Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set in olden times in the Pokemon world when it was rare to find harmony between people and Pokemon. Set in the Hisui region, modern-day Sinnoh, you will join the Galaxy Expedition Team (Galaxy Team for short) as a member of the Survey Corps stationed in Jubilife Village. You will be tasked to meet every Hisui Region Pokemon species to complete the region’s first-ever Pokédex.
The Galaxy Team will task the player to do missions in the game. Various people will also ask for help from the player in the form of requests. One of these requests is Request 106, titled the ‘Adaman’s Hope.’ This guide will teach you how to complete the ‘Adaman’s Hope’ request.
To unlock this request, the player must first complete the ‘Massive Mass Outbreak in the Icelands’ request (request 101) and the ‘Daybreak’ request (request 102), where the player must investigate the massive mass outbreaks in the Alabaster Icelands and complete the Daybreak DLC.
After doing the requirements mentioned above, you can now start this request! To do that, head on to the shore in Gingko Landing just east of the Beachside Camp in the Cobalt Coastlands, and there, the player will find Adaman of the Diamond Clan looking out into the sea. Approach Adaman, and he will tell the player that time changes many things, but the ocean stays the same and say that the Celestica people must have looked out at this same view long ago. Then, he will ask the player a favor about something that his grandfather told him, which is that the Adaman Crystal has the power to change Dialga into its otherworldly form. Then, after selecting a reply, he will say that he wants to see if he and his Pokemon’s strength is enough to take down Dialga in his otherworldly form. Then, the ‘Adaman’s Hope’ Request started just like that!
To complete this request, the player must only use Dialga in its Origin Form to defeat Adaman and his Pokemon!
To do that, the player must first head back to any of the Base Camps in the Cobalt Coastlands, talk to the Galaxy Member near the crafting workbench and the tent, select the “I want to see my Pokemon” on the prompt, and move Dialga to the player’s party and remove all the other Pokemon so that Dialga will be the only Pokemon in the player’s party. Then, press the B button to return to the game. After that, press the up directional button and go to the player’s Satchel, press the R button to switch to the Key Items tab, select the Adaman Crystal, select ‘Use’ on the prompt, then select Dialga to use the Adaman Crystal on Dialga. After that, the screen will turn white, and Dialga will transform into its Origin Form!
Before heading back to Adaman, ensure that the player has a few Hyper Potions or Full Restores on hand as, again, the player would have to battle Adaman and his Pokemon with only Dialga in the party. This will not be a hard battle, but it would be best to be ready for anything.
Next, head back to Adaman, still near the shore of Gingko Landing east of the Beachside Camp, and talk to him. Adaman will say that Dialga gave them all the gift of time, and he wants to see its real power in battle. After confirming the prompt, Adaman will address Dialga and say that he is standing before it as leader of the Diamond Clan to show it what he is made of. Then, the battle against Adaman will commence!
Adaman will use Leafeon, Umbreon, and Vaporeon all at the same time. With that in mind, it is essential to note the following:
Adaman’s Leafeon is a Level 65 Grass-type Pokemon, which means it has a weakness to the Bug-type, Fire-type, Flying-type, Ice-type, and Poison-type moves (super effective) and resistance to Electric-type, Grass-type, Ground-type, and Water-type moves (not very effective).
Adaman’s Umbreon is a Level 34 Dark type Pokemon which means it has a weakness to the Bug-type, Fairy-type, and Fighting-type moves (super effective), a resistance to Dark-type and Ghost-type moves (not very effective), and immunity to Psychic-type moves (no effect).
Adaman’s Vaporeon is a Level 34 Water-type Pokemon. It has a weakness in Grass-type and Electric-type moves (super effective) and resistance to Fire-type, Ice-type, Steel-type, and Water-type moves (not very effective).
It is recommended that the player first takedown Adaman’s Leafeon as it is the strongest Pokemon in his party. Fortunately, Dialga can learn Flamethrower, which can be super effective to Grass-type Pokemon like Leafeon. After that, Adaman’s Umbreon and Vaporeon will be easy to defeat because of their low level compared to Dialga.
After defeating Adaman and all his Pokemon, Adaman will say that Dialga’s power is too much to comprehend, but through their battle, he thinks he understood Dialga’s will. He will then say that it is amazing that you can understand someone by battling all out with them. He will then say that if everyone in the Hisui region partnered up with Pokemon to express themselves through battle, living in the region would be even more fun. After that, Adaman will say he thinks he will have his clan’s people start training up in Jubilife Village’s Training Grounds.
Finally, the ‘Adaman’s Hope request is completed, and the player will be rewarded with one Exp. Candy XL and one Leaf Stone for your efforts.
Now that you have completed the ‘Adaman’s Hope’ Request, you can try to meet other requests, complete missions, or complete Arceus’ task for you, which is to catch them all!
