Pokemon Fire Ash Walkthrough

Pokemon Fire Ash
Walkthrough
Accurate through v. 2.18

NOTE: Some of the TM’s / Move Tutor locations have been changed. I will correct this in future walkthrough updates. For accurate TM / Move Tutor locations, please consult the Pokemon Fire Ash Locations.txt document in the game folder.



——————————
GENERATION 1: THE KANTO REGION
——————————

———–
PALLET TOWN
———–
Take out a Potion from your computer, then head downstairs. Your mom will automatically give you the Running Shoes. From now on, your Mom will heal your party when you talk to her.

Leave the house, and head east to Professor Oak’s Lab. Talk to Gary who blocks the way and listen to him brag about getting the best pokemon…jerk.

Go up the stairs and grab a Potion in upper left part of the ledge before entering the lab.

Enter Oak’s Lab. Note that the machine in Oak’s Lab will heal your party. Go to 2nd floor and talk with Professor Oak. Oak tells you that all the pokemon have been taken except for one, your ICONIC Pikachu.

Take the pokeball with the ICONIC Pikachu, though he won’t be spending much time in the pokeball from now on. Grab the Pokedex and the six pokeballs on your way out.

Leave Pallet Town to the west.

——-
ROUTE 1
——-
Wild Pokemon (* before name means that this is your first chance to get that Pokemon. I will only put them next to the unevolved Pokemon): *Pidgey, *Spearow, *Rattata, *Poliwag, *Sandshrew, *Mankey. Usual level 2-5.

Ho-oh also appears here, but the chance is low (1%) AND it is level 50. You should wait to grow stronger before attempting to catch it, but it’s technically possible even now.

Talk to the second person you see to get a Super Potion. There is also a Rare Candy hidden in a bush on the right side of the route across the bridge.

Go north to Viridian City.

————-
VIRIDIAN CITY
————-

Go to the west, then north to get a Pokeball. Guarding the Pokeball is a Move Tutor who can teach your pokemon the move Snore. Note that the item behind the Gym can’t be obtained at this time.

Team Rocket is in the Pokemon Center. You must defeat them to unlock the north exit from the city.

ICONIC BATTLE
TR Jessie and James:
Ekans LV 4
Koffing LV 4

Pokemon Mart sells:
Poke Ball – 200
Potion – 300

The path west (Route 22) is blocked until you get 8 badges, so go north.

——-
ROUTE 2
——-

Follow the road and enter Viridian Forest.

—————
VIRIDIAN FOREST
—————
Wild Pokemon: *Caterpie, *Weedle, Kakuna, Beedrill, Pidgey, Pidgeotto, Spearow, rarely Fearow. Usual level 3-5.

There are 4 trainers in the Forest.
Bug Catcher Rick
Caterpie LV 6
Weedle LV 6

Bug Catcher Anthony
Caterpie LV 7
Caterpie LV 8

Bug Catcher Doug
Weedle LV 7

MINOR ICONIC
Bug Catcher Samurai
Pinsir LV 7
Metapod LV 7

Items:
Antidote: In tall grass in SW part of the forest.
Pokeball: Hidden in the NW corner of the glade when you enter the forest (almost directly NW from your starting position, in the corner). It should be mentioned that the way to pick these is a bit counterintuitive. You must step NEXT to the target tile, turned toward the target tile, and search with action button. Makes sense when target tile is impassable, but not really when it’s just empty space.
Antidote: In tall grass in SE part of the forest.
Potion: In the NW part of the forest.

Exit north.

——-
ROUTE 2
——-

Continue north.

———–
PEWTER CITY
———–
Immediately go around the trees on your right and back south to Route 2 to grab TM54 (False Swipe). In the NW corner of the city, there’s a Pokeball hidden on 2nd tile from the top. Note that there is a slight discoloration in the tile. Many hidden items have similar tile discolorations.

Gym: 1 trainer and Brock.
Camper Liam
Rhyhorn LV 7
Geodude LV 7

GYM LEADER BROCK (2v2)
Geodude LV 8
Onix LV 9

Note that from Version 2.14 and onwards, Gym Battles and League Battles may restrict the number of pokemon you can use in the battle. Be sure to plan accordingly.

Defeating Brock will get you Boulder Badge and TM80 (Rock Slide).

After beating Brock, go to his house (NW part of the town). All his younger siblings are inside. Talk to the eldest sibling, Forrest, in top left corner to obtain TM37 (Sandstorm).

Outside, and to the east of Brock’s house, there is also a Move Tutor who will teach your pokemon Iron Defense.

You now have 1 badge, which means that Pokemarts expand their inventory. Their inventory now is:
Poke Ball – 200
Great Ball – 600
Potion – 300
Super Potion – 700
Antidote – 100
Parlyz Heal – 200
Awakening – 250
Burn Heal – 250
Ice Heal – 250
Escape Rope – 550
Repel – 350

Beating Brock also unlocks Pewter City as a destination for the teleporters in Pokemon Centers.

Leave to the east.

——-
ROUTE 3
——-
Wild Pokemon: Pidgey, Spearow, *Jigglypuff, *NidoranM, *NidoranF, Mankey, rarely *Ekans. Level 3-8.

Enter the cave to Mt Moon.

——-
MT MOON
——-
Wild Pokemon: *Zubat, *Clefairy, Clefable, and *Paras appear in both floors. *Geodude appears only on the upper floor, while Sandshrew only appears on the lower floor. Usual level is 5-10.

Start by going to the left to fight a trainer and grab a Nugget.
Bug Catcher Kent
Weedle LV 11
Kakuna LV 11

Then take the ladder down; you’ll get to an enclosed chamber with a trainer and two items: Antidote on the left and Revive on the right.
Hiker Marcus
Onix LV 12

On the upper floor, go north and east from the ladder. The correct route is north and west, but explore the SE part of the floor for some goodies: there are 2 trainers in this section (one on the left, one on the right) and 2 items: Visible TM46 (Thief) on the left and a hidden Ether; there is a formation of 3 rocks in the very SE corner of the floor, the Ether is in the middle rock.
Super Nerd Jovan
Magnemite LV 11
Voltorb LV 11

Bug Catcher Robby
Caterpie LV 10 x2
Metapod LV 10

Going along the correct route, you will find another trainer.
Lass Iris
Clefairy LV 14

Turn the corner to head south and find another ladder leading down to a room. Before heading down, grab the Revive in the SW corner of this room. Take the ladder.

From where you appear on the lower floor, go north. There are three rocks in the northern part of this room; the one on the right hides Moon Stone.

There’s a trainer directly below the ladder.
Youngster Josh
Rattata LV 10 x2
Zubat LV 10

After him you’ll come to two sets of stairs. The stairs on the left lead to a guy who gives you TM08 (Bulk Up). There is an Escape Rope north of him. The stairs on the right lead you around the floor, past 2 other trainers, to the ladder up.
Lass Miriam
Oddish LV 11
Bellsprout LV 11

Super Nerd Miguel
Grimer LV 10 x2
Voltorb LV 10

There is a hiker by the exit, but you don’t battle him. Before you take the ladder out, there is another Ether, hidden in an empty spot in the middle of the NW rock formation.

Once you take the ladder, go west and exit the cave.

——-
ROUTE 4
——-

Nothing to do here now. Exit east.

————-
CERULEAN CITY
————-

Talk to the purple-haired girl to obtain Eviolite.

Go to the NW house and leave through the back door. There’s Rare Candy hidden in the garden behind the house; it’s in the top row, on the left empty tile between two blue flowers.

The house next to the Pokemon Center has an old man who will trade you Tangela for your Rattata.

The house north of the Gym has a guy who will give you TM27 (Return).

The Gym has 2 trainers plus Misty.
Swimmer Luis
Horsea LV 16
Shellder LV 16

Picknicker Diana
Goldeen LV 19

GYM LEADER MISTY (2v2)
Staryu LV 17
Starmie LV 19

Defeating Misty gets you Cascade Badge and TM55 (Scald).

After beating Misty, Cerulean City will be add to the list of teleport destinations.

Go south (you will have to take the long way around because there’s a tree in your way).

——-
ROUTE 5
——-
Wild Pokemon: Pidgey, *Meowth, *Oddish. Level 10-16.

Route 5 can be entered from left, right, or center. Tall grass with wild Pokemon is only on the middle route. There’s also one trainer, the unofficial Gym Leader AJ, with his sandshrew.
MINOR ICONIC:
Youngster AJ
Sandshrew LV 16

At the south end of this part is the Day Care center to raise and breed your Pokemon. The important thing to note is that in order to pick up Pokemon you leave there or an egg (the old man outside will give you an egg, when one is generated) you must have an empty spot in your party. There is a PC in the Day Care.

This is your first chance to obtain a Cleffa or Igglybuff by breeding Clefairy or Jigglypuff respectively. Female Clefairy and Jigglypuff can be caught in Mt Moon or on Route 3, respectively, if you only have male ones. At this point you only have one Pikachu and he’s a guy, so you won’t be able to obtain Pichu until you get a Ditto.
That being said, you can get your Pichu to be born with Volt Tackle if the Pikachu is holding a Light Ball, which you will get later, so I’d suggest to wait a bit in any case.

On the west side of the route, there is a gap in the fence. Go through it, then south and east along the fence to obtain Revive at the end of the path.

The gatehouse is impassable for now, so go through the trees beyond the gap in the fence to enter Hidden Village.

————–
HIDDEN VILLAGE
————–
Wild Pokemon: Rattata, Paras, Oddish, Weepinbell, Caterpie, *Staryu, *Magikarp. Usual level 10-15.
Technically, this is your first chance to get a Weepinbell, but you might prefer to catch a Bellsprout a bit further.

Hidden Village is one long winding path and you’ll have to go through tall grass, so be prepared. There is only one visible item (Big Root) which is around the middle of the path — you can’t really miss it. However, there are also 4 hidden items:

1: After first patch of tall grass, you see two red flowers in opposite vertices of 3×5 rectangle. Sitrus Berry is hidden in the center of this rectangle.
2: Second patch of tall grass is out of the way and you don’t have to go through it. You DO have to go through the third patch. North of this patch are two red flowers. Three tiles west and one tile north from the top flower is a Leppa Berry.
3: The fourth patch of tall grass is the largest one and it covers most of the bottom part of the path. Hug the northern edge of the path. You’ll go through two tall grass tiles, and then there are three empty tiles. Lum Berry is hidden on the left empty tile.
4: After leaving the fourth patch, you’ll enter the final area of Hidden Village. From the SW red flower, Chesto Berry is two tiles east and three tiles north.

At the end of the village is a Girl (Melanie) and an ICONIC LV 12 Bulbasaur. It’s the first of the many ICONIC Pokemon that you’ll recieve as a gift during your travels.

After getting Bulbasaur, go east into the trees to Route 24. Be sure to grab the Everstone on the way out.

ROUTE 24

Weather forecast: Sometimes rainy

Wild Pokemon: Pidgey, Caterpie, Oddish, *Venonat, Weedle, Metapod, Kakuna, *Abra, *Bellsprout, Pidgeotto. Usual level 7-14.

Enter the Pokemon Center and talk to the guy on the right (Damien). He’ll tell you he ditched his Charmander. Well, one man’s trash…

Leave the Pokemon Center and go east. There’s the ICONIC LV 15 Charmander on the rock. If you talked to his former trainer, you can take him. Once you have him, return to the Pokemon Center and talk to the guy on the left to obtain Charcoal.

Note: You should try to train up Charmander and evolve it into Charizard. To obtain a certain TM later, you will need a Charizard.

Go south.

——–
ROUTE 25
——–

Route 25 has several parts. We can’t enter the southern part right now so we can’t fight wild Pokemon. You’ll have to resolve the Squirtle problem first.

Enter the top left house to encounter Team Rocket once again.
ICONIC BATTLE
TR Jessie and James
Ekans LV 18
Koffing LV 18

After defeating them, talk to the ICONIC Squirtle and take him with you. Once you have Squirtle, talk to the cop outside to get Blackglasses. You can now pass to the southern part of the route.

Wild Pokemon: Pidgey, Meowth, Oddish, Bellsprout. Usual level 10-15.
Fishing (Old Rod): Krabby. Level 15 – 22
Fishing (Good Rod): Krabby Level 15 – 22, Dragonite Level 20 – 22
Fishing (Super Rod): Krabby Level 25 – 32, Dragonite Level 30 – 22

There are 6 trainers in this part, including a pair of double trainers. Double trainers can be actually fought twice, by talking to one of them and then the other.

Cool Couple Alice & Bob (Double Battle)
Eevee LV 19
Squirtle LV 19

In the very NW corner of this part, you can find a hidden Ether.

After you pass the part with tall grass, you’ll see the Lighthouse. Enter it and talk to the Pokemon inside. It’s actually Bill. Agree to help him and he will reward you with Old Rod. Talk to Bill again and “Someone’s PC” where you store your Pokemon will be renamed to “Bill’s PC”.

Also, be sure to access the computer in Bill’s lighthouse. Doing so will greatly expand your PC boxes, up to a total of 56 boxes, each with a capacity of 30 pokemon. That’s 1,680 pokemon total!

With the Old Rod, you can now start fishing. Unfortunately, all places where you’ve been so far only have Magikarp and Poliwag available with Old Rod. You can still grab them if you haven’t got them yet.

However, Route 25 itself is special. There are two new pokemon that appear here in the water. One is Krabby, which you can get even with the old rod from level 15 to 22, and thus continue to follow in Ash’s footsteps. However the other pokemon is, in fact, a Dragonite, the pseudo-legendary of the Kanto region. It’s incredibly rare, with only a 1% chance to appear with a Good or Super Rod.

Catch a Krabby if you want and go south.

—————
VERMILLION CITY
—————

Go east where a sailor and his Machop are. Directly south of the plot of land is TM111 (Dazzling Gleam).

The orange-roofed house in the middle row (west of Pokemart) has a kid who will trade a Farfetch’d for your Spearow.

Next to this house is the Pokemon Fan Club. Talk to the old man and agree to listen to his blather about his Fearow to get a Bicycle.

The eastern road out of town has a move tutor that will teach your pokemon Super Fang

Brock is in front of the gym and you must defeat him again to get him to leave.
ICONIC BATTLE:
Pokemon Breeder Brock
Onix LV 20
Geodude LV 19
Zubat LV 18

Gym contains 3 trainers + Lt. Surge.
Engineer Baily
Voltorb LV 19
Magnemtie LV 19

Sailor Dwayne
Pikachu LV 20 x2

Gentleman Tucker
Electabuzz LV 20

GYM LEADER LT. SURGE (1v1)
Raichu LV 21

In order to get to him, you must find two switches hidden in the trashcans. Both of them are in the top row: the one on the left end and the third one from the right. Defeating Lt. Surge nets you Thunder Badge and TM24 (Thunderbolt). It will also allow you to obtain Light Ball form the lady in Pokemon Fan Club. And, as always, it will allow you to teleport here through Pokemon Centers.

Another benefit of defeating Lt. Surge is that a small tree in Cerulean City will be finally cut, making travel between Cerulean City and Route 5 much easier.

Note: Technically, you could skip Cerulean Gym and go directly to Vermillion City. However, if you did this, then this is where you’d have to go back — you must beat BOTH Misty and Lt. Surge to be allowed on the ship.

Another note:
Once you do, in fact, defeat both and have 3 badges, Pokemart inventory updates again:
Poke Ball – 200
Great Ball – 600
Potion – 300
Super Potion – 700
Hyper Potion – 1200
Revive – 1500
Antidote – 100
Parlyz Heal – 200
Awakening – 250
Burn Heal – 250
Ice Heal – 250
Escape Rope – 550
Repel – 350
Super Repel – 500

The way east from the city is blocked by a sailor. To get past him, you must go on S.S. Anne cruise. S.S. Anne is at the right of the 3 docks in Vermillion City.

———
S.S. Anne
———

This is a big ship with four floors. You start on 1F. 1F has a row of cabins. Your cabin is the second one from the right and it contains a bed where you can heal your party and a PC. The rest of ship is basically lots and lots of trainers.

Cabins on 1F, from left to right:

First cabin: Trainer.
Lass Ann

Nidoran F LV 18

Second cabin: Trainer.
Youngster Tyler

Fifth cabin: Just people.
Sixth cabin: Just a biker.
Seventh cabin: Your cabin.
Eighth cabin: Trainer.
Gentleman Arthur
Nidoran M LV 19 x2
Nidoran F LV 19

Apart from cabins, there’s a fisherman who offers you a super-rare Pokemon (actually a level 15 Magikarp).

If you go left and down, you get to the kitchen. There are three trash cans on the right side of the room, and each of them hides an item. From top to bottom: Pecha Berry, Cheri Berry, Chesto Berry.

2F, accessible through the stairs in upper-left corner of 1F, has five more rooms. All of them, except for the leftmost one, have a trainer to fight (the second room from the left and the rightmost room have two).

MINOR ICONIC:
Gentleman Gentleman
Raticate LV 23

After you beat him, he offers to trade his Raticate for your Butterfree, and you can actually talk to him again after that and trade them back.

The last floor is B1F which is accessed through stairs in the bottom-right corner of 1F. First of all, grab the Hyper Potion that is hidden in the trash can next to the stairs. Then start checking the rooms.

This floor has five rooms. First four rooms from the right (where you enter the floor) contain one normal trainer each.

ICONIC BATTLE
TR Jessie and James
Ekans LV 19
Koffing LV 19
Magikarp LV 15

When you beat Team Rocket, the sinister plan is put into motion. Various sailors you’ve seen standing in the corridors suddenly change into Team Rocket members who will fight you. You can skip them all and get directly to the final boss of the ship by stepping on the blue tile in the room you fought Team Rocket in, but where’s the fun in that?

There are 3 Team Rocket Members on B1F (and you’ll have to beat all of them to get back to the stairs).

Magikarp LV 10 x2

In addition, the sailor who blocked the way to the stairs in top-right corner of 2F is now gone, letting you enter the captain’s cabin (which is also where you end up if you take the blue tile in Team Rocket room). However, once you go to captain’s cabin, you can’t leave until you fight the boss, so do everything else you want first!

There’s two Team Rocket members in the captain’s cabin, but one of them is just there to block the stairs. The other one, on the top of the room, is the one you have fight.
TR Admin
Drowzee LV 24
Golbat LV 24

Once you defeat him, he disappears. Talk to the captain and you’ll end up back in Vermillion City. The sailor on the eastern side will now let you pass.

——–
ROUTE 11
——–
Wild Pokemon: Sandshrew, *Drowzee, Spearow, Ekans. Level 15-18.

There are 3 trainers here to fight.

TM09 (Venoshock) is available in plain sight, but there’s one more item: The boulder next to the house at the northern end contains an Escape Rope.

On the eastern side of this Route, there’s the Butterfree mating season. Five people watch them.

Second one from top lets you release a Butterfree if you have one.

Fourth one will give you a free Great Ball.

Fifth one is a trainer to fight.
Bug Catcher Yasu
Butterfree LV 27

When you’re done here, enter the house and go through the Underground Path. It’s entirely uneventful, so I’m not even going to give it its own section.

——-
ROUTE 8
——-
Wild Pokemon: Pidgey, Meowth, Sandshrew, Ekans, *Vulpix, *Growlithe

All tall grass is in a fairly small fenced area in the middle of the Route. This patch has one visible item, TM20 (Safeguard), along the south edge, and three hidden items:

1: Rawst Berry — two tiles west and three tiles north from the TM20.
2: Lum Berry — one row above Rawst Berry, three tiles west from the eastern fence.
3: Lepa Berry — in the same column as Rawst Berry, three tiles south from the northern fence.

There are 13 trainers on this route, including a pair of Double Trainers (who, like before, can be fought twice).

Route 8 connects Lavender Town (east) and Saffron City (west). you have to go through a gate house to get to Saffron City, but the guard will let you go through, unlike the one at Route 5.

