Veilstone City (Locations & Items)

Staci Miller

Veilstone City is one of the major cities in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, and home to Gym Leader Maylene.

As well as grabbing your next badge, here’s what you need to do in the city.

Main Story

Travel west towards the Gym and briefly speak to Rowan’s assistant. Once you’ve done this, you can head into the Gym and challenge Gym Leader Maylene.

(1 of 2) Maylene will admit defeat graciously

Maylene will admit defeat graciously (left), You'll get TM60 Drain Punch for your trouble (right)

As she uses Fighting-type Pokémon, it’s best to have a Psychic or Flying-type on hand. Fortunately, most trainers have caught "Starly" IconStarly early in the game and should now have a decently leveled Flying-type Pokémon.

Exit the Gym, and you’ll find Rowan’s assistant in distress as Team Galactic have stolen their Pokédex. Head to the Galactic Warehouse to get it back.

You’ll find two grunts outside of the Warehouse and will have to engage in a double battle with them to retrieve the Pokédex.

Team Galactic Grunts

Since you’ve just beaten Maylene, this fight shouldn’t be too challenging. A well-placed Fire-type or Flying-type move will take out Dustox and "Beautifly" IconBeautifly.

"Croagunk" IconCroagunk and Skunky are a little more difficult and have high Defense, but should be at a lower level than you.

After this battle, you’ll be able to progress onwards in the main story, but there are a few places to go first.


There are a few items you should pick up in Veilstone City.

TM94 Fly

Once you’ve fought the double battle with Team Galactic, head into the Warehouse before moving on. On the right side, you will find TM94 Fly - which you can now use as a Hidden Move to fly to previously-visited locations.

Department Store

One of the major attractions in Veilstone City is the Department Store, which is far larger than your average Poké Mart and has a variety of items on sale.

The Department Store is hard to miss.

Some of these items are only unlocked after beating the Gyms and the Pokémon League.

She can give massages to your Pokémon that will make them warm up to you. This is especially handy for Pokémon that evolve based on their friendship level, such as "Budew" IconBudew into "Roselia" IconRoselia.
