Chargestone Cave

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

As we have previously worked our way through Route 6 you should have all of the captures from there, and have collected all if the items as well, so we are just passing through on our way to the caves, which we have not explored or entered yet.

When we reach the Lab on Route 6 the way is blocked by Leader Cheren, who it seems was waiting for us! Cheren asks us to come with him and takes us inside the Lab where he tells us about the drop in temperature near Lacunosa Town...

There were other incidents and he feels that they may be connected to Team Plasma – he wants us to investigate, and to help us out he gifts us with the HM03 Surf! Excellent! This will really come in handy!

Later you can use Surf to explore the previous areas we have already passed through both to grab the items that are on them that were previously beyond reach, and to obtain the Pokemon that can only be had that way, but until we get a Fishing Rod there is no point in being too serious about retracing to those areas anyway.

You should go ahead and teach that HM to one of your team now so you have it. In fact a great way to try it out would be to Surf in the river outside, as you can Surf across to an area that was out of reach to grab a PP Up from a Treasure Ball there!

Continue along Route 6 and when you cross the bridge above the pool you will have a brief encounter with a special Pokemon! Rood will appear and explain that you just encountered the Legendary Pokemon Cobalion! The elderly man tells you about Cobalion, Virizion, and Terrakion. Rood suggests that you try to befriend Cobalion – sounds like a great idea to me!

Cross the bridge and go immediately to the right instead of heading for the cave just now, and instead hit the rest house if you need to and then head behind it and along that path that you battled the trainer at and Surf into the water there, go across to the fenced off area behind the Lab and grab TM56 Fling from the Treasure Ball there. Now go back in the water and continue east to the other side and you will find the entrance to a cave – Mistralton Cave to be precise.

Your first cave and new Pokemon to collect

Mistralton Cave

It is a bit dark in here but if you have a Pokemon that knows the move Flash you can light things up! This massively expands the areas you can see, so with that new revelation make your way through the cave and you will see that you need to move boulders into pits using Strength.

Dex No. Name Type Location
166 Aron Steel/Rock Just Walk
183 Axew Dragon Just Walk
69 Boldore Rock Just Walk
76 Drillbur Ground Just Walk
66 Woobat Psychic/Flying Just Walk

The Wild Pokemon you can encounter here include Level 27 to 30 Aron, Axew, Boldore, Drilbur, and Woobat. You should already have collected Boldore, Drillbur, and Woobat, so you are looking to collect an Aron and an Axew as you flit about in the cave.

In the dust you can find Bug Gems, Ice Gems, and Water Gems.

You will find a Treasure Ball with a Blue Shard, Yellow Shard, Dusk Ball, Hyper Potion, Escape Rope, and TM80 Rock Slide.

Using the Dowser you can find a Super Repel, Ultra Ball, Green Shard, Dragon Gem, and Full Heal.

You will encounter trainers here as well, starting with Hiker Shelby who has a Level 32 Boldore and pays $1024.

Hiker Jebediah has a Level 32 Onix and pays $1024.

On the second level you will find Ace Trainer Geoff who has a Level 33 Tirtouga and a Level 33 Axew, and pays $1980.

Ace Trainer Belle has a Level 33 Archen and a Level 33 Axew and pays $1980.

At this point you have done all that you can do in this cave – note that if you were expecting the Legendary to be found here, well, no, it is out and about as you saw when we were on the bridge and unlike in the last game where it WAS found in the cave that is not the case in this game. But do not worry, you will get it eventually.

You should have captured all of the outstanding Pokemon if you are following this guide for the cave, so for now head back to the rest house and heal your team, as we have a bit of a side-mission to manage before we head for Chargestone Cave...

Collecting What Was Missing Before

Now that we have Surf there are a Number of minor tasks that we can quickly complete that will add to the strength of your position in the game as well as prevent you from overlooking them. Without too much fuss then, follow these numbered tasks:

(1) Surf in the water between Mistralton Cave and the Rest House until you encounter and capture a Basculin, adding that to your collection, which also completes the Water Habitat Pages for Route 6, Route 19, Route 20, Aspertia City, Floccesy Ranch, and The Relic Passage.

(2) Head back to the Rest Hut and heal your team if needed then backtrack all the way to the Research Center and Surf east from it to the opposite shore and grab the PP Up from the Treasure Ball there. Surf back then backtrack to bridge below towards town then Surf off and west to the shore to grab a Heart Scale from the Treasure Ball there.

(3) Fly to Virbank City and head down into the canals, Surf north and east towards the opposite side, and you should encounter and capture a Frillish, then head up the stairs and grab the Rare Candy from the Treasure Ball there.

