Fallarbor Town (Japanese: ハジツゲタウンHazitsuge Town) 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. Fallarbor Town seems to be based on Oita, Japan.
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 Pokémon Emerald, the Contest Hall is replaced with a Battle Tent, with all Pokémon Contests having moved to Lilycove City. It is themed after the Battle Arena in the ((gdis|Battle Frontier|III}}. A sign outside the building reads:
Battle Tent Fallarbor Site
"May the Greatest Teams Gather!"
The house of the Move Reminder is located on the west edge of the town. He will teach a Pokémon any move that it could have previously learned through level-up for the price of a Heart Scale. The sign outside reads:
Move Tutor's house
"New moves taught to Pokémon."
Professor Cozmo's house
On the south side of the town is Professor Cozmo's house, where he studies meteorites. He is not home at first, but will be there after the events at Meteor Falls. In Generation III, Professor Cozmo will trade TM27 (Return) for a Meteorite. Next to his house is what appears to be a modestly-sized meteor crater, which in fact hides a Nugget. In Generation VI, his house contains a meteorite that can be interacted with to allow Deoxys to cycle through its various Formes.
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 decided which moves would work well together and Beautifly ended up getting tangled in its own String Shot.
To make matters worse, her rivalDrew 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 own 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.
Fallarbor Town 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 could hold the answers they sought. They decided to interview Cozmo, only to see that Cozmo was not at his lab. His three aides confirm the disruption of the balance between land and sea after the ending of volcanic activity at Mt. Chimney, and were awaiting Wallace who had made a visit to Fallarbor to discuss the findings.
Meanwhile, Ruby had been participating in Pokémon Contests, 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 broadcasted to the public. Gabby phoned her boss for an explanation, in which 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.
