Pushing buttons to change gears and establish a path will lead you to Volkner. Since there’s only one path, the puzzle is straightforward. For Volkner, you will need to fight a number of Trainers. You will know that your progress is going in the right direction when Trainers keep coming your way.
There are barely half of Volkner’s Pokémon that can be classified as electric-type. This is what it has:
Raichu, level 46, electric
Ambipom, level 47, normal
Octillery, level 47, water
Luxray, level 49, electric
Luxray’s Ice Fang and Raichu’s Surf are two of the most powerful techniques against ground-type Pokémon. You can use Aurora Beam on Octillery to counter any grass-type Pokémon you may use against it, which is a move of the ice type.
Countering Volkner may be tedious due to his limited use of electric-types. Since he has two electric-type Pokémon, you’ll need to stay on your toes and deal with them swiftly if you don’t want them to attack you.
Fighting-type moves can be used with Ambipom while electric moves can be used safely with Octillery.
Here are some counters you may want to consider:
Ruin Maniac Cave (Route 214)
Route 212, Safari Zone
Route 210, 211

The HM Waterfall can now be used outside of combat, allowing you to scale any waterfalls you come across in the outdoors. Charge Beam is an electric-type attack that may also raise the user’s special attack, therefore he’ll offer you numerous copies of TM57. Stickers for your Poké Balls are also included.
