• Dream Mist Mission
Even though we've conquered the Pokemon Gym here at Striaton, our work in the city is not yet complete. After exiting the gym, you will be greeted by Fennel, who will lead you to her house saying that she is a friend of Professor Juniper's. Upstairs, she will introduce herself and present HM01 Cut! This HM will allow you to cut small trees outside of battle, revealing passages to new areas. Be careful using HMs, because they can only be forgotten by use of the Move Deleter in Mistralton City, which is quite a way off at the moment.
Our new friend Fennel will send us on a mission to retrieve some Dream Mist from the Dreamyard, which is where we saw the tree we were unable to cut down earlier. Teach one of your Pokemon HM01 Cut and head on your way. Stop by the Pokemon Center if you need to heal up.
• Double Plasma Trouble
Now we'll want to walk up to that fragile tree we saw when visiting the Dreamyard earlier, and we can interact with it now. After you've taught HM01 Cut to one of your Pokemon, walk up to the tree and interact with it. This will prompt you to cut down the tree, which will allow access deeper into the Dreamyard. After cutting down the tree and moving forward, Bianca will pay us another visit. She asks if you're also looking for a Pokemon, which means that Fennel must have sent her to do the same as us.
When moving deeper into the Dreamyard, you will hear the cry of Munna. This Munna will be sitting in the middle of Dreamyard by itself, and as you approach it the Pokemon will walk away from you, probably in surprise at seeing people there. It is at this time that you will be ambushed by two Team Plasma Grunts, who have come to do the same as you -- retrieve the Dream Mist from Munna. They will begin abusing the Pokemon. This is when Bianca will confront them, and the Team Plasma Grunts will issue a challenge against you, so I hope you're ready for a battle. This one is nothing to fret over, as the Pokemon you are facing here are less powerful than the ones you faced in the gym, and are in lesser numbers. The second grunt will challenge us after defeating the first one.
The grunts will go right back to abusing the Munna for the Dream Mist after you take care of them, though. Bianca will once again yell at them to stop, and this is when Ghetsis suddenly appears for the second time. But wait... another Ghetsis appears on the right, too? I guess that makes it the third appearance. The two Ghetsises... Ghetsi? will disappear and be replaced by one, and he will reprimand the grunts for their failure... but is this really Ghetsis?
After this odd event, Musharna will appear from around the corner. This is the evolution of Munna, and has the ability to project dreams into reality. That means - you guessed it - the event with Ghetsis was all an illusion. Fennel will rush in excitedly after the appearance of Musharna, and both Pokemon will retreat back into the Dreamyard. Bianca will explain the situation, and Fennel will go examine the item that Munna seemed to have left behind. This is the Dream Mist we came to collect, so our little task is completed.
Fennel will request you come back to her house, but first we're going to be doing a little collecting in the Dreamyard. Now that we've cut down the tree that blocked the path, we have access to all kinds of new items. Directly to your left where Musharna and Munna exited there is an item in the dark grass. Grab it to receive a Poke Ball. Next, walk through the grass in the top right and walk around the steps to climb up them. On the right side of the bridge is where a Repel is located, and you can also find a Potion on the right. Slightly hidden is another item that we can find by heading straight down after coming down the steps. It is located by the hole in the wall, and is a Paralyz Heal.
If you want to do some more collecting, there are a few Pokemon we haven't seen before located in the Dreamyard. There are a couple patches of grass in the area we are in, so have a ball.
• C-Gear and Dream World
Now we can return to Fennel's house to see what she's got for us. Heading upstairs, Fennel will jump in excitement and give you the C-Gear. The C-Gear is a replacement to the PokeGear you may have been familiar with in previous games. The C-Gear offers many different features, including the Online Pokemon Dream World. As Fennel is explaining the C-Gear's features, a girl named Amanita will come over and introduce herself as Fennel's little sister. She will give you a Pal Pad as a gift and explain how to add friends so you can communicate with them over Wi-Fi Connection. Amanita also happens to be the person who developed the Pokemon Storage System that you keep your Pokemon in on the PC.
Now we are prepared to exit Striaton City. Head to the garden on the west side of the city and pick up the Great Ball in the southwest. When approaching the gate, take a left and go up to the row of trees at the top. Walk straight to the water and turn so you are facing the tree. Interact with the tree to get a BalmMushroom. This mushroom can be sold for a high price to a collector on Route 5. After taking care of this, walk through the gate and onto Route 3.
