7:42 The Final Empty Bottle =D

Ghost Shop
 - Right after beating the Forest Temple, you can go get the last bottle. The things you need are the Fairy Bow and Epona. If you don't have the latter, either check out our Epona Quest section or go to the Biggoron Sword Quest section.

 - On your way leaving the ruins of Hyrule Town is the old guardhouse, which has been since changed into the Poe Shop. This gangly, one eyed, hooded figure with a stick loves the spirits formed from the hatred in the world known as Poes. He'll buy smaller ones that you bring him in bottles for a few Rupees. There are ten large ones scattered throughout Hyrule Field though, and if you catch all of them for him, he'll give you a little prize.

 - First let me explain that they only appear when you walk over certain spots. It's generally just a ring on the ground that once you enter, the Big Poes will appear (in front of where you're facing). By running through these invisible rings on Epona, you can whip out your Fairy Bow and shoot them as they run away from you. Two hits and they'll fall down. Speak with them to put them in a bottle. You'll have to bring them back to the Poe Shop repeatedly, seeing as you only have a few bottles, as obnoxious as that is.

Big Poe Locations

 - Right at the entrance to the ruined bridge leading to what remains of Hyrule Town is a sign. Passing by it will cause the Poe to appear.
 - At the entrance to Lon Lon Ranch is a tree. Pass by it (in particular between it and the wall) to make the Poe appear.
 - In the northwest (top left) corner of Hyrule Field are tons of little black bushes next to a stream. One of the triggering locations for the Poe is atop one of them. Find it, then run through it when you're ready.
 - Between Lon Lon Ranch and the entrance to the Gerudo Valley area is a tree all by itself. I find it easiest to face towards Hyrule Castle and run along the right side of the tree.
 - Near the entrance to Gerudo Valley, where the road forks right before the ground color changes, stand on the ground between the road and the wall (right side). The easiest way to catch this one is to face right and try to get him to pass through the hole there. By far, the most frustrating one.
 - In the south part of Hyrule Field, between Lake Hylia and Kokiri Forest are tons of trees. Find the patch of bushes and run through them to make this Poe appear.
 - In the same spot, there's a regular brown boulder waiting all by its lonesome. The triggering spot to make the Poe appear is the tree directly south of it. I suggest facing towards Lon Lon Ranch and running north, along the tree's right side.
 - Along the road between Kokiri Forest and Lon Lon Ranch is a silver boulder. Stand at the top, inside of the "Y" shape of the road next to the boulder to make it appear.
 - Wait in the corner of the "V" shaped wall to the east of Lon Lon Ranch. You can either stand on top of it and wait or run along side it below.
 - Near the entrance to Kakariko Village, there's an overhang above the stream. It's just this general area that makes it appear, so you can either wait on top or run through the pillar supporting it alongside the stream. I find it easier up top.


 - For each Big Poe you turn in, you'll get a snazzy 50 Rupees, which is pretty much worthless in this game. There's nothing big to save up your money for in the long run other than refilling your quiver or buying back tunics if you don't kill a Like Like fast enough. Anyway, after you've turned in all ten, the Ghost Shop Owner will ecstatically ramble before giving you the long awaited bottle. Doesn't it feel good to have them all?
New Item:
      Empty Bottle #4
Ghost Shop
The last of the four bottles, use it to hold things like Fairies and Green Potion. It'll come in handy for the bosses ahead.
