There will be two items here, a Repeat Ball and a Full Heal. Grab both then head back down the stairs. Once again head back to the Youngster. This time, head west, then south down to the ledge. Jump over the first one and turn your Dowsing MCHN on. Use it to find the hidden Max Revive. After that, jump down the next ledge and take on the Veteran at the base.

    After she's been beat, grab the Max Revive next to her, then head south out of the Tall Grass. You'll see a boulder nearby. Use Strength and push it into its hole to the south. Move over it and grab the Calcium that was hiding behind. Move back north, then head east into and through the gate. You'll be in Accumula Town!

    Accumula Town

    First, of course, head to the Pokemon Center. Simply follow the path east, then south, then east once more and you'll find yourself in front of the Center. Head in and heal your Pokemon, as well as stock up on anything you might need to. Once you're done, head back out so we can get onto exploring!

    Head west first, out onto the grassy area with the two benches. Check inside the bin south-west of the lower bench and you'll find a Max Repel. From there, head north up to the left of the two buildings there. Enter it and move up to the second floor. Talk to the guy near the top of the stairs and he'll give you a Poke Ball. Now head over and talk to the woman behind the desk. She'll ask you two questions about your starter Pokemon. One's about whether it's a certain weight and the other is about whether it's a certain size. If you answer both of these questions correctly, you'll be give a Gem that matches the type of your starter. That's all to do in this building, so exit. Enter the building to the right of this one.

    Head up to the second floor and talk to the man in the south-east corner of the room to receive a BalmMushroom. Exit this building. If you move up the stairs to the right of this building and enter the building at the top, you can listen to two musicians practising. If you want to listen to a nice little track, feel free to head up. Once you're done, head south from the stairs until you reach a set of stairs leading down west. Move down them. Head west and enter the building at the end.

    Inside is a girl on the first floor who will ask for an Excadrill and who will trade a Level 40 Ambipom in return. If you make the trade, you'll then be able to battle her afterwards, taking on the Excadrill that you just traded. If you win, you'll then be able to trade a Hippowdon and receive an Alakazam in return. If you do this, you'll be in a second battle taking on the Hippowdon you traded, along with a Level 63 Stoutland and Sandslash. Once you've done all you want to here, head back to the Pokemon Center. Heal your Pokemon then head south into Route 1!

    It's the first Route that you play through in BW! Coolies! Strangely it's crazily windy nowadays, so it makes for a bit of an interesting experience. Head through the Tall Grass to your south and talk to the female Backpacker below. 'Is it another battle?' 'Why yes, yes it is!'

    Head east into the Tall Grass. Use your Dowsing MCHN to find the hidden Ultra Ball. Talk to the woman wandering around in the Tall Grass and she'll give you a Poiton. Deja vu to the max. From here, you can continue south all the way until you hit Nuvema Town. You might want to head there first before exploring the rest of Route 1.

    Once you're done there, head to the steps taking you west, down to the water. Move onto the water and begin Surfing south. When the water takes you west, follow it until you reach the land at the end. When you do, move onto it. First, head west. In a small alcove you'll find a Full Restore. From there, head up the stairs taking you east. Move south into the Dark Grass, then west over to the Ace Trainer moving about. Need I say what ensues?

    Move down the thin little path leading south along the trees to the right of the Ranger. At the end is a Prism Scale. Pick it up, backtrack to the Ranger then head west until you reach the gate. Head through to Route 17 on the other side.

    Nuvema Town

    First, let's head into the house south-west of the entrance. Inside, you'll find the mother of the main character from BW. She'll greet and talk with you. She'll offer to heal your Pokemon whenever you speak with her, so keep this in mind. Once you're done speaking with her, head upstairs and grab the King's Rock next to the bed. Once you have it, exit the house. When you're back outside, turn your Dowsing MCHN on and use it to find the Zinc to your west. Once you have it, take the path south and enter the eastern of the two houses. Talk to the bald man inside. He's Cheren's father and will give you some Berry Juice. Sweet! Once you get it, head back outside.

    Now head to the building in the north-west part of town. Yep, it's Juniper's lab! Head inside. Here you'll find Professor Juniper herself. If you come here and speak with her when you've seen all of the Pokemon in the Unova Pokedex, she will give you a License. When you speak with her when you've caught all of the Pokemon in the Unova Pokedex and you'll receive the Oval Charm and speak with her when you've caught all of the Pokemon in the National Pokedex and you'll receive the Shiny Charm. It might seem like a lot of effort, but it's definitely worth it for the hardcore Pokemon Trainers out there.

    Also here is the Professor's hubby, Cedric. Speak with him and he'll give you the Super Rod. Hell yes! You can now fish at any body of water all around Unova! How awesome! Once you're done, head back outside. That's all there is to do in Nuvema Town actually, so head back into Route 1 and continue on where you left. That's if you're actually following the walkthrough exactly.

