Only new one here is Shuppet. Shuppet evolves into Banette, a moderately powerful Ghost Pokémon. It is better known for its Mega Evolution, the second-strongest Ghost Mega Pokémon in the game, and the strongest such physically; rivalled only by Mega Gengar.
While Mega Banette won’t become something possible for a while, it would nonetheless be a good Pokémon to have for your collection, particularly come the next Gym or even the Ghost-themed member of the Elite Four.
Go east when you arrive and battle the Hex Maniac. Go northeast afterwards and snatch up the Persim Berries, Aspear Berries, and Rawst Berries before the Ace Trainer gets 'em; hey, first come, first served. She will mention that you can Fly to these fields after reaching Lilycove. That’s nice.
Anyhow, onto the main Route … then south, off the main Route, and east through the grass. Examine the easternmost grass tile to find an HP Up . Then get on the main Route and head east after.
Battle the Beauty as you go along. Further to the east, you’ll see some Team Aqua/Magma Grunts near Mt. Pyre, heading there for some "orb". Hmm… Nearby is the Safari Zone; Cut down the tree nearby if you want to get to it.
In any case, you can do several things at this moment. You can head onto Route 122 and then onto Mt. Pyre, or you can continue from here along to Lilycove City. Seeing as you’ll have to do this quest eventually, we would suggest the former, and that is why the section is laid out as such.
We’ll first cover the Safari Zone - since we’re here - but otherwise head over to the Route 122 page to get past there.
