The house on the other side of the bridge has a unique type of battle. It's called an Inverse Battle, where all weaknesses and resistances are reversed. Grass-type moves are super-effective against Fire-type Pokemon, Water-type moves are super-effective against Electric-type Pokemon, etc. This leads to an interesting battle.
