Pokémon Legends: Arceus evolution items can be a little bit of a mystery. While the game is simple enough – and come out to rave reviews at that – there’s a lot the game doesn’t tell you. Many Pokémon need certain stones and items in order to get them to evolve, while others you need to trade or take to certain places.

There are a load of different Pokémon Legends: Arceus evolution items that you can buy, as well as a linking cord that you can use instead of trading a Pokémon. Any aficionado of the franchise knows about the different evolution stones available, but you may not know how to find them or how to use them in this title.

That’s where we come in. We’ll run down every Pokémon Legends: Arceus evolution item, from evolution stones and the linking cord to the other more specific items. If you can’t get enough of the Hisui region, check out our Pokémon Legends: Arceus clans guide, Pokémon Legends: Arceus mystery gift codes guide, or our Pokémon Legends: Arceus outbreaks guide to make sure you’re ready for anything.
