The store is one of the most important elements in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, and it is that many times you will prefer to invest some money in Pokéballs and other useful objects instead of having to waste time grinding objects on the different maps that exist in the game, so upgrading this building is going to be vital in your adventure.
You will not have to invest money to improve the store, but you will have to complete a series of somewhat tedious missions. Here you will find the steps you must follow to increase the levels of the store.
This is how you can improve the store in Pokémon Legends: Arceus
Every time you progress through one of the key points in the story, remember to go to the shop to talk to the shopkeeper. Basically, in this way, you will trigger the different missions that the shopkeeper will offer you, which will consist of obtaining different objects (in packages of 3) for an NPC that is inside the Galaxy Team headquarters.
The first mission will be offered to you once you have completed the first area, and before you can get the items. Once you’ve talked to the shopkeeper, go get the items they ask for:
- For the first mission, you will need to get three copies of the same item found on the second map.
- For the second mission, the same but on the third map.
Basically, the thing is not too mysterious, and as soon as you have obtained the three objects you can go talk to the NPC Tao Hua who is in the basement of the Galaxy Team headquarters. This is the old man in the center of the room that you see below these lines.
If you have the items in your inventory, it will allow you to give them to them and thus complete the quest. All you have to do then is go back to the shopkeeper and talk to him to add new items to the store’s repertoire.
You’ll have to repeat the process a few times to unlock all the items in the shop, so remember to stop by every now and then to say hello to the shopkeeper.
