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.

The Trainers have special ways to battle, as displayed on the doors leading to their rooms. They include One-Hit KO Room, Accuracy Room, Attack Room, Defense Room, Speed Room, and Recovery Room.
