As we suspected, this additional content brings a brand new Pokémon, called Peachaminus. In this guide, we explain how to beat and capture it.

To take part in this epilogue, don't bother updating your game - there's no need to download anything. However, you do need to carry out certain tasks before you can play it. We explain everything in this section.
The Pokémon Company has already warned players that this epilogue is only accessible under certain conditions. Here's the list:

- You must have taken part in at the Academy tournamentwhich means doing the post-game,
- You must have the DLC The Buried Treasure of the Zero Zone and complete the Turquoise Mask and the Indigo disc.
Recovering the Fabulous Pecha Berry
In fact, there is a fourth condition to fulfil, and this is the one that allows you to launch the epilogue. You must recover the Baie Pêcha Fabuleuse distributed via the menu Mystery gift. It couldn't be simpler.
Go to the Poké Portal, then select Mystery Gift. Then go to the Via Internet. Then all you have to do is claim the famous berry. And now.., head for SeptentriaThe rest of the adventure is about to begin!
Launching the epilogue at Boutique Delapêche
When you arrive at SeptentriaIf you're looking for a shop, head for Boutique Delapêche, in Jaderaude. It's near the Centre Culturel, on the right. There you can talk to the sales assistant, but what we're interested in is the little pink cuddly toy on display.
Interact with the object in question. When you have done so, you will receive a phone call from Pepperwhich asks you to find him in Cuchalaga. At the same time, you get the quest The Night of the Kibi.

After a few discussions with your colleagues, you will receive a letter from Kassis. He invites you to join him in Jaderaude. Before heading back to Septentria, meet up with your friends at the south gate of Mesaledo. Then head for the heights of Jaderaude, in the northern part of the village, for reach the house of Kassis. After your discussion, return to the Cultural Centre.

Worried about his sister, Kassis is asking for your help to take her home then explains that she's been strange for a few days. This is the start of the investigation into "a so-called curse".
Then retrace your steps and enter the Cultural Centre. Search the remote control in the flower pot by the grey door and set off in search of Menzi.
Outside, you face two NPCsjust as strange as Roseille. All they do is shout Kibi Kibi over and over again. A duet battle - with Kassis - kicks in. Here are their Pokémon:

On the spot, he and Pani tell you all about their misadventures and tell you that something strange is wandering the streets of Jaderaude. It is then a sort of little pink ball - who looks exactly like the cuddly toy - appears on the roof of the shop. It is in fact Peachaminus!

Mind you, this is not the simplest of battles and is played out solo. It has six Pokémon in its team. As usual, its flagship Pokémon depends on your starter. It's either Palmaval, Flâmigator or Miascarade. In all cases, it will be level 87.
- Here is the list of your opponents:
- Lougaroc - Level 86 - Rock type,
- Pohmarmotte - Level 86 - Types: Electrik and Combat,
- Muplodocus - Level 86 - Dragon type,

Capture Pechaminus and complete the epilogue
The epilogue is drawing to a close... Right after your battle with Menzi, you'll be able to take on the Pokémon responsible for all this mayhem. And let's face it, he's not too happy about you standing up to him... The battle is similar to a Boss or Raid battle.
Machination : Increases the caster's Special Attack,
Toxik : Severely poisons the target,
Unhealthy Chain: Inflicts Poison damage and has a 50/50 chance of poisoning the target,
Ball'Ombre : Inflicts Spectre damage and can reduce the target's Special Defence,
Peachaminus is level 88. It's a Pokémon from Poison and Spectre typeswhich does not have a Teracrystal type. It has four attacks at its disposal, and essentially seeks to poison your Pokémon. It also has the Toxic Hold Talentwhich confuses the target if it has been poisoned beforehand.
To overcome them easily, we recommend that you have Pokémon with Darkness, Ground, Spectre and/or Psy attacksThese include Crocorible, Spiritomb, Noctali and Magirêve.
Once you have weakened it sufficiently, you can send a Poké Ball to capture it. After your exchanges with Menzi and Roseille, return to Paldea to complete the quest The Night of the Kibi.
