Pokémon Legends: Arceus merit points - how to earn more

How do you get Pokémon Legends: Arceus merit points? And what special items can you spend them on? Find out everything you need to know in our merit point guide

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is full of many dangerous Pokémon that can harm the player. Whether it’s noble or alpha Pokémon, there are strong enemies littered throughout the Hisui region ready to do some damage. Take enough damage, and you blackout, losing some items in your satchel. But, stay connected online, and other players can return your lost items, or you can return other players’ satchels to them.

It’s a nifty bit of asynchronous multiplayer, helping you feel more connected to the other players exploring Hisui with you. Returning other players’ satchels nets you a reward, too. That reward is Pokémon Legends: Arceus merit points. So, be sure to open up your map and check to see if there are any dropped satchels.

After you retrieve some satchels, you can purchase unique items in Jubilife Village from Simona’s stand near the training ground.
