A quietly following stream and hilly terrain with one-way ledges make this a fun area for adventure. Near the entrance of the Eterna Forest is a cabin whose keepers offer rest to weary travelers that stop by. A wide, wooden walkway spans a large pond. Fishermen idle their time away dangling lines from the walkway.
Heading south from the Eterna Forest, the route will turn rocky. On the left, there will be a ledge, where the route comes from Fuego Ironworks, while on the right is a pathway up to the northern segment, but it is blocked by a Cut tree. A bit further down is a house containing a lady that will heal the player's Pokémon. After that, there will be two paths to choose from. One is to continue going up on the hillside, or the other is to go down the stairs and continue along the path. The right path is not reachable when going up the route, due to a series of ledges going down the hill face. The right path is an easy walk down, where there are few Trainers and a patch of soft soil. The left path is more complex, with a large patch of tall grass, and several Trainers ready for battle. Going further south on the left side, there will be a small bridge reaching the end of the hilly section. There will be large patch of grass and a honey tree beside a flowing stream that leads north to the Fuego Ironworks, and east to the Valley Windworks. The route comes further south past a bridge crossing the stream, the route splits into two directions, Floaroma Town to the left, Valley Windworks to the right. Galactic Grunts block access to the route north of the stream until the team is defeated in the Valley Windworks.
After the player has the ability to Cut trees down, a path to the right of the south entrance of the Eterna Forest becomes accessible. This path allows players to completely bypass the large amount of tall grass in the Eterna Forest, and get to the other part of Route 205 more quickly.

A Honey tree on Route 205
The northern segment of Route 205 is a small area. It starts off from the west, exiting the Eterna Forest, the player has two options of reaching Eterna City. The first is to go across a bridge across a large pond. There will be three Fishermen fishing, ready to battle if the player talks to them. The other way of getting across is to go around the pond through a large patch of tall grass. When the player gets through the tall grass, there is a patch of soft soil where Berries can grow. There is also a honey tree when the player goes further. By going south, then west again the player will reach Eterna City.
Ash's Pikachu and Dawn's Piplup were walking happily together when they spotted something in the flowers. They went to investigate and found an injured Meowth. After that, Brock used a Super Potion to treat Meowth's wounds and applied a bandage on his foreleg. Meowth then explained that he, along with Jessie and James, had seen one of Team Galactic's helicopters while wandering about in a forest.
The Team Rocket trio had started following them and, when they had arrived on Fuego Ironworks, they had seen that Looker was in trouble and decided to help him out. However, they had been unable to do so as Jupiter commanded a swarm of Golbat to attack them, which had resulted in Meowth blasting off alone while Jessie and James were caught. After hearing this, the group chose to accompany Meowth to the Fuego Ironworks in order to help Team Rocket and Looker.
Soon after, Pearl and his Pokémon found themselves being attacked by a pair of Wingull. While Pearl's Chatler kept fighting the two in an effective way, the Wingull kept using Roost in turns, allowing them to recover while Chatler kept tiring himself out. Pearl soon discovered that the reason for the Wingull's aggressive behavior was because they had their nest on the cliffside, with their injured friend resting in it. While Pearl tried to tell the Wingull that he didn't mean to harm their friend or nest, a strong updraft blew the nest into the air. Fortunately, Pearl and Chimler managed to save the nest and the injured Wingull from being blown away, although this maneuver caused them to wind off from their intended path and right in front of Fuego Ironworks.
