This is the Bulbapedia walkthrough for Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. This walkthrough follows the remade Nintendo DS version, not Pokémon Gold and Silver.
The guide for those can be found here.

Route 32

Route 32

Route 32 is a lengthy, Trainer-heavy route that stretches southward along the coastline. The mysterious Ruins of Alph lie off to the northwest, but only the first of the four chambers can be accessed at this point. South of the ruins are two men standing near a hill. The first gives you a Miracle Seed, while the man on the hill hands out TM05 (Roar). A Repel can be found in the tall grass west of Picnicker Liz. Head south to reach a small inlet, and collect the Great Ball and TM09 (Bullet Seed) from the shore before reaching the Pokémon Center. Further south, a shady man offers a "tasty, nutritious SlowpokeTail" for only PokémonDollar.png1,000,000. On Fridays, Frieda of the Week Siblings can be found behind the Pokémon Center; speaking to her will result in a Poison Barb on the first meeting, and a Relax Ribbon on subsequent meetings (if you've already talked to all of her siblings). The Fisherman inside gives out the Old Rod, and another patron gives out two Lure Balls. Smash the rock outside to reach a Shell Bell, and enter Union Cave.

Union Cave, B1F

Union Cave is a cave on the south end of the peninsula. Seawater wells up from underground, preventing access to the deepest parts of the cave for now. The ground-level tunnel merely connects Routes 32 and 33.


The ground-level tunnel is a fairly straightforward path. Head northwest to reach an X Attack, then detour down to B1F for TM39 (Rock Tomb) and an X Defend. Head south past two Hikers and pick up the Great Ball near Firebreather Bill. Grab the Potion sitting off to the west, then head southeast from Poké Maniac Larry to reach an Awakening, and the exit to Route 33.


Only the middle entrance is accessible now. After going downstairs, go north to find a X Defend. Check a rock directly west of the stairs to pick up a hidden X Speed, and go further west for a TM39 (Rock Tomb).

Route 33

Route 33

Route 33 is a short path that connects Union Cave to Azalea Town in the west. Rains constantly drench the landscape, which includes a single patch of grass and a small Apricorn grove.

Azalea Town

Azalea Town

Azalea is a small, isolated town on the southern edge of the peninsula. Situated between Union Cave to the east and Ilex Forest to the west, the area does not get many visitors. As you head into town, a man in a black uniform is confronted by a resident near the Slowpoke Well. The guy gets chased off, and the shady man goes back to guarding the well. A second figure blocks the Azalea Gym, as well. Stop by the northwest house to meet Kurt, the Apricorn craftsman. He informs you that Team Rocket has seized control of the well and is cutting off Slowpoke tails to sell, before rushing off to save the Pokémon.

Kurt scared off the guard outside, but slipped while entering the well and landed on his back. As he is temporarily incapacitated, it's up to you to chase off the other Rockets and save the group of Slowpoke.

After defeating the three other Rockets, you meet the first of the Rocket Executives. Proton introduces himself as the "scariest and cruelest" member of Team Rocket before challenging you to a battle.

Defeated, he and the others disappear. Kurt's back is feeling better now, and after checking on the Slowpoke, shows you back to his home.
