This is it! The final city with a Pokémon Gym! Are you prepared for the ultimate gym challenge? Or will this one be the one to finally crush your team for good? (Let's hope not.) First, though, let's have a little look around!

Snowbelle City

- Pokémon Center first. The alternate Poke Mart vendor here will sell you all of the unique Poke Balls. Also in here, jammed into his usual corner, is Mr. Bonding and his usual O-Power upgrade.

- There are two houses north of the Pokémon Center. In the left house you'll find a guy who will teach a 'Mythical' move to either Keldeo or Meloetta, both legendary pokémon from the previous generation. You proooobably don't have them at this point. (I certainly don't. Once I discover the move I'll post it here.) Also in here is a girl who will give you TM 08, Bulk Up.

- Slide your way to the top-right area of the city. Here you'll find a house with a woman who will trade you a Bisharp for a Jigglypuff. To the left of this house, beside the bridge, is a snow drift; check it for a hidden Icy Rock.

- Wander south to find another house. Inside is an older man who will teach one of three moves to your starter pokémon, depending on its element. Water-types learn Hydro Cannon; fire-types learn Blast Burn; grass-types learn Frenzy Plant. The starters from any generation can learn these moves, so long as they're at the peak of their evolution.

- Check the tree to the right of the move tutor's house to find an X Sp. Atk.

- Slide down the cliff to the left of the house. Carefully walk south and you'll find a Full Restore. Don't skate, or you'll slide further south before you can get the item.

- Head to the middle of town. Beside the Pokémon Gym is a clothing store. You know what to do.

- Last up, the Pokémon Gym. Hopefully you weren't itching to fight, because the Gym Leader is currently out. Apparently he's in Route 20, the Winding Woods, through the southern exit of the city. Blast! Head there now if you're ready for some exploration... though first, check the alley to the left of the Gym. Hidden in the north wall is a Full Heal.

Route 20 - Winding Woods

- Straight ahead is a field of grass with a mossy rock in the middle. I assume this conspicuous formation is used to evolve grass-type pokemon, but I haven't tested it yet. (Eevee to Leafeon is a good choice.)

- Head west and you'll find a Kasib Berry tree and a Paralyze Heal. Backtrack.

- Head south. Grassy area and not much else.

- To the south you'll find a Meadow Plate. Backtrack.

- Head west. There are trainers in here whom you can fight or skip.

Twins Nana & Nina

Slurpuff, level 53

Aromatisse, level 53

Reward: $1,696

Primarily a fairy-type battle. Bring out something to resist fairy-type moves and you'll have an easy time.

- To the south you'll find a trainer. Check the tree for an Antidote. Backtrack.

Poke Fan Roisin

Snubbull, level 51

Granbull, level 53

Reward: $4,240

Essentially two versions of the same thing. More fairy-type shenanigans.

- Head north. There's a trainer to battle here.

Fairy Tale Girl Wynne

Klefki, level 52

Azumarill, level 52

Reward: $1,664

People really like their fairy-types 'round here. Nothing you've never beaten before.

- East of here is a dead end. To the west is a Cuttable tree; beyond that is a trainer, and past him you'll find a Protein. Check the tree stump in the bottom-left corner of the area for the Repeat Ball. Backtrack after beating the trainer. (Or not.)

Poke Fan Corey

Dedenne, level 54

Reward: $4,320

Pushover. Annihilate the little pest.

- Go south two screens. Now the forest gets a bit tricky. Go one further screen east and check the base of the tree you find for a Mental Herb. Backtrack, then go east again. You'll appear on the opposite side of the screen you were just on. Repeat this process again until you appear on the east side of an area with a blocked-off northern passage. Once you're here, check the dirt spot in the north for a Tiny Mushroom, then go south.

- Beyond is a path leading to stairs. Go up the stairs, check the small bare spot in the grass for a Balm Mushroom, and check to your left for an X Accuracy.

- Beside the stairs you'll find a tree to Cut. It leads to a trainer and TM 53, Energy Ball.

Hex Maniac Desdemona

Trevenant, level 54

Reward: $1,728

Easy enough. You have plenty of weaknesses to play with. Fire's a good, common one.

- When you backtrack you'll be warped around again. Find the area with the path leading north, then go south. You'll be led toooo...

Omission!

For spacing purposes, I'm not going to include Surfing or Fishing pokemon for Pokemon Village. They're pokemon you've seen in maaaaany other areas already. Basculin's the most unique pokemon you'll come across while fishing here.

Pokemon Village

- After a short cut scene, Wulfric will return to the gym. Very good.

- Talk to the Furfrou for a Chople Berry. The Fletchling next to it will give you a Pretty Wing.

- Southwest of the Snorlax is a tire. Check it for a Pretty Wing.

- In the southeast corner is a rise, upon which sits a Max Ether.

- Further southwest is a trash can that wriggles. Inside is a Tiny Mushroom.

- There's a Full Restore in the northwest corner. Go through the small tent to get to it.

- Check inside the shelter for a hidden Honey.

- Surf across the nearby water. Hidden in the cluster of flowers on the opposite bank is a Pixie Plate.

- To the east of the waterfall is a man in front of a cave. This is the Unknown Dungeon. Return here when you beat the Champion and you'll find, ah, a rather unpleasant creature within. (Though powerful!)

- That about wraps it up. Fly back to Snowbelle City and get prepped for your final gym battle.

Return Trip

Pokemon Village

- At the top of the waterfall is another patch of flowers. Wade through them to the south to find TM 29, Psychic.

- Make a return trip to that cave you couldn't access while the Champion stood undefeated. It's no longer blocked... and a Mewtwo is waiting inside. This can be a brutal pokemon to catch if you already used the Master Ball, as it's not only possessed of some horrible moves, it can use Recover to replenish its health. If you want to catch Mewtwo with normal Poke Balls, I highly, highly recommend paralyzing it for the entire battle. (I did it without the Master Ball, so yes, it's possible. Just a bit painful.) After capturing Mewtwo you'll receive Mewtwonite X or Y, depending on your version of the game.

- Don't leave the cave just yet! Check the stalagmite to the left of where Mewtwo was standing to find an Oval Stone.

      A good thing to note: try a Quick Ball at the beginning of the battle. I caught my Mewtwo that way.. first time. Was pretty anti-climactic.

      The wiggling trash can you said had a Tiny Mushroom had a Max Revive for me. Also, I just wanted to say this walkthrough is awesome, and I'm amazed at the speed you got it up while still retaining this level of detail!

      Right in the middle of the tent you pass through to get to the Full Restore by the trash can is a HONEY. (Use dowsing mchn. if unsure where to look.)

      Thanks for your useful walkthrough, helped me a lot.

      and to confirm, my Eevee did evolve into leafeon at the 1st map of route 20 by the rock in the middle and then leveling it. I manage to evolve it using exp share (since my eevee is like lv 20) Haha. :)

      It's probably worth noting that I ran along a Ditto in the Pokemon Village area. Only once, though.
