- Return to the lab and speak with the professor.
- Go to the gym.
- You may notice that you are now invisible. Talk to the person in the gym and you'll realize that you have to give a bouquet of four flowers to the gym leader before he will fight you.
- Touch all four flowers and you will become visible, then go defeat the gym leader.
- You can now use the HM Strength. Before you leave the town, go back to Wonder Cave and by using Strength you can get an IV Stone and the dolly. With these, you can use Strength without Pokémon.

- Go to the gym and defeat the gym leader.
- Once in the gym, take the teleporters in this order to reach the gym leader: Left, Bottom Right, Bottom, Bottom Right.
- Head to the Shadow Path.
The PokéHadron ColliderEdit
- Head through Shadow Path, just keep trying to go left and up (you will need strength/dolly but flash is optional). Keep going until you get to the ladder which takes you to Fianga Town.
- There are lots of things in Fianga Town but the main ones are the Police Club (good for grinding), the egg at the top left (Togepi), and the Nuzlocke Lord for nuzlocke challenges.
- When you are finished with Fianga Town head north and battle through Route 306 and Route 307 until you reach the blockade of people and speak to Professor Oak.
- After Professor Oak, head south and you will be teleported to a lab. Talk to the scientist and read the book here and then leave and you will be teleported back to Professor Oak (make sure to use the Pokémon Center when at the lab before talking to the scientist because if you faint, it will be a long trip back to the professor).
- After talking to the professor again head north to the ruins of Nyasa Town. Climb the rocks (you don't need rock climb in this area alone) and head to the cave in the center.
- Head south through the Hadron Collider until you get back to the Hadron Collider lab, battle Team Asgard/Olympus and then explore the lab.
- Exit the lab, heal your Pokémon and then head south to Route 308.
The Third and Fourth GymsEdit
- Battle your way through Route 308.
- Enter Kariba Town. In Kariba Town the main things to get are a Pokérus Corsola (if you have the mystery gift event), the bike and a lucky egg. Afterwards, head to Route 308.5 . There is also a person trading an Absol for a Rapidash if you have one.
- In Route 308.5 you'll find the Trick house (hasn't been released as of 1.4.7) and a desert. You will want to scale the mountain in the center and pick up the Go-Goggles. I would set them as "F5" as you'll need them quite a lot.
- Head south and you will encounter Team Swag facing Team Asgard/Olympus. You will then have to battle your rival, but will you be able to handle the power of swag? (Spoiler: yes, you will, and your spoils of it (sorry) is the HM Cut). After this you will be able to head south to Agassiz Town.
- In Agassiz town before going to the gym or psychic temple head to the northeast of the town and you will trigger an event in which a man will give you secret power. If you head north of this you will find your secret base.
- Now you'll notice the gym is blocked off so head to Psychic Temple. Go up the stairs on the right side and you will eventually trigger a cutscene that unlocks the gym.
- Head to the gym and click on boulders to create your path. Defeat the gym leader
- .Just outside of your Secret Base head east and circle around the town until you find the Machete meaning you will never have to teach a Pokemon Cut.Head back to Fianga City
- Cut the trees outside Fianga's gym with the Machete then head inside the gym. To get to the gym leader take the bottom left tile and go: left, right, down.
- Defeat the Gym leader and the prepare to head to Route 309.
The Fifth Gym and Ladoga TownEdit
- Battle your way through Route 309, and if you'd like you can go to Turkana Town, but it's really only useful for the Pokémon Center so you can fly there. After that head to Route 310.
- Battle your way straight through Route 310 to get to Kivu Town. At Kivu Town go join the Pokémon Rangers (good for leveling) and then collect HM02 Surf from one of the members.
