Things to Do Before Getting to the 3rd Gym

Get a Water, Ground or Rock-type Pokemon

The third Gym Leader, Kabu, uses 3 Fire-type Pokemon. It's a good idea to go ahead and prepare a Pokemon who can take him on. Water, Ground and Rock, the three primary weaknesses of Fire, are your best options.

Drednaw is especially recommended

The Water/Rock-type Pokemon Drednaw can be found in the 2nd Mine area of the game. With its initially high level, and starting off already knowing Rock Tomb, Drednaw will be a welcome addition to your team.
