How nasty; having hidden items without the ability to use the Dowsing Machine.

If you’re planning to head onto Route 129, Fly first to Mossdeep and stock up. (It’s not just that, but it’s also the closest viable Fly spot to Route 129.) Surf southward for a while through the Routes to Route 129, past the big “O” marking Route 128’s Seafloor Cavern.

Try to enter along the easternmost side of Route 129 and head first to the southeastern corner of it so you can adequately navigate around. Go northwest from this Dive trench to battle a Fisherman or two.

Dive into the trench and go east and surface in the isolated light there; on the way, mash A in that empty spot in the grass for a Blue Shard , and also go north of the light and examine the northeast portion of the small empty spot to find a Lustrous Orb for "Palkia" IconPalkia.

Once above, you can go south to find the Secret Shore area, mostly just a Secret Spot hotspot. If that interests you, go on ahead, but otherwise return underwater.

Go southwest to the sunless seaweed patch. Mash A around the easternmost of the empty grass tiles to find a Splash Plate and also battle the Trainer to the northwest. Surface to the southwest of him and use the Dowsing Machine on that island to find a Big Pearl and a Heart Scale .

Return underwater and now go north from Jason to the initial Dive trench area. As you go west, there will be a big rock to the north; the empty area in the grass to its west contains a Zap Plate somewhere; mash A at random as usual.

Go south of its west end to find another Diver. Northwest of him is a rock; go to it, then west and pay attention for a Diver to the north. Battle, then return to the initial Dive trench and resurface.

Surfacing near the west end of the Dive trench will lead you into sight of an Ace Trainer (or at least you’ll see her); battle! Go west from there and battle the Triathlete, then go back to the Ace Trainer and northwest for a Swimmer battle.

Head west to the Dive trench from him and then south to battle another Swimmer. I think that’ll be it for the Route. Go west from there towards the next Route; at the transition, though, Dive down and go southeast and spam the A Button around that little empty square to find the Toxic Plate .