For now, backtrack along Route 8 and go to Saffron City.

————
SAFFRON CITY
————

This is the biggest town we have found yet! Let’s have a look around!

Interesting places:
House in NW corner: On the upper floor, you’ll find a girl who can teach Role Play to Pokemon.
House in SE corner: Talk to the man here to get TM29 (Psychic).
Silph Co. (the tall building in center of the city): Talk to the receptionist to get TM90 (Substitute). Also, grab a Master Ball in the middle of the room.

The Gym contains 9 rooms in 3×3 grid. Let’s number them from 1 to 9 so the NW room is 1, north room is 2, west room is 4, etc.

Each room contains a trainer except for room 8 (which is the entrance). Sabrina is in the central room (room 5). All other rooms contain 4 teleporters, which are placed roughly in the corners. Teleporters are connected in pairs (stepping on a teleporter always moves you to the paired teleporter).

Slowpoke LV 26 x2
Slowbro LV 26

So room 9 can be reached with a single teleport, rooms 3, 6, and 7 with two, rooms 1, 2, and 4 with three and central room 5 requires 4 teleports.

Unfortunately, when you defeat Sabrina, she won’t give you the badge — instead she gives you a new task: beat Pokemon Tower in Lavender Town. Go through Route 8 to get there.

————-
LAVENDER TOWN
————-

If you went here before, you’d find that the entrance to Pokemon Tower is blocked by a person who warns you away. She’ll be gone now.

Three houses can be entered. SE house contains Name Rater who can change the nicknames of your Pokemon.

Enter Pokemon Tower.

————-
POKEMON TOWER

Once you defeat her, she will give you TM121 (Shadow Punch)

Now you can go back to Saffron City.

————
SAFFRON CITY
————

Go to the Gym and defeat Sabrina again.
GYM LEADER SABRINA round 2 (1v1)
Kadabra LV 29

You’ll get Marsh Badge and TM04 (Calm Mind). This will also add both Saffron City and Lavender Town to the Pokemon Center teleport destinations.

In addition, the gates from Saffron City can now be passed. Route 5 lies to the north and Route 24 to the south. West is Route 7 — new destination.

——-
ROUTE 7
——-
Wild Pokemon: Mankey, Primeape, Vulpix, Meowth, Pidgey, Oddish, Bellsprout, Growlithe. Level 25-27.

Misty appears at the start of this route and you have to defeat her again. Otherwise, there’s nothing here. Continue west to Celadon City.

————
CELADON CITY
————

Gary blocks the door to Pokemon Center. Talk to him and listen to him brag a bit to get him to leave.

In the top row of houses, there is a lone tree between two houses. You can find a PP Up in there.

Beside the Pokemon Center, there is a Biker that will teach your Pokemon the move Covet.

In the SE area, a guy will give you TM21 (Frustration). You can also find an Ether if you follow the southern fence west.

In the row of 5 houses, go to the second one from the left. Talk to the man in top right corner to receive the Coin Case.

In the game corner, there is an attendant that will let you buy coins.

Next to the Game Corner, you can exchange your coins for prizes. The attendant on the left will let you exchange coins for items:

Smoke Ball – 800 coins
Miracle Seed – 1000 coins
Charcoal – 1000 coins
Mystic Water – 1000 coins
Yellow Flute – 1600 coins.

The attendant on the right will let you exchange coins for Pokemon:
Abra – 180 coins
Clefairy – 500 coins
*Dratini – 2800 coins
*Scyther – 5500 coins
*Porygon – 9999 coins

Note that both Dratini and Scyther can be found in Safari Zone which you’ll reach quite soon. If you want to limit your coin grinding, you can just get a Porygon.

Coins can be won in slots or in the Voltorb Flip game. Voltorb Flip is better (doesn’t cost anything to play so you can’t lose), but to get better payouts, you must win multiple games in a row. http://www.voltorbflip.com/ has an application that solves the game for you, but since there can be multiple solutions, it can just lead you to make the LEAST risky moves, but not eliminate the risk entirely; thus, reaching high levels with high payouts is hard even with this — especially since your game level can randomly drop when you lose. Also remember that if you stop playing, you’ll have to start over from Lv. 1 next time.

The top and right part of the Game Corner is dedicated to Triple Triad (originally from Final Fantasy VIII). There are four card players on the right and the guy behind the desk lets you buy or sell cards. You can only buy cards for Pokemon you already own.

Person in top left deals with Lottery where you can win prizes if you have a Pokemon with original Trainer ID corresponding to the lucky number. You can win:

Ultra Ball for matching the last digit.
PP Up for matching the last 2 digits.
Exp. Share for matching the last 3 digits.
Max Revive for matching the last 4 digits.
Master Ball for matching all 5 digits.

In NW corner is a big building with two entrances — Celadon Department Store. In the Department Store, there are two ways to travel between floors, through stairs or the elevator.

Beating Anthony will give you a Black Belt. You can also give him Pokemon to train, similar to Day Care. Actually, there are several people in the game who will train your Pokemon, but they all share the same ones. On one hand, it makes it easier to drop them off and pick them up, but on the other hand, only the guy at Day Care Center can give you eggs and that’s probably the main reason why you use Day Care.

Items:
Max Potion: North of the entry.

Go back out.

Cycling Road can be entered through the gate. However, before you do so, go upstairs in the gate building. One of Professor Oak’s aides is waiting for you on the right and will give you an Amulet Coin.

Note that while you need to have a bike to enter the Cycling Road, you are not required to ride it.

There are many trainers on this path.

There’s a hidden item (Rare Candy) on a tile directly above the middle of the sandy stretch.

PP Up is hidden in the SE corner of this sandy stretch.

Finally, there’s Max Revive — at the southern end of the road, you’ll see a short fence. Max Revive is hidden on the tile south of the middle section of the fence.

Continue south to Route 18.

——–
ROUTE 18
——–

Just a small stretch of a road. There’s a woman in the upper floor of the gate building that will trade a Slowbro for her Lickitung.

The next gym is technically right here, on Route 18, but let’s check Fuchsia City to the east first.

————
FUCHSIA CITY
————

The top of this town is a zoo with various Pokemon exhibits.

The house east of the Pokemon Center contains Move Deleter who can remove moves from your Pokemon. Since this game has no HMs, there is not much point to it.

From the house in SE part of the town, you can go back to the yard. There’s Max Revive hidden there, on the tile adjacent to all three flowers. But what’s more important, there’s water to fish! Even with just the Old Rod, you can catch a Slowpoke here.

One of the people wandering around the pokemon enclosures is actually Jasmine, Koga’s daughter. However, she won’t do much except chat with you, so feel free to move on past her if you want.

As you attempt to enter the safari Zone, there is a guy who will stop you and challenge you to a battle outside the doors.

MINOR ICONIC
Gambler Kaiser (The Safari Warden)
Dragonair LV 35

Go north to Safari Zone.

———–
SAFARI ZONE
———–

At this point, you can only access the central (Kanto) part of the Safari Zone. Rules are: pay 500$ for right to make 600 steps in the Safari Zone, plus 30 Safari Balls to catch wild Pokemon.

Wild Pokemon in Kanto part: *Tauros, *Tangela, *Rhyhorn, Nidorina, Nidorino, *Exeggcute, Venonat, Parasect, Scyther, *Pinsir, *Chansey. Level 30-35.

If you didn’t buy Scyther in Game Corner, this is first chance to catch it normally. Pinsir and Chansey have only 1% encounter rate. However, since encounters in Safari Zone are less tedious, it’s not that hard to grind for them. Note that Exeggcute and Scyther are available on Route 19 just south of Fuchsia City, so that might be a better option for you.

Note: Definitely get a Tauros — you will need one for a quest later in the game. There is a free ICONIC Tauros as well by the lake edge at LV 35.

You can also fish here — Old Rod gets you either *Horsea or Dratini, level 30-32. Dratini is another one of those Pokemon in Game Corner.

Three visible items:
HP Up in SW corner,
Leaf Stone in the NE corner
TM11 (Sunny Day) in NW corner.

There’s also a hidden Nugget: Go to the NE grass patch. It has 4 grass tiles adjacent to the lake. Nugget is hidden on the second one from the left.

Once you catch what you want, go to the Gym on Route 18.

The gym has 6 trainers plus Koga.

Now go south from Fuchsia City to Route 19.

——–
ROUTE 19

Wild Pokemon: Venonat, *Lickitung, Butterfree, Exeggcute, Spearow, Abra, Scyther, Oddish, Exeggutor. Level 30-32. Exeggutor only has a 1% encounter rate.

Heart Scale: At the left side of the fourth tall grass patch is a row of 4 empty tiles between trees and tall grass. Heart Scale is hidden in the second tile from the right, right next to a Bug Catcher Trainer.

Even when you beat her, you won’t get it, sadly. Once you beat Misty, the house can be no longer entered.

The left house contains an old man. If you’ve beaten both Koga and Misty, he will give you the Vermillion Ticket.

As the ticket name suggests, you should now go to Vermillion City.

—————
VERMILLION CITY
—————

Go to the docks. The middle pier will accept your Vermillion Ticket and you’ll be able to go to the Cinnabar Island.

—————
CINNABAR ISLAND
—————
First of all, this is the first place where you can obtain Goldeen. It can be caught even with Old Rod, at level 15-19.

There are two important buildings on the island: Pokemon Institute and Pokemon Mansion.

Pokemon Institute has a Fossil Reviver who can revive fossil Pokemon for you. There’s also a Move Tutor that teaches Seismic Toss.
On the left you’ll find three traders. They will trade:

Your Raichu for their Electrode (left one)
Your Venonat for their Haunter (middle one)
Your Seel for their Ponyta (right one)

But you need to go to Pokemon Mansion — only then you’ll earn the right to go to the Cinnabar Gym.

—————
POKEMON MANSION
—————
Wild Pokemon: The mansion has 4 floors (1F, 2F, 3F, B1F). All floors contain *Koffing, Grimer, Rattata, Muk, and Weezing. Floor 1F-3F has Raticate while Floor B1F has it replaced by Ditto. Additionally, each floor has a different Fire-type Pokemon: 1F has Growlithe, 2F has Vulpix, 3F has *Ponyta, and B1F has *Magmar.

Thanks to half-destroyed state of the mansion, you can’t just grab things on each floor in order. You have to take a roundabout route.

1F: There are two trainers on this floor.
Youngster Johnson
Ekans LV 33 x2
Raticate LV 34

Scientist Ted
Electrode LV 29
Weezing LV 29

4 items:
Moon Stone: Hidden on the left side of the floor in the entrance hallway, in the small rock among a pile of rocks.
Escape Rope: Visible on a table in the top left room.
Carbos: Visible in top right quadrant of the floor.
Protein: In the big room with stairs down, it’s hidden in the top left corner. Can’t be obtained right now.

2F: 2nd floor has two trainers as well.

HP Up: In the broken doorway near to right stairs up. Can’t be obtained right now.

There are three stairs up on the floor. The lower stairs (the one next to stairs form 1F) lead to a separate area of 3F with an item (Iron) and a trainer. To get further, take the upper stairs.

3F: Once again, two trainers.
Burglar Simon

Max Revive: Hidden on the tile right below Max Potion.

Note that Ponyta can be caught on this floor.
Iron is accessible from the first stairs, other 3 items are in the main area of the floor. Get to the down stairs on the right and go back to 2F.

2F: Now you’re in the right position to grab the HP Up and fight the 2nd trainer on this floor. There’s a hole in a wall to the south. Ignore what the trainer says and fall into it.

1F: You can get Protein now. Go to B1F.

B1F: One trainer.
Scientist Ivan
Magnemite LV 34
Electrode LV 34

In the top left room, there’s a guy you have to talk to in order to “complete” this dungeon. In the room below him is the only item on this floor, TM22 (Solar Beam).

Note that this floor has Ditto and Magmar. Especially Ditto is a Pokemon you should get because of its universal breeding compatibility. Since this floor is hard to access, you should catch what you want while you’re still here.

Once you’re done, go back up and out. There’s an exit from the mansion south of the stairs.

With Ditto, you can now obtain some pre-evolutions (Pichu, Cleffa, and Igglybuff) if you weren’t able to before. You are now also able to breed Magmar to get Magby.

Note that while Chansey also has a pre-evolution, you can’t get the necessary item yet.

But what’s more important, the ship can now take you to the Cinnabar Gym!

Teleport to Viridian City.

BONUS: Catching Ho-Oh

Since our journey takes us back to Viridian City now, let’s try getting our first legend, Ho-Oh!

Ho-Oh appears on Route 1 with 1% chance. It’s at level 50. It’s a normal encounter, so you can encounter it again even if you catch or defeat it.

To catch it in reasonable time, I’d suggest the following setup:

1. Buy some Max Repels and LOTS of Ultra Balls. Catch rate of Ho-Oh is very low.

Max Repels will be used to avoid encounters. The trick is that they only prevent encounters with Pokemon of lower level than the one in your first slot. If that Pokemon has a reasonable level, BUT not greater than 50, Max Repel will avoid all standard Pokemon on Route 1, so you can only encounter Ho-Oh. You might walk a long time before that happens, but it’s considerably quicker than fighting normal battles or escaping them.

2. Your leading Pokemon should be a Beedrill. That’s because Beedrill has the Swarm ability which doubles encounter rate — leads to less wasted Repels.

3. You need some source of paralysis to improve catch rate. Pikachu’s Nuzzle is a good one, since you definitely have a Pikachu and since Nuzzle always paralyses. While sleep would improve catch rate more than paralysis, paralysis has the advantage of never wearing off.

4. You need something strong to beat Ho-Oh down — I’ll leave details to you. False Swipe (TM54) on a high-level Pokemon would be nice since it can’t KO.

5. Before trying to find Ho-Oh, SAVE THE GAME. Even when you find Ho-Oh, it might still take multiple attempts, and even an unsuccessful attempt will cost you lots of valuable Ultra Balls. If you encounter Ho-Oh and fail to catch it, reload and try again.

Once you find Ho-Oh, paralyze it, reduce its HP and start chucking Ultra Balls. Ho-Oh has Sunny Day and three damage-dealing moves: Fire Blast, Sacred Fire, and Punishment. Paralysis and the natural tendency of Pokemon Essentials to sometimes skip the turn of wild Pokemon will reduce the number of turns it takes, but if you want to improve your longevity even further, you could use a Pokemon with Flash Fire ability (like Vulpix, Growlithe, or Ponyta). These are completely immune to Fire Blast and Sacred Fire, leaving Punishment as the only attack that will work.

If you manage to get a Ho-Oh, congratulations! — you got a powerful legendary and the rest of the game got easier.

————-
VIRIDIAN CITY
————-

The old man who blocked the entrance to the Viridian Gym will now move away, letting you access it. The moment you enter it, you’ll be thrown into battle with a L50 Mewtwo, so be prepared to catch it! While you can chuck Ultra Balls at it, I would suggest to just use the Master Ball you got from Silph Co. There will be a few more Master Balls in future, plus, Mewtwo is the first Legendary in the game that actually blocks your progress, so you might not have as much time and resources to prepare for it as you want.

Once the battle is over, you go immediately into a battle with Team Rocket.
ICONIC BATTLE:
TR’s Jessie and James
Kingler LV 40
Rhydon LV 40
Machamp LV 40
Arbok LV 37
Weezing LV 37

Defeat them and the Gym collapses. You’ll appear outside.

There’s an item close to where you are. It’s the Earth Badge, plus TM26 (Earthquake). In addition, you can go through the wreckage of the Gym to get a Lucky Egg, an extremely useful item that boosts EXP for any Pokemon that holds it.

Before you head to Route 22, head back towards Pallet Town. There will be an ICONIC Mr. Mime blocking the way. When you talk to it, you have the option of letting it join your team. Now head back to Viridian, and head west to route 22.

ROUTE 22
——–
Wild Pokemon: Persian, *Onix, Sandslash, *Machoke, Jigglypuff, Pidgeotto, Poliwhirl. Level 35-38.

There’s Machoke, but no Machop. In fact, Machop can be caught, but you will still have to wait a bit. If you want, you can catch a Machoke here and breed it for Machop.

There are 9 trainers on this route. Several of them are based on the characters of the 1st Pokemon Movie, Mewtwo Strikes Back.

Once you get out, you can find several vendors.
Careful: you’ll eventually lose access to Indigo Plateau, so you might want to buy something.

Top left vendor sells:
Fresh Water – 200
Soda Pop – 300
Lemonade – 350
Berry Juice – 100

Top right vendor sells:
Full Incense – 9600
Lax Incense – 9600
Luck Incense – 9600
Odd Incense – 9600
Pure Incense – 9600
Rock Incense – 9600
Rose Incense – 9600
Sea Incense – 9600
Wave Incense – 9600

Bottom left vendor sells:
Cheri Berry – 200
Chesto Berry – 200
Pecha Berry – 200
Rawst Berry – 200
Aspear Berry – 200
Oran Berry – 200
Lum Berry – 600
Sitrus Berry – 800

And the bottom right vendor (Team Rocket) sells:
Cleanse Tag – 200
Destiny Knot – 200
Everstone – 200
Poke Doll – 1000
Heart Scale – 9000

What do these items actually do? Incenses have various effects when held, but they are also necessary to obtain certain Pokemon. That’s because they can cause production of certain pre-evolutions when breeding. At this point, Luck Incense is the only one that can work for you: you can use it with Chansey to breed Happiny. But you’ll eventually want all of them. This might be a good time to remind you that you should already have an Amulet Coin, a hold item that doubles money from battles. And if you don’t, Luck Incense just happens to have the same effect.
So, which Incenses do you actually need? Assuming you don’t want their battle effects and just want to breed, Full, Luck, Rock, and Sea Incense are most important, as you will have a chance to get these Pokemon in the not-too-distant future. Lax Incense is unnecessary, as there will actually be a free one in the area where the relevant Pokemon appears foir the first time.
As for Odd, Pure, Rose, and Wave Incenses, by the time you actually get the Pokemon that use them, you’ll have an access to a permanent Incense shop, so there’s no need to buy them here.

Heart Scales are used with Move Relearner, but there will be a better source of them.
Everstone might be worth picking up — it’s effect (stopping evolution) might be useful at times, but it also has a second effect, forcing parent’s Nature onto a baby. And it’s cheap.

Note that if you get a Happiny, you won’t be able to evolve it back to a new Chansey yet — this requires an Oval Stone which you don’t have yet.

There’s still a lot of trainers to get money for the remaining items, but if you need more, there are a few options.

1. Meowth
Meowth can learn an attack called “Pay Day”. Whenever you use it, you get money equal to double Meowth’s level at the end of the battle. Note that you must decline Meowth’s evolution a few times to get it.
You can double the amount by using Amulet Coin or Luck Incense, but it’s not really worth it — even with Lv. 100 Meowth or Persian (which you’re probably far from having), you’d only get 400 per Pay Day.
There’s one more advantage of Meowth, though: it can have the ability Pickup and get you items as you walk.

2. Crime
And by “crime”, I mean TM46, Thief.
A few wild Pokemon can have items. Catching a Pokemon will give you the item, obviously, but that’s not financially sound since you’d be down a cost of Pokeball and, more to the point, the items themselves might be rare. There is an ability, Frisk, that can tell you whether a Pokemon has an item or not, but unfortunately, you don’t have access to it yet.
What you DO have access to, though, is Butterfree. Butterfree has the ability Compoundeyes that increases chances you’ll find a Pokemon with an item.

Next step is just to use Thief. Fortunately, Butterfree is able to learn it from the TM. Remember that Butterfree must not have any item, otherwise the theft won’t work.

An advanced setup is to have Butterfree in the front, but fainted (its ability will still work like that), and a Pokemon with Frisk and Thief in the second spot. That way you’ll get lots of items and you can steal them easily.

