[[Eterna Forest]] has a reputation for being a mysterious place, from the abandoned [[Old Chateau]] to the strange Moss Rock. Eterna Forest is a long and complex structure of trees that make it a natural maze, where a lot of people get lost. It's home to many Bug- and Grass-type Pokémon, and is currently the only known place in the Pokémon worldSinnoh to find and catch {{p|Buneary}}.
Once inside, a woman named [[Cheryl]] will ask you to escort her through the forest, since she is worried about being attacked by [[Team Galactic]]. When traveling with her, all wild encounters will become [[Double Battle]]s! If you want to catch any of the Pokémon found here, it is recommended you do so after you've parted ways; while you're in Cheryl's company you're unable to catch wild Pokémon while there are two enemies on the field, and her Chansey will quickly finish off a single Pokémon. You also have the option of challenging pairs of Trainers as a tag team with Cheryl or by yourself by talking to them to fight individual battles. The greatest benefit of traveling with her is that after every battle, she will fully heal your team! This makes Eterna Forest a great place to train for your upcoming Gym Battle.
The most direct route from the southern exit to the northern exit is as follows: travel northeast from the entrance, through the [[tall grass]], and then directly north, following the path between a Lass and a Bug Catcher. Then, continue east a short way to the trees and then south to a large patch of tall grass. From there, continue east until the eastern wall is reached. A considerable distance north of there is the exit, around a small rock ledge. However, you may (and should) choose to deviate from this route, as there are a lot of items and Trainers to be found in Eterna Forest. Once you reach the northern exit, Cheryl will leave. Upon leaving, Cheryl will give you the Soothe Bell as a gift. Additionally, the Old Chateau (where {{hm|01|Cut}} is necessary to clear the trees blocking it) is near the exit. You'll be coming back here later.
==Route 205 (Part 2east)==
When you come out of Eterna Forest and return to {{rt|205|Sinnoh}}, all you need to do is walk across the bridge. The {{tc|Fishermen}} won't battle you unless you talk to them, so if you don't want the experience just go straight ahead to Eterna City.

Here are some other places you can check out in Eterna City:
====Underground Man====
Right next to the Pokémon Center is the house of the [[Underground Man]], who will give you the [[Explorer Kit]]. You can use this daily to travel to the [[Sinnoh Underground]], a vast expanse of tunnels where you can mine for items and create a [[Secret Base]].
There are two potential types of fossils that can be mined in the Underground, but only one type is available per game. It has to do with the last digit of your [[Trainer ID number]] (visible on your [[Trainer Card]]). If the last digit is odd then you'll be able to obtain the Skull Fossil ({{p|Cranidos}}), but if it is even then you'll get the Armor Fossil ({{p|Shieldon}}). Fossils can be revived into their respective Pokémon in the [[Oreburgh Mining Museum]]. The Fossils from Generation I and III can only be obtained after getting the [[National Pokédex]].
====Eterna Condominiums====
{{main|Eterna Condominiums}}
In this building, Sinnoh's [[Name Rater]] can be found, as well as a boy named Norton who will trade a {{p|Chatot}} for a {{p|Buizel}}, and yet another who will give away {{TM|67|Recycle}}.
====Herb Shop====
{{main|Herb Shop}}
The [[Herb Shop]] is a shop that sells herbs with effects similar to other medicines. They're relatively inexpensive, but their bitter taste lowers the [[Happiness]] of Pokémon they are used on. [[Revival Herb]]s are probably the most useful thing that can be bought here.
====Bike Shop====
{{main|Rad Rickshaw's Cycle Shop}}
Obviously, this is a store where [[Bicycle]]s are sold. However, you can't purchase a bike from the store. The owner is being held captive by Team Galactic! You can ask him to read you the manual for the bike here once you receive one.
====Oak's House====
After you completed the [[List of Pokémon by Sinnoh Pokédex number|Sinnoh Dex]] and get the National Pokédex (much, much later in the game), you can go to the house where [[Professor Oak]] is staying for a while. When you talk to him, he will tell you that {{p|Articuno}}, {{p|Zapdos}}, and {{p|Moltres}} are [[Roaming Pokémon|roaming]] [[Sinnoh]]. After that, the trio will appear around Sinnoh, but rarely.
