Location of Driftveil City in Unova.

Driftveil City (Japanese: ホドモエシティ Hodomoe City) is a major ocean port city in western Unova. It has strong wind currents popular with sailboaters. More importantly, its ports are used by freighters and fishing boats that import and export goods such as vegetables in and out of Unova. A large market offering some useful items occupies part of the city. Driftveil is typically subject to precipitation year-round.

The city has two possible entrances on foot: from Route 6 and from the Driftveil Drawbridge, which leads to Unova's central peninsula.
