As soon as you move under the bridge, you're in Icirrus City! This city is pretty spread out so it's easy to miss something. Luckily, I'm here to make sure that you don't! First, when you see the stairs leading up to the higher level, move up them. Head west over the white bridge and you'll be at the Pokemon Center. Head inside. Heal your Pokemon and stock up on any items that you feel you may need. To the right of the Nurse's counter is a man that you can sell evolutionary stones to (eg. Fire Stone, Thunderstone etc.) as well as a variety of different items of value. If you've saved your Nuggets and Big Nuggets, now is the time to sell them, as he will pay you a huge amount of money for each one. He pays a fair bit for other items to, so if there are some that you don't need and want a bit of extra cash, feel free to sell them. Also talk to the Battle Girl south-west of the Nurse's counter. She'll give you a Black Belt! Cool. Now head back outside.

First, let's head east back over the white bridge and further east over the yellow one. When you move toward the item, the three Shadow Triad Members will appear. Not these guys again! They'll almost immediately challenge you to fight. If you choose 'Yes', you'll be battling them in succession. You can, however, answer 'No' when they challenge you to the second or third fight. If you choose to do this, you won't be able to battle the one's that you didn't battle later on. It's one chance only.

If you choose 'No' before battling any of them, you can prepare then come back to them. Once you're ready to, take them on! They're quite powerful, so be careful! The second battle is a Triple Battle and the third a Rotation Battle, so you may want to reorder your party beforehand.

Once the last of them has teleported away, head over and grab the PP Up that was behind them. Now head back west, to the Pokemon Center. Heal your Pokemon, then head west, then north. Continue north past the building to your right until you see an intersection. Take the path leading west. In the building to your north is the former Icirrus City Gym. If you can make it through all the puzzles to the very top you can speak with Brycen, the former Gym Leader. Nothing of known importance will actually happen if you do though, so you don't have to go there if you don't want to.

Once you're done, enter the house to the south. If you talk to the man here, he'll ask to be shown Pokemon. Now, he will give you an item for each category of Pokemon that you show him, which all depends on how many Levels it's been trained since it was caught or you gained ownership of it. If you show him a Pokemon that has gained between 25 and 49 Levels, the man will give you an Exp. Share. If you show him one that has gained between 50 and 98 Levels, he'll give you a Cleanse Tag. Finally, if you can show him a Pokemon that's gained a whopping 99 Levels (so you'd need to gain ownership at Level 1 and train it all the way up to Level 100), the man will give you a King's Rock. The woman here is also of use, telling you the happiness of any of your Pokemon. Feel free to use this tool at your leisure. Once you're done, head back outside and backtrack to the intersection.

Now head east and enter the house there. As soon as you enter, a woman will come up to you and lead you in. The three of them will go a little crazy and will eventually ask you a question for a quiz. You can then enter your answer. If you give the correct answer, you'll receive an Antidote. If you get it wrong, you'll receive Parlyz Heal. You can take the quiz once a day, with questions changing between days. Feel free to come back if you really want, but it's not really worth it. Once you're done here, head back outside.

If you head north from the intersection, you'll reach Dragonspiral Tower, where you can take on Reshiram or Zekrom after defeating them in N's Castle. If you haven't yet explored N's Castle, I'd definitely recommend going there first, otherwise there's not a whole lot of point in exploring the tower. If you decide to do so, skip ahead to the Victory Road - Entering N's Castle. Once N's defeated, head back to Icirrus City and feel free to head into Dragonspiral Tower.

Other than that, there are two last places to explore, but this can only be done during Winter. Feel free to set your DS or 3DS to a Winter month (April, August, December), then re-enter the game, head into a building and back out. When you do, it'll be set to Winter! Once you have, move down the steps east of the Pokemon Center. Slide over the ice to your south, then head south-west. When you reach some steps moving up to your west, head south from the foot of them. You'll move up a pile of snow. When you do, head east over to the house. Enter it.

