There are a few trainers to battle here. Run over to the first trainer, a Depot Agent dressed in green.

Trainer Battle: Depot Agent

Pokemon Level Type
Drilbur 25 Ground

Now follow the path south. You’ll come upon a cyclist cycling around and around along a stretch of path. Move into his sight to start a battle.

Trainer Battle: Cyclist

Pokemon Level Type
Tranquill 25 Normal/Flying

Before heading into the tall grass north of the road, let’s follow it and defeat the trainers there first. Continue right, down the road. You’ll come upon two guys who’re itchin’ for a Double Battle. Move in front of them and the battle will begin.

Double Battle: Backers

Pokemon Level Type
Scraggy 24 Dark/Fighting
Scraggy 24 Dark/Fighting

Continue along the path until you reach the next Cyclist. Battle her.

Trainer Battle: Cyclist

Pokemon Level Type
Whirlipede 25 Bug/Poison

Continue along the path and enter the gate to Marvelous Bridge. Sadly you can’t go through until you’ve beaten the Champion. But you can talk to the man next to the Vending Machine for a free Fresh Water .

Return to Route 16. Run back to the large boulder next to the Backers. If you haven’t taught Strength to a Pokemon, it’d be a good idea to do it now (It’s HM04 in your backpack). Teaching it to a Normal-type is a very good idea as they’ll do 120 base damage whenever they use it in battle.

Use Strength on the boulder, then push it into the hole. Now you can move through the Dark Grass area! Move in and follow the path along until you come upon the female Backpacker. Talk to her for yet another battle.

Trainer Battle: Backpacker

Pokemon Level Type
Liepard 25 Dark

Payback is best used by slow Pokemon. Ideally one that take a few hits!

To the right of the Backpacker is a small gap behind the fence. Walk into the gap and follow it to the item. It’s TM66 - Payback ! How cool! Move back to the Backpacker. Turn on your Dowsing MCHN. It will show that there’s a hidden item to the north. Follow it to the gap in the dark grass at the top.

Pick it up to find that it’s a TinyMushroom . That’s all to do in the Dark Grass area, so backtrack to the road. Move left and enter the path there, off the road into the tall grass. Follow it until you reach the Backpacker who’s looking for a battle.

Trainer Battle: Backpacker

Pokemon Level Type
Watchog 25 Normal

You should notice a small tree to the left of the trainer. This small tree can be cut by using HM01 - Cut! Mow down the tree, then move down the path that you just opened. Grab the Heal Ball at the end of it. Head back to the trainer and take the path leading north-east.

You’ll see an entrance to another area at the end of the path. This leads to Lostlorn Forest . Enter at your own peril! You may want to heal your Pokemon first though.
