Next you choose a name. The first option is to put one in yourself, the other four are predefined names. I suggest that you choose a name. Press Select 2 times to access the English alphabet. Put in a name. When you are done choose the bottom choice on the far left of the screen to submit the name. For the next choose the top option to confirm the name. There is a bit more talking before you appear in a truck. A few moments later you can get out of the truck by exiting to the right. An arrow will appear to show you where to exit. You are now in Mishiro Town(1 on the Map).
Mishiro Town ------------ A person comes out and there is more talking. You automatically go inside a building. Then there is more talking. When it stops, head up the stairs and look at the clock. Set the time using the Left and Right arrow keys and press A to submit the time. Choose the top option to confirm the time. Then there is more talking. Look at the computer on the far right of your room. Choose the top option three times to withdraw the item. Press B a few times to turn off the computer. Go downstairs. Even more talking. Next head outside. Enter the building to the left/right of where you are. A little more talking. Go upstairs and talk to the person there. That's your rival. He/she will be the opposite gender of the character you choose. For this guide the rival will be referred to as a guy. Go downstairs and leave the building. Go up to leave the town. A person will stop you to talk for a moment, then continue on.
You will see a Pochiena chasing the professor. When you have control again go look at the bag. Choose your starting Pokemon. You will enter your first battle. You have four options: Attack(top left), Item(top right), Switch(bottom left) and Run(bottom right). The only item you have is a Potion. Since you don't have any damage, you don't need it right now. You have no Pokemon to switch to. You can't run so your only option is to attack. The Pochiena won't be too much of a challenge. Just use the attack that does damage.
After the battle, you go to the lab back in Mishiro Town. After some talking, you get to keep the Pokemon you choose. You are then given a choice to nickname it. Top is yes, bottom is no. After a bit more talking you get another choice. The game won't proceed until you choose yes, the top choice. Next we finally get to leave the town. Exit north onto Route 101.
Route 101 --------- Continue upwards through Route 101. You may encounter some wild Pokemon. They aren't too powerful and you will easily be able to beat them by just using a damaging attack. The path is straightforward. Eventually you will reach Cotoki City(2 on the map).
Cotoki City ----------- The first building you see is a Pokemon Centre. It has the letters P.C on it. This is the place where you can heal your injured Pokemon for no charge. When you enter it, there is a lady at the desk beside a large machine. Talk to her to heal your Pokemon. There is a Pokemon Centre in every town. You will be visiting them frequently. When you are done, leave Cotoki City through the northern exit on to Route 103.
Route 103 --------- Battle the wild Pokemon here to level up to Lv 6+, you have a tough battle ahead. After you are done, go back to town to heal at the Pokemon Centre, buy Potions(first item, cost 300) then come back to Route 103. At the top of the route you will battle your rival for the second time. When you talk to him, he will challenge you to a battle. Just use a damaging attack, you should win due to your higher level, use a Potion if you need to. Head back to Cotoki City to heal.
Cotoki City ----------- After healing at the Pokemon Centre head for the South end of town and talk to your rival again. Afterwards, travel south back through Route 101 to Mishiro Town.
Mishiro Town ------------ Go into the large building at the South end of town. Walk up and talk to the professor who is standing beside your rival. You will get a Pokedex and 5 Pokeballs. Leave the building and head back try to go back to Cotoki City. Before you can leave town, your mom will stop you and give you a pair of Running Shoes. Now you can hold B to run! Travel back to Route 101 and gee to Cotoki City again.
Cotoki City ----------- As always heal when you reach the town. If you like you can buy more Pokeballs here now. Anyways, this time exit the town through the West exit. You will enter Route 102.
Route 102 --------- The Pokemon on this route are a little stronger but still no match for your Pokemon. But now you face a new challenge, trainers. Trainer battles are one time events. After you beat them you can't fight them again with exception to trainers that are recorded in your Trainer Eye. They will sometimes want a rematch. You can't run from a trainer battle and frequently you must battle more then one Pokemon in a row. On the upside, Trainers give 1.5 times more experience and give you money when you win. The Trainers on this Route are still no match for you. Just use your damaging attack and you won't have to heal. Keep going left along this route. Like Route 101 it's very straightforward. You will eventually reach Touka City(3 on the map).
