Motostoke Riverbank

Along the eastern edge of Motostoke in the Wild Area lies a bridge connecting to the northern half of the Wild Area, starting with an area called the Motostoke Riverbank. A person nearby warns you about the stronger Pokémon across the bridge, so heed that warning, as if you’re at a low level, you won’t be able to catch any Pokémon, let alone fight them or even run away.

Bringing along some emergency Poké Dolls or bringing a Pokémon with Run Away for its ability such as Nickit is a good idea if you choose to go exploring early, because there are several great items inside.
