1. Intro***********************************P1********************************
Welcome to what is yet another Pokémon FAQ by me, this one being my tenth or
eleventh. A little over a year ago, I wrote my FAQ/Walkthrough for the games
of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. It ended up being almost 500 KB large; my third
largest as of the writing of my LoZ: Wind Waker FAQ (finalized on 12/30/2010).
I thought that I didn't do too good on the D/P one for several reasons, so I
decided to go ahead and make another for Pokémon Platinum. So, enjoy!

Once you start a new game, you are asked for your name and gender, as well as
a name for your rival. These choices are impossible to change later, so be
sure that you are using what you want.

)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
                                Twinleaf Town
)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

At the beginning, you're upstairs in your house, watching a show about a red
Gyarados. Obviously, they haven't seen it. I figure that its shiny, so what
are the odds? 1/8192 approximately. Head downstairs. Your mom says that your
rival is looking for you, so head outside. Just as in most Pokémon, if not all,
you start in a small area. However, Twinleaf has changed a bit since the old
D/P days; there is some snow on the ground. As before, there are four houses,
but yours and your rival's are the only ones that matter. There is also that
pond to the south; ignore it. Head northwest to your rival's house. Go upstairs
and head northward, out of Twinleaf.

When you leave, you'll shortly converse with your rival. Soon after, Professor
Rown will appear and talk to you, asking a few questions. When he asks, choose
the top option. After a bit, his assistant will come with a briefcase and you
will be allowed to choose your starter:


You have three choices, each at level 5:

Turtwig  (Grass)
Piplup   (Water)
Chimchar (Fire)


Each has its own strengths and weaknesses. If you are going for early-on
strength, choose Turtwig.

Afterwards, your rival chooses the one of the type that has the advantage over
yours. Your first battle starts, with your rival, not Starly like in D/P.

|          Turtwig (Lv. 5) Grass [if your starter is Piplup]  <--'          |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Like most of the other Pokémon games, you'll fight your rival immediately |
| after getting your starters. At this point, neither of your Pokémon have  |
| moves of anything other than the Normal type, so you essentially have no  |
| weaknesses or resistances; the same applies to the rival. Basically, just |
| wail on the opponent.                                                     |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

After the battle, you'll be transported to your home in Twinleaf. Your mom
will give you the Running Shoes. Use them by holding B while walking. When
ready, go onto Route 201.

| There are no Trainers on Route 201.                                       |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

Once on the Route, your rival will ask you to go to Lake Verity. Do so by
going west, then north to the lake. There, you will see a blue-haired man, and
then he'll leave. Soon after, you'll hear the cry of Mesprit, a legendary
Pokémon. Your rival will leave. When done, return to Route 201.

For now, you cannot catch any Pokémon. However, you can still fight some wild
Pokémon for EXP. to level up. Level up at least once and go east into Sandgem
Town.

Upon entering Sandgem, the professor's assistant will escort you to Professor
Rowan's lab. You will be given a Pokédex. This device documents Pokémon as they
are seen in the wild or in battle. After catching one, you may see some basic
data about it, such as weight and type.

After leaving Professor Rowan's lab, you are given TM27 (Return). Professor
Rowan's assistant will then show you around Sandgem. Once done, go to the Poké
Mart and buy some items, then get the Antidote south of Sandgem, on Route
219. Afterwards, head back to your house in Twinleaf to talk to your mother.
Then go back to Sandgem and heal your Pokémon at the Pokémon Center.
You may notice the two escalators, unlike the mere one in previous games.
The left one goes upstairs to the area where you can go to the Union Room to
battle, trade, and such. The other door goes to the Colosseum. You can also
make an autograph to go on the back of your Trainer's Card. The escalator on
the right goes to the Wi-Fi Room which uses Nintendo WFC. However, this is
unavailable until you get to Oreburgh City. Heal here, though.

After doing whatever, go north of Sandgem on...

As soon as you're on Route 202, Prof. Rowan's assistant comes and teaches you
how to catch Pokémon. He/she gets lucky (needed lower HP) and gives you five
free Pokéballs. Okay, catch and battle your way north to Jubilife City. Try
grabbing a Shinx and Starly for easier battling later. As for Kricketot and
Bidoof, go for those only for the Pokédex and as HM slaves (for Bidoof,
anyhow).

After arriving in Jubilife, Professor Rowan's assistant will approach you. You
will be introduced to an undercover cop codenamed Looker. After a quick talk,
you end up with a Battle Recorder.

So, next, go to the Pokémon Center and heal up. Afterwards, go to the Trainer's
School just west of the Pokémon Center.

Here, you see your rival. Talk to him and give him the package. He opens the
package and pulls out two Town Maps. He doesn't need the second one, so he
gives it to you. Enjoy that. Look at the blackboard nearby for some help. When
you beat Harrison, the male trainer on the right, you can get a Potion from
him. Check the northwest corner for an X Attack.

Leave and talk to the man between the Pokémon Center and Trainer's School. He
will tell you how to earn a Pokétch (short for Pokémon Watch (which is short
for Pocket Monsters Watch)). The clowns are in these locations:

~ In front of the Pokémart.          Answer: Yes
~ In front of Jubilife TV station.   Answer: Yes
~ In front of Pokétch Company.       Answer: Yes

For the correct answer (Yes) you get a Pokétch coupon. Take all three to the
man who started this contest. You'll get a Pokétch, an upgraded version of the
D/P one. Yay.

You COULD leave now, but go west to Route 218 and grab the Old Rod from a
fisherman. Sure, it only catches Magikarp, but leveling it up to evolution
results in a powerful Pokémon.

Do a bit more shopping, then head east out of Jubilife onto...

As soon as Route 203 is entered, your rival challenges you to a battle....

|          Piplup [if chose Chimchar] (Lv. 9) Fire   <--|-- Only one.       |
|          Chimchar [if chose Turtwig] (Lv. 9) Grass <--'                   |
|                                                                           |
| Hope you have a Lv. 10 Shinx and Starly. Really. It will be better. If not|
| you can use your starter. Tough, but will teach you two lessons: (1) Have |
| multiple-typed Pokémon, and (2) how to correctly battle unfavorable types |
| in tough battles.                                                         |
|                                                                           |
| Shinx is best right now, definitely if you chose Chimchar. If not, you    |
| still have a chance.                                                      |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

Whew. That's over with. There are five trainers on Route 203, so it is a good
time for a bit of leveling up. Catch some more Pokémon and level a bit. Abra
is a good catch for later on, as well as Shinx if you haven't done so yet.

After you think you're ready, head east to the Oreburgh Gate, a small cave.

Talk to the first hiker at the entrance to get HM06 (Rock Smash). The northern
path cannot be traveled to, so head eastward to exit the cave. As you do, be
sure to some catching: Zubat and Geodude are fairly good when they've evolved
some. Catch Psyduck if you don't have a Water type.

Not much to do. Your rival is blocking the way to the Oreburgh Gym; he says
the gym leader isn't here. The big building on the east side is useless until
you get underground and find some fossils. A trade can take place at the
second comdominium if you have an Abra. You'll recieve a Machop if you go with
the trade.

One thing to note is that you now can use the Nintendo WFC stuff.

When you are ready, go south into the Oreburgh Mine.

Once in, keep heading down into the basement. Go on the south side, and talk
to the guy with the brown rocks on either side of him. He'll talk to you a bit
and he'll leave. WAIT! He's the gym leader! Go outside to where the gym was.
Heal your Pokémon and buy plenty of Potions. Walk into the gym and fight!!!
The trainers I mean. You CAN skip them, but its a free level or two.

|          Cranidos (Lv. 14) Rock                                           |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| If you have Grotle/Prinplup, you're good to go! Water or Grass moves will |
| do 4x damage against Geodude and Onix, KOing them almost instantly. The   |
| Cranidos will take only 2x dmage against such moves, so it'll take longer,|
| but you should win.                                                       |
|                                                                           |
| If you chose Chimchar... boy, it's tough. If possible, evolve a Budew     |
| to Roselia beforehand. Not as effective, but it could be worse. Same stuff|
| applies - try to use Grass/Water moves all of the time.                   |
|                                                                           |
| You SHOULD NOT use Shinx or Starly, or any Electric or Flying types for   |
| that matter. No fire types, either.                                       |
|                                                                           |
| One thing you will notice is that Roark tends to use Stealth Rock, which  |
| damage your Pokémon when you switch. He'll use Geodude, his easiest, then |
| his Onix (stronger Geodude), and then Cranidos. Cranidos will probably be |
| the one to do you in, with its higher Attack. Headbutt will do a large    |
| amount of damage to you, unless you're using Geodude or Onix.             |
|                                                                           |
| If you have too much trouble, level up some. If it is just with Cranidos, |
| grab the Machop from the trade and level it up, or level up a Geodude to  |
| Lv. 15 so it can use Magnitude. Another possibility is Psyduck from the   |
| Oreburgh Gate, who learns Water Gun at Lv. 9.                             |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

After winning, Roark gives you TM76, Stealth Rock, and the Coal Badge, your
first badge. After the battle, you can't do much else.

Finish some shopping, go to the Pokémon Center and heal. You can find some
more Pokémon and two free Pokéballs north of Oreburgh. Once done, head west
back to the Oreburgh Gate.

I will note, though, that you can catch a Ponyta, Machop, and Ralts north of
Oreburgh on Route 207. Grab at least Ponyta, as it is a Fire type.

Note that the following for Oreburgh Gate is optional; continue on to the
Route 203 & Jubilife City's sections if you don't wish to do this.

You will need a Pokémon that has Rock Smash learned and the Coal Badge for the
following.

Remember where the path forked, but some boulders were in the way? Head that
way now, and break those boulders. You can now enter the first half of the
basement. Not much that can be done now, only catching Psyduck and finding
TM70 (Flash).

If you DID do this, head on back to Route 203.

Once you get near Jubilife, Officer Looker will show up and speak with you.
After that, do whatever you want, head north of the city to find Prof. Rowan
and his assistant being pestered by oddly dressed people. If you watched the
show, you know who these people are - Team Galactic.

|===========================================================================|
| Your first double battle. FYI, a double battle is essentially 2-on-2. In  |
| this one, you have a partner that chooses his/her own moves and target (in|
| a double battle, there are two enemy targets).                            |
|                                                                           |
| This is easy enough. If you have gotten Machop, the whole is over; both   |
| are weak against Fighting. If you don't, it won't matter: it is quite     |
| possible it will like a 2-on-2 version of your first battle: no one with  |
| a strength or weakness.                                                   |

Another short, no-thrill route. You can catch Roselia's pre-evolved form, so
go for it, just for the Pokéde (or if you don't have Turtwig). You can also
get a Wurmple, although I just grab it for the Pokédex. Continue onward to the
Ravaged Path.

