Slogan

Pokémon Center Hot Springs An excellent place for relaxing! (Japanese: ポケセン おんせん よいところ Pokésen, onsen, an excellent place.)

Places of interest

Hot springs

The hot springs are connected to an opening in the back of the Pokémon Center. The people draw as much hot water as they need, yet the spring never runs dry. The magma in the active volcano causes veins of water nearby to well up as hot springs. According to legend, the Lavaridge hot springs calm tension, relieve muscle ache, solve romantic problems, and attract money. An old woman standing by the sand baths will give away an Egg containing a Wynaut. There is also an Ice Heal hidden in the water.

In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the hot spring is split down the middle based on gender, indicated by blue and pink doorways, but the player is able to enter either side. A gentleman in the Pokémon Center comments that the hot springs are for Pokémon only. A female Pokémon Breeder in front of the hot spring entrances sells Moomoo Milk individually or by the dozen. After Groudon/Kyogre has been captured or defeated, a Kecleon can be discovered in the female side of the hot spring, and the old woman by the sand baths will give away a second Egg, containing a Togepi.

POKéMON HERB SHOP
"Bitter taste - better cure!"

The Herb Shop sells four different types of herbal medicine. The herbs are extremely bitter and will cause a Pokémon's friendship to decrease when used. An old man inside of the shop will give the player Charcoal.

All four of the herbs in some way heal the Pokémon that they are used on but cause the Pokémon to be less friendly. The Energy Root heals a Pokémon's HP by 200. The EnergyPowder heals a Pokémon's HP by 50. The Revival Herb revives a fainted Pokémon with all of its HP. The Heal Powder heals any status condition.

Lavaridge Town in the anime

Ash and his friends arrived in Lavaridge Town in Poetry Commotion for Ash's next Gym battle. They tried Lavaridge's famous hot springs and also met up with Flannery, the new Gym Leader who was initially struggling with the responsibilities of running the Lavaridge Gym. Ash battled her in Going, Going, Yawn! and won his fourth Hoenn League Badge, after which the group departed from Lavaridge.

In Serving Up the Flute Cup!, Ash met Hodge, who is from Lavaridge Town, and battled him during the Battle Frontier Flute Cup.

In Absol Absolved!, Ash and Goh visited Lavaridge Town at the request of Hodge to investigate a problem with their hot springs. After solving the problem on Mt. Chimney, they took a bath in the hot springs before returning to Kanto

Pokémon Adventures

Ruby & Sapphire chapter

Lavaridge Town first appeared in Bubble Bubble Toil and Azumarill I. After winning her 149th consecutive victory at the Lavaridge Gym, Flannery was contacted by Winona and informed of Sapphire, who had earned three Badges already and was headed to Lavaridge Town. Flannery stepped out of the Gym to cool off and yelled out that she was going to accept Sapphire's challenge. Shelly and Matt overheard her, and, assuming that she knew Sapphire, proceeded to kidnap her.

In Assaulted by Pelipper I, after Team Aqua succeeded in using the Meteorite to make Mt. Chimney become dormant, the hot springs in Lavaridge Town cooled down, along with the rest of the town, causing confusion and panic. In Assaulted by Pelipper II, a wild Absol was seen looking over the panicking town.

In It All Ends Now VIII, Flannery was seen welcoming people, including Tabitha, to the restored hot springs.
