Lake Acuity is the third and final lake (or is it?). (left), In the center of the lake is Acuity Cavern. (right)

Lake Acuity is one of the three lakes in Sinnoh, located west from Snowpoint City. You’ll be unable to enter until you’ve defeat Gym Leader Candice. During your initial visit, you’ll bump into your rival who just lost against a Team Galactic Commander.

She’ll discourage you from heading to Team Galactic’s HQ in Veilstone City. Or perhaps she’s goading you using reverse psychology? Yes, that must be it. Let’s head to their HQ at once!
