Verdanturf Town

Verdanturf Town is a pretty featureless town for the most part. The main feature you’ll find here is the ability to buy Nest Balls. Given the level of recent Pokémon, it will have a catch rate of about 1.8x-2.5x for a little while longer, so that’s nice.

There’s also another Contest Hall here; the actual functionality is no different, but there’s a Lass inside who will give you TM45 ( Attract).

Rusturf Tunnel

You can get here from the northwest part of town. Inside, as usual, it’s just Whimsur. Go north and beat up the Hiker, though, and further north a Max Ether can be found. For now, that’s all you can do inside the tunnel so head back to the entrance, then west and use the exit over there.

Route 116

Here, go east a bit and use the Dowsing Machine to find the Black Glasses , an item the Bug Catcher nearby is looking for, but he’ll decide to let you have them, them not being his. Also be sure to ascend the stairs nearby and go east for an HP Up .

That’ll do it for this side-tracking. Let’s look somewhere else once you return to Mauville.