So, is there a good place to steal? Most items that can be obtained are not that expensive, but Mt Moon is a pretty good one. It has two good moneymakers: Paras and Clefairy/Clefable (both have greater chance to be encountered on the top floor).

Clefairy can have Moon Stone, which, apart from the fact that it’s important for the evolution of several Pokemon lines, it can be sold for 2000. Paras, on the other hand, can have either Tiny Mushroom or Big Mushroom. Tiny Mushroom can be sold for 250, while Big Mushroom can be sold for 2500! Compoundeyes make them appear with chance 20%, so it’s a bit time-intensive but potentially profitable.

Alternatively, you might want to try Hidden Village. There are wild Paras here as well, but you can also find Staryu — and Staryu can have Stardust or Star Piece. Even common Stardust can be sold for 1000 and Star Piece for even more money. Unfortunately, Staryu are pretty rare.

Basically: if you want to gather some Moon Stones for evolution, hit Mt. Moon — otherwise, Hidden Village might be better.

As a note: there’s one more item a Paras might have: Balm Mushroom. That can sold for incredible 25,000, but it’s rare, even with Compoundeyes.

As for farming specific items for their USE, I’d suggest to wait until you get Frisk.

But we’ll have time for this after we go through Pokemon League!

Enter the building on Indigo Plateau.

On your left: a woman who lets you enter the league. At the left wall is Poke Mart, and at the top right is a Poke Center. After registration, you can go to the Water stage, second exit from right.

And that’s it! You got to Top 16, and that’s the best you can get for now. As you finish, the announcer tells you to go tell Professor Oak how you did. So lets head back to Pallet Town now.

———–
PALLET TOWN
———–

Return home and talk to Professor Oak. He’ll let you travel to the Orange Archipelago on a blimp… that is, if a Fearow didn’t attack the blimps! The Fearow hides in the northern part of the Viridian Forest, but beware — once you beat him, Indigo Plateau closes for good and you’ll lose access to the shops there. So if you want to use them, now’s your chance!

Once you’re good, beat the Fearow — it is only level 40, so you should have no problem with it.

We can now move further, but before that, go back to Pallet Town. In SE corner of the town will be a pink-haired girl who will give you LV 50 Mew. The girl is actually Mew in disguise. Don’t judge.

In addition, go to your house and to your room upstairs. Get the item that appeared there, TM102 (Crush Claw).

Nothing else to do — go to Viridian City and use the blimp service to go to Valencia Island.

But after you defeat them, you’ll end up crashing on Valencia Island…well, at least you got there!

Wild Pokemon: Butterfree, NidoranF, NidoranM, Paras, Raticate, Vileplume, Weepinbell. Level 33-37.
Cloyster can be caught here, even with Old Rod, but you might want to wait and get a Shellder later.

NE from your position, there’s a visible item (Berry Juice). When you go north, you’ll find a Great Ball on the northern end of the western beach.

Enter Professor Ivy’s lab and grab the GS Ball.

Now that you have it, several things happen:

1. You can move between your house in Pallet Town and Professor Ivy’s lab using the warps that are located there. More destinations will be added to the warps as you unlock new regions.
2. The blimp in Viridian City will now take you to the civilized part of Valencia Island.
3. The middle ship in Vermillion City (the one you used to go to Cinnabar Island) now connects to Valencia Island as well.
4. A sailor with his Lapras appear on the western beach of Valencia Island. The sailor can take you to Vermillion City or to two new destinations: Tangelo Island and Mikan Island.

————–
TANGELO ISLAND
————–

Few things to do here:

This is the first place that you can catch Tentacool, even with Old Rod. The other Pokemon available from fishing is Slowpoke.

The house right next to where you start has a lady who gives you a Max Revive.

One of the houses in SW corner (only one can be entered) has Pokemon Move Maniac who can teach your Pokemon any moves they forgot. Unfortunately, he requires Heart Scales to do so. Until we get a good source of them, he won’t be too useful.

Pokemon Park isn’t too useful, just pretty. House in SE corner can’t be actually entered.

The important thing here is in the NE corner. Four trainers block your way to a Lapras.

Fishing: Horsea and Staryu.

Close to where you start is a house. In the tree left of the house is a hidden Pecha Berry.
At the SE corner of the island is a Revive. Below that is a guy who gives you TM25 (Thunder)
A house on the hill in the center of the island has a trainer. After you beat him, talk to him to get TM42 (Facade).

Once you’ve beaten her, the guy in the eastern house will now give you a Water Stone. You can also get TM42 if you haven’t done so yet — you don’t have to fight the trainer anymore.

Finally, Lapras Launch opens a new route: you can now go to from Tangelo Island or Mikan Island to Navel Island.

————
NAVEL ISLAND
————

Fishing: Magikarp and *Seel.

You start on a beach. In the NE tile of this beach is a hidden Heart Scale.
A guy on the island will give you TM83 (Work Up).

The right house contains four guys. Three of them are Move Tutors for Fire Punch, Ice Punch, and Thunder Punch.

A guy in Poke Center will give you a Soft Sand.

After that, go to the cave up north. Welcome to Navel Rock.

———-
NAVEL ROCK
———-
Navel Rock has four floors: 1F, B1F, 2F, and 3F. 1F and 2F share the same Pokemon list, as do B1F and 3F. Possible Pokemon are:
*Cubone – 1F and 2F only, common
Abra – B1F and 3F only, common
*Electabuzz – common on 1F and 2F, rare on B1F and 3F
Graveler – common on B1F and 3F, rare on 1F and 2F
Dugtrio – uncommon on all floors
*Diglett – uncommon on all floors
*Machop – uncommon on all floors
Ekans – uncommon on all floors
Golbat – uncommon on all floors
Zubat – rare on all floors
Koffing – very rare on all floors
*Voltorb – very rare on all floors

If you get an Electabuzz, remember that you can breed it to get an Elekid.

So, what about that Voltorb? It has 1% encounter rate, and even if encountered, it unfortunately knows Self-Destruct, so it can blow itself up. And your next chance to get one will come quite a bit later. To improve your chances, you should get a Poliwag or its evolution with the ability Damp which will cause Self-Destruct to fail. Unfortunately, they have to be pretty high-leveled so Electric-type Voltorb can’t just OHKO them with its OTHER attacks… Supposedly, you could improve your chances of finding a Voltorb (well, that, or Electabuzz) by using a Pokemon with Static in the front, but from my testing, this doesn’t seem to really work.

Anyway, once you’re ready to do this dungeon, go up and left. Fight a trainer and get down the ladder.

Going from the cave entrance to the right, there will be a small space north of you with seven rocks. The leftmost rock hides a Max Revive. At the end of the path, go down the ladder.

For now, go out the cave into Navel Gym. There are two people here. First one is a healer who’ll heal your party before the Gym Leader — Danny.

GYM LEADER DANNY (5v5 battle)
Nidoqueen LV 45
Geodude LV 45

————————
SEVEN GRAPEFRUIT ISLANDS
————————
Fishing: Goldeen + Staryu.

This place is a bit confusing: as the name says, there are seven islands which are connected by bridges into a long linear sequence. Let’s call the island you start on Island 3. The island north of you is Island 2, and the island to the east of THAT is Island 1. Islands 4-7 are those you can get to by going south, in order.

Island 1:
Bunch of guys picking grapefruits. The mid-bottom guy on the right side will give you TM105 (Toxic Spikes).

Island 2:
You can get an item here (Berry Juice).

Island 3:
Nothing interesting, except for the Lapras Launch to go back to Navel Island.

Island 4:
A woman in the house here will tell you about the Snorlax problem. Since you want to go deal with it, she will let the guard know.
A guy in Pokemon Center will give you a Berry Juice.

Island 5:
This island is completely devastated by Snorlax. There are some green-ish patches left, and two of them contain hidden Berry Juices: the one at the very NE, and one roughly in the middle: go east from the bridge and it should be the secong patch you see.

Island 6:
More devastation. There’s one hidden Berry Juice, in a green-ish patch: go east from the bridge, go down from the first patch and search the second one.

Island 7:
You must talk to the woman in the house on Island 4 in order to get here. There’s an ICONIC Snorlax here (level 45).

Go back to Island 4 and talk to the woman again — you will get Leftovers. If you have caught the Snorlax, don’t forget that it also had Leftovers, so you should now have two of them.

If you have bought the Incenses at Indigo Plateau, you can give Full Incense to Snorlax and breed it to get a Munchlax.

You can now use the Lapras Launch to reach the next island, Trovita.

————–
TROVITA ISLAND

While it’s possible to fish here, no encounters are defined and so you can’t catch anything.

Wild Pokemon: Sandslash, Golem, Magneton, Nidorina, Wigglytuff, Kadabra, Arcanine, Nidorino, Arbok, Exeggutor, Dragonair (rare). Usual level 40-42 (Dragonairs have 45).

Note that this is a premium leveling spot — not only are the Pokemon high-leveled, but they are also all evolved forms which give significantly more EXP! With Lucky Egg, Exp. Share, and your legendary Pokemon, you can get a lot here.

Careful when interacting with Lapras Launch here — you can go to Valencia, but it’s a one-way trip; going back to Pummelo will take several more trips.

There are three islands-Ice, Lightning, and Fire. You start at the Ice island and Lapras Launch can transport you to other islands as well as back to Pummelo Island. Ice island has Articuno on it, Lightning island has Zapdos, and Fire island has Moltres. All three are level 50. Get them.

And we’re done with Orange Islands! Next up, Johto!

ROUTE 45

The way west is blocked by a pair of fighting trainers. Follow the path south.

————-
NEW BARK TOWN
————-

Go to the Professor Elm’s Lab in the NW corner. There’s a teleport in his lab which connects to other two (Pallet Town and Valencia Island). You can now teleport freely between the three regions.

Go west to route 29.

——–
ROUTE 29
——–
Wild Pokemon: *Heracross, *Spinarak, Pinsir, Butterfree, *Stantler, NidoranF, NidoranM. Usual level 5-6.

Since you’re in a new region, wild Pokemon levels dropped significantly. Use False Swipe so your high-level Pokemon won’t knock the wild Pokemon out. You should have a TM for it — or at the very least, Cubone has it naturally.

The most important thing here is Stantler. Try to get a Stantler with a Frisk ability — fortunately, its second ability is Intimidate which shows itself in battle. If you meet a Stantler and it won’t reduce your attack, it has Frisk and you should get it.

Frisk will reveal an item held by opposing Pokemon (if any) once you encounter it. Combined with Butterfree’s Compoundeyes (which, as I’ve said before, increase the chance of meeting Pokemon with items), you will get a powerful team for item farming (don’t forget to teach Thief to your Stantler).
For maximum speed, you can make your Butterfree faint. That way, Compoundeyes will still work but Stantler will enter the battle first so you don’t have to switch it in (after all, if you start with Butterfree, you can just have THAT use Thief). Or you can just give Stantler a Smoke Ball and immediately run from anything uninteresting (of course, then you need someone else with Thief to actually steal the item). Also, if you’re doing this, have some items ready to heal your Stantler — using a Poke Center would revive Butterfree and you’d have to make it faint again.

Midway along the route you’ll get to amuse yourself by crushing the dreams of a beginning trainer and Baseball Fangirl Casey.

You can catch a *Hoothoot here (rarely, Haunters and Gengars appear as well). You shouldn’t use False Swipe here — this location has permanent hailstorm and Hoothoot will be KO’d by the hail. Instead wait a bit until its HP is dropped and then catch it. Or use Sunny Day/Rain Dance to change the weather and then use False Swipe.

There are a pair of trainers at the entrance of the snowy area.

Nothing too important here, except fishing — Woopers can be caught in this town. There is a new teleporter in Poke Center, but we can’t use her services yet.

ROUTE 30
——–
Wild Pokemon: *Ledyba, Hoothoot, Spinarak, Caterpie, Weedle, Metapod, Kakuna, Pidgey. Level 7-8.

Three visible items on the path, a Potion an Antidote and a Poke Ball.

Next to a house is an Apricorn tree which will give you a random Apricorn.

There are a total of 5 trainers on the route. Two of them are in the eastern grassy section.
MINOR ICONIC

At the top of the route there is another trainer by the gate to Violet city.
MINOR ICONIC
Lady Muchmoney

At the end of the route is a gate. Continue west to Violet City.

———–
VIOLET CITY
———–
Fishing: Magikarp and *Marill.
If you got Sea Incense, you can breed Marill to get Azurill.

There’s a Potion north of where you come in. You have to go around the Poke Center to reach it.
There’s another Apricot Tree in the SW part of the city.
There’s a hidden Poke Ball in the NW corner of the island in the lake.

The school (house north of Poke Center) has a trainer inside.
MINOR ICONIC
Youngster Zackie
Bellsprout LV 8

The NW house has a guy who wants to trade your Bellsprout for his Onix.

The gym has two trainers and Falkner.
Bird Keeper Abe
Spearow LV 11

Bird Keeper Rod
Pidgey LV 9 x2

However, Falkner won’t fight you because he needs to do something about the Sprout Tower. Go there and you’ll fight Team Rocket again.
ICONIC BATTLE
TR’s Jessie and James
Arbok LV 40
Lickitung LV 38
Victreebel LV 38
Weezing LV 40

There are two old guys at the top. Talk to the left one to fight him and get TM70 (Flash) as a reward.
Gentleman Li

Once you obtain it, you can fight Falkner.
GYM LEADER FALKNER (3v3)
Hoothoot LV 11
Dodrio LV 13
Pidgeot LV 13

Beat him for Zephyr Badge and TM40 (Aerial Ace).

Johto Poke Center teleports start to work now, connecting Cherrygrove City and Violet City.

There are two routes leading from Violet City: Route 32 to the south and Route 36 through the gate building to the west. Let’s start west.

——–
ROUTE 36
——–
Wild Pokemon: Pidgey, Hoothoot, NidoranF, NidoranM, Vulpix, Growlithe, Stantler (rare). Level 6-11.

There is a trainer here in the northern grass patch
MINOR ICONIC
Lass Wilhomena
Marill LV 10

The way west is blocked. However, we can still visit the Ruins of Alph to the south.

————-
RUINS OF ALPH
————-

The cave contains nothing but Unown (Level 11). There are four items — Leppa Berry is left from the entrance, the other 3 (Stardust, Great Ball, and TM16 (Lunge)) are on the linear path through the ruins.

I suggest to have an empty spot in your party. Catch one extra Unown, put it in the front spot and give it to the man in the house next to the ruins to obtain a Psychic Gem.

That’s all we can do here for now (though you might want to search the ruins for a while to register all 28 forms of Unown into your Pokedex — no need to catch or even defeat them, you just have to meet them), so return to Violet City and go south to Route 32.

——–
ROUTE 32
——–
Wild Pokemon: Hoothoot, *Mareep, *Sentret, Oddish, Diglett, Gloom, Primeape, Machoke, *Hitmonlee, *Hitmonchan, Vileplume. Level 8-10.
Fishing: Magikarp and Goldeen.

Many new Pokemon here. Note that you can breed Hitmonlee or Hitmonchan with Ditto to obtain Tyrogue, who you can then evolve into Hitmontop. That requires its ATK and DEF to be the same, so it might require some finagling.

Talk to the first guy you meet to obtain a Miracle Seed. Fight three trainers.

then there will be a big patch of tall grass on the left. A Super Potion is hidden on the only non-grass tile inside.

A Great Ball is hidden on the tile just in front of the cave entrance.

Enter the cave (Charicific Valley). You won’t be allowed to pass unless you have a Charizard with you. If you do, the woman will fight you.
MINOR ICONIC
Cool Trainer Liz
Charizard LV 50 (Charla)

After you beat her, she’ll join the ranks of the Day Care trainers. In the back of the cave, among Charizards, is TM43 (Flame Charge).
After that, Route 32 splits a bit. Left path (over land) contains a trainer and ends with a Great Ball.
Lass Mary
Mareep LV 12 (Fluffy)

Right part (bridge) starts with a guy who gives you a Heart Scale and continues with three trainers.

Go to the right. Fight a trainer and you’ll find an ICONIC LV 10 Cyndaquil.
ICONIC BATTLE
Tamer Koji
Sandslash LV 15

Take the Cyndaquil with you.

Continue west to the Azalea Town.

———–
AZALEA TOWN
———–

West of the house with yellow roof and a chimney is a Full Heal hidden in a rock.

A man in PokeMart will give you a Blu Apricorn.

There’s Slowpoke Well in this town, which is exactly what it says — a small cave with nothing but Slowpokes inside. If you want more Lagging Tails for some reason, this is the best place to farm them.

In the NW corner is Kurt’s house. There’s another Apricot tree there. Unfortunately you can’t get inside because Brock blocks the door. Fight him and he’ll move.
ICONIC BATTLE
Breeder Brock
Onix LV 45
Geodude LV 43
Vulpix LV 42
Zubat LV 41
Pineco LV 16

Go inside and talk to Kurt. Give him your GS Ball and you’ll get a Lure Ball and a Fast Ball in return.
You can now give Apricorns to Kurt and he’ll make special Pokeballs from them:

Blk Apricorn -> Heavy Ball
Blu Apricorn -> Lure Ball
Grn Apricorn -> Friend Ball
Pnk Apricron -> Love Ball
Red Apricorn -> Level Ball
Wht Apricorn -> Fast Ball
Ylw Apricorn -> Moon Ball

Of course, you will eventually encounter a shop that sells these Poke Balls without going through any of the “once per day” thing. And they are actually pretty cheap. So… you know, do whatever you want with them — they are not THAT important.

Go to the gym. It has 4 trainers plus Bugsy.
Bug Catcher Al
Caterpie LV 14
Weedle LV 14

Bug Catcher Josh
Paras LV 14

Beat him for the Hive Badge and TM81 (X-Scissor). Azalea Town will be connected to the Johto teleport system.

Once you do both quests in this town (Gym and GS Ball handoff), you can leave through the western exit to Ilex Forest.

———–
ILEX FOREST
———–
Wild Pokemon: *Farfetch’d, *Snubbull, Hoothoot, Pidgey, *Houndour, Beedrill, *Eevee, Onix, Noctowl, Ursaring. Level 13-17.

Note Eevee, especially. You probably have, or can grab, evolution stones to get Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon. Espeon and Umbreon require happiness. Leafeon and Glaceon require specific locations. For Sylveon, you just need to learn Charm, then level up.

Also note that Farfetch’d can have Leek — try to get one from them for your own Farfetch’d!

Go and fight the first trainer.
Bug Catcher Wayne
Paras LV 15
Ledyba LV 15

At the fork, go right. There’s another trainer and a Revive.

When you beat him, he will give you a Life Orb. Afterwards, he’ll offer to trade your Tauros for his Nidoqueen.

Near the fountain are two more traders: one trades your Tauros for their Rhyhorn, and the other trades your Ninetales for their Porygon (chance for those of you who didn’t feel like grinding 9999 coins).

On the right is another vendor with Indigo Plateau goods:

Pecha Berry – 200
Rawst Berry – 200
Aspear Berry – 200

And further right is a guy who trades your Butterfree for his Bellossom.

The NW part has two more traders: your Teddiursa for their Igglybuff and your Mankey for their Aipom.

There’s also a Biker Move Tutor who can teach your Pokemon the move Roost.

Aidan is at the burning house in NW corner (don’t worry, it’s just a drill). If you have a Squirtle, Wartortle, or Blastoise with you, he will let you train your Pokemon, either here or at his home on Ascorbia Island. Like with Anthony, the Pokemon deposited at one location can be picked up at another.

This is all here (no Incense shop, sadly). Continue NE to next part of Ilex Forest.

Next, head back to the main path and grab an item along the way (Big Mushroom). There is a Move Tutor standing by the gate that can teach your Pokemon Headbutt.

In the big grass patch on the left is a girl who will give you a Water Stone.

Close to the fence, there’s an empty tile in the grass. It hides a Rare Candy.

The last grass patch has a visible Nugget.

Continue north to Goldenrod City.

