Emeragrove Town (Japanese: タジキタウン Tajiki Town) is an anime-exclusive location in the Sinnoh region. It is a small, quaint town located between Hearthome City and Solaceon Town. It was featured in Once There Were Greenfields.
While on their way toward Veilstone City, Ash and his friends stopped by Emeragrove Town, where they encountered the Eterna City Gym Leader Gardenia, who was visiting Emeragrove to promote Pokémon battles for young kids to see.
Ash and Dawn had a Tag Battle against Gardenia and James, using their Aipom and Pachirisu against Gardenia's Turtwig and James's Cacnea. After the battle, which ended in a victory for the team of Ash and Dawn, Gardenia offered to train Cacnea so it could master its unreliable Drain Punch.
After some soul searching and a training session with Ash, James realized his Cacnea would be better off with Gardenia and agreed to let her train it.
