Pokémon world locations

The Parfum Palace (Japanese: パルファム宮殿 Parfum Palace) is a palace in Kalos located at the north end of Route 6.

The palace was built by the king of Kalos just after a war with the neighboring regions 300 years ago, which is not to be confused with the 3000-year-old Kalos war. Nowadays, it works as a museum, with the entrance fee of PokémonDollar.png1,000.

Geography

Photo from outside the Parfum Palace gates

The Parfum Palace was once the home of the king of Kalos, and has the fitting style for a regal man. Many statues honoring the knights and Pokémon who fought in the 300-year-old war are on display inside, including those of a Bisharp general, which once lead a legion of Pawniard into battle. The entrance hall also contains a statue of Milotic, said to be the most beautiful Pokémon in the world.

Besides statues, the palace is filled with numerous rooms, paintings, and antique artifacts. In the king's bedroom, the player can fully heal their Pokémon by briefly sleeping in the bed. Many tourists and guides can be found all around the castle, telling either their own opinions of the place or bits of its history. On the second floor, there is a hallway decorated with wall-sized mirrors. The hallway leads to the balcony, which offers an overview of the palace's gardens.

The palace garden, preceeded by a bridge over a pond, contains statues of Reshiram and Zekrom, two Legendary Pokémon from the Unova region. In addition, the garden is decorated with four hedge mazes, Poké Ball statues, and a fountain. The king of Kalos is said to have priced his garden back in the day, even holding garden parties out there. Three of the four hedge mazes are shaped to look like a Solrock, a Chandelure, and a male Pyroar.

When the player first arrives at the palace with Shauna, the palace's owner can be found in the entrance hall, looking for his lost Furfrou. The Furfrou can be found inside of a hedge maze at the garden, and the player and Shauna must team up to chase it to a dead end, preventing it from running away. After catching Furfrou, the player and Shauna are invited to watch fireworks at the balcony. Once the fireworks are over, the owner's butler will hand over the Poké Flute needed to wake up the Snorlax blocking Route 7.

In the anime

Parfum Palace in the anime

Parfum Palace first appeared in Awakening the Sleeping Giant!. Unlike in the games, where the palace was a museum, in the anime, the Palace was the home of Princess Allie. She had taken the Poké Flute from Lord Shabboneau on her own permission, thinking that it looked pretty. As the flute was required in an annual festival to awaken a Snorlax sleeping in Camphrier Town, Ash and his friends went to the Parfum Palace to get it back. Princess Allie, however, considered the Poké Flute her own, and refused it hand it back. She then noticed Ash's Pikachu, and said that she wanted to have it. Ash naturally refused to do so, even when Allie offered him great riches in return. She then made Ash an offer: they would have a battle, with Pikachu and the Poké Flute being the bets. Even though this put the ownership of his best friend in danger, Ash reluctantly accepted the challenge.

The battle between Allie's Furfrou and Ash's Pikachu took place at a battlefield located in the palace's courtyard. After a while into the battle, Pikachu attacked Furfrou with Thunderbolt, the static electricity causing Furfrou's hair to stand up. Horrified of the terrible outlook, Allie had Furfrou taken to be groomed right away. Since Furfrou had been withdrawn from the battle, Clemont declared Ash the winner by forfeit. When Ash the asked Allie to give back the Poké Flute, she shocked him by saying that she wouldn't: she had only said that Pikachu and the Poké Flute were bet on the battle, not who would get which if she lost. Ash and his friends were outraged, and Clemont gave Allie a speech of how her selfish behavior was and that wasn't the way how the world worked, saying that she should hand over the Poké Flute since Ash even risked his precious partner when accepting the challenge. Hearing Clemont's seemingly caring speech, Allie agreed to give the Poké Flute back in condition of letting Clemont stay with her. Clemont was shocked, but the others told him to accept the offer, secretly assuring him that they would come to save him once Snorlax had been awakened.

After the Poké Flute had been returned to its rightful owner and the festival had been completed (even though Team Rocket had tried to steal the Poké Flute), Bonnie realized that they had forgotten to save Clemont. However, Clemont then arrived, having left behind a robotic duplicate of himself. Once Allie found out that Clemont had left, she angrily slapped the robot, causing it to blow up on her face.

Trivia

  • The butler guarding the gate will still let the player in even if they do not have the requested entrance fee when they first visit the palace.
  • After the player has beaten the Champion, examining the painting of the King who built the Palace in one of the rooms will cause them to notice that it looks like AZ.

Origin

Parfum Palace is based on the Palace of Versailles, located outside Paris, which was originally built as a hunting lodge by the French king Louis XIII and later expanded into a palace by his son and successor, Louis XIV. The palace is well-known for being among the most opulent in Europe, and this opulence is referenced numerous times in the game. Like its game counterpart, the expansive gardens and man-made lake were the site of extravagant parties, a similarity which is pointed out by a visitor in Parfum Palace. Today, the site is a popular tourist attraction, which requires expensive upkeep. This is cynically echoed by the man who minds the front gate and defends the high entrance fee to Shauna, saying that the proceeds will be used to maintain the museum, "probably." The major difference between the two palaces, however, is that Parfum Palace is apparently privately owned, whereas Versailles is owned and maintained by the French government.
