This guide should work as help for any of the 8 Meloetta tile puzzles encountered throughout Pokemon Insurgence. It is organized in order of when the puzzles could first feasibly be encountered during gameplay.
Keep in mind that this guide is not 100% perfect. If you’re having lots of trouble with a puzzle, I recommend resetting the puzzle.
This is the final result of all Meloetta puzzles. It will be referenced later.
Some of the guides to these puzzles use numbered guides. This means that each tile in its proper configuration is numbered 1-16, starting from the upper left corner and going row by row, as seen here. When a guide asks you to number tiles, it means to cross-reference their proper orientation from this image, and overlay that number on the tile’s location in your scrambled puzzle.
These are the individual puzzle guides, for the location and the puzzle guide:
1. Misty Way
Location: Surf directly east from the mainland to find the puzzle sitting on a small island.
Puzzle: 16 Tile Place
A fairly simple puzzle, just use the first picture at the start of the guide to figure out where each piece goes.
2. Koril Cave
Location: Surf across the water at the start of the cavern to find the puzzle.
Puzzle: Slide Puzzle (15 Tile Puzzle)
Follow this guide: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Solve-The-15-Puzzle/
3. Helios Sewers
Location (Requires Rock Smash and Strength): Starting from the Dept. Store, go left, up, and then take the lower left exit from that open area. Follow the path down, and then turn right to find a toxic pool. Cross this to find a fan leading upwards. Break the rock and push the boulder aside to gain access to the puzzle.
If starting from the Black Market, go left, and down as far as possible. Turn right to end up the toxic pool, and cross this to find a fan leading upwards. Break the rock and push the boulder aside to gain access to the puzzle.
Puzzle: Place + Rotate
First step to solving this puzzle is making sure all of the tiles are properly oriented. Tiles which are incorrectly rotated have a jagged edge if examined closely. Proper tiles have a straight edge.
Once all tiles are properly oriented, solve the puzzle as you would the puzzle from the Misty Way.
4. Whirl Islands
Location: Enter the southeasternmost cave of the Whirl Islands. Follow the ladder downwards. Work your way north and then as far west as possible until you find a ladder. Once you take the second ladder, the puzzle will be just a few tiles away.
Puzzle: Slide + Rotate
Rotate the tiles into their proper orientation by looking for jagged edges, indicating they are improperly rotated.
Once all tiles are properly oriented, solve the puzzle as you would the puzzle from Koril Cave.
5. Nasca Town
Location: Locate the Dive spot leading to the Power Farm in the northwestern pond in Nasca Town. Follow the route before surfacing in a small cave, where the tile puzzle is located.
Puzzle: 32 Tile Place
A more difficult version of the puzzle found on the Misty Way. Same guide applies, however note that the top halves of tiles have a light border along their tops, while the bottom halves of tiles have a dark border along their bottoms.
6. Fiery Caverns
Location: Descend to the second floor of the Caverns. Go northwards and cross the lava lake via the boulder from the first Fiery Caverns puzzle. Go east until you encounter a ramp, and follow it upwards and east until you find a ladder. Follow the ladder to find the puzzle.
7. Void Gauntlet
Location (requires Rock Climb): Follow the Void Gauntlet until you reach the Cave of Origin. Descend to the second level, where the tile puzzle will be in the middle of the cavern.
This is probably the hardest type of puzzle you’ll have to solve. Honestly, the easiest way to solve it is just reset until you get a puzzle that can be solved in just one or two moves. By this point, you should be familiar with the puzzle’s layout, and have some intuition as to which piece goes where.
However, if you wish to solve the first puzzle given, number each tile in the puzzle. Write out that list of numbers as raw data in a line and plug it into the following calculator under Input. Hit the play button at the top. From there, take the output string and follow those instructions to get the answer to the puzzle.
This data is given as a number and a letter. The number varies between 0-3 (as arrays start from 0), representing a row or column. The letter is U, D, L, or R, representing which way a row or column should be moved. As such, 2U means move the 3rd column upwards. (I recommend doing a find+replace to put the answer in the 1-4 column format.)
8. Holon Volcano
Location: Enter the volcano, and walk south past the Hiker. Find and enter the nearest cave entrance. Travel west past the scientist and head north to find the puzzle in the middle of a lava lake.
Puzzle: Slide Puzzle (15 Tile Puzzle)
Follow the guide for puzzle #2, Koril Cave.
Once you have all 8 Mysterious Scrolls, head to Route 5. Take the middle waterfall upwards and use Rock Climb to climb onto the ledge at the top of the route. Follow this and Rock Climb down to a cave entrance. From here, follow the path, opening the locks with the Scrolls. Eventually, you’ll encounter a Level 80 Meloetta, with the option to catch it. After the battle, you also gain access to the Quartz Flute ability, Relic Song.
The 1.2.5 Meloetta no longer has Perish Song, so no need to worry about it killing itself.