————–
GOLDENROD CITY
————–

Big city with lots to do.

House on the east side of the city has a Status Judge who will tell you some vague data about the stats of your Pokemon.

Go to the Bike Shop. The guy inside will give you TM36 (Sludge Bomb).

Igglybuff – 180 coins
Cleffa – 500 coins
*Larvitar – 2800 coins
*Gligar – 5500 coins
*Wobbuffet – 9999 coins

There will eventually be a gift Wynaut, so you don’t have to get a Wobbuffet here. Larvitar and Gligar are also catchable later; however, Gligar won’t be catchable until 4th generation, so you might want to get one.

Next is the Department Store. It’s similar to the one in Saffron City.

Once you beat her, you’ll get the Plain Badge and TM45 (Attract). Goldenrod City will be added to Johto teleport network, but more importantly, the Magnet Train will now let you travel between Goldenrod City and Saffron City! This cuts travel time between regions considerably since you no longer have to walk over Pokemon-infested route between New Bark Town and Cherrygrove City.

Finally, the guy on Route 36 FINALLY found his Pokeball and no longer blocks the route.

After beating Whitney, continue on up through Route 35, beating trainers as you go.

If you are frustrated by Wobbuffet’s rarity, don’t worry — there will be a gift Wynaut later.

Apart from some new Pokemon (including a rare Wobbuffet!), there are 5 trainers and 2 items

Continue west to Route 39.

Wild Pokemon: *Aipom, *Smeargle, *Miltank, Ledian, *Natu, Azumarill, Rhydon, *Kecleon, Exeggutor, *Hoppip (quite rare). Level 17-23.
Fishing: Seaking and Remoraid.

Note that Natu has Teleport and can flee from the battle. If you got a Wobbuffet, you can use it to prevent this.

First, lets head west. There are two trainers on this path.

The fenced area contains two hidden items. Their location is hard to describe (you might want to use the Itemfinder here), but I’ll try:

To find the first item, line yourself horizontally with the right edge of grass patch to the south. The line yourself vertically with the top right flower in the meadow to the right. You are now standing one tile south of the item (X Attack).

The second item is three tiles southwest from the first item. It’s a PP Up.

Apart from these two hidden items, there’s also a visible item in the grass patch further south. It’s a Nugget.

In the NW corner of the route is a house. Once you enter, you have to beat five trainers inside in order to get to the prize (a King’s Rock). You are suggested to bring a heavy Pokemon. The heaviest Pokemon that you can have at this point is a Snorlax (460.0 kg). Second best choice is Steelix (if you have stolen some Metal Coats and evolved an Onix) with 400.0 kg, and third best choice is Golem (300.0 kg). It will somewhat help against Heavy Slams you’ll face here, but it’s far from necessary.

OLIVINE CITY
————
Fishing: Krabby and Marill.

A guy in a house in the NE corner will trade your Krabby for his Voltorb.

A woman at the south edge of the town will give you a Soothe Bell. This item increases happiness when a Pokemon holds it — you can use it to more easily achieve happiness evolutions.

The Gym is inaccessible, so go to the Glitter Lighthouse in the SE corner of the city.

Once you talk to Jasmine, the ship in the harbor will take you to Cianwood City!

————-
CIANWOOD CITY
————-
Fishing: Poliwag and Shellder.

Two of the rocks here contain hidden items:

Go north from where you start, then left when you hit the sea. First rock you pass directly next to contains a Max Ether. Then go to the very north of the city. There are four rocks on a ledge. A revive is hidden in the second rock from the left.

A house with a sign is a Pharmacy. Talk to the clerk to send medicine to Jasmine’s Ampharos. You can also buy stuff here:
EnergyPowder – 500
HealPowder – 450
Energy Root – 800
Revival Herb – 2800
Poke Ball – 200

Herbs are powerful, but they decrease happiness of Pokemon you use them on, so bear that in mind.

Well, the ship has conveniently broken down and not even the teleport in the Pokemon Center works. We’ll have to hit the gym.

The Gym has 4 trainers (first two will fight you together, and second two can as well) plus Chuck.

After you beat him, Team Rocket will leave, letting you meet, fight, and capture Lugia. Be sure to save the game first. It’s only level 35 while previous legendaries were 50, so it will be a bit easier.

Go back to Red Rock Isle and take the second boat to Olivine City. There are several new things. For one, the ship in Olivine City will now connect to Cianwood City, Red Rock Isle, and Vermillion City (and the ship in Vermillion City that goes to Cinnabar Island and Valencia Island will now travel to Olivine City as well).

But more importantly, next part of the Safari Zone is unlocked!

Top right exit from the main Safari Zone is now open.

We never found Jynx, so this is the first encounter with that family. Elekid and Magby are new if you haven’t bred Electabuzz and Magmar. Lots of Pokemon to catch, at any rate.

Once you’re done, return to Olivine City. Both Olivine City and Cianwood City are now accessible through Johto teleport system.

Note that the only grass patch is almost at the end of the route. Kangaskhan is the only new Pokemon here, but you might want to grab a Tyrogue if you haven’t bred your own yet.

First of all, grab a Max Potion hidden in a boulder north of you. Then talk to the gentleman; he will give you an ICONIC Phanpy egg (it will hatch pretty quickly, too).

There’s also a Day Care here, mysteriously connected to all other Pokemon training spots.

To the south there’s a trainer.

JOHTO ITEM CHECK

This seems like a good time to update the item farming guide now that we have access to all Johto areas.

1. Consumables.
Berry Juice — Appears on Shuckle (always). Shuckles only appear in Safari Zone Johto, but on the other hand, they always have Berry Juice on them. Better to buy them, probably.
Moomoo Milk — Appears on Miltank (always). The only place to farm them is Route 39.
Sacred Ash — Appears on Ho-Oh (always). If you want to farm them (why?), they are on Route 1.

1. Berries.
Aspear Berry — Appears on Jynx and Smoochum (always). Best place to farm them is Ice Cave.
Rawst Berry — Appears on Vulpix, Growlithe and Arcanine (always). Best place to farm them is Route 8.
Leppa Berry — Appears on Clefairy and Clefable. Best place to farm them is Mt Moon 1F. Leppa Berry is common and you’ll find lots of them while trying to get their rarer items.
Oran Berry — Appears on Sentret and Furret, common item on Furret. Furrets are only in Safari Zone Johto, and pretty rare to boot, so you should probably farm Oran Berries (if you want) from Sentret on Route 33
Chilan Berry — Appears on Rattata and Raticate. Best place to farm them is Route 16 and Route 17.
Coba Berry — Appears on Sunkern. Best place to farm them is National Park.
Passho Berry — Appears on Donphan. Donphan only appears at Silver Conference and it’s rare to boot. I don’t suggest farming them for Passho Berries.
Payapa Berry — Appears on Mankey and Primeape. Best place to farm them is Route 7.
Persim Berry — Appears on Girafarig and Kecleon. Best place to farm them is Route 34.
Shuca Berry — Appears on Ponyta. Best place to farm them is Pokemon Mansion 3F.
Sitrus Berry — Appears on Furret. They only appear in Safari Zone Johto, and they are pretty rare.

2. Evolution items.
DeepSeaScale — Appears on Chinchou. Best place to farm them is fishing on Route 44. Needed to evolve Clamperl (into Gorebyss).
Dragon Scale — Appears on Horsea, Seadra, Dratini and Dragonair. Best place to farm them is fishing on Cinnabar Island, Mikan Island, Pummelo Island or Blue Rock Isle. Needed to evolve Seadra.
Electirizer — Appears on Electabuzz and Elekid. Best place to farm them is Navel Rock, floors 1F and 2F. Needed to evolve Electabuzz.
King’s Rock — Appears on Poliwhirl. Best place to farm them is fishing on Valencia Island. Needed to evolve Poliwhirl (into Politoed) and Slowpoke (into Slowking)
Magmarizer — Appears on Magmar and Magby. Best place to farm them is Pokemon Mansion B1F and Burned Tower (Burned Tower is MUCH more accessible, though). Needed to evolve Magmar.
Metal Coat — Appears on Magnemite and Magneton. Best place to farm them is Gringey City Power Plant. Needed to evolve Onix and Scyther. Also boosts Steel-type moves.
Moon Stone — Appears on Clefairy and Clefable. Best place to farm them is Mt Moon 1F.

3. Type-boosting items.
Hard Stone – Rock booster. Appears on Corsola. Best place to farm them is fishing on Yellow Rock Isle.
Poison Barb — Poison booster. Appears on Beedrill, Tentacool and Qwilfish. Best place to farm them is fishing on Ogi Isle.
Sharp Beak — Flying booster. Appears on Fearow and Doduo. Best place to farm them is Route 17.

On the left side is a MARKET. It has to be written in all caps, since it’s a really great MARKET selling lots of strange items.

There’s 7 vendors here altogether.

Lum Berry – 600
Sitrus Berry – 800

So, there’s finally an Incense shop that won’t stop working, but the most interesting shops are definitely Poke Ball shop and Evolution shop. This is a good time to mention what do you need them for. Lots of evolutions in main games works by trading, but here you just need to give the item to a Pokemon and then level it up. You also must do this at the right time.

During the DAY:
DeepSeaScale: Evolves Clamperl into Gorebyss.
King’s Rock: Evolves Poliwhirl into Politoed.
King’s Rock: Evolves Slowpoke into Slowking.
Magmarizer: Evolves Magmar into Magmortar.
Metal Coat: Evolves Onix into Steelix.
Prism Scale: Evolves Feebas into Milotic.
Protector: Evolves Rhydon into Rhyperior.
Sachet: Evolves Spritzee into Aromatisse
Whipped Dream: Evolves Swirlix into Slurpuff.
Oval Stone: Evolves Happiny into Chansey.

During the NIGHT:
DeepSeaTooth: Evolves Clamperl into Huntail.
Dragon Scale: Evolves Seadra into Kingdra.
Dubious Disc: Evolves Porygon2 into Porygon-Z.
Electirizer: Evolves Electabuzz into Electivire.
Metal Coat: Evolves Scyther into Scizor.
Reaper Cloth: Evolves Duskclops into Dusknoir.
Up-Grade: Evolves Porygon into Porygon2.
Razor Claw: Evolves Sneasel into Weavile.
Razor Fang: Evolves Gligar into Gliscor.

Either buy them in advance, or return here when you want to evolve one of these Pokemon.

Now for the Poke Balls. The important stat for a Poke Ball is its “catch rate”, which (I simplify) states how much better it is than standard Poke Ball. At this point, our basic type is Ultra Ball with catch rate of 2.

Level Ball: If your Pokemon is at the higher level than the opponent, Level Ball is already as good as an Ultra Ball. If you surpass double opponent’s level, it has catch rate 4, and if you surpass quadruple opponent’s level, it has catch rate 8. Actually, if you have some highly levelled Pokemon (and you should have, seeing as you already worked your way through two games’ full of content and seeing as the wild Pokemon levels reset in each region), Level Ball should actually become your standard Poke Ball. It will always be at least as good as an Ultra Ball (unless you’re trying to catch something that has higher level than you), but it’s actually four times cheaper! Just remember that you should send a high-leveled Pokemon out before you use it.

Lure Ball: The exact catch rate of a Lure Ball differs between main games and I’m not sure how much it is here, but should be either 3 or 5 — both better than Ultra Ball. However, there’s a catch: it only has this improved rate while fishing.

Moon Ball: Has catch rate 4 if you use it on a Pokemon from family that evolves with Moon Stone, that is Nidoran (both genders), Clefairy, Jigglypuff, Skitty, Munna and their relatives. This is pretty niche, seeing that at this point you are probably only missing Skitty and Munna, and even for them, Level Ball might be as good or better.

Friend Ball: Has catch rate of 1 (like standard Poke Ball) but comes with an extra effect: improved happiness for Pokemon who is caught by it. Which saves some time, at most. Not a priority.

Love Ball: Has catch rate of 8 — but only if you use it on something the same species and opposite gender as your Pokemon. Which is not really something you’d do often. Perhaps you could use it in conjunction with the Cute Charm ability (which improves a chance of meeting opposite-gender Pokemon) if you want to obtain a rare gender of some species.

Heavy Ball: Instead of having a flat catch rate, it gives additive bonuses based on opponent’s weight. Could be useful for some heavy Legendaries, as well as Rock and Steel Pokemon in general.

Fast Ball: Has catch rate of 4 if you want to catch a very fast Pokemon (base Speed stat 100 or higher). You don’t need Fast Balls for normal Pokemon, but some Legendaries have high Speed and Fast Balls might be a good choice for them. I’ll let you know when you meet them.

Repeat Ball – Has catch rate of 3 (or possibly 3.5) if the Pokemon is already registered in your Pokedex as caught. If you are just trying to fill the Pokedex, you won’t find much use here.

Timer Ball – This is an interesting one: it improves its catch rate with time. It starts on 1 and improves roughly by 0.30 per turn. On the 5th turn, it’s already better than Ultra Ball. If you let the battle go for 11 turns, Timer Ball will reach catch rate of 4 and it will be twice as good as Ultra Ball. Buy a lot of Timer Balls — they will be our main ammunition against Legendaries from now on. Just remember that if you have something with better than double level of the Legendary, Level Ball will still be better.

Nest Ball: This one works better on low-leveled Pokemon. The problem is that it won’t have any special effects on Pokemon of level 30 or higher, and against anything weaker, you should have something with high enough level to reach catch rate 4 with Level Ball (Nest Ball will always have worse catch rate than 4, unless you actually find a level 1 opponent). Don’t bother with Nest Balls — Level Balls are superior AND cheaper!

Net Ball: This is basically a variant of Lure Ball. Catch rate is 3 (or maybe 3.5?) against all Water types, and ALSO against Bug types. It’s more versatile than Lure Ball, but more expensive.

Dive Ball: Has catch rate 3.5 against water-dwelling Pokemon. Considering that this game doesn’t have Surf or Dive, it’s basically an expensive Lure Ball.

Luxury Ball: Alternative to Friend Ball; while Friend Ball improves the initial happiness of the Pokemon, Luxury Ball increases the rate it grows. All in all, neither seems too good, but Friend Ball gives you the benefits right away AND is cheaper so avoid Luxury Ball unless you want to give your Pokemon some bling.

Heal Ball: Has catch rate of 1 and heals caught Pokemon. This is basically useless. The only use would be if you wanted to use the captured Pokemon right away without sending it to the PC, and let’s be honest — with what you probably have right now, when would you do THAT?

Quick Ball: Has catch rate of 5 — but works only on the first turn of a battle. There’s probably no harm in maintaining a supply of these. Throw one whenever you encounter a new Pokemon, and if it won’t work (not even the high catch rate will help much if the Pokemon is not weakened at all), just switch to other types.

Dusk Ball: Has catch rate of 3.5 (or possibly just 3?) in a cave area, or at night.

So, my recommendations are:

1. Grab some Quick Balls, but don’t go overboard.
2. Buy lots of Level Balls and use them as your default Poke Balls from now on.
3. Buy lots of Timer Balls and use them to catch Legendary Pokemon. Buy Fast Balls for fast Legendary Pokemon and Heavy Balls for heavy Legendaries (those should help a ton).
4. Get some Lure Balls and Dusk Balls, MAYBE some Net Balls. You can use those when their conditions are met, but if your Pokemon has more than twice the level of target, Level Balls will STILL be better.
5. Ignore the rest, or use them as novelty.

Once we’re done with the MARKET, head to the eastern side of the city. There are several Team Magma grunts guarding the Museum. Beat them.

Go up past the Poke Mart. A house on the left has another Name Rater. The way north is blocked by a guy who wants us to support his girlfriend in a Pokemon Contest, so go there (it’s the house in the NW corner of the city). Before you enter, chat with the guy standing beside the Contest Hall and fight him.

ROUTE 110

Wild Pokemon: Oddish, Zigzagoon, *Plusle, Poochyena, Wingull, *Electrike, *Minun, *Gulpin. Level 12-14.
Fishing: Tentacool and Magikarp.

In the first grass patch to the right of the main path, there’ll be another trainer.
MINOR ICONIC
Youngster Marius
Spheal LV 14

This is an extremely long, but linear path.

First of all, go north until you come to a house. There’s a guy in front of it who will give you a quiz. The correct answers are:
1. Muk
2. Yellow
3. Illumise

Then you get all three correct, he’ll give you a Good Rod!

-GOOD ROD UPDATE-

OK, now that you have a Good Rod, you can catch lots of new Pokemon even in older areas, right?…..Right?……

Well, not exactly. Most fishing areas you have encountered until now have Good Rod catching the same two Pokemon as the Old Rod, with the only difference being that Old Rod has 7:3 chance of Common vs. Uncommon catch while Good Rod has 8:2 (so if you want the uncommon type, Old Rod is actually better!). Only a handful of areas has something new.

Pallet Town: Good Rod allows you to catch Tangela, Goldeen, or Poliwag.
Route 25: Good Rod allows you to catch Dragonite.
Safari Zone Kanto: Good Rod allows you to catch Seadra, Dragonair, and Tentacruel.
Safari Zone Johto: Good Rod allows you to catch Quagsire, Lanturn, or *Mantine.
Blackthorn City: Good Rod allows you to catch Horsea and Poliwag instead of Magikarp and Poliwag.
Route 110 (where you are now): Good Rod allows you to catch *Wailmer and Tentacool.

And that’s all — all other areas have nothing new compared to Old Rod. So grab a Mantine and a Wailmer. Remember that Mantine can be bred with Wave Incense to obtain Mantyke. In order to evolve Mantyke, you need to have a Remoraid in your party, so if you already evolved it into Octillery, you’ll need to get another one.

-END OF GOOD ROD UPDATE-

So, anyway, continuing along Route 110, you’ll encounter many trainers.

To the east is Lance, who needs your help to stop Team Magma and Team Aqua from unleashing Groudon and Kyogre. As it was the last time you teamed up with Lance, you must choose which team you want to face, and Lance will face the other team.

If you choose Team Magma, you will face:
TM Buck
Houndoom LV 32

TA Shelly
Carvanha LV 33
Crawdaunt LV 34
Walrein LV 33

Although, you can choose whichever route you want, battling with Team Aqua gives you the highest xp yeild, thanks to all the Walrein they have.

Regardless of which team you choose, after you beat them, you will have to face Groudon, and then Kyogre. Both are LV 35. Both of them are pretty heavy so you’ll get bonuses from using Heavy Balls, although Groudon weighs more than Kyogre so will have a higher bonus. However, their base Speed is under 100 so Fast Balls won’t work well here.

Note that Kyogre has Aqua Ring for healing and Groudon has Rest.

Once they’re caught, Lance thanks you and leaves, letting you go back to the captain who will now take you to Mossdeep City.

There’s one Move Tutor (Bug Bite, south from the entrance), and 4 items:

An Ultra Ball east from the entrance (go around the trees).
A Full Heal in the NE corner of the forest.
A Poke Ball hidden in the southern part of the forest. It’s in the top left tile of the big southern grass patch.
A Muscle Band at the end of the path east from the exit.

Continue south to another part of Izabe Island.

———————
IZABE ISLAND (RIYADO)

In the left house, there’s an old woman who will give you TM107 (Curse).

The right house has a trader who will trade your Magneton for his Togetic.

Go through the Gate House to Izabe Desert.

IZABE DESERT

Weather forecast: Sandstorm
Wild Pokemon: Trapinch, Claydol, Rhydon, Camerupt, Phanpy, Donphan, Vibrava, *Baltoy. Level 27-32.

Permanent Sandstorm here, so try to take something that’s immune to it. There’s 8 guys in the desert, all trainers except one in the middle.

Remember that the fossils can be revived either on Cinnabar Island or in Rustboro City. There are also three items: a Hard Stone in the very south, a second Hard Stone roughly in the middle, and a Muscle Band in the very north.

Enter the Izabe Cave in the eastern part of the desert.

