Lapidarian Highlands (Japanese: ギプナ高地 Guipna Highlands) is an anime-exclusive location in the Pokémon world. It was mentioned in The Bonds of Evolution!. Professor Sycamore described it as "one of the last unexplored regions in the world."

Diantha was filming a movie in the Lapidarian Highlands when a thick fog rose and she got lost from her crew. She had entrusted her manager Kathi Lee with her Gardevoir. As Diantha's crew went searching for her, Gardevoir came out of its Poké Ball. By connecting its heart with Diantha's, it was able to guide the crew to Diantha's location.
