Santalune City in the anime

In the anime

Santalune City was first mentioned by Alexa in Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!, saying that her sister's Gym is located there and not in Lumiose City. Santalune City made its proper debut appearance in A Blustery Santalune Gym Battle!, where Ash and his friends arrived there to challenge the Gym.

In the anime, it is Tierno's hometown.

Trivia

  • Santalune's Japanese motto is 古式ゆかしい 街 "A traditional city".
  • Santalune City shares several similarities with Viridian City; both cities contain the first Gym the player will encounter on their journey, and both cities connect to three similar routes: Route 22, leading to the badge checkpoints for the Pokémon League; a route leading to the town or city where the player can choose a Kanto starter Pokémon; and a route which leads to a forest named after the city. Incidentally, the internal layouts of both forests are very similar to one another.

Origin

Santalune City is based on the city of Fontainebleau, home of the nearby Forest of Fontainebleau.
