Debut Love at First Flight

Lake May (Japanese: ハルカレイク Haruka Lake) is an anime-exclusive location in Hoenn. It is located between Mauville City and Fallarbor Town. There is a small lakeside township, which includes several cabin-style homes and a Pokémon Center.

In Love at First Flight, Ash and his friends stopped by at Lake May because of its famous scenic beauty. The local Nurse Joy then invited them to watch the rehearsals for the May Festival. They met the main performers, Romeo and Juliet, who were training their Volbeat and Illumise for the light show. However, Romeo was particularly nervous, and his clumsiness led the performing troupe to fall into the lake. However, Ash and the others were able to rescue them all.

With their help, Romeo later revealed his true feelings to Juliet, allowing the May Festival to continue without any further complications.
