Arcanine Mount (quest)
|Arcanine Mount (quest)|
The Arcanine Mount quest is an optional quest that is progressible within the Kanto region.
Speaking to the ranch-manager
From the Route 19 bay (contiguously southwards of Fuchsia City), surf eastwards and meander your way around the semgentative mountainside; this will lead you to the ranch-farm peninsula of the route, having the Arcanine Farm appellation.
Speak to the ranch-manager, who can be found in the entryway of one of the exterior fencehouses; see the pictorial thumbnail to the right for a visual pointer.
He initially feigns contentment in his current job as a ranch-manager, before irrepressibly bemoaning his dicontentment over the job, revealing that he wanted to pursue a career in surfing was saddled up on the ranch to assume his forefather's mantle for managing it. Also wistful to see the rarer Pokémon inhabitants of the nearby safari zone yet unable to do so himself due to his confinement to his family's ranch, he will ask for you to hunt for and show him three of those Pokémon, yourself: Pinsir, Kangaskhan, and Chansey.
Hunting for the Pokémon
Pinsir, Kangaskhan, and Chansey can be submissibly obtained from anywhere at any time, but all of them must be under your OT registry; this precludes the alternative of trading for them, meaning you must be their originative owner to qualify for the quest.
You will not have to relinquish the Pokémon to him; you will simply need to show it to him, allowing you to retain whatever you have caught.
This step will be seamless if you have already obtained some or all of the requisite Pokémon, but it can be rather time-consuming if you elect to hunt for them all. It is advisable to read the Pokémon-specific articles for all obtentionary information for them, but the most viable methods for each Pokémon are advisorily explained below.
- Main article: Pinsir (obtainability)
Pinsir's is huntable in nearby Safari Exclusive zone, which requires active membership in order to be accessible. Due to the potentially chafing requirements and impositions of membership, limited time sessions within the safari zone, and potentially having to recurrently pay to re-enter the zone, this area is discommended if you already have deeper access to other hunting areas for it. Aswell as this Pinsir is later Huntable within the safari zone
As well as this it may be preferred by user's to Heabutt trees for the a better chance at encountering a Pinsir.

The following Locations where membership is required are:
▪︎Safari Exclusive Zone
- Main article: Kangaskhan (obtainability)
Kangaskhan is strictly huntable within the Kanto Safari Zone and Rock Tunnel. As a membership-exclusive spawn in Rock Tunnel 1, the Rock Tunnel cave is considered optimal for active members, as it spares the entry expenses and time-limit constraints of the safari zone.
- Main article: Chansey (obtainability)
Chansey spawns in several areas and has the same percental probability for most of them, with the majority of its spawn locations sharing the same optimum, probability-wise; see its individual article for more information, regardingly.
Once you have requisitely culled all-three Pokémon, return to the ranch-manager. Because he will prompt you to show them, you should ensure that you have all-three Pokémon in your on-hand lineup before returning to him.
The quest is now complete!
