Floaroma Town, Meadow and Valley Windworks - Pokémon, trainers and items in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

Our in-progress guide to Pokémon BDSP's trainers, items, and wild Pokémon.

Floaroma Town, Floaroma Meadow and Valley Windworks are your next main locations in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, following on from Ravaged Path and Route 204 North in your adventure.

Below we'll take you through all the key details for the location, including any Pokémon encounters, trainers, and items that might be available, plus a walkthrough of your key objectives and anything else you'll need to know.

On this page:

Floaroma Town Pokémon, trainers and items

Floaroma Town is a small - and unsurprisingly, flower-filled - town that marks your next stop on the journey. There are a couple of things to do, including collecting a few items and berries and, crucially, collecting a gifted Mew and Jirachi (two ultra-rare, Mythical Pokémon that are only ever recieved via special gifts) from the elderly couple, if you have Pokémon Let's Go and Pokémon Sword or Shield save data on your Switch respectively.


Available Pokémon

Pokémon Availability
Mew Gifted from Elderly Man in south-west flowers if you have Pokémon Let's Go save data
Jirachi Gifted from Elderly Lady in south-west flowers if you have Pokémon Sword or Shield save data.


Items Location
2x Oran Berries Out the front of the flower shop
2x Cheri Berries Out the front of the flower shop
3x TM88 Pluck From the girl with the Clefairy in the central house - answer Yes
Sprayduck Watering Can From the lady inside the flower shop
Chesto Berry From lady in the flower shop

Otherwise, access to Floaroma Meadow in the north-west is blocked off by a couple of Grunts for the moment, so head east onto the very beginning of Route 5 and past that, Valley Windworks.

Valley Windworks Pokémon, trainers and items

As you head east out of Floaroma Town onto the bottom of Route 205 (the main part is blocked for now, so we cover Route 205 on the next walkthrough page), you'll encounter a young girl who tells you her father's missing - he's stuck in the Valley Windworks with a load of Team Galactic Grunts!

Head over to the building on the eastern end of the route and battle the Grunt guarding the door.


When you defeat them, they'll run inside and lock themselves in, telling you there's only one other Works Key that'll open the door, and it's being looked after by the other Grunts over at Floaroma Meadow!

Head back to Floaroma Town, and go to the north-west corner, which'll now be clear for you to access Floaroma Meadow.

Go to the Meadow and defeat the pair of Grunts there, and then head back to Valley Windworks.

Inside, more Grunts wait for you - defeat them all, including their leader, Commander Mars, and the Scientest there will be saved. He's that little girl's father, who's very glad to have him back!

That Scientist will also let you in on a secret, that a special Pokémon will appear outside the Valley Windworks building once a week. It's a Drifloon, and it only appears on Fridays - this is the only way to catch a Drifloon in the game, so it's worth visiting here on a Friday to come get one!

Finally, there's also a Honey Tree on this route - the different-looking yellow-brown one. If you put Honey on it (which you get for the first time by beating the grunts back at the Meadow) and then wait a short while, a Pokémon will appear there. There's a tiny chance of this being either a Heracross or Munchlax, which are two very rare Pokémon! There are plenty of these Honey Trees all over the region, so you know.

Available Pokémon

Shellos (West Sea form) Grass
Pachirisu Grass
Bidoof Grass
Buizel Grass

Floaroma Meadow Pokémon, trainers and items

When you can first access Floaroma Meadow, you'll need to take down a couple of Team Galactic Grunts here that are hassling a man for some Honey - and get the Works Key as a result.

Later on, you'll be able to access Floaroma Meadow from a different location by using the Surf HM, but for now, head back to Valley Windworks, and then when you're all done there, it's on to your next destination: Route 205!
