Route 214 Pokémon, trainers and items
Route 214 is a path that heads south from Veilstone City towards Valor Lakefront, but interestingly it also goes in a kind of loop. If you want to collect everything, head south through the grassy part then loop back on yourself through the rocky part, until you reach the entrance to Ruin Maniac Cave, back at the top.

Ruin Maniac Cave Pokémon, trainers and items
Ruin Maniac Cave is a small cave with a single item in it and a single man, the Ruin Maniac who's obsessed with Unown. When you've caught some, talk to him and he'll have made more progress on his quest to dig all the way through to the Solaceon Ruins
But most importantly, talk to him when you've caught all of the different forms available. At this point he'll have worked his way through to a new section, a room that contains the ? and ! forms of Unown - the only place to get them in the game!
More details on Unown and Solaceon Ruins can be found on our Solaceon Ruins walkthrough page.

After you're done here and on Route 214, it's onwards to the next location: Valor Lakefront.
