Located east of Nimbasa City and Route 16, Route 15 is a small post-game area that you can almost completely skip if you're not interested in trading between Pokémon generations. If you want a complete Pokédex, however, this place is an absolute necessity. We'll come through via the Route 16 entrance.

Immediately after you enter Route 15 you'll see a trainer roaming nearby. North of him is a trailer with a Scientist who wants to trade her Rotom for a Ditto. (Her dialogue is a bit confusing, but this is the trade she wants to make.) There are stairs next to the trailer, but we'll ignore them for a moment.

Pokéfan Elliot
  • Growlithe, level 60
  • Stoutland, level 60
  • Houndour, level 60
Reward: 3,840 P

Near the south end of Elliot's patrol route you'll find stairs leading into grass. There's a trainer waiting at the bottom. Near the trainer are two ledges, and if you search around after jumping down the first ledge you'll find a hidden HP Up. Going down both ledges will bring you to another trainer.

Backpacker Talon
  • Seedot, level 60
  • Croagunk, level 60
  • Cacnea, level 60
Reward: 1,440 P

Backpacker Corin
  • Poochyena, level 60
  • Cubone, level 60
  • Torkoal, level 60
Reward: 1,440 P

There's a set of stairs to the west of Corin. Go up them and you'll find a thin path leading to a Max Potion. Trek through the grass to the east of Corin and you'll see more stairs, blocked by a hole. There's a rock you can smack into the hole with Strength. Nudge the rock west until the left side of it is just past the nearby, immovable boulder, them push the first rock north and east. This creates a path up to a patch of dark green grass where you'll find a hidden Ultra Ball.

All the way west you'll find stairs out of this grassy pit. There's another rock you can push with Strength over here. Zigzag nudge it into the nearby hole to create a path to TM26 Earthquake. The stairs north of here will take you to the end of the Route, where you'll find a trainer. Up the stairs west of her is another trainer, the last on the Route.

Pokéfan Lydia
  • Meowth, level 60
  • Glameow, level 60
  • Liepard, level 60
Reward: 3,840 P

Scientist Marie
  • Gulpin, level 60
  • Garbodor, level 60
  • Magnezone, level 60
Reward: 2,880 P

If you continue east of here you'll reach either Black City (Black 2) or White Forest (White 2). First, though, we'll check out the building that Scientist Marie was guarding.

Poké Transfer Lab

Transferring Pokémon between generations of games has long been a staple of the Pokémon series, and Black 2 and White 2 are no exception. This time around the transfer process is completed via the Poké Transfer Lab, a little station on Route 15. Using Download Play you can use the Poké Transfer Lab to bring Pokémon from one of your Generation IV games to Black 2 and White 2, via a simple bow-shooting game. You can transfer six Pokémon at a time, though any you miss in the minigame will be sent back to their game of origin.

It is important to note that any Pokémon traded from Generation IV to Generation V can never be sent back. This is a one-way trip, so make sure you're happy with the swap.
