"Hello there, it's been just over a year now, hasn't it? How have you been doing? Welcome to my second walkthrough for Pokémon Unbound, which will include content from the v2.0.3.2 update. If you've read the Changelog then you know that there are a lot of big changes which have been made in since the initial v2.0 release and many of them will require the first portion of the walkthrough to be tweaked up here and there. For those of you who are picking up from where you left off in the previous update I'll indicate at the points where is a major change. Let's get right into it!

Huh, this is new - after the title screen, we get to do a little character customization. I dig the winter outfit our character is sporting, they look like Pokémon Rangers :) afterwards we're asked a series of questions to determine the difficulty settings for puzzles and battles then are informed about a hard level cap setting which can be switched on or off in the Options menu. I will be playing on the Difficult setting, if you are playing on another setting please make sure to get Trainers document file which is specific to your chosen setting. The Levels shown of Trainers will be their Minimum Levels.

We get into some history of this game's main region - Borrius. It was at war with the Kalos region, Kalos got the advantage until the Borrian king got some help from a dark force that used its powers of creating portals to send the Kalos army back home. Not done yet, the Borrian king sent his own army through those portals after the Kalos crew and waged a war on their turf. On the Kalos side we then get the story of the Kalos king AZ, Floette and the Ultimate Weapon which ended the war. Back in Borrius, the king had to deal with survivors who wanted compensation but he failed to help them out and so the survivors made use of that dark force to attack the kingdom. The king turned to the Legendary Birds for help this time: Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres. Their power combined with the Plates of Arceus to create a prison for the dark force and to seal its power. The powerless form of this creature (Hoopa) was taken in by the king and looked after by him and his descendants until..."

16 Years Ago

We get a cutscene showing an undentified man speaking to Hoopa, he says he is worried about the future and may not be able to protect Hoopa is a certain woman shows up and tries something. So this man thinks it would be best for Hoopa to hide in its Poké Ball which the man will send out to sea. If they don't end up meeting again, the man requests that Hoopa protects his son if he is in danger. After he dumps the Poké Ball into the water, the man is confronted by someone he has been expecting. Interesting, in the previous version he was speaking to Arceus.

15 Years Ago

On a beach somewhere we find another character who's having trouble catching Pokémon, how is he supposed to fulfill his grandfather's wish without one? He hopes for a sign and behold, Hoopa's Poké Ball appears. Praise Arceus :) and then in the next brief scene we see this character running after Hoopa before they are both caught by 2 groups of people, shady looking people on the left and some scientists on the right. Who could they be?

Present Day

We're in bed, and while we're snoozing along Hoopa appears and chucks us into a portal! What the...?? The portal sends us to a lab somewhere, it seems we're not the first one to have been sent here via space-time transport. A hooded figure in red has one of the Scientists knock us out and taken to a warehouse. Once we're there, Hoopa appears and tries to wake us up but that person from the beach scene shows up to stop it because we're out cold. We find out that Hoopa has been travelling around by means of this person's "Cube Space" to make up for not being able to use its Rings. This person is the same guy who found Hoopa on that beach previously and despite not being Hoopa's true "guardian", he is its Trainer for the time being. Not exactly a friendly Trainer too. After he leaves, we wake up and can move now. 

Pressing L enables/disables Auto-Run. Instead of the traditional Trainer Bag, in this game we have a Cube. Trendy :) check out the fancy-looking OPTIONS Menu, split into General, Battle and Audio Options. If you're not a fan of the Exp. Share function you can switch to Regular or Capped Gain. Once you're done with seeing all the menus, move all the way south then just to the right to find a Potion. I like that the Item's description pops up when you get one. Back up and as you head to the right you'll see someone going down the south corridor. Who was that guy? Those closed sliding doors require a Key Card with Clearance Level: 2 so just make a note of them for now. Before we go after him, continue going to the right until you find a small box between 2 blue containers, search it for a hidden Repel. At the top right end of this corridor is another Potion, after that go south after that unknown person. We'll see him confront a guard who has been ordered to keep him here and just to emphasize this, the guard lets out his Inkay to make the guy back off. He notices us, surprised to find someone else down here. Judging by our clothes he assumes that we're from a place called Frozen Heights and tells us that he's a new neighbour of ours - a neighbourly Rival to be exact when we get to give him a name. The first of many Rivals perhaps? Name him whatever sounds cool, I decided to call him Axelrod :) if any of you are fans of the show Billions then you know how it is xD. He's searching for his parents and had hoped that the people here might know something about them but clearlt that didn't work out. So we have to find a way out of here. Head to the north section where there's a cage among some boxes, Axel hears the sound of Pokémon from the cage. Free the Pokémon that are inside and choose one of them to be your Starter: 


BELDUM - The Iron Ball Pokémon
Level: 10
Type: Steel/Psychic
Ability: Clear Body
Moves Known: Metal Bash, Tackle, Flash
Item Held: Berry Juice

LARVITAR - The Rock Skin Pokémon
Level: 10
Type: Rock/Ground
Ability: Guts
Moves Known: Leer, Rock Throw, Sandstorm, Bite
Item Held: Berry Juice

GIBLE - The Land Shark Pokémon
Level: 10
Type: Dragon/Ground
Ability: Sand Veil
Moves Known: Tackle, Sand Attack, Metal Claw
Item Held: Berry Juice

Axel thinks we can use these Pokémon against the guard. Choose wisely because...

If you choose Beldum, Rival takes Gible. 
If you choose Larvitar, Rival takes Beldum.
If you choose Gible, Rival takes Larvitar. 

Decisions, decisions. When you've got your partner we go back to fight that guard for our freedom. Previously we could choose to have a Single Battle or Double Battle, now we just go straight into a Double Battle. Whoever this guard is, he belongs to a group known as the Shadows. 

Shadow Grunt
- Lv10 Inkay [Dark/Psychic]
- Lv10 Skorupi [Poison/Bug]
Prize: P640

Even though we got a couple of Potions, Axe is kind enough to heal your Pokémon with another one. Then he sends the guard packing and goes on ahead, we'll have our first battle against him when we get back home. Go through the exit.

SHADOW BASE

-1F-

More Grunts to be found in this corridor as you head south to the next exit, but Axe took care of them already so no trouble from them, nice. Just before reaching the exit we get another cutscene: 

In another area of the Base we see a mini experiment going on involving a Houndoom trying to burn a hooded person (??) and nothing happens to them (?!). The lady Scientist then explains to Houndoom's Trainer that the specimen is immune to extreme cold and heat, but not yet immune to electricity after the Trainer asks. A moment later that man in red from earlier (named Marlon) and the Grunt who was guarding us show up. Whatever plans these people have will now be pushed forward because their target is close by. No problem for Marlon, but he tells his boss about our escape. He says Axe didn't see anything important but we popped up in the lab and that won't sit well with another person named Fey. The boss doesn't want Fey finding out about the escape, especially now during this crucial part of the operation where they are expecting a package. They'll deal with us later. Marlon says he'll get the package and the Grunt can use the opportunity to make up for his mistake. 

Back to us, we've made it outside and the entrance to the Shadow Base closes shut behind us. Where are we?

WEST BORRIUS

[001] FROZEN HEIGHTS {An Island Town on a Frozen Lake.}

HMs Needed:Rock Smash, Cut. 

Places of Interest
- Log Pokémon Research Lab
- Your House
- Rival's House

Doesn't matter which way you slide onto the ice, you're headed south to the next landing and from there we reach town. Axelrod meets us and introduce us to old man Log, the resident Professor who studies Pokémon stats and capture rates. He's also Axe's guardian, for 13 years now after Axe's parents left him with Log. Now that we're here, it's time for that first Rival battle. Ready?

>>RIVAL BATTLE<<

Rival Axelrod
- Lv10 Starter
Prize: P400

Not a bad battle, even Log thinks so. Axe leaves and without anyone else to run errands for him Log asks us if we could do that. Our first task is to pick up a package for him from the Bellin Town PokéMart. That old classic parcel pick-up run for Professors xD. Log gives us a Repel, the Pokédex and 5 Poké Balls. He then suggests that we head home to see Mom, she's probably worried about us. After he leaves, we can look around a bit before going home:

The building just on the right is Axelrod's home, his sister Melony is there and she tells us that Axel is away on a journey to find out what happened to their parents. They haven't seen them since they were kids. If you check the TV you'll get a report about a Swarm that has appeared somewhere, pretty cool. South from the house is Log's Lab, speak to the Lab Aide on the left near the entrance and after saying Yes twice he'll tell us that he'll give us the "Effort Values/Individual Values" device/a.k.a the Stat Scanner after we have caught at least 50 Pokémon. If you are playing on the Vanilla difficulty you won't be able to get this item until the post-game side of things. The Porygon up top grants you access to the Pokémon Storage Boxes. 

To the north of town is the entrance to an underground highway but the way there is blocked by a tree we'd need to Cut. Our house is on the eastern side of town, there's a Trainer Tips signpost near it and it's important to note that in this game, those signposts play a major role so don't go rushing through places without reading them :) we find Mom in the main room, indeed she was worried about us but is glad that we're back safe and sound. Then she does what all Pokémon Trainer Moms do best - heal our Pokémon. Now that we're all rested up we can get on with that errand. Sadly though it seems that our father isn't around anymore, Mom believes he would be proud of us leaving home now. She gives us a component for our Cube - the Mission Log. Helps us keep track of any tasks we've been given to do, neat. Prof. Log's errand is added in as our very first Mission:

01 A HERO'S JOURNEY

Location: Bellin Town
- Get Prof. Log's package from the Bellin Town Mart!

Press START and then the Directional Right button to view the Mission Log section. The first display is for All Missions, Press L to see the others: Inactive Missions, Completed Missions and Reward Missions.

Mom also gives us the Super Cube's battle component, which will contain stuff like stat booster items and so on. We also find out what makes the Cube far more superior to the standard Trainer Bag - unlimited storage space! Wow, R.I.P. Trainer Bag concept. One more component from Mom, the Costume Box. It wasn't useful in the previous version but now it is :) change the colours of your character's current outfit anytime and hope that we'll get other cool costumes during our journey. After all that, head up to your room and boot up the computer, there's a Berry Juice in storage. Leave the house and enter the house just to the south from ours. Speak to grandma and hear some wise words from her about the Mission system. Grandpa is happy about us going on our journey and asks us to pick up an Antidote for him from the Bellin Town Mart, he hasn't been feeling too well. Say Yes to accept Mission 41 Neighbourly Assistance:

41 NEIGHBOURLY ASSISTANCE

Location: Frozen Heights
- Your neighbour needs your help! Bring him an Antidote from the Poké Mart to restore his health.

No problem, exit and continue south to Route 1.

[rt01] ROUTE 1 "Snowy Mountain Pass"

HMs Needed: Rock Smash, Rock Climb.

Pokémon Found
 
(Grass)
 Snorunt [Ice] <5% Snowball>>
 Vanillite [Ice] <50% Casteliacone, 5% Nevermeltice>
 Delibird [Ice/Flying]
 Minior [Rock/Flying] <5% Star Piece>

A lot of places have gotten a fresh redesign in this update, Route 1 is one of them. This time we'll find a Worker who stops us from continuing south because of an avalanche which has caused snow piles on the road, so he suggests we travel along the mountain path from the left side. As you head down along this new path, stay on the right side so that you'll reach a ledge that has an Item Ball below it. That's an Ice Heal. Continue south until you see a rock below a cliff, search it for a hidden Oran Berry (or check the screenshot of the location, I'll include screenshots for hidden item locations with this walkthrough). Get off the mountain path, you'll see Trainer Tips signpost #02 on the right. A little further down is the entrance to Icicle Cave and then Bellin Town. The old man by the cave entrance is the man we heard about from Prof. Log who will show us how to catch Pokémon. He'll do that after we get and deliver Log's package.

[002] BELLIN TOWN {A Quiet Town Nestled Deep in the Mountains.}


**HMs Needed:Rock Climb.

Places of Interest
- PokéCenter
- PokéMart

Let's have a look around before visiting the Mart: 

Trainer Tips signpost #03 is right there by the northern entrance of town. 

In the PokéCenter we learn that there are Chansey to be found in the wild that will heal your Pokémon if you're far away from the nearest PokéCenter. Upstairs is the Wireless Club and the Mystery Gift system (only available after you defeat the Pokémon League). 

According to what's written on the Articuno statue plaque, Articuno now resides in Frozen Heights. Noted for sure :) The Gentleman roaming near the PokéMart has a Pokémon Egg which will hatch into a Stunky, Skorupi or Glameow depending on your Trainer ID. While Stunky and Skorupi are available in the wild, Glameow is a Swarm Pokémon so this is a nice chance to get one of those Pokémon early, come back for it soon.

The man living in the southwest house gives us 5 Heal Balls. In the northwest house lives a man and his daughter, they've been having trouble with a Pokémon that keeps coming to steal food. The man isn't a Trainer so he can't fight off the thief, but perhaps we could-- before he makes his request, the Pokémon shows up - an Alolan Sandslash! It heads for the fridge, grabs some grub and is gone. The little daughter tried to stop Sandslash but ends up hurt. The man hopes we can help, this is Mission 67 The Food Thief:  

67 THE FOOD THIEF [completed]

Location: Bellin Town
- A mysterious icy Pokémon has been stealing food! Hunt it down and recover what was stolen.

When we step outside there's a brief cutscene showing the Sandslash leaving town and heading for Icicle Cave. Noted, we'll worry about that after completing Log's errand so let's enter the Mart. 

As soon as we enter the Mart we bump into some random fellow who is in a rush to leave. Eh? We'll then head up to chat with the Clerk and find out that Log's package has been picked up by that random fellow! Before we chase after him, talk to the Clerk again if you're looking to do some shopping:

Poké Ball P200    Ice Heal P250
Potion P300   Escape Rope P550
Antidote P100   Repel P350
Parlyz Heal P200

Remember to buy an Antidote for our neighbour. After exiting town we get a cutscene showing Marlon speaking with the Grunt from the Shadow Base, he confirms that he has the package and mentions meeting us. Marlon says he's going north of Frozen Heights to capture the target, while the Grunt must return to boss Zeph. Once we can move, head up along the eastern side of the route. That Grunt cleared the road while making his getaway xD, great job. You'll pass by a frozen pond with an Item Ball on the cliffs above it, we'll come back for it when we can scale rock walls. Hurry through Frozen Heights to the north side and watch Marlon's Cacnea Cut down the tree before he proceeds. Another cutscene follows:

We see Marlon with his crew of Shadow Warriors and with a few magical phrases he summons Articuno (!?). The Shadow Warriors restrain it, allowing Marlon to capture the Legendary with a Master Ball. Mission accomplished :/ on their way out, Marlon sees us but rather than face us he gets one of the Grunts to do that. Good old delegation... 

Shadow Grunt
- Lv9 Snorunt [Ice]
Prize: P320

And of course this was just to buy time, the other Grunts have escaped but this lady is kind enough to give us Log's package now that they got what they needed from it. Back to town and deliver the package. In it are goodies from Professor Oak, well, minus the Master Balls. After we tell Log what happened, he gives us another errand: in Dresco Town lives a friend of his who knows a lot about Borrius region's history, we must see him and inform him of what happened. Dresco Town is reached after getting through Icicle Cave. Log then gives us the Town Map and when we open it we see a yellow X on our next destination, nice. He also tells us about Borrius being divided into West Borrius and East Borrius, our PokéDex only covers Pokémon in West Borrius. This adds 2 new Missions, Mission 62 and Mission 69: 


62 THE WEST BORRIUS POKéDEX

Location: Frozen Heights
- It's a daunting task! See all Pokémon in West Borrius and report back to Prof. Log.

If you succeed in completing this Mission you will receive the Catching Charm. 

69 THE NATIONAL POKéDEX

Location: Frozen Heights
- As they used to say, you gotta catch 'em all! Travel around, and capture every Pokémon you can!

Log also tasks us with delivering Axelrod's PokéDex to him. Exit the lab, stop by our neighbour's house to give grandpa the Antidote. He tells us a little bit about our father and can see that we are following in his footsteps as a Trainer. To reward us for the Antidote, grandpa gives us a Gem whose type matches the type of the Starter we chose. Now our journey truly begins, exit town and return to the old man near the Icicle Cave entrance. Let him show you how to catch Pokémon and he'll give you a Quick Ball. Make a note of this man because watching him catch a Pokémon is a Daily Event. Afterwards step into Icicle Cave.

[rticc] ICICLE CAVE


**HMs Needed: Rock Climb, Surf, Rock Smash, Strength.

-4F-

Pokémon Found 
Zubat [Poison/Flying]
Makuhita [Fighting] <5% Black Belt>

Smoochum [Ice/Psychic] <Aspear Berry>
Bergmite [Ice]
Roggenrola [Rock] <50% Everstone, 5% Hard Stone>
Swinub [Ice/Ground] <50% Aspear Berry>

As soon as we enter, we're shown Sandslash breaking through the western wall. The only person we find here isn't a battling Ruin Maniac, he just has some advice about exploring Icicle Cave. Follow after Sandslash. 

-4F- (via Secret Entrance)

Pokémon Found 
Zubat [Poison/Flying]
Roggenrola [Rock] <50% Everstone, 5% Hard Stone>
Makuhita [Fighting] <5% Black Belt>
Drilbur [Ground] 
Mawile [Steel/Fairy] <5% Metal Coat>

We'll see Sandslash go through an exit on the northwest side. Move up and down the steps going east, on the right is a massive looking tablet. There's a message in Braille on the tablet, because what's a Pokémon game without stuff in Braille, eh? xD. 

Great, it's not too cryptic :) That Ruin Maniac from the previous area comes along to view it, thanks to Sandslash we've found what was a hidden section until now. He says there are more tablets like this around Borrius and after years of trying to decipher the messages he has a device called the Braille Converter to help in figuring out the secrets of these tablets. Accept his request to receive it. The message on this tablet says THE PLATE IS THE KEY. Yup, not cryptic at all xD.
Once we've solved the puzzles of each tablet we should come back to the Ruin Maniac for the reward of 5 Wishing Pieces. This is Mission 07 Am I Blind?:

07 AM I BLIND?

Location: Icicle Cave.
- Uncover the secrets behind the mysterious stone tablets!

Noted, now let's continue chasing after Sandslash. 

-4F- (Outside)

Pokémon Found 
Alolan Sandshrew [Ice/Steel]

This turns out to be Sandslash's den, where some Sandshrew were waiting for the food it brought. They notice us and Sandslash attacks. Can't be caught.

SANDSLASH (Alolan) - The Mouse Pokémon
Level: 12
Type: Ice/Steel
Ability: Snow Cloak
Moves Known: Bide, Defense Curl, Icicle Spear, Metal Claw
Item Held: Grip Claw

The man who gave us this Mission shows up, looking to get back the stolen food...but he sees now why Sandslash was taking his food. Because the Pokémon Rangers haven't been around to supply it with food, Sandslash had resorted to stealing. The man is willing to support Sandslash and its family and friends if it would become his Pokémon. Sandslash agrees and so begins the journey of a new Trainer :) then we receive our reward - TM56 Hone Claws. He also lets us know a bit about the first Gym that we'll reach, it's in Dresco Town and a move like Hone Claws will help us because it's very foggy inside the Gym. Good to know. Mission 67 The Food Thief, completed. Catch a spare Sandshrew, someone in Dresco Town will want to trade their Ducklett for one. Return to the first 4F area and go for the ladder.

If filling out the PokéDex will help him get stronger, Axe doesn't mind doing it. He's also looking for his parents, and perhaps he'll show them how much stronger he has become. For bringing him his PokéDex, Axe gives us a pair of Safety Goggles. He also tells us that he has already started his Gym Challenge run and just like in his home region of Hoenn there are 8 Gyms in Borrius. But he didn't have any luck in Dresco Town because his Pokémon were constantly being put to sleep by the Gym Leader's Pokémon. To counter this, Axe found the Safety Goggles. Clever boy haha. Our main Mission gets updated after Axelrod leaves. Continue south, we'll find the legendary Joey and then Trainer Tips signpost #06.

Youngster Joey

The item on the bottom left side of the frozen floor is a Super Potion. Not much of a puzzle, carry on south to the exit. As you've noticed, we'll definitely have to come back here later on for further exploration. Outside is Route 2 and a cutscene: 

Somewhere nearby, Marlon is laying out a new mission for a pair of Grunts: they are headed for Cinder Volcano where they will help someone named Ivory. Marlon doesn't want any problems this time after what happened previously, thanks to us, so he expects the Grunts to work discreetly.

Catch a spare Electrike, we'll meet someone much later who wants to trade his Pachirisu for a Manectric. Welcome to a redesigned Route 2, as soon as we arrive we are met by a Beauty who heals our team. She then says the Psychic next to her will teleport you to Dresco Town if you are in a rush to get there. How convenient :) but there are Trainers to be defeated so we'll skip the Psychic. Descend the steps on the left and follow that path all the way to pick up a Great Ball. Then go back and descend the south steps to find Foggy and Wayne.

Here we are, home of the first Borrius region Gym. Let's check this place out first and then go get that Badge. The first building we see upon arrival is Trainer House. 

TRAINER HOUSE

Here we can take on the 5 Trainers as many times as we like, you just have to step out and come back inside if you want to fight someone again. On the left side is a Porygon if you need PC Storage access. Each Trainer specialises in a specific Type. Kobe and Bram are Double Battlers:

Prize: P2040

At the center of town is the statue of Moltres. The Legendary Bird lives in Cinder Volcano. The Ace Trainer roaming behind the statue has some key information about Gems, most of the Gym Leaders in this region have a Pokémon that is holding one. But if you have a Pokémon that knows Incinerate, it can melt the Gem before it is used. 

In the house east from the statue, if you say Yes to the boy with the game he will assign Mission Don't Turn Off The Power. Save the world!

18 DON'T TURN OFF THE POWER

Location: Dresco Town
- Practise saving lives by saving the game at least 100 times.

Not one of the major Missions, but if you value Bottle Caps then you better get cracking on that saving :) he'll give you one. The old man next to him knows of our father Aros, the legendary Arceus Trainer. Sadly he doesn't know why Dad disappeared and wishes someone who knows could tell him. 

In the PokéCenter not only do we get some advice about the Gym but we also find a new character, not yet identified, who has heard that Gym Leader Mirskle isn't exactly alright upstairs. Something we should worry about...?

On the southwestern side, show the Beauty one of the High Friendship-evolution Pokémon from Route 2 (Azurill or Riolu) and she'll give you a Soothe Bell. The house on the right is home to Edmund, the man who needs that Alolan Sandshrew in exchange for his Ducklett (which will be holding a Sharp Beak). It knows Defog and is holding a Quick Claw. His wife will reward you with 3 Dusk Balls. The house just below is where Prof. Log's friend lives, at the moment his grandson won't let anybody in because the man is taking a nap. He suggests we challenge the Gym and also hints at Edmund if he hadn't met him yet. Check the tree on the right side of the house for a Rare Candy. Below the house is a fellow who has Mission 13 Basic Literacy for us which involves reading all 45 of those Trainer Tips signposts in full, yo: 

13 BASIC LITERACY

Location: Dresco Town
- Practice basic literacy by reading all (45) of the Trainer Tips signs. 

If you're keeping score at home, by now you will have read 8 Trainer Tips signs. 

In the house next door from Edmund's house we'll find a Researcher couple named Zygfried and Zygardia. They tell us that Zygarde cells have been appearing in Borrius, they can only be seen if you have a special Super Cube component installed. The Researchers tell us that Zygarde only appears when an ecosystem is in danger, so they are trying to figure out why this Pokémon from Kalos is here. We must find all the Zygarde cells and cores, say Yes to Researcher B and receive the component. Once you've collected at least 10% return to see Zygardia. This is Mission 70 The Powerhouse of The Cell:

70 THE POWERHOUSE OF THE CELL

Location: Dresco Town
- Collect the mysterious green cells that are appearing around Borrius!

Now that we can see Zygarde cells, there is some backtracking to be done so that we collect the ones we missed. Starting with the cells (#9) located near the Basic Literacy guy, then return to Route 2 and you'll see cells #7 on the right side of the beach. The next ones (#8) on this route are on the eastern side but we'll need Surf. In Icicle Cave, 3F, near Black Belt Ron are cells #5. Back in Bellin Town, cells #3 are behind the fence on the northeast side. On Route 1 are cells #2 on the southwest cliff above the frozen pool and in Frozen Heights we'll find the first cells behind our neighbours' house. That's all for now, hurry back to Dresco.

Across the bridge on the western side of Dresco is a portion of Route 4, move along the southern path to pick up an Awakening. A couple of Roughnecks are blocking access to the rest of the route, they're too busy thinking to let us pass. Fair enough xD, but we can go north from Dresco and maybe do some training before hitting the Gym.

Nice picnic spot :) head straight north onto the middle hill and speak to the Breeder, each day she'll give you a random Berry. There's an Aroma Lady in the northeast section with Mission 31 Honey Gather for us if you say Yes to her: 

31 HONEY GATHER

Location: Flower Paradise
- A big feast is coming up soon! Battle Pokémon in Flower Paradise and collect 3 Honey from them. 

The reward for getting her the Honey is TM62 Silver Wind. Head up the hill in the center, you'll find a Breeder who gives out 1 random Berry every day. Continue north until you get off the hill, you'll see Zygarde cells #11 on the left side. The north area is currently blocked off by an Ace Trainer: he says only Trainers who have proven themselves in battle are allowed through...and in our current form we are definitely not worthy. Dang. When you're done, let's return to town and prepare for the Gym. On the left side from the building there is construction going on of a bridge to an entrance to the KBT Expressway. 

[g1] DRESCO TOWN GYM

Leader: Mirskle - The Mellow Master of Flowers

The man is a hippy, either this is actual fog or...well, you never know haha. I'm getting memories of Snoop's Gym from Pokémon Clover. If you read the Gym statue plaque you'll notice one new name next to our Rival's name - Jax. Who could that be? The Gym Guide gives us that customary bottle of Fresh Water, although judging from those coughs he needs it more than we do, and lets us know that Mirskle uses Grass-types. He also has some advice for us to counter this fog. Then head up along the left side to meet our first Gym Trainer opponent Doobie. XD, whose mother named this child??

Youngster Doobie
- Lv14 Cherubi [Grass]
- Lv15 Oddish [Grass/Poison]

Move over to the right side and turn south, you'll barely spot Liam.

Camper Liam

- Lv14 Pansage [Grass]
Prize: P300

Then we find the man in charge of this hazy joint, he'll offer you some Rose Incense - apparently they're good for the soul, duuuude. Previously he offered Oddish Leaves xD, I wonder why he changed. Say Yes and after the first position Pokémon sniffs the leaves they'll suddenly feel tougher. Like, wow :) and now it's time to get funky, Double Battle style!

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Thanks to the Rose Incense, your first position Pokémon will have its Special Defense receive a nice boost at the start of the match. 
- Mirskle has one Super Potion.

Groovy, thanks to the Leaf Badge traded Pokémon will obey us until Lv30. The following items are now available at Marts: Super Potion, Awakening, Burn Heal and Escape Rope. Suddenly there's a raid by those Roughnecks we saw earlier, Mirskle calls them the Ferrothorns and we see the Gym crew hide by jumping into the pond. Hilarious. We're the only ones left when the Roughnecks reach this side of the Gym and one of them says that their boss Barbs won't be happy if they don't return with those boosters, which they were supposed to get from Mirskle. But no worries, Roughnecks mention that since they've taken over a place called Antisis another crew named the Terror Granbulls aren't there anymore to receive those boosters so it's all good. Then the Roughnecks leave and the fog clears. Well, that was interesting. Go back to the Gym Guide and get one more reward - a Grass Gem. 

Outside the Gym we'll see that grandson fly off, allowing us to finally visit Prof. Log's friend Arthur. If you watch his TV, you'll see the history special which we got as the opening cutscene of this game. He'll ask if you're well versed in Borrian history (watch that cutscene again if you need a refresh), say Yes and Arthur adds some new info to what we know so far: the sealed away power of the dark force can be released again if the Legendary Birds are brought together at a place called the Ruins of Void. He believes that's what the Shadow group is aiming to do and before he can mention the place where they could be targeting next, grandson JAX returns. Mystery solved. He says he saw some Shadows headed towards Cinder Volcano, which Arthur confirms as that next target, for Moltres. He tells Jax to fly over to Frozen Heights and bring back Prof. Log. 

Once Log is here, Arthur reveals that he was planning to send Jax to confront the Shadows because he has proven himself to be capable enough. Jax leaves. Log wants us to return home now that we've completed the errand but Arthur suggests we go on and see Jax in action, perhaps gaining some experience as a result. Log agrees with that idea and lets us continue.

After that, exit the house and get ready for our journey to the first portion of Route 4 (at the east end of the north path is a hidden Lemonade) and then Grimm Woods.

So he asks if we could team up with him...if you say Yes he'll tag along with us, playing the healer role and as far as battles go, mostly Double Battles all the way to the exit and only the top 3 Pokémon in your party are accessible.

Marlon can't believe he lost, but the operation succeeded anyway so he just leaves us with a warning and then exits with his Grunts. Jax suggests we return to Arthur's house and update gramps. After Arthur learns about what has happened he says that only Zapdos is left and we have to get it before the Shadows do. Jax is ready to go after Zapdos but Arthur has another task for him - to find the item which the Shadows need to seal away the dark force's power. A friend of Arthur's who lives on Route 9 knows where this item is. As for us, we are headed for Thundercap Mt. to save Zapdos. We'll reach Thundercap Mt. by going along the highway southeast from Crater Town. Our main Mission gets an update: 

Location: Crater Town
- Challenge the Crater Town Gym!

Prof. Log returns to Frozen Heights to let Mom know what's going on. Jax will give us a ride back to Cinder Volcano if you want one. Or you can say No (Jax will then give you 8 Repels) and since you're back in Dresco, return to the Researchers now that we've collected 10% of the Zygarde cells. This allows us to assemble a Temporary Beast. If you want to assemble it, make sure to have space in your party and be aware that any stat changes done to this beast will disappear when it is disassembled, just speak to the wife again to do that. The beast at this point will be Lv10, have the Aura Break Ability, and know Dragon Breath, Bulldoze, Bite and Haze. 

The place where Jax will drop us off is just outside the western entrance of Cinder Volcano, still on Route 4. Go back inside the cave to pick up a Super Potion. Outside there's a Porygon out here if you need access to the Storage Boxes. Trainer Tips signpost #11 below says we should speak to the Lapras here to help us scale down the waterfalls. Carry on south, don't cross the bridge just yet, you'll find an Ether in the grass below the tree. That Fisherman is Barney.

Fisherman Barney
- Lv19 Shellder [Water]
- Lv20 Basculin (Red-Stripped) [Water]

Cross the bridge, just southwest from there you'll see Zygarde cells #13 next to the grass below. Head north to face Crissy and Dale.

Check the green shrub on the upper left for a hidden Super Repel and we see another entrance into Cinder Volcano which is currently blocked by a Shadow Grunt, who just tells us to go away. Rude xD. Go back onto the bridge and ride Lapras to the south side.

Below him is Trainer Tips signpost #14 and then we reach Crater Town.

[004] CRATER TOWN {A Town built from Ash}

**HMs Needed:Cut, Rock Climb.

Places of Interest
- PokéCenter
- PokéMart
- Gym
- KBT Expressway
- Move Maniac's House

After you gain access to the Battle Frontier in the post-game, as soon as you arrive here you'll see 3 people on the left: 

- The Black Belt can maximise one of your Pokémon's EVs for 50 BP.
- The lady in the middle will change EVs/IVs in exchange for Bottle Caps.
- The Scientist can change Natures for 50 BP.

You'll find Stardust hidden in the following small rocks: 

-> Above the PokéCenter. 
-> Near the Beauty on the eastern side. 
-> Below the PokéMart. (Further south from the PokéMart, check the small rock to get a Star Piece)

The northwestern rock near the KBT Expressway entrance (and Zygarde cells #19) has a Star Piece. 

In the southeast corner of the crater, check the small rock for a Yellow Shard.

In the PokéCenter we find that white-haired man again, he has some information about the Gym Leader Véga. Check the right side of the bookshelf, there's a hidden path behind it, and it leads to a Lv20 Clefairy (holding a Moon Stone)! Catch it or defeat it, your call.

CRATER TOWN MART
Poké Ball P200     Parlyz Heal P200  Escape Rope P550
Potion P300    Awakening P250    Repel P350
Super Potion P700  Burn Heal P250
Antidote P100    Ice Heal P250

In the PokéMart speak to the Battle Girl, she didn't have much luck in the Gym because it's dark in there but she'll gives us TM70 Flash. Memories of Brawly's Gym are coming back... The Roughneck on the right will want to trade his Great Ball for one of your Poké Balls. He does trades like this once a day. 

