Oreburgh City (Locations & Items)

Staci Miller

Oreburgh City is the first city with a Gym you’ll come to in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl. Other than the gym, however, there are a few things to do here.

Main Story

You’ve come to Oreburgh City to challenge Roark, but first, you need to find him.

Head south of the city to Oreburgh Mine. It’s not hard to find Roark, and he immediately returns to the Oreburgh Gym so you can head on up there and challenge him when you’re ready.


There are a few optional but important items you should find in Oreburgh City.

Item Location

There is also a Poké Mart with various items for sale. More will unlock as you collect badges, so every time you visit this city, there will be new items for sale. Early in the game, you’ll find the following items.

Mining Museum

Once you gain the ability to go to the Grand Underground in Eterna City, you’ll be able to dig up fossils. You can then return to the Mining Museum in Oreburgh any time to revive these fossils, but he can only do one at a time.

Pokémon Fossil Required
Omanyte.png"Omanyte" IconOmanyte Helix Fossil
Kabuto.png"Kabuto" IconKabuto Dome Fossil
Aerodactyl.png"Aerodactyl" IconAerodactyl Old Amber
Anorith.png"Anorith" IconAnorith Claw Fossil
Lileep.png"Lileep" IconLileep Root Fossil

Notable Encounters

Like every city, this town has a Pokémon Center. Use it to heal your Pokémon whenever you need to.

In the same house you found the Heal Ball, there’s a woman who will offer to trade her "Abra" IconAbra for your "Machop" IconMachop. As "Abra" IconAbra is pretty hard to catch, this is a worthwhile trade you should consider.

It's actually a pretty good offer, especially this early in the game.

There are various other NPCs around the houses who will offer tricks and tips for early players of the games. Seasoned players, however, shouldn’t have to worry about these.
