Route 210 - South (Encounters & Items)

Vincent Lau

This is a walkthrough for Route 210 (South), including what Pokémon you can encounter and items you can find.

How to Get Past the Psyduck Barricade

Halfway along the route, there’s a group of "Psyduck" IconPsyduck blocking the way near the Café Cabin. To remove the "Psyduck" IconPsyduck, you must use the Secret Medicine from Cynthia at Valor Lakefront.

To make Cynthia appear, you must obtain 4 Gym Badges and speak to the suspicious Galactic Grunt located in Pastoria City, near the Great Marsh entrance. When the Grunt runs away, chase him until he reaches Valor Lakefront (he will stop to rest every now and then).
