Victory Road

With your team ready, make sure you include Pokémon that have the HM moves Surf, Strength, Rock Smash, Waterfall, and Rock Climb, since you will need them to help with navigating through this area. Don't forget to challenge every trainer you see since only a few Pokémon cannot be spotted anywhere else such as Torterra (If Chimchar was your starter) or Empoleon (If Turtwig was your starter).


Use the first Rock Climb ledge to reach TM41 (Torment), then climb back up and travel further down to find another Rock Climb ledge. Use it and follow the path until you reach the western wall of the chamber. Use the stairs to reach 2F.


Using Strength and Rock Smash, carefully move the boulder and maneuver your bike carefully in fourth gear (faster speed) to jump over the bike ledge. Then switch to third gear (slower speed) and jump over the bike ledge to find a Max Elixir. Now travel to the southern part of the room while smashing rocks and moving boulders (make sure to move those boulders very carefully to be able to progress successfully).

Use the nearby stairs to return to 1F, then quickly head back to 2F. You can now move the nearby boulder in a new direction that will allow you to access a hidden area. By going through the smashing rocks/movable boulders/bike ledges in this area you can find some more items including TM71 (Stone Edge). Now return to those stairs you just used to get back to 1F.


Use the nearby Rock Climb ledge and carefully follow the path to reach the stairs for BF1.


Using Surf head to the nearby trainer and then from the pool on the right, follow the path in the southern area to briefly return to 1F to find a Rare Candy. Now head for the north area and use Waterfall to climb the waterfall. Then head for the next waterfall and descend down it find TM59 (Dragon Pulse) before climbing back up.

Once back up follow the path to the west to find some stairs to return to 1F.


From the stairs follow the path until you see the path leading down and head in that direction. Now head left to another Rock Climb ledge and from their you can briefly return to 2F to find TM79 (Dark Pulse). If you go up the stairs near the old man, the path leads to a blocked-off doorway that is inaccessible until after you've defeated the Elite Four.

Near the stairs to the left is a path that leads to the Razor Claw which evolves Sneasel into Weavile. The Rock Climb ledge that is on the right hand cliff near the one you used earlier will lead you out of Victory Road and into the Pokémon League.

Pokémon League

Use Surf and Waterfall to enter the building.
