Camphrier Town (Japanese: コボクタウンKoboku Town) is a town located in the central Kalosregion.
The northern part of town houses Shabboneau Castle, a large castle once home to a generous king, surrounded by a moat. The current caretaker of the castle is responsible for waking a sleeping Snorlax that appears on Route 7 once a year, using a Poké Flute. 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 cobblestone paths and tall, enclosing stone walls lend the town an atmosphere of age and history.
The citizens of Camphrier Town are known to be generous towards tourists, handing out welcoming gifts such as Berry Juice. Notably, the town also has a culture of Berry farming with the use of fertilizer on the Berry fields just outside of town. A Berry farming couple from Camphrier Town moved to the Alola region to promote this form of Berry farming, and can be found in the Berry fields on Melemele Island.
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.
Pokémon X and Y
The population of Camphrier Town is 20, making it a medium-sized town.
These items can be obtained from the rotating guests appearing at Hotel Camphrier, 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.
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 snoring loudly, 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.
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.
In Morphing Manectric, after helping the group to defeat their opponents, Cassius took them 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.
