Debut Zoroark: Master of Illusions

Crown City (Japanese: クラウンシティ Crown City) is an anime-exclusive location in the Sinnoh region and the setting of Zoroark: Master of Illusions.


Twenty years prior, a disaster caused all plant life in Crown City to die out. That was also the last time before the present that Celebi had appeared in the city. Fortunately, with the help of both humans and Pokémon working together, the city was brought back to its beautiful state.

Ash and his friends visit the city to watch the Pokémon Baccer World Cup. Along the way, they meet a Pokémon named Zorua and decide to help it search for its "Meema." Meema is Zoroark, who has been blackmailed by businessman Grings Kodai into creating the illusion of the city's destruction in the forms of Raikou, Entei and Suicune.

The Legendary beasts are considered the city's protectors. In the film, Shiny versions of the trio had sensed the city was in danger while Zoroark was destroying it in illusions of its destruction, and raced to Crown City to defend it. After Zoroark broke free of her prison when she had been recaptured by Kodai, the legendary beasts appear before the Illusion Fox Pokémon and attacked her, believing her to be responsible for the city's destruction. When the misunderstanding is resolved thanks to the local wild Pokémon who live in the city, the legendary beasts aided Zoroark in the final battle against Kodai.

Crown City made a brief reappearance in I Choose You!, which is set in a timeline different from the main series.
