Pokemon to Find/Acquire Choose one of three Pokemon from the Professor's suitcase.
As you gain control after selecting your character, naming him or her, et cetera, you'll find your character in his bedroom. Your friend will dart upstairs to greet you, and then quickly leave you to your own devices. Briefly explore your room; you'll find some interesting stuff (including a Wii!). But you'll ultimately need to head downstairs to continue the story. When you get down there, your mom will approach you and tell you that your friend left already (we named ours "Nolan"). After briefly talking to her, head out of your house in search of Nolan. Oh, and follow her advice closely... stay out of the tall grass until you get your own Pokemon (which is a short time away). Once outside, explore your little town called Twinleaf Town. The house to the left of your own has a couple of people to talk to. There are also people in the house above yours and scattered throughout the town. Ultimately, you'll want to head to your friend's house, which is located diagonally up and left from your house. Once you approach it, your friend will come out, then run back inside. Pursue him up the stairs in his own house (talking to his mom and further exploring his house if you'd like... he has a Wii, too!) and he'll thereafter run back outside and north out of town. Give chase. When you do, you'll run into him again. He'll try to convince you to run rightward into the grass without a Pokemon, which is dangerous indeed! And just about when the two are about to run into the grass, Professor Rowan shows up and stops them. He talks to the characters and eventually agrees to give them each a Pokemon of their own (the Professor's assistant, Dawn, will also show up at this time). Choose which Pokemon you want. Your choices will be Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup. We grabbed Turtwig, but any choice is fine. It'll all even out in the end. After you choose your Pokemon, the Professor and Dawn will take their leave, leaving you and your friend on your own. Your Rival will immediately challenge you to a battle using the Pokemon he chose. He and his Pokemon will go easy on you in this battle (since you theoretically own Pokemon of the same level and strength, this is to ensure you don't lose). Expect an easy victory, and enough experience for your new Pokemon to reach level six (and then some). After this, head back to your house, where your mom will talk to you and send you to Sandgem Town to find the Professor and explain why you stole his Pokemon! But before she sends you on your way, she'll give you the extremely useful Running Shoes, which will allow you, at will, to run around, making your movements that much quicker.

Head northward out of town to Route 201. Before heading eastward to Sandgem Town, consider going to the left instead. When you do, you'll find yourself at Verity Lakefront, where your friend will have an epiphany. What if you two try to catch the Legendary Pokemon living at nearby Lake Verity? Head westward and then northward to reach the lake, where you'll find a mysterious man named Cyrus. After a brief scene, he'll leave. But catching the Pokemon here will have to wait, because neither of you have Poke Balls, a necessary component in catching any Pokemon in the wild. The two instead resolve to head eastward to Professor Rowan's laboratory in Sandgem Town. You're now traveling alone. Leave Verity Lake and travel eastward back through Verity Lakefront to Route 201. Then, proceed eastward through the grass, bearing northward and then eastward to reach Sandgem Town. Be sure to talk to all three people you meet en route for helpful tips. Be especially sure to speak to the man at the north end of the big patch of grass, who will hand over a Potionfor your inventory at the end of your conversation with him. When you reach Sandgem Town, the Professor's assistant, Dawn, will intercept you and walk you to the Professor's lab. When you reach the lab, your Rival will run out of the front door and head out on his way. Once inside, your character and Professor Rowan will converse about your new adventure. After your discussion, he'll hand over TM27, at which point you can then head back outside of the lab. Dawn will bring you around town to introduce you to a few essential buildings. When you regain control, be sure to visit both buildings. Familiarize yourself with healing your Pokemon at the Pokemon Center, and buy some Poke Balls (and anything else you feel you might want, but definitely Poke Balls) at the Pokemon Mart. You should also enter all other buildings and speak to everyone in the town both inside and out. Also, if you head to the south end of Sandgem Town, you'll encounter Sandgem Beach (from Route 219), where an Antidote can be found at waters' edge. At Dawn's bidding, you should now head back to your hometown (Twinleaf Town) and talk to your mother to let her know about your new bidding as a Pokemon master-in-training (find her north of Sandgem Town, on Route 202). Since you'll have to go back along Route 201 in order to do this, you'll have another shot at the wild Bidoofs, Kricketots and Starlys in the area. Completionists will want to make sure to catch each to add their full information to the Pokedex. This will be a general rule throughout this walkthrough that won't always be mentioned. In each new area, be sure to consult the "Pokemon to Find/Acquire" list to see which Pokemon are in the area so you know what you'll need to encounter. Once you get back to your house in

Twinleaf Town, talk to your mother. Your friend's mother will come in automatically and hand off the Parcelfor you to give to your friend if you encounter him (and naturally you will). You'll also get a Journal from your mom. Head back along Route 201 to Sandgem Town, and then go northward again to Route 202. Head left at the first opportunity you get and you'll run into the Professor's assistant Dawn yet again. This time, she'll teach you how to catch your own Pokemon; if you've never played a Pokemon game before, be sure to pay attention! The best part of your encounter with Dawn isn't the knowledge she bestows upon you however. Rather, it's that she hands you five Poke Balls. Sweet!

