When you're, quite literally, dropped into the ancient region of Hisui in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, you'll quickly be tasked with joining the Survey Corps. As a part of this team, you'll need to adventure across Hisui and complete the Pokédex by catching, defeating, and battling every Pokémon you come across.
While primarily completing the Pokédex, you'll also be tasked with missions that involve quelling frenzied Noble Pokémon, or will take on requests from people all over Hisui. These requests are usually simple, but can consist of anything. For example, one moment you may be asked to fill Gastly's page in the Pokédex, then you may need to find the biggest Buizel possible, and then you may find yourself needing to craft an item for someone.
Crafting is a core component of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, and one material that is surprisingly illusive is Wood. In this guide, we explain where you can find wood and the various locations it seems to spawn in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
Where to Find Wood in Pokémon Legends: Arceus
Funnily enough, one of the earliest requests in the game - Request 18: Please! Make Me A Pokéshi Doll! - consists of someone asking for a Pokéshi Doll, which requires three Wood to craft. Three Wood, you say? Easy.
Well, think again, as Wood seems to be much harder to come by across Hisui than you'd expect. With the region having trees in abundance and plenty of buildings, you'd think Wood would be a plentiful resource, but no. Maybe the Pokémon have something to do with it. Either way, finding Wood in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is not impossible.
However, it is difficult. Given the lack of Wood around Hisui compared to the likes of Tumblestone, Apricorn, Vivichoke and so forth, it's clear to see that Wood has a low spawn rate. This is likely due to the fact that so far, Wood is only needed in one recipe that players will not regularly make – shown above.
What we do know is that Wood can and will spawn in any of Hisui's main areas, from Obsidian Fieldlands, to Crimson Mirelands, to Alabaster Icelands. Wood can be found everywhere, and more often than not, it'll spawn near trees. When it spawns, it looks like a wooden log on the ground and can be picked up just as you would pick up any other item.
When it comes to finding Wood, you simply need to keep on looking as you catch Pokémon and gather other materials. Don't forget to keep a thorough eye on areas that have trees in abundance, and hopefully, you'll get your hands on three Wood before you come face to face with Arceus. Here are some locations where wood is known to spawn:
- Obsidian Fieldlands - Deertrack Path
- Crimson Mirelands - Between Brava Arena and Cloudpool Ridge
- Cobalt Coastlands - Beachfront of Castaway Shore
- Coronet Highlands - Heavenward Lookout (apparently, Wood spawns more often here)
- Alabaster Icelands - East of Glacial Terrace
That's all you need to know about locating Wood in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. As you traverse Hisui in search for resources, don't forget to use rideable Pokémon to help you. Furthermore, keep our type-chart and Pokédex to hand to help you with battling and catching 'em all!
