( s1. INTRODUCTION | ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: )


`~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
Hello! This is the second FAQ that I am publishing to GameFAQs (and to any
other sites whom have received my permission to use this FAQ). I have been
super enthusiastic about the new Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl games that
were released in Japan recently since the day they came out. I have been
working dilligently on trying to acquire as much information as possible about
the two games, and now, I have decided that it is time to work on writing a
good Walkthrough for the two games.
Now that the games are released in English, I will be going through and trying
to localize all of the names and stuff to keep them current with the English
version, instead of the Japanese version. I may miss a few things here and
there, so if you see a funny name that doesn't sound familiar, it means I just
missed it while going through and changing things.
THIS IS NOT A SPOILER-FREE WALKTHROUGH! In fact, this Walkthrough will have as
many spoilers as possible!
You will not find any pictures (for obvious reasons) or stats on the Pokemon
in this guide.
For pictures of the new Pokemon, you can check out:
http://pokemon.marriland.com/diamond_pearl/new_pictures/
Also, since making a text-based Pokedex out of my existing Pokedex just isn't
time-sensible, you can view my D/P Pokedex on my site, at the following page:
http://pokemon.marriland.com/diamond_pearl/pokedex/
And since I'm already going link crazy, a video walkthrough - for those of you
that like seeing stuff in action - is being worked on, as are tutorials on how
to catch certain Pokemon or do certain things. Check 'em out here:
http://pokemon.marriland.com/diamond_pearl/videos/
Lastly, a stylized Walkthrough, written by me and improved from this one, can
be found here:
http://www.mycheats.com/view/superguide/17032/pokemon_diamond_pearl_/
With that being said, please do enjoy the Walkthrough I have written. I hope
it helps you out through the game, or, if you do not own the game and merely
wish to take a peek at what the game is all about!
Also, please do keep in mind that this guide was written for Pokemon Diamond.
The only real differences that you will find in this guide if you're playing
Pokemon Pearl is that the wild Pokemon in some areas may be different, and
you will catch Palkia instead of Dialga. I will eventually make the guide
fully compatible with Pearl and point out all of the differences, but for now
just bear with me.

( s2. VERSION HISTORY | :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: )
`~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
Version 2.50 (5/12/07 - 654KB)
- I added completely accurate attacks for each and every Pokemon for each

Gym Leader, Commander, and other big battles of importance. Now you will
be able to see exactly what each big foe has in their arsenal!
- I FIXED MY E-MAIL, PRAISES BE! I'm really sorry about my e-mail being
down for, like, almost 2 weeks. There was some wacky setting in my site's
configuration that I didn't have a clue about, but I finally figured it
out, woohoo! If you tried to send a message and got some freaky 550 relay
not permitted message, you can now send your message to me and I should
be able to receive it without any problems.
- Just because my e-mail is fixed doesn't mean I'll be able to respond to
the 80 - 100 e-mails I'm getting a day, though... heh heh...
- In fact, I updated my Contact Info section to help explain things better.
- Fixed a ton of typoes, clarified some things, and axed more Japanese
names.
- Added a list of all of the items you can buy with your BP in the Battle
Park section (section 6.3.2.).
- Updated the TM list so it is now complete.
- Changed the name of Northeast Island to Battle Zone, since I guess that's
what it's called now.
- Fixed some info about getting to Giratina (it's still kinda vague), and
also added more info about the Resort Area.
- I'm starting to run out of things to update. I guess next up would be
coverage on Route 224, and then I get to PLAY SOME MINIGAMES! D:
Version 2.00 (5/4/07 - 630KB)
- I'm pretty sure I have nailed 99% of the Japanese names now.
- Added a section on Regigigas and Rotom.
- Did a lot of reorganizing, merging the Post-Game and Optional Areas into
one whole section, and then added a section showing you where to find
specific Pokemon, just because a lot of you don't know how to press CTRL
+ F to find things (or because I didn't list them, heh heh).
- Revamped the Pastoria Great Marsh section a bit.
- Tons of typoes and corrections fixed throughout the Walkthrough.
- Added Poketch Apps #6, #17, #18, and #19. Also listed #21 - #25.
- ACCURATE ENCOUNTER TABLES ARE NOW UP! These should be 100% accurate, and
completely compatible with both Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl.
- Apparently my e-mail was down for a few days while I was working on
getting a second server. If you sent anything and weren't able to get it
through, you have my apologies. I am working on resolving this problem as
quickly as possible, so if you are still getting error messages, just try
again in a day or two, or contact me using my contact form, which can be
found in the Contact Info section (section 11.).
- I have gotten so many e-mails (especially while the dp@ e-mail address
was working) since the release of Diamond and Pearl that it's insane! I
apologize if I haven't been able to respond to your e-mail, but I'm
literally getting 50 - 80 a day. I'm glad that you all like my
Walkthrough so much, though, and I try to answer whatever questions I
can! Just know that I'm pretty darn busy now...
Version 1.80 (4/24/07 - 543KB)
- 90 to 95% of all names should now be current with the English version of
Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. This Walkthrough is now officially for the
English version!
- I probably missed a few, though. No need to point them out; just work
with them for now.
- I'll go through and make corrections to the guide as I play through the
game.

- Ported the Walkthrough to a really spiffy HTML version, over at


http://www.mycheats.com/view/superguide/17032/pokemon_diamond_pearl_/
complete with screenshots and stuff that can't be in a simple text file.
But this text version will still be updated because it's portable.
- Added the effects to some of the items.
- Removed the Translation Guide section because it was no longer necessary.
That's why the filesize dropped by 10KB.
- Version 2.00 will be when this guide is 100% complete for the English
version.
Version 1.30 (3/19/07 - 553KB)
- Replaced ALL of the Pokemon names with their confirmed English names.
- Updated some other names, such as Team Galaxy to Team Galactic, the
Poke Watch to the Poketch, and probably another here and there.
- Corrected Heatran's attack list. It has Scary Face, not Mean Look.
- Made a lot of miscellaneous updates to various sections while I went
through the list.
- Fixed various typoes.
- Added some new questions to the Frequently Asked Questions section.
- Finally added a list of where you can find every single Pokemon for your
Sinnoh Dex! This can be found in section 8.6.! Right now, it just shows
the locations of the Pokemon for Trainers, but I might later extend it
to show where you can actually catch the Pokemon.
- Also added a English / Japanese name conversion section so you can see
both the English and Japanese names for each Pokemon to help avoid some
confusion while you adjust to the English names.
- Changed nearly all of the wild Pokemon encounter tables so they show an
accurate percentage of encounter instead of just an estimated rarity. It
only shows the frequency for encountering Pokemon in the daytime for now,
although future updates should have the other two times as well, in
addition to Surfing encounters and the encounter rates for all three of
the Rods.
Version 1.00 (1/16/07 - 528KB)
- Yes, after over two months, I finally have an update - one that I deem
"completes" the Walkthrough.
- The entire Northeast Island section has been added and covered (sections
6.3.1. to 6.3.11.).
- Updated sections 7.4. (Pokemon Mansion & Proud Garden) and 7.6. (Safari
Zone) to include a little information about there being more Pokemon that
you can catch after obtaining the National Dex. (I still need to add how
to get Rotomu to the Forest Manor section, I know.)
- Added some info on the Pokemon Super Contests.
- Updated the lists of locations and items to reflect the new additions.
- Made a whole ton of assorted other updates over the past two months that
I can't really remember them all.
- DIAMOND AND PEARL WILL BE RELEASED IN THE USA ON APRIL 22nd, 2007!!
- Changed some of the names to reflect the revealed English names.
Professor Nanakamado to Professor Rowan, Futaba Town to Twinleaf Town,
and Perap to Chatot.
- Fixed several typoes (calling Rock Climb "Rock Slide" NUMEROUS times
throughout the walkthrough ... shame on me!)
- Probably other stuff I'm forgetting that you'll just have to hunt down!
Version 0.95 (11/8/06 - 460KB)
- Did some reorganizing of the different sections, now dedicating section

