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. Once 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.

After pocketing your prize, 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!

Trainer Battle: Hiker

Pokemon Level Type
Aron 61 Steel/Rock
Mawile 61 Steel

Once the Hiker’s cleaned up, follow the cart line north, then west. Just before it turns back north again, head over to the rock to your south-west, in the corner. Check it to find a Blue Shard . Now head north until you reach the Worker walking up and down the cart line. Battle time!

Trainer Battle: Worker

Pokemon Level Type
Sableye 61 Dark/Ghost
Dugtrio 61 Ground

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, backtrack 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

Talk to this guy to ride the minecart to the next area.

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.

Trainer Battle: Hiker

Pokemon Level Type
Swoobat 61 Psychic/Flying
Golem 61 Rock/Ground

After the battle, turn on that Dowsing MCHN of yours and head west. Use it to find the Water Stone hidden in a rock. How amazing! To your south-west is a boulder. 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.

Trainer Battle: Worker

Pokemon Level Type
Diglett 61 Ground
Machamp 61 Fighting

Continue north past the Worker and follow the minecart line all the way around until you see another Worker looking about. Wave your arms and get his attention and the battle will begin!

Trainer Battle: Worker

Pokemon Level Type
Excadrill 60 Ground/Steel
Rhydon 60 Ground/Rock
Nidoking 60 Poison/Ground

If you head west from here, you’ll find a now-open entrance to Mistralton Cave . If you’ve already explored it, there’s not a whole lot of point going back in though. Instead, we’d suggest heading north from the Worker, into the next area.

Clay Tunnel - Area Three

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’!

Trainer Battle: Pokemon Ranger

Pokemon Level Type
Forretress 62 Bug/Steel
Crustle 62 Bug/Rock
Armaldo 62 Rock/Bug

Head west from the Ranger through a small gap, following the path as it turns south. At the end of the path is a Metal Coat . Quite cool. Head back to the Pokemon Ranger. Follow the minecart line north until you reach yet another Worker. You know the drill… Oh, we’re so funny.

Trainer Battle: Worker

Pokemon Level Type
Onix 60 Rock/Ground
Graveler 60 Rock/Ground

Head north until you see the next Worker wandering about. Take him on!

Trainer Battle: Worker

Pokemon Level Type
Graveler 60 Rock/Ground
Golem 60 Rock/Ground

Near this worker you’ll find a Max Revive . Pick it up, then continue north. You’ll reach a female Pokemon Ranger. Move in front of her and the battle will start!

Trainer Battle: Pokemon Ranger

Pokemon Level Type
Ferrothorn 62 Grass/Steel
Cradily 62 Rock/Grass
Carnivine 62 Grass

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 the water 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 head over to the next Worker. 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.
