Debut Curtain Up, Unova League!

Vertress City (Japanese: ヒガキシティ Higaki City) is an anime-exclusive location in Unova. It is a city located near Opelucid City. As the site of the Vertress Conference, it features facilities for competing Trainers similar to previous League locations.

The city was first mentioned by Jervis in Beauties Battling for Pride and Prestige! to inform Ash on the location of the League. Ash and company arrived here in Curtain Up, Unova League!. While signing up for the League, Ash met up with Trip, Bianca, Stephan, and Virgil again. He also saw Cameron outside, who was camping out for the League. Realizing that he had not signed up yet, Ash dragged and brought him to Nurse Joy for the registration.
