Wild Pokémon - Reflection Cave, First Floor

Mime Jr. (horde)
Mr. Mime
Roggenrola (horde)
Roggenrola and Carbink (horde)
Woobat (dark spots)

Geosenge Town was quiet. Too quiet. So quiet that it's suspicious. What'll you do about this strange state of affairs? Why, flee for the hills, of course. The Reflection Cave awaits!

Reflection Cave

- Walk into the cave a short distance. A trainer will be staring at the reflective wall. Talk to him for a battle.

Backpacker Lane

Linoone, level 26

Ultimately just annoying with Sand Attack. Automatic hitting moves are recommended, though a fighting-type can take it down in one hit anyway.

Reward: $1,040

- Continue into the cave to the split. Head north and you'll find a Nest Ball.

- Head back south. To your right is a large rock formation. You can walk along the top of the formation to find a Revive.

- Walk south. A trainer is pacing here.

Battle Girl Hedvig

Throh, level 25

Hawlucha, level 26

Reward: $1,248

These dudes aren't amazingly strong, but they are quite durable. You'll have to outlast them. Psychic is highly recommended.

- Head south. Upon a small platform is a Moonstone.

- Backtrack and head to the east. The girl looking in the mirror will challenge you.

Ace Trainer Monique

Doduo, level 24

Helioptile, level 25

Granbull, level 24

Reward: $2,500

Granbull's the biggest problem here, and even it's not that bad.

- Carry on east. There's a set of stairs. The north is a dead end, so go down.

- A girl at the bottom of the stairs will restore your pokemon's health if needed.

- Head east. There's a trainer waiting to challenge you at the crossroads.

Tourist Monami

Nidorina, level 26

Reward: $1,872

Very easy. Any number of moves can bring this solo pokemon down.

- Go east at the intersection. On top of a rise you'll find a Black Belt.

- Backtrack and go south at the intersection. Hey, a familiar face. Tierno will give you TM 70, Flash.

- East. Near the next set of stairs is an Escape Rope.

- Follow the path. Trainer!

Black Belt Igor

Sawk, level 28

Glass cannon. Hits hard and moves fairly fast, but can't take many hits. A swift flying-type will wipe it out quickly.

Reward: $1,344

- Carry on. Another trainer.

Psychic Franz

Chimecho, level 24

Golett, level 24

Got a dark-type? You're made. Otherwise, beware confusion.

Reward: $1,344

- Further up... guess what... trainer!

Tourist Haruto

Nidorino, level 26

Reward: $1,344

Aother fairly uninspired battle. Shrug? Poisoning kinda sucks.

- Up north... two more trainers. Slight variation, at least...

Honeymooners Yuu & Ami

Vespiquen, level 26

Combee, level 26

Reward: $3,744

Poor little Combee doesn't stand a chance. Vespiquen isn't that tough, but it has a tendency to skyrocket its defenses. Focus on it first, before you wind up having to chip your way through its HP bit by bit.

- Slip past the traiers and head east along the mirrored wall to find a Hyper Potion.

- Climb the stairs to the west. At the top is a trainer guarding the southern path.

Ace Trainer Emil

Absol, level 26

Pinsir, level 25

Reward: $2,500

A bit of a troublesome team. Absol likes to swap to Pinsir quickly, which can really screw up your strategy. I recommend letting a flying-type take point, as Absol isn't that troublesome to them and will put Pinsir in a tight spot if you swap. Be warned, Pinsir might surprise you with Brick Break.

- South of here the path leads to a set of stairs that descend deeper into the cave. I recommend continuing west to find an Iron and heading upstairs first, where you'll find a boulder to shift into place, the exit to Shalour City, and a trainer. Use the Pokemon Center in Shalour to heal up before continuing.

Hiker Dunstan

Sandile, level 22

Dwebble, level 23

Diggersby, level 24

Reward: $1,344

The first two guys here are pretty lame. Diggersby can be a bit of a surprise by contrast, as he's both bulky and fairly strong. He likes to whittle away his own HP with Take Down, though, so you won't find taking away his HP too hard.

- Down to the third floor. Head north to the wall, then edge past the rise to your left and go up the stairs. You'll find an Earth Plate nearby.

- Walk west along the wall, watching the mirror. You'll see a door in the wall to the south of you.

- Beyond here is TM 74, Gyro Ball. Continue south through this small room.

- To the left of where you come out is a conspicuous bright spot on the floor. Nothing's here... yet. (I have NO doubt something appears here. When I find out what, I'll fill this in.)

- All done. Back to the exit, and out to Shalour City!

Return Trip

- Remember that shiny spot? Come back here after beating the Champion, between 8 and 9 PM. You'll find Alakazite. (Thanks to Mr. Nugga for pointing this out. If the Alakazite does NOT appear, you may have to have your Mega Ring upgraded by Professor Sycamore first.)

    I went between 8 and 9 pm, I went to Professor Sycamore already so I'm not sure what's going on, any help?

    I think Carbink is closer to uncommon - but it may only appear on one of the floors. I suspect the bottom. This coming week I'm going to spend a lot of time revamping the wild pokemon lists, and I'll probably be splitting the table into three or four, one for each floor. Same goes for outdoor pokemon at different times and locations.

    I can agree on that one. I don't like using Mr. Mime that much, but they're a pain to knock out and they're way too numerous in that dumb cave.

    After getting through Reflection Cave I'm sure of one thing; I've never hated MR. Mime more in my entire life. Anyway, thanks for the guide, I was having a little trouble with this one.
