Xandau is a fan-made region created by me, Jadefire62, and is the setting of the first part of my fanfic, Aventurine Adventures. Any questions about usage should be directed to my talk page - though if you can find me in chat, that works too.

Geography & Climate

Xandau is a region to the west of the Kanto/Johto continent, and northwest of Hoenn.

To the north, Xandau is very, very cold. While there are few mountains, hills are countless. About a quarter of Xandau's cities and towns reside here, including what many call the Twin Cities, the two biggest cities in the region. Sometimes they get blizzards, especially in the very north.

To the south, flat plains hold many farms, as well as the other half of the towns and cities. There are a few hills near the very southern part of Xandau, but mostly, it's an expanse of fields with cities and towns sprinkled throughout.

Cities & Towns

Aventurine Town

Aventurine Town is where Professor Yew, the Pokémon professor of the Xandau region, lives. Located in the middle of the western-half of Xandau, the temperature doesn't change much, resulting in fair weather for most of the year. When it changes, though, expect severe changes.


Residing in this quaint village are many family homes, where elderly grandparents live with their children and grandchildren. A Pokémon Center is also located here.

Important Locations & Landmarks

Aventurine Forest

This forest, right outside of Aventurine Town, is home to many Bug and Grass Pokémon, along with some Normal, Ground, and Flying-types. A trail runs straight through the dense trees, connecting Aventurine Town to Roseville.

Amethyst Valley

Named after the deep, rich amethyst deposits residing in the Purple Gorge, Amethyst Valley is known for it's quality amethyst items. When the sun shines directly down in this valley, it fractures in all the amethyst gems embedded in the valley and in the town, throwing purple light everywhere. Located between Citrine City and Jade Town, and the home of Amethyst Town.

Purple Gorge

This gorge, residing in the slopes of Amethyst Valley, harbors deep, rich amethyst deposits. It's how the gorge got it's name, and how everything else in the valley got it's name as well. The gorge itself is not that far from the town.

Amethyst Manor

This manor resides in the Amethyst Valley, a bit apart from the town.

(More TBA)

Quartz Mountain

Another mountain in northern Xandau. Not as snowy or cold, but contains much treasure inside. Mines were built to excavate it, but were eventually abandoned. Few trainers come here.
