Route #33 is extremely short, but there is one Trainer along the way who will want to battle. When you beat the Trainer, he will offer to give you his phone number. Take it to see what he has to tell you later on. Check the tree for a Poisoncure Berry — it will come in handy.

Catch a Spearow
If you have time to kill, this area's thin strip of grass is another opportunity to catch a Spearow if you didn't nab one in the bottom part of Route 46. This is through the building on the north side of the path right outside of New Bark Town. Crystal players can also catch one early by visiting Route 46). Spearow's Peck ability will come in handy against the next gym. You'll have plenty of other chances.
