Victory Road (B1F)

Where?

This is the Sinnoh one, the cave separating Route 223 from the Pokémon League HQ. Either Surf all the way up Route 223 from Sunyshore City and up the waterfall there, or Fly to the Pokémon League, use Waterfall to get down, and then get into the cave there on the right.

The "Inside" part is accessible after you get the National Pokédex; go down from the entrance over that bridge, use Rock Climb, go left and then up between the two large platforms. Turn left where the old man is and go up the stairs onto the platform on the left. Go down and right over the bridge onto the other platform, and then go around the platform there to find another cave entrance on the right wall that leads to the inside.

How to read this table

The bolded horizontal headings stand for the main condition that affects the following slots; the big cells on the left side describe which circumstances must apply for the rows they span to be active. The percentages tell you the chance of a Pokémon from this slot (row) appearing for any given wild encounter, provided the condition on the left holds.

Each condition (i.e. each bolded horizontal heading) always has the same number of slots active. Usually it's two, though the radio condition in HG/SS has four slots and tables can have any number of static slots combined under one blank condition (-) for less cluttered viewing. This is reflected in the slots usually being displayed in pairs, which except for the aforementioned HG/SS radio conditions always means that only one pair is active at any one time. (For the radio conditions, it's either two pairs or one quadruple.)

If all this confuses you, and I don't blame you, just set the conditions in the form on the right to what actually applies for you right now and press the Refresh Table View button, which will hide all the inactive slots and leave only the Pokémon you're actually going to be seeing. This will also recalculate the statistics at the bottom of the table accordingly.
