Victory Road is a three level dungeon between Route 23 and the Indigo Plateau. It is filled with strong Pokemon and tough Trainers. Use this guide to get all items and discover a legendary bird Pokemon.

First Floor

The path straight ahead will be blocked off by a large stone gate. To lower the wall, you will need to use the secret technique Strong Push to shove a stone block onto a switch on the ground. That is how you lower all the gates throughout this dungeon. The first stone block can be found to the east. Push it on the nearby switch to the right.

Now you can walk to the north side of the first floor. A strong Pokemon Trainer will be waiting up ahead. It’s possible to walk around her, but it’s best to challenge everyone to build your team’s strength.

Dark Physical Dragon Physical

Defeat Naomi to receive P4,800 and 5 Ultra Balls. A Coach Trainer can be challenged to the east. She will use a Ditto, which transforms into whichever Pokemon is battling it. Choose carefully!

Coach Trainer Alemana

Ditto Lv.49 Type Normal

Defeat Alemana to receive P4,900 and 10 Candies for your partner Pokemon. Follow the path to the far north side of the cave. Two items are on the other side of a big block. Unfortunately you can only push the block one way to get one item at a time. After getting one of the items, you can exit and re-enter Victory Road to reset the blocks. The two items at the northeast side of the first floor are a Leaf Stone (left) and TM56 Stealth Rock (top).

After grabbing the items, head to the northwest side of the floor. Another Pokemon Trainer will be waiting for you just before the ladder.

To the south is TM51 Blizzard, the strongest ice-type attack in the game. Now, before continuing back to the main path, take a small detour back down to the second floor. Use the ladder to the west down to a new area.

Second Floor Return – Moltres

You should now be on the northwest corner of the second floor. Walk to the east and pick up the PP Max.

The legendary Pokemon Moltres can be found right up ahead! It is the third legendary bird in Kanto. Make sure to save your game before interacting with it. When you’re ready, go ahead and challenge Moltres.

Moltres Lv.50 Type Fire/Flying
Air Slash Flamethrower
Flying Special Fire Special
Agility Heat Wave
Psychic Status Fire Special

Before you get the chance to capture Moltres, you must fight and defeat the Pokemon within the five minute time limit. Use either water-, electric-, or rock-type attacks to deal massive damage and defeat it quickly. Once you get the chance to capture it, Moltres will create a fire storm that burns any berries you throw. Wait for the embers to subside or throw a Poke Ball instead.

If you fail to defeat it in battle, fail at capturing it, or don’t like the stats and nature, reset your game and try again. Return to the third floor when you’re ready to continue on.

Third Floor Return

There is a small boulder puzzle at the northwest corner of the third floor. You must push the big block up, left, left, down, left, left, left, left, down, down, down, and right. This will set the block on the switch that opens the gate to the south.
