Gen I Gen II Gen III

Twinleaf Town (Japanese: フタバタウン Futaba Town) is situated in the southwestern part of the Sinnoh region. It is here that the protagonist of the Generation IV games Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, and several other notable Trainers begin their Pokémon journeys. Twinleaf is the hometown of the player and their rival, Barry, and the first town known to the player in the games. It is also the nearest town to Lake Verity, referred to by residents as their local lake. North of the town lies Route 201, a junction which leads to Verity Lakefront to the west, and Sandgem Town to the east.

In the southern borderline of trees of the town sits a small pond where an Odd Keystone can be found, where the player can surf to reach it.

Places of interest

Player's house

Inside the player's house

This is the house where the player lives before beginning their journey. The player's mother lives here, and after the player has left town for the first time, going home and talking to her will fully rest/restore all of the player's Pokémon, just like a Pokémon Center.

There are two levels to the house, the first being a living room and kitchen area, while upstairs on the second level is the player's bedroom. It contains a Wii controlled with a Wii Remote, connected to a television, and a PC which reads: "Pokémon Basics... People live alongside Pokémon in this world. The people that battle Pokémon are called Pokémon Trainers." Due to the PC no longer having the item storage functionality, Lucas or Dawn's PC only gives hints on how to play the game. A sign on the wall next to the stairs reads:

The X Button
opens the menu!

The player's bedroom is located upstairs. The player begins the game in here

Rival's house

This is the house where the player's rival and his mother reside in. Like the player's house, there are two levels, the first being a living room and kitchen area, while upstairs on the second level is the rival's bedroom.


Demographics

Twinleaf Town in Diamond and Pearl

Pokémon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum

In the anime

Twinleaf Town in the anime

In the anime, Twinleaf Town is the hometown of Dawn, her mother Johanna, her childhood friend and Contest rival Kenny, and Barry. Izzy, Cara, and Sayer also live here. It debuted in Following A Maiden's Voyage!; Dawn left the town to go to Professor Rowan's lab in Sandgem Town to receive her first Pokémon. Top Coordinator Johanna teaches a Coordinator class in the town. She has a battlefield behind her house for instructing her students.

Dawn returned for the town's annual festival in Strategy Begins at Home!. The group spent four episodes in Twinleaf, where, together with Barry, they participated in the festival's battle tournament. Ash eventually won the tournament, thus earning the chance to battle Palmer. However, the Frontier Brain proved stronger and defeated him.

The town was visited again in Memories are Made of Bliss!, where Ash and Brock boarded the ship sailing towards the Kanto region. As observed by Ash, Twinleaf Town is very similar to Pallet Town, having dirt trails and wide open grass fields.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Twinleaf Town is the hometown of Diamond, Johanna who is Diamond's mother, Pearl and supposedly Palmer, who is Pearl's father.

Trivia

  • In Pokémon Platinum, a rearranged, music-box version of the background music of Twinleaf Town can be played on the Music Box that can be obtained at the Villa in the Resort Area.
  • Despite the player's and the rival's house having two chimneys, neither of the houses have a fireplace.
  • The roads of this town form the kanji 土 (earth, soil).
