The player character can ride the Gogoat Shuttle in the city as their mode of transportation. The player character may also ride the Lumi Cab for even faster, but more expensive transportation.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U
Lumiose City was confirmed to appear as a stage for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U for the Nintendo 3DS version and Sakurai mentions in Miiverse that the fighters will be fighting on Prism Tower.
- 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 is the largest city in Kalos with 416 inhabitants, and by far, the largest and most populated city in the Pokemon world.
- 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 Lumiose City outskirts would instantly corrupt the save file and freeze the game. If it occurred, players 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.
- If the player character went to the second floor of an unnamed building, a supposed "Ghost figure" of a Hex Maniac would come out of the elevator, walk by the player character and say "No, you're not the one", before disappearing. This Hex Maniac cannot be encountered again. This has led to a series of Creepypasta videos called the "Lumiose Ghost Girl" with origins of why she is there. Also in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire in Mt. Pyre, a Hex Maniac will say the exact same words to the player character.
- 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 on the final episode. (This was also the setting of the Flare incident in the XYZ season).
