also known as the Spear of the Oceans -
is an incredible piece of
architecture constructed using a variety of advanced techniques. Despite its size, it
is difficult to track and even harder to study, due to the nature of
its cloaking devices and the means used to enter. It is considered to have been the
crowning glory of the
Pokélantean civilisation and the product
of one of its biggest injustices.
The Akusha were the ones
responsible for the construction of Samiya. Led by
King Vyctra to believe that Samiya
was intended as a temple to the water Pokémon and a place of refuge for their people, they worked diligently to create the beautiful building.
However, Samiya was purposed as nothing more than a glamorous war machine
commissioned as part of the Pokélantean emperor's intentions to
expand his kingdom by dominating the seas.
The building was not only designed with
manoeuvrability but also stealth in mind. Its cloaking device is highly
advanced for its time and can only be penetrated by the light rays emitted
by a lunar eclipse.
Though it looks nothing like a seafaring
vessel, Samiya contains an 'engine' of sorts - a collection of modified
Taragirite crystals dubbed as
"The Sea Crown", due to the formation they are set in. These crystals
maintain the stability of the building's shields which enable it to
submerge and still retain oxygen.
The Sea Crown has its own security system in
the form of yellow
energy which, in the past, was used by Pokélantean guards to fly above and below the waters surrounding
Samiya, in order to patrol them.
Samiya also contains a limited AI - it is
most prominent in the
water doorway and during a person's interactions with the Sea Crown.
The monetary value of the Sea Crown alone was enough to draw thieves and
jewel collectors into attempts to bargain and steal it away
from Pokélantis. Worried of their 'temple' being despoiled, the Akusha
engaged Samiya's cloaking device and sent it off into the sea, where only
would be able to find it.
It is thought that Samiya is the result
of mankind's first experiments with
Material, but it is presently
unknown as to how such material
would have been obtained or manipulated.
