Points of Interest

  • Near the middle of the route, where the sandbars begin, a treasure hunter will hand out a random item daily.
  • West of the treasure hunter, an old man inside a house will teach a starter Pokemon a powerful move: Frenzy Plant, Hydro Cannon or Blast Burn.


The left screen is what shows when you’re standing on an item.

Let’s get this straight: this route is pretty dang long, so make sure you’re sitting comfortably. If you’ve been following our guide, you can enter Route 13 by heading north from Undella Town. Start by running up through the sand, then head left up the stairs to the grassy path.

Past the signpost, there’s a Socialite who’s staring for a battle. You can either accept her challenge or just sidestep through the grass.

Trainer Battle: Socialite

Pokemon Level Type
"Kricketot" IconKricketot 64 Bug
"Chimecho" IconChimecho 64 Psychic

Not far from her is a Gentleman of high-standing (and high Level Pokemon).

Trainer Battle: Gentleman

Pokemon Level Type
"Farfetch'd" IconFarfetch’d 64 Normal/Flying
"Granbull" IconGranbull 64 Normal

Then past him are… some kids!?

Double Battle: Twins

"Plusle" IconPlusle 64 Electric
"Minun" IconMinun 64 Electric

Psychic’s a blast. Remember the old days, ripping through opponents with Mewtwo?

Before long you’ll find stairs leading back down to the sand. Heading south-west, up the large flight of stairs will lead you to a boulder, which you can shove aside with Strength, and TM29 Psychic beyond. Following the sand north meanwhile will take you to the beach.

The first person you’ll encounter here is a Fisherman, who’s totally up for a battle.

Trainer Battle: Fisherman

"Kingler" IconKingler 63 Water

After you’ve sacked him, head a little north to find a Parasol Girl standing below some sunbeds. Curiously she doesn’t want a fight, so let’s use her as a reference point. From here, you can choose to take a variety of routes.

The most uneventful one is following the beach line south-east, while on land. At the very end, you can battle a Black Belt and hop over the ledge south to return to the southern gatehouse. Handy if you need healing.

Trainer Battle: Black Belt

Pokemon Level Type
"Sawk" IconSawk 65 Fighting
"Hitmonlee" IconHitmonlee 65 Fighting

The next route is to Surf into the water opposite the Parasol Lady and head towards the large island to her east. Navigate to the east side of the island, then Surf back into the water to find another Fisherman hungry for a battle.
