How to complete the river log puzzle to get to Mokupuni Dojo

The path to Mokupuni’s Dojo is blocked off by a river of lava, and you need to solve a puzzle where you jump from raft to raft to get to the other side and face the Dojo master.

There are three rivers available. Keep in mind that you need to cross only the one in the center to get to the Dojo. The rivers on the right and left are optional, and you can cross them to face off against tamers. Along with an additional fight, you will also find a few items here that can be helpful in the upcoming fight.

When crossing the river, you need to make sure that you don’t hit the edges. Doing so will send you back to the shore and you’ll need to start all over again.

The puzzle is about timing, rather then an actual challenge. You need to keep on jumping rafts until you get to the other side and make your way to the Dojo.

Against Tateru, you should use any Mental Temtem. Being Neutral, Tateru is weak to Mental Temtems and take much higher damage from mental Temtems.

How to defeat Rawiri in Temtem Mokupuni Dojo

Your best choice for Temtem for the fight against Rawiri is Kalabyss. For this, you need to catch Kalazu and then evolve them into Kalabyss. Kalabyss is a Water and Toxic type Temtem and will grant you a huge advantage over the opponent Temtems.

Taifu will be your first major issue, as the Allergic Spread move will damage both of your Temtems. Taifu is also at a high level and has high HP and defense, so you need to focus fire on Taifu to make sure he is out of the fight as early as possible.

Next, after you are done with Taifu, your next biggest issue will be the move Ember. The move is used by Banapi and Raize in the fight, and this move will cause the attacked Temtem to burn for the next move as well.

This, along with depleting your Temtem’s HP, will also reduce the attack of the affected Temtem significantly. Along with Taifu, these two Temtems, Banapi and Raize are high-priority targets to be taken out quickly.

Other than this, the rest of the fight will be quite uneventful, and the remaining three of Rawiri’s Temtems are easy to defeat in the fight. Defeating Rawiri gets you 720 Pansuns as a reward, as well as the Elevator key that you can use to proceed to the next region in the game
