A Stint on Route 106

A simple shoreline connecting Dewford Town to the Granite Cave.

Recommended Levels: 15-18

Local Trainers Pokémon

Name Money Party
Fisherman Ned 416 Tentacool Lv. 13
Backpacker Graeme 312 Slakoth Lv. 13
Fisherman Elliot 384 Magikarp Lv. 10, Tentacool Lv. 12

Route 106

Route 106 is actually mostly an oceanic Route (heck, what isn’t in Hoenn?), but there’s still a bit on land for you to deal with.

North of the Route transition, you can see a sign. Follow the shoreline and carry on to the part where the water meets the sand. A bit west of the next right angle ("L"-type, in other words) turn, you should face south and press A along this general area to find a Heart Scale .

Northwest of where the transition to Route 106 occurs is a Fisherman, well, fishing. Speak with him for a quick battle. There’s another battle with the Backpacker to the west. Be sure to examine the large boulder north of him to find some Stardust !

From here, go north and west along the shoreline to find another Fisherman to battle and a Protein . Proteins are much like Zincs: they boost your Attack EVs by 10.

Next, stand north of the Fisherman and face east. Walk several steps eastward, each time pressing A to examine the tile in front of you; one will yield a Poké Ball .

Anyhow, backtrack to where the Backpacker was and go southwest and into the cave.

Granite Cave - 1F

Because it's a TM, you can teach and overwrite Flash as the situation dictates.

Pokémon Encounters

Name Type Location Encounter Rate
Zubat Poison/Flying Cave/Horde 40%, 60% (Horde)
Abra Psychic Cave 15%
Geodude Rock/Ground Cave/Horde 5%, 35% (Horde)
Makuhita Fighting Cave/Horde 40%, 35% (Horde with Geodude), 5% (Horde)

When you enter, begin by simply heading along the path for a moment. You’ll soon find a Hiker along the way who will give you TM70 (Flash). Flash is not a real HM move in and of itself - at least, not anymore - but it can still be used to light up dark areas.

Luckily, since it’s a TM, you’ll be able to re-replace the move with another TM move once you beat the Dewford Gym. We ended up teaching it to our Ralts, since she still had Growl and we didn’t really care for that. Strictly speaking, you don’t need it, so long as you’re a careful navigator.

Anyhow, for now that’s it; return to Dewford and go into the Gym.
