Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Hide & Seek: Where to Find Mr. Walksabout for the Levincia Gym Test

Gyms in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet offer a slightly new twist on series traditions, where each gym's small puzzle-style tests are formalized as a Gym Test, with each one a unique little puzzle to solve. One of the cuter ones is the Hide & Seek Gym Test at Iono's Levincia Gym - which sees you having to track down a mysterious, slightly familiar chap going by the name of Mr. Walksabout. Because he walks about.

All of this is justified because Levincia Gym Leader Iono is a live-streamer - and she wants you to help her put on a show before she'll accept a challenge and battle you with her squad of electric-type Pokemon. Along the way you'll engage in some picture-hunt style Hide & Seek missions, plus some Pokemon battles. This guide will help you to breeze through the puzzles.

Hide & Seek Solutions: Where to find Mr. Walksabout for the Levincia Gym Test

Electric-type Gym Leader Iono has a Hide-and-Seek based Gym Test, one of the more unique Gym Gimmicks in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

In order to get to battle Live Streaming Gym boss Iono, you'll first need to participate in a game of Hide-and-Seek with Mr. Walksabout - who walks about - as your Gym Test.

This is pretty simple in action: Pokemon Scarlet & Violet will present you with a scene, and you have to use your Poke-magnifying glass to point out where Mr. Walksabout is hiding in the scene. It's literally just a Pokemon version of Where's Waldo - or Where's Wally, if you're not in North America. It's quite different to the other challenges, such as having to find the Secret Menu Item for Medali Gym.

Between each of these hide-and-seek puzzles, you'll need to battle one of Iono's trusted fans who hangs around her gym. They use Electric-type Pokemon. If you're following our Scarlet & Violet Gym order & progression guide, you'll already know that this Gym has a recommended level of around Level 21 and up - the strongest Pokemon you'll face, including from Iono herself, is Level 24. You can also use our Type Chart to help out, but the cliffnotes is that Electric is weak to Ground - so bring those earthy moves if you can. 

Here's the puzzle Solutions for the Hide & Seek Mr. Walksabout Gym Challenge:
