Empty Bottles are a new item in this remake of Link’s Awakening that allows you to capture fairies to use for later. If you’re struggling to get it, here’s how to get the empty bottle in Link’s Awakening.
Getting an Empty Bottle in Link’s Awakening
In the north side of Mabe Village, you can go fishing by speaking to the fishermen at the small pond and he will let you fish by paying up 10 rupees.
Once you begin fishing, you will see an empty bottle all the way on the bottom left corner of the lake. To actually grab it, you need to throw the line out by holding the A button and grab the bottle with the line.
So, this is the hard part. You need to slowly bring the bottle back to the surface by pressing/holding the A button, but you need to stay away from the other fish in the water or else the bottle will fall down again.
The trick to this is to first catch some of the fish in the water so that they don’t get in the way of the bottle, which shouldn’t be too difficult.
What to Do With the Bottle
Open up the menu with the + button and then go to the item tab by pressing R. Highlight your new fairy bottle and then just press X or Y to assign it.
Now, whenever you find a fairy, you can use the bottle to capture it and save it for later. The fairy will heal whenever you need to use it but you need to have it equipped. It won’t automatically heal you when you die like in other Zelda games.
To sum things up:
- Go to the fisherman in Mabe Village.
- Hook the empty bottle on your fishing line –it’s on the bottom left of the pond.
- Pull it out of the water, avoiding the fish in the water.
- Use the bottle to catch fairies.
