Alright, time to set our sights towards the next town!

As soon as you enter, Trevor and your rival will call you over. You and Trevor will compare Pokédexs as usual and your rival will challenge you to a battle. Let’s see how your rival has grown!

After defeating your rival the rest of your friends will show up. After some chatting everyone will move on. Head north until you meet a Pokémon Ranger. Just so you know, you can encounter Pokémon in Tall Grass, like normal, but now also in shallow or deep puddles, so watch out.

There are also deep tiles in the deep puddles that you can get stuck in. If you do, move back the way you came and head around a different way. Anyway; battle times.

Trainer Battle: Pokemon Ranger Melina

Pokémon Level Type
Arbok 35 Poison
Pyroar 37 Fire/Normal

Super Potions will provide a decent level of healing to one of your Pokémon.

Now turn on your Dowsing Machine and use it to find the Tiny Mushroom east of the Ranger. Continue east from her through the tall grass. From there, head north and you’ll find a Cleanse Tag . Head back to the Ranger and head west. You’ll see an item behind a log. Head around it and grab the item. It’s a Big Mushroom .

Head back around the log and continue on north. There’s another Ranger here.

Head a little north; then east. It’s a Hex Maniac…

Pokémon Level Type
Poliwhirl 35 Water
Fraxure 36 Dragon
Loudred 34 Normal

Head west from the Pokemon Ranger to find a Hyper Potion half hidden in the puddle. Move back to the Ranger and head north. You’ll see a woman here. She’ll give you TM06 - Toxic . Cool as! Now use Surf to move over to the other side of the deep water. Grab the Damp Rock there then head back over the water.

Head east from the woman and you’ll bump into a little girl near some grass. Take her on!

Trainer Battle: Fairy Tale Girl Imogen

Pokémon Level Type
Floette 33 Fairy
Slurpuff 35 Fairy

To reach TM 61 - Will-O-Wisp, you will need a Pokemon with HM01 - Cut.

Head over to the tree east of the girl. You’ll find a Roseli Berry under it. Pick it up then Cut the bush to your south-west. Head south and you’ll find TM61 - Will-O-Wisp! Return to the woman who gave you Toxic and head west from her. You’ll find your friends looking at a haunted house. You’ll all head inside and hear a tale from a man.

Back outside, everyone will split up and leave. From the house head south along the thin path. Wade through the deeper water and you’ll eventually find a Spell Tag . Now use your Dowsing Machine to find the nearby Revive . Head back to the haunted house. Go east then north from it. Follow the path and you’ll enter Laverre City!

Tip #038: It BURNS!

Like Poison, Burn inflicts constant damage to a Pokemon afflicted with it. But for an added burn, it also reduces the Pokemon’s physical damage output by a massive half! If you get burned, be sure it cure it ASAP or at least avoid using physical moves on the opponent. Fire-type Pokemon are immune to Burn, mind.
