Woo! You now have one pokemon under your belt, and it's a potent little pokemon indeed. Don't let that go to your head, though - there are still hundreds more to collect, and along the way you'll have to battle many trainers who are much stronger than yourself. For now, begin your Pokemon journey by heading to the first route in the game with - gasp! - wild pokemon.

Route 2 - Avance Trail

- Directly north of Aquacorde Town is the first patch of grass in the game. Patches of grass on the overworld contain wild pokemon, and you'll get into random battles if you run around in one. Once in battle you can whittle down the wild pokemon's HP with attacks and, if you're lucky, use a Poke Ball on it and catch it for your team. The pokemon available in this particular area are listed in the table to the side.

- (As with your starter, I largely advise using pokemon that you like on your team. If you want a step-up for the first gym battle, though, I suggest catching a Fletchling or a Pidgey. Flying-types versus bug-types? No contest.)

- Last before you set off into the route, remember that you can heal yourself at a store near the fountain in Aquacorde Town. This is a good policy if you catch new pokemon and want to start training them immediately.

- Walk through the grass to see a cut scene on catching pokemon. (You'll probably already have a few by now. Oh well.) At the end of it you'll receive ten Poke Balls.

- Proceed north. Not a whole lot to see here… though when you reach the end of the trail, just before the next area…

Youngster Austin

Zigzagoon, Level 5

Reward: $120

This guy's a piece of cake - his pokemon is basically just an advanced version of the Zigzagoons you may or may not have already been fighting. Your starter can handle him.

Santalune Forest

- Shauna will follow you through here. Talk to her any time you like for a quick pick-me-up for your pokemon.

- Start with the left. Directly west of the entrance, just beyond a patch of grass, is an Antidote.

- North of here, also amid the grass, is a Potion.

- Back to the start. Up and to the right of the entrance is a Potion on the ground.

- Follow the eastern path. North of the usual gang you'll see a trainer standing by himself; check the grassy area just south and to the right of him and Shauna will find you a Paralyze Heal.

- Then, if you feel up to it (you should), challenge the trainer.

Youngster Joey

Scatterbug, level 3

Fletchling, level 3

Reward: $72

You'll cream this guy, regardless of your team. Trust me.

- Keep following the path. Talk to Calem (the guy in blue) along the way and he'll give you a Poke Ball.

- Soon enough you'll run afoul of another trainer.

Lass Anna

Pikachu, level 5

Reward: $250

Pikachu may seem threatening given its elemental strengths, but this Pikachu in particular has no powerful attacks to shock your water- or flying-types. Knock it down quickly.

- The path splits as you're headed south. To the left you'll find a Potion, as well as the exit; to the right you'll find a trainer who's blocking the way to a Poke Ball.

Lass Lise

Weedle, level 2

Bunnelby, level 4

Reward: $96

Like the other trainers in this forest, she's a pushover.

- Once you leave the forest you'll be on a short path leading to Santalune City. Calem will give you Adventure Rules, and you'll be off to the city.

Return Trip

Santalune Forest

- After upgrading your Mega Ring in Anistar City, come back here. Enter Santalune Forest through the southern exit and check the long patch of grass to the north between 8 and 9 PM. You'll see a dark sparkle here. In Pokemon X, this is Pinsirite; in Pokemon Y, this is Heracronite.

      heeey you can't catch Kakunas in Pokemon Y just weedle, Kakuna is in X version and Metapod in Y, if you don't believe me look in your pokedex.

      Just wanted to add that, at least in Y, Kakuna cannot be found in santalune forest. I searched for over an hour and gave up. After battling the gym and checking in the pokedex for kakunas location, it said "area unknown," meaning it is not in the wild for Y version.

      This is really good, just wish it was available as a PDF download. I would compile it myself but my 3DS-XL is arriving in the morning and I'll be lost in pokémon once it gets here Q_Q

      I did specify, under the 'version' category. You can get them in both games if you look for a while.

      I think you should specify which ones you can catch in what game because from my knowledge, metapod is caught in y and kakuna is caught in x.
