Location of Fallarbor Town in Hoenn.

Fallarbor Town (Japanese: ハジツゲタウン Hazitsuge Town[1]) is a small farming community in northwest Hoenn. It is extremely close to Mt. Chimney, so much that the ash from the volcano constantly falls near the town.

To the west of the town is Route 114 and the Fossil Maniac's house, and to the east is Route 113. In the fields of Fallarbor, the locals plant seedlings of hardy trees that thrive even in volcanic ash.


A farm community with small gardens. (Japanese: ちいさな はたけが ある のうそん A farm community with small gardens.)

In the anime

Fallarbor Town in the anime

In the anime, Ash and his friends arrived in Fallarbor Town in Pros and Con Artists, where they met Grace, a skilled Pokémon Coordinator with three Ribbons already under her belt. At first, May was excited for her second Pokémon Contest and confident that she would win. However, she became nervous after seeing just how experienced Grace was.

May and her Beautifly

Noticing this, Grace decided to show May one of her combinations. She sent out her Medicham and asked it to show off its moves, impressing May who had never considered combining attacks before. This inspired May to practice with her Beautifly, but she could not decide which moves would work well together and Beautifly ended up getting tangled in its own String Shot.

To make matters worse, her rival Drew appeared during her training session and criticized her for being so indecisive. He also revealed that he had already won three Contest Ribbons. Later, Drew challenged Ash to a Pokémon battle. Despite being at a type disadvantage, his Roselia managed to defeat Ash's Taillow by paralyzing it with Stun Spore and then attacking with a powerful Solar Beam. Having watched the battle, May became even more nervous and feared she would not win the competition.

In Come What May!, May, Grace, Drew, and Jessica all competed in the Fallarbor Town Pokémon Contest. For the first round, May had Beautifly spinning while using Silver Wind, a performance that placed her among the four Coordinators advancing to the Contest Battles. There, she defeated Jessica to reach the final round, where she found herself up against Grace. The two fought a hard battle, with Grace's Medicham using Beautifly's String Shot to its advantage and encasing Beautifly in ice with an Ice Punch. However, May was able to lend a few direct hits and use some effective combinations, eventually winning the match and obtaining her very first Ribbon.

Ruby & Sapphire arc

Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.

Fallarbor Town first appeared in I More Than Like You, Luvdisc I, where Ruby, Gabby, and Ty traveled there by the Hoenn TV car. Although Gabby and Ty initially served to transport Ruby during his quest for the Pokémon Contest Ribbons, during their visit, they realized that Professor Cozmo, who lived in Fallarbor Town, could hold the answers they sought. They decided to interview Cozmo, only to see that Cozmo was not at his lab. His three aides confirmed the disruption of the balance between land and sea after Team Aqua had ended the volcanic activity at Mt. Chimney, and were awaiting Wallace who had visited Fallarbor to discuss the findings.

Meanwhile, Ruby participated in Pokémon Contests at the Fallarbor Contest Hall and saw Wallace for the first time as he aimed to complete the Super Rank set of Ribbons. Out of jealousy, he challenged Wallace to an impromptu Contest, only to lose. Ruby then offered to be a student of Wallace, promising to win the Super Rank Beauty Contest to be seen as worthy. Once Wallace arrived at Cozmo's lab, the three aides revealed that the information they collected had not been broadcast to the public. Gabby phoned her boss for an explanation, and he suggested that such a broadcast could spread fear and panic. Gabby and Ty thus set off for Lilycove City for more answers while Ruby followed Wallace to the Hoenn Gym Leaders' emergency meeting at Fortree City.

In It All Ends Now VIII, the Fallarbor Contest Hall, destroyed during the weather crisis caused by Groudon and Kyogre, was revealed to have been rebuilt as a Battle Tent, though it still maintained the function of hosting Pokémon Contests.
