Santalune City is the first city that the player character will visit in the Kalos region. The city is the home of Gym Leader Viola, the first Gym Leader that can be battled against. She specializes in Bug-type Pokémon. The player character will also meet Viola's big sister Alexa, who will guide the player character toward the gym. A fountain, which has a metal sculpture of Roselia, can also be found in the upper part of the city. The player character will receive the Roller Skates from a skater in front of the Gym if they defeat her in battle.
