This is the Bulbapedia walkthrough for Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. This walkthrough follows the remade Nintendo DS version, not Pokémon Gold and Silver.
The guide for those can be found here.


Cianwood City

Cianwood City

Cianwood City is a small, isolated settlement on the coast of a large island. Despite its distance from the mainland, the area still attracts Trainers aiming to challenge the Cianwood Gym or visit the centuries-old pharmacy known for its unique medicine. In addition, Cliff Edge Gate leads up onto the jagged cliffs to the west, where the new Safari Zone is located. The rocks that wash up on the northern beach can be cleared away to reveal hidden Pokémon and items.

Cianwood Pharmacy

The Cianwood City Pharmacy has served as the local Poké Mart for the last 500 years. Inform the pharmacist of the situation at the lighthouse to receive the SecretPotion, a powerful remedy that should restore Amphy's health. After dispensing the SecretPotion, the pharmacist offers traditional medicine for sale.

Cameron's House

The house in the northeast belongs to Cameron, a photographer who will periodically appear in many locations across Johto and Kanto. When encountered, he will take pictures of you and your party against the surrounding area. After certain requirements have been met, he will also take your picture with individual Gym Leaders and other notable figures. These pictures are recorded in the Photo Album, which stores up to 36 images on the PC. Outside, he has an automatic camera set up for visitors to take their own pictures with their party.

Kirk's House

Cianwood may be isolated, but it is not without its share of crime. The house to the south of the Gym belongs to a PokéManiac named Kirk. He was bullied by a kid with red hair into giving up his prized Sneasel. Worried that the thief may return, he asks you to take his Shuckle, Shuckie, for safekeeping. Despite having the highest Defense and Special Defense of any Pokémon, Shuckle's low HP prevents it from withstanding much damage. After enough time has passed, he will ask for Shuckie to be returned. If you agree, he will let you keep it if its friendship is high; otherwise, he takes it back. Before accepting it back, he asks that you take the Berry Juice it is holding.

Cliff Edge Gate

North of the city is a cave hewn into the cliffs. This is Cliff Edge Gate, a cavern that leads to Routes 47 and 48. The new Safari Zone lies farther west, beyond Route 48. Construction is not yet finished, so no one is permitted to pass through right now.

The North Ledge

On the north side of the beach is a small ledge at the foot of the cliffs. When you approach, Suicune takes off. It races around the beach before stopping to examine your character again, then runs off across the water. Eusine shows up shortly after, and challenges you to a battle in order to earn Suicune's respect. Use Ghost- or Dark-type moves against his Drowzee and Haunter, and Ground attacks to deal with his Electrode.



Eusine says that he is starting to understand why Suicune is keeping its eye on you, then leaves to continue his pursuit of the beast.

Cianwood Gym

Cianwood Gym

Cianwood City Pokémon Gym
Leader: Chuck

His Roaring Fists Do The Talking

The Cianwood Gym trains Fighting-type Pokémon, so Flying- and Psychic-type attacks will have the greatest impact. Normal-, Ice-, Rock-, Dark-, and Steel-type Pokémon all take serious damage from Fighting attacks. The Gym Leader, Chuck, can be found not far from the entrance, meditating under the relentless waterfall. But with all the noise, he cannot hear your request for a battle. Climb the left side of the Gym to fight the second Black Belt, Nob. When he sees you, he moves to the left of the highest stairway. Climb the right side and cross the bridge to push the red button. This retracts the winch, stopping the water flow.

Both of Chuck's Pokémon know Focus Punch, a powerful move that forces the user to first spend a turn tightening its focus. If attacked during that turn, the user loses its focus and the attack fails. Primeape can retaliate against Flying Pokémon with Rock Slide, and Poliwrath can lull its opponent to sleep with Hypnosis. Both have moves that put Quilava at a disadvantage, while Croconaw loses the use of its Water moves against Poliwrath, thanks to its Water Absorb Ability. This is one of the few Gyms where Bayleef has an advantage.

