Route 13

Route 13

The water and plant life of Route 13 give the area a lot of natural beauty. The mysterious Giant Chasm lies to the north, and Lacunosa Town lies off to the northwest.


The Treasure Hunter

When you reach the sandbar near Parasol Lady Laura, take the western path first. The man further down the beach is a treasure hunter, and will give you some of his extra items. Speak to him every day to get one of the five kinds of Flute, which can be sold to the billionaire in Undella Town for a high price.

Cobalion is waiting

Farther north, the beach gives way to the forested high ground. Climb the stairway and approach the cuttable trees to find Cobalion standing in the clearing beyond. Now's your chance to catch it! Start off with Fire-, Fighting-, or Ground-type attacks to wear it down fast, then follow up with Normal, Grass, Ice, or Steel moves to weaken it further. Avoid using Dark-type attacks, as its Justified Ability raises its Attack when it is damaged by those moves. If you happen to defeat it, Cobalion will reappear after entering the Hall of Fame at level 65. So you may want to consider capturing Cobalion at a later time if you don't plan on adding it to your team right away.

Go north from the clearing to reach Lacunosa Town.

Lacunosa Town

Lacunosa Town

The people of Lacunosa Town believe in an old legend that tells of a monster that attacks at night. Even now, they never leave their homes after dark.


The Old Legend

Enter the town and head south, and Professor Juniper and Bianca will call out to you. The professor leads you both to a house on the north side of town. She asks the old woman here to tell the legend of the Giant Chasm. The old woman claims that the area was formed when a meteorite that contained a Pokémon crashed into the planet. At night, that Pokémon would attack humans and Pokémon alike, and always appeared with a frigid wind that could freeze someone to the bone. Juniper believes that the walls built around the town may have earned it the name Lacunosa, as lacunosus clouds resemble a fence.

After listening to the old woman's tale, Professor Juniper tells you about the legendary dragon, ZekromB2 / ReshiramW2. She thinks there is a link between it and the monster in the legend, as minerals found in Dragonspiral Tower were also found in the Giant Chasm.

The Businessman

Visit the northeast house at night or late night. Talk to the businessman inside to get a Pecha Berry, Bluk Berry, Lum Berry, or Leppa Berry once per day.

Zinzolin

Head west from the Pokémon Center to meet up with Hugh again. He's here because he heard rumors of Team Plasma in the city. Suddenly, Zinzolin and a Grunt appear, After hearing Team Plasma's plans, your rival snaps and asks for your help in battle. Combine your strength to take out the two criminals.




Defeated, Zinzolin and the Grunt flee the town. Hugh takes off after them. Head west to Route 12.

Route 12

Route 12

Route 12 is a short route made of grassy fields and rolling hills. The area connects Lacunosa Town in the east to Village Bridge in the west.


Hunt for Bug Pokémon

The Bug-type Pokémon Pinsir, Heracross, Combee, and Vespiquen are seldom seen, and can only be found here and in Lostlorn Forest. Don't pass up the chance to add to your Pokédex.


Village Bridge

Village BridgeBW

Village Bridge spans a wide river, and is lined with homes on either side. Like its name implies, it is indeed a village built on a bridge. It connects Route 12 with Route 11 to the west.


Rest Stop

Visit the easternmost house, and talk to the woman inside. She heals your Pokémon back to full health. There is no Pokémon Center nearby, so visit her when your Pokémon need a break.

Stonewall's Winning Streak

Head up over the bridge, and a Gentleman suddenly stops you. He is trying to set a record for most consecutive wins, and only needs one more to reach 1,000. Even though you defeat him, he can't wait to begin again.

The Voice

Enter the room under the west side of the bridge to find a woman practicing her singing. She chases you out, and when that happens, talk to the girl directly above on the bridge. For clearing up the mystery of the voice she heard, she gives you five Sitrus Berries as thanks.

Route 11

Route 11

Route 11 is a short, paved road that passes over a river flowing out from a waterfall. The gate on the west side leads to Opelucid City, home of the next Gym.


Virizion is waiting

When you reach the west side of Route 11, the legendary Virizion suddenly leaps down from the cliff. It seems that it, like Cobalion, was also waiting for you. Start off with Fire-, Ice-, or Flying-type attacks to wear it down fast, then follow up with Water-, Rock-, or Ground-type moves to weaken it further. Avoid using Dark-type attacks, as its Justified Ability raises its Attack when it is damaged by those moves. If you happen to defeat it, Virizion will reappear after entering the Hall of Fame at level 65. So you may want to consider capturing Virizion at a later time if you don't plan on adding it to your team right away.
