The first building you can enter on the north side of the bridge contains a woman who will heal your Pokemon for you whenever you ask. Feel free to take advantage of it. From here, you can either head straight over the bridge to the other side and head into Route 11 .

Just note that you have to battle a Gentleman to cross the bridge though, the troll. Or you can explore the area south of the bridge on the eastern bank. There’s a fair bit to do! We assume that you’ll explore the entire area, so let’s go!

Head south from the foot of the bridge. Head through into the tennis court and challenge the Smashers doing suicides (no, not that kind! In Australia, "suicides" are another name for doing sprints between two marked lines). The first Smasher is on the eastern side of the court.

Trainer Battle: Smasher

Pokemon Level Type
Whimsicott 44 Grass

The second Smasher is on the western half of the court.

Trainer Battle: Smasher

Pokemon Level Type
Lilligant 44 Grass

Grab the Carbos to her north. Continue west past the courts and follow the path leading under the bridge. You’ll find an Artist on the other side, willing to battle.

Trainer Battle: Artist

Pokemon Level Type
Sunflora 42 Grass

Continue north past him and you’ll notice a secluded little path heading back east. Turn your Dowsing MCHN on and enter the path. Use the MCHN to find the Big Mushrooom . Continue past the clearly insane person over to the other side of the area to find a Rare Candy just… lying around.

Grab it then head back out, past the Artist and back under the bridge. Use Surf and start to move west across the river. Halfway you’ll find a small island with a Fisherman on it. Head onto it. Grab the Heart Scale next to him, then challenge him.

The area around the bridge is littered with goodies.

Trainer Battle: Fisherman

Pokemon Level Type
Basculin 42 Water

You can Surf ahead to the other side, but for completion’s sake, this walkthrough will take you back and over the bridge itself. Surf back to the western bank and head back to the foot of the bridge. Start heading up the bridge. Heal your Pokemon in the first house if you want.

The other houses contain nothing of interest, so head towards the centre of the bridge. A Gentleman will stop you. He’ll ask you a question. If you answer 'No', he won’t let you by. If you answer 'Yes', he’ll let you by, but not without a good-fashioned fight.

Trainer Battle: Gentleman

Pokemon Level Type
Durant 43 Bug/Steel
Lucario 43 Fighting/Steel

Continue over the centre of the bridge and begin heading down the stairs on the other side. Skip past the first house, but enter the second. If you talk to the Baker inside and answer 'Yes' to his question, the two of you will battle!

Trainer Battle: Baker

Pokemon Level Type
Heatmor 42 Fire

Head back outside and head down off the bridge onto the western bank. Let’s take the path north first and get the majority of the battles out of the road. Just before the basketball courts, you’ll notice a musician next to a Vending Machine. Next to the machine is a bin containing a PP Up .

Grab it, talk to the musician (simply because musicians are awesome !) then head into the courts. There are two Hoopsters here and both are looking to partake in Triple Battles!

Triple Battle: Hoopster (outer)

Pokemon Level Type
Magby 42 Fire
Magmar 42 Fire
Magby 42 Fire

Triple Battle: Hoopster (inner)

Pokemon Level Type

Electabuzz 42 Fire
Elekid 42 Fire

Once they’re defeated, backtrack to the foot of the bridge. This time take the path south. When you reach the Tall Grass, turn on your Dowsing MCHN and find the hidden Max Ether nearby. Now head east through the Tall Grass. Battle the Youngster when you reach him.

Trainer Battle: Youngster

Pokemon Level Type
Sandslash 42 Ground

This doorway is a bit hard to notice unless you look at it from afar.

Continue east and grab the Ultra Ball lying in the grass. Head through the gap in the fence and move over to the man near drum. Move north a little and you’ll notice a doorway in the side of the bridge. Enter to find a girl singing. She’ll notice you, become embarrassed and push you out.

Continue north, underneath the bridge. At the very end of the path you’ll find a Blue Shard . To your east is an island partway across the river. Surf there and grab the Big Pearl from amongst the Tall Grass. Surf back to the western bank and backtrack all the way to the foot of the bridge.

You’re done! Head through the gate to your west.
