If you've been following the walkthrough, you may have already entered Route 32 in attempt to capture a Mareep. This Route is pretty challenging, as the wild Pokemon are stronger, the trainers are stronger, and there's a lof of them. To make it even worse, there's a dungeon at the end that we'll have to navigate through to finally make it to Azalea Town. It's recommended you at least pick up a few Potions, if not some other helpful status healing items, before tackling this route.
Heading through the route, you'll find a man standing shortway through the route. If you have entered before in an attempt to get through, you'll know he stops you and recommends you try the gym in Violety City. Now that we have the Zephyr Badge, he'll give us a Miracle Seed as a reward for our hard work in Violet City. It raises the power of Grass-Type moves by 50%, so it can make quite a difference.
Head past the man through the grass, where you'll find Youngster Albert. He's avoidable, but considering the way he looks around, it may be a bit difficult. It's not a tough battle, anyway, so you might as well.
From him you can head one of two ways: left or down. Honestly, left has no benefits at all, really. There are a few small items to find, but they're hardly worth going out of your way for. Heading down has one trainer, but she's staring at a wall and will only fight if you talk to her. She's very easily avoidable, but will give you her phone number for rematches in the future, should you win.
Continue heading south and you'll find a staircase. This is where the route really splits, as to the right, you'll have lots of trainer battles, however south will have lots of tall grass, one trainer battle, and a few items. It's a matter of opinion which way you go, most of the battles to the right are very easy and avoidable, while south has the useful TM 09, Bullet Seed. If you choose to head right, the Fisherman looking up towards the end of the bridge will offer you his phone number for rematches if you defeat him.
• Fishing Lessons
Finally, after one last trainer, you'll reach a Pokemon Center. Inside you can talk to a fisherman, who will tell you about fishing. He'll offer you his Old Rod. If you've played any of the past games, you'll know that the Old Rod is pretty much useless compared to the others, as it only catches Magikarp. However, it can catch (very rarely) a few other water types. Also in the Center is a man who will tell you how someone can turn Apricorns into rare PokeBalls. Now you're starting to see their value, aren't ya? He'll give you two free samples, Lure Balls, perfect for use with our newly acquired Old Rod.
Just past the Pokemon Center is another trainer. You can easily avoid him, but you may run into him by mistake. After the battle, you may want to consider healing at the Pokemon Center again. Before entering Union Cave, there's a hidden Great Ball just over the ledge to the left of the Entrance.
