Resort area hidden ruler

Question asked by shadow luigi on

Resort area hidden ruler

There is a swimmer guy in a pool in the resort area, and he constantly talks about some hidden ruler of the area. He says that you can catch it by using a super rod in the water, but I just keep landing level 56 magicarp. Who is the hidden ruler, and how do you get it?

The ruler is a lv. 100 MAGICARP. The lv. 100 one is hard to find but catching a lv 99 one so it can evolve then you can teach it moves atthe pastoria city move tutor.

Guest answered:

The swimmer says it's mind blowing and magikarp isnt mind blowing it could be Lugia because if my pokstery is correct in one of the first Pokemon movies Lugia awakened when zapados moltres and articuno gathered so by catch those three you could awaken lugia

Guest answered:

I am really screwed on this that wacko swimmer dude says it's amazing mind blower super powerful ruler. I thought it would be sumthin like kyogre or phione maybe manaphe. All I can find is [email protected]&?! Magikarp. They're like lv. 86 or 90 I caught a lv. 96 in a normal pokeball on the first try (it's a magikarp it's not hard) thinking there was sumthin special with the moves or ability no just a @&$?! Magikarp

Guest answered:

The hidden ruler is a LVL100 Magikarp. What most people do is catch a lvl 90 then evolve it. Go to the move tutor he can teach it Gyrados moves. But I caught the lvl100 and talked to him. He says "oh you caught the ruler? I guess you're the ruler now." in all, pointless.

Guest answered:

I thought it was shadow Lugia :(
Stupid magikarps
At least I got one lv 96

Guest answered:

Well, people, I KNOW for sure that it is a level 100 magicarp. Useless, huh? Well..ya can't expect much from a $$#@!&*^ magicarp, huh? Well.. When I first got a lvl 89 magicarp I was like " tht possible?" (MAYBE THEY'RE GETTING STRONGER.. AND PLANING A MUTINY!!! DUMM DUMM DUMMMMM....) Well, then after some tries, I got a lvl 100 magicarp! However, ya can't evolve it.. So yeah. And THEN.. I go to the guy, and then he's like.."You caught the ruler! I guess you're the ruler now."

Guest answered:

The ruler mean the ruler like the boss ruler, not measuring ruler. If you don't understand, thonk ofit this way rule/er. If you still don't get it look it up on a dictionary.

Guest answered:

Yeah WRONG!!!! I don't have a glitch & I got an arceus. What the cow

I already have it and it's a level 100 red Garydos and if you put it first in your party and talk to the swimmer he will show you a secret cave that only he knows about and you will find Lugia and it will run and you have to track it with the map app on your poketch