Inside you'll find a Roughneck who just happens to be an ex-Team Rocket member, all the way from Kanto. Kind of cool. Talking to the Ace Trainer here will cause something interesting to happen. Once you're done, exit the building and jump down the ledges below. Head back to the Pokemon Center.

Now head up the path to the west of the Pokemon Center leading north. Continue until you find a large pile of snow creating a ramp up to an area above near the entrance to Dragonspiral Tower. Move up this ramp and head north through the Tall Grass. Past it is some NeverMeltIce. Nice! Backtrack to the Pokemon Center. Guess what? That's everything! Don't forget to set your DS or 3DS back to the proper month and enter and exit a building to have it reset.

From here, you can either head north to Dragonspiral Tower, or head west from the Parasol Lady south-west of the Pokemon Center into Twist Mountain. Skip ahead to the section you wish to explore, although it's recommended that you explore Dragonspiral Tower.

Here you'll find a man looking out at the tower. It's Cedric Juniper, once more! If you have the Dark Stone or Light Stone (depending on the game), Cedric will stop and speak with you. Before he finishes speaking and leaves, he'll hand you the Old Gateau. Now head onto the bridge and move onto the water to the east of it by using Surf. Move east across the water until you reach land. Move onto it. Head north-east through the grass here to find some Carbos. Now backtrack to the bridge. Move north along the bridge and into Dragonspiral Tower itself.

Take the path leading north found slightly to the west of the entrance. When you reach the boulder, turn your Dowsing MCHN on and continue north. Use it to find the hidden Red Shard. From there, head south-east under a fallen pillar. You'll find that an Elixir was being obscured by the pillar. Grab it, then head back around to the boulder. Use Strength on it and push it into its hole. Head over it and up the stairs. From there, head south over to the item on the pillar. Grab it to find that it's an Ultra Ball. Now head through the doorway near the stairs, into 3F.

Head up the curving stairs. When you reach the top, you'll find gaps in the platforms here, with a number or ramps between them. You can use these ramps to jump from platform to platform, but they're only one-way, making it a little harder to traverse the area. First, use the ramp to jump to the platform to your south. Now take the middle of the three ramps heading west. Continue using the ramps until you reach the Shiny Stone. Pick it up, then jump north, then north again, then east. Grab the Protein here. Now jump south twice, then east. You'll be back at the start.

Now that you have the items, you can aim to get to the entrance to the next level. Once again, jump south. This time, use the bottom of the three ramps leading west. Head west two more times, then head north. You'll now be able to move over and head up the stairs to the next floor, 4F. When you reach the top, move through the door.

Dragonspiral Tower - 4F

Head west up the steps, then south to the next set. Move up them, and continue around until you've moved up another two sets. Once you've done that, head east past the next set leading up and you'll reach a set leading down. Move down them and grab the three items here. The top one is an Adamant Orb, the middle a Griseous Orb and the bottom a Lustrous Orb. Head back up the steps and up the set leading north. Head through the door into 5F.

Dragonspiral Tower - 5F

This puzzle's a little tricker as it's more difficult to easily see a path through. From the entrance, head right until you see a bridge taking you to a ring further in. Now head left until you reach the next bridge. Move across it and grab the TM02 - Dragon Claw. Jump over the one-way ramp and head right, past the bridge leading onto a ring further in. When you reach two bridges leading out, move over both of them and head left. You'll find a PP Max at the end. Head back to the right and head back over both bridges. Head left to the bridge leading and head over it.

You're now in the inner-most circle. Head right and jump over the one-way ramp. Move over the bridge to a right further out. Head left and head over another bridge. Head right over the bridge to the outer-most ring and instead continue on to the end, where a Max Revive is waiting for you. Grab it and move back to the bridge that you skipped past. Move over it and head left to the stairs leading to 6F.

