokemon, maybe this place will have something to do with getting to Arceus, in-game, when that event is released. Maybe you like have to get the event key from the guy in green in the Pokecenter, but then take it to the Foreign Building to get something else (much like Shaymin and the Garcidia Flower).

    That building has absolutely nothing to do with Arceus or any other Pokemon in particular.

    Maybe it's like some of the NPC houses? By this I mean, not all NPCs inside houses give good advice or even any items (or Trades).

    Doubt it; if that were the case, I'm sure that some hackers would've figured that out by now and told everyone about it. I'm almost positive that for the Arceus event, all you do is go to the top of Mt. Coronet with the Azure Flute, and then it appears.

    It's probably just to make it so Nintendo can't be sued for going against religion or some type of crap like that. With it in there, it kind of shows that they acknoledge religion along with athiesm (sp?).

    I think it doesn't serve any real purpose, and honestly, think it was a horrible decision. The building is obviously based on a church or cathedral, and IMHO religion has no place in the pokemon universe. It just begs for controversy.

    i would say (like you said) That the pokemon religion is worshipping (not just a sole pokemon but many) like mew arceus dialga and palkia (and also some other pokemon have storys like cleffa came from the moon (thus the meaning of the moon stone)

    So, why in the stained glass window there is a image of light comming from at the top of Mt. Coronet?

    Thats so strange that Nintendo decided to put religion into this game.

    I thought it was a religious building of some sort. It always seemed like that. After reading what the people say in there, I'm guessing it's a building that's for bringing people and Pokemon together.

    As for its importance, probably none.

    You just get the azure flute from an event and go to the top of Mt. Coronet to play it; a staircase appears that leads to Arceus. At least, that's the way it was in D/P. There was nothing to do with the church in the event at all.

    Hmmm... I can't really tell but I want to hear opinions.

    Does the Foreign Building look similar to the Pokemon League? And why?

    Also, why is it called the "Foreign Building"?

    It's a cult foreign building.

    ^ Maybe it was going to be used as the Pokemon League, but got ditched and left there.

    Because, as the NPCs within tell you, it's a place where people of all cultures, foreign or otherwise, can convene and converse.

    In a middle-of-the-region city? Try again.
