Gym 2

Gym 2

Nacrene City

Nacrene City


An unused rail track passes along the south of the city, adding an air of the past to a city full of repect for times gone by.


Around town
Chesto Berry, Soda Pop, Ultra Ball, Revive, Dowsing Machine (after Gym)
Ace Trainer
Miracle Seed/Charcoal/Mystic Water (depends on your starter)

Points of Interest

  • This Town’s gym doubles up as a museum which is able to ressurect any Fossils you get hold of during your travels.
  • A girl is after trading Pokémon: A Petilil for your Cottonee in Pokémon Black, or a Cottonee for your Petilil in Pokémon White.


Before you’ve even had time to take in the new sights and sounds the somewhat irritating Cheren will escort you to the Pokémon Center and give you a free berry in the process, be sure to give it to a Pokémon to hold.

The next Gym sits to the very north of the city so work your way in that direction. Before entering the gym however, the charming ‘N’ will request another fight of you.

Trainer Battle: N

This trainer has a Fighting type which are strong however weak to Flying and Psychic types.

Pokemon Level Type
Pidove 13 Normal/Flying
Timburr 13 Fighting
Tympole 13 Water

This scrap isn’t too hard, just make sure Timburr doesn’t slam any of your Normal types around, and if you started with him, keep Tepig away from Tympole. Once you’ve dealt with N you’ll be free to enter the gym.