Dragonspiral Tower - 6F

Follow the path around. When you see the Comet Shard, grab it. Continue along the path until you reach the next set of stairs. Move up them onto the final floor.

Dragonspiral Tower - 7F

Head east, then north across the thin path to the main area. Move forward. If you have the Dark Stone or Light Stone you'll stop. You'll be given two options. 'Yes' or 'No'. If you choose yes, Reshiram or Zekrom, depending on which game you're playing, will be released from the stone. Watch the epic cut-scene. Once you have, interacting with the Pokemon will cause the battle to commence. First though, head east to the very edge of the platform. Head north between a thin gap between some rubble and the edge. Now find the nearby hidden Comet Shard by using your Dowsing MCHN. Once you have it, head back around to the Pokemon and interact with it to begin the battle! Before interacting with it, remember to Save your game first, especially if you intend on catching it. It can take many goes before you catch a Legendary Pokemon.

This time around, you can catch the Pokemon! You might consider using a Master Ball here, although it can be better spent on other Legendaries that are more difficult to catch. It's all about getting the enemy's HP as low as possible and using a Master Ball or [[Ultra Ball]s or an appropriate special Poke Ball. Obviously, if you don't want to catch it, just defeat it. You only get the one chance though, so make sure that you don't accidentally kill it.

Want to get Kyurem? If you've caught Reshiram or Zekrom, you can! Just head onto the Giant Chasm - Kyurem section. Note that you can fly from the top floor of Dragonspiral Tower, so it'll save you heading all the way back down to the bottom manually.

If you don't have a Dark Stone or Light Stone, nothing will have happened here. You should head to N's Castle, getting there by Victory Road - Entering N's Castle and complete that section, then return here.

Giant Chasm - Kyurem

So you want to catch Kyurem, once and for all? Guess where it's chillin'? Back in Giant Chasm, where you battled it after chasing Ghetsis! You need to have first captured Zekrom or Reshiram first from Dragonspiral Tower, depending on which game you're playing. Once you have, it's off to Giant Chasm you go!

Either get there by Flying to Humilau City and heading through Route 22 into Giant Chasm or, if you pushed that boulder into the hole when exploring Giant Chasm, Fly to Lacunosa Town and head east into Route 13. Near the start of the route you'll see a boulder in a hole, move over it and head north to the entrance to the Chasm. Head inside.

If you entered by Route 22, you'll need to head south, then west until you see a large set of stairs leading down to a doorway. If you enter by Route 13, you'll start nearby this doorway. Head down and enter it. You'll be out in the forest area where the Plasma Frigate was. Head down the stairs and head north. When you see some Tall Grass leading east, follow it. You'll appear in the clearing that the Frigate created.

Make your way to the east side of the clearing, then head north-east through a gap, some Tall Grass then some Dark Grass. Head east to the very edge of the area, up against a rock wall. Now head north along the side. When the path turns west, follow it up until you reach the stairs leading up to a cave. Move up them and enter.

Head through this area of the cave to the doorway at the end and enter. Move through until you reach Kyurem. Guess what? Battle time! If you want to catch it (and why wouldn't you?), save your game before you start the battle. That way you can restart if you accidentally make it faint, or if it 'accidentally' utterly owns your team. If you do defeat it though, you can always make it through the Elite Four once more and it will reappear, but it's not recommended.

Once it's done, Bianca and Cheren will come in to chill and have a relaxing chat with you. After conversing for a while, they'll leave. Pick up the nearby item, the DNA Splicers. Done! Now head back outside and Fly to wherever you'd like and do whatever you'd like!

You're free to do whatever Post-Game content that you want! You can also head into Twist Mountain from Icirrus City, but it's recommended you access it from Clay Tunnel instead. Speaking of which, you can head there now if you want to. As well as that, there's the eastern and south-eastern Unova to explore. If you wish to explore eastern Unova, see the Black City (Black 2) or White Forest (White 2) sections. If you wish to explore south-east Unova, see the Skyarrow Bridge section. Feel free to look at any other post-game content or anything that takes your fancy though!

