Dewford Hall is located north of the Pokémon Center, and is the northernmost building in the town. A sign outside reads:
"Everyone's information exchange!"
Although it is a tiny island community, if someone says something "trendy" there, it quickly spreads throughout the rest of Hoenn. Dewford Town is famous for these fads. Trendy phrases are usually passed around in Dewford Hall, called "Everyone's information exchange!" There is a boy just outside Dewford Hall that lets the player change the "trendy" phrase and people in Dewford Hall will be influenced by the trend. Changing this affects where Feebas appears in Route 119. If the player returns to Dewford Hall after collecting the Balance Badge, a dark haired man with glasses will appear near the entrance and proclaim that he loves Sludge Bomb and then he will give the player TM36 (Sludge Bomb).
Dewford Gym is located in the southernmost portion of Dewford, south of the pier and the Pokémon Center. The sign outside reads:
DEWFORD TOWN POKéMON GYM LEADER: BRAWLY
"A big wave in fighting!"
The Gym is run by Brawly who specializes in Fighting-typePokémon. Many citizens look up to Brawly and idolize him. Trainers who defeat him receive the Knuckle Badge. The Gym is a dark maze in which only little light is given. If the players battle the Gym Trainers, more light is awarded to the player. Once the player defeats Brawly, the Gym is fully illuminated.
The island's sandy shores and warm waters make it an ideal surf and fishing spot. However, these same waters are home to sharp rocks and hordes of vicious Carvanha and Sharpedo. It also features many other environments, including forests, lakes, and caves.
Dewford Town first appeared when both Ruby and Sapphire arrived there at the same time, riding on Mr. Briney's boat and Lorry, respectively. Dewford was flooded during the climax of the chapter when Kyogre was awakened.
Later, Sapphire and Emerald were training their Pokémon's ultimate attacks under Ultima at Dewford.
Dewford Town shares similarities with Cianwood City. Both locations are on an island to the southwest of their respective regions, and neither one has a Poké Mart. Also, the Gym Leaders of both locations specialize in Fighting-type Pokémon.
