Twist Mountain is known as a mine filled with valuable ore. True to its name, it’s quite twisty and rather annoying to explore, requiring you to weave in and out of the mountain. Its layout also drastically changes when it’s Winter or not Winter.

Deal with him and the Champion will catch up with you to give you the HM03 Surf ! This technique lets you use any aquatic Pokémon to surf across rivers and lakes in the world, as well as being one of the best water based attacks in the game.
Note : At this point, you can return to previous areas with water and use Surf to explore those previously inaccessible areas. See our " Optional Surfing Areas " section, just ahead, for all the juicy details!
Continue on up the mountain and you’ll soon encounter…
Trainer Battle: Hiker
Enter the cave… Walk forward to meet up with Cheren and an old acquaintance, enjoy the banter and then continue the way you were going.
Note : The layout of Twist Mountain changes drastically depending on whether it’s Winter or not. During Winter, there is a large snow flow outside, towards the far north, which you can walk on to skip to any floor! Our guide is written for players not in Winter, but can be followed by players in Winter too.
Go right and exit out onto the excavation site. Follow the walk way right and take the exit located at the 6 o’clock position. Follow the path around, either fight the Hiker or avoid him
Trainer Battle: Hiker
Past the Hiker, take the first junction leading north if you fancy a battle with an Ace Trainer; otherwise continue right.

The second junction going up is where you want to go, but you’ll need to get past a Battle Girl.

After heading north, take the exit out onto the excavation walkway. Once outside, you’ll find a Worker directly to your south if you desire a scrap.
