From where you left off, just before the last hollow tree, head south and down the small set of steps. Move south to the next set and move down those too. From there, head north, then east over to the Youngster. If you move into the space north of him, you’ll start a double battle with both the Lass and the Youngster.
But if you wish to, you can do these battles seperately by first talking to the Youngster from his west side, then taking the Lass on afterwards. Feel free to do it either way.
Double Battle: Lass and Youngster
Now continue up the steps and head west to the end. Turn that Dowsing MCHN on and use it to find the hidden BalmMushroom . Now backtrack to that hollow log and head through. You’ll stop before a crazy old dude screams out behind you, surprising both you and Cheren.
You’ll speak with him and he’ll leave. After he does, Cheren will hand you an Up-Grade . How sweet of him. He’ll then leave too. You’re once again alone.

At the end of the path is TM22 - SolarBeam with your name on it. Pick it up, then head back up the three sets of stairs. Now head along the thin path west along the south edge of this area. Continue around to the stairs leading down to the water. Move down them and continue around west.
