Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire/Lavaridge Town
This page is a stub. Help us , and you get a cookie.
In Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, Lavaridge Town is where you can win the fourth Badge. The town is in a volcanic region and is famous for saunas that contain spring water. A woman near the spring will give you an Egg that hatches later into a Wynaut after carrying it in your party for 5355 steps.
Enter the hot spring through the northwestern door inside the Pokémon Center. Use your Itemfinder as you walk in the water. You'll find an Ice Heal.
 Herb Shop
This shop is to the east of the Gym. Here's what is offered:
Don't buy too many of them, because if you keep feeding your Pokémon bitter items, its love for you will wane (unless you're getting TM21 Frustration). Talk to everyone in the shop. You will get a Charcoal, a hold item, that raises the power of Fire-type moves.
 Pokémon Gym #4
- Gym Leader: Flannery
- Badge: Heat Badge
You have to go through a series of water-holes to reach Flannery.
This Gym's specialty is Fire Pokémon. So if you have one Water Pokémon, there will be no need to touch another. And if there is, then the battle is fun. Torkoal is tough to beat; so if you caught a Koffing in the Fiery Path, use its Self-Destruct move to end this fight. Don't prolong the fight or else Torkoal will resort to attacks like Overheat and Attract both of which cause a pain in the head. A female water, ground, or rock-type pokemon is the best choice against Flannery's Torkoal, since attract will not work on female pokemon.
