After defeating both of them and talking with Sailor Darlow, he will inform the player that Nezuko, his daughter, is in a nightmare. To get a full understanding of Nezuko’s situation, the player needs to speak with Nezuko’s mom, in Canalave House 3. Nezuko’s mother explains that the way to help Nezuko is to find a Lunar Wing on Fullmoon Island.

Fullmoon Island

Once the player has spoken with Nezuko’s mom, speak with Sailor Darlow to access Fullmoon Island. At the core of the island, Cresselia will be waiting. Interacting with it will cause Darkrai to appear and kidnap it, leaving only a Lunar Wing behind. Take this back to Nezuko to wake her up.

Unruly Pokémon

Following the rescue of Nezuko, there will be a news broadcast saying there are four enraged Pokémon causing problems all across Sinnoh. They will all be level 100 and very strong.

  • Gengar in Mt. Coronet 4F
  • Mismagius in Acuity Lakefront
  • Spiritomb in Pastoria City
  • Sableye in Canalave Library

Sleeping Pokémon

An officer will inform the player that the Pokémon you just defeated left some Pokémon inside of nightmares. For this part, you will need a Pokémon with either Wake-Up Slap or Uproar.

  • Clefable in Sunyshore City
  • Dragonite in Celestic Ruins
  • Greninja in Twinleaf Town
  • Chansey in Hearthome City

After defeating Giovanni, deep inside Fullmoon Island, you will need to fight a level 120 Darkrai.

Moon Dust and catching Cresselia

Darkrai has been released from Team Rocket’s mind control, but Cresselia is still asleep. Sailor Darlow knows of someone that may be of help, his name is Doctor House and he is in Mossdeep City Space Center.

The doctor will request 3 Oran Berries, 10 Chesto Berries, 7 Cherri Berries, 7 Moon Dust, and a 50,000 fee for making the potion.

To get the Moon Dust, you must travel to the Moon, this will cost 15,000. Interact with the small dark rocks.

When all the ingredients have been collected, speak with Doctor House again. He will give you the Awakening Potion. Be warned, he will automatically take the 50,000. Give it to Cresselia to awaken it.

Before fighting it, it will ask you if you want to battle it. Take this time to grab a Synchronize Pokémon and a Master Ball, if need be. Once all your preparations are done, interact with Cresselia and catch it. Cresselia will be level 75.
