Alto Mare (Japanese: アルトマーレ Altomare), also known as the City of Water (Japanese: 水の都 City of Water), is an anime-exclusive location and the setting of the fifth and final original series movie, Pokémon Heroes: Latios & Latias.
In the anime
The Tour de Alto Mare, a water chariot race, is held annually. Trainers race on floating platforms pulled by their Pokémon. One year, the competition was won by Misty and her Corsola. Winners are awarded a medal, depicting Latias and Latios.
It is also the site of Alto Mare Museum, where it exhibits the Defense Mechanism of Alto Mare (DMA). The fossil of pre-historic Pokémon, such as Aerodactyl and Kabutops can also be seen in the museum's floor. Lorenzo and his granddaughter, Bianca, are the caretakers of the museum.
The Secret Garden, where Latias and Latios reside, is found near the museum. Located in a small pond is the Soul Dew. If removed, it can be used to control the DMA, but this will cause all the water to drain from the city. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the two Eon Pokémon to protect the Soul Dew.
