This route, situated by a sharp cliff, is the site of the Poke Transfer Lab. Apparently, due to the experiments here, Pokemon from other regions have managed to sneak into Unova… Which is excellent for any Pokemon trainer, really.

Points of Interest
- A scientist in a trailer by the western gatehouse wants to trade her Rotom for your Ditto. Remember you can change Rotom’s form in Shopping Mall Nine!
- The Poke Transfer Lab in the middle of this route allows you to bring Pokemon from a previous Pokemon DS game to Black/White.
There are two ways to proceed here. You can take the higher route, by going up the stairs and using the bridges; doing so will take you near the Poke Transfer Lab and allow you to avoid many battles.
You may have used the Relocator before, possibly… or not… but the Poke Transfer Lab lets you transfer any Pokemon from Diamond, Pearl, HeartGold, SoulSilver or Platinum into Black/White. Essential for filling your National Dex.
Alternatively you can go down the stairs, to the lower route, which is full of grass and trainer battles. We recommend taking both routes, because why not?
We already warned you earlier, but the Pokemon (both wild and trainer-owned) in postgame areas are much higher Level than previous ones you’ve encountered. Look at it this way: Ghetsis’s Hydreigon was Level 54 and the lowest trainer Pokemon here are Level 62…
This trend continues for the entirety of the postgame, so get used to laying down super-effective hits and constantly healing your Pokemon party between battles. Due to the way experience scaling works, your Pokemon will gain a lot of experience for each win–more if they have the Lucky Egg.
Note that there are a couple of minor boulder puzzles in the lower route, so a Pokemon with Strength will come in handy. Just think about where the boulder needs to go and how to move it there and you should do OK. If the boulder gets stuck, just leave the area to reset its position.
