Welcome to the Sinnoh Region!
Before you can leave this town you will need to go find Barry at his house.
After doing so you then head north to route 201 where you will meet Professor Rowan and receive your first Pokémon.
Barry will then battle you and you will end up back at home where mom will give you running shoes.
Once you are ready. Head back to route 201 where you will meet up with barry again and check out the lake.
When that has been completed head on to Sandgem Town to meet Professor Rowan.
As soon as you enter the town, Dawn will take you to Professor Rowan’s lab where you will receive the Pokédex.
She will also explain to you the Pokémon Center and Pokémart as you get close to them.
Before you can continue forward you must return back home to mom. Barry’s mom will also give you a parcel to pass on to Barry, since he ran off again.
Once all that is done you can carry on north of Sandgem Town and on to Jubilife.
Upon entering the City, Dawn will greet you and you will meet Looker.
Head to the Trainer’s School to give Barry the parcel his mom gave you for him.
Next talk to the man in the street who will send you to collect 3 Pokétech coupons from the clowns. Upon completing this task you will receive a fishing rod.
Once this is done you can move on by exiting the City from the east side where you will meet up with Barry to battle.

When you are ready head back to Jubilife City and head north towards Floaroma Town.
Lots of flowers here, quite pretty. A few things to do here before we can move on.
First head to the Valley Windworks to the east of the town and defeat the grunt. Then back to town and head north to get the key to the Valley Windworks. Once you have that enter the Valley Windworks and defeat every grunt as well as the Galactic Commander.

Next, we will find the 4th gym leader, Maylene. She uses Fighting type Pokémon. Once you defeat her you will receive the Cobble Badge.
Upon exiting her gym you will meet Dawn who will require your help before you are able to move on. When you have finished helping her exit Veilstone via the south exit and keep heading south until you reach the beach, from there head along the waterfront following the path west until you reach Pastoria City.

Here is where Crasher Wake’s gym is, he uses Water type Pokémon.
Once you have defeated him, follow the story which will lead you back to where the Psyducks are blocking the path. Cynthia will give you what you need to pass them and move on heading north and then west.
Your main goal is in the center of town. Once you are done you will be given HM Surf and you are able to move on to Canalave City. To get there either head west from Celestic onto route 211 or tp straight to Jubilife.
