Where to Find (& Catch) Voltorb in Pokémon Legends Arceus

Where to Find (& Catch) Voltorb in Pokémon Legends Arceus

In Pokémon Legends Arceus, players can find Voltorb rolling around in the Coronet Highlands, and they can evolve it into Electrode using a Leaf Stone.

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, players may want to find and catch the newly introduced Hisuian Voltorb. This stylized variant on an original First Generation Pokémon is identifiable from its wooden base and reddish-brown top, resembling the shape of a Poké Ball. Both Voltorb and its evolved form, Electrode, are Grass-/Electric-type, an uncommon typing in the game, making it a valuable addition to a team.

To find Voltorb rolling around in the wild, players should travel to the Sacred Plaza in Coronet Highlands. This location is unlocked when players begin Request 11: The Timbre of the Fields in the main story. This location is also home to the main story fight with the Noble Electrode in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, but players will not be able to catch this boss Pokémon. For the best chance of finding a wild Voltorb, players should search Primeval Grotto, located up the Sonorous Path and near the Clamberclaw Cliffs, just before the Sacred Plaza.

In addition to roaming around the region, players may also find Voltorb hidden inside wooden boxes that they can break open. If players notice that one of the wooden boxes is shaking, they should send one of their Pokémon to investigate for a possible Hisuian Voltorb. Once players locate the distinct circular Pokémon, they can throw a berry to distract it. Once distracted, players can throw Poké Balls until they successfully catch them. This Pokémon is a fairly common spawn, so players should have plenty of opportunities to catch it.

Additionally, Hisuian Voltorb can appear as the featured Pokémon during a mass outbreak in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. The mass outbreak will cause many of the featured Pokémon to spawn at once during the timed event and significantly increase players’ chances of finding a shiny variant or searching for a specific nature. Unlike its standard form, shiny Voltorb is black on top instead of a reddish-brown. Once players have acquired a Voltorb, they will need a Leaf Stone to evolve into Hisuian Electrode.

Players have several options to find a Leaf Stone to complete the evolution. First, players can investigate the ore visibly sticking out of the ground, Tumblestone ores, by searching with their Pokémon. If the ore is sparkling, that indicates it contains a rare material, such as a potential Leaf Stone in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Additionally, players can purchase a Leaf Stone from the Trading Post in Jubilife Village for 1,000 Merit Points. Unfortunately, players can only acquire Merit Points by returning Lost Satchels, which only average about 50 Merit Points per satchel.

Later in the game, players will also be rewarded with a Leaf Stone by completing “Request #73, the Real Burmy.” Finally, players can search hidden in piles of leaves in the Cobalt Coastlands or Crimson Mireland, and they can also search Space-time Distortions for an evolutionary stone. Once acquired, players can use the Leaf Stone on Hisuian Voltorb to complete the evolution in Pokémon Legends: Arceus to Electrode, they will notice that its colors are reversed, with the wooden texture on top and the reddish-brown color on the bottom.
