Pokémon: Black & White 2

Route 20

Vincent Lau

Surf across the water to the south east and then use the Dowsing Machine to find the Heart Scale (right).

Assuming you’re coming from Virbank City, you’ll begin at the north-east part of the route. Head west from the gate and down the steps taking you south. Once you’ve moved the last of them and see the Dark Grass nearby, head south-east over to the water.

Head onto the water with and Surf south-east to a bit of land there. Move onto it and use your Dowsing Machine to find the Heart Scale .

Unless it’s Autumn , there’s actually nothing else that you can do here. If you’re too impatient for Autumn to come naturally, feel free to change the date on your DS or 3DS. Simply set it to March, July or November and re-enter the game. You will need to exit and re-enter the area to force the switch between seasons.

When it’s Autumn, continue heading south from where you obtained the Heart Scale until you reach the southern shore. Move onto it and head south-west over the leaves to the two items. The south-east of the two is a Max Revive . The other is a Rare Candy . Grab them both.

It turns out Pokemon Rangers finally have learnt to hide properly. There’s two nearby! Just to the west of the items is one. Move over to coax her out of hiding. Take her on!
