Looking to add one of Pokémon Legends: Arceus’ new Hisuian form Pokémon to your team? We’ve got you covered! If you’d like to read a full list of each new Hisuian form first, check out this post before you continue. Unfortunately, several new Hisuian Pokémon aren’t available until late-game – mainly the Ice-type ones – but we’ve got their locations jotted here anyway. Let’s get started!
Hisuian Pokémon Locations
Most of the new Hisuian Pokémon are only present in the wild unevolved. This means you’ll have to evolve many of them manually, and some of their evolution methods are… strange. Luckily, we’ve got a guide for that too! You can check it out right here. Now then, here are all the locations you need to keep in mind:
- Decidueye, Typhlosion, and Samurott are available at the beginning of the game, in which Rowlet, Cyndaquil, or Oshawott is chosen as a Starter Pokémon. Beyond that, you can find them in space-time distortions or from Professor Laventon after you beat the game. Please note that only their final evolutions have Hisuian forms!
- Growlithe appears in the Cobalt Coastlands at the tip of the Veilstone Cape during the day. They’re extremely aggressive, so make sure you don’t take too much damage while trying to catch one. Growlithe still evolves into Arcanine via a Fire Stone.
- Voltorb spawns east of the Summit Camp in the Sacred Plaza. You’ll find them rolling around. Once you’ve caught a Hisuian Voltorb, you can evolve it into Hisuian Electrode with a Leaf Stone.
- Qwilfish spawns near Ramanas Island in the Obsidian Fieldlands. You can also find it in the Tranquility Cove of the Cobalt Coastlands. You can evolve it into Overqwil by using Strong Style Barb Barrage at least twenty times.
- Sneasel is available in the Alabaster Icelands (Glacier Terrace) and Coronet Highlands (Primeval Grotto). It evolves into Sneasler when given a Razor Claw during the day.
- Normal Teddiursa appears in Ursa’s Ring of the Crimson Mirelands. It evolves into Ursaring at Level 30. Ursaring can evolve again into Ursaluna, but the method is rather complicated. See here for more information.
- Normal Petilil appears in Cottonsedge Prarie of the Crimson Mirelands during the day. It evolves into Hisuian Lilligant, which is now a Grass / Fighting-type, via a Sun Stone.
- White-striped Basculin is all over the place in the Cobalt Coastlands, both in Tranquility Cove and the Islespy Shore. You can evolve it into Basculegion by causing it to take around 300 HP in recoil damage.
- Zorua is tough. Outside of outbreaks, it can only be found in Icepeak Cavern. You’ll have to fly around Alabaster Icelands until you find a hole. Enter it to go underground, and you’ll find a single Hisuian Zorua in a large room. It evolves into Hisuian Zoroark at Level 30.
- Normal Rufflet spawn near Lake Acuity in the Alabaster Icelands. In fact, they’re often flying above the water itself! It evolves into Hisuian Braviary at Level 54.
- Avalugg appears in Avalugg’s Legacy of the Alabaster Icelands. You may also find some Bergmite nearby, if you’d prefer to evolve one of them manually.
- Goomy appears in the Holm of Trails of the Crimson Mirelands, but you’re supposed to have obtained the Basculegion mount before you can get there. By positioning yourself just right and jumping with Wyrdeer, though, you can get there early. Goomy evolves into Hisuian Sliggoo at Level 40 and then into Hisuian Goodra at Level 50 while it’s raining.
- Stantler spawns in Deertrack Heights of the Obsidian Fieldlands. It only evolves into Wyrdeer after you make it use Agile style Psyshield Bash at least twenty times.
- Scyther is all over the place in the Heartwood, and it evolves into Kleavor when exposed to a Black Augurite. For more info on how to obtain a Black Augurite, see here.
That’s just about everything, then! As you can see, some Hisuian forms aren’t available until the end of the game (Alabaster Icelands), which is a huge bummer.
