Veilstone Gym

The gym is located to the southwestern side of town. As you approach it, you’ll run into Dawn or Lucas. They’ll briefly speak with you before leaving.

There will be a puzzle inside of the gym, you will need to slide the walls over in order to create a path to Maylene.

There are also four trainers that can battle in here.

Trainers found in Veilstone Gym:

    • Black Belt Jeffery
      • Machoke Lv. 26
      • Meditite Lv. 26
    • Black Belt Darren
      • Machoke Lv. 25

    • Black Belt Colby
      • Machoke Lv. 25
      • Machoke Lv. 25
      • Machoke Lv. 25

Heal your team before solving the wall puzzle.

Now, for the walls. You need to line up the two walls in top middle so that can pass through and reach Maylene. The images below will be numbered to correspond with written directions.

The walls will reset if you exit the gym.

Starting on the right side.

  • Move 1 to the right
  • Move 3 to the right
  • Move 5 to the left
  • Move 2 to the right
  • Move 4 to the right
  • Move 2 to the left
  • Move 6 to the left

Now, let’s work on the left side.

  • Move 3 to the left
  • Move 1 to the left
  • Move 2 to the left
  • Move 4 to the left
  • Move 5 to the right
  • Move 1 to the right
  • You’ll then be clear to go all the way up to the top and slide the top wall (not pictured) to the right which will clear the path to Maylene.

Maylene Battle

Her first two Pokémon shouldn’t be a problem, but her Lucario will spam Drain Punch which will heal it. So, make sure you’re going into this battle playing the matchups. Her fighting type are weak against Psychic and Flying. A fire type will also be helpful against Lucario as it is also part Steel type.

    • Maylene
      • Meditite lv. 27
      • Machoke Lv. 27
      • Lucario Lv. 30

Upon defeating Maylene, you’ll be given the Cobble Badge, Stickers and TM 60 (Drain Punch).

You can now use Fly outside of battle when you get it as well.

Help Dawn or Lucas

As soon as you exit the gym, you’ll again be approached by Dawn or Lucas. They will ask you for help in finding their stolen Pokédex.

You will need to head to the Team Galactic Warehouse which is to the north of Veilstone City just above the Department Store.

Make sure to heal your team as you’ll be participating in a double battle here.

    • Team Galactic Grunt
      • Beautifly Lv. 25
      • Stunky Lv. 25
    • Team Galactic Grunt
      • Dustox Lv. 25
      • Croagunk Lv. 25

After you beat the two Grunts, go into the warehouse they were guarding and grab TM 94 (Fly).

With that taken care of, we can now make our way to Pastoria City by way of Route 214 to the south.
