Lostlorn Forest

Lostlorn Forest


Despite its ominous-sounding name, you won’t get lost in this forest, unless you’re drunk in the morning. Still, there’s definitely something eerie about this forest, once said to make people get lost for no reason.

You’ll find exactly zero trainers in this quiet forest, but more wild Pokemon than you can shake a stick at. This area is also home to an interesting and very elusive event.

The correct Pokemon should have the OT "GAMESTP" or "WIN2011".

If you transfer a Shiny Raikou , Shiny Entei or Shiny Suicune from Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, or SoulSilver obtained via a special event (tough luck if you weren’t around, although you could ask a friend or resort to cheat codes; just don’t ask us!), approach the caravan and something will happen.

Before your eyes, a non-shiny version of Raikou, Entei or Suicune will appear in battle. Damage the beast and its illusion will be shattered, revealing its true identity: Zoroark ! Now you may attempt to capture this rare, illusionary beast and add it to your ever-growing collection.
