    Requirements to Find Cyndaquil in Space-Time Distortions

    There are two things that need to be done before you can find Cyndaquil in a space-time distortion. Firstly, you need to have defeated Kleavor—the first of the Noble Pokémon that has gone berserk. This will let space-time distortions begin spawning naturally.

    Secondly, you’ll need to reach the endgame credits. Specifically, you’ll need to have caught Dialga or Palkia in a late-game mission to make this happen. It is only once this is completed that starter Pokémon can spawn in space-time distortions.

    How to Get Space-Time Distortions to Spawn

    Now that you know where to look, it’s time to figure out when and how. The spawning mechanics of space-time distortions can be hard to figure out. However, there are easy ways to find more of them.

    Put simply, space-time distortions appear more often when you spend a lot of time in an area. For example, if you spend an hour exploring the Crimson Mirelands, you’re almost guaranteed to encounter a space-time distortion (or multiple).

    Interestingly, space-time distortions seem to spawn more often when you don’t sleep or fast travel. Just keep running around catching Pokémon and collecting resources.

    Furthermore, don’t return to Jubilife Village. Doing so will reset the space-time distortion timer.

    For simplicity, here’s a checklist of things you should not do if you want to find more space-time distortions:

    • Don’t return to Jubilife Village
    • Avoid using fast travel
    • Don’t sleep

    With that said, nothing else you do seems to affect when space-time distortions show up. While waiting for one, here are some great uses of time:

    • Complete requests (just don’t leave the area)
    • Catch Pokémon
    • Gather resources
    • Craft items

    Alternatively, you can leave your game running while you do something else in real life. However, be sure not to pause your game. Simply let your character stand around idly while time progresses. Check back once in a while to see if a space-time distortion has appeared.
