Matt Bird writes all sorts of nonsense, but he dedicates a large chunk of his time to writing game walkthroughs.
Wild Pokémon – Route 10
Uncommon (grass), Rare (yellow flowers)
Well done! You've conquered your second Pokémon Gym Challenge. There are still six more to go, though, and a lot of ground to cover before you can take on the Elite Four and the regional champion. Do you have the moxie to make it happen? Best prove it by carrying on in your journey. Northward!
Route 10 – Menhir Trail
- Head north out of Cyllage City. Route 10 is just across a bridge.
- On the right side of the trail, you'll find a tree that drops Iapapa Berries.
- Go north off of the trail. There's a boulder to move with Strength ahead, and beyond that a small maze blocking in another boulder that must be moved to the right. Push it down twice, right three times, up twice, right three times, up once, and then right to the hole. Beyond is TM 73, Thunder Wave.
- Return to the field full of small menhirs. Check the two menhirs in the bottom-left corner of the flower field for a Revive.
- Back on the path, you'll encounter a trainer.
(Thanks to Mason for pointing out Houndour's presence here in Pokémon X. Woot.)
Solosis, level 22
Oh man, a DBZ reference. At any rate, a Dark-type will make quick work of this little guy.
- Just west of here is a woman pacing along the path.
Skiploom, level 19
Azumarrill, level 19
Dunsparce, level 19
Not a big problem. Fumiko's Pokémon like status ailments, but they're more annoying than deadly since they can't generally follow up with strong attacks.
- Ahead is a huge field filled with menhirs. Check the bottom-right corner of the area for a Mind Plate.
- Run to the small barrier wall partway through the field. West of here you'll find an X Accuracy, in the top-left corner of the area. Run to the right side of this same field, before crossing the barrier, and face down one square. Search to find a Paralyze Heal.
- As you try to enter the second portion of the field a Team Flare Grunt will stop you. Revenge!
Team Flare Grunt
Houndour, level 21
Golbat, level 23
Golbats always have the potential to be quite annoying with Confuse Ray, so bring it down in one hit if possible. Otherwise, easy fight.
- Once you enter the second field, take a right. There's a small gap in the grass next to the corner of the surrounding wall. You'll find a Burn Heal hidden here.
- Ahead in the second field you'll see a trainer running around to your left. Past him is a Thunder Stone, tucked against the next separating wall.
Meditite, level 19
Kirlia, level 21
Neither of them are terribly threatening, nor can they last long against physical attacks.
- Make your way northeast. As you try to pass into another portion of the field, another Grunt will stop you for a fight.
Team Flare Grunt
Electrike, level 23
Croagunk, level 21
Avoid attacking the Electrike with a physical attack and you'll be fine. (Get some new Pokémon already, Team Flare. Eesh.)
- Follow the cleared path to the west and, yep, another Grunt.
Team Flare Grunt
Gulpin, level 24
You might get poisoned. Scaaaary!
- North, through the grass, is another trainer.
Drifloon, level 19
Pachirisu, level 19
Hippopotas, level 19
Nothing bad here. Hippopotas can be a little annoying with Sand Stream whipping up a Sandstorm, but that's a fairly minor concern.
- Continue north. You'll soon reach the end of the menhir fields. Huzzah! Welcome to Geosenge Town!
raine on November 07, 2013:
Eevee is common in the flowers and is rare in the grass however has anyone found a female one ive been looking for one for days
Cameron on November 01, 2013:
I can confirm Eevee is rare--I have spent over 60 battles trying to find one before. And it seems more common in yellow flowers. I'm playing x.
Aimee Tricone on October 27, 2013:
I found an Emolga and accidentally killed it :/ my heart hurts, seeing as how it's listed as rare.
Also, in my experience, Eevee is found more often in the yellow flowers than it is in the grass. I've found tons of them while trying to find another Emolga. (I've found all males, though. -_-)
I'm playing X.
Elise on October 27, 2013:
I play pokemon Y and I had over 7 encounters with eevee. Maybe it is time specific?
Jacob on October 21, 2013:
hondour is available in X but houndoominite is in Y. electrike is in Y but manectricite is in X. Kinda ass backwards don't you think
lyko27 on October 18, 2013:
Can confirm elektrike horde, very rare though. I'm playing Y.
glawen on October 18, 2013:
hondour is very common at night, so are yamna, pokemon X, just spend 5h finding a female Eevee :p
Richard on October 18, 2013:
I believe Eevee is rare in X. Ive been trying for awhile. Can't find one.
Unknow on October 18, 2013:
There is even a electrike horde
Izzie on October 16, 2013:
I'm playing X- I'd say Houndour's pretty uncommon, been looking for ages and haven't encountered one at all...
Great walkthrough though, most useful one I've come across!
Cassa on October 15, 2013:
Maybe Eevee is rare in Y. I've only found one.
Kryss on October 15, 2013:
Eevee is rare on Pokemon Y. It is more common in X.
Code on October 14, 2013:
Emolga is super common in Pokemon X.
Robertog_1992 on October 14, 2013:
just met a yanma horde
Matt Bird (author) from Canada on October 14, 2013:
Eevee rare? I found, like, five of 'em when I was going through here. Will toss in Yanma, though, thanks.
The Host on October 14, 2013:
Make eevee rare and add Yanma to the list(horse)