Once you've ridden the upper of the two currents, you'll end up to the west of a female Swimmer. Nonchalantly stroll up to her and ask her if she'd like to partake in a battle with you. Yea.

Once you're done, head back outside.

It's Crasher Wake, a former Gym Leader! After speaking with him for a bit, he'll eventually leave. Follow the path taking you east.

    Head over the bridge when you reach it. Halfway across is a Veteran (what a troll!). Let's teach this troll a lesson! This happens to be a Rotation Battle, by the way.

Use your Dowsing MCHN to find the Heart Scale buried in the sand. Use Surf to head out onto the water. Head east and take the lower of the two currents taking you east. Time to go back and explore the rest of Route 17!

    You'll be spat out near some land. If you want to explore it, it's officially known as P2 Laboratory, so feel free to skip to that section and follow it along, then find your place here once you're done and ready to continue on with Route 17.

    It can be a little hectic traversing these currents, so be careful. When you're ready to, move south from where you got spat out. Move between the two currents moving east, down to some shallows below. Move onto them and grab the Pearl String and the hidden Shoal Shell. Once you've done that, backtrack to where you got spat out of the current heading from Route 18 back into Route 17.

    Now head between the two currents to the west of where you got spat out (one current's heading east, the other north). There'll be a small gap between them. You'll reach some shallows after heading past them. Move onto it and use your Dowsing MCHN to find the hidden Shoal Salt. Move to the south edge of the shallow and move off into the water below. Surf west between the gaps into the currents, over to the Swimmer.

    Let's explore P2 Lab! Move over and onto the land, then head up the stairs to the New Team Plasma Grunt. What's he doing here? Wait, is that the Plasma Frigate?! Herm. Before heading aboard, let's head into the nearby building, which happens to be P2 Laboratory. Grab the Dubious Disc inside. Yep, that's all there was to do! Head on board the Frigate!

    There's very little at all that you can do here. Feel free to explore the Frigate and talk with the Grunts, but the only real thing to do of interest is to find Colress, back in the helm where you battled him when the Frigate was at Giant Chasm. Head there. If you speak with him, he'll challenge you to a battle! Make sure that you're prepared for such a buttle if you plan to partake. He's powerful so you may need to come back when you have a stronger team!

    Continue west from Route 17 until you see the beach to your west. When you do, head south first to a small beach there containing the item PP Max, as well as a Prism Scale hidden to its south. Once both are in your possession, move back onto the water and head back north. When you see that beach to your west once more, move onto it. First find the hidden Pearl near the shore, then move north-west over to the Battle Girl there. Final battle of the route!

    Once she's defeated, head north up the stairs into the Dark Grass. Grab the Iron here, then turn on your Dowsing MCHN and head west. Use it to find the PP Max hidden here.

    And that's everything in south-east Unova! If you haven't explore north-west Unova (starting at Tubeline Bridge) or Clay Tunnel yet, I'd recommend doing so now! More post-game areas to explore! If you plan to tackle north-west Unova, I recommend first working through the Victory Road - Entering N's Castle and N's Castle sections before continuing onto Tubeline Bridge and beyond. Feel free to look at any other post-game content or anything that takes your fancy though!

    Victory Road - Entering N's Castle

    To be able to face Zekrom or Reshiram (depending on your game) and have the chance to catch it, we must first explore N's Castle. Getting there is a bit more difficult than it was in BW, but it's still not too hard. The best way to reach it is to Fly to the Pokemon Leage then head into Victory Road from there. I'll direct you to the entrance below. Head from the Pokemon Center at the Pokemon League south until you're out of the area. Once you are, move around and enter the cave. Head east, then south to exit the cave.

    Now head down the stairs past the two Veterans here. When you see a thin staircase leading down to your south-west, move down it. Move down the second one, and you'll be given a choice between two staircases to move down. Take the eastern of the two and you'll see Zoroark here who will run when you reach the bottom of the stairs. Follow him through the Dark Grass into the cave.

    Head west down the first set of stairs in the cave. Now head south until you reach the large set of stairs. Move down them, jump over the ledge and exit the cave at the bottom. You'll see Zoroark outside. Move over to him and he'll run into the next cave.

    Follow him in once more. Move up to him and he'll once more skitter off. Head north until you see the huge staircase leading down east. Move down it into N's Castle at the bottom.

    N's Castle

    As soon as you enter, you'll see N nearby. Move up to him and he'll talk with you. Answer 'Yes' when he asks his question and he'll team up with you. You can't explore the castle without him teaming up with you. Once he's travelling with you, head north through the door. You'll be in a room full of toys. You'll talk with N some more, before he'll head back out of the room. Don't follow him just yet. Instead, head to the eastern side of the room and grab the Luxury Ball sitting there. Once you've done that, follow N out of the room.

