Location of Camphrier Town in Kalos.

Camphrier Town (Japanese: コボクタウン Koboku Town) is a town located in the central Kalos region.

The northern part of town houses Shabboneau Castle, a large castle surrounded by a moat. Hotel Camphrier is also located in the town and offers a place for visitors to rest. The town is also home to Cassius, who operates the Kalos region's Pokémon Storage System. The citizens of Camphrier Town are known to be generous towards tourists. The town's cobblestone paths and tall, enclosing stone walls lend to its atmosphere of age.

To the east of the town lies Route 5, while to its west lies Route 7.

Slogan

A town where you can taste the ages. (Japanese: 枯れた 味わいの 町 A town with a feeling of deep age.)

Places of interest

Shabboneau Castle

Main article: Shabboneau Castle

Shabboneau Castle is a former manor that used to belong to a noble family, who had the habit of giving a lot of their possessions away, leaving the building very barren and empty.

The player and Shauna first visit the castle to ask its owner about Mega Evolution, but are unable to get any information, as the owner has no idea what Mega Evolution even is.

Name Rater

Kalos's Name Rater can be found inside the Pokémon Center of Camphrier Town.

Hotel Camphrier

Main article: Kalos hotels

On the second floor of Hotel Camphrier, a group of travelers will rotate in and out of the rooms. Any of the travelers not at Hotel Camphrier on one day may be found at the hotels in Ambrette Town, Cyllage City, Geosenge Town, Coumarine City, and Couriway Town.

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 Tuesday.

Mr. Bonding also initially occupies the third room, granting the player the Sp. Atk. Power O-Power when spoken to.

In the anime

Camphrier Town in the anime

Camphrier Town appeared in Awakening the Sleeping Giant!. Every year, a Snorlax visits the town to eat the crop stubble after the harvest. Aside from getting rid of what would otherwise be a waste product, Snorlax would also incidentally plow the ground in readiness for the next harvest. As thanks, Camphrier Town hosts an annual harvest festival in Snorlax's honor. The town offers Snorlax much of its fresh produce and the Lord of Shabboneau Castle plays the Poké Flute to wake the Snorlax. Snorlax, with its stomach now full, returns to the mountain, only to return in time for the following year's harvest.

When Ash and his friends came to visit Camphrier Town, they found the Snorlax causing loud noises, and learned that Lord Shabboneau refused to play the flute for this year. They visited Shabboneau Castle and discovered that Lord Shabboneau had lost the flute to Princess Allie of Parfum Palace. They went to reclaim it and ultimately delivered it back to Lord Shabboneau, who played the flute to awaken Snorlax.

In the manga

Camphrier Town in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Camphrier Town first appeared in Overthrowing a Tyrunt, where Cassius was seen being contacted by Bill when he heard commotion coming from the outskirts of the town, caused by X's friends battling against a group of Espurr that a Team Flare Grunt had left behind to fight them. After helping the group to defeat their opponents, Cassius took the group to his house and introduced them to his gang, including an orphan girl named Emma, who had adopted one of the Espurr from before. Later Cassius offered to escort X and his friends to Cyllage City to keep them safe from Team Flare, which they accepted.
