Nestled up against the side of the mountain, this is the first real gym stadium that trainers come across. It is a massive stone building, made out of the rock removed from the mines that are just off to the side of it. This building also houses the Mining Museum, which the Leader is curator of. If asked nicely, he might be persuaded to revive a fossil. Leader Cliff; Cobble Badge; Rock Type
The only place in Varaia that contains the mysterious fossil Pokemon, these mines are situated directly beside the Gym Stadium. While the museum may be toured at any time, mastership of the Quakita area must be shown to enter the mines themselves. Many treasures remain undisturbed in the deep caves, and occasional public excursions are held, giving trainers the chance to obtain valuable items or, if one is particularly lucky, a fossil.
Typical of a place with such a name, there are always many trainers here ready to do battle. It is a large, sprawling building with many different wings, each housing its own field so that trainers can choose any type of battle environment they wish. The intense environment is said to help the learning process, as Pokemon generally tend to gain more experience per battle here.
There is a rather odd feel to this particular route, something like walking over the dunes that form on ocean beaches. The ground here is soft sand, but healthy vegetation thrives here as the sand retains moisture that would otherwise be burnt away by the blistering sun. Temperatures get progressively hotter as the path goes on, making this the perfect habitat for many a fire type.
Famous for the Mines that are located just outside of the city limits, Quakita's residents are always battle ready. It hosts Varaia's Battle Club, as well as the Mining Museum. The local Gym and Breeding Center specialize in rock types.