    You'll team back up once more. Head south down the stairs made of rubble. Move west and you'll find an item. Pick it up to find that it's some Protein. Now move east until you reach the next set of rubble stairs. Move up them and go east until you reach yet another set of rubble stairs leading down. Move down them, then head east until you reach TM50 - Overheat at the end. Pick 'er up and head back up the rubble stairs. Now head east, then north and you'll reach a proper set of stairs. Head up them.

    Head west until N says that you should continue alone. When he does, head north through the door. Head north through this area until N calls out and catches up. You'll continue to talk before he throws out his Zekrom (Black 2) or Reshiram (White 2) and challenges you to a battle. This is his only Pokemon, so it won't be a crazily difficult battle. Even so, if you don't think you're up to the task, you can answer with a 'No' and come back later. If you answer 'Yes', the battle will begin.

    Once N's Pokemon has been defeated, N'll talk with you, then turn it into a stone. In Black 2 this is the Dark Stone. In White 2 this is the Light Stone. N will then give this stone to you. Guess what? You can use this to catch the Pokemon you just battled! If you haven't yet explored north-west Unova, head out of N's Castle and the cave, then Fly to Opelucid City, head west onto the Tubeline Bridge and begin exploring. If you already have, Fly straight to Icirrus City so that you can take on Dragonspiral Tower and catch us some Legendaries.

    Tubeline Bridge

    This bridge acts as the gateway to north-west Unova, allowing you to explore these areas after defeating the Elite Four. To get there, simply Fly to Opelucid City (which you'll find has now been cleaned up after Team Plasma's attack), then head out of the east exit and through Route 9. After that, you'll be in Tubeline Bridge!

    Once you enter it, you'll notice Battle Subway trains moving underneath bridge. Run what appears to be south along the bridge until you reach a Battle Girl in the centre. Talk with her and she'll hand you TM43 - Flame Charge. Niiiiice! No one else on the bridge is important, so continue until you reach the gate on the other side. Talk to the Scientist on the north side of the gate to receive EnergyPowder, then exit the gate into Route 8!

    Something to note about Route 8 is that it snows when it's Winter in-game (April, August and December). When this happens, all of the puddles that would normally be accessible in the area is frozen over, leaving only water to fish and Surf on to encounter wild Pokemon. During the other months, moving through puddles is like moving through Tall Grass; Pokemon will appear at random. During Winter, many areas are also slippery, so you'll slide along in a single direction until you hit an obstruction, at which point you can slide in another direction. You'll need to do this to navigate these areas. It's not all that hard, so you shouldn't need me to hold your hand and guide you through. Anyway, let's get onto the walkthrough itself!

    First, talk to the Parasol Lady to the north of the entrance. If you do, she'll hand you a Heat Rock. From there, head south into the puddles and move over to the deep water. Use Surf on it and move to the south edge. Move back onto the puddle there and grab the Big Pearl. Move back onto the water and back onto the land, this time on the western side. Move over to the nearby Parasol Lady and start the battle! This one's a Rotation Battle, against three Castforms, no less.

You can skip ahead to that section if you so wish to, but this walkthrough will explore the rest of Route 8, as well as Moor of Icirrus to the north of Route 8 first. Anyway, from the puddle head north-east and you'll be stopped by a Lass standing in front of some trees to your south. Guess what?

Now head east, following the path south under the bridge when it turns that way. You'll be in Icirrus City! Skip ahead to that section to find information on it!

    Just like Route 8, Moor of Icirrus snows when it's Winter in-game (April, August and December). When this happens, all of the puddles that would normally be accessible in the area is frozen over, leaving only water to fish and Surf on to encounter wild Pokemon. During the other months, moving through puddles is like moving through Tall Grass; Pokemon will appear at random.

    First, turn on your Dowsing MCHN and head west. Use it to find the nearby TinyMushroom. From there, head north up the hill past the bald man. When you see the boulder to your west, move down to it. Use Strength and push it west into its hole. Speak with the nearby Pokemon Ranger to start up a battle with her.

When you do, grab TM84 - Poison Jab here, then backtrack to the Pokemon Ranger. Head back east over the boulder and back up to the bald man on the hill. Now head north. When you hit the puddle, continue north up to the Fisherman.

Use your MCHN to find the hidden Big Mushroom. Head south-east to the puddle, then east through this puddle. When you see two paths leading in two different directions, take the one heading north-east. There's a Heart Scale up. Snatch it up and head back to the puddle. This time head south-east. When you reach the ledge, jump over it. Head east and you'll reach another Fisherman!
