From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
The Valley of Steel (Japanese: ハガネの谷 Valley of Steel) is an anime-exclusive location in the Hoenn region that appeared in All Torkoal, No Play. It is located between Lavaridge Town and Mauville City.
Steel-type Pokémon inhabit the valley, including its skies, and violently protect it from any intruders, including Torkoal, who accidentally stumbled into the area. A road cutting across the Valley of Steel is considered a shortcut. There is a river close to Mauville City at the valley's edge.
Ash and his friends were traveling through the Valley of Steel when they saw Torkoal being attacked by a wild Skarmory and Magnemite. After several skirmishes, Ash helped Torkoal defeat its rival, a Steelix who ruled over the valley. Afterwards, Torkoal decided to join his team.
