The Trip to Ecruteak City

Apricorn Jackpot

Head back to Route 36 where the path was blocked and south and west to where you came from on Route 36.  North of here is an entrance to the National Park and a trainer you can fight.  Head up here first so that you can grab the Blue Apricorn from the tree here, then backtrack to where the path was blocked and head north then west, continuing west where the path branches to the north.  Ahead of you is a treasure ball with a Hyper Potion for you to grab.

Head north once you have the Hyper Potion, and you will hit Route 37!

Route 37 Beasties List

-- Exeggcute #105 (Any) Headbutt
-- Growlithe #129 (Any) Normal
-- Hoothoot #015 (Any) Headbutt
-- Hoothoot #015 (Night) Normal
-- Pidgey #010 (Morn/Day) Normal
-- Pidgeotto #011 (Day) Normal
-- Pineco #093 (Any) Headbutt
-- Spinarak #032 (Any) Headbutt
-- Spinarak #032 (Night) Normal
-- Stantler #131 (Any) Normal

If you have yet to add a Fire-Type Pokemon to your party, now is the time to do it!  Spend the time to grab a Growlithe as you are going to need a Fire-Type later.  On the right side of the path past the tall grass are three Apricorn trees you will want to gather from, and this is also a good place for you to level your team if you need to.  Remember you are headed for another Gym Fight, and you will want to be ready for that!  Everything at Level 22 should be fine!

If you plan to catch a Stantler or a Growlithe be sure to bring PLENTY of balls!  Stantler can be really hard to catch, even if you take it down to a sliver of health -- expect to gi through a dozen or more balls regardless of type.  For Growlithe, well, he has Roar, so you will be putting him to sleep and throwing a ball -- and maybe not catching him.  Bring lots of balls!

Once you have done all that you want to do here, head north to the gate and pass through into Ecruteak City!

You're better off not catching Growlithe, instead get Magmar Burnt Tower basement it learns better attacks.
