Enter Route 202 and into the first grass you see. Professor Rowan’s assistant (Lucas if you’re playing a girl, Dawn if you’re playing a boy), will call you over and show you how to catch Pokémon. It’s helpful to lower the foe’s HP into the yellow or red before throwing the ball. The assistant will then bestow upon you 5 Pokéballs.
Pokémon found in the tall grass:
|Pokémon:||Type:||Levels found at||Morn||Day||Night|
|Shinx||lv 3, lv 4||30%||30%||30%|
|Bidoof||lv 2, lv 3 lv 4||30%||30%||30%|
|Starly||lv 2, lv 3, lv 4||30%||40%||20%|
|Kricketot||lv 3, lv 4||10%||0%||20%|
All are recommended for capture at this point in time for a large amount of type coverage. Training them early in the game is also essential, so start immediately.