6. to Post-Game, section 7. to Optional Areas, section 8. to Useful


Lists, and the sections afterward have just been post-incremented by 2 to
reflect the new additions.
- Added many of the Post-Game events, covering sections 6.1. to 6.5. and
all subsections, except for 6.3. Still have a lot of Post-Game stuff to
write about, though...
- Most likely going to merge Post-Game and Optional Areas into one section
later on, since several of the Optional Areas are much, much more
interesting after completing the game and unlocking the National Dex,
however they aren't exactly Post-Game because you can access them early
on. Hmm, decisions, decisions...
- Added the Useful Lists section which has an easy to read listing of all
of the Held Items, Key Items, TMs/HMs, Poketch Applications, and
important places and people. Hopefully this will help answer everyone's
questions before they are asked, plus it saves you the time of having to
wade through the Walkthrough to find what you are looking for.
- Fixed a few typoes here and there.
- I feel so sad only adding .05 to the version number after adding almost
100KB of content. Ugh. I'm going to mark this as "complete" and make it
version 1.00 in the next update, where I cover the northeast island.
Version 0.90 (10/30/06 - 370KB)
- Covered sections 5.9.1. (Route 223) through 5.9.3. (The Pokemon League).
Doesn't seem like a lot, but it really was.
- Also added section 5.9.0. to list all of the optional areas you can
revisit now that you can use Waterfall.
- Added Route 210 to the list of locations that you can visit after you can
use Rock Climb (see section 5.8.0.).
- The Walkthrough now covers from the beginning of the game to the end! Not
going to mark it as complete just yet, though. I'm going to add all of
the Post-Game events first.
- Renamed section 2. to "Version History & Future Updates" so I can put all
of the updates I have planned for this Walkthrough in here as well.
- Added two more credits to section 9.
- Oops, I realized I forgot to update the version number in the last
update, ha ha ha, silly me, I knew that would happen eventually.
Version 0.80 (10/25/06 - 331KB)
- Covered sections 5.8.1. (Mio City) through 5.8.14. (Nagisa Gym). This
took close to forever due to all of the events that happen in this part
of the game.
- Added Cave of Doubt (Secret Area) to the Optional Areas (section 6.8.).
- Added a ASCII-rendition of the World Map to the Translation Guide (in
section 4.).
- Fixed numerous things throughout the Walkthrough based on information
that was either sent in via e-mail or checked on my Pearl version's
playthrough.
- Did some slight graphical updates on the Walkthrough, changing the
section headers and such to a new look.
- Added another site to the list of sites able to use this Walkthrough.
- Ran out of time to add more questions to the Frequently Asked Questions
section of this guide. Oh well, I'll try do that in the next update.
- Added two new bits to the Credits section.
Version 0.70 (10/18/06 - 262KB)
- Covered sections 5.7.1. (Tengan Mountain) through 5.7.6. (Kissaki Gym).

- Renamed "Royal Relic" to "Tengan Mountain" to help avoid confusion and


remain more consistant in the recognized names for things.
- Added Route 211 (West) to section 5.2. as 5.2.13., and reordered Hakutai
Gym as 5.2.14.
- Added a bit about the Ruin Maniac's Grotto in Route 214 (section 5.5.4.).
Version 0.60 (10/17/06 - 238KB)
- Covered sections 5.6.1. (Route 218) through 5.6.3. (Mio Gym).
- Added Steel Island to the Optional Areas (section 6.7.).
- Finally designed an AWESOME logo for the Walkthrough in ASCII! Woohoo!
- Fixed, like, one or two typoes.
Version 0.50 (10/16/06 - 216KB)
- Covered sections 5.5.1. (Nomose City) through 5.5.9. (Yosuga Gym). Also
covered all of the optional things you can do after you can use Surf in
section 5.6.0.
- Added Tatara Ironworks to the Optional Areas (section 6.6.).
- Added the location of some items, as well as Pokemon to catch to older
sections that I missed before.
- Fixed the location of the Move Relearner.
- Fixed a lot of typoes. I am ALWAYS getting Kotobuki and Kurogane City
mixed up. Argh!
- Also added ASCII for the Japanese "Yes" and "No" to the Translation
section.
- Decided to up the version number a whole .2 points instead of .1 due to
the fact that I've gotta be at least half way through, plus a lot of
extra areas are covered. 0.40 just didn't seem to do it justice.
Version 0.30 (10/15/06 - 166KB)
- Covered sections 5.4.1. (Tobari City) through 5.4.5. (Nomose Gym).
- Replaced section 5.A. with 5.4., since that is where you're supposed to
go (as I thought). The Pokemon Mansion and Proud Garden sections have
been moved to the Optional Areas (section 6.4.).
- Added the Zui Ruins, Pokemon Mansion and Proud Garden, and the Safari
Zone to the Optional Areas.
- Included where to get the Raising Checker Poketch Application in the
Zui Town section, as a note. (You get it after hatching 5 Eggs.)
- Fixed a few more typoes.
- Added another Frequently Asked Question.
Version 0.20 (10/11/06 - 147KB)
- Covered sections 5.3.10. (Lost Tower) through 5.3.15. (Tobari Gym).
- I can't believe it took me two days just to get from one town to another.
I guess it makes sense seeing as I'm a total information geek and have to
explore every single area before I progress to the next one. I mean, my
play time was at 27:00+ when I got my third badge, ugh! Enough ranting!
- Fixed Hyouta's gender... Sorry, but he looked like a girl. Now he's just
one of many feminine men in Pokemon... with a hardhat!
- Updated a few things earlier in the FAQ. Also changed 5.3.10. from Zui
Town to the Lost Tower and changed Zui Town to 5.3.11., because you can
go to the Tower that early and you might as well pick up HM04 while you
are in the area rather than forget later.
- Added another question to the Frequently Asked Questions.
Version 0.13 (10/9/06 - 111KB)
- Covered sections 5.3.1 (Hakutai City) through 5.3.9 (Route 209).

- Added the Optional Areas section along with the optional areas "Forest
Manor" and "Cave of Doubt", both of which seem to be optional at this
point.
- Fixed a few minor errors throughout the guide. (I mean, come on, it said
that Version 0.10 was made in 10/4/05, haha! My bad!)
- Added a link to the pictures and Pokedex, since a lot of people want to
see that stuff anyway.
- Added some commonly asked questions to the Frequently Asked Questions
section.
- Allowed two new sites usage of using this FAQ.
Version 0.10 (10/7/06)
- Initial release of the Walkthrough. Setting version # at 0.10 since I am,
by my estimations, roughly 10% through writing the Walkthrough part.
- Only the Walkthrough is available for the time being. Other sections will
follow in later releases.
- Covered sections 5.1.1 (Twinleaf Town) through 5.2.13 (Hakutai City Gym).

( s5. WALKTHROUGH | :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: )
`~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.0.0. Getting Started |________________________________________________)
At the beginning of a new game, you will be greeted by Professor Rowan. He will
then let you ask him questions about the game controls, but since it is all in
Japanese, you will probably just want to select the third option down. If you
do find yourself in one of the first two options, keep in mind that whenever it
shows the red DS symbol inside of the text on-screen, you will need to (or,
often times, simply have the option to) use the touch screen to make a
selection.
He will then explain to you about Pokemon, and will instruct you to open a
Poke Ball. A Poke Ball will appear on the touch screen. Simply touch the

center of it, and a Munchlax will pop out. After putting the Munchlax away,
you will be able to choose whether to play as a Male or Female character. Just
highlight the one you want to play as and press A. It makes no significant
impact on the gameplay and is merely personal preference (to my knowledge).
(For the sake of this Walkthrough, I am going to assume that you are playing
as a Male character.) You will then be prompted to enter a name, which can be
up to 7 letters, numbers, or symbols.
After entering your name, your "rival" will be shown on screen and you will be
prompted to give him a name as well. Same rules apply, except there are
different default names for him. For the sake of this walkthough, I am going
to refer to him as Rival. Yeah, pretty original nickname for him, huh?
You will then be shrunk into the game, and your journey will begin.
_____________________________________________________________________________
/ | s5.1. Coal Badge |
/
`-'------------------'------------------------------------------------------`
____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.1.1. Twinleaf Town |__________________________________________________)
There will be a news article on TV about a Red Gyarados in some mountain. But
the news article will then end, and you will have control over your character.
Notice the Wii in your room. Game Freak and Nintendo are such teases! Proceed
to head down the stairs where you will be greeted by your Mother. She will
instruct you to go and see Rival. On your way out, she'll say something else.
Leave the house and make your way to the northeastern-most house and Rival
will pop out of the door. He'll start to run off, but must have forgotten
something as he heads back inside. Go in after him, heading up to the second
floor, and he'll leave.
Go north, up to Route 201, and you'll find Rival. He'll talk about the Red
Gyarados on TV and will follow you. Take him over to the west (you can't go
east yet), in to the forest. If you want to save before picking your starter
Pokemon (for trying to get a certain gender, positive stats, shiny, etc), do
so before entering the forest.
Inside of the forest, by the lake, you will see Professor Rowan and Dawn.
After some dialogue between them, they'll notice the two of you, and will then
leave. However, the Professor forgot his suitcase, as you and Rival quickly
discover. As you approach it, though, you are attacked by some wild Pokemon!
Now is the time that you'll be able to choose your Starting Pokemon, so choose
wisely!
.----------------------------.
| TURTWIG (Turtle) GRASS |
'--.-------------------------`._________________________________
| Turtwig, the Turtle Pokemon, is a pretty solid choice. It |
| has great Defense and Attack, although it is pretty slow. |
| Fortunately, it will be able to take hits throughout the |
| game, which is a good thing. It learns Razor Leaf pretty |
| early on, too, giving it a nice offensive attack. Later |
| on, Turtwig will eventually evolve into Grotle, followed |
| by Torterra, which is Grass / Ground and capable of
|
| unleashing Earthquake.
|
.----------------------------.__________________________________|

