I went through the gates right before arriving at Victory Road. My badges were checked there, although the process itself was long and tedious. I finally arrived at the foot of Victory Road, and I went inside. I battled a wild Deino as soon as I got there and I captured it for my collection. I battled some Durant and Woobat as I moved along, until I spotted a trainer. I won that match easily, but I started finding more trainers. I went back outside through one of the caves, and I had to slide down the cliff in order to access another cave. I kept repeating the pattern until I met some more trainers. I managed to find a doctor-class trainer at one point, and I had him heal my injured Pokemon. I went back outside to capture a wild Heatmor, then I headed inside again. I collected items and battled the last trainers, then I arrived at the Pokemon League. I healed my Pokemon there and saved the game.
