Ilex Forest (Japanese: ウバメのもり Ubame Forest) is a dense forest located in southern Johto, directly west of Azalea Town. The forest's trees are so close together that all light is blocked out, and the forest seems to be in a perpetual night. Directly north is Route 34.
Ilex Forest is a winding path through dense trees connecting Azalea Town. There are many patches of long grass on the ground where low-leveled Pokémon can be found. Travelers can enter at either end with no trouble at all, but to pass through to the other side they must be able to use the move Cut outside of battle.
When the player enters the forest, the only way to proceed through the next section of the forest is to return a runaway Farfetch'd for the regional cutting master's son, thus receiving HM 1 (Cut) as a reward, allowing the player to clear the path from a cuttable tree. This is done by using the forest's layout to chase it back, using a looped path on the far eastern side, as well as a cliff area. In order to tactically return the runaway Farfetch'd to its owner, the player must corner it and lead it into the direction of the owner. Once the Farfetch'd are returned, HM 1 (Cut) will be obtained.
The shrine is a small structure located in the Ilex Forest. It can be found in the deepest part of Ilex Forest, situated right in the center of the forest itself.
The forrest has only one permanent resident: the man who gives you the headbutt TM standing in the center of the forrest.
