Route 111

Into the desert of Route 111
Mirage Tower

With the Go-Goggles in your possession, you will have access to the desert part of Route 111. Try to battle all of the Pokémon Trainers here in order to level up your Pokémon. West of the tower near the desert's entrance is a Stardust. In the most southern area of the desert you can find TM37 (Sandstorm). Finally, head into Mirage Tower; but first, make sure you have the Mach Bike and a Pokémon that knows Rock Smash.


Mirage Tower

You can only choose one...Dun dun DUN

Inside, you must use the Mach Bike to ride quickly over the crumbling floor tiles. If you walk, run, or use the Acro Bike, then you will fall through the floor and restart from the previous level. At the top, you will get to choose the Claw Fossil or the Root Fossil. These Fossils can be resurrected into Pokémon later in the game. When restored, the Claw Fossil will become the Rock/Bug-type Anorith and the Root Fossil will become the Rock/Grass-type Lileep. Anorith has high Attack and low defensive stats, and Lileep has high defensive stats but low Attack and Special Attack. Both evolve at Level 40, and their evolutions have much higher, more balanced stats, although their Speed remains very low.

When you make your decision and exit the tower, it will begin to shake and then sink into the sand. The tower will never appear again. However, you can still obtain the remaining Fossil by finding it in the Desert Underpass at the back of the Fossil Maniac's house on Route 114, which is accessible after you obtain the National Pokédex.

Route 113, Fallarbor Town, Meteor Falls, Route 115

Make your way north from Route 111 to Routes 112 and 113, Fallarbor Town, Route 114, Meteor Falls, and Route 115 beyond, all the way back to Rustboro City.

Rustboro City

When you enter the city, take your Fossil to the second floor of the Devon Corporation building, and give it to a scientist there for him to restore. Exit the room, come back in, and receive your newly resurrected Pokémon, then continue on to through Route 104 to Petalburg City.

Route 104, Petalburg Woods

Traverse Route 104 and Petalburg Woods to reach Petalburg City, the home of your next Badge.

Petalburg City

Heal your Pokémon, buy items, and do anything else you need to do before challenging the Petalburg Gymyour father's Gym.

You're finally ready to challenge your father to a Gym battle

Petalburg City Gym

Petalburg Gym E.png
 

This Gym will be less of a challenge if you have any strong Fighting-type Pokémon. For each room you enter, the Trainer therein will focus on the type of battle that is described on that room's door, so choose your battles wisely. Gym Leader Norman focuses on Normal-type moves, as well as some Psychic and Dark ones. You will have to watch out for Slaking's Facade move because it can take out your Pokémon in only a few hits if you inflict Slaking with a status condition such as Poison, Paralysis, or Burn.


Petalburg Gym
The Balance Badge





When you defeat your father, he will hand over the Balance Badge, which allows you to use HM03 (Surf) outside of battle. He will also give you TM42 (Facade). Exit the Gym and enter Wally's parent's house. They will give you HM03 (Surf). Exit the house and continue your journey to Mauville, in search of Fortree City and the Feather Badge.
