Pokémon: Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl

Route 210 - North (Encounters & Items)

Vincent Lau

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

How to Clear the Fog?

As you head further north from where the Psyduck blockade was, a thick fog will cover the area, making it extremely hard to see. If you really want, you could fumble your way through the fog. But it’s probably easier to use the Hidden Move Defog.

If you don’t have Defog, enter the Great Marsh in Pastoria City. After paying for entry, there’s a woman standing nearby to the right, who will give you HM Defog.
