[[File:Player House 1F DPPt.png|thumb|left|Inside the player's house]]
This is the house where the {{player}} lives before beginning their journey. The [[Johanna|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]].
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 [[Wii]] controlled with a [[Wii#Wii Remote|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, {{ga|Lucas}} or {{ga|Dawn}}'s PC only gives hints on how to play the game. A sign on the wall next to the stairs reads:
===Pokémon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum===
In {{3v2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, Twinleaf Town has a population of 8 (excluding the {{player}} and [[rival]]), making it the least populated town in Sinnoh.

[[File:Twinleaf Town anime.png|thumb|350px|Twinleaf Town 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 asand {{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!]]'', where 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!]]''. {{ashfr|The 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 {{gdis|Battle Tower|IV}}. 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}}, who 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!]]'', where the group arrived there after resuming their journey through [[Sinnoh]]. At the end of the episode, Ash and {{an|Brock}} boarded a [[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.
In ''[[I Choose You!]]'', which is set in an alternate continuity from the main series, Twinleaf Town is the hometown of [[Verity]].
* In {{game|Platinum}}, footprints can be seen after walking on the snow, but [[bicycle]] tracks cannot.
* In {{game|Platinum}}, a rearranged, music-box version of the background music of Twinleaf Town can be played on the [[Villa decoration|Music Box]] that can be obtained at the [[Villa]] in the [[Resort Area]].
* Despite the player's and the rival's househouses having two chimneys, neither of the houses have a fireplace.
* The roads of this town form the kanji {{tt||つち}} (earth, soil).