Basically dead. You can go to the Flower Shop for a Sprayduck if you ever plan
on planting berries, which is key for Contests. Otherwise, not much use.

So, anyway, heal up, shop, and go east onto Route 205.

Catch some Pokémon, first. Buizel is okay for a Water-type substitute, although
Shellos is better in some ways and worse in others once it evolves. Pachirisu
isn't really all that good for an Electric type, so catch it only for the
Pokédex.

When ready, talk to the nearby Galactic Grunt to battle.

Nothing much except Trainers are here. The Pokémon here are even the same as
the Valley Windworks. Continue on northward. Enter the house near the entrance
to the forest to heal, if wanted. Once ready, enter the Eterna Forest.

As soon as you enter the forest, a girl, Cheryl, comes up to you. You are
forced to team up with here throughout the forest. There are several things
to note:

> Wild battles are consisting of double battles. You cannot capture one until
  one opposing Pokémon is KOed.

> If you exit the area, the partner will return when you re-enter.

> You cannot use Surf, Rock Climb, or your bike.

> After ALL battles, all Pokémon are ENTIRELY healed, including statuses.

Cheryl's Pokémon is a Lv. 15 Chansey. To get to the end of Eterna Forest, use
these directions:

> From entrance, go right.
> Then up.
> Now, right.
> Head down.
> Another right.
> Then up.
> Left, for once.
> Up again.
> Let her leave.

Now, then, catch some Pokémon, hunt down some items, take a nap, and leave the
forest.

No real point here. Level up a bit, catch a few Pokémon, and battle a unique
Trainer - the six Magikarp guy. Head east to Eterna City when you're ready.

|____________________|____________|_________________________________________|

Upon entering, heal up and shop. Just don't shop at the Herbal Shop, as that
will lower your Pokémon's happiness, which may prolong evolution and weaken
the move, Return. (However, it would power up Frustation.) After doing that,
go to the house next to the Pokémon Center to be given an Explorer Kit, which
will let you go Underground and do stuff with others via Wi-Fi. You must use
it outside, though. Sometimes, it still can't be used, so...

Go north of the Pokémon Center next and your rival will come by and take you
to the city's Pokémon statue. There, you will find the blue-haired man again.
As you try to go back west, Cynthia will come, giving you the HM01 (Cut) before
leaving. The badge here, the Forest Badge, will let you use it outside of
battle.

You can also enter one of the condominiums for a trade. If my memory serves
correctly, it is the condominium next to the Poké Mart. If you give a Buizel,
you get a Chatot, a Pokémon that cannot be seen until REAL late in-game, after
the Snowpoint City Gym Battle (#7). Head to the Eterna Gym on the southern
side of Eterna when you feel ready.

Once inside, you learn that you have to fight three hidden Trainers, in order.
The first Trainer is hidden by a tree near the Gym Leader's stand(?).

|                                 | Flying or Fire, as always. Zzzzzzzz...  |
|_________________________________|_________________________________________|

Go south on the current path, until the end. The Trainer is kind of hidden by
the trees.

|                                 | Not too hard, if you have a type with an|
|                                 | advantage (Fire/Flying/Ice).            |
|_________________________________|_________________________________________|

The final Trainer is in the northeastern area of the Gym.

| Rematch: No                     |                                         |
|                                 | Now, I HOPE you have a Flying or Fire   |
|                                 | type. Do not use a Rock, Ground, or     |
|                                 | Water type; Turtwig knows Razor Leaf.   |
|_________________________________|_________________________________________|

Once you have defeated the third Trainer, go back to the Gym Leader's stand...
or whatever you call it. The battle for the Forest Badge!

| Boss: Gym Leader Gardenia \

| Pokémon: Cherrim (Lv. 20) Grass                                           |
|          Turtwig (Lv. 20) Grass                                           |
|          Roserade (Lv. 22) Grass/Poison                                   |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Okay, if you have a Flying or a Fire type, use it. These types of Pokémon |
| and moves are super effective against Grass (as well as Bug) types. If you|
| have an Abra/Kadabra, it also deals double damage against Roserade, since |
| Psychic moves are super effective against Poison types. Flying/Fire types |
| have the advantage - Grass moves do half damage to them.                  |
|                                                                           |
| Be prepared to use status healing items, as Paralyze and Poison come up a |
| lot.                                                                      |
|                                                                           |
| Gardenia will usually begin with her Turtwig. Being Grass, it will fall to|
| Ice, Fire, Flying, and Bug. Too easy.                                     |
|                                                                           |
| Cherrim usually is second. Magical Leaf is a popular move for it, and it  |
| can hurt some eventually. Leech Seed is another popular move. As with     |
| Turtwig, Ice, Fire, Flying, and Bug are best.                             |
|                                                                           |
| Roserade will tend to be last and is the most powerful. Fire, Flying, and |
| Psychic are all good move types to use, as they do double damage. There   |
| many Pokémon that you could've gotten of one of these types, so...        |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

After winning, you get the Forest Badge and TM86, Grass Knot.

Leave the Gym, and heal up, shop, and whatever else. Teach Cut to a Pokémon, if
have not done so, then head to the building in the northernmost part of Eterna
City.

The Team Galactic Building is pretty straightforward, and has several battles
for some decent cash and EXP.

Basic goal: Get to the fourth floor. Most of these battles are avoidable, but
why? Good cash and EXP.

So, on the first floor, the middle staircase leads to a battle and item. The
right goes to the second floor.

On the second floor, the first staircase goes to the third floor; the second
staircase goes to a battle and an item.

On the third floor, the first staircase will go to the fourth floor; the second
staircase leads to a Revive and a Blue Shard.

On the fourth floor, you fight another Commander of Team Galactic, Jupiter.

| Skuntank is immune to Psychic, so use a Ground move if possible. If not,  |

After you win, the Bike Shop owner is rescued and gives you a free bike! Also
be sure to grab the nearby item (Upgrade).

Heal up, shop some more, then head south on the Cycling Road. If you've seen
30+ Pokémon, hello EXP. Share. This item gives some EXP. to a Pokémon if held,
even if it didn't participate in-battle. If the holder is in battle, it gains
~1.5x the normal amount, more if from trading.

However, it is okay to visit Route 211 on the side real quick. Therefore, I'll
cover it here; skip ahead to go to the Cycling Road.

You will eventually notice that this is only the western part of Rt. 211; the
other half is closer to Celestic, which you'll eventually come to. At the end
of the Route, you COULD have gotten into Mt. Coronet, but you lack Strength and
the required badge. So, catch a few Pokémon here, level up some. When done, go
back to Eterna and south to Route 206.

Right now, just battle and head southward.

Outside, near Mt. Coronet, Rowan's assistant comes. No matter what, you get the
Dowsing Machine Pokétch app, which lets you find invisible items, and the Vs.
Seeker, which lets you see which Trainers want/can have a rematch. Most do
want one, however, so it's rather useless.

Right now, you can head to Oreburgh City, north to the ground part of Route
206, or head eastward to Route 207. Route 206 and the Wayward Cave is rather
hopeless (as you don't have Flash), so head to Route 207 (east).

|___________________________________________________________________________|

There are several new Pokémon to catch. Meditite is good, mainly because it
takes regular damage from Psychic moves. Cleffa is tough to evolve, as it
needs a high happiness level, then a Moon Stone. Clefable is good though, as
can learn quite a few moves. Chingling is the pre-evolved form of Chimecho, a
seemingly impossible to catch Pokémon from Generation III (Ruby, Sapphire, and
Emerald). It is only actually useful for colection, as it is rather weak.

Anyway, there is only one path at the moment. Head a bit south, then east. On
top of the stairs, you'll once more see that blue-haired man. Getting a bit
suspicious, right? After that encounter with him, head east some more, out of
Mt. Coronet.

A few new Pokémon, so start catching! Bibarel is an HM slave, as it can hold
FOUR HMs at once. Great for those who want at least three with good, non-HM
moves.  Psyduck is best for the collection, though.

Most of these Trainers cannot be accessed until you get Rock Climb and Surf,
so there's maybe a lot less battles than usual. Head east and you'll see a
set of Berries and a house. You can get a free berry from the old man there
daily.

Keep heading eastward. You're now in the Contest Capital, Hearthrome City.

A huge city with little to do. Weird, huh? Anyways, head to the Contest Hall
(the huge building in the north). You talk to your mother and get some clothes
for a Contest. You can now do a Contest, but it isn't recommended, unless it's
someone else's Pokémon from a trade that has good Contest stats. While there,
go and talk to the purplish-haired woman, which is the Hearthome Gym Leader
Fatina. She will now return to her Gym.

It would help if you had the Poffin Case, so let's get one. Head to the house
to the far right of the Pokémart. In it, you can get a Poffin Case. Now you
can make Poffins, which raise the Contest stats of Pokémon, like PokéBlocks
from Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. You need Berries to make Poffins, as well as
a working Touch Screen, with a friend(s) as an optional choice. You'll go to
the Poffin House to make them, which is somewhere in the southwestern corner
of the city, I think.

You can also get your first egg here. Head to Hearthrome's southeastern area
and talk to the hiker. He'll give you an EGG that hatches in 10,259 steps. It
hatches into a Happiny, Chansey's pre-evolved form. The final evolved form,
Blissey, has MASSIVE HP. From what I saw on Pokémon XD, it has an average of
600+. That is just normal. Imagine if Happiny had Pokérus snice Lv. 1, and you
leveled and evolved it, then put 10 HP Ups on it. It will be the best staller
Pokémon alive. In Wi-Fi battles, that gives you a chance to seek out important
weaknesses in the enemy. Well, I digress.

In Amity Square, you can find a VERY important item, the Amulet Coin. First,
you need one of these Pokémon:

> Pikachu
> Clefairy
> Psyduck
> Pachirisu
> Happiny
> Buneary
> Drifloon

You should have at least a Psyduck. Head to the northeast/northwest area of
Hearthrome, then head north, into Amity Square. While in Amity Square, head to
the odd buildings in the northeastern area. The item will be an Amulet Coin.
An Amulet Coin DOUBLES the cash gained in battle (if the holder participates).

Now, into the gym we go. Heal up beforehand!!

