Route 210 Pokémon, trainers, items and how to clear the Psyduck in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

Our complete guide to Pokémon BDSP's trainers, items, and wild Pokémon.

Route 210 is your next stop in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, following on from Solaceon Town and Ruins in your adventure, and again later on for a return visit, too.

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.

Route 210 south Pokémon, trainers and items

Route 210 is a gigantic route, heading north from Solaceon Town until it meets Route 215 that jutts off to the east, and north again from their into a foggy area that you won't be able to reach until a fair bit later in the game, after you've gained the ability to clear the group of Psyduck that are blocking the path.

For now, we're sticking to the first part, which is Route 210 South, and pretty simple. There are a fair few trainers, items, and wild Pokémon, plus a Café which has a load of trainers inside, and a person who'll sell you Moomoo Milk, a healing item that's much better value for money than regular Potions, so stock up!

There is also a Honey Tree on this route, which has its own Honey Tree Pokémon spawn list.

With those Psyduck blocking the way north, head east next, to Route 215!

How to clear the Psyduck and Route 210 north Pokémon, trainers and items

Eventually, it'll be time to return to Route 210 and access the northern part of it. To do so you'll need to clear those Psyduck out of the way!

To move the Psyduck, you'll need to get the Secret Medicine from Cynthia, which you'll obtain after visiting Pastoria City later on and then, once you're done there, chasing the Team Galactic Grunt all the way to Valor Lakefront and defeating him.

Interact with the Psyduck once you have that Secret Medicine and it'll clear up their terrible headaches, allowing you to get by. After that, there's a massive portion of the route left: first a clear section, then a foggy section further north. To access absolutely everything, you'll need to return here when you have the Pokétch apps for Surf, Waterfall, and Rock Climb, as well as Defog which you'll have already by now.

Once you reach the thick fog where it gets hard to see, use the Defog app from your Pokétch to clear it, so you can continue onwards! Return again with those extra HMs to access a Move Tutor in a house who teaches your Dragon-type Pokémon with high friendship the move Draco Meteor, and a few other rare items.
