Floaroma Town

Floaroma Town

Once you arrive in Floaroma Town, you may want to visit the Pick a Peck of Colors Flower Shop. In the shop, a woman will the Sprayduck watering can, and you can receive a rare Berry for free every day. If you have the Event Pokémon Shaymin in your party, you can show it to the young woman near the entrance to receive the Gracidea flower. Since this is the first area in which you can encounter wild Berries, you can collect and then replant some. The Sprayduck can help you collect more Berries if you water the plants correctly within their growth cycle.

After this, exit Floaroma Town to the east and continue walking to Route 205. Near the bridge, a young girl comes up to you and asks you to rescue her papa from the Valley Windworks.

If you want to, you can face the Galactic Grunt here who is guarding the door. After defeating him, he will run inside the Valley Windworks and lock the door. However, he will tell you that his comrades in Floaroma Meadow have a spare key. So, return to Floaroma Town and enter the meadow to the north.

Floaroma Meadow

As you enter the meadow, you notice that two Galactic Grunts appear to be fighting with an old man. You don't have the option of facing these two first before facing the grunt at the entrance of Valley Windworks.

The two grunts will disappear, leaving behind their Valley Windworks key. The man they were trying to rob thanks you, then gives you ten Sweet Honeys as a gift. Now that you have the Works Key, return to the Windworks and open the door.

Also, later on in the game (after acquiring the ability to use Surf), you can use the hidden entrance to the meadow around Fuego Ironworks to find some more items.

When you enter the Windworks, you will startle the grunt who had previously blocked the door. He quickly turns and runs away to warn the Commander. Follow him, battling the two grunts along the way. The Commander notices you and talks to you about Team Galactic, providing some information. She promptly challenges you to a battle.



The danger here is that Mars' Level 17 Purugly is tough to beat unless if your team was well prepared beforehand. If you started with Chimchar, having it evolve into Monferno (at Lv. 14) to learn Mach Punch is useful. Machop and its Karate Chop attack will also work as an alternative. Other good Pokémon to use would be Geodude, Staravia or Luxio. Upon defeat, Mars will gather her grunts and leave the Windworks after another Commander reminds her that they've already collected enough energy from the Windworks for their plans.

The little girl's father thanks you for rescuing him, and his daughter runs in happily, thanking you as she passes. You now may continue north on Route 205, which was previously blocked by Galactic Grunts. After leaving the Windworks, Looker shows up and mentions that he heard of the attack on the Windworks and at first is in disbelief that you drove Team Galactic away. He then mentions that Team Galactic is rumored to have a hideout in Eterna City. Before continuing north, return to Floaroma Town and heal up your team.

Route 205 (Part 1)

Route 205

As stated before, the Galactic Grunts who were blocking you from entering Route 205 are now gone with Commander Mars. You can go down the small bridge and then continue heading north until you get to Eterna Forest. There are many Trainers, items, and wild Pokémon on this route. If you need to rest, the woman in the house near the northern end of the route can heal your Pokemon.

Once you get to the end of the route, you will be at Eterna Forest.