| CHIMCHAR (Monkey) FIRE |


'--.-------------------------`._________________________________
| Chimchar, the Monkey Pokemon, is all about doing damage. |
| It learns a wide variety of various Physical-based attacks |
| and it has the Attack stat to use them fairly well.
|
| Although it may have difficulty with the first Gym, it |
| will prove to be a strong fighter during the rest of your |
| journey. When Chimchar evolves into Monferno at Level 14, |
| it will become part Fighting-type as well and will start |
| learning Fighting-type moves to utilize its second type. |
| Its final form, Infernape, is also part Fighting-type, and |
| is also quite fast to boot.
|
.----------------------------.__________________________________|
| PIPLUP (Penguin) WATER |
'--.-------------------------`._________________________________
| Piplup, the Penguin Pokemon, is, unfortunately, not that |
| great early on in the game. It doesn't learn any strong |
| moves until Bubblebeam, which is Level 24 at it's second |
| stage. However, its forms have good Special Attack, and |
| its final Evolution, Empoleon, is part Metal-type, making |
| it resistant to most any attacks.
|
|____________________________________________________________|
You will have to fight against a Level 2 Starly. Just keep using your
Pokemon's first attack and you will win. Rival will take the Pokemon that you
are weak to.
Afterward, Dawn will return and take back the suitcase. Leave the forest, and
then you and Rival will run into Dawn and the Professor again. He will notice
that the two Pokemon that are missing, but will then leave and Dawn will
follow, telling you to come to the lab in Sandgem Town. You will then be taken
back home, and your Mother will tell you to go to Sandgem Town, followed by
giving you the Running Shoes. Now you can hold in B while moving to run,
woohoo!

Return to Route 201, although this time you can actually proceed east, through
the tall grass. Do so, and make your way east bound until you get to Sandgem
Town. I would also recommend fighting 2 or 3 battles to get up to Level 6. If
your HP gets below 10, you should return back to your house and speak with
your Mother to heal your Pokemon.
____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.1.3. Sandgem Town |___________________________________________________)
Upon arriving in Sandgem Town, Dawn will be waiting for you there, and she
will lead you to the Professor's Lab. Rival will then walk out just then and
will run off. Dawn will take you inside. Inside, after a bit of talking, the
Professor will decide to give you the Pokemon you chose. You can then give it

a nickname, if you desire. Eventually, he will ask you if you want to travel
throughout Sinnoh and catalog information on the different Pokemon in it. Say
yes, and you will receive the Pokedex. After some more dialogue, Dawn will
receive the remaining starter Pokemon.
Leave the building, and then Dawn will take you around the town, showing you
the different features (such as the Pokemon Center and Poke Mart). She'll then
head north, up to Route 202, and won't let you pass.
Return back to your house and speak with your Mother. She'll heal your
Pokemon, and will then give you the Note. Lots more dialgoue here, followed by
Rival's mother walking in, eventually giving you another key item (Parcel).
She will tell you to go to Jubilife City to give it to Rival.

Make your way back to Route 202 where Dawn was, and she'll show you how to
catch Pokemon. After she catches a Bidoof, she will give you 5 Poke Balls. I
would recommend buying five more, though, just in case, as well as 3 or so
Potions (for when it gets rough).
Whenever you're done catching some Pokemon, continue past where Dawn was and
you'll have to start fighting Trainers along your path. The first one will
only have a Level 5 Starly and is pretty easy. Battle your way through the
other two Trainers, and you will eventually reach Jubilife City.
____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.1.5. Jubilife City |__________________________________________________)

When you arrive, Dawn will tell you how many Pokemon you've caught and will
tell you to visit the Trainer School. She says that Rival is there. Then, she
leaves.
The Trainer School is the house right to the left of the Pokemon Center.
Enter, and then talk to Rival. You'll give him the Parcel and inside it will
be 2 Town Maps. He decides to give you the second one. He then sets his sights
for Oreburgh City to go to the Gym there. He'll say some other stuff, and then
leave. While you're in the Pokemon School, you can fight the two Trainers on
the blue carpet if you want some EXP.

The Abras both know only Hidden Power and shouldn't be too difficult for any
of your Pokemon at Level 8 or above. You can talk to the boy after battling
both of the two to receive TM10 (Hidden Power).
As you try and go past the School, a man in a suit will approach you and will
tell you that he'll give you a Poketch (short for Poke Watch) if you can bring
him three coupons. He'll also tell you that there are three campaign clowns in
town, and each of them has a coupon.
The clowns are wearing a yellow outfit, with a yellow hat that has two little
white balls on the top of it. Each jester will ask you a trivia question. They
can be found in the following locations:
- Behind the Pokemon Center
- Outside of the Poketch Company (west side of town)
- In front of the TV Station (north side of town)
Answer yes to any of their questions and you'll receive one of three Poketch
Coupons.
Once you have all 3 coupons, return to the man (he will be standing by the
Pokemon Center) and he will give you the Poketch. The Poketch has some pretty
handy features that are covered in the Poketch section of this guide.
You can get the Old Rod right now if you head west past the Poketch Company
and talk to the Fisherman in the building. Answer Yes and he'll give you the
Old Rod, which you can use to catch things like... Magikarp. To fish, just use
the Old Rod near a body of water and wait until a "!" appears over your head.
When the "!" appears, press the A button, and you'll start the battle. You can
try it out by exiting the building onto Route 218, although there really isn't
anything else there other than a dock ... for now.
Anyway, if you want to get in a little extra training, go north of Jubilife
City to Route 204. Otherwise, now that you have the Poketch, head east to

Route 203.

You can catch Budew, a Grass/Poison-type Pokemon, in the fields here. If you
started with Chimchar, I strongly recommend catching one and training it so it
learns Absorb. It will come in handy later, trust me. There's also three
Trainers to battle to help you get money and EXP, so help yourself. If you go
inside of the cave to the back, you can pick up a Antidote, and can also fight
Geodudes and Zubats.

As you enter Route 203, you'll run into Rival, who will challenge you to a
battle. He will use a L7 Starly and then a L9 of the Pokemon that he started
with. The Starly should be pretty easy, although the starter can be a bit
more challenging. If you picked Piplup, you're probably not going to be
having a fun time against the Turtwig he will use since it likes to use
Withdraw a lot. A Starly of your own at Level 9 or higher (for Wing Attack)
is a good way to counter that.
After beating him, he will run off toward Oreburgh City to try and challenge

the Gym Leader there.


Now, there's quite a few Trainers to fight along the way. They're all pretty
easy, though, but will give some good EXP for your Pokemon, so I would
recommend fighting all that you can, running back to the Pokemon Center in
case you get weak.
Make your way through the Trainers and you'll find a cave entrance. If you
don't have any Water- or Grass-type attacks in your Pokemon move pool, you
should definitely go back and heal before you enter. I'd recommend doing that
anyway, just to be on the safe side. There be Trainers in the tunnel!

Snag the X Defend to the right when you enter, then descend down, deeper into

It's a real pain to catch, so if you intend on catching it, make sure that you
lower its HP to the red zone, and be prepared to throw 10+ Poke Balls at it.
In the second area of the mine, take a left when the path branches and jump
down the ledge. Pick up the Escape Rope, and then fight with the Worker there
if you want to. Keep going and then talk to the guy with the hardhat on.
He'll use Rock Smash on an adjacent rock, and then introduce himself as
Roark, the Gym Leader. He'll then invite you to come to the Gym to challenge
him. Woohoo. Pick up the Potion, and then fight against the Worker (optional).
When you're all done down here, find your way back to the entrance, heal up at
the Pokemon Center, and get ready for your first Gym Battle!

Alright, here it is, the Oreburgh City Gym! The Trainers in here all use Rocktype Pokemon, which is pleasant if you started with Piplup or Turtwig.
However, if Chimchar is your Starting Pokemon, then you might have a bit of
difficulty. Definitely make sure that you train your Chimchar to Level 14 or
higher so it will evolve into Monferno and learn Mach Punch. If you have a
Level 13+ Budew, you will stand a much nicer chance, because its Mega Drain
will do a ton of damage to everything in here. Definitely use one (catch one
if you don't already have it) if you ran into any difficulties in the Mine (or
cannot handle the Trainers in the Gym).
After getting past the two Youngsters, you'll get to go head-to-head against
the Gym Leader that you met in the Mine, Roark.

