Pokémon world locations

The Oreburgh Mine (Japanese: クロガネたんこう Kurogane Mine) is located in Oreburgh City and operated by Roark. It is one of the main features in the city, as well as the city's leading energy source. In order to battle Roark, the first Gym Leader of Sinnoh, the player must explore the mine and find him. After finding him, he will show the player how to use Rock Smash and then finally leave to go back to his Gym.

Geography

The Oreburgh Mine is one of the main features in the city, as well as the city's leading energy source. It is the livelihood of the town. Vents in the town allow steam to escape and fresh air to enter the mine, likely also clearing the mine of any poison gas (which is historically the bane of coal miners). The mine is operated with the utmost care to avoid causing damage to the natural habitats of wild Pokémon. The system of taking coal out of the mine is automated. Roark lets Trainers from the town train their Pokémon in the mine. The mine itself extends not only under the town, but the seafloor as well. All of the miners have their own Pokémon, usually Machop, to assist them in the mine.

The first part of the cave is the entrance where there is a stairwell that will gradually make its way down to the underground cavern. There are steel drums and crates located around the area, as well as a small conveyor belt, that, in Pokémon Platinum extends to the undersea floor.

The sub floor, which contains a large piece of slab in the middle, is more complex. There are a few workers digging at the slab, but there are some who are training their Pokémon and are eager for a battle. There are two ways of getting around the slab, but only by traveling counter-clockwise can a player make a full rotation around the slab, as there is a small ledge blocking the path. There are a couple of crates located on this floor as well.
