In the anime
In the {{pkmn|anime}}, Twinleaf Town is the [[hometown]] of {{an|Dawn}}, her [[mother]] [[Johanna]], and her childhood friend and [[rival]] {{si|Kenny}}, as well as {{an|Barry}} and his father {{FB|Tower Tycoon|Palmer}}. [[Izzy and Cara|Izzy, Cara]], and [[Sayer]] also live there. It first appeared in ''[[DP001|Following A Maiden's Voyage!]]'', in which Dawn left town to go to [[Professor Rowan]]'s laboratory in [[Sandgem Town]] to receive her [[starter Pokémon]] and begin her {{pkmn|journey}}. [[Top Coordinator]] Johanna offers a course in town for young {{pkmn|Coordinator}}s. She has a battlefield behind her house for instructing her students, where she teaches them about the basics of [[Pokémon Contest]]s, and gives them [[Appeal|performance]] tips and [[Contest Battle]] techniques. [[Noelle]] is one of her students.
Dawn returned for [[Twinleaf Festival|the town's annual festival]] in ''[[DP138|Strategy Begins at Home!]]''. The [[Ash's friends|group]] spent four episodes in Twinleaf, where they, together with Barry, participated in the [[Festival Battle Challenge]]. Ash eventually won the tournament, thus earning the chance to {{pkmn|battle}} Palmer, the head of [[Sinnoh]]'s {{DL|Battle Frontier (Generation IV)|Battle Tower}}. However, the [[Frontier Brain]] proved to be much stronger than him and defeated him. During the festival, Twinleaf was also visited by {{an|Professor Oak}}, which gave a lecture on "the interrelation of {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} and [[Evolutionary stone]]s" at the town's auditorium.
The town was shown again in ''[[DP191|Memories are Made of Bliss!]]'', in which the group arrived there after resuming their journey through Sinnoh. At the end of the episode, Ash and {{an|Brock}} boarded the [[Transportation in the Pokémon world|ship]] sailing towards the [[Kanto]] [[region]]. As observed by Ash, Twinleaf Town is very similar to [[Pallet Town]], having dirt trails and wide, open grass fields.