If you've played D/P, you're probably dreading the math problems. It has been
changed entirely. The rooms have been blacked-out except for you and the light
from other trainers' flashlights. Getting caught initiates a battle.

At the back of the room, there will be a few doors with symbols on them. You'll
have to find the place in the room with the correct symbol to know which door
to go through; the wrong door will return you to the entrance of the gym.

When you get into the second room, you'll have to shine your light on the tile.
That also goes for the red tiles near the door. Once you go through the right
door, you challenge Fatina.

| Pokémon: Duskull (Lv. 24) Ghost                                           |
|          Haunter (Lv. 24) Ghost/Poison                                    |
|          Mismagius (Lv. 26) Ghost                                         |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Well, well, well. She has all Ghost types. That is bad. They are immune to|
| Normal and Fighting moves. The have a resistance to Psychic moves. BUT,   |
| they cannot use Ghost moves on Normal (and presumably Fighting) types, as |
| they are immune, too. The have two weaknesses: Ghost and Dark.            |
|                                                                           |
| Duskull is the weakest and tends to be the first one used. It can use     |
| Will-O-Wishp to burn you and decrease Attack. Ghost attacks are optimal.  |
|                                                                           |
| Haunter is her strongest and weakest at once. Being Poison, it has no     |
| Psychic resistance. Psychic, Dark, or Ghost work fine here.               |
|                                                                           |
| Mismagius is the pure Ghost type, so only Ghost and Dark moves work well. |
| She'll use Psybeam, Shadow Ball, Confuse Ray, and Magical Leaf. So, if you|
| are using a Dark type, you are okay-ish.                                  |
|                                                                           |
| I recommend having a Lv. 25+ Luxio, a Lv. 25+ Murkrow/Honchkrow/Haunter,  |
| your starter at Lv. 28+, and whatever else you wish. Everything at worst  |
| should be at Lv. 23+.                                                     |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

After the battle, you'll be given your badge and TM65 (Shadow Claw). You can
also use Defog outside of battle.

Once done, heal up some, rest up, and shop. Maybe make some Poffins and do a
Contest. Once your done, try to leave Hearthrome going east. You are now
battling your rival once more.

|===========================================================================|
| Let's just over each Pokémon's weaknesses.                                |
|                                                                           |
| Staravia is weak to your Electric, Ice, and Rock moves. Too easy.         |
|                                                                           |
| Buizel is also weak against Electric moves, as well as Grass moves. Also  |
| easy.                                                                     |
|                                                                           |
| Roselia is weak against Fire, Ice, Bug, and Psychic moves. Piece of cake  |
| Gardenia.                                                                 |
|                                                                           |
| Ponyta, being Fire, is weak against Rock, Water, and Ground moves. Is this|
| too easy or what? Well, not really.                                       |
|                                                                           |
| Monferno is a pain without any Flying, Water, or Psychic types. with a    |
| Gyrados, you should be fine.                                              |
|                                                                           |
| Prinlup is essentially a stronger Buizel. A Grass or Electric type is best|
| against this one, just like Buizel.                                       |
|                                                                           |
| Grotle is essentially a stronger Roselia. Flying types work best, as they |
| do double damage and take half. I'd say Fire, but they (at this point) are|
| only gotten from trades. If you have one, good.                           |
|                                                                           |
| Recommendations: Luxio, Gyrados, Roselia, Starvia, and your starter. All  |
| of these, at worst, should be at Lv. 21 or so, comfortably at Lv. 28+.    |

Unlike D/P, you'll probably not find a rare Pokémon on this Route; not-yet-
caught is possible, but not rare. Chansey and Duskull are okay captures. If
you need a stalling Pokémon, try for Chansey: its evolution can have upwards
of 600 HP.

The are quite a few Trainers and rare Pokémon here, so stay a bit and play
around. Catch the rare ones and do the battles for a nice wad of cash.

Now, unlike D/P, the Lost Tower is optional. I'll still cover it, though. If
you don't feel like going there (you're missing on cash, Pokémon, and EXP.),
head on to Solaceon.

Why is there one of these in every Pokémon? Seriously, WHY? Anyway, there are
some Pokémon previously seen in Eterna Forest. Remember to catch a Ghost
Pokémon if you didn't catch a Duskull earlier.

Unlike D/P, this Lost Tower doesn't have such an elaborate encounter system for
each floor: one applies to the Tower as a whole. The third floor and those
beyond it are fogged up, halving both your and your opponent's accuracy. There
isn't much here, seeing as the HM was moved to another place, so...

Head back to the first floor and exit. Head north to Solaceon Town, most known
for the Daycare.

This is the most visited town of most people. Why? The Daycare! You can breed
Pokémon here, helpful for Pokédex completion. A female starter (M:F ratio 7:1)
can make a lot more starters with a traded male. Go inside the Daycare and talk
to the man at the table for a Pokétch App that shows the status of those in the
Daycare owned by you.

There is a few more things to do here. The newspaper building beside the 
Pokémon Center: show a guy a specifc Pokémon for three of some Pokéball, maybe
even Ultra Balls. In a house to the east, a woman can give you a sticker case,
and the boy gives you one more sticker for each Unown you get.

To the far, far east of Solaceon is the Solaceon Ruins. The main Pokémon is
Unown, seen in G/S/C/FR/LG naturally, others via trading. Unlike in D/P, the
Ruins aren't so useless: the HM05 (Defog) is in there. The HM itself is
optional, but rather helpful. I'll go ahead and cover that.

If you don't wish to get it, exit the town to the north and continue past the
Solaceon Ruins section.

)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
                                Solaceon Ruins
)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

In here, you can get several evolution stones that can help you evolve Eevee
or other Pokémon.

For the Fire Stone, from the entrance, go down the stairs to the left and press
A while facing the rock.

For the Water Stone, from the entrance, go to the northeast stairs, then the
southwest stairs twice, then press A while facing the rock.

For the Thunderstone, go the same as with the Water Stone, except start with
the northwest stairs.

Now, for the HM. Take the northeast, then southwest, then northeast, then the
northwest twice, and finally the southwest stairs. As well as the HM, you'll
get a Nugget, Mind Plate, and Odd Incense. Also catch an Unown while here:
this is their only location to be found in aside from trades and Pal Park.

When you are done here, exit and go to the southern portion of Rt. 210.

Scyther now appears here; it is a decent Pokémon to have all around.

Head on north. You do not HAVE to use the bike, but it is faster and gives
quick access to some battles. You see a cafe at the end and a group of immobile
Psyduck. If you wish, head into the cafe for some stuff. Milk and Trainers!

|_________________________________|_________________________________________|

There are some more Pokémon on this route, so catch, at least, Kadabra. Again,
Scyther is also decent if you haven't yet caught one.

On Rt. 215, it is always raining. Fire is weakened, Water is strengthened,
Thunder always hits, and some abilities becomes active. See, rain on a route
is the same as Rain Dance in battle, except it NEVER goes away, except with
something like Sunny Day or Sandstorm.

Anywho, the route is fairly confusing at first, but here is what you should do
to get to the end: go up the first set of steps and over the bridge, and go
down. Head down and to the right and head up the steps to the next bridge.
Head over the bridge and go down. From there, the route is fairly
straightforward. Head to Veilstone after you get through.

Like Celadon and Goldenrod and Lilycove (to an extent), this city is big. It
has a huge department store, as do the aforementioned cities. Veilstone even
has a Game Corner (aka: kid's casino). The Department Store has had a few
upgrades since D/P. Stock up on stuff here.

Another change is a completely-free Porygon. In the right house above the
Pokémon Center, talk to man inside. Answer the top option and, if you have an
empty space, you'll now have a Porygon. The Upgrade from the Valley Windworks
will evolve it to Porygon2 when you trade it while it is being held.

If you do, by some damn miracle, have Deoxys, go to those rocks in the
southeastern area. They can actually change Deoxys's form to allow it to excel
at power, defense, or speed. However, you have a defiency of one other stat.

You can give you Pokémon a massage in the southwestern area. It only happens
once per day, but you get free items, but they aren't definite. In the east
of that, you can talk to the clown to get a Coin Case. If you choose the wrong
hand, try again. If you plan on doing the slots, a Coin Case is a requirement.
I don't know why.

Well, heal up and shop (you should have $10,000+ by now!). Then head to the
Gym, with some Flying and Psychic types. No Rock, Ice, Steel, or Normal
types!!!

The last gym to recieve an upgrade of some sort is this one. It has a new
puzzle. If you press A near a punching bag in the direction it can go down
the pole it is on, it will go in that direction. Tires in the way will be
smashed.

Begin by hitting the first punching bag to the right. From there, go up and
hit the punching bag up, then up again until it stops near some holes. Hit the
other punching bag up to break some tires. Go up and around the just-hit
punching bag to find another punching bag; hit it to the left twice to knock
over two tires. Go left and down, then fight the trainer. If he blocks the
way, go around to the lower part of the area to continue. Next, go to the
northwest corner of the gym, fighting the trainer and knocking the punching
bag down then right. Now, go down to the southeastern corner where the arena
is to find two punching bags, one of which is blocked by tires. Push the one
you can get to up, left, then down to break the tires. Once they are, push the
next punching bag up, then right, to break some more tires. After that, go
through the un-blocked benches and push the upper punching bag to the right,
which will let you get to Maylene.

If you want to leave and heal, you'll do the puzzle again, just so you know.
When ready, approach Maylene to battle her.

|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Man, kids are never so annoying as now. The Psychic is only regular on two|
| and the Flying is regular on one. Time to analyze!                        |
|                                                                           |
| Meditite is the weakest and cancels the Psychic weakness. A Ghost can be  |
| hit still, so use Staravia, or something similar.                         |
|                                                                           |
| Machoke is the only pure fighter and is weak to both Psychic and Flying.  |
| A Kadabra or Staravia is best. Ghosts are good for resistance.            |
|                                                                           |
| Lucario is friggin' pain. It has neither weakness. It has Drain Punch, a  |
| move that can KO in one-two hits AND HEAL ITSELF. The best type to use    |
| is Fire or Ground (for example, Ponyta or Geodude).                       |
|                                                                           |
| I recommend all of those Pokémon that fight are above level 33, but Lv. 25|
| is risky, but doable.                                                     |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

Upon winning, you gain the Cobble Badge and TM60 (Drain Punch). Exit the Gym.
Prof. Rowan's assistant comes to talk about the stolen Pokédex. Hurry and
heal. Head to the northwestern area.

|===========================================================================|
| This battle is much easier than back in D/P. The Professor's assistant has|
| a Clefairy, which isn't actually as useful as his/her starter, depending  |
| on your own starter.                                                      |
|									    |
| Both Zubats are weak against Psychic, Rock, Ice, and Electric moves. The  |
| Croagunk is weak against Psychic (4x), Flying, and Ground. Stunky is weak |
| against Ground and Fighting, while being immune to Psychic. If you have a |
| Pokémon with both Psychic and Fighting moves, such as Meditite, you'll be |
| fine.                                                                     |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

After winning, Prof. Rowan's assistant will get the Pokédex back. The police
from earlier, Looker, will then come and chat with you, leading you into the
warehouse. He will point out the HM to your right. Pick it up to get HM02 (Fly)
for your Flying Pokémon (or Mew).

