Route 224 Guide
To get to Route 224 in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, you will need to first have the National Dex unlocked. Then head to the Victory Road cave and talk to the NPC that was blocking the path to the route. Make your way through the caves and onto Route 224.
To get the National Dex, you will need to have seen 150 Pokemon in the Sinnoh Pokedex (Manaphy is optional). You don’t need to catch them, just need to have seen them either in battle or via an egg hatching. Once you have that done, head to Sandgem Town and go to the Pokemon Research Lab and talk to Rowan. Professor Oak will appear and he will then give you the National Dex.
If you are missing any of the Pokemon in the Pokedex, check out this video on how to find them:
Once you have the National Dex, use the Fly HM to head over to the Pokemon League. Go south and travel down the waterfall, and head into the cave on the right. Head south in the cave, down the rock climbing section, to the left, and then left again to go across the small bridge that leads over to the NPC in purple. Go under the large bridge, and around the corner to talk to the NPC. They will verify that you have the National Dex and let you into the cave.
From here, it’s pretty complicated on how to get to Route 224, so check out this video:
