Lilycove City is a city located in the northeastern part of the Hoenn region, connected by Route 124 in the east and Route 121 in the west. The Lilycove Department Store is located here, as well as a Contest Hall, the Pokémon Fan Club, and the Lilycove Museum. Until the player character defeats Team Aqua/Team Magma in their hideout in the eastern part of the city, the way to Route 124 is blocked by a bunch of Wailmer.

Lilycove City has a total population of 123 in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, 138 in Pokémon Emerald and 106 in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.


Ash and his friends arrived in Lilycove City in Pokéblock, Stock, and Berry. Originally, they were just passing through the city because it was en route to Mossdeep City, the location of Ash's next Gym battle. However, after May saw a poster advertising an upcoming Pokémon Contest, scheduled to be held in the city the next day, they decided to stay in Lilycove so May could compete for her third Ribbon.

During the Ever Grande Conference later on, Ash battles Lilycove native Katie in the first round of the full battle stage. Despite Katie's main strategy putting Ash in an early hole, Ash manages to emerge victorious in the end.
