This place is a nice little spot for some training, as well as catching a wide variety of Grass- and Bug-type Pokemon! Make especially certain to look out for Shaking Grass here, as there are a wealth of amazingly awesome Pokemon that you can find in them.

Head north, over the bridge. Almost immediately you’ll come upon a Pokemon Breeder looking for a fight.

Pokemon Level Type
Tranquill 24 Normal/Flying
Liepard 24 Dark

From there, move over and grab the Ultra Ball in the tree hollow. Continue north, taking the path left of the hollow. Notice the large leaf on the ground? That’s a Pokemon Ranger… in disguise! Whoa! If you move next to her, she’ll reveal her true self and challenge you.

Trainer Battle: Pokemon Ranger

Pokemon Level Type
Trubbish 26 Poison

The Leaf Stone evolves certain Grass-type Pokemon. If unsure, call Professor Juniper on the Xtransceiver for advice.

Although a hidden item will show up on your Dowsing MCHN, it’s actually on the top of the cliff to your right. You need both Surf and Waterfall before you can reach it, so don’t worry about it at the moment.

Instead, continue on into the clearing. Go west to the bottom left corner of the clearing. A new hidden item will come up on your Dowsing MCHN. Use the MCHN to find it. You’ll find that it’s a Leaf Stone !

Now go north and talk to the ‘Backpacker’ looking at the tree stump. After conversing for a bit and selecting ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ (it doesn’t matter) to the question that he asks, he’ll give you TM95 - Snarl and be on his way. As he leaves, however, there’s a shocking twist…

When you’re ready to continue, make your way right, over to the patrolling Pokemon Ranger. Feel free to battle her.

Trainer Battle: Pokemon Ranger

Pokemon Level Type
Emolga 26 Electric/Flying

Continue east to find a Net Ball on the eastern side of the clearing. That’s all you can do here for now, besides trying to catch some wild Pokemon. Once you’re done, fly back to Nimbasa City. It’s time to hit up the New Nimbasa City Gym!
