Valley of Steel
Region Hoenn
Debut All Torkoal, No Play

The Valley of Steel (Japanese: ハガネの Valley of Steel) is an anime-exclusive location in the Hoenn region that appeared in All Torkoal, No Play. It is located between Lavaridge Town and Mauville City.

A road cuts across the Valley of Steel, and is considered a shortcut. However, the craggy landscape is made more dangerous by the Steel-type Pokémon that inhabit the valley and violently protect their home from any intruders, including Torkoal, who accidentally stumbled into the area. As Team Rocket found out, even the airspace is carefully patrolled by Skarmory. At its edge lies a river that is close to Mauville City.

Ash and his friends were traveling through the Valley of Steel when they saw Torkoal being attacked by a wild Skarmory and Magnemite. After several skirmishes, Ash helped Torkoal defeat its rival, a Steelix who ruled over the valley. Afterwards, Torkoal decided to join his team.