In the house to the south of the Mart is a girl who can tell you which Swarm Pokémon can be found right now. Her father will give out Berries each day (depending on how many Badges you've got) after you show the girl the Swarm Pokémon that she mentions. 

The southeastern house belongs to the Move Maniac, just bring him Heart Scales for his services. In the post-game when the Battle Frontier is unlocked, you'll find his little sister here too. She teaches Egg Moves for 15 Battle Points each.

On the northwestern side, speak to the old man in the house there and we hear a story about our Dad Aros and Rayquaza saving the region from a meteorite. Makes me think of Naruto's dad Minato saving the village from the Demon Fox. A place called Valley City wasn't saved though but parts of the meteorite fell there. 

In the house on the southwest side of town is a man who is worried about his brother because he's been involved with a shady crew known as the Black Emboar. Say Yes to him and get Mission 61 The Black Emboar:

61 THE BLACK EMBOAR

Location: Crater Town
- Rescue a man's brother from the clutches of the "Black Emboar" in the KBT Expressway. 

He says we'll find his brother in the northern KBT Expressway. Hmm, might be a nice place for us to do some pre-Gym training. Next door is a locked house. There are 2 Shadow Grunts blocking access to the south route, nothing we can do about them except hear them mutter. When you're ready, let's check out the KBT Expressway.

Turns out Boss James ain't so bad after all, he even goes as far as changing the gang name to Black (Your Name here) :) congrats, you have yourself a gang now. We also find out that James is the brother we came here for! Plot twist and a half haha, we return to the house with him and watch the brothers argue for a bit before James decides to move with the gang to Antisis City, given that a previous gang (the Terror Granbull) is gone from there now. He also makes us a member of the gang and gives us a Motorcycle! Nice. James leaves his brother behind and the brother gives us TM98 Work Up. Another Mission completed. 

If you go back to where we found James, you'll see the first of 2 junctions. The first one leads to Dresco Town (along the way you'll meet the Grass Gem Family member, she teaches Power Whip for 4 Grass Gems). North of that first junction is the Dark Gem Family member, give him 3 Dark Gems to learn Crunch. The second junction goes west to Blizzard City but we need Rock Smash. The tunnel road continues north then east to Frozen Heights, along the way we'll meet the Ice Gem Family member who teaches Triple Axel for 3 Ice Gems. That's all for now, prepare for the Crater Town Gym. 

[g2] CRATER TOWN GYM

Leader: Véga - The Ever-following Shadow

It's a Dark-type Gym, no wonder it's so...dark here :| makes sense, well played xD. The Gym Guide is on the left. Get that Fresh Water from him and we find out that battles here are affected by negative emotions of Trainers that struggle here. At the end of each turn damage is dealt by these emotions, but only Dark-types, Ghost-types and Pokémon with the Abilities Magic Guard, Unaware or Oblivious are immune. To reach Véga we just have to navigate our way through, either by avoiding being spotted (otherwise you'll be sent back to the entrance) or engaging the Gym Trainers in order to brighten up this place. Let there be light! Go all the way to the right from the entrance then up to find the first Gym Trainer, Dixon. 

Youngster Dixon
- Lv21 Nuzleaf [Grass/Dark] 
Prize: P352

Above from him is Dilweed. Who..?

Scientist Dilweed

Back to the entrance area and head up, follow the corridor to the left but stop before going further left because there's a Lass and a Ninja Boy running back and forth in that next corridor, if either of them sees you you'll be teleported back to the entrance. Just make good timing and you'll reach the western corridor, but there's a Roughneck and another Trainer (Burglar?) in the north corridor. If they see you, you'll just be teleported to the top end of the western corridor. This one is rather tricky because after getting past those two, you'll reach the eastern corridor which is occupied by a Camper and then a southern corridor that has a Cameraman, he's the final obstacle. If the Camper sees you, back to the west side corridor but if the Cameraman sees you, you just teleport to the bottom end of the Camper corridor. Eventually we reach Véga's room, phew. Thanks to the atmosphere of this town, he has managed to channel enough of his dark energy into this place. Not good. And he just had to look like an Agent from The Matrix xD, seriously not good.

Traded Pokémon will now obey us up to Lv40 and we can now use Cut, great :) New Mart Items on sale: Great Balls (of fire and brimstone) and Super Repels. Receive a Dark Gem from the Gym Guide before stepping out to witness a cutscene: 

Those 2 Shadow Grunts on the south side of town have received news about their target being on the move, so off they go...

Back to us, you'll notice there's a guy standing near the skinny tree by the Valley Cave opening in the town crater. He tells us that the opening leads to Route 6, Route 7, Frost Mountain, Route 8 and then Blizzard City. That's quite the shortcut there but noted. Go to where the Shadow Grunts were standing and watch as we're suddenly captured! What the f--

We are taken back to Cinder Volcano, this time in another area of 1F, where we meet Ivory and Boss Zeph. He knows about how we ended up at their lab and found out about what they've done, so we must be gotten rid of. He has Ivory step up to face us, while Hoopa appears and nobody notices...

Hoopa goes back under and Zeph is disappointed by Ivory's loss, that's the second Admin we've defeated now. But Ivory reminds him that she's a scientist not a battler, but Zeph won't let this slide. He faces us next, with only Houndoom by his side. One on one with the Boss himself, this early in our adventure? Drat...

Mega Evolution this early? Wow. Zeph compliments our skills, adding that he wished his son had the same strength. Ivory then cuts in to tell him that Marlon has gotten in touch and has finished his investigation of Jax. Now Zeph knows who Jax is and the identity of his famous grandfather. A sudden quake happens and a Grunt hurries into the room to report that a monster has appeared below from out of nowhere. Zeph orders the other Grunts to deal with that monster and protect the Shadow Warriors, Ivory can join them after healing their Pokémon. Zeph does not want that woman Fey to find out if anything were to happen to the Shadow Warriors. He has no use for us so we are free to go. Zeph doesn't believe Arthur will speak to Fey about this anyway. After warning us to stay out of the Shadows' business, Zeph heads to the floor below and Hoopa appears next to us. Into another portal we goooo....

We pop up back in the KBT Expressway tunnel, to the surprise of a Hiker nearby. After he finds out what happened to us, he tells us that a part of the ceiling fell and that has blocked the road to Thundercap Mt., we would need HM Rock Smash to clear that. The Hiker doesn't have it but a friend of his in Blizzard City does. Fortunately the Hiker has another HM that we need now, HM01 Cut. Fantastic :) and our main Mission gets updated: 

Location: Blizzard City
- Head through Valley Cave and make your way towards Blizzard City!

Go north to exit the tunnel. Now that we got Cut, there's some backtracking to be done before we go through Valley Cave. 

ROUTE 5

- There's a skinny tree just outside town, above Youngster Calvin. After cutting the tree go a few steps until you see two trees with a shadow between them, that leads to a Hidden Grotto. In there we find a well and just before we jump in, a Trainer named Ginger shows up and can explain what's up: the well is a Raid Den and once a day you get to fight a strong Pokémon for a chance to catch one in each den. The Pokémon are in Dynamax form and can only be caught after they are defeated and returned to normal size. Please check the Unbound General Guide document for the Raid Den Pokémon information. When you're done exit the Hidden Grotto and continue east along the path, you'll find Greg.

There's a hidden Moon Stone a little further along the path, see the screenshot for the location. The path carries on to a right side turn which is part of Route 13, make a note of this little lane for much later. At the end of it are Zygarde cells #55. Back to Route 5, continue up and jump down the ledge to pick up TM09 Bullet Seed.

Any Trainers who want to travel through there will be made to pay a toll! What kind of scumbaggery is this?? One of the Goons spots us and tells us to leave.

So we go west onto Route 7 and into a cutscene: 

Shadow Admin Ivory is telling some Grunts that she has received orders from Boss Zeph - they are to tighten up security on Route 9 after Jax was seen flying over the area. Ivory plans to set up a psychic barrier around Route 9 and instructs the Grunts to guard the Gate. To set up that barrier, Ivory will need to reach the peak of Frost Mountain.

Rival Axelrod attempts to stop Ivory but the Admin sends out her Alakazam and with one Psychic attack, knocks Axe back and carries on. Vicious. Just up ahead is Trainer Tips signpost #17, once you can move go on to help Axelrod out. Despite the attack he seems to be in good form, with his PokéDex upgraded and everything thanks to Prof. Log's sister. She lives in Blizzard City, her upgrading has put the Dex Nav function into Axe's PokéDex to help him locate rare Pokémon. Lucky bastard haha. We tell him about our mission to get Rock Smash, but as far as he's concerned we've just been playing hero and he's gotten stronger. Round 2 vs our Rival, here we go.

We're finally here, at last. In the first building we can enter, speak to the Juggler to receive TM118 Aurora Veil. The Black Belt living on this floor teaches Ice Punch in exchange for 2 Blue Shards. On the next floor we find out from the Youngster that there's someone in town who gives away a VS Seeker. The woman living with him needs help finding her brother, this is Mission 12 Bad Babysitter:

12 BAD BABYSITTER

Location: Blizzard City
- A young boy in a Pikachu costume has run away from home to Route 8! Find him, and bring him home safely. 

We're going back to that small area south of Battle Girl Jessica, the one with the skinny tree. That's where we find the brother, Willy. Take him back home and receive TM27 Return from his sister. 

Head to the southwest side of town, enter the building found there. On first floor speak to the cooking mom each day if you have the type she asks for. In exchange she'll let you choose a Berry. Her husband shares some information about a hidden forest to the east from the city, rumour has it that it is home to a powerful Pokémon. Noted. On the next floor is the Ace Trainer who gives us the VS Seeker. 

Past that building is the PokéCenter, there's a Staraptor outside that can fly you back to Crater Town. In the PokéCenter show the Breeder a Pokémon that can evolve and receive an Eviolite. We learn that the resident Gym Leader Alice uses Flying-type Pokémon, despite the location. Exit and let's explore the rest of town, but first a cutscene: 

We see Admin Ivory communicating with Boss Zeph, she tells him that she has set up that barrier around Route 9 from here. Zeph instructs her to return to Route 9. Ivory is about to go through the KBT Expressway tunnel but stops to freeze the entrance just in case Rival Axelrod is following her. 

Right after the cutscene ends turn left and go behind the buildings, you'll find a Revive behind the PokéCenter. Once we're in the middle of town enter the building on the west side, speak to the little girl on the first floor - that's Alice's daughter Alicia, she's the person looking to trade her Electrode (holding an Amulet Coin) for an Onix. If you get this Electrode, hold onto that Amulet Coin or put it in Storage you have to because you'll need one to complete a post-game Mission. On the next floor we learn a bit about this city's origins, which involve Aros. 

There's a Battle Girl in the Mart who wants to see an Eevee, she'll give you an Ice Stone if you have one in the party. In the building in the middle of town, first floor, speak to the woman to receive Mission 43 Nine Tails of Snow:

For putting on a fine battle, Candice gives us an Ice Gem. Also found on this floor is Prof. Log's sister Natasha, she has been expecting us and if you've caught at least 15 species of Pokémon she'll do the upgrade for the ol' Dex :) then speak to her assistant for instructions. The young lady in the kitchen is Ayla, this region's PC Storage wiz. Bill's system allows for 420 Pokémon to be stored but Ayla's system can take up over 700. Somewhere back in Kanto a wild Bill wept xD. 

Outside the building speak to the guy nearby to get a Sharp Beak. If you carry on north you'll reach the KBT Expressway entrance and see Ivory's fine work. The Worker near the entrance is looking to train his Pokémon if you're up for it.

You can battle him again and again. On the left side of the entrance are Zygarde cells #29. Enter that building on the right side, first floor is where we find the Rock Smash man. Finally. Now we just need the resident Badge. His grandmother gives us Mission 58 Sweet Pie:

Huh, is this the powerful Pokémon we heard about before? Exit the nest and continue west until you can turn south and then to the right to find a Snowball. Go all the way up to the northwest corner then go east until you step into grass with a bare spot, check it for an Aguav Berry. Turn south after that, we'll reach a frozen pool. Slide onto the ice from the south edge, then down, right and up to get the Ice Stone.

Just after clearing the road you'll soon meet the Flying Gem Family member who teaches Brave Bird in exchange for 4 Flying Gems. Return to Crater Town and enter the KBT Expressway from the south side of town. 

After clearing the road we are at a junction. Going west leads to a Shadow Grunt roadblock, that road leads to Tehl Town. Head east to meet the Ghost Gem Family member, she teaches Poltergeist for 4 Ghost Gems and then the Normal Gem Family member who teaches Body Slam for 3 Normal Gems. After that we reach another junction, the road going east is bound for Epidimy Town but there are boulders in the way. Continue south to the exit, we're just in time for a cutscene: 

Jax and Staraptor are battling Ivory and Alakazam, but they fail to make Ivory lift the Route 9 barrier and Alakazam forces Jax out of the way before Ivory leaves, going back to Route 9. Erm, welcome to Fallshore City everybody...

Move on down and we meet up with Jax after his unplanned swim, he's alright at least. Even though we're on a mission to Thundercap Mt. Jax hopes we can help him out on Route 9, say Yes (saying No just makes him ask again). He says he'll find another way to reach Route 9 from Tehl Town, then remembers that we'd need to go through Route 10 to get to Tehl Town and so he gives us HM...no, a Max Repel. 

After Jax leaves, turn right and go behind the buildings all the way to Zygarde cells #39. Behind the Mart is a Heart Scale and the Beauty roaming near the Mart tells us that there's an underground passage leading from Tehl Town to Route 9. Good to know :) In the house next to the Mart is an old woman who'll give you a Togepi Egg.

In the PokéCenter we learn that Normal is the Gym type here, a man named Mel is the Gym Leader and at the moment he isn't around. Enter the house that's just east from the Gym, on the first floor speak to the Picnicker to learn how Pokémon evolve. The guy by the stairs gives us a Link Stone. On the next floor there's a little girl who wants to see a Happiny, she'll give you an Oval Stone if you show her one. The Super Nerd will give you an Everstone if you show him a Pokémon that can't evolve. The Worker tells us how to evolve Pikachu into Alolan Raichu. Along the southeast cliff below that house is a Lemonade. 

Below the PokéCenter is an open air market place where we find the following items for sale:

Further down from Inverse Battle House is Mission HQ. Speak to the Ranger for a formal explanation about Missions and if you've completed at least 5 Missions by now he'll give you the Trainer Catalogue. Very cool device, showing all the Trainers we have encountered, those we haven't met yet and their general locations. His task for us involves defeating all the Trainers who are listed in it, this is Mission 42 No Survivors:

42 NO SURVIVORS

Location: Fallshore City
- Leave no survivors. Use the Trainer Catalogue and battle every Trainer!

Succeed and you will receive either a Latiosite or a Latiasite depending on your character's gender. Bring that Mega Stone and Latios to the Pokémon League. Take a few steps away from the building and a powerful presence is felt...before Lv40 Latias appears. It comes holding a Soul Dew and knows Dragonbreath, Wish, Mist Ball and Zen Headbutt.

* 20 completed Missions gets you your first Legendary Type: Null 
* 45 completed Missions and Latios will start roaming the region. 
* 65 completed Missions gets you the Shiny Charm, which increases the chance of encountering Shiny Pokémon in the wild. Afterwards the Ranger says that any more Missions that you complete will just be counted as bonus material.

- A little Tuber girl is missing! Track her down, and return her safely to her worried mother. 

Head south of town to the beach, the Tuber Girl is standing along the south shore. She says her mom left her there but she is willing to return home now, then from nowhere a random gust of wind blows the girl away! Who is this girl, Dorothy from Wizard of Oz xD?? Go back to her mother, she says she believes that the wind couldn't have sent her beyond the city limits so we must continue searching. The girl is now just outside the house where we got the Link Stone, speak to her and watch as she's blown away again. This time she's at the spot where we found the Zygarde cells, and just as she tries to hold onto us she's gone again...gone back to the first spot. Things seemed to have calmed down now until she's off again. She's just outside the Mission HQ now
and her mom comes out and is finally reunited with the girl. For our efforts we get a Power Belt...and then see a brief scene of mother and daughter turning out to be a pair of Ditto. Eh, what the heck was that xD?? 

Return to the beach and head over to the east side to find Elliot and Zygarde cells #40.

**NOTE: If it's raining, the only person you'll find outside the Mission-giving old man. You'll have to come back here when it's not raining to meet the other people. 

In the first house make a note of the Battle Girl Saige, she'll trade her Hitmontop (holding Protect Pads) for a Lickitung. Her husband is the Strength man we heard about, we just need the Fall Badge from the Fallshore Gym for it. 

Above the house is a woman who'll give you 3 Ultra Balls. 

In the house next to the Mart speak to the Picnicker to receive a Rocky Helmet. The Camper tells us about the other Thundercap Mt. entrance that's in Antisis City but he doesn't recommend we make use of it. Behind that house is a Nugget. Near the KBT Expressway entrance is a Dire Hit. Inside the Expressway is the Psychic Gem Family member, teaches Psychic Fang for 3 Psychic Gems. 

Next to the Zapdos statue is Trainer Tips signpost #23. There's an old couple that lives next to the statue, Aros tasked couples like them with keeping special items. This couple has a Master Ball and they will give it to a Trainer who shows them Hoopa. Another couple lives on Route 9. The item outside the house is a Full Heal. To the south of the house is a building, search the right side edge of the dirt road below that building for a PP Up (or see screenshot). Next door to the couple is the Good Rod Fisherman's place. The old man roaming outside the PokéCenter gives us the Mission 30 Home for a Hobo: 

30 HOME FOR A HOBO

Location: Epidimy Town
- A poor old man needs a new home! Search Borrius for any and all indoor homes available. 

I'd thought maybe the locked house in Crater Town would be the place but nothing happened when I went back there. Above the PokéCenter are Zygarde cells #43. West of the PokéCenter is the Move Deleter's home. Check between the 2 benches next to the house for a Nest Ball. To the west of the house, you'll find a Gentleman seated on a bench and after talking to him and sitting next to him you'll find one random status healing item. In the house south from the PokéCenter speak to the Hiker's wife to receive 3 Max Repels each day. South from there is the Thundercap Mt. entrance, just make a note of it for now and let's return to Fallshore City then west to Route 10.

Location: Auburn Waterway

After this guy's caught, the Policeman says we should meet back on Route 10 so we can figure out where the boss is. Once we're there, the Policeman wonders if maybe the boss returned to Antisis City...but then he suddenly appears, Boss Gruff!

Like a true villain Gruff evades the good guys by leaving to catch a ship that'll take him to East Borrius. The Policeman tells us he'll contact his Seaport City colleagues to watch their port for Gruff. Our reward for the work is TM106 Smart Strike and another Mission done. Return to where we found Painter Leonardo and head southwest to see a cutscene: 

Jax and a crew of Shadow Grunts are having a war of words. As long as the barrier is still in place the Grunts aren't going anywhere, so Jax goes off to look for the underground passage.

In the Mart you'll get a Water Stone from the blonde man. 

The Name Rater lives in the south house.

There's a woman roaming near the town signboard, she'll give you 5 Quick Balls. She also tells us that one's Prof. Log's Aides lives here -> in the western house. The lady researcher is that Aide, she gives us the very handy Dowsing Machine if you've caught at least 30 Pokémon. I really hope other games will have ItemFinders that are similar or better because this was well made. The woman's husband gives out Mission 53 Seasonal Research: 

53 SEASONAL RESEARCH

- Help a researcher study seasonal form changes by bringing him a Sawsbuck in its Spring Form. 

After showing him all 4 seasonal forms of Sawsbuck he will change the Nature of one team member for free at first and then going forward he'll be changing P50000 per change. 

North of town, on the western side you'll find a Big Mushroom and Zygarde cells #33 in the northwest corner. In the KBT Expressway there's the Bug Gem Family member, bring him 4 Bug Gems to learn Megahorn. Back to town and enter the northeast house, it leads us to the Underground Passage. 

[rtup] UNDERGROUND PASSAGE


The first person we meet here issues out daily racing challenges: get to the end of the tunnel in 10 seconds or less to receive a prize. You can run there or use the Motorcycle. As you head up the tunnel you'll find a Collector, he gives us Mission 19 Dowsing Wizard:

- Scavenge the region and find at least 150 hidden items. 

He'll reward you with a Gold Bottle Cap for this. Make use of the Dowsing Machine here, you'll find an X Attack, X Defend, X Speed, X Accuracy, X Sp. Attack, X Sp. Defense, Dire Hit, Ether, Parlyz Heal, Awakening, Ice Heal, Burn Heal, Antidote, Hyper Potion and Guard Spec.

Outside, we're in the Autl Woods portion of Route 9. Above the house is a Hyper Potion. Head south to exit this small area, in the next one check the small rock for a Net Ball then continue down to the next exit. Now we've passed the barrier and have arrived in the section of Route 9 where we can deal with the Shadow Grunts and maybe Ivory too :) here we go.

The Grunt enters the house to warn Ivory. If you've been teaming up with Jax he'll follow after the Grunt and now you have a chance to prepare before going in. Inside we find Ivory, few more Grunts, a pair of Scientists who are helping the Shadows, Arthur's friend Dr. Harth and his wife. Jax is confronting Ivory, he won't let the Shadows leave because they've taken the Prison Stone - the item needed to seal or unseal the dark force. But Ivory explains that they just need the Prison Stone for other reasons instead of bringing darkness to the region. No choice this time, we are forced to team up with Jax.

The pair of Gabite that were combined with the Dr. Harth and his wife flee and the couple is back to normal now.

Jax tells us to reach Thundercap Mt. while he returns to update Arthur. The Shadows must not capture Zapdos! But we'll require Strength to make it through the mountain, so Jax suggests we meet up with Mel in Tehl Town and after we get the Badge we'll find Jax in Epidimy Town.

[g4] FALLSHORE CITY GYM

Leader: Mel - He with Good Grace and Good Looks

Yes indeed this is the Normal-type Gym but it comes with a twist - the battles here are Inverse Battles. The Gym Guide tells us to come stocked up because until we reach Mel there's no way back. When you're ready drop down the hole on the left.

Finally, use of Strength has been granted :) traded Pokémon will obey us up until Lv60. Ultra Balls are now available in Marts, excellent. Get that Normal Gem from the Gym Guide and get out of here. 

Outside the Gym, Mel stops us and shares what he has heard about people in Epidimy Town being kept from exploring Thundercap Mt. by some shady individuals who are also there to keep us from entering too. Mel is planning to go to Epidimy to sort this out and hopes we'll get back there soon so he gives us HM02 Fly. Great stuff, we'll join him soon but we can move boulders now so let's put that new HM to work.

On the other side we find a Red Shard, the entrance to a Raid Den and a hidden Sun Stone from the small rock below the entrance. In the Raid Den chamber is a Charizite X.

Turn left at the town entrance, cut the skinny tree and go on to get an Awakening. There are two houses just north from the entrance, enter the right side house and receive 2 Red Shards from the old man. His housemate teaches Fire Punch in exchange for 2 Red Shards, how convenient :) In the left house lives Tim, the person who wants a Manectric for his Pachirisu (holding an Old Gateau). 

Speak to the Scientist outside the Dream Research Lab, he'll give us a Dream Mist capsule and some information about how to get some more. In the Lab you'll get TM85 Dream Eater from the lady Scientist seated at the big table. 

Check the green shrub near the PokéCenter for a Repeat Ball. There's a Teleporter in the PokéCenter for when you need a quick way down the mountain, he'll send us back to the bridge on Route 11. If you talk to some of the people around here you'll find out about this town's history of nightmares and about Darkrai being involved. There's a boy struggling with a nightmare in the house next to the Mart, make a note of him. Behind the house is an Ether. The Tarmigan Inn is locked, makes me wonder if we'll find a way into it later on. We can't enter Tarmigan Mansion either because some cleaning is going on inside, we'll come back later. Back to Epidimy then...

Outside the Thundercap Mt. entrance we'll find Mel confronting one of the Shadow Grunts. One Body Slam from Miltank sends that Grunt flying and now we can get to work cleaning up Thundercap Mt.. Get ready because we could be in there for some time.

Marlon sends out his Krookodile to weaken Zapdos before he catches it. The next target for the Shadows now is the Ruins of Void. We show up to confront Marlon and although he's surprised to see that we've made it through the other Grunts, he is confident about us not stopping him this time because he's got the 'Dos.

Another loss for Marlon and this one stings because he tells us that he won't be going after Zapdos anymore. He then releases it back into the wild and leaves. Wow, so is that the last time we'll see him? Because I can't imagine he'll go back to Boss Zeph and explain his way out of this. The main Mission gets updated: 

Location: Epidimy Town
- Meet up with Jax in Epidimy Town to discusss your next move!

Alright, but before we leave...do you remember that ladder on 2F which had the snoozing Grunt? Let's find out where it leads. 

Another section of 3F. Head south then descend the stairs on the left and smash them rocks - there's a hidden Parlyz Heal. Back up the stairs and cross the east bridge to Earl.

Make your way back to the area before the bridge which leads to Earl and go southeast, in between bridges use the Dowsing Machine to find a hidden Wacan Berry. On the other side we find Picard. 

Shocker Picard

Proceed to climb the ladder above him. 

Another area of 4F. Go all the way east then north to see a Nerd having trouble with his Electivire, it won't go back into its Poké Ball and almost seriously injures the Nerd. We're then asked if we should help him or not. Saying No just makes us turn away, the scene will start again when you try to move into that area. Say Yes and we get Mission 71 The Rogue Electivire: 

71 THE ROGUE ELECTIVIRE

Location: Thundercap Mt.
- A nerd's Electivire has gone rogue! Find it in Thundercap Mt. 4F and bring it back to the nerd.

We go up to face Electivire but it runs off. The Nerd asks us to bring Electivire back to him. Head all the way south then west, we'll find Electivire in the southwest corner and a moment later it jumps us!

Return to the starting point of this area and climb the stairs on the left, on the other side of the bridge is Miguel.

- Lv32 Elekid [Electric]
- Lv32 Shinx [Electric]
Prize: P1280

Continue on the northwest and smash them rocks before pushing the boulder into the hole and dropping in after it. That's just how the first part of the puzzle done, we'll need Surf to complete it so that we can reach the switch that's in the northeast section. Use an Escape Rope or take the long way back outside.

We meet Jax and update him on Zapdos. It's great news that one of the Legendary Birds is free but the Shadows still have the other two. Jax tells us to meet him in Dehara City after visiting Tarmigan Mansion. We must head north from Tarmigan Town onto Route 12 then Dehara City. Remember to see the Nerd in the Epidimy Town PokéCenter, although he's got bad news - that Scientist took off with his Electivire after she lied about wanting to see it :/ so no reward yet until Electivire is returned. The Mission gets updated if you say Yes: 

Location: Seaport City
- A nerd's Electivire has been kidnapped! Head to Seaport City to rescue it from the the thief. 

Unbelievable, we'll deal with that woman when we reach Seaport. For now let's return to Tarmigan and take on Gym 4.5

Shades of Pokémon Mansion, not bad. No surprise to find the Gym Guide here, free Fresh Water and all.

Jump off that ledge and land in the basement. Before speaking to Maxima go on up to get those Zygarde cells #46 and press the statue switch. Then it's time to acquire the power of Mega Evolution!

We then receive the Mega Keystone and can choose the accessory to put it in, that's pretty sweet. When you see the Mega Symbol during battles, press START to trigger Mega Evolution. Maxima also gives us an Altarianite. I don't know about you but to me Mega Evolution still comes off as Pokémon's response to Digimon's Digivolution xD or maybe someone at Nintendo or GAME FREAK or The Pokémon Company was just a big Digimon fan and wanted to try out Digivolution in the Pokémon universe :) think about it - both styles of evolution are temporary and require certain conditions to be in place for them to work (you can also throw in the stuff about Trainers having a strong bond with their Pokémon and so on, same thing with Tamers and their Digimon). You never know...

Return to 1F's northeast side, a hidden entrance has appeared near the Gentleman. It leads to Zygarde cells #45 and the Tarmigan Town Raid Den. On the way out speak to the Gym Guide and get a Fairy Gem. Outside of the Mansion go behind the building, use the Dowsing Machine to locate a an Adrenal Orb. Prep up if you need to then step into the Gate. Nice information about Z Moves from the guy in the Gate :)

Afterwards Prof. Log shows up, sounding as if he could've run all the way here from home xD, and he gives us HM03 Surf! Nice. Axel tells him that he has made some progress in the search for his parents and has tracked the Shadows to the Ruins of Void, which he can reach now thanks to HM Surf. Prof. Log tells us that an old colleague of his is in Dehara City, he researches the Ruins of Void, and Jax has gone to Dehara to meet him. We have to see this colleague for directions to the Ruins. After Axe and Log leave use the Dowsing Machine to find a Max Repel near the route signboard. Descend the stairs to meet Steve. 

Collector Steve
- Lv37 Togedemaru [Electric/Steel]
- Lv36 Goomy [Dragon]
Prize: P1568

After we pass Steve there's a cutscene: 

Marlon appears to be on the same beach where Hoopa's Poké Ball was picked up. He wonders what to do now, and even thinks this whole operation being done by the Shadows has gone off the rails. Maybe it's time he went back home to his childr-- the unknown Grunt who got Hoopa's Poké Ball suddenly appears and uses some piece of technology to teleport (?) Marlon away. Wow, who is this guy? Now that Marlon is out of the way, he says he'll continue from where Marlon failed. And the plot thickens...

Above Steve is Trainer Tips signpost #25. Descend the stairs and carry on southwest, use the Dowsing Machine to find a hidden Revive on the flowers. That's Oliver in the grass, there's a Raid Den entrance and above him is a Link Stone.

Another cutscene: 

That Grunt is with Hoopa, it has brought him a Bag containing another Pokémon instead of Zapdos. He doesn't want that Pokémon so Hoopa summons Zapdos and the Grunt captures it. With Zapdos in hand, the Grunt now has to take it to Boss Zeph so he can perform the unbinding. Then he has Hoopa send him to the Ruins of Void.   

Head northwest onto the beach, which turns out to be the same spot where those cutscenes took place. The Bag is still there but the Pokémon doesn't want to come out yet. There are 2 Fisherman here, Claude on the south and Ronald up top near a Pearl.

He tells us that Axelrod passed through there to find out how to get to the Ruins of Void - either by boat or by surfing down Route 14. Noted. Northeast of the house is the Double Battle House.

North from the Double Battle House is a park, hit on any of the benches to pick up a healing item and then there's the KBT Expressway entrance on the left: 

Pokémon Found (All Day)

Lairon [Steel/Rock] <5% Hard Stone>
Nosepass [Rock] <5% Magnet>

- Same Pokémon are found in the Gurun Town, Antisis City and Seaport City entrances.

You'll find the Steel Gem Family member (Iron Head for 3 Steel Gems), the Electric Gem Family member (Magnet Rise for 2 Electric Gems) a little further up and the Fire Gem Family member (Flare Blitz for 4 Fire Gems) along the northeast lane. 

At the north beach you'll find a Battle Girl who will ask for that Soda Pop and in exchange she'll give us an Expert Belt. At the end of the southeast cliff is a Rare Candy.

Next door to the Double Battle House we'll meet some of the people who were involved in making this game, including Skeli, on the first floor. We'll come back after the League to face these guys. 

Northeast from that house is Rift Cave (use the Dowsing Machine near the entrance to find an Ultra Ball). Don't worry about exploring Rift Cave yet, because that Ruin Maniac by the entrance says it's like Turnback Cave. You can go in for the Pokémon though: 

Golbat [Poison/Flying]
Haunter [Ghost/Poison] <5% Spell Tag>
Duskull [Ghost] <5% Spell Tag>
Golett [Ground/Ghost] <5% Light Clay>
Bronzor [Steel/Psychic] <5% Metal Coat>
Chimecho [Psychic] <5% Cleanse Tag>
Bronzong [Steel/Psychic] <5% Metal Coat>
Dusclops [Ghost] <5% Spell Tag>

Below that entrance are 4 houses:

In the northwest house, 1F, there's a little boy who will ask to play with one of your Pokémon each day and that raises the Friendship level a bit. On the next floor is a Gentleman who will give you an Air Balloon if you show him one of the balloon-based Pokémon e.g. Jigglypuff, Drifloon, etc. There's also a Fisherman who gives us Mission 52 Pyukumuku Chucker: 

65 THE STRONGEST THERE IS

Location: Dehara City
- Defeat all of the Unbound devs in Dehara City in a single day! 

