Fly to Anistar City and head to the southeast exit. On your way, you'll receive a holo clip from Prof. Sycamore. Head to the gate and go past the two construction workers that won't let you go past because of the Durant infestation. There's a hidden Pokeball in the bushes beside the Route 18 sign.

Head to the south and jump over the ledge to get a Hyper Potion. You can also fight a trainer to the right of that ledge.

Youngster Jayden (Prize Money: p1,152)
  • LV48 Scolipede (Bug/Poison)
  • LV48 Pinsir (Bug)

Continue to the right and you'll find a thorny tree before the bridge. Follow the path to find a Wacan Berry. Glide on the grind bar to reach the PP Up. Jump over the ledge then continue south.

In the lower path, fight another trainer past the flower field. There's also a hidden Honey in the open space in the northeast corner of the first flower patch.

Lass Sara (Prize Money: p1,152)
  • LV48 Granbull (Fairy)
  • LV48 Dedenne (Electric/Fairy)

If you continue to the south, you'll reach Couriway Town. However, let's just explore the area a bit. Rock smash the cracked boulders to the east then follow the tracks to the north. One of the boulders in the intersecting tracks has a hidden Super Potion. In the northeast corner you'll find a X-Defense. You can also battle the roving black belter here.

Black Belt Yanis (Prize Money: p2,400)
  • LV49 Sawk (Fighting)
  • LV50 Pangoro (Dark/Fighting)

Enter the cave to the north and pick up the Dragon Scale in the middle of the room. There's also a hidden Normal Gem in a rock in the northernmost side of the chamber.

Leave the chamber and backtrack to the stairs near the bridge. Go upstairs and there's a trainer waiting for your there. On the bridge you'll find another walking trainer.

Hiker Orestes (Prize Money: p2,800)
  • LV50 Stunfisk (Electric/Ground)

Battle Girl Justine (Prize Money: p2,496)
  • LV52 Mienshao (fighting)

This Pokemon will use Bounce quite often. It will be annoying if its speed is practically higher than you since you won't be able to hit it after it springs up. Your only option is to bring out a faster Pokemon or use moves like Thunder that can hit enemies no matter how high they are.

There's a house after the bridge that has a trainer that can put you through an Inverse Battle. This type of matchup will render the known Super-effective moves to be non-effective and vise versa.

Psychic Inver (Prize Money: p2,496)
His line up changes for every battle. He'll have three Pokemon, all at Lv55. If you defeat him, he'll give you a berry. This is a daily event so you'll have to return tomorrow to challenge him again.

Search the hidden Ether on the left side of the house after leaving. Don't enter the cave yet to the right; follow the tracks south first to engage a Sky Trainer to a battle.

Sky Trainer Jeremy (Prize Money: p5,000)
  • LV46 Ninjask (Bug/Flying)
  • LV47 Drifblim (Ghost/Flying)
  • LV50 Flygon (Ground/ Dragon)

Head to the east of the tracks to find a Max Ether. Enter the cave opening there and get TM31 Brick Break. Now backtrack and enter the cave nearest to the house.
