Want to know how to get to Solaceon Ruins in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. These ruins are an important location if you’re looking to complete the Gen IV Pokedex, so you aren’t alone in wanting to figure out exactly where they are. Even if you’re keeping an eye out for secrets, this isn’t an easy place to find. Here is everything you need to know about getting there.
How to Get to Solaceon Ruins
First off, head on over to Solaceon Town, to the east of Hearthome City. Go to the north end of the town and turn right just before exiting onto Route 210. There’s a narrow path behind a building in town that leads to a location full of trees and ledges to jump down.
Run all the way to the right, then start jumping down the ledges. Continue down until you see a cave opening — that’s the entrance to the Solaceon Ruins.
Ruin Maniac Side Quest & Catching Unown
This is where you need to go to catch Unown, which is necessary to complete the Pokedex, and also finish up the Ruin Maniac side quest. You’ll get this quest after speaking to the Ruin Maniac found in the Ruin Maniac Cave on Route 214. That cave is also where you find TM28 Dig.
The Ruin Maniac challenges you to catch all 26 Unown before he can finish expanding his cave, which means that it’ll grow as you catch more Unown. The game won’t keep track of which Unown you’ve caught since they all fall under the same Pokedex entry. Keep track of them yourself and return to the Ruin Maniac once you’ve caught them all to complete the quest.
That’s everything you need to know about how to get to the Solaceon Ruins in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Be sure to have a look at our guide wiki for more tips, tricks, and other info on the game if you’re looking for more pointers.
