Some Sidequests are not implemented
Main Article: Legendary Pokémon
After becoming the Tandor Champion, you can obtain the Legendary Pokèmon Actan and Lanthan. These are the only two that you must catch in battle, as Garlikid is gained by completing its respective sidequest, Seikamater is obtained by using the Royal Jelly, and Urayne will join you at the Pokèmon Championship.
Actan can be obtained by using Waterfall beside the cave portion of Victory Road. Actan can only be caught after you become the Tandor Champion and obtain HM07 (Waterfall) from Cameron or by using the Climbing Pick, which is obtained from the Tinkerer in Legen Town after receiving HM07 Waterfall.
Lanthan can be obtained by entering Lanthanite Core from the Lanthanite cave portion on Route 16. Like Actan, Lanthan can only be reached by using HM07 (Waterfall) or the Climbing Pick. You can get to him by taking the next north intersection after exiting Lanthanite Cave from Snowbank Town and entering the cave there. From the entrance, just follow the path all the way up into another section of the cave and work your way north across the ice puzzle until you reach the waterfall.
Once you reach Lanthanite Core, you will be joined by an Elite Trainer who joins you until you fight Lanthan. He will heal you after every battle. Fight through several Acolytes, and once you reach the end, you will fight the Elite Trainer, and then Lanthan itself.
There are more Legendary Pokèmon to come in the next update, but these are all that are obtainable as of Release 1.0.1.

In the Wheatfields just east of Vinoville Town, you will find the home of a wheat farmer. If you visit during the day you'll find his daughter, Ripley, tired and sleep deprived; she will tell you to come back later.
If you visit Ripley during the night, she'll tell you about the strange crop circles that keep appearing in her family's wheat fields and ask for your help. If you agree to help her, she will reward you with a S51 after you uncover the mystery. This is the only way you can obtain one.

Main Article: Garlikid Sidequest
A multi-part sidequest that extends across both East and West Tandor, beginning in Rochfale Town and ending in Silverport Town. The second part of the sidequest in Silverport Town provides some additional hints towards the larger backstory and what may have happened to the hero's mother, Lucille. Completing this sidequest is the only way to capture Garlikid.
The first part of the sidequest starts by entering Professor Cypress' laboratory in Rochfale Town after speaking with Professor Bamb'o. Professor Cypress will give you her recent invention, the Pokémon Speech Translator (PST) and ask you to track down a thief who stole several Pokémon from the lab.
You must defeat Garlikid to continue the Sidequest. If you lose against him, you will not get an opportunity to meet him again and capture him later in the game.
Completion results in obtaining the Pokemon Garlikid
Once you have acquired Strength, enter Comet Cave from Route 5. Use Strength to push a boulder south; behind it you will find two fossils. After defeating a trainer, you will have a choice between the Hair Fossil or the Tusk Fossil. Take the fossil to Professor Cypress' Laboratory in Rochfale Town to revive either Slothohm or Snopach respectively.
Taking this fossil to Professor Cypress' Laboratory in Rochfale Town will allow you to revive Jungore.
Crying Boy Sidequest
Main Article: Crying Boy Sidequest
You will find a boy named Maury crying just outside of the Poké Mart in Kevlar Town. When you first visit, he tells you to just leave him alone, but if you revisit the town after receiving Strength from Kellyn in Legen Town, he'll finally decide to ask you for help.
The Dunsparce Gang, a local biker gang has stolen something from him and run off to the Passage Cave Grott-Hole, a small cave located to the west of the Pokemon Center.
After battling and defeating defeating three biker-class trainers you will find Maury's wallet. After taking it back to him at his house, he will tell you to leave: there is no reward for this quest.
The Punk Twins
After having beaten the Tandor Pokémon League, there's a small chance that upon booting up a PC, it will have glitched up letters and symbols in its text. Clicking on "Twitch's PC" will transport the player inside a digital world.
Once inside, you will have to play a version of Simon and win a few rounds to cause the light bridge to appear. Crossing the light bridge brings the player to the Punk Twins Praseopunk and Neopunk, who will engage the player in battle. They are both level 90.
Since this is a double battle, you will have to faint one in order to catch the other, and the event is locked out once either of them is caught. Fortunately, this can be remedied via breeding one of the twins or through GTS/Wonder Trade.
