Pokemon Sun and Moon: Where to Find All of the Zygarde Cells


Having trouble finding enough cells to create Zygarde's final form? Here's a helpful Pokemon Sun and Moon guide that details the location of every Zygarde cell in Alola.

Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon could spell the beginning of a whole new Pokemon craze. Aside from the fact that the games include Rowlett, the greatest Pokemon ever created, they also represent 20 years of learning from each previously released Pokemon title being implemented in one radically different new pair. The end result has been an incredibly positive critical response to Pokemon Sun and Moon, and gamers are starting to take notice and purchase one of the two even if they initially hadn't planned on it.

The biggest selling point for relapsing Pokemon trainers worldwide seems to be Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon's myriad innovations to the way a Pokemon game traditionally plays out. Pokemon Sun and Moon has done away with the expected Gym structure of previous titles in favor of four islands with guardians instead, while legendary beasts have now been replaced by the mysterious Pokemon Sun and Moon Ultra Beasts. Nothing is quite as mysterious or exciting, however, as the inclusion of Zygarde, who trainers saw previously in Pokemon X and Y.

This time, however, there are two new Zygarde forms available in Pokemon Sun and Moon - Zygarde 10% Forme, which looks like a nuclear Houndoom, and Zygarde Complete Forme, one of the single coolest Pokemon designs ever released. Gamers looking to add the Complete Forme of Zygarde to their Pokemon team will have to put in the requisite work, however, which involves collecting 100 different Zygarde cells scattered throughout Alola.

It might not be as tedious as attempting to get a shiny Pokemon Sun and Moon starter, but it can definitely be taxing, especially if gamers don't already know the locations of the Zygarde cells. For that reason, Game Rant has put together a handy guide that details where to find all 100 Zygarde cells in Alola, so that trainers can spend more time soaking up the sun or chasing down the Alolan versions of some series classics.