- Go battle Gym leader Graham. Just head right at the beginning of the gym and you should have no problem getting to him quickly. But before you go in, however, I suggest going to the middle house in Kivu town and trading for the Absol. The trader will take any Pokémon so I would say just grab a super low-level from your PC and trade. The Absol will have the same level as the Pokémon that is traded for it. Absol has 3 dark type moves that it learns before level 40: Pursuit,Bite, and Taunt. With these three moves you can easily beat the entire gym. Just make sure you have a few persim berries to ward off confusion. On the top right of the town you can find TM30 - Shadow Ball (Ghost-Type) which can be really useful in the gym.
- After this, head to the beach and you should encounter the professor's assistant. Beat him and you will get HM03 surf.
- Now surf across Route 311 to get to Ladoga Town. This contains the house where the man collecting Ancient Tomes (for Regigigas) lives. You can also get and Instant Lapras (replacing Surf) and some battle items here. When you're ready, head to the center of town to battle the Admins.
The Sixth GymEdit
- Head to Route 312 and walk past the guarded entrance until you get to Route 313 and meet Team Swag looking for the TM for Swagger. Defeat your rival[5 pokemon].
- and continue along Route 313 by going left, right, and down at the intesections.
- Proceed down Route 314 and you'll end up in Treader Town
- go to the casino to get a coin case and triple triad deck. Then speak to to the old man in the house who will give you HM Waterfall. You will be prompted to answer a couple questions before you are given. Answer: very well, yes, Kanto, Unova, Sinnoh, Unova, Orre (x2). Answer in this order to get Phione Card.
- Head to the Gym and complete the puzzles. You may use this as a reference. Defeat the gym leader and then see what all the ruckus is outside.
Escaping the BaseEdit
- Join the crowd outside Mount Press. You'll wake up surrounded in Team Asgard's/Olympus' base. Go to the Southwest corner to get Graham to rescue you.
- Move along the table to the right of the nurse. The clipboard between the two grunts has the TM for Bulk Up on it.
- Battle your way to the computers to execute the Masterball.exe program. Then on the second level head to the stairs on the far left, follow the corridor to another set of stairs and you should find the Masterball.
- Head back to the second level and head up the top most stairs in the center of the room. You will come across the mess hall where you will find Ash and some leftovers.
- Head up the next set of stairs and defeat the Commander. Then head back to the second level and head up the third staircase to escape to Route 310.
- Fly back to Treader Town and prepare for Mt. HardYou'll want lots of Ultra balls, a lot of hyper potions/revives, the HM's Strength/Dolly, Surf/Instant Lapras, Waterfall, and Cut/Machete. You'll also find a Pokémon with a status inflicting move (for paralysis or sleep) and a Pokémon with false swipe to be very useful.
- Mt. Press is very simple you just keep heading up using the nurses as checkpoints. You will need all the HM's aforementioned to scale it. Also brings tons of repels.
- When you get to the top you'll enter a double battle with the swagmeister against Team Asgard/Olympus. After that, heal your Pokémon and head on through to the boss.
- Defeat Odin/Zeus, heal your pokemon, and prepare to battle Jirachi/Victini. Get him down to one hp using false swipe then paralyse him or put him to sleep and just keep using Ultraballs. He has a much lower catch rate than in normal Pokémon games.
- After you've caught Victini/Jirachi and Gold has been sent running head back down the mountain until you meet Professor Oak and CO. They will transport you back to Treader Town.
The Seventh GymEdit
The seventh Gym is in Blackfist City. Head back through Route 312 and onto Route 315. Battle your way the Thunder Underroute and arrive at Blackfist City. There are a large number of people to talk to and you can pick up useful TMs from the Blackfist Department Store. When you want to battle the gym leader go to the department store, and head to the top floor. There you will talk to Demitri, prompting him to leave to return to his Gym. Now you will be able to challenge the 7th gym.
The gym is laid out such that you have to answer trivia questions to keep moving forward. The answers to the questions are:
- Dialga, Palkia , Giratina
The Eighth GymEdit
- Once you've defeated Demetri and earned the 7th badge, stop off at the Blackfist Safari Zone and pick up TM94 Rock Smash. Then you can continue your journey along Route 316.
