Azure Bay is really easy to miss: follow the water north on Route 12.

Follow the water around and you’ll run into a swimmer.

Trainer Battle: Swimmer M Kieran

Pokémon Level Type
Remoraid 27 Water
Skrelp 27 Poison/Water
Wailmer 27 Water

Once he’s beaten, head west to the female swimmer.

Trainer Battle: Swimmer F Romy

Pokémon Level Type
Slowpoke 30 Water/Psychic

Head north from there, over to the small island. Speak with the man there that’s not the fisherman to receive an Ampharosite . Oh yes! Now you can evolve Ampharos into Mega Ampharos ! Anyway, speak with the Fisherman here for a fight.

Trainer Battle: Fisherman Ewan

Pokémon Level Type
Clauncher 27 Water/Psychic
Carvanha 29 Water/Dark

To the east of the Fisherman is a Photo Spot. Feel free to make use of it. Now head back into the water and move north-west from the island. You’ll bump into the final trainer of the area here.

Trainer Battle: Swimmer F Isla

Pokémon Level Type
Corsola 28 Water/Rock
Lanturn 28 Water/Electric

You'll eventually find a Legendary bird Pokemon here, after beating the Elite Four.

Head north from her and you’ll reach an item with tall grass on it. That and a Big Pearl . Snatch it up then head north, north-west and you’ll reach Sea Spirit’s Den . Head around behind it to find a Splash Plate .

You can head inside; but there’s not going to be any use for it until well after you beat the Elite Four. That’s all there is to do here; so feel free to Surf your way back to the beach that you came from on Route 12 - Fourrage Road . When you do, head east from it into Courmarine City!

Tip #031: Plates For A Pokemon God

Been wondering about all these plates you’ve been picking up, like the Splash Plate ? As well as boosting the damage of moves of the plate’s type when held by a Pokemon, the plates also change the type of legendary Pokemon Arceus and its signature move Judgement .
