North Boulevard (Japanese: ノースサイド ストリート Northside Street) is a street lining the northern half of Lumiose City in the Kalos region. It connects to South Boulevard, Autumnal Avenue, and Hibernal Avenue. Lumiose Museum is located on this street, serving as a major draw for tourism in the city.

North Boulevard has three gates connecting it to outside routes. In the northwest is the Route 13 Gate, in the north the Route 14 Gate, and in the northeast the Route 16 Gate.

Places of interest

Galette Stand

A small stand located on the North Boulevard outside Autumnal Avenue that sells Lumiose Galettes for $100 ($80 if the player has at least 50 points of style). The stand only sells freshly baked galettes, which last four hours at a time starting at 3 AM, 9 AM, 3 PM, and 9 PM. Once per day, if the player purchases a galette within an hour of the time they were baked, the player will also receive a free Moomoo Milk.

Lumiose Museum

Main article: Lumiose Museum

A large, white building that houses many paintings of people and locations in the Pokémon world. Entrance is free, but an audio guide is available for $200 (or for free if the player has at least 90 points of style).

Hotel Richissime

Main article: Hotel Richissime

A large, black luxury hotel located near the middle of North Boulevard. Each day, the player can be paid for completing certain tasks in the hotel.

Battle Institute

Main article: Battle Institute

The Battle Institute on the North Boulevard works in the same way as the one in Nimbasa City in Unova. The player can opt for a Battle Test (5 consecutive Single or Double Battles) or a Download Test (which can be downloaded either wirelessly or via Wi-Fi at a certain time, similar to event Pokémon). The player can win BP here.

Lumiose Station

A very large train station located on the far eastern half of the North Boulevard. Upon entering the Hall of Fame, Professor Sycamore will meet the player here and give them the TMV Pass which allows them to board the train to Kiloude City.

Looker Bureau

Looker's headquarters during the post-game storyline are located in a narrow street between North Boulevard and Rouge Plaza. It is initially empty, but Looker settles in after the player enters the Hall of Fame and upgrades the Mega Ring.

After completing all the Looker Bureau chapters, the player can battle Emma in the Expansion Suit (as Essentia) here on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

Lumi Cab

Main article: Lumi Cab

Lumi Cab is a taxi service that lets the player travel between many stops around Lumiose City for a fee; destinations that are farther away cost more. If the player has enough style, the fare will be half price. If the player does not have enough money to pay for the ride, the driver will challenge them to a battle.

From North Boulevard, fares range from $710 to $4,000 before any discount.

Gogoat Shuttle

Signposts located around North Boulevard, where the player can ride a Gogoat that will take them to North Boulevard East or North Boulevard West. The fare is flat at $200.


Within Lumiose City, the player has a degree of style which can be raised by doing things around the city. If the player has a high style, prices may be lower, more items and services may be offered, and certain establishments may be accessible that were not before.

  • A woman beside Café Bataille explains that the two Skiddo in front of Lumiose Station were abandoned by their Trainer and wait by the station for his return. This is a possible reference to the story of Hachikō, an Akita dog who waited at the train station every day for his owner's return, even after his unexpected death. The story is a popular legend in Japanese culture.
  • Behind the second TMV timetable in Lumiose Station, some words are written, saying "I'm going to go for help. Wait in the usual place."
  • The train station's design may be based on the Gare du Nord train station in Paris, France, while the TMV appears to be a reference to the TGV.
