Pokémon: Black & White 2

Pinwheel Forest Part 2

Vincent Lau

Pinwheel Forest is a massive place with multiple areas.

From where you left off, just before the last hollow tree, head south and down the small set of steps. Move south to the next set and move down those too. From there, head north, then east over to the Youngster. If you move into the space north of him, you’ll start a double battle with both the Lass and the Youngster.

But if you wish to, you can do these battles seperately by first talking to the Youngster from his west side, then taking the Lass on afterwards. Feel free to do it either way.

Now continue up the steps and head west to the end. Turn that Dowsing MCHN on and use it to find the hidden BalmMushroom . Now backtrack to that hollow log and head through. You’ll stop before a crazy old dude screams out behind you, surprising both you and Cheren.

You’ll speak with him and he’ll leave. After he does, Cheren will hand you an Up-Grade . How sweet of him. He’ll then leave too. You’re once again alone.

There’s one last Pokemon Ranger hidden under a leaf to your north-east, in front of an item. Move next to the leaf and the Ranger will jump out and enthusiastically challenge you!

When facing heavy foes, Grass Knot is the move to choose!

Collect the item behind her, TM86 - Grass Knot . Head south-east until you reach the ledge. Jump over it and continue back to the main path. Head south, back down to the bridge. You should notice that the gap in the fence on the east side of the road is no longer blocked by a person.

Now you can go through and explore the area there! move through and head down the stairs into the Dark Grass. Move south-west, along the short path to a tile at the end without Dark Grass on it. This tile hides a Green Shard . Grab it, then head east to the end of the Dark Grass.

Head north-east, up the stairs. Follow the path around until you reach a hollow log. Move through it, then move through the next one leading east. Turn on that Dowsing MCHN of yours and use it to find the hidden Bug Gem around here.

You can head north-west and enter the Rumination Field, but it contains nothing but a Pokemon Ranger that just talks at length. Instead, backtrack to the Youngster. Head down the stairs to his south-east and back up the next set. Take the three sets of stairs east, through the Dark Grass.

At the end of the path is TM22 - SolarBeam with your name on it. Pick it up, then head back up the three sets of stairs. Now head along the thin path west along the south edge of this area. Continue around to the stairs leading down to the water. Move down them and continue around west.

Turn the Dowsing MCHN on and use it to find the Rare Candy . Now use Surf and move onto the water. Head west under the bridges and continue to the land at the end. Head up the stairs and grab the PP Max . Now jump down the ledge, head north through the Tall Grass, then up the stairs.

Now go north and head through the hollow log, then finally east until you reach the ledge. Jump down it and move back onto the main path one last time. Now head south, over the bridge and continue until the path turns east.

Follow it east and continue until you reach the Twins at the exit to the inside of the forest. It’s the last battle of this area!

From there, head south until you see a Battle Girl to your east. She doesn’t want to battle, so follow the decrepit railway line east until you see an item nearby, which happens to be a Protein . Grab it then head back west.

Continue south through the Tall Grass and puddles until you reach the very large puddle at the bottom. When you do, hit the switch on the Dowsing MCHN and find the Max Elixir hidden in the puddle. Now move west along the bottom of the puddle. Move through the Dark Grass over to the HP Up .
