What is the largest population recorded so far for any city? I ask because I did a tally and Mauville City has a Min population of 125 not including Winona or Pokémon and a Max of 133 also not including Winona or Pokémon. If Pokémon are included, the number is 138 min 147 max not counting Winona. The reason for the population discrepancy is due to multiple NPCs disappearing after certain events. (Giddy and the others, the powerless man, 2 guys from the food court) also Winona changes places with a wild Taillow, so the Pokémon population also fluctuates. If Mauville takes first in largest population this should be put in the trivia. Yamitora1 (talk) 19:36, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

That's not the most by a mile. Lumiose City has Mauville beat nearly 3 times over. (Not sure how accurate the number given is, I haven't looked at my own data recently or tried to double-check it like I've intended.) Tiddlywinks (talk) 19:58, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
I thought it was Castelia City for some stupid reason, though I do remember now that it's Lumiose City. Nonetheless, at the former, I got this: "Castelia City's population is 127. Castelia City is the third most populous city in the Pokémon world, behind Lumiose City and Nimbasa City while beating Goldenrod City's population of 126." The data is therefore like this:
  • Lumiose City: 416
  • Nimbasa City: 150 (an allowance is made for the sports stadiums to possibly have 239)
  • Castelia City: 127
  • Goldenrod City: 126
That said, I have not seen a population estimate for the current Mauville City. If it falls in the top 5, it will certainly be noted, I am sure. I don't doubt that the population has indeed gone up. CycloneGU (talk) 01:07, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
After recounting (due to missing a old lady) the current count for Mauville in ORAS is 126 people MIN. So right there it ties with Goldenrod if you only use the Min.
  • 21 people in the outskirts of the city. (standing in public, at their booths, or shopping in the booths)
  • 20 people in the food court (without lines.)
  • 5 people in Crooner's Café
  • 6 people in the Gym
  • 8 people in the TV Station
  • 2 people in Rydel Bikes
  • 4 people in the Battle Mettle
  • 4 people in the Inverse Battle Shop
  • 7 people in the Town Square
  • 4 people in the Pokémon center (Not including Giddy or the other 4 who disappeared)
  • 5 people in the Poké Mart
86 total people
2F Mauville Hills
  • 4 people in the stairwells
  • 4 people in the hallways
  • 3 people in Apt. 1
  • 1 person in Apt. 2
  • 1 person in Apt. 5
  • 1 person in Apt. 6
  • 3 people in Apt. 7
  • 1 person in Apt. 9
  • 1 person in Apt. 10
  • 1 person in Apt. 12
  • 1 person in Apt. 13
  • 1 person in Apt. 14
  • 1 person on the Apt 14 balcony
22 total people
3F: - 18 people
86 + 22 + 18 = 126
This count is only of every NPC currently in Mauville City within my game after several NPCs have disappeared (Giddy, Mr. Bonding, the people in line at the Food Court and the kid who explains the food court) Yamitora1 (talk) 10:25, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
You miscounted. It's 23 people you've listed for 2F (Mauville Hills), so the count therefore would be 127 providing the details are accurate. Also, I believe there's a pending error here; the home of the O-Power Brothers has, I think, at least five (I have four in the home now and a fifth in the Pokémon Center, who I think waits for you to enter the Hall of Fame), so I think you're counting one of them in that building and not in his apartment.
That is also a pain to read, so I hope you don't mind that I have taken it upon myself to make your message more readable (it's clear you intended everything to appear on their own lines from the source data, and "Apt. 10 1" is REALLY confusing). It should now be easier for anyone else coming upon it. Feel free to revert it back if you prefer it being a paragraph. CycloneGU (talk) 16:25, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

its all those 1's, its easy to lose track of them lol. Also I'm not counting giddy or any NPC that leaves mauville for the the minimum population count, they and all other NPCs that eventually disappear would be counted in the maximum population count.

Anyways, it would seem that Mauville outranks Goldenrod, even if by one person. Yamitora1 (talk) 11:13, 30 December 2014 (UTC)


There is more than one thing that I'm considering to add to the trivia section. Apparently, the vacant units in Mauville Hills serve no functional purpose. Is it worth mentioning that these locked vacant units could be reserved for more sets of special Super Secret Bases, which are unlocked by scanning QR codes, in the same way that the locked door in Mossdeep City is reserved for the set of Junichi Masuda, Shōko Nakagawa, Shigeki Morimoto, and Shigeru Ohmori's secret bases? This is not confirmed, which I why I want to list it as a possibility and not as a fact.

There are a lot of interesting things to point out about Mauville Hills, mostly. "The man with no power," who lives in one of the Mauville Hills units, could have once worked at Sea Mauville. If you read one of the bookshelves within Sea Mauville, you will notice that the author is depressed about his not having been able to defend those who worked under him, repeating that he is "a man with no power." The possibility that "the man with no power" at Mauville Hills once had a job at Sea Mauville is an interesting thing to point out. I think an image comparing these two things would help, but I unfortunately don't know how to take fancy, high-quality pictures of these things and post them here.

There's more. On the second floor of Mauville City, an old man sits on a bench, remembering painfully about a worker whom he had to fire in the past for screwing up. The old man mentions that he received several letters to that worker from a family member, long after the worker lost his job. These letters from the family member could be those of Professor Cozmo, who wrote to his father, Raizoh, who worked at Sea Mauville, a place that has a deep connection with Mauville City. The old man on the bench at the 2nd floor of Mauville City is very likely to have worked at Sea Mauville and fired Raizoh for losing the Odd Keystone that was imported from Oreburgh City in Sinnoh. That's a lot of information, probably because I can't decide whether to post it under the "Sea Mauville" page or this one. I feel it's worth mentioning, though, since it reveals more about the history of locations such as Sea Mauville.

Until we have evidence to support that theory, we should not put it in the article (also, text dumps have stuff for the Mossdeep Secret Base, but nothing for any potential ones for Mauville Hills). --SnorlaxMonster 08:33, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
