Pokemon Sun & Moon: 100% Zygarde Guide | Cores & Cells Locations

Only on 3DS: Upgrade Zygarde with 100 hidden Cells and Cores in Pokemon Sun / Moon. Here are all the locations — when to find them and where.

pokemonsumo11

Fully upgrade Zygarde with all 100 Zygarde Cells & Cores hidden throughout the Alola Region in Pokemon Sun and Moon. These tricky locations only appear at certain times of day, making it especially tough to reach that coveted 100% — Zygarde is a guardian of the environment, and its strange cells (and cores) are all part of a single powerful Pokemon.

The basic form of Zygarde is the Cell and the Core. Neither of these can actually use moves, or learn moves, but find enough and you’ll earn the 10% Form of Zygarde. There are three ‘complete’ variants — 10%, 50%, and 100%. The unstoppable 100% is the last form, and it’s going to be tough scrounging up every single hidden cells and core. That’s why we’ve put together a simple text guide showing where you’ll need to go to grab these rare Pokemon pieces.
