Route 211 - West (Encounters & Items)

Vincent Lau

This is a walkthrough for Route 211 (West), including what Pokémon you can encounter and items you can find.

Route 211 is divided into two halves by Mt. Coronet. You can reach this west section by traveling east from Eterna City.

Entering Mt. Coronet (Briefly)

Should you continue east, you can enter the north section of Mt. Coronet. Right now, you cannot pass through to the other side, since you need HM Strength. But, while you’re inside, you can encounter some wild Pokémon at least.
