Mission 3

When you wake up, Barlow is in a frenzy - someone set the Vien Forest on fire! Barlow immediately sends you into the forest to put the fire out.

Mission 3: Fight the Vien Forest Fire!

Head out for the Vien Forest, which is north (↑) of Vien Town. At the entrance of the forest, you'll meet see Mimi. Mimi's Happiny have run off into the burning forest! Now, you must also find Mimi's Happiny, in addition to fighting the fire.

1. Just around the bend, a Burning Log falls in your way. The crash startles 4 Budew into attacking you. Capture them and, then cross the river and go up a screen. There, capture a Wartortle, and bring it back to the Burning Log and douse the Log.
2. To the right is the first Happiny. Capture it. Continue along the path, and find the other two Happiny's. Capture them, and bring all the Happiny's back to Mimi.
3. Go back to the place of the last Happiny. Continue along the path, putting out more Burning Logs, and soon you'll run into Crawford. He'll tell you to get a Blastoise to put out the flames. Head his advice, and find a Blastoise!
4. Blastoise is found near the river, so go left out of the burning area, and down. The Roselia you pass will be helpful in capturing Blastoise. Once captured, bring Blastoise to the burning area again. Walk towards the middle section, and a question mark should appear over your head. When it does, use Blastiose's Rain Dance Area Move.
5. After the flames are quenched, a strange man appears near a broken red machine. He seems a little worried. Take the man in for questioning, and it's Mission Clear!
6. Back at the Ranger Base, you're promoted to Ranger Rank 2! You can now use Fire and Fighting Poké Assists!

Clear Some Fallen Logs

Vientown
Mr. Woodward
Reward:
Long Lineccard.png Long Line
I'd appreciate it if someone could clear away some fallen logs in Vien Forest. They're blocking paths, much to the annoyance and inconvenience of all. There were two, if I recall correctly.

Mr. Woodward lives in the lower-left house in Vientown. He is the resident woodworker. Mr. Woodward is annoyed about fallen logs in the Vien Forest. He asks you to clear them.
The first log is where the first burning log was. You need Roselia to clear the log. Go to where you found the Roselia last time (west (←) of the burned part) and capture it. Use Roselia on the first log.
Go back and get Roselia again, and use her, this time, on the log just south (↓) of the charred section. It's blocking the skinnier bridge.
When all done, go back to Mr. Woodward! He'll thank you, and you get a Long Line power up, which lengthens the line of your Capture Styler.

6. Use the nearby Voltorb to open the electrified gate. Then grab the Growlithe in the house again, and recapture the Voltorb outside. Then, go down the steps, and all the way across town to the east side. Use the Voltorb on the gate and go up the steps.
7. You'll find a girl named Melody (Isaac's sister) surrounded by rogue Pokémon. Use Growlithe to destroy the nearby green machine. Go left of Melody, onto a bridge. Capture the Elekid, and go back to Melody. Go down the steps to the south, and destroy the nearby blue machine with Elekid. Go east (→).
8. You've reached the Pueltown Docks. Go north and you'll find a gang of people who call themselves Team Dim Sun. They get mad at you for destroying the machines, and send 4 Rattata at you. Capture them. Immediately after, they send out a Toxicroak. This is your first boss fight. Don't panic at the enlarged friendship meter. Just capture it.
9. Afterward, Team Dim Sun flees, you go back to Vientown, and it's Mission Clear!

Vientown and Chicole Village

Back in Vientown, Ollie askes you to go with him to Chicole Village. Go with him. In Chicole Village, you hear the Partner Farm is being haunted by a hat.
