Acuity Lakefront Pokémon, trainers and items

When you first arrive here, a pair of Galactic Grunts are blocking the entrance to Lake Acuity. Now they're out of the way (since you won at Snowpoint City Gym) you can enter the lake freely. Grab one Ultra Ball before heading in.

Once you get here, you'll discover some bad news. Barry has been defeated by a Galactic Commander, Jupiter. Head in there to help out and Jupiter will leave before you can stop them.

Chat to Barry, who says he has some soul-searching to do, and then explore the lake quickly to pick up one strong Ice-type move, TM14 Blizzard.

Your next stop now is Veilstone City, as it's time to take this lot down on their own turf: to the Team Galactic HQ!
