Part 1- Beginning your journey! (Vaniville Town- Aquacorde Town)
Part 2- Catching Your First Few Pokemon! (Aquacorde Town- Santalune Forest)
Part 3- First gym battle! (Route 3- Santalune City) (COMING SOON)
I know that the walkthrough updates for this site is coming up really slowly, and I do apologise for that. This post is part of the long planned walkthrough for the games Pokemon X and Y, and will contain major spoilers. If you do not want to disrupt your gameplay experience, do not read on.
The previous time we stopped, I had finally had a ‘brief’ experience of riding a pokemon, and have had my first pokemon battle. Today, this installment will start off from there, all the way till Route 3, so expect a long long walkthrough.
As soon as you have finished your business at home, it’s time to bid farewell to your new home. Run through the gates yet again to Route 1, and get to Aquacorde City. This is where the guide begins…
NOTE: BEFORE THE GUIDE BEGINS, DO NOTE THAT ALL DOWSING MACHINE ITEMS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THIS GUIDE. THOSE WILL BE WRITTEN ON A SEPARATE POST.
Aquacorde Town is quite a small town, to begin with. Back at the table and chairs, though towards the right (not the left, where you had your friendly chat with your new friends), a female is standing there. She is just a useless NPC, so just answer yes or no to her question ‘Do you love pokemon’ if you are there. Before we get deep in city exploration, let’s have some minor tidbits to enjoy!
Aquacorde Town- Water and civilization in harmony.
Noticeable Landmarks- None, just basic live in a small town
Population- 15 OUTSIDE- 6
Look at the image next to these words. You see a guy next to the public? Yup, you can find him next to the Potion Store at the bottom right of the fountain, so talk to him to obtain a free potion. You don’t need it if you are careful, but nobody knows what you might face… The woman next to the building which will allow you free treatment to your pokemon’s wound, AKA the Pokemon Center, will tell you about the boutique in the next city. If you can see, the bottom right store sells potions exclusively. Unfortunately, you only get to purchase the basic potions at the start, so buy it if you want, or otherwise ignore it for now. The building next to it, like previously mentioned, allows to heal your pokemon for free. The photo spot above the shops are closed for the time being, so give it a skip for now. At the other side of the fountain, there is yet another stall selling Pokeballs exclusively. They only have the basic Pokeball for now, so grab it and leave. However, I suggest not getting it, due to the events which will occur in the next route… That’s all there is in the city, really, so just cross the bridge to head to Route 2. Before that, the hiker tries to warn you that the road ahead of you is dangerous, but well, you have a Pokemon… Let’s begin our journey proper!
I still remember the good old days where you step out into the wild grass trying to catch your first pokemon, and you find a Pidgey or Rattata. Well, Rattatas are gone for good in this game, but Pidgeys, and your other first gen favorites Caterpie and Weedle, are back at the start. It definitely brings back a lot of nostalgia… Let’s look at what there is in the grass first.
NOTE: IN THIS WALKTHROUGH, TO MAKE IT MORE ON A PERSONAL LEVEL BY LETTING IT BE MY CAPTURING DIARY, ALL POKEMON CAPTURED BY ME WILL BE BOLDED. SOMETIMES, A REPORT ON MY POKEMON’S LEVEL MIGHT ALSO APPEAR.
Route 2 Pokemon
Bunnelby (Normal)– LVL2-3
Fletchling (Normal/Flying)– LVL2-3
Scatterbug (Bug)– LVL2-3
Zigzagoon (Normal)– LVL3-4
Pidgey (Normal/Flying)– LVL3
Weedle (Bug/Poison) (Pokemon X)- LVL3-4
Caterpie (Bug) (Pokemon Y)- LVL3-4
If you notice, this route has all the standards from back in Generation 1, plus Bunnelby, which is the ‘Rattata’ of this generation, but having a dual typing when it evolves, a Fletchling, a really powerful bird you should keep, and Scatterbug, the bug of the game. The reviews of each pokemon will come at a later date, after I have finished the general walkthrough for the game, so please check back again. I don’t know whether you want to devote your time to training in the tall grass patches, but I usually train up at the first route to a level which makes me feel safe to venture further without facing any trouble. However, one thing to note- unless you are having trouble beating the first gym, which is bug type, you do not have to go through the trouble of training any pokemon from this route yet- apart from being time consuming, you have much better options later on, and the game allows you to get a Exp. Share right after the first gym. Instead, just speed through this route, there really isn’t much to it. Step a bit past the first patch of grass, and Shauna, along with Serena/Callum will stop you. They will basically teach you how to catch a pokemon, in this case, Bunnelby. Right after the tutorial is done, you get 10 Pokeballs for free! You can either capture your first few pokemon, on your path to become a pokemon master and earn some exp. on the way, or you can simply prepare for your first ever trainer battle… Before that, if your health is low, turn back quickly and head to the ‘Pokemon Center’.
