Lavaridge Town is a location introduced in Generation III.


Lavaridge Town is a town located at the foothills of Mt. Chimney, accessible only by going down the Mt. Chimney via Jagged Pass other than soaring and flying. The Lavaridge Pokémon Center is connected to a hot spring, which is what Lavaridge Town is famous for all over the Hoenn region. An old lady in front of the hot springs gives the player character/protagonist a Pokémon Egg, which hatches into Wynaut. She will give you another Egg afterwards, which hatches into a Togepi. The Gym Leader of Lavaridge is Flannery, who uses Fire-type Pokémon.

  • The elderly lady staying in the Ambrette Hotel makes a reference to Lavaridge Town, since Ambrette Town has no hot springs.
  • The old ladies in the hot spring are exclusive to Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald.
  • Lavaridge Town's name comes from "lava" (molten rock once it reaches the surface, as well as a shade of red) and "ridge" (a raised land formation). Fuen Town, its Japanese name, comes from 楓 (fū, maple, often associated with red) and 炎 (en, flame)
  • Lavaridge Town is based on the cities of Aso and Beppu, the latter being well known for its hot springs referred to as the Hells of Beppu.
