Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 walkthrough, Part Thirty-One: Mistralton Gym

Whether you went there immediately or decided to explore first, you will eventually have to check out Mistralton Gym, home of Unova's finest flying-type pokémon trainers. Chargestone Cave is a great place to pick up some anti-flying pokémon, so if you're lacking a solid electric-type pokémon or attack (or possibly a rock- or ice-type) consider checking out Chargestone one more time.

A hangar on the outside, the current incarnation of Mistralton Gym is more like a giant wind machine when you step inside. A powerful breeze will knock Clyde into you, forcing you to take a Fresh Water, and it will haunt you the rest of the way. How fun. The wind picks up every five seconds or so; you'll have to be pressed up against a wall, or in hiding, to avoid being swept out of your way.

Run out from behind the cover at the entrance and head east. Get behind the small barrier here and wait out the wind, then run around the front and take on the trainer.

Pilot Flynn

  • Swoobat, level 37

Reward: 2220 Pokedollars

Step to the pilot's right and wait for the wind to pick up. As soon as it dies down, sprint north and take shelter. move to the left, wait for the wind to gust and die down, then rush south and west into another enclosure. Do this again to reach the west end of the room. Just below you is a trainer. Don't worry about being careful - the wall behind you will keep you safe.

Pilot Winslow

  • Sigilyph, level 37

Reward: 2220 Pokedollars

Once you've beaten the trainer, wait for strong wind, then run north. You should have just enough time to hit an enclosure. The next trainer is to the north; aim carefully so you aren't blown back.

Pilot Elron

  • Archen, level 36
  • Unfezant, level 36

Reward: 2160 Pokedollars

The next series of walkways looks precarious, but you can get through them swiftly and safely enough so long as you keep running. Don't try to walk! You'll never make it to the next trainer!

Pilot Ewing

  • Unfezant, level 37

Reward: 2220 Pokedollars

Head east to find another small enclosure. Just to the north of it is the last gym trainer. You may not notice it at first, but there's a small ledge beside him that will allow you to face him. Get him over with now.

Pilot Chase

  • Ducklett, level 36
  • Swoobat, level 36

Reward: 2160 Pokedollars

After beating this pilot you face a series of thin paths leading back east. One connects to the far path to the gym leader; the other two don't. Realistically, however, it makes no difference which you go down, so long as you get to the end of them. You'll be swept into a wall and have access to the final road anyway. Once the wind has died down, dash forward to face off against Skyla.

Leader Skyla

  • Swoobat, level 37
  • Skarmory, level 37
  • Swanna, level 39

Reward: 4680 Pokedollars

Skyla's pokémon can be surprisingly troublesome thanks to Swoobat's annoying Attract. Try to either deploy male pokémon to take it on, or bring it down in one hit. Beyond that, the same rules for beating the other trainers in this gym apply: use their weaknesses. Skarmory is more defensive than offensive, and Swanna is brought low very easily by electric-type attacks. Ice-type attacks are surprisingly ineffective in this fight, save against Swoobat, so expect a prolonged fight if you've been relying on a deep chill for the rest of this gym.

Beating Skyla will earn you the Jet Badge. You'll also gain TM62 Acrobatics, a handy move if you're not worried about your pokémon holding anything. After you've received your winnings, Skyla will wonder about Professor Juniper's absence; go outside and the professor will reveal that she's headed to Lentimas Town, via Skyla's delivery service. Head to the airport and talk to Skyla again to head to a new region via plane -

- and, of course, Bianca runs up at the last minute to hitch a ride.
