Slateport City in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, with the Pokémon Contest House

Slateport City (Japanese: カイナシティ Kaina City) is a port town on the southern coast of Hoenn. It is the ninth largest city in the Pokémon world.

Slateport was created because the clean water made the food abundant in the area, so a local market started to grow. The city then soon became a harbor where ships and boats come and go. There is a lighthouse near the south of Slateport that illuminates the sea for passing ships. It is a great shopping destination with a local Slateport Market. Captain Stern is a big name in Slateport. He is an undersea explorer who runs Stern's Shipyard, the local Oceanic Museum and also working on the S.S. Tidal which runs in and out of Slateport City after its completion.

The city has three major entrances, one from the north of Slateport City is Route 110, which has a bicycle route as well as a path to Mauville City, one that is directly south of the city is the beach of Route 109, and one that is east of the city is the ocean path of Route 134, but the water's current is too strong to Surf east.

Places of interest

Slateport Market

The Slateport Market is an open-air bazaar featuring items that can't be easily found anywhere else. The Slateport Markets have been in business since the creation of Slateport City itself as the clean water made the food abundant in the area, so a local market started to grow. The Slateport Markets are situated next to the ocean, so the scent of the salty sea seeps through the air. There is a place to buy Secret Base decorations, vitamins and fresh seaweed there.

Doll shop

There is a shopkeeper at the Slateport Market in the bottom-left corner that sells Dolls.

TM shop

There is another shopkeeper at the Slateport Market in the middle-right side that sells TMs. This shopkeeper only appears after the player obtains TM43 (Secret Power) on Route 111.

Oceanic Museum

Main article: Oceanic Museum

The Oceanic Museum is a large two-floored museum located in the eastern district of Slateport. The museum was built by Captain Stern to teach others of the ocean and the ocean floor. There is a PokémonDollar.png50 entrance fee which must be paid upon entry. The first floor contains information about the sea. There are seven exhibits, each with a different piece of information about the sea. On the western wing, there are experiments and displays involving Whirlpools, Waterfalls, buoyancy, and fossilization. While, on the eastern wing, there are displays and samples of ancient beach sand, and old sedimentary rocks, as well as fun facts about the sea. On the second floor, there are nine more exhibits, which include models of the Hoenn region and the ship S.S. Anne. The museum can be entered free of charge before Team Magma or Team Aqua leave, as the reception believes that the player is part of their group. However, it only works if he/she lacks the money needed for the PokémonDollar.png50 fee, which will prompt the receptionist to believe that the player is part of either Team Magma or Team Aqua.

Pokémon Fan Club

Main article: Pokémon Fan Club

Slateport is the home to the headquarters for the Hoenn branch of the Pokémon Fan Club. The Fan Club is basically a place for people to meet and chat about their favorite Pokémon and to show off their collections to each other. In general, the members are usually more oriented to unevolved, cute Pokémon and Pokémon Contests than Pokémon battles. The people in the Fan Club adore their Pokémon and give friendly advice. One of the women in the fan club will give away a Soothe Bell if the player's Pokémon has a high happiness. In Emerald, people show off their Pokémon in Contests because the Pokémon Contest hall in Lilycove City is too far to travel. Gabby and Ty often visit the Club House in Hoenn to do interviews with enthusiastic Trainers. Trainers of the Poké Fan Trainer class are members of the Pokémon Fan Club. The Hoenn Pokémon Fan Club Chairman sits in the center of the club house. He claims to have raised over 100 different Pokémon in his lifetime. He travels across the nation on his Fearow.

Stern's Shipyard

Main article: Stern's Shipyard

Stern's Shipyard is a building owned by Captain Stern. Stern's Shipyard is a large brown building located next to the ocean. In front of the building are two houses, and around the building are three small wooden boats. It is located in the eastern part of Slateport City, and is where the S.S. Tidal was constructed. The Shipyard also takes old boats and sinks them, to make habitats for the Pokémon who live around the city and its neighboring beaches.

Slateport Harbor

The Harbor is located at the northeast of Slateport. This is where Captain Stern can be found most of the time, trading the Scanner for a DeepSeaScale or DeepSeaTooth. Events such as the stealing of Submarine Explorer 1 by Team AquaSE/MagmaR take place there. After entering the Hall of Fame, Captain Stern is here, asking the player to go on a cruise on the S.S. Tidal.

Name Rater

Main article: Name Rater

The Name Rater of Hoenn lives in northern district of Slateport City. As always, he allows Trainers to change the nickname of any Pokémon they captured or received in-game. Those traded from outside sources will not be able to be renamed. If the Pokémon was caught by the player that currently owns it, he'll say that the name could be better and offer the player the option of changing it. If the Pokémon he's judging was obtained via a trade, he will say that the name is perfect and refuse to change it. However, if both players have identical Trainer IDs and secret IDs, he will allow name changes.

Pokémon Contest Hall

The Hyper Rank Pokémon Contest is located in Slateport. Only Pokémon who have beaten the Super Rank can perform here. It is replaced by the Battle Tent in Emerald.

Battle Tent

Main article: Battle Tent

The Battle Tent can only be found in Pokémon Emerald. It is one of the three Battle Tents found in Emerald. Entrants pick out three Pokémon from a list of 6 random rentals, all at level 30. Then, three Trainers battle, having a chance after each battle to possibly trade a Pokémon for one from the person that was just defeated.

Beach

The beach is the first section of Slateport City that the player explores and disembarks Mr. Briney's ship here as part of the storyline. There are many Tubers here, hiding under umbrellas and waiting for a battle. In the house on the west side of the beach, a man inside will offer six bottles of Soda Pop once all the Trainers in the room are defeated.

Demographics

Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire

The population of Slateport City is 76, making it the second largest city in Hoenn, behind Lilycove City. Slateport City's high population can be attributed to a number of reasons, including its market, beach, and shipyard.

In the anime

Slateport City
Slateport City's Contest stadium

In the anime, Slateport City is a large city on a cliff overlooking a beautiful beach. Ash and company visited it during Now That's Flower Power! to The Spheal of Approval. May entered her first Pokémon Contest and met up with her first Pokémon Contest rival, Drew. In The Spheal of Approval, Ash and Max visited the Oceanic Museum and met Captain Stern, but they were caught in an attack by Team Magma.

Slateport City is also the location of the Hoenn Grand Festival in the anime, and was revisited from Hi Ho Silver Wind! to Rhapsody in Drew. Additionally, Slateport City is Harley's hometown.

Trivia

  • Slateport's Japanese motto is ヒトと ポケモンが いきかう みなと "The port where people and Pokémon cross paths".
  • In the anime, Slateport City is the hometown of one of May's rivals, Harley.
  • As Hoenn coincides with Kyushu, Slateport coincides with Nagasaki's location.
  • Though the beach that lies south of Slateport appears to be a part of it, the beach shares the same music and is technically a part of Route 109.
