The Northern Desert

This is first area of the whole desert area. The player's character can enter this area after defeating Guardian Master Erin in the Shady Vale Training Hall and obtaining the Rock badge. Going only a few paces south, the player comes across a toll which must be crossed in order to go further down the desert and continue with the story of the game. This toll costs 100 Trainer Tokens. When asked the toll attendant, "What do I get for my tokens?" (referring to the toll), the toll attendant says "This toll unlocks the entire Desert for you, including three full zones full of trainers, two caves, a bunch of smaller quest zones, and allows you to get your Air Badge. This is a required toll if you wish to continue through the main storyline."
