Starting the Game

To the Crown Tundra!

Crown Tundra Story - Go to the Crown Tundra


Upon starting the game you will receive a Crown Pass that will allow you to travel to the Crown Tundra from Wedgehurst Station.
If you haven't received the Crown Pass, be sure that you have purchased the Expansion Pass DLC and downloaded the latest Software Update.
Speak to the rail staff in Wedgehurst Station to board a train to the Crown Tundra Station.
How to Get to The Crown Tundra
Upon arrival your Pokedex will be updated to include the Crown Tundra Pokedex.
Exit the station to meet Peony and Peonia. Approach them for a battle with Peony.
Peony specializes in Steel-type Pokemon, using a Copperajah and Aggron. Defeat him to move on.
With the battle over you are now free to explore the Crown Tundra and begin filling your Pokedex!

You might be caught off guard by the sudden battle the moment you leave the train station. Be sure to prepare your party in advance with Pokemon which can handle Steel-types, such as Fighting-types and Ground-types.

The Dynamax Adventure Begins

Crown Tundra Story - Dynamax Adventures


From the Station, head straight ahead and you’ll run into Peony entering the Max Lair, home to Dynamax Adventures.
Follow Peony inside and speak with the researcher to begin a Dynamax Adventure.
Tip: Your first Legendary Pokemon will always be a Suicune, so try to get a Grass or Electric-type Pokemon if possible.
Dynamax Adventure Guide
Clear the Dynamax Adventure to catch up with Peonia.
After exiting the lair, speak with Peony again and follow him south towards Freezington.

Your First Dynamax Adventure

Suicune ImageSuicune

At the end of the Max Lair, you'll encounter your first Legendary in the Crown Tundra, Suicune. Many players fail on their first try, and though you can return to encounter Suicune again, you'll have to start the Dynamax Adventure over to try for another encounter. When proceeding through the Den, try to catch a Pokemon which is effective against Water types to aid in the battle.

Try to Get 8 Dynite Ores

Dynite Ore ImageDynite Ore

You'll need to collect 8 Dynite Ores to proceed through the Story, as they will be required later on. If you're aiming to charge ahead as quickly as possible, a maximum of 11 Dynite Ores can be found in a single Dynamax Adventure, so try for a good run through your first Dynamax Adventure and score at least 8 points from the list below.

List of Bonuses
・Investigated the den (Max 4) - Defeat a Pokemon.
・Reached the innermost area (2) - Get to the last Battle.
・Caught a very special Pokemon (3) - Catch a Legendary Pokemon.
・Safe Adventure (2) - Clear the adventure without any Pokemon fainting.

If you don't make it on your first try, you can continue doing Dynamax Adventures to farm Dynite Ore. It's a good idea to go ahead and get the 8 Dynite Ores now to skip having to come back later.

Best Way to Get Dynite Ores

Choosing Your Path

Receive the Legendary Clues

King of Bountiful Harvests Clue.jpg


Upon your arrival, enter the house that Peony went into on the other side of the village. You will receive the Expedition Uniform and Legendary Clues 1-3 as well as a Master Ball.

Follow the Legendary Clue of your choice

At this point, you'll have the option to follow any of the three Legendary Clues. Depending on the Legendary Pokemon you want to capture first, you can advance any of these storylines, and can even balance the three to your liking.

Peony will encourage you to start off with the first Legendary Clue, The King of Bountiful Harvest, which allows the player to catch Calyrex and one of the Legendary Horse Pokemon. The clues on the Town Map will point you this Clue as well, so this storyline is easiest to complete first.

Chapter 4: The Ultra Beasts Walkthrough

They Came From the Ultra Beyond

Ultra Beasts.jpeg

This optional chapter grants the player access to Ultra Beasts, which can be randomly encountered in Dynamax Adventures. This chapter is still being researched, so we are adding more information as it is determined!

Catch Necrozma to Complete the Chapter


Catch Necrozma in a Dynamax Adventure. Its condition for appearing is completely random, so continue Dynamax Adventures until you encounter it.
After catching Necrozma, you'll get a call from Peony.
You'll receive an Ability Patch and Beast Ball for completing the chapter.
Optional: After catching any 5 Ultra Beasts in Dynamax Adventures, you'll receive Poipole as a gift in front of the entrance to the Max Lair.

A Variety of Ultra Beasts Await

Xurkitree ImageXurkitree Buzzwole ImageBuzzwole Nihilego ImageNihilego Blacephalon ImageBlacephalon Necrozma ImageNecrozma

You can catch all the Ultra Beasts aside from Poipole and Naganadel simply by completing Dynamax Adventures. However, their appearance is random, and they appear along with other Legendary Pokemon, so this chapter can take a long time to complete.

Keep hunting until you find Necrozma, and have fun catching all the Legendaries and Ultra Beasts you can on the way!

How to Get the Ultra Beasts

Galarian Star Tournament

After receiving the call from Leon, visit Wyndon to participate in the Galarian Star Tournament.

Once you've completed the Galarian Star Tournament, you'll achieve the real ending of The Crown Tundra!