In addition, there are two items: NeverMeltIce and BrightPowder. Apart from a few ice puzzles, nothing major.

Note: The only puzzle that might present some difficulties is how to pass the second ice field. Do it like this:

1. Get the BrightPowder — that is the easy part since most ways through the field can get you in this area.

2. Go to the left edge of this area, second tile from the bottom.

3. Go left, down, and right to end up at the correct exit.

At the end, get out to a third part of Izabe Island.

———————
IZABE ISLAND (CEROSI)
———————

There is a move tutor outside the Pokemon Center that will teach you Icy Wind.

Not much else to do here. Talk to the sailor in the NE corner to be offered a ride — you can go to Mossdeep, Izabe, or Sootopolis.

Talking to this sailor unlocks the ferry system around the Izabe Island. The right ship in Mossdeep City can now take you to Izabe Front (start of the island) or Izabe Back (here), and the ship at the start of the island can now take you here as well as back to Mossdeep City. Similarly, the “Izabe” choice on this ride will take you to the start of the island.

But we’re going to press on and go to Sootopolis City!

—————
SOOTOPOLIS CITY
—————
Fishing (Old Rod): Tentacool and Wailmer.
Fishing (Good Rod): Surskit, Sharpedo, and Tentacruel.

Go north and enter the first house after the Poke Mart. The two guys here will give you an Ether and an Elixir.

Go across the bay, past the Gym. Grab a Protein at the end of the path.

Nothing else can be done here at the moment, so hit the Gym.

This Gym is fairly open. It has six trainers before you face Juan.

When you defeat him, you’ll receive the Rain Badge and TM96 (Bubble Beam).

Go to the Poke Center. You’ll learn that May wants you to come to Pacifidlog Town.

Beating Juan will unlock a new teleport upgrade. Also, if you go to Fallabor Town, you will find a LV 50 Jirachi next to the Contest Hall! Catch it!

Note that Jirachi has a base Speed of 100, meaning that Fast Ball has a bonus against it. However, don’t use Heavy Balls — despite Jirachi being a Steel type, it’s actually very light.

Also note that you might need multiple attempts. You can’t just throw Jirachi to 1 HP using False Swipe — it has Double-Edge and can accidentally KO itself.

Take the ship from Sootopolis City to Pacifidlog Town (note that you must get the scene in the Poke Center first).

PACIFIDLOG TOWN

EVER GRANDE CONFERENCE

This small island has basically five “lumps” with various features.

SE lump: This is where you start. You can sail back from here.

Central area: Two shops here.

On the left:
Cheri Berry – 200
Chesto Berry – 200
Pecha Berry – 200

The Pokemon here are mainly EXP fodder. We haven’t found Shelgon’s line in the wild yet, but there will be catchable Bagons soon.

NW lump: A trainer you can beat.

You start with the Elimination (leftmost exit).

Alright, so we’ve got to Top 8 (where, once again, we’re stopping). When you go out, one of Professor Oak’s assistants meets you and asks you to go see the Professor. The ship in Ever Grande Conference will now take you straight to Littleroot Town, so you can just teleport to Pallet Town and go visit him. He will tell you that Battle Frontier opened in Kanto. So, the third generation is not over yet — we still have to deal with this before we get to Sinnoh!

But before we start with Battle Frontier, some new Legendary Pokemon can now be obtained! But even before THAT, you can fight Tracey on the first floor of Oak’s lab.
ICONIC BATTLE

Now go to Route 121 (west of Lilycove City). Go west until you find the fishing platform (if you were catching Clamperl/Luvdisc here, you know where it is). Latias and Latios are now on this platform and you can fight them and catch them.

Both Latias and Latios are fast, so Fast Balls are preferable. They are troublesome because they both know Recover (so it’s hard to keep them at low HP) and Psycho Shift (so they can pass status problems to your Pokemon instead).

——————————————
START OF GENERATION 3: THE BATTLE FRONTIER

VIRIDIAN CITY

Surprise! The Gym that got destroyed is now standing again! There are two important people here. One of them is Scott, the owner of the Battle Frontier. The other is Agatha, member of the Kanto Elite Four. Scott asks you to battle and beat Agatha, saying that if you suceed, he will invite you to take the Battle Frontier challenge.

You can now fight Agatha from the Elite Four who stands in front of it.
ICONIC BATTLE:

Gengar LV 50

After you beat her, you will again talk to Scott, who congratulates you and gives you the Frontier Pass.

You can also visit the Contest Hall in Saffron City now (it was blocked previously). Like in the others, there’s a Move Tutor — this one teaches Zen Headbutt. There’s also a Trianer coordinator from the anime for you to fight.

Then go west to Route 4. You might remember that there was an item here that you couldn’t get before, but now part of the fence disappeared and you can grab a Life Orb.

Go a bit wast from the fence. There is a path to the north. Take it to get to the Battle Factory.

————–
BATTLE FACTORY
————–
Wild Pokemon: Growlithe, Beedrill, Graveler, Golem, Geodude, Arcanine, Onix, Jigglypuff, Cleffa, Clefairy. Level 35-38.

Berry Juice – 100
Max Potion – 2500
Full Restore – 3000
Revive – 1500

Liza, the Charizard girl is here again to act as a Day Care point.

Enter the building.

Inside looks like a smaller version of the various Pokemon Leagues — you have a Poke Mart and a Poke Center in there, and a guy who lets you in to fight.

Note that despite what people here say, you don’t get any rental Pokemon — you fight Noland with your normal team.

So, there’s a total of 9 eggs you can get (despite the claims that they will give you one as a gift, you can grab all nine). They are: Cleffa, Eevee, Igglybuff, Pichu, Magby, Makuhita, Smoochum, Vulpix, and Elekid. You probably don’t NEED any of them (maybe except Eevee since you need a LOT of those to complete the Pokedex), but hey, they are free.

The SW corner of the island (before the pier) has a hidden Iron.

In the SE corner of this Route is Celebi! Fight and catch it. Celebi’s Speed Stat is 100, so Fast Balls work on it. Actually, it shouldn’t be that hard — Celebi has much higher catch rate than most Legendaries.

While you won’t get anything in the second house, the tile just south from the door hides a Rare Candy.

Fishing (Old Rod): Goldeen and Quagsire.

When catching a Combee, make sure you get a female! Only female Combees can evolve. The best way to ensure it is to have a male Pokemon with Cute Charm ability leading the party. The possible Pokemon with this ability that you can have at the moment are Clefairy line, Jigglypuff line, Skitty line, and maybe Sylveon or Lopunny if you’ve evolved one. All those Pokemon can have another ability and/or be female, so look through your collection to see what you have.

Right at the start, check a dirt patch to find 10 Oran Berries.

This is a big and fairly open route. You’ll encounter 8 trainers as you make your way north, including a double battle that can be fought twice.

Note Burmy. You might want more of those because it can evolve in several different ways: males evolve into Mothim (Bug/Flying), but females evolve into Wormadam whose type depends on the “cloak” your Burmy has — fighting in grass will make it evolve into Bug/Grass, fighting in caves into Bug/Ground, and fighting in cities into Bug/Steel.

This is a port city built around a bay — there’s a western part and eastern part connected by a bridge.

Go around the town first. The second house you come to has a Move Deleter. The library (north of western part) contains an old guy who will give you a Pearl. Old Chateau (north of eastern part) has a book. Read it to be thrown into a battle with Rotom. Catch it. (If you don’t, you can always buy it for 9999 coins in Veilstone City Game Corner.)

There’s also a Spooky Plate in the room.

Plate Collection: 13/17

Go south from the eastern part to reach a clearing with Cresselia (LV 40) and Darkrai (LV 40). Catch them. Darkrai is fast, so Fast Ball is preferred, but Cresselia is not. Neither of them benefits from Heavy Ball.

The Gym has 6 trainers plus Byron.

This is a fairly small city with the Gym in the middle.

Return to the stairs and take them, preparing for another normal day…until you black out. You come too, along with Dawn and Brock, in the middle of a cave. The Lake Guardians need you!

Once you catch them, Cynthia and Looker congratulate you, and mention that Cyrus dissapeared into the portal that they created as well. Cynthia then guides you back outside.

You reappear on Route 222 down in the beach area, in front of the Air Battle Master’s house, who also functions as a Pokemon Day Care. The house next to him has a guy who will give you three Nest Balls.

SUNNYSHORE CITY

Fishing (Old Rod): Krabby and Corphish.

The green Poke Mart clone is a Stone Shop. It has two clerks. The upper one sells:
Fire Stone – 2100
Water Stone – 2100
Thunderstone – 2100
Leaf Stone – 2100
Moon Stone – 4000

The bottom one sells:
Sun Stone – 3000

Dusk Stone – 2500
Dawn Stone – 2500
Ice Stone – 2100

This is the first place where you can get an Ice Stone, but it will still be a long time before you’ll need it.

Next to the stone shop, you can grab the zap plate.

!!! Plate Collection: 17/17 !!!

There’s also a Thunderstone, but you’ll have to go around to get it — and by that I mean that you’ll have to go to the NE corner of the city and follow the narrow path along the eastern edge.

On the eastern side of town, there is a ship guarded by a trainer, who will give you the Power Belt, and the Power Band.

Alright, so that’s all Sinnoh gyms done, the Sinnoh teleport system is complete, and we can continue to the League — but before that, there’s a whole lot of smaller things to do.

1. Dawn appears in the eastern part of the town, on the path to the Sinnoh League ship. Fight her.

2. The guy with a Skarmory close to the tower will now offer to fly you to the three lakes (Lake Verity, Lake Valor, and Lake Acuity). You’ll always end up on an island with the cave where you can find a Legendary Pokemon: Lake Verity has Mesprit, Lake Valor has Azelf, and Lake Acuity has Uxie. All of them are LV 50.
3. Go back to Route 222 and go to the beach. There’s a sandbar you can get to, which now has Heatran and Shaymin, both LV 50.
4. Mt. Coronet opens — go to Hearthome City and talk to the girl with Abra in the SW corner. You can find Giratina there at LV 50. This is also one of the places where you can evolve Magneton and Nosepass. There are no random battles, so you’d have to level them up using a Rare Candy unless you want to get EXP by killing Giratina. (You don’t.) Be sure to also grab the Griseous Orb in the corner.
5. With Dialga and Palkia in your party, go to Celestic Town and talk to the people in the Historic Center. One will give you the Lustrous Orb for Palkia, and one will give you the Adamant Orb for Dialga (you have to put the specific Pokemon in your front slot).

As for recommended Pokeballs, you should use Fast Balls for Azelf and Shaymin and Heavy Balls for Heatran, Dialga, and Giratina. Palkia is both fast AND heavy, but Heavy Balls are probably better. Mesprit and Uxie will be probably best dealt with with Timer Balls.

With everything done and eight new Legendary Pokemon, go to Sunnyshore City and take the ship to the Lily of the Valley Island.

————————-
LILY OF THE VALLEY ISLAND
————————-
Wild Pokemon: Lunatone, Solrock, Claydol, Vileplume, Voltorb, Pineco, Onix, Golem, Mantine, Gloom. Level 35-38.

This island is formed from four smaller connected islands. You start at the SE island. The NE island has shops, and by now you should know what they are: Incenses, Berries, Drinks, and Team Rocket shop. No real point saying what they sell since you probably have all those items you need and (except Team Rocket shop) they are all available elsewhere.

That’s as far as you can get. As usual, once you leave the island, you’re no longer allowed to come back.

Return back home to Pallet Town and talk to Professor Oak to start Gen 5!

But before we go to Unova, there are a few more Legendary Pokemon to get:

1. Go to Lake Verity (through Route 201, west from Sandgem Town) and fight Manaphy there.
2. Go to Lake Valor and fight Arceus there. Take him in your party and give him various plates to register his different forms in the Pokedex.
3. Go to Snowpoint City and talk to Brandon by the Temple. He will give you Regigigas without a fight.

Manaphy should be caught with Fast Balls while Heavy Balls are good for Arceus.

Now head to Pallet town and talk to Oak to get a new Gen 5 outfit and and a new destination: Unova. Head to Viridian City and take the blimp to — Nuvema Town!

STRIATON CITY
————-
Fishing (Old Rod): *Basculin.
Fishing (Good Rod): Swanna and *Alomomola.

Basculin has two distinct forms (with red and blue stripe). Both can be caught here.
Swanna is an evolved version, you can catch its base form (Ducklett) later.

The house west from where you come in has a guy who will give you a Great Ball.

A biker in SE corner of the city will give you a Dusk Ball.

The SW corner of the town has X Speed.

Go west to the park, then south past the bridge to find a Great Ball.

East from the town is the Dreamyard. You can catch *Munna and Musharna there. The person on the right will also give you an Eviolite.

The Gym has no normal trainers, just three leaders (and a restaurant, for some reason). You must fight them in a given order: Chili (on the left) first, then Cress (on the right), and finally Cilan (in the middle).

Fishing (Old Rod): Basculin.
Fishing (Good Rod): Swanna and Alomomola.

First of all, Darmanitan (evolved form of Darumaka) has a special “Zen Mode” alternate form. However, you can’t get that yet: you need a Darmanitan with its Hidden Ability for Zen Mode, and Darumaka and Darmanitan here will only have its normal ability. As for Scolipede, that’s actually a third-level evolution. Don’t worry, you will be able to get its base form, Venipede, pretty soon.

First thing you’ll find here is a preschool up the stairs to the north. Fight the two trainers here.

Continue west to Nacrene City.

————
NACRENE CITY
————

At the west edge of the town, there are two houses with a fence made from bushes. The easternmost bush in the horizontal line hides a Revive.

Wild Pokemon: *Sewaddle, *Cottonee, Galvantula, Patrat, *Venipede, Woobat, *Petilil, Pidove. Level 14-17.
Galvantula is an evolved form of Joltik — you’ll soon be able to get one of your own. Venipede is the base form of Scolipede you might have met before.

The main path has 4 trainers on it (two single and a pair of double trainers).
Youngster Homer
Roggenrola LV 14

Crush Kin Kentaro & Lee
Timburr LV 16 x2

Aroma Lady Shery
Munna LV 15

Youngster Zachary
Venipede LV 14
Lillipup LV 14

Youngster Keita

Some Pokemon, Petilil in particular, are more common in here. You can also get a Ducklett, base form of Swanna. There’s one new Pokemon, Gothitelle. It’s rare and it’s an evolved form — wait a bit, you will be able to get its base form, Gothita, soon.
This is another location where Eevee can evolve into Leafeon.

From the start, go west. You’ll meet a pair of double trainers.
Twins Mayo & May
Sewaddle LV 16 x2

The path north is blocked for now, so continue west and fight a trainer.
Youngster Sammy
Munna LV 17

After, you’ll reach a big grass patch with a trainer.
Lass Millie
Pidove LV 16
Purrloin LV 16

There are three items in this patch as well: a Super Potion is visible in the NW corner, but the other two items are hidden:

Super Potion: Start in the NE corner and go west along the fence. Search the first clear tile you come to.
Ether: Start in the SE corner and go west along the fense. Search the second clear tile you come to.

Next, you come to another grass patch with a trainer.
Pokemon Ranger Audra
Pansage LV 18

North from there is a Great Ball.

Then another big grass patch and another trainer.
Lass Eva
Woobat LV 15 x3

After that, you’ll see a clear area with another trainer.
Pokemon Ranger Forrest
Herdier LV 18

Go down the stairs to the SE.

This grass patch has another trainer.
Youngster Nicholas

Once you cross the bridge, continue north to Castelia City.

————-
CASTELIA CITY
————-

Now that’s a lot of Venipedes. You can fight them, but there’s no real point since they don’t disappear after you defeat them. For now, only one house and the Poke Center are accessible — all other places are blocked by the Venipedes.

The Poke Center has a guy who will give you a Zoom Lens. The house has another battle with Team Rocket.
ICONIC BATTLE
TR’s Jessie & James
Woobat LV 18
Yamask LV 20

Once you beat them, the Venipedes will disappear and you will be able to access the rest of the city.

The sailor in the SE corner will give you an evolution stone based on how you answer his question:
Pansage – Leaf Stone
Pansear – Fire Stone
Panpour – Water Stone

You can only do this once, but at this point, you can buy as many of these as you want, so it doesn’t really matter what you say.

A little girl on the central street will give you a Destiny Knot.

The guy in the NE corner of the city sells Casteliacones for 100. It’s basically a Full Heal, except much cheaper in exchange for only being available at one place.

So that’s for the outside of the city, but what’s in the buildings?

Third floor sells:

Nice, but nothing new.

Studio Castella (the house on the right side of the eastern street) — nothing important.

The NW house on the eastern street — a man who will give you TM12 (Taunt).

Now for the Gym. There are four trainers plus Burgh.

Wild Pokemon: *Emolga, *Cubchoo, *Joltik, *Audino, Scrafty, Mandibuzz, *Larvesta, Simisear, Scolipede. Level 15-18.

Cubchoo is the base form of Beartic. Joltik is the base form of Galvantula you have probably met before. Scrafty is the evolved form of Scraggy, but you should already get one from the egg the Day Care lady gave you. Mandibuzz is the evolved form of Vullaby. It will take some time before you can catch a Vullaby, so if you want to breed a Mandibuzz, that’s also an option.
Finally, Simisear is the evolved form of Pansear. You’ll be able to catch a Pansear soon.

There is a Move Tutor for Role Play to the left of the house. Enter the house (Club Battle). You need to fight four trainers.

There’s also a vendor who sells berries out of a truck. Probably ilegally harvested, I’d wager.

When you get to the bridge, talk to the guy there. If you have finished both the Nimbasa Gym AND the Battle Subway, he’ll let you cross. Continue west and talk to another bridge attendant to get to Driftveil City.

BTW, you can fish from the bridge, though the only Pokemon you can catch there with either rod is Ducklett.

The Poke Center has a trader who will trade his Zorua for your Minccino.

On the way to the gym, you’ll run into a Move Tutor for the move Drill Run.
Finally, talk to Clay in front of the Gym. He doesn’t want to fight cuz the world might be ending on Milos Island — bummer. Go to the southern part of the city and talk to the sailor. He wouldn’t help you before but now he’ll take you to the Milos Island.

This island is one long, winding road with lots of trainers — and there are also the three Legendary Forces of Nature for you to capture (all three are fast, so Fast Balls are preferred). Tornadus and Thunderus are LV 32, while Landorus is LV 35.
The sequence is 2 trainers:

– and finally Landorus.

Once you fight Landorus, you’ll be transported back to Driftveil City. You can still take the boat back, but the trainers will be gone now and the weather will calm down — the only reason to come back is to fight wild Pokemon or fish.

Back in Driftveil City, fight Chili who now blocks the way to the Gym, and finally get inside.

Note that in order to evolve Shelmet and Karrablast, you must level them up when you have both in your party. Both can evolve in the presence of either the base OR the evolved form of the other, so you can’t miss on it.

Start by going west past a bridge. Fight a trainer in the first grass patch.

But don’t go there yet — go west first.

Hug the northern wall and go west until you hit a corner — a Full Heal is hidden in that corner. Continue north to grab a visible Thunderstone, then west to a ladder back to 1F. You’ll appear in a small area with a healer, a trainer, and an item (a Magnet).

——-
ROUTE 9

Wild Pokemon: Ferroseed, Tynamo, Gothita, Cottonee, Whimsicott, Zebstrika, Krokorok. Level 30-33.

Each part also has one visible and one hidden item.

In the northern part, the visible item is a Full Restore. To get the hidden item, some searching is needed. Find an L-shaped group of trees in the western part of the Route. Stand east from the easternmost tree there, walk three tiles south and check the tile to the east for a Lemonade.

The visible item in the southern part (way west from where you enter this part) is a HP Up. To find the hidden item (a Max Ether), go to the middle of the three big grass patches there. Its northern edge has three connected grass tiles and one single one. Go to the middle of the three and search the tile south of you.

