Big Town (Japanese: ミレニアムタウン Millennium Town) is an anime-exclusive town in Johto introduced in Pikachu & Pichu. It has since also been featured in several shorts including Pichu Bros. in Party Panic, Of Meowth and Pokémon, Trouble in Big Town, and Big Meowth, Little Dreams, and it is also the only location visited in Pichu Bros. mini.

The Pokémon Clubhouse

The town is known for being the home of the Pichu Brothers, who constantly make mischief along with their posse of friends Smoochum, Magby, Wooper, and Teddiursa. The Pokémon Clubhouse, a large playground constructed entirely of disused items, is their hangout spot.

A Lapras ferry, taxis, and double decker buses can be found here for transportation.

Meowth returned to Big Town from a week-long vacation away from Jessie and James in Of Meowth and Pokémon. He soon decided that he wanted to construct a giant statue dedicated to himself, however the plan never eventuated. Instead he became embroiled in the Pichu Posse's antics, and by the end of Big Meowth, Little Dreams, it was time for him to return to Team Rocket.

There are many apartment buildings around here as well as a skyscraper. Notable monuments include Magikarp and Tauros statues and a fountain.

Trivia

  • Its Japanese name, Millennium Town, is a reference to its year of introduction, 2000, being the first year of a new millennium.
  • The town was first introduced in the dub in 2001 without a dub name. It remained without a dub name until 2005, when Pokémon Chronicles simply called the town Big Town in Trouble in Big Town.
