Pokemon Scarlet & Violet is finally here, bringing both newcomers and veteran trainers to the region of Paldea, a place full of mysteries and adventures for you to experience. You will be able to become a Champion, heal a wounded companion, and help a group of students to clean their names, but the biggest challenge still remains at the bottom of a crater.

After finishing the three main storylines in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, you will have access to the last chapter in this adventure, called The Way Home. Level up your team, buy as many items as you need, and brace yourself very tight, because here's everything you need to know about it.

How To Unlock The Way Home Main Quest

Once you finish both "Victory Road", "Starfall Street", and the Path Of Legends" main quests you will receive a call from Arven, telling you that he contacted Penny and Nemona to travel to Area Zero and figure out once and for all what's going on with Professor Sada/Turo. Go to the gate next to the crater, and a cutscene will play where you will reunite with Arven, and this final chapter will begin.

Travel To Area Zero And Research Station #1

Once you're inside the facility you will meet Nemona and Penny, and with your team assembled everyone will jump onto Koraidon/Miraidon and glide down the crater that leads to Area Zero. Once you give your first steps into this unnatural area full of powerful pokemon, you will reunite with your friends and proceed to the Research Stations.

Reaching the first one will trigger a short battle against a Glimmora, a Rock/Poison type pokemon that you have already seen during your Champion fight against La Primera, so defeat it as quickly as possible. Enter the Station so a cutscene plays where the Professor contacts you through a speaker, explaining that you need to find three more Stations and turn their locks off, to be able to enter the Zero Lab at the bottom of the crater. So you must go on, with your team at your side.

Reach Research Station #2

Reaching the second Research Station will trigger a cutscene, and you will be attacked by what seems to be a Jigglypuff or Delibird (depending on your version), but not quite… Defeat this mysterious pokemon and proceed inside the base.

Reach Research Station #3

As you get close to the third Station you will be attacked by another strange pokemon, but this time it's a well-known one since we're talking about the Quaking Earth Titan.

Reach Research Station #4 And Zero Lab

Get inside Research Station #4, and there you will find the partially-collapsed debris and ruins of an unknown disaster. This time, the Professor's odd messages in the speaker will alarm Arven, who suspects things have gone very, very wrong.

Proceed to the Zero Lab, where a myriad of strange pokemon will show up to difficult things. On top of that, a feral Koraidon/Miraidon will also show up and threat your partner Koraidon/Miraidon before heading inside the lab.

With too many questions and so few answers, you have to follow the AI to the time machine, to destroy it once and for all.
