‘Like clay to a potter’s wheel you can become the person you wish to be.’ This is a common saying among many that call Potterwheel Town their home.
Located on the southern tip of lies this quaint little town. While the docks aren't glamorous, and unable to handle large amounts of cargo, it's a good spot for the few fisherman. Soft sand pebbles its beach, which one could call littered, but others would see the 'litter' for what it is. Clam shells, seashells, colourful bits of coral, the odd water pokemon that crawled up to sunbathe. It's not a place you'd play football, but it's a relaxing spot, that reeks of casual encounter.
The buildings, houses, and otherwise that make up Potterwheel, is a general store, that serves primarily as a pokecenter. The modest population of locals are spread out together on stilted houses in order to be protected from floods the yearly raised sea levels, and storms coming from the ocean. Many of these houses also serve as workplaces, where the resident has accommodated to create their craft.
Around the town are several art features created by locals over the years. Pottery Garden is a popular spot for people to walk through, as well as the cliche 'date spot' for local teenagers, as there isn't a large rise that could be considered a makeout point. The center of the town is marked by a larger than life potter's wheel, with the town's slogan burnt into the wood.
History and TraditionEdit
Potterwheel Town was founded by two artisans that specialized in works of clay. While their work began to attract trade, they also attracted other artisans, not just of clay, but metal, glass, wood, leather, and anything to be found under the yellow sun. Even specialty chefs and musicians. Pokeball makers have made this their home here, accepting apricorns and minor compensation, in exchange for specialty, hand crafted pokeballs. each year, is the Arts and Crafts Festival, where they set up stands on the beach, to sell the fruits of their labours.
