Lacunosa Town

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

The entrance to Lacunosa Town is abrupt and somewhat surprising, both because it was so close to the last city and so close to the spot we had our first legendary encounter, but all things being equal that works out in our favor.

Upon arriving in town one of the first things that happens is a meeting with the Professor and Bianca – Bianca thanks you for your help in the Mountain and the Prof tells you that just past Lacunosa Town you will find Opelucid City, which is interesting news indeed.

She then has you follow her and shares a story about Lacunosa Town from an old woman who lives there... She sits down and tells you about the mighty big hole called The Giant Chasm, which is presently not accessible to you due to the road being blocked. The old woman tells you that the Chasm was created by a Meteor, and that inside the Meteor was a nasty Pokemon. It is a spooky tale, and how much of it is actually true, well, who can say?

When you get back outside the Prof asks if you remember the story of Zekrom?

If you do, fine, but if you want to hear it again, say no. After filling you in the discussion continue and the Prof makes a connection between the Meteorite and the Dark Stone from which the Legendary Pokemon were found... The Prof asks you to bring the matter to Drayden's attention, and then they both go their separate ways.

Right, so, first thing first, head to the Pokemon Center to heal, re-supply, and then save the game.

With that managed, if you like you can chat with the girl in the Center who will ask to see your badges and then tell you what your team was when you won them.

Exploring the Town

Talking to the people outside is an idea, and hey! One of them is your Rival Hugh! And guess what? When you talk to him it advances the main plot, with Team Plasma showing up in the form of Zinzolin and a Grunt!

You join Hugh in battling them, and the pair brings out their Level 39 Golbat and Level 42 Cryogonal, followed by their Level 44 Sneasel and Level 39 Garbodor, and they pay you $9480 for the lesson you give them.

After you defeat them they run off, and Hugh gives chase, but we have fulfilled our obligations, at least for the present time.

As you explore you can chat with trainers and, at the end of the upper section you will find a Treasure Ball with a Full Heal in it. Inside the house on the upper right area is a Treasure Ball with a Metronome in it, so be sure to grab that – and the Old Woman is outside with her grandson and will tell you the folk tail again if you ask her to...

That wraps up everything that we need to do here, so it is time to head out through the west exit to town and onto Route 12!

Route 12

This is a rustic and wooded route that has quite a bit to offer you, from Pokemon XP to trainer battles as well as loot! You will want to fully explore this area rather than take the quick route through it...

You have already captured and collected all of the Wild Pokemon that are available here, but on the off chance you are missing one or two - check the Habitat Listing - you can always try to grab them here.

Using your Dowser you will find a Rare Candy, Ultra Ball, and a Max Repel.

In Treasure Balls you will find a Timer Ball, PP Up, Yellow Shard, and a Max Potion.

The trainers you can battle begin with Battle Girl Azra, who has a Level 41 Gurdurr and a Level 41 Mienfoo, and pays $1312.

Black Belt Jeriel has a Level 42 Heracross and pays $1344.

Backers Cleo and Rio who have Level 40 Roselias and pay $1920.

With all that managed it is time to head through the gate to the west!

A village on a bridge is really something historic
A village on a bridge is really something historic

The Village Bridge

When you exit the gate into the Village Bridge area your Habitat List is automatically updated and, if you check it, thanks to all the trainer battles as well as your collecting activities you will note that you have actually seen all of the regular Pokemon that are found here - and thus receive the unshaded Pokeball Stamp that indicates that - which means all you need to do is capture the ones you do not actually have yet.

That should be just one Pokemon, Golduck. On the Surf List you will not have found all of the ones for this area, but you will have three of them, Basculin, Marill, and Azumarill.

First thing to do though is head south and then west into the ball court, where you will find some battles waiting for you:

Smasher Lizzy has a Level 44 Whimsicott and pays $4400.

The nearby Treasure Ball has a Carbos in it.

Smasher Amy has a Level 44 Lilligant and pays $4400.

Head west and under the bridge to battle Artist Gough, who has a Level 42 Sunflora, and pays $2016.

Use your Dowser after this battle to locate a Big Mushroom in the dark grass on the side of the bridge, and then grab the Rare Candy from the nearby Treasure Ball.

Now it is time to check out (and grab) that missing Wild Pokemon – as you will find Level 36 to 41 Golduck here.

The missing Pokemon for the Water Holes is Lapras, so one you have your Golduck you will want to run beside the water to spawn Water Holes until you capture that Lapras as well!

The Bridge

With that mischief managed it is time to head up onto the Bridge – which if you have not noticed is actually a town... You know, with houses? Built on the bridge?

You think that is odd? What would you say if I told you that back in the day (which is a way to say a looonngg time ago) that was the case with the bridge in London? Seriously, it had structures on it like this, so this is like totally historical tourism and stuff. Really!

The first house to the north is the Rest House, where a Pokemon Nurse lives and who will heal your team any time you ask. Cool that.

