After defeating the Pokémon League, you'll find yourself back where your adventure began: Aspertia City. As you leave your bedroom, Mom says that she is expecting a visitor. A moment later, a man stops by and introduces himself as Professor Juniper! Cedric Juniper, father to the other Professor Juniper. He then upgrades your Pokédex, enabling National Dex mode. This switches the numbering system from the Unova Dex listing to the international listing, though you are free to switch it back. Cedric leaves, and Mom gives you two Max Revives as a gift.
Step outside to meet Hugh and his little sister, who thank you for helping return her former Purrloin. They also tell you of a dream she has been having, of a Zoroark calling out to you from Victory Road. As they leave, Hugh congratulates you on becoming the new Champion.
Mass outbreaks of Pokémon will now appear in certain parts of the region. These locations change daily, and are broadcast on the electric bulletin boards in every gate.
Visit the Pokémon Center and access Amanita's PC to receive a new wallpaper commemorating your entrance into the Hall of Fame. It can be accessed under Special on the menu.
Return to Alder's house in the northwest part of town to battle the former Champion. His Pokémon are a little tougher than those of the current Champion, but thankfully not by much, so he's a good opponent to fight right away as a warmup for some of the upcoming fights.
Half of his team is comprised of Bug-type Pokémon. Fire attacks will roast his Accelgor and Escavalier, and his Bouffalant takes double the damage from Fighting moves. Flying- and Psychic-type attacks work well against his Conkeldurr, while his Braviary is vulnerable to Electric- and Ice-type moves. The star of the show, Volcarona, takes massive damage from Rock-type attacks, though Flying- and Water-type moves are also effective. Don't hesitate to use healing items, as his attacks provide a lot of type coverage.
After the battle, his grandson Benga runs in. He excitedly tells his grandfather that he made it through the Black TowerB2 / White TreehollowW2. He leaves, and Alder suggests that you challenge him in Black CityB2 / White ForestW2.
Cave of Being
The Cave of Being is a small cave that can be reached by climbing the waterfall on the south side of Route 20. It is said that the deepest part of the cave connects to the distant Sinnoh region. Professor Juniper is inside investigating the area. Suddenly, a mysterious presence can be felt, and the three lake guardians — Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf — appear. They float here for a moment before wandering off. To find them, you must step on a certain spot when they are nearby so that they reveal themselves.
Mesprit can be found on the Celestial Tower's rooftop. Stand at the foot of the bell platform to detect its presence.
Uxie can be found in Nacrene City in the southeast. Stand outside the Nacrene Museum to detect its presence.
On 22F of the Game Freak building, you can battle both Morimoto and Nishino once per day. Visit every day for challenging battles!
Visit Amanita's lab on the third floor of the building across the street from the Gym. Speak to her with no more than five Pokémon in your party to receive an Eevee. This Eevee is apparently one of several sent to her from her friend in the far-off Kanto region. Not only does it have its Hidden Ability, Anticipation, but when it evolves it will receive the Hidden Ability for whichever form it takes.
