Pokémon Legends: Arceus - Tips & Tricks To Complete The Pokédex Fast

Completing the Pokédex in Pokémon Legends: Arceus has tons of benefits. There are tips and tricks that will help trainers clear the Dex faster.

Completing the Pokédex in Pokémon Legends: Arceus can be long and grind-y, but a few tips and tricks make the process go faster. This entry goes beyond just allowing trainers to complete their Pokédex by capturing Pokémon. Instead, each Pokémon has its own list of tasks for players to complete. These can consist of seeing the Pokémon use a certain move, feeding them, or the amount of Pokémon the player has defeated. The Pokédex is broken into three different tiers, each with its own rewards.

A Pokémon’s research level is broken between level 1, level 10, and research perfect. Level 1 is right when the player captures the Pokémon or completes a single task within its list. If trainers can get to research level 10, there is an increased chance of running into the Shiny version of that Pokémon. Lastly, Pokémon reaching level 25 will further increase its Shiny odds of appearing. In order to unlock the Shiny Charm in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, players will need to have at least research level 10 for every Pokémon in the game.

It’s important to mention that this is a time-consuming process no matter how the player attempts it. Attempting to reach research level 10 for over 200 Pokémon is a tall order. Although, there are a few ways to make that time go by faster. For starters, players should sort out their Pokémon in their Pastures. The Pokédex has a feature that allows it to ‘sort by research level.’ Open this up and place the first six Pokémon in the party.

Complete The Red Arrows First: Certain tasks will have red arrows pointing directly next to them. This means that completing this challenge will reward players with double the research level. Focus on clearing these out first to make the process go faster.Combining Moves and Styles: Players can choose between Agile and Strong Styles after mastering a move. Certain Pokémon will require trainers to use their moves a handful of times while also requiring the Pokémon to use either Agile or Strong style moves. For example, Gardevoir will need to use Dazzling Gleam and Agile Moves for separate tasks. Using them at the same time will cut down tons of time.Obsidian Fieldlands: When grinding out research levels, head to this location to make it easier. The wild Pokémon have lower levels, making them easy to take out. Perfect for completing research tasks.

After completing the Pokédex and obtaining the Shiny Charm, it will be easier to encounter Shiny Pokémon. Pokémon Legends: Arceus already has a handful of high-quality Shiny Hunting methods. The Shiny Charm adds to this, making the odds better than ever before. Combine this with the Pokémon Legends: Arceus’ Mass Outbreak system, and it might be possible to get Shiny versions of every Pokémon. The Hisui region has become a Shiny Hunters best friend because of this.
