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.

Route 33

Trade numbers with the Dark Cave swarm watcher[edit]

There's only one thing to do in this area: Beat Anthony and trade numbers so he can call you when the Dunsparce in the Dark Cave are swarming. If you need to heal first, the town's right ahead.

Catch a Spearow[edit]

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.

#21 Spearow
Pokemon 021Spearow.png
Spearow hasn't changed much since Red/Blue/Yellow. It's still a fairly useful Pokémon in the early game, but is lacking in powerful techniques later on. Evolved form Fearow is still one of the fastest Pokémon and has solid Attack stats.