Oreburgh City, excitingly enough, is the location of the game's very first badge. If you've never played a Pokemon game before, the eight badges in the game will prove your worth to other trainers around the world! They'll also allow you to successfully control higher-level Pokemon. You'll get your first badge soon enough, but first we've got to take care of some other business. Enter the city and head rightward. A kid will intercept you here and bring you to the gym in town, where the Gym Leader (and your badge) are located. Don't get too excited though! We can't enter the gym yet, though you will run into your friend here. The Gym Leader, Roark, has gone to the nearby mine to the south of town. That's our ultimate destination, but first let's explore the town and find what we can. There are many points of interest! Head back to the western entrance into the city and take the topmost road eastward. There will be buildings to the north of you. In the first building you encounter, head to the second floor and talk to the child up there. He'll hand over a valuable Dusk Ball. In the next house to your right, there are two people you should seek out. The woman on the first floor will offer to trade you an Abra for a Machop. This is a great offer, because Abras up to this point have no doubt run from battle on you (they can only use Teleport at low levels, after all). Machops can be found on Route 207 at the north end of town. Catch one and give it to the woman; her Abra will be yours in return. Then, you can simply head back to Route 207 and catch another one for your own inventory. Sadly, the Abra comes with a name. We don't know about you guys, but we prefer our Pokemon nameless, thank you! The second person of interest in that house is on the second floor. A man here will want to see a Geodude. Talk to him with one in your six handy Pokemon, and he'll be very impressed, giving you a Heal Ball in return for inspiring him. At the far east end of town, you will find two more buildings; a museum in the northeast corner and another house right below it. Ignore the

museum for now unless you're curious to see it (we can't do anything there yet) and enter the house below it. The boy on the second floor within this building will hand over another valuable item -- aGreat Ball. After doing all of this, save your game, heal your Pokemon and go south. You'll be brought directly to the Oreburgh Mine's entrance.

Before heading into the mine, make sure you've spoken to everyone around town and outside of the mine itself. Also, be sure to explore the area on the left in front of the mine's entrance, since you can find two items sitting close to one another, a Yellow Shard and a Dire Hit. Speak to everyone outside of the mine, as well -- one of them will reward you with a Super Potion. Oh, and did you visit the downstairs portion of the town's Pokemon Center? You didn't have access to the downstairs area in previous Pokemon Centers you encountered, but now you can head on down. When you do, you'll be automatically intercepted by a nice woman who will introduce you further to your surroundings and hand off a Pal Pad. The mine is made up of two rooms, one on top of the other. Look directly to your right as you enter the mine to find aPoke Ball. You can also talk to a couple of people to your left before going down the stairs ahead of you and into the next room. There will be familiar cave enemies here, like Zubats and Geodudes, but you'll also find Onix in the wild here for the very first time. They are a pain to catch, but weaken them and be persistent and one will no doubt be yours. Head around this rectangular room to your right, then southward, and then westward (you can't go the other way, and you'll need to backtrack when you want to return to the surface). Two trainers will be ready to fight you as you take this short journey. Worker Mason will throw his level nine Geodude at you, while Worker Colin will have two Pokemon -- a Geodude and a Machop. You'll also find a couple of items by further exploring this area, a Potion and an Escape Rope. The most important development while in the mines, however, is finding the aforementioned gym leader. When you find him, he'll discuss Rock Smash with you, the earlier-found TM06. Then he'll head back to his gym. Follow him, making sure to enter only with a party of Pokemon that can withstand rock-type Pokemon. If you chose Turtwig or Piplup in the beginning of the game, you'll be in especially good shape! The gym is easy enough to find your way through. The man at the entrance will inform you of the leader's weaknesses, and then you'll be thrown into the fray. Trainer Jonathan is packing a level eleven Geodude, while Youngster Darius is packing two Pokemon of his own -- Geodude and Onix, both at level nine. Finally, you'll come to the crux of the mission; fighting the powerful Roark and getting the Coal Badge. Roark has three high level Pokemon. Geodude and Onix are both at level twelve, while Cranidos is at level fourteen. All are weak to the traditional rock

weaknesses -- try grass attacks or water attacks to do the most damage. His first two Pokemon, the Geodude and Onix, can theoretically be killed with one water or grass-type strike if your attacking Pokemon is in the mid-teens as far as level is concerned. If you don't have any Pokemon of the water or grass type, then you'll need to really grind this battle out with some high level Pokemon of your own! But even the weakest water and grass Pokemon will easily survive this battle. Just be aware of his Cranidos, which will likely get the first move and can do devastating damage, throwing a wrench in an otherwise easy battle. When you've defeated Roark, you'll be rewarded with the Coal Badge, the first of eight badges you'll earn during your travels through Sinnoh. This will allow you to use HM06. You'll also be rewarded with TM76, so be sure to teach it to one of your rock-type Pokemon. Now that we're done in the Oreburgh area, you'll want to backtrack towards Jubilife City. Doing so will allow you to begin the quest for our second badge! But since you have the skill Rock Smash and can now use it with the Coal Badge in your inventory, spend some time in Oreburgh Gate en route to Jubilife City. Head to the north of the first room and smash through the boulders (we taught our Onix the skill, but you can teach any one of your Pokemon the skill as long as it's applicable to them). On the basement floor, which you can access via some stairs beyond the first breakable boulders, items can be found, as well as an all-new Pokemon for you to catch -- Psyduck. You can't explore the entirety of this bottom floor without a Bicycle, which we'll get later... but in the meantime, grab the two items you can get right now, TM70 and a Big Pearl.
