Welcome to Route 111, one of the few Routes that features no grass.

Begin by going northeast and north for a bit and you’ll find a Pokémon Breeder pacing around. When you see him, go west and you will find the Winstrates’ House, a place where you can take on four straight battles. ("Winstrate" = "win straight", get it?)

Speak with the man at the door to begin! After the four battles, you’re welcomed into their home and the mother will hand you a Macho Brace. When held by a Pokémon, it doubles the rate at which their EVs in all stats go up, although it temporarily reduces their Speed stat.

It may be a good idea to hold the Macho Brace for a while, though their EVs will eventually max out. (To check, go to the Super Training app and look at the bar of the right side of the screen; if filled in whole, the Pokémon has 510 - or maxed - EVs.)

Once done, head back onto the main Route and head further north. If you haven’t taught a Pokémon Rock Smash, now is the time, for you’ll need to break some boulders to proceed forward! As you go along, you’ll see a couple in a corner of the mountainside, sort of a news anchoring duo.

Speak with them to battle, and, after, get pointlessly interviewed. After, go northwest and battle the Picnicker, and a Camper further off to the north. There’s a Backpacker even further off to the north.

If you went off further to the north, you’d find a lot of sand. A lot. So much so that it even flies through the air and blinds you, so it’s better to avoid that Route until we get some Go Goggles or whatever this game’s variant of them are. So instead, just go west to Route 112 .
