The Crown Tundra Story Walkthrough

Catch 5 Ultra Beasts

How to Get Poipole.png

Poipole appears in the Max Lair once 5 Ultra Beasts have been caught through Dynamax Adventures. Once Poipole shows up in the Max Lair, simply speak with it to claim it as your own. Due to how you obtain Poipole, there is no way to utilize Synchronize for your preferred nature, and it is highly likely to be shiny locked.

How to Get the Ultra Beasts

Do You Need to Catch Necrozma?


There is also a chance that Necrozma is not counted towards the total needed for Poipole to appear. If you've caught 4 UBs and Necrozma but Poipole still hasn't showed up, head back into Dynamax Adventures to catch one more. Keep in mind that transferring Ultra Beasts from Pokemon HOME will not count towards the 5 necessary for it to appear, so you must catch all five in Dynamax Adventures for Poipole to appear.