Whenever you're ready, head south on Route 214.

| Forgot to document the trainer stuff for Rt. 214. Sorry......             |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

There have been a few changes here, aside from the idea that you're coming here
earlier than in D/P. Some trainers have rare Pokémon, like the Eevee evolutions
and a Porygon. If you have Rock Smash, go to the left and grab the Magmarizer,
which will evolve Magmar into Magmotar if it holds it while being traded. A
hidden Razor Fang can be found in the only part of the area lacking grass.

If you don't have Chimchar, Ponyta, or the like, it is a considerable idea to
grab Houndoom here. Rhyhorn is more of your choice; just remember it gained
a new evolution in this generation: Rhyperior.

Whenever you're done, go to Hotel Grand Lake; it is to the south.

)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
                               Hotel Grand Lake
)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Nothing much has changed since D/P. You can still the room key for the woman
by going to the northwest corner of the main office, looking up, and pressing
A. Give it to the locked-out woman, then go inside and talk to her to get the
White Flute, which increases how often you find wild Pokémon.

Next, go into the room to the left of the lobby. There, you will find three
people. The clown in the back will give you TM92 (Trick Room), which will let
the slowest Pokémon go first, but only for five turns.

Next, you can go into the restaurant. There are trainers inside that change
daily. They seem to about the level you should be at, so they may give you
some decent EXP. and EVs. Whenever you're ready, go through the main office
onto Route 213.

Nothing much here. There are some trainers, some places to get to with Rock
Climb later in the game, and Chatot (only useful for the Pokédex).

As in D/P, there is a hut near the beach. Enter it and talk to the man and,
if your lead Pokémon is happy enough, you'll get a Ribbon.

Whenever you're ready, get on over to Pastoria City, which is to the west.

In Pastoria, there is not just the fifth Gym. There is the Great Marsh, the
D/P version of the Safari Zone seen in Red, Blue, Yellow; their remakes called
FireRed and Leafgreen; as well as HeartGold and SoulSilver for Nintendo DS. For
unknown reasons, it was kept out of the second generation. Hm. There is also
the Move Tutor near the eastern water. You will need a Heart Scale found
Underground or on wild Luvdisc. There is also a man who gives out scarfs to
boost Contest stats. It is in the easternmost house. However, the stat must be
COMPLETELY MAXED OUT. Really tough to do unless from a trade.

Now, for the main thing. The Great Marsh, as I said earlier, is the Safari
Zone of Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. Here, you are given 30 Safari Balls
once you pay the $500 fee. Within the time it takes to walk 500 in-game steps
or to use 30 Safari Balls, you are allowed to catch some rare Pokémon. Some,
like Croagunk, can only be found here. It is entirely optional at this point,
though. If you DO go there, talk to the guy at the start; he'll give you a
Yellow Shard (not HM05, like in D/P).

There is also a lady in a house on the eastern side that gives out berries
every day. But let's get on to the Gym, shall we? There, you'll find your
rival. Battle!

|                                Ponyta (Lv. 32) Fire                       |
|                                Grotle (Lv. 36) Grass                      |
|===========================================================================|
| Unlike D/P, you'll fight BEFORE entering the Gym; not after.              |
|                                                                           |
| Staravia is weak to your Electric, Ice, and Rock moves. Too easy.         |
|                                                                           |
| Buizel is also weak against Electric moves, as well as Grass moves. Also  |
| easy.                                                                     |
|                                                                           |
| Roselia is weak against Fire, Ice, Bug, and Psychic moves. Piece of cake. |
|                                                                           |
| Ponyta, being Fire, is weak against Rock, Water, and Ground moves. Is this|
| too easy or what? Well, not really.                                       |
|                                                                           |
| Monferno is a pain without any Flying, Water, or Psychic types. with a    |
| Gyarados, you should be fine.                                             |
|                                                                           |
| Prinplup is essentially a stronger Buizel. A Grass or Electric type is    |
| best against this one, just like with Buizel.                             |
|                                                                           |
| Grotle is essentially a stronger Roselia. Flying types work best, as they |
| do double damage and take half. Fire is also okay. Ice and Bug will also  |
| do double.                                                                |
|                                                                           |
| Recommendations: Luxio, Gyrados, Roselia, Staravia, and your starter. All |
| of these, at worst, should be at Lv. 31 or so, comfortably at Lv. 39+.    |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

After the battle, you'll rival will leave. Return to the Pokémon Center, heal
up, do some more shopping, and enter the Pokémon Gym.

| Pokémon: Gyarados (Lv. 33) Water/Flying                                   |
|          Quagsire (Lv. 34) Water/Ground                                   |
|          Floatzel (Lv. 37) Water                                          |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Let's break it down:                                                      |
|                                                                           |
| Gyarados is pretty powerful and knows Swagger. It only takes regular      |
| damage from Grass, but Electric attacks are crippling to it. So, use Luxio|
| against this guy.                                                         |
|                                                                           |
| Quagsire takes NO damage from Electric moves, being part Ground. However, |
| the dual Water/Ground makes 4x damage be dealt on him with Grass moves.   |
|                                                                           |
| Floatzel can has probably become the most deadly since D/P. Your possible |
| idea of using a Grass or Flying type has been smashed: it knows Ice Fang. |
| You shouldn't use Psychics or Ghosts; it knows Crunch. It also knows Aqua |
| Jet, eliminating Fire/Rock/Ground types (that you shouldn't be using      |
| here!). The best bet is another Electric type, like with Gyarados.        |
|                                                                           |
| You should have Pokémon of level 35 or higher for this fight if you do not|
| have any recommended type. If you have all recommended types, Lv. 32+.    |
| You should just have them at Lv. 33+ by now, though.                      |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

Once you win, you get the Fen Badge and TM55, Brine. To get out, just go
around the outer edges.

Once outside, your rival will reappear (not a battle, for once) and then talk
to you. After that, Wake will come out and run off with your partner. Follow
them north to the Great Marsh and talk to Wake to see a cutscene with a
Galactive Grunt heading east. For now, you cannot go to the Great Marsh, so
heal up and whatever, then talk to the Galactic Grunt, who will return to
Route 213.

Exit to the east. You are now on Route 213.

Time to pester the grunt! As you go, like in D/P, just talk to the Grunt. As
you go, you'll go through Hotel Grand Lake. Continue pesting the Grunt.
You'll eventually get onto Route 214.

So, pester the Grunt one more time to battle him. 
 ___________________________
| Boss: Team Galactic Grunt \

| Pokémon: Croagunk (Lv. 31) Poison/Fighting                                |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Unlike D/P, the Grunt is using Croagunk, not Glameow. Well... Croagunk is |
| weak against Psychic, Flying, and Ground. So, use Kadabra, Staravia, or   |
| Graveler.								    |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

After the battle, Cynthia (remember Eterna?) will show up and chat with you.
Your rival soon comes. During the conversation, you'll get the SecretPotion,
a replica of the cure-all from Gold/Silver/Crystal and their remakes.

Head on north to Veilstone, and let's head back to that cafe.

There are some new ones. You should pick up Machoke if you don't want to waste
time training Machop. Pick up Noctowl for the HM Fly. Swablu has a decent-typed
evolved form: Altaria (Flying/Dragon), so it will be able to deal some damage
without being damaged as much itself.

At the start, most of this grass is tall, too tall for you to ride your Bike.
Also, unlike Pokémon Sapphire/Ruby/Emerald Versions, you cannot cut it using
Cut. There are some Trainers hidden here, but are weak.

Once you reach the foggy area, use/teach the HM Defog to a Pokémon to clear it
up here. In battle, this halves Accuracy for both sides.

There are many Trainers along the way, so fight until you cannot heal well
enough. There is around $10,000 ($20,000 with the Amulet Coin) on this route
coming from Trainers. Of course, the EVs are okay, too. Anyways, finish
crossing the bridge to get to Celestic Town.

| FYI, this isn't exactly a Pokémart. However, they sell the same stuff.    |

|___________________________________________________________________________|

Nothing much here. No Gym, no Pokémart. Go to the Pokémon Center and heal, shop
a bit, too. Browse around, and then head to the center of town, where a Team
Galactic Grunt is.
 ___________________________
| Boss: Team Galactic Grunt \
|____________________________\______________________________________________
| Pokémon: Houndour (Lv. 32) Fire/Dark                                      |
|          Golbat (Lv. 30) Poison/Flying                                    |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Houndour can be taken down via Fighting, Ghost, Rock, Ground, and Water;  |
| one of those you should have. As for Golbat, use Psychic, Electric, Rock, |
| or Ice. Remember, Houndour is immune to Psychic, and Golbat is immune to  |
| Ground.                                                                   |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

After defeating the Team Galactic Grunt, an old woman comes up. She thanks
you and you give her the charm Cynthia requested you to give to her. You'll be
taken into the ruins. When you go in, some things are explained to you. Cyrus,
the leader of Team Galactic, will then come and challenge you.

| Boss: Cyrus \
|______________\____________________________________________________________
| Pokémon: Sneasel (Lv. 34) Ice/Dark                                        |

|          Murkrow (Lv. 36) Dark/Flying                                     |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| This time, you'll be fighting Cyrus earlier than in D/P. He isn't much    |
| harder than the average Grunt, though.                                    |
|									    |
| Sneasel is weak against Fighting (4x) and Fire. It is immune to Psychic.  |
|								            |
| Golbat, like before, is weak against Ice, Electric, Rock, and Poison while|
| being immune to Ground.                                                   |
| 									    |
| Murkrow is weak against Ice, Electric, Rock, and Ghost; it is immune to   |
| Psychic and Ground.							    |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

After the battle, Cyrus will leave and you will be given an item: HM03 (Surf).
Teach to a Water type, such as Bibarel or Buizel (preferably Bibarel as it is
an HM slave). It is also very powerful; there are few Water-type moves that are
stronger.

