Striaton City - Cleanup

Striaton City Cleanup

As you leave the gym Fennel will stop you and give you HM01 - Cut. You have to have this on a Pokemon with you at all times. There are a LOT of trees that you need to cut down just to get to the next areas. Follow Fennel to her lab at the second floor of the building that is just south of the gym. She request that you go back to the Dreamyard and get her some Dream Mist.

Before we head over there let's get some items from town. Down the far left is a man who will give you a Dusk Ball. There is a X Speed in a ball in the bottom left of the town. There is also a Great Ball in the lower left of the garden.

Then head back to The Dreamyard.

Tall Grass - Lillipup / Patrat / Munna
Tall Grass (Rustling) - Audino / Musharna

Use Cut on the tree to get into the area and Bianca will come out to help. Head inside to see Munna and a couple of Team Plasmid Grunts will show up. Take them out one at a time in two minor Trainer battles and then Ghetsis will show up and reprimand them. Fennel will come over and get the Dream Mist and then take off.

Grab the items in the area before leaving. There is a Potion, Repel, Parlyz Heal and a Poke Ball. One to the left in the grass, one on the left of the top area, one on the top of the right area, and then one in front of broken wall.

Then go back to Striaton City and up to the top floor of Fennel's place again to get your C-Gear and then top floor of Pokemon Centers is open. Now it's time to move on. Head north to Route 3.

Straight ahead of you as you start the route is the Pokemon Daycare. At this stage you can drop off 1 pokemon to level up as you wonder the world. The next building over is a Preschool. This is your local healing area. Just talk to the girl straight ahead in the front door. There are 4 basic trainers in the playground to the left.

As you leave the preschool area you'll have your first 2 on 2 battle against 2 lvl 10 Purrloins. Then Cheren will come up and have a battle with you also.

SNIVY - lvl 14 Tepig & lvl 12 Purrloin
TEPIG - lvl 14 Oshawatt & Lvl 12 Purrloin
OSHAWATT - lvl 14 Snivy & lvl 12 Purrloin

After that Team Plasma Grunts will run past you to the west. It seems they have stolen a young girls pokemon. Grab the Super Potion above you in the grass picking up the two new pokemon. Head to the left, but before enter Wellspring Cave go to the top right and fight Pokemon Breeder Adelaide to get a Oran Berry. 
Then grab the Repel as you make your way out of the grass and into the Wellspring Cave.

Not a whole lot to do here until you get Surf. Fight the Grunt and then the 2 on 2 battle. After that you can get the new pokemon in the cave and make your way around to TM46 - Thief.

Route 3 - Part 2

Route 3 - Part 2

Back outside you'll have a scene with your friends where you fought Cheren before and you'll get 10 Heal Balls for helping out. These heal the Pokemon after capture. Head south to a Trainer battle and then grab the Antidote in the grass. A little farther south your friend Cheren will let you know that darker grass may contain dual battles but there is nothing special in there at this time.

Another trainer battle and then grab the Great Ball in the grass right before you go on the bridge. A battle on the bridge, then a Awakening after the bridge to the South and finally one more Trainer battle and you'll get yourself to Nacrene City.

Cheren will give you a VERY brief look at the city and then hand over some Chesto Berries.

The building two to the right of the Center has a woman on the first floor that will tell you how happy your Pokemon are. On the second floor is a person who will trade you a Cottonee for your Petilil. (There will be one in the next area.) It's the opposite in Black.

Speak to the woman on the left in the far left house to get a free item. Tepig = Charcoal, Snivy = Miracle Seed & Oshawott = Mystic Water.

If it happens to be Wednesday in the game you can get a free Soda Pop in the cafe. It is a healing item that gives back 60 HP. Then talk to the man just outside the cafe on the deck to get the accordion added to the soundtrack.

Finally as you try to enter the gym you'll be attacked by N again. His line up this time is a lvl 13 Pidove, lvl 13 Tympole & a lvl 13 Timburr. This battle should be no problem if you've been leveling up.

Nacrene City - Basic Badge Gym Battle

Basic Badge

As you walk into the gym the front part is actually a museum and you'll be given a short tour before getting to the gym part.

Inside the gym you'll get a welcome gift of Fresh Water. This puzzle has you reading books and battling trainers. Right away School Kid Carter and his lvl 17 Patrat. Then go up the front left ladder and read the book. Then read the middle left book. Then fight the far back left Scientist Satomi and her lvl 17 Herdier. Read the book afterwards. Now read the front right book and then battle the girl right in front of that. School Kid Lidia has 3 pokemon. All lvl 15 Lillipups, After that read the book and the enterance to the gym leader will be revealed.


Lenora - Lvl 18 Herdier & lvl 20 Watchdog

Recommended level: 23

Both of these are normal type Pokemon so Fighting type moves will do major damage. My Tepig leveled up with a Fighting move so it was no trouble. If you are not so lucky you might want to head to Pinwheel Forest and get the TM94 Rock Smash first.

Once done you get the Basic Badge and TM67 Retaliate. Right after the battle you'll get into a scene where Team Plasma is stealing the Dragon Skull from the museum. Head back up there and watch it all play out. Before you leave Biance will give you the Dowsing MCHN to help you find hidden items. Then head outside where everyone will meet up and you'll be told to here to Pinwheel Forest to find the Dragon Skull.

You put "Watchdog" instead of "Watchog".
