Elsewhere Forest: Forest's description

A mysterious power within this foggy forest seems to have uncoupled the climate from the flow of time.

Elsewhere Forest: Forest's alternative routes

The Elsewhere Forest is a very peculiar region to explore as it offers quite a few different routes for you to choose from. Generally speaking, two alternative pathways are available. Yet, your exploration will lead you into parts of the forest with unique environmental conditions causing them to be stuck in a single season—more on how to access each season after covering the alternative routes.

The first alternative route you come across during your exploration is only available from research level 2 onward. Right at the beginning, you will come across an area with a floating boulder to your right. Play the melody, and the Trevenant nearby will joyfully make way for you to select another route after scanning. Follow it to get access to 2 different parts of the forest.

The second route becomes available after venturing through one of the four seasonal biomes and returning into the foggy portion of the forest. Upon return, you must complete Deerling's event at least once to permanently unlock the second alternative route. So, what do you have to do to achieve that? Activate the first two Crystablooms you come across, and then, once you get to the Crystablooms situated right behind each other, only illuminate the latter. Then, progress further until you come across another Crystabloom. Activate this one too, and watch an Espeon, Deerling, and Sawsbuck gather around it. Follow the path a bit further until you encounter a scan prompt. Proceed to scan it and select the alternative route right after to permanently be able to choose this route without having to go through the event a second time.

Lastly, as promised above, here is how to affect the seasonal biome selection.

  • The Spring season becomes accessible by feeding Espeon a Fluffruit.
  • The Summer season becomes accessible by throwing an Illumina Orb at Espeon.
  • The Autumn season becomes accessible by selecting the first alternative route and feeding Espeon a Fluffruit.
  • The Winter season becomes accessible by selecting the first alternative route and throwing an Illumina Orb at Espeon.

However, if you do not interact with Espeon to manipulate the biome selection or hit it with a Fluffruit, your game will randomly choose a biome for you.
