There are a number of trainer battles here. The Lass facing left before the bridge isn’t up for one, but the Youngster nearby is. Move up to him and commence the battle.

If a Pokemon trainer spots you, theres no running away. Let the battle commence!

Trainer Battle: Youngster

Pokemon Level Type
Patrat 4 Normal

Once you’re done, continue on past the bridge until you reach a Lass facing west. She’s looking for a battle too.

Trainer Battle: Lass

Pokemon Level Type
Purrloin 4 Dark

Once she’s defeated, follow the path north into the grass. Collect the Parlyz Heal here and battle the next Youngster. If you want to avoid the battle, you can move past him on his left side. It’s recommended that you partake in the battle for experience however. It’s quite easy so there shouldn’t be any problems.

Trainer Battle: Youngster

Pokemon Level Type
Patrat 4 Normal

Once you’ve defeated Petey, continue north until you’re out of the grass. There is a Hiker to your right. He isn’t willing to fight at the moment, but he’s refusing to let you past him. Continue left instead. Before the bridge, you’ll see a short path leading north with a few rocks blocking the way early on.

The left of the bottom two rocks contains a Poke Ball. If you interact with it by pressing ‘A’ when you face it, you’ll collect the Poke Ball . Once you have it, continue west over the bridge.

Youll find handy items littered all across Unova, both in plain sight (left) and out of sight (right).

If it’s currently Autumn, there will be leaves covering the ditch to your south, allowing you to move across it and grab the Poke Ball. If it’s not currently Autumn, feel free to set it to an Autumn month (March, July or November) on your DS or 3DS then exit and re-enter the area to allow the game to switch to Autumn.

Come back here and move across the leaves and grab the Poke Ball . Now you can head along the new path opened up by the leaves to the north-west of the patch you’re in at the moment. Follow this path west, then south until you reach the end.

At the last tile before the end is a hidden Potion . Attempt to interact with the tile to receive it. Now backtrack until you’re back on the main path. From there, you can head north along the path to Floccesy Ranch. Before you leave the area, it’s recommended that you catch a Sunkern, Sewaddle and Pidove if you can.

This will bring your party count up to six, meaning that you will then have a full party. Training them up to around Level 4 or 5 each would also be a good idea as you have a decently difficult Rival Battle up ahead. The wild Pokemon in Floccesy Ranch are also of a noticeably higher level, providing more incentive to train first.
