Pokémon: Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl Walkthrough

Battle Zone / Route 225 – 226 – 227

Battle Zone

Speak to the Sailor in Snowpoint City at the dock and he will take you to the Battle Zone.

As soon as you get off the boat, you’ll be speaking to your Rival. You will also be introduced to Buck here.

After the conversation, go north a few steps to see a Fisher standing near the gate. Speak to him and he will give you the Super Rod.

If you exit to the northeast, you’ll find the Battle Tower.

Battle Tower

The Battle Tower is located to the northeast of town and the attendants will explain everything to you as soon as you enter.

The attendants will also give you a Point Card. The Point Card will keep track of the Battle Points that you earn in the Battle Tower. You’ll earn more Battle Points by hitting certain performance targets while battling in the Battle Tower. You can then exchange these points for items.

While in the tower, you need to win as many battles as you can in a row. You will not gain experience and any Pokémon you see will not be added to your Pokédex.

The target goal is to win 100 battles in a row. You’ll be battling in waves of seven.

When you go to enter for the first time, you’ll be introduced to Tower Tycoon Palmer. You’ll also have another conversation with your Rival.

Note for later – Every Saturday and Sunday, your Rival will be waiting for you to battle near the entrance to the Battle Park.

Route 225

While back in the town section of Fight Area, take the exit to the northwest side of town. This is where the Fisher with the Super Rod was.
