Pokemon Black and White 2 Guide Guide Info

To Gym 7 (Part 1)

Reversal Mountain (Black 2)

1F - Area One

Name Type Location Encounter Rate
Spoink Psychic Cave 20% (Entrance), 5% (Main)
Grumpig Psychic Cave 5% (Entrance), 20% (Main)
Skorupi Poison/Bug Cave 15%
Boldore Rock Cave 25%
Woobat Psychic/Flying Cave 35%
Excadrill Ground/Steel Dust Cloud 100%

Head north, up the steps. When you reach the path veering off to the west, head down it and grab the Max Repel at the end. Move back to the main path and continue on. Head through the doorway when you reach it.

1F - Area Two

You’ll run into Bianca. She’ll decide that it’s best if the two of you team up, so you will. This works in much the same way as when you teamed up with Hugh in the Castelia City Sewers. Single battles you’ll still fight yourself, while for double battles you’ll each control one Pokemon.

Wild Pokemon battles are all double battles whilst you’re travelling with Bianca. Additionally, and awesomely, both your Pokemon and Bianca’s Pokemon will automatically heal back to full health and lose any status ailments after each and every battle, including single trainer battles. Yay!

Bianca’s party is as follows:

Pokemon Level Type
Musharna 40 Psychic
Stoutland 38 Normal
Mienfoo 38 Fighting

With Bianca to provide support you can relax and explore the mountain innards at your leisure!

This area’s big! Let’s head south first. As you’re heading down this path, you’ll see a Black Belt. Feel free to partake in a rotation battle with him if you want. If not, move past him without him seeing you.

Rotation Battle: Black Belt

Pokemon Level Type
Gurdurr 37 Fighting
Scraggy 37 Dark/Fighting
Scraggy 37 Dark/Fighting

Once you’re done, continue south. When you reach a path heading east, follow it, heading north-east. You’ll reach an item at the end. It’s a Nugget ! Head back to the main path and continue south. Turn on your Dowsing MCHN when you reach a stalagmite in the middle of the path. Check the stalagmite to find a Green Shard .

Continue on and you’ll reach a Backpacker and Hiker that will team up against you when you move in between them. These battles can be conducted separately by talking to the Backpacker from his north.

Double Battle: Hiker and Backpacker

Hiker’s party

Pokemon Level Type
Gurdurr 37 Fighting
Crustle 37 Bug/Rock

Backpacker’s party

Pokemon Level Type
Golbat 37 Poison/Flying
Swanna 37 Water/Flying

Take the path leading east just past them. Grab the Hyper Potion along the path. Continue along it until you reach the end, then turn on your Dowsing MCHN. Use it to find a hidden Blue Shard . Head back to where the Backpacker and Hiker are and continue south.

When you reach the corner, head south into the rather obscured tunnel. In the next area, continue south to exit the cavern. Grab the Escape Rope and Smoke Ball then return to the corner. This time head east, further into the cavern. You’ll reach a Pokemon Ranger wandering around.

Trainer Battle: Pokemon Ranger

Pokemon Level Type
Swoobat 38 Psychic/Flying

Note: After defeating her, she’ll give you a Persim Berry.

Continue east. Bianca will stop you and say something, then you’ll be able to continue on. Continue onto the Doctor. Defeat him and you’ll be able to get him to heal your Pokemon any time you talk to him. A bit useless while Bianca is here, but great when she’s not.

Trainer Battle: Doctor

Pokemon Level Type
Swoobat 38 Psychic/Flying

Heading past the Doctor, down the steps and through the doorway won’t lead anywhere right now. Later, after you’ve beaten the Champion, you can find the legendary Heatran beyond. But for now, continue east. When you reach a path shooting off from the main path, leading north.

Follow it around to find TM69 - Rock Polish . Head back to the main path and continue east. You can avoid the Triple Battle with the Battle Girl if you want, but feel free to fight her.

Rock Pokemon are generally slow, so they'll definitely appreciate the Speed boost from Rock Polish.

Triple Battle: Battle Girl

Pokemon Level Type
Riolu 37 Fighting
Gurdurr 37 Fighting
Riolu 37 Fighting

Once she’s defeated, continue east. When you reach path leading north, continue east. Follow it until you reach the stalagmite at the end. Check it to find a Star Piece ! Head back to where the path led north and follow it. At its end is a Revive . Grab it, then backtrack all the way back to the start of this area, where the Black Belt was.

Take the path leading east from the entrance. Continue along until you reach a female Backpacker and a Hiker. Move in between them and they’ll team up against you in a double battle.

Double Battle: Hiker and Backpacker

Hiker’s party

Pokemon Level Type
Boldore 37 Rock
Excadrill 37 Ground/Steel

Backpacker’s party

Pokemon Level Type
Golbat 37 Poison/Flying
Darmanitan 37 Fire

Move south past the Hiker and collecting the PP Up behind him. Move back to the path and keep heading east. You’ll reach two Ace Trainers, one male, one female. You can challenge these guys together or separately.

Double Battle: Ace Trainer (Male) and Ace Trainer (Female)

Male trainer’s party

Pokemon Level Type
Vibrava 39 Ground/Dragon
Camerupt 39 Fire/Ground

Female trainer’s party

Pokemon Level Type
Grumpig 39 Psychic
Drifblim 39 Ghost/Flying

Move south past the female Ace Trainer, then take the path west. At the end of the path, turn on your Dowsing MCHN and use it to find the Calcium . Move back to where the Ace Trainers are and continue east, down the stairs.

You’ll come upon a Scientist. If you’ve filled in the Habitat List for Reversal Mountain, she’ll give you the ever-useful TM54 - False Swipe . Next, take the path south from the Scientist. Keep going until you move up the stairs. You’ll see a stalagmite coming out of the ground to your east. Check it for a Elixir .

Continue south until you reach the stairs at the end. Move down them into B1F.

With False Swipe under your belt, catching wild Pokemon should become much easier. You will need to watch out for Pokemon that have recoil damage moves though, as they can kill themselves when at 1 HP...

B1F

Check the stalagmite to your south to find a Water Gem . Move down the stairs and challenge the Pokemon Ranger here.

Trainer Battle: Pokemon Ranger

Pokemon Level Type
Watchog 38 Normal
Grumpig 38 Psychic

Note: After defeating him, he’ll give you a Persim Berry.

Grab the Toxic Orb that the Pokemon Ranger was circling around, then leave B1F and head back into 1F. Backtrack all the way back to the Scientist and head east through the doorway into 1F - Area Three.

1F - Area Three

Head south to the end of the area and move out the door into the air outside. Bianca will stop and talk with you before you do and will tell you that once you leave, you’ll no longer be able to team up with her throughout the dungeon.

You’ll be asked if you really want to leave, if you choose 'Yes' she’ll leave and you’ll be free to head out. You can’t leave unless you choose 'Yes'.
