The world of Pokémon Legends: Arceus is huge, and it’s not just new and existing ‘mon that are waiting for you in the Hisui region. Instead, there are interesting people for you to get acquainted with, some of which are vital to the well being of the incredible Pokémon you meet on your journey.

Such people include the Pokémon Legends: Arceus wardens, who have the rather important job of looking after the noble Pokémon found in Hisui, including Kleavor, Wyrdeer, and Basculegion. As such, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to take a look at who the wardens are, what Pokémon they look after, and how they can help you on your journey in Hisui.

If the world of Pokémon Legends: Arceus is as enticing to you as it is to us, you might want to take a look at our Pokémon Legends: Arceus battle styles, Pokémon Legends: Arceus noble Pokémon, Pokémon Legends: Arceus starters, Pokémon Legends: Arceus new Pokémon, and Pokémon Legends: Arceus base camps guides.

Now that’s out of the way, let’s take a look at the Pokémon Legends: Arceus wardens.

What are Pokémon Legends: Arceus wardens?

In essence, Arceus wardens are a special type of trainer with an important job, and that’s looking after the noble Pokémon. However, there’s more to them than that. Given they’re trainers, you can battle them, and as they’re the good guys here, you can also help them out with various tasks.

For example, they may ask for your assistance in handling a frenzied noble Pokémon, or allow you to ride different ‘mon.

Who are the Pokémon Legends: Arceus wardens?

Each warden looks after a different special Pokémon, and you can therefore find them in the same location as the creature they care for. For now, not a great deal is known about these individuals, beyond their jobs at least, but we’ll update this guide as new details come to light.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus Lian


Lian is a warden in the Obsidian Fieldlands, and he looks after Kleavor, a powerful bug and rock-type hybrid that evolves from Scyther in the Hisui region. For now, not much is known about Lian, except that his natural talents make him a great selection to care for a noble Pokémon.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus Mai and Munchlax


Arceus’ Mai is responsible for a noble Wyrdeer living in the Obsidian Fieldlands, but she doesn’t do this alone. Mai has a trusty Pokémon of her own, Munchlax. The pair are two peas in a pod, and share a bond that allows them to look after the majestic creature.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus Iscan


You can find Iscan by the sea, where he cares for a noble Basculegion, a powerful fish that has both water and ghost capabilities. However, this seems a bit odd given the poor guy gets spooked easily, and isn’t a fan of ghost-type Pokémon.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus Arezu


Next, there’s Arezu, and she looks after Lilligant, the Lady of the Ridge. On top of this, we know that Arezu puts a lot of pressure on herself as a warden, which often results in her opting to face situations, and solve problems, alone. She’s also quite the hair stylist, so make sure you pay her a visit in Jubilife Village.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus Melli


This delightful human being is the warden of the great Electrode, and yes, by delightful we mean arrogant, stuck-up, and irritating. Thougth we can’t deny besting them in battle was beyond satisfying. Still, this Warden does protect their lord, and has his best interests at heart.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus Palina and an Arcanine


Palina is a member of the Pearl Clan, annd she resides in the same part of the region as Iscan. The pair are certainly close, to say the least. She cares for a young Growlithe pup, the son of the former lord that lost his life when saving his offspring from drowning. The story surrounding Palina and Growlithe is both heartwarming and heartbreaking.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus Ingo stood next to Irida


Another warden from Pearl clan, Ingo takes care of Sneasler, a noble Pokémon that helps you to reach Melli and Electrode atop the mountain. Ingo himself isn’t an Hisui native, and you can find him at the training grounds in Jubilife Village. He can organise battles for you, which can be vital in not only levelling up your team, but completing your pokédex too.