The path to the east is impassable for now, but you can enter the big building which is a… Shopping Mall? Sure, why not.

We’ve seen enough of these by now, so just quick notes: 2F has some basic Poke Mart items (healing/Poke Balls) 3F has a Move Tutor (Last Resort). 4F sells evolution stones (all except for Ice Stone) and 5F sells Vitamins and X- items. There’s also a guy on 5F who will give you a Thunderstone.

That’s all for now. Return to the sailor on Route 8 and sail to Virbank City.

VIRBANK CITY

Fishing (Old Rod): Frillish.

House next to a Gym has a guy who will trade your Koffing for his Gurdurr.

Go north. Next to the Poke Center is a group of vases. The one in the center has a Full Heal in it.

And there’s also Meloetta. Talk to it and it will come with you.

With Meloetta in tow, you can enter the Gym. The Gym has just two trainers and Roxie.

When you leave the Gym, you’ll meet Cynthia who invites you to Undella Town. Unova teleport system gets updated. Which is a good thing since we have just gotten our 8th Unova Badge and that means we have unlocked some more stuff!

At this point, you can go and fight the Musketeers – Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion.

Cobalion (LV 50): Go to Driftveil City and leave to the west to Route 6. Go past first three bridges (sigh…) and then north and east past yet another bridge to a cave. Cobalion will be there.

Terrakion (LV 50): Go to Icirrus City and enter Twist Mountain again. Pass through the first passage and you’ll be in the central area again. Go south, and then west, to the cave that was blocked by rocks. You’ll end up in Twist Mountain 4F; this area has a Glacial Rock so you can evolve Eevee into Glaceon there. It has normal random encounters and Terrakion is here.

Virizion (LV 50): Go to Nacrene City and leave to the west to the Pinwheel Forest. Continue to the second area and go north along the road. Turn east. Grab a Big Root in the grass patch and continue east and north into the trees. You’ll get to a glade where Virizion is.

Cobalion and Terrakion are heavy so Heavy Balls are preferable. Virizion is not heavy enough, but it’s fast, so use Fast Balls for it.

When you’re done, go to Nimbasa City. You can now leave through the NE exit.

ROUTE 16

Wild Pokemon: Rattata, Foongus, Pidove, Onix, Magnemite, Blitzle, Gothita, Hydreigon. Level 31-35.

Go to the NW corner of the town. Before entering Cynthia’s Villa, stand east to the sign and go one tile east, two tiles north and check the bush east of you for a Big Nugget.

Crustle LV 46

When you win, he will give you the Super Rod!

So, what’s Super Rod for? In the locations you’ve seen so far, it won’t actually help you all that much; usually, you’ll be able to catch the same Pokemon you can get with Old Rod or Good Rod, except that they will be 10 levels higher.

Generally, if you’re trying to catch a particular Pokemon, the Super Rod will improve your chances ONLY if you want to catch the “rarer” Pokemon with Old Rod. The most important example is probably Route 121 in Hoenn where Super Rod gives you a better chance to get a Luvdisc for potential Heart Scale farming.
In all other situations, however, a specific Pokemon is easier to catch with one of the other Rods.

The only exception from this general rule is Pallet Town, where you can get Horsea and Staryu with Super Rod, but none of the others.

Go to Nuvema Town and talk to Professor Juniper to start the N arc. Note that Vetress City will permanently close once you do that so if you want to do any shopping/leveling there, do it before.

After talking to Professor Juniper, go to Virbank City and take the newly opened western exit to Route 20.

From the start, go west and north. You can fight and catch Genesect here at LV 50. Genesect is neither heavy nor fast, so Timer Balls are the way to go.

Then go back and continue west along the Route. There are three trainers and one item (an Expert Belt) on the way, all quite easy to see.

The two daycare people are near the exits, though without their usual house.

The Northeastern house has a guy who will give you the Burn, Chill, Douse, and Shock Drives for Genesect if you talk to him with Genesect in slot one of your party.

South of the pokemon center is a Move Tutor for Secret Sword.

Nothing much here — go to the Gym and fight Cheren.

Beating Colress will update the Unova Teleport system for the last time, and then you can fight Reshiram and capture it at LV 55. Reshiram is heavy, so use Heavy Balls.

After you exit the ruins, you’ll be greeted by Alexa (no, not the AI), who will tell you about a new region that you should check out called Kalos. That’s sound advice, but we still have some last minute things to do in Unova first; namely, catching Victini.

Head to Castelia City and exit north to Route 4. Go into the desert and make your way to the NE corner of this area. Victini will be there, our last Gen 5 Legendary at LV 50! Fast Balls are recommended.

And that’s it for Unova! Go talk to Oak and then it’s back to Viridian City. Take the blimp to its new destination, Lumiose City!

—————————————
START OF GENERATION 6: THE KALOS REGION
—————————————

————
LUMIOSE CITY
————

While previous generations started us in a small backwater town, Kalos starts with a bang. Lumiose City is the big city place analogical to Celadon or Goldenrod, and, of course, it has a lot of places to visit, even though you are limited (for now) to its southern half.

It’s also very round.

Let’s start in the SW part. There’s a lab of Professor Sycamore. It has the region teleport so you can quickly go anywhere else.

The house NW from the Lab contains TM92 (Trick Room).

Directly east from this house, across the street, is a store. It has an Incense shop and a Vitamin shop.

Go to the Gym (it’s the tall building in the middle of the city that looks nothing like Gyms in the other regions). Talk to Clemont and Bonnie in front of the Gym and fight him.
ICONIC BATTLE
Gym Leader Clemont
Bunnelby LV 5

Then go west and pass behind the tall house to a ICONIC Froakie. It may not look it, but this one has its Hidden Ability. It will turn into Battle Bond when it becomes Greninja. That’s good, as you’ll also need a Greninja to get an item later.

Go there and talk to Professor Sycamore to get a Mega Ring. We’re now capable of performing Mega Evolution! If we can get the relevant items, that is.

There will be a Poke Ball on the table that contains the second Kalos starter, Fennekin. Grab it.

The southern exit from the city was blocked by a fight, but after you obtain Mega Ring AND talk to Clemont, it will clear. Go south. You end up in a gate building (how long it is since we’ve actually seen one of those?). Continue south to Route 4.

——-
ROUTE 4
——-
Wild Pokemon: *Fletchling, *Bunnelby, *Inkay, *Dedenne, Rhyhorn, Venipede, Pidgey, Oddish, Volbeat, Illumise. Level 3-5.

The north part of the Route has two trainers.

That’s all here, continue south to Santalune City.

SANTALUNE CITY

There is a small plateau with an inaccessible house on the western side. Check the second tile from the right under the house for a Super Potion.

The house in the NE corner is a school. Talk to the rightmost child to get an X Defend.

The house in the SW corner has a guy who will trade his Farfetch’d for your Bunnelby.

Espurr’s evolved form, Meowstic, has great gender differences, including different abilities and movesets — also not implemented yet.

Yep, after the two locations with Loudred way back, we finally have a spot for Whismur, if you waited for it…

This Route has a bit unusual layout: it has a central path and two side areas, on the eastern and western side. But the side areas can’t be accessed from the Route itself.

Start by going north along the main path, fighting two trainers along the way.

Beat her and you’ll get the Poke Flute. This updates the Kalos teleport system. With the Poke Flute, you can now fight the Snorlax who blocks western exit from Camphrier Town (note that this Snorlax, like all wild Snorlax, has Leftovers, so you might want to steal that).

Now hit the Gym. This is the kind with teleport maze, similar to Saffron City back in Kanto. If we mark the rooms like this:

1SE <-> 4SW

Back in Snowbelle City, go back to the Gym and fight Wulfric again.
GYM LEADER WULFRIC Round 2 (3v3)
Bergmite LV 50
Avalugg LV 50
Abomasnow LV 53 (Mega)

He’ll give you the Iceberg Badge, TM120 (Icicle Crash), and an Abomasite.

Our goal is Lumiose City now; the Kalos journey ends where it began. We could teleport there, but there’s still one Route we haven’t been to, Route 22 west of Snowbelle City. So let’s go there!

——–
ROUTE 22
——–
Wild Pokemon: Scyther, Ursaring, Altaria, Spinda, Floatzel, Lombre, Swablu, Dragonair. Level 43-47.

Go west. You’ll go to the fork where you can go along the path to the north, or jump the ledge to the west. We’ll take the north path first.

Go east. You’ll have to fight a Team Flare member.
Team Flare Arnold
Houndour LV 50 x2
Houndoom LV 50

Note that that’s an exception — most of Team Flare members in the city do not fight, they just block your way. Poke Center is inaccessible at the moment, but remember that there is one in the League building.

Like to the east — blocked. You have to continue south instead.

After you pass the exit west from the city, you’ll have to fight another Team Flare Lieutenant.
ICONIC BATTLE
Team Flare Aliana
Druddigon LV 55

Next fight is in the southern part of the city.
Team Flare Coy

You’ll end up in the city with all the characters from Kalos. You’ll automatically talk to Professor Sycamore, and that’s the end of the Kalos storyline!

Before we return to Oak, there are a few things to do.

First of all, once Lumiose City resets to default, there is a trainer in front of the Lumiose Gym who wants to challenge Clemont…he’ll have to settle for you for now.
MINOR ICONIC
Youngster Alvin
Vivillon LV 50
Cubone LV 50
Pyroar LV 50
some new Legendary Pokemon to get.

First of all, go to the Lumiose store (the building west of Poke Center) and go to the top floor. There will be three guys who will gift you Hoopa, Diancie, and Volcanion, each at LV 50. In the middle of the room, there is the Diancite to Mega-Evolve Diancie.

Next, teleport to Couriway Town and go south to Route 19. Enter the Terminus Cave and go to the back (the spot where you’ve fought Team Rocket). You can now fight and capture Zygarde there at LV 60. Heavy Balls are indicate.

Return to Pallet Town and talk to Oak to start the Alola arc!

—————————————
START OF GENERATION 7: THE ALOLA REGION
—————————————

****************************
* DAY 1 — STARTING SCHOOL *
****************************

——-
ROUTE 1
——-
Wild Pokemon: *Grubbin, *Pikipek, Alolan Exeggutor, Spearow, Corsola, *Sandygast, Bonsly, Sudowoodo, Bewear. Level 2-5.
Fishing (Old Rod): *Pyukumuku and Slowpoke.
Fishing (Good Rod): *Bruxish, *Wishiwashi, and *Dewpider.
Fishing (Super Rod): *Pyukumuku, Slowpoke, *Bruxish, *Wishiwashi, and *Dewpider.

There will be eventually a chance to catch an Alolan Exeggcute (looks the same as normal, but evolves into Alolan Exeggutor), as well as Stufful (evolves into Bewear).
Grubbin evolves into Charjabug at level 20. To obtain its third stage, Vikavolt, you need to level it in special magnetic field. Currently, you have access to three such areas: Route 207 and Mt. Coronet in Sinnoh, and Chargestone Cave in Unova.

Wishiwashi’s ability doesn’t work yet.

Go out of the blimp station and talk to your mom to get her out of your way. (Sadly, this technique usually doesn’t work in real life.)

There is a row of houses north of you. Sadly, only one of them can be entered, and even there, there’s nothing in interest.

You can now go either south or north. South is grass and beach where you can fish. A fisherman on the beach will give you a Poke Ball and there’s an Awakening in the grass. But the Lab is blocked by a Litten and you can’t get in. So you have to enter the big building in the north part: the Pokemon School.

However, before you can enter, you’ll have your first encounter with Alola’s baddie team. Team Skull.
ICONIC BATTLE
Team Skull Tupp, Rapp, & Zipp
Salandit LV 3
Yungoos LV 3
Zubat LV 3

After they leave, you can enter the school. And it actually IS A big building.

Start by going straight north. You’ll end up in a classroom which is the center of the whole school. Leave through the NE exit to reach Samson’s office. Talk to him and give him the Egg.

For future reference, the western exit from the classroom takes you to a room with a healing machine and there’s a PC right at the entrance.

Samson offers to let you join the school…provided you get parental permission. Go out and south to the beach. Grab the Poke Ball from fisherman if you haven’t done so yet. Your mom will be by the sea south of the lab. Talk to her to enroll in the Pokemon School.

The Lab will now be open. Go in to meet Kukui, and he’ll show you around, including meeting a cute little Rockruff that’s currently staying there. His house also contains a region teleport. He’ll give you a Rotom Pokedex.

Now, the Alolan part of the game works a bit differently than the others. You will be a part of a class and instead of moving freely around the region, you’ll be going on… missions, I guess. Or school trips. The characters living on Route 1 (Kukui, Samson, and your classmates) have dialogues that frequently change. There are two main ways to advance the story: going to school and sleeping in your bed (that also heals your party).

So let’s head towards the school. Outside the main doors, you’ll have your first meeting with Tapu Koko, who will give you a Z-ring. This can be used to activate superpowered Z-Moves.

Now enter the school, and sit on your seat (the middle one in the top row). You’ll get your first mission: explore the Melemele forest to the east.

Note that if you ever forget what to do, come back and look at the board behind Kukui. It will give you your current objective.

—————
MELEMELE FOREST
—————
Wild Pokemon: Pikipek, Grubbin, *Mimikyu, Trumbeak, *Bounsweet, *Morelull, Shiinotic, *Oranguru, *Drampa, Alolan Exeggutor, Toucannon, Bewear. Level 2-5.

Go to the right and fight a trainer.
Youngster Jimmy
Alolan Rattata LV 3
Caterpie LV 3

This is a pretty open area. Go south, past another trainer to a side path.
Lass Audrey
Yungoos LV 4

Go east and grab a Potion at the end of the path.

Return to the trainer and go north. Fight another trainer who guards a Revive.
Lass Madison
Wingull LV 5

SE from there is an ICONIC Rowlet, free for taking.

Continue east. The rest of the forest is one long winding path. Fight a trainer along this path and continue.
Youngster Kevin
Grubbin LV 5

In the NE corner you’ll find Kukui. Talk to him to finish the mission. Grab a Full Heal south from Kukui and return to class.

Return to class. The next part is a battle. You need to battle one of your classmates. Let’s meet them, since you’ll see those characters a lot from now on:

Sophocles: SW seat, has bushy orange hair.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Sophocles
Togedemaru LV 7

Lillie: S seat, has a white hat and long blonde hair, but isn’t actually a trainer (yet).

Mallow: SE seat, has green pigtails.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Mallow
Bounsweet LV 7

Lana: NW seat, has blue hair.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Lana
Popplio LV 7

Kiawe: NE seat, has brown hair.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Kiawe
Charizard LV 6
Turtonator LV 7

For this assignment, you can fight any of them except Lillie (who, as she says, is not actually a trainer). You can only fight one of them but you probably don’t really need the EXP from all of them at this point, do you?

After battling, Kukui will explain to you about Z Moves and Z-Crystals and tell you that completing Island challenges is a good way to collect them.

That’s all for now. Let’s head to Bed (at Kukui’s lab).

*********************************
* DAY 2 – HAU’OLI CITY AND LANA *
*********************************

When you wake up, Kukui has a new mission for you: Go to Hau’oli City and meet with Lana. Hau’oli City is west from Route 1; the exit is now open.

————
HAU’OLI CITY
————
Fishing (Old Rod): Poliwag and Slowpoke.
Fishing (Good Rod): Corsola, Sharpedo, and Pelipper.
Fishing (Super Rod): Poliwag, Slowpoke, Corsola, Sharpedo, and Pelipper.

The first house you come to is blocked off. The second house is where Sophocles lives. Nothing to do here now, but remember it for future reference.

South from there (down the stairs) is a beach. Find two hidden items:

1) Stand on the right tile of the right set of stairs. Go four steps south and check the tile to your east for a Fresh Water.

2) In SE corner of the beach is a line of four tiles with sea on both west and east. Search the second one from the left for a Pearl.

After that, talk to the two guys on the beach. One gives you a potion, the other is a Move Tutor for Giga Drain.

So, go back up stairs and west along the path. Next you’ll see the Hau’oli Shopping Mall, but it’s not accessible yet, as that Litten is guarding it.

Next is a big house. Here is where Lillie lives. There’s nothing here right now, but again — keep it in mind for future reference.

Further west, the path splits. Go south and you’ll see Aina’s Kitchen. Once again, we’ll come back here later.

Go south along the path, then east. Next house belongs to Mallow, but she’s not in. Next building is Poke Center — our first one in Alola, in fact.

East from the Poke Center is a park — grab a Poke Ball that is in there.

Then the path leads further south onto a pier. Lana’s house is here, and she’s outside. Talk to her to go to Hau’oli Outskirts.

—————–
HAU’OLI OUTSKIRTS
—————–
Wild Pokemon: *Salandit, Roggenrola, Charjabug, *Alolan Cubone, Emolga, Rufflet, Spinarak, Zubat, Pikipek, Bewear. Level 5-8.
Fishing (Old Rod): Psyduck and Slowpoke.
Fishing (Good Rod): Corsola, Sharpedo, and Pelipper.
Fishing (Super Rod): Psyduck, Slowpoke, Corsola, Sharpedo, and Pelipper.

If you want to catch Salandit, catch a female one — those are the only ones that can evolve. Cubones here look the same as normal ones, but they will evolve into Alolan Marowaks which are Fire/Ghost instead of Ground.

Hau’oli Outskirts is a really big place. It’s not too annoying since you can mostly just avoid the tall grass.

From the start, go NE and enter the gap between the trees. Navigate the path to NE. Eventually you’ll be able to go west through another gap. Fight a trainer.
Pokemon Breeder Ikue
Pichu LV 7
Pikachu LV 7

NW from her is a Super Potion and a bit west from that is a Great Ball.

Return to the trainer and go SW. There will be another trainer.
Gentleman Jeremy
Alolan Diglett LV 9

Then go west and north to a third trainer.
Lass Malia
Happiny LV 9

Go north to an area that is walled off by the trees. There’s another trainer here.
Gentleman Stanley
Makuhita LV 9

The NE corner of the area has a Full Heal.

Exit the area and go west and north, hugging the trees. When you get to the northern shore, continue east, then south.

You will see another gap to the south, but first go east and grab a Big Mushroom from the NE part of the island.

Now enter the gap. There is a trainer, and then a healer.
Gentleman Braiden
Umbreon LV 8
Pikipek LV 8

Continue south to the center of the island. In the NW corner is a Gift Popplio, grab it. Then check the boulder in the lake to fight a Gyarados LV 12.

After you beat the Gyarados, retrace your steps back to Lana. Talk to her — she will heal you, but then you’ll have to fight her.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Lana
Lapras LV 10
Popplio LV 10

After you beat her, you can go back to Hau’oli City. If you need to come back to Hau’oli Outskirts for any reason, the Lapras in Hau’oli City will now take you there and back.

Another day is done, go to bed.

*******************************************
* DAY 3 — THE MALL, SOPHOCLES, AND HOBBES *
*******************************************

The next day you will be told to meet Sophocles in the mall. Go to the Shopping Mall in the Hau’oli City, which is now open. Surprise! Another Team Rocket battle.
ICONIC BATTLE
TR’s Jessie & James
Mimikyu LV 13
Wobbuffet LV 49

After the battle, you can shop with various vendors, who offer some basic PokeMart wares, as well as evolution stones, vitamins, and X-items. Nothing you haven’t seen before.

Talk to Sophocles in the back and you will go to Hau’oli Tunnel. Immediately check the tile south of you; it contains a hidden Revive. Go north and beat three trainers.
Super Nerd Gerald
Morelull LV 12

Super Nerd Donald
Brionne LV 11
Alolan Meowth LV 11

Super Nerd Issac
Riolu LV 12

Grab another Revive and face a fourth trainer.
Super Nerd Henry
Grubbin LV 11
Trumbeak LV 11

Finally meet back with Sophocles himself who took time from his day job of writing Greek tragedies to heal you and fight you.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Sophocles
Togedemaru LV 13

Talk to him afterwards to get out of the tunnel; you cannot get back once you leave, but since you can miss at most 2 Revives here, it’s not a big deal.

