Twinleaf Town is the starting location and hometown of the player character in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Versions and Pokémon Platinum Version. Route 201 is directly north of Twinleaf Town.
Twinleaf Town is a symmetrical area with four houses; the player character lives in the southeastern house, and their rival lives in the northwestern house. Twinleaf Town has little else besides a small body of water to the south and two small gardens with flowers, both of which are enclosed within a white fence.
Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Versions
In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Versions, the game starts in Twinleaf Town, where the player character is watching a television news report in their home. After doing so, the player character goes to visit their rival, Barry, at his house. The player character cannot leave Twinleaf Town without doing so, as a man prevents them from progressing unless they visit their rival. After the player character visits Barry in his house, he runs of Twinleaf Town and to Route 201. The player character is then allowed to follow him there.
After battling some Wild Pokémon and meeting Professor Rowan, the player character must return to Twinleaf Town and talk to their mom to receive the Running Shoes. After visiting Sandgem Town, the player character must return to Twinleaf Town and visit their mom again to receive the Journal. Barry's mom also gives the player character a Parcel to deliver to Barry in Jubilife City.
Later on, once the player character has a Pokémon that can use Surf, they can optionally return to Twinleaf Town and move across its body of water. While surfing, the player character can find a Odd Keystone hidden within the trees.
Pokémon Platinum Version
In Pokémon Platinum Version, the events in Twinleaf Town are slightly different. Patches of snow can be seen on the ground.
A total of six Pokémon can be encountered at the small body of water, either by surfing or fishing. All of them originally appeared in the Generation I games.
