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.                       |

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

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.