For the next part, go to school. You’ll see Lillie take a Pokemon egg. Go to her home (the big mansion in Hau’oli City). Talk to the guy there (Hobbes) and fight him.
MINOR ICONIC
Gentleman Hobbes
Oricorio LV 14

Then go to Kukui’s house and sleep.

******************************
* DAY 4 — IKI TOWN AND HALA *
******************************

When you wake up, Kukui tells you that the bridge in the north of Route 1 is now open. Go west and north from the school to find it.

After passing the bridge, go east and grab the Eviolite. Then go into the trees to reach Route 3.

——-
ROUTE 3
——-
Wild Pokemon: *Alolan Diglett, *Alolan Rattata, *Cutiefly, *Mudbray, *Alolan Meowth, Ribombee, *Passimian, Alolan Raticate. Level 10-14.

There is a TM129 (Brutal Swing) in the NE corner of the plains where you start.

The western exit is inaccesible right now. Go north and up the stairs instead. Fight the trainer at the top.
MINOR ICONIC
Gentleman Laki
Smeargle LV 15

Go east from there, then north for a trainer battle and a Heal Ball.
Picknicker Tatiana
Petilil LV 15

Go back south, then west and north along the main path and fight another trainer.
Camper Joshua
Growlithe LV 15

The path splits here. Go north and west. There’s a corner below a plateau that hides a Stardust. Then you’ll meet a guy who will give you a Soothe Bell, with a visible sharp beak next to him. Continue west for another trainer.
Camper Ian
Psyduck LV 15

Go south and then head back north up the stairs to find the final trainer along with two items: A Red Card and a Nest Ball.
Hiker Makana
Rockruff LV 14
Slowpoke LV 14

Continue west to Iki Town.

——–
IKI TOWN
——–

Go down the stairs and into the town proper. To your west are two houses, but there is nothing interesting there. The guy standing by the east house is a Move Tutor — he teaches Drain Punch.

Continue north and up the stairs. Talk to the woman for a Stardust.

Enter the house here and talk to Hala. He will send you to Route 2.

Talking to Hala unlocks Alola teleport system. Teleport to Hau’oli City and leave through the NW exit to Route 2.

——-
ROUTE 2
——-
Wild Pokemon: Alolan Rattata, *Wimpod, *Alolan Pichu, Butterfree, Charjabug, Tauros, Miltank, Murkrow, Paras, Stoutland. Level 9-12.
Fishing (Old Rod): *Mareanie and Corsola.
Fishing (Good Rod): Chinchou, *Dhelmise, and Bruxish.
Fishing (Super Rod): *Mareanie, Corsola, Chinchou, *Dhelmise, and Bruxish.

Alolan Pichu and Pikachu work the same as their Kanto counterparts; only Raichu you get by evolving Pikachu is different (Electric/Psychic).

Technically, we could have come here before, but apart from getting some Pokemon a bit earlier, there was not much of a point.

From the start, go north and fight a trainer.
Pokemon Ranger Kaleb
Spearow LV 16

After that, Route 2 becomes much more open.

Go north along the path and turn east into the corridor between two rows of trees. There’s a Super Potion in the grass here. Continue east. There will be a small nook to the north; search the NW tile of this nook to find a Star Piece. Continue east and grab the visible item, TM125 (Power Gem) and fight another trainer.
Beauty Ashley
Cottonee LV 16

You’ll come to a cave entrance; this is Verdant Cavern and our next destination (if you come here without talking to Hala in Iki Town, the path will be blocked). But let’s clear the rest of this Route before going in.

Go north and east around the cliff. Grab a Stardust there. Go north and west and fight a trainer.
Pokemon Ranger Jay
Butterfree LV 16

West from here is a big grass patch with a Nest Ball and another trainer inside.
Lass Isabella
Spearow LV 15
Cutiefly LV 15

Continue west and north. In the very NW corner of the Route is the last trainer, guarding another Nest Ball.
Beauty Krystal
Gastly LV 15
Misdreavus LV 15

That’s all that is here; go back to the cave and enter.

————–
VERDANT CAVERN
————–
Wild Pokemon: *Yungoos, Alolan Rattata, Gumshoos, Alolan Raticate. Level 12-16.

Go to the end of the cave and fight the Totem Gumshoos.
ICONIC BATTLE
Totem Gumshoos (2v3)
Gumshoos LV 20
Yungoos LV 15
Gumshoos LV 15

After beating Gumshoos, talk to it to get Normalium-Z for winning. Note that you HAVE to talk to it in order to unlock the next part of the quest. Go back outside. Kukui will be waiting for you. He’ll tell you about the Z-Crystals, which allow one superpowered move per battle, the move type is dependent on the crystal that the pokemon has equipped.

Return to Iki Town.

Hala will now be in the northern part of the town. Fight him.
ICONIC BATTLE
ISLAND KAHUNA HALA (2v2)
Crabrawler LV 19
Hariyama LV 21

After you win, he’s about to give you a reward, when Tapu Koko shows up to give you an Electrium-Z.

Go to Kukui’s House and talk to the ICONIC Rockruff there. It will join you.

Rockruff evolves into Lycanroc and it has three possible forms to evolve into. If you want to obtain all three, you need to either breed this Rockruff or to buy it from Alolan Game Corner on Royal Avenue.

Two of the forms evolve by happiness (one during day, one during night), while the third one is obtained by simply raising Rockruff to level 25.

As an aside, the best Day Care right now is in Sinnoh. That’s because it has the best path: Sinnoh stop of the inter-regional teleport is in a town with Poke Center, and therefore a regional teleport that can get you right to Solaceon Town where the Day Care is. Kalos has the same feature, but the Day Care is a bit farther from a Poke Center.

But you might want to wait a bit — the next Day Care has even better placement.

Go to bed — another day done!

*******************************************
* DAY 5 – LILLIE, KIAWE, AND PANIOLA RANCH *
*******************************************

The next day, Kukui tells you to go to Lillie’s house in Hau’oli Town. Do so. You can now fight Lillie.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Lillie
Alolan Vulpix LV 19 (Snowy)

Afterwards, go back to Route 1. East from the school is Kiawe with a Charizard. Talk to the Charizard and go to Akala Island.

————
PANIOLA TOWN
————
Fishing (Old Rod): Wishiwashi and Alomomola.
Fishing (Good Rod): Pelipper and Gyarados.
Fishing (Super Rod): Pelipper, Gyarados, Wishiwashi, and Alomomola.

First of all, there are two flowers to your SW. The one further from you hosts a hidden Revive.

North of you are two houses. The eastern one has a guy who will give you a Quick Ball.

A guy south from the house will give you a Moomoo Milk.

The SW part of the town has a small lake. It’s mostly rectangular, but there are some protruding water tiles on top and bottom. Search the tile east from the protruding tiles on the south edge for a Fresh Water.

Finally, there’s a Move Relearner in the Poke Center.

Go north to Paniola Ranch.

————-
PANIOLA RANCH
————-
Wild Pokemon: Mudbray, Miltank, Tauros, Herdier, Lillipup, *Alolan Geodude. Level 15-18.
Fishing (Old Rod): Wishiwashi and Alomomola.
Fishing (Good Rod): Pelipper and Gyarados.
Fishing (Super Rod): Pelipper, Gyarados, Wishiwashi, and Alomomola.

Go north and fight the first trainer.
MINOR ICONIC
Lady Anna
Magnezone LV 19

Follow the path to the end. There are two ways to continue: north and south. Go north first.

This is a pasture with some Miltank and Tauros grazing around. There are four items on the ground; from east to west they are an Oval Stone, an Amulet Coin, a Moomoo Milk, and a Mystic Water.

Return to the path and go south (after fighting a trainer who guards the way).
MINOR ICONIC
Lady Nina
Alolan Raichu LV 19

This part is a fairly big area with lots of grass. First of all, go to the SW grass patch and stand on the flower at the northern edge of the grass. From this flower, go two tiles south and check the western tile for a Fresh Water.

Go to the SW corner of this patch and go south along the fence, back to Paniola Town. Grab the Scope Lens at the end of the path.

After that, return to Paniola Ranch and go east. The next item is a visible Ether. After that, there is another hidden item: this big grass patch has a rectangular “dent” in its northern edge; stand in the SE corner of this dent and check the tile to your east for a Super Repel.

A final hidden item in this area is a Soda Pop. To find it, go to the NE corner (with a fenced Tauros) and search the second tile from the left in the northern row.

We’re now done with this part, so go north past the next two trainers, in an optional double battle.
Tamer Gerald
Sableye LV 19
Carbink LV 18

Pokemon Breeder Amanda
Lillipup LV 18
Growlithe LV 18

The house here is where Kiawe lives, and it is also the Alolan branch of the Day Care.

This is the end of the way for now, as the path ahead is blocked by a herd of Miltank. So talk to Kiawe and fight him.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Kiawe
Charizard LV 20
Turtonator LV 21

Beating Kiawe has several consequences: Paniola Town will be added to Alola teleport network and his Charizard can now transport you at will between Route 1 and Paniola Ranch. That makes Alolan Day Care pretty convenient, even more than the Sinnoh one!

Go to Kukui’s house and sleep to start the next quest.

***************************************
* DAY 6 — MALLOW AND MELEMELE MEADOW *
***************************************

The next day, talk to Kukui to learn that you are supposed to go to Route 3 and meet Mallow there. Go there and meet her. You can now go west into the trees to reach Melemele Meadow.

—————
MELEMELE MEADOW
—————
Wild Pokemon: *Oricorio, Butterfree, Pikipek, Ledyba, Bewear, Murkrow. Level 17-20.

Another Team Rocket battle to start this.
ICONIC BATTLE
TR’s Jessie & James
Mimikyu LV 20
Wobbuffet LV 50
Mareanie LV 20

Afterwards, grab the Yellow Nectar. Note that wild Pokemon can appear anywhere in the meadow.

Oricorio, who is very common here, has multiple forms. For now, you have access to two: its basic form is Fire/Flying, but if you have it hold the Yellow Nectar, it will transform into Electric/Flying form. It has two more forms, but you don’t have the necessary items right now.

Go out, talk to Mallow and battle her.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Mallow
Steenee LV 22

You can go to Kukui’s House to unlock the next quest. But when you get there, Kukui will remind you of the ICONIC Litten who used to block your way to some destinations will be close to Lillie’s house in Hau’oli City. Go talk to it and it will join you.

Now head back to the lab and go to bed, and it’s quest time!

********************
* DAY 7 — GLADION *
********************

The next day, go to Lillie’s house in Hau’oli City. Her brother Gladion is there now, so fight him, as one is prone to do with people they see for the first time. No? It’s just me? Moving on…
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Gladion
Lycanroc-Night LV 20

Actually, the Gladion fight is the only thing to do today — go back to Kukui’s House and sleep. And if you didn’t get out of your way to get the Litten, it’s right there near the mansion.

*****************************
* DAY 8 — AKALA AND OLIVIA *
*****************************

The next day, go to the school. You’ll learn that there’s a field trip to Akala Island. That’s the island where Paniola Town is, by the way.

The Charizard won’t fly you to Paniola Ranch right now, so you have to take a ship. Go to Hau’oli City and walk all the way to the pier. There are two ships. You want to take the north one (well, it’s the only one you CAN take), and go to Paniola.

Go north towards Paniola Ranch and Kukui will stop you to tell you that you should take the trial on the island. So continue to Paniola Ranch.

At this point, the herd of Miltank that used to block your way by the Day Care has moo-ved. They still block your way south, but now you can at least go north to Route 5.

——-
ROUTE 5
——-
Wild Pokemon: Wimpod, Cutiefly, *Crabrawler, Alolan Exeggutor, Grubbin, Ribombee, Butterfree. Level 18-21.

Crabrawler has a location evolution, but you haven’t found the correct location yet. I’ll mention it when we get there.

This is another big and spacey Route, but it’s actually fairly constrained in terms of your paths. Let’s get to it.

From the start, go north fight a trainer to the west.
MINOR ICONIC
Gentleman Oluolu
Snorlax LV 22

After you beat him, he’ll give you a Snorlium-Z.

Continue north to the next trainer.
Hiker Gabriel
Makuhita LV 22

Then go into the grass to the east. There’s a Hyper Potion in this area.

Go back to the main path and follow it to the west. There’s another trainer, and then a healer.
Pokemon Breeder Yuka
Morelull LV 22
Ledyba LV 22

The path splits now. We can go north, south, or west. We’ll start by going north. First fight a trainer.
Youngster Corey
Paras LV 22
Spinarak LV 22
Slowpoke LV 22

Then grab a Poisonium-Z from the exact center of the next grass patch. A pair of double trainers is further to the east. These can be fought twice.
Twins Isa & Nico
Happiny LV 23
Igglybuff LV 23

But before you jump the ledge there, go south and west into a dead end with a Super Potion.

Jump the ledge. The nest area has another Revive in the grass patch. Jump the ledge to the south and then search the SW corner of this area to find a hidden Star Piece. Fight another trainer here and jump south to get back to the main path.
Youngster Caleb
Grubbin LV 22 x2

Go back to the crossroads, and this time, go south. Fight two trainers who guard the way in an optional double battle, then continue south.
Camper Justin
Vullaby LV 23

Picknicker Lauren
Rufflet LV 23

Go east to grab yet another Revive from the dead end, and then go west. Go into the trees to reach Brooklet Hill.

Fishing (Old Rod): Magikarp and Feebas.
Fishing (Good Rod): Wishiwashi and Alomomola.
Fishing (Super Rod): Magikarp, Feebas, Wishiwashi, and Alomomola.

Then agree to team up with her. Together, go north and check the boulder to fight the Totem Wishiwashi.
ICONIC BATTLE
Totem Pokemon Wishiwashi (Double Battle)
Wishiwashi LV 28
Alomomola LV 23

Exit the area, return to the crossroads on Road 5, and continue west to Route 8.

——-
Wild Pokemon: Alolan Geodude, Alolan Diglett, Lillipup, Garbodor, Herdier, Fearow, Yungoos. Level 21-24.
Fishing (Old Rod): Wishiwashi and Alomomola.
Fishing (Good Rod): Wimpod, Gyarados, and Wishiwashi.
Fishing (Super Rod): Wishiwashi, Alomomola, Wimpod, and Gyarados.

This is mostly just a scenic Route around a rock massif. First go west on a small peninsula and fight the trainer.
Picknicker Kiana
Eevee LV 24

After, talk to the next guy for a Water Stone.

Return to the main path. Grab a Dive Ball from the grass patch to the north, then continue west past another Trainer.
Lass Malie
Alolan Meowth LV 24

Continue west to the third trainer.
Bird Keeper Elleen
Wingull LV 24
Fearow LV 24

There are two hidden items here. One, a Max Repel, is in the NE corner of the area. The other one, an Iron, is on the small 1-tile outcrop into the sea west of the trainer.

Continue north. There are two trainers on this path, as well as a Thunderstone in a grass patch.
Youngster Miki
Bounsweet LV 23
Trumbeak LV 23

Youngster Aralan
Rockruff LV 24

The final part of this Route leads east. Once again, it has two trainers and an item in the grass (a Miracle Seed).
Lass Nicki
Miltank LV 24

Scientist Tyrone
Archen LV 24
Shieldon LV 24

Continue east to Route 7.

——-
ROUTE 7

Wild Pokemon: Alolan Geodude, Alolan Diglett, Lillipup, Garbodor, Herdier, Fearow, Yungoos. Level 21-24.
Fishing (Old Rod): Wishiwashi and Alomomola.
Fishing (Good Rod): Wimpod, Gyarados, and Wishiwashi.

All land and fishing encounters are the same as on Route 8.

Start by going east and fighting two trainers.
Swimmer Casey
Mareanie LV 26

Swimmer Dakota
Surskit LV 25
Dewpider LV 25

Be sure to grab the Buginium-Z in the Southern corner before continuing on. Further east the path splits. Go east. Fight a trainer and grab a Rare Candy in the grass.
Swimmer Tiare
Alomomola LV 25
Shellder LV 25
Corsola LV 25

Then fight the pair of double trainers, which can be fought twice.
Cool Couple Zero & Chloe
Zorua LV 25
Rockruff LV 25

Further east is the Wela Volcano Park. (If the path is blocked, it means you haven’t beaten Totem Wishiwashi yet.)

—————–
WELA VOLCANO PARK
—————–
Wild Pokemon: Alolan Marowak, Alolan Cubone, Magcargo, Magby, Salandit, Ponyta. Level 22-24.

Go north. The path splits here and each side is guarded by a trainer.
Cool Trainer Jim
Alolan Meowth LV 25
Kadabra LV 25

Hiker Colhoun
Roggenrola LV 25
Machop LV 25

Beat both of them and grab the items in the side paths (TM127 (Leech Seed) on the west side, a Charcoal on the east side). Then continue north and fight Kiawe.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Kiawe
Charizard LV 23
Alolan Marowak LV 25
Turtonator LV 25

Unfortunately, that is not the trial you need to beat. Huh. Go back down, west along Route 7 and south into the northern part of Route 5.

——-
ROUTE 5
——-

Go south, then east. There is a trainer and a Brightpowder in the eastern part of this area.
Cool Trainer Alexis
Goomy LV 25
Sylveon LV 25

Be careful to not fall down the ledge — you’d have to go around Routes 8 and 7 again to return and while it’s a safe path, it’s long and annoying.

Enter the forest once you get the Brightpowder. (If the path is blocked, then you haven’t beaten Kiawe on Wela Volcano yet.)

———–
LUSH JUNGLE
———–
Wild Pokemon: *Fomantis, Alolan Diglett, Castform, Lurantis, Parasect. Level 22-24.

This is a “cave” area so wild Pokemon can appear anywhere. There is a Grass Rock here, so Eevee can evolve into Leafeon when leveled up here.

Once you enter, you will have to fight Mallow.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Mallow
Steenee LV 27

Then continue north and fight Totem Lurantis.
ICONIC BATTLE
Totem Pokemon Lurantis (2v2)
Lurantis LV 30
Castform LV 25

You will get Grassium-Z for beating it.

Now that you have beaten Totem Lurantis, two things happen. First of all, Kiawe is no longer at the Wela Volcano. That means you can get to his Charizard. Charizard is like an alternate teleport system in Alola; right now it connects three places: Route 1, Paniola Ranch, and Wela Volcano. You need to get to Paniola Ranch — better way is to go on foot, as you can stop by the healer on Route 5.

The second thing that happens is that the herd of Miltank at Paniola Ranch moves again, letting you go south.

————-
PANIOLA RANCH
————-

The new section is pretty short, consisting just of trainers — five of them!
Fisherman Vernon
Starmie LV 26
Gyarados LV 25

ICONIC BATTLE
Youngste Horacio (Sophocles’s Rival)
Charjabug LV 27 (Shiny)

Cubone LV 26
Drowzee LV 25

MINOR ICONIC
Beauty Ida
Brionne LV 27

Continue south to Ruins of Life.

————-
RUINS OF LIFE
————-

To your east is a Legendary, Tapu Lele. It’s only LV 25, so a relatively easy catch.

Once you’ve caught it, the only thing left to do here is to fight Olivia.
ICONIC BATTLE
ISLAND KAHUNA OLIVIA (Double Battle) (2v2)
Lycanroc LV 26
Probopass LV 26

Beat her to receive the Rockium-Z.

This concludes the Akala quest. Go to Kukui’s House and sleep.

**********************
* DAY 9 — SOPHOCLES *
**********************

The next day, Kukui sends you to Sophocles’s house — remember? It’s the second house in Hau’oli City when you go from Route 1. Fight him.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Sophocles
Togedemaru LV 26
Chargabug LV 26

And… that’s it? Yeah, it’s another day done, go to Kukui’s House, sleep, etc.

