Request 59 'Misdreavus the Hairstyle Muse' and Misdreavus locations in Pokémon Legends Arceus explained

Help Arezu find hairstyle inspiration!

Misdreavus the Hairstyle Muse is one of the requests available in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

It's Request 59, and requires you to track down Misdreavus, a ghost-type Pokémon, for the hairstylist Arezu. Completing the request will earn you new hairstyles at the hairdressers.

First, however, you need to know Misdreavus' location.

How to complete Request 59 Misdreavus the Hairstyle Muse in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

In order to receive this request you will need to have found Arezu in the Crimson Mirelands. This is achieved as part of the main mission Arezu's Predicament. Completing this mission and quelling Lilligant will cause Arezu to return to Jubilife Village and become the hairstylist's assistant. This will automatically expand the range of hairstyles available.

However, in order to unlock yet more hairstyles and colour options for your character, you will need to complete requests for Arezu. She will ask to see certain Pokémon for inspiration. The first of these is Misdreavus.

Speak to Arezu outside the hair salon (the third building on the south side of the main street in Jubilife) to obtain the request.

Our Pokémon Legends Arceus walkthrough will help you pick a starter Pokémon and win the Kleavor boss fight. You’re also tasked with filling the Hisui Pokédex by obtaining new evolutions like Kleavor by evolving Scyther, Wyrdeer by evolving Stantler, Sneasler by evolving Hisui Sneasel and Overquil by evolving Hisui Qwilfish. There’s a host of new evolution methods, including ones for the Eevee evolutions. Take the time to complete Requests too, such as The Sea’s Legend, Wurmple’s Evolved! and finding the Wisp locations. Don’t forget to track down every Unown location too.

Misdreavus location in Pokémon Legends: Arceus explained

Once you've agreed to help, you'll need to track down a Misdreavus. These are ghost-type Pokémon with stylish pink tips to their 'hair' - if you can count it as such. They can be found in several locations. However, like many ghost Pokémon, they can only be found at night.

They are most prevalent in the Coronet Highlands, where they can be found in the Stonetooth Rows, Sacred Plaza, and Celestica Ruins. Fast travelling to the Summit Camp will put you close to these areas.

They can also be found in the Bonechill Wastes in the Alabaster Icelands. If you can't spot any above ground, try in the underground ice caves, which can be accessed by dropping down the big holes in the area. They seemed to reliably spawn in this area, particularly in the large round cavern off the central corridor.

The position can be seen on the map below, but remember, it is underground.

Because Misdreavus only appears at night, they can be a bit hard to spot due to their dark colouring, especially against the dark ground in the Coronet Highlands. They are also skittish and will flee if they spot you, so it may be worth moving slowly through long grass or other cover until you can locate one and get close enough to throw a Poké Ball at it.

You can also battle them by attacking from behind, which will stun them for one or two turns, usually long enough to capture them.

Once you've managed to catch one, simply return to Arezu at the hair salon and let her see it to unlock new hairstyles and colours.
