The beginning of this route places the player next to a berry plot. Further down past the berries, the player comes across the Trick House. However, unfortunately for those expecting a nostalgic return of a feature from past games, the Trick House never opens in Pokémon Zeta and Omicron.
After a bit of walking past the Trick House, the route becomes obscured by a sandstorm. Players who don't want to rely on Rock, Steel, or Ground-type Pokémon should work their way to the top of rock formation in the center of the desert-like area to pick up the Go-Goggles there. In Zeta/Omicron this item now allows the player to dispel all weather effects in the area, making this area much easier to travel through. After coming to the point where the paths surrounding the large rock formation in the middle merge, the player should save and heal their Pokémon if possible before arriving at Agassiz Town and the new challenges that await. Despite the desert area being quite large, there are no wild Pokémon that appear in the sand.
