|Pokémon world locations|
Shabboneau Castle (Japanese: ショボンヌ城 Shobonne Castle) is a castle in Camphrier Town.
In the games
Shabboneau Castle was once a manor house, owned by a noble family. However, due to the owners having handed out a lot of their possessions over the years, the castle is very empty, with only several items on display. One of the items given away is a Poké Flute, which the player must retrieve from Parfum Palace in order for the castle's owner, a Black Belt, to wake up a Snorlax blocking Route 7. After the player has battled the Snorlax, the Poké Flute will be put on display at the castle's lobby.
The player and Shauna visit the castle while in Camphrier Town for the first time, asking the owner if they know anything about Mega Evolution. However, the owner is unable to tell them anything about the subject.

In the anime
Shabboneau Castle appeared in Awakening the Sleeping Giant!. It is ruled by Lord Shabboneau, the owner of a Poké Flute that is played during an annual festival centered around a wild Snorlax. However, since Princess Allie from Parfum Palace had selfishly taken the flute for herself, the Snorlax couldn't be woken up, and its loud snoring was causing problems for the people of Camphrier Town. Eventually, Ash and his friends were able to retrieve the flute and return it to its rightful owner, allowing the festival to be conducted as planned.
In the manga
In the Pokémon Adventures manga
Shabboneau Castle appeared in the X & Y chapter, where the castle's owner sent his men to search for the Mythical Pokémon Diancie. However, one of those men turned out to be a jewel thief, hired to steal Diancie. With the help of Korrina, Gurkinn, and Diantha, Diancie was saved, and the castle owner agreed to destroy all of his books about Diancie in order to keep the Pokémon's existence a secret from those who would try to steal it.
