How to evolve my starter pokemon? And how to find manaphy?
Top Voted Answer
You have to completely beat every main quest in the game. You gotta beat all the main storyline quests, then graduate from the guild, and you'll soon gain access to the Luminous Spring, where you can evolve Pokemon. However, your two starters won't be able to. You'll have to complete all the post-storyline main quests in order to gain the ability to evolve your starters.
Manaphy is part of the post-storyline main quests. You'll do a mission where you'll get a Manaphy egg and try to take care of him. Eventually you'll part ways, but he'll grow up and rejoin you later. Once that happens, he'll eventually discover Marine Resort for you, and you'll be done with the post-storyline missions and you can evolve. SmokeRulz (Expert) - 7 years ago
Just in case of other people reading, I'm gonna make a MAJOR SPOILERS warning.
================================ MAJOR SPOILERS ================================
Well the main storyline ended when you beat Primal Dialga and your main character died... of course, you came back after the credits, and now you're able to continue the game. This is the "post-storyline" portion of the game. It starts with the Guild graduation mission where you discover Luminous Spring, and then after that, you start getting new special missions every once in a while as you do normal missions, just like when you were playing the normal storyline. These are what I mean by "post-storyline" missions. These are a bunch of missions you do with your partner that take on a whole new storyline, leading into your main character's past. Eventually the storyline gets rather intense, but eventually you finish off a final-final boss of the game, and get the ability to evolve your main characters. SmokeRulz (Expert) - 7 years ago
After the main story line, you will have more missions. After Manaphy goes back to the ocean, you will do a bunch of quests and jobs before seeing him again. One day Chadot will come down and tell you Manaphy is back at the beach where he left. He will request to join you (say yes). You will have to do a few days of jobs, then ursering will tell you to go to the springs.
He will explain that the fog has lifted and that it feels different than last time.
At this point, you will be able to evolve your starter...

You also have to defeat Darkrai LuxrayLover - 6 years ago
After defeating Darkrai, you can recruit Cresselia. After that, do jobs for a few days, until you get a cutscene after leaving Sharpedo Bluff. Chatot will say that Manaphy is at the beach. Go there, and recruit as prompted. As for evolving, go back to the Spacial Rend (incorrect name?) and go fight Palkia. After defeating him, you'll have the choice to recruit him. Do that, then the next day, the two Ursarings will tell you something at Luminous Spring has changed. And now you can evolve. keybladehero15 - 4 years ago
