Route 30

On your second visit to Route 30, the Pokémon battle that had blocked the western road has ended, clearing the path to Violet City.

Route 31

Route 31

Route 31 is a small route that serves to connect Route 30 in the south and Violet in the west. The western entrance to Dark Cave is also located here, but you won't be able to get very far yet. Pick up the Potion near the cave and continue west. There is a Bitter Berry on the tree by the pond, and a Poké Ball south of the nearby ledge.

Violet City

Violet City

Violet is the first city with a Pokémon Gym. Other major attractions include Sprout Tower to the north, and Earl's Pokémon Academy to the east.

Time For a Trade

The kid in the house near the Poké Center is looking for a Bellsprout. If you have one to spare, it's a good idea to trade it to him. The Onix you get in return can make the Gym battle here much easier.

Earl's Pokémon Academy

The Academy is where young prospective Trainers learn how to raise Pokémon. On the blackboard are descriptions of the several status problems that can affect a Pokémon.

Sprout Tower

The Sprout Tower is a towering pagoda run by Buddhist monks. Since these monks also train Pokémon, this is a good opportunity to train before challenging the Violet Gym. Rattata roam the tower during daylight hours, and Gastly can be found at night. After battling past the others, you find your rival having just defeated the head monk. He talks to you briefly before using an Escape Rope. After defeating the elder monk, Sage Li, he rewards you with HM05 (Flash).

Violet Gym

Violet Gym

The Elegant Master
of Flying Pokémon

The Violet Gym is a haven for Flying-types, so Grass- and Bug-types, beware. A great way to clip their wings is to zap them with Electric-type attacks, or knock them out of the sky with Rock-type moves. Your new Onix will be a great help here.

Violet Gym
The Zephyr Badge

After battle, Falkner presents you with the Zephyr Badge, which raises your team's Attack power slightly and allows the use of Flash outside of battle. He also gives you TM31 (Mud-Slap), a move that inflicts damage and lowers accuracy.

Professor Elm calls you as soon as you leave the Gym, asking you to visit his assistant in Violet's Poké Center. The assistant delivers the Mystery Egg to you, since it has to be around an active team of Pokémon to grow and hatch. Call the professor when it finally hatches, and he'll ask you bring it to him. After inspecting your newly-hatched Pokémon, he gives you an Everstone as thanks.

With the Violet Gym defeated, head south to Route 32.