Roark starts off by using two Pokemon that you should be somewhat familiar in
fighting by now: Geodude and Onix. The Geodude knows Stealth Rock, which,
after it's been used, will damage any Pokemon that you switch in. Against
Geodude, use Bubble (not Metal Claw, if you have it), Razor Leaf, Mach Punch,
or Mega Drain. If you have none of those attacks at your disposal, use your
strongest Special-based attacks, because Geodude has a lot weaker Special
Defense than it does Defense.
Onix comes out next, although fortunately its stats make it fairly tame. Just
give it the same treatment you gave Geodude and you'll be fine, although avoid
using Mach Punch or any other Physical-based attack here unless you use
something like Leer first, because Onix has ridiculously high Defense (Razor
Leaf will still cut it, though).
Lastly, Roark brings out his Cranidos, which is like a Rock dinosaur thingy.
Be careful, because this thing has INSANELY high attack (at least 40) and is
capable of doing a lot of damage with its Headbutt attack. Take it out with
Mega Drain, Razor Leaf, Metal Claw (or Bubble, if your Piplup hasn't evolved
yet), or Mach Punch. Those attacks will do the most damage to it.
After your victory, he will give you the Coal Badge, which will allow you to
use Rock Smash (remember that?) outside of battle, and TM76, which contains
Stealth Rock. Stealth Rock isn't really too good of a move to teach your
Pokemon in-game, so I wouldn't advice teaching it to any of your Pokemon for
now.
Heal up at the Pokemon Center, save your game, and then head back to the
Oreburgh Gate. Rival will bump into you and tell you that the next Gym in in
Eterna City. The path to Eterna City from Route 207 requires a Bicycle, so
it's impossible to take that Route, but you can take the path from Jubilife
City to get there instead.
So, looks like it's time to go back to Jubilife City!
DETOUR ALERT: You can take a quick detour to Route 207 to the north of
Oreburgh City to find two Poke Balls and catch a Machop. (See section 5.2.1.)
On your way through the Oreburgh Gate, you can take the north path and use
Rock Smash to find a basement area with two items (TM70, which contains Flash,
and Stardust, which you can sell for cash). You can do more here later on, so
keep that in mind.

Be sure to heal up your Pokemon, because you're about to have a Trainer
battle. Make your way north when you're ready and you will find Dawn and the

Galactic, and will engage you in a battle.

This is your first Double Battle, although it's really easy. For those of you
that are unfamiliar with Double Battling, you basically just get to select
which Pokemon you're attacking now, and there are two Pokemon on each side of
the field. Fortunately, Dawn's Pokemon is way stronger than either of the Team
Galactic Grunts, plus you still have your Pokemon, so these two should be a
piece of cake.
After the battle, they'll run off. After some more dialogue, the two will
leave, but you'll then be approached by another man who tells you that the TV
Station is now open and will give you a Fashion Case. You can collect little
accessories that you can use to dress up your Pokemon with inside of the TV
Station.
Before leaving, you might as well check out the TV Station. Inside, on the
first floor, you can fight against random Trainers in the karaoke corner.
These Trainers have fairly high level Pokemon in comparison to what you've
been fighting against, so be careful.

One of the Trainers (more like two, really) you can fight are the
Interviewers.

Grass-type attacks are 4x effective on Wooper, but Marill has a deadly Rollout
attack that can become a problem if you don't KO it right away. Definitely
focus your attacks on only one Pokemon at a time to make the fight easier in
the long run. After winning, you'll get a TON of money.
You can find the Dress Up Room on the 2nd Floor. It's in the room in the wall
(by the stairs). Before entering, though, talk to the man in the hall to
receive a Mask of your Starting Pokemon for your Accessories. Now you can go
into the room, and just talk to the guy guarding the door, and then you'll get
to choose a Pokemon to dress up. Choose one, and then dress it up! After
dressing it up, you will need to give it a title, and then it will be
displayedo n the wall.
On the 3rd Floor, you can find a whole ton of Records and stuff. The 4th Floor
has absolutely nothing of interest, so don't even bother.
Whenever you're done dressing up your Pokemon and whatnot, head back to where
you encountered the Team Galactic dudes and head northbound back to Route 204
(North).

locations of any of the Berries you get in this Walkthrough (at least not for
now), so just pick 'em and go, ok?
There's not a whole ton to do in this town right now, but there are some items
you can pick up. For starters, go inside of the red house that's directly
north of the entrance to town and talk to the girl inside. Answer yes to her
question, and she will give you TM88 (Pluck).
Inside of the Flower Shop, talk to the lady on the left to receive the
Sprayduck, which you can use to water Berries to make them produce more when
you pick them. If you talk to the lady on the right, she will give you a
random berry once per day. Lastly, talking to the blonde-haired lady will let
you purchase accessories for your Pokemon for Dress Up by exchanging Berries.
Pay no attention to the Galactic Goons at the northwest section of the screen.

You'll see two Galactic Grunts threatening an old man, insisting that they
"must have" his honey to "attract Pokemon in great numbers." Approach them,
and they'll both start a fight with you, one after the other. After beating
them, they'll run off, and the old man will give you the Works Key that they
dropped. Hmm, I wonder what that could be used for? He also gives you some
Honey.
You can either use Honey outside of battle - in a place where you can
encounter wild Pokemon - to start a fight against a wild Pokemon immediately,
similarly to using the Sweet Scent attack outside of battle.
Or, you can slather the Honey on the golden trees that you'll see all over
the place, and then come back in between six and nine hours to (hopefully)
find the tree shaking.
The tree will then have a random Pokemon from this list, with some Pokemon
being rarer than others:

- Wurmple (common)
- Silcoon (Diamond-only)
- Cascoon (Pearl-only)
- Combee (uncommon)
- Burmy (uncommon)
- Cherubi (uncommon)
- Aipom (rare)
- Heracross (rare)
- Munchlax (very rare)
If you wait longer than 24 hours, the Honey on the tree will lose its
potency, and whatever Pokemon would have been on it will be gone.
Also, saving your game and restarting it has no effect on the Pokemon that is
on the Honey tree, but it can affect the wild Pokemon's level and gender if
you reset, so that is useful if you're looking for, say, a female Combee.
Now that you have the Works Key, return to the Valley Windworks and open the
door.

Watch out! Her Zubat knows Toxic, which will Badly Poison your Pokemon, making
it take more damage from Poison with every turn that passes. Her Purugly, the
big cat thingy, is very quick and will usually enter the fight using Fake Out
to inflict some damage and force you to skip a turn. Administer Potions if you
get weak, but otherwise just use your strongest attacks against it. It has an
Oran Berry on it, which will heal 10 HP when it gets weak. The good news is
you'll get a massive 627 EXP for beating it!
After beating her, she and the other Team Galactic members will run off and
the nerdy technician guy will tell you some stuff until his daughter runs in,
telling him that he needs a shower. Hahaha!
Now you can cross the bridge on Route 205 that was blocked off. Time to return
there! (After healing your Pokemon, of course.)

Now that you can finally cross the bridge, you are able to explore the
important part of Route 205. Trainers, Trainers, everywhere! There are plenty
of Trainers along the way north, so be sure to fight them to help get some
EXP. There's also a few items you can pick up as well.
Eventually, you will cross another bridge (this one over a cliff, not water)
and will find a red house shortly afterward. Talk to the lady inside of the
house to conveniently heal your Pokemon. Also, south of the house, you can
find a Super Potion.
Whenever you're ready, enter the forest to the north.

When you enter, this one chick, Cheryl, will ask that you help her through the
forest because she's worried about Team Galactic, and then will join your
party. Yep, every encounter in this forest will be a Double Battle. She uses a
Level 15 Chansey that knows Egg Bomb and Softboiled. Egg Bomb does a
surprisingly high amount of damage, actually. Anyway, how wild Double Battles
work is you can only catch throw a Poke Ball when there is one Pokemon left.
Chansey can unfortunately make this a bit of a burden, because it will often
times Egg Bomb the wrong Pokemon and use Softboiled even if it doesn't really
need to.
One interesting point is that you will be fully healed after every single
battle while Cheryl is with you, which makes Training here pretty cool,

actually. And, Chansey doesn't seem to leech any of the EXP you get from
fights.
This place is actually somewhat of a maze, so I'll help with directions. Start
by going east, then north, battling the Bug Catcher and Lass. Keep going along
the path, until you find two Psychics. They both have Abras with Hidden Power,
but they're pretty easy. Then, keep going south until you see two Bug
Catchers. If you want the EXP, fight 'em the go north at the next branch;
otherwise, go north and take the first right. Then, go north through the
Psychics if you want to fight them, or west if you would rather not. Either
way, make your way to the northeastern area of the forest, then go north. Now
head west, a bit more north (some Honey is west, though), then east and Cheryl
will thank you for taking her out of the forest and leave. Too bad.

Another bridge, and some Fisherman to fight. The one with the 6 Magikarp
really ticks me off. There's a Fisherman like this in EVERY GAME and it's
really annoying because they give garbage for EXP. Ugh.
You can also pick up a Potion in the muddy area south of the exit of the
bridge.

