After I defeated Gym Leader Candice at the Snowpoint City Gym, I received the Icicle Badge and Avalanche TM from her and I slid towards the Gym's exit. I quickly visited the Snowpoint City Pokemon Center afterwards and I wandered west towards Acuity Lakefront again. I arrived at Lake Acuity and I saw Barry and Jupiter from Team Galactic. Jupiter left since she had acquired Uxie and Barry left as well. I Surfed across Lake Acuity and got the Blizzard TM in a patch of snow. I returned to Route 216 next and used Rock Climb and I battled trainers on the snowy mountain area and got the Ice Beam TM as well. Afterwards, I used Rock Climb at other areas and picked up items and I flew back to Veilstone City.

After leaving the Distortion World through the portal, Cynthia and I ended up in the Sendoff Spring. Cynthia talked to me about some things for a while and told me to go visit Prof. Rowan because he'd been worrying about me. Before I did that, though, I used Rock Climb and looked around the rest of the Sendoff Spring area, then rode my bike down Spring Path. I then flew back to Twinleaf Town and went inside my house, where I had my mom heal my badly weakened team.
Once my team was recovered, I walked over to Sandgem Town and went inside the lab. Lucas and Prof. Rowan were waiting right inside for me and talked to me about everything I did for Sinnoh. Rowan then mentioned that I should go get the badge from the Gym in Sunyshore, since that was the only badge I don't have yet. So then, I returned to Pastoria and went out to the Valor Lakefront again. The guy who was blocking my way earlier because of the Sunyshore blackout was gone, so I was finally able to step out onto Route 222. I saved my game there.
20th October 2014, 6:00 AM
I got the Storage Key in Veilstone City next and wandered over to the Galactic Warehouse again. I unlocked a door and picked up a Dusk Stone nearby and then I walked around and I battled several Team Galactic grunts. I eventually found the Galactic Key and the Sludge Bomb TM which I taught to my Roserade and then I explored Team Galactic HQ in detail. I warped around via panels, climbed stairs and battled several more Team Galactic grunts and even a Scientist. I healed my team on a bed after several battles, then I climbed up to another floor of Galactic HQ and warped and I soon arrived where Team Galactic's boss Cyrus was. After talking to him and learning about his evil schemes, we battled each other.
21st October 2014, 6:10 AM
I made my way across Route 222. First, I took the upper path and took care of the trainers there. Then, I walked along the beach part for some more battles plus a couple of houses. In one house, this guy wanted me to show him a large Remoraid, but I didn't have one so I couldn't do that. The house next door was called the Pikachu Fan Club and contained a guy living with his team of Pikachu, which was, uh, interesting I guess.
When I was done with that route, I entered a gate that lead me into Sunyshore City. As soon as I entered the city, I met
ronald mcdonald himself Flint from the Elite Four. He told me about how his bff Volkner was really bored lately because all the trainers who come to the Gym are terrible, and said that he wanted me to show Volkner and exciting battle. First, though, I went to the Pokemon Center to heal.
21st October 2014, 6:46 AM
I battled Cyrus at the Team Galactic HQ building and I defeated his Murkrow with my Floatzel's Ice Beam and then I battled against Cyrus's Sneasel. Infernape's Flamethrower was enough to clobber it, then I used my Luxray's Thunderbolt attack to slay Cyrus's Golbat last. Cyrus handed me a Master Ball after his defeat and he left to Mt. Coronet after ranting about his plans. I healed my team again on a bed and then I warped to the lab part of the Galactic HQ to save Mesprit, Uxie and Azelf. I arrived at the holding chamber where the lake guardians were kept and I battled Commander Saturn again. I beat Saturn's Kadabra and Bronzor with Staraptor's Aerial Ace attacks and his Toxicroak with my Floatzel's Surf attack.
21st October 2014, 8:23 AM
Once I was done healing my team, I went to look around Sunyshore City and saw quite a few interesting places. While exploring the lower level of the city, I went inside a market where PokeBall seals were being sold. I didn't want any, though, so I left without buying anything. Then, on the beach I met and talked to Jasmine from the Johto region. After that, I walked up onto the raised solar panel walkways and began looking around. Up there, I saw a rock in the water that looked like a Munchlax. I also went inside a house where I found out that Cyrus was from this city.
Soon after all that, I found the Sunyshore Gym. The entrance to it was being blocked by Flint, who told me that Volkner wasn't inside at the moment. So, I decided to head over to the Vista Lighthouse instead. I took the elevator to the lookout station, where I found Volkner moping around. He agreed to battle me at the Gym after I talked to him and left. I then headed over to the Gym as well and saved once I entered.
