Inside this dark sinister forest lies the pokemon shrine which was built to honour the great guardian of the forest, rumoured to be a grass pokemon. You are risking the unknown in this forest not to see the shrine but to simply reach Goldenrod City which lies just north of the forest fringe.
The canopy is so thick that it is consistently dark in Ilex forest despite it only being the afternoon. The cold damp weather brought by the Slowpoke swathes the trees in an unusually dense fog. What sort of spooky pokemon lurk in the forest depths you wonder?
The gravelly dirt track cuts a clear course through the heart of the the trees yet like at the start of your journey, you are still more adventurous and prepared for danger than ordinary trainers. Of course you would dare to meander off into the darkness if it meant finding rare pokemon!