Carry on east to the next house, on the 1F is a Hiker who tells us about the Great Desert that's to the east of town. We'll need the Go-Goggles in order to travel across it, the Hiker will give us a pair if we get through the Gym. On the table are an appropriate consolation prize - Safety Goggles xD. Upstairs we learn a bit about the Rift Cave, apparently anybody who ventured into it has never come back. Good to know :/ North of that building, on 1F, you'll find a Combusken with a Passho Berry and a woman who has the Hoenn Starters. Have some room in the party, first one is free but second one requires you have 6 Badges. Upstairs get 2 Yellow Shards from the Beauty if you want to learn Thunder Punch from her grandma. 

Northwest from that building is an apartment owned by some rich fellow from Seaport City. On the second floor is a Gentleman who gives you an Air Balloon. There's also a Fisherman who gives us Mission 47: 

52 PYUKUMUKU CHUCKER

Location: Dehara City
- Pyukumuku have been washing ashore and are scaring away the tourists! Throw them all back in the ocean. 

Go the north beach and interact with the Pyukumuku that you'll find and once all of them have been sent back into the ocean you'll get a confirmation message and then you can head back to receive the Power Band reward.

In the northeast house, 1F, speak to the Monferno and get a Passho Berry. The woman is from Sinnoh and will give you one of the Starters for free. We'll need 6 and 8 Badges for the remaining two. 

TURTWIG - The Tiny Leaf Pokémon
Level: 30
Type: Grass
Ability: Overgrow
Moves: Leech Seed, Bite, Mega Drain, Grassy Glide

CHIMCHAR - The Chimp Pokémon

Ability: Torrent
Moves: Bubblebeam, Bide, Fury Attack, Brine

Upstairs speak to the Beauty to receive 2 Yellow Shards, which is how much her grandma charges for Thunder Punch.

In the southeast house, 1F, is a Hiker who tells us about the Great Desert to the east from here. We can't go through it without Go-Goggles and he just so happens to have a spare pair to offer us if we have gone through the Dehara Gym first. 

In the southwest house, 1F, is a Gentleman who'll buy any Ores you have. Stones, Pearls, Nuggets, Gems, Shards, Wishing Pieces etc. The Nerd in the hallway will buy Rare Bones from you (P10000 each!). Upstairs if you've filled up the Dex enough the old man will give you a Binding Band. That pretty much covers the town tour, get ready because once we head to the Game Corner we'll be away for a short while. The man roaming outside gives us a Coin Case.

CLOUD GAME CORNER

Like in many other Game Corners, make use of that Dowsing Machine to find some change on the floor. For more Coins go and bother that Gentleman on the right, then the Sailor and the man in blue on the left side. The new machines have a mini game called Cloud Burst in which you control a flying Altaria as it soars among the clouds aiming to pop balloons for points/Coins. Avoid the polkadot ones, they deduct points. But if you fancy the old school slot machines you'll find them on the right side. The Gambler on the upper left g

02 A LIFE OF NO REGRETS


Location: Dehara City
- Get popping! Play Cloud Burst and collect 3000 Coins in a single day.

Clear that one and he'll reward you with a Lv35 Balloon Pikachu, with the Levitate Ability and knows Fly, Agility, Slam and Discharge. At the counter, the lady on the right sells Coins and lady on the left has the goods:

We'll find Jax playing Cloud Burst, doing well enough to buy himself a couple of Ability Capsules. Afterwards we step outside and Jax tells us that he saw some Shadow Grunts headed for the Ruins of Void to perform the unbinding ritual. But Jax and his grandpa are unaware of what we saw happen to Zapdos so they think the ritual won't work because as far as they know Zapdos is out in the wild. We can't surf yet so Jax wants us to get the Dehara Gym Badge first while he heads home to prepare for the trip to the Ruins-- but Hoopa appears and opens a portal that sends us to the Ruins!

*sigh* Hoopa Express transport does it again, but no complaints. After Jax figures out where we are he sees some Grunts at the top of the stairs. The Grunts are with that unknown fellow from the beach, he tells them to deal with us by using the Light of Ruin (!) Jax sends Staraptor up to stop them but is dealt a serious blow :/ and the blast has destroyed the staircase too. But an entrance into the ruins has been created now, Jax says we should go in and find another way to the top. He didn't bring any other Pokémon so he'll stay out here to heal yours. If we find Staraptor we'll let him know.  

-B3F-

That Abra near the entrance is our way back to Dehara City. Head all the way east to pick up Zygarde cells #51 and decipher another tablet message: 

SWITCH BELOW
THEN AVOIDING
THE DUSCLOPS
IS THE KEY.

Huh, alright. Head all the way west (use the Dowsing Machine to find a hidden Dusk Ball in the upper left corner) and follow the path to an ancient switch you should flip. Go north from the entrance then northwest to flip switch #2. Come back down, go east then south to a Max Repel. Go northeast, follow the path to switch #3. Return to the main corridor, go west then smash the rocks blocking access to a north passage...it leads to TM31 Brick Break. Back to the west passage, follow it to a ladder. Get ready because as soon as we reach the next floor...

-B2F-

...we're stopped by a guardian in the form of a Claydol! 

>>POKé BOSS FIGHT<<

Claydol - The Clay Doll Pokémon
Level: 46
Type: Ground/Psychic
Ability: Levitate
Moves Known: Body Press, Stored Power, Cosmic Power, Power Split
Item Held: Leftovers

After we defeat it, Claydol goes on to create a exit for us. There's a hidden Full Heal here. Follow Claydol out onto the slope and circle round to the south side for another entrance where we see Claydol again. A cutscene comes up: 

That unknown Grunt and his subordinates are now aware of us making our way up there, but he's not worried. He sends them to stall us.  

-B2F-

There's a Dusk Stone in the upper left corner and a sliding tile puzzle of Hoopa ready to be solved. After getting that puzzle done continue into the next room and climb the ladder. 

-B1F-

We see Claydol making its way out. That item almost hidden by the south wall is Odd Incense. Once outside head up to pick up Zygarde cells #50 then southeast to see Claydol at the next entrance. The 2 Grunts have noticed Claydol and they try to stop it when Claydol appears by them, but the Grunts fail. When we reach the entrance we see Staraptor on the right and soon Jax joins us, he heals Staraptor and tells us that we're one floor away from facing the Shadows. If you need to heal you'll find him on the western slope. Inside the next area we're instructed to defeat the Guardians of the Portals in order to move forward. That's a Spell Tag in the corner. There won't be a chance to heal in between the Portal battles, so prep up one more time if you need to and then let's get to work!

Phew, back to back battles against the Legendary Beasts? Damn, but that was fun :) the portal closes and you can step on the square tile to move up. The 2 Grunts are still out here and still hurting from their tangle with Claydol, but just before we can enter the chamber ahead they spring up to stop us. 

Shadow Grunt
- Lv39 Cofagrigus [Ghost]
- Lv38 Sableye [Dark/Ghost]
Prize: P1664

Grunt B also wants to fight but Jax shows up in time to keep the Grunts busy while we go on ahead. He'll still heal your team if you need that. In the chamber there's a hidden Nugget and in the corridor below the ladder there's a hidden Zinc. Then we reach the lowest area and two other Grunts grab and bring us forward so we can watch the big show: 

Ivory tells Zeph to proceed with the unbinding. Zeph asks where Marlon is but Ivory doesn't know. Zeph notes that Marlon has been acting a bit odd lately, but anyway all the work that the Shadows have been doing is about to pay off and Zeph is certain that their past error will be undone. He lets out the Legendary Birds and brings out the Prison Stone, the seal can now be undone. He ends up with the Prison Bottle which should unleash the dark force...but nothing happens despite the Bottle being open. And just in time, here comes the former mysterious Grunt now in a new outfit - meet Aklove! He applauds Zeph for going through the unbinding process all proper but the problem is Zeph doesn't have the specific Pokémon which that dark power belonged to. Zeph tries to get rid of him by sending Houndoom but Aklove has Hoopa on his side and Houndoom goes away via portal. This makes Zeph assume that Aklove is the one who kept rescuing us but Aklove confirms that only Hoopa did all that rescuing because we are its true Trainer (!) Aklove just wants to get rid of us and then become Hoopa's new Trainer. Zeph yields and lets Aklove finish the unbinding. Zeph apologises to Ivory for failing to bring some people back, but he hasn't given up and believes there is another way to do it. In an instant Unbound Hoopa is here! We then find out that Aklove is a descendant of the Kalosian King from the Great War and he isn't planning to teaming up with Zeph because he's got his own goal of making up for what the King failed to do: win the war and bring the Ultimate Weapon over from Kalos to ruin Borrius. What about Zeph, what has been his goal all along? He reveals that he wanted his son back. Aklove's loyal Grunts bring us to him and he tells Zeph that he has spoken with Fey, she will allow Aklove to take over her branch of the Shadows as long as he gives her a sample of Hoopa for research. Hostile take over of Zeph's organisation and now is Aklove's chance to get rid of us. Hoopa then summons a Legendary opponent for us, here we go!

The two Legendary Pokémon aren't enough to stop us so Aklove decides to seal us inside a Cube, compliments of Fey who has modified it so that organic matter can exist in it (!) Zeph can't believe this, because he invented the Cube. We can't flee or try to attack Aklove, he reveals that he knows where Mom is and if we try anything, well...so into the Cube Space we are sent!

CUBE SPACE

Whoa...look at this place. I remember seeing a clip of this some time last year and I wondered what was up with that. In the previous version we would've been killed and sent to the Judgement Zone instead. So what's worse, being dead or being sealed away indefinitely...? No access to our Pokémon or anything except Saving, our Trainer Card and Settings. Head north and find a platform occupied by Marlon and our Dad Aros! What the...and he's good buddies with Marlon too! Unreal. All those items flying around aren't for display, Aros tells us to watch out as one flies past us - they are items from other Trainers. Makes sense. What doesn't make sense is that Aros says he's been trapped here for 16 years! He figures out that we've met Hoopa, whom he tried to protect by tossing away its Poké Ball but that didn't work out. Marlon tries to explain to him why the Shadow Warrior project has continued to go on all this time and in the end it's all Fey's fault, she's also the reason why Aros is here too. She's the one that Aros confronted at the end of that cutscene on the bridge, Fey had set her eyes on Hoopa and wanted it but Aros sent it away...so Fey sealed him here. All along people thought Aros was dead, but it's not like this is any better because we are just data here with no idea what has happened to our real bodies. Suddenly something weird happens to us, Aro explains that it happens when the Cube is about to start the sorting process and we'll end up in another sector. Marlon asks him if there really isn't a way out of here, Aros would've left this place if there was a way...then he notices our Cube is a Cube V3 and Marlon confirms that he also has one. Aros thinks he could get us out of here, we give him our Cubes so that he can try to open them here and perhaps that could make them force us out. Marlon promises Aros that he'll put an end to the Shadow Warrior project. Until someone on the outside can release him, Aros can't leave with us. He tasks us with helping Marlon, adding that the Shadow Warriors are sensitive to light so we must expose them to it in order for their souls to be put to rest. We must save Hoopa too. 

Out of Cube Space we go and we appear near that other entrance to Cinder Volcano, which was previously blocked by a Grunt. Check that your team and everything is okay then head into Cinder Volcano so we can help Marlon.

Look at this, a new Grunt in a fancy new outfit :) but he's too busy nursing whatever injury he's got. There's a hidden X Attack here. Only when we aim for the ladder does he step up to battle us. 

Light of Ruin Grunt

- Lv39 Sylveon [Fairy]

The Light of Ruin, that's the new big bad group we'll have to worry about now eh? Great xD, the cherry on top is from his reaction to us being alive and well. He rushes down to tell the others. 

-B1F-

We arrive just in time to see Marlon confronting Crater Town Gym Leader Véga, Marlon can't believe he isn't with the Shadows anymore and Véga can't believe Marlon's alive. Marlon demands to know where he put the Shadow Warriors and is told that they've been moved. Véga got a fine offer from Fey so he's part of her crew now. He won't let Marlon destroy the Shadow Warriors, not now when Aklove has his own organisation up and running - The Light of Ruin. Just before Véga and that Grunt from 1F can team up against Marlon we show up to even the odds. A tag team match with Marlon as our partner? Pay-per-view main event right there :)

Véga orders the other Grunts to return to their new base, they are done here. As the Grunts leave, Marlon and Véga continue their battle elsewhere and that lets us continue exploring. On the right are Zygarde cells #17 and a hidden Red Shard. That entrance on the right leads to a chamber where we find a Heat Rock. The left side chamber has TM76 Stealth Rock and the remains of a Shadow Warrior, remove the cloak and lay it to rest. Back to the main area and head south, use the Dowsing Machine on the way to locate a hidden Max Revive. In the southwest corner is a Lava Cookie. 

-B2F-

We see Marlon threatening to throw Véga into lava if he doesn't tell him where those Shadow Warriors are. Véga instead reminds Marlon about what happened here: the monster that the Grunts had to face last time we were here is in the lava resting...but what if someone were to wake it up and control it? He takes out the Red Orb, which he got from Aklove, and summons Groudon in its Primal Form! Véga then makes his escape after ordering Groudon to cause a tremor here, threatening to bury us alive, and so we're left to deal with a very upset Legendary! A wall of rocks falls between us and Marlon, he's the one who must face Groudon using our Pokémon. Really? :/ I don't know about this...in the previous version we did the battling, why was that changed to this?? As Marlon we can use Items like normal but can't choose which moves to use, just be aware of that.

Groudon - The Continent Pokémon
[Primal Form]
Level: 46
Type: Ground/Fire
Ability: Desolate Land
Moves Known: Fissure, Hammer Arm, Earthquake, Rest
Item Held: Red Orb

Groudon returns to slumbering under the lava. Marlon sends out Krookodile to break down the rock wall and gives back our Pokémon. He is grateful for the help but he prefers to work alone on the next task. He has to get to Zeph and then find the Light of Ruin's new base. If we were to go to the Shadow Base in Frozen Heights, Zeph wouldn't agree to us working together so Marlon urges us to stay away. But the main Mission update says: 

Location: Shadow Base
- Return to the Shadows' base in Frozen Heights and find Zeph! 

Can't be helped. Use the Dowsing Machine on the west side of the room to locate a hidden Occa Berry, a hidden Dire Hit and pick up a Star Piece from the upper left corner. On the east side there's an Elixir and a hidden Ultra Ball by that small rock in the upper right. Nothing else we can do here for now so exit and, well, head back home :)

You can stop by Prof. Log's Lab for some new dialogue now that the dark force has been unleashed. Gotta find Jax and save Borrius. Shouldn't be a problem, I think. Get on the ice and slide to the upper left corner, back to where it all began eh? 

[rtsb] SHADOW BASE

-1F-

Follow the corridor east (nothing we can do in the area where we were held captive until we have that Clearance Level 2 Key Card), you'll find Marlon's uniform. Put it on, we really don't have a choice :P neat threads though. Move up and enter that small room on the left to get a Hyper Potion. Speak to the Scientist and learn that a red-haired fellow forced his way in here. Axelrod? On the left side of the room is a Level 1 Key Card. Then head for the elevator up top and select B1F.

-B1F-

After opening the door check that plant on the left for a hidden Pearl. Enter the room on the right, there's hidden Calcium and the Level 2 Key Card is on the table. Go back to the 1F area where we started this game, open the door and pick up that Metagrossite/Tyranitarite/Garchompite. Return to B1F and reach the east end of the corridor, there's a hidden Dusk Ball by them boxes. In the northwest room is a Reaper Cloth. The western room has Zygarde cells #52. We'll need the Level 3 Key Card to access that southwest room. But the south room only needs the Level 1 Key Card, go in to pick up Protein just under the left side table and another Dusk Ball from the upper left area. The Grunt at the right side table will ask for a battle, sure why not. You can fight him as many times as you like.

Shadow Grunt
- Lv40 Scrafty [Dark/Fighting]
- Lv41 Malamar [Dark/Psychic]
Prize: P1728

Back to the elevator and down to B2F.

-B2F-

Move south along the eastern side to find a Scientist who's up for a battle and reminds us of that other shady group the Science Society. Like the other Grunt you can battle her multiple times. 

Shadow Scientist
- Lv40 Mawile [Steel/Fairy]
- Lv40 Vikavolt [Bug/Electric]
- Lv41 Bronzong [Steel/Psychic]
Prize: P1664

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Interesting to see that each Pokémon that's in battle gets a Sp. Attack boost. How is she doing that? 

She'll heal your team afterwards. On the south side is the lab where Hoopa sent us, the same lab where Shadow Warriors are created :| thanks science. There's an Up-Grade in the bottom left corner, Zygarde cells #53 in the upper left and the Level 3 Key Card on the opposite side. Exit the lab and head up to try out the new Key Card. TM41 Torment acquired. Back to B1F's southwest room to pick up some shades then off to the very bottom. 

-B3F- 

As we go west we'll see the red-haired person unlock the door and proceed. Moments later we find out that person is Marlon (!) Wow, where's our Rival for this major reveal? Follow after Marlon and catch the conversation in progress: Zeph is telling Marlon that the Grunts have been ordered by Fey to join the Light of Ruin, so it's a surprise that any Grunts and Scientists were allowed to remain. But Marlon understands how bad the situation is now, and as he goes on we enter the room to surprise the two of them. As expected Zeph isn't too thrilled to see us, thinking that we're a spy sent by Aklove who LOOKS like us. That's going too far, Boss!

Zeph can't believe that it's really us, and Marlon has to remind him that we're not the enemy here. He then adds that going forward he will be in charge of what remains of the Shadows. Zeph is fine with that and tells him that the scientists are working on locating the LoR's new base and once they find it that's when an attack can be done on it. Aklove is away with Fey as she studies Hoopa, so attacking the new base as soon as possible while Aklove is absent must be done. Marlon wants to bring us along on this mission, at first Zeph isn't too sure about that, but Marlon tells him about how we were both trapped in the Cube, meeting our father Aros and the promise made to him. This is shocking news to Zeph but he trusts in Aros' skills and believes that he'll find his way out of the Cube somehow. Marlon then tells us what the purpose of the Shadows is *cue that flashback sequence music*: 

19 years ago...

Marlon and Ivory travelled from Hoenn to visit Zeph just after his son died. It is revealed that Marlon and Ivory also had a son who passed away, they tried to bring him back to life but failed. Ivory gave birth to twins about a year ago and they were being taken care of by Prof. Log. Well, well. Zeph tells them that another friend of his (Aros) also lives in Frozen Heights, a friend who helped him form the Shadows. Shocking. Marlon is aware of Axelrod's search for his parents and regrets leaving him and Melony behind. Zeph continues the story, saying he made Ivory and Marlon an offer. They were skeptical about it at first but they eventually agreed to it. The three of them couldn't do very much on their own so later on they joined up with the Science Society (to form Cube Corp.) and that made the research proceed a lot quicker. Zeph was the CEO but he stepped down and Fey, the leader of the Science Society, took over. Zeph wanted to focus more on his revival plan, so after stepping down he formed the Shadow branch under Cube Corp. to work on that plan. In the next scene we see them conduct the first trial in the creation of a human-Pokémon hybrid a.k.a Shadow Warrior! Zeph is almost blasted with fire by the creature but Marlon steps in to control it with the help of a control gauntlet that Zeph has. A rough start but Zeph believes that they are in the right direction. Over the years more Shadow Warriors were created but Zeph, Marlon and Ivory could not revive their children using Shadow Warriors. So they decided to try another plan which involved bringing the Ultimate Weapon to Borrius and use it instead. From there they went on to research Hoopa and the dark force...and the rest is history. 

Zeph apologises to us, he hadn't known that we're Aros' son otherwise he wouldn't have reacted the way he did when we arrived here. A Scientist comes into the office to report that the remnants of Hoopa's portal energy have been found in Vivill Town, possibly that's the new LoR base. It's time to move, before he leaves Marlon requests that we don't tell Axelrod about him, at least not yet. He also lets us keep the uniform. In order to reach Vivill town we will need to head northeast from Dehara City and Surf is required. After Zeph and Marlon exit, use the Dowsing Machine to find a Houndoomite in this room and then leave the base.

By the way, back in Dresco Town there is that old man who lives with the "Save 100 times" Mission guy. He told us about Aros and was hoping someone would let him know what happened to him. Go back and talk to the old man again now that we know, he'll reward us with a Fairy Gem. Now we can finally challenge Gym #5, get ready.

[g5] DEHARA CITY GYM

Leader: Galavan - The Brains Behind the War Machine

I saw a few comments from people about this Gym in the previous version, mainly concerning the puzzle xD maybe we might need to roll up our sleeves for this one. The Gym Guide tells us that Electric and Steel-types are used here, that's not a bad combo. The floor is magnetised, which will keep any Electric or Steel-types in the air so Ground-type moves won't be of much help. The puzzle involves electric barriers which need to be lowered in order for us to reach Galavan. Fair enough. Go to the east side and stand on the left switch. In the next area go southwest then north to another switch which takes us to a Magnet. Back to the previous area and move up to meet Ezra.

Super Nerd Ezra
- Lv41 Luxio [Electric]
- Lv40 Probopass [Rock/Steel]

He clues us in on how the bulb above him works. Turn it on and return to the main Gym area and step on the switch up top. In the next area carry on northward to Humphrey.

Guitarist Luca
- Lv40 Manectric [Electric]
- Lv41 Electrode [Electric]

Onto the switch below him and in the next area use the switch on the right to reach a bulb that you must switch on. Back to the previous area and go north to a switch and pop up next to Giselle.

Scientist Giselle

- Lv40 Dedenne [Electric/Fairy]

Back to the area before we met Giselle, go south now that the barrier is off and step on the switch, it leads to a platform where we'll encounter a wild Lv35 Voltorb. Catch it if you need one and then back to the previous area and carry on up to face Jerry. 

Scientist Jerry

- Lv41 Luxray [Electric]
Prize: P1960

Go all the way back to Jose's area, switch off the bulb there then to the area where Jerry is, use the far right switch and turn off the bulb that it leads to (the platform just southeast from Luca) and then all the way back to the main Gym area and go left. The switch takes us to the south side of where Jerry is, head east to Ashton. 

Collector Ashton
- Lv40 Emolga [Electric/Flying]
- Lv41 Pachirisu [Electric]
Prize: P1568

That item ball above him is a Lv40 Electrode. Step on the switch below him, turn on the bulb, then go all the way back to Ezra and turn off the bulb there and then come back to head northwest from Ashton to final Gym Trainer Bernie. 

Worker Bernie

- Lv40 Magnemite [Electric/Steel]
- Lv40 Voltorb [Electric]
Prize: P1880

So the unidentified man we've been seeing in the PokéCenters is this guy, who would've thunk it? Initially I thought maybe he's the Champion, since he had some knowledge about the previous Gym Leaders and in most games we meet the region's Champion at some point on our journey. In the previous version this would be a Single Battle, not anymore. It's a Double Battle for that Badge #5 and then we can finally Surf!

-B1F-

Slide onto the ice from the right, then right again (don't smash the rock yet) and up off the ice. That item on the upper right is an Escape Rope. From the bottom right corner of that unfrozen patch of floor, slide down to the southeast to pick up TM69 Rock Polish. Return to that unfrozen floor and slide onto the ice from the upper left, then down and all the way to the northwest side. Don't smash the rock yet if you want that item directly above you (PP Up) and that's an Elixir on the left. After those items make your way back to the unfrozen floor and slide off from the south, once you reach the rock, don't smash it, slide to the right then down, right, up, left and now you can get the hidden Big Pearl. We'd have to fall from 1F to reach that TM ball so don't worry about it for now. Exit Icicle Cave.

/ROUTE 2\
- Northwest area: Zygarde cells #8 on a small patch of land. Go south, passing under the bridge to pick up a Shiny Stone. On the bigger island next to the small patch we find Franklin and a Crush Kin pair that won't battle us until we've defeated all the Trainers on Route 2 and Route 15.

/GRIMM WOODS\
- Bring with you Pokémon that can Cut. Just to the west from the eastern entrance is a man who gives us Mission 82 Weed Whacker: 

82 WEED WHACKER

Location: Grim Woods
- Help a rich businessman build his dream pancake restaurant by cutting down all of the grass in Grim Woods. 

A silly Mission really because after all that cutting the man informs us that the Pokémon Rangers have gotten involved because the grass is endangered so his plan goes down the toilet...but hey, you get a Beedrillite in the end and another Mission done. On the north side are hidden Tinymushrooms and we can finally reach Zygarde cells #12.

Swimmer[F] Nicole
- Lv41 Masquerain [Bug/Flying]
Prize: P1392

Northwest from her is a landing spot on the island, get on the island and from there go east until you see a northward path blocked by skinny trees. Cut them and go up to find TM89 U-Turn. Carry on east to pick up Zygarde cells #37 and then south to that sad Clown who gives us TM18 Rain Dance. For a moment I thought he's just some dodgy fellow watching Nicole xD maybe if this was Pokémon Clover that would've been the case :) let's go back to the stranded Hiker and hear his story: he got to this island by digging through a hidden tunnel but his Graveler learned a new move and forgot Dig in the process. Happens all the time xD be ready because once we go into the tunnel there's no going back until we reach the other end. But first, we gotta prove to him that we're good to go down there. This is for Mission 34 Island Survivor. Please note that the regular Trainer document is missing information about Finn so I'll leave his Levels blank.

Damn it's dark here, Flash won't help :/ Finn tells us that there's a ladder around here somewhere. Terrific, who knows how long we'll be here. On the bright side at least our character isn't claustrophobic. Behind us is Chansey the healer and respawn point. Move a few steps south until you can head left. Continue west until you see a northward path, follow it all the way to a rock you must smash to reach the Aggronite above it. Return to the corridor going south from Chansey and carry on along it all the way to a rock that's got a hidden Luminous Moss. Just before we reached that rock there was a northward path we passed, move along that path until you can go west. We get to an intersection where there's a sudden quake and we're attacked by a wild Diglett. After defeating it go south all the way until another quake stops us, this time a wild Golem appears. It gets an Aura stat boost. Continue on the path to reach Zygarde cells #38. Back track to the northward turn that we just passed before getting to the cells, go along it until you are at a junction. The south way leads to a breakable rock and a Max Repel. Go north and then east all the way to our next battle - a Dugtrio stops us. All its stats get a boost. That's the last wild attack, continue along this path all the way to the exit ladder. In the next chamber Finn has Graveler use Rock Smash to make an opening and we are finally out. Guess what the reward for this is? Yup, TM28 Dig! Finn had it all along xD. Damn it Finn. Mission 34 completed. The opening leads to the KBT Expressway, we are next to the Ghost Gem Family member. 

/TEHL TOWN\
- On the right side near the KBT Expressway entrance: Nugget. 

/ROUTE 10\
- Southeast side: Zygarde cells #35. Head west to climb a set of stairs and cross a bridge to pick up a Green Shard. South from there is a Black Belt who'll give us a Lv2 Macho Brace. He can upgrade it if you give him Everstones (e.g. Lv3 for 3 Everstones). Carry on west to an island where you'll find a Dawn Stone and southwest from the island is a hidden Max Elixir.

/ROUTE 9\
- In the area after the Underground Passage house, surf across the pond and check the bottom left corner for TM77 Flame Charge, hidden by the treetop. 
- On the island in the middle of the lake: TM30 Shadow Ball and Zygarde cells #32. 

/FROST MOUNTAIN\ 
- 1F southeast side: There's an Aggron here, if you get close to it Aggron will blow you away with a big roar. Very random, but make a note of this for later on. Climb the stairs and continue to the upper southeast area for a King's Rock. 

/FALLSHORE CITY\
- Surf east from the KBT Expressway entrance, there's a hidden Fast Ball here. Surf to the west side, stay on the cliff all the way to the end where you'll find a hidden Shed Shell.
- Behind the building southwest from the KBT Expressway entrance: Silk Scarf. 
- East side of the beach: head up the hill, you'll find a Steelixite in the northeast area.

/ROUTE 11\
- Now you can reach this route's Raid Den, just to the right from the Cliff Cave entrance. There's a hidden Iapapa Berry next to the route signboard just outside Epidimy Town.

/EPIDIMY TOWN\
- Southwest corner: Quick Ball. 

/THUNDERCAP MT.\
- 1F southwest area: TM24 Thunderbolt. 
- 2F southeast area: Max Ether. Past that is a ladder in the corner, it takes us to that section of 3F which has the tablet. We'll find an Electirizer in the bottom right corner. In the northeast area is the other puzzle we needed to solve. Down below I've numbered the boulders so that you know which ones I'll be referring to in the solution: 

(12)   (05)
(11)(10)  (04)
    (09)  (03)
(07)(08)  (02)
(06)   (01)XX

XX represents our starting point. Push 03 to the left, 04 up, 02 down then 03 down. 09 to the left, 08 down, 10 up. Now you can move 07 to the left and smash the rocks so that 11 is free for the pressure plate. After that go back south then southwest and jump down the ledge to tackle the remaining puzzle on the west side. Nothing much to it, just smash the rocks and push the boulder to the plate. The electric barrier in the northwest disappears and we can go on to collect a Manectite. There's also that ladder which we pass on the way to getting the Manectite, use it and on 4F surf east and go all the way until you have to go north. Use the Dowsing Machine to find a hidden Nugget in that corridor. Turn right then head south to meet a guy who saw a mysterious yellow Pokémon on a ledge around here. He needs a special machine to help him dig through that wall and reach the ledge. We can make a note of this guy, maybe we'll find out what that machine is later. Go all the way north, we'll end up in an area where we meet Milo, a boy in a Pika-costume. He got lost so we must take him with us to the exit. This is Mission 75 The Wayward Kid.

75 THE WAYWARD KID

Location: Thundercap Mt.
- A little boy has lost his way in Thundercap Mt. 4F! Team up with him, and guide him to the exit. 

Back track to where we turned east before meeting the "yellow Pokémon" guy, from there head north for a Double Battle against Phillip and Tina.

Don't jump over the ledge yet, go all the way back to the north side then west and south, surf across a pool and you'll get to a Rare Candy. Return to the Hikers and go southwest, we'll find Miriam, Benward and a Thick Club.

Now we can go for that ladder and back to that 3F tablet area and then 2F. Once you've made it back there, go north from the southeast section. You'll see a lower level on the left side, in there is an Item ball on the bottom left side of a pool (Electric Seed). 
- 3F north area: across the pool is a ladder taking us to a secluded 2F area where we meet Gerald.

Return to the main 3F area, in the northeast section is a Protein and that marks the end of this backtrack session, phew. Wait until we get that Rock Climb move, that session is going to leave stretch marks xD because there are some places where it is easy to miss the Rock Climb spots. Exit the mountain and go back to Dehara. We have the Great Desert to prepare for now and who knows what surprises are in store for us there. 

Just before we enter the eastern Gate we're stopped by Axelrod. This guy misses all the action and wasn't even there for the biggest reveal so far, damn. He made it to the Ruins of Void but it was too late. Arthur arrives, he's looking for Jax and we tell him about what happened at the Ruins. Arthur suspects that the Light of Ruin may have taken Jax with them to Vivill Town, and after hearing all this Axelrod decides that he'll head there too. He agrees to team up with the Shadows for now but after that business is done he's going after them. He'll wait for us in Vivill.

Southwest from him are Zygarde cells #59 between the cacti. To the east is the entrance to the Tomb of Borrius, the final resting place of King Borrius III. This whole dark force business started with him, so send your angry Tweets to @KB3 xD. According to that Ruin Maniac by the entrance there is quite the treasure in the burial chamber but nobody has succeeded in fully exploring the tomb. Hmm, the challenge would be worth accepting if there wasn't a trio of Ruin Maniacs inside keeping us from checking the place out. One of the Maniacs is occupied with the tile puzzle which unlocks the door to the rest of the tomb so just make a note of this place for later. There's a hidden Relic Copper here.

Return to Black Belt Kiyo and go east until you see a white-haired man standing on a cliff. He's a member of a warrior cult called the Undying Lucario and the giver of Mission 81 Warmonger:

The town that the Regi trio built, not bad. Top right corner of the Regi statue has Zygarde cells #61. In the house northeast from the statue is a Fisherman who asks if you've fished for Pokémon at least 3 times and if so he'll get all excited and leave for East Borrius. He leaves behind a Pearl. In the house next door speak to the Rancher, he has Mission 10 As Hard as They Come:

10 AS HARD AS THEY COME

Location: Gurun Town
- There ain't nothin' in this world harder than a Hard Stone! Collect 20 of them for an enthusiast. 

The reward for this smashing Mission is TM111 Smack Down so get cracking. The Black Belt will buy any Relics if you have any e.g. that Relic Copper we found. The northwest house belongs to a Scientist who revives Fossils. In the KBT Expressway is the Rock Gem Family member (Power Gem for 2 Rock Gems). Make a note of the Medium in the PokéCenter, we'll come back for her in the post-game with the special item she requires.
 