Black City

To reach Black City, Fly to Undella Town. Make sure your Pokemon are healed, then head from the Pokemon Center into Route 14. If you haven't yet explored it I suggest you head to that section and follow it along, then skip back to here. Once you're done there, head to the route's south-western exit and head through into Black City!

If you haven't visited Black City before, you'll be blown away by how metropolitan it is as you enter. Head south and continue doing so until you see the bright red roof of the Pokemon Center. Head inside. Heal your Pokemon and restock on items if you really need to. Once you're done, head back out. Normally this would be the point where we'd explore, but for such a huge place, there's an ironically tiny amount of stuff to do here. Instead, move onto the path to the west of the Pokemon Center. If you head down to the intersection to the south, you can head along the road taking you west until you reach the gate at the end. If you move through the gate there, you'll reach Route 15. Move ahead to that section if you want to explore the area.

If you don't want to just yet, there is one thing to do here. Move onto the path to the west of the Pokemon Center. This time follow it around north. When you turn west and see the path turn back north, move along it to the massive building at the end. This is known as the Black Tower. Head over to this section if you want information about it. It is similar in style to that of the Pokemon World Tournament or Battle Subway.

The large black building with touches of orange to the west of the Pokemon Center is the market, which will open as you progress through Black Tower, but offers nothing the first time entering the city. Feel free to head into Black Tower now, or head into Route 15 if you don't wish to explore it at this time.

White Forest

To reach White Forest, Fly to Undella Town. Make sure your Pokemon are healed, then head from the Pokemon Center into Route 14. If you haven't yet explored it I suggest you head to that section and follow it along, then skip back to here. Once you're done there, head to the route's south-western exit and head through into White Forest!

Rest Coming Soon!

If you really want to, you can head straight over the bridge and head through the gate to Marvelous Bridge, but this walkthrough will assume that you want to explore the entire area. From the female Pokefan, head south down the stairs. You'll see a boulder here. Use Strength on it. Push it three tiles south, one tile east, one tile south and finally one tile east, into the hole. If you don't do it in this exact order you'll get the boulder stuck and won't be able to grab TM26 - Earthquake from behind it. Once you have the TM, head north-east through the Tall Grass until you reach another boulder. Push this one three tiles west, two tiles north and one tile east. It will drop into the hole. Move south to the female Backpacker wandering about and take her on.

Use the MCHN to find the hidden Ultra Ball, then head back down the stairs. Move west past the female Backpacker until you reach another set of thin stairs. Move up them and head along the thin path until you've moved beneath the bridge and reached the end. You'll find a Max Potion there. Grab it and move back down the stairs. Jump over the ledge to your south, where the male Backpacker is. Interact with him and a battle will start.

Once Talon's down and out, head east and jump over the first of the two ledges. Now use your Dowsing MCHN to find the hidden HP Up. Jump down the second ledge then circle around to the northern ledge and jump back over it to that you're back in the same area as Talon. Now head up the stairs taking you west. At the top of the stairs you'll find a male Pokefan. Battle time, good sir/madam!

Head north and you'll see the gate leading to Marvelous Bridge to your west. There's a little to do yet though. You'll see a trailer to your north. If you head inside and talk with Scientist Lilian inside, you can trade her a Ditto for a Level 60 Rotom. If you can and want to trade, feel free to do so. Once you're all done, head back out of the trailer.

Once you're back outside the trailer, head east and move north up the stairs. Move over the small bridge and you'll come upon another Scientist. This one doesn't want to trade though, she wants to fight!

The building nearby is known as the Pokemon Transfer Lab, which gives access to the PokeTransfer, allowing you to transfer Pokemon from other Pokemon games (Generation III onwards). Once you're done there, head back to the western gate. Head through it onto Marvelous Bridge.

