In order to 100% complete Pokémon Legends: Arceus, we will need to be able to traverse all types of unexplored territory on foot. For this, the Surf skill is essential. We tell you how to get it
Pokémon games have always presented players with the inability to swim. Pokémon Legends: Arceus continues with this trend. To be able to cross seas or rivers, many times we have used a Pokémon specialized in moving through the sea. To do this they needed the surf ability, which allows you to cross water and even find wild Pokémon that are otherwise unavailable.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus has removed the HM and TM moves from previous titles, where you could only use these items to learn the moves you need to cross the obstacles, this game provides you with the Pokemon mount you need to get during the story. In order to surf, you must go to Cobalt Coast during the story and complete quests for the Area Guardian, one of which is to bring him a Dusclops .
With this, we will have provided the Guardian with what he needs to be able to complete a recipe he has to feed and appease a Basculegion. This Pokémon, once fed, will be accessible by summoning with your Celestial Flute. Basculegion will not enter your group but it will help us to ride on it and navigate the sea.
Other Pokémon will be available through similar means. This mechanic is clearly geared towards immersing you in the Hisui Region. This also presents a unique opportunity for players to familiarize themselves with the behavior and origins of these Pokémon, rather than just randomly assigning Pokémon to move for the sake of convenience.
