The 11 rarest Pokémon to get on Pokémon Legends Arceus

The 11 rarest Pokémon to get on Pokémon Legends Arceus

Having trouble capturing certain creatures on the newly released Pokémon Legends Arceus? You are probably not alone since a dozen Pokémon have a very rare appearance rate.

To 100% complete your Pokédex on Pokémon Legends Arceus, you will need to capture all of Hisui's Pocket Monsters at least once. With a total of 242 Pokémon , some will give you a hard time as their appearance rate is low or the way to obtain them is complex. You will see that in this list, most of the rare creatures are the famous "babies".

1. Fossils

Have you ever come across Shieldon or Kranidos when you have more than thirty hours of play? Don't worry, it's normal. If you don't have to find Fossils to have expertise in this version, the two dinosaurs are only accessible by one means: Space-Time Distortions. And, you may have noticed, these faults are particularly rare! Especially since it is impossible to force their appearance, it is random

2. Magnemite and Porygon

Here are two more beautiful specimens that can only be found in Distortions ! Magneti is only available in the Rifts of the Lazuli Coast while Porygon will find refuge in the Rifts of Crimson Swamp.

3. Bonsly

Hidden among all the evolved versions, the small Japanese bonsai is so tiny that it is sometimes difficult to see it (added to that its very low spawn rate of course).

4. Cleffa

Here is a specimen even smaller than Bonsly! This baby Pokémon will be hidden at the Fairy Spring, at Night only.

5. Munchlax

If the place where Munchlax appears is known to al, it is nonetheless difficult to find. Often hidden in a very specific place (under an isolated tree for example), you will surely need several explorations to find it.

6. Magby

The last hard-to-find baby is Magby, since he only appears in one place on the map: on Spitfire Island. We could also have told you about Togepi, Ptiravi or Pichu, but the latter have many more places of appearance than the others.

7. Cherubi and Cherrim

In addition to having a very low spawn rate in treesthese pokémons also have a very low capture rate , so much so that it becomes difficult to capture them. A single Ball will not be enough and you will often have to use the Hypnosis or Paralysis ability to catch them. Congratulations to all those who find one of these two shiny creatures!

8. Basculin

Bargantua's spawn rate isn't that low. The problem is that it is a fleeing Pokémon which, as soon as it sees you, will take its fins around its neck. Since it is particularly difficult to launch Balls from the back of Paragruel, on the water, you will certainly miss your target several times before capturing it. To make it evolve into Paragruel, it will also be necessary to use an attack causing recoil damage like Damocles for example.

9. New Pokemons

Although their sub-evolutions are not difficult to find, the 9 new Pokémon (including two with two different forms) of LPA are, for the most part, complicated to evolve precisely. Sometimes you will have to find rare objects like the Peat Block or the Obsidian, sometimes you will have to use the Quick Style or the Powerful Style on very specific attacks.

10. Rotom and its forms

Its capture is not difficult but if you want to obtain all its forms, you will have to farm the money thoroughly. Indeed, the objects allowing to transform it into a mower, washing machine or oven (and therefore change its type) are only available for sale from the Ginkgo Merchant. The latter will sell them very expensive: 20,000 Pokédollars to start with, then 40,000, then 60,000 and so on.

11. Spiritomb

In reality, Spiritomb is very easy to find. The problem is that you will first have to collect the 107 Strange Flames scattered in the Hisui region before you can meet him. In short, it is clearly not a Pokémon that you can put in your team at the start of the adventure and you will have to wait, at least, to have unlocked all the areas of the game to look for the famous purple wisps.
