Trivia

  • The background music in Gale Forest was based on Santalune Forest, Kalos from the core series game Pokémon X and Y. It was replaced by Kyle Allen Music's original composition later on.
  • Gale Forest provides the most diverse wild Pokémon selection in a single encounter method, with 10 different species available in the tall grass.
  • Before the Anthian City update, Eclipse Member Linda's Poochyena and Pancham were 2 levels lower, giving 47 and 105 EXP Points respectively.
