From the Pokemon Center at the entrance into Ballonlea, head left and up the stairs. Go into the first house. Inside, you’ll find two little girls and a portly gentleman in a brown vest. Speak to the gentleman. Yup, that’s Frank. What the heck is going on, I’m sure you’re wondering. Well, all will be explained, worry not. Listen to what Frank has to say, and you’ll receive a Choice Scarf for your troubles. It boosts the Speed of the Pokemon that holds it, but only allows the use of one move.

If you want to find out what’s going on, as we did, well, just go back to Hammerlocke and the castle where you first met Paula. I’m not gonna tell you what happens to avoid unnecessary spoilers. I am just gonna say that, after you examine her exact spot, you’ll find a scrap of Reaper Cloth. The description reads: “A cloth imbued with horrifyingly strong spiritual energy. It’s loved by a certain Pokemon.” You can kinda guess just based on that, right?