Ah, finally, the city of your second Gym Battle. Before you rush to the Gym,
you might want to take some time to check the town out, because there's a bit
to do here.
You can change your Pokemon's Nickname by talking to the old man inside of the
tall building next to the Poke Mart (southern side of town). Also, inside of
the same building, you can trade a Buizel (which you can catch just outside of
the city) for a Chatot.
You can also pick up the Explorer Kit by talking to the old man in the
building to the right of the Pokemon Center. You can use this to dig into
Sinnoh Underground, which is a large mini-game where you can dig for items to
help build your Secret Base, play games with other people over a local DS
connection, and dig for buried artifacts like fossils.
Two items of interest that you can pick up in the Underground right now are
the Skull Fossil (Diamond) and the Shield Fossil (Pearl). You can take these
fossils to the Museum in Oreburgh City to turn them into Cranidos and Shieldon
respectively.
If you explore the northern area of town, a gothic-looking chick will stop you
and notice your Pokedex. She'll recognize you working for Professor Rowan,
introduce herself as Cynthia, and will talk about how she's been investigating
Pokemon mythology. She'll eventually give you HM01 (Cut), and then leave. You
can't use this yet, though; you have to beat the Eterna City Gym Leader first.
Further along that path, you'll find a shop that sells those Energy/Herb items
that decrease the happiness of your Pokemon. They're cheaper than the normal
healing items, but they come at the price of lowering your Pokemon's
happiness. Chances are, you won't really care about this, unless you're trying
to raise a Pokemon like Budew, so you can buy some of these items as a cheap
alternative to regular items. Buying a few Revival Herbs is not a bad idea,
especially since Revives are hard to get at this point in the game.
If you keep going, you'll eventually stumble upon a Route with some Trainers,
a cave and an item, which is covered in section 5.2.13.

You can catch two pretty useful Pokemon here: Meditite and Ponyta. Ponyta is
particularly helpful if you're having difficulties in Eterna Gym.
You can Rock Smash the rock by the Hiker to find another Trainer with a pretty
strong Hoothoot. But south of her is TM12 (Taunt).
There's also nothing to find inside of the cave for now except for a Revive
hidden in the rock near the door (examine the rock to find it). You'll need
Strength (much later in the game) in order to proceed any further.

Talk to Gardenia, the Gym Leader standing by the door, and she'll tell you
that you have to take her challenge before battling her, which consists of
finding four Trainers.
The first Trainer is located by the Gym Leader's area (north of start). You
can find her in the first branch to the left, then moving south a little bit.
The second one can be found by making your way down the left-most corridor, at
the dead-end.
The third is hiding behind the three small trees near the entrance to the
room.
And lastly, the final Trainer, is in the very northeastern-most corner, which
is accessable by taking the first right from the entrance all the way to the
end.
After defeating all four of them, Gardenia will appear in the northern area of
the room. Heal up, save your game, and get ready to earn your second Gym
Badge!

Cherubi is pretty easy. You should be able to take it out with little
difficulty.
Turtwig knows Reflect, which will half the effectiveness of your Physicalbased attacks for 5 turns. Plus, it has pretty high Defense.
Her Roserade is quite tricky to beat, though, because it's both strong and at
a high level. I had my Onix use Screech against it until it was Knocked Out
with Magical Leaf (and the Reflect wore off). Roserade likes to start out by
Paralyzing things with Stun Spore, so watch out and administer Parlyz Heals or
Cheri Berries as required.
After beating her, you will receive the Forest Badge, which lets you use Cut
outside of battle, and makes it so traded Pokemon up to Level 30 will obey
you. She'll also give you another present, TM86 (Grass Knot). Woohoo!

Now that you can use Cut, use Cut on the bushes by the Galactic Eterna
Building (the black building to the north of the Pokemon Center). You can also
use Cut on the bush in the northeast part of the lot to access a path that
will take you to TM46, Thief.
After getting that, enter the black building. You'll need to fight the two
Grunts guarding the stairs (Double Battle). On the second floor, there will be
lots of Galactic Goons on computers. The first and third one from the left
will fight you if you talk to them. Go up to the third floor, fight the Grunt
and the Scientist. On the fourth floor, you'll see another Team Galactic
Commander, Jupiter, who has captured someone's Pokemon.

Her Skuntank will use SmokeScreen and Poison Gas to really hamper your ability
to fight. Don't be afraid to switch out Pokemon if you are having difficulty
hitting with your attacks.
After beating her, she'll run off, and the man will be thankful to you for
getting his Pokemon back and will invite you to come to the Bicycle Shop.
Leave the building and go to the Bicycle Shop. Talk to the guy that you just
saved and he'll give you the Bicycle. To use the Bicycle, you have to be
outside or in a cave. You can press B to change gears for different speeds and
such. Now run far south into the building to enter Cycling Road.

'-----------------'
On your way through the building, if you have seen at least 35 Pokemon, talk
to the scientist guy, who is both Rowan's assistant and Dawn's father, and he
will give you the EXP. Share. This is a very helpful item for raising new
Pokemon, because you can even train weaker Pokemon without fear of them
getting Knocked Out or without having to switch your Active Pokemon every
fight.
There are a ton of Trainers down Cycling Road, which you must use a Bicycle to
ride down. They use a variety of types, so just kind of use whatever works
well on them. You'll get a good amount of money, as well as EXP, for beating

all of them, so I would definitely do so.


Eventually, you'll reach the bottom of Cycling Road. You can talk to the
blonde-hair girl in the station to receive a Flag for your Accessory Case (can
be used for Dress Up).
Route 206 is right outside of the building.

In order to access all of this stuff, you'll need to use Cut on the bushes to
the east of the Cycling Road exit. It's completely optional, though, so just
head south if you don't mind missing out on a chance to catch some new
Pokemon.
In the area, you can find several Pokemon that you haven't seen before (or, at
the very least, haven't encountered in the wild). Bronzor is a pretty hard-tofind Pokemon in this Route, but makes a great tank. Ponyta is also a really
good Fire-type Pokemon, and if you started with either Piplup or Turtwig, you
will probably feel lacking in the Fire department (no joke there). You can
also pick up the Poison Barb to help boost the power of your Pokemon's Poisontype attacks.
Near the back of Route 206, you'll find a cave. The cave is called the Wayward
Cave, and unless you're feeling like exploring a frustrating dungeon maze
without too great of a reward, I'd advise staying away from it. If you are
really feeling up to it, please see Section 6.8. about the Wayward Cave. On
the bright side, you can stop inside to have a better chance of finding a
Bronzor, in case you were looking for one.

Whenever you're done in Route 207, just return to the exit of Cycling Road,
take a few steps south, and you're already in Route 207.

As you enter the Route, Dawn will come up to you and ask you to pick her left
or right hand. Regardless of which hand you pick, she'll give you the Vs.
Seeker, which is almost exactly like the Vs. Seeker from FireRed and
LeafGreen. It's a really nice item to use to fight Trainers again and again to
get lots of money and EXP.
She'll also give you the Dowsing Machine app for your Pokektch similar to the
Item Finder in previous games. To use it, change the Poketch until you see
crosshairs, then touch the screen. If there are any hidden items nearby, they
will show up as a dot on your Poketch. Just keep moving around until the dot
is in the middle of the crosshairs, then take one step away and press A on the
previous spot (as if there were an item there; remember, pressing A while you
are still ON the spot won't do you any good), and you'll get it. You can pick
up a Revive in this way by doing that right after you get the Dowsing Machine.
There are now some optional areas you can go to at this point. You don't have
to visit any of them, but you might want to check them out.

,---------------.
| JUBILIFE CITY |
`--.------------'------------------------------------------------------.
| You can return to the Poketch Company Building and talk to the |
| President (on the first floor, by the receptionist) to receive |
| the Memo Pad Poketch Application.
|
|___________________________________________________________________|
,---------------.
| OREBURGH GATE |
`--.------------'------------------------------------------------------.
| In the basement of the cave (requires Rock Smash), there's a ramp |
| that you can use your Bike to get across. Make sure that your |
| Bicycle's Gear is set to Speed (the fast mode; you'll know), then |
| ride it across the ramp-like thingy and you can get TM31 (Brick |
| Break). There is also a place that you can Surf here, but that's |
| not something you need to worry about now. Just remember it.
|
|___________________________________________________________________|
,-----------.
| ROUTE 204 |
`--.--------'----------------------------------------------------------.
| After the cave, there is a bush that can be Cut by the two twins. |
| You can find a girl back there who will give you TM78, Captivate. |
|___________________________________________________________________|
,-----------.
| ROUTE 205 |
`--.--------'----------------------------------------------------------.
| Immediately after exiting Eterna Forest, head south and Cut the |
| bushes blocking the way, and you'll be in the outside area of |
| Hakutai Forest. Follow the path and you'll eventually find a girl |
| who will give you an Accessory. You can also find the
|
| Silverpowder (raises the power of Bug-type attacks) and TM82
|
| (Sleep Talk) in the rocky area.
|
|___________________________________________________________________|
,---------------.
| ETERNA FOREST |
`--.------------'------------------------------------------------------.
| Return to the back part of the forest and you can use Cut on the |
| bushes blocking the path that was previous unaccessable. There |
| will be a large house in the back, and you can pick up an Ether. |
| You can enter the house to be inside of the Old Chateau.
|
|
|
| Please see the Old Chateau section for info on what's inside. |
|___________________________________________________________________|
Remember, all of these locations are optional, so you do not have to visit any
of them that you don't want to.
Continue to the east and proceed to fight a handful of Trainer Battles, one of
which being a Double Battle. Make your way to the cave entrance on the eastern
side and proceed to enter Mt. Coronet.

