Route #35 leads to the National Park. If you Cut the tree on the upper right, you'll gain access to Route #36. The trainers here have lots of different Pokémon, so you'd better have lots of different Pokémon, too.

Route 35

Prepare for a Yanma swarm[edit]

Route #35 is the sole habitat of the Yanma Pokémon. Catching one now is tough, since they only appear in significant numbers when they swarm (Nidoran also appear during Yanma swarms in Crystal). Trade phone numbers with Arnie, and he'll give you a ring when that happens. Then continue on to TM 04 (Rollout).

Another Skittish Guard[edit]

Like the guard back in Route #34, the guard outside of the National Park gatehouse will attack anyone who passes by at night. Once again, it seems clear that Growlithe are the Pokémon of choice for law enforcement personnel.

Special delivery[edit]

Talk to the guard in the building between Goldenrod City and this Route. He will ask you to carry a Pokémon that's holding mail to his friend on Route #31 just outside of Violet City. The friend will reward you for your efforts. After you finish the errand, come back to the guard house and the guard will give you HP Up. (However, if you'd like to keep that Pokémon, catch any wild Pokémon and transfer the mail from the Pokémon that he gave you, to the Pokémon that you caught. The guard's friend will accept it as long as the mail is present.)

The Mystery of the Mysteryberry[edit]

You won't be able to reach the Mysteryberry to the left of the pond just yet, but once you can use Surf ouside of battle, Surf over the water to pick up a Mysteryberry.

Route #35 Headbutt encounters - same as Route #34

#32 Nidoran♂ #29 Nidoran♀
Pokemon 032Nidoran♂.png
Male Nidoran get powerful early attacks (like Horn Attack at level 8), but not much later in the game. So your best bet is to evolve it into a Nidorino at level 16, then use a Moon Stone to evolve it again before level 23 (when Nidoking learns Thrash).
Pokemon 029Nidoran♀.png
Like Males, Nidoran females should probably be evolved into Nidoqueen as early as possible. And no, the rumor that you can breed a Nidoking and Nidoqueen to make a super-powerful Pokémon is not true.
#193 Yanma #58 Growlithe
Pokemon 193Yanma.png
Yanma is one of those Pokémon that you get in order to have, not to use. It has mediocre stats, weak attack moves, and a combination of types (Bug and Flying) that hurts more than it helps.
Pokemon 058Growlithe.png
Growlithe's evolved form, Arcanine, is one of the best Fire Pokémon in the game(some people prefer Charizard). With a third Fire attack (Flame Wheel) and the ability to learn Fire Blast from a TM, it's better than ever.
