It may be wise to put some
Poké Snacks at the Poké Spots to lure out Bonsly. We still have to actually take him to the little girl and the old man. Once you do get Bonsly to come to the Poké Spots, sneak up on him and he'll be startled and run, but come back to you. You automatically take him to the ONBS building in Pyrite Town. The old man will then give you the Bonsly Card, which is used for Battle Bingo at the Realgam Tower.
Justy's e-mail that said the Pre Gym is now open? Time to go there and battle him. Head up to the Pre Gym in Phenac City to battle him.
Justy will notice your Snag Machine is missing. He is surprised Team Snagem still exists (from the events of Pokémon Colosseum). You have to exit and enter the Pre Gym again to get him to battle you. However, you will have to battle four trainers before you can battle Justy.
Now you get to battle
Justy. However, unlike in Pokémon Colosseum, you don't have to have a full party of six.
Justy will give you a
Lum Berry and TM32 ( Double Team). Head over to Gateon Port for your interview with Acri.
Go over to
Acri's house, next to the Parts Shop. Depending on your answers, she'll give you either an Amulet Coin, a Quick Claw, or a White Herb. I recommend the Amulet Coin, as you can get the others at Mt. Battle's Poké Coupon Exchange. Answer "Yes" to all of Acri's questions, then head to the new location on the map.
Cipher Key Lair
Zook, the guy with the Shadow Zangoose from Gateon Port? He's here. Team Snagem has arrived to try and get inside the building. Zook doesn't let them and challenges Team Snagem Biden to a battle, in which Biden loses.
After a little talk about the
Snag Machine being sent to Team Snagem's leader, Gonzap, Zook notices you and battles you.
You don't have your
Snag Machine, so you can't Snag Zangoose…yet. Get rid of Zangoose first, because it is the most deadly of all of Zook's Pokémon.
Zook will blame you for losing. Because it's all your fault, right? When you try and leave, you get an e-mail from
Secc in ONBS.
Go back to
Pyrite Town and head to the ONBS building.
