HopHopHop Town (Japanese: ヨヨヨタウン YoYoYo Town) is an anime-exclusive location in the Kanto region. It is a suburb located close to Celadon City.

Bearing a closer resemblance to a city, the urban town is made up mostly of large buildings and skyscrapers. It is shown to have a large Pokémon Center. Despite the lack of greenery around the streets, a blooming garden is located on top of one of the enormous skyscrapers inhabited by a Drowzee and Hypno. A very similar garden would later appear in Curbing the Crimson Tide, although no references were made to link the two areas.

HopHopHop Town was featured in Hypno's Naptime. Ash and his friends learned that several children had gone missing in the city, and several Pokémon were suffering from fatigue. With the help of Officer Jenny, they were able to discover the source of the problem; a group of people suffering from insomnia were using a Hypno to help them fall asleep. After Misty was hypnotized by it, she ran into a park thinking she was a Seel, where all the missing children were discovered, thinking they were Pokémon. Using Drowzee, the children were cured and sent home to their parents.

In addition, HopHopHop Town is where Misty caught her Psyduck. Brock promised Nurse Joy he would take care of it, but changed his mind after seeing it. Psyduck caught itself inside a Poké Ball that Misty accidentally dropped, making it hers.

  • The skyscraper with a mansion at its top where the Pokémon Lover's Club met in HopHopHop Town is similar to the skyscraper with a mansion on its top where Luna lives in Commerce City. Both cities are located in the Kanto region.[1]