Marvelous Bridge

PokemonTypeChance of EncounterPossible LevelsFound In
SwannaWater/Flying100%54-57Shadows

First up, if you haven't yet obtained the Lunar Wing from the Strange House, I'd recommend heading there now and collecting it. If you don't, you'll be unable to interact with Cresselia, a Legendary Pokemon. This bridge also functions similarly to the Driftveil Drawbridge did, with it possible to catch Swanna flying overhead. As before, they drop feathers. If you move into a shadow on the bridge, you will either encounter a Swanna or find a feather. It's not possible to determine between the two. Once you're ready to, head west across the bridge.

As you move past the girl, she'll suddenly disappear. The ghost from Strange House! Continue along the bridge. Partway across you'll stop and Cresselia will appear, assuming that you have the Lunar Wing. It will fly down onto the bridge. Interact with it and the battle will begin.

Feel free to attempt to catch the Legendary. If you want to save it for later, simply don't interact with it and come back when you feel that you're ready to take it on. Make sure to save your game before taking it on, especially if you want to catch it. If you fail to catch it, then you can just restart and try again. Once you're all done, continue west.

Near the end of the bridge you'll find a man who's willing to sell you a Level 5 Magikarp for a cheap $500! Whoa! Hmmm, something seems familar, eh? Seriously though, these things are harder to get, being in Unova, as opposed to Kanto, so it may even be worth it if you're looking to train it into a Gyarados. Once you're done, continue to the elevator at the end. Take it down to the gate below. You'll have opened up the entrance between Marvelous Bridge and Route 16! Cool! Head out to Route 16 and feel free to fly to wherever you want and do whatever you want!

Cave of Being

To reach the Cave of Being, Fly to Floccesy Town. Head north out of town into Route 20. Head east over the bridge, then north through the Tall Grass. Head east down the stairs, south along the past, then east over to the water there. Use Surf and head south, then west over to the waterfall. Use Waterfall to move up it. Head west, then south between the rocks. Follow the path around until you reach the entrance to the Cave of Being. Head inside. Now that you've (assumedly) beaten the Elite Four, Professor Juniper will be inside the cave. Move up behind her and she'll spin around.

Speak with Juniper, then head north past her. You'll be brought into the centre of the cave and three Legendaries, known as the Lake Guardian Trio, will appear before fleeing the cave. Guess what? They're now spread out across the Unova region! Want to go catch them? Let's go! Juniper will leave, and you should too.

Although you can find these three Pokemon in any order that you like, this walkthrough will do it in the following order:

You can, of course, skip to any of the three sections and do them in the order that you want though. Anyway, onto the first of them!

Celestial Tower - Mesprit

Fly to Mistralton City, then head out into Route 7. Head all the way through to Celestial Tower at the end. Move up to the top floor of the tower. Here you'll find Mesprit by attempting to walk up the stairs to the bell. You'll stop and be asked a question. Answer 'Yes' and it'll appear! Feel free to take it on. You can, of course, try and catch it. If you decide to, save first as you only get one chance. If you fail to catch it, simply reload your game and try again.

Once you're done here, use Fly on the top of Celestial Tower and head to Victory Road.

Route 23 - Azelf

From Victory Road, head south into Route 23. Head down the stairs and under the bridge until you reach the T-intersection. Take the path leading west until you reach the small tree. Use Cut on it, then head west along the path that you just opened. Keep going past the next small tree to the point where the path forks, with both paths continuing to lead west. Take the lower path and head up the stairs onto the small platform. Move onto the tile just at the top of the northern-most part of the stairs. Select the 'Yes' option and Azelf will appear. Feel free to take it on. You can, of course, try and catch it. If you decide to, save first as you only get one chance. If you fail to catch it, simply reload your game and try again.

Once you're done here, use Fly and head to Nacrene City. This of course assumes that you've already visited the city once before. If you haven't, you'll need to visit by foot first. If so, see the Skyarrow Bridge section and follow the sections along until you reach Nacrene City.

