Aside from the difficult water level puzzle, Pastoria City’s gym houses the fourth gym badge, which isn’t easy to obtain. The reason for this is that Gym Leader Crasher Wake only uses powerful Water Pokémon, and there are only a few Pokémon that are effective against them at this time.
How to Beat Crasher Wake in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl?
To reach Crasher Wake, trainers must press a specific combination of buttons to create a path to the gym leader. Unfortunately, you’ll have to battle at least three trainers to complete this path. This is the order in which it must be completed.
- To begin, go to the gym’s bottom-left corner and press the yellow button.
- Take the stairs to a path that ends just feet away from Wake, and then press the green button.
- Return to the gym’s bottom-left corner and click the blue button next to the sailor.
- After that, continue down and take the path that leads to the gym’s top-right corner. The green button next to the fisherman should be pressed.
- Take the stairs down to the bottom-right corner of the gym and press the yellow button.
- Return north and take the path to the left side of the gym once that’s done. This should lead you to a flight of stairs and the final blue button, which will take you to Wake.
Which Pokémon Does Crasher Wake Use?
Crasher Wake, like previous gym leaders, only has a party of three Pokémon and plenty of potions to heal them. Gyarados (Lv. 27), Quagsire (Lv. 27), and Floatzel (Lv. 30) are the Pokémon that will be used in this order.
Crasher Wake’s Pokémon have a slight level advantage over previous gym leader Maylene, but their move sets are the most intimidating factor.
Expect Gyarados and Floatzel to use Ice Fang more frequently than not, a move that works best against Grass and Flying-types.
Meanwhile, because trainers are likely to bring Electric-type Pokémon to the gym, Quagsire will use Mud Shot to dispatch them in two to three blows, depending on their level.
Best Pokémon to Use in the Fourth Gym
Because this gym is dominated by Water-type Pokémon, trainers who focus their parties on Electric and Grass Pokémon will have the best chance of succeeding. Because Gyarados is a Flying-type and Quagsire is a Ground-type, effective Ice moves are essential.
Because most Ice Pokémon are found later in the game, you’re better off spending 5500 Pokédollars on attacks like Blizzard at the Veilstone Department Store. Bidoof, Buizel, Shellos, and their evolutions are all common Pokémon that can learn Ice moves.
Anyone who has chosen Turtwig as their dominant Grass-type should look no further. Bullet Seed and Razor Leaf, for example, will be extremely effective against all three of Wake’s Pokémon.
Roselia is a fantastic second option for those who don’t have the starter, as it usually already has moves like Magical Leaf and Mega Drain. Roselia can be found in the Underground Hideaways or on Route 212 (just west of Pastoria).
Despite their scarcity, strong Electric-types have the same damaging effects on Water Pokémon as Grass-types.
Electric Pokémon can be found along Route 205 near the Valley Windworks, with Pachirisu being the most common. Spark, Nuzzle, and Electro Ball are Pachirisu’s best attacks against Water Pokémon, and they can all be learned by Level 25.
