Back on the Adventure Trail

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Pokemon White 2
Last Updated:

When we exit our home the first thing we do as we round the corner is run into our best mate Hugh and his little sister, who it appears have been waiting patiently for us outside in the street.

Hugh's little sister thanks you for finding her Pokemon, then she shares a dream that she had about a Pokemon called Zoroark...

She tells you that it is calling your name... And that it is now on Victory Road... Interesting!

With that noted, it is time to hit the local Pokemon Center, both to re-supply and make sure we have an adequate supply of Poke Balls, and to speak to the Medal Man so that we receive any medals that we have earned that are outstanding, as well as the remaining Hint Medals.

If you have received any Wonder Cards for Event Pokemon and you notice that the delivery guy is present in the Pokemon Center, clearing a spot in your team to collect them and store them is a good idea. Now would also be a good time to sort the captured Pokemon from your Incoming Box if you have not already done so, and of course, once you do that, you should also save your game, right?

When you access the PC to sort your Pokemon out you will get a notice that new Wallpaper has been awarded to honor your victory. Sweet!

A Number of Minor Tasks

It is now time to get some minor but very important side-stuff done, and so we shall address it now with our first task, setting out on the journey to obtain the Fishing Rod we desperately need in order to continue working on the Dex.

So Fly or make your way to Castelia City, and then head along the water street east like we were going to the sewers but instead enter the east gate and you will find that the route and Skyarrow Bridge that were previously closed are now open!

Pinwheel Forest

After you cross the Skyarrow Bridge and exit you will find yourself in Pinwheel Forest. That is good for several reasons, as first there are trainers here to battle and second some Pokemon you really want to capture, so battle the trainers to see the following Pokemon.

Remember that any Pokemon you encounter in battles that you have not seen previously will add a partial entry into the appropriate Pokedex, so for example those that are in the Unova Dex will add an entry into that Dex as well as the National Dex, while those that are only in the National Dex will not effect the Unova Dex. At the present time your focus is the Unova Dex completion project but you should be trying to see/capture the National Dex Pokemon as well, as you need them too.

In the First Area you will find the following Pokemon via their listed Trainers:

Dex No. Name Trainer
019 / N542 Leavanny Nursery Aide Rosalyn
045 / N545 Scolipede Youngster Henley

In addition to adding a partial record for any Pokemon you have yet to see that you battle each of the trainers above, you also gain the XP and prize money for the battles, so hey, win-win!

Encountering Cheren

As you reach the entrance to the Pinwheel Forest Grass Areas on the left mid-way down, you will encounter Cheren who asks your help in dealing with remnants of Team Plasma. If you say yes he will join you, becoming your partner for dual battles.

Bear in mind that if you have any Wild Pokemon encounters, they will be doubles, and you can NOT throw a Pokeball until one of the pair is KO'd... In addition to the encounters that you are supposed to have in helping Cheren you will also have regular trainer encounters.

As you work your way into the inner areas of the Forest you encounter Gorm, who tells you that he was previously one of Team Plasma's Seven Sages. He sets you straight on his position on the matter of Team Plasma, then Cheren thanks you and gives you an Up-Grade as your reward for helping him.

First Pinwheel Area Wild Pokemon

Then step into the grass to grab the following Pokemon - note that numbers beginning with “N” are National Pokedex not Unova... Note that the area that they are to be found in is included in the table list, and the First Area is the first area you encounter, while the Second Area is the one that is on the other side of the route you zone to when heading to Nacrene City.

N's Pokemon

Special Note: In addition to the Wild Pokemon above there is also a chance (assuming you have viewed the Memory Links) for you to encounter the following PokemoN that previously belonged to N, and are thus Special Pokemon with a Rare Classification:

014 Pidove

073 Timburr

228 Tympole

Each of these Pokemon wheN captured will have N as their OT, and when encountered will make the special sound and graphical splash that is associated with encountering N's former Pokemon.
