Route 35

Route 35

Route 35 is a short, pleasant path that leads northward from Goldenrod City. The main road leads to the National Park, while a smaller trail acts as a shortcut to Route 36.

Mail Delivery

Speak to the guard in the southern gate, and he asks for a favor. Deliver his Spearow, named Kenya, and the piece of Mail it holds to his friend on Route 31. It is intended for the man dozing near the pond there. Complete the delivery, and he wakes up just long enough to give you TM50 (Nightmare). Return here and speak to the guard afterward to receive an HP Up as a reward.

Attack of the Dragonflies!

Defeat Bug Catcher Arnie near the thin tree in the northeast, then be sure to trade phone numbers with him. He will call occasionally to alert you about a swarm of a certain Pokémon species. Yanma are usually difficult to find, but will be more likely to appear along Route 35 for a short time. The swarm only lasts until midnight, so be quick!

National Park

National Park

The National Park is a beautiful recreational space between Route 35 to the south and Route 36 to the east. A haven for Bug and Grass Pokémon, a Bug-Catching Contest is held here every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

Bug-Catching Contest

There is no entry fee for the Bug-Catching Contest. Anyone may enter once per day, every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

To compete, Trainers must catch the single best Bug-type Pokémon they can find. To do this, Trainers are given 20 Park Balls and are only allowed to use a single Pokémon from their party. The others remain with the contest officials until the competition is over. Any Pokémon caught will be recorded in the Pokédex, but only one Pokémon may be kept to be judged. The Pokémon selected to be judged may be kept after the competition.

The competition ends when 20 minutes have passed, all Park Balls have been used, or the Trainer blacks out, leaves the park, or chooses to quit. After that, the judging will occur, in which Trainers are scored on their skills of capturing rare and powerful Pokémon.

Route 36

Route 36

Route 36 is a densly wooded path that branches off in several directions. It connects the National Park and Route 35 in the west with the Ruins of Alph to the south, Violet City to the east, and Route 37 to the north.

An Inconvenient Tree

The odd tree mentioned by the women in Goldenrod City's flower shop can be found in the middle of the route, blocking travel from every direction. Despite its tree-like appearance, this oddity actually tries to avoid water. Use the SquirtBottle to splash a bit of water on it, and it attacks! It turns out to be a Sudowoodo, a rare Pokémon that is more similar to a rock than a tree.

Route 37

Route 37

Route 37 is a short road that leads north from Route 36 to Ecruteak City. A secluded grove of Apricorn trees stands on the east side.
