In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, you'll find your character waking up on Hisui's coast, after having fallen out of the sky according to Professor Laventon. To pay your keep in Hisui, the Survey Corps will snap you up quickly and have you tasked with studying Pokémon across the region, with the goal of completing the all-new Pokédex.

As you commit to your research and take on Alpha Pokémon, Noble Pokémon, and befriend rideable Pokémon, you'll come across plenty of familiar 'mons. One of these is legendary Pokémon, Uxie, and oh boy, don't they have a treat for you in the form of an obscure riddle!

Uxie Eyes Puzzle Answer – How Many Are Their Eyes?

After finishing off much of the overarching story for Pokémon Legends: Arceus, you'll be tasked with finding the elusive legendary lake Pokémon around Hisui. These guys are better known as Uxie, Azelf, and Mesprit.

Being the seemingly omniscient 'mon known as the 'being of knowledge', Uxie, rather unsurprisingly, greets you with a riddle. However, the strange puzzle itself is rather unique to Pokémon Legends: Arceus, and it certainly has had many players confused. Uxie's riddle is as follows:

"Combee. Zubat. Unown. Magneton. Dusclops. How many are their eyes? Tell me each, one by one, yet all at once."

A little mysterious, right? Typical Uxie. The question itself certainly offers some clues as to how to answer, while simultaneously making little sense. Fortunately, we've broken down the answer for you, and believe it or not, the answer to Uxie's riddle is a little easier to come to than you may initially think.

So, if we think about the named 'mons and their eyes, the number of eyes each of them has is as follows:

  • Combee - Six eyes.
  • Zubat - Zero eyes.
  • Unown - One eye.
  • Magneton - Three eyes.
  • Dusclops - One eye.

That's the individual number of eyes for each Pokémon, but Uxie wants us to tell them each amount, one by one, yet all at once. What does this mean? Well, it simply means we should put the number of eyes each listed 'mon has into one number: 60131. There's your answer!

Much of the confusion from Uxie's puzzle primarily stems from players perhaps overthinking the question, but really, the answer is right in front of your eyes... that was a bad pun. I'm sorry.

Anyway, that's all there is to answering Uxie's puzzle in Pokémon Legends: Arceus and then being able to progress. If you want to catch Uxie, you can return to the lakes at a later point to make an attempt to do so, good luck, however!