In the Mart you'll receive a Lemonade from the woman between shelves.

Interesting to know that east from here is Route 18 and Victory Road. According to the Ace Trainer in the PokéCenter there is currently no Borrius Champion! The spot is vacant...but for how long though? Now I'm curious to see what the League for this region is like. When you're ready head north for Vivill Woods, there's a hidden Charti Berry near the entrance.

As soon as we arrive we meet up with Axelrod. He searched around for any Shadows but no luck, and the residents aren't there too. He did find one guy by a warehouse in the northern area of town so Axe is going over there to get some answers. 

All the houses are locked, but you can pick up Zygarde cells #63 next to the northeast house. Head northwest to cover the other side of Route 15, you can get Zygarde cells #66 and read Trainer Tips sign #31.

The guard outside the warehouse is a LoR Grunt who isn't exactly worried about two Trainers showing up. He speaks with his superior via his communicator to let her know that we have arrived, but because we didn't come with an army, there's no need for backup to be sent. Then there's a brief scene showing a large ship arriving and with the help of several bombs the ship makes its way through the eastern side of town! What the... Ohh, so THAT'S the backup. We see a group of LoR Grunts on stand by inside, they're ready to fight the intruders...until they see the intruders are Shadow Warriors! In no time the Grunts are sent running. Back outside Axelrod sends out his Starter to knock out the Grunt so we can enter the warehouse.

-1F-

Behind the door that we need to get through is a squad of LoR Grunts. Axe wants us to come up with a plan but before we do, a Shadow Warrior appears and eliminates the Grunts with fire. The last Grunt opens the door just before he's burned and the Shadow Warrior makes a move against us. 

Shadow Warrior 
Level: 53
Type: Ghost/Dark
Ability: Tough Claws
Moves Known: Dragon Claw, Shadow Bone, Flamethrower, Metal Claw

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- All its stats get a boost right at the beginning of the battle. 

This is Axe's first time encountering a Shadow Warrior, but that won't stop him. He continues deeper into the warehouse. For the curious ones among you, DO NOT touch the fire! Your entire party will get burned xD, seriously. Don't ask how I know that :) That Grunt from outside has recovered and he stops us right before we can follow Axe downstairs. 

Light of Ruin Grunt
- Lv45 Granbull [Fairy]
Prize: P2520

He tries to reach out with other Grunts via his communicator but the device is damaged so he'll have to get to the Grunts in person...

-B1F-

...and is defeated again by Axe. The Grunt then makes his escape by means of a warp panel. Axe wonders what happened to the other Grunts that we were told would be here. 

Axe continues forward, using the same warp panel. There are 4 of them. On the left side are stairs leading to the now flooded Research Lab, this is where we find a warp panel under the boulder in the southwest corner that sends us to B5F. Marlon and Zeph are there, unable to progress into the Command Centre because of a door which requires a 6-letter password. The Scientist trying to unlock the door has figured out one of the letters, but we have to find the other 5 first. Zeph is certain that one of Aklove's people knows the password. Marlon tells us to watch out for the Shadow Warriors, they'll attack us on the spot. But you guys brought them here! Return to B1F and use the bottom left warp panel. 

-B2F- (Rest Room)

Move up to remove the Shadow Warrior's cloak and face it in battle. This one is at Lv45. The LoR Grunt thanks us for defeating the Shadow Warrior by giving us one letter of the password to the Command Centre: O. He'll also heal our team and share information about the structure of this base: it is split into 8 areas, the important ones being the Power Grid, Break Room, Cafeteria, Rest Room and Research Lab. Step on the top warp panel and pop up in another section of B2F where there's an unfriendly Grunt.

Prize: P2480

Take those stairs down to B3F. 

-B3F-

Among the left side boxes is a hidden Fairy Gem and below them are Zygarde cells #65. The warp panel on the bottom right takes us to a small room on B2F occupied by another unfriendly. 

Light of Ruin Grunt
- Lv45 Whimsicott [Grass/Fairy]
Prize: P2520

He gives us password letter A. Return to B1F and use the top left tile to reach the Cafeteria. While those two Grunts are busy, you can pick up that Hyper Potion on the upper right table before going to the next warp panel. 

-B2F- (Kitchen)

That's a Whip Dream on the table. After defeating the Shadow Warrior we take on the Grunt.

Light of Ruin Grunt
- Lv44 Floette [Fairy]
- Lv45 Shiinotic [Grass/Fairy]
Prize: P2520

He gives us password letter K and reveals that one of the Admins is a woman. Ignore that upper left warp panel, it leads to the Break Room and a warp panel connected to the upper right panel on B1F (the one Axe used). Go for the bottom right warp panel, it takes us to a tiny B1F room which has a hidden PP Up and a warp panel that sends us to the southeast room on B3F. That Grunt from outside is here and so is another Shadow Warrior. We save the Grunt from certain death and he has a change of heart towards us, enough for him to tell us password letter V. That item on the right is a Sachet. Back to B1F for the bottom right panel. 

-B2F- (Power Grid)

Dispatch the Shadow Warrior and then the Grunt.

Use the panel on the far right to reach a room with a hidden Gardevoirite. Back to B1F and then the door on B5F. We got password letters O, A, K, V and L...we rearrange them a bit and get AKLOV. Input that and the Scientist throws in the E. Bingo. We bust into the room to meet one of the Admins - Ivory (!?) Damn. She joined Aklove after Zeph gave up at the Ruins of Void and she accepted Aklove's big offer: join the LoR to destroy Borrius and then have a chance to use the Ultimate Weapon, which will be powered by the Shadow Warriors that the LoR have obtained. But if Borrius is destroyed, Ivory's home and family will be gone too...she counters this by revealing that Aklove said he'd protect Ivory's children until this is done. Zeph orders the Shadow Warrior which they brought along to apprehend Ivory but a portal opens up to send the Shadow Warrior away and look who's back just in time, Aklove and Unbound Hoopa. His trips to Hoenn and Kalos in search of the Ultimate Weapon have been stopped because thanks to the explosive entrance by the ship earlier, the Research Lab was destroyed and so no more Ultimate Weapon data. However Ivory and her team learned enough to confirm that the Ultimate Weapon is not at its original location. Good news for Aklove, making him more determined to obtain that Ultimate Weapon. Then Axelrod arrives, as if things couldn't even more explosive, he's the one that Zeph asked Marlon about earlier - the person who has the Prison Bottle. But Axe wants to know what happened to his parents, he won't Zeph the Bottle until he gets answers. He also gets in Aklove's face and Aklove almost has Hoopa send Axe away when Ivory intervenes to remind Aklove about the promise....and the floodgates swing wide open when Aklove puts 2 and 2 together to reveal Ivory and Marlon as Axelrod's parents. Marlon tries to explain things to Axe but that doesn't go too well and Aklove has had enough, he orders Hoopa to send Axe away through a portal. Marlon is sent away too, both sent to a safe location just like Ivory wanted. 

Zeph attempts to leave and he also gets sent away, going to the same place where his Houndoom went. You have a chance now to check your team and prepare if you need to, then step up to take on Aklove.

Not enough power, Aklove. He gets upset at Hoopa for failing to beat one single Trainer...but he orders it to send us where our friend Jax has ended up......

[rtdw] DISTORTION WORLD

**HMs Needed:Strength, Surf.

Damn, how long has he been here?? He says after we disappeared at the Ruins of Void a portal appeared under him and Jax ended up here. We don't have any good news to share with them about the Legendary Birds or the Shadows and now we have to find a way out of this crazy place. Follow him to the next platform and stand on the spot in the middle - a new path is created, carry on along it to the east then south and west, turning upside down until you reach the next platform with a middle spot you should stand on. Next area, go south to find Jax, he warns us about how not everything here is as it seems so we should stay sharp. Easier said than done :| brace yourselves.

Follow the path east and north to a spot that creates a platform on the right. Carry on eastward along that upside down platform to the spot you'll see on the upper right. Reach a point where there's a spot on the right and one below it, go for the lower spot and on the new platform that's created go south since the right side has a boulder in the way. On the south side we arrive at a curious little boulder puzzle. Push the boulder twice to the left, the circle round to the second boulder and push it until the first boulder is under the pressure plate. Then just push the second boulder up. There's a sudden rumbling. Get to the bottom left side and continue southwest to a platform with a middle spot and 5 rocks. Stand on that spot. In the next area go all the way to the platform in the south, the boulder puzzle there involves black and blue obstacles that disappear and reappear when you approach and move away from them. It's not a tough puzzle, just time your movements with how the obstacles vanish and reappaear. Once the boulder is on the pressure plate there's another sudden rumble. Back track to the platform before this one and move to the northeast side where there are 2 boulders. Push the lower one to the right so that the top one falls through the hole. Return to the previous area, go east to see the boulder which fell here. Push it all the way up, then the left boulder to the right. Continue going to the right using the other boulder until you reach the plant, then push the boulder down and up to move the far right boulder. Solved. Go all the way west then south, east and northeast. This puzzle has 2 boulders, the left boulder moves the right one. Move the left boulder twice to the right then twice back to the left. Twice to the north, then go move the second boulder to the right. Back to the first boulder, move it up once then right once and up one more time to solve this. Make your way back to the very first boulder puzzle platform, from there go northwest then west to a platform with a middle spot.  

In the next area go east all the way to scale down a waterfall and continue south to push a boulder down (this is the very first boulder we saw when we arrived in the Distortion World). Once you've pushed the boulder far enough Jax comes along to confirm we're on the correct path. Step on the middle spot on the next platform and we move to the next area where Jax recalls Arthur telling him about the Distortion World and what occupies this place. We hear the cry and Jax goes on ahead to check out that Pokémon. He heals our team, you get a chance to prepare and then proceed north to meet the ruler of this world.

Giratina - The Renegade Pokémon
(Origin Forme)
Level: 53
Type: Ghost/Dragon
Ability: Levitate
Moves Known: Dragon Claw, Shadow Claw, AncientPower, Slash

Giratina seems to understand our situation and after it disappears, a portal back to our world opens. Jump in and we are reappear in Rift Cave. Good time to update Jax on what happened in Vivill Town, after that he hurries back there. 

The townspeople have come back now so let's explore town. The Lass near the town entrance gives us Pure Incense. In the PokéCenter there's a guy who gives us Mission 78 Trader Traitor: 

78 TRADER TRATOR

Location: Vivill Town
- Are Pokémon just property? Trade Pokémon with Borrians to find out!

If you've done all the NPC trades in the game so far then there should be 2 remaining trades according to this Mission's Log. There is one trade is here in Vivill and the next one is in a place called Redwood Village. The reward for this Mission is 10 Link Stones.

The Bird Keeper in the PokéMart wants to see a specified Pokémon stat each day, if you have it you get rewarded with items which boost that stat. 

The southwestern house has Shroomu the Youngster who wants to trade either his Shiinotic for an Amoonguss or vice versa. The northeastern house has a Nerd who will teach Seed Bomb for 2 Green Shards. The Gentleman in the northern house hears the "prehistoric" sounding cries of a Pokémon from somewhere in the Warehouse. Surf back onto Route 15, now that the odd storm is gone one of the 2 Swimmers who were blocking on the south side is still here, Sandra.

Swimmer[F] Sandra
- Lv47 Pyukumuku [Water]
- Lv46 Octillery [Water]
Prize: P1440

Sandra drops some choice hints about what might have been causing it. Back to Vivill and into the Warehouse, return to the Command Center and pick up a Shiny Stone and a Power Lens. Outside we see Arthur updating Jax on everything, a lot happened while we were stuck in the Distortion World. Arthur tells us that he saw Aklove and the Light of Ruin leave using Hoopa. Axelrod arrives, it's good to see that he's alright, and he says he was sent to a holding cell in a building somewhere with Marlon. Axe managed to escape at some point but Marlon was moved to a mountain covered in crystals, which Arthur identifies as Crystal Peak and he confirms that the Ultimate Weapon is at the top of the mountain! It was brought to Borrius 3000 years ago. Axe won't let Aklove destroy Borrius, not when Axe has grown to like being here and after finding his parents. He flies off and we're left to plan ahead, Jax wants us to meet in Seaport City where we can get transport to East Borrius. We have to travel to Antisis City first to get Badge #6 then head west along Route 17 to reach Seaport. Return to Gurun Town and head south.

On our way south we reach a point that has an invisible wall. A few moments later we're joined by a man who knows what that "invisible wall" is and gives us the Devon Scope, aha. Kecleon becomes visible and flees. The man thinks we're not bad as a Trainer, we'd make for a worthy challenger to face the Antisis Gym Leader who has grown bored. Carry on south to find Miah.

Climb back up onto the cliffs, go to the south side to pick up a Big Pearl. If we continue east we'll get onto Route 17 and receive some real bad news - a bridge to Seaport has been destroyed thanks to the never ending feud between Zangoose and Seviper :/ I thought maybe we could reach Seaport, make it a fast travel point, and then continue on to Antisis. The boss of that Worker crew gives us one hell of a consolation prize though - HM08 Rock Climb! There it is folks, at long last. I really dislike Rock Climb xD because you have to hope you've got Pokémon that can learn the damn move! So I usually give a sigh of relief when I play a ROMhack which does not have it...but here we are :) I'll give credit to Pokémon Clover for improving Rock Climb by giving it 100 Accuracy and I think its Type was changed from Normal to Rock. Back to Route 16, going southwest to find Trainer Tips signpost #32 up top next to a rocky outcropping then down below that is Andrew on his island.

This time Kecleon doesn't run so catch it if you can. That spot is where you'll find an invisible Kecleon whenever you come to this route. 
Onto the island next door, there's a Hyper Potion on the north side. On the south end of the grass below is a hidden Max Potion. We're near the Antisis Gate and already there's trouble ahead, that Roughneck is Sly.

How long until we start some trouble on these mean streets? Not very long because there are a couple of bikers who are looking for a fight: the Black Ferrothorn guy in the southwest section and one of our guys in the middle of town. Ban him!

Black Ferrothorn Goon
- Lv49 Ferroseed [Grass/Steel]
Prize: P5120

Black Emboar Goon
- Lv49 Weezing [Poison]
Prize: P2520

He does recognises us afterwards so no ban, for now. No Nurse Joy running the PokéCenter, you'd have to cough up P500 to heal the team. Galavan is here though, to tell us about Big Mo. Next door lives a Scientist who was sent here by the Science Society to do some work but she can't sell us what she's got since we're only a child. We'll check on her later. Just north from the PokéCenter are Zygarde cells #69 behind a lamp post, you'd have to go behind the buildings from the east side to reach it. Next to the Antisis Storage Building, almost hidden by the top of the lamp post, is a PP Up. The northeast exit leads back to Route 16, just outside of town is the tollgate man Fletcher.

Roughneck Fletcher
- Lv49 Pangoro [Fighting/Dark]
Prize: P1820

On the left side cliff you'll see the currently unreachable Zygarde cells #68 but just up ahead are Trainer Tips signpost #32 and a Max Repel. Back to town and then east to the Port. 

ANTISIS PORT

The guards stationed around the port will battle you every time you visit the port at night. Starting with McGuinty, then Holt in the northeast corner and finally Peralta in the southeast: 

Officer McGuinty
- Lv49 Noctowl [Normal/Flying]
- Lv50 Stoutland [Normal]
- Lv49 Machoke [Fighting]

Prize: P1240

Officer Peralta
- Lv50 Mienshao [Fighting]
- Lv50 Lucario [Fighting/Steel]
- Lv49 Magneton [Electric/Steel]
Prize: P1180

On the far east side is a Sailor who gives us 3 Premier Balls from a batch that has just come in, he does this every day between 5pm and 7:59pm. There are barricades in place which keep us from reaching certain items, according to the Worker on the south side the barricades are moved throughout the day. I'll list the items that are there and you can decide which ones to come back for, but the Zygarde cells #70 are only reachable after 8pm: 

- Throat Spray (south side, open around 6pm)
- A daily Berry (from the Worker in the northwest area between 4am and 7:59am)
- Max Potion (above the northeast containers, around 9am) 
- Hidden Galladite (on top of eastern crates, reached from southeast side around 12pm.)
- Assault Vest (above central containers, reached from southeast side around 12pm.)

A former Terror Granbull member lives in the southeastern house, he gives us a Max Potion. In the southwestern house is a Shocker who needs something "eerie" to help him feel better. You have to show him a Pokémon that knows Eerie Pulse (such as Voltorb, Electrode, Lanturn, Heliolisk etc) and he'll give you TM107 Acrobatics. Let's check out our gang's hangout. 

BLACK EMBOAR HQ

Our pal James is here, he's glad to see us and informs us that the crew are preparing to attack the Black Ferrothorns. In the meantime we can help out some of the gang members, like the fellow who is plopped in front of the TV. He gives us Mission 24 Flushed Away: 

24 FLUSHED AWAY

Location: Black [Player] HQ, Antisis City
- Someone's havin' toilet troubles! Help your fellow Black Emboar by retrievin' his socks from the sewer. 

This guy, xD *sigh* he adds that the socks could be covered in grime so we'll have to search real hard for them. We'll attempt that Mission after doing the other ones. The dude on the bike has Mission 46 Odd Odd Docks: 

46 ODD ODD DOCKS

Location: Black [Player] HQ, Antisis City
- It pays to look innocent. Help a fellow Black Emboar smuggle some goods off the port after 8pm. 

Those goods just so happen to be Rose Incense, a favourite of a certain Gym Leader from way back in our adventure :) we are to meet up with the Goon at the port between 8pm and midnight. We'll find him on the eastern side, ready to accept the shipment of Oddish Leaves from Mirskle! Haha, of course who else but Mirskle. Just after the ship leaves a couple of Black Ferrothorn Goons show up hoping to nab the O-Leaves. Our Goon goes off to stash the goods somewhere while we stay to deal with these fools in back to back battles. 

Black Ferrothorn Goon
- Lv49 Ferroseed [Grass/Steel]
Prize: P5040

Black Ferrothorn Goon
- Lv49 Escavalier [Bug/Steel]
Prize: P5040

Our Goon returns with a cop, just in time to arrest the Ferro duo for trying to smuggle Oddish Leaves. Brilliant :) once the coast is clear the Goon says we now have to find the Leaves, he hid them between crates on the western side. Make use of that Dowsing Machine and once you've found them return to HQ (the port Gate guard actually smells the Leaves on us but hey, we're just a kid after all xD nothing suspicious). The Goon rewards us with some Dream Mist, made by that guy up in Dresco Town Mirskle. Just bring him Oddish and you get more Dream Mist. 

Upstairs, of the first 2 Goons speak to the left one if you're up for a fight against the pair of Black Ferrothorn Goons riding in the eastern side of town. This is Mission 3 A Minor Scrap. 

03 A MINOR SCRAP

Location: Antisis City
- The Black Ferrothorn are a menace! Knock around some of their goons to expand the Black Emboar's turf.

That'll teach them, although they warn us about someone named Barbs who'll avenge them. Return to HQ for our reward - a Power Bracer. Another Mission done. Upstairs, the far left Goon gives us Mission 57 Supply and Demand: 

57 SUPPLY AND DEMAND

Location: Black [Player] HQ, Antisis City
- Hit the Black Ferrothorn where it hurts by cutting off the supplies they receive from a scientist.

We're going back to that Scientist who wouldn't sell us stuff. At her house the Goon tries to threaten her into giving up the goods but the woman has all the tools she needs to defend herself - exploding Electrode wired into the floor! Our fellow Goon is knocked back and now it's our turn to weave across the room to the Scientist without setting off the explosives. Here we go: from the entrance go 2 steps left, 1 step up, 1 step left, 2 steps up, 1 step right, 1 step up, 5 steps right, 3 steps down, 1 step left and we've reached her. Up next is our very first battle against a member of the Science Society and boy is it an explosive one, watch out.

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- All the Electrode get their Attack raised just so they can go out with a literal bang. Nasty.

She sets an explosive off while trying to escape and is out cold. Go and inspect the window, that's where we find the stat enhancers. The Goon takes them and the Pokémon on the table back to HQ. Create space in your party and speak to him to receive an Alolan Grimer Egg. Now we can tackle that Flushed Away Mission, or die trying. Use the HQ stairs.

We're done with the sewers for now, exit and return to HQ. James and the guys are ready to face the Black Ferrothorns. They plan to attack from the sewers. Here comes Mission 60 The Battle of Antisis: 

60 THE BATTLE OF ANTISIS

Location: Antisis Sewers
- It's time to bring the fight to the Black Ferrothorn! Meet the Black Emboar down in the sewers. 

Prepare if you need to and then go back to Area 2 of the sewers, all the way south from the pipe entrance. James has planted a bomb to create an opening into the Black Ferrothorn's HQ, it goes off and the crew invade!

BLACK FERROTHORN TURF

-1F-

Some Goon battles already in progress here, James has made his way to the top floor to confront Barbs so move on up.

-2F-

Gotta be careful here because the floor has those exploding Electrode traps. From the stairs move 2 steps left, 2 steps down, 3 steps left, 1 step up and then pause to observe that Ferro Goon's movement pattern because we have to make our way down to the tile just under the second potted plant from the bottom of the corridor. If he sees us we'll be sent back to the stairs. Once you've reached that tile, go 1 step right, 1 step down and get next to that box on the right. 1 step down, 2 steps right, 1 step up and then simply circle around to reach that item ball below (Rare Candy). 

-3F-

No explosives here. There's a hidden Poké Doll by that box in the corner and that Goon on the left is one we can fight. No info about the following Goon battles so I'll leave their Levels blank.

Black Ferrothorn Goon
- Ferroseed [Grass/Steel]
- Klang [Steel]
- Throh [Fighting]
- Mawile [Steel/Fairy]
Prize: P4960

To open that door we'll have to win a little round of Simon Says: watch the flashing light sequence of the machine towers on the upper right and turn them on accordingly - top, right, top, left, right.

- Pawniard [Dark/Steel]
- Lairon [Steel/Rock]
Prize: P5040

There are explosives in the southwest area, get to the bottom row of tiles (there should be 5 tiles between you and the box in the corner). Take 2 steps left, 2 steps up, get to the potted plant and then the Full Restore. Now for the towers: bottom left, bottom right, top left, bottom right, bottom left, top left, top right.

-5F-

Hidden Max Potion by the box below. One would think that Goon is just there to promote this latest puzzle: left, bottom right, bottom left, bottom right, right, left, bottom left, top. But he'll play interference when you light up the right side tower. 

Black Ferrothorn Goon
- Ferroseed [Grass/Steel]
- Sawk [Fighting]
- Bronzong [Steel/Psychic]
Prize: P3920

After the battle just continue the sequence (left, bottom left, top). 

-6F-

Top floor, check on your team if you need to and then proceed into Barbs' room. James doesn't believe that Barbs will fight fair so he pimps up our team before we take on Barbs. Plus there's a Chansey available if a restart point is needed. There's a Max Elixir almost hidden by the bottom right wall. There can only be one gang in this city and it ain't the Black Ferrothorn!

We won this fight but not the brief war because we are still outnumbered :/ James decides that it's best for the gang to leave town, maybe we'll meet again someday. As much as Barbs respects us and all he still goes on to kick us out. Outside we'll pick up a Heracronite with a note from James, it just says that we're all that is left of the gang now. How do we keep up the good fight when we've become a gang of one? Damn. So ends our disorganised crime adventure, the only thing left to do around here is meet Big Mo. 

[g6] ANTISIS CITY GYM

Leader: Big Mo - The Top Link in the Food Chain!

We find out that Big Mo's a big fan of Fighting-types and the Gym involves a Ring Challenge in which Flying, Psychic and Fairy-type moves can't be used. Also there could be restrictions in the Gym Leader battle too, we'll be told about those later. Speak to the Roughneck above to learn the rules and then dump all but one of your Pokémon in Storage. In between battles the Pokémon will be healed. Our first opponent is Riff.

Indeed, Big Mo is the same guy who gave us the Devon Scope. Small world. He's the real big boss around here, keeping theAntisis underground world in check and he found out about the big gang mini war from earlier. The battle for Badge #6, here we go!

Let's start with the top side: slide onto the ice from top right corner. Then slide left and up to get a hidden Ice Stone. Simply slide right, down and left to get that Full Restore below. Back to the ladder, slide onto the ice from the top left and then slide right, up and onwards to get that Calcium up top. After getting it slide down, left and down to the rock which is above from the ladder. Slide all the way east, up and get that Dusk Ball in the northeast section. Those Skiers on the left...is that a nod to the trio of Ace Trainers that have a secret training spot in Johto? Slide out of that northeast corner and get underneath the smaller one of the 2 rocks directly below. From there slide left, down, right and you can go on to pick up that Moon Stone. Slide back to the left, up, left, down, left and all the way south then southeast so we can face Charlie before getting the Wise Glasses.

Skier Charlie

- Lv51 Aerodactyl [Rock/Flying]
- Lv51 Noivern [Flying/Dragon]
Prize: P2048

Back onto the ice: left, up, left, up then right, down, left and up to face a small rock. Turn left, slide up, right and down onto the Skier trio's area. There's a hidden Snowball on the left. The first two Skiers engage us in a Double Battle: 

Skiers Anna and Ruby

We won't join the club but we'll gladly accept that Glalitite. Make your way back to the ladder and slide onto the ice from the bottom right. The last rock you end up at has a hidden Blue Shard. Reach the stairs and head for the exit below to get a Rose Incense that we would see on a cliff on Route 2. Back inside to solve a small puzzle: the idea is to move that boulder to the hole on the left and fall in after it. Once you're back in that B1F just slide up to get a hidden Big Pearl from the tall rock that's in front of you. Then slide down, left, down, left, up, right and you can finally grab that TM14 Blizzard. Done and done. 

/BELLIN TOWN\
- Next to the northeastern house: TM97 Frost Breath. Remember this is the house of Terrance - that man who became Alolan Sandslash's Trainer. He's up for a friendly match if you are. Let's see if his training has been paying off.

Push him down then to the right off the ice, for helping him you get TM07 Hail.

-1F-

Head up to find a Clown who is stuck on a frozen floor, we have to push him off the ice. Slide onto the ice, make sure you end up above him then after accepting his request he'll slide down. Simply slide to the left, down and right off the ice. He'll reward you with TM07 Hail. Across the pool on the upper right is a ladder, climb it.

-B1F-

Scale down the first wall, you'll see an Item Ball just below, that's an Ice Stone. On the right you'll see Zygarde cells #4 and way down below is one of the Regi (?!). As you make your way to that southeast area, use the Dowsing Machine on the southwest side to locate BrightPowder. The Icy Hole Raid Den is here too. We get to Regigigas and discover that it isn't the actual one but a statue :/ darn, there's a message written on it though:

A body of rock.
A body of ice.
A body of steel. 
When gathers the three Pokémon the king shall appear.

At least it isn't super cryptic, good to know where Regigigas is.

/ROUTE 2\
- North side cliff: there's a hidden Rock Gem. We can challenge the Crush Kin duo now that we've defeated all the Route 2 and Route 15 Trainers, show them what you're made of :)

- 1F, at the top of the southwestern cliffs: TM79 Dark Pulse. There's another wall to be scaled just above the Hiker below, at the top of it is a ladder leading to the southwest side of 2F. This is where we can pick up Zygarde cells #25. East from there is a bridge, with a hidden Max Potion near it. Across the bridge are a pair of Experts known as the Devil Duo, they've defeated every one who has come their way but even this pair won't face us yet. Maybe we'll check back with them after the League. Back to 1F, western side near the ladder above the Painter: Full Incense. Way over on the northwest side is a Rare Bone. In the northwest section is a Dusk Stone and a Raid Den tablet: 

ENGAGING FROM
BEHIND IS THE
KEY.

...any ideas about that one? Anyone?? It's about that Aggron in the southwest side, approach it from behind and if you succeed Aggron vanishes after the Raid Den entrance is open. Inside is a Solganium Z. Also on the southeast side, upper side, is a Rare Bone. Next to the bridge leading to Hiker Allen is a rock wall, climb down and move to the top side to pick up a hidden Steel Gem.

Now we're ready for Route 17 so head back into Antisis if you need to prepare then let's carry on.

We're finally here, a nice change of scenery after spending some time in Antisis :) What does Seaport have in store for us? 

North of the PokéCenter is the Battle Frontier Gate, but the facility is currently being renovated. We'll find out from the old lady roaming near the PokéMart that Aros helped with its construction. Behind the Mart is TM12 Taunt. In the southwest section of town are Zygarde cells #77 near the warehouse and a Scientist who may have seen that Electivire-stealing Scientist from some time back. He saw her going to the Eastern Warehouse on the docks and he mentions that there's a password hidden under one of the crates. Go south to the beach and surf to the tiny island below for a hidden Slowbronite. Back to the Scientist and just east from him is the former Inverse Double Battle House, now it's the Camomons Battle House. The guy by the entrance won't move so we'll check out the house later. Right next door is the Breeder's School, speak to the male Breeder in the east corner for Mission 23 Flaming Body: 

23 FLAMING BODY

Location: Pokémon Breeder's School, Seaport City
- Let's get cracking! It's time to hatch 10 Eggs total!

Succeed and you'll get a Baby Monitor (lets you check how the Pokémon left at the Day Care are doing, showing their current Levels and number of Eggs) and Mission 09 Armoured Magma: 

09 ARMOURED MAGMA

Location: Pokémon Breeder's School, Seaport City
- Things are starting to heat up! Hatch 50 Eggs total!

Complete that one and receive a Lv50 Ditto with perfect IVs, a different Trainer ID, Metal Powder AND Mission 39 Master Incubator: 
 

39 MASTER INCUBATOR

Location: Pokémon Breeder's School, Seaport City
- Can you prove you're the master of hatching? Hatch 100 Eggs total!

This one gets you the Magma Stone: 

"This key item will reduce the number of egg cycles needed to hatch a Pokémon by half and this effect will stack with the effect Flame Body or Magma Armor. Therefore, egg cycles will be quartered with both effects." - Official Guide. We also need the Magma Stone in order for Heatran to appear in the post-game!

The female Breeder above him will look after one of your Pokémon. If you have a Pichu bring it to the guy sitting at the back of the class, he just wants to pet one so let him and he'll give you the Spiked Ear Pichu which we'll need for a Legendary summoning later :) it's holding a Light Ball. The Breeder on the top left will give you an Everstone if you show him a Pokémon that cannot evolve. The top right Breeder wants to see a female Pokémon that knows Attract, if you have one she'll give you a Destiny Knot. 

Let's check out the Market: 

[P500 each]
Razz Berry    Magost Berry  Durin Berry
Bluk Berry    Rabuta Berry  Belue Berry
Nanab Berry   Nomel Berry
Wepear Berry  Spelon Berry
Pinap Berry   Pamtre Berry
Cornn Berry   Watmel Berry

The Battle Girl gives us TM114 Natural Gift and if you bought any of those Berries that work with the move, she will give out information about them. There's a hidden Max Revive by the right side blue pot. 

[P1000 each]
Fast Ball
Level Ball
Lure Ball
Heavy Ball
Love Ball
Friend Ball
Moon Ball

TM53 Energy Ball P20000
TM57 Charge Beam P10000
TM84 Poison Jab P20000

South from the Market is the Battleground house, unfortunately only members are allowed. Below the cliff is a Sticky Barb. Across from the Battleground is a Fisherman's house, he's part of a fancy club known as the Hip Waders and each day he'll tell you a specific Pokémon to catch for a prize like 5 Dive Balls. 

On 1F of the house next to the Mart, if you have a Pokémon that is 20 centimetres long or smaller show it to the Youngster each day for a prize like a Poké Doll. The Pokédex's Smallest Mode will help you out if you're having trouble. The Lady living with him gives out Mission 48 Pangs of Hunger:

48 PANGS OF HUNGER

Location: Seaport City
- A woman hasn't been hungry lately.... 

Show her a Pyukumuku and then a Probopass, the reward for this is 3 Balm Mushrooms. On 2F there's a Medium who wants to see a large Pumpkaboo and she'll give you rewards like 5 Dusk Balls. In the room we'll get a Bottle Cap from the Ruin Maniac, he found it while digging through the collapsed doorways in the KBT Expressway with his ADM. Apparently it does quite a number on the old wallet xD, I can't wait to find out how much this item costs. His roommate wants to see big Pokémon each day e.g. a Pokémon which is more than 7 metres long like Steelix and she'll give us prizes like a Fluffy Tail. 

