12: Meteor Falls

On the ledge to the west is a Treasure Ball you can break a rock to reach that contains a Protein you may want to grab.  As you work your way around the ledges you will arrive at the entrance to the tunnel to Meteor Falls -- which is where Magma took the Professor.



The entrance to Meteor Falls

-- Meteor Falls --

A large cave in the northwest part of Hoenn, Meteor Falls is at once mysterious and enchanting.  When you get inside the foreboding feeling is emphasized by dark music and a dank view.

I don't know about you but I was expecting there to be more to this then just walking inside and bang!  There is Team Magma!  I mean I thought we would at least have to battle our way through a few rooms, maybe catch a Pokemon, and then encounter Magma and their nefarious plot, but no, there they are plain as day!

As soon as we appear the Magma blokes get all chest-bumpy mad, and we tell them which way up is, and you know where this is going, right?  And just then who should show up but Team Aqua!  Could this get any worse?  Why, yes.  Yes it can!

Just when it looks like we are going to mix it up, Magma grabs the meteorite and bolts -- then the Aqua leader tells us that he misjudged us -- well, bit of a left-handed compliment that, but still, coming from a nutter that wants to flood the earth I guess you just have to take what you can get, right?

The Professor tells us what happened to him -- and it is clear that we need to get to Mr. Chimney right away to stop Magma from unleashing a deadly effect that will magnify the sun's rays a gazillion times, killing us all!

OK, our fastest way to Mt. Chimney is actually through the caves here and out the other side rather than retrace our way back to Fallarbor.  The route down is quick, sure, we just have to jump a bunch of ledges, and out the other side is Route 115 -- which we never visited when we were in Rustboro! 

Before you head off to Mr. Briney's Cottage you will remember that he is in Slateport waiting for you!  He cannot be in two places at once, so you are not going to be taking the boat to Slateport this time -- but hey, we don't have to!  Remember?  We opened the cave!  We can conveniently walk to Mauville from here!  Poit!

Head through the cave, pausing just long enough to capture a Solrock, and out on to Route 115.


-- Route 115 --

Route 115 is a rural path connecting Meteor Falls to Rustboro, and providing access to the ocean for Fisherman and Trainers based out of Rustboro.

As you can see there are a few Pokemon here that we could add to our Dex, so get at it!  When you are done pop down to Rustboro and head east to the cave entrance, then through the cave to Verdanturf Town, hit the Poke Center to heal, save, and swap out your team for the active A-Team that you benched to prevent it from over-leveling.  Hopefully you did not level any of them beyond 28, right?  The reason we are grabbing them now is because there are some Level 24's we will be facing, and immediately after taking care of the next challenge we will be heading for our next Gym Battle...

Be sure to hit the Mart to replace any kit you used up, and when you are ready, head for Mt. Chimney!
