Thrifty Megamart

  1. Go to the Thrifty Megamart. Below are the locations of the Ghost-type Pokemon that you need to take a picture of.
    • At the bottom center of the site, take a picture of a Lv.30 Ghastly that will appear in the conveyor belt.
    • In the upper left corner of the location, take a picture of a Lv.30 Haunter near the shopping cart.
    • At the right side of the market, take a picture of a Lv.30 Gengar near the Pikachu and Marill dolls
  2. Pursue the distant Pikachu.
    • The Poke Finder starts automatically once you’ve entered through the door. Look behind you and you will see Mimikyu.
    • Once you’ve taken a picture of Mimikyu, it will reveal itself to be a Totem Pokemon and will challenge you to a battle.

Totem Pokémon: Mimikyu

  1. When Mimikyu uses the SOS Call, a Hau Lv. 27 will appear in battle. Mimikyu can also use Disguise, an ability that will nullify any damage taken by an enemy Pokemon’s move.
  2. Disguise is a very powerful ability, so be careful on what moves you are going to use each turn. Therefore, if you use a Z-move first, it will be a waste. Blow its cover with a weak move first, then use a Z-move to easily defeat it.
  3. Head outside of the Thrifty Megamart after the battle. Acerola will give you Ghostium Z and 10x Dusk Ball.
  4. After you’ve finished the trial, there is a Mimikyu hiding behind the fence. Then, head to Route 15.

Route 14

  1. You will get a Ghostium Z and 10 Dark Balls from the Trial Captain.
