Today, the Pokémon Company International introduced Pecharunt, the Subjugation Pokémon. This newly discovered Mythical Pokémon can now be encountered in The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC for the Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet games.
Claim a Mythical Pecha Berry and Head to the Land of Kitakami
The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero epilogue is available to play now. To play it, you will first need to complete a certain postgame event in your Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet game, as well as complete the stories of Part 1: The Teal Mask and Part 2: The Indigo Disk. You will also need to claim a Mythical Pecha Berry via Mystery Gift* in your Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet game. Once you’ve received your gift, head to Mossui Town in the land of Kitakami and drop by Peachy’s – the alluring aroma of your Mythical Pecha Berry might cause something special to happen…
What appeared to be a mere shop decoration was actually Pecharunt – dormant, but patiently waiting to be reawakened.
This Pokémon rolls up poison secreted from its shell to make Binding Mochi, which it serves to people and Pokémon. Pecharunt then uses chains to control those who eat its Binding Mochi, which is not only delicious but also appears to draw out the deepest desires and latent powers of those who eat it. Pecharunt can also be very sly. For example, it will feign weakness by weeping and acting like a baby to gain the sympathy of others.
There is a theory that long ago, Pecharunt travelled to the land of Kitakami together with the Loyal Three, each of whom it had subjugated using its Binding Mochi – all to obtain certain masks coveted by an elderly couple who cared for Pecharunt.
Pecharunt found itself embroiled in battle with Ogerpon over the masks – ultimately resulting in Pecharunt’s defeat. It withdrew into its shell and, over time, became known to the locals as the Never-Rotting Peach.
