Welcome to the Kalos seaside! Or the view to the seaside, for now.

Welcome to the Kalos seaside! Or the view to the seaside, for now.

Head west and down the stairs. You’ll be stopped by Sycamore’s assistants who will upgrade your Pokédex! Awesome! You’ll have a bunch of new Pokémon you’ll now be able to encounter and record in the future. Now instead of going into the grass to the south, follow the path leading west.

You’ll come upon some ledges. Make sure to jump over the more western ones because you’ll eventually run into a HP Up which you can grab. Once you have it, jump east over a ledge, then south to the next lot of grass. Near the grass you’ll find your next trainer.

Trainer Battle: Rising Star Paulette

Pokémon Level Type
Axew 19 Dragon

Once defeated; move through the grass, up the stairs and continue on. In a tiny clearing in the flower field you’ll meet another trainer.

Trainer Battle: Rising Star Rhys

Pokémon Level Type
Pancham 15 Fighting
Skiddo 16 Grass
Goldeen 17 Water

Continue south through the flowers until you reach the stairs. Head down them and head west. You’ll see a Black Belt you can challenge.

Trainer Battle: Black Belt Cadoc

Pokémon Level Type
Machop 20 Fighting

The Leaf Stone evolves Gloom, Weepinbell, Exeggcute, Nuzleaf or Pansage.

Now head south-east to the grass and head on through. You’ll find stepping stones that you can jump along. Don’t jump onto them by the first path, but head south first. You’ll see second and third paths too.

Take the second path onto the stepping stones and jump over to the other side where an item’s waiting. Turns out it’s a Leaf Stone ; which is awesome. Now head back up to the first path and use it to jump south along the stepping stones. Once you’ve made it past the stepping stones, you’ll be in the next town!

Tip #016: Cons of Evolution

Evolution stones like the Leaf Stone are great for pumping up your Pokemon, but be warned that Pokemon evolved with stones generally cannot learn anymore new moves by leveling up. So it’s best to use the stone after your Pokemon has learned all their moves - or their best ones anyway. Eevee is a major exception though and should be evolved ASAP.
