How to Catch Cresselia

Cresselia is a Legendary psychic Pokemon in Pokemon BDSP and you can find it roaming around Sinnoh. To capture it, you first need to complete a quest.

Head to Canalave City and enter the Sailor’s home near the bottom left side of the town.

Once you enter the house, the quest will be triggered, and then all you need to do is go outside and talk to the Sailor, standing near the docks. You need to bring a Lunar Feather from Full Moon Island.

Once you reach the island, roam around until you come across a Cresselia and it will run away immediately, dropping a Lunar Feather behind.

Take the feather back to the sailor and go back to his house to finish the quest.

After finishing the quest, you will be able to track Cresselia from your Pokedex as it roams around Sinnoh.

To capture it, you have to track it down, interact with it, and then defeat it in battle.
