    Rusturbo without a doubt. A lot of people are saying Lilycove because of the Master Contest Hall and the Department Store but Rusturbo has the Devon Corporation and the city just seams fitting for a capitol.

      I'm going to go about this logically.

      In Gen I, I would think it would be Saffron, because it has that feeling of grandeur about it.

      In Gen II, I would think it would be Goldenrod, because of economic reasons and the above sense of grandeur.

      Gen IV, I would say Hearthome because of the feelings of grandeur.

      Gen V, I feel like Opelucid, because of the feelings of grandeur and history.

      Logically, I would say Rustboro because of the grand feel about the place.

      I vote that it be in Fortree. That is where the Gym Leaders convened to discuss matters of great importance in Pokemon Adventures Ruby and Sapphire.
      That's a good point. But Fortree City seems much to hard to navigate through to be the capital.

      Mauvile City has the right feel of a capital city for me. A good capital city should be accessible to and from anywhere you go in the region, and Mauvile has roads leading north, south, east and west, thus fitting this criteria perfectly - the centre hub of activity! The cycling road to the south provides quick transportation with the availability of the bike shop that rents bicycles for free, thus making it easier to travel everywhere else! It also has a game corner which can be a big attraction for people coming from all four directions - exactly what a capital city needs.

        Overall, it looks like Lilycove if you want big, Mauvile if you want accessability, and Rostrobo because it looks like it. What I think is Mauvile as well, although it could use some help with bigger buildings and I never thought of it as a city that the game claims it to be, it would work well, being near the center and having the Game Corner helps out with that. It seems like a prime location for a good capital, albeit a bit small.

        It'll always be Lilycove for me! The city has an obvious feel of greatness to it as well as having many major connections, great docking access and generally being a very impressive and well built-up area. The department store and Master Contest hall are great indications that the city is the perfect candidate to be the "capital city" of Hoenn, so it gets my vote.

        I suppose one thing about Lilycove is that Game Freak stayed there, so it may very well be.

          i think its lilycove because its big, has a department store and museum and also has a port that can take you to either the battle tower or slateport city. so it seems like the most things to do are there and that's why i think its lilycove. oh and also gamefreak stay there in a motel.

            Lilycove will be the capital for me. I think it's much bigger than Rustboro and it as a Pokemon Contest building, a supermarket I don't what it is called :3, Museum, and a Hotel. :3

            Plus it's very near to the ocean and has a port of it's own.

            I believe that Lilycove City would be the best capital settlement for the Hoenn region just because it's so diverse. It has virtually everything that would make a real-life city function very well, including a contest hall, motel, harbor, large department store, and a museum. It definitely benefits Hoenn because it's right near the ocean and it has all of what I stated above, therefore really aiding in keeping the Hoenn economy running smoothly.

            Other than Lilycove, I think that Slateport City would make a good capital city for the similar reasons stated above.

                I think all Pokémon Leagues or Conference HQs should be the capital and Champions should have all political power in the region, therefor, Evergrande City

                  The largest city, which is supposed to be Rustiboro or Lilycove. They're tied in my view.

                  I would say its between Rustboro, Mauville, Slateport and Lilycove.

                  All four are coastal (Mauville more like London, being by the end of a river). Slateport with its market and shipping comes across as a former economic powerhouse which has reversed a decline by becoming touristy. Lilycove and Rustboro both come across as fairly booming (Devon Corp, Department Store, Gym, Contest etc.), and if there were a capital I would say it would probably be one of them.

                  But ideally I'd say Mauville City would make the best capital, mainly due to its central location (the UK for example has problems with infrastructure etc. due to London being at one end of the country. The geographic centre is a small rural town). It also has a gym and bike shop (Boris' bikes anyone?).

                  Hope I didn't go to high-level there...

                  Lilycove, for all the reasons said above and page earlier.
