It’s the first Route that you went through in Black/White! Coolies! Strangely it’s crazily windy nowadays, so it makes for a bit of an interesting experience. Head through the Tall Grass to your south and talk to the female Backpacker below. ‘Is it another battle?’ ‘Why yes, yes it is!’

Pokemon Level Type
Omanyte 62 Rock/Water

Head south along the path until you hit the next Backpacker. Challenge him!

Head east into the Tall Grass. Use your Dowsing MCHN to find the hidden Ultra Ball . Talk to the woman wandering around in the Tall Grass and she’ll give you a Poiton . Deja vu to the max. From here, you can continue south all the way until you hit Nuvema Town .

You might want to head there first before exploring the rest of Route 1 . Once you’re done there, head to the steps taking you west, down to the water. Move onto the water and begin Surfing south. When the water takes you west, follow it until you reach the land at the end.

When you do, move onto it then head up the stairs taking you east. Move south into the Dark Grass, then west over to the Ace Trainer moving about. Need we state what ensues?

On the top of the hill that the Ace Trainer was circling is a hidden item. Obviously, use your Dowsing MCHN to find what turns out to be Protein . From there, head south-west down to the female Pokemon Ranger. Take her on!

Trainer Battle: Pokemon Ranger

Pokemon Level Type
Vigoroth 64 Normal
Victreebel 64 Grass/Poison

Move down the thin little path leading south along the trees to the right of the Ranger. At the end is a Prism Scale . Pick it up, backtrack to the Ranger then head west until you reach the gate. Head through to Route 17 on the other side.
