Everything you need to know about the evolution in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

hisui pokemon evolution

The meta game pokemon has had a deep redesign in Legends: Arceus. We do not know if this change is going to be established only in the open world titles that are coming out from now on, if it will jump to the main saga or if it is some trial balloon by Game Freak to measure the players . The fact is that the Pokémon evolution has in this title a very important change compared to the games of a lifetime. In this post we will tell you everything you need to know about evolution in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

How to evolve Pokémon in Hisui

Each new region in Pokémon has its new creatures, and also its new ways to evolve. Hisui In this aspect, it is not a new region as such, but represents the foundations on which it would later be built. Sinnoh. However, in this exclusive title for Nintendo Switch, cambios that they had been in Pokémon all their lives. Some of them follow the path of what is settled in pokemon gowhich in turn was expanded in the two editions of Pokémon Let’s Go.

In Legends: Arceus, there is no famous eternal stone. You also won’t have to hit ‘B’ like crazy to stop your Pokémon from keeping its form as it levels up. This time, it’s the player himself who decides whether or not he wants to evolve his Pokémon. The mechanics collide a bit with the plot of the game, since it would be obvious that in the past the Pokémon evolved without humans being able to intervene, but the simplification of the goal has given rise to this new mechanics.

What has not changed in this title are the different types of evolution. The most typical is still experience, that is, Pokémon that evolve from a certain level. others do accumulating happiness and others evolve by doing use of objectslike the stones. There’s also a large number of new creatures that evolve after doing some kind of ritual. We will explain the most interesting cases later.

This is the new evolution method in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

If the Pokémon you want to evolve follows the whole life process, when it reaches the level to evolve, it won’t do it automatically. Nor will there be one automatic evolution when you reach the corresponding happiness level or the requirements for the transformation are met. The game, however, will notify you in the side pop up, quickly showing the sign ‘can evolve’. Once your Pokémon meets the requirements to be able to evolve, the steps you must follow are the following:

  1. Open the Items/Pokémon menu and hover over the Pokemon you want to evolve.
  2. If the Pokémon already has a sufficient level, you can press ‘X’ at your command to proceed to evolve.
  3. Confirm and you will see the animation of the evolution.

Other Pokémon Evolutions in Arceus Legends

These are other considerations about evolution that you should take into account in Arceus.

Pokemon by Trade

pokemon exchange arceus evolution

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus we can get Haunter, Graveler, Machoke and Kadabra, but will not evolve through exchange, as has been the case since the first generation. For the first time, we can complete the Pokédex of the game simply with a game cardwithout the need for external help.

Pokémon that evolved with this method now do so with a object called ‘Cordon Union’. You can buy it at the Villa Jubileo stalls. That is the method to get to Gengar, Golem, Machamp and Alakazam.

On the other hand, other Pokemon used to require an item and then be traded. This mechanic has also been simplified in this title. You will only need the object:

  • dusknoir: Dusclops + Terrible Cloth
  • Electivire: Electabuzz + Electrifier
  • magmortar: Magmar + Magmatizer
  • Porygon 2: Porygon + Upgrade
  • Porygon Z: Porygon 2 + Strange Disc
  • Rhyperior: Rhydon + Protector
  • Scizor: Scyther + Metallic Coating
  • Steelix: Onyx + Metallic Coating


kleavor pokemon evolution

The first stately pokemon that we are facing in the title is Kleavor, a evolutionary form of mythical Scyther that did not reach our days. To evolve it, you will need to expose a Scyther to Black Ore. You can get the item randomly by defeating a Graveler or through Ursaluna’s nose, using the Pokémonture to find items underground.


ursaluna evolution.

Ursaring had an evolution in the past. To achieve the transformation, you will have to expose it to the Peat Block on a full moon day. The object is achieved using the Ursaluna’s Pokémonture in the Crimson Swamp. To access the evolution, it will have to be at night and there will have to be a full moon. Can alter lunar cycles sleeping in the camp, making the days go by quickly. Seeing how complex this evolution is, it makes sense that this creature would go extinct.


basculegion evolution.

Finally. Basculin has an evolution, but the ritual is somewhat complex. You can only evolve to Basculin White Stripe. Y the process is different depending on your gender. To evolve it, Basculin will have to lose by recoil damage a total of 294 PS making use of his signature move ‘Aquatic Envite’.

  • Males: Doing Aquatic Envite with strong style.
  • females: Doing Aquatic Envite with Fast Style.


sneaker evolution

Apparently Sneasel was white, and didn’t evolve into Weavile, but into Sneasler. To do so, you must expose Hisui’s Sneasel to a Sharp Claw during the day.


Overqwil pokemon qwilfish evolution

is the evolution of Hisui’s Qwilfish, and it will evolve based on demonstrating its ability by doing its characteristic movement. Hisui’s Qwilfish will evolve into Overqwill after using the attack ‘Thousand Toxic Spikes’ 20 times in combat using the strong style. It is best that you select an area where an opponent resists the blow. In this way, you will be able to perform the movement three times per combat, speeding up the evolution a bit.


wyrdeer evolution

Stantler’s evolution into Wyrdeer is similar to the previous one. just do 20 times the ‘Barrier Assault’ attack in fast style to unlock evolution.


bravery hisui evolution

Rufflet simply evolves into Braviary from Hisui to level 54, as long as we are in that region.


electrode hisui evolution

The Voltorb of the past was made of wood, but it still had the same bad milk as the one of all life. This time, it becomes Hisui electrode making Use of the Leaf Stone.

Umbreon, Espeon, Sylveon, Leafeon, and Glaceon

Glaceon Leafeon Sylveon Eeveelutions hisui

Although it will be easier to capture one of these Pokémon in a space-time break, its evolution can be done in-game. In the case of Leafeonit will only happen if you have a Eevee at maximum happiness and bring it closer to mossy rock in Obsidian Meadow. About Glaceonthe process is identical, but in the icy rock of the Tundra Albawhich is the last area that we will unlock in the game.

On the other hand, Eevee will evolve into Umbreon, Espeon, or Sylveon if it meets the following requirements and is not near one of those two rocks:

  • Umbreon: maximum happiness + night
  • espeon: maximum happiness + day
  • Sylveon: maximum happiness + a fairy-type move learned

How the game handles the pokemon happiness, but following the style of the previous titles, it will be achieved based on take him out to fight, prevent him from falling defeated and, following the mechanics of the game, possibly, throwing it to hunt objects such as minerals, bonguris and berries.
