How to start the Scarlet and Violet Epilogue

Be sure you’ve completed the DLC stories and other postgame content, then go to the right spot!

The Epilogue to the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet DLC has just gone live. But it may not be entirely obvious how to start it – even the official website is vague on one of the requirements. What’s needed?

Firstly, you need to complete both of the story segments for both DLC parts for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet – that’s the Teal Mask and Indigo Disk. Also, be sure to complete the Academy Ace Tournament in Paldea – once should be sufficient.

Once you have done that, get a Mythical Pecha Berry from Mystery Gift – you’ll need an Internet connection. Any player can get it – but to use it you do need to buy the The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC.

1. Launch your Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet game.

2. Select Poké Portal on the X menu.

3. Select Mystery Gift, then select Get via Internet to connect to the internet.

4. Choose the gift you want to receive.

5. Watch as the gift arrives in your game. (Your Mythical Pecha Berry will appear in the Key Items pocket of your Bag.)

Next, go to Kitakami, and from the Community Centre head right to “Peachy’s” – a small store that you may forget about. Interact with the Mythical Pecha Berry by the shopkeeper.

And that’s it! Enjoy the wonders of mochi… Mochiiii