***************************
* DAY 10 — BACK IN KANTO *
***************************

So, the next day, Kukui’s gone. Go to school. You’ll learn that you’re going to Pallet Town to see Kantoian forms. Unfortunately, the convenient inter-regional teleport doesn’t work, so you’ll have to take the blimp. Go to Viridian City and walk home.

———–
PALLET TOWN
———–

Go to Oak’s Laboratory where you are welcomed by Team Rocket. Isn’t it nice how those guys try?
ICONIC BATTLE
TR’s Jessie & James
Mimikyu LV 27
Wobbuffet LV 51
Mareanie LV 27

So, after the inevitable blasting, go through the lab and exit through the back into the corral.

In the corral, you can talk to Oak, Samson, Kukui, and your classmates, but the main thing to do here is to fight Misty and Brock.
ICONIC BATTLE
Gym Leader Misty
Gyarados LV 55 (Mega)

ICONIC BATTLE
Breeder Brock
Steelix LV 55 (Mega)

(Don’t forget that Oak’s Lab has a healing machine and a PC!) Once you beat both of them, you will automatically return to Kukui’s House in Alola. Go to bed.

*******************
* DAY 11 — NEBBY *
*******************

The next day, Kukui has no task for you, but Rotom Dex suggests you should go to Melemele Forest.

In the forest, go south. Close to the first trainer is a Pokemon — it’s tiny, so you might have problem seeing it. Talk to it and it will start following you.

Now go to Lillie’s house in Hau’oli City and fight her.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Lillie
Alolan Vulpix (Snowy) LV 27

She suggests taking it to Kukui, so head back to the lab. He doesn’t know what to do, so suggests that you sleep on it.

*****************************
* DAY 12 — AETHER PARADISE *
*****************************

The next day, you’re told to go to school. This time, we’re going to Aether Paradise!

Go to Hau’oli City and to the sailor who sails to Paniola City. He now has Aether Paradise as another destination.

—————
AETHER PARADISE
—————
Wild Pokemon: Bounsweet, *Stufful, Ditto, Petilil, *Comfey, *Alolan Exeggcute, Sandygast, Jigglypuff, Sandile. Level 23-28.
Fishing (Old Rod): Shellos and Qwilfish.
Fishing (Good Rod): Swanna, Goldeen, and Wishiwashi.
Fishing (Super Rod): Shellos, Qwilfish, Swanna, Goldeen, and Wishiwashi.

Stufful is the first form of Bewear who appeared in a few areas. And Alolan Exeggcute looks the same as the regular one but can be evolved into Alolan Exeggutor — you have seen that one as well. The only completely new Pokemon here is Comfey.

From where you start, you can go west or east and then south to the grass patches. East patch has an item at the end of it. the eastern path has a Groundium-Z. The western path has TM130 (Shore Up).

Now lets head into the building. Or you can go north and enter the big building…

From the start, you will meet the researcher Faba. Once you’re done, you have a PC on your left. You can’t go east, so go north and then east to a small office with a Rare Candy. It was probably someone’s lunch and you just pilfered it. I hope you’re happy.

The guy at the north end of the big room is a healer.

Go west and fight a trainer.
Scientist Teddy
Alolan Dugtrio LV 28
Sliggoo LV 28

The path leads you around, past two more trainers.
Scientist Jari

Trumbeak LV 28

Be sure to pick up the Max Revive in the SW Corner. Continue east and fight another trainer.

Continue east. The path goes further east, but go south first. Fight a trainer that guards the entrance to another office with a Nugget.

Parasect LV 28
Drifblim LV 28
Vibrava LV 28

Go back to the main path and continue east past two more trainers in a double battle.
Scientists Willington & Billington
Electabuzz LV 29
Magmar LV 29

Grab a Dubious Disc there (you should already have some from Slateport MARKET). Two researchers at the counter sell all types of fossils including two new ones: Jaw Fossil and Sail Fossil.

Continue along the path and Faba will stop you when you go past him. You will automatically go back to Kukui’s House.

Go back to Aether Paradise — we’re not done here yet. Now directy east from the entrance is another room, which has a free Type: Null at LV 30. Grab it. Continue east along the southern wall to grab a Master Ball!

Now you can go back to Kukui’s House and sleep.

****************************
* DAY 13 — TEN CARAT HILL *
****************************

The next day, Kukui will tell you that he has a funny lesson plan. Then Cosmog teleports you away.

Welp.

Welcome to Ten Carat Hill!

————–
TEN CARAT HILL
————–
Wild Pokemon: Pinsir, Magmar, Day Lycanroc, Night Lycanroc, Alolan Raticate, Spinda, Sableye, Pangoro, Machop. Level 24-29.

Wild Pokemon encounters can occur anywhere here.

Follow the path east, south, and West, facing three trainers and grabbing the Ether along the way.
Youngster Honus

Youngster Ikaika
Pikipek LV 29
Yungoos LV 29

After the third trainer, continue west to grab an Elixir, then return to the trainer and go south and east.

Fight the next trainer and continue east.
Lass Sheri

Pikachu LV 29

You’ll end up on a meadow. Grab the Fightinium-Z at the east side and talk to Gladion to fight him.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Gladion
Type: Null (Silvally) LV 31

Note that although his pokemon is Named Silvally, it is a Type: Null.

He will send you back to Route 1 afterwards. From this point on, Charizard will have Ten Carat Hill as a new destination.

Go back to Kukui’s House and sleep.

*************************************************
* DAY 14 — FABA, NIHILEGO, AND VAST PONI CANYON *
*************************************************

The next day, you are supposed to go to Aether Paradise and visit Faba. Do so.

Aaaand Faba goes all villainy and steals Nebby. Go to the building and you will be thrown into a battle with Nihilego LV 35. Catch it.

Nothing more to do here, go to Kukui’s House. No sleeping, though — Kukui will tell you that you’re going to Poni island. Return back to the sailor in Hau’oli City: he now has a new destination, Vast Poni Canyon!

—————-
VAST PONI CANYON
—————-
Wild Pokemon: *Jangmo-o, Hakamo-o, Mienfoo, Carbink, Kommo-o, Machoke, Golbat, Night Lycanroc, Day Lycanroc, Machop. Level 24-29.

This is a location with strong magnetic fields, and as such it allows evolution of Magneton, Nosepass, and Charjabug.

Once again, random encounters can occur everywhere here. Start by going east and north and fight a trainer.
Cool Trainer Lynn
Staryu LV 29
Shiinotic LV 29
Fletchinder LV 29

Conitnue west. There will be another trainer and a Dragonium-Z in the dead end.

Magneton LV 29

Arcanine LV 29

Then go back and enter the eastern branch. It has Protein and a pair of double trainers.
Cool Couple Kent & Aimee
Alolan Sandslash LV 30
Alolan Ninetales LV 30

Go east, north, and west around the rock formation to fight another trainer, making sure to grab the TM 126 (Liquidation).

Sneasel LV 29

The last trainer is west from you and there’s a Revive close to him.
Cool Trainer Eric
Granbull LV 29
Alolan Golem LV 29
Cloyster LV 29

That’s all on the outside, enter the cave! Inside, go straight north, but make sure to grab the Pikashunium-Z. Talk to Solgaleo, who will give you a Solganium-Z. It then automatically heals you (although you won’t get a message about it) and agree to go to Ultra Deep Space. Once there, go north and fight Lusamine.
ICONIC BATTLE
Aether President Lusamine
Clefable LV 33
Milotic LV 33
Absol LV 33
Salazzle LV 33
Lilligant LV 33
Mismagius LV 33

After you win, you will get back to Altar of the Sunne.

Once you get back, you will automatically go back to Kukui’s House. Which is a bit of a bummer, since you want to go back to the Vast Poni Canyon, all the way to the cave and talk to Solgaleo in order to obtain it.
Gift Solgaleo LV 30

And then all the way back to Kukui’s House to sleep.

****************************
* DAY 15 — MOUNT LANAKILA *
****************************

The next day, follow Rotom Dex’s suggestion and go to school. Kukui will announce a new trip. Go to the sailor you’ve been using and he will now be able to transport you to Mount Lanakila.

————–
MOUNT LANAKILA
————–
Weather forecast: Blizzard

Wild Pokemon: *Alolan Vulpix, Sneasel, *Alolan Sandshrew, Crabominable, Snorunt. Level 25-30.

This is a place with Glacial Rock, so Eevee can evolve here into Glaceon. In addition, this is the only place where Crabrawler can evolve into Crabominable.

Directly West from where you started is a Move Tutor for Iron Head.

Start by going west. and south to fight a trainer.
Crush Girl Kailee
Shiinotic LV 30
Passimian LV 30

ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Lillie
Alolan Vulpix (Snowy) LV 32

Now you can return north to the sailor and go home. Go to Kukui’s House and sleep.

Note that when you pass back through Hau’oli City, there is a pokeball containing a LV 30 Marshadow next to the Pokemon Center. Be sure to grab it.

**********************
* DAY 16 — BUZZWOLE *
**********************

The next day, go to school. Lusamine announces that you can now battle Ultra Beasts that wander around Alola. Go to the northeast corner of the classroom. There will be a new NPC who sells you Beast Balls; these special Poke Balls are great for catching Ultra Beasts, but don’t really work that well on anything else. They cost just 300, so you can just buy as many as you want. By this time you are most likely at the money cap which means you are single-handedly supporting the whole Pokemon world economy.

Now go to Melemele Meadow (over the bridge to Route 3, and then west into the trees). Fight Buzzwole which appears there and catch it. Try your new Beast Balls.
Buzzwole LV 37

Once you do that, go to Kukui’s House and sleep.

**************************
* DAY 17 — ROYAL AVENUE *
**************************

The next day, take the Charizard to Paniola Ranch. The herd of Miltank is now gone, so you can go east from the ranch and enter Royal Avenue!

————
ROYAL AVENUE
————

Royal Avenue is basically a small town. There is a new Move Tutor (for Gunk Shot) in the Poke Center.

Outside, you can collect five items, two hidden and three visible:

1) Rare Candy — The northern edge of Royal Avenue is formed by trees and bushes. A Rare Candy is hidden in the third bush from the left.
2) Rare Candy — Another one is hidden in the third bush from the right.
3) HP Up — on the ground near the second Rare Candy.
4) Pink Nectar — near the fountain in the center of Royal Avenue. Pink Nectar can be equipped on Oricorio to change it into its Psychic/Flying form.
5) TM132 (Revenge) — in the SE corner in the puddle.

Go north from the Ultra Ball and enter the house. The man inside will give you a Power Belt.

East of the house is a guy who will give you the Incinium-Z. The hiker by the fountain will give you a Primarium-Z. The fisherman north of the Pokemon Center will give you a Decidium-Z.

There is Game Corner in the eastern part of the Avenue. The Pokemon offered there are:
Wimpod – 180 coins
Rockruff – 500 coins
Jangmo-o – 2800 coins
*Turtonator – 5500 coins
*Komala – 9999 coins

Note that Turtonator and Komala are not available anywhere else.

Now enter the big building to the north. Talk to the guy in the middle and you get a choice of pairing with either Kiawe or Sophocles for the next battle. Choose whoever — the one you don’t choose will be the partner of your opponent. Beat the Masked Royal and that’s another day done.
ICONIC BATTLE
Masked Royal & Pokemon Trainer Kiawe / Sophocles
Incineroar LV 33
Alolan Marowak LV 33 / Chargabug LV 33

The Alola teleport system is also updated, adding Royal Avenue. Head back towards the school for a good night’s sleep…except that Team Skull has taken over the place. Two grunts guard the road to the school.
Team Skull Sipp
Alolan Rattata LV 33
Alolan Raticate LV 33
Yungoos LV 33
Spinarak LV 33

Team Skull Hipp
Houndour LV 33
Ekans LV 33
Drowzee LV 33

MINOR ICONIC
Team Skull Okazaki (No pokemon in anime)
Golbat LV 33

The ‘leaders’ of this strike force are next to the school entrance, guarding Illima.
ICONIC BATTLE
Team Skull Tupp, Rapp, & Zipp
Salandit LV 33
Garbodor LV 33
Zubat LV 33
Yungoos LV 30

Illima will then give you an Eevium-Z, and tells you about the Alola Pokemon League that’s being set up. Exciting prospect. For now though, let’s head to sleep.

*********************
* DAY 18 — POIPOLE *
*********************

The nest day, Kukui will tell you that an Ultra Beast appeared on the island and Rotom Dex reveals that it’s inside the school! So, let’s go there. Rotom Dex gives you a hint once you enter – the Ultra Beast is in the plants on the right side of the school.

Note that there’s now a trainer next to the PC machine.
MINOR ICONIC
Youngster Hiroki
Mudbray LV 20

There’s a small room you can reach by going east from the classroom, then south — there was no reason coming here before. Once you enter the room, you will see an ICONIC Poipole on the right. It’s another gift pokemon, so grab it. It even comes in a Beast Ball.
ICONIC POKEMON
Poipole LV 35

Poipole, unlike the rest of the Ultra Beasts, is able to evolve. To evolve it, you must teach it Dragon Pulse, but it actually doesn’t learn it by leveling up. Dragon Pulse is Lv. 1 move, so you need to take Poipole to one of the many Move Relearners and get it there. For those people who want to have a complete dex listing in their PC’s with all possible powkemon, however, do NOT evolve Poipole, as you will recieve a Gift Naganadel towards the end of the Alola Region.

As a reminder, in case you don’t want to go searching through this guide for them, there is a Move Relearner in Blackthorn City in Johto. I chose it because it is, in my opinion, the easiest to find.

Anyways, that’s today’s quest done. Go back to Kukui’s House and sleep.

************************************************
* DAY 19 — CELESTEELA, KIAWE, LANA, AND MALLOW *
************************************************

The next day, Rotom Dex informs you about another Ultra Beast, sighted at Route 3. So — go there. From the entrance, go north, up the big set of stairs to the plateau. There is a new trainer at the base waiting to challenge you.
MINOR ICONIC
Black Belt Ikari
Mienshao LV 33

Continue north and west. Sophocles wants the Ultra Beast for himself and you have to fight him.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Sophocles
Togedemaru LV 36
Chargabug LV 36

Beat him, then fight and catch Celesteela!
Celesteela LV 34

Rotom Dex suggests to visit Kiawe on the farm, so go back to Route 1 and take Charizard to Paniola Ranch. Kiawe is right there, so fight him.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Kiawe
Charizard LV 34
Alolan Marowak LV 36
Turtonator LV 36

After you beat Kiawe, Rotom Dex sends you to Route 1 where Lana is. She is SW from Kukui’s house, by the sea. Fight her.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Lana
Popplio LV 37

Next, Rotom Dex sends you to Aina’s Kitchen in Hau’oli City (it’s the fancy house on the western side of the city), where you will fight Mallow.
Pokemon Trainer Mallow
Steenee LV 37

After that, go to Kukui’s House and sleep.

************************************
* DAY 20 — ULA’ULA ISLAND AND NANU *
************************************

The next day, Kukui tells you that you will be going to Ula’ula Island today. Go to Hau’oli City and this time, talk to the BOTTOM sailor to sail for Tapu Village!

First of all, enter the house NE from you and talk to Nanu.
ICONIC BATTLE
ISLAND KAHUNA NANU (1v1)
Krookodile LV 33

He will fight you. This will also update the Alolan teleport system, adding Tapu Village Poke Center. Then, go out and talk to the lady east from the house to obtain a Razor Claw.

There are three paths out of the village, but the NW one is blocked. Go through the NE path first to Haina Desert.

————
HAINA DESERT
————
Weather forecast: Sandstorm

Wild Pokemon: Trapinch, Sandile, Mudsdale, Alolan Dugtrio, Alolan Diglett. Level 27-32.

Wild Pokemon encounters can happen anywhere in the desert.

As soon as you enter, you will speak to Acerola. she tells you to head through the desert to the Ruins of Abundance, where Tapu Bulu is at.

Towards the end of the hall is a vendor who will sell you Heart Scales for 9000 apiece. That’s all in the ship, so head back outside.

Note that both Cruise ships can be entered, but the other ship is full of nothing but NPC’s, so nothing of note.

Now head west into the Poni Wilds.

Before you do so, there are several trainers and items that we can grab here.

Go back to the path and continue east until you hit the woods. In the grass patch south of you is a Shiny Stone.

North of the grass patch are a pair of guards blocking the entrance to Tapu Fini’s home, so we’ll leave it alone for now.

Ignore the northern path for now and head back to Seafolk Village. Lillie is waiting for you in the central plaza. Beat her.

After beating him, he sends you to ask Lana about the Kahuna. Lana is at the Beach in the Poni Wilds, so return there.

But the real reason you’re here is to fight Lana who appears next to the northern big rock.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Lana
Brionne LV 39
Eevee LV 38 (Sandy)

She, too, does not know where the Island Kahuna is, but recommends that you should fight Tapu Fini now. Before you leave, check two tiles right and three tiles north from here to find a hidden Rare Candy — you can use it to evolve Meltan into Melmetal.

The two guards at the western end of the Ancient Poni Path are now gone, allowing you to face Tapu Fini. Before you can face it though, you must fight Mallow, who is standing guard outside the entrance.

Now in the semi-finals. Getting down to the wire, here…
ICONIC LEAGUE BATTLE
Skull Boss Guzma (2v2)
Scizor LV 47
Golisopod LV 48

Now it’s the finals. Head to the next stadium on your right.
ICONIC LEAGUE BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Gladion (3v3)
Silvally LV 49
Zoroark LV 48
Lycanro-Night LV 48

After you beat him, congrats, you’ve won the league! You finally get to see the famous Hall of Fame cutscene. After this, head back outside. There’s a bit of a situation with some rowdy Guzzlord. Head around back to help the Maksed Royal with his Guzzlord. There’s also a free Nagendal to the left of them, in case you needed an extra one. Even though ours never had to leave us, which now gives us two Nagendal if we made sure to evolve our Poipole. Or, id we didn’t, it now allows us to fill both slots in the PC for a complete visual dex.

You might want to consider catching this Guzzlord as well. Not only is it LV 50, it’s also Shiny.

Once you beat/catch it, the Masked Royal will lose his mask, revealing…Professor Kukui. Who knew, eh? He now challenges you to a full 6v6 exhibition match. Let’s head back inside for the grand finale.

It’s on the same stage as the Finals were.
MAJOR ICONIC LEAGUE BATTLE
Professor Kukui
Incineroar LV 55
Braviary LV 51
Empoleon LV 51
Tapu Koko LV 53
Lucario LV 51
Venusaur LV 51

Once you beat him, he’ll give you the Tapunium-Z. You’ll be taken back to the main lobby, where everyone is gathered in a suffocating mass to congratulate you. Talk to Kukui again, and you’ll be sent back to his lab for a good night’s rest.

******************************
DAY 29: AFTER THE ALOLA LEAGUE
******************************

Once you wake up, Rotom Dex tells you to head to the school again. Kukui tells the class that their vacation is starting and the school will be on break. The class announces their intentions to split up and do different things.

As a going-away present, however, Kiawe wants to battle you one last time…I think we can oblige him.
ICONIC BATTLE
Pokemon Trainer Kiawe (1v1)
Charizard LV 50

After you beat him, Rotom Dex announces that it’s leaving as well to work with the Aether Foundation. Oh well. I guess that’s one less thing following us around.

Once you’ve said your goodbyes, head back outside, back to Kanto, and talk to Oak again. He’ll congadulate you on becoming Champion and encourage you to reach for even greater heights…it’s a wide world out there, after all!!!

**********************
* THE END… FOR NOW *

Please note that-contrary to the rest of this walkthrough-the locations for these battles will NOT be given. These are easter eggs for you to find on your own. It took us weeks before we finally found it, and all we can say is that it can be very frustrating.

Just remember that if you get too mad or frustrated, it almost always helps to sleep on it and come back later. 🙂
