Part 10: Castelia Sewers

Main Walkthrough

Castelia Park is a tiny location that doesn't - at least at first glance - seem like a great fit for an entire guide. You'll see everything there is to see on the map within seconds. Yep, it's a grassy spot with a tree. Big whoop. Spend a bit of time here, though, and you'll quickly discover that Castelia Park is worth your attention - so long as you have a bunch of Poké Balls to spare.

Finding Castelia Park

Castelia Park is quite easy to reach from Castelia Sewers, though it's also easy to miss. A short distance through the Sewers you'll find a pair of stairs that lead out of the culvert. The northern stairs lead to an encounter with some Team Plasma Grunts, while the southern stairs take you deeper into the Sewers. If you take the southern stairs and check to the right you'll find a man who's desperately looking for something, and he won't let you get past. Annoying.

The man won't move until you've fought the Team Plasma Grunts and sent them packing. Go up the stairs the man was guarding and you'll find Castelia Park. There's not much to do in Castelia Park other than wander through the grass. Grab the Miracle Seed, talk to the man, and you're done. Right?

Wrong. The tall grass, light and dark, is the primary reason to come to Castelia Park. There are a lot of really cool Pokémon here, some of which you won't find anywhere else in Unova. Here's a brief rundown of what you can find.

Both Games
  • Audino (rustling grass) - Common. Yes, you can find them anywhere, but at this point in the game Castelia Park is the best place to hunt for Audinos. If you're going to train for Burgh's gym, this is where you should do it.
  • Eevee - Rare. These little normal-types don't seem all that special, but they have the distinction of evolving into seven different Pokémon, each with a distinct type and powerful in its own right. You could make an entire team out of Eevee-volutions. Eevee are rare, so expect to look around a lot.
  • Pidove - Uncommon. Nothing special, but always useful if you need a Flying-type.
  • Rattata - Common. Nothing special. You can find them in the Castelia Sewers.
Black 2
  • Buneary - Uncommon. Another Normal-type that turns into a half-decent fighter, and a good jack-of-all-trades for covering types you don't otherwise have.
  • Cottonee - Common. A Grass-type. Not that amazing, but defensively solid and a good choice if you didn't take Snivy as your starter.
  • Lopunny (rustling grass) - Rare. The evolution of Buneary. Why bother with the pre-evolution, right?
  • Whimsicott (rustling grass) - Rare. The evolution of Cottonee. Normally you need an item to evolve Cottonee, so just finding a Whimsicott will save you time and effort.
White 2
  • Petilil - Another Grass-type that's a bit more offensive than Cottonee.
  • Skitty - Uncommon. A Normal-type that evolves into another jack-of-all-trades, though one with more of an inclination for Special Attack moves.
  • Delcatty (rustling grass) - Rare. The evolution of Skitty. Waste a Moonstone? Pfft!
  • Lilligant (rustling grass) - Rare. Bypass those early years!
The Audino alone make Castelia Park a great place to visit, and the many other Pokémon more so. If you feel you're behind on levels - perhaps you struggled to help Hugh during the trip through the Castelia Sewers - then Castelia Park is your go-to place for beefing up your team before taking on the next gym challenge.