21st October 2014, 6:50 PM
After I defeated Commander Saturn at the Team Galactic HQ, I released Mesprit, Uxie and Azelf and Saturn mentioned the Red Chain. I escaped the laboratory afterwards and I left the Galactic HQ building and healed my team at the Veilstone City Pokemon Center. I flew back to Oreburgh City next and I went to Route 207 and entered Mt. Coronet from the east. I climbed a ledge using Rock Climb and I caught a wild Bronzong in a new cavern. I kept climbing and I soon arrived at a snowy area near Mt. Coronet's summit. I walked through snow and caught a wild Abomasnow in the tall grass, then I picked up various items and re-entered Mt. Coronet. I battled several Team Galactic grunts inside and then I saved my game.
22nd October 2014, 2:26 AM
Worked on completing the Sunyshore Gym today. I started by focusing on defeating all the regular trainers in the Gym first, which wasn't too hard. Once they were all defeated, I left to heal my Pokemon and then came back. To get to the Gym Leader, I had to step on these switches that would rotate some gears and change the direction various bridges were facing. This puzzle was pretty familiar to me, but I did make a few stupid mistakes like stepping on a switch too many times.
I soon made it to Volkner and started my final Gym battle. My Garchomp made this battle a piece of cake. Volkner's lead was a Jolteon who wasn't a threat to me at all, so I was able to get up a Swords Dance on the first turn. I was then able to just OHKO all of Volkner's Pokemon using Earthquake. For winning, I received my final Sinnoh badge, the Beacon Badge.
22nd October 2014, 3:20 AM
After slaying a few Team Galactic grunts in Mt. Coronet's cavern's interior, I walked back out to the snow and used Rock Climb and then I entered another cavern nearby. I caught a wild Chimecho as I climbed further and after beating one last Galactic grunt, I arrived at Spear Pillar. I beat two more Team Galactic grunts upon arrival and I saw Mars and Jupiter as I walked ahead. Cyrus finally summoned Dialga as I approached and after a cut-scene, my friend Barry appeared and we battled the two Commanders. It was a hard battle and I struggled against Mars's Purugly, but Barry and I won eventually and I had to deal with Cyrus. Mesprit, Uxie and Azelf appeared and stopped Dialga, then Cyrus's plan was ruined.
22nd October 2014, 9:57 PM
After finishing with the Sunyshore Gym, I went outside again and returned to the beach area. Once there, my rival ran up to me to talk to me about a few things before running off again. I then spoke with Jasmine and received the Waterfall HM from her, which I immediately taught to my Bibarel HM slave. Then, I used Surf on the nearby ocean and headed out onto Route 223. I Surfed along the route for quite a while, crushing the dreams of Swimmers aiming for the Pokemon League along the way (my favourite thing to do! :P)
Anyway, I eventually reached a large Waterfall. I climbed up it and then headed inside a nearby Pokemon Center.

After Cyrus's plan of creating a new universe using Dialga's power flopped due to the lake guardians, he challenged me to a battle. He used his Honchkrow and I defeated it with my Floatzel's Ice Beam attack, which was very effective. Cyrus sent out his Gyarados afterwards and my Luxray's Thunderbolt was enough to make Gyarados faint instantly. Cyrus then used Weavile, which my Infernape beat quickly with Close Combat. All that remained on Cyrus's team was a Crobat, which my Luxray crushed with Thunderbolt. Cyrus lost the battle and he and Mars and Jupiter left Spear Pillar. I spoke with Professor Rowan afterwards and I battled Dialga next and captured it using a single Ultra Ball and that crisis was averted.

In the Pokemon Center I entered, I healed my Pokemon and talked to a few people who told me about Victory Road. I then exited the building and entered Victory Road, which was located right next door. I made my way through the cave thoroughly by making sure I visited every room and fought every trainer I saw. Getting through Victory Road wasn't that difficult overall, though doing all the trainer battles did take quite a bit of time.
Once I made it to the end of the cave, I took the exit and then climbed a very tall waterfall. The Pokemon League castle was in front of me, so I went inside and healed again. Then, I walked towards the center aisle of the room and my rival popped in for a battle. I defeated his Staraptor, Roserade, and Heracross easily using my Starmie. Then, I switched to Garchomp and used my Earthquake attack to take down my rival's Rapidash, Snorlax, and Empoleon.
