Another delayed post, but this time I reached 151 Pokémon in Pokémon Moon. Now I have obtained 50% of all the Pokémon in Moon’s PokeDex and I only have 150 left to go. Out of the 40 Pokémon obtained this week the one that stood out to me was Type: Null. It is the cover Pokémon and I got it from a NPC in the game after beating the game. Type: Null is a genetically modified Pokémon and reminds me of Mewtwo. The 39 other Pokémon caught last week came from a mix of catching in the wild, evolutions, and new in-game features.
18 Pokémon were caught in the wild. Now I must split them in to two groups; which are Ultra Beasts and non-Ultra Beasts. After completing the main story in Pokémon Moon the player is contacted and is tasked to traking down five Ultra Beasts. Some of the Ultra Beasts are version specific, but the ones that I caught in Moon are Pheromosa, Xurkitree, Celesteela, Nihilego, and Guzzlord. There are two unique things about catching the Ultra Beasts that makes them different from other Legendary Pokémon. First if they faint in battle there is another chance to catch them. Also for some of the Ultra Beasts the player is required to catch multiples of them. Which I will try to trade the doubles to get the Ultra Beasts that are in Pokémon Sun. The non-Ultra Beasts are Tauros, Spinda, Phantump, Komala, Surskit, Makuhita, Machop, Morelull, Roggenrola, Sandile, Tapu Lele, and Necrozma. Tapu Lele is one of Island Guardian Pokémon for the island of Akala. While Necrozma is a Legendary Pokémon that caught using a Master Ball. Necrozma can only be found in the wild after catching all the Ultra Beasts. Some of the other non-Ultra Beasts would latter evolve.
There were 20 different evolutions that occurred last week. Surskit evolved into Masquerain at level 22. Makuhita evolved into Hariyama at level 24. Machop evolved into Machoke at level 28. Morelull evolved into Shiinotic at level 24. Roggenrola evolved into Boldore at level 25. Sandile evolved into Krokorok at level 29. Krokorok would then evolve into Krookodile at level 40. Driftloon evolved into Driftblim at level 28. Vibrava evolved into Flygon at level 45. Mudbray evolved into Mudsdale at level 30. Fletchinder evolved into Talonflame at level 35. Finneon evolved into Lumineon at level 31. Poliwag evolved into Poliwhirl at level 25. Zubat evolved into Golbat at level 22. Later on, Golbat evolved into Crobat when its friendship was high. I then went to Mount Lanakila where Crabrawler evolved into Crabominable. Then I went into a special magnetic field on Poni Island where Magenton evolved into Mangezone, Nosepass evolved into Probopass, and Charjabug evolved into Vikavolt. Now I am almost done just need to talk about the last Pokémon I obtained.
A new feature introduced in Pokémon Moon is Poké Pelago. It is a collection of islands where you can send the Pokémon in PC Boxes to go and do various activities. On the main island Abeens, there is a bean stock and you can attract wild Pokémon there and if they like you they will join your party. This is how I obtained Lapras. I hope to obtain more Pokémon in the same way in the future.
I am going to try and get back to regular scheduled post this week. Since I am at 50% completion I am closer to obtaining all the Pokémon in Moon. Furthermore, I keep getting closer towards to obtaining all 801 Pokémon. Until next time, the PokeQuest continues.
