Ambrette Town

Last Updated:
In this town:
  • Pokemon Center
  • Ambrette Aquarium
  • Fossil Lab
  • Hotel Ambrette

Before heading downstairs, Calem or Serena will talk to you and inform you to visit the Fossil Lab to know more about the fossils. Go downstairs and follow the narrow path beside the pokemon center. This will lead you to a Heart Scale.

Backtrack and talk to the lady outside the aquarium and pokemon center to get TM94 Rock Smash. This move will allow you to break down cracked rocks scattered anywhere. Cracked rocks randomly contain items, fossils or even uncommon wild pokemon that can only be encountered by breaking the rocks where they hide.

Enter the aquarium and go downstairs to the left. Talk to the fisherman in front of the magikarp statue to get an Old Rod. If you exit through the aquarium, you’ll be in the continuation of Route 8. We don’t need to go there for now so exit the aquarium back into town proper.

Walk a bit to the south of the aquarium and talk to the guy in a leather jacket. He’ll offer to trade his Dive Ball for a Poke Ball. He will also mention that you can trade again the next day. Enter the house across the Fossil Lab and talk to the woman there. This is a daily event where she'll ask you to show her a Pokemon with a speed above the value she requires. You don't have to show her the actual pokemon itself - as long as a Pokemon in your party exceeds / meets her expectations, she'll be satisfied. You'll obtain a Wing item. This is a consumable item that raises your Pokemon's EV point. To know the different Wings that you can get from her and their effects, please refer to this link.

Enter the Fossil Lab next. Continue to the right side of the room. Your neighbor will join up with you and talk with the researchers. Your next destination will be Glittering Cave.

From the Fossil Lab, go downstairs to the south to find Hotel Ambrette. If you sit on the bench, your camera will give you a different view, revealing an item on the beach below. There's also a hidden X-Attack in front of the hotel, in the southwest corner, near the edge of the cliff.

Enter the hotel and talk to the woman to the right side of the first floor. You’ll receive TM96 Nature Power from her. Head to the second and depending on the day, you may find a lady with an orange cap in the second that will give the first pokemon in your party a ribbon. It seems that she’s also changing hotels everyday but it seems that she’ll always have a reservation in the second room - similar to Mr. Bonding who you can find in the third room. Proceed to the last room to the right to find Mr. Bonding. You’ll get the Sp. Def Power from him.

Enter the transition building to the right of the Fossil Lab and talk to the woman near the chairs to get a Rocky Helmet. Continue east to exit to Route 9.

(After exploring the Glittering Cave and getting the fossil of your choice from the researcher)

Head to the Fossil Lab and talk to the researcher in the counter to restore the fossil he gave you earlier. Once done, you need to head to the next town to challenge the gym leader. Enter the Ambrette Aquarium and go downstairs. Use the exit there to reach the second part of Route 8.
