Beat Elite Four to get Kyogre

Kyogre is an endgame Pokemon so to catch it, you must defeat the Elite Four, the Champion, and win the League Championship. To do so:

  • Defeat all the trainers and make your way through Victory Road.
  • Enter the Ever Grande City and head over to the Pokemon League Hall.
  • Restore your Pokemon’s health at the healing station to the left of the Main Entrance.
  • On the right side of the entrance, stock up on items like Revives, Hyper Potions, Status Heals, Full Restore, etc.
  • Go through the entrance to fight the Elite Four members:
    • Sidney (Dark Type)
    • Phoebe (Ghost Type)
    • Glacia (Ice and Water Type)
    • Drake (Dragon Type)
  • Make sure you save the game after beating each member so you don’t have to start all over.
  • After beating the Elite Four, face the Champion, Wallace. He will use Water-type Pokemon with several dual elemental types.
  • Once you beat Wallace, you will be crowned as the Pokemon League Champion.

Catching Kyogre (Location)

Marine Cave location to find Kyogre


After becoming the Pokemon League Champion, use the Fly ability to head over to Fortree City. Restore the health of your Pokemon and restock on items like Revives and Potions. Make sure you carry up to 60 Ultra Balls before going to Kyogre’s location. Now, head over to Route 119 and go to the Weather Institute. Make your way to the first floor and talk to the Scientist to get Kyogre’s Location.

The location can vary depending on whether you caught Groudon before. If the scientist mentions a Heavy Downpour, then you will find Kyogre on Route 105, Route 125, Route 127, or Route 129. If he mentions a Drought, then you’ll have to face Groudon before returning to the scientist again.


Once you get the route number from the scientist, use the Fly ability to get to the nearest town to that route. Then, use the Swim ability on the nearest water body and look for a Dark Spot. Use the Dive ability on that spot and it will lead you to a Marine Cave where Kyogre is located. Save the game before facing it, make sure you have Pokemon above level 70, and you will catch it with a little elbow grease.
