Points of Interest

  • There is a scientist in the Season Research Lab who wishes to see all four Deerling forms. Satisfy his demands (which requires around 3 months of game time, unless you "cheat") and you'll be rewarded with a **Leaf Stone** .

Guide

Simply follow the path; it’s a simple one-way trip. There are a couple of trainers but many can be avoided. When you pass the hiker on the bridge the house here can act as a Pokémon Center, handy considering the trials to come.

You can find two Leaf Stones here: one from a Scientist and another on the floor.
