I finally entered the Eterna Forest, and I met Cheryl inside. She wanted help crossing the forest, and I agreed to help her out. We traveled through the tall grass there, and I managed to train my Pokemon by grinding in the tall grass, since I didn't have to worry about healing. We eventually ran into some tough trainers in the forest, but we managed to take them down with some teamwork. We continued the pattern of training in the tall grass and battling random trainers until we reached the end of Eterna Forest. Cheryl left and I left as well. I battled some of the last trainers along the route there, and I saved the game before entering Eterna City.
