Things to Do Before Getting to the 2nd Gym

Get a Grass/Electric-type Pokemon

The second gym leader, Nessa, has the Water/Rock-type Pokemon Drednaw. Therefore having a Grass-type Pokemon who can deal 4x damage, or an Electric-type to deal 2x damage will be advantageous.

We recommend picking up a Eldegoss from the bridge on Route 5!

Try and pick up the Eldegoss floating around on the bridge of Route 5. It starts at a high level, and already knows the move Razor Leaf, which will come in very handy.

Picking up Toxel from the Pokemon Day Care on Route 5 is also useful


If you stop at the Route 5 Pokemon Day Care Center on the way to the gym leader's town, you can pick up the Electric-type Pokemon Toxel. This Pokemon can be of use against Nessa, so be sure to get it before moving on!
