I'm trying to clear White Treehollow, but in Area 9 none of the hints are helpful. They all said the gate trainer was male, with one other person, walking around and spinning. There were also quite a few that said "I saw him down below earlier" and then when you went down a level, they said "I saw him up above earlier."
Is the trick to look for the opposite of what they say? Instead of male/with another/walking and spinning should I look for female/alone/stationary? I'm lost. I couldn't beat the level as my Pokemon were too worn out from beating probably about 80% of the trainers on that level including every male, never finding the gate trainer.
