Pokémon Legends: Arceus launched on January 28, 2022, and invited players to experience Pokémon like never before. Having transformed the traditional Pokémon formula, players must explore the ancient region of Hisui and study its inhabitants. This is all without the Pokétch, Poké Marts, and traditional Pokédex that we're used to.

This has been welcomed, and the introduction of open-world spaces and rideable Pokémon has certainly gone down a treat. However, with every new game comes questions and confusion, and that's where we've stepped in to help.

Whether it's finding out what a Space-Time Distortion is, learning how to hunt for shiny Pokémon in a Mass Outbreak, or knowing what Pokémon you're missing from the Pokédex, we have you covered. In this walkthrough hub, we've noted every single guide we have for Pokémon Legends: Arceus to help you get the most out of your Hisuian adventure.
