Route 3

Route 3 is to the west of Motostoke and you’ll need to cross it in order to reach the Galar Mine, which is another obstacle along the way to your eventual goal of reaching Turffield.

It’s a fairly straightforward route, thankfully, with a few Trainers to fight and some new Pokémon to encounter.

Short Version

To speed up completion of the walkthrough, some pages will be condensed until a “short version” until there’s time to go through and write a more detailed guide through. You’ll still find any important information, any boss fights, as well as all items I found during my first playthrough cataloged below, but it won’t be as in-depth as the fully-completed version will be.

Short Version

  • Head through the route and make your way to the Galar Mine.
  • You’ll run into Sonia near the start of the route and she’ll give you the Escape Rope.
  • The path is very straightforward, so you shouldn’t have any trouble getting lost. Just remember that you’re generally going west and then north.
  • Talk to the lady outside of the mine and she’ll heal up your Pokémon.

Items on the Route

  • Hidden Burn Heal near the start of the route, west through the grass by the cliff with a TM on top of it.
  • Escape Rope from Sonia (mentioned above).
  • Head south after talking to Sonia to reach a Berry Tree as well as TM37 Beat Up.
  • Super Potion in the field of grass directly south of the Galar Mine entrance.