You can challenge the Eterna City Gym if you want but if you need more time to train or find new Pokémon you can check out the west side of {{rt|211|Sinnoh}} and part of the north side of [[Mt. Coronet]] by heading through Eterna City's eastern exit. See [[Appendix:Platinum walkthrough/Section 14#Route 211|this section]] for more details on Route 211 and [[Appendix:Platinum walkthrough/Section 15|this section]] for Mt. Coronet's North Area.
Once you beat her you will receive the {{Badge|Forest}}, {{TM|86|Grass Knot}}, and the ability to use {{m|Cut}} outside of battle. Now, you may enter the Galactic Eterna Building.

Before heading to the [[Rad Rickshaw's Cycle Shop|shop]], visit the Pokémon Center and make sure that your party has a free space - just before arriving at the Bike Shop you'll encounter [[Cynthia]] again, who will give you a [[Pokémon Egg]] that hatches into a {{p|Togepi}}. When you meet Rad Rickshaw at his shop, he will give you a [[bicycle]]. You can ask him to read you the manual for the bike here once you receive one. A unique feature of this bicycle is that the player can press the B button to switch between the third and fourth gears. Fourth gear is faster than third gear and allows the player to ride up {{DL|bike obstacles|muddy slopes}} and jump further from bike {{DL|bike obstacles|ramps}}. Third gear can jump bike ramps, but does not jump as far. Head to Eterna City's south entrance - now that you have a bicycle, you're allowed onto Route 206, the [[Cycling Road]].
Finally, before you leave down, make sure you bring Pokémon which know {{m|Cut}}, and {{TM|70|Flash}} (which is found in the basement of the [[Oreburgh Gate]]) and {{m|Rock Smash}}, as you'll need them to enter and navigate the nexta few of the upcoming areas.
==Old Chateau==
[[File:Old Chateau entrance DPPt.png|left|thumb|200px|The Old Chateau's main floor]]
[[File:Old Chateau 2F DPPt.png|thumb|right|275px|The upstairs hallway.]]
Now that you have {{m|Cut}}, you can visit the [[Old Chateau]], which is located in the northern part of [[Eterna Forest]], by the exit. Buy some [[Nest Ball]]s from the Pokémart in Eterna City then backtrack to Eterna Forest, because the Old Chateau is home to {{p|Rotom}},. andSince thethere firstare oneno in-offgame encounterTrainers who use Rotom, you will need to face it here at some point for it to be counted as seen in theyour game[[Pokédex]]. You'll find Gardenia near the entrance who, when you talk to her, appears too scared to go in due to the ghosts. Rotom aside, the Old Chateau is worth exploring to collect the items inside it. Go up the stairs to find the hallway with multiple small rooms. The only wild Pokémon you'll encounter here are {{p|Gastly}}, so you might want to bring some [[Repel]]s to save yourself some annoyance.
From here, use the first door on your left to reach a room with a TV. During the night (8:00 PM to 3:59 AM), Rotom can be found here, hiding in the TV. Unlike in {{2v2|Diamond|Pearl}}, where you could only find it once the [[National Dex]] has been obtained, it can be found and captured right now. Since there are no in-game Trainers who use Rotom, you will need to face it here at some point for it to be counted as seen in your [[Pokédex]].
{| style="margin: auto;"
Head upstairs and into the main hallway, and save the game before interacting with the TV which Rotom has possessed. Rotom is not very tough, so take care to whittle its health down with flying-, bug-, or poison-type moves. As Rotom is only level 20, Nest Balls will have the same catch rate as Ultra Balls in this encounter, so send it to [[Sleep]] or [[Paralysis|Paralyze]] it, then use your Nest Balls to catch it. If you got the {{ball|Dusk}} from [[Oreburgh City]], then that will work even better than Nest Balls.
