Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 walkthrough, Part Thirteen: Route 4

Updated on June 19, 2013

You've trounced three gyms. You've beaten back Team Plasma. You've taken on your rival, Hugh, a few times. You've eve managed to beat some weirdo named Colress. Time to move on to greener pastures - namely, Route 4.

Which... isn't green at all. In fact, it's smack-dab in the middle of a desert.

Be warned! Route 4 is drastically different between Black 2 and White 2. In Black 2, a bustling community has emerged and enshrouded the former desert. In White 2, however, the desert remains - it's just a big dig site. What you'll find and who you'll fight depends on your version of the game. This walkthrough will proceed with the assumption that you're playing Black 2.

When you emerge into the street you'll immediately be challenged by a breeder. She will charge at you any time you come through here, so use her for quick experience.

Breeder Irene

  • Drillbur, level 16
  • Marill, level 16

Reward: 512 Pokedollars

Head north if you want to get through this area quickly. If, however, you want some pokémon, go through the western paths in the houses to reach deep sand, the desert equivalent of tall grass elsewhere in the game. Immediately after you come out you'll face a trainer.

Policeman Braven

  • Growlithe, level 16
  • Herdier, level 16

Reward: 640 Pokedollars

Continue west and down to the beach. You'll find a Mystic Water tucked against a wall, as well as two trainers.

Fisherman Hubert

  • Basculin, level 17

Reward: 544 Pokedollars

Fisherman Andrew

  • Psyduck, level 16
  • Basculin, level 16

Reward: 512 Pokedollars

Head back to the road and go north. Check the first house on your right for people who will give items if you have pokémon with high enough stats (unlikely to have anything this early, though). The next house to the north has a girl who will trade a Petilil for a Cottonee, if you managed to snag one from Castelia Park, as well as a Wide Lens on the second floor. Head back out and visit the house on the left of the street further north; the man on the second floor will give you Sitrus Berries. In the last house on the right, before the bridge, the woman on the ground floor will give you a Poke Toy if you can correctly guess which of your pokémon she's mimicking.

To your north is Nimbasa City, your next major destination. There's more to see here, though, so when the path splits, head west. The trainer patrolling the area will challenge you if he sees you.

Policeman Dell

  • Riolu, level 21
  • Growlithe, level 21

Reward: 840 Pokedollars

Carry past him and down into the sand pit. Go south to the next set of stairs, then up onto the small ledge. At the end is a hidden Red Shard. Backtrack south, then challenge the trainer in the sand.

Policeman Neagle

  • Herdier, level 22

Reward: 880 Pokedollars

In the sand just south of the policeman is a hidden Hyper Potion; use the Dowsing Machine to track it down.To the south and east is a sandy path up to an item, TM28 Dig. Grab it and backtrack, then go west. You'll be in a small area with four trainers.

Roughneck Joey

  • Venipede, level 21
  • Sandile, level 21

Reward: 1009 Pokedollars

Roughneck Silvester

  • Darumaka, level 22

Reward: 528 Pokedollars

Youngster Sinclair

  • Pidove, level 22

Reward: 352 Pokedollars

Biker Stanley

  • Zubat, level 21
  • Petilil, level 21

Reward: 672 Pokedollars

Take them all out, then snag the Stardust and Grip Claw in the vicinity. Then, starting from the tips of the wooden boards to your right, walk four steps out into the deep sand and check the ground for a Yellow Shard. Further into the sand, in the smaller section, you'll find a Stardust. Use your Dowsing Machine to pinpoint the locations.

Important note: If you come to this spot on a Thursday, you'll find a Mandibuzz loitering in the sand. Pokémon White 2 has a comparable sighting with a Braviary on Mondays.

Further south you'll run into two more trainers.

Hooligans Rob & Sal

  • Cottonee, level 21
  • Petilil, level 21

Reward: 1344 Pokedollars

After beating them, head into the deep sand to the west of them. There's a Green Shard buried in the sand one space away from the barricades.

Return to the road. At the western end you'll find a small house where you can rest your pokémon. Leave it and head north and, voila, you're in a new area - the Desert Resort. Visiting this place isn't compulsory, but it will strengthen your pokémon for the gym battle to come.
