Take that, Brawly. You've managed to best Dewford's greatest disciple of weight training, and with his fall the rest of this small island seems kinda underwhelming by comparison. But there are secrets to be had in the north of Dewford, where a mysterious little cave waits - one filled with intriguing murals of creatures long past.

(Also on the cover of the game.)

Route 106

- Whether or not you’ve already defeated Brawly, head north from Dewford Town. In short order you’ll hit Route 106. There's a sign announcing the fact; check down and to the right of it, along the water's edge, to find a hidden Heart Scale. Head west along this short Route (it’s much longer once you can Surf) and you’ll run into a pair of trainers. The rock beside the second trainer (northern rock) contains a hidden Stardust. You’ll find a third trainer if you skim around the edge of the rock formation to the far west, where you’ll also discover a Protein. A few steps back east along the beach you can find a hidden Poke Ball, as well.

Fisherman Ned

  • Tentacool, level 13

Reward: $416

Tentacool are the bane of any Surfer, and they come up in trainer battles fairly often as well. (In fairness, they are pretty good pokémon.) Normal-type moves will probably have to suffice in this case, unless you picked up and trained a Ralts.

Backpacker Graeme

  • Slakoth, level 13

Reward: $312

Slakoth can be pretty annoying if it manages to put your attacker to sleep. Try to end this in two turns with a fighting-type turn, if you can, or at least something really strong from your best fighter.

Fisherman Elliot

  • Magikarp, level 10
  • Tentacool, level 12

Reward: $4384

Yep!

- There’s a cave ahead. Pop inside.

Granite Cave

- Granite Cave is, mercifully, bereft of trainers, and is fairly small in this iteration. (The part you can reach right now, anyway.) Speak to the guy on the first floor and he’ll give you TM70, Flash, which will allow you to brighten dark areas. (Hint hint.) Climb down the series of ramps beside the dude to reach the lower level. Down here you’ll meet Steven, the dude for whom you bear a Letter. He’ll give you TM51, Steel Wing.

- That’s all? That’s all! Leave Granite Cave and return to Briney. The old sea dog will task you with a new quest for Mr. Stone, in this case taking the Devon Parts to the city of Slateport. Briney’s more than happy to cart you over in his ship, and he’ll continue to provide ferry services between Petalburg, Dewford, and Slateport until you can Surf on your pokemon.

Mr. Briney escorts May to Slateport on this ship, departing from Dewford Town.

Route 109

- After parting ways with Briney you’ll wind up on a stretch of beach just south of Slateport. If you want you can skip most of the trainers here by walking carefully, though, as ever, it’s worth taking the time to fight the lot of ‘em. Make sure you speak to the little girl to the right of where you land for a Soft Sand, handy if you use ground-type pokemon, and check the faaaaaar top-left corner of the beach for a PP Up. There's a hidden Revive in the first red umbrella on your left from the dock, a hidden Heart Scale in the blue umbrella just south of the semi-naggy mother on the beach, a hidden Ether along the eastern side of the beach (not far from a red umbrella), and a hidden Heart Scale one square north of the old dude with his Zigzagoon in the northeast corner of the Route.

Sailor Huey

  • Machop, level 15

Reward: $600

Shrug. He’s kinda pathetic compared to Brawly.

Tuber Ricky

  • Zigzagoon, level 14

Reward: $56

Man, the shrugs. (It knows Surf, of all things. There’s no need to fear.)

Tuber Lola

  • Azurill, level 14

Reward: $56

A single Azurill? Oh man. Sad. So easy to trounce, this little girl is. Furious shrugs.

Sailor Edmond

  • Wingull, level 12
  • Machop, level 14

Reward: $560

Shrug!

The Seashore House of Route 109, home to some blazing hot trainers. Also snow cones.

- In the top-left corner of Route 109 is a small building known as the Seashore House. Inside you’ll find several trainers waiting to battle you. If you defeat all three trainers inside, the owner (the man in red in the back) will give you six Soda Pops. These are fairly handy healing items for the next couple of areas, and after you’ve collected your prize you can return to the Seashore House to purchase more at $300 apiece. Check in front of the blue inner tube outside the Seashore House for a hidden Great Ball while you're here, as well.

Beauty Johanna

  • Goldeen, level 15

Reward: $840

Aside from the large reward, this isn’t a terribly notable fight. Goldeen are bare-bones water-types without a whole lot going for ‘em. Peck can be a little dangerous for your grass-types, but it probably won’t survive long enough to use Peck anyway.

Tuber Simon

  • Azurill, level 14

Reward: $56

Standard stuff. Azurill is pretty pathetic overall.

Sailor Dwayne

  • Tentacool, level 13
  • Machop, level 13

Reward: $520

A grouping of pokemon you’ve fought several times over by now. Not much to say here, though Tentacool is always a mild threat with its decent durability.

Delinquent Destinee

  • Sableye, level 15

Reward: $480

Oooo, this is a new one. Though it doesn’t hit terribly hard, Sableye’s dark- and ghost-type pairing is problematic this early in the game. If you have a fairy-type pokemon (Ralts) you can eliminate it quickly; otherwise this will be a bit of an endurance trial. Just be sure not to accidentally use normal-type moves on the thing.

Street Thug Blair

  • Poochyena, level 12
  • Carvanha, level 14

Reward: $448

Another new pokemon. Carvanha is strong and fast, but its durability is poor. A fighting- or grass-type move will knock it out easily.

- That’s all for Route 109. (For now, anyway.) Head north to find Slateport.

Return Trip

Granite Cave

(Late in the game, once you have the National Dex, you can return to this Route to find new pokemon via DexNav sneaking. A list of available pokemon can be found here.)

- Come back to Granite Cave once you have the Mach Bike from Mauville City. You can use it to climb the slope in the entrance of Granite Cave. Up here you'll find a ladder leading into the depths, where additional pokemon capture opportunities await. Now's a good time to have Flash on a pokemon, as it gets quite dark down here.

- There's an Escape Rope sitting right beside the ladder once you descend. Loop north and east to find a Poke Ball. All the way south of here is a dead end with a rock, and, hidden next to it, a Paralyze Heal. (Thanks to Joy in the comments for finding that one.) Backtrack a short ways and use the Bike to zip up the slope to the north.

- There are multiple ladders up here, leading into the ground. Head up and to the left, as far as you can go, to find a ladder that leads to a Rare Candy to start. The next ladder down the way leads to another ladder, as well as a Repel and a hidden Super Potion in the bottom-right corner before jumping off of the ledge. The final ladder, up the ramp nearest the first that leads around the room, is your ultimate destination.

- You'll start running into trainers down here, so get ready to fight. As you head northeast you'll see a stone sitting at the top of a set of stairs; it contains a hidden Everstone. To the right of it (possibly only visible in the dark, I'm not sure) is Steelixite, and to the left is TM65, Shadow Claw. At the end of the passage, just past the second trainer, is an Escape Rope. You've reached the end of Granite Cave at this point, so... use it, maybe...?

Ruin Maniac Omari

  • Sandshrew, level 15

Reward: $420

Meh. Pushover.

Hiker Davian

  • Geodude, level 15

Reward: $480

Terrifying.

      There's also a paralyze heal on the other side of the rock that the pokeball was next to in Granite Cave

      Thanks, Joy. Little late, but I stuck it in on your say-so.

      It's a fun game, Aurora Glaze. I'll admit that I still prefer the originals - they're more challenging on average - but it's a solid remake nonetheless.
