CREATING a diverse and useful team is paramount to success in any Pokémon game, and these are the top Pokémon Legends: Arceus tips.
Although Pokémon Legends: Arceus Not going through as many grueling battles as other games, you need a diverse range of Pokémon to beat the creatures that are particularly difficult to catch.
Whatever type you choose to use, you want the best of the best, so we’ve gone through the entire Pokédex and found the best choices for each of the 18 types.
Some are obviously strong contenders, while others are ones you might not have considered.
Oh, and Legendary Pokemon are banned because picking them is cheating.
Fly – Staraptor
If you’re looking for a bird then you can’t go wrong with Staraptor.
You can catch a Starly almost instantly in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, and it has a brilliant, diverse move pool.
It can blast a hole in anything with Brave Bird or destroy it with Close Combat.
Ice – Weavile
You might not even have realized that you can get Weavile in this game since Hisuian Sneasel evolves into the new Pokémon Sneasler.
However, in time-space distortions, you can find a normal Sneasel that evolves into this Ice-type powerhouse.
Granted, it can’t take a lot of hits, but it deals more than enough damage to make up for it.
Dragon – Garchomp
Don’t get in the way of that terrible land shark.
You have regular Arcanine, a Pokemon that is both fearsome and lovable at the same time.
So what are you doing to make the Hisuian form even better? That’s right, you make it fluffier.
Why more fluff makes it a Rock type is unclear, but we’ll overlook that since it successfully converted all of its Firepower (not Firepower…though, come to think of it, that too) into Rock Power.
Ground – Garchomp
No, it wasn’t a mistake that we used Garchomp twice. Garchomp is just that good. If you have any complaints, I suggest you take that up with its huge teeth and spiky knees.
Steel – Empoleon
Penguin. Cheap penguin. Good.
Fairy – Clefable
Hisui is full of great Fairy-type options, and in any other region, a Pokemon like Gardevoir or Togekiss might have taken that spot.
But with Pokémon Legends: Arceus’ unique combat mechanics, Clefable has become an impenetrable wall for all but the strongest Steel-types.
Poison – Krobat
Imagine a normal bat. Now imagine if someone gifted him an extra pair of wings and poison-tipped knives to them all. That’s why Crobat is great. Also, it only evolves if you have enough friendship with it, meaning it knows what it’s worth and forces you to earn its power.
error – shear
It’s very tempting to evolve a Scyther into the new Pokémon Kleavor, but don’t lose sight of what we already have.
Scizor is fast, powerful, and surprisingly bulky as long as you don’t put it in the fire’s path.
Normal – Hisuian Zoroark
This Hisuian form takes Zoroark’s cool black and red design and somehow turns it into an even cooler white and red combo.
Also, Normal/Ghost is a brilliant type that grants three immunities and only one weakness. It will wreak havoc on any battlefield.
Fight – Lucario
It’s a big dog with spikes on its hands, what more could you ask for?
Dark – Umbreon
In truth, most of this list could be filled with Eevee and his Eeveelutions, but we only picked one in fairness, and it had to be Umbreon.
Despite its small and slender stature, it will shock you at how well it can take a beating.
It’s not the biggest damage dealer, but it does have access to a wide range of stalling moves to keep you in the fight forever.
Spirit – Gengar
Mismagius was a close contender for this slot, but Gengar is a classic Pokemon and we can’t deny its brilliance. It might be a bit of a glass cannon, but what’s the point of a Pokemon as strong as Gengar if you can’t have fun?
Psychic – Alakazam
The Lake Guardians wish they could be that powerful. With super strength through the roof, speed to match, and access to tons of support moves, no other Psychic-type comes close.
And when it gives you one of its spoons, anything you eat with it tastes delicious, so why would you ever want another Pokémon?
Electrical – Magnezone
Luxray may beat it in terms of looks, but Luxray can’t outfit 12 different types like Magnezone can.
It’s not just a tank either, with moves like Thunder and Flash Cannon up its sleeve, it won’t stand in its way for long.
Grass – Roserade
Aside from Rowlet as a starter, there aren’t many options for turf fans in Hisui, but old trusty Roserade is there to fill the gap.
It has a great Special Attack stat that helps with moves like Sludge Bomb and Petal Dance, and its bouquet hands hide poisonous tendrils, which is neat.
Fire – Infernape
Insanely powerful moves? Check. Fire instead of hair? Check. Ape? Check.
Water – Gyarados
If Gyarados is in a Pokemon game then it is one of the best Pokemon you can catch in that game. As simple as that.
It looks amazing, has incredible power and everyone always forgets it’s a flying guy so you have to smugly correct them. There are no downsides.
