Jog to the right, you can avoid any fights by hugging the fence to the bottom of the route however the experience is worth it as the fights aren’t too hard, while Shopping Mall Nine , to the north of this route, is also worth your attention with some rare items and fights located inside.

Regardless of what you choose to do, just run through the gate house to the east when you’re ready to reach Opelucid City .
