As you enter the area from Route 104, there will be a bit of a rock barrier. Battle the female Swimmer near there, then go east/southeast to the Triathlete. A bit to the south - about 1, 1.5 screens - you should see another female Swimmer to battle.

West of there, on a small island, you’ll be able to battle a Ruin Maniac, then a male Swimmer in the water just to the west of there. Get on the mainland to the west of there and go south to find an Iron , and also use the Dowsing Machine to find a Big Pearl next to it.

If you Surf off to the north of there, you’ll find a place not unlike that we found on Route 111’s desert (minus the sand in your face). This is a place you will later find the legendary Regice at, but, for now, let’s leave 'er be.

Return to the main Route and, near the next rock barrier to the south, you’ll find another Swimmer. Just to the southwest are some small islands; land on the smallest one and you’ll find a Heart Scale by examining the tile just south of the lone rock on it.

Going much further south puts you on the next Route.
