Viridian Forest follows on from Route 2 South in your quest through Pokémon Let's Go's main story.

Below, we'll cover any and all of the obtainable Pokémon, item locations, trainers and their squads that you might encounter in the area, as well as walking you through any key steps of the story along the way.

We've also opted to break out walkthrough pages down into sections, referring to each of your visits to a given location, seeing as you often backtrack or revisit various places in your quest to become Champion! Where applicable, we'll split our page into one section for each visit, and of course if there are any, clearly mark any spoilers, too!

For more like this, be it specific systems explainers or walkthrough pages on more locations, head back to our main Pokémon Let's Go walkthrough and guide hub.

Viridian Forest can seem a little complicated, but actually it's nice and simple to navigate once you know where you're going. To get out the other side, head to the far right from the entrance.

pokemon_lets_go_viridian_forest_2

Then go up - or north - on the right hand side, and keep right at every opportunity and you'll soon find yourself walking left along the top of the forest. Once you get to the far left side, the exit will be up the top (again, to the north) of you.

That's everything here for now, so continue on to Route 2 North and very shortly after that Pewter City, for the next steps in your quest, or cycle back to our main Pokémon Let's Go walkthrough and guide hub for all the other pages we have like this.
