The Fen Badge

Veilstone City & Route 212
Items: Star Piece, HM02 Fly, Max Repel, Carbos, Big Root, Red Shard,
       Magmarizer, Razor Fang.

| Pokemon [Route 212 : Rains] |
------------- ---------------
| Bibarel     | Lv. 18-20     |
| Kricketune  | Lv. 18-19     |
| Roselia     | Lv. 18-20     |
| Wooper      | Lv. 18        |
------------- ---------------

You'll find Rowan's assistant waiting outside the Pokemon Gym, asking for
your help to retrieve her Pokedex from the Galactic Grunts. Head over to
the Pokemon Center and rest your Pokemon first. Also, there's a STAR PIECE
tucked in the left corner of the Galactic Building. Rendezvous with your
friend behind the Department Store and agree to help him.

After the battle, go inside the warhouse qand grab the HM02 FLY. Go all the
way back to Hearthome City, then take the south exit to Route 212.

If you visited the Pokemon Mansion earlier, then you should already have
beaten all the trainers, as well as picked up the TM11 in this portion of
the area. So make your way south and pick up the ELIXIR along the way. It
will eventually start raining. And you'll meet up with a new group of
trainers here.

After defeating Allison and Jeffrey, go southeast and cut the small tree.
Continue southwest, defeat Stefano, then grab the MAX REPEL. Go back to the
fork and head right this time. Climb the steps next to Dominique and pedal
across the narrow plank in your bicycle. Take the CARBOS Turn back and head
for the docks. You can battle with the fishermen there too.

Head east across the docks, then south onto the marsh. If you get stuck just
squirm around for a bit to get free. The BIG ROOT can be found at the
southeastern portion of the swamp. Continue east. Pick the berries to your
right and cut the small tree to your left. Pedal across the plank, head down
the steps and grab the RED SHARD.

Battle with Shaun. Proceed west, cutting through trees along the way. Defeat
Sabrina, grab the MAGMARIZER then jump down. Head right across the swamp.
Once on land, go north under the plank for a RAZOR FANG at the end. Turn
back and continue right to Pastoria City.

Pastoria City
Items: Match Up Checker, Full Heal, Red Shard x2, Yellow Shard, Poke Ball x2
       Blue Shard, Toxic Plate, Great Ball

Enter the house closest to the city entrance. Talk to the lady there to get
a berry. Next, use yout Dowsing Machine at the puddle of water south of the
city. (The one surrounded by trees.) to find a FULL HEAL. Proceed to the
Observatory located north of the city. Talk to one of the ladies at the
counter to play the Safari game for $500. You'll be given 30 Safari Balls to
capture Pokemon with. I recommend that you try this since there are several
new Pokemon that can be captured in the marsh.

Talk to the girl at the entrance of the Great Marsh to get the MATCHUP
CHECKER. You can take the tram to different areas in the marsh. You can
capture a Skorupi and Marill in Area 2. You can pick up a RED SHARD, YELLOW
3. Azurill and Quagsire Pokemon are in Area 4. There is also a POKE BALL and
RED SHARD here. You can find an ANTIDOTE in Area 5. And lastly, a Golduck
can be captured in Area 6.

When attempting to capture a Pokemon, don't waste turns throwng baits at it,
since your target will flee after several turns. Just throw Safari Balls
until you catch it.

Head for the gym when you're done. Your rival, Nolan will appear once again
to challenge you. Beat him and enter the gym.

You'll have to solve a water puzzle before you can get to Wake, who is
waiting up north. You must either raise or lower the water level to cross
the bridges. The red switch drains the water completely, the green one fills
the water halfway, and the blue fills the water to full.

 ------------ ----------------------------- ---------- 
| Leader     | Pokemon                     | Rewards  |
------------ ----------------------------- ----------
|            | Gyarados (Lv. 33)           |   --     |
| Wake       | Quagsire (Lv. 34)           |   --     |
|            | Floatzel (Lv. 37)           |   $4440  |
------------ ----------------------------- ----------
| The Gyrados can be a pain because it knows Swagger, |
| which greatly boosts your Pokemon's attack power    |
| and inflicts Confuse at the same time. I suggest    |
| using Bite repeatedly since it causes the target to |
| flinch and lose a turn. Use healing items if        |
| necessary.                                          |
|                                                     |
| Bring in a grass-type Pokemon to deal with Floatzel |
| and Quagsire. Abilities like Mega Drain and Razor   |
| Leaf can knock them out in one shot.                |

You'll receive the FEN BADGE and TM55 (Brine) from Wake.

Listen everyone who has reporters in front of the route 212 gate: I would first beat fantina after the conversation w/ Keria and your mother and talking to the girl in purple, which is her, and go past the... oh just go to veilstone city, beat maylene, take fly, and get to pastoria city. Battle trainers until you see a trainer tips sign. Behind it is an item. Go back to hearthome city using fly. Go through the down gate, and they dissapear.

about the reporters,you have to go to veilstone city,and if you've beaten the gym, you have to help lucas/dawn by getting his.hers pokedex back from 2 Galactig grunts,and then looker will appear,and will show you where you can find HM02:fly. then,you have to go to the southern gate of veilstone,and go south untill you are at verity lakefront,or something like that. if you go south to a lil' beach with 2 tubers,you have to go to the edge,and go left,there you can paas trough,and you are at Pastoria city,and when you are there,those reporters at hearthome are gone.(they have an absolutely bad timing,eh?)
