There is a cruise ship in Castelia City called the Royal Unova. The last time I was here, it wasn’t ready, but now, it sets sail for a cruise every night! I wanted to see the sights, but got wrapped up in some battles against some trainers on the ship, and before I knew it, we were back in port.

I spent a little time in the Dream World with Dunsparce. It gained a level from the trip, and brought back a Druddigon that knows the move Sucker Punch.

I rotated my team, keeping Psyduck and Swablu with me, and then adding Shuckle, Elekid, Rattata, and Igglybuff. I also sent Koffing to Fennel.

I took Igglybuff for a massage in Castelia City, to hopefully make it happier and thus closer to evolving. I wanted another ride on the Royal Unova, but ended up getting there too late as it only runs in the early evening. So I went back down into the sewers, with the intent of going back to the Castelia Gardens. Instead, I ended up getting lost, but found a large hole in the wall along one of the passages that seemed to lead to some kind of tunnel. I found a few trainers and scientists there exploring the place. Apparently it’s called the Relic Passage, and actually connects to the Relic Castle in the Desert Resort just north of Castelia.

I rotated my team yet again, keeping Elekid and Igglybuff with me, and adding Riolu, Zubat, and Grimer to the team.

I earned another medal, making 37:
Battle Veteran

I spent a lot of time training in the Relic Passage, and eventually found an Onix! I was trying to catch it, but regular Poké Balls just weren’t working. I decided to follow tradition, and I tossed a Great Ball, and caught it! It was amazing to find yet another Kanto Pokémon burrowing under cities of Unova!

“Onix, the Rock Snake Pokémon. Onix burrow through the ground at a speed of 50 mph while feeding on large boulders. Opening their large mouths, they ingest massive amounts of soil and create long tunnels.”

172. Onix


I also earned one more medal, bringing the total to 38:

It’s been a busy week, with a wedding in Washington DC last weekend and a long week of work. But now it’s time to return to Castelia City and back to some Pokémon training! I took Zubat, Sunkern, Igglybuff, Riolu, Dunsprace, and Growlithe with me. I went to the Castelia Gardens to train, and I also caught a Skitty while I was there! I know that there are Eevee here too somewhere, so I think I’m going to stick around a bit to do more training.

173. Skitty

I’m so glad we got an extra hour of sleep tonight, I needed it! And while I slept, I spent some time in the Dream World with Cinccino. Found: nothing new; Dunsparce with Stealth Rock.

I’m rotating quite a few Pokémon as I train. When I was in the Castelia Gardens, I found a wild Eevee! The first one I found got away, but then I found another in a double battle with a Rattata. My Elekid paralyzed it with its Static ability, and then I was able to catch it in a Net Ball.

174. Eevee


When I returned to the Pokémon Center, I traded in a Hint Medal for a real Medal, making 39/55:
Noneffective Artist

I went back to the Castelia Gardens, and caught another Eevee, this time with a Quick Ball.

Then I took a little nap while watching football, and went into the Dream World with my Koffing. In addition to it gaining a level, we brought back a Drilbur that can use the move Rock Climb.
