Pokémon Evaluations

Nothing really special here that hasn’t been mentioned yet. There’s Zigzagoon still. "Mightyena" IconMightyena makes an okay Pokémon, and it’s pretty useful if you can get an elemental Fang move, though the most useful of them in this game will likely be the Ice Fang you could’ve already gotten.

Perhaps the best feature is "Ralts" IconRalts. "Ralts" IconRalts is a great Pokémon in general. Both "Gardevoir" IconGardevoir and "Gallade" IconGallade - Pokémon it can evolve into, depending on its gender - are great at sweeping a number of Pokémon types, they are relatively powerful, and even each get a Mega Evolution!

We would recommend getting both a male and female "Ralts" IconRalts if possible, but just one will more than suffice.

If a fellow Pokemon Trainer spots you, you must battle them.

When you get on the Route, go west and you’ll soon fight a Youngster as you go along the path. West from there, you will find a Bug Catcher. You can skip battling him if you go through the grass, but he just has a "Wurmple" IconWurmple. It’s not a real battle.

Further west from the Bug Catcher, or north of the non-battling Youngster in the southern grass, you’ll find some more grass. Once through the grass, you can battle a second Youngster. (You can skip him by going around to the north.)

If you head east of him, you’ll find two Berry trees, their first appearance in quite some time! Examine them and you can, in this instance, earn some Oran Berries and Pecha Berries , which heal some HP and Poison respectively.

Once you are done picking berries, go west and defeat the Lass next to the grass. Go south from her and through the grass (or over the ledge, whichever) to find a Potion next to the grass in the little alcove. Then go back to the Lass and head west into Petalburg.

As you near the end of the Route, Brendan/May will come along and point out some "Beautifly" IconBeautifly tranquilly flying by. Anyhow, onward!
