Head to Acuity Lakefront!

  • Be careful not to get lost, because it's always blizzarding and hard to see anything on Route 217. It starts to Hail at the beginning of every battle.
  • You meet Maylene, the Veilstone Gym Leader when you first come to Route 217. Head north while battling with trainers, picking up items, and using Dowsing Machine app to detect items hidden in the snow.
  • Go north to find a lodge on the west side of the road. Continue north from the lodge to find HM08 Rock Climb. Then go back to the lodge and talk to the hiker inside. The hiker rewards your honesty with the Icicle Plate.
  • There is a very cold rock covered with ice in the northeast corner of the map. This rock has a supernatural power to let Eevee evolve into Glaceon when they level up on Route 217.
  • Head north while sticking to the west side of the area to appear in a narrow path between trees. Go north through this path while beating trainers to eventually reach Acuity Lakefront.
