Route 19

Route 19


She'll then tell you some stuff and that you should go to Floccesy Town to the east. You can, of course, find that on your Town Map, but what you'll want to do beforehand is get catching some Pokemon!After a little bit of talking, Bianca will show you how to catch Pokemon. She'll demonstrate using her Lillipup to catch a Purrloin. As always, you should weaken it down to as low of HP as possible before tossing a Poke Ball at it. Pay attention to the bottom screen to see how to navigate to get to the Poke Ball.

Route 19
Wild Pokemon Types Level(s) Rarity
Patrat Patrat Normal Lv. 2 ~ 4 50%
Purrloin Purrloin Dark Lv. 2 ~ 4 50%

Neither Patrat nor Purrloin are that great, but if you had to pick one of the two to use, pick Patrat. Its Tackle is much stronger than Purrloin's Scratch, plus it will pick up better moves faster. You'll be able to catch a much better variety soon, though, so don't invest too much time into training up either of these two unless you plan on using them for a long time to come.

About halfway through the route is a Potion sitting in the grass. Go on and pick it up so you have some extra healing power. The Youngster nearby will ask if you're familiar with ledges and will jump off if you answer no.

Try to get your starter Pokemon up to level 7 before leaving the route. Once it is at level 7, it will learn a new attack: Snivy gets Vine Whip, Tepig gets Ember, and Oshawott gets Water Gun. Ember will probably do about the same as Tackle for Tepig, but Vine Whip and Water Gun are both a little stronger for Snivy and Oshawott respectively.

After passing by a sign, you'll be stopped by a mysterious voice. It's Alder! In his usual fashion, he jumps down a gigantic cliff. He sizes you up and examines your Pokemon, but that's about it before he walks off towards Floccesy Town. You should do the same!