Yesterday, 12:14 AM
After successfully catching Dialga at Spear Pillar, I spoke to Professor Rowan again as well as Dawn and I picked up the Adamant Orb before leaving the area. After exiting Mt. Coronet at long last, I flew to Celestic Town and spoke to Cynthia's grandmother and saw a picture of Palkia. I then picked up my Riolu from Solaceon Town's Day Care next and added him to my team and trained him for about an hour and evolved him into Lucario. After that training was done, I flew back to Twinleaf Town and visited Lake Verity. At Verity’s cavern, I saw Mesprit and it flew away before I could battle it. Rowan spoke to me after that and then I went back to Hotel Grand Lake and finally accessed Route 222. I saved the game there.
After defeating my rival at the Pokemon League, I decided to leave and do a bit more training before taking on the Elite Four. I wanted to get my three main Pokemon all to level 60, so I had to train my Starmie and Garchomp some more because they were only level 59 and 58 respectively. Anyway, I ended up going to the Fuego Ironworks near Floaroma Town for some training since I'd forgotten to go to that place earlier in my adventure. Inside that place, I battled several trainers while using these spin tiles to get around. I picked up a few items, too, before leaving.
Next, I still had to train Garchomp a bit, so I flew back to Sunyshore and went out to Route 222. I used my VS Seeker to get into several trainer rematches until Garchomp grew to level 60 like my Starmie and Drapion. Then, I flew back to the Pokemon League building and purchased some more healing items inside. I had my badges checked after that and will start challenging the Elite Four later.
Upon arrival at Route 222, I walked into the nearby tall grass and I caught a wild Chatot for my collection and I battled a Rich Boy trainer nearby as well. I headed towards the shoreline afterwards and I battled a few Fisherman as well along the sand. I fished with my Good Rod and caught a Remoraid, then I entered a nearby shack and battled a Poke Kid. I backtracked and headed east some more and I collected a few items including the Fling TM. Afterwards, I left Route 222 and arrived at the gatehouse that led into Sunyshore City. I met Flint of the Sinnoh Elite Four and he spoke to me about Gym Leader Volkner. I healed my team and then after shopping for items at the Poke Mart, I visited Vista Lighthouse.
Began my Elite Four challenge. I entered the door by the person who checked for my badges and ended up in Aaron's room. After talking to him, a battle started and he sent out his Yanmega against my Garchomp. I had my Garchomp start with Swords Dance, while Yanmega opened with a Double Team. That had me worried for a sec since I didn't want to miss 8 million times in a row, but fortunately Garchomp's Fire Fang hit and Yanmega fainted. I kept Garchomp in against Aaron's next three Pokemon and defeated Drapion with Earthquake and Heracross & Vespiquen with Fire Fang.
Aaron's final Pokemon was Scizor and I decided to try out Starmie against it to give Garchomp a break. Starmie used Surf, but Scizor hung on and OHKOed Starmie with X-Scissor! Wow, good job Starmie...
I sent in my Drapion after Starmie's epic fail and boosted with Swords Dance while Aaron healed Scizor. I then killed it with Earthquake and won the battle.
I healed my Pokemon and moved onto the next room. My next opponent was Bertha, who sent out Whiscash to start the battle. I lead with Starmie in hopes that it would redeem itself and fired off an Ice Beam to chip down Whiscash's HP a bit. Surf finished it off and then Gliscor came out. Ice Beam took care of it, and then Starmie was able to Surf the rest of Bertha's team. So, Starmie made up for failing in the first fight. Sort of.
After that battle, I walked into Flint's room. I saved there and will continue battling the E4 later, but I think I'll recharge my 3DS a bit first.
I entered Vista Lighthouse in Sunyshore City and after taking the elevator up to the top, I saw Gym Leader Volkner moping around there. I spoke to him and he returned to the Sunyshore City Gym and after seeing the Pokemon League via the binoculars, I left Vista Lighthouse as well. I visited several houses around the city next after walking on the solar panel paths and I purchased various Seals for my Ball Capsules at the Sunyshore Market. I saw Jasmine at the northern shore of the city and I wandered over to the local Gym after that. I spoke to Flint outside and once inside the Sunyshore Gym, I started navigating around and battling Gym trainers and their Electric-types while rotating gears and bridges.
I continued my Pokemon League challenge by battling Flint next. My Starmie was still at the front of my party and I used its Surf to take out Flint's Houndoom and Rapidash. I switched over to Drapion as Infernape came out and tried using Earthquake on it. Infernape survived and hit me with an Earthquake back, so on the Full Restore turn I had to set up a Swords Dance. With my Attacked raised, I was then able to Earthquake the rest of Flint's team and win.
