Just as wet as the southern wetlands, the marsh is only different in two aspects; mud and smell. Visitors are very likely to get dirty quick as they wander (and often get stuck) in the muddy marsh lands. Very few areas remain relatively dry, but can be a hotspot for some Pokémon escaping the muck. The water in the ponds here tends to be somewhat swampy, forcing Safari caretakers to install fountains for the wildlife to safely drink from. Part of the marsh's smell is contributed to by this swampy water, but some of the residents are also to blame. Fishing can be done here as well. Travelling west leads to the mountain, while returning south leads to the wetlands.
