Pokémon Legends Arceus: how many endings does it have?
Pokémon Legends Arceus has three endings: the main one (main campaign, to see the credits), the real ending (defeat a certain character and get THAT item), and the secret ending, which gives access to the confrontation against the last Pokémon in the game.
- First Ending: You manage to defeat all five of Hisui’s Master Pokémon and restore normalcy to the region after facing Dialga and Palkia. (About 20 hours).
- Second ending (true ending of the story): after completing the key missions of the endgame you will face Volus, who will reveal his true intentions, in an absolutely memorable, difficult fight and with a final surprise that surely nobody saw coming: a second fight against Giratina. This is how you will obtain the Azure Flute, the object that will allow you to summon Arceus and thus capture the last Pokémon in the game, the creator of everything. (About 30 hours).
- Third ending (after completing the Pokédex): No matter how many times you play the Azure Flute on top of Mount Corona, Arceus will not appear until you have captured all 241 Pokémon in the game. Including Spiritomb, which requires completion of the Scrolls of Light quest (107 scrolls). Complicated combat awaits you, with action mechanics and the subsequent combat —as if it were a Lordship—. If you manage to capture it you will have all 242 Pokémon in the game and you will have finished the game with its authentic ending. (About 60 hours).
What can you do after completing the last ending of Pokémon Arceus Legends?
From here, you can continue completing entries for each of the Pokédex species; get to level 10 in your Investigator Rank; try to capture all the Alpha Pokémon; participate in mass appearances; look for Shiny Pokemon, or just complete all the side quests.
