In the second case in Detective Pikachu Returns, The Fabled Aurora, the Quiz Professor has three more questions for you in the Southern Ruins. The first tasks you with tracking down a winged Pokemon with a round body and adorable eyes. Here’s how to find it in Detective Pikachu 2.

“What Winged Pokemon Has a Round Body and Adorable Eyes?” Answer in Detective Pikachu 2

While the National Pokedex is full of round cuties, meaning obvious Pokemon like Marill, Jigglypuff, or Spheal may come to mind, the answer is actually the Gen 7 Grass-type starter Pokemon Rowlet.

Note that just knowing the answer isn’t enough to satisfy the Quiz Professor, though. You need to actually find and interact with a Rowlet in the Southern Ruins before she’ll accept your answer. She’s a fussy one, that Quiz Professor.

Where to Find Rowlet in Detective Pikachu Returns

Rowlet is pretty simple to track down in the Southern Ruins, so it won’t take you long to find the round Pokemon if you know where to look. From the Quiz Professor’s position, head left and then go down the dirt hill. Continue left, past the Leavanny, where you’ll see a Rowlet perching on a rock by a Charjabug. I wonder what they’re chatting about?

Interact with the Rowlet, and Tim will comment that you’ve found an adequately round Pokemon with adorable eyes to match, meaning it must be the correct answer. Return to the Quiz Professor, and hand in your answer to pass the first question with flying colors.

With the first question out of the way, the Quiz Professor’s second question asks you to find a shocking Pokemon with a blocky body and impressive jaws – here’s where to find it in Detective Pikachu 2.
