Pokémon Legends: Arceus lets you explore the ancient region of Hisui, and as a member of the Galaxy Expedition Team, you'll be tasked with researching all of the Pokémon living in the environment. As you complete research, you'll feedback to Professor Laventon, expand your Pokédex, and sooner or later, you'll have caught 'em all (hopefully).
As you explore Hisui, you'll need a helping hand here and there. This can be in the form of crafting items such as Poké Balls, purchasing new items from Gingko Guild merchants, or summoning a rideable Pokémon to help you traverse a tricky area.
The main way to prepare for battle is by crafting. You can use various items to help you on your journey in Pokémon Legends: Arceus and Potions are one of them. You can earn them as rewards for completing missions or quests and you can buy them at Base Camp. However, we're going to show you how to craft Potions.
How to Craft Potions
In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, one of the main ways that you can craft Potions is to collect materials while you are exploring different areas. A hub for gathering crafting materials is Obsidian Fieldlands. You can find materials by:
- Breaking Rocks
- Picking Up Plants
- Battling and Catching Pokémon
Once you have found various materials and collected them, you can return to Base Camp. At your camp, there will be a small workbench for you to go about crafting new items. Approach this and interact with it to see what recipes you have available and which ones you're able to craft, including Potions.