The cave itself is pretty straightforward, although you can catch Meditites,
Machops, and even Chingling. If you don't have a Fighting-type Pokemon yet and
you have room on your team for one, either Meditite or Machop would make a
good choice.
Head south a bit, and approach the stairs. As you approach the stairs, a man
with blue hair will walk towards you, and will then talk to you about Sinnoh
and Mt. Coronet. He'll then leave.
There really isn't anything much left to do here for the time being, although
after you get Surf later on in the game, you'll want to come back and explore
the areas blocked off by water. The exit is on the east side of the cave, as
expected, and is pretty easy to find.

| Odd Keystone |
'-----------------'
On the other side of Mt. Coronet, Route 208, there are some more Trainers
for you to fight, and three of their Pokemon should be entirely new sights to
see (Combee, Mime Jr., and Bonsly), so you will probably want to fight the
said Trainers to add them to your Pokedex. You can pick up an X Speed by
taking the first bridge north, after fighting the Black Belt. You can also
pick up a Poke Ball if you have a Pokemon with Rock Smash on you after
crossing the second bridge to the east.
After crossing the bridges, you'll reach some tall grass with some more
Trainers in it. You can catch Psyducks and Bibarels, which are the evolution
of Bidoofs, here. You can also talk to the Black Belt in the southeast corner
of the tall grass to receive the Odd Keystone.
There's also a house in the area, by a patch of berries. Inside of the house,
you can talk to the Berry Master (the old man) to receive a random Berry once
per day. If you talk to the little girl and answer yes to the question she
asks, she'll give you a new Poketch Application, the Berry Searcher. The Berry
Searcher will show you a mini map of Sinnoh and will point out any berry
patches with berries in them. The lady in the house will also sell you
different kinds of mulch that apparently helps with growing berries. Not quite
sure exactly how yet, though.
After you're done here, make your way through the building to the east and
enter Hearthome City.
____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.3.7. Hearthome City |_________________________________________________)
As you enter town, you'll stop a Buneary from feeling the town and its Trainer
will chase after it. She'll thank you for stopping it, introduce herself as
Keira, one of the Contest Judges, and put the Buneary back in its Poke Ball,
inviting you to come to the Contest Hall so she can thank you.
Hearthome City is a pretty large city. It's all about Pokemon Contests, and
all of the inhabitants are crazy over them. Some of them have even traveled
from Hoenn to participate in the Contests!
Inside of the Pokemon Fan Club, which is located directly to the east of the
Poke Mart (it has a red roof), are some Pokemon fanatics. Talk to the
President (the guy in the suit) and you'll receive the Poffin Case, which
allows you to make Poffins (Bread made from berries; think Poke Blocks from
R/S/E). You can find the Poffin House in the house adjacent to the Poke Mart.
This is where you go to make Poffins. Unfortunately, I do not have any

information on the minigame, so you're on your own there for the time being.
Enter the building next to the Pokemon Fan Club and go up the elevator. Talk
to the girl up there, and she will give you the Shell Bell, a very useful Held
Item which restores your Pokemon's HP whenever it damages a Pokemon. Very
helpful.
Another noteworthy mention is Bebe, the Bill/Lanette of Diamond and Pearl.
You can find her in the house to the right of the Pokemon Center. She doesn't
really give you anything after talking to her, but when accessing the PC, the
Pokemon Box system will now show up as "Bebe's PC".
Talk to the person with purple hair standing outside of the Contest Hall. She
will introduce herself as the Hearthome City Gym Leader, Fantina. However,
she'll just leave, and won't even return to the Gym for now.
Enter the Contest Hall, and you'll see your Mother and Keira. Keira will give
you the Glitter Powder Accessory, and your Mother will give you a Tuxedo (or a
Dress if you are playing as the female character). Keira will then leave
toward the waiting room, and then your Mother will leave out the entrance.
You can try out a whole ton of fun Contest stuff if you want to at this point.
There's a lot more you can do with contests, so check out the Contest section!
As you try to leave Hearthome City, Rival will appear and will challange you
to a battle.

Looks like he's caught a few more Pokemon. Fortunately, you should have a
pretty fair team of Pokemon yourself now, so you should be able to handle
whatever he throws at you.
After beating him, he'll tell you about the next Gym, which is in Veilstone
City, and will then run off.
On your way out of town (to the east), talk to the Hiker guy, and if you have

room in your Party, he will give you an Egg. Eggs hatch into a Level 1 Pokemon
after a certain number of steps. This one in particular will hatch into a
Happiny Egg after 10,496 steps, so you might want to carry it with you if you
have room for it. You can evolve your Happiny into a Chansey if you use an
Oval Stone on it while it's happy.
Before leaving east, you might want to check out Amity Square to the north to
pick up some useful items.
____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.3.8. Amity Square |___________________________________________________)
In the Amity Square, you get to spend some quality time with one of the cute
Pokemon in your party. You will need to have one of several "cutesy" Pokemon
in your party in order to get in.
A list of all of the Pokemon you can bring into Amity Square are:
- Pikachu
- Clefairy
- Psyduck
- Pachirisu
- Happiny
- Buneary
- Drifloon
- Jigglypuff (after National Dex)
- Torchic (after National Dex)
- Skitty (after National Dex)
- Shroomish (after National Dex)
The receptionist will hold onto all of your other Pokemon and let that
Pokemon follow you around. You can talk to your Pokemon by facing it and
pressing A, as you would anything else, and there's a chance that it will give
you an Accessory for your Accessory Case.
There are also a few helpful items scattered around the area. You can find
TM45 (Attract) in the northern part of the field, and you can find TM43
(Secret Power) in the southern part. In the northeastern corner, there will be
two stone buildings that you can enter. The one on the left has an Amulet Coin
hidden inside, and you can find a Spooky Plate outside of the building on
the right.

'-----------------'
Interesting mix of wild Pokemon here. Mime Jr. is a popular one, although
probably not that great in battle. Plus, you can catch the evolutions of
Bidoof and Starly here, which both make decent additions to your roster if you
don't have them already.
Be sure to talk to the Fisherman fishing on the dock and answer his question
with "Yes" to receive the Good Rod. Now you can catch Goldeen and Barboach and
stuff, as well as Level 15 - 20 Magikarps. Woohoo! This makes it really easy
to evolve it into Gyarados if you decide you want that on your team.

Fight your way through the assortment of Trainers along the road, picking up
items if you want to. TM47 (Steel Wing) can be found behind a bush that you
can Cut down near the Lovey Couple.
There's also a Calcium in the area, but it's a bit tricky to get. On the leftside of the Young Couple, there is a dirt hill that you can climb with your
Bicycle (on Speed Gear). However, rocks are in the way, so you will have to
build up speed and then turn at just the right time in order to make it up the
hill.
Near the end of Route 209, there is a strange obelisk called the Lost Tower
that you can enter. It is similar to the Pokemon Tower in Red/Blue/Yellow in
the fact that it's where fallen Pokemon are put to rest. You do not actually
have to check this out right now, but inside is HM04 (Strength) which you will
need at some point, so I'm going to cover it. If you don't visit it now, be
sure to come back here after you get the sixth badge.

'-----------------'
There's Zubats and Gastly up here, as well as Golbats on the upper floors. If
you didn't stop by the Old Chateau, now's as good a time as any to catch a
Gastly.

