Ravaged Path Pokémon, trainers and items

Now you've unlocked the ability to use Rock Smash in the wild, dead back to Jubilife City through Oreburgh Gate, and then go north onto Route 204 again towards Ravaged Path.

Just as you're leaving the city, you'll need to battle a pair of Team Galactic Grunts, who are causing more bother yet again. Once that's done, it's on with the rest of your journey.

You can continue northwards through the tunnel by smashing the rocks (interact with them to smash them) and heading east.

To the west (left) inside the cave, there's another item and a body of water, which you can't cross without Surf - grab the item then go east and exit, to Route 204 North.
