Ryme City (Japanese: ライムシティ Ryme City) is the setting of the game Detective Pikachu and the movie of the same name.

Home to many people and Pokémon, the city is most famous for the annual Pokémon Carnival, its largest festival which attracts world-class ships such as the S.S. Prime Treasure to observe it. It is also connected by a ferry service which runs once a day to Cappucci Island. The Pokémon Comprehensive Laboratory, which researches the abilities of Pokémon and has developed various inventions, is located on a mountain pass to the northwest of the city.

Although its location relative to other regions is unknown, the mention of Pokémon Trainers, Pokémon Rangers, Pokémon Contests, and the Alola region indicate that it is located in the same world as the core series games.
