A hometown is a town that a person considers their home. In the main series video games, it is the town that the player's journey begins in.

In the games

In the main series games, the player and their rival will begin their journey in their hometown, venturing onto the first routes from there, encountering the Pokémon Professor, and getting their starter Pokémon. After beating the Elite Four and champion, the player will start again from their hometown when the game is next loaded.
