After you’ve started the epilogue storyline, simply proceed through the new main quest as directed. Near the end of the game, you will face off against one last trainer. Upon defeating them, you will be forced into a battle with Pecharunt. Don’t be alarmed that you can’t catch it during this fight! You’re intended to fully KO Pecharunt in this encounter. Once it’s HP is zero, you will be instructed to catch it with a Pokeball from Kieran. At this point, choose whichever ball you like and go for the catch. It’s a guaranteed capture, so no need to worry about it breaking free.

Pecharunt is a Ghost/Poison type with the Poison Puppeteer ability and Malignant Chain signature move.

No survival game is complete without the ability to fish, which was why it was so odd that Lego Fortnite launched without this option. Thankfully, that has been rectified in an update, and we finally have a use for all those large bodies of water around the world. Games handle fishing in a few ways, but in this case, you just need to get yourself a rod and set up near some water to collect all the fish you can cook and eat. Of course, you can't just find a rod. Being a crafting game, you will need to make your own, and we've got the recipe for you so you can get right to fishing.

The most important part of any ship has to be its name. In Helldivers 2, you're fortunate enough to get a vessel all of your own right away, meaning you need to come up with a name on the spot from the available presets. If you're unprepared, you might enter something that you end up wishing you could change, but there isn't an obvious way to edit your choice after it's been made. In other games, you might need to spend some currency like Warbonds or Super Credits to alter something like this, but that's not the case here. Once you know the trick, you can alter your ship's name whenever you wish.

Changing your ship's name takes no time at all in Helldivers 2. Just go over to the Ship Management station on the left side of the bridge. Interact with the terminal and you will be on the Destroyer tab, which has all your ship's stats, by default. On the right, you can see the option to Change Ship Name above the Ship Log. Just press Square here if you're on PlayStation 5 or R on PC to open up the prompt to choose whichever combination of words your heart desires for your defender of Super Earth. Simply apply the changes when you're happy and get back to spreading some Democracy!
