How to complete Request 16 ‘Strange Happenings at Midnight’ in Pokémon Legends Arceus

Strange Happenings at Midnight is one of the early game requests that you can collect in Pokémon Legends Arceus.

To start Strange Happenings at Midnight, you need to head to Sanqua’s house, which you can find on Jubilife Village’s Canala Avenue. Specifically, it is located on the south side of the street, not far from the gate.

Once you have confirmed that you can help with her problem, you will need to return to the house at night, which is when the disturbances occur and because she is working during the day.

Inside the house, you must search through his possessions to find out what is going on.

For us, Strange Happenings at Midnight concluded once we took the following steps:

  1. Investigating the basket on the table at the back of the room, a “doorway noise” is seen.
  2. Looking under the cloth on the cabinet to the right of where you first entered, you hear “a noise from the back near the closets.”
  3. Checking the divider at the back left end of the room.

The steps may be random for each player. If so, investigate items throughout the house until there is a short cutscene where a noise is coming from somewhere else. Investigate that and the final step will lead you to the disturbance in question.

Either way, for us, we couldn’t physically investigate the divider at the back of the room until we’d completed the steps, so make sure you’ve followed the noises around the room if you’re stuck.

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

Please note that there are spoilers for the conclusion of Request 16: Strange Happenings in the Midnight.

Once you’ve followed the noises around the room, you’ll discover that the disturbance is none other than a Pichu that has decided to visit Sanqua.

After a short cutscene where you discover the relationship between the two, the Request will be completed.

Your reward? 7x Nanab Berry: which will be deposited in your bag or your storage, if there is no more space.
