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.
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.
As she uses Fighting-type Pokémon, it’s best to have a Psychic or Flying-type on hand. Fortunately, most trainers have caught 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
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.
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.
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.
Some of these items are only unlocked after beating the Gyms and the Pokémon League.
