okémon Legends Arceus has a rather particular operation compared to the classic episodes. One of the manifestations of this difference is at the level of exchanges which, unlike the most recent games, cannot be done at any time but require going to a particular place: the Etal d’Échanges. How to do ? This is what we explain to you in this guide.
How to unlock Trading Stall in Pokémon Legends Arceus?
Pokémon Legends Arceus provides very quick access to the Trading Stall. Indeed, playing at a normal pace should be done after an hour of play, just after completing the main mission called Beginning of Research: Pokédex Tasks.
Where is the Trading Stall in Pokémon Legends Arceus?
L’Étal d’Échanges is a stand that can be found in Rusti-Cité and that can be recognized by the drawing of Togepi on the flag located to its right. Specifically, you have to go to the northern part of the city, between the Galaxie Group Headquarters and the Dojo.
How does a trade work in Pokémon Legends Arceus?
As with previous episodes, in order to allow exchanges without necessarily having the person in their contacts, Game Freak uses a code system. Both players must therefore go to the Trade Stall in Rusti-Cité at the same time to speak to Trado and choose the Trade Pokémon option!
The next menu asks you whether the exchange should be local or via the Internet. Choose depending on the situation (and if you have the Nintendo Switch Online subscription).
The game asks you to enter an 8-digit code, you have to agree with your partner to enter the same code and therefore arrive in the same room.
Be careful that the nickname of your exchange partner is that of your friend or girlfriend.
When you are good together you can select a Pokémon to send to the other to start the exchange.
Are GTS and Miracle Swap back in Pokémon Legends Arceus?
Unfortunately, as the series has wanted since Pokémon Sword and Shield, only single trades are available directly from Pokémon Legends Arceus. To find the GTS and the Miracle Exchanges, you have to go through the Pokémon Home application available on Switch, iOS, and Android, but you will have to wait for a compatibility update to pass your Hisui captures in the app.
Do trades require a Nintendo Switch Online membership?
The Arceus Pokémon Legends Trading Stall can be used even without a Nintendo Switch Online subscription, but in this case, the experience is much more limited. Indeed, in this case, it is only possible to make local exchanges via wireless communication between the consoles. The Nintendo Switch Online subscription is much needed for trading via the Internet.
That’s it, exchanges should no longer hold any secrets for you.
