Catching Cobalion


Moves Required: Surf, Strength, Flash
Story Progress Required: Only that you have the required moves
PokeDex #144
LVL 42 [Steel / Fighting]

You get Surf from Adler as you enter Twist Mountain after winning the Jet Badge from Skyla. Head west out of Driftveil City to Route 6. If this is your first time on Route 6 with Surf be sure to grab the Silk Scarf and TM84 Poison Jab along the river. Then Surf your way into Mistralton Cave in the NorthEast from the top right of the area in the Tall Grass just past the Heal House.

Use Flash on entering the cave so you can see where you are going. Head straight down and use Strength to push the rock into the hole so that you can move on. You'll be doing this A LOT in this cave. There is one of the few Trainers in this cave as you move along the bottom of this level. There is a Max Repel in the upper right near a Trainer and then a Hyper Potion in the upper left. Then head down to the next floor.

On the next floor head down the far right side and then along the bottom to get a Hard Stone. Then up the far right to the top and follow it to the left for TM80 Rock Slide. Finally there is a Iron on the left of the middle rock formation. Then head down again to continue.

Talk to the man and you have to say Yes and listen to his story for Cobalion to appear. Then up the right side for a Dusk Stone. Then left for a Rare Candy and then push the two boulder and go to the bottom for a Revive. Finally up the left side to fight Cobalion.

Hopefully you brought 30 Ultra Balls because Cobalion does NOT want to be caught. This can be a long boring battle as you work him down in HP. If you have Pokemon with False Swipe that auto leaves 1 HP, also anyone who can cause Paralyse or Sleep is a big help. After you beat Cobalion he became my False Swipe / Thunder Wave attacker. Thunder Wave auto causes Paralyse if it hits.

The old man will then come up to you and tell you that Virizion is now out in Pinwheel Forest and Terrakion is now out at Victory Road. You can go and get Virizion right now!

To beat ghetsis you need really high level pokemon. But I don't know what number so I think around 64.
