Rival: N

Pokémon Type Level
Pidove Normal/Flying Level 13
Timburr Fighting Level 13
Tympole Water Level 13
Reward Pokebuck.png 1300

This battle is not hard, especially if you have Blitzle. A grass type is also useful, just do not let him go first because Pidove has the advantage. When you defeat him, he will go away talking about a legendary Pokémon. Now you are ready to challenge the gym! But first, know that the Gym Leader uses Normal-type Pokémon. You can use Pignite (if you have), or take a Timburr in Pinwheel Forest which is in the east of the city.

Nacrene Gym[edit]

When you enter, you see a museum, but the gym is in the back! Make sure to bring Pokemon level 16 or more, for the battle will be difficult. Upon entering, you will be greeted by a gentleman who will give you a Fresh Water. Save it for the battle with the leader. Trainers use only the normal type Pokemon, it is recommended to capture a Timburr, Throh or Sawk (if you have not Pignite). Battle the first trainer.

The Gym doubles as a library, and features a scavenger hunt for Trainers to follow in order to reach Lenora. Start by reading through the book Nice to Meet You, Pokémon! on the front-left bookshelf.

Question: "What is the first Pokémon you met in this Gym?" Location of next book: Center-left bookcase.

Question: "Flame burns inside its body, and it gives off smoke from its head while it runs..." Location of next book: Rear-left bookcase.

Now, talk to the scientist and answer yes to your question. You'll get into a battle.

Question: "If you heat it up in a pot, it'll be delicious." Location of Next Book: Front-right bookcase

Question: "From this bookshelf... Move two backward, move one to the left, move two forward, move one to the right, and move one backward... Now, where is it?" Location of Next Book: Behind School Kid Lydia, center-right bookcase.

For the final question, speak to School Kid Lydia. Defeat her, then check the book behind her, The Biology of Tepig.

The book triggers a switch on the shelf, moving the bookcase and revealing a staircase leading to the basement. The Gym Leader waits downstairs.

Gym Leader: Lenora

Pokémon Type Level
Herdier Normal Level 18
Watchog Normal Level 20
Reward Pokebuck.png 2400

Attacks like Double Kick, Low Sweep and Arm Thrust are highly recommended and will make the battle much easier. For defeating her, Lenora gives you the Basic Badge, and TM67 (Retaliate). Having a second badge ensures that Pokémon up to level 30 will always obey you. Hawes rushes in, yelling that Team Plasma has invaded the museum. Follow them to the front of the museum to witness the villains running off with the Dragon Skull. Catch up to Lenora outside, and she'll introduce you to Burgh, the Castelia City Gym Leader. Cheren and Bianca show up to protect the museum, and Bianca gives you the Dowsing MCHN, a gift from Fennel that detects hidden items. Now you are ready for the challenges of Pinwheel Forest!
