Midbranch (also known as Oceanside) is a city Southeast of Redfield Town. This is the town Sonic and Tails grew up in. Midbranch is also the city which marked the turning point in the Anti-Humanist war when taken over by the Anti-Humanist forces. Midbranch is the city with the largest natural concentration of Phaeton in the ground, and as a result it started the first Phaeton Factory. However, this factory was also the first to fail and collapsed during a revolt in the city, polluting the rivers around the factory.