Zigzagoon LVL5 (Normal)
51 EXP Points
TIPS: Easy target, just use any physical move and the opponent should die.
Now, onwards to Santalune Forest!
Is it just me, or does this layout and the pokemon in this forest really similar to those of Viridian Forest back in Kanto? Here’s the pokemon in the forest:
Santalune Forest Pokemon:
Weedle (Bug/Poison) Pokemon X-LVL2-3 Pokemon Y-LVL2
Kakuna (Bug/Poison) (Pokemon X) LVL4
Caterpie (Bug) Pokemon X Pokemon X-LVL2 Pokemon Y-LVL2-3
Metapod (Bug) (Pokemon Y) LVL4
Scatterbug (Bug) LVL2-3
Fletchling (Normal/Flying) LVL4
Pikachu (Electric) LVL3-4
Pansear (Fire) LVL4
Panpour (Water) LVL4
Pansage (Grass) LVL4
What do you expect from forests other than a wave of bugs? If you want to complete the pokedex, it might be a good idea to catch all these creatures now, but if you just want to have a strong team accompanying you, you can totally ignore everything on this list other than perhaps Fletchling. Pikachu might be adorable, but really, it isn’t that good, even when it becomes Raichu (No offense here, Pika Pika). If you would like to protect yourself with the other elemental types (Grass, Fire, Water), you can perhaps catch the three pokemon Pansear, Panpour and Pansage, though you can wait a bit more to capture more powerful pokemon. As previously mentioned, reviews on each and every pokemon will only appear after the core of the walkthrough has been completed, so please bare with us.
When you head into the forest, Shauna catches up with you, and as friends do, she decides to follow you. She is abundant on all kinds of potions though, as she can heal your pokemon as long as you talk to her. That makes it rather safe to be in this forest. When you enter, you shall be here:
Take a left turn and keep left. Walk past the grass patch on the left all the way till you reach the dead end. You can find an Antidote here, so just leave it in your bag. Just next to the patch is a pathway leading north. Head up, and turn left- you will find yet another Potion- the third you find in the game. Head back to where you started, and turn right this time round. Nearby, you shall find another Potion on the pathway- just pick it up, as you never know when you need it. Well, keep going east and you will eventually see Serena/Callum, Trevor and Tierno running around doing their business training and battling. Just leave them aside, and head up and run past them. Tierno will begin battling a youngster, but there really isn’t much you can do to help him, so ignore him. After running north a bit more past Tierno, Shauna suddenly runs into the grass and finds a Paralyze Heal magically. Up north from that, you will find a U-turn- ignore it, unless you really want to try avoiding the trainer. Let’s battle:
Scatterbug LVL3 25EXP
Fletchling LVL3 36EXP
Tips: Just use any move and you should be able to beat him.
Right after him, the path is pretty straight forward, so it is a straight way out. Serena/Callum stops you, just to give you 1 Pokeball. 1 Only! If you were a capturing enthusiast, you would find that you are out of pokeballs anyway, and you can’t possibly capture every pokemon you find till Santalune City till you head back to get a pokeball. Right after you run forward, another trainer gets in the way:
Pikachu LVL5 120EXP
Tips: Just hope it doesn’t use Thundershock if you have a Froakie. Not sure if it can use it, but just take precautions.
Go down, and head towards the right on the small lane. Wait, isn’t that another trainer standing in the way?
Weedle LVL2 16EXP
Bunnelby LVL4 39EXP
Tips: Nothing. Just a piece of cake.
Run past her to get yet another free Pokeball lying on the floor. Head back towards the main road, and continue by heading west. Another potion lies in wait for you there. This should be your last patch of grass before leaving the forest. Until…
You saw the pictures and you understand. It’s time to leave this forest, so if you have any unsettled business here, you can do everything you want before leaving.
Here’s my current team I am training anyway:
