Places of interest
The Ambrette Fossil Lab is a laboratory that specializes in reviving fossilized Pokémon remains back into living Pokémon. Various fossils, anthropological and astronomical items and materials line the shelves near the back walls and entrance. Among the items stored here are several meteorites which can be used to change Deoxys between its Formes. A Hiker will also award the player the Burn, Chill, Douse and Shock Drives if shown a Genesect.
The Ambrette Aquarium is a two-story public aquarium with no entry fee. It also serves as the connecting point between Ambrette Town, Route 8 and the coastline. Several patrons walk around on the two levels, enjoying the various aquariums on the upper entrance floor. On the lower level sits a large Magikarp statue, with the exit leading out to Route 8. If the player talks to the Fisherman next to the statue, he will give the player an Old Rod.
Six travelers will rotate among the first room on a six-day cycle: a Hiker, a Waiter, a Madame, a Maid, a male Tourist, and a Backpacker (in that order); as the player talks to these travelers on different days (at any hotel), they will gradually open up to the player. A female Tourist who gives out Ribbons will also occupy the second room every Monday.
Mr. Bonding also initially occupies the third room, granting the player the Sp. Def. Power O-Power when spoken to.
Pokémon X and Y
The population of Ambrette Town is 27, making it the largest town in Kalos.
These items can be obtained from the rotating guests appearing at Hotel Ambrette, provided the player has met the same guest on three other occasions. These guests can be met at any hotel located outside of Lumiose City.
A colored background means that the Pokémon can be found in this location in the specified game. A white background with a colored letter means that the Pokémon cannot be found here.

Ambrette Town in the anime
In Going for the Gold!, Ash and his friends arrived at Ambrette Town and were met with a spectacular view of the sea. As Bonnie and some of the group's Pokémon played in the ocean, Serena suggested that they should visit the Ambrette Aquarium. There they saw many species of Water Pokémon up close. Later they heard about the town's legend of a GoldenMagikarp, and helped the aquarium's director Rodman fish for it. They didn't manage to catch it, but did catch a glimpse of it.
