Route 229

Route 229

This should be a straightforward route. In the patch of long grass, there is a man hiding in the trees who will give you two Nuggets if you talk with him twice. Also, one of the Trainers is also hidden. You will need Cut for finding two of the items. In the southernmost area where two of the Trainers are, there are two paths. Going west will take you to Route 230, while going east takes you to the Resort Area. Let's go to the Resort Area first.

Resort Area

Resort Area

There isn't much to do here. This is the only place in the game besides Twinleaf Town not to have a Poké Mart or other store.

Ribbon Syndicate

The Ribbon Syndicate is the large building in the northeastern part of town. This is a very hard building to get into as you must have 10 different kinds of Ribbon on your current party just to be permitted entry. You'll need to participate in a lot of different Super Contests to achieve this.

Like with the massage therapist in Veilstone City, there is a spa treatment, receivable once per day, that will increase a Pokémon's happiness factor. One difference is that it can also be used on Pokémon Eggs, enabling the Pokémon that hatches from that Egg to already possess that increased happiness factor. Also, you can purchase rare, highly expensive Ribbons not found elsewhere.

Villa

Located in the southeastern area of town. Once you arrive, the previous owner will turn over the Villa to you and help you get a table. You can purchase other furniture with the booklet found on the table, allowing you to decorate in a similar way to the Underground Secret Base. The Sinnoh Gym Leaders, Professor Rowan, Lucas/Dawn, Barry, and your character's mother may come and visit.

Route 230

Route 230DP

For the last numbered route in the game, this is pretty easy to navigate. Surf west to reach the Fight Area. If you have a Grass- and an Electric-type with you, you should have no problems. You will need Rock Smash for the small island found on this route to reach all the items (two of which are hidden).

Now, let's go after the remaining legendary Pokémon! Return to Snowpoint City and go all the way north to the Snowpoint Temple.

Snowpoint Temple

Outside the Snowpoint Temple

You will need Regirock, Regice, and Registeel in your party for this mission if you want to battle and catch Regigigas. Your only option is to migrate them from Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald through Pal Park or, with the aid of a Regigigas received from a special event, catch them before returning here. If you're planning to catch Regigigas, you will want a Pokémon with False Swipe and plenty of Dusk Balls.

When you approach the temple, the guard states that you are not qualified to enter, but Candice appears and says that you are.

1F

Snowpoint Temple 1F

Travel down the stairs to B1F.

B1F

Snowpoint Temple B1F

Carefully slide down the ice and reach the stairs to B2F.

B2F

Snowpoint Temple B2F

Rock Smash can help here, although you do not actually need it to get through. After following the path, take the stairs to B3F.

B3F

Snowpoint Temple B3F

Sliding on the ice is a bit tricky. First, slide until you got to the part where there is no ice. Next slide ←, ↑, →, then ↑ to reach the stairs. You can now go to B4F.

B4F

Snowpoint Temple B4F

While there is nothing to worry about you can use Strength and move the boulder ↑, →, → to be able to reach the item. When ready use the stairs to descend to BF5, the final floor.

BF5

Snowpoint Temple B5F

While this new sliding puzzle looks difficult, it can be easy with the right steps. From the tile next to the first rock nearest your entry point travel ↓ to reach the unfrozen tile southwest of Regigigas. Now very carefully slide in this order: ↓, →, ↑, ←, ↓, →, ↑ to reach Regigigas. If you have the three Regis in your party, Regigigas will awaken and face you when you interact with it. Save the game before interacting with it.

It may come as a bit of a shock that Regigigas is only Level 1! Use False Swipe to reduce its HP bar to the red zone and then throw Dusk Balls or Nest Balls until you catch it. Hopefully, it won't be too much trouble.

Once it's captured, exit the temple and Fly to Celestic Town.

Celestic Town

In order to battle Dialga and Palkia, you must first talk to Cynthia's grandmother. If you got the Adamant Orb and Lustrous Orb at Mt. Coronet earlier after beating the Sunyshore Gym, Cynthia's grandmother will explain their connection to Dialga and Palkia. Now, they will appear when you return to Spear Pillar.

Fly to Oreburgh City and go north from there to Mt. Coronet's entrance. You'll need the HMs Surf, Strength, Rock Smash, and Rock Climb, as well as about 40 each of Ultra Balls and Net Balls. It's time to head back to Spear Pillar! (See this section if you need a refresher on how to get there.)

Spear Pillar (second visit)

Here, you'll see a blue jewel which is another dimension where Dialga is. Save your game, then interact with it to challenge Dialga. After that, step back inside Mt. Coronet and quickly return. This time, a purple-colored jewel will appear: Palkia.

When you face them, be careful as they are at Lv. 70. Make sure your team is at least Lv. 65 or higher. Quickly paralyze them and then weaken them with normally-effective moves. They have Earth Power to counter Steel-types that could withstand their other moves, but certain Steel-types like Forretress, Scizor, and Skarmory still work for the resistance tactic as their additional types prevent supereffective damage.

Net Balls will make it easier to catch Palkia, as it is part Water-type. When playing at night, Dusk Balls will work great on both Legendaries.


After catching the deities of space and time, your mission in this game is mostly complete! All that's left is to work on completing the National Pokédex, which will require trading with other players. Obtaining all 481 non-event Pokémon is a big task, but it is possible! If you complete the National Pokédex, go to the Hotel Grand Lake on Valor Lakefront and talk with the Game Freak director to get your Diploma for completing your Pokédex.

Additionally, you can always challenge the Elite Four, Battleground, and Battle Frontier.
