Spoiler warning! This article contains plot details about events that occur later in the game.
After the reborn city restoration project. the Blacksteam Factory is transformed into the Blacksteam Shelter. Go to the bottom left of the building and find the man who will bet 1000 on a coin flip. beat him atleast 7 times in a row until he's out of cash (Soft reset or use his pattern of going the opposite choice from the last one). he will ask you to return 7000 and he will give you TM17 Protect (finally).
During clear or sunny days, a Budew is precariously walking on the wall near the gate to the desert. If you have a Rose Incense, the Budew will catch the scent and leap off to join you. The Budew will have Sweet Co. OT which means it will gain the boosted experience.
To the left of the wall is the location of the thief who stole your Pokémon purchased at the Grand Hall. Upon confronting him, he demands 500 before giving it back. Paying this amount results in him revealing that he and the fisherman that sold the Pokémon actually worked together to scam unsuspecting trainers, and dare you to defeat them to retrieve your purchase.
...But after beating them, the street rat admits that a kid stole it from him on his way home, and he can't give it back. The search continues...
This event is initiated by speaking to the woman inside the house by the fountain and listening to her fear over kidnappings. After this, enter the formerly-empty house next to Hotshot Roger, where you will find two suspicious people discussing plans for liberating a Pokémon, who flee upon discovering the player eavesdropping. Return to the woman's house, where the duo is attempting to take the woman's Igglybuff. When you interrupt them, they recite an anthem detailing their motives and attack.
The duo flee upon defeat, but the woman is still left extremely frightened by their intrusion, and begs you to take her Igglybuff to ensure its safety. The Igglybuff obtained can have Wish, Perish Song or Misty Terrain as an Egg Move. Perish Song is especially helpful in later parts of the game.
This Pokémon cannot be obtained after beating Corey's Gym.
At night, the house north of Mosswater Factory (house left of the street sign) will be having a problem with outage. On the right side inside of this house there will be a Pokémon that is causing problems; either a Joltik or a Grubbin. If the player has a PokéSnax in a bag, they can use it to battle and capture it.
The girl first seen in front of the Grand Hall is still struggling with either her disobedient Snubbull or Stufful in the northwest-most apartment building. After acquiring two badges, she offers the Pokemon to the player. Snubbull will come with either Heal Bell or Close Combat in its moveset.
