Clair and her gym are by no means easy. The puzzle within the gym is fairly straight forward, but you can wind up having to repeat some of it if you take a wrong step.

Dragon-, Ice-, and Electric-type attacks and Pokemon are your friends here. Unfortunately, the only readily available Dragon-type attack is Twister in the Pidgey family. Thankfully, Ice Path will let you catch several Ice-types to make this gym a bit easier.

Due to the higher levels of Pokemon, you would do well to grind your way up to around Level 40 on average - it'll come in handy for moving on to the Elite Four as well. You may also find it useful, or necessary, to use the warp spots within the gym to quickly head out to heal.

Clair herself is a formidable opponent, with 4 Pokemon much stronger than those of the trainers you've previously faced. She also likes to use Hyper Potions. Lead off with an Electric-type to counter Gyarados. From there, if you don't have Ice- or Dragon-types available, stick to strong and fast Pokemon. All of Clair's Pokemon use attacks that can deal incredible damage, so letting them get any hits in will only make this battle much harder.

Following her defeat, you must surf out behind the gym into the Dragon's Den. Cross the whirlpool and work your way around to collect the Dragon Fang. Head inside through the southern end of the temple, and take the Elder's quiz. The answers are simple - for the first four questions, DON'T pick the answer that makes you sound like a heartless jerk. For the final question, select "Both."
