Artwork from the TCG

Contest Halls (Japanese: コンテストホール Contest Hall) are buildings where Pokémon Contests, Pokémon Super Contests, and Pokémon Contest Spectaculars are held.

In the games

In Hoenn

The Lilycove City Contest Hall

In Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, there is a Contest Hall for each of the four Contest ranks. In these halls, there is one reception counter (two in the Lilycove City Contest Hall) and Berry Blenders for making Pokéblocks. There are also photo frames for the winning Pokémon. The following is a list of locations that have a Contest Hall and the rank they hold:

Location Rank
Verdanturf Town Normal Rank
Fallarbor Town Super Rank
Slateport City Hyper Rank
Lilycove City Master Rank

In Pokémon Emerald, all Contests take place in Lilycove City, as the halls of Verdanturf Town, Fallarbor Town and Slateport City were replaced by Battle Tents.

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, all four Contest Halls return, but the player can use any of them to participate in any contest rank.

In Sinnoh

The Super Contest Hall

In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, all Super Contests are at the Contest Hall in Hearthome City. In addition to the traditional reception counter, two counters can be found in this hall: one for linked Super Contests and another for practice sessions. The Berry Blenders are gone, as Pokéblocks are replaced by Poffins.

During their first visit to the hall, players will receive an Accessory and a tuxedo or dress (dependent on gender) from the Super Contest Judge Keira and the Master Rank Coordinator Johanna, respectively. Another Super Contest Judge, Jordan, gives the players a Mild Poffin (level 60, smooth 40) after they have obtained the Poffin Case.

In the anime

Contest Halls are large and colorful buildings where Pokémon Contests are held. They also serve as venues for other events (for example, the Hearthome Collection was held at the Hearthome City Contest Hall). Contest Halls are also where Pokémon Coordinators get their Contest Passes. The following is a list of locations that have a Contest Hall in the anime:

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Like in the games, only two regions - Hoenn and Sinnoh - have been shown to have Contest Halls. However, it has been implied that there might be Contest Halls in other regions as well, since Ruby had participated in Pokémon Contests prior to moving to Hoenn. The known Contest Halls are located in the same places as in the games.

During the crisis involving Team Aqua and Team Magma, the Contest Halls of Slateport City, Verdanturf Town and Fallarbor Town were destroyed. They were later rebuilt as Battle Tents.
