For the item 'Pearl', see the official article: Pearl


1 - DomZ Lighthouse Monster: This one isn't too tough. It will appear
upon your defeating the first boss in the game, after whom the pearl is
named. Simply approach it and touch it to take it.

2 - DomZ Sea Serpent: This is won from the boss you fight after going to
Mammago's for the first time, which attacks while you are in the
hovercraft. Upon killing it, the pearl will be floating where it last
stood (or floated, in this case).

3 - Looter's Booty: This one you actually have to go out of your way to
get. There are two beaches in the beginning area of the world (the water
body which contains the lighthouse, Mammago's, etc.). The one we are
interested in is the larger one. You have to drive up on the beach and
enter the cave there. If you progress slowly forward, a looter will steal
100 units from you. Then the chase begins. Hold down R2 for your turbo
the entire time, and avoid anything red. If you are fast enough, and
don't die in the process, you will come out in a small area whice shiny pearl.

4 - Science Center-Film of Animals 2: Finish your second roll of film, and
this pearl will be your reward. Not too bad, eh?

5 - Victory in the Disc Game: This pearl is found by defeating the shark
in the Akuda bar at his game. He's on the first floor of the bar,
bouncing his little discs around, and he has his lucky pearl on his hat.
Talk to him until you have exhausted all the options, and he will let you
play. Bet 1000 against the pearl, and try as hard as you can to get all
the discs over on his side. I find this infuriatingly difficult, but who
who knows, maybe you will have better luck.

6 - Rufus's Booty: This one is in the Akuda bar in the Pedestrian District. You will find Rufus, the shark sitting at a table with Seven. On the table they are at is a code (letter-number-letter-number), but he will cover it up as you approach. Go upstairs and use your camera to zoom in on the code, when you figured it out go to Room 2 of the bar and enter the code. There is a
locker in there, which, when opened, will reveal a pearl. There are also
some other fun things in the room (namely three boosts), so pick up

7 - Science Center-Film of Animals 3: Finish your third roll of film for
this one (sensing a pattern yet?).

8 - Race 1 Victory: The racetrack can be found by entering the Main Canal
and heading to the left side of the map (straight across from the
Pedestrian District). You can participate in one race here at the start.
Enter race one, and listen to the scary hardcore music as you turbo your
way to an easy victory (hold R2). A pearl is your reward.

9 - Race 2 Victory: After completing race one, enter the arch for race
two. This race is a bit tougher, but you should still be able to handle
it with your handy R2 button. Great music here, some speedy Latin type

10 - Domz Pterolimax: To obtain this pearl, you must, guess what, defeat
a boss. At the end of the abandoned mine in Black Isle, you will fight
a very hip boss whose defeat will win you a pearl.

11 - Science Center-Film of Animals 4: You know the drill. More pictures
of animals, more pearls.

12- Pearl Crochax: This involves the second beach in the main area, the
small one. Pey'j needs to have gotten his tool from Black Isle before you
can access it. Drive onto this beach, and enter the Vorax Lair. This is
a subquest that is not part of the plot, so make sure you remember it.
Finish the subquest for a pearl (a Crochax will be flying around with a
pearl; just make like an action movie star and beat it out of him).

13 - Taken back from Alpha Sections: In the Akuda bar in the Pedestrian
District, head upstairs and through the first door you see. There is a
goat-person here. Talking to him will result in him giving you a code.
Head to fountain square, the part of the Pedestrian District blocked off
by the Alpha Sections. Walk around until you see a locked door. You can
open it with the key you get in the factory. Inside, there are some
boxes of materia crystals, and a locked box with a pearl in it. Use the
code you received from the goat to open it.

14 - Bought from Nouri: There is a merchant named Nouri in the Pedestrian
District who will sell this and pearl 46 to you. You can buy them as soon
as you first go to the Pedestrian District, you don't need the City Pass.

15 - Bought from Ming-Tzu: Ming-Tzu has a shop in the Pedestrian District
at which you can buy many cool things, among them pearl 15 and pearl 47.
You need the City Pass to get to his shop. I also would pick up the Pearl
and Animal detectors there to help you get the rest of the pearls.

16 - Taken Back from the Alpha Sections: In the Pedestrian District, there
is a place called Transit. Access a puzzle by moving a locker to the
left. Complete the puzzle to find the pearl.

17 - Science Center-Film of Animals 5: You know what to do.

18 - Looter's Booty 2: This little subquest can be found by trying to
enter the right hand arch going towards the top of the map from the main
area. A sentry drone will try to stop you, but your handy-dandy cannon
which can be bought from Mammago's for 5 pearls will take care of it.
Just hold X until it locks on, and watch the fireworks. Then zoom on past
him to the next screen. The beach here conceals a cave which in turn
conceals another looter out to snag 100 or so of your units. Chase him
down and engage in aggressive negotiations until he relinquishes a pearl.