In the next room, I challenged the final Elite Four member, Lucian, to a battle. I had switched Drapion to the front and used Swords Dance on the first turn, then again on the second since Lucian's Mr. Mime set up Reflect. Mr. Mime and Espeon easily fell to Drapion's Crunch attack, though Bronzong took two hits because of the Reflect. I then switched to my Cross Poison move to deal with Alakazam and Gallade because why not.
With all the Elite Four members now defeated, I moved into the hallway connecting to the Champion's room. I will do the final battle next.
I continued moving throughout the Sunyshore City Gym while crushing Gym trainers and solving the Gym puzzle, which was proving to be tedious work in general. After pressing more buttons and shifting the gears around one last time, I arrived at Gym Leader
Minato's Volkner's location and we battled at long last. I used my Lucario against Volkner's Raichu first and I defeated it was a couple of Aura Sphere attacks. I then used my Roserade's Petal Dance against Volkner's Octillery and it fainted right away without putting up a fight. I faced off against Ambipom next and I beat that with Lucario's Aura Sphere, then my Infernape beat Volkner's Luxray. I won the Beacon Badge and Charge Beam TM from Volkner afterwards.
I entered the final room of the Pokemon League, where I had to battle Sinnoh's Champion, Cynthia. She sent out her Spiritomb first while I used my Garchomp. I survived a Shadow Ball and a Dark Pulse from Spiritomb while I set up two Swords Dances. I used a Hyper Potion to recover my HP on the third turn and then KOed Spiritomb with Dragon Claw on the fourth. Cynthia's Milotic, Garchomp, and Togekiss also fell to my Dragon Claw on the next several turns. My Garchomp then defeated Lucario with Earthquake and used Fire Fang on Roserade to finish the battle.
After defeating Cynthia, the two of us started heading to the Hall of Fame room. Prof. Rowan showed up, too, and then my Pokemon and I were recorded in the Hall of Fame. The credits were then shown after that.
After snatching the final Sinnoh Gym Badge from Volkner, I walked out of the Sunyshore Gym. I healed my Pokemon at the local Pokemon Center next after the Gym battle and I rode my Bicycle north and spoke to Jasmine again. She handed me the Waterfall HM, which I taught to my Floatzel next. I Surfed in the sea and caught a wild Mantyke next, then I arrived at Route 223. I Surfed along towards the Pokemon League and I battled several Swimmers and I caught a wild Tentacruel. I arrived on some small islands and I picked up the Rain Dance TM on one of them, then I Surfed some more and after training for 30 minutes, I arrived at a waterfall. Floatzel climbed it and I healed at the PC by Victory Road's entrance.
Yesterday, 11:43 PM
When the game resumed after the credits, I was back in my room in Twinleaf Town. I headed downstairs and heard from my mom that my rival had come by earlier, going on about some boat in Snowpoint City. So, I flew to Snowpoint and started walking towards the ferry near the entrance of the town. Before I got on, though, Cynthia popped up out of nowhere to tell me a few things I didn't really care about. Anyway, I then sailed over to the Fight Area.
As soon as I landed in the Fight Area, my rival dragged me over to the Battle Frontier's entrance. We saw that the entrance was being blocked by Flint and Volkner, and my rival tried to drag me into a battle with them. But I told him NO! at first since I wanted to look around the area first and talk to the people around. Once I was finished with that, my rival and I teamed up and battled Flint & Volkner in a double/multi battle.
My rival was actually useful to me in this battle. He lead with his Staraptor, which allowed my Garchomp to just Earthquake spam our opponents to death without having to waste time watching my rival's Pokemon get killed. After the battle, Volkner, Flint, and many of the people who watched our battle left. Then, this blond haired guy burst out of the Frontier entrance. My rival exclaimed that it was his dad, Palmer, one of the Frontier Brains who my rival wants to be as cool as.
good luck with that
There was also this guy named Buck who came up to talk to me, but I didn't pay much heed to him at the moment. I went inside the Frontier after that and had my Vs Recorder upgraded. Don't plan on doing any battling at the Frontier, though, since what I need to do next is finish seeing all the Pokemon in the Sinnoh dex.
After I healed my Pokemon at the Pokemon Center at the Pokemon League's southern end, I finally entered Victory Road’s cave. I crossed a bridge and backtracked afterwards and used Rock Climb. After battling a Psychic, I found the Torment TM and I continued battling trainers and wild Pokemon. I went down some steps next and I pushed boulders with Luxray's Strength and I battled a couple of Ace Trainers. I backtracked a bit and picked up some items, then I roamed around and I arrived at another cavern with several lakes and waterfalls. I Surfed and battled another Psychic and picked up the Dragon Pulse TM after using Waterfall, then I walked back out via some stairs and I slayed several more trainers.
