  • The caravan here houses a maid searching for gourmet ingredients who will buy them off you for a nominal fee.


Head back to the main part of Nimbasa City, where the Pokémon Center and Musical Theater are, and take the north west exit to find Route 5.

Meander out onto the road and before long Cheren will catch up and demand a battle. Honestly, what did these children do before they had Pokémon to fight?

Trainer Battle: Cheren

Cheren is back with stronger Pokemon. He just doesnt give up.

Pokemon Level Type Note
Liepard 24 Dark -
Tranquill 24 Normal/Flying -

Cheren hasn’t changed much since your previous fight. Just use the correct counters for the correct Pokémon as you have before and shut him up again. After the battle you’ll be taken to meet a group of travelers of which the reigning Pokémon champ is one! He’ll have a chat with Cheren and ask you to fight…