Once you leave, you will find Cynthia. She will tell you to go to Canalave
City via Jubilife. May as well: the next Gym is there.

This is how I typically arrive at Jubilife.

*whew!* It'll be better when you get Fly, trust me. Heal up at the Pokémon
Center, do some shopping, then travel northward through the city until you
spot the TV station. From there, go west to Route 218.

Remember earlier in the game that could've gotten access to here? Well, sort
of: you couldn't get onto the water. Now, with Surf, you can. Simply Surf in a
westerly direction to reach Canalave, your destination.

In the gate to Canalave, Professor Rowan's assistant will give you an upgrade
to the Pokédex letting you see the differences between male and female Pokémon.
A prime example is Pikachu.

|                                Torterra (Lv. 38) Grass/Ground             |
|===========================================================================|
| As usual, let's go over each Pokémon's weaknesses and such:               |
|									    |
| Staraptor, like Starly and Staravia before it, is weak against Ice, Rock, |
| and Electric moves. It is immune to Ground.                               |
|									    |
| Floatzel, like Buizel before it, is weak against Grass and Electric.      |
|									    |
| Heracross is a new addition. It is weak against Flying (4x), Fire, Rock,  |
| and Psychic.                                                              |
|									    |
| Roserade, like Roselia before it, is weak against Flying, Ice, Fire, and  |
| Psychic.								    |
|									    |
| Rapidash, like Ponyta before it, is weak against Water, Rock, and Ground. |
|									    |
| Infernape, like Monferno, is weak against Water, Rock, Ground, Flying, and|
| Psychic.								    |
|									    |
| Empoleon is weak against Fighting, Electric, and Ground.                  |
|									    |
| Tortterra is weak against Flying, Bug, Fire, and Ice (4x).                |
|									    |
| Recommendations: Jolteon or the like with Thunder; Rapidash, Infernape,   |
| or the like with Fire and/or Fighting moves; Staraptor with a Flying move;|
| Tangela, Leafon, Torterra, or the like with some Grass move. Each should  |
| be Lv. 37 at the worst; Lv. 43 is a comfortable level.                    |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

Afterwards, you can explore a bit. The Move Deleter (north of Pokémon Center)
can delete any move, even HMs, if it isn't the only move it has. Using the boat
in the southwest, you can go to Iron Island. For now, head to the Gym.

To get to the Gym Leader:

> Go to the right and down the first turn. Get on the fourth platform.

> Go to the next platform along the path.

> Battle the trainer, then continue to the next platform.

> Get on the moving platform, then the next platform.

> In the next area, get on the north platform.

> Go past the first platform and battle the trainer. Go onto the uppermost
  platform.

> Ride the next platform over. From this point on, it will pretty much be
  straightforward. Keep going on the paths until you find a red platform, which
  will bring you to the gym leader.

You might want to leave and heal up. Here is a quick fun fact: do you remember
Roark (Gym #1: Oreburgh)? Byron (this Gym) is Roark's son!

Anyways, let the fight for the Mine Badge begin!

|                                                                           |
| Magneton should be familiar to all players if you've played some other    |
| game. Ground is its main weakness (4x). Fighting and Fire will do double  |
| damage, too.								    |
|                                                                           |
| Steelix is one of those types that seems impressive, but has many flaws in|
| their defenses. Water, Fire, Fighting, and Ground attacks ALL do double   |
| damage.                                                                   |
|                                                                           |
| Bastiodon has one the highest defenses of all generations (behind Shuckle |
| and some glitch Pokémon). Also, with some flaws. It does poor damage. It  |
| is weak against Water, Fighting, and Ground, all of which should do 4x    |
| damage. Use those with those of that are of that type, so that the damage |
| is quadrupled, then 50% is added, making it SIX TIMES THE NORMAL DAMAGE!! |
|                                                                           |
| Recommendations: Your starter, whatever it may be, at Lv. 41+; a Fire type|
| at Lv. 40+; a Fighting type at Lv. 40+; and a Water type at Lv. 40+.      |

Once you win, you get the Mine Badge and TM91 (Flash Cannon).

Head outside. You will now have to go to Iron Island, if you didn't do so
earlier. So, here we go! Go to the west side of the city and talk to a Captain
to set sail for Iron Island!

)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
                                 Iron Island
)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Upon disembarking, go up the stairs and past the house. Talk to the man that
is blocking the entrance into the island. He'll introduce himself as Riley and
give you HM04 (Strength).

Beyond the above, you don't have to do anything else. However, going on further
will give you some levels and an Egg and such.

When you enter, first go down the east stairs. From there, go south and east
until you see a second set of stairs. Go up them and continue on the ledge,
ignoring the first set of stairs. Past them, go south and west until you find
a lift. Go down it and onto the western path. You'll find Riley and team up
with him, like you did with Cheryl in the Eterna Forest.

Riley's main Pokémon is a Lucario. It is rather powerful and useful, unlike
Cheryl's Chansey.

Okay, after teaming up with Riley, go west until the battle. After that battle,
go south, east, south, and east until another battle. After THAT battle, go
down the path to the stairs. Go down and battle the Galactic Grunts. After
that, go down the stairs, down a little more, then up the western stairs to
find the final two Grunts. The battle itself can be won mostly with a Psychic
or Electric Pokémon.

After the battle, you will be asked if you want an Egg. Select to accept it to
get the Egg; it hatches into Riolu, the pre-evolved form of Lucario. If you do
not have room, you can return here later to get it. After you get the Egg,
Riley will leave and you'll have him as a Battle Tower partner.

When ready, exit and return to Canalave.

After Iron Island, go to the library. It is in the northwestern part of town.
There, you'll find Rowan, his assistant, and your rival. You will be told that
the three lakes -- Lake Valor, Lake Verity, and Lake Acuity -- are in trouble.

You will first go to Lake Valor. Begin by flying to Veilstone.

Anyways, you should remember this from when you were pestering the grunt. There
was a pathway through the trees near the Hotel Grand Lake that was blocked.
That pathway is no longer blocked. Go to it and you are in a drained Lake
Valor.

The path is pretty straightforward, with some battles. With the lake drained,
no Pokémon are here. Magikarp are everywhere, though you can't (or want to)
get them. Head into the cavern.

This path, too, is pretty straightforward. You can skip the battles via Surfing
and then miss out on $5,200 ($10,400 with the Amulet Coin). Either way, you
end up at Mars. (Not the planet (what is up with the names, anyway?))

There are a few new ones. Sneasel is Dark/Ice, meaning it is immune to Psychic
but takes 4x damage from Fighting. Snover is Grass/Ice and takes 4x damage from
Fire. As for Snorunt, it is worthwhile to evolve one: it'll become Ice/Ghost,
eliminating the Fighting weakness, as well as immunizing it from Normal.

You will notice that it is snowing, one of the new climatic effects for the
fourth generation. Weirdly, it HAILS, not SNOWS, in battle, causing damage to
all of the Pokémon on the field who are wholly/partially of the Ice type.

The route is fairly straightforward. Just before getting to Route 217, you can
rest at a house for to fully heal your team.

Thre isn't much difference from Route 216. It has almost the same Pokémon, and
it has battles and snow/hail. The hard part is the deep snow. You move so
freakin' slow it is unbelivable.

At first, hang to the left. Once you reach a house, an item should be near it.
If I'm correct, it should be HM08 (Rock Climb).

If you have an Eevee, hang to the right after getting the HM08. There will be
a frozen rock surrounded by some grass. If Eevee levels up near this rock, it
will evolve into Glaceon, another form of Eevee that is new to the fourth
generation.

Basically, hang to the north to get out of the snow. Once the are a becomes
more forested, you should be walking at normal speed. At this point, hang to
the east. You'll find the path to Lake Acuity. One problem: you need Rock
Climb to get there. Although you have the HM08 for it, you'll need the
Snowpoint Gym Badge to use it out of battle, so go east into the northernmost
city of Sinnoh: Snowpoint City.

The town is in an X formation. The Gym is in the center. The Pokémon Center
is where you should go next to heal up. The Pokémart has some items you need.
Stock up on the Repels for later.

You can head to the northwestern corner. In the house, you can trade a Medicham
for a Haunter. But it won't evolve -- it is holding an Everstone. (This is a
funny way to screw with your friends).

Once you are ready, head to the Gym (center of Snowpoint City).

|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Well, that is new. Most of her Pokémon are naturally found on Rt. 216 or  |
| Rt. 217. Anyways, onto weaknesses.                                        |
|                                                                           |
| Abomasnow takes 4x damage from Fire and 2x damage from Fighting, Poison,  |
| Bug, Flying, Rock, and Steel. Lucario, Infernape, or Rapidash is best.    |
|                                                                           |
| Sneasel takes 4x damage from Fighting and 2x damage from Fire, Rock, Bug, |
| and Steel. A Pokémon like Machoke/Machamp is best here, or Lucario.       |
|                                                                           |
| Piloswine takes double damage from Fighting, Fire, and Steel attacks.     |
|									    |
| Froslass is the worst of the bunch. She tends use a lot of Double Team and|
| then hit with stuff like Shadow Ball and Psychic. The faster she is gone, |
| the better. She is weak against Steel, Fire, and Dark.                    |
|                                                                           |
| You should have a Fire type at Lv. 42+; a Fighting type at Lv. 41+; and a |
| Steel type around Lv. 42. Your starter may help around Lv. 42+.           |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

Upon winning, you get the Icicle Badge and TM72 (Avalanche). Now that you have
the 7th badge, teach a Pokémon Rock Climb and return to Rt. 217.

Once inside, press A to open the shutters. Grab the item (Dusk Stone) and head
downstairs.

-~ B2F ~-
Here there are several battles. Just head to the right until you see a set of
stairs. Use them to go up to the next floor.

-~ B1F ~-
Battle the grunt, use the stairs.

-~ 1F ~-
Head down and to the left. Battle the grunt and you'll see some warp panels
similar to those seen in R/S/E. The right leads to a dead end with an item. The
left allows you to continue on. The room has another warp panel, which leads to
a set of stairs. Use them to get to the next floor.

-~ 2F ~-
Ignore the stairs and head to the left for a warp panel. It warps you to an area
with more stairs. Go down the stairs.

-~ 1F ~-
There is a scientist and some more stairs. Use the stairs.

