Mulberry City (Japanese: カジノキシティ Kajinoki City) is an anime-exclusive location in Kanto. It is located between Tohjo Falls and Pewter City. Like many other cities in the region, it has a Contest Hall, making it a popular destination among Pokémon Coordinators.
It was first mentioned in All That Glitters is not Golden!, in which May learned that a Pokémon Contest was scheduled to take place there after seeing a poster advertising it on a restaurant. In New Plot, Odd Lot!, Ash and his friends arrived in Mulberry City.
The Mulberry Contest was the last one before the start of the Kanto Grand Festival, so many of the contestants were competing for their fifth Ribbon, including May. Harley, due to having five Ribbons already, decided to help Team Rocket defeat May by lending his Cacturne and Banette to Jessie, who was entered as "Jessebella".
In the Appeals Round, May used her Combusken while Jessebella used Cacturne. The two managed to deliver performances that impressed the Contest Judges, thus advancing to the Battle Stage, which took place in the next episode. They were able to defeat their opponents to reach the final round, where they battled one another. At the end of the five-minute time limit, the two had the same amount of points, and the battle had to go into sudden-death overtime. Eventually, May defeated Jessebella and earned her fifth Ribbon, thus qualifying for the Grand Festival.
During the competition, James and Meowth trapped Ash, Max, and Brock in a box, but they were freed by Drew and his Flygon.
