Location
Hoenn Petalburg City Map.png
Location of Petalburg City in Hoenn.

Petalburg City (Japanese: トウカシティ Touka City) is located in southwestern Hoenn. Despite Petalburg being the first city with a Gym, the Gym is not accessible until after obtaining four Badges. Norman, the father of the players, is also the Petalburg Gym Leader.

East of Petalburg City is Route 102 and Oldale Town. To the west is Route 104 where Mr. Briney's Cottage and the Petalburg Woods are found.

When a player first arrives at this city and talks to Norman, a boy named Wally will come in asking for help to catch a Pokémon. Using Zigzagoon, a Pokémon Norman lends, and the player's support, Wally catches his first Pokémon: a Ralts. The Pokémon Center has a man near the PC who will let players put key words on their Trainer Cards.

Main article: Petalburg Gym

The Petalburg Gym is the official Gym of Petalburg City. It is based on Normal-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Norman.

Between the entrance and Gym Leader Norman are a series of rooms, each containing a Trainer. The Trainers have special ways to battle, as displayed on the doors leading to their rooms. Once three rooms in a row are completed, they can access the Gym Leader Room with Norman. When defeated, Norman will give the player the Balance Badge as well as TM42 (Facade)RSE or TM67 (Retaliate)ORAS as a reward.
