How to Catch Temtems in Water?

To catch Temtems living in the water, you first need a vessel that will allow you to set sail. As many of you have probably gathered by now, that’s where the surfboard comes into play. We’ve covered the subject in our Surfboard Location in Temtem guide, but here’s the basic gist. You have to push through the game’s main campaign until you face off against Sophia in her Dojo. Upon her defeat, you’ll obtain the Surfboard. With that in your arsenal, you can approach any large body of water, and the board will be summoned automatically, allowing you to travel on water.

So, what you have to do next is basically just sail (or, rather, surf) around the area until a wild Temtem attacks you. At that point, the game will switch to the battle screen, and the whole fight will take place on dry land. From that point on, everything happens exactly as it would in any regular encounter. Drop the health of the Temtem that you want to capture, then throw at Temcard at it when you’re ready to try to capture it.

One of the first Water Temtems that you might want to try and catch is Nessla. Being a Water / Electricity type Temtem, it can be a very valuable addition to your party. And, when you get the surfboard, you can then complete certain side quests that you might have picked up earlier, such as Gone With The Sillaro and Missing Kids.
