Gym 4

Relic Castle

Relic Castle


This ancient ruin is a maze of pitfalls and promises. Created, presumably, as a testament to the power of the Legendary Pokemon key to the game’s story, the castle has since fallen into disrepair and is now full of sand and angry wild Pokemon.

Pokemon Encounters

Name Type Location Encounter Rate
Sandile Ground/Dark 1F-B1F 50%
Yamask Ghost 1F-B1F 50%


Cover/Plume Fossil (only one), Revive, Elixir


For now, only floors 1F and B1F can be explored, so there’s not much to see or do.

You may notice areas of quicksand on the first floor–these can be crossed safely if you walk , but if you run you’ll be sucked down to the lower floor, B1F. There are also two Psychic-type trainers itching for a battle.

Like they taught you in school: Walk! Not run!

Trainer Battle: Psychic

Pokemon Level Type
Sigilyph 24 Psychic/Flying

Trainer Battle: Psychic

Pokemon Level Type
Woobat 23 Psychic/Flying
Munna 23 Psychic

Cross the quicksand safely and you’ll find a researcher at the end, who will offer you one of two fossils. These can be taken back to Nacrene City’s gym to be reanimated, Jurrasic Park-style. The Cover Fossil will give rise to Tirtouga, a Water/Rock Pokemon, while the Plume Fossil yields the Rock/Flying Archen.
