Fullmoon Island - Catching Cresselia

After obtaining the National Pokedex, go to Canalave City and proceed to
Sailor Eldritch's house (it is located next to the ship that sails to Iron
Island). Talk to the mother and child in there. Leave the house, speak to
Sailor Eldritch and sail to Fullmoon Island.

Once you get there, head for the top-left entrance to find another legendary
Pokemon, Cresselia. Talk to it and it will fly away. Pick up the LUNAR WING.
Take it back to Sailor Eldritch's son in Canalave City.

As for Cresselia, you'll have to go after it, just like what you did with
Mesprit. I suggest going back and forth between a route and a town, until
the Pokemon ends up at your location. (Track its movement with the Marking
Map.) Cresselia stays in the water all the time, so you'll have to surf in
order to encounter it.

| Legendary Pokemon Cresselia                                    |
| Like Mesprit, Cresselia will flee on its first turn, so you'll |
| have to capture it quick. If you still have the Master Ball,   |
| you may use it here if you like. Otherwise, start the battle   |
| with a "hasty-natured" Pokemon (like Machoke) and immediately  |
| throw a Quick Ball to catch your target.                       |

Where do you get the marking app? Thanks

How do you catch Cresselia if you don't have a pokemon with Mean look???
do I just use Quick balls??

Added 27th Jun 2012, ID #157469

Wrong! Using Quick Balls is a bad idea. If u have master balls for her, use 'em. If not, catch Gastly and level him up so he can learn mean look. There u go and your welcome

To get lunar wing you have to talk to the boy and the woman in sailor edriches house, then talk to sailor edrich and he takes you to fullmoon island, and then go up and turn right and through the trees, talk to cresselia and a picture of here will come up, and she will fly off, and the item on the ground is the lunar wing.

That boy had a dream of Darkrai so can you catch Darkrai?

Added 20th Aug 2011, ID #68632

I haven't found Lunar wing!

Added 14th Aug 2011, ID #67066

instead of using too many ultra balls...just have around 20 timer balls..use mean look and put it to sleep after reducing its HP down to red...then start throwing timer balls...i have noticed that they tend to work better on legendary pokemon...i caught dialga, palkia, azelf, mesprit and uxie using timer balls.

You know what using a higher level pokemon with the move mean look will make cresselia easier to catch. Since cresselia is a psychic a fighting type would hurt it the most. I recommend you get a haunter or gengar and teach it mean look and hypnopis(cresselia has a healing move called moonlight and it would be best to put it to sleep after hurting it)! Also have lots of great and ultra balls!!!!(:
Hope i helped you!! ,Lanelane

Added 17th Jan 2011, ID #25753

you are very good in giving advise. please give some more

Added 17th Jan 2011, ID #25722

A master ball wod do it

Added 30th Dec 2010, ID #23102

When I first battled it I used a quick ball and it escaped out of it. The quick ball shook 2 times then it got out and fled. The next time I got a level 60 Crobat and used mean look so it could not flee away. I chipped its HP little by little and then used Hypnosis and it went to sleep. Then I tried a ultra ball and it got out. I tried about 30 times and I caught it. The items you need are a not too strong pokemon,only a little bit higher level pokemon than the cresselia, and this pokemon should be faster than the cresselia and it should know a move that inflicts status problems,The status should either be paralized or frozen or sleep.It should also have a move like mean look to trap it. You need at least 50 ultra balls and about 20 full restores. Keep throwing ultra balls when its Hp is at red. And if you don't catch it, try again and again until you catch it.
