In this guide we explain how to get Manaphy in Pokémon Legends: Arceus as part of the Legend of the Ocean request.
If you are playing Pokemon Legends: Arceus, it is very likely that you are trying to complete the Pokédex and, incidentally, all the Requests (side missions). And although in general solving them is not too complicated, there are some that can choke you.
Such is the case of The legend of the ocean, petition number 66, commissioned by Professor Lavender shortly after the events taking place on the Cobalt Coast. The requirements to complete it are pretty far-fetched (and we’re not given any hints), but it makes sense given that the prize is… A Legendary Pokemon!
So if you have already accepted the quest, let’s see how to complete Legend of the Ocean in Pokémon Legends Arceus.
The first thing you should know, out of curiosity, is that the clues to solve the request are found in Pokémon Shiny Diamond and Shiny Pearl, specifically in the Canal City library. In the remakes, a new book called The Legend of the Ocean was introduced that gives us the keys to overcome this request.
What you must do first is get three Pokémon: Buizel, Mantyke and Overqwil.
You can find Buizel in the wild in Prado Herradura (Obsidian Meadow), Vereda del Viento (Obsidian Meadow), Erosionado Bridge (Obsidian Meadow), Cerro Aipom (Cobalt Coast) and Albuferas Chapuzón (Cobalt Coast).
You can find Mantyke wild at Ginkgo Beach (Cobalt Coast) and Silente Bay (Cobalt Coast).
For catch overqwil you have two options. The first is to evolve into Hisui’s Qwilfish; to achieve this, you must use the move Thousand Toxic Spikes with Strong Style 20 times. When you do, the option to evolve will be activated (no need to level up).
The second option for get Overqwil in Pokémon Legends: Arceus it is to wait to finish the game, because one of the missions near the end will take you to face the Pokémon and you will have the opportunity to capture it.
If you already have them, then comes the next part of the request: with all three Pokémon on your party, head to the Cobalt Coast and rest at any of the camps by selecting the ‘Until Afternoon’ option.
This done, and with the sky tinted by the orange color of sunset, you must cross the two gigantic pillars that are in Mano de Arena on the back of Basculegion. If you did it correctly, you should hear a scream…
Next, Head to the Coastal Cave and inside you will be welcomed by the Legendary Pokémon Manaphy (level 50), accompanied by four Phione.
¡Catch Manaphy and you will complete Legend of the Ocean! We leave you our analysis of Pokémon Legends: Arceus in case you are interested in knowing what we think about the new Game Freak game for Nintendo Switch.