In the second house you can chat up the trainers to hear complaints about the local rock band, while the third house is empty - but it has a great TV so hey, settle in, watch a few programs, hit the fridge, they won't mind!

When you reach the center of the bridge you run into a trainer who claims you are his 1000th opponent! Whoa! Epic Number! He has had 999 wins in a row and he plans to wipe the bridge up with you! Umm, sorry mate, but we don't do “lose” when it comes to Pokemon Battles, because we are the Man (or Woman if you are female)!

Gentleman Stonewall has a Level 43 Durant, and a Level 43 Lucario, and pays you $8600 for breaking his winning streak!

In the fourth house is a family of trainers and it looks like mom is not happy about the way things are going, and in the fifth house you have another battle.

Baker Chris who has a Level 42 Heatmor and pays $1680.

In the last house you meet one of the men who helped build the bridge and that pretty much wraps up the bridge!

As you step off of the bridge head south and your Dowser will ding, leading you to a Max Ether.

In the grass here you meet Youngster Karl, who has a Level 42 Sandslash and pays you $672.

Deeper in the patch is a Treasure Ball with an Ultra Ball in it, and by the water is a trainer who will sing to you.

Head all the way to the north and grab the Blue Shard form the Treasure Ball, then Surf out to the island and grab the Big Pearl from the Treasure Ball there.

Backtrack to just before the bloke that sang to you and there is an entrance into the bridge base – go in and you will spot a girl trainer practicing her singing, but when she sees you she throws you out.

Head back to the bridge and north to grab the PP Up from the trash can next to the vending machine, then chat up the trainer here just for kicks, before you head out onto the court for a battle.

Hoopster Derrick has a Level 42 Electrabuzz and a pair of Level 42 Elekids who he brings out in a Triple Battle, and pays you $4200 for the lesson.

Hoopster Nicolas has a Level 42 Magmar and a pair of Level 42 Magby that he brings out in a Triple Battle, and pays you $4200.

Route 11

Now that you have finished the Bridge, it is time to head through the gate house and on to Route 11, where you will find that once again there is a lot to do and a few new Pokemon to add to your collection because hey, you gotta catch 'em all mates!

Pokemon Breeder Magnolia greets you with her Level 41 Emolga and Level 41 Altaria, and pays you $1312.

Note that Pokemon Breeder Magnolia is one of the trainers who you can re-battle if you zone out or have another encounter first, so if you are looking for some extra XP that is an option...

Inside the RV ahead is a trainer who will gift you with a Favored Mail.

Pokemon Ranger Crofton has a Level 42 Tympole and a Level 42 Palpitoad, and pays you $2520. After the battle they gift you with an Aspear Berry.

With that battle managed you have reached the first Tall Grass patch that also has access to the water, so it is a good time to look at your Pokemon and the list below to learn which (if any) you still need to collect.

Dex No. Name Type Location
162 Amoongus Grass/Poison Tall/Dark Grass
36 Audino Normal Shaking Grass
32 Azumarill Water Shaking Grass
104 Basculin Water Surfing / Water Holes
149 Buizel Water Surfing / Water Holes
144 Emolga Electric/Flying Shaking Grass
150 Floatzel Water Water Holes
221 Gligar Ground/Flying Tall/Dark Grass
222 Gliscor Ground/Flying Shaking Grass
29 Golduck Water Tall/Dark Grass
155 Karrablast Bug Tall/Dark Grass
31 Marill Water Tall/Dark Grass
187 Seviper Poison Tall/Dark Grass
157 Shelmet Bug Tall/Dark Grass
186 Zangoose Normal Dark Grass

Eliminating the Pokemon that you should already have, that leaves the following list of targets for your collecting, starting with the Grass-based Pokemon, which are Amoongus, and Gligar, with Gliscor in the Shaking Grass. In the Water you will be wanting to collect a Buizel and a Floatzel. So really that is not a bad or hard list!

Once you have captured all of the outstanding Pokemon you will have completed the Surf Habitat List for Route 11 and for Lostlorn Forest, and the standard Habitat List for Route 11.

With that significant accomplishment now to your credit, you may need to heal up and resupply your Poke Balls so take a moment to do that, and then make your way back here and cross the bridge for your second legendary encounter - you did get lots of Ultra Balls, right?

Capturing your second legendary Pokemon, Virizion
Capturing your second legendary Pokemon, Virizion

Capturing Virizion

When you reach the other side of the bridge here you will encounter the Legendary Pokemon Virizion, who jumps down from the cliff above and confronts you. This is it mates – a chance to capture another epic and Legendary Pokemon! Sweet!

Virizion is Level 45, and like the previous member of the trio Cobalion is a bit on the difficult side to capture... As with Cobalion we will need to weaken him to capture, so try to do that without actually killing it, right?

With a second Legendary captured, you may need to head back to the Pokemon Center and heal up your crew, as well as re-supplying your Poke Balls.

Assuming that you have collected all of the Pokemon here that you need to collect, it is now time to head for Opelucid City!
