Lavaridge Town (Japanese: フエンタウン Fuen Town) is a small town in central western Hoenn. It is located on the southern foot of Mt. Chimney. The town is well known for its hot spring and is a popular destination for elderly citizens.

Pokémon Trainers often come to Lavaridge Town in order to win the Heat Badge from Flannery, the Lavaridge Gym Leader who specializes in Fire-type Pokémon.

Northeast of the town is the Jagged Pass, leading down from Mt. Chimney. East of the town is Route 112.

Hot Springs

The hot springs are connected to an opening in the back of the Pokémon Center. The people draw as much hot water as they need, yet the spring never runs dry. The magma in the active volcano causes veins of water nearby to well up as hot springs. According to legend, the Lavaridge hot springs calm tension, relieve muscle ache, solve romantic problems, and attract money. An old couple relaxing at the springs will give away an Egg containing a Wynaut. There is also an Ice Heal hidden in the water.

In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the hot spring is split down the middle based on gender (blue and pink colors), but the player is allowed in either one, possibly because there isn't anyone using them at any given time. The old couple is no longer there in the hot springs. There is also a female Pokémon Breeder near the entrances who will sell Moomoo Milk individually or by the dozen.

Pokémon Herb Shop

Main article: Herb Shop

"Bitter taste - better cure!"

The Herb Shop sells four different types of herbal medicine. The herbs are extremely bitter and will cause a Pokémon's friendship to decrease when used. An old man inside of the shop will give the player Charcoal.

All four of the herbs in some way heal the Pokémon that they are used on but cause the Pokémon to be less friendly. The Energy Root heals a Pokémon's HP by 200. The EnergyPowder heals a Pokémon's HP by 50. The Revival Herb revives a fainted Pokémon with all of its HP. The Heal Powder heals any status condition.

The prices of the herbs, in all six regions with herb shops, are:
