Route 123 (optional)

Route 123

Route 123 slopes downhill as it runs westward, from Route 122 back to Route 118. The Berry Master's house, and his extensive backyard garden, can be found on the route's west side.

Berry Master's House

The Berry Master's house, and the Berry garden he tends, are located near the route's west end. Talk to him to receive two Berries of the same name every day, chosen randomly: Pomeg, Kelpsy, Qualot, Hondew, Grepa, Tamato, Cornn, Magost, Rabuta, or Nomel.

The Berry Master's wife will give out a Berry each day as well, but the type depends on whether or not you tell her a special phrase. Most answers will result in a common type of Berry—Cheri, Chesto, Pecha, Rawst, Aspear, Leppa, Oran, Persim, Lum, or Sitrus—while certain answers will earn a rarer variety. After hearing all five phrases, she will hand out one common Berry every day.

SUPER HUSTLE Belue Berry Belue Berry

Jagged Pass (second visit)

Magma Hideout entrance

Having received the Magma Emblem from the caretakers atop Mt. Pyre, the next step is to use it. Fly back to Lavaridge Town and Route 112, then either enter Jagged Pass from the south and use the Acro Bike to scale the cliffs, or ride the cable car to the summit and descend. Hike through the area until you reach the halfway point, where you passed that Magma Grunt on your first visit. Just then, a suspicious-looking part of the cliffside begins shaking in response to the Magma Emblem. By the time the tremor subsides, a gaping hole has appeared in the rock!

Magma Hideout, 2F (Room 3)

Located deep in the side of Mt. Chimney, the Magma Hideout serves as the terrestrial team's base of operations. Many strange machines can be found inside, and one chamber even holds excavation equipment for further expansion.


Enter the base, turn the corner, and use Strength to move past the group of boulders. Continue on to battle the Grunt on the east side of the chamber, then take the southeast doorway.


Make your way down the cliffside, battling four more Grunts along the way. After that, head through the mid-level doorway to detour for a handful of items.

2F (Room 2)

Go north to fight a couple of Grunts in a Double Battle, then collect the Full Restore just beyond them. Head back south, then turn east to battle another two Grunts and grab the Max Elixir to the northwest. Continue eastward and head through the northeast doorway.

Back on 1F, follow the elevated path to the southwest, battling a single Grunt along the way to the path's end, where you find a Rare Candy. Backtrack through 2F (Room 2) to the southwest doorway to return to 2F.


Continue down the cliffside and go through the doorway at the bottom.


Head west around the lava pool to battle the first Grunt. Walk down the stairway and go through the doorway to the east.

3F (Room 2)

Pick up a PP Max to the northwest and battle the Grunt to the northeast, then return to the previous chamber.


Walk down the stairway and fight the second Grunt. Go west and collect the Nugget before heading south through the doorway.


Head down the stairway and go west, battling three more Grunts along the way. Continue westward and you are stopped by Magma Admin Tabitha. He tells you that Maxie is up ahead, and draws you into battle to buy some time for his boss.

VS Tabitha

Collect a Max Revive from the northwest corner, then turn south. Up ahead, you find Maxie standing on the edge of a lava pool, talking to the sleeping form of the super-ancient Pokémon, Groudon. He holds the Blue Orb high, and its light awakens the ancient beast, which immediately escapes. Maxie blames you, accusing you of some "cheap stunt", and prepares for battle!

VS Maxie

Defeated, Maxie flees to search for Groudon. Take the south doorway for a shortcut back to the entrance, and collect the Escape Rope along the way through 3F (Room 3) and 2F (Room 3).
