This route has a lot of grass and a small water area, plus there are 10 trainers that are ready to challenge you. In addition, the building that separates this area from Route 12 contains Professor Oak's Aide who will give you an Itemfinder as long as you have caught 30 different Pokemon in your Pokedex. Note that evolving a Pokemon will count towards this number.
Drowzee is a Psychic-type Pokémon, which evolves into Hypno. Hypno finds itself outclassed by Alakazam in sheer power, however, Hypno has higher attack and defense stats. Consider using a Drowzee if you want a more durable Psychic-type Pokemon, or are unable to evolve Kadabra through trading, as its combo of Hypnosis and Dream Eater can be very powerful when used wisely.
The building at the end of this path offers the opportunity to trade the first evolution of the version of Nidoran common to your game, so if you skipped the chance to acquire on Route 5's underground path, you can do it here as well.
