Route 120

Route 120

The lengthy Route 120 runs southeast from Fortree City to Route 121. The long grass makes great cover for Pokémon capable of camouflaging themselves. In this route in some areas the weather is raining constantly. Two separate ruins, Scorched Slab and the Ancient Tomb, are located here.

Gabby and Ty

After defeating Gabby and Ty on Route 118, the news team can now be found in the northeast corner of the route. Accept their challenge and give them another great interview afterwards!

The Unseen Objects

You meet Steven again on the northern bridge. It seems that another unseen object blocks the way forward, but luckily, he has a way to solve this mystery. He puts on the Devon Scope, a high-tech piece of eyewear that reveals invisible objects. Sure enough, it reveals a Kecleon in front of you; catch or defeat the Pokémon to clear the bridge. Pleased with your actions, Steven allows you to keep the device. With the Devon Scope in hand, you can chase off the Kecleon outside the Gym. Head back into town to win your next Badge, or continue exploring the route.

In the route 119 there are 2 invisible Kecleon, while in the route 120 there are 6 invisible Kecleon.

Scorched Slab

Scorched Slab is a cave jutting up out of the north lake. The entrance lies at water level, so the single chamber inside holds mostly water. At the far end of the cave, a small slab of rock holds a single bit of treasure, TM11 (Sunny Day).

A Berry A Day

The route splits near its south end, with the western trail leading up to a plateau. Talk to the Beauty near the stairway and she'll give you one rare Berry every day. The kind of Berry received depends on the last digit of your Trainer ID number.

Berry Condition
  Figy Berry ID number ends in 0 or 5
  Wiki Berry ID number ends in 1 or 6
  Mago Berry ID number ends in 2 or 7
  Aguav Berry ID number ends in 3 or 8
  Iapapa Berry ID number ends in 4 or 9

Ancient Tomb

The unusual arrangement of stones on the southwest plateau is known as the Ancient Tomb. It is believed to mark the resting place of a legendary Pokémon. But with the entrance sealed, you won't be able to investigate until later.

Fortree City

Fortree Gym

Fortree Gym

Fortree City Pokémon Gym
Leader: Winona

The bird user taking flight into the world.

The Fortree Gym specializes in Flying-type Pokémon, which take serious damage from Electric, Rock, and Ice moves. The Gym is fairly straightforward, with a single path leading up to the Gym Leader's lofty perch. The only obstacles are turnstiles, some of which can only be spun in certain directions. Pass through the first two turnstiles to reach Bird Keeper Humberto. After that, spin the third turnstile clockwise to reach Picnicker Ashley and Bird Keeper Jared. Spin the fourth turnstile clockwise, then do the same for the fifth. Go back to the fourth and push the larger side southward, then spin it clockwise again. Pass through the fifth turnstile again to reach Camper Flint and Bird Keeper Edwardo on the other side. Defeat Bird Keeper Darius to the west, then there are only three turnstiles left. Spin the smallest one counter-clockwise without walking through it, then pass through all three in a counter-clockwise circle. Push the larger side of the southeast one eastward, then go northeast to reach the Gym Leader.

Winona starts off with Swablu; not very threatening on its own, but Mirror Move executes the previous move used by the target, and Perish Song causes any Pokémon on the field to faint in three turns. Her Tropius relies on the sun; Sunny Day both doubles its Speed due to its Chlorophyll Ability, eliminates the charging turn needed for SolarBeam while active. It also makes Synthesis more effective, restoring 66% of its HP rather than the usual 50%. Her Pelipper takes massive damage from Electric attacks. Rock moves are also effective, but Rock Pokémon should be wary of its Water Gun. Skarmory has several resistances and a high physical Defense, which may rise even higher due to Steel Wing. Sand-Attack makes it harder to hit, while Aerial Ace's perfect accuracy lets it reliably land a hit. Due to its Dragon typing, her Altaria takes only normal damage from Electric moves. Rock moves will be more effective, and Ice moves are greater still. It can target unsuspecting Electric types with Earthquake, and can raise its Attack and Speed with Dragon Dance.

Fortree Gym

Upon her defeat, Winona awards you the Feather Badge, which ensures obedience from all Pokémon up to level 70 and enables the use of Fly in the field. This move allows you to instantly revisit any city or town you've previously explored. She also hands out TM40 (Aerial Ace) as a prize, and registers herself in your PokéNav.

A short time after you leave the Gym, you receive a call from Scott. He's impressed that you defeated the Fortree Gym, and wonders if you could be the Trainer he's been searching for. He also reminds you that he'll keep cheering for you from the sidelines.

Trick House - Puzzle 5 (optional)

In Trick House now you can complete the puzzle 5.

Route 121

Route 121

Compared to its neighbor to the west, Route 121 is smaller and more straightforward. Route 122 runs off to the south, while Lilycove City lies to the east. The north side of the route is home to the Safari Zone, a park that attracts Trainers from across the region.

A Sighting

It's not long before you catch a glimpse of Team Aqua. These Grunts are in a rush to reach Mt. Pyre, and take off to the south. Go first to east.

Lilycove City (briefly)

Visit the Cove Lily Motel.

Cove Lily Motel

Scott can be found napping at a table on the upper level. If you want to win 3 BP from Scott later then talk with him in this moment since he only appears in this place before Team Aqua steals the submarine from Slateport City.

Route 122

Route 122

Route 122 is a short, simple ocean route stretching between Routes 121 and 123, with Mt. Pyre standing tall in the center.
