Twirl Forest is a dense forest located in northwestern Johto. It can be accessed from the magnet train in Goldenrod City after getting five gym badges.
Twirl Forest consists of a number of confusing twists and turns that can easily send a unsuspecting person back to the start of the maze. Those who make it through the make will be challenged by an uncatchable Scizor at level 10x the number of badges. Behind the Scizor a Lucky Egg can be found.
The cave on the section with the train will take you to a small maze. Directly in front of of the entrance to this section is a split, take the left fork to another cave with a Super Potion behind it.
This leads to a forked section. The right fork has a Max Repel in front of it. Proceed through the left side for another forked path. This time the forks have ledges to jump down, the right side has a Nugget after the ledge and the path further in.
This is another one way entrance, check behind it for a Max Repel. The path once again forks in this section, take the left one to find the cave to proceed, go past it to find a Smoke Ball after hopping a ledge. You can then continue past a second cave to make it back to the last split.
Following the correct cave will take you to a small section with a fork, taking the right fork will bring you out the left fork of an identical map, taking the right fork again will bring you in to the north side of a map split into two sections(the south section might have been reached earlier when taking a wrong path). Proceed to the opposite cave to reach the destination.
An uncatchable Scizor will appear in this section. Behind the tree will be a Lucky Egg. A return trip with a Mega Bracelet after the Scizor has been defeated will reveal a Scizorite. Going back through the most recent cave will take you down a spiraling path to another cave which will take you back to the entrance.
