Template:Infobox town

Slateport City (Japanese: カイナシティ Kaina City) is a port town on the southern coast of Hoenn. Its motto is "The Port Where People and Pokémon Cross Paths".

North of Slateport City is Route 110, which has a bicycle route as well as a path to Mauville City. South of the city is the beach of Route 109. East of the city is the ocean path of Route 134, but the water's current is too strong to Surf east.

Slateport was created because the clean water made the food abundant in the area, so a local market started to grow. The city is 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, building the local Oceanic Museum and also working on the S.S. Tidal which runs in and out of Slateport City after its completion.

Slateport is the home to the headquarters for the Hoenn branch of the Pokémon Fan Club. 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.

The Name Rater of Hoenn lives in 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.

The population of Slateport City is 45, making it the third-biggest city in Hoenn, and sixth overall in all regions. Slateport's high population can be attributed to a number of reasons, including its market, beach, and shipyard.

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


  • In anime, Slateport City is the hometown of one of May's rivals, Harley.
