Glimwood Tangle isn't particularly big, but there is a number of other paths to take and items to find. Let us direct you through to make sure you find everything possible, and interact with all the mushrooms you pass to light up the way.

From the entrance, walk forward till you hit the first T-junction. Take a left and you'll find Cook Derek, hiding in the bushes.

After defeating Derek, take the path to the south and at the end, you'll find a bag of Bright Powder. Head back to the first junction and take the right path until you find a Big Root item, then follow the path round — avoiding the Duo trainers for a second — and you'll find TM24 Snore at the end. Now you can take on the two trainers stood throwing balls in the air.

After defeating the loving couple, walk up the path near where you found the Snore TM, and you'll find two Hyper Potions. Below that is another trainer.

Head left from Madame Judy and follow the path all the way round to the top of the forest to find TM56 U-turn. After this, you've found everything there is to see in Glimwood Tangle, so you can head north to Ballonlea.
