Routes and dungeons are often littered with items, some hidden or in out-of-the-way areas.

Once inside, starting walking and Shauna will come up behind you and tell you that she wants to travel with you. She offers to heal your Pokémon whenever you face and talk with her, so no need to complain! Get her to heal them straight away then begin exploring.

Let’s head west first. Continue that way past a person and into the tall grass; where in the corner you’ll see an item. Pick it up to find an Antidote . Head back out of the grass and head north. You’ll find another item nearby. Go over and pick it up too. It’s a Potion .

Now head back to the entrance and head east. You’ll find an item on the pathway. It’s another Potion . At this stage, you can never have enough Potions! Follow the path and you’ll run into the friends you made earlier. Feel free to speak with them if you want, although there’s no need. Once you’re good, keep going.

Shauna will stop you after a little while and show you how to find hidden items, giving you the Paralyze Heal she found. Good catch! Go north and you’ll find a youngster there. Feel free to talk with him and have him challenge you to a battle.

Once he’s defeated, head west then south, through the grass. Follow the path along until you see your rival. When you do, speak with her and she’ll give you one more Poké Ball . Yay! Continue on and you’ll bump into a battle-hungry Lass. Whoa, she’s got herself a "Pikachu" IconPikachu; lucky!

You can catch Fire, Grass and Water-type monkeys in this forest.

Continue past her down the thin path to your east. You’ll find a Poké Ball at the end. Sweet. Head back and continue on. In the next lot of tall grass you’ll find a Potion . Snatch it up and head north.

Once your out of the tall grass make sure to get Shauna to heal you as you won’t get another chance for a while. Keep heading north then and you’ll eventually arrive at the end of the forest. Your friends will catch up and you’ll be able to head into Route 3! Good progress.
