Location of Postwick in Galar.

Postwick (Japanese: ハロンタウン Furlong Town) is a small town located at the southern end of the Galar region. It is the hometown of the Galarian player character and their rival, Hop. To the north is Route 1 and to the west is the Slumbering Weald.

Slogan

A farming town since days of old, where people and their Pokémon live in close harmony. (Japanese: から 牧場を み ポケモンたちと ともにらす  A farming town since days of old, where people and Pokémon live together.)

Places of interest

Player's house

Main article: Player's house

The player character lives in this house with their Mum and her Munchlax.

Hop and Leon's house

Hop and Leon live here with their parents and grandparents. After fetching Leon from Wedgehurst, the Champion will give the player and Hop their starter Pokémon at the front yard.

After the player become the new Champion, Leon will leave a Poké Ball containing a Charmander on the floor in his room on the second floor with a letter. This Charmander can Gigantamax once it evolves into Charizard.

Demographics

Postwick's population is 5 (not counting the player), likely owing to its lack of amenities such as a stadium or Pokémon Center and its relative isolation. This makes it the smallest town in Galar, as well as the entire Pokémon world.

Postwick appeared in Buddy, where Hop's Wooloo ran away from home and subsequently began exploring the town. Later, Hop ran across the town, asking people if they had seen Wooloo.

In the manga

In the Pokemon Adventures manga

Postwick briefly appeared in a flashback in PASS05. One year before the events of the Sword & Shield chapter, Sōdo had traveled through the town towards the Slumbering Weald in the hopes of seeing the legendary Rusted Sword and Rusted Shield. As he approached the gate leading to the forest, he saw something falling from the sky and into the forest. Shirudomiria then appeared, bashing through the gate with her Pokémon. She had recognized the falling objects as Wishing Stars and wanted to get her hands on them. With both of their objectives lying inside the forest, the two Trainers entered it together.
