Relic Passage (PWT Side) - First Area

Head south and talk to the Worker standing by the west wall. From there, continue south down the stairs. You’ll come upon a few paths. Head down the west one around to a Backpacker. Move in front of her to initiate a battle.

Trainer Battle: Backpacker

Pokemon Level Type
Sandslash 32 Ground

Follow the path along and you’ll come out near some stairs. Follow them down and take the northern of the two paths leading east (the southern one’s blocked). When you reach an intersection with a wider path leading north, follow it. You’ll reach a male Backpacker running back and forth. Go up and challenge him to a battle.

Trainer Battle: Backpacker

Pokemon Level Type
Raticate 32 Normal

After he’s been beaten, head east along the path. At the end you’ll find a Protein . Head back west, then south until you’re back at the intersection. This time head east. You’ll come upon a Hiker.

Trainer Battle: Hiker

Pokemon Level Type
Drilbur 31 Ground
Roggenrola 31 Rock

Next to the Hiker is a boulder which can be pushed into the hole to the west using Strength, but there’s no real need to so; instead press east. You’ll reach a doorway leading to another area. Enter it.

Relic Passage (PWT Side) - Second Area

Second Area

This area has some water, so you can now encounter water-bound Pokemon. If you’ve come to this area after the Plasma Frigate and obtaining Surf from Cheren in Route 6, you can finally surf around and catch them! Anyway, go south down the stairs, then head east. You’ll reach another Hiker

Trainer Battle: Hiker

Pokemon Level Type
Roggenrola 31 Rock
Timburr 31 Fighting

Now head south down the path past the Hiker. When you reach the bottom, head west. You’ll come upon a single lonesome rock. Click on this rock to find a Blue Shard . Now head east past the path leading back north and turn your Dowsing MCHN on. You’ll find a hidden Max Repel , lying in a puddle of water.

Now head back north to where the Hiker is and take the path east. When you reach two paths leading south, follow one of them. There’s a Psychic here keen for a battle.

Trainer Battle: Psychic

Pokemon Level Type
Swoobat 33 Psychic/Flying

Move past the Psychic to his south where there’s yet another rock. This one’s hiding a Green Shard . Now take the path leading east. From here you’ll come upon two paths, one leading north and the other south.

The north one leads to the Relic Castle and the south leads to the rest of Relic Passage where you can actually use it to head back into the Castelia City Sewers.

First, let’s take the southern path. The path will fork out into three separate paths. When it does, take the western-most one. You’ll reach a female Backpacker and another rock containing an item, this time a Yellow Shard ! Defeat her and collect the item.

Trainer Battle: Backpacker

Pokemon Level Type
Watchog 32 Normal

If you want to head back to the Castelia Sewers part of the Relic Passage, continue south and follow the path around until you reach some stairs. Go up these stairs and head through the doorway to head back into the Castelia Sewers section.

Relic Passage (Castelia Sewers Side)

Relic Passage (Castelia Sewers Side)

Does this place look familiar? Maybe not right now, but maybe later… Anyway, follow the path around until you reach a ledge and a boulder. Use Strength on the boulder and push it into the hole.

Don’t jump over the ledge unless you don’t mind being stranded in the Castelia Sewers side of Relic Passage for a while. Once the boulder’s in the hole, take the path north. It’s a long run, but you’ll eventually reach a doorway leading back to the second area.

This area contains four items, an Ultra Ball , Rare Candy , Rocky Helmet and a hidden Rock Gem ! Grab them then head back. Feel free to explore the area, but remember that once you jump over those ledges, there’s no quick way back to the PWT unless the last place you visited was the PWT and you use an Escape Rope.

There’s an item here that you can only collect by jumping over the western-most of the three ledges though. If you do so, you’ll be able to grab a Max Repel , but you’ll be forced to jump over the next ledge down into the main part of the area below.

After that you’ll have to exit through the Sewers and back into Castelia City or use an Escape Rope. Remember that you can Fly back to Driftveil City though. Once you’re done, head back to the PWT side .

Relic Passage (PWT Side) - Second Area

Backtrack north until you’re back where you were with the paths leading south, west and north. Now take the north-eastern path north. Follow it and you’ll come upon the final trainer in this area, a Psychic.

Trainer Battle: Psychic

Pokemon Level Type
Baltoy 32 Ground/Psychic
Yamask 32 Ghost

Next to her is the last rock, which contains a Red Shard . Grab it then continue north. Use Strength on the boulder to push it into the hole and open up the path to Relic Castle !