Back in the canal Surf down and west to the dock beside the boat, run west, south, and then east to grab the Silk Scarf from the Treasure Ball concealed between the walls. After you grab this run back to where the boat is then run back and forth until you generate a Water Hole, and capture the Alomomola from within. That takes care of the ones you can get without a fishing pole here and in several other places.

While these were small matters they were small matters that were left hanging - and it is nice that we have therefore sorted them. But now that we have done so, we should make our way back to Route 6 and to the entrance of Chargestone Cave!

Your second cave and new Pokemon to collect

Chargestone Cave

Inside you find Bianca standing by one of the charged stones, and she tells you that the stones float and will move if you push them, then she heads off to do some research of her own. We are here to both explore, grab some Pokemon if we need them, and otherwise have a Poke-good time! So let us get at that, shall we?

Dex No. Name Type Location
69 Boldore Rock Just Walk
76 Drillbur Ground Dust Clouds
175 Ferroseed Grass/Steel Just Walk
173 Joltik Bug/Electric Just Walk
130 Klink Steel Just Walk
164 Nosepass Rock Just Walk
177 Tynamo Electric Just Walk

You will find Level 25 to 28 Boldore, Drilbur, Ferroseed, Joltik, Klink, Nosepass, and Tynamo - of which you should already have a Boldore and Drillbur for certain. That means you will be looking to capture a Ferroseed, Joltik, Klink, Nosepass, and Tynamo!

In Dust Clouds you can find Dark Gems.

Using the Dowser you can find a Yellow Shard, Hyper Potion, and an Ultra Ball.

In Treasure Balls you will find a Full Heal, Hyper Potion, Max Repel, an Iron, Escape Rope, Thunderstone, and Carbos.

Among the trainers you will battle here are Guitarist Anna who has a Level 30 Emolga and pays $960.

Scientist Ronald has a Level 30 Magneton and pays $1440.

Ace Trainer Corky has a Level 33 Sandslash, Unfezant, and Klink that are all brought out at the same time for a Triples Battle. After you beat him he pays you $1980.

When you reach the next level down you meet the Nugget Man and Nugget Boy, and they gift you with a Nugget, and a Big Nugget.

Continue west and then north from here along the narrow passage, then up the stairs at the end and you will encounter a little girl who gives you the Funfest Mission “Find Shining Ores” when you chat her up.

Nearby is Pokemon Ranger Louis who has a Level 34 Ampharos and pays you $2040. As is the custom, the Ranger also gifts you with a berry - in this case a Chesto Berry.

Backtrack to the Nugget blokes and head up the stairs, then east and north to find a trainer waiting for you!

Pokemon Ranger Brianna has a Level 33 Minccino and a Level 33 Excadrill and pays $1980. After the battle she gifts you some Chesto Berries.

In a Treasure Ball nearby you will find an Iron you should be sure to grab.

Doctor Kit has a Level 32 Solosis and a Level 32 Gothita and pays $1920. He heals your team after the battle.

Scientist Lumi has a Level 32 Joltik and a Level 32 Golbat and pays $1536.

You run into Bianca again and she explains that she is researching a Pokemon named Tynamo at the request of the Professor, but it seems she is having trouble finding some.

Head down the stairs here and battle Guitarist Beverly who has a Level 33 Zebstrika and pays $1056.

There is an Escape Rope in a Treasure Ball ahead, and then you do battle with Hiker Jeremy has a Level 32 Onix and a Level 32 Boldore and pays $1024.

Head along the lower path south to the Treasure Ball with a Metal Coat in it, then continue along the path north and grab the Electric Gem using the Dowsing Machine to find it at the end of the path. Double all the way back and up the stairs, then cut south for another trainer battle.

Ace Trainer Vicki who has a Level 33 Krokorok, Stoutland, and Ferroseed which all come out in a Rotation Battle. She pays you $1980.

Ace Trainer Shaye has a Level 34 Archen and a Level 34 Electrabuzz and pays $2040.

At the end of the path is a Treasure Ball with a Thunderstone, and once you have that, you have pretty much cleared this area, so backtrack and head up the stairs to where Bianca is and up to the next level.

Ace Trainer Mary, who has a Level 34 Tirtouga and a Level 34 Magmar and pays $2040.

If you head west from her that will take you back to the part of the cave you already explored, while south takes you down to a battle with Hiker Otto, who has a Level 32 Aron and Level 32 Nosepass and pays $1024. Behind him is a Treasure Ball with a Carbos.

Heading east leads to the exit and Mistralton City!