-~ B1F ~-
Go to the left, battle the grunt, and pick up the item, the Galactic Key. Open
the shutters to your left and exit to Veilstone.

Heal up, and head to the east side of the city. Go up the stairs to the spiky
building and enter through the left or middle door.

)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
Head to the middle of the room and unlock that door. Go up the stairs. In the
next room, go to the right to find two Grunts. Battle them and continue to the
right to find a TV room with a warp and two warps to the right. The two warps
to the right will net you a Green Shard and Max Revive. Use the TV room warp.

After that, you'll see a lot of Team Galactic members and Looker. Go to the
left to start a cutscene, in which Cyrus explains their plans. After Looker
speaks, go to the left for a warp.

This room will have some beds and stairs. Press A near a bed to rest up. When
ready, go up the stairs. In the next room, you'll find two Grunts to the left.
Battle them and continue left to find three warps. The leftmost one will let
you continue. In the next room, go up the stairs to find a room with Cyrus
inside. When you enter, you'll chat, then battle.

| Boss: Cyrus \
|______________\____________________________________________________________
| Pokémon: Sneasel (Lv. 44) Dark/Ice                                        |
|          Honchkrow (Lv. 46) Dark/Flying                                   |
|          Crobat (Lv. 44) Poison/Flying                                    |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Now, the weaknesses... Sneasel is weak against Fighting (4x), Fire, Bug,  |
| and Steel. It is immune to Psychic.					    |
|                                                                           |
| Honchkrow is the toughest of the trio. Ice, Ghost, Rock, and Electric are |
| its weaknesses. It is immune to Ground and Psychic.                       |
|                                                                           |
| Crobat, like Zubat and Golbat, is weak against Psychic, Rock, Electric,   |
| and Ice.								    |
|                                                                           |
| For this battle, you should bring an Electric type, such as Luxray, at Lv.|
| 47+, a Fire type at Lv. 45+, and an Ice type at Lv. 46+. You should not   |
| use any Grass types, or anything that these have advantages over, or it is|
| over for you!                                                             |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

After winning... OH YEAH! The Master Ball! This is one of two balls with a 100%
catch rate (the other being Pal Park only). You can also get a Master Ball at
the lottery, but the odds are 1/10000, which is a 0.01% chance if you don't
ever trade/import. Each new trade/import increases the odds.

Head back to the bed room and heal up. Head to the right of where Cyrus was and
use the warp. Head to the next room. You see the legendary trio and Commander
Saturn. Another battle!
 ________________________
| Boss: Commander Saturn \
|_________________________\_________________________________________________
| Pokémon: Golbat (Lv. 42) Poison/Flying                                    |
|          Bronzor (Lv. 42) Steel/Psychic                                   |
|          Toxicroak (Lv. 44) Fighting/Poison                               |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| The weaknesses should be obvious by now. Golbat's are Ice, Rock, Electric,|
| and Psychic. Bronzor's is Fire. Toxicroak's are Flying, Ground, and       |
| Psychic.   								    |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

Hm. He was mildly stronger than before, but weaker than Cyrus. Anywho...

You are told to press the button. Do so and Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf are
released. Galactic's members have gone to Mt. Coronet for a final showdown.

But wait a minute. Considering what will be happening, you really need to be
prepared. I recommend the following:

> Items: 1 Escape Rope, 10+ Revives, 25+ Repels, 40+ Super/Hyper Potions.
> All Pokémon to be, at minimum, level 50.
> An Electric type Pokémon, such as Luxray.
> Depending on whether you wish to use or save the Master Ball, I'll settle the
  argument: buy a lot of Ultra Balls. A crapload.
> Bibarel with the HMs Rock Climb, Surf, Strength, and Rock Smash.

Once you are ready, Fly to Oreburgh. Head east into Mt. Coronet.

)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
                                 Mt. Coronet

Please that these are the encounter rates for D/P; there probably are a few
differences.

Simply enough, enter the mountain.

Begin by going to the northeast part of the first floor. Surf across and use
Rock Climb to get access to the stairs.

In the next area, go north and west to find a boulder. Push it down with
Strength to continue, then go up the stairs, then up until you find a bridge
heading west. Go across the bridge and down and up until you see a second
bridge going east. Go over that bridge and west to find a cave entrnace. Looker
will appear, telling you someone opened the path to the summit. You'll also get
the Black Flute (reduces chance of a wild battle). Continue to the next room.

In the next area, go north and west to find some stairs. Go up them to be in a
room with staits to the right and stairs going up. Use the upward stairs and
fight the Grunts at the top. Go to the end of the path to go outside.

Outside, go east and up until you see a rock wall. Go up it and to the west to
find some grass and a boulder. Either push the boulder down or go through the
grass to continue. The entrance is in the northwest.

Back inside, go north and climb the wall. Battle the Grunts you find and go
along the path until you find a path to the outside on the right. Go outside.
Then go to the right and up. You'll find two walls you'll need Rock Climb to
climb. Take left one, then continue to right to find the cave entrnace. Go
inside.

Back inside, go to the right to find some stairs. Go up them to find a linear
decline. Fight the Grunts as you go down. Continue to the left to find the
entrance to another room. In the next room, go up to find another Grunt. Beat
him and continue up to the Spear Pillar.

Another double battle with some grunts, and then a boss double battle. Your
rival will help this time.

|===========================================================================|
| This is one the HARDEST battles in this game. The enemy has a full party  |
| of six, with an average level of 44 2/3.                                  |
|                                                                           |
| The main problem is that you're fighting two of the same most of the time.|
| The Bronzors are the same as previous battles; use Fire moves.            |
|                                                                           |
| The Golbat are also the same; use Ice/Rock/Electric/Psychic moves.        |
|                                                                           |
| The Purugly and Skunktank can really take a large bit of damage. Purugly  |
| is weak against Fighting moves (e.g., Machop, Lucario). The Skunktank is  |
| weak against Ground moves (e.g., Graveler, Onix).                         |
|                                                                           |
| In this battle, beware of moves that hit all Pokémon, such as Surf and    |
| Earthquake. For this, you should have an Electric/Ice/Rock/Type at Lv. 45+|
| or the Graveler/Golem at the same level, a Fighting type (Machoke/Machamp)|
| at Lv. 46+, and (if without a Rock/Ground type) a Graveler/Golem/Onix at  |
| around Lv. 46. No one should be at a level lower than 43.                 |

You rival will heal you after the battle, then run off. You will scene a scene
where Cyrus summons both Dialga and Palkia, then is sucked into another
dimension. Cynthia will show up, telling you the world will be destroyed unless
something is done. You will transported to the Distortion World.

                               Distortion World
)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Once in the Distortion World, Cynthia, will run off. If you wish to go back
to the Spear Pillar, use the nearby portal. Okay, here we go!

Begin by going to the right and hopping down to where Cynthia is. She will tell
you that the platform moves if you step in a certain spot; in this case, it is
the middle that makes it go down.

On the next floor, hop over the stones to the left to see Mesprit for a second.
Step on the gray spot near the floating platform to float to the sideways
platform. Go east and press down to get off of the platform. Continue east to
find another platform that goes down.

On the third floor, go forward some to find moving platform. Decide to go
forward, then left to see Cynthia again. Talk to her and go past her. Jump down
onto another moving platform, then go right, right, down, left, up, and right.
You'll then find a platform to the fourth floor.

There, go down to make a platform appear. Cyrus will chat with you for a bit,
then leave. Go down, right, and up to find a shadow platform. When it
materializes, jump on it, go right and down on the second row to materialize
another platform. Jump on it and go right to find the platform that will take
you to Floor 5.

On the fifth floor, go left onto the jumping stones. Uxie will appear near a
boulder. Push it to the lower level. Go to the bottom side of the put and jump
down to the other side to find a moveable platform that'll take you to the
sixth floor.

On the sixth floor, jump up and push the boulder to the bottom of the three
holes. Uxie will run off. Return to the elevator and jump to the left to see
Mesprit direct you to push the boulder into the hole. Push the boulder down to
next floor. Go down and hop onto the elevator and return to the fourth floor.

On the fourth floor, go continually north until Giratina flies by. When it
does, go east until the end. Go down to find a platform leading the third
floor.

On the third floor, go left then down to a shadow platform, then right, up,
and right to find a platform to the fourth floor.

On the fourth floor, go up and surf to the right. You'll Giratina again. Keep
going to the right until your perspective changes; push up to jump onto the
floating platform. Go up to hop onto another platform. You'll find a waterfall
going the wrong way; surf on the water. Go near the waterfall and you'll be on
the fifth floor.

Azelf will then appear, directing you to drop the boulder down the hole. Do so
and then use the elevator to the left to return to the sixth floor.

On the sixth floor, go to the left and push the boulder down the hole near
Mesprit; it will then fly off. Go to the right and push the boulder down the
hole near Azelf; it will fly off. Talk to Cynthia on the south side to find an
elevator to the seventh floor.

On the seventh floor, save or you'll do all of this if you lose and return to
the other world. When you go forward, Cyrus will talk to Cynthia. And then,
you'll battle.

| Okay, simple enough. He is just a bit stronger than the previous battle.  |
|                                                                           |
| Houndoom is weak against Water, Rock, Ground, and Fighting. It is immune  |
| to Psychic. It is fairly strong and favors Flamethrower.                  |
|                                                                           |
| Honchkrow is weak against Ice, Rock, Ghost, and Electric. It is immune to |
| Psychic and Ground.							    |
|                                                                           |
| Crobat is weak against Ice, Electric, Psychic, and Rock. It is immune to  |
| Ground.							            |
|                                                                           |
| Gyarados is weak against Electric (4x). It is immune to Ground.           |
|                                                                           |
| Weavile is weak against Fighting (4x), Fire, Bug, and Steel.              |
|                                                                           | 
| For this, you should have an Electric type, such as Luxray, at around Lv. |
| 48+ and a Fire/Fighting/Steel type at around Lv. 49.                      |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

Afterwards, Cyrus will run off and Cynthia will heal you. Save now, lest you
somehow screw up during the next fight. When ready, approach Giratina.

|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Capture Method #1: Use the Master Ball.                                   |
|                                                                           |
| Capture Method #2: Use a Quick Ball. If it fails, weaken it in the next 3 |
| (EXACTLY THREE!) turns, then retry. Alternately, weaken it for 4 turns and|
| try. The Quick Ball has a 4x capture in the first FIVE turns.             |
|                                                                           |
| KO Method: Be warned, you will only be able to get this by trading if you |
| do KO it. To start, there aren't many weaknesses. For this one, use Dark  |
| or Ice or Dragon moves.                                                   |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

When finished, a portal appears, sending you to Sendoff Spring (where Giratina
was in D/P). Exit the spring and return to Veilstone.

