Location
Hoenn Ever Grande City 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.

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 utilize many HM moves to pass though Victory Road and near the exitRSORAS/entranceE the player must battle Wally.

Pokémon League

Pokémon League lobby

Ruby Sapphire Emerald
Ever Grande City League Lobby RS.png Ever Grande City League Lobby E.png
 

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.

In Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, the Pokémon League building is a large orange tower. Before each of the Elite Four member's rooms is a short pathway consisting of a metal bridge over a black pit. The pathway between Drake's room and the Champion's room is longer than the others, containing flashing lights in the dark pit and on the far wall.

In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Pokémon League building is no longer a modern tower, but instead resembles a traditional Japanese castle. The approach to each room is themed after each individual member of the Elite Four. Each chamber is contained within its own traditionally-styled building raised above the ground, and connected via bridges.

In Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Phoebe's room is purple and contains two pits on either side with broken bricks, resembling the kind found in a stereotypical haunted house. In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the approach to Phoebe's room features hanging lavender and a pond with spectral water lilies on either side of a long wooden bridge. Eight spirits emerge and possess the lanterns hanging on the building, illuminating them. Inside of Phoebe's chamber, the pits are simply dark voids. A purple armchair rests against the back wall of the room.

In Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, Glacia's room is ice blue and contains two pits on either side with ice bricks underneath. In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the approach to Glacia's room is a snowy bridge over a frosty void. Snow blankets the roof of the building, while icicles hang from its edges. When the player approaches, a blizzard briefly passes through the area and the bridge becomes covered with non-slippery ice. The pits inside the room are filled with frozen water and a blue armchair rests against the back wall.

In Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, Drake's room is red and contains two pits on either side with spikes underneath. In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the approach consists of a stone bridge crossing a large pool of lava. Two flames rise over the bridge and enter a stone dragon head statue, causing its nostrils to flare. The building containing Drake's room is notably different from the others, appearing as a stone and canvas structure. The pits inside the chamber are filled with lava and a purple armchair rests against the back 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 city to challenge the Elite Four and normal residents. The only buildings that appear are the League itself and the Pokémon Centers; there are no houses.

Trivia

  • Ever Grande's Japanese motto is はなと うみと ポケモンの らくえん "The paradise of flowers, the sea, and Pokémon".
  • This is the only city to host a Pokémon League in the games. However, besides the league itself and a Pokémon Center, there are no other buildings in Ever Grande City, residential or otherwise.
  • The league lobby does not have a second floor in Ruby and Sapphire and Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. This is not the case in Emerald, however.
  • Ever Grande City, along with New Bark Town and the Safari Zone Gate in Johto, are the only towns or cities in Pokémon games to have three separate words in their name.
  • In Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, Steven's Skarmory is the only one of the Elite Four's Pokémon not introduced in Generation III.
  • The programming of the Pokémon League gatekeepers only actually checks for the Knuckle Badge and the Feather Badge. The player is assumed to have the other six badges, as Ever Grande City itself can only be reached by using the HM moves they enable. This can be exploited in glitched runs such as this TAS.

Origin

  • The design of the Pokémon League building in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire appears to be based on Shuri Castle in Okinawa.
