With the Good Rod you can fish for good Pokémon. Probably.

Mauville City

Heal up here from your Gym Battle before proceeding east onto Route 118. Also teach one of your Pokémon Surf; you’ll need that.

Route 118

There’s some stuff you could’ve done here back around the time you fought the Mauville Gym. Anyhow, go east to the water and begin to Surf across it.

On the other side will be a fisherman that gives you a Good Rod . You can also battle Gabby & Ty here if you didn’t on Route 111. Go south from there and examine the western of the two beach rocks to find an Iron , then battle the Fisherman to the southeast.

Continue northeast from there to the grassy part of the Route and you’ll meet up with Steven. As you chat with him, suddenly his "Latias" IconLatias/Latios will arrive. (It’ll be "Latias" IconLatias in Omega Ruby and "Latios" IconLatios in Alpha Sapphire.)