Nacrene City - Uxie

Once you've reached Nacrene City, head to the front of the Nacrene Museum. Walk into the very centre of the paved circle in front of the museum. When you move onto the tile, you will be asked a question. Answer 'Yes' and the last of the Lake Guardians, Uxie, will appear. Take it on, the same as the others. You can, of course, try and catch it. If you decide to, save first as you only get one chance. If you fail to catch it, simply reload your game and try again.

Once you're done, you will have completed the Lake Guardian Trio portion of the game. Feel free to go on with whatever post-game content that you want to.

Reversal Mountain - Heatran

Once you've found the Magma Stone in Route 18, you'll be able to use it to encounter Heatran, a Legendary found in Reversal Mountain. The easiest way to get there is to fly to Lentimas Town and head east into the mountain from there.

Reversal Mountain - Heatran - Black 2 Version

Once you're inside the mountain, head north through to the back of the first area. Move through the door leading east. Head south until you reach the south edge of the room, then head east. Continue east until you reach the Doctor standing in front of a doorway down some steps. Move down the steps and enter the door. In the next room, head north down the steps. Attempt to move down the steps to the small little section that's lower than the other areas. You'll be stopped and asked to answer a question. Answer with 'Yes' and Heatran will appear. Move up to it and interact with it to begin the battle. Don't forget to save it first, that way if you fail in catching (or defeating it, if you don't want to catch it), you'll be able to try again! You only get one shot otherwise!

Exploring Clay Tunnel, you'll be able to encounter Regirock, as well as Regice and Registeel after it. Sounds cool? Thought so! To get there, Fly to Driftveil City. Heal your Pokemon at the Pokemon Center if you need to, as well as stock up on items. When you're ready, head north from the Center. When you reach the stairs leading up to your north, move up them, then head west down the, now open set of stairs leading down west to the entrance to Clay Tunnel. Use the Dowsing MCHN just outside the tunnel to find a Rare Bone hidden in a pile of dirt. Once you have it, head into Clay Tunnel itself!

Clay Tunnel - Area One

From there entrance, head north along the old mine cart lines until you reach the Hiker. He'll speak up and initiate a battle!

You should see a small set of stairs leading east, down to a slightly lower area. Move down them and use your Dowsing MCHN to find a Full Heal. Once it's in your possession, back track to the Hiker and take the minecart line leading east. At the end is a Worker standing in front of a minecart. Talk with him and answer 'Yes' to ride the minecart to the next area, seeing as there's nothing else to do here.

Clay Tunnel - Area Two

In this area, first move south. You should almost immediately see a boulder. Use Strength to push it into the hole to its west. You don't need to move over it right now, but it will come in handy as a shortcut if you ever went to quickly skip most of this area. Okay, now head south to where the water is. Move onto it using Surf and head over onto the island in the middle. Check the southern-most of the two rocks to find a Steel Gem. Now Surf east, back over to the ground there. Move onto the ground and continue south. In a corner of the area, as the minecart line bends east, you'll find a Red Shard. Pick 'er up and follow the cart line around to the Hiker. Take him on!

Strength should still be activated, so use it to push the huge rock south two tiles, into the hole. Head over it and grab the HP Up and the Nugget behind. Head back over the boulder and follow the cart lines north. You'll hit a Worker. When you do, fight that b*tch!

Clay Tunnel - Area Three

Follow the minecart lines until you see a Pokemon Ranger to your west. When you do, move over to him and start the battlin'!

If you continue north, you'll reach the entrance to Twist Mountain. We don't want to head there just yet, but we'll be there soon enough. Instead, head south, then east from the Pokemon Ranger, over to the Worker in front of the minecart. Talk with him and ask him to transport you to the first area.