Touka City ---------- This town has a special place in it called a gym. As you progress through the game, you will need to defeat all the 8 Gym Leaders for badges to enter the Pokemon League. Heal your Pokemon and enter the Gym. Talk to the person inside. Another person will then come in. You will automatically leave the gym so the person can show you how to catch Pokemon. Afterwards you will automatically go back to the gym. You can't battle in this gym until you have 4 badges so leave it and exit the town to the left to access Route 104.
You may want to catch some Pokemon for your team. To do so, you need to get into a battle with a wild Pokemon. After weakening it, use the Pokeball item. If you are lucky, you will catch the Pokemon. If not try again. Careful if you faint the opponent Pokemon, the battle ends and you don't get a chance to catch it. You can also go back to the previous routes for different Pokemon.
Route 104 --------- There are a few trainers on Route 104. They are a little tougher, but your Pokemon is still a higher level and you should win easy. Keep in mind to heal as needed. Route 104 is really short. Just go left, then up the left. Eventually you will reach the entrance to Touka Forest. Go in.
Touka Forest ------------ From the start go right. In the lower right corner of the Forest you can find an exit that leads to an item. The item is a Pokeball. Go back into the forest and go all the way to the left. Continue down this path and you will meet up with a member of Team Aqua/Magma who challenges you to a Pokemon Battle. He is a little more difficult then the previous trainers but he is still not too hard, but you might have to switch or use a Potion if your Pokemon gets too weak. For your troubles you get a Great Ball. Follow the path and you will leave Touka Forest and onto the other side of Route 104.
Route 104 --------- There will be a building in front of you. Enter it and talk to all the people. Next go behind the building for an Potion. After that continue down the path to the right. There are still a couple more trainers. Head onto the bridge. One of the trainers here will challenge you to a 2 on 2 match. Its just like a normal battle with two changes. You need to choose the target of your attacks. Second, you must assign attacks to both Pokemon. However they won't battle if you only have one Pokemon in your team. Keep going up and at the end of the road you will get to Kanazumi City(4 on the map).
Kanazumi City ------------- The first city with a Gym you can fight in. Once again heal your Pokemon at the Pokemon Centre. Buy some Potions and X Defends in the shop, you will need them in the gym. Finally, head for the Gym in the top right corner of the town. This is a Rock Pokemon Gym. The first trainer has a Lv10 Geodude, Lv8 Geodude and a Lv6 Geodude. The next trainer has a Lv11 Geodude. Neither of them will be too much of a problem. The Gym Leader has a Lv14 Geodude and Lv15 Kuchiito. She might be a problem. Start the battle by using your X Defends and Potions. Then attack use either a Special Based attack or a Physical Attack that isn't resisted by the opponent. The X Defend bonus and healing from Potions should keep you alive to win the battle.
ii. Up to the Second Gym ++++++++++++++++++++++++ Kanazumi City ------------- After the gym battle, heal and exit the town to the northeast onto Route 116. You will be stopped by a person. After he stops talking continue to the right.
Route 116 --------- Keep going right along this route. At the end of the route there is the Kanashida Tunnel. When you try to enter it a person will talk to you. Afterwards go into the cave. Inside there is a Team Aqua/Magma member. Try to talk to him. Eventually he will battle you. After you beat him, return to Kanazumi City.
Kanazumi City ------------- The person will stop and talk to you again. You will be taken to a building. After some more talking leave the building. Go to the building to the left of the Pokemon Centre and talk to the person inside to get HM01 Cut. Teach HM01 to a Pokemon, remember HMs can NOT be overwritten. Milo Town doesn't have a store so stock up on Potions here. You may want some X Defend for the next Gym Leader. Heal your Pokemon and head for the South end of town. Talk to your rival there then leave the town through the South exit. Go through the Forest again. You will come to a house with a boat in front of it. Talk to the person inside and say yes. You will arrive in Milo Town.
Milo Town --------- The 2nd Gym is in this town, but first we should go get HM05. Exit the town through the North exit, you will enter Route 106.
Route 106 --------- Follow the land part of the route until you reach Rock Cave. Enter it. Talk to the person in front of you to get HM05 Flash. Head back to town and heal.
