The journey continues! You've successfully wandered through Santalune Forest, and now you're on your way to the city of the same name. How many pokemon have you caught? Well, here's a chance to grab some more, just in case you're aching for more action.

Route 3 - Ouvert Way

- After leaving Santalune you'll come upon this small route. North of where you come out you'll hit a trainer battle.

Preschooler Oliver

Caterpie, level 2

Azurill, level 4

Reward: $64

Almost a shame to pound this kid so thoroughly. Nevertheless, he's a pushover.

- And past him, another trainer.

Preschooler Ella

Pichu, level 5

Reward: $80

Ow. This little guy can hurt if you chose Froakie. Nevertheless, he's very fragile.

- Go down the stairs to the north. Note the bush beside the stairs. You'll be able to Cut this down eventually.

- South of the stairs is a trainer.

Schoolgirl Bridget

Bidoof, level 6

Reward: $192

If you're a little weak, this Bidoof can actually provide a bit of a challenge. Straightforward battle otherwise.

- Jump down the cliffs by the trainer to find a Super Potion.

- On your way back up through the grass you'll meet another trainer.

Schoolboy Brighton

Pansage, level 3

Pansear, level 3

Panpour, level 3

Reward: $96

His elemental pokemon might be a challenge if they weren't at such a low level. Oh well, money's nice.

- Head north and you'll arrive aaaaat…

Santalune City

- First up, heal your pokemon. The Pokemon Center is right near the entrance. You can also purchase more items from the Poke Mart in the back, though I wouldn't recommend the X items just yet - they're expensive, and you don't really need them at this stage in the game. Last, you can change clothes in here…

- … and you can buy more clothes in the store next to the Pokemon Center. I highly recommend not splurging on extra clothes this early in the game. They're expensive.

- There are two houses to the west of the entrance. You'll learn a few things in them, but there's nothing of importance inside overall.

- North of these houses, though, is another one - and inside a man will trade a Farfetch'd for a Bunnelby. Farfetch'd aren't great pokemon, but a traded pokemon will grow in strength quickly, and this one can be very useful for the upcoming gym. (Bunnelby aren't exactly rare anyway. Why not?)

- East of this house, past the central fountain, is yet another house. A boy inside will give you a Great Ball.

- North of the fountain is the Trainer School. You can learn many of the basics in here. The older man inside will give you three X Attacks and three X Defenses.

- On a hill in the northwest part of town is an outdoor restaurant. Check the light post for an Antidote, and check the small cluster of flowers on the ground directly east of the light post for a Great Ball. Last, check the flower box out front of the restaurant for a Super Potion. (Thanks to Cats777 for this last one.)

- In the northeast of town is the local gym. In order to get inside you'll have to defeat…

Roller Skater Rinka

Zigzagoon, level 7

Reward: $224, Roller Skates

Just another Zigzagoon. Piece of cake.

Upon beating this girl she'll give you Roller Skates. You can use the Roller Skates to quickly move around on paved terrain. They'll automatically be deployed if you use the joystick on your 3DS. Handy.

If you can defeat Rinka with ease, you'll have no trouble with the Santalune Gym. Time for your first gym battle! Onward!

Return Trip

Route 3

- On the other side of the patch of water to the left of the entrance is a Dawn Stone.

- The tree you can Cut is blocking a Revive.

Really? Yikes. Thanks. I knew I'd be revisiting these early ones again once I had more info, but I didn't think I'd missed THAT many... oh well, gotta love the edit button...

There's also a Super Potion hidden in the flower bushes in front of the cafe northwest of Santalune.
