Pokemon Moon and Sun Zygarde Core and Cell Locations Guide

Pokemon Moon and Sun Zygarde Core and Cell Locations Guide

This is a brief guide to finding all 100 of the Zygarde Cells and Cores scattered around Alola in Pokemon Sun and Moon. You have to wait until you get to Akala Island and meet up with a certain pair of globe trotting trainers on holiday from Kalos to begin your collectathon, as you won’t get the all-important Zygarde Cube until then. Once you get the Cube, the Cells and Cores will become visible to you. You’ll receive infrequent guidance from the folks who gave you the Cube as you collect Cells and Cores, which will eventually lead to them telling you to come to the Aether Foundation mobile lab on Route 15. While you can’t get there for quite some time (until you can deal with rocks while Surfing), once you do, you can use your collected Cells and Cores to create a Zygarde of your very own!


Zygarde now has multiple Forms, the 10% Form (where it looks like a dog with a scarf on its neck), the 50% Form (which is its default appearance in X and Y), and the 100% Form (which is much more humanoid). Each of the Cores you collect can teach your Zygarde different unique moves, as well. Zygarde is given to you first at level 30, and later at level 50.


Before going into the Post-Game, you are able to find 81 Cells and 5 Cores, for a total of 86% in your Zygarde Cube. The remaining 14 Cells are only accessible after you enter the Post-Game (one of which you’ll spot during one of the ending cutscenes, but be unable to do a thing about until you regain normal control).


The locations listed in this guide are done in roughly the order you can get to them in normal progression.
