Hyper Potion, Leppa Berry, Max Revive, TM50 Overheat, Protector


Here we are: at the final route of Unova. Getting to the end couldn’t be easier because this route is literally a straight road. That said, there are more than a few opportunities for going off the beaten track, so long as you have HM05 Waterfall from Route 18.

Next to the trailer in the centre of the route, you can launch yourself up the waterfall and score yourself a Max Revive and TM50 Overheat . If you Surf into the water south from the trailer and head right, you can descend the waterfall and explore the area down there.

Overheat causes major damage, but cripples your Special Attack, so good timings key.
