Pokémon Legends Arceus Guide: Here are the game controls



Pokémon Legends: Arceus | Exchange developments: Alpollo, Georok, Machoke & Co. develop

Let’s find out more about Pokémon Legends: Arceus and its brand new capture and combat system that will require us to use many more commands.

A Pokémon action RPG was expected for years and with it also the different actions that we will be able to perform on the field. The General commands are those used during exploration:

  • ZL zoom / focus on the target
  • L or R changes tools or Pokémon
  •  open the Arceusphone
  • Left analog move ( pressing the analog clicks, but luckily there is no need to hold down)
  • Up arrow open the menu
  • Left or right arrow changes the mount
  • Arrow down to open the Pokédex
  • ZR locks onto the target to throw items or Pokémon at them
  • + ride Pokémon
  • X prepares tool or Pokémon
  • To interact or talk
  • B crouch or stand up
  • Y dodge
  • Right analog move the camera

As you can see from the command screen, the click , a very useful function to escape the attacks of wild Pokémon and for exploration in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, requires you to press the left analog. 

The Fight commands differ a little:

  • ZL changes target
  • L or R changes items or Pokémon to be thrown
  • Left analog move (you can move during the fight, but moving too far will automatically flee)
  • Arrow up tools
  • Down Arrow Pokémon
  • ZR throws Pokémon into the field or Poké Ball
  • + situation info (check for changes in your own and opponent’s stats)
  • X Tools / Pokémon
  • A choose a move
  • B escape
  • Y order of actions (essential for fully understanding quick and powerful techniques)
  • Right analog move the camera

I enjoy playing games, and gaming is a passion of mine. Among my favorite games are Tears of the Kingdom, GTA, and Cyberpunk.
