Where to find Cresselia in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
Trainers find themselves a little confused when trying to figure out where to find Cresselia in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
Not all Mythical PokÃ©mon are responsible for natural disasters or unfortunate events. Cresselia, for example, is known to bring good dreams, banish nightmares, and even heal those who are ill or seriously injured. Also known as the “Lunar” PokÃ©mon, it is part of a duo with Darkrai and can be found in the Sinnoh region if trainers are ready to track it down.
Here’s where to find Cresselia in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
The Cresselia story arc begins in Canalave City after the coach’s acquisition of National Dex. As players are no doubt already aware, National Dex can only be acquired after players have seen the 150 species native to the Sinnoh region and defeated the entire Sinnoh League, Champion Cynthia included.
Once in town, coaches will need to find a house near the southwest docks and head inside. A tragic spectacle awaits him: a child is locked in a nightmare and cannot wake up, no matter how hard his family tries. Fortunately, a sailor outside the house has an idea. Legend tells the story of a PokÃ©mon whose feathers can banish the most disturbing event of nightmares.
The player is of course invited and the two soon land on Fullmoon Island. Cresselia waits for them there but quickly flies off when confronted. However, he leaves behind a moon feather, which is really all the child needs to wake up. Upon returning to town, the child is “cured” and coaches are alerted that Cresselia may be found wandering the area.
That’s right, just like Mesprit, Cresselia has to be tracked, intercepted, and weakened in several places in order to catch her.
How to catch Cresselia
Cresselia’s location can be tracked using the Marking Map app in the PokeTech watch. Keep in mind, however, that its location will change each time the coach does, so fielding a meet can be difficult for inexperienced players.
It is found in the tall grass along its current route.
Additionally, Cresselia will attempt to flee the battle as soon as she is spotted. PokÃ©mon that experience crippling or must-have moves like Sleep Powder or Scary Face would work well in these battles. Otherwise, the process can become more of a headache than usual.
Persistence and optimism are essential when hunting for Cresselia. Good luck trainers!
