Marvelous Bridge (Japanese: ワンダーブリッジWonder Bridge) is a through arch bridge that connects Route 15 in eastern Unova to Route 16 in central Unova. The bridge is unique because it does not actually physically connect the two Routes. At each end of the bridge, there is an elevator which travels through cliff side down to a gate which leads to the route.
During certain occasions, the spirit of a deceased young girl will be standing on the bridge, and will disappear if the player walks towards her. An old lady in the gate to the east of the bridge will explain that the young girl used to play around the area with an Abra before the bridge was built. In the sequels, the girl will also appear in the Strange House, where she will refer to Abra and the bridge before telling the player to return the Lunar Wing there, which will trigger a battle with Cresselia.
Marvelous Bridge is home to Unova's Magikarp salesman, who, like in previous games, offers to sell the player a Magikarp for 500. However, unlike previous games, Magikarp and Gyarados are not native to Unova. Additionally, this Magikarp is guaranteed to have a perfect SpeedIV.
Marvelous Bridge can be seen from the deck of the Royal Unova. The ship travels up the river from Castelia City before turning around at the Marvelous Bridge.
In Black and White, if the player has gone to Village Bridge and spoken to the woman with four Patrat, the woman and her troop will then appear on Marvelous Bridge and perform a cup-and-ball mini-game with her Patrat. Each Patrat has a distinctive characteristic: one has the biggest belly, the other the trendiest eyebrows, another the cutest dimples and the last has the biggest smile (of course, their sprites are all the same). The objective of the game is to guess which Patrat is holding a Big Mushroom. If the player wins, the Big Mushroom is the prize. If the player loses, they may try again until the correct guess is made. The player may only play until winning once per day. A winning strategy is to just look at the order of their final jumps.

Once per day, Ace Trainer Glinda will battle the player in the eastern Bridge Gate. She can be battled again the same day if the player defeats Ace Trainer EileenB or Ace Trainer LouW at Opelucid City's Battle House.
Upon defeating the Trainer on the ground floor of the Battle House, Glinda will be ready for a rematch until she is defeated, unless the Trainer on the ground floor of the Battle House had already been defeated that day. This allows Glinda to be battled up to twice in one day by defeating the Trainer on the ground floor of the Battle House, battling Glinda on another day then defeating the Trainer on the ground floor of the Battle House then battling Glinda again on the same day.
