The NPC area where you get TM51 Roost (Pokémon Platinum)

The only copy of TM51 Roost is given to you by a female NPC on a hill on Route 210, located immediately northeast of Solaceon Town’s north exit.

You can access this TM as soon as you’re able to reach Route 210.

By using your Bicycle in fourth gear, you can simply ride through the narrow path in the grass and up the muddy slope.

Once on top of the hill, follow the easternmost path, descending the right-hand staircase.