Fly (or travel by foot) back to Sandgem.

In Sandgem, you should go to Professor Rowan's lab. You will greeted and told
that the Lake Trio (Mesprit, Uxie, and Azelf) are where they used to be. This
means you can go catch them at their lakes now. You are also told that, to get
the final/eighth badge, you'll have to go to Sunyshore.

I am pretty sure that you have been weakened and have a depleted item supply,
so heal at the Pokémon Center and shop some. Once you feel ready, head to

There are quite a few different Pokémon here compared to D/P. If you need an
Electric Pokémon, this is the spot.

In the houses is a Trainer who trains only Pikachu; he has 6. The house to its
right has a fisherman who'll give you a Net Ball if you catch a big Remoraid.
Not worth the effort, though.

This route is mostly straightforward and short, so just head east until you
reach Sunyshore.

Upon entering, you meet Flint, a member of the Sinnoh Elite Four. He tells you
that the Gym Leader Volkner is upset over something, so you should check it
out. But first, let's look around.

In the northwestern area, you can buy seals that vary day by day. They can make
some unusual effects occur when you send the Pokémon with the Seals on their
Pokéball out. In that same shop, you can get an Effort Ribbon if your Pokémon
in the front of the party has 510 EVs, which I think is the maximum amount.

In the far northern area, you can talk to the Gym Leader from Johto, Jasmine.
She'll give you HM07 (Waterfall), but only if you have beaten Volkner.

In the northeastern area, you can talk to this girl in a house and, if you
choose a word (any word, doesn't matter), she'll give the lead Pokémon a
Ribbon. There are seven Ribbons, one for each day of the week.

North of the lighthouse is a guy in a house that you need to use Rock Climb to
get to. If you show him Pokémon of a specific nature (e.g. Calm, Docile, Hasty)
he'll give you a (usually useless) Pokétch app.

Okay, now that's over with. Shop a good bit and heal up. Head over to the
lighthouse and go inside. Go to the top floor and talk to the Gym Leader.
Go back to the Gym and save.

Enter the Gym.

Ugh... I have hated these for a long time. Anyways, it isn't too hard.

-~ Room #1 ~-
Head onto the platform and press the green button (x1) and exit off of the
bottom. Get on the other platform and press the green button (x1) to make a
path to the ledge and Trainer.

-~ Room #2 ~-
Go onto the only open platform and press the blue button (x3). Get onto the
new pathway. Head on the left platform and head all around and battle the
Trainer. Get onto the platform and press the blue button (x1). This creates a
path. Go on it and get on the next platform, and press the green button to make
another path. Get off from the right and head to the gear and ledge with the
door.

-~ Room #3 ~-
Get onto the platform and press the red button (x1). Get off of it and get onto
the one on the left. Press that red button (x1) and get off and battle the
Trainer. Go over the bridge to the other side and battle the next Trainer. Now
get onto the platform with the green button and press it three times. Continue
on down the new path. Press the blue button until a northward path is made to
go to the next ledge. Head right and down, battling the Trainer and going over
the bridge. Get to the bottom and head to the platform on the right with the
red button and press it once. Get off of it and over the bridge to the path to
Volkner! Let's do this!!

| Volkner, like the rest of the Gym Leaders, has beefed up since D/P. They  |
| are all about 2 levels higher, and his party is nothing but Electric-type |
| Pokémon.								    |
|                                                                           |
| As you should know by this point in the game, pure Electric types         |
| (eg. Volkner's whole party) are weak against Ground only. They have a     |
| type-based advantage over Flying and Water types.			    |
|                                                                           |
| One thing noteworthy is Luxray. It has Ice Fang, which will easily hurt a |
| Torterra for quadruple damage. Additionally, it has Crunch, which can also|
| put Giratina out of the running.					    |
|                                                                           |
| You should have a Torterra, Rhyperior/Rhydon, or Graveler/Golem. Any of   |
| these shall work at Lv. 48+. Keep your starter and Giratina, as well as   |
| any other strong Pokémon, at Lv. 48., too.                                |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

Upon winning, you gain the Beacon Badge and TM57 (Charge Beam).

Finally, you have all eight badges. You have one last task: beat the Elite Four
and become Sinnoh's Pokémon Champion. Only one more route, one more cavern, and
some battles stand in your way.

Spend absolutely all of your money at the Pokémart on items, namely Full Heals,
Revives, Hyper Potions, and Repels. Buy some Pokéballs, too, if you want.

Get that Bibarel and make sure it knows Surf, Waterfall, Rock Smash, and
Strength. Have another Pokémon know Rock Climb. Heal up at the Pokémon Center
and head the northernmost part of Sunyshore. Talk to Jasmine if you don't have
HM07 (Waterfall). Start surfing northward.

You may want to catch a Mantyke for your Pokédex, as you can't breed two
Mantine for it. You can also get it to evolve into a Mantine.

This must be the most straightforward route (except Rt. 222). Just head on
north until you reach an island. Go around it, then back north again. Soon,
you will reach a waterfall. If you actually have a Pokémon with Waterfall
taught to it, you will be able to proceed.

On the top, go into the Pokémon Center and heal up. Make sure you have plenty
of Revives, Potions, and status healers, as you will not see another place to
heal until you reach the other side, which is a very LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG way
away. Save the game, and head into Victory Road.

| Pokémon (if you chose Piplup): Staraptor (Lv. 48) Normal/Flying           |
|                                Floatzel (Lv. 47) Water                    |

|                                Rapidash (Lv. 47) Fire                     |
|                                Snorlax (Lv. 49) Normal                    |
|                                Torterra (Lv. 51) Grass/Ground             |
|===========================================================================|
| Staraptor, like Starly and Staravia before it, is weak against Ice, Rock, |
| and Electric moves. It is immune to Ground.                               |
|									    |
| Floatzel, like Buizel before it, is weak against Grass and Electric.      |
|									    |
| Heracross is weak against Flying (4x), Fire, Rock, and Psychic.           |
|									    |
| Roserade, like Roselia before it, is weak against Flying, Ice, Fire, and  |
| Psychic.								    |
|									    |
| Rapidash, like Ponyta before it, is weak against Water, Rock, and Ground. |
|									    |
| Snorlax is more of a staller. Your starter, a Ghost type, or a Fighting   |
| type do well. Fighting is its only weakness.                              |
|									    |
| Infernape, like Monferno, is weak against Water, Rock, Ground, Flying, and|
| Psychic.								    |
|									    |
| Empoleon is weak against Fighting, Electric, and Ground.                  |
|									    |
| Tortterra is weak against Flying, Bug, Fire, and Ice (4x).                |
|									    |
| Recommendations: Luxray or another Electric type at Lv. 48+; Staraptor or |
| another Flying type at Lv. 49+; Gengar or the like at Lv. 48+; Golem or   |
| Graveler at Lv. 48+; a Fighting type at Lv. 49+; your starter at Lv. 50+. |
|___________________________________________________________________________|

Now your rival gets furious and exits. Okay, we need to make a good team.

The first battle is up against Bug types, so a main type needed is Fire or
Flying. The second is up against Ground types, so Water/Grass/Ice is needed,
but NEVER Electric (in the second). The third is up against Fire types, so
Rock/Ground/Water is needed. The fourth is up against Psychic types, so you
might need some Ghost/Dark types, although it isn't hard. The final battle is
a mishmash of everything.

So, in essence, you'd think that a Fire type, a Water type, and a Ghost type
could sum it all up for your party. Really, just three? Why not cover some more
weaknesses? Here is a decent list; all of the Pokémon should be Lv. 51+.

- Your starter
- A Fire type, such as Infernape, Rapidash, or Magmar/Magmotar
- A Water type, such as Gyarados. Surf is a preferred move.
- A Pokémon with a move-type variety (eg. Ice Beam, Fire Blast, Surf, Crunch).
- Giratina, of course!
- Graveler/Golem/Rhydon/Rhyperior should accompany the sixth slot.

Hopefully, you have the EXP. Share. Put it on any of the Pokémon in your party
so that it'll level up even faster.

Okay then, shop with all of your cash. Buy many Revives, Full Heals, and Full
Restores (or Hyper Potions, if your Pokémon have less than 200 HP). When you
feel you are ready, go talk to the guy blocking the doorway; if you have all
eight Gym Badges, you'll be allowed to enter. Good luck!

| Pokémon: Yanmega (Lv. 53) Bug/Flying                                      |
|          Scizor (Lv. 53) Bug/Steel                                        |
|          Vespiquen (Lv. 54) Bug/Flying                                    |
|          Heracross (Lv. 54) Bug/Fighting                                  |
|          Drapion (Lv. 54) Poison/Dark                                     |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Being the first, he has many weaknesses. Fire/Flying being two.           |
|                                                                           |
| Yanmega is a new addition since D/P. It is weak against Ice, Rock, Fire,  |
| Flying, and Electric. It can use U-turn and Bug Buzz to severely damage   |
| Grass and Psychic type Pokémon. Air Slash will hurt Fighting, Bug, and    |
| Grass types.                                                              |
|                                                                           |
| Scizor is another new addition. It is weak against Fire (4x) and Fighting |
| type moves. It has Steel Head (Steel), Night Slash (Dark), Quick Attack   |
| (Normal), and X-Scissor (Bug). Therefore, its moves can greatly damage    |
| Rock, Ice, Ghost, Psychic, and Grass types.                               |
|                                                                           |
| Vespiquen is, like Yanmega, weak against Rock, Ice, Fire, Flying, and     |
| Electric moves. Its one offensive move, Attack Order, is a powerful Bug   |
| type move; it'll do double damage against Psychic and Grass.              |
|                                                                           |
| Heracross is weak against Flying (4x), Fire, and Psychic attacks. It has  |
| Stone Edge (Rock), Close Combat (Fighting), Earthquake (Ground; hits all),|
| and Night Slash (Dark). Therefore, it can deal double damage to Ice,      |
| Flying, Fire, Rock, Steel, Normal, Psychic, and Ghost types. Giratina or  |
| Staraptor are the primary choices.					    |
|                                                                           |
| Drapion, the only non-Bug, is weak against Ground and Fighting. Its moves |
| Cross Poison (Poison), Aerial Ace (Flying), Ice Fang (Ice), and X-Scissor |
| (Bug) will do double damage to one of the Grass, Fighting, Bug, Flying,   |
| Ground, or Psychic type. Your strongest Pokémon with a Ground move, such  |
| as Earthquake, is recommended.                                            |

