Trainers, pay attention to your life as you go hunting for pocket monsters in Pokémon Legends: Arceus! During the exploratory phases of the game, in fact, you will be surrounded by fiery wild Pokémon, but you could also have other unpleasant incidents. In this guide, you will find all the ways to die (or almost) in the hope that by knowing them you will not lose valuable tools due to a Game Over.
- Wild Pokémon Attacks: Although trivial, this is the leading cause of death in Hisui; if you are unable to master the dodge well (by pressing the Y key), you can often get hit by the moves of wild monsters. As long as they are small creatures, the damage is minimal, but in the event that you are faced with an Alpha Pokémon or a final evolution of a Pokémon, you could be almost dry. To check the protagonist’s health, take a look at the ink blots on the edges of the screen that will appear whenever you are hit by an attack. When these get too intense and finally turn red, you are about to reach the end of the line! During battles with wild or royal Pokémon you will not be able to heal your character with tools, so pay attention to every single attack: in the battles against the wild, however, you just need to move away from the enemy area so that your character gradually restores. health.
- Fall Damage: You won’t have steel joints and formidable parkour skills, so don’t try to jump from too high heights or you’ll blackout. This doesn’t always involve Game Over, but it makes you pass out and brings you back to where you were before jumping into the void.
- Sudden Mount Changes: The mounts in Pokémon Arceus Legends are very convenient for moving from one part of the map to the other, but just as dangerous if you don’t know how to use them; when you get off your steed or decide to replace it, pay attention to where you are, in fact switching from Braviary to Wyrdeer while at high altitude is not a good idea at all (and no royal or divine Pokémon will come to your aid).
- Drowning: it is possible to cross particularly shallow pools of water or enter the water for a few seconds, but it is impossible to swim from one side of a river to the other even if small in size (especially if the margins are high and you are unable to climb) . For maritime exploration, you will have to wait to get the Basculegion mount.