The Tower is actually pretty straightforward. Just climb your way to the fifth
floor, fighting the Trainers as you make your way to the top. There's some
handy items along the way, too, such as the Oval Stone, a Revive, and TM27
(Return).
On the top floor, you will find two old ladies. Talking to the one on the left
will give you HM04, which contains Strength. You won't be able to use this
until you get the third badge, though. The lady on the left will give you a
Cleanse Tag.
Exit the tower, and head north to reach Solaceon Town.
____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.3.11. Solaceon Town |_________________________________________________)
Yeehaw! Solaceon Town is full of cowboys and cowgirls. Hehe. You can find the
Pokemon Day Care (a.k.a. Breeding Center) here, so you can finally breed your
Pokemon to get Eggs. You can also buy Dusk Balls here in the Poke Mart (the
girl on the left) for $1000 each. These work great in caves and during nighttime, although they're expensive for right now.
At the Day Care, you can drop off up to two of your Pokemon. These Pokemon
will gain 1 EXP for every step travelled. You will have to pay $100 to take
the Pokemon out of Day Care, though, as well as an additional $100 for every
Level the Pokemon gained while it was there. So how do you get a Pokemon Egg?
Well, first, a boy Pokemon and a girl Pokemon have to like each other a lot,
and then... *ahem* Ok, enough breeding jokes. To get a Pokemon Egg, you need
to drop off a Male Pokemon and a Female Pokemon that are both in the same Egg
Group (like, for instance, Bidoof and Buneary are both in the Field Egg Group,
so they can bear an Egg). Then, after you've taken a hundred steps or so, the
old man outside of the Day Care will be facing right instead of down, and, if
you have room in your party, you can talk to him to receive an Egg. The Egg
will eventually hatch into a Level 1 Pokemon of the Female's species.
NOTE: After dropping off two Pokemon here, a man will appear inside of the Day
Care. Talk to him, and he will give you the Day Care Checker Application for
your Poketch. It shows the two Pokemon you have in Day Care, their Levels, and
Gender. Plus, if there's an Egg waiting for you there, it will be shown on the
screen.
Anyway, enough of the birds and the Beedrills.
You can talk with the man near the center of town and he'll give you the
Pokemon History Application for your Poketch. It's nothing too fancy; it just
shows you the last 16 Pokemon that you caught, hatched, or evolved. Not overly
useful, but I'm sure it has its uses.
The "Pokemon Pro" in the house next to the Pokemon Center will ask you to show
him a random Pokemon. If you do, he will give you a Heal Ball. He'll ask to
see a different Pokemon each day, so stop by every now and then to see what
he's looking to view.
Behind the Pokemon Center, to the right, there are some cliffs that you can
jump down to reach three locations: two houses, and the Solaceon Ruins. Don't
bother with the first cliff, so jump down the second one and enter the house.
Talk with the lady inside, and she'll give you the Sticker Case, which lets

you put cool stickers on your Pokemon's Poke Balls ... but not until later.
And lastly, if you jump down the cliff to the far right, you will find a cave.
Inside the cave is the Solaceon Ruins. Visiting the Solaceon Ruins is entirely
optional, although you should probably stop by so you can see Unown (#114) for
your Pokedex. If you wish to see information on the Solaceon Ruins, please
check out the section for "Solaceon Ruins" in the Optional Areas section of
the walkthrough. You can get a Nugget, Rare Candy, Mind Plate, and a Odd
Incense down there, as well as catch Unown.
Whenever you're done here, head north to Route 210.

'-----------------'

The grass around here is taller than the usual tall grass you've seen. The bad
news is you can't ride your Bicycle through it. The good news is... well,
there's a new Pokemon for you to catch inside: Chansey! Plus, unlike the
previous Pokemon games, Chansey isn't quite as freakishly rare to encounter.
Plus, on top of that, all of the wild Pokemon in the area (except Geodude, I
guess) give a great amount of EXP. Like 350+ per fight. Chansey also gives
over 600, which really adds up.
Use your Bicycle to ride up the muddy path by the jogger, and then follow the
cliff over to the girl staring to the north. Talk to her, and she'll give you
TM51 (Roost). You can also get a Great Ball on one of the hills that you need
the Bicycle for.
One point of mention: the two Pokemon Breeders Happinys each give over 960 EXP
for beating them, so they are certainly worth fighting, and I would advise
using your Vs. Seeker on them to fight them a few times if you're looking for
some EXP (although, it is probably faster fighting the Ponytas in the area).
There's also a Pokemon Cafe near the end of the Route. Inside, there are some
more Trainers for you to fight if you talk to them.

You can also buy Moomoo Milk for $500 each by talking to the lady at the
counter. That's a really good deal if you're in need of some healing items,
because it heals more than Super Potions do (heals 100HP) and it even costs
less. The downside is that you have to buy each one individually, so it takes
longer.
Outside of the Cafe, the path to the north is blocked off by Psyducks. But
that's ok, because you need to head east to Route 215 anyway.

The Trainers in the area use lots of Fighting-type Pokemon, so be sure to have
your Flying- or Psychic-type attacks handy. They are also at a bit higher
level than the last area's, so make sure that you handle them with caution.
You can also encounter wild Kadabras here, which make an excellent Psychic
Pokemon for your party. They're a bit of a pain to catch, though, so be
prepared to waste up to a dozen Poke Balls on just one (assuming you got it
down to under 1/3 health).
Near the beginning of the route, you can use Cut on a bush and then enter a
fight against Black Belt. Afterwards, you can pick up the Fist Plate nearby.
The guy on the way to the bridge will give you TM66 (Payback) if you talk to

him. You can also get TM34 (Shock Wave) after passing the large field of tall
grass by using Cut on another bush. Lastly, there's a Full Heal near the end
of the Route.

Now here's a pretty big city with some things to do in it. Veilstone City is
actually a lot like Celadon City from FireRed and LeafGreen... it has a
Department Store and Game Corner and everything! And, from the looks of it,
the evil organization trying to take over the world (in this case, Team
Galactic) is also around town.
The first place you will probably want to check out is the Department Store,
which can be found on the northern side of town, up on a ridge by some other
houses. Inside, there are 4 floors of shops, along with a roof, as per usual
of Department Stores in Pokemon Games.

Talk to the old lady with a hat on on the first floor of the Depot and she
will give you a Mask of Dawn's starting Pokemon for your Accessory Case.
On the second floor of the Department Store, talk to the bottom lady at the
counter, and she will give you the Counter Application for your Poketch. It's
a pretty simple Application: you just press the + button on the screen to add
one to the counter. This is handy for keeping track of how many Pokemon you
have fought for, say, EV Training or something.

On the roof (fifth floor), talk to one of the big guys and he will give you a
Sticky Barb.
Anyway, other than the Department Store, there's also the Game Corner and the
Gym. The Game Corner can be found on the southeastern side of town, although
you will need to pick up the Coin Case before you can play the Slot Machines
or get any Coins. You can find the Coin Case by talking to the jester inside
of the second house near the Gym (southwestern side of town) and correctly
guessing which hand he has it in.
Inside of the house next door, you can talk with the lady there and she'll
offer to give your Pokemon a massage that will raise its happiness. I'm pretty
sure that this can be done once per day. You can also talk to the guy outside
of the two houses to receive TM63 (Embargo).
The big building on the northeastern side of town is the Galactic Veilstone
Building. You can't get far into it for now, but you can pick up a PP Up on
the left side of the outside of the building.
The Game Corner is the flashy looking house on the southeastern side of town.
You can talk to all of the people inside (after getting the Coin Case) to
squeeze 70 free Coins out of them. You'll have to buy/win any more, though.
You can buy 50 Coins for $1000, or 500 Coins for $10000 by talking to the lady
at the counter. To play the Slot Machines, go up to one, and then press X to
put in three Coins. You can either press X again or press Down and the reels
will start spinning. Then, you can press Y to stop the first reel, B to stop
the second reel, and A to stop the third reel, and you'll receive the payout
as listed on the bottom corners depending on what you get. A type of Poke Ball
may also appear on the bottom, indicating that you will have better luck and
the slots will be sticky to a certain degree depending on which Poke Ball is
down there.
Next door, you can talk to the lady at the counter to redeem your Coins for
the following prizes:
,--------------------------------.

'---------------------'------'
Looks like the prices on the good TMs went up. Ugh.
Anyway, I guess now would be a good time to heal up and earn your third Gym
Badge. The Gym is located north of the house that you got the Coin Case at, in
the southwestern area of town. On your way there, Dawn will talk to you and
then run off to the Department Store.

This Gym's puzzle I found rather fun, although I could see where it could
become rather frustrating. Basically, you have to push the sliders on either
side and they will slide around. Certain positions of the sliders will block
your access to certain areas and allow you access to others. You will need to
get the two sliders on the very top pushed, which requires you to form a path
on each of the sides to get back there. It's hard to explain, but just keep at
it, and you'll get the jist of it.
When you get to the end, you'll find Maylene. Remember, if you leave the
building, the puzzle will reset, so consider your party's status before going
back to heal.

Ok, my Pokemon were extremely strong at this point because I got a bit carried
away with training. If you have a Staraptor, you will completely own Maylene,
period. Use Aerial Ace against the Meditite and Machoke, and then Close Combat
against Lucario. But, that's only assuming you have a Level 34 Staraptor. Even
Staravia will be at a nice advantage, although not quite as effective. If you
don't have either, the fight will be a bit more challenging.
You would think that Psychic-type Pokemon would be effective against a
Fighting-type Gym Leader, although Machoke is the only one of her Pokemon
that's weak to Psychic due to clever typing (Psychic resists Psychic, and so
does Steel, so both Meditite and Lucario only take normal damage). Golbat or
Haunter would do nicely here if you have one trained. Otherwise, keep your HP
up, and keep any Rock-, Normal-, and Steel-types away. Lucario is the main
threat, due to its high level and resistance to a large amount of types.
When you win, she'll give you the Cobble Badge, which lets you use Fly outside
of battle. She will also give you TM60, which contains Drain Punch.

