Desert Resort

Relic Castle

When you visit the Relic Castle this time, the Worker on the first floor has cleared out the sand that blocked the way, so you can reach the lower floors by taking the stairs in the southwest.


Ryoku of the Seven Sages tells you that Ghetsis is testing you. Fight the grunt waiting for you, then drop through to the next floor.


Pick up the Max Potion, fight the two grunts, grab the TM30 (Shadow Ball), and drop through the southern patch of quicksand.


Fight the Plasma grunt, and drop through the quicksand patch to the left to reach B4F. Grab the Sun Stone and the hidden Super Potion, take the stairs back to B2F, and drop through the quicksand to the south to return to B3F. Pick up the Max Revive by the south wall and beat the other grunt. Circle around the quicksand, grab the PP Up and drop through the southwest patch of quicksand.


Beat the two grunts and drop through the quicksand to the bottom floor.


When you finally reach the bottom floor, Cheren is right behind you. Alder and Ghetsis are here, but Ghetsis tells you that the Light StoneB/Dark StoneW is not. He tells you to find the other legendary dragon so that you can fight the king, then leaves.

The three of you re-emerge in the Desert Resort. While you're talking with Alder and Cheren, your Xtransceiver rings. It's an urgent call from Professor Juniper, asking you to get to the Nacrene City museum immediately.

Nacrene City

When you reach the museum, Professor Juniper, Cedric Juniper, Bianca, and Alder are waiting for you. The professor says that you are caught up in something serious. Lenora leaves the museum and hands you the Light StoneB/Dark StoneW. Alder asks if you are ready to battle N if anything happens to him, and Lenora remembers that "those two" in Opelucid City are Dragon-type specialists. Fly back to Icirrus City and go northeast to Route 8.

Route 8

Route 8

Route 8 is covered in marshes and water. Constant rain means that the route is always mucky. To the north is the Moor of Icirrus, where a marsh has formed from water collected on the uneven landscape. Battle the Trainers and collect the items as you make your way to the moor.

The Moor of Icirrus

Moor of Icirrus

In the Moor of Icirrus, Pokémon appear in the marshes and water covering the area. To see everything, you'll need a Pokémon that knows Strength to move the rock on the west side.

Once you've gathered all the items, return to Route 8. Go south through the marsh, and turn east when you reach the Trainer Tips sign. Talk to the first Parasol Lady to get TM42 (Facade). The Parasol Lady behind the sign will give you either a Damp Rock, a Heat Rock, a Smooth Rock, or an Icy Rock, depending on the time of day you speak to her. Visit her again for a few days to get each item.

When you try to enter the Tubeline Bridge to continue east, Bianca appears and starts talking to you. She says that there is a lot that she wants to do, but first she needs to know more about Pokémon, so she challenges you to a battle.

Snivy (Pokémon) If the player chose Snivy: Tepig (Pokémon) If the player chose Tepig: Oshawott (Pokémon) If the player chose Oshawott:

When you defeat her, she gives you a Full Restore as she leaves.

Tubeline Bridge

Tubeline Bridge

The Tubeline Bridge is a strong bridge made of steel. Subway trains constantly pass by on the bridge's lower level. On Friday nights, a Biker gang that calls themselves the Black Empoleon appear and take over the bridge. After beating the leader, Jeremy, he renames the gang after your lead Pokémon.

Talk to the jogging Battle Girl to get TM43 (Flame Charge) and continue to the eastern end, where Ghetsis and the Shadow Triad are waiting for you. He compliments you on obtaining the Light StoneB/Dark StoneW, then lectures you about his plans. Once he leaves, continue east to Route 9.

Route 9

Route 9

Route 9 is a short, paved road that cuts through a heavily wooded area. On the north side is Shopping Mall Nine, which boasts the greatest variety of goods in the region. When you leave Tubeline Bridge, an Infielder near the gate throws TM56 (Fling) to you. Check out the department store's wares, then leave east for Opelucid City.
