How to Unlock Request 121
1. Participate in the Path of Solitude with Wurmple
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.
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.
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
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