| Pokémon: Gliscor (Lv. 54) Ground/Flying                                   |
|          Rhyperior (Lv. 55) Ground/Rock                                   |
|          Golem (Lv. 52) Ground/Rock                                       |
|          Whiscash (Lv. 50) Water/Ground                                   |
|          Hippowdon (Lv. 52) Ground                                        |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Gliscor is weak against Ice (4x) and Water. It is immune to Ground and    |
| Electric. It has Fire Fang, Thunder Fang, Ice Fang, and Earthquake, which |
| will hurt Bug, Grass, Steel, Flying, Water, Ground, Rock, Dragon, Ice, and|
| Electric types. Porygon with an Ice attack or someone with Ice Punch is   |
| good.								            |
|                                                                           |
| Rhyperior is weak against Grass (4x), Water (4x), Steel, Ice, Fighting,   |
| and Ground. It can use Avalanche (Ice), Megahorn (Bug), Earthquake        |
| (Ground), and Rock Wrecker (Rock). Therefore, it may do double damage to  |
| Grass, Flying, Ground, Psychic, Rock, Steel, Fire, and Ice types. Anyone  |
| with a Grass/Water attack is highly recommended.			    |
|                                                                           |
| Golem, like Rhyperior, is weak against Grass (4x), Water (4x), Ice, Steel,|
| Ground, and Fighting. It, however, has Fire Punch (Fire), Thunderpunch    |
| (Electric), and Earthquake (Ground; hits all). It can do double damage to |
| Bug, Grass, Ice, Flying, Water, Rock, Fire, Electric, and Steel types.    |
| Like with Rhyperior, a Water/Grass move is recommended.                   |
|                                                                           |
| Whiscash is weak solely against Grass (4x). It can use Zen Headbutt       |
| (Psychic), Earth Power (Ground), and Aqua Tail (Water); thus, it may do   |
| double damage to Fighting, Poison, Rock, Fire, Steel, and Ground types.   |
| Remember it is immune to Electric; Grass moves are recommended.           |
|                                                                           |
| Hippowdon is a pure Ground type, and is therefore weak to Grass, Ice, and |
| Water. It can use Crunch (Dark), Earthquake (Ground), and Stone Edge      |
| (Rock). As such, it may do double damage to Psychic, Ghost, Rock, Steel,  |
| Fire, Electric, Poison, and Flying types. A Water or Grass type Pokémon is|
| recommended, or at least a move of that type.                             |

|          Houndoom (Lv. 52) Fire/Dark                                      |
|          Magmotar (Lv. 57) Fire                                           |
|          Flareon (Lv. 55) Fire                                            |
|          Infernape (Lv. 55) Fire/Fighting                                 |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Rapidash is weak against Rock, Ground, and Water moves. It can use Solar- |
| beam (Grass (!)), Flare Blitz (Fire), and Bounce (Flying). Therefore, it  |
| can seriously hurt Water, Rock, Ground, Bug, Ice, Grass, and Fighting     |
| Pokémon. It may also use Sunny Day (weaken Water; strengthen Fire; allow  |
| instant use of Solarbeam). Something that can withstand Solarbeam, like a |
| Gyarados or Empoleon, is recommended.                                     |
|                                                                           |
| Houndoom is weak against Rock, Ground, Water, and Fighting; it is immune  |
| to Psychic. It has Flamethrower (Fire), Dark Pulse (Dark), and Sludge Bomb|
| (Poison); as such, it can severely hurt Ice, Grass, Bug, Steel, Ghost,    |
| and Psychic types. Any Water/Rock/Ground type will work.		    |
|                                                                           |
| Magmotar is weak against Rock, Water, and Ground. It can use Flamethrower |
| (Fire), Solarbeam (Grass), Thunderbolt (Electric), and Hyper Beam (Normal)|
| to hurt you; as such, it'll do double to Ice, Steel, Grass, Bug, Water,   |
| Flying, Rock, and Ground. Empoleon and Gyarados are recommended, or those |
| like them.								    |
|                                                                           |
| Flareon is weak against Water, Rock, and Ground. It can use Overheat      |
| (Fire), Giga Impact (Normal?), and Quick Attack (Normal). As such, it is  |
| one of the weaker of the bunch, only doing double damage to Grass, Ice,   |
| Bug, and Steel types. A Water/Rock/Ground type will do fine.              |
|                                                                           |
| Infernape is still easily the strongest. It is weak against Water, Flying,|
| Psychic, and Ground. It can use Flare Blitz (Fire), Mach Punch (Fighting),|
| Thunderpunch (Electric), and Earthquake (Ground). Therefore, it can do    |
| extra damage to Ice, Grass, Bug, Steel, Rock, Ice, Water, Flying, and Fire|
| types. A Flying Pokémon, like Staraptor, or a Ground type will work well. |

|          Bronzong (Lv. 54) Steel/Psychic                                  |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Mr. Mime is weak against Ghost, Bug, and Dark. It can offensively use     |
| Psychic and Thunderbolt; therefore, it'll do extra damage to Poison,      |
| Water, Flying, and Fighting types. Giratina, Gengar, and the like are     |
| recommended.								    |
|                                                                           |
| Espeon is also weak against Ghost, Bug, and Dark. It will use Quick       |
| Attack (Normal), Psychic (Psychic), Shadow Ball (Ghost), and Signal Beam  |
| (Bug); as such, it'll do extra damage to Poison, Fighting, Ghost, Psychic,|
| and Grass types. A Dark type, such as Spiritomb or Houndoom is preferred. |
|                                                                           |
| Gallade is a new addition and is weak against Flying, Dark, and Bug. It   |
| can use Psycho Cut (Psychic), Leaf Blade (Grass), Stone Edge (Rock), and  |
| Drain Punch (Fighting?). As such, it'll do double damage to Fighting,     |
| Poison, Water, Rock, Ground, Ice, and Flying. Some non-Flying type with a |
| Flying move (ie. Giratina with Fly) is a good choice.                     |
|                                                                           |
| Alakazam is weak against Dark, Ghost, and Bug. It may use Psychic         |
| (Psychic), Energy Ball (Grass), and Focus Blast (Normal?). It can do extra|
| damage to Fighting, Poison, Water, Rock, and Ground types. A Dark or Ghost|
| type, such as Giratina or Houndoom, will work well.			    |
|                                                                           |
| Bronzong is weak against Fire, Ghost, and Dark. It can use Gyro Ball      |
| (Steel), Earthquake (Ground), and Psychic (Psychic); it'll therefore do   |
| double damage to Rock, Ice, Fire, Steel, Fighting, and Poison. Something  |
| with a Ghost or Dark move (ie. Giratina) is preferred.                    |

|          Lucario (Lv. 60) Steel/Fighting                                  |
|          Milotic (Lv. 58) Water                                           |
|          Garchomp (Lv. 62) Dragon/Ground                                  |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Okay, this is it! The final battle! This six-on-six is all that stands    |
| between you and your well-deserved championship! Do not for any single    |
| nanosecond be afraid to use those Revives and Full Restores. This is the  |
| smartest AI in this game; even my Lv. 100 legendaries have trouble here at|
| times. I am serious!                                                      |
|                                                                           |
| Spiritomb is most likely new to you. Guess what? It has absolutely no     |
| weaknesses; Sableye is the only other to be like this. It can dish out    |
| Silver Wind (Bug), Psychic (Psychic), Shadow Ball (Ghost), and Dark       |
| Pulse (Dark). Grass, Psychic, Fighting, Poison, Ghost, and Dark types will|
| be hit with double damage at one point, possibly. Your strongest Pokémon, |
| preferably your starter, it recommended.				    |
|                                                                           |
| Roserade is weak against Flying, Psychic, and Ice. It may use Energy      |
| Ball (Grass), Sludge Bomb (Poison), and Extrasensory; this can mean extra |
| damage to Rock, Water, Ground, Grass, Fighting, and Poison types. A Fire, |
| Ice, or Flying type will do well enough.				    |
|                                                                           |
| Togekiss is weak against Electric, Ice, and Rock; it is immune to Ground  |
| and Ghost. It can use Aura Sphere (Ice?), Water Pulse (Water), Shock Wave |
| (Electric; won't miss), and Air Slash (Flying). As such, Grass, Flying,   |
| Ground, Rock, Fire, Water, Fighting, and Bug types will take double       |
| damage. An Electric type or an Ice type is recommended.                   |
|                                                                           |
| Milotic is weak against Grass and Electric. It can use Surf (Water) and   |
| Ice Beam (Ice). Thus, double damage may be dealt to Rock, Fire, Ground,   |
| and Flying types. Also, Mirror Coat will deflect Special attacks at the   |
| user, so beware. Something with a physical Electric attack (such as       |
| Thunderpunch or Volt Tackle) or a physical Grass attack (such as Leaf     |
| Blade or Razor Leaf) is optimal.                                          |

| Lucario is weak agianst Fighting, Fire, Psychic (?), and Ground; it is    |
| immune to Poison. It can use Aura Sphere (Psychic???), Stone Edge (Rock), |
| ExtremeSpeed (Normal), and Shadow Ball (Ghost); as such, a Fire, Flying,  |
| Psychic, or Ghost type will take extra damage. I recommend a Fire-type or |
| a Pokémon with Earthquake.						    |
|                                                                           |
| Garchomp is weak against Ice (4x), Dragon, and Water moves; it is also    |
| immune to Electric. It can use Dragon Rush (Dragon), Giga Impact (Normal),|
| Earthquake (Ground), and Flamethrower (Fire); as such, Dragon, Rock, Fire,|
| Steel, Grass, Ice, and Bug types will take double damage. A Flying type   |
| with Ice Beam (ie. Gyarados) is optimal. Giratina would be my second      |
| choice, due to the Dragon Rush, although Giratina has Dragon Claw. Good   |
| luck!!!								    |

Upon winning, Cynthia takes you up to the Hall of Fame. About halfway there,
Prof. Rowan meets up with you and the two of them and you talk a bit. You are
then taken into the Hall of Fame. The party you used is then logged. You can
check the PC for the thirty most recent Hall of Fame attempts you have
completed. During the credits, you can also see the shadows of the Pokémon you
caught on the way to the Hall of Fame.

You have also unlocked the Fight Area, an area to Sinnoh's northeast. It may be
covered in a later update. Maybe.