Milo Town --------- Now go to the Gym. This one is a Fighting Pokemon Gym. First off you will notice that it is dark inside. You can't use Flash yet either. Anyways head up until you reach the wall. Next go right 6 spaces. You will enter a Trainer battle. The trainer has a Lv14 Asanan. Just use your strongest attacks to win, if you can't win without items leave the gym to level up your Pokemon. As you will notice after you beat a trainer the light gets bigger. Next, head all the way up to the wall. Go left six spaces. You can go left to fight a Trainer battle or go up to skip it. The trainer has a Lv14 Machop. Afterwards head up to the wall. Go left for a trainer battle or right to face the Gym Leader. The Trainer has 2 Lv 12 Asanan and a Lv 12 Machop. The Gym Leader has a Lv17 Machop and Lv18 Makunosita. If you have any X Defends, they are very useful here.
iii. Up to the Third Gym ++++++++++++++++++++++++ Milo Town --------- After the battle, heal and head back to Rock Cave.
Rock Cave --------- Teach one of your Pokemon HM05, remember HM attacks can NOT be overwritten. Follow the path and go down the stairs. Have your Pokemon use HM05 Flash to light up the cave. Keep following the path. At the split take the top route. Go down the next set of stairs. Keep following the path and go up the next set of stairs. And the next set of stairs. Continue down the path again. At the end talk to the person. You will be seeing this guy a lot in the future. He will give you the Pokemon Navigator and TM47. Afterwards leave the cave. Go back to Milo Town.
Milo Town --------- Heal your Pokemon then go talk to the person beside the boat on the right side of town. Choose the middle option. You will board the ship and head for the next area, Route 109.
Route 109 --------- Fight the trainers in front of you. Head up to Kaina City(6 on the map). It's not very far.
Kaina City ---------- Heal at the Pokemon Centre. Enter the brown building on the right side of town beside the boats. Go straight up and talk to the person there. Then leave the building. Go into the green building that is above the brown building. Pay the entrance fee and then go up the stairs and prepare for battle against two members of Team Aqua/Magma. Talk to the scientist to start the chain of events leading to a battle. After their defeat, go heal your Pokemon and exit the town through the North Exit. Now entering Route 110.
Route 110 --------- After you go up a bit you can head west onto Route 103 to fight some trainers for experience and money. Otherwise continue to the right. After the next turn you will meet your rival who challenges you to a battle. I suggest healing before you fight him. You might also want to stock up on Super Potion. After you win continue upwards into the next town, Kinsetsu City(7 on the map).
Kinsetsu City ------------- Heal then go to the building to the right of Pokemon Centre. Talk to the person on the right. Choose the top option for his first question. Then he will ask which type of bike you want. The top option is for the Mach Bike, the bottom option is for the Dart Bike. The Mach Bike is faster but you need 4-5 steps to accelerate to top speed. It will allow you to go up mud slopes and cracked floor. The Dart Bike allow you to hop sideways. This is used on the thin white rails you will see in the future. Either one is good for now. Talk to the person again and choose the top option if you want to switch between the two Bikes. Next go to the Gym. The person in front of it will want to battle you. He has a Lv16 Rarutosu. You can go back to heal or enter the Gym. This is an Electric Pokemon Gym. The person with the yellow hair in front of you has a Lv18 Rakurai and Lv18 Magnemite. The person above him has a Lv19 Jiguzaguma. Go up and step on the button. The trainer on the right of you has three Lv17 Voltorb. Go all the way to the right and talk to the person for a battle. She has a Lv19 Asanan. Next head upwards to the Gym Leader. The Gym Leader has a Lv22 Magnemite, Lv20 Voltorb and Lv23 Magneton. I suggest leveling up to Lv25 for the battle. If you need exp you can fight trainers to the left and right of the town if you need more experience points. Also keep in mind that Magnemite and Magneton are Steel type and are weak to Fire attacks. Useful if you chose Torchic to start. If you still have any spare X Defend, they won't help too much in this Gym. You can buy X Speed in the mart if you need help out running Voltorb or to compensate for when you get Paralyzed.
iv. Up to the Fourth Gym ++++++++++++++++++++++++ Kinsetsu City ------------- Now that you have your third badge, heal and go to the building to the right of the shop. The person there will give HM06 Rock Smash. Find a Pokemon to teach it to. Then leave the town by the left exit.
