Blackfist City is broken up into two sections: the actual city itself and the Residential District. The Residential District resides to the south and connects with Route 315 while the city area is connected to Route 316 through a cliff to the northeast and Safari Zone 2 to the north. It is also home to the Blackfist Department Store and the seventh gym of the Vesryn Region. Later on in the game, the player may also take the train to Cephei Town, which is situated in the Aroma Region.
Before getting to Blackfist City itself, the player will need to pass through the Residential District by heading east and then north to enter the city area. Upon reaching the city the player encounters 3 potential obstacles.
Firstly, a rock resides in front of the cave on the cliff to the northeast, which prevents the player from progressing upward to Caspian City without finding a way to break the rock. In order to do this, the player needs to go into the Safari Zone and find TM94 Rock Smash. However, in order for the player to be capable of using Rock Smash to begin with, they must acquire the Kinetic Badge from the Blackfist City Gym.
When the player reaches the front doors of the gym in the northwest, another obstacle will present itself to the player: The Gym Leader, Demetri, is not present at his gym at the moment. In order to bring him back to the gym the player must go to the Blackfist Department Store in the southwest of the city and then travel all the way up to the rooftop of the building where they will see Demetri seated at a table. Speaking with him will cause him to return to his gym, which the player will now be able to enter. Once the badge has been earned, the player will be able to continue on their journey northward through Route 316.

Department Store EggsEdit
The Blackfist Department Store has four different types of eggs that the player can purchase, hatch, and then train as they see fit. See the Department Store's page for more details.
Blackfist Department StoreEdit
As mentioned before, Blackfist City is home to a department store where nearly every item imaginable can be obtained. From competitive battling items to healing items, EV reducing Berries, TMs and more, the Blackfist Department Store has something that will interest any trainer.
The second Safari Zone of the game resides in Blackfist City. Here the player will be able to obtain various different cave-related Pokémon as well as obtain TM94 Rock Smash and a Legendary Pokémon later in the game.
Though not a point of interest to the player upon first arriving in Blackfist City, after completing the Vesryn Region's plotline the player will be able to take the subway all the way over to Cephei Town in the Aroma Region, where a mysterious plague has started infecting some of the Pokémon in the region. The player will need to leave their Pokémon behind in the Vesryn Region before setting out for the Aroma Region and they will also be unable to access the Vesryn Region's PC until the source of the pandemonium has been nullified.
Blackfist City GymEdit
Blackfist City Gym is structured a bit like the Cinnabar Gym from FireRed and LeafGreen except that answering the quiz questions given to the player only permits them to continue further into the gym rather than allowing them to bypass the gym's trainers completely. The answers to the quiz questions can be seen below:
|True or False: The Ground type is weak to the Poison type.||False|
|What Pokemon are known as the "Creation Trio?"||Dialga, Palkia, Giratina|
