This is a guide for Request 21: “Back-Alley Mr. Mime” in Pokémon Legends: Arceus (PLA).
How to Unlock Request 21
Where to Find Andra
The person who put up this request is Andra, who you gave berries to during Request 14. He’s waiting on the south side of the river, opposite the Craftworks. As outlined in the blackboard notice, Andra is suspicious of a Mr. Mime that lives in the village.
Chase After Mr. Mime
Andra will point to the Mr. Mime in question, skulking in the narrow back alley between the houses in the western residential block. Try to confront the Mr. Mime head on though and you’ll be blocked by an invisible wall. To get around the wall, go around the residential block and enter from the back. There’s an entrance near where you found a Bidoof for Request 8.
The Mr. Mime will run off to the north-east corner of Galaxy Hall. Go over there to speak with Andra. Again, you can’t reach the Mr. Mime directly. So go clock-wise around Galaxy Hall until you’re at the north-west corner. Proceed through the back of Galaxy Hall.
You’ll likely run into some invisible walls. First, keep to the right. When you can’t proceed further, go left till you can’t. Next, head backwards while hugging left. When you can go left again, continue forward. Right before reaching the Mr. Mime, there’s a small wall near the left, but otherwise the path should be clear.
Head over to where Ress is guarding the gate and stand in front of him. While facing Ress/the exit, head right. After going past the fence with a ladder next to it, try and go forward as you continue right. You’ll run into an invisible wall, but soon afterwards you’ll break through and reach the suspect.
Reward for Request 21
For completing this request, you’ll receive 2 Aux Guards. These can be used in battle to boost your Pokémon defensive stats by 2 stages. This effect lasts for 5 turns or when the Pokémon leaves the fight.
