The Captain's Table

 
Icon of the Captain's Table

The Captain's Table is a famous seafood restaurant in Hulbury. Rose often comes here incognito to eat, but word always gets out about his presence regardless.

After defeating Nessa, the player meets Rose and Sonia at the restaurant.

After becoming Champion, the Cook at the restaurant will request the player to run them a series of food deliveries around Hulbury. The first customer is located in the house next to Hulbury Station, the second one is in the fourth house north of the Pokémon Center, and the third one is at the easternmost stall at the market. Completing all the deliveries earns the player a Lucky Egg.

Demographics

Pokémon Adventures

Sword & Shield chapter

Hulbury first appeared in Chomp!! Defeat Drednaw, where Nessa was informed of the new Gym Challengers endorsed by Leon.

In Watch Out!! Strong Rivals, Bede was seen contacting Oleana, who was in Hulbury with Chairman Rose.

Henry and Casey arrived in Hulbury in PASS08. After training with Marvin for a bit, Henry challenged and beat Nessa. While Casey battled Nessa in PASS09, Chairman Rose invited Henry for a meal at the Captain's Table to celebrate his victory.

In PASS10, Bede tried to contact Chairman Rose after arriving in Hulbury, but was informed by Oleana that she and the Chairman had already left, much to Bede's frustration.

Trivia

  • Hulbury is based on Liverpool, with the statue of the two Toxtricity that protect the town being based on the Liver bird. The Maximizers, the Hulbury-based band that plays during the ending credits, are a homage to The Beatles.
  • A little boy in Hulbury Station mentions the Battle Subway in Unova and wishes that the trains in Galar would do something similar to pass the time.
