Another cave awaits ahead, so bring along sufficient supplies!

Follow the path around and you'll eventually reach a Psychic keen on a battle.

Trainer Battle: Psychic Emanuel

Pokémon Level Type
Solosis 24 Psychic
Sigilyph 24 Psychic/Flying

You can find a Sitrus Berry on the ground near the tree nearby. Pick it up and head up the stairs. Interact with the weird thing by the stairs to receive a Super Potion . From there head south-east and you'll be taken on by the Battle Girl there.

Trainer Battle: Battle Girl Gerardine

Pokémon Level Type
Mienfoo 28 Fighting

Once she's taken down, head up the stairs then head north. As you try to head up the stairs to your north, you'll receive a Holo Clip from Professor Sycamore. He'll let you know where to head in the next town.

From there; don't head up the steps but head west to the tall grass, using Cut on the grass so that you can access the area. Move north through the tall grass. You'll notice that you'll be able to slide down the ramp to the item to your left. Do so and you'll find that it's TM69 - Rock Polish .

Tip #025: Getting More From Holo Clips

As well as the Holo Clips forced onto you during your journey, you can also view Holo Clips from the PSS on the Touch Screen. These additional clips provide you with Poke Miles for each Pokemon X or Y StreetPass tag and occasionally promotional news from Nintendo.

Before the cave entrance, there's a Sky Battle to the south-east.

Jump over the ledge and head back to the stairs that you didn't go up. Go up them this time and head east before getting within sight of the double team. Head south through the tall grass and grab the Hyper Potion that you'll see. You can then head east up the stairs to the end.

There's a Sky Trainer waiting here who you can take on now or later. Either way, use your Dowsing Machine to find the hidden item here; which happens to be another Thunder Stone ! Head back to the stairs and take on the Psychic and Black Belt team there.

Double Battle: Brains & Brawn Frank & Sly

Pokémon Level Type
Mr. Mime 26 Psychic/Fairy
Machoke 28 Fighting

From there, head into the cave in front of you.
