How to start the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet epilogue

The DLC for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet was always known to be two parts: The Teal Mask and The Indigo Disk. That said, not every question will be answered even after finishing the final bit of content in the latter DLC. Thankfully, GameFreak is giving us one last reason to return to Paldea to wrap up our adventure for good. This epilogue is totally free and even brings in one last Pokemon to catch called Pecharunt, but it is a little tricky to start. This short little challenge includes a few new fights, meeting up with some old friends, and wrapping up the story, so let’s close this chapter of our Pokemon adventure.

You can’t start the epilogue until you’ve beaten all the main content of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, as well as both DLCs, The Teal Mask and Indigo Disk. So long as you’ve done that, once you boot up the game, you must collect the Mythical Pecha Berry. Instead of just finding or being given this item, you need to claim it as a Mystery Gift through the Poke Portal. Select Mystery Gift -> Recieve Via Internet and then choose the Mythical Pecha Berry Gift.

With this item in your inventory, make your way to Kitakami and to Mossui Town. Find Peachy’s shop near the Community Center, and you will have the option to interact with a pink plush toy on the counter. This will trigger a cutscene and kick off this last adventure.

The final piece of DLC for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet has launched and will add the final batch of monsters to the game alongside its story content. While there are a limited number of brand new Pokémon, the returning cast, including every previous starter, is enough to get any veteran trainer interested in diving into the new content. The only issue is that this DLC asks quite a bit of you before letting you access it, so we'll make sure you know all the prerequisites before you can attend Blueberry Academy in the Indigo Disk DLC.

If you were hoping to be able to start a new game and go straight to the DLC to take on the game with your favorite started, you will unfortunately be disappointed. Not only do you have to beat the base game's main campaign, up to and including The Way Home. That means beating the Elite Four and the post-game Area Zero content that concludes with you battling your professor in the Great Crater.

How to permanently upgrade stats in God of War Ragnarok: Valhalla

Despite all falling into the roguelike genre, every game within that category handles progression differently. Some have no permanent upgrades and instead force the player to simply rely on their skills and luck during each run, while others dole out buffs and tools that the player can accumulate over multiple runs to make each one a bit easier.

God of War Ragnarök: Valhalla falls into the latter category thanks to Master Seals. These special rewards allow Kratos to get permanent buffs to his base stats, easing the difficulty a bit for those who need it. Just getting the seals isn't enough, and not even Mimir will give you a clue on how to spend them, so we'll help you return Kratos to his godly status.

How to start the God of War: Ragnarok Valhalla DLC
Kratos outside the gates of Valhalla.

Over a year after launch, God of War: Ragnarok got a surprise addition of new content in the form of the Valhalla DLC. Revealed at The Game Awards 2023 and available for free less than a week later, this new adventure takes place after the conclusion of the main story and sees Kratos travel to the titular realm of the gods. Billed as a primarily rogue-like experience, there is quite a bit more to this DLC than some may be expecting.

Since it does technically follow the events of the main game, many players may wonder if they need to first see the story through before they can access it, or at what point it will become available. We may not be as wise as Mimir, but we can share some knowledge on how to start the Valhalla DLC in God of War: Ragnarok.
