Route 213 Pokémon, trainers and items

Route 213 is a medium-sized, coastal route that runs westwards from Hotel Grand Lake towards Pastoria City, which is where you're heading for your next Gym Badge.

There are a few items to nab, trainers to battle and Pokémon to catch, and a bit more of the route unlocks once you have access to Surf in the wild, which is just a little longer yet.

For now, head along the route and pop into Dr. Footstep's House, on the beach to the west, if you like. He'll give you a ribbon if your leading Pokémon leaves footsteps (i.e. if it doesn't levitate or fly) and it also has high happiness.

Finally, there is an extra part of the route that's accesible with Rock Climb, which you're still a fairly long way off from unlocking - it leads to a couple of handy items though, so make a note and come back when you have both that and Surf, to collect much more!

There is also a Honey Tree on this route, which has its own Honey Tree Pokémon spawn list.
