I visited the local Pokemon Center after finishing stuff at the Olivine Gym, then I bought some items at the Poke Mart and I went north to Route 39. I headed into Route 38 after that and I arrived in Ecruteak City. I headed south and I visited National Park. I kept going south until I reached Goldenrod City and I visited some places around there just for fun. I then left some Pokemon at the Day Care Center on Route 34. I went back to Ecruteak City via Fly and I headed east to Mt. Mortar. I explored some of the cavern when I arrived, but I left shortly afterward since I still couldn't access the areas that required Waterfall. I Surfed across the ponds on Route 42 until I arrived in Mahogany Town. I saved the game there.
