How To Get the Contest Pass & Contest Costume (Pokémon ORAS)

Wearing the Rock Star Contest Costume in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire

You will get the Contest Pass from Lisia in Slateport City. To obtain it, you need to first deliver the Devon Parts to Captain Stern. The Contest Pass is part of the main story, so it’s an unmissable key item.

The Contest Costume becomes available as soon as you get the Contest Pass, and it’s an optional key item. You can obtain the Contest Costume in any Contest Hall when you try to enter a Contest Spectacular for the first time.

These two items are both necessary if you want to sign up for Contests around Hoenn.
