The Pokémon Day Care is a facility that raises Pokémon for busy Trainers. For a small fee, up to two Pokémon can be left here to be raised by the Day Care staff. During their stay, Pokémon will gradually level up and learn new moves. When two compatible Pokémon are left at the same time, you may return to find an Egg! Speak to the Day-Care Man and he will hint at the odds of finding one.
Chance for Egg
"Those two seem to get along like a house on fire."
"Those two seem peaceable enough toward each other."
"But I have to say, those two don’t seem to like each other all that much."
"Those two would really rather play with other Pokémon, though, and not each other."
Whenever an Egg is found, the Day-Care Man will be facing the road, eager to talk to you. Speak to him to receive the Egg, and carry it with you on your journey. The more you travel with an Egg, the faster the Pokémon inside will hatch.
Verdanturf is a small town just west of Route 117, at the foot of the mountains. Due to the prevailing wind pattern, the area is always kept clear of falling volcanic ash. Wally is visiting with his uncle's family here, in the hopes that the fresh, clean air will improve his health.
The middle home on the south side belongs to Wanda, who happens to be Wally's cousin. This is where Wally is staying for now, but it seems that he's run off to train his Pokémon. According to Wanda's mother, Wanda is concerned about her boyfriend, who is working non-stop to complete the construction of Rusturf Tunnel. She often goes there to visit him.
Lost and Found
The little girl near Wanda's House is sad about losing her Shroomish. She believes that the Pokémon got separated from her near the town sign. Inspect the sign, and Shroomish pops out from behind it. The Pokémon is automatically reunited with the little girl, who is so relieved that she rewards you with an Intriguing Stone!
With the Dynamo Badge, you can finally use Rock Smash to clear a path through Rusturf Tunnel. Step inside and go northwest to reach a group of cracked rocks. Clear the debris to open the tunnel and reunite Wanda with her hardworking boyfriend. As thanks, he gives you an Aggronite that he found in the cave!
Lost His Glasses
Take the tunnel's middle exit to reach a previously-unreachable part of Route 116. The Bug Maniac here has lost his glasses, so dig out your Dowsing Machine and use it to track down a pair of Black Glasses. These aren't the glasses he lost though, so you get to keep them. Before moving on, be sure to grab the HP Up on the ridge.
The Researcher's Reward
Continue through Rusturf Tunnel to its western exit to return to Route 116. A Devon researcher can be found just outside the tunnel. It's the same researcher that you've helped before, and as thanks for delivering the Devon Parts to Captain Stern, he wishes to reward you with a Repeat Ball. After receiving this one, you can buy Repeat Balls, Net Balls, and Timer Balls in Rustboro City.
