Location
Hoenn Fortree City Map.png
Location of Fortree City in Hoenn.

Fortree City (Japanese: ヒワマキシティ Hiwamaki City) is a city, roughly between Mauville and Lilycove, in the Hoenn region. To its west are Route 119 and the Weather Institute, and to its east Route 120 and the Safari Zone. The city's motto is "The Treetop City that Frolics with Nature."

The residents of Fortree City live in treehouses and get around by a system of rope bridges that hang in the treetops. Due to the physical exertion needed for such a lifestyle, they are all healthy and fit, and by preserving Fortree's natural environment they are able to live nearer to wild Pokémon than the residents of most other cities. Wild Bug-type Pokémon often fly in through the windows, and from time to time wild Kecleon will block paths in the city. The heavy rainfall saturates the soil and lets the trees grow tall.

Slogan

The treetop city that frolics with nature. (Japanese: きの うえで しぜんと たわむれる まち The treetop city that frolics with nature.)

Places of interest

Residential houses

A woman in one of the houses of Fortree City will give away TM10 (Hidden Power) if the player can guess which hand she is hiding a coin in three times. Also in Pokémon Emerald, in this same house there is an old man who will teach a compatible Pokémon Sleep Talk one time only.

A boy in one of the houses will trade his Skitty (nicknamed Skitit) for a Pikachu in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, and his Plusle (nicknamed Pluses) for a Volbeat in Pokémon Emerald. In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Elyssa will trade her Skitty (nicknamed Skitit) for a Spinda.

Desk and chair shop

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, there is a shop in the southeastern corner of Fortree City that sells a variety of Secret Base decorations. There are two counters, the one on the left is selling desks and the one on the right is selling chairs.

Secret Base Guild

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Secret Base decoration shop is replaced with the Secret Base Guild. This is where the player can meet and battle Aarune, and also serves as a place to buy Secret Base decorations from. Some items are only available after the player has achieved a certain rank for their Secret Base team.

Fortree Gym

Main article: Fortree Gym

The Fortree Gym is the official Gym of Fortree City. Fortree's Gym Leader, Winona, uses Flying-type Pokémon. When defeated, she awards the challenger the Feather Badge, which allows the player to use Fly outside of battle, as well as TM40 (Aerial Ace) in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald and TM19 (Roost) in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Fortree Gym is inaccessible at first due to an invisible Kecleon blocking the path; the player must use the Devon Scope, given to the player on Route 120 by Steven, to gain access to the Gym.

Ash and his friends arrived in Fortree City in Who's Flying Now?, just in time for its annual Feather Carnival, where people celebrate wild Flying-type Pokémon. During the festivities, they met Winona, the local Gym Leader, who was giving out rides on her giant Skarmory. James also encountered the Magikarp salesman, who sold him what he claimed to be a Chimecho, which James had wanted since his childhood, but turned out to be a disguised Hoppip. Soon after, James however came across a real Chimecho, which happily joined his team. Team Rocket later gatecrashed the festivities and attempted to steal all of the Flying Pokémon, though Winona, Ash, and his friends intervened. The interruption, however, meant that Ash's scheduled Gym battle had to be rescheduled for the following day.

In Sky High Gym Battle!, Ash had his battle against Winona and defeated her, earning his sixth Hoenn League Badge.

Ruby & Sapphire chapter

Fortree City debuted in Short Shift for Shiftry, where a meeting between the Gym Leaders of Hoenn took place there. Although Flannery had been the one to arrange the meeting following Mt. Chimney becoming dormant, it was held in Fortree due to Winona being responsible on supervising the other Hoenn Gym Leaders. Tate and Liza were unable to attend the meeting, due to them having to guard the Red and Blue Orbs on Mt. Pyre. Wallace, who was attending business in Fallarbor Town, participated the meeting via webcam. The Gym Leaders voted on whether to side with Team Magma or Team Aqua, but Norman refused to cast the deciding vote, choosing to remain neutral, and proceeded to leave the meeting.

In I Dare Ya, Altaria... Knock Chic off My Shoulder, Sapphire arrived in Fortree and challenged Winona to a Gym battle, only to be defeated, although Winona did agree to coach her. Soon after, Ruby arrived in Fortree as well with Wallace. Ruby and Sapphire wound up getting into an argument, following which Ruby left Fortree on his own in Master Class with Masquerain, forcing Wallace to chase him. Sapphire, meanwhile, trained with Winona until she earned the Feather Badge.

In The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon II, the Gym Leaders learned of the tsunami that had flooded Dewford, Slateport, and Littleroot, following Kyogre's awakening. In The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon III, Groudon's awakening caused Fortree to be struck by a massive heat wave, withering all local plant life. The Pokémon Association Chairman subsequently ordered all the Gym Leaders present to head out to deal with the threat.
