Route 110

Route 110

Once Team Aqua is out of the way, you can go to Mauville City using the low road beneath Seaside Cycling Road. You can also catch Electrike in this route, a strong Electric-type Pokémon despite its shallow movepool.

If you didn't register Professor Birch in Littleroot Town, he will appear near the beginning of this route, talk to you, and automatically be recorded on your PokéNav.

Trick House

Main article: Trick House
The Trick House is right next to Cycling Road.

Along the route, you'll come across a place called the Trick House. There will be a man called the Trick Master hiding somewhere in the house. Upon finding him, you will get to enter a maze-like puzzle. Some puzzles require HMs and all of them are pretty tricky, but you'll get rewarded at the end. The Trick House can be challenged up to 8 times.

NOTE: Be sure to get every item in each puzzle, since these can be permanently missed.

At present, you can only do the first one. You'll need Cut to do it.

Continue your way to the right of this route where your rival is waiting for you. His/her Pokémon are now levels 18-20 and their types are more balanced out. If you're in need of extra training, you can optionally head west to Route 103 and battle the trainers there (see below Route 103's section).

252 If the player chose Treecko:

255 If the player chose Torchic:

258 If the player chose Mudkip:

Once you defeat him/her, you will receive the Item Finder. You can carry on North to Mauville City, where the third Gym Leader is waiting, or you can take a short detour to the west to Route 103 to get some extra experience (if you haven't yet visited that route).

Route 103

Back to Route 103! This is the eastern side of the route. There are a lot of Trainers here. It's a good idea to battle them all— it's excellent training for your upcoming Gym battle.

Mauville City

Mauville City

Once you enter Mauville City, go to the bicycle shop. After the owner hears that you walked all the way from Littleroot Town, he will give you a free bike! You can choose the Mach Bike, which goes really fast; or the Acro Bike, which is good for doing tricks like wheelies. After you get your bike, you can always come back here and switch bikes.

Near Mauville Gym is a man who will teach a compatible Pokémon Rollout one time only.

Go to the Pokémon Gym, where Wally is standing outside with his uncle. Wally wants to challenge the Gym Leader, but his uncle refuses to let him until his breathing problem is better. He will challenge you with his Ralts to prove his abilities. It is an average Pokémon at this point in the game, although it does know Double Team, which ups evasiveness, so watch out for that. In addition, you should know that Ralts's Teleport has no effect in this battle.

After you defeat him, he and his uncle will go to Verdanturf Town. Then Scott comes over and congratulates you on winning. Now you can go to the Gym and battle its Leader, Wattson, but first we'll visit Mauville Game Corner, and then Route 118.

Mauville Game Corner

Here you can play games to gain more coins! To get the coin case, trade Harbor Mail to woman in the house next to the PokéMart. Buy coins, and start playing!

Route 118

We're going to head right, from Mauville City to Route 118. This is the western side of the route. You can't explore most of it, but the experience is valuable.

Now we enter the gym to get the third badge.

Mauville Gym

Mauville Gym

The Gym has a series of electric barriers and lightning bolt-shaped switches keeping you from the Gym Leader, who uses Electric-type Pokémon. You will need to battle a few Trainers to get to him. Be prepared before you battle Wattson as his highest-leveled Pokémon is Level 24, and the rest of his Pokémon are above Level 20 as well. If you have a strong Ground-type Pokémon with you, (like Marshtomp) you will have an easy victory. Don't use Water- or Flying-type Pokémon here. If you're in need of extra training, you can optionally head west to Route 117 and battle against trainers and wild pokémon there, and also you can head north to Route 111 (Southern section) and battle against four trainers there (see Part 5 of walkthrough for Route 117 and Route 111's sections). You'll want to buy a few Potions and Parlyz Heals before challenging this Gym. When ready, step through the door.

Mauville Gym
The Dynamo Badge

Wattson sends out his Voltorb first. It has the Rock-type move Rollout, which hits over a number of turns and increases in power each turn, so be careful. It also knows the attacks Spark and Shock Wave, as well as the dangerous move Selfdestruct which causes the user to faint, but has so much power that it might take out your Pokémon with it. Your best strategy here is to get Voltorb knocked out as quickly as possible. Electrike isn't much of a threat and can be knocked out easily. Any strong attack will probably take it out in one hit. The only thing you need to worry about is its Ability— if your Pokémon uses a move that makes contact, it may become paralyzed. Watch out when you face Magneton— it has a dangerously high Special Attack stat, so Shock Wave can potentially do a lot of damage. Watch out for Supersonic and Thunder Wave, which inflict confusion and paralysis respectively. Also, SonicBoom does exactly 20 HP damage whenever it hits. Thankfully, Magneton has 4× weakness to Ground. Wattson's strongest Pokémon is his Manectric. It has the same ability as Electrike, and knows Howl to boost its Attack and Thunder Wave to paralyze your Pokémon, as well as the attacks Quick Attack and Shock Wave. It has more balanced stats than the rest of Wattson's Pokémon, but shouldn't give you too much of a hard time.

After being defeated, Wattson gives you the Dynamo Badge and TM34 (Shock Wave).

As you walk away from the Gym, Wally will call you and tell him his uncle bought him a PokéNav. After the call, his number will be registered in yours.

Where you'll be going next is west to Route 117 after healing at the Pokémon Center.
