Thankfully the mazes in this area aren't exactly what you'd call difficult.

Well isn’t this place just a-maze-ing? Yes, sorry, that was absolutely terrible. Oh well! Let’s head north to where the clear entrances to the mazes are on either side. Let’s go into the western one first. Head in and grab the Repel by the entrance.

Now head south to the bottom, then west, then north, then east, then north, then west at the first junction, then south at the next possible junction. You should be at a dead end. Stand just before the last tile of the dead end and press the A button to find the hidden item Honey .

Now just head north through the maze until you make past the flowers and into the next part of the maze. There’s a person patrolling there, let’s take him on like the awesome trainers we are.

Tip #009: Save Your Sanity With Repel

Encountering wild Pokemon is nice, but sometimes you may be in a hurry or perhaps you’re tired of seeing the bazillionth Zubat. In which case a spray of Repel and you’ll avoid all wild Pokemon for a number of steps! For best effects, your Pokemon should be higher Level than the wild ones or you’ll still bump into them.

Trainer Battle: Gardener Wheaton

Pokémon Level Type
Corphish 10 Water

We'll save you a good amount of money as you pick up all the free items en-route.

Now grab the Antidote near Wheaton. Once you have it, you’re all done on this side. Backtrack back to where you entered the maze originally. Now enter the eastern maze instead. Follow it as it loops around. Continue until you reach the Super Potion .

Once you have it, move north through the flowers into the next part of the maze. Collect the Great Ball here. That’s all you can do in the mazes, so head back out onto the path and continue north until you reach the steps with the skaters past them.

When you’re right to, head down the steps and take on some skaters. The one on the outside going anti-clockwise has the following team (if you can call one Pokemon a team!).

Trainer Battle: Roller Skater Calida

Pokémon Level Type
Fletchling 10 Normal/Flying

The one going clockwise on the inside has the following Pokemon.

Trainer Battle: Roller Skater Roland

Pokémon Level Type
Pidgey 10 Normal/Flying

After defeating them, feel free to check out the splendid fountain. Once you’re done, head north and up the steps. Up ahead you’ll find two paths you can follow. Let’s clear out all the Pokémon trainers here. That means we’ll take the right path and take on the person at the entrance to it.

Trainer Battle: Poke Fan Agnes

Pokémon Level Type
Burmy 7 Bug
Burmy 7 Bug
Burmy 7 Bug

Head past her and take on the next trainer.

Trainer Battle: Preschooler Adrian

Pokémon Level Type
Magikarp 9 Water

After laughing at Adrian and actually feeling a little bad for the poor kid, head west and into that little alcove where the Poison Barb item is. Pick it up and head back out. Now let’s take on the next trainer who you can see to the west.

Trainer Battle: Preschooler Mia

Pokémon Level Type
Budew 9 Grass/Poison

Head north. You’ll see a maze entrance to your left. Go into it. Where you see the first dead end, move up to the last tile before the end and interact with the end tile to find some more Honey . Once you have it keep following the maze north until you reach the next Gardener. Battle time!

Trainer Battle: Gardener Grover

Corphish is weak to Grass and Electric moves. Keep your Fire types away though.

Pokémon Level Type
Corphish 10 Water

Move west past him to grab the Net Ball . Sweet! Now head back out of the maze and head north, then east. You’ll see a man standing in the flowers just south of you. Get his attention for a battle.

Trainer Battle: Poke Fan Gabe

Pokémon Level Type
Pichu 7 Electric
Pikachu 9 Electric

From there, let’s head east to the entrance to that maze. Head in and up to the Gardener to invite him to a challenging match.

Trainer Battle: Gardener Fabian

Pokémon Level Type
Pichu 7 Electric
Corphish 10 Water

The Professor's assistants love giving you helpful items and upgrades.

Keep heading north from there. Where you see the area with three dead ends (two of which are very short), look at the last tile of the longer one of the three to find a Super Potion . Once you have it, continue over to the item at the end and pick it up to find that it’s an Ether .

Head back to the main path over to where you defeated Poké Fan Gabe. Head north from him and you’ll have two of the professor’s assistants speak with you. They’ll tell you about the new Fairy-type and then will ask whether you want to visit the professor.

Damn well agree so that you can explore Lumiose City . When you do, they’ll head inside. Follow them in and the male assistant will hand you TM27 which teaches Return . Now head on through.
