In [[XY022]], {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} arrived at Ambrette Town and were met with a spectacular view of the sea. As {{an|Bonnie}} and some of the group's {{p|Pokémon}} played in the ocean, {{an|Serena}} suggested that they should visit the Ambrette Aquarium. There they saw many species of {{t|Water}} Pokémon up close. Later they heard about the town's legend of a {{Shiny|Golden}} {{p|Magikarp}}, and helped the aquarium's director [[Louden]] fish for it. They didn't manage to catch it, but did catch a glimpse of it.
   
Down on the beach, the aquarium director introduces himself as [[Louden]] and his partner, {{p|Clauncher}}. He says he is trying to fish for the real version of the Golden Magikarp. He tells the group of an ancient legend. At a time when fishing by holding your breath was popular, a fisherman was electrocuted by a {{p|Starmie}}, but was saved from drowning by a giant, golden, Magikarp. Since then, there have been occasional reports of the Magikarp being seen again. The director's dream is to capture the Golden Magikarp so that it can be viewed in the aquarium. Team Rocket, back in their uniforms, watch and listen from underwater in a Magikarp submarine, and decide to get the Golden Magikarp for themselves. Up on shore, Louden releases a normal Magikarp and the travelers offer to help him. He gives Ash, Serena, and {{an|Clemont}} rods, and Ash teaches Serena how to fish. Later, Serena reels in a {{p|Corsola}}, but fails to capture it. Bonnie and {{TP|Clemont|Dedenne}} attempt to play with Clauncher, but soon it and Dedenne begin to fight, and Louden tells them that it is not very friendly.

In [[XY023]], the group visited the fossil laboratory in Ambrette Town and got to meet an {{p|Amaura}} and an {{p|Aurorus}}.
 
Team Rocket has made a submarine to look like the Golden Magikarp, and hope to trick the real thing into coming closer so that they can grab it with the submarine's claws. On the beach, Clemont works on a machine that sends out special soundwaves that attract Magikarp so that the fishers can catch them, however, it only manages to attract {{p|Sharpedo}}, which wreck the machine. Underwater in the golden submarine, Team Rocket attempts to catch a {{p|Starmie}}, which promptly electrocutes them. While nothing bites, Clemont unveils another improved machine for the same purpose as before, but it seems to have no reaction. Everyone feels a pull, however, as Team Rocket's submarine gets caught by their lines and surfaces. The group rejoices, thinking they have found the Golden Magikarp, but soon Team Rocket emerges with their {{motto}} and decides to capture the group's Pokémon. The Pokémon at first manage to evade the submarine's claws,but Dedenne is grabbed. Before Ash can send Pikachu, Clauncher begins to attack the claws and rescues Dedenne. Team Rocket takes out {{p|Pumpkaboo}} and {{p|Inkay}}, but Clauncher dodges both of their attacks and Louden commands it to use {{m|Water Gun}}, {{m|Crabhammer}} and {{m|Bubble Beam}}. Ash and Pikachu finish Team Rocket with {{m|Thunderbolt}}
 
 
When the sun sets, the fishers decide to call it a day, and Louden lets the travelers keep the fishing rods. As they thank him, the real Golden Magikarp leaps from the water. Louden promises to have captured the Magikarp by the next time the travelers visit, and waves them off.

Location of Ambrette Town in Kalos.

Ambrette Town (Japanese: コウジンタウン Kōjin Town) is a town located in the Kalos region. It is also the location of Kalos's Fossil Lab, where fossils can be revived into Pokémon.

Places of interest

Fossil Lab

The Ambrette Fossil Lab is a laboratory that specializes in reviving fossilized Pokémon remains back into living Pokémon. Various fossils, anthropological and astronomical items and materials line the shelves near the back walls and entrance. Among the items interned are several meteorites which can be used to change Deoxys between its Formes. A Hiker will also award the player the Burn, Chill, Douse and Shock Drives if shown a Genesect.

Ambrette Aquarium

The Ambrette Aquarium is a two-story public aquarium with no entry fee. It also serves as the connecting point between Ambrette Town, Route 8 and the coastline. Several patrons walk around on the two levels, enjoying the various aquariums on the upper entrance floor. On the lower level sits a large Magikarp statue, with the exit leading out to Route 8. If the player talks to the Fisherman next to the statue, he will give the player an Old Rod.

In the anime

In XY022, Ash and his friends arrived at Ambrette Town and were met with a spectacular view of the sea. As Bonnie and some of the group's Pokémon played in the ocean, Serena suggested that they should visit the Ambrette Aquarium. There they saw many species of Water Pokémon up close. Later they heard about the town's legend of a Golden Magikarp, and helped the aquarium's director Louden fish for it. They didn't manage to catch it, but did catch a glimpse of it.

In XY023, the group visited the fossil laboratory in Ambrette Town and got to meet an Amaura and an Aurorus.

Trivia

  • Ambrette's Japanese motto is 紅く 舞う 土煙 "Dancing cloud of red dust".
  • Ambrette Town has the same background music as Aquacorde Town.
