Zygarde is one of the interesting Pokemon in the franchise. It’s because this Pokemon has different forms that are dependent on the collectibles. That’s right, collectibles — about a hundred of them in fact. Though that may sound tedious, it becomes a little bit easier once you know where to look. And that’s what we’re going to show you in this Pokemon Sun and Moon guide.
The Alola region contains 95 Zygarde cells and 5 Zygarde cores. That totals to 100 Zygarde components that players will have to collect to get the Zygarde Complete Forme.

Pokemon Sun and Moon Guide: Zygarde Cores
As previously mentioned there are five Zygarde cores within the game. And each core will teach Zygarde a new move.
|Melemele Island||Route 1||Extreme Speed|
|Melemele Island||Iki Town||Thousand Arrows|
|Akala Island||Konikoni City||Dragon Dance|
|Ula’ula Island||Route 17||Thousand Waves|
|Poni Island||Ancient Poni Path||Core Enforcer|
Pokemon Sun and Moon Guide: Zygarde Cells
Unlike the cores, the cells don’t really have any special effects on the Pokemon. Instead, a certain number of them are required in order to access the different Formes.
Ten cells will allow access to the 10% Forme, 50 cells for the 50% Forme, and all the cells for the Complete Forme. Note that some cells only appear in the day and others only in the night.

And that marks all of the cells and cores in the game. Once again, it may seem daunting at first given just how many things there are to collect, but it’s made a bit more trivial now that you know where they actually are.
For the most part, you can continue playing the game as normal. Just make sure to pay attention to where you are at all times. If that location is listed here, then you know you should start looking.
If this guide still isn’t enough, Serebii has a more detailed guide on their site along with visual aid.
