Also known as the City of Light, Lumiose City has a unique structural design. It is a big, circular city that is divided into multiple sections:
- South Boulevard, running the south edge of the city.
- North Boulevard, running the north edge of the city.
- Vernal Avenue, connecting the south to the center.
- Estival Avenue, connecting the west to the center.
- Autumnal Avenue, connecting the northwest to the center.
- Hibernal Avenue, connecting the northeast to the center.
- Bleu Plaza, connecting Vernal Avenue to Estival Avenue.
- Magenta Plaza, connecting Estival Avenue to Autumnal Avenue.
- Rouge Plaza, connecting Autumnal Avenue to Hibernal Avenue.
- Jaune Plaza, connecting Hibernal Avenue to the southeast side of the canal.
- Vert Plaza, connecting the southeast side of the canal to Vernal Avenue.
- Centrico Plaza, being the center of the city.
Additionally, there are numerous alleys running across the avenues and the two boulevards. The alleys branching from the boulevards always lead to a dead end, while those running across the avenues are long and may even contain Trainers.
During the first visit to the city, there is a shortage caused by Team Flare's actions in Kalos Power Plant. As a result, the player may only access the South Boulevard and Vernal Avenue until Team Flare has been defeated in the Power Plant.
Lumiose City is also where the post-game storyline, the Looker chapters, takes place.

said to possess.
Discussed it with a top Breeder who's very familiar
with the ecology of the Pokémon and drew the
In order to cause a steam explosion powerful

That kind of organ is unheard of in the ecology

Lumiose City also offers an international airport that has flights serving Kanto, Hoenn, and other regions within the Pokémon world. A battlefield is available on the airport's observation deck for Trainers wishing to battle while waiting for their flight.
- Like Kalos being based on France, Lumiose City is based on France's capital city, Paris. The Prism Tower is based on the Eiffel Tower and the plaza's names are colors in French.
- Lumiose City's name may be derived from Paris's nickname, "La Ville-Lumière", which means "The City of Light".
- There used to be a glitch where saving in the boulevards of Lumiose City would instantly corrupt the save file and freeze the game. If it occurred, the player would have to format the save and start over. It was particularly easy to encounter, as unsuspecting players would be tempted to save in what is easily the largest and most disorienting city in Kalos.
- As a result of this, Nintendo released an updated version of the game to stop the glitch, and players who were affected by this glitch could continue their Pokémon adventure.
- In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire in Mt. Pyre 1F, the Hex Maniac would say "No, you not the one" to the player character when talked to, similar to the Hex Maniac the player would encounter in the unnamed office building west of Route 14 gate.
- In the anime series, this is the location where Ash's Kalos journey both begins and ends as he arrived in the first episode and departed in the final episode. This was also the setting of the Flare incident in the XYZ season.
- When the Power Plant's power has been restored and the Prism Tower is lit up, Shauna will say that Clemont and Bonnie are her friends.
