How to Get Spiritomb

How to Get Spiritomb at Hallowed Tower

Catch at Hallowed Tower

Pokemon BDSP Hallowed Tower

You can catch Spiritomb at the Hallowed Tower in Route 209 after placing the Odd Keystone at its base and talking to 32 NPCs in the Grand Underground. Take note that Sphere Traders found in the tunnels do not count to your tally.

Obtain the Odd Keystone

Steps to Get and Use Odd Keystone
1 Travel to Route 208 and talk to the Black Belt NPC near the Honey Tree.
The Honey Tree and the NPC can be seen near the gate to Hearthome City.
2 Talk to the Black Belt NPC and he will give you the Odd Keystone.
3 Make your way to Route 209 and go to the Hallowed Tower.
It's the crumbled structure near the easternmost river, found halfway through the route.
4 Interact with the Hallowed Tower and place the Odd Keystone to start the quest.

Talk to 32 NPCs in Grand Underground

Pokemon BDSP -  Grand Underground NPC
In the original games, you had to talk to 32 Players to increase your tally. As you can no longer interact with other players in the Grand Underground, you now need to talk to 32 NPCs to bring up your tally.

Talk to 32 Different NPCs

Unlike in the original games where you can talk to the same player 32 times, you now need to talk to 32 different NPCs to bring up your tally!

Sphere Traders Don't Count to the Tally

Pokemon BDSP - Sphere Trader Location

Sphere Traders are Hikers that will trade useful items to you for spheres. Although counted as NPCs, talking to them doesn't count to your tally.

Return to Hallowed Tower

Once you've met the number of people required, go back to the surface and interact with the Hallowed Tower to start the encounter with Spiritomb!

Encountering Another Spiritomb

You can summon another Spiritomb at the Hallowed Tower by redoing the quest at the Hallowed Tower!

Steps to encounter Spiritomb again
1 Obtain new Odd Keystones.
An Odd Keystone can be found at the pond south of Twinleaf Town, accessible with Surf. You can also get Odd Keystones from digging at walls at the Grand Underground.
2 Travel to Route 209 and place the Odd Keystone at the Hallowed Tower.
3 Interact with 32 NPCs underground.
4 Once completed, check the Hallowed Tower to start another encounter with Spiritomb.

Players often run into trouble taking down Cynthia's Spiritomb. As a Ghost/Dark type, Spiritomb is only weak to one type - the Fairy type. Before becoming Champion, There are only a few Pokemon that have reliable Fairy-type moves. Getting one will help greatly against hitting Spiritomb for super-effective damage.

Some recommendations include Azumarill who learns Play Rough at level 25. or Gardevoir who learns Dazzling Gleam upon evolving from Kirlia. You can catch Ralts in the Grand Underground.

Stall Out with Status

Spiritomb is known for its bulk as well, so another approach may be to whittle it down with status moves. Inflicting Burn or Poison while waiting out the turns can be a good way to slowly chip away at its bulk. Other options include Leech Seed or a Ghost-Type Curse.

Best Nature for Spiritomb

Adamant or Jolly Natures are Best

List of Recommended Natures
Adamant
Attack Special Attack
Brave
Def Speed

For players who intend to use Spiritomb to it's full potential, we recommend looking for one with an Adamant or Brave Nature. As a Physical Attacker, It would appreciate the increase to either it's Attack and not mind the drop in it's Special Attack nor it's already low Speed stat.

For Story Playthoughs, Attack and Speed Increasing Natures Should be Fine

When playing the main story, it isn't really necessary to have the best nature. Having any nature that boosts Attack should be fine. You will be able to change natures using Mints in the post-game so you can worry about that after clearing the main campaign.
