Hey. Blazios, not a bad picture. But yeah: just keep walking under the Cycling Road, and every step you take, try and go up. Eventually you will go through. Be prepared, I believe you need Rock Smash or Strength (don't know which) to go far and get Earthquake.
I agree with a lot of the other people, and this has helped me a lot: the Battle Island place, especially Stark Mountain and Route 127. They are basically the same, except you can't get lost on Route 127, and don't need Rock Smash to go far.
I voted for Poliwhirl because both Poliwrath and Politoed look cool, but I would also vote for Snorunt, because Glalie is one of my favorite Pokemon. And not only did you forget Gloom, you forgot Nincada.
I have to say, the final puzzle in the Sunyshore Gym took me literally 10 minutes. But battle wise, I had the most trouble with Fantina. If I didn't get lucky with a Critical Hit, I would of had to battle her about 3 more times.
Yesterday I went to Wayward Cave, caught Gible and got Earthquake, taught it to my Onix (that was a mistake), and won the badge at the Sunyshore Gym. I took about 10 minutes trying to figure out the last puzzle to get to the Gym Leader...
Like in my sig:
Ruby: Swampert, Shedinja, Glalie, Magneton, Magcargo, and Rayquaza
Emerald: Swampert, Sceptile, Blaziken, Gardevoir, Stantler, and Rayquaza
Leaf Green: Venasaur, Pikachu, Kadabra, Graveler, Primeape, and Raticate
I may be weird, but I never liked Roy. I thought we had enough swordsmen and when I unlocked Roy, it just seemed like "Oh great, one more guy trying to be the boy with the blade". Also, I thought Jigglypuff added a nice challenge to the game and Pichu was a cool just-for-fun character. Please...
