Location
File:Ever Grande Map.png
Location of Ever Grande City in Hoenn.

Ever Grande City (Japanese: サイユウシティ Saiyū City) is located on an island in eastern Hoenn. The island is blanketed in flowers.

Pokémon Trainers come here to battle the Elite Four of Hoenn after earning eight Gym Badges. There are two Pokémon Centers on the island, in the south and in the north. Either can be reached by using Fly.

With its steep cliffs, it is impossible to reach the city itself without possessing a Pokémon able to scale the high waterfall on the southern end of the city. High above the ocean, its slopes are lush with grass and flowers. The island is bisected by Hoenn's Victory Road, which runs through a large mountain at the center of the island.

Places of interest

Victory Road

Main article: Victory Road (Hoenn)

Victory Road is a dark, complex cave that passes through the middle of Ever Grande City, separating it into two sections. Due to the difficulty of traversing Victory Road, only the toughest trainers will reach the northern end of the tunnel, and thus the Pokémon League and Elite Four. The player must own many HMs to pass though Victory Road and near the entrance the player must battle Wally.

Pokémon League

The lobby of the Pokémon League building in Generation III

The Pokémon League building is the last resting spot before the player challenges the Elite Four. It is a large Pokémon Center and Poké Mart combined with a gateway to the Elite Four which can only entered if the player has all eight Gym badges. The nurse at the left counter will heal the player's Pokémon and the player may purchase items at the right counter.

Before each of the Elite Four member's rooms is a short pathway. This pathway consists of a metal bridge over a black pit. The pathway between Drake's room and the Champion's room is longer than the others, and contains flashing lights in the dark pit and on the far wall.

Hall of Fame

Main article: Hall of Fame

After defeating the Champion, the player will be led to the Hall of Fame. It is a large room with a blue reflective floor. At the back of the room is a machine for recording a Trainer's victory at the Pokémon League and several screens used in the recording process.

Demographics

In the games, its population is uncertain; it is difficult to differentiate between the trainers passing through the town to challenge the Elite Four and normal residents. The only buildings that appear is the League itself and the Pokémon Centers; there are no houses.

In the anime

Ever Grande City in the anime

Ash and co. arrive in Ever Grande City in the episode Like a Meowth to a Flame and leave in The Scheme Team. While there, Ash competes in the Ever Grande Conference and battles his Hoenn rivals, Morrison and Tyson. Ever Grande City in the anime is much different to the game, as there are many houses, restaurants and shops including the Ever Grande Conference Shop, and no sight of Victory Road.
