Hot Springs

The Hot Springs is connected to an opening in the back of the Pokémon Center. The people draw as much hot water as they need, yet the spring never runs dry. The magma in the active volcano causes veins of water nearby to well up as hot springs. According to legend, the Lavaridge hotsprings calm tension, relieve muscle ache, solve romantic problems, and attract money. An old couple relaxing at the springs will give away an Egg containing a Wynaut. There is also an Ice Heal hidden in the water.

Pokémon Herb Shop

Main article: Herb Shop

The Herb Shop sells four different types of herbal medicine. The herbs are extremely bitter and will cause a Pokémon's friendship to decrease when used. An old man inside of the shop will give the player Charcoal.

All four of the herbs in some way heal the Pokémon that they are used on but cause the Pokémon to be less friendly. The Energy Root heals a Pokémon's HP by 200. The EnergyPowder heals a Pokémon's HP by 50. The Revival Herb revives a fainted Pokémon with all of its HP. The Heal Powder heals any status condition.

The prices of the herbs, in all four regions with herb shops, are:

Energy Root Energy Root
Pokémon Dollar800
EnergyPowder EnergyPowder
Pokémon Dollar500
Revival Herb Revival Herb
Pokémon Dollar2800
Heal Powder Heal Powder
Pokémon Dollar450

"Bitter taste - better cure!"
