Template:Infobox town

Twinleaf Town (Japanese: フタバタウン Futaba Town) is situated in the western part of the Sinnoh region. It is here that the protagonist of the Generation IV games and several other notable trainers begin their Pokémon journeys. Twinleaf is the hometown of the player and their rival, Pearl, 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, if the player can surf to reach it.


Places of interest

Inside the player's house.

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.
File:DP Players House Upstairs.png
The player's bedroom is located upstairs. The player begins the game in here.
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 Nintendo 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. The room can also be decorated with Poké Dolls. A sign on the wall next to the stairs reads:

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.


Twinleaf Town has a population of 8, not counting the player or the rival, making it the least populated area in Sinnoh.
