Watch where you go; this route is filled with super-tall grass, which makes travel a chore. Or it would’ve been, if it weren’t for the narrow, wooden walkways that allow you to safely cross over the grass. That said, a sudden lapse of concentration can cause you to fall off, so be careful.

From the start, there are a few ways for you to progress through this route. You can head through the tall grass immediately to the north, take the elevated route to the left, where a trainer awaits, or use the thin bridge just before the tall grass to try and cut over the tall grass.

If you use the bridges, you can skip a lot of battles (both wild Pokemon and trainers), but you may have to battle some acrobatic clowns that get in your way. Just keep moving on the bridges and you’ll stay on them; stop for too long or move out of direction and your character will fall off.

Once you reach the house on the other side, head right, then follow the footpath all the way up and you’ll soon find the Celestial Tower in a dead end.

Just before Celestial Tower, there’s a handy resthouse to the east.
