You can find a yellow Shuca Berry (sweet) and a blue Yache Berry (sour) on trees outside of the ruins. There are trees that have the same colored fruit so make sure you get the right berries.

However, finding a red spicy Tamato Berry is more difficult. Go back to the campsite and talk to Chris. He’ll give you some spicy curry to substitute for the Tamato Berry

How to Place the Berries on the Ruins Statues

Once you have all three items, go back into the room with the three statues.

  • Place the yellow Sucha Berry on the left.
  • Place the blue Yache Berry on the right.
  • Place the Curry in the middle.

Once you place each item on the right statue the Aegislash will open, letting you progress. 

That’s the Ruins statue puzzle solution in Detective Pikachu Returns. The puzzle answer itself isn’t all that difficult to find, but getting the right items can be a chore. If you need help solving more puzzles or cases, check out our DPR guides hub.
