Pokemon Scarlet & Violet DLC: Lovey-Dovey Couple puzzle solution

How to find a Lovey-Dovey pokémon for the couple in The Teal Mask Pokémon DLC

The new Pokémon DLC is finally here, bringing us pokémon old and new, as well as a brand new story for us to dive into. It isn’t just the main path that will challenge you this time though, as there are also little puzzles and challenges dotted around the place that you can pick up along the way.

One such challenge can be found around the back of the Community Center in Mossui Town – the main town on Kitakami. There you will find a Lovey-Dovey Couple who want you to show them a Pokémon just as lovey-dovey as them. We’ll tell you what Pokémon they want to see and what rewards they’ll give you.

To solve this puzzle you need to show the couple a Tandemaus or Maushold. If you need to catch one, they can spawn rarely in the areas surrounding Mossui Town, but the most reliable place to get one is outside Paldea’s Pokémon League, where there are several guaranteed spawns.

Show them what they want to see and you’ll unlock two emotes where your character makes one half of a heart symbol – one leaning left, the other right. You can line these emotes up with other players to create a heart symbol when taking selfies.