Make some room in your party before going into the next house. On 1F speak to the Parasol Lady from Alola, you get the first Starter for free but need 7 & 8 Badges for the remaining two:  

ROWLET - The Grass Quill Pokémon
Level: 45
Type: Grass/Flying
Ability: Overgrow
Moves: Fury Attack, Leaf Blade, FeatherDance, Brave Bird

LITTEN - The Fire Cat Pokémon

POPPLIO - The Sea Lion Pokémon

At night her busy hubby will be home and he'll give you a random Berry. In the corridor is the owner of this building, he could help us secure a home for that old man we met in Epidimy Town...but this guy needs help finding his beloved Pokémon who ran away after the two of them had a fight. He'll follow us as we search around town for the "real estate queen" who is small and pink. Exit and return to the town beach, we find the man's Skitty about to be caught by a Biker and a Burglar who are looking to sell it. Stop, thieves! 

Burglar Swizer and Black Ferrothorn Bullo
- Lv53 Combusken [Fire/Fighting]
- Lv52 Shieldon [Rock/Steel]
- Lv53 Garbodor [Poison]
Prize: P9920

The thugs run off, but from the sounds of it they aren't done with the man. He reunites with Queenie the Skitty and we must take them back home. When we reach the front door though the man suddenly vanishes and Swizer comes back to tell us we should head over to the western warehouse to rescue the man. Also, we must only bring Pokémon which are Ice or Fairy-types. How specific. Sort your team out, make sure to have someone who can move boulders and let's go.

SEAPORT WESTERN WAREHOUSE

Swizer meets us here and says the man is downstairs. If you need to leave the warehouse for any reason just talk to Swizer. Once in the basement go south, the first left turn just leads to a Worker who hears Mimikyu's cry. Mimikyu can be found here once a day, with a 5% chance of holding a Chesto Berry. The fun begins along the next turn, we find a pair that Swizer brought in to deal with us. 

Black Ferrothorn Goon and Burglar Milan
- Lv53 Tentacruel [Water/Poison]
- Lv51 Ferroseed [Grass/Steel]
- Lv51 Alolan Sandshrew [Ice/Steel]
- Lv53 Torkoal [Fire]
- Lv53 Escavalier [Bug/Steel]
Prize: P9680

Proceed to take the next turn all the way north where we find Queenie's owner. He's rattled but unharmed and will accompany us. Head east then south to pick up a Rare Candy. Back track to go west, just before we face the next guys go southwest to get a Max Elixir (while down there you might see Mimikyu at the end of the corridor below). 

Black Ferrothorn Goon and Burglar Colin
- Lv52 Wormadam (Trash Cloak) [Bug/Steel] 
- Lv52 Seviper [Poison]
- Lv51 Pawniard [Dark/Steel]
- Lv53 Heatmor [Fire]
- Lv53 Ferrothorn [Grass/Steel]
Prize: P10480

Make your way down to the next corridor to catch Mimikyu. The corridor under that one is the correct way but at the end of the southern-most way are these two: 

Black Ferrothorn Goon and Burglar Hernando
- Lv53 Aggron [Steel/Rock]
- Lv51 Charmander [Fire]
- Lv51 Ferroseed [Grass/Steel]
- Lv51 Litten [Fire]
Prize: P9760

Along the correct way are... 

Black Ferrothorn Goon and Burglar Toby
- Lv53 Steelix [Steel/Ground]
- Lv52 Nidorino [Poison]
- Lv53 Garbodor [Poison]
- Lv52 Torracat [Fire]
Prize: P9920

In the southeast corner is a Max Potion, then move up to check for a hidden Audinite before returning to the first floor. Swizer and Bullo are waiting for us with an improved team. One more round against these clowns.

Swizer and Bullo have had enough and they leave for good. Take the man back to his home so we can finally talk business. Super good news for the homeless man - he will be allowed to live on the next floor for free! Hurry back to Epidimy Town to share the news and then come back to check on him. He has settled in nicely and as a reward he gives us an Icium Z. Good ending all round :) 

On the northwest side of the docks is the KBT Expressway entrance, inside we'll find the Dragon Gem Family member (Scale Shot for 3 Dragon Gems) and then the Water Gem Family member (Liquidation for 3 Water Gems) just a little further on. There is a Clown to be found here in the Seaport City Port (during the post-game) after you've rescued all the other Clowns. He'll reward you with a Castform. 

To the right of the Shipyard entrance is a hidden Dive Ball and a ship that will take us to Polder Town once we get an S.S. Ticket. In the Shipyard go to the northeast corner for Zygarde cells #78. The Workers below tells us a bit more about the ADM - it performs the same functions as HMs Rock Smash, Strength, Cut and Fly plus TM Dig. Colour me very impressed :) I like it when games offer Key Items like that especially for Flash, Cut, Defog and Rock Climb which are more useful outside of battles than in them. As for that protoype of "The Shadow", is that going to have a role in the post-game update? Or even later on in this one?? And who is this "Z" fellow??? We can make a note of the 2 Scientists: the woman might be able to convert Shards into Creation Plates later on and the man says he can craft a rare item for us if we bring him 4 Sea Shells and 4 Sea Salts from the ocean floor. That rare item is a Shell Bell. Then we meet Davy himself, who says only high society people can afford to buy the ADM and so he won't even give us a price for it until we've proven ourselves. It's that expensive, huh? Darn. Leave the Shipyard and let's visit the Eastern Warehouse down below, it's time to confront that Scientist and hopefully save Electivire. Just outside the Warehouse is a Kalos woman who will raise one Pokémon's IVs in exchange for Bottle Caps (regular ones or Gold ones). 

SEAPORT EASTERN WAREHOUSE

Zygarde cells #79 on the left. The numbers code for the door are written on the back of the bottom left crate. In the basement go to the bottom right corner to find a hidden Dubious Disc. Circle round to the southwest corridor for TM99 Wild Charge then move over the blue containers on the upper left and up them. We can see that Scientist in the room ahead, don't go in yet, carry on to the end of the corridor to pick up a Max Revive. When we enter the room we find her injecting Electivire, she sees us and admits that she wanted us to follow her here just so we can be a part of her experiment. She then orders Electivire to attack us.

>>POKé BOSS FIGHT<<

Electivire 
Level: 50
Type: Electric
Ability: Motor Drive
Moves Known: Discharge, Fire Punch, Quick Attack, Screech

**BATTLE NOTES:

Another loss for the woman of science, but thanks to that power of Hidden Grottos which she has harnessed there will definitely be another round against her in the future. For now though she leaves us alone and we can check on Electivire, it is back to normal and is ready to be returned to its Trainer. When we return to Epidimy, make space in your party and speak to the Nerd for the rewards: an Electirizer, a Power Weight, a Gold Bottle Cap and an Elekid Egg that has Perfect IVs and an Adamant Nature. Mission accomplished indeed. 

Back at the Seaport docks, east of the warehouse is a box between coloured pots - check it for a hidden Full Heal. Near the Port entrance is the Super Rod Fisherman, he has decided to give up the rod after being the greatest Fisherman ever for so long. Accept the Super Rod and continue his legacy. In the Port we find Jax and Arthur receiving some bad news, the S.S. Marine that should be taking us to East Borrius is having engine trouble. But the good news is there's the other ship near the Shipyard, and Jax has an S.S. Ticket for us. The S.S. Marine sails to East Borrius on Mondays and Fridays then back to West Borrius on Sundays and Wednesdays. Look lively ladies and gentleman, we are about to leave West Borrius. Prepare for the next chapter of our adventure :)

No time to enjoy the moment of arriving in this new place, Jax sees that something is going on at the top of Crystal Peak - a crazy storm from the looks of it. Jax and Arthur will go on ahead while we first get Badge #7 from here, that's what we need in order to move over waterfalls. The S.S. Marine travels back to West Borrius on Sundays and Wednesdays. 

In the southwest corner of town are Zygarde cells #89 and the home of a man who needs help getting his daughter out of a TV-induced coma. What was she watching exactly, xD?? This is Mission 77 Too Much TV: 

77 TOO MUCH TV

Location: Polder Town
- Find a scientist who studies brain activity to help wake a little girl from her coma. 

The Scientist we need to speak to is at the Dream Research Lab, he's the guy on the northwest side. Turns out that girl's situation isn't an isolated case, there are 5 children around Borrius who can't stop watching TV. That first girl counts as one so 4 remain, here are their locations: 

-> 1F room of the Seaport City apartment building where the former homeless man now lives. 
-> Southwest house in Bellin Town. 
-> 2F room of the northeast apartment building in Blizzard City. 
-> The house on the south side in Crater Town's crater, home of the girl who wants to see a Swarm Pokémon each day.

Return to the Dream Research Lab and speak to the Scientist, he has collected enough data and goes off to cure the children. When he comes back he says he noticed a strange Pokémon leave their bodies while he was curing them. What could that be? Go back to Polder Town and talk to the man who gave us this Mission. He caught that strange Pokémon after it left his daughter and now we'll receive it from him if we have space in the party: 

Rotom - The Plasma Pokémon
Level: 50
Type: Electric/Ghost
Ability: Levitate
Moves Known: Ominous Wind, Hex, Substitute, Trick

Not too bad :) Mission completed. The northeast warehouse in Antisis City has the electrical appliances that Rotom can interact with to change forms, just search any of the boxes. 

Outside the Mart is a Beauty and her trio of Croagunk, each day she will tell you which one of them to watch before they perform a routine and if you correctly point it out you get the prize that Croagunk is holding. The Fisherman we met in Gurun Town lives next to the Mart, he's got a sweet gig promoting sporting goods for Cube Corp now. He gives us Mission 11 Average Angler:

11 AVERAGE ANGLER

Location: Polder Town
- It's time to whip out your Rod and get fishing! Hook 10 Pokémon. 

The reward is 10 Dive Balls and Mission 26 Great Piscator:

Location: Polder Town

10 Heart Scales for this one. The third time's the charm, he has Mission 22 for us, Fisher Master:

22 FISHER MASTER

Location: Polder Town
- It's time to plant yourself firm and look onward. Hook 100 Pokémon.

Make room in your party for Feebas after becoming the greatest angler alive :) 

Just southeast from the Fisherman's house is a hidden TinyMushroom. At that southeast house is a Lady who'll want to see a Pokémon which knows a specified move each day and if you have it she'll give you a Heart Scale. Her housemate has Mission 06: 

06 ALL THE RIGHT MOVES

Location: Polder Town
- There are 120 TMs in total. Can you find them all?

The reward for getting all them TMs is a Gold Bottle Cap. While I was in Blizzard City during Mission 70 I saw Alice outside her Gym. She has her own little task for us in the form of Mission 33 If We Were Meant to Fly: 

33 IF WE WERE MEANT TO FLY

Location: Blizzard City
- Are people meant to fly? Steal 20 Pretty Wings from Wingull or Pelipper to find out!

Two rewards for this, first one is the sight of Alice attempting and failing to become the next Icarus haha and then there's a Power Anklet. 

The Safari Zone for this game is unlike the standard Safari Zones we're used to, for one thing there's no exploring different Zones/Areas. Instead it is an actual mini game which involves trying to catch the Pokémon as they move around the screen, the higher the Difficulty Mode the faster the Pokémon move. It's still P500 to play and we still receive 30 Safari Balls. No time limit, the game ends when you've run out of Balls. Speak to the Battle Girl for an extra piece of information about Shiny Pokémon. I imagine many players will like this new Safari Zone while others might prefer the traditional version or at least a modified traditional version. I'm on the fence haha, on one hand I didn't mind moving from Area to Area seeing how each game's Safari Zone has been designed plus seeing which Pokémon were there. I don't like that Running from a Pokémon costs some Safari Balls, because there will be sessions where you're just wasting Safari Balls and money skipping the same Pokémon over and over. That gets really boring very fast. But on the other hand I appreciate the absence of a time limit for this game's version. Here are the Pokémon we'll be playing for:

So, are you ready for the Gym?

[g7] POLDER TOWN GYM

Leader: Tessy - The Gal Gettin' Down and Dirty!

**HMs Needed:Surf.

Ahh, so this is where Mel's old girlfriend moved to. Makes sense. The gimmick for this Gym involves a couple of mechanics: the first one makes all Pokémon in battle change to the types of their first 2 moves. I wasn't aware of this mechanic being what the Camomon Battle House is all about, interesting. The second mechanic keeps us from spending too much time in the water because of a wave (the screen hazes over completely every 6 steps then clears up again). If you're caught while still in the water you will be sent back to the entrance. Fun times ahead :) That platform nearest to the entrance is occupied by Nicholas. 

Fisherman Nicholas

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Anita has 1 Hyper Potion.

Get to the platform which is just northeast from hers then aim northwest and you'll get to Tessy's place. During her introduction it suddenly raining, talk about perfect timing. Changing types and an ongoing shower, that should make for an interesting match for Badge #7!

There we go, traded Pokémon of all levels will obey us now, Max Potions are now being sold and we have one more Badge to chase after. Gym Guide dude has a Water Gem for us and as a nice bonus Tessy had the HM that we need right now because it is that magical time once again. Get ready.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
>THE SHORT BACKTRACK: WATERFALL EDITION<
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

/ROUTE 4\
- We can now reach the hidden Full Restore which is by the small rock on the western bank above the bridge. On the eastern bank is a hidden Starf Berry. At the top of the major waterfall are a hidden PP Max, Zygarde cells #14 and TM119 Sky Drop above a Rock Climb spot. 

/VALLEY CAVE\
- B1F western side: Toxic Orb.

After the Pokémon uses Sweet Scent we're attacked by a Grimer and a Raticate, both are Lv45. Once they're taken care of speak to the Clown again to receive TM109 Defog. Was that the briefest Backtrack ever? Sure seems that way :) Return to Polder Town and prepare for Cootes Bog.

SWARM: Croconaw [Water]

Tessy is out here with a Mission which concerns her Swampert but don't accept it yet because she'll tag along and make most encounters a Double Battle. So I propose we explore the Bog first and then come back to Tessy. That Scientist up top also has a Mission, Mission 32 Hunter of the Swamp:

32 HUNTER OF THE SWAMP

Location: Cootes Bog
-  Help a scientist learn about the Pokémon living in Cootes Bog! Use the DexNav to help catch them all.

- Lv51 Wynaut [Psychic]
Prize: P2976

Just below the next bridge platform is a hidden TinyMushroom. Cross that bridge, on the other side is Trainer Tips signpost #35 and we've come back to the beginning so let's hear Tessy's story: her Swampert which serves as the protector the Bog has gone missing at this time when some familiar troublemakers have appeared to disturb the ecosystem. This is Mission 51 Protector of the Swamp: 

51 PROTECTOR OF THE SWAMP

Location: Cootes Bog
- The Terror Granbull are causin' a ruckus! Team up with Tessy to find her Swampert and restore order. 

Use the bridge path back to the area where we found Psychic Hector, the first Terror Gran-goons are there now. It had been a while since we last saw them. Only the Goon on the right offers a Singles Battle. No info about the Goons in the documents, so I'll leave their Levels blank.

The two Pokémon stop their clash and team up against us. Lv56 each. Feraligatr gets a Speed boost while Drapion's Attack goes up. Drapion leaves after the battle but with Feraligatr still around the Goons spring the trap we heard about - they use some unknown device from the Science Society to Dynamaximise Feraligatr! If you need a Feraligatr, here's your chance to get one!

>>DYNA BOSS FIGHT<<

Feraligatr - The Big Jaw Pokémon

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- The early Speed boost happens here too. 

The Goons are planning to take over Polder Town and set up a new base there, but Swampert escapes from them and that sends the Goons running. Swampert is okay and all is well again. Tessy rewards us with TM120 Nature Power. Good thing we made it to Magnolia Town earlier, so simply Fly back there and let's check it out before we tackle Crystal Peak. 

[016] MAGNOLIA TOWN {The ranch town with the lovely sea breeze}

Nice to know that this is Tessy's hometown, just a hop skip and jump away from her Gym town. In the Moomoo Farm field is a bottle of Moomoo Milk and a hidden Rare Bone by the flower next to it. To purchase more Moomoo Milk speak to the Rancher in the farmhouse. Next to Moomoo Farm is a Bug Maniac who has Mission 15 Butterfly Effect:

15 BUTTERFLY EFFECT

Location: Magnolia Town
- Scour both West and East Borrius to find the Vivillon hidden about.

There is a guide for this Mission that comes with the game but just in case you didn't get it, here are the locations: 

01 Archipelago: Found on the piece of land in Dresco Town's northeast section. 

02 Continental: Found in the grass near the running Youngster on Route 6. 

03 Elegant: Found above the pond on the eastern side of Vivill Woods.

04 Fancy: Found in the yard of the eastern house in Fallshore City.

05 Garden: Found near the Trainer Tips signpost in the middle of Route 5.

06 High Plains: Found next to the Route 9 river which flows from the northwest into the Auburn Waterway. 

07 Icy Snow: Found above the Rock Climb wall on Route 1. 

08 Jungle: Found above the pond that is west then northwest from Ninja Boy Yokohama in Cootes Bog. 

09 Marine: Found on an island occupied by a Black Belt on the western side of Route 18. 

10 Meadow: Found in the western blue flower field of Flower Paradise. 

11 Modern: Found on the piece of land south of the Seaport City beach.

12 Monsoon: Found below the Rock Climb cliff southwest from the Beauty on Route 12.

13 Ocean: Found on the rocky island next to Route Master Osean on Route 13. 

14 Polar: Found on the northeast slopes of Victory Road's 3F Snowy Area. Rock Climb is needed.

15 River: Found among the trees on the north side of the big island below the Auburn Waterway Gate.

16 Sandstorm: Found at the top of the rocky hill on the south side of the Great Desert

17 Savanna: Found among the trees in the southeastern area of Magnolia Fields. 

18 Sun: Found at the top of the rocky hill above the running Beauty on Route 16's northeastern side. 

19 Tundra: Found just northeast of the "No Fall Damage" Mission Black Belt about halfway through Route 8. 

Complete this one and you'll get a Shiny Vivillon which has perfect IVs, Timid Nature, the Poké Ball design and is holding a Focus Sash. On the right side of the Magnolia Café are Zygarde cells #94. If you're looking for a major daily event spot this is one good example, check the General Guide and Mission documents for the Magnolia Café schedules. Inside you'll get 4 Max Ethers from the middle attendant. The attendant on the right will blend Berries to make juice for P4500. Check the trash bins daily for items.

In the PokéCenter you'll get Light Clay from the Expert. At the southeastern house there's the "Pep Quiz" hosted by Wye, Aha and Ditoh (who?) It's another daily event. To the east of town are the Magnolia Fields, the female Rancher next to the route signboard will teach HiHorsepower for 3 Yellow Shards. Just a small section of the route can be checked out because a female Rancher won't let us proceed until she takes a photo of her footprints. 

There's some grass though, you'll find these monz: 

Tranquill [Normal/Flying]
Noctowl [Normal/Flying] (at Night)
Furfrou [Normal]
Mudsdale [Ground] <5% Light Clay>
Gogoat [Grass]
Miltank [Normal] <Moomoo Milk>
Tauros [Normal]
(SWARM) Quilava [Fire]

We'll come back to explore properly later, return to town and prepare for Crystal Peak. Get to Ranger Betty and carry on east then southeast, we'll meet Bradley. 

Camper Bradley
- Lv52 Alolan Diglett [Ground/Steel]
- Lv54 Kangaskhan [Normal]
Prize: P1280

Go south then west to find a Max Potion across a pond. Back to Bradley and carry on to reach a stream (there's a hidden Colbur Berry here). On the opposite bank is Trainer Tips signpost #36 and the Raid Den entrance right next to it. 

As you surf up you'll see a King's Rock on the left before getting to the waterfall. Above it is the entrance to Crystal Peak...and our Rival Axelrod. One would think he's here to bother us for another Rival battle but it turns out he has been waiting for us here after Jax and Arthur passed through. We will be teaming up with him for the trip to the top, plus he can use Surf and Rock Climb. But before we go in to take on the Light of Ruin goons, Axe wants to make sure we're strong enough.

A bit of a rough fight but we get through it and then here comes Ivory to shake things up even more. Axelrod can't believe that she's still here and still going along with Aklove, he was hoping to stop this plan and reunite with his parents. But Ivory won't change her mind even for her son and sends out Alakazam to knock him aside. He lends us his 3 Pokémon for our fight against Ivory, they'll join our team once the battle starts. You have a chance to save and prepare before speaking to Ivory. She is just here to delay us while Aklove while completes his task...

She's done her job and hopes the other Grunts will get in our way too. After Ivory leaves, Axelrod recovers and we can carry on. No kind words for his mom, and who can blame him after what just happened?

Head east to the next Grunts. The guy on the left offers a Singles Battle. P5080 is the Double Battle prize.

Push up the boulder that's on the left side of the breakable rock once. Smash the rock then push the right side boulder forward and circle round to push the top left boulder aside and continue. Up top we see Marlon and Melony trapped behind a boulder and two rocks. Axe and his Starter free them and we learn that Aklove is about to use the Ultimate Weapon. We're so close to reaching the summit now but Marlon says he had trouble with the next Grunts so he recommends that we find a way to sneak past them. Marlon tells Axe to give us the item that he was tasked with finding, we'll need it for the big confrontation on the summit - the Prison Bottle. Can't seal away the dark force without it. It's interesting to note that Melony isn't convinced yet that Marlon is her father, even though Axe has accepted him. That's a PP Up in the corner. Push that boulder all the way down to block the Grunt's vision and cross over. Clear away the rocks then push the boulder to block the last Grunt. 

-5F-

Porygon and Chansey are here, a sure sign of trouble ahead indeed. Sort out your team and step outside to join Jax and Arthur. They have a plan and while we hear about it things are going smoothly for Aklove and Ivory ahead. The Weapon is fully charged now and ready to be activated. Aklove believes that the ancient Borrians may have used Hoopa to bring it here centuries ago. He proceeds to turn it on but Jax steps in and has Gastrodon interfere with Earth Power. Aklove is shocked to see that he escaped from the Distortion World but he has no problem sending him back there, if only Gastrodon didn't keep Jax grounded with its Sticky Hold Ability. We step up to face Hoopa while Marlon and Axe arrive to stop Ivory from using the Weapon. Back to Hoopa and watch as it opens a portal that brings out Hoopa's special guest tag team partner - Mega Rayquaza! Ring the bell!

Mega Rayquaza - The Sky High Pokémon
Level: 62
Type: Dragon/Flying
Ability: Delta Stream
Moves Known: ExtremeSpeed, DragonAscent, Crunch, Dragon Dance

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Hoopa gets a Defense boost at the start. That Portal Power Ability allows it to keep summoning another Mega Rayquaza when you defeat the one on the field :S like it's a Yu-Gi-Oh! card effect...

After the fight Rayquaza takes off and Hoopa has a serious meltdown, opening multiple portals and sending them in different directions. We use the Prison Bottle to seal away Hoopa's power and it reverts back to its Confined Forme. Aklove has his own meltdown and dismisses Hoopa now that it is no longer useful to him, he attempts to approach the Weapon but Jax catches him and it's up to us to switch off the Weapon. Hoopa wants to join us, it'll be sent to Storage if you've got a full team: 

[hoop] HOOPA - The Mischief Pokémon 

[Confined Forme]
Level: 60
Type: Psychic/Ghost
Ability: Magician
Moves Known: Zen Headbutt, Wonder Room, Trick Room, Shadow Ball

To switch between Forms simply Use the Prison Bottle from the Key Items compartment. When we can move again go northwest to pick up a hidden Green Shard then northeast for Zygarde cells #92 behind a rock. We try to reach the Weapon and are stopped by Aklove, then Axelrod leaves Marlon to continue fighting Ivory while he joins us as we face Aklove. Another Double Battle? Come on :/ the addition of more (or new) major Double Battles into the game is starting to seem a bit much, you know?

Aklove won't accept his defeat and refuses to turn himself in, as he's talking there's a sudden quake and the Ultimate Weapon starts up on its own! It fires a blast of energy and Jax sees Dresco Town has been hit. Aklove thinks that his plan has succeeded and celebrates...then notices that the colour of the cannon is wrong. The man responsible for this shows up - Zeph! He informs Aklove that he tweaked around with the weapon's settings while Aklove was distracted, so instead of destruction the weapon gives life. Zeph survived thanks to his Houndoom which came to his rescue at Cinder Volcano, then he contacted Fey and got here because of Véga. Fey didn't want Aklove to go this far. Aklove is furious, realising that Fey couldn't be trusted and also revealing that the amount of Shadow Warriors energy extracted was just enough for one blast. It's pretty much Game Over for him now, and Ivory thought he was going to use the weapon to bring back her son but nope, Aklove was just using her to get Shadow Warriors. Surprise. Like a classic villain Aklove flees the scene but Jax is on his tail. Zeph apologises to Ivory for not coming to her on time, his window of opportunity was limited after we sealed away Hoopa's power so he had to act quickly and that meant Ivory's child couldn't be revived. Ivory sees the error of her ways and apologises to her family. But she's not ready to join them and flies off to be alone. Arthur shows up with a couple of Rangers to arrest Marlon and Zeph, but since Zeph saved the day here perhaps something can be worked out between him and the authorities. He pleads for Marlon to be left free and then asks him to take care of his son Zeph Jr. while he's away. After Zeph is led away, Axelrod turns back to Rival Mode and wants another battle...another Double Battle and this one is a 2 vs 1 match against Marlon. You get a chance to check on your team before speaking to Axe to start the battle. Like I said earlier, it's getting a bit much xD and we're not even in the post-game yet!

Marlon says to Axe that he didn't need to prove how much stronger he is because to Marlon he has already shown that he's a good Trainer after what has happened here. So now it's time for the family to return home and make up for lost time. Ivory will need time alone to process things and when she's ready Marlon is certain they can find her. As for us our journey continues, Axe is glad that we became friends along the way and urges us to complete the Gym Challenge. Gym #8 is in Redwood Village. 

But before we return to Magnolia Town make sure Hoopa is in the party and Fly back to Epidimy Town, remember that old couple that have the Master Ball? They live next to the Zapdos statue. Show Hoopa to the old lady and receive the Master Ball. You can also visit Arthur and Prof. Log for new dialogue since the region has been saved. Maybe even visit Axelrod and family too. Then back to Magnolia and head east.

Had a quick look just to be sure and yup, nobody is standing in front of the Gym entrance or ambushes players just as they are about walk in...because if you've played enough Pokémon games (especially in the ROMhack & fan-made universe) you'll know that tends to happen :) Let's check out the village: 

In the PokéCenter show the woman on the left a Pokémon that is holding Charcoal and she'll give you Luck Incense. The guy with the handheld console is Balogna the remaining trader, he wants a Zweilous for his special Lampent that comes holding a Ghost Gem. Galavan and the Youngster offer some information about the Gym Leader Benjamin Butterfree, he has Bug-type Pokémon and his Gym puzzle has to do with doing things backwards. For those of you who don't get the reference, it's from the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button about a man who's life went in reverse (born an old man, died as a baby...ah, well, I guess I should've put up a SPOILER tag first (^o^") ). I saw one comment about this Gym and just like Galavan's Gym it sounds like another one we'll have to sit down for and not just because it's the final Gym. 

The old man on the north side of town tells us about the missing Forest Guardian who protects the town. If we can bring along the Guardian's old friend it might return. There's a hidden Tanga Berry behind that house on the right.

In the eastern house is a Socialite who needs someone to mind her grandson while she works daily between 7am and 7pm. Take the baby out for a stroll around town, you can even enter other buildings except the Gym. When you return with the baby and the woman has finished her work she'll pay you P10000. 

A pair of Breeders live in the western house: the Breeder woman will speed up the hatching time of all Eggs in your party for P12500. It's a service which can be used multiple times a day but the price doubles each time, going up to P800000! Her housemate buys unwanted Eggs for P2000. Just south of the house is TM102 Dazzle Gleam hidden by the middle tree top.

Near the Gym are Zygarde cells #97. On the south side of town is a Medium who gives us a Cleanse Tag. Another member of the Hip Waders lives in the southeast house, he has Mission 55 Splishy Splash: 

55 SPLISHY SPLASH

Location: Redwood Village
- They're the most useless Pokémon! Magikarp! Can you place 30 of them in your current Box? 

This one gets you a Shiny Magikarp that has Perfect IVs and a Jolly Nature. Don't worry about Redwood Forest yet because a certain Pokémon has decided to park near the entrance for an extended snooze. In the meantime how about we attempt to get that last Gym Badge? Big key word is "attempt" :)

[g8] REDWOOD VILLAGE GYM

Leader: Benjamin - A Mature Child, or Immature Adult

Because of how Benjamin has designed the Gym, battles have a unique condition that makes fainted evolved Pokémon regress to a previous state, with stats regressing per form AND moves being forgotten!! Mother of Christopher :/ only when a Pokémon can't regress further will they be truly defeated. As a result no EXP is awarded here. In each room there are buttons hidden in rocks, we must press them in the proper order to open a path forward to Benjamin. Roll up them sleeves people, here we go. We'll start from the left side room where we meet Daisy.

Ace Trainer Daisy
- Lv58 Accelgor [Bug] (-> Shelmet)
- Lv58 Scolipede [Bug/Poison] (-> Whirlipede -> Venipede)
Prize: P4216

And that's just the first Gym Trainer xD, wow this makes Galavan's Gym a walk in the park in comparison. Second room from the left has Fuller. 

Ninja Boy Fuller
- Lv57 Ariados [Bug/Poison] (-> Spinarak)
Prize: P1024

Let's not press any buttons yet, move on to the next room and Tizzy.

Expert Tizzy
- Lv58 Yanmega [Bug/Flying] (-> Yanma)
- Lv58 Vikavolt [Bug/Electric] (-> Charjabug -> Grubbin)
Prize: P2480

Go to the last room. 

Bug Catcher Curtis
- Lv58 Beedrill [Bug/Poison] (-> Kakuna -> Weedle)
Prize: P256

So if we remember Benjamin then the button order should be as follows: 
Tizzy's room -> Daisy's room -> Curtis' room -> Fuller's room

Bingo, Benjamin's room is unlocked. If you need to leave the Gym for any reason no problem, the room stays unlocked. At first I did find it a bit intriguing that the final Gym would be based around Bug-types and then we experienced the Gym puzzle. Vicious. Benjamin just wants to prove people wrong about Bug-types by standing between us and the League. After everything that we've been through up to this point not even Benjamin should keep us from going forward, good luck and get that 8th Badge!

(?!) Wow, the dude went all the way back (or forward?) to Kid Ben form xD how much time passed during that single battle?? But if you view your Cube and come back he'll be an old man again, nice trick. Anyway, well done ladies and gentlemen, all 8 Borrius Gyms have been challenged and swept through! Any Pokémon will obey us now, Full Restores are available and if HM Dive was there we can use it too. We also find out about where the Butterfree in Benjamin's name comes from. A sad story but Benjamin certainly found one of the most far out ways to honour his late friend. Collect the Bug Gem from the Guide, we won't be seeing him again because of his job so consider that a nice parting gift. 

My Wishiwashi and Dewgong learned Dive naturally and I thought maybe we could still Dive now but nope, gotta get that ADM and even after getting all 8 Badges ol' Cap'n Davy hasn't changed his story for us. Some good news though, the Camomons Battle House is open now so let's have a look.

South from Hayden's spot are Zygarde cells #82. If you surf west, southwest from the island you'll see a curious rocky island that looks like the third sealed Regi tomb. Noted. Head back to scale the waterfall, above it is a Rich Boy who informs us that Victory Road pretty much starts from here and he gives us 10 Max Repels. Next to the route signboard is the Raid Den entrance. It's great to see the PokéCenter, another fast travel spot for us. Inside is a Cameraman who tells us about the former Champion Artie and his incredible Hall of Fame run. Are you up for the challenge of topping that? This is Mission 29 Hero of the Hall: 

29 HERO OF THE HALL

Location: PokéCenter (Route 18)
- Become a grand Champion! Enter the Hall of Fame with monotype teams.

If you manage to pull this one off you get 1000BP and 18 Big Nuggets. Hmm, not as incredible as in the previous version where you had to enter the Hall 100 times xD! Just to get 5000BP and 30 Big Nuggets. Is skipping credits an option though, enquiring minds need to know :) Galavan is here to wish us good luck. Behind the PokéCenter is a hidden Roseli Berry. Further up is a Rancher/organic alchemist who'll give you P1000 every day if you don't believe money grows on trees and up top is TM59 Dragon Pulse. West from the Rich Boy is the guard who checks for Gym Badges, north from there is Shannon.

He gives us a bunch of Shards (2 Blue Shards, 2 Red Shards, 2 Green Shards, 2 Yellow Shards) that we can trade for moves or hold onto for later with any other Shards that you've collected so far *hint, hint*. All the other Route 18 Trainers have been defeated, go back to take on Reena the Route Master.

