The space-time distortions are a new feature in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Very strong and rare Pokémon await you in these distortions, which you can only find there, among other things. In this guide, we will explain to you exactly how space-time distortions work and which peculiarities you have to consider.
Unlock space-time distortions
This feature becomes active as soon as you have defeated Axantor, the king of the forest, thus completing main mission 7 . When you then tackle the next main mission and head into the Red Marsh, Professor Laven will make you aware of the space-time distortions.
How do space-time distortions work?
Space-time distortions appear randomly and cannot be forced by you. When you complete Pokédex tasks, however, it seems more likely that they will appear. When a space-time distortion is in the offing, a notification will appear on your screen and an icon on the map will mark the location of the distortion.
It takes about 5 minutes for the space-time distortion to form. Important: You must not sleep in the base camp, otherwise the distortion will disappear again. The distortion also goes away if you turn off the game and restart it. So you can’t cheat and save from the space-time distortion to look for the Pokémon or items you want.
Once the space-time distortion has formed, step into it quickly. You will not only find strong Pokémon here but also monsters that can only be found in this way. With each space-time distortion, however, only a small selection of the Pokémon appear. In addition, you can also find rare items such as development stones or valuable nuggets.
Pokémon that only appear in space-time distortions
It is important in which area you are currently located. Each of the game’s five areas has different exclusive Pokemon in the Time-Space distortions. This also includes the starters and their developments. But they only appear after the main story. The table below shows you all exclusive spawns in the distortions.
