Hearthome City

Enter the Pokemon Fan Club located next to the Poke Mart. Talk to the Fan Club chairman and he'll give you the POFFIN CASE. You need it in order to cook poffins in the Poffin House. Proceed to to the club's second floor. Speak to the girl there to get the SHELL BELL. Go back outside. Make your way to the southeast-most corner of the city, and talk to the guy standing next to the sign post. He'll offer to give you a POKEMON EGG. (You must have at least one free slot in your Pokemon inventory in order to get it.)

This particular egg will hatch into a Happiny once you've taken 10,420 steps.

Next up is the Pokemon Contest Hall, the largest building at the northmost part of the city. Mom will give you a dress. Speak to the man at standing in front of the center counter to receive a MILD POFFIN. You may participate in practice sessions by registering at the right counter. The Pokemon Contest is divided into 3 categories -- Visual, Dance and Acting. Register at the center counter to participate in the real thing. For better results be sure to pick sub-categories that best suits your chosen Pokemon.

After the contest, go back outside and try to leave the city. You'll meet up with Damion again, and he'll challenge you to a battle. He will have a different set of Pokemon, depending on which Pokemon you picked from the briefcase very early in the game. Take the southeast exit out to Route 209.

Amity Square

This area is located behind the Pokemon Gym in Hearthome City. You can stroll with any cute Pokemon here You'll find a TM45 ATTRACT northeast of the area. There is a TM43 SECRET POWER at the southern sector. A SPOOKY PLATE can be found at the northeast part of the upper level. Check inside the left stone structure for an AMULET COIN.

Pokemon Mansion and the Trophy Garden

Note : You may also check out Route 212. (Its just next to the exit leading to Route 208.) This area is completely optional.

Continue south and you'll find a small tree that can be cut down at the left side. Get a TM11 SUNNY DAY behind it. Make your way east, then north into the Pokemon Mansion.

Pokemon Mansion

The leftmost room at the west corridor has a GREAT BALL. The maid in the next room will give you a SOOTH BELL. The first room at the east corridor has a TM87 SWAGGER. Go back to the main hall and proceed north into the Trophy Garden. You can catch a Roselia, Pichu and Pikachu there.

------------ -------------------------------------- ----------

Go north at the starting point for a HONEY. Continue onwards and speak to the fisherman by the dock. Agree with him when asked to receive the GOOD ROD. You can fish for a pretty high level Goldeen Pokemon in the water if you like. Proceed northwest across the dock to pick some berries.

Battle with the twins as well as Danielle along the way. Head south from Danielle's position, and go around to the top for an X ACCURACY. To the right of Jennifer's position is a crumbling tower. You can insert the ODD KEYSTONE there. After defeating Shelley, go down for the TM47 STEEL WING.

Defeat Ty and Sue. You can either proceed north to Solaceon Town or enter the Lost Tower from here. I recommend going to the tower, but you might wnd to rest your Pokemon at the town first.
