How to Start Mission 5¶
After completing Mission 4, you’ll automatically begin Mission 5 at the start of the new day. However, you won’t officially receive the mission until you help out Akari/Rei with a small favor.
1. Meet Akari or Rei at the Training Grounds¶
To begin with, head over to the Training Grounds at the north-west corner of Jubilife Village. Akari/Rei will ask you for a battle.
Survey Corps’ Akari/Rei¶
After that warm up battle, a lady called Zisu will come over. She’ll teach you about making the most your Pokémon’s moves.
Afterwards, Akari/Rei will pass you a mission that was meant for them. You’re to meet with Mai from the Diamond Clan, to help her solve a troublesome request.
2. Meet Mai at the End of Aspiration Hill¶
Once again, depart from Jubilife Village via the Front Gate and head over to the Obsidian Fieldlands. As you step foot in the area, you’ll be jumped by Volo. Whoa, don’t do that, man! He’ll teach you his heart-stopping technique.
To determine whether you’re ready to take on her request, Mai will challenge you to a fight.
Show Mai your skills and she’ll give you 5 Vivichokes, which you can use for crafting Revives etc. Afterwards, she’ll go on ahead.
3. Meet Mai at Deertrack Heights¶
In your own time, make your way to Deertrack Heights, at the top of the small mountain ahead. You could take the direct route, by passing south-east through Deertrack Path. Or you could zig-zag across the mountain, while searching for wild Pokémon and whatnot.
When you meet up with Mai again, she’ll point out the Pokémon that’s been giving her trouble.
4. Defeat the Alpha Kricketune at Deertrack Heights¶
This Kricketune is tougher than the Munchlax and Pikachu you fought before. However, it’s only one (albeit very giant) bug versus up to six of your Pokémon, so we can’t imagine you’d lose. To maximize your chance of success though, we suggest sending out Fire, Rock or Flying-types.
After driving away the Alpha Kricketune, the mission will end amicably. The Galaxy Team will set up a new base camp where you fought the Kricketune: the Heights Camp. The next time you visit the fieldlands, you can fast-travel to this camp to quickly reach different places.
