It’s the city of the 8th Gym Leader and the final city before the Pokemon League . Erhmahgerd! Once you’ve left the tube, move north and talk with Hugh. Let’s get to exploring! Head west first, down onto the beach below. The Pokemon Center’s here. Feel free to heal your Pokemon here and stock up on items.

Exit then head back towards the Marine Tube entrance and head north. The large glass building is the Humilau City Gym , but you can’t challenge Marlon, the Gym Leader just yet. Instead continue east, then head north along the path. Head over the bridge and try and enter the first house that you see.

A man will jump out of the water and discreetly tell you to come to the Gym. How odd. Anyway, that was Marlon. If you want to, skip straight to the Humilau City Gym section. If not, let’s continue exploring! Enter the house here. The bald man inside is the third Move Tutor! His 'wares' are as follows:

Yellow Shards Yellow Shards
2 Bind, Snore
4 Heal Bell, Knock Off
6 Synthesis, Roost
8 Sky Attack, Role Play
10 Heat Wave, Giga Drain, Drain Punch, Pain Split, Tail Wind

Once you’re done, head back outside. Head west, down the walkway ramp into the shallows. Use Surf on the water to the south. Head onto the beach to the south, then follow the beach west. Head up the stairs and grab the Shell Bell behind the Gym. **** Surf back to the shallows.

Continue west and move up the ramp there. Follow the walkway west and talk to the bald man. Now go back and enter the house nearby to the east. Check the bin on the east side of the house and you’ll find a Full Restore inside. Speak to the bald man if you want to trade a Mantine for a Tangrowth .

Leave the house and head down the ramp back down into the shallows to your east. Now move under the walkway north. Turn on your Dowsing MCHN and use it to find the nearby Heart Scale on the same tile that a walkway is on (It’s on one of the corner pillars of the walkway).

Once you have it, continue north-east under yet another walkway. To your east you will see an item near the edge of the shallows. Go and grab it to find that it’s a Heart Scale . Head back under the last walkway then head west under the one there. Move up onto the walkway here.

From Humilau City you you can travel south to Route 21 (shown to the left) or west to Route 22 (shown to the right).

Follow the walkway north-east and you’ll find a Protein at the end. Head south-west back to the ramp. If you want, you can head west down onto the sand there and you’ll be in Route 22 . You can explore this Route right now if you need the extra experience; you’ll go there eventually anyway.

Similarly, if you head south from the Pokemon Centre and use Surf , you can visit Route 21 , which leads to the back entrance of Seaside Cave . Or if you prefer, you can Fly back to Undella Town and enter Seaside Cave from the front entrance at Undella Bay.

Like Route 22, you’ll be required to visit these areas later (or the Seaside Cave at least; you can skip Route 21 if you enter from Undella Bay), so don’t feel obliged to explore them now. But if Marlon scares you, go ahead and train there. Otherwise head to the Gym and enter! It’s time to take Marlon on!!