(oO?) Oh. Get this - that Psychic near the entrance is not a Trainer, he is a saviour to those of you who have managed your finances well up to this point. If we pay him P200000 he'll teleport players to the other side. Yup, just like that and you can simply swagger on out of here :) I had enough money and got to the League but it was mainly because I needed the fast travel point xD don't judge me. (Also very interesting to note - the Psychic wasn't there in my New Game+ speed run game file and you can just simply slide up to the other side). So for those of you who paid the Psychic just skip the next paragraph, we'll meet at the League. As for the rest of you who have stayed to challenge this puzzle, here we go: 

Slide up onto the ice from the left side of the stairs then left, up and to the northwest rock for a hidden Protector. Slide right, down, right and up to get a hidden Rare Candy. Slide down, left, up to land on unfrozen ground then continue up for the hidden Ice Stone. Back onto the unfrozen ground and slide east to another unfrozen patch, slide down and right for a hidden Rockium Z. Slide left, up, right, up, left, up, left and up. That's it :) rejoice!

At long last ladies and gentlemen, we are at the Borrius League! How long did it take you to get here? For me it's been a journey of about 2 months while working on this walkthrough. I think I've either reached or passed the time it took to work on the Pokémon Clover walkthrough, covering both main and post-game content. The Borrius Victory Road gets a solid thumbs up from me, it was fair (not super easy and not super brutal) and well put together. I was expecting the ice puzzle to be outrageous but you know what, it wasn't that bad. 

On the way up to the League building you'll see Trainer Tips signpost #36. Inside we get the scoop on the Elite 4 members from the guy on the left side and the Ace Trainer: 

01 Moleman
- Uses Ground-types.
- Battle Condition: A never-ending Sandstorm which does more damage than a regular Sandstorm (!) and boosts the Sp. Def of Ground-types. 

02 Elias
- Uses Ghost-types. 
- Battle Condition: All Ghost-types take half damage and are immune to entry hazards when they are at full health thanks to a shadowy veil covering the field. Moves like Safeguard and Substitute will not work when used by a Ghost-type. 

03 Arabella
- Uses Fairy-types.
- Battle Condition: A Misty Terrain is present and Pixies too, of course, which boost the lowest defensive stat of any Fairy-types sent into the field.

04 Penny
- Uses Dragon-types.
- Battle Condition: The rainbow in her room raises the chance of secondary move effects used by Dragon-types. 

Beyond vicious. Makes me wonder what conditions would the Champion have had if there was someone present or even former Champ Artie. Will he pop up at some point for a fight? The Youngster gives out one of the more crazier Missions, numerically it is the very last one and is about taking on the League with just one Pokémon. Madness xD, this is Mission 84 You Are My Only: 


84 YOU ARE MY ONLY

Location: Pokémon League
- Bonds are powerful! Can you clear the Pokémon League with only one Pokémon, and prove your bond?

If you dare and if you succeed then the Ultranecrozium Z will be yours. The Medium tells us that some of the Elite 4 members are Double Battlers so it would be wise to get TM Protect from Fallshore. Damn, Double Battles at the League? At this point, we shouldn't be surprised haha so prepare as best as you can and after some final words from the other Ace Trainer we'll step through and watch as the door is locked behind us. The Elite 4 can be faced in any order but I'll be going in the order of how we found out about them, so we'll start in the left room and meet the Moleman. Check your team, he's one of the Double Battling Elites.

Yeah...MAYBE I should've saved Moleman for last xD, sheesh that was rough. And someone or more thought it would be a wonderful idea to create a Mission where you challenge this League with one Pokémon. Ridiculous xD. On the bright side though - no more Sandstorms! When you're ready we'll go next door for our match with Elias, who is a corpse. Nothing odd about that at all, nope, not one bit. They dug him up and stuffed his body with a ghostly spirit and BOOM, 4 people became available to make up the Elite 4. This reminds me of that Edo Tensei/Reanimation Jutsu technique from Naruto, the only thing missing is for Elias to be some famous ninja from the distant past :) Singles Battle coming up!

Not as rough as Moleman's match but that 1 Full Restore + the Sitrus Berry x Harvest Ability combo + Leech Seed and that shadow veil mechanic...just peachy. Only two out of Elite 4 members and I'm already wondering why am I even here xD. Two more to go, we're halfway done. Room 3 belongs to Her Highness the Fairy Princess (and future Magical Girl) Arabella. She's taking over from her father who quit at some point, will we meet him at some point? A good theme song for this battle would be the main theme from Fairy Tail, cue that up and prepare for a pleasant Singles Battle!

Hm, okay that was a better outing. The Pixie effect is not as troublesome as the previous field conditions so you can make it through this match without too many scars. On to the final room and Elite 4 member Penny, an avid Dragon-type fan judging by her costume and maybe she's an undercover Dragon whisperer too. This is it everyone, we are just one Double Battle away from becoming the Borrian League Champion. Bring everything you got and good luck.

Fantastic :D done and done AND done. Not as smooth as the Arabella fight but just as bearable. So in terms of strategy does one tackle Moleman first to get that match out of the way early or start with Penny and build up to Moleman? Hmm. Anyway, congratulations on defeating the Borrian Elite 4! Proceed through the new doorway and after the next corridor pick up Zygarde cells #88 from the left corner. Just before we go through the doorway ahead we're stopped by....Jax! Of all the times dude, damn xD. Last time we saw him he had gone after Aklove, but the villain got away somehow :/ very not good. Jax reveals that his grandfather "Artie" Arthur was the former Champion until he retired. I feel a bit stupid for not putting 2 and 2 together haha but now we know. He had been training Jax all this time to become the next Champion while we were "training" under Prof. Log by doing those errands. Turns out these two old guys are friendly rivals, how about that :) So we have one more challenge to get through, a Double Battle and it's for all the marbles ladies and gentlemen, let's go.

Mark this day - there is a NEW Champion in the land of Borrius!! That match was just spoiled by Jax constantly switching his monsters in and out, not fun at all while trying to get that battle information. Outside of the switching, it was a fair fight...but I'm not eager to rematch against him anytime soon haha, maybe MUCH MUCH later on. Thank goodness it didn't have a ridiculous field condition like in the Elite 4 battles. Jax congratulates us and we follow him into the Hall of Fame for the induction. The credits begin with us being seen off by the Elite 4 and Jax outside the League building. They can't be skipped so sit back and enjoy them while taking in this moment. That was quite the main game adventure, huh? Absolutely incredible, so one has to wonder if the post-game side of things can and will top all of that content because the bar has been set pretty high :) prepare yourselves, the post-game chapter of our journey is next! 

POST-GAME ARC


We have made it back to Frozen Heights and there's a message congratulating us for completing the main campaign. All Battle Difficulties are now unlocked and of course now that we're the Champion there's lots to do. Then we're joined by Axelrod and Marlon, who is back in uniform. Interesting. Axe tells us that the Battle Frontier is ready now so he and Marlon are going to over there. Ivory is still missing, which is why Marlon is in uniform again - it might make the search for her easier since she wore a uniform too. He's also trying to find a way to free Aros from the Cube. If he stumbles upon a breakthrough Marlon will have a Mission for us. After father and son leave we meet Prof. Log, who just has to be super happy now about having a major win over his old rival haha. You're welcome. He informs us that portals have started appearing across the region as a result of defeating Hoopa at Crystal Peak. Powerful Pokémon will come out of these portals if approached. We'll have to capture them in order to close the portals, but not all the portals will disappear afterwards though. This is Mission 50 Portal Purge: 

50 PORTAL PURGE

Location: Frozen Heights
- Capture Pokémon in the mysterious portals appearing around Borrius!

Our main Mission gets updated too, we should check on Mom. But when we enter our house we don't find her. Huh, where has she gone? There's a note on the table: 

Player,

I have taken your mother into the depths of the Ruins of Void.

Come alone if you ever want to see her again.

-A 

(?!) No way, he's back! That lousy, no good, mother-- stealing scumbag has popped up again and what a way let us know. Ohh it's on now. Fly back to Seaport City, we have to speak to Captain Davy about that ADM. While we're Seaport and now that the Battle Frontier is open you can go there to pick up Zygarde cells #76, they are on the left side behind the fence after passing through the Gate. We'll receive the Frontier Card in there from the lady who told us that the place was being renovated previously. With that card, if you take part in Raid Battles you'll receive a few BP as an extra reward. Any questions about the Battle Frontier, speak to her. The Ace Trainer in the Gate gives us Mission 40 More Than A Game:  

40 MORE THAN A GAME

Location: Battle Frontier Gate (Post-Game)
- Breathe the ethos of battle! Enter battle facilities 100 times.

200BP is the reward for this one. We'll explore the Battle Frontier properly later, return to Davy's Shipyard and find out the price of the ADM: $500000. 

Yup, let those zeroes sink in and settle for a bit. How much do you have? I've only got close to P150000 so no chance :/ There is some good news though, we can make enough money to buy the ADM by selling stuff that we find in the Tomb of Borrius. Challenge Accepted?

There's a hidden Relic Copper behind the middle eastern pillar. The Ruin Maniac who was trying to solve the tile puzzle is Fred, he's been here with his colleagues for weeks and they are completely stumped by the puzzle. These guys probably haven't visited the Ruins of Alph because the puzzle is of the multi-coloured marvel Ho-oh. As soon as we solve it, the floor beneath us opens and down we go!

Fred checks to see if we're all right. We're fine but most importantly we've solved the puzzle that couldn't be cracked by the best from the Archeology Society :) *mini happy dance* He joins us down here via a ladder and we receive Mission 76 Tomb Raider, a chance to make Lady Croft proud: 

76 TOMB RAIDER

Location: Tomb of Borrius (Post-Game)
- A hole has opened up into the depths of a tomb! Explore it and solve its mysteries.

Just up ahead of us is the first sign of trouble - a Dusknoir. If it sees us we'll be sent back to the ladder. Further up is a second Dusknoir and a pressure plate in the top right corner. Smash the left rock, move up with that first boulder and smash the bottom one of the two rocks in front of that second Dusknoir. Push the first boulder onto the plate. No more wall of flames. Take that second boulder along with you into the new corridor and block the 3rd Dusknoir. Carry on to find a 4th Dusknoir, leave it and push up either of the two boulders below it onto the plate, this will make that 5th Dusknoir look away and you can move up to search for a hidden Relic Copper just above it. Go back down to get the other boulder, block Dusknoir #6 and climb on out of here.

Wow...out of the pan and into the fire xD, what is this place doing in a tomb?? Eternal thanks to King Borrius III. On the left side is a hidden Relic Silver. Jump down and skip along the rocks until you can go north, there's a platform that has a Relic Copper. Come back and go south all the way until you're going east then northeast and north to another platform with another Relic Copper. Carry on to the next platform which is on the north side, touch the rock on it and somewhere the path of rocks has changed. Jump back onto the rocks, go right then south to reach the Relic Copper. Continue east from that platform to reach the one along the eastern wall, touch that rock and hop along the new path back to the previous platform. Head south and onto a new platform with a rock that doesn't react to any touch, carry on south to the next platform that has a Relic Silver. Hop onto that platform on the left and touch that rock. That new path going northwest leads back to the ladder so go south and continue all the way until you're back on the north platform. Don't touch the rock yet, go south to pick up another Relic Silver. Back up to touch the rock and back track to the far south side and go southeast to find a new ladder.

And now we have a visual puzzle. If any of you played Pokémon Clover you'll remember this type of puzzle was used in Snoop Dogg's Gym (for those of you who didn't play Clover for whatever good reasons, yes, Snoop is in it. Don't ask why). The more you progress through the area, the blurrier the screen gets, Fred thinks the Dusknoir are causing this. Great. If you go straight north then west along the north wall you'll get to a hidden Relic Silver near the northwest end. Back to the ladder, go west along the south wall to reach Zygarde cells #60. Back to the ladder, go up to turn left and carry on along the upper side to avoid Dusknoir. Once you can't go left, turn south until you can't move further then go east and south, now you have to time Dusknoir before rushing all the way west and up to the ladder. Who comes up with messed up puzzles like this?? Not a good idea at all.

But wait, there's more: here the floor is cracked, we'll need to fire up the Motorbike's Turbo boost and race over to the northeast side. The only positive thing about falling through the floor is that you'll at least drop next to the ladder. There are hidden items here but look at what we're dealing with here xD, we'll try though and feel free to slow down your emulator otherwise you'll be spending plenty of time loading/reloading that save file. From the ladder go straight down, aiming to stop just before the crack which will be on the bottom right. If you succeed, face north and search that stone for a hidden Relic Vase. Back to the ladder, this time make your way to the 4-tiles sized space just after the first right side turn. North from there are a hidden Relic Silver and an Relic Gold on the left. Back to that 4-tiles space, launch from the top right to go southeast for TM21 Frustration. Very appropriate :) well placed. Back to the 4-tiles space, launch from the bottom left tile and go northeast. Stop in the 2-tile space before reaching the ladder to pick up a hidden Relic Gold. From there ride to the southeast corner for a Relic Band. You know what to do now to reach the ladder, so get to it and we finally enter the burial chamber.

Phew. Let's see Croft pull that stuff off, because until she does we're the real Tomb Raiders here dammit :) Fred joins us to confirm we're where we should be and heals our team. There's a hidden Relic Vase behind the upper left pillar. Collect all the other Relics then touch the coffin-- a Pokémon suddenly appears on top of it as the defense system is triggered (!?) and it goes into Dynamax mode immediately! What the--

[mage] MAGEARNA - The Artificial Pokémon

Level: 70
Type: Steel/Fairy
Ability: 
Moves Known: Max Knuckle(Aura Sphere), Shift Gear, Max Steelspike(Iron Head), Max Guard(Crafty Guard)

Leave it to King Borrius III to have one more surprise in his resting place. I've only encountered Magearna in another ROMhack, and even back then I didn't know it existed. This is what happens if you stopped really keeping up with Pokémon when Gen 3 ended :) anyway, with Magearna caught/defeated a doorway leading out of the chamber opens and so ends our harrowing treasure hunt. Fred is off to share his valuables with the Archeology Society crew, but before he leaves he gives us something he picked up - a Psychium Z. Mission accomplished. 

Fly back to Gurun Town and enter the house that's just above the PokéCenter, remember this place? The Black Belt wanted Relic items, so sell him those Relics. You should make just enough cash to pay for the house, send the kids to college AND get the ADM. After we receive it, Captain Davy also throws in HM05 Dive. The ADM, part HM substitute and part treasure hunting machine. The KBT Expressway walls and seafloor have plenty of treasure, Press R when you're there after setting the R button Mode to Mining Scan in the Options Menu. The ADM will indicate where we can search for treasure by showing a quick flash (think of the Trick House from Hoenn, when you were told someone was watching from somewhere - that quick flash). Excellent, now we can Dive and we finally got the ADM. Saving Mom is what we will do first and then when everything has been settled with Aklove we'll take the ADM out for a proper spin. Prepare yourselves and your teams then return to the Ruins of Void.

A portal is there and after we reach into it, Raikou and Entei come out of it and leave the room before the portal closes. They are now roaming around the region (you'll see them on the Town Map) and we must have them in our party for Suicune to appear here. Later. Return to the B2F cliffs and scale down the wall which leads to the Dive spot.

Look at what we have here, ADM Underwater Mode :D double thumbs up, no wonder this thing costs so damn much haha. It certainly brings back memories of the old Captain Nemo cartoon from the 1970s. That south way leads to a small section of Route 14 where you'll find a Red Shard in the pink coral in the bottom left corner and Sea Salt on the southern end. After getting those come back and go east and through the cave entrance. Search the far left rock for a hidden Blue Shard then find the next entrance in the northwest and one more entrance in the northeast side of the next area (check the rock in the western side for a hidden Yellow Shard). Once you're there go all the way south to search the lower rock for a hidden Green Shard and to pick up a Sea Shell. Make a note of this spot. Return to the main area, carry on east and check the south rock for a hidden Green Shard before using that Resurface spot right next to it. After resurfacing surf west and north to scale a wall that leads to TM48 Skill Swap. Back underwater and go north. Remember to use the Mining Scan function to check around for digging spots and if you find one: 

~Digging for Treasure Mini Game~

The ADM is equipped with a sledgehammer and a pickaxe, alternate between them to dig up stuff before the wall collapses (indicated by the developing crack along the top of the screen). Sledgehammer to clear away the big rocks and pebbles then pickaxe to break through. If you fail you can't retry until you locate another digging spot so make sure you saved before attempting this. Have a look at the Mining sheet in the General Guide for the item percentage rates.

Along this corridor is a Resurface spot but further up at the end of the corridor is a tablet with this message: 

DEFEATING
TOXAPEX
IS THE KEY.

That spot you made a note of earlier is where we will find that particular Toxapex later. Resurface and go through that entrance on the left.

If you've never liked Claydol then you're in for a real treat because we'll be seeing a number of them here as they play hall monitor. The first Claydol we find is going east and west along this corridor and another one is moving along the far left corridor where there is an ancient switch that removes the barricade in the middle corridor. Timing is everything. After reaching and flipping the switch, move along that middle corridor then watch for the next Claydol before turning right to flip the next switch. If you go all the way left you'll find a hidden Dire Hit in the top left corner and another Claydol, to avoid that one you have to go south to the small hiding space along the right wall. But you'll get there just in time to spot the next Claydol below. You have to get all the way to the bottom then southwest for another switch, however that south side corridor has 2 other Claydol. After flipping that southwest switch, go for the corridor heading west just above that one, things are a little tricky here because there is no hiding place between the 2 Claydols coming up. The only positive thing is that if either of them sees us we simply go back to the end of the corridor leading to those 2 Claydol. You're just going to need to time that first Claydol, hoping the second one is retreating and make it to the top corridor seconds before the second Claydol is turning south again. When you've made it into the top corridor, you'll see a 3rd Claydol but fortunately the following corridor has a hiding spot in the wall a little further down. Unfortunately there's another Claydol on the south side and its movement pattern is shorter, but there is a another hiding spot below. Don't rush to go all the way south because, surprise, one more Claydol is there but so is one more hiding spot (there's a hidden Psychic Gem here) along that south corridor. Another Claydol is on the far left, you'll only see it once you step out from that spot and hope you'll have a chance to avoid it before the Claydol of this corridor catches you. In that far left corridor is a switch. After flipping it you have to move into that middle corridor, the safe spot in it is the space just before the left turn. Don't go left, you have to go straight up for the next switch. That switch removes the barrier that is at the end of that left turn, another Claydol was behind it. That final Claydol is next to a ladder and is ready for a fight - Dynamax style!

Claydol - The Clay Doll Pokémon
Level: 80
Type: Ground/Psychic
Ability: Levitate
Moves Known: Max Mindstorm, Max Rockfall, Max Quake, Light Screen

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Claydol's Defense gets a major boost at the start.

Claydol disappears after we've proven ourselves, climb the ladder and come face to face with Aklove!

Chansey is here if you need to heal. Mom is there of course but so are Arthur and Zeph Jr. (?) how did they get involved? If you return to B1F you'll see that the all Claydol are gone now, so this is a good chance to search for hidden items and pick up items (such as the Nugget and flipping the switch at the end of the southeastern corridor at the beginning. Doing this will free the Dusclops that we've seen trapped on B3F). I'm going to cover the Dusclops puzzle next, you can try to tackle it now or skip the paragraph and save it for after we deal with Aklove.

As you head up the middle corridor you'll notice that the left side way occupied by the Dusclops is open now. Make it past the Dusclops and reach another one of the ancient switches waiting to be flipped. Once you're back in the main corridor continue north and go into the second right side turn, the Dowsing Machine will lead you to a hidden Ghost Gem in the corner before you go south and see a Bronzong patrolling that way. It's the first of 3, the other 2 are near another switch at the end of that corridor. If you flip that switch all the Bronzong and Dusclops will disappear and the Raid Den is revealed. Go there and pick up a Marshadium Z, you can now obtain Marshadow by using the Mystery Gift code 5GQ3CU5UZ7WS on the second floor of any PokéCenter. It will be at Lv50, holding an N-Solarizer and only knows Shadow Sneak. Hmm, yup Marshadow is another Mythical that I only know a little bit about. Until I use that code, I have not encountered Marshadow in any other game, official or otherwise, so here's hoping it will be a great battle partner :) Return to B2F and let's have a chat with Aklove. 

Just as he's starting, Jax shows up. He was forced into following Aklove's orders so he could save Arthur. Aklove goes on to tell us that he plans to start again, no more trusting Fey or anyone else. This would've been a perfect time for one final one on one match against Aklove but Jax wants to face him too because of Arthur so you know what that means, pick your best 3 Pokémon and let's take down Aklove for the last time, hopefully!

Wow, no extra healing items? I thought he would be packing 4 Full Restores or have a funky field condition that favours his Fairy-powered team or something. From a story point of view I get why we would team up with Jax against Aklove...but yeah, I think the game went overboard with the Double Battles for major fights. Aklove has nothing else going on for him now, no dramatic vow in the name of revenge or any attempt to make one more great escape. Jax wants to know why he was so determined to destroy Borrius, Aklove tells us about his ancestor AZ, still roaming the world 3000 years after that big war, and that Aklove wanted to put a proper conclusion to the war so that AZ can finally rest. Jax finds Aklove's reasons to be lousy, because after all this time maybe AZ might have had a change of heart and doesn't want anymore destruction and suffering. Marlon shows up with the police to arrest Aklove, he was watching over Zeph Jr. before he was taken. Marlon and Zeph Jr. leave, Jax is reunited with Arthur and he tells us we can find Jax hanging around the Battle Frontier if we're ever in the mood to team up again. We'll see xD. Mom is okay and we return home, just in time for the (still unskippable) credits to roll again. 

....Several credit rolls later....

When we load up the save file again we're back on B1F of the Ruins. Our Mission Log has been updated to show the locations of all available Missions. Also New Game+ has been unlocked, here are the special bonuses that you get when you start a new game with New Game+ enabled: 

1) A team of 6 Pokémon maximum can be carried over from the party in the previous save to the new game. 
- They will be devolved to their base species and will forget any moves barring Egg Moves.
- Held Items will be retained barring Mega Stones and Z-Crystals.
- EVs and IVs will be retained. 
2) If any of the following items have been obtained in the previous save, they will be carried over to the new game: Stat Scanner, Dowsing Machine, Baby Monitor, ADM, Shiny Charm, Oval Charm, Catching Charm, Magma Stone, and Frontier Card, in addition to any BP earned. 
3) Difficulty may be increased or decreased at any point without penalty. 
4) Certain main story puzzles solved in the previous save will remain solved in the new game. 
5) If the Frontier Card is carried over, then the Battle Frontier may be accessed immediately upon arrival in Seaport City. 
6) Additional NPCs for modifying IVs, EVs, and natures will be available in Crater Town until the game is cleared. Note that some may charge BP for their services, so make sure you earn enough before starting the new game. 
7) Certain Legendary Pokémon previously locked to the post-game will now be obtainable before the game is cleared. 

What do you think about that? The main Mission is finally completed and we're free to explore this wonderful region! Climb back up to B2F, there's a hidden Red Card in the top left area (that just reminded me of Final Fantasy Advanced Tactics) and a Primarium Z on the right. Return to that cave area underwater that we made a note of before, now we can take on that Toxapex...in a Dynamax Battle!

OxOxOxOxOxOxOxOxOxO
>>DYNA BOSS FIGHT<<
OxOxOxOxOxOxOxOxOxO

Toxapex - The Brutal Star Pokémon
Level: 80
Type: Poison/Water
Ability: Merciless
Moves Known: Toxic, Max Ooze/Venoshock, Max Geyser/Scald, Recover
Item Held: Poison Barb

After Toxapex is dispatched, the tablet outside is gone. In the new area check the rock on the right for a Red Shard and then pick the real prize up top - a Rare Egg that contains the Mythical Manaphy: 

[mana] MANAPHY - The Seafaring Pokémon 

Type: Water
Ability: Hydration
Moves Known: Tail Glow, Bubble, Water Sport

Breed it with Ditto to get the other Mythical Phione: 

[phio] PHIONE - The Sea Drifter Pokémon

Type: Water
Ability: Hydration
Moves Known: Bubble, Water Sport

Hmm, nope, I never saw these two during my official games adventures way back and until now I hadn't found them in any previous ROMhacks that I've played/replayed so far. Thanks to user CoulofSinder from Reddit who told me about where to find that Toxapex. Exit the Ruins and Fly back home, seems like a good place to start this POST-post-game side of things.

Stop over at our Rival's house, we'll find Melony and learn that Zeph bailed himself out of prison and picked up Junior. His road to making up for the things he has done begins now. On the table is a gift from Axelrod - the Pokémon that he chose as a Starter, nice one Axe. We haven't done one in quite a while, mainly because we didn't have the means for it until we got into post-game territory, but we have what we need now and all the time in the world so get yourselves ready for......

>THE GREAT BACKTRACK: DIVE EDITION<
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

/MIRSKLE'S GYM\
- The last time we were here we saw Mirskle and his crew jump into the pond before those Ferrothorn guys showed up. Now we can find out what's in that pond, dive right in and proceed to the next room to resurface there. Look what we have here, some kind of "medical" facility? xD. There are a few people here if you can see them - a Camper on the bottom right, a Youngster on the left and a Scientist on the upper right. Porygon is here too. The Camper sells the following:

Heal Powder P450
EnergyPowder P500
Energy Root P800
Revival Herb P2800

The Youngster will give you Heart Scales if you got any Mushrooms for him. Tiny Mushrooms, Big Mushrooms, Balm Mushrooms. Isn't he too young for mushrooms though..? As for the Scientist, bring him Oddish and he'll give you Dream Mist. 

ROUTE 14
- We'll start with the Dive spot that is located to the south from the Ruins of Void. Once underwater head north then east to find a Resurface spot and a rock with a hidden Blue Shard on the east end. Pass that spot for now and carry on south until you reach a left side turn (there's a hidden Yellow Shard by the pink coral in the corner of the rock wall), go all the way left to pick up a Sea Shell. Come back and go all the way southwest and search the corner for a hidden Green Shard. Return to the Resurface spot we passed, it'll lead us to a secluded area where we find TM23 Iron Tail. Make your way back to the first Dive/Resurface spot and go southwest once you've resurfaced, you'll see another Dive spot in the northwest. Down there, check the bottom rock for a Red Shard and go through the entrance. In the next area reach the northwest corner and search for a Blue Shard. Continue to the south exit. Next area, resurface to get a Wave Incense, then back underwater to search that bottom right coral for a Yellow Shard before going all the way south for Sea Salt. Done. Back to the south side of the Ruins. 
- The next Dive spot we're going for is on the western side of Route 14. Under there, search the rock for a Green Shard. Carry on east, pass the entrance and go on southeast to search another rock for a Red Shard. Through the entrance, in the next area go south to pick up a Sea Shell then go through the next entrance and we are in a small cavern occupied by one of those portals Prof. Log told us about. Check the left rock for a Blue Shard and then examine the portal so we can try to catch whatever jumps out!

16 NIHILEGO - The Parasite Pokémon

Level: 70
Type: Rock/Poison
Ability: Beast Boost
Moves Known: Stealth Rock, Mirror Coat, Wonder Room, Head Smash

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Nihilego's Sp. Defense gets a boost at the start. 

Hmm, okay this one I do recognise from Gen 7. Even in GBA form it still looks creepy. I had only just started playing Ultra Sun late last year, after avoiding it for a while because I was really disappointed by the Ultra games not being sequels to Sun/Moon. But a friend convinced me into trying the Ultra games with some info about the post-game content so I jumped in. Had to pause that adventure though, there were some walkthroughs that had to be done :) 1 Portal Pokémon down, 24 remain out there. 

ROUTE 16
- We're going under that massive Dive spot we saw on the south side, remember that? Once down there go north, you'll find a Blue Shard by the pink coral just above the Dive spot. Further up is an entrance to go through and another one in the next area which leads to a Sea Shell in the third area. Return to the main area and head southeast then south to go through another entrance and carry on through the next ones until we wind up in the main area's southwest section, there's Sea Salt and a Resurface spot which leads to TM117 Fling. 

ROUTE 17
- The Dive spot is on the south side of the route. That bridge which was being rebuilt before is there now and so is another portal above the Rock Climb spot on the western side of the route.

12 TAPU LELE - The Land Spirit Pokémon

Level: 70
Type: Psychic/Fairy
Ability: Psychic Surge
Moves Known: Nature's Mad, Moonblast, Tickle, Skill Swap

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Tapu Lele's Sp. Attack rises at the start. 

No problem recognising the Alolan Guardians, although I didn't spend much time training and travelling with them. Just added them to the collection. Get to the Dive spot and down there we'll find 2 entrances. Go right. In the next area (Area 2) we'll see an entrance and 2 rocks (the top one has a Yellow Shard). Go through that entrance to reach Area 3. Just northwest from the entrance is a pile of white fragments (?), you'll get a Blue Shard from that. Carry on to the left side for a Sea Shell. There are 3 other entrances here but return to Area 2 and continue east to Area 4. Here you'll find a Green Shard from the rock at the center and Sea Salt in the upper right section. That upper left entrance is a passage going back to Area 3 (in that passage you'll find a Green Shard from a rock) so carry on eastward to Area 5. The first entrance here leads to Area 6 while that one on the right is a passage that is also going to Area 6, you'll find a Yellow Shard from a pink coral in that passage. After arriving in Area 6 from Area 5 turn right to find Sea Salt in the corner. Then go north, the rock near the closed entrance has a Red Shard. East from there is a pile of white fragments with a Blue Shard. Head for the northwest entrance, it takes us back to Area 3. Once back there continue northwest to the first of 2 passages leading back to Area 1. In Passage A check the fragment pile near the entrance for a Red Shard, then the rock in Passage B for a Yellow Shard. So ends this Backtrack trip, which looks to be the last one for now. 

There are some special battles we can take part in now that we're the Champ. Remember the "Devil Duo" in Frost Mountain? They are the Expert couple found in the southeast corner of 2F, to get there climb the ladder found in the southwest section of 1F. They brushed us off when we first met them but look at us now, strongest Trainer in the region and all :) BUT the one major down side about this battle is that you can only face them if you have a team of Fighting-types and Dragon-types. Why so specific...?

So that's why they were so specific xD, these cheeky old timers! The next special battles are against the Unbound crew. Remember, they are on 1F of the building just next door to the Double Battle House in Dehara City. On 2F is a Battle Girl who gives us Mission 72 The Strongest There Is: 

72 THE STRONGEST THERE IS

Location: Dehara City
- Defeat all of the Unbound devs in Dehara City in a single day! 

Be aware that each of these guys is packing a full team of Lv100 Pokémon and they can be battled once a day. Remember, you have to defeat them in a single day to complete their Mission. I was going to cover each match but what I've noticed is that the crew doesn't have consistant teams, particularly the Double Battle duo of Lixdel and Thanasis. Even the Trainer documents don't have information about these battles, I'm guessing the lack of consistant teams is one reason why. Anyway, if you ever need a place to train everyday, here you are :) when you've defeated the whole crew head upstairs to claim the Mission reward from the Battle Girl - a Master Ball. 

Fly back to Dresco Town and visit Arthur. I didn't expect to see him back home but he's there and thanks us for helping Jax by giving us a Salamencite. Earlier on we found out that all available Missions are now indicated in the Mission Log, those Missions are the post-game ones. Let's give them a try. 

Fly back to Dehara City, enter the southeast apartment building (where we received the Go-Goggles) and go up to 2F. If you've been up here during our main game journey you'll remember that this is the home of the little girl that was taking a timeout in a corner for misbehaving. She's not there now, according to her father she went to her usual play spot and hasn't returned - Rift Cave. This is Mission 04 A Rift in Space: 

04 A RIFT IN SPACE

Location: Dehara City
- A little girl has gone missing in Rift Cave! Find her, and bring her home to her worried parents. 

Get yourselves ready and return to Rift Cave 1F.

[gira] GIRATINA - The Renegade Pokémon

(Origin Forme)
Level: 70
Type: Ghost/Dragon
Ability: Pressure
Moves Known: Dragon Claw, Pain Split, Aura Sphere, Earth Power

It's been just over a decade since I last played Gen 4, so the last time I saw Giratina was in a ROMhack. I don't mind it as a Legendary, but like with many of the Legendary and Mythical Pokémon which have come afterwards I'm not as invested in or fascinated by them as the earlier set, which were around when I was young enough to appreciate them :/ Back to Rift Cave and speak to the girl. She was here playing but whenever she wants to leave she can't. Before we can take her home, Palkia suddenly appears and vanishes with the girl! A ladder leading below is here now, let's go.

