Forest Pass is the route which Trainers can traverse between Glenwood Town and Chocco Town. Pokémon on this route are generally weak Normal type Pokémon, but if you are lucky you can encounter the elusive Ralts. The path from Glenwood is a windy "S" pattern with a few patches of grass, followed by a bridge over a small pond to get to Chocco Town. There are a few ledge that alway the player to make shortcuts to either town.
After the player recieves their starter Pokémon, if the player tries to go east of Glenwood Town, an elderly man will warn the player of a rampid wild Pikachu. Once the player defeats the Pikachu, they learn that the Pikachu was attacking the player's own parents. As a reward, the player's mother gives them a pair of running shoes and their father gives them an exp. share.
Then, as the player progresses they encounter a mysterious spiky haired trainer named Percy to which they battle.
