There are two ways out of Verdanturf; to the east is Route 117 towards Mauville City, and to the north is the Rusturf Tunnel, which was being constructed to link Rustboro and Verdanturf. However, the construction disturbed the local Whismur who lived in the tunnel, and so it was canceled. Wanda's boyfriend tried to dig the tunnel himself, but was unable to do it. After the player gets the Dynamo Badge, he or she can use Rock Smash to complete the tunnel and open a path to Route 116.
The windswept highlands with the sweet fragrance of grass. (Japanese: くさの においの かぜふく こうげんThe highlands where the grass-scented wind blows.)
In Pokémon Emerald, the Contest Hall is replaced with a Battle Tent themed after the Battle Palace in the Battle Frontier. A sign outside the building reads:
Battle Tent Verdanturf Site
"Feast Your Eyes on Battles!"
Wanda and most of her family live in the south side of the town. Wally is sent to live here in order to improve his health, but is only seen at Wanda's house after the player battles Wally in Mauville City. After the player obtains the Balance Badge, Wally will no longer be at Wanda's house.
In the house situated to the left of Wanda's house, there is a woman who rates the friendship of Pokémon.
In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, there is a little girl between the houses of Wanda and the friendship rater who has lost her Shroomish. She mentions it went missing somewhere near the sign. If the player reads the sign after talking to the girl, the Shroomish will come out from behind the sign and return to the girl. As a reward for finding it, the little girl will give the player the Intriguing Stone.
After defeating Stefano, May battled Timmy in the final round. Timmy proved to be a talented Coordinator and a tough opponent for May, as he had some good Contest combinations up his sleeve. This led May to lose a large amount of points. However, her Skitty managed to master the move Blizzard and use it against Dusclops, knocking it out. The threeContestjudges then called Battle Off and May was declared the winner, receiving the coveted Verdanturf Ribbon, her second Contest Ribbon overall.
