Find the Harvest Sprites - once more!



Over 8 years ago, the Harvest sprite quest was released on PokéHeroes. Back then it was our very first quest (and thus the original introduction of the Ancient Cave), later followed by more more additions, like the Raylóng quest, Giratina, Reshiram & Zekrom, and so on.
There were, however, always three major problems with this quest:

1) Shiny Harvest Sprites were never obtainable as it's a non-repeatable one-time quest
2) Some of the tasks are extremely RNG-/luck-based (and we just love that, don't we)
3) Story-wise, some of the hiding spots are simply ridiculous, mainly because certain necessary features/places didn't exist back then (e.g. the harvest sprite claiming to have its own berrygarden can be found - you guessed it - in the.... item shop? yeah.)

All of these issues are now going to be addressed in this major overhaul of the Harvest sprite quest!




Uh... What's the Harvest Sprite Quest?


Quick reminder: The Harvest Sprites are dwarfs (a mix between Victini and the Harvest Sprites from the Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons videogame series) which you can find in their own little quest. This quest is started in the Ancient Cave. The Ancient Cave is unlocked on Trainerlevel 10.




New hiding spots


The hiding spots of (almost) all harvest sprites have changed. They are now much more skill-based and much less RNG-based.
First of, one thing hasn't changed: This quest is still not very comparable to the Easter egg event (or the Hoopa quest). You don't just browse around the site and randomly find them. Instead, you have to perform certain actions (multiple times) in order to find them. For example, you might have to do a certain amount of interactions. Or you might have to harvest a certain amount of berries. Who knows?

Would you like to know? Here is a SPOILER of the entire list of tasks you have to do in order to find all sprites:
Show hidden content

Chef: Cook 250 dishes (in your toolshed/berrygarden)


Nappy: Catch 25 Pokémon at the Honey tree. The next one you find at the honey tree will be Nappy himself.


Hoggy: Make 500,000 interactions in total.


Timid: Harvest a berry of Level 50 or higher.


Aqua: Adopt 1,000 eggs from the lab.


Staid: Catch 250 Pokémon at the beach (you don't have to adopt them)


Bold: Adopt 250 eggs from the Tall Grass.


Have you already met any of the criteria before this update but haven't received the Harvest Sprite in the past?
Simply perform the action required again, e.g. if the goal is 500k interactions, then do one more interaction.


You don't have to find them again if you already found them before the update. You can, however, now aim for their shiny version - which brings me to the second part of this overhaul:




Shiny Harvest Sprites


After finishing the Harvest Sprites quest for the first time (i.e. after the tea party), you can now restart the quest and play hide and seek with them again. On your second attempt, all sprite eggs you receive are shiny!
The tasks you have to do in order to find them in the second round, however, are much much harder. They're shinies, after all.

Would you like to know the tasks? Here is a SPOILER of the entire list of tasks you have to do in order to find all shiny sprites:
Show hidden content

Chef: Cook 10,000 dishes (in your toolshed/berrygarden)


Nappy: Catch 500 Pokémon at the Honey tree. The next one you find at the honey tree will be Nappy himself.


Hoggy: Make 10,000,000 interactions in total.


Timid: Have at least 10 different berries at Level 100.


Aqua: Adopt 50,000 eggs from the lab.


Staid: Catch 10,000 Pokémon at the beach (you don't have to adopt them)


Bold: Adopt 7,500 eggs from the Tall Grass.


Have you already met any of the criteria before this update but haven't received the Harvest Sprite in the past?
Simply perform the action required again, e.g. if the goal is 500k interactions, then do one more interaction.






FAQ


Q: Do my actions before (re-)starting the quest count? E.g. if I need to reach a certain amount of interactions, do my interactions made before count as well?
A: Yes! Technically you can reach the goals before even starting the quest, but you won't receive a Harvest Sprite for it until you start the quest. If the task is X interactions, and you already did X interactions before starting the quest, then just perform one more interactions so you trigger the code responsible for giving you the egg.

Q: Can I trade these Pokémon?
A: No, Harvest Sprites (Regular + Shiny) are trade-locked.

I gotta say, I love the clarification on how to obtain the harvest sprites. Those shiny ones are definitely one's I am going after now.

Thank you, Riako! I've been having a hard time finding the Honey Tree one, since of how luck-based it was, but now it will be much easier!

I guess Nappy was asleep for too long that they missed the memo? 😅

*currently clearing my phone's cached image after posting this*

I can't wait to "find" those shiny sprites~! 😁




I won the "Event Spriting Contest" as it says on News Announcement #224.

This is such a great update! And while the shiny tasks are so hardcore I love the challenge aspect even if I will suffer with some tasks 🥲 it makes them really rewarding and special without having to break your hands with interacting for e.g. sm cursed rapidash or the valentines event.
They/them pronouns please

Is there a way to see how many thing we achieved so far for each sprite? E.g. how many eggs we adopted from the lab so far.

Is this permanent?!!

I agree with Akemie. Can we get some kind of counters please. Only one which I know of is interactions, which can be seen on profile.

Sweet, time to hunt me some shinies. >:] ...I really gotta step up my game with some of those tasks if I don't feel like taking a decade to get them all though. xD

Yes I would love to have counters for progress too. But besides that, welcome back to the harvest sprites! Can't wait to get them again :D My first reaction was: Yeah, easy, I should be really close to already getting some of the shinies. Me after checking the spoilers: Oof, I might have been wrong there :'D

Riako, a couple small details:

The percentage should be fixed somehow:


If the shiny part of the quest is already started, what is that button for?? does it restart the quest??



Besides that, the fact of not being luck related is great!

Thank you for updating this riako!! I love the shiny sprites so ive always wanted one. Ty for giving me something to work for as well. Gives me more reason to use the other features that I don't normally use as well.

Can't wait to see our progress bars when it gets rolled out. That'll make this much easier lol.

Title: Old Harvest Sprites

Can you please tell us what you had to do to get the old Harvest Sprites because I am just curious? I guess I kind of lost interest in the harvest sprites a while ago but thank you for all your recent updates. I really enjoy this game thank you so much for all your hard work.