19 - Taken Back from the Alpha Sections: This pearl is in the factory.
Find the area of the third floor called the Laboratory. (Go from the
elevator room through the door marked "Laboratory" to the west wing, and
then down the passage, not through the elevator, to the laboratory).
Here, push the cylinders to the outsides of the two ends of the electric
fence. This will divert the electricity, allowing you to pass through.
In this room is a locker containing the pearl.

20 - Domz Robot at the Factory: Defeat the final boss of the factory,
which is found in the Loading Dock, and it will leave this pearl in your

21 - DomZ Torture Machine: Lovely name, non? This pearl appears in the
natural progress of the plotline. When you rescue Double H from the nasty
little cylinder he is floating in by nailing the funky DomZ cooking his
brain with a few gyrodiscs, you will most likely notice the big pearl
floating in the cylinder. A little bit of logical thought should help you
figure out what to do with it.

22 - Reaper: This pearl confuses many people. When you defeat the Reaper
in the factory, the pearl does not, as you might suspect, just hang out
and wait for you in a convenient place, but instead falls into the water.
Luckily, Hyllian pearls are a bit different than our version in that they
float. So head back to your hovercraft, and enter the tunnel directly
across from the dock, not the one leading outside, and you will find
yourself in the Elevator Room, but at water level. You will automatically
snag the pearl.

23 to 27 - Hillyans' Donations: All obtained from
IRIS. You get them upon returning to IRIS Den after your factory mission,
where a room has been filled with pearls. Just take the one in the center
to take all of these pearls.

28 - Science Center-Film of Animals 6: Do I really need to explain this?

29 to 38 - Taken Back from the Alpha Sections: behind the
laser barrier with the star key lock, across from the fountain in the
Pedestrian District. The star key is given to you by the governor after
finishing The SlaughterHouse.

39 to 41 -Taken Back from the Alpha Sections: they are found in
the Alpha Seections Underground, located in a cave outside the city. You
need the Neutralizing blaster for the hovercraft to get past the guard.

42 to 44 - Alpha Sections' HQ: This can be accessed in the
Pedestrian District. There is a barred door which Double H can break

45 - Victory in Disc Game: This pearl becomes available after you finish
the Slaughterhouse. Win it the same way you won Pearl 5.

46 - Bought from Nouri 2: Buy this for about 3000 units from Nouri in the
pedestrian district. It can be bought at the same time you buy pearl 14.

47 - Bought from Ming-Tzu 2: Buy this for about 3000 units from Ming-Tzu
in the pedestrian district. It can be bought at the same time you buy
pearl 15.

48 - Taken Back from the Alpha Sections: In the main path of the

49 - Looter's Booty 3: After you purchase the Jump Kit from Mammago's,
use your turbo to go towards the red fence near the lighthouse. Use
square to jump over the fence (wait until you are very close). Once you
are over, turn around and look for a beach on one of the islands connected
to the fence (When you are facing the fence, it is to the right of the
lighthouse). Once you ahave entered the cave on this beach, just chase
the looter through his little run and then shoot him until he gives up a

50 - DomZ Sea Serpent: This serpent attacks after the Slaughterhouse

51 - Looter's Booty 4: Use the Jump Kit from Mammago's to jump over the
fence near the lighthouse, and head off forward and slightly to the right.
You should eventually come to an island with a beach (the Pearl Detector
can be helpful here). Enter the cave on the beach and chase down the
looter as usual.

52 - Taken Back from the Alpha Sections: In the main path of the

53 to 64 - Hillyans' Donations: Given to you by IRIS after you
finish the Slaughterhouse mission.

65 - Taken Back from the Alpha Sections: Enter the Main Canal from the
main area, and then take the first left. You will come to a red laser
fence. Jump this fence with the Jump Kit from Mammago's. Move around
this area until you find a box floating in the water. Shoot it a few
times to reveal the pearl.

66 - Bought from Ming-Tzu: Buy this from Ming-Tzu in the Pedestrian

67 to 69 - Taken Back from the Alpha Sections: located behind the
door with the triangle lock, across the bridge from Akuda Bar. The
triangle key is at the Factory. Be sure to push the object blocking your path to the left, and not to the right, because that would effectively ruin your chances of getting this pearl.

70 - Taken Back from the Alpha Sections: in the main path of the

71 - Race 3 Victory: To get this, you must win the Slaughterhouse race 3.
Use the Jump Kit to jump over the red laser fence near the lighthouse, and
head straight forward to reach the races. You will probably need a few
boosts to win the race, but you might want to scout out the course the
first time and save you boosts for when you feel like you are going to

72 - Race 4 Victory: This race is in the same place as Race 3. It is also
not much harder, but you will have to use boosts.

73 - DomZ Sea Serpent: This serpent attacks after you get the beluga

74 to 88 - Volcano Crochax: After you get the spaceship, go to
the Volcano on top of Black Isle. Here, just kill each Pearl Crochax to
get its pearl.