Route 117 --------- This route is very straightforward. Just keep going left. You will eventually reach Shidake Town(8 on the map)
Shidake Town ------------ When you reach the Shidake Town, heal and enter the cave in the top left corner of town. Head up and use Rock Smash to break the cracked rocks. The person behind them will give you HM04 Strength. You won't need it for a while, but find a Pokemon to give it to anyways. Afterwards, leave the cave the way you came in. Then leave the town and go back to the Kinsetsu City. When you get there heal and head up to Route 111.
Route 111, 112 & 113 -------------------- On the left side of Route 111 you will see a person standing in front of a yellow house. If you talk to him and say yes, you will fight 4 trainer consecutively. Afterwards enter the house and talk to the person in the top right. You will get some sort of item. Exit the house and continue upwards on Route 111. Use Rock smash to break the cracked rocks in your way and continue upwards. Eventually you will reach a desert. You can't go in so stay on Route 111 and go to the left. You get to a mountainous area. On the left you will see a lift leading to Chimney Mountain, but it's blocked by Team Aqua/Magma members. You can't make them move yet. So just remember this place for when you need to go to Chimney Mountain. On the right you will find a cave called the Flame Loophole. Go into it. It's basically just a long tunnel. At the end you will come out on Route 112. But you will soon go back to Route 111. When you reach the split in the road, go up. You will see a person standing in front of a large tree. He will give you TM43 which is used to make secret bases. Next you will see a house. The person inside will heal your Pokemon. When you are done go left onto Route 113. On this route you will see red bumps that resemble a Pokeball. These are actually trainers who will challenge you if you get close. Continue to the left. You will find a house. Go in and talk to the person in white. He will give you an important item. Afterwards continue left on Route 113. After a while you will come to the Hajitsuge Town(9 on the map).
Hajitsuge Town -------------- Heal. There is nothing else to do so continue left on to Route 114.
Route 114 --------- Head down and across the bridge. Continue going down. You will reach some mountainous area. You can use the steps on the left to get on it. Head down and follow the path. At the end of the path is Meteor Waterfall. Go into it.
Meteor Waterfall ---------------- Go left across the bridge. You will see several Team Aqua and Magma Members. They will talk for a while. Remember that lift near the Flame Loophole? That's our next destination. Leave the cave the way you came in and go back to Hajitsuge Town.
Hajitsuge Town, Route 113 & 111 ------------------------------- Heal and continue on backwards to Route 113. Eventually you will reach Route 111 again. Head back to the house on this route for healing. Then continue back down into the Flame Loophole. Go through the exit on the other side. Head all the right to get to the lift again. Now the Team Aqua/Magma members are gone. Take the lift up to Chimney Mountain(0 on the map).
Chimney Mountain ---------------- You will see a Team Aqua and Team Magma blocking your path down. So we must go up. Eventually you will reach a group of Team Aqua and Magma members. None of them will battle you. Continue to the left. Now you will reach the Team Aqua/Magma members who will battle you. Just a little bit further up you will find a Team Aqua/Magma trainer beside a machine. Talk to him to start the battle. He has three Pokemon and he can be difficult as his Pokemon are at quite a high level. Use Super Potions to heal as needed. After the battle, start going back down. Don't use the lift this time. Just keep going down the path that was previously blocked. You will enter Decoboco Sandou. Keep going down and you will arrive on Route 112. Go left to find Fuen Town(A on the map).
Fuen Town --------- Heal and go to the Gym. This one is the Fire Gym. The pools of water either send you somewhere or have a trainer. In the first room, the pool on the left goes to the next area. The one on the right has a trainer. The trainer has 2 Lv22 Slugma and a Lv22 Donmeru. In the next area go into the only other pool. The pool in the top left is the exit. The pool in the top right has a trainer. The trainer has a Lv24 Kecleon. In the next area enter the pool just above you. The top left pool goes to the next area, the bottom right pool has a trainer. The trainer has a Lv23 Donmeru and Lv23 Slugma. Once again go to the pool just above you. The top right pool goes to the next area. The top left pool has a trainer in it. The trainer has a Lv24 Asanan. Go into other pool in the next area, the bottom left pool takes you to the next area the top left pool has a trainer. The Trainer has a Lv23 Slugma and a Lv23 Donmeru. Finally go into pool below you to reach the Gym Leader. The Gym Leader has 2 Lv26 Slugma and a Lv28 Kootasu. I suggest getting to Lv30 and stocking up on lots of Super Potion. The Kootasu has a really powerful Fire attack called Overheat. But it greatly decreases it's Special Attack every time she uses it. So if you can survive it the first few times, it will get easier. Also Kootasu has a lot of defense. If you are planning to use physical attacks, buy some X Attack to increase the damage you do. After you win exit the gym. You rival will stop you outside and give you the item Gogo Goggles. Now you can enter the desert!
