Well, I like this map. You've imitated Game Freak style very well, and while this map has empty parts, you've added the flowers and sandy paths as decoration. Great usage of empty space. :D
I don't understand the purpose of the rightmost patch of grass, given the fact that it doesn't go anywhere. I'd suggest putting an item or event there (unless you already have). There are a few shading errors with the trees, you'll notice. And last, although this is not the Tile/Palette Rating Thread, I'd suggest making the Headbutt trees a tad lighter.

Again no particular purpose but I am sure I can throw it into Rumble Rock some where... sorry about spamming maps here just trying to get back into mapping (=

Well, this is another good map. Unlike the map above, which is mapped in Game Freak style, this one has a natural feel, which I like. The only major problem is the massive amount of tall grass in this map. I mean, most routes have at most maybe five large patches of tall grass. Yours has twenty-four. There. Is. Too. Much. Tall. Grass. Besides that, there's a overlaps error on two of the trees in the top right corner.

Comment: This is my second time doing an indoor map, not really good at it but tried by best.
Funny, this has got to be the first indoor map I've seen on this thread. To the best of my knowledge, there isn't any real standard of what makes a good indoor map. In my opinion, this is a good map.
