After Steven leaves, it's time to follow him. Go north onto Route 127, then west to Route 126.
In this new route, head northwest for a bit and battle the Triathlete there. Go southwest of him to battle a Swimmer, then continue going counterclockwise around the white rock (Sootopolis's crater) to another Swimmer. Go east of there and beat the Ace Trainer, then northwest for another Swimmer.
While you're here, don't forget the various Trainers underwater to battle. Along the southwest side of outer Sootopolis, you can find a square-shaped patch of seaweed; press A while facing the southeast tile of its empty center to get a Pearl .
Also, if you head northwest of Scuba Diver Tristan (along the north side) you'll find a patch of light to surface at; from there, go northeast abovewater to a Dive area, then to another beachy area with a Green Shard .
Another surfacing area, west of the main Route's underwater part, will bring you to another Swimmer to fight. Abovewater, southwest of the main Sootpolish white rock crater is a Dive area. Go southwest from it and surface to find the Secret Islet , where a Secret Base can be made.
Okay, that's it. Go to the southern part of the crater, Dive, then go into the cave there and surface when inside the cave.
