イカズチタウン Ikazuchi Town
|Debut||An Electrifying Rage!|
According to local legend, long ago, a thunderstorm caused by the Legendary Pokémon Zapdos caused a large tree in the center of town to split in two. To the townsfolk's surprise, after being burnt by Zapdos's electricity, the tree grew taller than it even had before, and bore many fruit. Since that day, the people of Joule Town have held the Zapdos Festival, in the hopes that Zapdos would visit again to bless the town with fertility. According to Clemont, the festival also celebrates Electric-type Pokémon.
Ash and his friends wanted to go to this town to attend the Zapdos Festival, but a thunderstorm created by Zapdos appeared and they halted their trip. Ash later brought the medicine here after Stan requested the group to do so. Ash was reunited in this town with his friends and showed them his newly evolved Noivern who was eating some fruit in the tree. The group then watched the firework show and saw a glimpse of Zapdos flying in the sky.
