Request 121: Wurmple's Path of Solitude

Vincent Lau

This is a guide for Request 121: “Wurmple’s Path of Solitude” in the “Daybreak” DLC for Pokémon Legends: Arceus (PLA).

How to Unlock Request 121

(1 of 2) OK, Gared, whats it going to be this time?

OK, Gared, whats it going to be this time? (left), Make no mistake, this is nearly as bad as Magikarps Path of Solitude. (right)

After completing Request 108 through Request 117, you can receive 5 additional requests–including this one–from Gared at the Jubilife Village Training Grounds.

1. Participate in the Path of Solitude with Wurmple

To complete this request, you must conquer the Path of Solitude with the strongest Wurmple you can achieve.

Speak to Ingo at the Training Grounds with Wurmple as your only party member and choose the “Path of Solitude” option. You can change your party by choosing the “Select Pokémon” option when speaking with Ingo.

Warden Ingo

It’s only a Level 50 Staraptor, yet you will need a Level 90 or higher Wurmple to win the fight, due to how incredibly weak Wurmple is. We really hope you started training a Wurmple (and Kricketot) when doing Request 117.

On top of that, your Wurmple should ideally have an Attack-boosting Nature like Adamant, but not one that lowers Sp. Def. Otherwise you may need a higher Level Wurmple still. Plus you need max Effort Levels in HP, Attack, Sp. Def and Speed.

(1 of 2) Open with a Strong Style Poison Sting.

This fight is purely about numbers. Begin by using Strong Style Poison Sting to hurt Staraptor and inflict poison. Staraptor should then attack twice in a row, receiving poison damage twice. Meanwhile your Wurmple should survive, but only just. Finally, end the fight with another Strong Style Poison Sting.

During the fight, your Wurmple needs to survive 3 Gusts; if it doesn’t (or its second Poison Sting doesn’t KO Staraptor), you probably need to Level Up some more.

Reward for Request 121

(1 of 2) Heres our amazing Wurmple. Ignore the max Defense.

Heres our amazing Wurmple. Ignore the max Defense. (left), Another Path of Solitude bites the dust. (right)

For clipping Staraptor’s wings (again), Ingo will give you some rewards such as Exp. Candies or Grit items. Additionally, for your first clear, he’ll add a “Path of Solitude” stamp in Wurmple’s Pokédex page.

Show the stamp to Gared to complete this request, earning you:

  • Seed of Mastery x1
  • Exp. Candy XL x1