Ah, we have a maze to navigate through. Darn. From the ladder go along with the path all the way until you circle round to jump off a west-facing ledge on the upper side. You'll turn south then north, seeing a ladder on the left side, before reaching Zygarde cells #49 in between 2 ledges on the right side. After getting the cells and coming back round, continue north until you're heading south to stand between ledges. Jump left, continue south to jump left again. Head up the first northward corridor to find an Odd Keystone that's between ledges up top (in case you didn't find one underwater). If you jumped right to get it you have to come back to that spot and jump left. Go south to jump off the first of 4 south-facing ledges. Continue down to jump off the second one, you'll see a ledge leading left - if you go that way you'll get to TM93 Dragon Tail. Decide whether you want it now or you'll get it later. Either way after that 3rd south ledge you'll go west, passing the ladder leading back to 1F, then jump off the final south ledge and carry on all the way to the other ladder. Before climbing check the rock below the ladder for a hidden Rowap Berry.

Level: 70
Type: Water/Dragon
Ability: Pressure
Moves Known: Max Rockfall/Power Gem, Max Geyser/Aqua Tail, Max Knuckle/Aura Sphere, Max Wyrmwind/Dragon Claw 

We've saved the girl and acquired the second of the Creation Trio. Make your way round again to the exit ladder and once we're back outside the girl heads home. She'll be in the corner again xD but hopefully no more playing inside Rift Cave. Her father is glad she came back safely and gives us the Lustrous Orb. Mission completed. We have Giratina but what about the Griseous Orb? For that we must go back to the Distortion World.

Once you're there (let's call this the Initial Area) go south to the platform which will teleport us to a new place (Area A). There's a boulder puzzle waiting for us back here, surprise surprise :), involving 3 boulders and the pressure plate is on the right side of the middle platform. Boulder 1/B1 will be the left one and Boulder 2/B2 will be the top one. Push B2 down once, to the right once then up twice. Push B1 to the right twice, B2 up once, B1 right once, B2 down once, B1 left once, B2 up once, B1 right once, B2 down twice, B1 right once, B2 up twice, B1 right twice, B2 down three times then right once. Done. Go to the platform that's on the southeast to move on to Area B. Jump onto the next platform and find a new face named Nex. He has been expecting someone else and wonders if that person is still around. He then asks for a battle, be ready because he has a Lv100 team. Who is this guy, someone new we'll have to worry about in the next update perhaps?

Because the person that Nex was supposed to give the Orb to isn't around, we get it instead and he returns to his world. Huh, interesting but brief. Thanks to user Shut_Up_And_OwU from Reddit who shared information about how to get the Griseous Orb with me, I saw that the Official Guide mentioned the Orb but not how or where to get it. 

Take the Odd Keystone return to Gurun Town's PokéCenter and speak to the Medium, remember her? Say Yes to her and free those trapped spirits from your Cube:

SPIRITOMB - The Forbidden Pokémon
Level: 35
Type: Ghost/Dark
Ability: Pressure
Moves Known: Nasty Plot, Hex, Memento, Ominous Wind
Item Held: Smoke Ball

We return to Crystal Peak's B1F area, the section which has that Hiker who was trying to figure out the totems. He has succeeded and shows us how they work: Sliding the totem crystals up (a.k.a deactivating them) makes their respective grounded crystals disappear while sliding the totem crystals down (a.k.a activating them) brings the grounded crystals back. Slide all 3 totem crystals down to clear away the mass of crystals blocking the north way and proceed, then turn left to pick up a Rare Candy below. Go to the northeast side to meet a Kindler who wants to find the 10 hot emeralds he buried. This is Mission 14 Blazing Emeralds: 

14 BLAZING EMERALDS

Location: Crystal Peak
- Search far and wide for hot emeralds hidden beneath crystals.

Go back to the northwest side to locate the first emerald. Return to the totems, slide the blue totem and red totem crystals down and head for the 1F (Area 2) ladder in the southeast side. Let me say this now, there is going to be a lot of moving back and forth between areas to interact with the totem crystals so if you get tired of this then we're in the same boat :) In Area 2, Emerald #3 is right below the blue crystal wall. Head to the south section to slide up the blue totem crystal that's there. Carry on to the southern end to find a Shiny Stone then back up a bit to scale the red crystal wall on the right and go east to a ladder which leads to that small B1F room which was previously empty. This is where we find Emerald #2 and if it is night time for you now there is a portal:

10 YVELTAL - The Destruction Pokémon

Level: 75
Type: Dark/Flying
Ability: Dark Aura
Moves Known: 

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Yveltal's Sp. Attack rises at the start. 

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Yveltal's Sp. Attack rises at the start. 

I only played Pokémon X so encountering Yveltal happened in one of the older ROMhacks that I've played. Back to the south side and scale the left side red crystal wall, Emerald #4 is next to a big red crystal just up ahead. Come back to ground level and slide down the blue totem crystal. Return to B1F to slide up the red totem crystal and slide down the yellow totem crystal. Now we can scale up to the northwest corner of Area 2 and search the top of the big yellow crystal for a hidden Fighting Gem. Back to B1F to slide up the yellow totem crystal, then back to Area 2 and slide up the southern blue totem crystal. Now all crystals are down and that opens the room on the south side, in there we find an Aerodactite. After that continue east into the water, surf down to pick up a Blue Flute. Surf up over the waterfall, you'll notice a tablet on the left as you head up. Circle around to it and translate the text: 

FOUR HOLES.
PATIENCE IN
THE CENTRE
IS THE KEY.

I'll admit, this one stumped me for a couple of moments haha but it requires us to re-enter the Aerodactite room and stand in the top right corner (see the screenshot for the exact spot) and wait for a few seconds to unlock the Raid Den. You'll find a Poisonium Z there too. All the tablets have been found now so don't forget to return to that Ruin Maniac in Icicle Cave to complete the Am I Blind Mission after we're done with Crystal Peak. Scale back down the waterfall and go through the entrance on the right, it leads to the Cube Corp. Entrance Area of 1F and find Emerald #7. Back to Area 2, up the waterfall for Emerald #5. Return to the southern blue totem crystal, slide it down then back to B1F to slide down the yellow totem crystal. Return to Area 2, after scaling up to the western side go through the western entrance to 1F (Area 3). 

As you go west you'll see a way north, follow it to a Hiker who gives us a Grass Gem that he dug up in this area with his ADM. Interesting. 

Back to the main path, get to the northwest corner to pick up TM50 Overheat and to the center of the room for Emerald #6 and to meet Krystal the strongest Trainer in Crystal Peak, for now. Back to B1F, slide up the red totem crystal, slide up the yellow totem crystal then in Area 2 slide down the blue totem crystal. Return to the Cube Corp. Entrance Area, scale down the blue crystal wall and go on to meet a pair of Cube Corp. representatives...from the Science Society. Them again xD.

Carry on past them to scale a red crystal wall and circle round to the center spot for Zygarde cells #93 and TM71 Stone Edge on the far left. There's a hidden Alorichium Z under those blue crystals in the eastern corner, make a note of that for when you come back here with the blue totem crystal slid up. Make your way back to B1F, slide up the red totem crystal and return to the Cube Corp. Entrance Area to collect Emerald #8 from the south side. In the southwest corner is a Choice Scarf (if there isn't a yellow crystal wall then come back later after working the totem crystal). That south exit is a nice shortcut to Cube Corp.'s outside area, you can go through to have a quick look and make it a fast travel point. No rush, we'll check it out properly later. Back to B1F to slide down both the yellow totem and red totem crystals then return to the southwest section of Area 2 and head out for the outside area.

We'll find a familiar woman out here whose daughter was carried off by a Drfiloon, can we help to find her? This is Mission 47 One Purple Balloon: 

47 ONE PURPLE BALLOON

Location: Crystal Peak
- A little girl has been snatched up by a Drifloon! Find her, and return her safely to her worried mother. 

The Drifloon and the girl are on the southwest cliff, when we speak to Drifloon it carries the girl off to the northeast near the entrance to 2F. After meeting them there they will fly off to the upper northeast section then down to the intersection of crystal walls and finally back to the southeast side. The Drifloon has returned the girl back to her mother, and when we speak to the mother she turns out to be that Ditto from Fallshore. Yup, these two again xD but this time Ditto Mom attacks us, but it's not a problem. After the battle Drifloon carries the Ditto family off, but some Quick Powder is left behind. To be continued? Go to 2F. 

We'll find a Youngster circling a yellow totem, that's Rick. 

Youngster Rick
- Lv70 Loudred [Normal]
- Lv72 Slaking [Normal]
Prize: P1152

Ignore the totem, carry on to 3F. We'll see Subaru first. 

Black Belt Subaru

- Lv73 Toxicroak [Poison/Fighting]
- Lv70 Monferno [Fire/Fighting]
Prize: P2240

Continue to the south side and slide up the red totem crystal. Back to 2F to get Emerald #10 from the northwest corner. Slide up the yellow totem crystal then go north to get the last Emerald and a Yellow Flute above that. Come back to slide down the yellow totem crystal, then slide up the red totem crystal on 3F. Head back to slide up the yellow totem crystal and now we can get the Metal Coat in the upper west side. Finally done. Don't forget to slide down that yellow totem crystal before we make our way back to the Kindler in B1F. For delivering the emeralds we'll get the Jade Orb. Mission completed. Now we aim for the Crystal Peak summit. 

On 3F's eastern side is where we'll find Reshiram's and Zekrom's portals, depending on the time of day. Daytime is for Reshiram, night time is for Zekrom.

I still remember the brief animated scene shown in Emerald when Rayquaza descends to confront Groudon and Kyogre, that was cool. And it was awesome to battle along side it against Deoxys in Omega Ruby. Good times :) Make your way back to B1F, slide up the red totem crystal and do the same for the blue totem crystal in Area 2 then go on to Area 3 for Krystal.

The bad news is it seems the challengers get randomised, because I've faced Zeph and Jax twice now and then Milo appeared. The Title Defenses are shown in the Boss Trainers document so be sure to have a look at that, I would've included all of them here in the walkthrough if they were in a set order. Thumbs up for adding title defenses to the game :) 
For the next couple of Missions we go back to Fallshore City's Mission HQ. Speak to the Bug Catcher in the 1F room, he asks us to train a Butterfree up to Lv70 and bring it to him for the next task. This is Mission 16 Bye-Bye Butterfree: 

16 BYE-BYE, BUTTERFREE

Location: Mission HQ, Fallshore City
- The sweet sorrow of goodbyes! Form a deep bond with a Butterfree by training it to at least Level 70. 

XD, this Mission just wants us to be like Ash and release that Butterfree after all that training. But we get another one from the Bug Catcher, this one is capable of Gigantamaxing and still knows the same moves as the released one. Mission completed. That super rich Lady by the fridge gives us Mission 20 Exp. Millionaire: 

20 EXP. MILLIONAIRE

Location: Mission HQ, Fallshore City
- Exp. is like gold. Earn 1000000 in one day to become truly rich. 

No problem, she'll reward us with 2 Lucky Eggs after burning some of her money xD rich people solutions to rich people problems right there. Mission completed. As an extra bonus she'll upgrade the Lucky Egg multiplier in exchange for Big Pearls. In the corridor we'll meet our undercover comrade the Waitress, she has Mission 64 The Communist Revolution: 

64 THE COMMUNIST REVOLUTION

Location: Mission HQ, Fallshore City
- Rise up in the name of communism! Heal at Pokémon Centers 300 times. 

Excluding the one in Antisis City, of course. You'll get PP Maxes for this big task. Past the Waitress is a Scientist who is trying to figure out what's right as far as Pokémon are concerned - religion or science. She gives us Mission 17 Darwin Was Right: 

17 DARWIN WAS RIGHT

Location: Mission HQ, Fallshore City
- The theory of evolution is a theorem! Evolve 151 Pokémon total. 

If we succeed, we get (a copy of) Mew...courtesy of those fine folks at the Science Society :) It's at Lv1 but has perfect IVs and a Mewnium Z. I've definitely caught Mew in some other ROMhacks but I'm not sure if I also did that in my original Fire Red adventure, that was ages and ages ago from this point. Head upstairs and speak to another Scientist, she's looking for a research assistant for her work on the Sinnoh Lakes. This is Mission 27 Guardians of the Lake: 

27 GUARDIANS OF THE LAKE

Location: Mission HQ, Fallshore City
- Help a scientist uncover the mysteries of the Cave of Being!

Remember that you need Rock Climb to reach the entrance. 

[rtcob] CAVE OF BEING


We'll find the Scientist just up ahead, she senses something unusual about the center of the puddle in front of her. Stand in that spot and watch as Uxie, Mesprit and Azelf approach us before flying out of the cave! The Scientist offers some clues to where they could've gone to: 

- Uxie (symbolising knowledge): we should check the Dream Research Lab.
- Mesprit (symbolising emotion): find a place where our emotions were stirred.
- Azelf (symbolising willpower): find a place which represents "seeing something through". 

Back in Tarmigan Town, just as we are about to enter the Lab we feel a mysterious presence...and when we choose to search the area, Uxie appears. Catch it if you can!

Our emotions were stirred in Zeph's room when we learned more about Aros and everything else.

Fly back to Crater Town and speak to the Ruin Maniac roaming near the PokéCenter. He sees our ADM and wants some help in demolishing those collapsed doorways in the KBT Expressway. This is Mission 38: 

38 MAJOR MINER

Location: Crater Town
- Use the ADM to dig through the collapsed doorways in the KBT Expressway, and capture 3 Carbink. 

Brace yourselves because this is quite a boring Mission (makes the fishing for 30 Magikarp Mission come off like a park picnic xD), you'll spend a lot of time wandering the Expressway scanning those collapsed doorways hoping to find one that the ADM picks up. You can also use 3 Light Clays to charge up the ADM and dig through those doorways. Unfortunately this is the only way to get Carbink in the game if you really want one. After mining through the rubble in a doorway you'll then move into a room occupied by a Carbink that you'll fight in a Dynamax battle.

Once you've obtained the 3 Carbink return to the Ruin Maniac, no need to have them in your party, and he will reward us with a Diancite...which confirms that Diancie is also obtained from the KBT Expressway. Fantastic :S Mission completed. As far as the Raid Den is concerned, it's just Carbink that you'll find. I was racing around the Expressway a few days after doing that Mission (trying to hatch Eggs for that Magma Stone xD, the struggle is real, yo!) and luck favoured me, hopefully it will for you too. One of those collapsed doorways led to the big prize:

Carbink [Rock/Fairy] Carbink [Rock/Fairy]

I was racing around the Expressway a few days after doing that Mission (trying to hatch Eggs for that Magma Stone xD, the struggle..) and luck favoured me, hopefully it will for you too. One of those collapsed doorways led to the big prize: 

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=
>>MYTHICAL BATTLE<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=

[dian] DIANCIE - The Jewel Pokémon

Level: 80
Type: Rock/Fairy
Ability: Clear Body
Moves Known: Skill Swap, Power Gem, Stealth Rock, Moonblast

Out of all the Pokémon games (official, ROMhacks, fan-made etc) that I've played, this is the very first one where I've encountered Diancie. It's been one of those Pokémon whose name I see once in a while online and I thought it's Carbink's evolved form. Didn't know that it hadn't appeared in the official games, has that changed since Gen 6? 

Afterwards we go back to Fallshore City, 2F of Mission HQ. Speak to the paranoid Scientist in the corridor for Mission 49 Population Control:

49 POPULATION CONTROL

Location: Mission HQ, Fallshore City
- Capture 50 Pokémon in one day to reduce overpopulation. 

Succeed and all Poké Balls have a +10% catch rate. Back to back lousy Missions, damn. And these are post-game content xD, here I thought we would be jumping from one cool Mission to another. Enter the room and talk to the Black Belt, he's got some news that will cheer us up: the Swords of Justice have appeared! This is Mission 59 Swords of Justice: 

59 SWORDS OF JUSTICE

Location: Mission HQ, Fallshore City
- The Swords of Justice are hiding in Victory Road! Capture and bring them back to Fallshore City. 

The ladder that we couldn't reach on Victory Road 1F is accessible now via Rock Climb but leave it for after we're done with this Mission because there's a puzzle down below so no rush. Get to the Grass Maze area, move north to the section of grass above the Kindler and Bug Maniac cousins - there we'll see Virizion. If we try to interact with it, Virizion flees to the northeast side (just above the Pokémon Ranger), then to the northwest side, then to the south side and finally disappears from the area (?). Okay. Carry on to 3F's cave, just above the entrance is Terrakion. From there it will run to the northeast corner, along the way up we'll find Virizion in the north section. Leave it there because if you talk to Virizion it will return to the Maze and you have to start chasing after it again until it comes back here. Terrakion will move from northeast to southwest then northwest and finally in the north section. Continue on to the Snowy area, Cobalion is on the slope above Kyurem's cave. From there it will go to the southwest side, then the northeast grassy cliff, then the spot with rocks in the central section and finally joins the other two in 3F's cave. Catch 'em if you can!

Once they are in the party return to the Black Belt and show him. He has some suspicions about them, so he says we should follow him to Route 17. We'll find him below the southwest rock face of the middle vertical island. We let the Pokémon out and they reveal an opening in the rock face, the Black Belt believes that they are connected to whatever is inside. He then gives us 10 Fast Balls so we're ready to fight. Mission completed. Go inside and meet Keldeo for a Dynamax-powered duel!

Item Held: Star Piece

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- All of Keldeo's stats go up at the start. 

Keldeo I remember more for its role in the ROMhack Pokémon Resolute, which was an okay game if the story wasn't a little messy at times. Otherwise I barely remember the Swords of Justice from the official games. Return to Victory Road and let's attempt this new (but very ancient) puzzle. 

[rtvr2] VICTORY ROAD (Post-Game)

There are 5 platforms, each with a boulder and pressure plate. Start from the northwest platform, after pushing the boulder there we're teleported to the centre platform. Go to the northeast one, push the boulder onto the plate then do the same for the southeast and southwest plates then the centre one and so opens the Victory Road Hidden Grotto. Inside we find a Kommonium Z.

Back to Mission HQ, 2F, to speak with the anti-communist Mart employee and get Mission 63: 

63 THE CAPITALIST REVOLUTION

Location: Mission HQ, Fallshore City
- Rise up in the name of capitalism! Make 300 purchases from shops.

200 Premier Balls after all that shopping, so let the war between the communists and the capitalists begin! 

Fly to Tarmigan Town and enter the house next to the Mart, that's the home of the boy who hasn't woken up from his nightmare. This time we find the boy's father Eldon, he wonders if someone at the Dream Research Lab could help. This is Mission 66 The Endless Nightmare: 

66 THE ENDLESS NIGHTMARE


Location: Tarmigan Town
- A small boy is having a nightmare! Maybe a scientist at the Dream Research Lab can wake him up. 

At the Lab you'll get 3 Dream Balls from the Scientist by the bookshelves on the east side. The Scientist near the roaming Munna is whom we're here for, she is certain this case goes with her research and so she goes to the house. Back there she explains to Eldon that his son is locked in an endless nightmare by a Pokémon. In order to save him we need the Lunar Wing from a place called Fullmoon Island. Eldon has a boat in Fallshore City that can get us there.

[rtfi] FULLMOON ISLAND


Under the green shrub below is a hidden Kee Berry. Go on to the north side for an entrance among the trees, it leads to a clearing where we find Cresselia. The power of the Lunar Wing causes it to Dynamax out just in time for our battle. 

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x= 

[cress] CRESSELIA - The Lunar Pokémon

Level: 60
Type: Psychic
Ability: Levitate
Moves Known: Max Guard/Safeguard, Max Mindstorm/Psychic, Max Starfall/Moonblast, Max Guard/Moonlight 

When we return to Fallshore City, you may see another Sailor by the next boat. He'll have some extra items to give us - 5 Repeat Balls. Back in Tarmigan Town stand in front of the boy and let the Lunar Wing do its work. The good news is that his nightmare ends...but the bad news is that we end up in a nightmare of our own! A completely black world where we find Mom, all she says is "Welcome home, dear" until she says this is our new home and vanishes. Go east to see Jax and Prof. Log, speak to Jax first then Log for both of them to disappear. Go west to find an unconscious Axelrod, a memory from when we first met him at the Shadow Base. After he's gone, go east to talk to Marlon and then we'll find the sleeping boy, who tells us that we're doomed. Yup, that's nice to know in a place like this :) Go north to find Eldon and be blamed for the state of his son before he disappears. Then we meet the cause of all this - Darkrai! With help from this nightmare it expands in size and attacks!

DARKRAI - The Pitch-Black Pokémon
Level: 75
Type: Dark 
Ability: Bad Dreams
Moves Known: Dark Void, Max Darkness, Max Knuckle, Focus Blast

Darkrai disappears and we wake up a moment later. It turns out Eldon's son woke up after the Lunar Wing reacted but then we suddenly went under a trance. To thank us, Eldon gives us an old Member Card for the Tarmigan Inn. Wow, the last entry is from 30 years ago! Eldon will be found in Fallshore City if we ever need to sail again. Mission completed. Head for the Inn, as soon as we enter we're met by a man who claims they've had reservation there for us all along. We get into bed by some odd force and then zzzzz....

[rtnw] NEWMOON ISLAND


Go all the way west, check for a hidden Marang Berry near the entrance and then proceed to face Darkrai once again. Catch it if you can!

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=

[dark] DARKRAI - The Pitch-Black Pokémon

Level: 80
Type: Dark 
Ability: Bad Dreams
Moves Known: Double Team, Dark Void, Haze, Dark Pulse

A voice from somewhere speaks to Darkrai, explaining why it chose to come here. After that we wake up back in the Inn and perhaps the nightmares are truly over. I missed out on both Cresselia and Darkrai during my official games run, because I didn't even know about Fullmoon Island and Newmoon Island at the time. So the last time I saw them was in Pokémon Adventure Red Chapter. 

The Worker on 2F of Mission HQ is the Trash-Man, and he is searching for classy trash...that he can eat (don't ask him why). Can we search 100 trash cans for Mission 74?

74 THE TRASH-MAN

Location: Mission HQ, Fallshore City
- Become part of the trash! Search 100 trash cans for lucrative trash. 

If you want a Shiny Lv50 Garbodor with perfect IVs and is capable of Gigantamaxing then start searching. Mission completed. 

The next Mission is in Gurun Town, at the house just south from the statue. The Psychic there recognises us as the person who found the Tomb of Borrius' burial chamber....so you can probably guess what his Mission involves xD, this is Mission 79: 

79 TREASURE HUNTER

Location: Gurun Town
- Return to the Tomb of Borrius, and find all of the Hidden Items!

That's the minor bad news, the major good news is if you got all the Hidden Items that I pointed out during our tomb raiding run then you should have 1 item remaining according to the Mission Log. The final Hidden Item is a Relic Silver which is in the southwest corner of the pixelating puzzle room. The reward for this is a Larvesta Egg that the Psychic found while doing his own tomb exploration, nice. Mission completed. Because it's such a rare Pokémon even in the ROMhack universe, I don't know much about Larvesta. The last game I saw it in was Pokémon Gaia, so I'll give it a chance in this game and see what it's all about. 

Just outside the Seaport PokéCenter is the policeman that we teamed up with to track down the Terror Granbull goons on Route 10. This time he needs our help in calming down some Sharpedo in the underwater area of Route 17. The cops have no idea what has caused the Sharpedo to be like this. Here is Mission 54: 

54 SHARK BAIT

Location: Seaport City
- The Sharpedo on the ocean floor of Route 17 have become agitated! Calm down 20 of them. 

Once you're back down there go east into Area 2, we'll find the first Sharpedo of two that are swimming around there. It will attack if it sees us, a Lv75 beast that gets a random stat boost at the start of battle. And we're supposed to calm 19 others like it?? After dealing with the second Sharpedo go through that top left entrance to Area 3, the next two Sharpedo spotted right away while a third Sharpedo is circling that middle trench. Back to Area 2 and continue east to Area 4 for Sharpedo #6 and #7. East into Area 5 where we find Sharpedo #8 and then #9 in the eastern passage which leads to Area 6. We'll see #10 as soon as we arrive in Area 6. Head west to find #11 to #16. On the south side are #17 and #18 who team up against us. Continue back to Area 3 via the northwest entrance then northwest again in Area 3 to the Passage A for Sharpedo #19 and Passage B for the last one. As soon as that Sharpedo is defeated we're spotted by the real predator, watch out! Perfect time for that Spielberg shark movie theme to start up!

>>DYNA BOSS FIGHT<<

Mega Sharpedo - The Brutal Pokémon
Level: (varies)
Type: Water/Dark
Ability: Strong Jaw
Moves Known: Max Darkness/Jaw Lock, Max Geyser/Liquidation, Max Quake/Earthquake, Max Hailstorm/Ice Fang
Item Held: Sharpedonite

Whoa, how was that? If we encounter a Trainer with a Sharpedo on their team in the next battle it will be too soon! Return to the policeman and receive that Sharpedonite. Mission completed. 

Next up we go back to Magnolia Town and then east to the Fields where a storm is in progress. Make your way back to that rocky section of land where we met Rancher Molly (she told us about the missing guardian), this time Molly isn't there but the old lady on the north side of the land is still around. She shows us the pair of monsters responsible for the crops being destroyed - Thundurus and Tornadus! A Legendary Double Battle coming up, brace for it!

THUNDURUS - The Bolt Strike Pokémon

Ability: Prankster
Moves Known: (vary)

TORNADUS - The Cyclone Pokémon
[Incarnate Forme]
Level: (varies)
Type: Flying
Ability: Prankster
Moves Known: (vary)

They flee after checking us out and are now roaming around Borrius. Nice, and the weather clears up too with the two of them gone. Go back to Magnolia Town and speak to the lady Rancher in the farmhouse, she tells us that the Miltank have been stolen! Not just by anyone but by those Terror Granbull goons! Here we go again with these clowns, this is Mission 28: 

28 HERD BUT NOT SEEN 

Location: Magnolia Town
- Rescue Miltank kidnapped by the Terror Granbull in Magnolia Fields!

We'll find the Goons in the northwest side of the Fields, near the Tamer who gave us the Safari Zone Mission. This time the Goons are with their boss Gruff, he isn't too happy about their previous operation in Cootes Bog but now that they've got some Miltank there's a chance to make serious cash thanks to their milk. The problem is Gruff's approach scares the Miltank and they scatter (one heads north while the other two go east). Soon enough the Goons notice us, it's good to see that Gruff remembers us. It's been a while after all :)

Terror Granbull Goon
- Granbull [Fairy]
- Granbull [Fairy]
Prize: P2960

Goon B steps in to show the other guy how it's done. 

Terror Granbull Goon
- Granbull [Fairy]
- Granbull [Fairy]
Prize: P3040

But he fails too and Gruff wonders why he's stuck with these geniuses xD then we're joined by another familiar face - James! Long time no see, where has he been? We learn that the Terror Granbull were another gang that got run out of Antisis City by the Black Ferrothorn. James also reveals that he and his fellow crewmembers are now known as the Black Horizon, with a new Boss and everything...and Gruff is welcome to join them (!) That's explosive. James believes that if they team up they can beat the Black Ferrothorn. Gruff likes the sound of that and soon enough the Terror Granbull set off to become a part of this new organisation. Unfortunately for us we can't join too because the Boss isn't too fond of youngsters like us, due to bad experiences with children in the past. Who is this new Boss anyway? Now what's left is to round up the Miltank, which involves approaching them from one side so that they run in the opposite direction until we get them back to Magnolia Town. Starting with the one that went north, take it with you back to the south side of the Fields. There you'll find one of the other two Miltank while the third one is in the northeast area. Once you've got all three of them in the south area, cut the top skinny tree of the two skinny trees that are here and simply navigate two of the Miltank back to town through there. The remaining Miltank has to be navigated through the path where that running Rancher is. The 3 Miltank will make their way back to the Farm once they enter Magnolia, go to the farmhouse to receive 100 Moomoo Milks as reward. Mission completed. Thanks again to Reddit user CoulofSinder for sharing information about how to trigger this Mission. Thundurus and Tornadus are out and about roaming the region, catch them!

And so the land has been blessed by the Guardian of the Fields. The old woman shows her gratitude by giving us the Reveal Glass. Another set of Legendary Pokémon that I found out about in the ROMhack universe. I like their designs, resembling genies. 

Raikou and Entei have been on a tour of Borrius since the last time we faced them at the Ruins of Void, it's time we finally captured them:

The Legendary Beasts, Ho-oh and Lugia...still takes me back to the Gen 2 days even after all these years :) the very first official game I played was Silver version, although I didn't get far at the time because it was a borrowed game. It was nice to see some of the Johto Pokémon after having been introduced to them in the anime. 

Remember that we've already dealt with no.06 and no.07 (Reshiram and Zekrom), for no.08 we go back to the Command Center of the Vivill Town Warehouse. We get to meet the friend of a man who has been around for a VERY long time...

All the Gen 7 Guardians have now been acquired. For No.15 we'll first need to get another Pokémon, remember that Bag which Aklove left on the Route 12 beach? Make room in your party and go there to pick up Nebby!

[nebb] COSMOG - The Nebula Pokémon

Level: 15
Type: Psychic
Ability: Unaware
Moves Known: Splash, Teleport

Ahh, so that's where the nickname came from. Not bad, Lillie. I'd wondered why she nicknamed it Nebby. We have to evolve Cosmog into Cosmoem (by levelling up to Lv43) then Solgaleo (by levelling up to Lv53 during the day) and bring it back with us to the Route 12 beach at night.

I didn't play Moon so this is my very first time encountering Lunala. Interesting moves and Ability but I would be worried if a tough Dark-type came along for a one on one fight. 

No.16 (Nihilego) we've got it. No.17's portal appears above the Route 4 waterfall during the day.

Level: 70
Type: Bug/Fighting
Ability: Beast Boost
Moves Known: Counter, Hammer Arm, Superpower, Focus Punch

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Buzzwole gets an Attack boost at the start. 

Given how overused the word "swol" is in pop culture these days, I just had to laugh at the Dex description for Buzzwole. The name is familiar, I think it might have been among the Pokémon which were left out of the final update for Pokémon Adventure Red Chapter. So Unbound is the very first ROMhack which gives me a chance to see these other Ultra Beasts and try them out...but damn, how did we go from the simple familiar designs of Gen 1 to 3 to official Pokémon that might be mistaken for Fakemon xD??

Return to the Great Desert's centre canyon (where we found the trapped Clown and battled Mega Trainer Travon) during the day to find No.18's portal.

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Pheromosa gets a Speed boost at the start.

It makes me think of Perfect Cell from Dragon Ball Z and the Chimera Ant King from Hunter x Hunter...actually I think Pheromosa would fit among the Chimera Ants. 

No.19's portal appears in northwest section of Thundercap Mt. 2F at night.

We'll find No.20's portal in the middle of Crater Town at night.

A giant living vegetable or cheese grater, that's what Celesteela makes me think of. 

Enter Vivill Woods during the day and go to the northwest pond to find No.21's portal.

21 KARTANA - The Drawn Sword Pokémon

Level: 70
Type: Grass/Steel
Ability: Beast Boost
Moves Known: Leaf Blade, Sacred Sword, Swords Dance, Guillotine

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Kartana gets an Attack boost at the start. 

Even though there's Ferroseed and Ferrothorn that are under the Grass/Steel-type, when I saw Kartana's type I immediately thought of Chanolour from Pokémon Clover. 

For No.22 we have to return to the Antisis Sewers Area 2 at night, that southwest section which needed us to know Waterfall in order to enter it.

22 GUZZLORD - The Junkivor Pokémon

Level: 70
Type: Dark/Dragon
Ability: Beast Boost
Moves Known: Dragon Rush, Belch, Thrash, Giga Impact

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Guzzlord gets an Attack boost at the start. 

I remember seeing Guzzlord in Pokémon Adventure Red Chapter and thinking it was one of the Fakemon made for the game haha with what we've seen of these Ultra Beasts so far could you have blamed me?

No.23's portal appears on Frost Mountain 3F at night when you've got Solgaleo and Lunala in the party.

23 NECROZMA - The Prism Pokémon

Level: 75
Type: Psychic
Ability: Prism Armor
Moves Known: Rock Blast, Iron Defense, Power Gem, PhotonGeyser

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Necrozma gets an Attack boost at the start.

I hadn't seen what it looks like until now and didn't know much about it except that it is in the Ultra games. The name gives it a big villain vibe though. 

No.24 pops up just south of the Fishing Dude's house on Route 7 during the day.

24 STAKATAKA - The Rampart Pokémon

Level: 70
Type: Rock/Steel
Ability: Beast Boost
Moves Known: Iron Head, Take Down, Stealth Rock, Double-Edge 

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Stakataka gets a Defense boost at the start. 