Clefairy does an awesome job at doing nothing productive. You will find it
using Metronome and Sing a lot. Sing can be helpful, but Metronome isn't most
of the time.
After beating them, they'll run into the Warehouse and order them to lock the
doors. Dawn will then tell you to go to Pastoria City.
Go inside of the Warehouse and, although you won't be able to proceed any
further, you can pick up HM02 (Fly) in there to assist your travelling needs.

Make your way south, fighting the Trainers along the way. Some of these
Trainers can be fought in either Single or Double Battle, depending on which
direction you challenge them, and the Policemen will only fight you at night.
Use common sense, there. You can find TM11 (Sunny Day) near the Gentleman and
Socialite, but you need Cut in order to access it. You can also find an Elixir
further down the path.
When you find the field of tall grass, you will be nearby the gates to the
Pokemon Mansion. In the courtyard, you can fight against the Rich Boy and Rich
Girl, and further along the path you'll find the Pokemon Mansion. You can
enter it, don't worry. Just mind your manners!
You can check out info on the Pokemon Mansion, and the Trophy Garden contained
inside, in section 6.10. of this Walkthrough.

'-----------------'
As you enter the southern section of Route 212, you'll notice that it will
begin to rain. This will carry on into battles, too, so all Water-type attacks
are going to have boosted power, and Fire-type attacks will be weakened. Keep
that in mind if you are going to be using any of those attacks.
There are a over a dozen Trainers to fight along the way, so you'll be bound
to gain lots of EXP if you fight them all.
After some trekking, you'll reach an interesting area where you'll see narrow
paths suspended in the air. In order to get across them, you have ride your
Bicycle over the narrow path. Don't worry; you can't fall. Help yourself to
TM62 (Silver Wind) which is found across one of the narrow bridges.
There's a bridge (on the water) nearby with some Fisherman on it that you'll
need to cross. The Fisherman are totally optional to fight, as most usually
are, but I would still recommend it to squeeze some more EXP into your
Pokemon.
After the bridge, you will find two things of interest: a little house, and
what appears to be a muddy swamp. You can redeem Shards, which you can find
Underground, for TMs here.
On to the swamp. You won't be able to ride your Bike in the swamp, obviously,
so you'll have to go on foot. You might also run into a mud pit, where your
character will just stop in their movements. To get out of one, you'll need to
wriggle your way out by trying to walk in various directions until you
eventually break free.
Near the end of the swamp, you can find TM06 (Toxic). You'll also find another
narrow bridge overhead shortly afterward. You can pick up a Revive if you walk
under the bridge (it looks like its surrounded by forest, but there's really a
clear path), and you can pick up an X Special and a Zinc by riding your
Bicycle across the narrow bridge and then following the path (a Scientist and
Parasol Lady are along the way).
Just a bit further east and a little north of the swamp, you'll find another
seemingly empty swamp (HINT: use your Dowsing Machine Application!) and a path
east over to your destination: Pastoria City.
____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.4.4. Pastoria City |__________________________________________________)
Pastoria City is home to the Great Marsh game (see section 6.11. for full
coverage) as well as your fourth Gym Battle. Other than that, there really
isn't too much special to the town.
You can speak with the lady inside of the first house from the eastern
entrance to receive a random rare Berry once per day.

The Parasol Lady by the Great Marsh will give you another Accessory for your
Accessory Case: a Mask of whatever Pokemon your Rival started with. Woohoo!?
You'll also see a Team Galactic Goon lurking outside of the Safari Zone. Ack,
looks like trouble has even reached down here.
Pastoria City's Poke Mart has an inferior selection of items in comparison to
Veilstone City's Department Store, but it does have both Dusk Balls and Quick
Balls for sale. The Quick Balls are particularly handy for catching Pokemon in
the first few turns of the fight, and make a great type of Poke Ball to use if
you just like to try and quickly catch a Pokemon or don't want to risk
knocking it out.
The house by the water is the Move Relearner's house. Talk to the guy inside
and he will offer to reteach a move that one of your Pokemon can learn by
Level Up. However, it comes at a price of one Heart Scale, which can be found
in Sinnoh Underground.
You will need to go into the Great Marsh at some point and talk to the person
with green hair right near the entrance in order to get HM05 (Defog).
Other than that, the Great Marsh is optional.

This Gym's puzzle involves a lot of water. There are three levels to the Gym:

I will refer to them as bottom, middle, and top. There are also three
different colors of buttons scattered throughout the Gym. The Yellow button
will lower the water level to the very bottom, allowing you to access any of
the three levels of the Gym; the Green button will raise or lower the water
level to the middle level, giving you access to the middle and top levels; and
the Blue button will raise the water level to its highest stage, so you can
only access the top level.
There are also rafts that float depending on the water level. You can cross
these rafts, and they will make bridges depending on the water level.
To solve the puzzle, from the start, go across the bridge and press the Yellow
button. Proceed down the stairs, ignoring the Green button you see. Head to
the very back, climb the stairs up to the top level, and press the Green
button. Go back down the stairs but this time to the middle level, ignore the
Yellow button, and walk around (crossing a bridge) back up to the top floor.
Press the Blue button. Head south, fight against the Tuber boy and Tuber girl
(crossing some bridges as you go), then press the Green button. Go down to the
middle layer and press the southern-most Yellow button (ignore the one next to
a Green button). Walk all the way north, leading you to the bottom floor.
Follow the path until you get to a Blue button, then press it. Cross the
bridge, and the path to the Gym Leader should appear.

Again, my Pokemon are way stronger than they should be at this point. Crasher
Wake uses Water-type Pokemon, so your Grass- and Electric-type Pokemon will be
at an advantage. However, be mindful to the fact that Gyarados is NOT weak to
Grass (since it is part Flying-type) and Quagsire is completely IMMUNE to
Electric-type attacks. If you have the luxury, use Electric-type attacks
against Gyarados and Grass-type attacks against Quagsire, as those attacks
will do 4x damage to (and likely One-Hit K.O.) that Pokemon.
Gyarados has the Intimidate Ability, which will lower your Pokemon's Attack
when its sent out. It also has pretty high Attack itself and some moves that
use it. Quagsire has Water Absorb which will restore Quagsire's HP if its hit
by a Water-type attack instead of deal damage.
Floatzel is both strong and quick, so stay on guard. Fortunately, it's weak to
both Grass- and Electric-type Pokemon, so if you have one you'll be able to
hit it pretty nicely. Floatzel does know Brine, though, which does more damage
if the target Pokemon has half or less HP remaining. Keep your HP high,
otherwise Brine will sweep you away.
After beating Crasher Wake, he'll give you the Fen Badge, which allows you to
use Defog outside of battle. He will also give you TM55 (Brine). Also, if this
is your fourth Badge, all Traded Pokemon up to Level 50 will obey you without
question.

After beating Crasher Wake, talk to the Galactic Grunt outside of the Great
Marsh, and now that you have four Badges, he'll run off. Follow him east, talk
to him again, and he'll continue running away from you. After he runs off,
Rival will appear from behind and start a battle with you.

Compared to the last two Gym Leaders you've had to fight, Rival should be a
complete pushover. His Starly isn't even evolved, so one hit from practically
any of your Pokemon should do it in with little difficulty. His other three
Pokemon have gained a few levels, but still aren't really a threat. The only
one that might give you a little trouble would be his starter Pokemon,
although even it is weak in comparison to the Gym Leaders, so you should be
able to take it down with either smart type countering or sheer brute force.
After beating him, he'll hear about the Galactic Grunt, and then chase after
him. You should do the same, and head east to Route 213.

The Shellos in this area are blue and look slightly different, so don't be
alarmed. They're still the same Pokemon. There's also Wingulls and even

Floatzels here for you to catch and/or battle.


You can pick up TM40 (Aerial Ace) behind a Smashable Rock to the east of the
Beauty. You can also use your Dowsing Machine in the sandy areas to go
beachcombing and pick up a Pearl.
The house by the shore is rather unusual. If you talk to the man inside of it,
Dr. Footstep, he'll examine your lead Pokemon for you. Apparently, if it's
happy with you, he will give it a Footprint Ribbon.
Move along the southern coast, heading east, and you'll run into the Galactic
Goon again. Talk to him, and he'll dart off east. Follow him, fighting the
Tuber boy and Tuber girl if you desire. You can use the Dowsing Machine in
this beach to find even more items. You can also pick up a Red Shard outside
of the nearby hotel, the Hotel Grand Lake.
Since there's nowhere else to go, enter the hotel. Talk to the hotel clerk if
your Pokemon need any healing, and then take the back exit. This'll take you
to an area with some houses in it. Inside of the second house you come across
(first one on the left), you can talk to the clown living there to receive
TM92 (Trick Room). You can also pick up a PP Up near the pool, which is west
of the scattered houses.

North of the hotel area you'll find a place nearby Lake Valor. There's a
restaurant near the entrance, which you can enter and fight a multitude of
Double Battles. Do so if you wish, and you'll pick up nearly $10,000, as well
as a bit of EXP. The restaurant is only open between the hours of 9:00 and
23:00, and the Trainers inside might v
