Sword Valley, aptly named because it is located on the sword the Mechonis used to attack the Bionis, is home to the battle you see at the beginning of the game. There are large gates blocking the way, but you don't necessarily have to open some of them. In order to open them, though, you will need to use a console, some of which have locks on them, requiring you to use another console to unlock the former. Note that once you clear the Mechonis Field part of the game, this area (and Galahad Fortress) become inaccessible.

Note: This place has nothing but Mechons as enemies, so either bring Shulk along or purchase Anti-Mechon weapons at the beginning of the map.


Note: The items are listed in the exact order as you input them into the Collectopaedia, so it's easy to know which one(s) you are missing.
