Points of Interest

  • If you bring both of the legendary roamers–"Tornadus" IconTornadus and "Thundurus" IconThundurus–to the shrine at the end, you can battle and catch the final member of the trio, "Landorus" IconLandorus .


To get to this rather elusive location, you must navigate the waterfalls and rivers along the west side of Route 14, until you reach an entrance near the south-west corner. This will require use of HM05 Waterfall , found in Route 18.

The Pokemon here are fairly unique and you can pick up some useful items (namely two TMs), so it’s definitely worth a visit. As usual, a couple of Pokemon trainers–children this time–are scattered around, so keep your guard up.

This area’s main attraction is the legendary Pokemon Landorus , who awaits at the shrine at the very end. But before you can encounter it, you must first possess the two legendary Pokemon Tornadus and Thundurus, which is no mean feat.

Only one of these Pokemon can be caught in your game: Tornadus in Pokemon Black or Thundurus in Pokemon White. Refer to the “Route 7 Revisited” page in our “Elite Four” section for all the details. As for the other legendary, you must trade with somebody who has caught it in the other version.

Without Tornadus and Thundurus, this little shrine is just a pretty decoration.
