Congratulations, Champion! You stand at the top of the Pokémon League! It's difficult to imagine a more prestigious position . . . so, really, where do you go from here? Professor Sycamore seems to have an idea, and he's willing to share if you meet him in Lumiose City . . .

  • Head for Lumiose City. Specifically, you want to meet Sycamore at Lumiose Station on the North Boulevard. Once there he'll give you a TMV Pass, allowing you to take the train to Kiloude City. Use the train on the ticketing machine and off you go!

Kiloude City

  • You'll arrive in Kiloude Station. Speak to the boy right next to where you appear. Answer "Perfume" to his question and he'll give you a Max Revive.
  • Leave Kiloude Station. A man at the entrance will recognize you and give you the Vs. Recorder. You can use the Vs. Recorder to record your battles and upload them online. Snazy.
  • Down the street is the local Pokémon Center. Inside is a man called the Judge who will tell you the overall 'potential' of a Pokémon—namely, the progression of its stats, and in what areas it is strongest. Also here is a vendor who will sell you several powerful TMs, including Overheat, Wild Charge, Giga Impact, Reflect, and Light Screen.
  • Continue east down the street. In the bottom-right corner of town is a house. A little girl inside will give you TM 91, Flash Cannon.
  • Go north of the house. Up a set of stairs to your right is a Nugget.
  • In the center of town is the Battle Maison. You can fight battles in the Maison in exchange for Battle Points (BP) which you can then spend on a variety of prizes. We'll deal with the Maison in a separate article.
  • West of the Battle Maison is a house. Inside is a young man who will ask your opinion regarding flying or levitating Pokémon and Ground-type moves. Answer "All right" on the first question (or any of the others, I don't think it matters), "Gravity" on the second, and "Mold Breaker" for the third. Do so and he'll challenge you to a battle.

Weezing, level 65

Bronzong, level 65

Eelektross, level 66

Reward: $6,600

An easy enough battle, and actually a little silly, as he'll use Gravity to bring his own levitating Pokémon down to your level. Ground-type moves work on all three, if you can manage it.

  • North of this house are two more. A girl in the left house will give you TM 58, Sky Drop.
  • Run all the way east. Inside the house, you'll find is the Friend Safari. Each owner of a 3DS receives a friend code, and you can visit the Friend Safaris of each person you register in your 3DS as a Friend. Each Safari will have its own unique Pokémon to capture. In short, the more Friends you have registered, the more options for catching Pokémon.
  • Check the bush to the right of the Friend Safari to find a hidden PP Up.
  • In the north of town is a small park with a pond in the center. There's a girl here who wants to paint something very specific, based entirely on the clothes you're wearing. Guys will have to make their outfit as colourful as possible, using bright tones on all parts of their body, before speaking to her. In exchange, she'll give you the Bamboo Sprig Hat. Girls are a bit more specific, as the artist wants them to be "feminine and lacy"; try visiting the boutique in Anistar City. Girls get a Sundae Dress.
  • Check the small patch of flowers up and to the right of the artist to find a Max Revive.
  • Participate in a few battles in the Battle Maison. (I did ten, but you can probably do less.) Check this park again and you'll find your neighbour waiting. He wants to battle.

Altaria, level 67

Clefable, level 68

Absol, level 68

Chesnaught / Delphox / Greninja, level 70

Reward: $7,000, Absolite

Your neighbour hasn't changed much, and by now you'll have plenty of countermeasures to get rid of them all. Clefable is the exception; you'll have to cope with Focus Blast and Moonblast while mashing away at its high health. Poison is a good way to mow through it.

  • In addition to the Absolite you'll win for beating your neighbour, they'll tell you that Sycamore has learned something new about Mega Evolution. Check out the sundial in Anistar City and your Mega Ring will now be able to detect Mega Stones spread throughout Kalos. Woo!
  • Aaaand that's about it! You'll come back here often for post-game shenanigans, though, so be prepared to memorize this place on the map.

I'm working on them. Been a bit sidetracked by work. Hoping to have them up sometime tomorrow.

Can you add a guide to the Looker Quests, please.

Using the guides you've put out so far helped me a lot in getting past the Elite Four and catch the Pokémon I wanted. I really want to say thanks for the effort. Last time I played a Pokémon game was Gold and Silver for Game Boy Color when I was a kid and a lot has changed. This really helped a lot.

Jinx on October 26, 2013:

The boy/girl (I can't tell) right next to where you appear when you first get there asked me "what's the sticky stuff swirlix expels to stop its opponent's movement" Answer is Threads and they also give a Max Revive. I have Pokémon X.

You forgot to mention Terminus Cave.

Cannibal on October 23, 2013:

The first house you walk past in Kiloude City has a girl just in the entrance who wants to see a pokémon use Petal Blizzard. My Venusaur had it and used it in return she gave me a Revive. Just something else to add for you. :)

Tania on October 21, 2013:

I really hate that girls can't have the pangoro hat! It's the only one I like :c

Matt Bird (author) from Canada on October 21, 2013:

Guide ain't done yet. I'm hoping to do the rest of Terminus Cave, as well as the whole Looker thing, today. Thanks, tho.

I'm not sure how much I'm looking forward to Looker's section. He was always rather goofy and superfluous in the previous games...

Parasoul on October 21, 2013:

Actually Zygarde can already be found without doing the quest line, in Terminus Cave after defeating the Elite Four. Although, thee quest line in Lumoise City is kinda interesting xD That "hard-boiled" detective Gintama reference xDD

toni on October 21, 2013:

get to anistar city was really hard i thought i was going to scream in my mind but once i stay calm i got out of that sbow mountain and reach the city i went to clothes shop i got this cute dress i love it white on top and pink at bottom my hat in blue it match very well along with some white booths. my pokémon all strong even my sylveon he on level 57.

John Galt on October 21, 2013:

You forgot the part where you go to lum city and get a quest line that takes you deeper in the story line that eventually leads you to finding Zygarde. but otherwise useful guide :D
