Rocky wall

Rocky walls (Japanese: ごつごつのかべ rugged wall; ゴツゴツのいわはだ rugged rock surface) are a type of obstacle appearing in Generation IV and Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, commonly found in mountainous areas. To get past them, the player must have a Pokémon use the field move Rock Climb.

Terminology

The English term "rocky wall" appears in Rock Climb's description: "It can also be used to scale rocky walls." A similar text appears when using Rock Climb: "This wall is very rocky..."
