==Places of interest==
===Fossil Lab===
The Ambrette Fossil Lab is a laboratory that specializes in reviving [[fossil|fossilized Pokémon remains]] back into living Pokémon. Various fossils, anthropological and astronomical items and materials line the shelves near the back walls and entrance. Among the items internedstored here are several meteorites which can be used to change {{p|Deoxys}} between its [[List of Pokémon with form differences|Formes]]. A {{tc|Hiker}} will also award the {{player}} the [[Burn Drive|Burn]], [[Chill Drive|Chill]], [[Douse Drive|Douse]] and [[Shock DrivesDrive]]s if shown a {{p|Genesect}}.
 
===Ambrette Aquarium===
The Ambrette Aquarium is a two-story public aquarium with no entry fee. It also serves as the connecting point between Ambrette Town, {{rt|8|Kalos}} and the coastline. Several patrons walk around on the two levels, enjoying the various aquariums on the upper entrance floor. On the lower level sits a large {{p|Magikarp}} statue, with the exit leading out to Route 8. If the player talks to the {{tc|Fisherman}} next to the statue, he will give the player an {{DL|Fishing|[[Old Rod}}]].
 
===Hotel Ambrette===
{{main|Kalos hotels}}
On the second floor of Hotel Ambrette, a group of travelers will rotate in and out of the rooms. Any of the travelers not at Hotel Ambrette on one day may be found at the hotels in [[Camphrier Town]], [[Cyllage City]], [[Geosenge Town]], [[Coumarine City]], and [[Couriway Town]].
 
Six travelers will rotate among the first room on a six-day cycle: a {{tc|Hiker}}, a {{tc|Waiter}}, a {{tc|Madame}}, a {{tc|Maid}}, a male {{tc|Tourist}}, and a {{tc|Backpacker}} (in that order); as the player talks to these travelers on different days (at any hotel), they will gradually open up to the player. A female {{tc|Tourist}} who gives out [[Ribbon]]s will also occupy the second room every [[Days of the week#Monday 7|Monday]].
 
[[Mr. Bonding]] also initially occupies the third room, granting the player the Sp. Def. Power [[O-Power]] when spoken to.
