Route 16 is an access road for Lumiose City and Dendemille Town. The path we will take will be the one from Dendemille Town. Bring a Pokémon with Strength and Cut. If you skipped Lost Hotel, use strength to push the boulder down and enter the ruins to the left. Head to the second floor and use the dowsing machine to find a Max Revive in the upper left corner of the building. The stairs to the basement leads to the second part of the Lost Hotel. Back in the main road, you should see a Sky Trainer.

  • LV38 Swellow (Normal/Flying)

Follow the main path until you see tall grass to the left. Enter it and cut the thorny tree. Head to the area near the ruins in the upper right corner to obtain a Rare Candy

Head back to the main path until you will come across two skaters.

Enter the tall grass directly to your right. At the end is a Max Potion hidden under the pile of leaves. Return to the main path and head left this time. Another Pokémon Ranger will ambush you at the southwest corner of the area.

Push the boulder out of the way and pick up the Fist Plate up stairs. Check the rock at the lower right for a Rare Candy.

Return again to the main path and enter the shack. The fisherman in front will give you a Super Rod while the one at the back will give you Dive Balls if you beat his fishing record.

At the back of the shack is a fishing area, challenge the trainers if you wish.