- After going through the tunnel, and the route after it, you get to Caspian City with the eighth gym. You can revive fossils, give Pokémon their dream world abilities in exchange for a Dream Stone, get trainer battle IDs, and get the HM for Dive there. The gym leader only uses fire type Pokémon, but there is always strong sunlight (basically Sunny Day), so fire attacks do more damage and water attacks do less. Also, you fight her in a double battle with Jake.
- Afterwards go back to the tunnel and head Bottom left and you should see a dive spot which should lead you to Victory Road.
Victory Road is long and even though there aren't that many trainers you should still stock up on potions etc. Once you make it out of the Rock section you won't have much to worry about other than random encounters.
As with other Pokemon games, your rival will be waiting to ambush you at the end of the road.
The Elite Four (and Aftermath)Edit
The Quasar Plateau is quite challenging. The members of the Elite Four use Dark, Electric, Water and Dragon types. Make sure that your party are at least level 75 in order to stand the best chance. Remember that you can do Police and Ranger Club missions as well as the Developer Challenge if you need experience.
Before entering the Elite Four Hall, you must set your Battle Style to 'set.'

You will be whisked away to investigate mysterious earthquakes coming from Nyasa Town, where you'll encounter Odin/Zeus. You are immediately thrown into combat against him. He has Salamence, Shaymin, Divaevus. Defeat him, and you're told you have to investigate the Vesryn Spear for the mysterious 5th Sigil Hall.

- Dojran City, first City of "The Vesryn Spear".

Third SigilEditAfter defeating Corlett in Maggiore City, use Rock Climb to continue to the Circle of Power. You'll have to fight your rival there so be sure to use the available Nurse Joy to heal your pokemon beforehand. Head through Route 324 to get to Skadar City and the third Sigil Hall.
Fourth Sigil Edit
After overcoming Morgan, head along Route 325 to Mount Nova. The mountain is a long dungeon with many unavoidable trainer battles, so make sure that you stock up on healing potions, revives etc. There are three stages, a lava area, a grassy outdoor and a cave-like maze. Be sure to heal before going through the door at the end of the maze because once you do, you'll end up in a battle with Athena/Freyja. After the battle, continue through the final ice section of the mountain to Constance City and the fourth Sigil Hall.
The Vesryn Spear 2Edit
After defeating Wilson, head to the Timelocked Temple located in the southeast of Constance City. Inside, you will have to make it to the segundo andar and touch a mew statue and find HMXX. You are able to use Tesseract. Some possibilities for ways to use this HM is to find the Rare boxes, Head to Zarivar Town after obtaining Tesseract, Surf upwards from the city for the final battles in Varlox Cave.(Not Neccessary - ..heading back to Onega Town in order to get the HM item "Time Caller", accessing the Delta Temple in Yangtze Town and, finally opening up the Fifth Sigil Hall in Varlox Cave.)
When the player is ready for the final battle, head to Varlox Cave, located north of Zarivar Town.
Aroma Region, Cephei TownEdit
When you arrive in the Aroma region, there will be a case in which there are 3 starter pokemon, Torchic, Treecko and Mudkip. Then there will be a note telling you to meet the professor in her lab at Tauri Town. In this town, there is a trader, your smeagle for a ditto, and the relic song move tutor. To progress, go through route 1X that is at the top of Cephei Town.
Towards Tauri TownEdit
Battle your way through route 1X with your new pokemon, and you will notice an exit blocked off by team aqua/magma members, just ignore this for now and head up to Tauri town. In Tauri town, there is a person who gives you the quick ball, and once you are ready, head into the lab. The professor will give you the Snag machine, and you will get into a battle with team aqua/magma. They have a shadow eevee, by the way. Once you are done, head back to 1X and go to route 2X towards orbic cave.
Further Aroma Region Edit
