Ruby and Sapphire



  • Mauville City undergoes a significant design overhaul in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, going from a small, eight-building city to a large, mall-like structure. This is due to Wattson based its renovated design on Kalos' Lumiose City.
  • As Hoenn corresponds to Kyūshū, Mauville corresponds to the city of Kumamoto.
  • Mauville City's name comes from "mauve" (a pale pinkish-purple color) and "-ville," a suffix used in city names. Kinsetsu City, its Japanese name, may come from 菫 (kin, violet).
  • In generation VI, Mauville replaced Lilycove City as the largest city in the Hoenn region.
