Request 5: What It Takes to Be Awesome

Seren Morgan-Roberts

A guide on how to complete Request 5: What it Takes to be Awesome in Pokémon Legends: ARCEUS (PLA).

Request 5: What it Takes to be Awesome.

To pick up this request, you’ll need to talk to the young boy Sho, who’s sat with his friend on a bench between the pastures and the southern gate. Sho asks you to fetch him x5 Poké balls so he can be an awesome Pokémon trainer.

How to Craft Poké balls

There are a few different ways to obtain Poké balls, but the easiest way to do so would be to craft some. To craft 1 Poké ball, you’ll need x1 Apricorn and x1 Red Tumblestone. These are items readily found across all excursion regions. In fact it’s likely that you already have 5 Poké balls in your arsenal.

If you have no materials or Poké balls to hand, head over to Choy’s shop and you can purchase some Poké balls for 100 Poké dollars.

Once you have them, speak to Sho and give him the Poké balls to finish the request. He’ll reward you with x3 Grit Dust.
