Route 12 is a desert-grassland crossover route that connects Aredia City and Route 13. Starting from the exit of Aredia City, there is a small portion of desert land. Afterwards, the rest of the route is covered by mild grass and high terrains. HM6 Rock Smash is required in order to continue progress on the route, while HM1 Cut is also necessary for reaching Nature's Den. The overall terrain of the route is slightly complicated, yet a wide range of Pokémon can be found.
Nature's Den Entrance
Just after the 3 cracked rocks, there is a lower, branched path to the east before going up the ramp to battle Picnicker Sandy. Player will need to shatter another cracked rock and also cut down a couple of small trees on his or her way. Turning around at the end, the player will find a cave entrance leading inside Nature's Den, while a Rock Climb slope leads the player to TM Steel Wing and a shortcut to Erik's MooMoo Farm.
Erik's MooMoo Farm
Featuring the co-founder of Roblox — Erik Cassel, Erik's MooMoo Farm is located in the open areas of trees and grassland. It can easily be identified as a gigantic sign with the farm's name is shown in front of it. A tree is planted in front of the farm, with Erik's hat and a flower under the tree in memorial of Erik Cassel. There are also a few Miltank around the farm. However, the farm is not ready to sell Moomoo Milk yet, so the players have try their luck at getting bottles of Moomoo Milk in Hobo's Lucky Lotto, Anthian City - Shopping District, or via the Wild Miltank on this route.
Note: Rarity levels are estimations according to this scale and might be subject to changes due to different encounter assessment results, unless supported by official encounter rates, which are listed in red under the rarity level if known. If there are any Pokémon with low catch rates, the possibility to flee or requirement of gaining happiness to evolve, recommended Poké Balls for that Pokémon will be shown with the corresponding bag sprite under the Pokémon's name.
