Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set in the old times in the Pokemon world at a time when it was rare to find harmony between people and Pokemon. Set in the land of the Hisui region, known as the Sinnoh region in modern times, you’ll join the Galaxy Expedition Team (or just Galaxy Team for short) as a member of the Survey Corps stationed in Jubilife Village. You will be tasked to meet every species of Pokémon from the Hisui region 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 112, titled ‘Blissey’s Path of Solitude.’ This guide will teach you how to complete the ‘Blissey’s Path of Solitude’ request.
Blissey’s Path of Solitude
In order 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, simply head on to the Training Grounds in the northwest of the Jubilife Village, and on the left side of the building (or behind Ingo), the player will find Gared, who is a member of the Security Corps. Talk to Gared, and he will ask if the player has yet tried Ingo’s Path of Solitude Battles. After selecting ‘Path of Solitude?’ on the prompt, he will explain that the Path of Solitude is a chance to master the art of battling with a single Pokemon. He will say that battling a tough opponent with just one Pokemon in the player’s party feels like reaching for the stars as the player would have to know their Pokemon well to develop the best strategy. Then, Gared will say that he has a request for the player about the Path of Solitude which is said to be tough to beat, so that is what he wants the player to do. Then, after that, a bunch of requests will start, and one of them is the “Blissey’s Path of Solitude” Request!
After that, Gared will tell the player to show him the mark in the player’s Pokedex once the player has completed the Path of Solitude with any of the Pokemon he mentioned.
To complete this request, the player must defeat Ingo and his Snorlax in the Path of Solitude with only a Blissey in the player’s party.
Before talking to Ingo to start the Path of Solitude, ensure that the player has a Blissey around Level 70 as the player would have to battle Ingo’s Level 70 Snorlax.
The player can find an Alpha Blissey (Level 62) slightly north of the Obsidian Falls in the eastern part of the Obsidian Fieldlands. The Alpha Blissey can be found in this location at all times of the day and in every weather condition.
It is recommended that the player’s Blissey has a Nature that boosts Defense, like Impish and Lax. Then, the player can boost Blissey’s Effort Levels, focusing on boosting Blissey’s Defense and HP, using Grit items.
It is worth noting that Ingo’s Snorlax is a Level 70 Normal type Pokemon which means it has a weakness to Fighting type moves (super effective) and immunity to Ghost type moves (no effect). Ingo’s Snorlax will only use one move called Double-Edge, a powerful attack that will also inflict damage on the user.
Check this request’s description; it will give a tip to use healing moves to survive the opponent’s attacks. So, it is recommended to let the player’s Blissey learn and use Soft-Boiled, which will restore the user’s HP.
After training your Blissey and letting it learn the recommended moves, head to Ingo on the left side of Captain Zisu in the Training Grounds and talk to him. Select the ‘Path of Solitude’ on the prompt, select ‘Accept the challenge’ on the next prompt, then Ingo will let you choose one Pokemon, so put your Blissey in the party and remove all the other Pokemon so that the player will only use Blissey. After that, select ‘Begin’ on the next prompt, and the player can now begin the challenge!
In battle, the player can just keep on using Soft-Boiled to restore Blissey’s HP until Ingo’s Snorlax is defeated because of the damage it inflicts on itself by using the Double-Edge attack. As Ingo’s Snorlax can only use Double-Edge five times, Ingo’s Snorlax will then use Struggle, which is a Normal type move that is used when the user has used all of its PP and also inflicts damage on the user; once Ingo’s Snorlax’s PP for Double-Edge runs out.
After defeating Ingo’s Snorlax, Ingo will say that the player’s Blissey has reached the final station on its Path to Solitude and that he has added a mark on Blissey’s page in the Pokedex that signifies its victory. Then, Ingo will reward the player with three Exp. Candy L as a prize for having completed the Path of Solitude.
Afterward, head back to Gared, still near Ingo, and talk to him. Gared will say seeing the player’s Pokemon beat the Path of Solitude was a thrill. Then, finally, the player will be rewarded with one Seed of Mastery and three Exp. Candy M for your efforts, and the “Blissey’s Path of Solitude” Request is now completed!
Now that you have completed the ‘Blissey’s Path of Solitude’ Request, you can now try to complete other requests, complete missions, or complete Arceus’ task for you, which is to catch ‘em all!
