The Old Rod only lets you hook a small number of Pokémon in the water.

Head down onto the beach and head north. Past the two large and one small rock you’ll see two more small rocks. Check the south-western one for an Ultra Ball . Head north-west and grab the Mago Berry from the tree.

Continue east from there until you run into a swimmer who’ll promptly hand you a Dowsing Machine to use to find hidden items! Bring it out to learn how to use it. Head only a small way south-east and you’ll find a Pearl near the swimmer. Head further south-east with it out and you’ll be able to find a Heart Scale hidden in the sand too.

Head back to the swimmer and continue north. You’ll be stopped by another swimmer, but this time she wants to battle.

Finally you’ll see a swimmer walking up and down along the beach. Get in her line of sight if you want to fight.

From there, head north and you’ll be in Cyllage City.
