Ensou City: Central The centre of Ensou City spreads in all directions as a lush park, the sky overhead obscured by a translucent plexiglass dome interlaced with steel framework, partially muting the bustle of the city without. Brown, packed earth paths are lined with small grey cobblestones, winding and intersecting across the gently rolling greenery of the park lawn, providing numerous walking avenues for patrons, now and again shadowed by towering fir trees that grant a bit of shade in the warmer times of day. To the southwest of the circular area, a small pond has been dug, sparkling with crystal-clear waters as a fountain sprays merrily at its centre, casting ripples across its surface, the gleam of coins from the wishful barely perceptible in its shallow depths.
Ensou City: North Towering skyscrapers line the road leading north from the park at Ensou's centre, looming like sentinels over the city's administrative district. A raised walking path crosses the broad main street in a few places, allowing easy access from the park to the northern gate of the city, leading to Route 501. Notable here is the presence of Ensou City's city hall, as well as the Kasei region's very own monorail station. Standing tall, the building straddles the elevated monorail track that encircles the city, allowing for long-distance travel to and from this hub of civilization. A concrete fountain splashes lazily at the centre of Union Square, before the city hall, creating a soothing bubble of calm amid the hustle and bustle of the otherwise busy streets.

Ensou City: East Undeniably, the jewel of the eastern quadrant of Ensou City also happens to be - perhaps by coincidence - the Kasei region's largest Pokemon Center, telltale crimson roof readily seen from a distance to ensure that its location is well-known to trainers visiting the area. A great glass facade allows nearly full view into each of the building's three stories, replete with sliding doors and a scrolling, colourful banner of light announcing various important happenings within the Center. The main road of the city runs lazily from east to west, skirting the hospital and hotel to connect the park at the city's center with the brightly-lit eastern gatehouse to Route 505. Numerous side streets branch from the central road, leading blithely toward the northern and southern quarters.

Ensou City: South Neon signs and brightly-coloured billboards mark this quadrant of Ensou City as the entertainment district, packed to the gills with restaurants, stores, and attractions for the idle traveler. The green, flashing marquee of the Ensou Bar and Grill offers a ready source of a hot meal for anyone passing by, while further down the block, the red, blinking neon of Club Ensou fires up at night, one of the city's most popular hotspots. The Lakeside Apartments rest astride a western road leading out of the city proper, a gatehouse proclaiming it to be Route 525, the only access point to Lakeside University. The main road continues south, ending at the gatehouse to Route 511 and the spacious southern portion of Kasei itself.

Ensou City: West The buildings of western Ensou are relatively low to the ground, in comparison to the skyscrapers found to the north and east. Nonetheless, the structures here gleam with bright steel and glass, numerous storefronts advertising their wares in bright signs for passerby. Nowhere is this more prevalent than Ensou City's Pokemart, domed roof shining a rich royal blue against the otherwise achromatic backdrop of the city, making it instantly identifiable. Wide windows offer a view into the building, revealing countless shelves and racks of everything from medicines to poke balls and battle items, as well as everything in between. The main road forks toward the west, a northern branch leading to the small gatehouse of Route 519, while the main western branch proceeds through a broad arch leading to Route 525 and Lakeside University.

A pokestore is located here.
Positioned neatly upon the northern shore of Kasei where the coastline angles northward, Port Nuovo was one of the first edifices of civlization developed during the settlement of Kasei, and it remains a key point of entry for anyone immigrating from northern regions. The docks that are positioned on the shoreline seem to have a neverending stream of nautical travel entering and exiting the city, bringing in supplies and people and all manner of things, and allowing a similarly diverse set of departures; truly, Port Nuovo is the keystone in Kasei's import and export business.
The town that was built to allow the local workers and their families a place to stay has a decidedly modern feel to it. Metal and circuitry seems to factor heavily into constructions, with most buildings boasting at least metallic supports that prevent large-scale destruction in case of a flooding season, and neon lights posted on most buildings. Even casual examination reveals Mawiles and Elekids, Aggrons and Mareeps; the people of this city certainly do love their steel and electric types, and the architecture of the town makes it clear that the pokemon that have been raised by the trainers in this area have been put to good use and raised well.
Three different routes stretch out before travelers seeking to continue with their journey. To the west, Route 523 parallels the coastline and leads toward Bayou Bay, whereas Route 502 to the east bridges a small river as it leads toward Skygrove City. Route 522 leads over the water to the north, toward the island refuge of the Iced Flamingo Resort. Finally, Route 501 leads south toward the centerpiece of Kasei civilization, Ensuo City.

On a parallel with Tayou Temple for the southernmost city in Kasei, this city came into being largely due to a fierce spirit of determination and an unrelenting drive for excellence. Despite being settled into the none-too-hospitable Ginrei mountain range, despite the proximity of the nearby desert land and the heat that accompanies being so close to such arid climates, the people of Senarach City have a never-say-die attitude that has brought into being one of the most impressive feats in all of Kasei: a thriving town in the midst of what would otherwise be an untenable geographical position.
The construction of this city is a testament to the devotion and will of those who choose to make their homes here. Tall buildings provide long shadows that cover the streets and provide welcome shade from the sun overhead, and small mounds of rubble here and there offer a hint that the pioneers that chose to create Senarach City did not so much go around or through the mountains as tear the very peaks themselves down in order to make room. While all of the customary accoutrements are present - a pokecenter, shops, homes and the like - there is also a conspicuous theme of competition and personal strength. More than one gymnasium can be found within the city limits, and motivational posters encouraging people to give all they can are posted within; the lazy tend to congregate elsewhere, but the strong-willed easily find a place here. Only the renowned Senarach Hot Springs run counter to this philosophy, rewarding a hard day's work with much-needed relaxation and comfort.
Whether for good or for ill, the distance between Senarach City and most other towns means that the Kasei police force has a tertiary presence here at best; there is a police headquarters, but it is frequently stretched beyond its limits in an attempt to keep order. Might makes right is often the word of the day, and while crime is kept underground by residents who want to live peaceful lives, it's known throughout the region that you can find almost anything in Senarach if you look hard enough and know the right people.
To the west, Route 517 leads further into the Ginrei Mountains and toward the desert climate of the Senshin Monastery. Route 514 takes travelers underground through winding tunnels to reach Shale Valley, and Route 512 heads back to the civilized comforts of Ensuo City and all points north and east.
