Humilau City in the anime

Humilau City was first mentioned by Jervis in Goodbye, Junior Cup - Hello Adventure! as a suggestion for Cameron's eighth Gym.

The city briefly appeared in the latter part of The Road to Humilau!. Marlon brought Ash and Cameron here through his Wailord after the two were separated from Cilan and Iris and got lost. At the Humilau Gym, Cameron battled Marlon for his eighth Unova Gym Badge and won.

Trivia

  • On the face board featuring a pair of Frillish, the eyes of the male Frillish are incorrectly colored, being the inverse of what they should be.
  • A Lady will say "This dress is comfy and easy to wear...", referencing Youngster Ben from Route 3 in Kanto, who said, "Hi! I like shorts! They're comfy and easy to wear!"
  • A female Swimmer will say "When I float between the waves like this, I'm like a mermaid. Now that I think of it, there was a tomboyish-mermaid Gym Leader in Kanto." This is a clear reference to Misty.
  • After entering the Hall of Fame, when the player stands behind the face board, an NPC will come and take a photo with the player, allowing them to earn the Face Board Memorial Medal.
  • Humilau City appears similar to the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort in the French Polynesia.
