Places of interest
The hot springs are connected to an opening in the back of the Pokémon Center. The people draw as much hot water as they need, yet the spring never runs dry. The magma in the active volcano causes veins of water nearby to well up as hot springs. According to legend, the Lavaridge hot springs calm tension, relieve muscle ache, solve romantic problems, and attract money. An old woman standing by the sand baths will give away an Egg containing a Wynaut. There is also an Ice Heal hidden in the water.
In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the hot spring is split down the middle based on gender, indicated by blue and pink doorways, but the player is able to enter either side. A gentleman in the Pokémon Center comments that the hot springs are for Pokémon only. A female Pokémon Breeder in front of the hot spring entrances sells Moomoo Milk individually or by the dozen. After Groudon/Kyogre has been captured or defeated, a Kecleon can be discovered in the female side of the hot spring, and the old woman by the sand baths will give away a second Egg, containing a Togepi.
The Herb Shop sells four different types of herbal medicine. The herbs are extremely bitter and will cause a Pokémon's friendship to decrease when used. An old man inside of the shop will give the player Charcoal.
