You've liberated Saffron City from Team Rocket's mad scheme, and you could probably use a bit of a holiday. We hear the fishing is good down south of Lavender Town, so grab your Old Rod and get set to drown a few worms.

You ought to pack the Poké Flute, too. You won't be able to avoid Pokémon duels completely on this trip, but things will be far less hectic. Route 13 is more like a maze than a highway, but it is a pleasant place to walk and enjoy the great outdoors.

Route 12[edit]

Route 12.

Sleeping Beauty[edit]

You'll need to use your Poké Flute to wake the Snorlax blocking the path here. But stop at that first building and get TM 27 first. It contains Return (the stronger the friendship, the more powerful it is). The Poké Flute has the power to wake a sleeping Pokémon, in or out of battle.

Pipe a sweet tune to rouse this Snorlax from its rather inconvenient resting place. It won't be very happy about the wake-up call, but when it attacks, you can try to capture it. This is the only other Snorlax in the game, so if you didn't catch the one in Route 16, here's another opportunity. With the way clear, continue south to Route 13. After the Snorlax, get the Super Rod in the 2nd building.

New Pokémon[edit]

#132 Ditto #98 Krabby
Pokemon 132Ditto.png
Ditto may have the ability to Transform into any Pokémon it faces, but with such weak stats, it's almost not worth the catch. However, Ditto does have one factor that makes it worth it. Because of its Ditto egg group, it can breed with any egg group except for its own and the No Egg egg group. Find one with some good IVs, and you'll have an excellent breeding Pokémon on your hands.
Pokemon 098Krabby.png
Krabby is a fairly good Water Pokémon, and you can have fun beating things instantly (30% of the time) with his Guillotine technique. But Krabby's real selling point is that he can learn the Cut, Surf, and Strength HM's, allowing you to have them all without using more than one slot on your bench.
#116 Horsea #72 Tentacool
Pokemon 116Horsea.png
Horsea's evolved form Seadra is a solid fighter, and learns a good variety of Water-type attacks. But you probably won't want more than one or two Water-types on your bench, and there's a variety of better options. Cloyster, Vaporeon, Starmie and Lapras top the list.
Pokemon 072Tentacool.png
Tentacool mixes Water with Poison types, and learns a variety of good attacks in both (and has a high enough special to make good use of them). The Built-in Poison attack Acid does damage while lowering defense, which is nice, but Poison types still aren't stellar.

Items[edit]

  • Leftovers: Use Itemfinder on top of the spot where Snorlax was sleeping
  • TM 48 Skill Swap: Small island at the top of Route 12 (requires Surf)
  • Super Rod: Given by Fishing Guru within house at south of Snorlax
  • Iron: After using Cut on a plant south of Fishing Guru's house and beating the trainer
  • PP UP (hidden): Hole in the fence at the bottom of Route 13
