Pokemon Sword & Shield’s latest DLC, The Crown Tundra, has some hidden Legendary ‘mons that you will want to get your hands on. Here is how to obtain Sun & Moon legendaries Poipole, Cosmog, Naganadel, and Cosmoem.

The Pokemon franchise entered its eighth generation with the debut of Sword & Shield in 2019. Its second major DLC, The Crown Tundra, dropped on October 22, and brought a host of Legendary monsters to the Galar region.

Trainers looking to complete everything the update has to offer will want to obtain the Sun & Moon Legendaries Poipole, Cosmog, Naganadel, Cosmoem. Here is how you can obtain these hidden rare characters.

How to get hidden Sun & Moon Pokemon in Crown Tundra

In 2017, Game Freak introduced the Ultra editions of Sun & Moon on the 3DS. The expanded titles included new Legendaries and a whole host of additional creatures for Trainers to catch.

Two of those ‘mons were Poipole & its evolution Naganadel. Gen 7 players will be familiar with the adorable Cosmog, who accompanies popular character Lillie throughout the story.

Thankfully Sword & Shield also lets you catch these epic creatures – despite them not actually being a part of the new Pokedex. Here are the steps to obtaining them.

Cosmog

Cosmog is a Psychic-type Legendary.
  • Step 1: Complete Crown Tundra Legendary hint one. Or more specifically, progress the game until you fight either Glastrier or Spectrier in the town of Freezington.
  • Step 2: After beating either horse Legendary, look for the house with a lady sitting on a crate in front of it. Enter it, you will find an old woman with a pet Cosmog she calls Fwoofy.
  • Step 3: After talking to her, the woman will give you Cosmog for saving the town after beating Glastrier or Spectrier.
  • Step 4: Unfortunately, it is shiny locked. Though, you can evolve it (check out our guide further down).

Poipole

Poipole is a Poison-type.
  • Step 1: Trainers must beat the Crown Tundra’s main story first – that means completing Legendary hints 1 through 3. After a cutscene, Peony will drop clue four on the floor. Go to the Max Lair and talk to him about it.
  • Step 2: You now need to complete clue four. To do this, you need to catch Necrozma in Dynamax Adventures.
  • Step 3: After catching the Sun & Moon Legendary, talk to Peony who will officially check off Legend 4. Poipole, however, will only spawn if you’ve also caught five Ultra Beasts as well. For example: Nihilego, Buzzwole, Pheromosa, Xurkitree, and Guzzlord.
  • Step 4: After beating them and completing Legendary Hint 4 by talking to Peony, Poipole will literally spawn next to the scientist in front of the Dynamax Adventure entrance. The purple monster is given to you, and hovers in front of the green electronic board.

Naganadel

Naganadel evolves from Poipole.
  • Step 1: Now that you have Poipole, fast travel to any Pokemon Center and go to the man at the counter to the left of the entrance. Talk to him to re-learn an old move.
  • Step 2: Have Poipole learn Dragon Pulse (it’s the first move at the top of the list).
  • Step 3: Your monster should already be a high level by default, so now just use a single Rare Candy to trigger its evolution.
  • Step 4: And that’s it, your Poipole will now have evolved into Naganadel.

Cosmoem

Cosmoem evolves into either Solgaleo or Lunala depending on what version of the game you have.
  • Step 1: As an extra bonus, you can also evolve Cosmog into Cosmoem at level 43. Unfortunately the ‘mon only level five, so use Experience Candy XL to boost it.
  • Step 2: In Pokemon Sword, you can then evolve Cosmoem into Solgaleo at level 53, and Lunala for Shield owners.

While getting these Pokemon will not help you complete this Dex, many dedicated Trainers will no doubt want to add them to their Gen 8 collection. Not to mention, there are plenty of Sun & Moon fans in the community.

It’s not entirely clear whether Crown Tundra will be Sword & Shield’s final DLC. However, the October 22 update is the last content pack for the RPG’s Expansion Pass. Only time will tell if this is the finale for the Galar region.

How to defeat The Mandalorian in Fortnite Season 5: Mythic Item locations

The Mandalorian has burst onto the scene in Fortnite Season 5 with brand new Mythic Items – a Star Wars inspired jetpack and weapon – leaving players wondering how to get ahold of them in-game. 

In previous seasons, these Mythic weapons and items have been guarded by fierce non-playable characters known as bosses. These are much harder to take down than the average player in Epic Games‘ battle royale title and often have henchman by their side to protect the valuable loot they hold.

Luckily for you, in Season 5 it’s not as difficult as times gone by – because there’s not as many of them to tackle. In fact, getting ahold of The Mandalorian Mythic set is pretty easy if you know where to look. All you have to do is be the person that takes him down.

That’s what we’re going to help with.

New landing spots have appeared all over the Fortnite island, but where’s the Mythic Items?

Fortnite Season 5 Mythic weapon and item location

First of all, you’re going to have to know where to go.

The Mandalorian can be seen patrolling around one area of the map in Fortnite Season 5, and it’s just south of Colossal Coliseum, as seen in the map below. There, you will find not only the character but also his parked up ship.

At this location, he will be carrying both a Mythic weapon and jetpack. These can be obtained by taking him out, just like a bounty hunter.

Now you know where he is, it’s all about eliminating him as fast as possible.

Here’s the best way to defeat him:

  1. Drop from the Battle Bus at The Mandalorian’s ship, located between Colossal Coliseum and Lazy Lake.
  2. Land with a good distance between yourself and the ship.
  3. Pick up a weapon nearby.
  4. Reach high ground, which is actually a slope of sand near the ship.
  5. Use cover to protect yourself from his shots, or build, and by peeking out with your weapon keep firing at him.
  6. Collect the Mandalorian Mythic Items (Amban Sniper Rifle & The Mandalorian’s Jetpack) from the downed character.
  7. Head over to the ship and open the Razor Chest.

Here’s the loot you will find after taking him down.

Do have in mind that this is the only known boss on the Fortnite Season 5 map, with others expected to join him, so it’s bound to be a popular landing spot. Not just that, but let’s face it, it is nice to just stop by to see a bit of a Star Wars crossover as well.

So, there you have it! That’s the quickest and safest way you’re going to be able to get ahold of that elusive Razor Chest in Fortnite Season 5.
