Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Guide Guide Info

Feather Badge

Fortree City

A breezy town built on top of treetops.

As usual, enter the Pokémon Center as you enter town and heal up; the Poké Mart will be to the south of there.

Pokémon Trade

Pokémon Given Pokémon Received Type Ability
Spinda Skitty Normal Cute Charm

If you head into the treetops on the northern side of the town, the westernmost treehouse will have a girl in it looking for you to trade your Spinda for her Skitty. Both are pretty terrible Pokémon, but Spinda is much easier to find than Skitty, so if you have the former but not the latter, may as well.

In the next house, speak with the elderly lady on the left and tell her the coin is in her right, then right, then left hands to receive TM10 (Hidden Power) – Hidden Power is a move whose power is set at 60, but its type varies depending on the Pokémon’s own IVs.

The woman next to her will be able to tell you the type of Hidden Power a Pokémon will have, should it learn Hidden Power. IVs are set-in and never change once the Pokémon is obtained or caught, so this type will remain constant throughout the game.

Hidden Power is typically used on Pokémon with good Sp. Atk. that simply can’t find a good fourth move for themselves and thus they use Hidden Power to provide additional coverage they may not otherwise obtain.

However, this can also require extremely intensive breeding, even when you’re obtaining the proper Pokémon, because it’s all based on whether a Pokémon’s IV values are even or odd, which can make things tedious.

If you begin going in the southern treehouses, the western one will have a Lass in it who will give you some Stairs for your base.

The building at the far east side is the Secret Base Guild; you’ll meet Aarune as you enter. To begin with, you’ll receive a Proclamation for your base. There are also a number of items to buy here for your base. If you want to, you can also battle Aarune.

For now, you won’t be able to enter the Gym. Instead, attempt to head towards Route 120 and you’ll see Steven go off towards there, too. First use the Dowsing Machine to find a Tiny Mushroom near the Pokémon Ranger, then head east to Route 120 .
