Leaving Icirrus City

Guide

Head for the north-east corner of Icirrus City and exit out onto Route 8 . For detailed information for this route, rewind back to our Gym 7 section. The short version: keep heading in a easterly direction as soon as you get the chance.

Just outside Tubeline Bridge, Bianca will catch up with you and demand satisfaction.

Trainer Battle: Bianca

You just can't seem to get rid of your rivals, can you?

Pokemon Level Type Note
Stoutland 38 Normal -
Simipour 38 Water Only if you picked Tepig
Simisage 38 Grass Only if you picked Oshawott
Simisear 38 Fire Only if you picked Snivy
Musharna 38 Psychic -
Serperior 40 Grass Only if you picked Tepig
Emboar 40 Fire Only if you picked Oshawott
Samurott 40 Water Only if you picked Snivy

Bianca’s tactics haven’t changed much, she’s simply grown stronger. As always this should be an easy fight for you, with the Psychic ways of Musharna possibly causing problems and her starter presenting a powerful challenge at Level 40.

Deal with her as normal and head onto the bridge.
