Location
Hoenn Dewford Town Map.png
Location of Dewford Town in Hoenn.

Dewford Town (Japanese: ムロタウン Muro Town) is located on an island southwest of mainland Hoenn. Dewford houses a dock, providing transportation between Route 104 and Slateport City. The island town is home to Brawly, the Dewford Gym Leader who specializes in Fighting-type Pokémon. Unlike other towns, Dewford does not offer a Poké Mart.

To the north of Dewford Town, on Route 106, is Granite Cave, a popular spot for rock collectors.

Places of interest

Dewford Town in Ruby and Sapphire

Dewford Hall

Dewford Hall is located north of the Pokémon Center, and is the northernmost building in the town. A sign outside reads:

DEWFORD HALL
"Everyone's information exchange!"

Although it is a tiny island community, if someone says something "trendy" there, it quickly spreads throughout the rest of Hoenn. Dewford Town is famous for these fads. Trendy phrases are usually passed around in Dewford Hall, called "Everyone's information exchange!" There is a boy just outside Dewford Hall that lets the player change the "trendy" phrase and people in Dewford Hall will be influenced by the trend. Changing this affects where Feebas appears in Route 119. If the player returns to Dewford Hall after collecting the Balance Badge, a dark haired man with glasses will appear near the entrance and proclaim that he loves Sludge Bomb and then he will give the player TM36 (Sludge Bomb).

Dewford Gym

Main article: Dewford Gym

Dewford Gym is located in the southernmost portion of Dewford, south of the pier and the Pokémon Center. The sign outside reads:

DEWFORD TOWN POKéMON GYM
LEADER: BRAWLY
"A big wave in fighting!"

The Gym is run by Brawly who specializes in Fighting-type Pokémon. Many citizens look up to Brawly and idolize him. Trainers who defeat him receive the Knuckle Badge. The Gym is a dark maze in which only little light is given. If the players battle the Gym Trainers, more light is awarded to the player. Once the player defeats Brawly, the Gym is fully illuminated.

In the anime

Dewford Island in the anime

Dewford Town appeared for a multiple episode arc between Sharpedo Attack! and Just One of the Geysers, in which it was referred to as "Dewford Island". Ash sought to obtain the Knuckle Badge from Brawly, but failed in his first attempt in Brave the Wave. He remained on the island for a lengthy time period, training, and finally defeated the Gym Leader in Just One of the Geysers.

During Ash's training on Dewford Island, May's Wurmple evolved into Silcoon and eventually Beautifly, he and his friends met up with Hoenn's Champion Steven, and he caught a Corphish, while Brock caught a Mudkip.

Trivia

  • Dewford's Japanese motto is あおい うみに うかぶ ちいさな しま "A tiny island in the blue sea".
  • Dewford is also one of the three locations in Hoenn without a Poké Mart; Littleroot Town and Pacifidlog Town being the other two.
  • Like Chuck, the leader of the Cianwood Gym, Brawly of Dewford Gym specializes in Fighting-type Pokémon. Furthermore, both Gyms are on an island to the southwest of their respective regions, and neither town has a Poké Mart.
