Once you have captured all of these, there are some battles to be fought.

Ace Trainer Junko has a Level 68 Purugly, Level 68 Espeon, and a Level 58 Lapras.

Backpacker Vicki has a Level 65 Numel.

Black Belt Jay has a Level 64 Primeape, a Level 64 Scrafty, and a Level 64 Poliwrath.

Surf to the west off of the bridge, and then use Waterfall to climb the falls and grab the Reaper Cloth from the treasure ball, and then take advantage of the isolated area here by moving to the east and spawning Shaking Grass to get a Wigglytuff, and get the grass ones you have not caught yet as well!

Head up the next waterfall and say hello to Sage Giallo!  He gives you some advice and TM08, Bulk Up, and then Looker appears and arrests him.  Now head west for a battle...

Hiker Jebediah has a Level 63 Hippopotas, a Level 63 Piloswine, and a Level 63 Probopass.

Surf over to the next waterfall and head down, then head east to battle Ace Trainer Kipp.

Ace Trainer Kipp has a Level 68 Absol, a Level 68 Dodrio, and a Level 68 Walrein.

I don't know about you, but I found that to be a pretty challenging battle -- in fact worthy of a Gym Leader battle even if he only had the three Pokemon!  I wish that some of the Leaders or even the Elite Four had this guys heart for battle...

Instead of going over that ledge to the east, head back to the west all the way and then north to zone into the Abundant Shrine Zone.

The Rain Pokemon

This area has a lot to offer us -- so start by grabbing the items of opportunity -- head west and grab TM35, Flamethrower, then head over to the one to the northeast for another treasure ball with a Hyper Potion.  Another treasure ball is to the west with a Razor Fang.

Youngster Wes has a Level 61 Caterpie, a Level 61 Pineco, a Level 61 Scolipede, a Level 61 Spinarak, and a Level 61 Masquerain!  Man he is loaded!

Lass Lurleen has a Level 63 Horsea, Level 63 Ponyta, and a Level 63 Sunkern.

Lass Maku has a Level 63 Burmy, a Level 63 Sawsbuck, and a Level 63 Tangela.

Youngster Lester has a Level 63 Yanma, a Level 63 Ledyba, and a Level 63 Ninjask.

The Dowser will lead you to three TinyMushroom, a Big Mushroom, a BalmMushroom,

When you reach the northern section of the zone you encounter a trio of kids who argue about the origins and purpose of the shrine, which is in fact the home of the Legendary Pokemon Landorus -- but to capture him you would need Tornadus and Thunderus to summon... 

We already have Tornadus, but to obtain Thunderus we will need to trade with a mate who has Pokemon White.  Keep that in mind, and if/when you do make that trade, return here to summon him and capture him!

We are almost done with this zone for now -- we just need to Surf east and grab TM92, Trick Room, from the treasure ball in the Dark Grass, and then Fly back to the Pokemon Center in Black City to heal and save as we are done with this branch in the path, so it makes sense to do that and then follow the main path from there!

-- Back on Route 14 --

At the Pokemon Center in Black City, after you heal check your kit and replace anything that you have used in the last two sections.  If you are low on any of the drinks, there is a vending machine back by the Poke Transfer Labs, so duck over there and stock up, and then exit the north gatehouse to get back on Route 14!

Continue along the main route past the bridge where we went up the falls, pausing to Surf up the other waterfall and grab an Ultra Ball from a treasure ball up above, then heading back down and on to the Route where you will reach another bridge with a Trainer on it.

Fisherman Sid has a Level 62 Barboach, a Level 62 Whiscash, a Level 62 Corphish, and a Level 62 Carvanha. 

Surf east off of this bridge after the battle, following your Dowser to a Max Elixir, then return to the bridge and head north onto the foggy beach here -- head to the west and then north along the water and you will enter Undella Town!  Good on ya!
