Hotel Couriway

Main article: Kalos hotels

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

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 Friday.

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

Couriway Town Showcase theater

In the anime, Ash and his friends arrived in Couriway Town in A Dancing Debut!. During their visit, they met up with Nini again.

Like many other towns in the Kalos region, Couriway Town is home to a Pokémon Showcase theater, attracting several Pokémon Performers who have not yet collected the required Princess Keys to join the Master Class. The event was watched by Palermo.

Serena, along with her rivals Jessie and Nini, entered the town's Showcase Rookie Class eager to win. During the Theme Performance, which consisted of baking Poké Puffs while simultaneously performing a dance routine along with their Pokémon, they all did a good job and were allowed to advance to the second section, the Freestyle Performance.

There, Nini performed alongside her Smoochum, Gothita, and Farfetch'd, while Jessie delivered a performance that left the crowd very impressed along with her Gourgeist and Wobbuffet. For this event, Serena decided it was time for Eevee to make her Showcase debut, and used her along with Braixen. Their performance was going well until Eevee's stage fright got the best of her, causing her to lose her balance. Despite this, they still managed to put it together at the end.

However, this was not enough to make up for their mistake, and when it came time for the audience to vote on the Performer who had performed the best, a majority voted for Jessie, who earned her first Princess Key from Monsieur Pierre as a reward.

Trivia

  • After the battle with Professor Sycamore, he mentions that he left something in the town for the player. An inscription can be found on one of the seats on the train station platform. It contains a message which Sycamore wrote, addressed to himself in the future.
"To the person reading this: What are you like now? Did you become who you wanted to be? For starters, what was the person you wanted to become even like? I don't know, but it would be wonderful if you can boast that you're living each day to the fullest. To future Sycamore. From the Sycamore dreaming of the future."
  • Couriway Town and Camphrier Town have the same background music.
  • The architecture of Couriway Town features timber framing that are typically found in Germany and the Alsace region of France. In the anime, Couriway Town appears to be modeled after the commune of Colmar in Alsace, particularly on the Little Venice quarter in the old town district.
