There’s only a few trainers here, so it won’t take you too long to clear this Route. As soon as you enter the route, head north through the Tall Grass onto the hill. Turn on your Dowsing MCHN and keep it on throughout this area. Use it to find the Rare Candy on the eastern part of the hills.

Move north-east and grab the Timer Ball sitting between the Dark and Tall Grass. Head north-west and grab the Ultra Ball hidden in the Dark Grass. Keep heading west, following the Dark Grass. You’ll see a PP Up and Yellow Shard in the grass. Grab them, then continue west.

When your Dowsing MCHN picks up a hidden item, use it to find the hidden Max Repel . Now head east and challenge the Black Belt running around in wide circles.