v. Up to the Fifth Gym ++++++++++++++++++++++ Fuen Town --------- Exit the town to the right. Now we need to go back to Touka City. The one with a gym we couldn't fight in. Touka City has another Gym, so if you struggled with the Fuen Town Gym, you should take some time to level up. Head right on to Route 112. Continue right onto Route 111. Then go down to Kinsetsu City. Use the exit on the left to leave town onto Route 117. Continue left to Shidake Town. Enter Kanashida Tunnel to reach Route 116. Continue left on Route 116 to reach Kanazumi City. Exit down to reach Route 104. Continue downward into Touka Forest. Continue downward back onto Route 104. Follow Route 104 to Touka City.
Touka City ---------- As always heal. The shop in this city has changed. Stock up on Super Potion and X Defend. The next Gym uses Normal type Pokemon so X Defend will help a lot. Finally enter the gym. This Gym is in a Diamond shape. G /\ 3 3 /\ /\ 2 2 2 \/ \/ 1 1 \/ E
E- Entrance 1- Trainer 1 Lv27 Enekororo 2- Trainer 2 Lv27 Massuguma 3- Trainer 3 Lv27 Zanguusu G- Gym Leader
Follow any path you like to the Gym Leader. It's suggested that you fight all 7 trainers before the Gym Leader for the experience points and money. Next leave the Gym to heal. When you come back follow the doors to reach the Gym Leader. The Gym Leader has a Lv28 Kek-king, a Lv30 Yarukimono and a Lv31 Kek-king. The Kek-king have very high stats, but they also have a set back. Their characteristic makes them lose every second turn. Use the turn to heal or use an X Defend.
vi. Up to the Sixth Gym +++++++++++++++++++++++++ Touka City ---------- After the battle heal your Pokemon and visit the house to the left of the gym. Talk to the person inside to get HM03 Surf. Teach it to a Pokemon. Next we need to go to Kinsetsu City. Leave Touka City by the right exit to reach Route 102. Continue to the right to reach Cotoki City. Head North to Route 103 and Surf across the gap. You will come to Route 110. Head down a bit and enter the building to reach the Bike Path. Take the Bike Path all the way up. After you leave to Bike Path continue up to Kinsetsu City.
Kinsetsu City, Route 118 & 119 ------------------------------ Take this chance to heal your Pokemon. You have a long road ahead. From Kinsetsu City go East onto Route 118. You will get to a large pool of Water. Use Surf to across it and continue right. Eventually a person will stop you to talk for a moment. Afterwards continue to the right a bit and the head up to Route 119. Follow the long Route up. You will find a large patch of tall grass just continue up through it. Then go across the bridge and continue upwards. Go up the next set of tall grass. Just keep going up. Eventually you will reach a large building. The path right is blocked by Team Aqua/Magma members so go inside the building. In the top left corner of the first floor you can heal your Pokemon by pressing A on the bed. The stairs to the next floor are in the top right corner. On the far left of this floor you will fight one of the head members of Team Aqua/Magma. After her defeat, all Team Aqua/Magma members will leave. The scientists will give you a Powarun for saving them. You can heal at the bed again if you like. You have a tough battle ahead. Exit the building and continue to the right. After a bit your rival will challenge you to a battle. He only 3 Pokemon, but they are quite strong. After the battle he gives you HM02 Fly. Just ahead is the next town, Hiwamaki City(B on the map).
Hiwamaki City ------------- Heal at the Pokemon Center. If you try to enter the gym, you will find an invisible object in your way. Go to the top right house in the town. Talk to everybody there. Then leave town to the right onto Route 120.
Route 120 --------- Go all the way to the right. Then head downwards into the tall grass. After you come out of the tall grass, go left. You will come across a person standing on the bridge.
