This is the last route between you and Stark Mountain. Even the wild Pokémon here will give you a hard time if your Pokémon aren't at least level 60 or higher. This is a great place to level up before you go to Stark Mountain if you feel that you're not tough enough.

Wild Pokémon[edit]

Note: the fully evolved Pokémon (i.e. Rhydon, Weezing) are levels 54-56. However, the first form Pokémon (i.e. Gligar, Poliwag) are levels 20-23.

since he is immune to Electric moves like Thunderwave, he is hard to inflict with a status condition. You will risk a Grass Type Pokémon as Camerupt knows Fire moves. Your best bet is to either catch one at night with Dusk Balls, or use a Quick Ball at the very start of the battle and hope for the best.

Same as Camerupt, except he doesn't know any Fire Type moves. You won't risk a Grass Pokémon against him, though, so Stun Spore or Sleep Powder and an Ultra Ball are your best bet. Dusk Balls are always a good choice at night

Since Weezing will almost always use Explosion as his first move, you will probably have to either put him to sleep and throw balls at him or use a Quick Ball and hope for the best

Banette is easy to catch, but Ground-type moves aren't recommended.
