If you came here from Lacunosa Town, then you’ll likely be heading west towards the next major landmark, Village Bridge. There’s nothing remarkable special about this route, so enjoy the ride, the battles and the scenery.

Energy Ball is a no frills move; nothing too special, but something you can rely on.
