Get ready; there will be a number of gyms in quick succession.

Head south from the gate, through the tall grass. You’ll find a bush on the other side. Cut it down then head around to find a Aspear Berry tree. Grab the berry on the ground and head back to the gate.

Head north from the gate now, into the tall grass there. In the north-east corner of the fenced off area is a tile that doesn’t have tall grass on it, but instead contains a hidden item. Check it to find Honey . Head back to the gate again.

If you haven’t yet defeated Korrina, head to the Shalour City Gym and do that now. Until you do, you can’t head down the steps to the east. If you’ve beaten her; head straight on down. It’s your first water route! Teach HM03 - Surf to one of your Pokemon if you haven’t yet.

Once you have; speak to the guy by the sign and he’ll offer you a "Lapras" IconLapras (you’ll need an empty slot to take it); then interact with the water and use the move. You’ll move out onto the water. There’s a swimmer here swimming up and down the channel. Take him on!

Trainer Battle: Swimmer M Alessandro

Pokémon Level Type
"Qwilfish" IconQwilfish 29 Water/Poison
"Binacle" IconBinacle 29 Rock/Water

Now that he’s defeated; head over to the other bank. Head south along the beach until you meet the Backpacker. Fight time.

Trainer Battle: Backpacker Joren

Pokémon Level Type
"Linoone" IconLinoone 28 Normal

Don’t take the steps leading east just yet. Instead turn on your Dowsing Machine and head south along the beach. At the bottom end you’ll be able to find a Net Ball . Once you have it, head back to the stairs and up them.

You’ll see the entrance to the ranch to your north, head up it, then follow the path north-west along to the house. Enter it. Talk with the girl inside to receive TM45 - Attract . Now head back outside and down into the field with all of the "Gogoat" IconGogoats. Move next to one that’s not sleeping and try and walk into it to mount it!

Guess what? You can jump over ledges now; both ways! You can’t however move up or down stairs. Jump out of the field then move north-east. You’ll see a number of ledges here. Jump over all of them then dismount. Run up the steps and grab the Shiny Stone there.

"Exeggcute" IconExeggcute is weak to Flying, Poison, Bug, Ghost, Fire, Ice and Dark moves.

Get back on "Gogoat" IconGogoat and jump back over the ledges. Now head south through the field until you see a ledge to your left (the one south of the one leading back into the "Gogoat" IconGogoat field). Jump over it and dismount. Move north up to the fence, then move west along it.

You’ll find a Whipped Dream here. Get back on "Gogoat" IconGogoat. Head back to the field he started in and dismount. You can wander around first if you want; but for the purposes of this guide we’ll walk through the rest of the route.

Head back out of the ranch. You should now see a field of flowers to your south. Head through them to the other side. Take the path leading down west and follow it along. Cut the bush and grab the Leftovers behind. Head back to the main path and take it south, then east. You’ll come upon a trainer!

Trainer Battle: Pokemon Breeder Amala

Turn on your Dowsing Machine to find the Ice Heal nearby. Now use Surf and move onto the water to your north. Head north and when you see the little alcove to your west, head there and get off onto the shadows.

Check the small rock here to find a Water Stone . Head back onto the water. Move east, then north. Keep going until you reach Azure Bay! This is a bit of a hidden extra area. Enjoy!
