Request 103: Digging for Tomorrow

Vincent Lau

This is a guide for Request 103: “Digging for Tomorrow” in the “Daybreak” DLC for Pokémon Legends: Arceus (PLA).

How to Unlock Request 103

(1 of 2) Kochika is hiding near the corner of Cyllenes office.

This request will only appear during the postgame (Mission 19) and after you’ve downloaded the Version 1.1.0 (or higher) update for this game. If both conditions are met, a young man called Kochika will appear in Captain Cyllene’s office in Galaxy Hall–by the left-hand side corner when entering.

Speak to Kochika to accept this request.

1. Look for the Alpha Onix in Oreburrow Tunnel

(1 of 2) Oreburrow Tunnel entrances.

Depart from Jubilife Village towards the Obsidian Fieldlands. We recommend entering from the Heights Camp, so you can easily glide down to the tunnel.

If you’ve never visited Oreburrow Tunnel, it’s located at the easternmost fringe of the fieldlands, vertically halfway. There are entrances towards the north (blocked by boulders that you can destroy by sending out a Pokémon) and the south.

It doesn’t matter which entrance you enter from; keep going through the tunnel until you reach the wide open space near the center. Towards the back, you should notice an alpha Onix. Approach it to trigger a brief cutscene.

2. Defeat the Alpha Onix

Having identified the target, it’s time to subdue it. Approach the Onix a second time to fight it.

Alpha Pokémon

(1 of 2) Eh, this aint too scary compared to the likes of Dialga and Palkia.

Onix 60 pokemonplatyperock.pngpokemonplatypeground.png

This should barely pose a challenge, especially if you have strong Water or Grass-types. By the way, you can’t catch this Pokémon. We learned this the hard way.

After defeating the Onix, this request will end.

Reward for Request 103

For your troubles, you’ll receive:

  • Iron Chunk x20
