Pokémon Evaluations

There’s not a lot good here. The main features are Roselia and Marill. Roselia makes for a decent Grass Pokémon if you lack one right now (we prefer Breloom or Grovyle), and Marill makes for a great Water Pokémon if you can get Huge Power on it.

Huge Power doubles its offensive power output with physical moves, which makes it very lethal at times. That boost considered, it’s like Azumarill - its evolution - would have a base 102 Attack, which is fairly high.

The main purpose of the Day Care is to produce Pokémon babies.

Immediately as you enter the Route, note that, to the north, is the Day Care.

The Day Care allows you to keep Pokémon there so that they will grow without you battling. Additionally, if two opposite-gender Pokémon of the same Egg Group are there, they will lay an Egg usually of the female’s species! The details are in the section Pokémon Breeding .

If you go west of the Day Care, you’ll find a Triathlete to fight. Return to the Day Care, then go south and then west for a Double Battle. Nearby will be four bushels of Pinap Berries , so grab a few. Go west and northwest from there to battle a Pokémon Breeder, then a Bug Maniac.

Once you defeat the latter, go northwest and Cut down the tree and go along the grassy path to find a Revive . Return to the main Route and go south and through the grassy patch to find a Great Ball .

Next, go north and west and into the flower patch. Go along the southwestern path from it and you’ll find a Mawilite at the end, the Mega Stone which will allow Mawile to Mega Evolve later on in the game.

Return to Route 117 proper and battle the other Pokémon Breeder to the north, then go west to Verdanturf.
