Location

Location of Ambrette Town in Kalos.

Ambrette Town (Japanese: コウジンタウン Kōjin Town) is a town located in the southwest portion of the Kalos region. It is situated on the edge of a seaside cliff with a narrow coastline.

It is also the location of Kalos's Fossil Lab, where fossils can be revived into Pokémon.

Places of interest

Fossil Lab

The Ambrette Fossil Lab is a laboratory that specializes in reviving fossilized Pokémon remains back into living Pokémon. Various fossils, anthropological and astronomical items and materials line the shelves near the back walls and entrance. Among the items stored here are several meteorites which can be used to change Deoxys between its Formes. A Hiker will also award the player the Burn, Chill, Douse and Shock Drives if shown a Genesect.

Ambrette Aquarium

The Ambrette Aquarium is a two-story public aquarium with no entry fee. It also serves as the connecting point between Ambrette Town, Route 8 and the coastline. Several patrons walk around on the two levels, enjoying the various aquariums on the upper entrance floor. On the lower level sits a large Magikarp statue, with the exit leading out to Route 8. If the player talks to the Fisherman next to the statue, he will give the player an Old Rod.

Hotel Ambrette

On the second floor of Hotel Ambrette, a group of travelers will rotate in and out of the rooms. Any of the travelers not at Hotel Ambrette on one day may be found at the hotels in Camphrier Town, Cyllage City, Geosenge Town, Coumarine City, and Couriway Town.

Six travelers will rotate among the first room on a six-day cycle: a Hiker, a Waiter, a Madame, a Maid, a male Tourist, and a Backpacker (in that order); as the player talks to these travelers on different days (at any hotel), they will gradually open up to the player. A female Tourist who gives out Ribbons will also occupy the second room every Monday.

Mr. Bonding also initially occupies the third room, granting the player the Sp. Def. Power O-Power when spoken to.

Demographics

Pokémon X and Y

The population of Ambrette Town is 27, making it the largest town in Kalos.

In the anime

The Ambrette Aquarium in the anime
Ambrette Town in anime

In Going for the Gold!, Ash and his friends arrived at Ambrette Town and were met with a spectacular view of the sea. As Bonnie and some of the group's Pokémon played in the ocean, Serena suggested that they should visit the Ambrette Aquarium. There they saw many species of Water Pokémon up close. Later they heard about the town's legend of a Golden Magikarp, and helped the aquarium's director Rodman fish for it. They didn't manage to catch it, but did catch a glimpse of it.

In Coming Back into the Cold!, the group visited the fossil laboratory in Ambrette Town and got to meet an Amaura and an Aurorus.

Trivia

  • Ambrette's Japanese motto is 紅く 舞う 土煙 "Dancing cloud of red dust".
  • Ambrette Town has the same background music as Aquacorde Town.
