All Bottles will automatically level up whenever you obtain a new one.

In order to obtain all five Travel Bottles, you must have completed the main story. The fifth and final Bottle requires a clear save file.

Where to Find the Travel Bottles

The first Travel Bottle is a main story item, while the other four will require you to find them.

Travel Bottle: Sun

You will obtain the Travel Bottle: Sun at the Cathedral Garden. It is an unmissable item, and mandatory for the main story’s completion.

As soon as you arrive at Cathedral Garden, head over to the hall on the right side.

The battle starts as soon as you approach her. Although the Great Dark Element doesn’t hit particularly hard, she does have a sizable HP pool. You may need to heal through her damage at least once.

Once you defeat the Great Dark Element, you will receive the fifth Bottle.

The Great Dark Element won’t respawn after that. Once you get all five Travel Bottles, you will be able to challenge her again by entering the password G162.

You can also challenge the Queen of Shadows, the strongest boss in the base game, with the password WSCG.

Leveling Up the Travel Bottles

As mentioned earlier, all Travel Bottles level up whenever you get a new one. 

The Travel Bottles’ level is determined by the number of bottles you own:

  • One Bottle: level 20.
  • Two Bottles: level 30.
  • Three Bottles: level 40.
  • Four Bottles: level 50.
  • Five Bottles: level 200.

Although you can synthesize worlds that exceed the Bottles’ level, you won’t be able to restock them. Once you have all five Travel Bottles, you will be able to freely explore any world, regardless of its level.
