How to Clear Drifloon Puffed Up

Pass Through the Rimstone Formation

To complete this quest you first need to access the route that goes through the rimstone formation of the cave. You can do this by waking up the two Crobat in the tunnel where you can find a Goodra.

Wake up the first Crobat by tossing an Illumina Orb at it, and wake up the second Crobat by playing the Melody and getting Gengar to scare it.

When both Crobat are awake, you will receive a prompt to use your scanner and take the branching route when you enter the final section of the cave.

Toss an Illumina Orb at the Crystabloom

Take a Photo of the Puffed Up Drifloon