It just looks like a stone stool that has gone on the attack xD reminds me of that creepy toy with a doll's head from Toy Story.

And finally No.25, we'll find its portal in the northwest side of Magnolia Fields at night.

25 BLACEPHALON - The Fireworks Pokémon

Level: 70
Type: Fire/Ghost
Ability: Beast Boost
Moves Known: Will-o-Wisp, Trick, Fire Blast, Mind Blown

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Blacephalon gets a Sp. Attack boost at the start. 

Gotta give a slow clap for whoever came up with that Mind Blown move :D clever name that fits with the description, well played. As for Blacephalon...it reminds me of Prospero from One Piece because of the colourful outfit. 

All the Portal Pokémon have been taken care of, go back home and speak to Prof. Log. Those Pokémon should've been enough of a reward but we get one more - another Master Ball. Maybe you were expecting something else :) well how about the two items on the table too - a pair of Mega Stones for the Starters that we didn't select. A little better xD, Mission completed. Now we move on to search for the remaining Mythical and Legendary Pokémon. 

[arti] ARTICUNO

Fly back home and head north to the spot next to the KBT Expressway entrance. We'll be asked if we want to call to Articuno, say Yes and then the magical password of the day (Sankren fimbulvetr) and here it comes!

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x
>>LEGENDARY BATTLE<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x

ARTICUNO - The Freeze Pokémon
Level: 50
Type: Ice/Flying
Ability: Pressure
Moves Known: Freeze-Dry, Roost, Ice Beam, Hail

[zapd] ZAPDOS

Make it to the summit of Thundercap Mt., say Yes then the magical password of the day (Sankren thoron) and mind the lightning.

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x
>>LEGENDARY BATTLE<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x

ZAPDOS - The Electric Pokémon
Level: 50
Type: Electric/Flying
Ability: Pressure
Moves Known: Drill Peck, Roost, Discharge, Rain Dance

[zera] ZERAORA

While we're here on Thundercap Mt. go back to that area of 4F where we rescued Milo (the boy in the Pikasuit) and met the man who needed a digging machine so he could reach a yellow Pokémon he once saw on a ledge. We've got that machine now, let him borrow it for a moment and watch as he breaks through the wall. He goes out to take a photo of the Pokémon and leaves us to catch it. 

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=
>>MYTHICAL BATTLE<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=

ZERAORA - The Thunderclap Pokémon
Level: 80
Type: Electric
Ability: Volt Absorb
Moves Known: Hone Claws, Dischage, Wild Charge, Agility

I would seen an image of Zeraora on the Pokémon Database site a few times but had no idea what it was. Sweet design.

[molt] MOLTRES

To the summit of Cinder Volcano we go for the final Legendary Bird. Say Yes, one more magical password (Sankren bolganone) and don't fall off the edge.

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x
>>LEGENDARY BATTLE<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x

MOLTRES - The Flame Pokémon
Level: 50
Type: Fire/Flying
Ability: Pressure
Moves Known: Air Slash, Roost, Heat Wave, Sunny Day

[heat] HEATRAN

Still in Cinder Volcano, descend to 1F and enter the north area. We'll see this curious creature on the island in the middle of the lava pool.

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x
>>LEGENDARY BATTLE<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x

HEATRAN - The Lava Dome Pokémon
Level: 70
Type: Fire/Steel
Ability: Flash Fire
Moves Known: Metal Sound, Earth Power, Heat Wave, Stone Edge

I last encountered Heatran in Pokémon Kanlara Ultimate, where it was about to be used by Team Magma Boss Maxie to take over the world. Design wise it's not bad. Next up, we're going after the Legendary Titans so prepare yourselves for some Braille-flavoured puzzle action...because 5 generations after Gen 3 the ROMhack universe still can't get enough of Braille-powered puzzles :)

[regir] REGIROCK

Fly to Gurun Town and head into the Great Desert, aiming for the southeastern section and the now unsealed tomb of Regirock. 

DESERT RUINS

Head up to the north wall and let's read that Braille message: 

BEGIN FROM
THE CENTRE.
CREATE WHAT
YOU SEEK.

You have to form the H symbol for Regirock using the boulders, You start by pushing that middle boulder of the 5 south boulders to the centre of the room and then get the maining boulders into position. There's a sudden quake and the chamber to Regirock is opened. 

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x
>>LEGENDARY BATTLE<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x

REGIROCK - The Rock Peak Pokémon
Level: 50
Type: Rock
Ability: Clear Body
Moves Known: Curse, Iron Defense, Hammer Arm, Stone Edge

A big thank you to my friend Marko who checked out Youtube for the solution, I'm offline at the moment and was getting stumped by this puzzle because I didn't know how close or far the boulders were supposed to be from the centre. I figured out that you're meant to form the symbol after catching Regice and Registeel. 

[regic] REGICE

Return to the Frozen Forest's southeast area where we battled that Burglar who had taken Alolan Ninetales. There's a frozen stream on upper right, slide along it to reach the Frozen Tomb.

FROZEN TOMB

The Braille message up top says this: 

CRACK THE
ICE. LEAVE
PURE WHAT
YOU SEEK.

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x
>>LEGENDARY BATTLE<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x

REGICE - The Iceberg Pokémon
Level: 50
Type: Ice
Ability: Clear Body
Moves Known: Curse, Amnesia, Hammer Arm, Blizzard

[regis] REGISTEEL

The Island Cave we're going to is on the island just southwest from the Route 18 waterfall. 

ISLAND CAVE

On the north wall we find this message: 

NATURE MOLDS
TO OUR WILL.
TURN THE
CRYSTALS TO
WHAT YOU SEEK.

The idea is to turn the crystals until they are all red. The colour change pattern is Blue -> Yellow -> Purple -> Red. The middle crystal changes colours for all the crystals. after turning the outer crystals to the same colour (e.g. image 01), touch any one of those outer crystals until you get the middle crystal and the 3 opposite outer crystals to the same colour (e.g. image 02). Sticking with image 02, touch that upper right crystal until those 4 crystals turn purple then go for the middle crystal and make them all red. 

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x
>>LEGENDARY BATTLE<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x

REGISTEEL - The Iron Pokémon
Level: 50
Type: Steel
Ability: Clear Body
Moves Known: Iron Defense, Amnesia, Hammer Arm, Heavy Slam 

I really liked the Regi's Battle theme during my old Ruby version adventure. It added to how mysterious and dangerous they looked. 

[regig] REGIGIGAS

Leave only the Titans in your party (position them in the order of Regirock, Regice and Registeel), return to Icy Hole and awaken the original Titan. Be ready because Regigigas is at Lv100!


=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x
>>LEGENDARY BATTLE<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x

REGIGIGAS - The Colossal Pokémon
Level: 100
Type: Normal
Ability: Slow Start
Moves Known: Heavy Slam, Hammer Arm, Giga Impact, Crush Grip

For me the most surprising thing about Regigigas is that it's a Normal-type. I thought maybe it would be a Ground-type. A new Mission has been added to this update which is related to Regigigas: fly back to Tehl Town and speak to the Worker standing in the middle of town. He wants us to bring him Regigigas so he can make one more statue, this is Mission 56 Statue of Regi:

56 STATUE OF REGI

Location: Tehl Town
- A man needs inspiration for his final statue! Bring him the Pokémon that sleeps under Bellin Town.

Add Regigigas to your party and talk to the Worker. He'll have that statue done in no time and as a reward he'll offer a service of upgrading Amulet Coins. The first upgrade is free, making any Amulet Coins that you have Lv3. For another upgrade the Worker charges 4 Big Nuggets. 

[celeb] CELEBI

In Redwood Village add the Spiked Ear Pichu to your party and speak to the old man on the north side. Celebi will appear next to him after sensing its old friend in the party, catch it if you can.

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=
>>MYTHICAL BATTLE<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=

CELEBI - The Time Travel Pokémon
Level: 65
Type: Psychic/Grass
Ability: Natural Cure
Moves Known: Life Dew, Leech Seed, Recover, Future Sight
Item Held: Lum Berry

Can't think of Celebi without remembering how much I wanted to watch Pokémon 4Ever back in the day. The local video club didn't have it so it would be some years before I finally got to see the movie on TV. Only in the ROMhack universe have I encountered Celebi. 

[jira] JIRACHI

Speak to the old man who lives in the western house in Crater Town. He tells us a brief story about how Jirachi and another Pokémon appeared here when the town was destroyed. The townspeople thought they could use Jirachi's wish power to restore the town but they ended up locking it away in the southeastern house. The old man goes out to unlock the house for us now that we're the Champion and warns us that Jirachi will battle us first once we wake it up. Prepare yourselves.

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=
>>DYNA MYTHICAL FIGHT<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=

JIRACHI - The Wish Pokémon
Level: 70
Type: Steel/Psychic
Ability: Serene Grace
Moves Known: Max Steelspike/Meteor Mash, Cosmic Power, Max Strike/Double-Edge, Max Mindstorm/Future Sight
Item Held: Star Piece

Unfortunately I don't live in Japan, Europe or America so even though I had a Gen 3 game at the time I missed out on getting Jirachi officially. Several years later I did get it, unofficially :) thanks to games like Adventure Red Chapter, Light Platinum, Glazed and Mega Power. Are there any good ROMhacks or fan-made games out there that you know of which have their story based around Jirachi? 

Return to the old man to confirm that we got Jirachi and we learn that it must be with us in order for the other Pokémon to appear. Once Jirachi is in the party go out to Route 5 and head east (going along the path which leads to the Hidden Grotto) all the way until we're in a portion of Route 13. A crater has been created by the arrival of that other Pokémon, in the upper left corner above the crater are Zygarde cells #55. There's a hidden Comet Shard in the crater, get it and then greet this visitor from out of space.

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=
>>MYTHICAL BATTLE<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=

[deox] DEOXYS - The DNA Pokémon

[Normal Forme]
Level: 85
Type: Psychic
Ability: Pressure
Moves Known: Cosmic Power, Recover, Psycho Boost, Hyper Beam

That old man will note that we've caught Deoxys and suggests we bring it to the meteorites that are in the middle of town. They are what allows Deoxys to change Formes. Just like Jirachi I missed out on Deoxys officially, this time it was because I didn't know about the Aurora Ticket and Birth Island until many years later. Unofficially I did eventually encounter it and officially that happened in Omega Ruby. The Regi's Battle theme was cool...then I heard the Deoxys Battle theme. Regi's Battle theme had to take a back seat xD.

[shay] SHAYMIN

We've proven ourselves in battle many times during our adventure so the Ace Trainer who guards the northern area of Flower Paradise lets us pass. 

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=
>>MYTHICAL BATTLE<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=

SHAYMIN - The Gratitude Pokémon
[Land Forme]
Level: 30
Type: Grass
Ability: Natural Cure
Moves Known: Growth, Magical Leaf, Leech Seed, Synthesis

No official encounters with this one, the first time I saw it was in Pokémon Flora Sky (the Complement Dex version) where it was the main Mythical Pokémon. Have Shaymin in your party and speak to the Beauty in the main area of Flower Paradise, she'll see Shaymin and gift us with Gracidea. Changing between Formes for Shaymin is still not possible, perhaps in the next major update.

[kyur] KYUREM


We found an empty cave on the north side of the Victory Road Snowy Path. It is empty no longer.

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x
>>LEGENDARY BATTLE<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x

KYUREM - The Boundary Pokémon
Level: 80
Type: Dragon/Ice
Ability: Pressure
Moves Known: Blizzard, Imprison, Outrage, Glaciate

I enjoyed playing White version, it was really a breath of fresh air in terms of looks, a darker story and features like reusable TMs. But I didn't finish the sequel so no official Kyurem meeting. Will dive back into it someday. The DNA Splicers are currently unavailable for Unbound. 

[volca] VOLCANION

We'll find it on an island on the south side of Cinder Volcano 2F. Be ready for a Dynamax Battle. 

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=
>>DYNA MYTHICAL FIGHT<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=

VOLCANION - The Steam Pokémon
Level: 80
Type: Fire/Water
Ability: Water Absorb
Moves Known: Max Flare/Flare Blitz, Steam Pump, Hydro Pump, Haze

A couple of major Trainers in Pokémon Mega Power had Volcanion in their teams but I didn't know it was such a special Pokémon at the time. Players could only obtain it via the Adventurers' Club passwords there. 

[melo] MELOETTA

Get your dancing shoes on and head over to Polder Town at night, because the good news is we'll find Meloetta in the middle of town...but the bad news is in order to battle it we have to accept Meloetta's dance challenge. It involves pressing all the right keys in time as they move across the screen. This certainly brings back memories of the dancing mini games from GTA San Andreas haha. If you're having trouble clearing this just slow down your emulator, the challenge only lasts one round. Afterwards Meloetta acknowledges your skills and accepts your battle challenge.

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=
>>MYTHICAL BATTLE<<
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=

MELOETTA - The Melody Pokémon

[Aria Forme]
Level: 80
Type: Normal/Psychic
Ability: Serene Grace
Moves Known: Psychic, Hyper Voice, Role Play, Close Combat 

Not much to say about this one because I'm not even sure now if I encountered it during my White version playthrough. Unbound is the second game in which I've obtained it unofficially, the first game was Resolute. Relic Song is taught by the Special Moves Tutor at the Battle Frontier. 

[arceus] ARCEUS

We should have enough Sea Shells and Sea Salt at this point so if you want a Shell Bell return to Davy's Shipyard and speak to the male Scientist. Turns out you can get more each day from the seafloor. The female Scientist is now able to convert Shards into copies of the Creation Plates. If you found some while Diving, great, otherwise bring those Shards we've been finding around the region to this woman. Here is a list of how many Shards you'll need for each Plate: 

DRACO PLATE 
 - 6 Red Shards + 2 Yellow Shards
DREAD PLATE
 - 2 Red Shards + 4 Blue Shards + 2 Green Shards
EARTH PLATE 
 - 4 Red Shards + 2 Blue Shards + 2 Yellow Shards
FIST PLATE 
 - 6 Red Shards + 2 Yellow Shards
FLAME PLATE 
 - 8 Red Shards
ICICLE PLATE 
 -4 Blue Shards + 4 Green Shards
INSECT PLATE 
 - 6 Green Shards + 2 Yellow Shards
IRON PLATE 
 - 2 Red Shards + 2 Blue Shards + 2 Green Shards + 2 Yellows
MEADOW PLATE 
 - 8 Green Shards
MIND PLATE 
 - 4 Red Shards + 3 Blue Shards + 1 Green Shard
PIXIE PLATE 
 - 6 Red Shards + 2 Blue Shards
SKY PLATE 
 - 6 Blue Shards + 2 Green Shards
SPLASH PLATE 
 - 8 Blue Shards
SPOOKY PLATE 
 - 2 Red Shards + 3 Blue Shards + 1 Green Shards + 2 Yellow Shards
STONE PLATE 
 - 4 Red Shards + 4 Yellow Shards
TOXIC PLATE 
 - 4 Red Shards + 4 Blue Shards
ZAP PLATE 
 - 8 Yellow Shards

Once you've got all 17 Plates return to the Dream Lab. The Scientist by the bookshelves gives us 3 Dream Balls. Talk to the Scientist sitting near Hypno, he has finally created a way for someone to experience past memories. Thanks to the Plates his machine can take us to our worst nightmare. It is a world of nothingness, occupied by the Scientist in the form of a little boy and Darkrai. What the...? Speak to Darkrai, it'll just look at us then vanish and be replaced by a staircase. Climb it to the top and, well, meet your Pokémon's maker.

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=

=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=

ARCEUS - The Alpha Pokémon
Level: 80
Type: Normal
Ability: Multitype
Moves Known: Refresh, Future Sight, Recover, Hyper Beam

My earliest memories of Arceus are from one of the previous hacks I played a while back, Pokémon Resolute. Had no idea about it during my Gen 4 adventure but after learning about it years later I like that it has a connection to the Ruins of Alph, which had been a fun little mystery for me for a while. 

Fly back to Seaport City and let's check out this Battleground place.

BATTLEGROUND {Battle with the best in Borrius!}
------------

As soon as we enter we are met by the Gym Guide, it's been a while. Speak to him for information about the battle formats offered here. You'll find certain Gym Leaders here too who are ready for individual rematches, depending on what day it is today. Please see the Mission List document for the Battleground schedule. There's also a Picnicker, sitting next to a Victini (!) and she gives us Mission 25 Gimme a V:

25 GIMME A V


Location: Battleground
- Be victorious by defeating all eight of Borrius' Gym Leaders in the Classic Leaders Gauntlet!

Get your team ready, talk to the Gym Guide, select Classic and good luck.

[grky] GROUDON & KYOGRE


If today is Monday, Wednesday or Friday and if you return to the Battleground you'll find Véga. Despite how things went when we last saw him, we can't forget that he is still a certified Gym Leader xD so all that Cinder Volcano business has to go under the bridge. He's ready for a rematch if you are and after defeating him for the first time you'll get a Darkinium Z then a Dark Gem daily. The next day head back to the Crater Town Gym and speak to him, the game will give us a message saying that due to time constraints this meeting is happening here instead of elsewhere. In the previous version you would have to meet him on a Thursday at the Magnolia Café and according to the Changelog this meeting is going to be changed at some point after the post-game story is completed. Véga gives us the Red Orb and the Blue Orb, apparently Aklove wanted to test Hoopa's power against both Groudon and Kyogre but he only trained Hoopa against Kyogre. With Aklove gone now it's up to us to find the two Legendary Pokémon. 

For Groudon fly back to Cinder Volcano Shadow Base B2F and stand by the volcano. The Red Orb starts glowing and look who's awake again!

GROUDON - The Continent Pokémon

And for Kyogre fly back to Vivill Town, enter the Warehouse and Dive under the flooded lab. Once underwater, go to the bottom right corner to find TM110 Drain Kiss. Then go through the northern doorway, move to the upper right side of the next area and the Blue Orb starts glowing.

On Fridays return to the Magnolia Café, you'll find a Rich Boy seated outside between 8am and 1:59pm. Everything seems to be going well for him, he's got his trusty handkerchief and can't imagine life without it. But on Saturday the boy is gone and on the table is his Grubby Hanky, pick it up to trigger Mission 37 Lost Hanky:

37 LOST HANKY

Location: Magnolia Town
- A patron of the Magnolia Café has lost his handkerchief! Return it to him on Friday morning.

Wait until Friday morning or (somehow) timeskip your way to the day and give him the handkerchief. He'll reward you with a Lycanium Z.

[s.s.m] S.S. MARINE


A whistle will blow 5 times to indicate that the ship has reached its destination. Like with any good ship, this one has Trainers occupying the passenger cabins that we can battle. One of those passengers just so happens to be quite the celebrity - Red! Items can't be used in those battles but if you defeat all of the Trainers before the ship completes its voyage you will receive a prize. The number of Trainers onboard changes from day to day. Be aware that talking to the Trainers after the battles and also talking to the non-Trainer passangers will cut into the voyage time, there's even one passenger who deliberately wastes more time with extended dialogue.

As soon as we board, the first cabin we'll see ahead of us belongs to the man in charge Captain Oppenheimer. Each time we board the ship he'll give us a Memory for Silvally. In that same cabin, behind the potted plant on the right are Zygarde cells #80, the last ones to be found in this update of the game. Outside the cabin you'll see two Sailors, one on the left and one on the right. The right side Sailor will tell you how many Trainers occupy the cabins with a specific door colour. The left side Sailor gives a hint about the number of Trainers in specific locations (port side a.k.a the left side of the ship and starboard a.k.a the right side of the ship). 

Next up we return to Seaport City and head north to finally check out the Borrius Battle Frontier.

And finally the stall next door is for Grandma Wilma, she teaches Draco Meteor to your high Friendship Dragon-type Pokémon. 

We're told that there is a shady character who is usually seen skulking around near the Battle Tower. He appears between midnight and 3:59AM and offers one of the following services per day (he takes more BP than the actual amount if you have, see the numbers in brackets):

Reset EVs - 20 [25] BP

Max Chosen EV - 35 [45] BP
Change Gender - 10 [15] BP
Gigantamax - 200 [245] BP
Force Shiny (Always Available) - 500 [600] BP

Let's see them facilities next.

-bfbc- BATTLE CIRCUS - Fun for all ages!

The Clown we find here can change Abilities. 100 BP for regular Abilities and 200 for Hidden Abilities. The Battle Circus offers Single, Double and Multi-Battle challenges which go on until you defeat the Circus Ringmaster or choose to rest. Before each battle the Ringmaster will activate a random effect which cannot be removed or overridden during the battle. The higher your streak becomes, the more intense the effects may become...and they can stack up too (e.g. battles in which all Pokémon are confused or can't be switched out or the negative emotions gimmick from Véga's Gym or the "Sea of Fire" effect which damages non-Fire-types each turn etc). If you decide you want to pause the challenge and continue later, your progress will be recorded until you come back to carry on. You will be disqualified if you leave the challenges without saving. Also note that you can't interrupt the challenges in the Multi Battle format. Just behind the Battle Circus is the Battle Sands area.

-bfbs- BATTLE SANDS - Let others use your Pokémon!

Single and Double Battles take place here. 2 Pokémon are entered in the Single Battles and 3 for Double Battles. Not any Pokémon though, because when you make your first selection some will then become unavailable for choosing. The Pokémon will not be used by us but by someone else who will fight for us. Whatever BP that Trainer has won up to the point when you choose to retire will be yours. Each Pokémon in the battle will receive a random stat boost at the start. xD I like how the "volunteers" are characters we know that the organiser just spots and tells them that they've been chosen. The only negative I have about the Battle Sands is about the AI of the volunteer Trainers, it doesn't fully adapt to the opponent's Pokémon when it comes to moves used. So it's almost like flipping a coin and hoping they use a decent move each time. 

-bfbm- BATTLE MINE - Reach new depths!

Special challenges happen here, they go on until you defeat the Mine Excavator or choose to rest. Each level in the mine is occupied by a Trainer and the further down you go settings like battle type, level, party size etc will be affected. The other settings are determined by the Battle Format you choose. Some Trainers may drop items after being defeated that you can collect. Progress will be recorded if you want to halt the challenge until next time.

-bfbt- BATTLE TOWER - Never Lose! Keep Winning!

On the western side is a bookshelf containing guides on Mega Evolution, Z-Moves, Dynamax and Effectiveness while the shops are on the eastern side. Shop #1 is on top, offering stat boosters and evolutionary items:

The guide in the pink outfit leads to the Multi Battle Rooms, for Single and Double Battle info speak to the guide in green. The Nurse on the right says the feature there isn't available at the moment. The Battle Tower challenges go on until you defeat the Tower Tycoon or choose to rest. You can enter 3 or 6 Pokémon in the Single Battles format and 4 or 6 Pokémon in the Double Battle format. There are many Battle Rooms here, each occupied by a Trainer.

-AREA 1-

The Battle Girl, her Infernape and Snorlax are still here but this time the Battle Girl gives up on trying to move Snorlax and leaves with her Pokémon. Snorlax remains asleep, which gives us a good chance to catch it! 

>>POKé BOSS FIGHT<<

Snorlax - The Sleeping Pokémon
Level: 50
Type: Normal
Ability: Immunity
Moves Known: Heavy Slam, Amnesia, Horsepower, Hammer Arm
Item Held: Leftovers

Soon afterwards the girl's former boyfriend runs up to us, looking for her and once he learns where she has gone to he gives us a Snorlium Z. On the right is Trainer Tips signpost #41 and a portal (if it during the day) from which we find Xerneas.

09 XERNEAS - The Life Pokémon

Level: 75 
Type: Fairy
Ability: Fairy Aura
Moves Known: Moonblast, Heal Pulse, Megahorn, Close Combat

**BATTLE NOTES: 
- Xerneas' Attack goes up at the start. 

Design wise, I still prefer Xerneas over Yveltal and that was one of the reasons I chose Pokémon X over Pokémon Y. Name too :) just sounds cooler. Both east and west sides have openings, they lead to the same place.

-AREA 2-

On the northwest side we can see some Zygarde cells that can't be reached from this side, go through the west opening. 

-AREA 3-

That's Trainer Tips signpost #42 on the right. Only 2 Trainers in this area, Kayton and Juliette.

Youngster Kayton
- Lv70 Vigoroth [Normal]
- Lv72 Ursaring [Normal]
Prize: P1152

Aroma Lady Juliette
- Lv72 Torterra [Grass/Ground]
- Lv74 Chesnaught [Grass/Fighting]
Prize: P2368

Kayton gives us a little hint about how to navigate through this forest, if we go backwards we might go forwards. Hmm, noted. Go through the south opening, it takes us back to Area 2 (coming from the eastern opening). Step back through that eastern opening.

-AREA 4-

Go through the west opening.

-AREA 5-

Only Ruth is here, searching for them ghosts!

Medium Ruth
- Lv71 Lampent [Ghost/Fire]
- Lv74 Golurk [Ground/Ghost]
Prize: P3552

Those are Choice Specs on the log. Go through the north opening, it leads to a secluded spot (maybe Area 5.5?) where there's a woman who runs away after we try to speak to her. Who is that? Going back through the opening will take us back to Area 2, from there make your way back to Area 5 and go through the south opening.

-AREA 6-

That's Glenn by the entrance.

Bug Maniac Glenn
- Lv71 Ninjask [Bug/Flying]
- Lv71 Shedinja [Bug/Ghost]
- Lv74 Heracross [Bug/Fighting]
Prize: P2368

There's another Bug Maniac on the south side, he turns out to be another weird person who runs off. Is he with that woman from before? So random xD. Go through the eastern opening, it leads to those Zygarde cells #98 we saw in Area 2. Back through the opening, we end up back in Area 2. Return to Area 5, this time on the south side we find another Medium...that turns out to be a Zoroark! Ah, mystery solved. Catch it if you can. 

ZOROARK - The Illusion Fox Pokémon
Level: 65
Type: Dark
Ability: Illusion
Moves: Imprison, Night Daze, Nasty Plot, Foul Play

I like Zoroark's design, for a while I thought it was a Legendary or Mythical because it was so rare...then I played a couple of ROMhacks where it seemed like most of the major Trainers had one xD! Either Zoroark or Lucario, it was a bit much. Back in Area 6 go through the north opening to reach the final area.

-AREA 7-

That's Trainer Tips signpost #43 on the left and beyond that is a curious guy who has a Mission for us which involves Headbutting the trees 50 times as revenge for his foolishness, xD. *sigh + SMH* this is Mission 44 Numbskull: 

44 NUMBSKULL

Location: Redwood Forest
- Are you dense? Smash Pokémon heads against trees 50 times!

For this one we'll get a Pinsirite. Not a single Pinsir popped up while I did this xD, thanks a lot. Mission completed + a splitting headache...give me a moment. Afterwards surf across the pond below, pick up Zygarde cells #99 from the bottom left corner and head east to find Leslie.

Psychic[F] Leslie
- Lv72 Oranguru [Normal/Psychic]
- Lv74 Reuniclus [Psychic]
Prize: P3552

Past her is the exit, skip it for now and continue to the northeast corner, there's TM19 Giga Drain. South from there is another opening, going through it leads to a spot with 2 other openings. Go through the left one, you'll end up in the northeast spot in Area 6 where you may have noticed a Lady and a Kangaskhan. This the final Mega Trainer Ravonna, she's filming something here and if you're interested in helping her you'll need 4 Kangakhan in your party that are Lv70 or higher for a Double Battle. 

>>MEGA BATTLE<<

Mega Trainer Ravonna
- Lv74 Kangakhan [Normal] {Inner Focus} <Chople Berry>
- Lv75 Kangakhan [Normal] {Inner Focus} <Aguav Berry>
- Lv75 M. Kangakhan [Normal] {Early Bird/Parental Bond} <Kangaskhanite>

After Ravonna leaves we get a notification about the movie - 30% on Rotten Tamato Berries xD. After all that hard work, 30%?? Come on. Just back track using the same openings to return to Area 7 and finally exit the forest.

The Nurse right by the entrance is the only access to Pokémon Center services here and Porygon is here too. On the left side is a Scientist with a Mission to give, don't talk to him yet, carry on down to find Trainer Tips signpost #44 and a vendor stall where Mega Stones are made...well, just 3 kinds of them: Sceptilite (for 5 Grass Gems), Blazikenite (5 Fire Gems) and Swampertite (5 Water Gems). Interesting bit of information from the Picnicker roaming near the stall, she says something about a secret lab underground. There are 2 other stalls on the southwest side, the female Scientist wants you to show her Type: Null or Silvally. She'll then give you another Type: Null if you have space in your party and says she can turn 3 Arceus Plates into a Memory Disk. The Super Nerd across from her will give you Master Balls in exchange for 50 Gems. From the dock on the south side, surf to the southwest shore to get Zygarde cells #100 and a hidden Blunder Policy. Surfing to the northwest side leads to the Raid Den. Hurry back to Dresco Town to complete the Zygarde Mission now that all the cells have been collected, at long last. Speak to Zygardia to disassemble and reassemble Zygarde. She can switch forms between Beast and Serpent too. Then speak to Zygfried to teach it new moves or change its Ability.

Now for the southeast vendor stalls: The Ruin Maniac on the right will ask for Star Pieces or Fossils and will give you PP Ups. A minimum of 2 Star Pieces or Fossils in exchange for 1 PP Up. The male Scientist across from him wants 4 Everstones in exchange for 1 rare Evolution Stone. The next stall has a Black Belt who will raise one EV stat to the max in exchange for 50BP. Above him is a Mission giving Super Nerd, the final Trainer Tips signpost #45 and a Medium who can create Beast Balls if you give her Iron Balls. All the Trainer Tips have been seen and read now, head back to Dresco Town to speak with the Shocker to complete the Mission. He rewards us with the Notebook which belongs to one of Prof. Log's Aides, the one who gave us the Stat Scanner. Return the Notebook and the Aide will thank us by upgrading the Stat Scanner, allowing it to show hidden stats and moves plus you can teach it moves that would require you to visit a certain place or person.

The male Scientist on the northwest side asks us if we've seen the 32 Raid Dens all over the region. If we say Yes to his request, we would have to clear all the Dens in a single day. This is Mission 8 And Den There Were None:

Succeed in completing this Mission and you will receive the Porta-PC! Except for some places, you'll now have access to your Storage Boxes while on the go and can heal your party too :) the downside about the Porta-PC is that there's no access to the Items Storage, but since the Cube has unlimited space I guess there's no need for it xD. Return to the Super Nerd on the east side, he is fascinated by people's daily activities and tasks us with finding some Daily Event people. Daily battle Trainers are excluded. This is Mission 65 The Daily Grind:

The prize for completing this Mission is the Time Turner, a nifty device that can shift day time to night time and vice versa by 12 hours. It makes me think of a magic spell from one of those old school JRPGs like Breath of Fire. According to the Super Nerd, the Tim Turner's creator harvested energy from Dialga in order to power it. As he's going on, a female Scientist shows up to get him...because it turns out the guy ran away from a lab where he's being tested, xD. Unbelievable, but thanks for the Time Turner :) we should expect the Ministry of Magic to come knocking at our door any day now! In front of the Main Building is a group of Pokémon Rangers who are protesting against Cube Corp. The male Ranger nearest the entrance has been looking after the Alolan Sandshrew from Icicle Cave, show him one or an Alolan Sandslash and he'll give you an Ice Stone. He hasn't checked up on them in a while xD if only he knew. The male Ranger at the back of the group is the Ranger who forgot his Clefairy at the Day Care, we heard about it ages ago. He'll give us a Moon Stone and leaves after reminding us about using the Magma Stone to summon Heatran in Cinder Volcano. 

And so we have reached the end of this update of Pokémon Unbound and the end of this walkthrough. What an adventure that was, eh? We got to see a bit of Cube Corp. and the story has had plenty of changes, including having Aros alive instead of being dead like in the previous versions. Will he saved? When will we meet Fey and what is the Science Society up to as far as Borrius is concerned? Hopefully we'll find out in the next major update :) for now though let's put a nice bow on this document by jumping into the final section.

[zxz] FINAL SECTION AND OTHER RAMBLINGS

If you're someone who played Pokémon Unbound before and have come back for this update, what did you think of it? Or if this is the first version of Unbound for you new players out there, was it as good as you might have been told it was? It is still a fantastic game for me, with top quality features and a fine story. A high bar has been set and I still don't know if there any ROMhacks out there that can match Unbound as far as the features go but I do hope that any aspiring ROMhackers or even veteran ones will use Unbound as an example and learn from it. Be sure to send any of your feedback, questions, comments etc to Skeli and the Unbound team either in the Pokémon Community forums or the Discord server, Reddit, wherever they can be contacted. That would encourage them to continue doing a great job and to thank them for the work that they did so far.
