I had reached another dead end, there was no place for me to go, no way I could cross the mass of water before me by myself. Not without a pokémon capable of using “Surf” and definitely not without the move itself, one I had not yet learned.
There were no training spots and no more trainers walking about, just sand, water and a large sign with directions… well, technically there was only one piece of information.
An arrow pointing to the path I had just taken getting here indicated: “Route 118, Mauville City”. I was surprised that not even a hint was given as to what was on the other side of the lake but right now it mattered not, I had to go back to the city and make room for the new pokémon I had been offered.
