As you exit the gate you will see some Trainers ahead -- why not say hello to them and ... Wait... You are getting a phone call!  Answer it!  It is Mum!

Her call is brief because she just did it to get a GPS fix on you mate -- turn around!  There is Mum!  Whoa she is good!

Oh lovely wonderful and good Mum!  She has a prezzie for us!  Running Shoes!  Oh how did she know that was just what I wanted?!  Good old Mum!

The Trainer to the north is on the other side of a ledge so we cannot get to them -- the one to the west has some sage advice for us -- I don;t know about you but Mum saying we were all alone ans all made me rather sad... Sigh.  Ah well, it is our adventure after all!  So what do you say we hit the tall grass and maybe grab the treasure ball hidden up there in the grass?  Yeah!  Good idea!

Being able to run now means that we can actually find shaking grass -- as it appears most often when you are running past the grass and sometimes through it.  There are a few Pokemon we do not have here, so let's make a point of capturing them now, shall we?  Come see me when you have them all and are ready to move on to the north again, right?

Did you get a Potion from that treasure ball?  Yeah, me too!

Trolling for Shaking Grass

As you exit the tall grass above the Trainer there attacks!  Youngster Jimmy has a Level 7 Patrat which I am sure you made short work of, and the Trainer above him tells you how to avoid battles.  The bloke by the ledge below teaches you about ledges -- awful nice of him that.  On the road east tho is a girl Trainer who wants to battle!

Lass Mali has a Level 7 Purrloin that is not too big a challenge for you.  Besides you can use the XP and money mate, so don't feel bad about stomping that girl's kitty!

More ledges ahead force you into the tall grass -- and another Trainer Battle!

Youngster Roland has a Level 7 Lillipup, but the battle feels like taking candy from a baby...

The grass here is a good place to catch your own Purrloin tho, so do that.  Head back to town to heal and save as needed, right?

Catching the Purrloin is pretty easy, but to get an Audino you have to get Shaking Grass to spawn.  You do that by running near tall grass...  But as you cannot actually make him appear until after you get the first Gym Badge... Now is not the time :)

Head for the Town when you are ready -- but when you get to the other side of the second grass patch look to the east -- see the path around the grass here?  Remember the pair of treasure balls we saw from the scenic overlook?  Yes sir, this is where they are!  And since they contain a Potion and a Poke Ball what do you say we grab them now?  Excellent!

Just as we approach the end of the route Bianca shows up -- and she wants to Battle!

It's OK though, her team is Level 6-7 so no hoohoo here mate.  She pays off decent XP and another $700 so it is all good.  After the battle the entrance to Striation City is just ahead...
