Pokémon: Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl Walkthrough

Snowpoint City / Lake Acuity / Galactic HQ

Snowpoint City

There are a few things to do here in Snowpoint. You can challenge the gym leader right away and pick up a few items around town.

There is a temple to the north of town, but there’s nothing we can do there until we have the National Pokédex.

You can visit the house to the northwest and speak with a woman who will trade you a Haunter for a Medicham.

There is a boat to the south that will take you to the Battle Zone, but this cannot be done until you have beaten the Pokémon League.

Snowpoint Gym

This gym specializes in Ice type Pokémon. Be sure to bring Fire, Fighting and water types to attack their weakness.

You’ll be sliding around on ice in this gym trying to make your way to the leader. There will be big snowballs that you can destroy by sliding fast enough. You’ll need to destroy the snowballs in the middle to clear a path to the gym leader.

If you exit the gym, the snowballs you destroyed will respawn.

Lake Acuity

Heal up your party and head back to the entrance of Lake Acuity. The two Galactic Grunts will no longer be blocking the entrance.

As soon as you enter the lake, you’ll see your Rival speaking with Commander Jupiter. She will go to leave and then intelligently tell you exactly where she doesn’t want you to go to stop them. So naturally, go there.

Veilstone Galactic HQ

Fly to Veilstone City from Lake Acuity.

Go to the northeast corner of the city outside for the Galactic HQ and speak to the Galactic Grunt outside by the satellite dish.

He will say he doesn’t know anything about the Storage Key and then walks away. He will drop the Storage Key right where he was standing. This is a very tightly run organization here.

Anyway, pick up the key and go to the northwest section of the city to the Galactic Warehouse behind the Department Store.

Take the the teleporter on the left of the first set you come across behind the Grunt. Take the bottom one in the next room and then go up the stairs. Take the teleporter behind the staircase you just came out of. Go down the stairs in the next room and battle Scientist Frederick. Go down the stairs and follow the path around to find the Galactic Key behind the big crates.

Now that you have the key, you can go explore the rest of this building to battle the rest of the Grunts. It’s not a very big place, so it wont take that long.

When you’re ready to go, exit the warehouse and go to Galactic HQ.

you can heal your party in here by sleeping on one of beds behind the stairs. Go up the stairs and beat the two grunts. You’ll then come to three teleporters.
