From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Rota (Japanese: ロータ Rota) is an anime-exclusive location and one of the settings of the third Advanced Generation series movie, Lucario and the Mystery of Mew. It is a town located in northern Kanto, and was, in ancient times, an independent kingdom. The town has a medieval theme, resembling historically preserved medieval cities in Europe, although it may just be this way because of the annual "hero of the year" festival that is held during the movie. This festival requires everyone to wear royal clothing and includes a royal ball as well as a battle competition to see who will be the year's Aura Guardian.
Cameran Palace lies north of the town, over a lake, and is connected to the town by a long bridge. It's a great medieval-style castle where Queen Ilene lives, and where Queen Rin, Sir Aaron, and his Lucario lived in ancient times.
The Tree of Beginning can be found a short distance from Rota, along with the site of the biggest battle of the century.
Rota and the Tree of Beginning are located in a mountain range north of Pewter City and Mt. Moon.