Cianwood Gym
The Storm Badge




Defeated, Chuck awards you the Storm Badge, which enables the use of Fly in the field. He also hands over TM01 (Focus Punch) as a prize.

Fly Like A Bird

Speak to the woman in front of the Gym. She happens to be Chuck's wife, and is so impressed with you for defeating him, that she hands over HM02 (Fly). Fly allows instant travel to any familiar town, a much easier way to revisit earlier locations than by traveling on foot.

Olivine City

Glitter Lighthouse

Return to the lighthouse and take the elevator directly to the Light Room. Deliver the SecretPotion to Jasmine, who then administers the medicine to Amphy. It shows off its full strength with a flash as it powers the lighthouse, and seeing it restored, Jasmine promises to return to her Gym.

As you exit the lighthouse, you receive an important call from Baoba: the Safari Zone is now open! It is now possible to travel through Cliff Edge Gate at any time to reach the park.

Olivine Gym

Olivine City Pokémon Gym
Leader: Jasmine

The Steel-Clad Defense Girl

Jasmine, the quiet Gym Leader of Olivine City, has only recruited two Trainers for her Gym. As they have both been fought already in the lighthouse, they merely express their gratitude to you for retrieving Amphy's medicine. Jasmine specializes in Steel-type Pokémon, which typically have high Defense and are immune to Poison-type attacks. All three of her Pokémon are vulnerable to Fire-, Fighting-, and Ground-type moves, while her Steelix also takes serious damage from Water moves. Her two Magnemite can paralyze and confuse their opponent; her Steelix can whip up a Sandstorm that damages all but Rock, Ground, and Steel Pokémon every turn. Steelix's Screech move lowers the target's Defense, allowing it to deal even more damage with Rock Throw and Iron Tail.

Olivine Gym
The Mineral Badge




Defeated, Jasmine awards you the Mineral Badge, which ensures obedience of all Pokémon up to level 70. She also hands over TM23 (Iron Tail) as a prize.

Cliff Edge Gate (optional)

Cliff Edge Gate

Cliff Edge Gate is a cavern that connects Cianwood City to Route 47, and the new Safari Zone beyond that.

Route 47 (optional)

Route 47

Route 47 is a rugged path that links Cliff Edge Gate and Route 48. Though the route's other end is accessible now, the difficult terrain prevents those without Waterfall and Rock Climb from fully exploring the area.

Cliff Cave (optional)

Cliff Cave, 1F

Cliff Cave is a small, three-floor cave on the east side of Route 47. From the entrance, you can climb to the route's upper level to reach Route 48 and the Safari Zone. The way down is currently a dead end.

Route 48 (optional)

Route 48

Route 48 is a short riverside path that connects the rugged Route 47 to the Safari Zone Gate.


Safari Zone Gate (optional)

Safari Zone Gate

The Safari Zone Gate is a bazaar situated between Route 48 and the new Safari Zone. The stands here are the first stores that sell Dusk Balls and Quick Balls.

Route 42

Route 42

Route 42 connects Ecruteak City to Mahogany Town in the east. Mt. Mortar is a large optional cave that contains many rare Pokémon and useful items, but the deepest level is inaccessible without HM07 (Waterfall). There is also another grove of Apricorn trees located between the two lakes.

West side

Pick up TM65 (Shadow Claw) near the Ecruteak gate. As you near the western entrance to Mt. Mortar, a Hiker comes running outside and bumps into you. As an apology, he hands over HM04 (Strength), which allows a Pokémon to move certain boulders out of the way.

Center area

The area between the two lakes is home to another Apricorn grove, in a forested area behind a small tree. Suicune is hiding here as well, and it pushes past you and runs off when you remove the tree. Eusine appears not long after, and reaffirms his dedication to meeting the beast before heading off as well. Grab the Super Potion and continue east to Mahogany Town.
