Location of Ambrette Town in Kalos.

Ambrette Town (Japanese: コウジンタウン Kōjin Town) is a town located in the Kalos region. 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 interned 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.

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.
