Snowbelle City in the anime

Main series

Snowbelle City was first shown in All Eyes on the Future! on Serena's Town Map.

Snowbelle City first officially appeared in A Full-Strength Battle Surprise!, as Ash and his friends saw it in the distance, as they walked towards it. In the next episode, they entered the city and went straight to the Snowbelle Gym, where Ash challenged Wulfric to a Gym battle. However, due to his thoughts focusing on besting Sawyer, who had already beaten Wulfric, Ash lost the battle. After a day of recollecting himself in the Winding Woods, Ash returned to the Gym in A Real Icebreaker! for a rematch. This time, Ash was able to defeat Wulfric, earning him his final Kalos League Badge.

Trivia

Origin

Snowbelle City's real-life counterpart is likely Besançon, the capital of Franche-Comté and the Doubs department. The nearby Jura Mountains, on the Swiss border, are known for cross-country skiing and freezing temperatures in winter, particularly in the town of Mouthe. The region is sometimes called "Little Siberia" by the French.
