Canalave City is where you”ll battle Rival and obtain yoursixth badge. First, go into the first house you see, and talk to the girl near the door for TM48 – Skill Swap. The Move Deleterlives in the house across from the Pokemon Mart. He can delete moves you no longer want from your Pokemon; his service is needed to removeany unwanted HMs that you”ve taught your Pokemon. Before you head across the bridge to get to the west side of Canalave City, be sureto heal your Pokemon at the Pokemon Center, for Rival awaits you on the bridge.

Rival”s Pokemon are all around lv. 30. He even has a new Heracross. After defeating him, as you always do, continue west and go into the Gym.
Fists of Steel
The Canalave Gym supposedly specializes in Steel-type Pokemon, but also uses a lot of Rock-type Pokemon. A Fire/Fighting Pokemon will melt through this Gym without breaking a sweat. However, you might break a sweat trying to get to the gym leader, who can be reached only after getting through the elevator puzzle of this Gym (actually, thisis very simple after locating which elevator to take first). Start off by taking the right-most elevator. Follow the path to go down the only available elevator, fight the trainer, and take the only available elevator up. Go across by going left and take the only available elevator. Go across north, fight the trainer, and go right all the way. Go south on the narrow aisle, and go back north. Continue to the only available elevator. Fight the trainer, and go down the only available elevator. The red-bordered elevator will take you tothe Gym Leader.
Byron, the Gym Leader (also the father of Roark, gym leader of Oreburgh Gym), uses dual-type Pokemon that are half Steel and half something else. His three Pokemon are: a lv. 36 Bonzor, a lv. 36 Steelix, and a lv. 39 Bastiodon. For defeating him, Byron will award you with theMine Badge, which allows your Pokemon to use Strength outside of battle. He”ll also give you TM91 – Flash Cannon. Once you leave thegym, Rival will meet you outside and ask you to go to the Library with him.
The Canalave Library is located north of the Gym. Go to the third floor, where you”ll find Professor Rowan, Dawn, and Rival. The Professor willtalk to the three of you about three legendary Pokemon in three of the lakes in Sinnoh. He and Dawn plan on visiting Lake Verity. He asks Rival to explore Lake Acuity and you to explore Lake Valor. As if there”s an earthquake, the building shakes and you heara loud explosion. The others will rush out the building to see what happened. Follow them outside. A Sailor comes over and notifies the four ofyou that the tremor was the result of an explosion at Lake Valor. Rival rushes off and so should you! Time to check out what happened atLake Valor!
Valor Lakefront (the area around Lake Valor) is situatedbetween Veilstone City and Pastoria City, so you can fly to either city to get to the lake. You might remember that you”ve actuallygone past the entrance, which was previously blocked by two men. Now that these men are gone, you can explore inside.
Inside, you”ll find an empty lake bottom filled with splashing Magikarp and a few Galactic Grunts standing around. Fight two of them if you wish to andenter the cave at the center of the lake. Inside, Commander Saturn, a Team Galactic boss, will battle you. After the battle, Commander Saturn willretreat from Lake Valor, telling you that Commander Mars is at Lake Verity. Now, fly over to Twinleaf Town to get to the otherlake.
From Twinleaf Town, go north-west to get to Lake Verity.Professor Rowan will talk to you once you enter the lake, asking you to help out Dawn.You”ll find her facing off with Commander Mars, whom you will battle again (you had battled her once before). After defeating her, she”ll give you some details on what Team Galactic did, which is that they captured the three legendary Pokemon Mesprit, Azelf, and Uxie. Now you need to visit Lake Acuity, located at the very north of Sinnoh. To get there, you”ll need to go through Mt. Coronet. Fly over to Eterna City and head east to Mt. Coronet.
Inside Mr. Coronet, first use Strength to push the boulder to obtainTM69 – Rock Polish. Go east, then north, and push the boulder north to get it out of your way. Smash the rocks on the left for a Rare Candy. Continue north-west and go down the entrance. Now, you”ll need to use Defog to get rid of the thick fog. Smash the first rock you see for a Stardust. Surf a bit east on the water for a Light Clay on the small piece of land. Go back onto land,go down the second set of steps, and go north for a Soft Sand. Keep on going and go east, down the next set of steps. Surf east or smashthe rock for a Max Elixir. Push away the first boulder you see for a Revive. Go south-east for a Full Restore. Now, go backto where you were before going down the steps, and continue north until you exit the mountain onto Route 216. Note that right before youexit, you”ll see two boulders; there is a HP Up between them.
Surprisingly, it”s snowing on the other side of the mountain on Route 216.It”s quite beautiful, but on some areas, you sink into the deep snow, making it difficult for you to walk around. Take the steps, go across thebridge, and pick up the Ice Heal on the north end. Follow the bridges all the way west for a nice detour from the deep snow you would go throughotherwise. Keep going west, and you”ll see a Snowbound Lounge, where you can heal your Pokemon by sleeping in the bed. Go north from thereand you”ll reach Route 217.
The snow here gets really, really heavy. The snow at some areas will sink you up to the neck, slowly you down further. You can typically speedup if you walk for a bit and stop walking. Route 27 is quite wide, making it even more difficult to explore this route. You”ll find a half-covered Iron in the center of the road. North-west of that, you”ll find a house and TM07 – Hail laying outside. Behind that house, you”ll find the very important HM08 – Rock Climb. After getting that, talk to the Hiker in the house for an Icicle Plate. On the north-east side, there”s a house in which the girl inside will give you a Spell Tag. Don”t continue north from here.Instead, go west, and then head all the way north.
The snow has finally calmed down on Acuity Lakefront. You”ll see two Galactic Grunts blocking the entrance to Lake Acuity; so,come back here later. Go to the very north to pick up an Ultra Ball. Then, head east to enter Snowpoint City.
