tip of the Sinnoh Region, it is also shaped like a snowflake. Snow from Mt. Coronet covers all of the city causing lower temperatures in Snowpoint City. At the very north of Snowpoint City is the guarded temple called the Snowpoint Temple, in the middle is the Snowpoint Gym, and on the bottom left and right is the Poke Mart and the Pokemon Center (Which is found in all of the towns).
Snowpoint City is a very unique town, in fact most events seem to occur in such a small city, it is also the neighboring town of a place called Lake Acuity which contains the legendary Pokemon called Uxie. One of the meta-game events is about Uxie and its when Team Galactic tries (Has success in doing so) to capture Uxie so they can continue with their lake experiment to create the Red Chain. Another meta-game event is when you beat the Pokemon League and you are told that there is a boat that that can take you to the very popular place called the Battle Zone, it happens to be located at Snowpoint City where the sailor wouldn't let you ride in his boat, but with you winning the Pokemon League you can now advance to the Battle Zone.
If you go to Snowpoint City on January 12th it snows Diamond dust there because one of the developers in Game Freak has a birthday on January 12th, therefor they decided to add in the Diamond Dust snow. This does not happen anywhere else so be sure to be in Snowpoint City January 12th.
The Snowpoint Gym (Japanese: キッサキジム Kissaki Gym) is the Ice-type Gym that's smack dab in the middle of the small City. The Ice-type Gym Leader: Candice is one of the two Ice-type Gym leaders out of all the Pokemon games. Her D/P team consists of: Snover, Abomasnow, and Froslass three duo-type Pokemon. When you first enter you need to go through a series of ice blocks and snowballs as most of the Gyms have some sort of challenge to get to the Gym Leader plus they have Gym members hiding somewhere in the terrain. After you beat Candice you will be given the Icicle Badge plus the TM 72 (Avalanche) and you will be able to use the HM Rock Climb found on Route 217.
Sneasel, Medicham, Snover, and Abomasnow all duo-type Pokemon. It is unsure if Candice really owns a Dudrio because it was seen in the anime episode: A Pyramiding Rage!.. Candice's first anime episode was called Classroom Training! and then she was put into more episodes after that.
The Snowpoint Temple (Japanese: キッサキしんでん Kissaki Temple) is located at the north of Snowpoint City and is where a person in a snow jacket is guarding the door to protect everything that's there. When you beat the Pokemon League then the person that guarded the passage way will let you through with the permission of Candice The Gym Leader. The Pokemon found in the wild for the four floors consist of: Golbat, Onix, Steelix, Smoochum, Jynx, and Sneasel and they are mostly found around Lv. 50 so be careful and take some Max Repels to help you out. There are many Ice panels down on the lower levels so be careful and try to slip and slide your way through to the next entrance.
Regirock, Regice, and Registeel which can be obtained by Pal Park or traded from a friend/GTS. In D/P you can find Regigigas at Lv.70, but in Pokemon Platinum you can find a legendary Regigigas at Lv.1 for the first time that a Nintendo Pokemon game actually has this feature, but it also gives you a chance to raise it better with movesets. Other than the Regigigas Statue in the Snowpoint Temple, nothing else special or any series of events happens after that.