Clay Tunnel - Multiple Areas

Although you're back in the first area, you're in a different part, allowing you to access new portions of the area. Head south, past the boulder to your east and down the steps to the one there. Use Strength and push this boulder south into the hole. You can now head west over the boulder, up the steps and head south, following the minecart lines to reach the entrance to the tunnel, if you were after healing. If you are, heal then come back to the boulder.

Once you're ready, head east from the boulder then south to the Rare Bone at the end. Collect it up and head back to the boulder. Now head north from it, back to the one that you skipped before. This time, push it east into its hole. Move over it and grab the Green Shard. Talk to the worker and get him to transport you to the next area. When you reach the next area, move over to the next Worker and get him to transport you too.

You should now be in an area with a body of water to your north. Move over to it and Surf north over it. When you reach the other side, turn your Dowsing MCHN on and use it to find the Iron hidden in a rock. Enter the nearby door. Use Strength to push the boulder into the hole here, then move over it to the next work. Once more, ride the minecart to the next area.

Okay, first head west and push the boulder into the hole. You can now easily access the Underground Ruins, the place that we're about to enter. head north-east toward the door. Check the rock just before the door to find a Big Nugget, then enter it.

Move out into the large open area. On the north side is a man. Feel free to talk to him, but he doesn't want to battle. See the circles to the north, one inside the other? Move onto the centre of the small circle. Okay, here's a bit of a puzzle. From the circle, you need to move exactly nine tiles east, then six tiles south. Keep facing south and press the 'A' button. You'll be asked a question. Answer with 'Yes' and the ground will shake. Once you can continue on, move up to the door just north of the now red circle. Attempting to move through it will cause it to open. You'll head through into the next area.

Head north up to the statue. To either side you'll see a gap between a rock and the wall. Move through one of these gaps and head around along the path until you reach a thin path leading north. When you do, follow it down to Regirock waiting for you at the end. Interact with it and the battle will begin! As per usual, save the game before battling the Pokemon, just in case you fail in catching it, assuming you wish to catch it.

Regirock65Rock

Once you're done, depending on your game, a key will be unlocked. This of course is if you catch the Regi (you need to if you want to encounter the other ones). The Iron Key will be unlocked if you're playing Black 2 and the Iceberg Key will if you're playing White 2. The Iron Key is used to encounter Registeel, while the Iceberg Key is used to encounter Regice.

Let's stay and get us the second Regi, eh? What you need to do is exit out of this area, back to the large cavernous room. There, save and exit the game. Now you need to re-enter the game. What we now need to do is set the key that you just found so that it's active. Here's how we do it:

  • Select 'Unova Link' on the main menu (4th option)
  • Select 'Key System' in the next menu (1st option)
  • Select 'Key Settings' in the next menu
  • Select 'Mysterious Door' in the next menu
  • Select the newly unlocked key so that it becomes active
  • Exit back to the main menu and enter the game!

Once you've done that. Head back to the circle that you started on before. Once again, head nine tiles east and six south. Turn the switch on and head through the door. Head to where you encountered Regirock. This time you'll encounter a new Regi! Save your game, then interact with it and the battle will start!

Once you've done that you only have the other Regi to catch! Unfortunately it's not so easy to get your hands on this one. What you need to do is transfer the key from someone else's Pokemon game of the opposite version to your own. This can be done using the Unova Link Key System Once you do, activate that key and repeat what you just did for the last Regi. Use the Regi information above to help you out if you need to. Once you're done with the final Regi, that's all your really need to do!

It is recommended that you get your hands on all three Regis in some way or another (trade or getting the other key). Once you have them all, place them all in your party and you'll be able to awaken the great Regigigas when you encounter him in Twist Mountain. That's the place we should be heading to now!

To get to Twist Mountain, head out the south exit from the large cavernous room. Head south-west to the minecart line, then follow it west over the boulder. When it turns north, follow it in that direction. When you see the Pokemon Ranger to your north, head past her and continue on until you reach the doorway at the end. Head on through and you'll be in Twist Mountain!
